Default It's finally Friday! Good morning, Cruisemates!

Is it true? Is it finally Friday? And to top it off, it's the beginning of a long weekend! YAY!!!!!! Good morning, Cruisemates! In just 8 days, Gary and I will be winging our way to Seattle to board NCL's Pearl. I cannot wait!!!!!! I am sure next week will be the week from "you know where", but, I can get through it knowing there is a cruise on the horizon. Today starts off the official preparation because I'm getting my pedicure this afternoon. I hope you all have a wonderful day and weekend.

Good morning ML and those to follow

Supposed to be a warm and sunny day in Toronto today, and an even better weekend.

Have a good day everyone.

Good morning from Orlando. Mary Lou, at least next week will be a short week from $&(( and what a prize at the end of it! Good for you!
Not much going on here....still getting used to the empty nest. We'll be watching the FSU/Clemson game Monday night looking for a glimpse of Jimmy playing with the band.

Good Morning All!!! My home state boys at Rutgers started out their season with a victory over mighty Buffalo to a sold out crowd last night. Being a national power is somthing new for us. I need to know from fans of other schools such as Penn State, USC, Texas, et al, does it get boring after a while? While I graduated from another school, it doesn't play football so I adopted the Scarlet Knights as my dad is an alumni.

ML from experience the last week before all of my cruises were he**. This one upcoming will be a little different as I will be at a conference in Tampa the week before the cruise, returning just in time to finish packing and load the car for the trek to the airport .

Hope everyone has a great holiday weekend!!!

Morning All, from Montreal, where' it's dull, gray, and looks like rain. It's also only 14C (57F) this morning, which makes it feel like fall is coming!

Another classroom prep day today, long and tiring, but then it will be a 3 day weekend! I wish I had a cruise lined up like ML, but I will just have to set my sights on Nov. when I will have my "land vacation"..

Today is a special day for my granddaughter: she turns 5 yrs. old AND starts kindergarten! I can't believe she is so grown up already!

Good Morning All,

Have the same weather as RD - wish I could have slept in and taken advantage of it.

Work from home today, tho' feel like doing absolutely nothing.
All of a sudden my face has started swelling up again - I'm assuming it is part of the healing progress, but not sure as the swelling was pretty much gone for almost two weeks, and now it is back.

No plans for the long weekend. Just try to get caught up on stuff I guess.

ML - hopefully your week won't be too bad
Doug - love the flamingo
Trip - have fun with Aiden

Wishing you all a lovely day

Morning all,,,

The weather here on the east coast of Va. is fabulous. Mid 70's this a.m. only expected into the 80's all weekend,,,but sunny. What a way to end the summer.

I am not so lucky to be looking forward to a cruise soon. Nothing booked,,,,but I am looking.

We were supposed to be leaving for Key West land cruise this Sat,,but things just didn't work out. I am gonna be in a bad mood all week,,,my cousins are going without us.

Hope eveyone has a great long weekend,,,I am already @ the "rivah" so it has started for me.

Good Morning cruisemates! Temps in high 70s F for Calgary for the end of the work week.

Mrs. Kuki is working half a day and then we're driving north to the largest indoor campground she knows.... the West Edmonton Mall

Being a long weekend, there's sure to be lots of traffic, and lots of police monitoring the highway... so I guess I obey the speed limit this trip

Default It's Finally Friday! Good Morning, CruiseMates

Good morning from a relentlessly hot Southern California. A $225 electric bill yesterday.

Mary Lou, lucky you! No activity here on the travel front. We've talked about a land trip, but I don't think it will happen . . . need something simpler, like a cruise!

Gym day for Keith and ironing for me. I need a good book to tide me over this heat wave.

Have a good day, all.

Judy

Well good morning cruisemates. It was raining upon me as I made my trek into work but now it is clearing.

I'll have Monday off and I need it.
