We had a great ride back up here from Fl. The Love Bugs got us a few times as we drove north, but I had put the Rain-X on the windshield and that helped get rid of them. We also had to drive through quite a stretch of smoke in S. GA too.
Happy Memorial Day everyone. Don't forget to honor our Vets today and those who are currently serving and some even paying the ultimate price for our freedom. A big THANK YOU to all of them.
Good morning, Phyll, Trip and all the CM's to follow. Yes, Happy Memorial Day. I truly appreciate all our troops have done/do for us! Phyll, I'm so happy you had a safe trip back north. I've never experienced the Love Bugs.....YUCK! Today is a day of work for me...as always. But, at least I can do it from home. I hope everyone has a great day!

Yes, it is definately a day of remembrance. Saw the concert on PBS last night. Quite emotional. Carole, looking forward to coffee on Wed. It's also a somewhat emtional day for us. This will be our last one here in Fl for a while. DH has been transferred back uo N to Mass. House is on the market and we have already found one in Mass. the worst about all of this is not the weather but having to give up the ability to cruise out of Fl. so easy. DH says that is a good thing (NOT)
Enjoy your day. I am off to have one more cup of coffee and painting trim on doors.
Good Morning CruiseMates!! It looks like a beautiful day here in NH's Lakes Region. I am officially unemployed! My last day of work was yesterday. This week I will go to Maine to lay my aunt to rest. Then I return here and by Sunday Miss Lilly and I will be heading south toward a new life in Florida. Am I excited??? You bet I am!!! Have a great day CruiseMates. Take a moment to remember the heroes that serve to keep us free, God Bless Them All.

Hard to tell what the day is going to be like today. Seems a bit breezy and cloudy, so guess it may be rainy. I had hoped to garden, but it doesn't seem like a good outside day. Hopefully it will clear up.
Didn't get a chance to post yesterday. Had church, then the Youth Group Bake Sale - we made $285 -so that was pretty awesome. Rushed home and got ready to go to a circle dance in honor of my dh's youngest sister's upcoming marriage. It was hosted by the groom's mother. It was different. Not really my cup of tea so to speak, but I know my sil enjoyed it...so that is what matters I guess.
Then came home, and watched the game. It was very cold and rainy here yesterday.
Have no idea what I will do today - I know what I should be doing, but I hate to spend Memorial Day doing paperwork. I hope I get the sense to suck it up and get some work done and not waste a whole day being frivolous - but I truly want to just have a day of fun.
Thinking of all those who have or are serving our country, and their families as well. Especially thankful for those who paid the ultimate price.
Good morning from Central Texas where it is gloomy, and rain in the air.
Today is a very special day for us. Remembering is part of our every day life, but today we are especially reminded of it. I want to take a moment to thank all of you. There has never been a more caring group of people than Cruisemates. Jim still talks about the times he spent in Iraq and all the soldiers wanting to know what was in the mail for them that day from you guys.
We are so lucky that so many Americans are willing to put their lives aside in order to protect us. Some came home, and some did not. We salute you all.
Morning All, from Montreal, where it's sunny, cool and breezy, which is an improvement over the rain that fell all day yesterday. I managed to get some more gardening done (weed pulling, mostly!) before the rain got too heavy. Will have to finish it up some evening this week.
VTJen, what is a circle dance? Sounds intriguing!
To everyone else, I wish you a happy Memorial Day!
Morning from the Pacific Northwest.........a bit chilly here....but nice....not much going on today.......maybe a little yard fix up......Larry has some painting to do......turning the gazebo into a Caribbean Paridise.......
painting the 'ceiling' a sky blue.........will help on those dreary NW days....
A slow start to my day, and it will continue to be slow. Still waiting on the muscle in my leg to heal!
Thnking of all those men and women that have given their lives for our freedom, and all those who are serving now. I'm especially thinking of our own CruiseMate, Monty, whose son left for Bagdad this weekend.
We have stormy weather forecast of our area, so I don't think there will be a lot of BarBQing going on in our area. Someone eat a rib on my behalf, please!

A happy memorial day to all my fellow cruisemates. Let's remember what sacrifices our men and women in uniform have done for us! Freedom comes at a price. Enjoy memorial day with your family and friends!
