I'm hoooooome!

Don and our friend found the electrical problem. There were 2 wires that were completely broken and another one that was loose. That is were the arcing was. All is good again. That is the advantage to marrying a man a lot of mechanical know-how! When I heard the noise, I was right next to the door. I was ready to grab a beer and watch it burn, had there been flames! Nothing like a large bonfire, huh?

Will, you are a good man, helping your kids get their education. It is sure hard when it is happening, but it pays real high dividends! At least you know it won't last forever -- even though I'm sure it feels like forever.

Hey, has anyone heard about the Rockets? I know I'm not a true fan, because I don't watch all the time, but hey, the bandwagon is coming by! Let me jump on!

Good morning everyone - including Will ;

Darlene that does sound scary--- would you have poured your beer on the fire or drank the beer

Dina: I think we had more fun waiting on the "girls" down at the gangplank than we did with the girls LMAO.

okay Rescue - all of us are about to kick your BASS as you said you had a good story and you didn't share.....

ugggghhh Monday, but it's an Irish Monday

Well you know I'm not Irish but I dressed the part anyway today. HAHAHA

I don't know if I'll be going out tonight. I don't like the whole cop issue. Go figure.. hahaha

Good morning to all of you.

Darlene - WOW!! Good thing you caught that and it was fairly easy to fix.

Top o' the mornin' to ya!

We are all just a wee bit Irish today!

Martha, the beer was definitely to DRINK! That is how I have handled mechanical/electrical problems, for years. When I was younger, if my car broke down on me, I would look around for the closest place to buy a 6-pack, sit back, and wait on help! I had to do that several times!

What is up with Rescue? He used to take time to visit with us, when he was at the station! Did they take away his computer? He is truly neglecting us!

Dina, I agree about the "cop issue." In my old age, I have figured out that the price is just tooooo high!

So everyone get the green dye and have a beer at home! Happy St. Pat's Day!

Oooooooo, Daddy!

What makes you think I have a "thing" for hand cuffs?

I have been in "income tax h*ll !" I put it off as long as I could. This is the first year to have rental property, and we put a lot of money into repairs, before renting. I had to sort through all the receipts and decide what was maintenance, repairs, supplies, etc. I think I'm going cross-eyed!

Carolin, I have one, but I feel compelled to give it to her in "some semblance" of order. I also have to separate Mom's stuff from ours.

BUT! I think I have it done! If it were a prettier day, I would drink a Corona and celebrate! Weather is too yucky, though. I guess I'll just chill, instead. 8)

oh i am sure thats the reason!!!! NOT!!!

yep i know, we are the ones who ALWAYS end up paying double :evil:

i might switch our aug cruise to rcl to save $25 pp but i seem to remember that the carnival rooms on the smaller ships are larger. just not sure if its on the 70-80 thousand ton ships or the 40 thousand class

Granduer of the Seas was a small ship.. I've been on big ones as well. Honestly... It didn't make any difference to me the size of ship. I think I liked the smaller ship a bit better because it was definitely easier to find who you were looking for. But the larger ships had more bars.. as IF I needed another bar to go to. HAHAHAA

boy am curious to find out how you feel about the voyager class ships!!


we like the big ships... i like to have lots of space to explore but these are the boats we are talking about the Sovereign Of The Seas (73,192 ton) vs. Fascination (70,367 tons) i am pretty sure its the ships in the 40,00 ton range that had the smaller rooms, guess i will have to do some research

Walter, you memory is waaaaay to good!

My philosophy has always been to just stay in trouble, don't have to worry about the travel time to "get" there!

hey all - you guys are too much fun; leathers & Feathers; where the heck was I when you all were discussing that.... if I had a choice it would be feathers heee heee

now Walter: we are very sorry we can't cruise in teh summer which is the only time you can cruise; & you know you guys really really really (I MEAN REALLY) need a break from winter, so certainly Sana would love to cruise out of Ft Lauderdale in December.... call in sick (sick of winter)

but we did meant you half way: I do recall saying that we had to pick a longer cruise on a bigger boat; which we did!

READY2GONOW: my CPA loves me... he gets everything in Quickbooks and a folder with the couple of things I wasn't sure how to put in the general journal...

i thought you read back before you moved in!!!

it was so nice of you guys to think of us... BUT the Miracle is a sprit class ship and at 88,000 is still below 100,000 mark we call big but being built by Aker should have azipod drives which should mean it will have a much smother ride that the rest of the carnival ships. of course all that is only a guess since i have yet to be on a sprit class. the point is IF YOU GUYS WERE REALLY MY FRIEND you would all just pay twice the price and cruise when we can!!! :evil: besides we moved down to a few ship sizes just to make it easy for you guys!!! you can fit a whole Holiday class ship in the size difference we moved down too
