Default Good Saturday morning

Good morning all.

The cat woke us up at 7:10 as if on schedule. Not sure why she feels that is her job to do, but we love her anyway. :-)

I got a poem yesterday from a friend in WI. Thought you might like it, so here it is:

It's winter in Wisconsin
And the gentle breezes blow,
70 miles per hour at 52 below!
Oh, how I love Wisconsin
When the snow's up to your butt.
You take a breath of winter air
And your nose is frozen shut.
Yes, the weather here is wonderful,
I guess I'll hang around.
I could never leave Wisconsin,
'Cause I'm frozen to the ground.


I say come on down and visit me. I'd love some company at the beach!

Have a good weekend all.
Phyll

That was a cute on Phyl! I beat you though, the dogs woke me up at 6.30 am!

It is COLD and bright and sunny. It is actually why I dont like sun in wionter, as it usually means cold, at least grey skies and snow means tolerable temperature. Neuropathy makes cold very painful in my hands and feet.

Breakfrast today with a friend, then I am off to a friends house to finish fixing her computer. She is a senior and has had no email for two weeks. I worked on it yesterday for an hour and the email is up and running fine. She gave me the warmest thank you hug and was literally with tears. All she had to do was ask earlier! I only found out by accident. Today I will finish re installing a few other things and she will be good to go as they say.

Tonight dinner with loved ones for a birthday "week" as a opposed to a birthday "day". I am truly blessed.

Have a great day every one!

Good one, Phyll. Dog and I are waiting for DH to get up. We are supposed to go out to breakfast and to do some shopping, but if he doesn't get up soon the day will be half gone.

I guess Feb. is my travelling month. Went to Nashville last weekend for needlework market, going to Branson next weekend for a Kiwanis event and then to K.C. on the 28th to see DS and DIL. Really isn't the best month for travel as you never know if the weather will cooperate. Oh well, I'll just look forward to our Alaska cruise in June!

Have a good weekend everybody!

Good morning everyone!

Well Phyll and Delft it looks like we all have the same "animal" alarm clocks. Mine woke me up at 6:00 a.m.. I wish I could figure out how to reset his alarm.

For the weekend we are taking care of my brother's two dogs (one is a six month old puppy) and my son's dog. It is a zoo around here, especially at feeding time. My dog, Kramer, basically looks at me when the puppy is playing "attacking" him as if to say; "Get this pup off me or help me God I'm going to do something I'll be in trouble for." After a minute or so he gives the pup one snarl and the pup stops and moves on to terrorize one of the other dogs.

There is nothing on the agenda today. I'm still recovering from the cold and Betty seems to be coming down with it. I hope it doesn't hit her as hard as it hit me.

I hope everyone has a great Saturday and a wonderful weekend.

Take care,
Mike

Good Morning CruiseMates!! I just got in from working the overnight shift at one of the group homes. Just dropped in to say hello before I go to bed and get some sleep.

Phyll, I got that poem in an email. The same could be said of NH. I am so glad to be in the warmer climate now.

Morning All, from Montreal, where it is sunny and COLD, and perfectly matches Phyll's poem! Thanks for sharing that Phyll, I'm sure it will give many of us a good laugh this morning!

Mike, good to see you posting in the morning thread again. Hope you survive your doggy weekend! We had Emma's "boyfriend" here all last weekend, so the fur was flying fast and furious!

I am looking at a day with nothing planned - just the way I like it!
Looks like a good day to stay in and stay warm! Maybe I can finally finish my Miracle Cruise chronicle....

Good morning Cruisemates! Mike, I, too, am glad to see you active again. It is supposed to get downright torrid here today but looking at the radar, it is still hours away so maybe it will be here tonight and will lull me to sleep.

I need another cruise

Default Good Saturday Morning

A late good morning from Southern California. Chilly right now, but usually gets pretty nice.

Keith is on his way to Flabob for an airplane design meeting, whatever that is. I plan to treat myself to shopping and lunch.

Have a good day, all.

Good morning from a wet, chilly, central Texas, where we are also suppose to get the storms later.

We canceled our plans, so to not be out in it, and now they have down graded the threat.

We really don't have anything else to do, so I guess it will be a Nascar weekend for us.

Mike, It is great to see you posting.

Donna, I have enjoyed your review.

Delf, Again, Happy Birthday week!

Phyll, I received the poem too, only it had another state on it.

Everyone have a good day!!

Good Morning cruisemates! Had a brief glimpse of spring in Calgary yesterday, when temps went to the mid 50s F. A bit cooler today, but the forecast is for spring weather again in a couple of days.

We're at the melting snow, puddles everywhere stage, and after taking Sammy out for some frisbee tossing, needed two towels to get him dry.

Very little on my schedule today, other than dinner out with friends tonight.

As some of you know Kuki Jr is in his final year at law school. He is Pres. of their social committe... and each year at this time the law school students hold what they call a Carbollic Ball. Two students make a move for the occassion. This year Kuki Jr and a friend did the movie. So if you want to see what final year law students waste their time with... use the links below

Reminded me of a CruiseMates Toga Party!

Which one (if any) of those fine young men was Kuki Jr?

Nope. He is in one minor scene, but mostly behind the camera. It was he and a friend who wrote, directed, and produced it. The Judd Blitt in the credits is Kuki Jr... which also lists his one one camera appearance.

To even have a clue about the videos, I guess you need to understand it's all related to LSA (Law Students of U of Alberta)

I loved the clips. I think they did an excellent job. You must be very proud of him, and what he has been able to accomplish.

Will he practice law in Canada, or does he plan to do something else with his degree?
