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!
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!
"If your number one goal is to make sure that everyone likes and approves of you, then you risk sacrificing your uniqueness and, therefore, your excellence."
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!
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.

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.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.“
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
Cruised more times than I can remember.
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.
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
That's what I wanted to know. Is he the one with the scarf around his neck?
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)
