Good morning CS and all the CM's to follow from the land of rain, rain and more rain! This is getting very old. It is very difficult to finish our patio wall when all it does it rain. ENOUGH ALREADY!!!!!! We may have to put the tools to work building an ark if this continues much longer. Nothing else new in the "Burgh". Work is busy as always and it is almost time to start thinking about packing for Alaska! I hope you all have a wonderful day.

I agree with ML!! ENOUGH ALREADY!!!! :evil: Since I do not have to go outside to get to my office in Philly I have not been outside all week. Hopefully this afternoon when I leave I will be able to walk above ground.

Hope everyone has a great day and some days you just need a beach picture for daydreaming purposes:

Good Morning,
That picture looks awful good, Doug R. And the hot temps in CA don't sound so great even if it has been kind of cold here. I am SO ready for the fall. I love the fall around here. UMMMM apple cider donuts.

Thanks for the help signing in Mike. Your alright.

Karen

Morning All, from Montreal, where it promises to be a touch warmer today - nothing like California, but pleasant enough!
Is it only Wed.? the week is going too slow for me, maybe because I'm spending my mornings and afternoons sitting in the park! They're painting our classrooms at the daycare, so we have to be out all day - good thing the weather has been nice!

Doug, I could sure go for that beach this morning! 8)

ML, sorry about the rain, been there, done that! Now I've just got water running under my kitchen sink...repair guy can't come back till Thursday, so no using the kitchen sink. Strange, washing dishes in the bathroom.....

Good Morning All,

Sunny but another chilly morning in the low 40's. It does warm up nicely during the day, but it is hard to dress in the morning as the temps vary so much into the day.

I'm getting bored and went a little crazy shopping online yesterday. My husband was not real happy with me. Hopefully I can get back to my normal routine soon. I'm a little stir crazy.

Off to the Orthodontist in a bit. Not looking forward to this as I really can't open my mouth very much yet and this will be painful. Oh well, gotta suck it up. Then into work for a couple of hours.

Doug - great picture.
RD - the weather is nice for the park - you lucked out. And I agree the week is dragging by.

Have a nice day everyone.

Good morning from central Texas where it is of course hot.

We have received our new assignment, and will be leaving around the 4th of Sept. I signed up yesterday for the airlines FF miles, since I seem to be in the air more than not, these days.

This time I plan on taking the right clothes to wear. Nothing like being out of town, with all the wrong clothes.

I hope all of you are well.

Ray, I am sorry I didn't know about you being in the hospital, so hope today, brings you pain free.

Take care everyone

Luanne

How's this for irony: note what is under wraps on that trailer;
seems this lady in Ohio was tired of the truckers making wakes, so she got out and stopped him

Good morning, Mates!

Not sure what the day will hold for me. A little of this, some of that. I may have to take time to ride to Galveston and just check out the gulf.

Trip, I will also get a little more serious about packing.

Everyone have a great day!

Mornin' everybody,

I've been a little busy this week, so I haven't been able to get on the 'puter. Things have slowed down a bit, so I thought I'd take an official Cruisemates break.

The weather outside is still yucky, but it's going to warm up by the weekend. We've got another preseason football game up in Buffalo Friday, so I'm forced to take another vacation day. Oh, how I hate four day weeks! The weather is goin got be much warmer for this game than the last one. In fact, scattered t'storms are forecast for the afternoon. I hope they roll through before game time.

Have a great day!

Ed

Morning all,,

Nothing much going on here on the east coast of Va. Cloudy/overcast but in the 80's today. Big storms came thru last night,,,remnants of Erin.

Guess everyone is busy getting the kids back in school as business is very slow,,,,think I need to take a vacation.

Good Morning!

My week has only just begun! I have the weekend off from job #2....grandchildren will be visiting (first trip home since they moved to Beaumont, TX). Then we get to go to New Orleans for a baby shower! Weather is hot and humid as usual....but I promised not to complain about the weather as long as the hurricanes stay away!

Have a wonderful day!

Good afternoon:

I'm just waiting to hear from my daughter. Kramer, the six million dollar dog, is having a cyst removed from his side. Betty took him over to my daughter (the vet) to get it done. I stayed home because I'm not feeling the greatest today. He's under now and it should only take about a half hour to get it done. My daughter doesn't think it's anything more than a fatty cyst but she won't really know until she sees it and it's biopsied.

Otherwise I'm just wandering around the house and playing online.

Take care,
Mike

Good day cruisemates! A 70s F kinda day in Calgary.

Spent the morning attempting to get some correct info from our accountant, Willie Messup.

Just came in from a walk and a round of frisbee toss with Sammy.

My afternoon excitement may be a trip to Costco.

Good afternoon everybody! DH and I overslept this morning and I had to take my mom to the dr. so I just got home. 95F outside but nice and cool in the AC. Sorry about the six-million-dollar dog, hope everything comes out OK. Wish I had a vet in the family - with 3 cats and a dog, I need one. All you folks packing for cruises need to stop gloating- just kidding. But really, stop it!
