Default Oh No! It's Monday Again!!

Morning Mates, from a dull, cloudy, but slightly warmer Caribou River.
The wind finally died down and it is much more pleasant at 2C (35F).

Last night we went out to see a show in town by Canadian Country singer George Canyon. Not being a Country fan I can honestly say I'd never heard of him, but I did recognize a song or two. He's got the deepest strongest country voice I've ever heard!
He did quite a few Christmas songs as well and had everybody singing along.
A very enjoyable show, and I may just become a Country fan...

Here's a sample of George's music, a song called "My Name", a song he wrote for some friends who had a miscarriage.

Wishing everybody a good week ahead, and remember you've got less than 2 weeks to be ready for Christmas!

Default Good Monday Funday

Sorry for the corny title but it's the best I could come up with.

I woke up at 3:30 a.m. for some unknown reason. I watched TV for a little bit and then went downstairs to let Kramer out. I was surprised to see about 4" of snow and more falling. So, I let the furry guy out and after he was done I put on my snow blowing outerwear and blew the driveway out.

It will probably snow a couple of more inches before the day is through. I guess I better pay better attention to the weather reports.

I hope everyone is doing well and that all of the Cruisemates have a great Monday and a fantastic week.

Take care,
Mike

Aha!

Donna and I overlapped on good morning posts. At least I am now able to merge the threads so we don't have two of them. I really do like the functions of the new board.

Take care,
Mike

Hi Kids,
Today will be the best day of the week weather wise, so I will run out and get the very last of my shopping done.....since my boss does not open the store the day after Christnas and NY's, this coming Saturday, will be my last till next year! The landlord called him,and asked to show the space today..so I may not even have a job...I am going to hibernate this winter, I can tell you that

Good thoughts, going out to all..make it a good one.

"Good Morning," R/D, MikeM, Trip, Donna and all who follow!

My adored Niece from Clinton TN will be here shortly to spend the afternoon and help me transfer stuff from this computer to an external hard drive. I'm hoping she can do it faster.

Still am having a miserable time always having to log in to the site, even sometimes having to rewrite a post as by the time I go to post, I'm logged off again!

At least I took it in and had it upgraded from 256Megs of RAM to 1 Gig which helped immensely as I was assured it would.

It's going to be a balmy upper fifties under mostly cloudy skies today! But it will be back to winter tomorrow.

Hope everyone has a fantastic week!

Todd

Default Oh No! It's Monday Again!

Good morning from Southern California. Wel,, it's certainly not balmy and it's not yet dried out, but the sun is shining and the sky is blue.

It's gym day for Keith. He plans to try out the knee on the walking track today. Somehow, he thinks he won't need a cortesone shot before out cruise. Just errands for me and maybe some Christmas shopping.

Have a good day!

Judy

Good Morning cruisemates!

Just got back from a pleasure trip. Took my mother to the airport

The problem is her destination is the same as mine is tomorrow. BUT she doesn't know my address there

25 BELOW Zero F here!!!! A bit nippy (like Tiger cheated a bit).

I most certainly chose the WRONG two weeks to be home, and can't wait to get out of here tomorrow. Only problem is I have an 8 AM flight, meaning have to be at the airport at 6 AM.

PLUS, we clear US Customs and Immigration here at the Calgary airport. And early in the morning are when the lines are longest, because most flights to the US begin early in the morning, for all the airlines. My patience is worn just anticipating tomorrow.

Todd,

This might be more of a pain than it's worth, but if you type up your posts in Word on your computer, then cut and paste them to Cruisemates, you'll always have a copy of them, even if you get logged out. You won't have to re-type them again.

Maybe that helps?

Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening CruiseMates!

Been busy. My guests are staying an extra day and it would appear that they will leave late morning tomorrow. Seems like my friend's job interview went pretty well in Decatur. I spoke to my neighbor who mentioned another industrial sales job that had recently opened up. So we faxed his resume off and we can hope he'll hear something soon. He has been out of work a long time and Michigan's current economic situation, really causes one to be less than optimistic about his chances of finding a job there anytime soon. So I am hopeful he'll have better luck here.

Right now, they're out visiting other friends from High School. D/S and I are sitting here enjoying the quiet calm of an empty house. d/d is playing with her friends at the sitter's house.

I am really tired. I stayed up way too late and had a few too many glasses of wine and stayed out in the hot tub too long, now I need a nap and a couple tylenol lol.

They should be back in a bit, d/h ought to be back from work soon as well.

Hope you all had a great Monday.

Just wanted to say "hi" to everyone ! I took a "vacation" from posting on the cruise boards for a while, but I think I'm ready to come back now.

We got back last week from a wonderful Princess cruise to Hawaii !

I've kept you all in my thoughts and prayers even though I wasn't posting.

See you later,
