Default We are ready to go!!

My daughter, son-in-law and 3 grandkids are here from NC and my son, daughter-in-law and 2 grandkids are about 3 hours away heading down I-75.

Tonight we went out to eat on Clearwater Beach as a celebration dinner for my daughter passing her NC Real Estate test yesterday. She has been attending real estate classes and studying so hard these last several months. Now she begins a new career (has a degree in Marketing), after being a stay at home Mom for 10 years. We took a little drive over the Sunshine Skyway Bridge after dinner because I wanted to show them how high the bridge actually was that we will be passing under tomorrow around 6PM. I've read some reports that the Legend's funnel clears it by about 6ft. My, 8 year old grandson was so funny! He kept his face buried in his pillow during the whole ride over it....didn't want to look to see how high we were...he said he wasn't scared, just didn't want to look...lol. His sister's were braver.

We have all of our luggage tags filled out, documents handy, I've talked one last time with my dog sitter, and a quick breakfast in the AM is planned. The stretch limo is to arrive at 11AM for the 20-30 minute ride over to the Port of Tampa. My g/son is really excited, since this was the limo service that Hulk Hogan used all the time before moving his family to Miami.

When we return from the cruise next Sunday, we immediately pack my car and all 3 of us will caravan to NC where I'll be for the summer. I can't wait, I miss my red porch swing and the smell of clean air. I miss the beautiful mountains too. I probably will be off line for a few weeks or at least until I get an ISP in NC for the summer. If that doesn't work out then I'll be back to FL around Labor Day and will be back on CM then.

Take care everyone, and enjoy those cruises!
I've really enjoyed talking with you all these last couple of months, and CruiseMates is the best board around!!!

Have a wonderful time.

Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Courage and perserverance have a magical talisman; before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into the air.

Pick your company wisely! Hang around people who are going to help you become all God created you to be.
