It looks like no one has kicked off the good morning thread so let me be the first to wish everyone a Happy Monday.
I slept late today since the furry alarm clock has decided to go on an extended hunting trip. It was sad to pick up his dog dish and take his bed out of our bedroom but all things must pass. He'll be cremated tomorrow and I will spread part of his ashes this weekend in South Dakota. It was where we went on our annual hunting trips and he loved them. He would come home scratched and his nose rubbed raw from sniffing the ground. He may have been sore but he was happy. It took a while for Betty to figure that out. She would always chew my butt for letting him get scratched up. Once she saw him in action she understood.
Today will be a house cleaning day. At least the vacuuming will be less now. I also have to shampoo the carpet where he got sick a couple of times yesterday. I did clean it up and disinfected but I still feel that a shampooing is in order. Otherwise that's it.
I hope Donna is over her cold and that Fran is doing better.
I also want to thank everyone for their condolences and best wishes for Kramer, Betty and myself. It really made me feel better (even though a couple made me cry) and it was greatly appreciated.
Well: Back to regularly scheduled programming. Have a great Monday.

Good morning from a balmy seventy-three degrees, in Virginia Beach. The temperature will rise to the upper eighties today, a reminder that Indian summer is not over yet. At least I kept some of my clothing for the warmer weather still in my closet and not packed away just yet. I went to the gym and then headed home to put on a wash and prepare lunch. Hava a great day, fellow cruisemates!
Good morning, everybody. Another hot sunny day for us.
Mike, the first thing I thought of this morning was your loss. Kramer is in a happier place where there's lots of hunting and no sore noses.
Well, yesterday was 10-10-10, which apparently some people think brings good news. It did for us. First, Wendell is feeling much improved. That was a great relief to Keith. We hope Wendell's recovery will let him attend at least one or two of the reunion events in Phoenix in November.
Second, my $600 problem with Express Scripts seems to be resolved in our favor. Keith called them Sunday morning, and the agent said that on their computer is an order to send us authorization and mailing label to return the unordered insulin pens back to Express Scripts. We will breath a sigh of relief when that shows up, because that means I will be out of the so-called donut whole, meaning I would have to pay full cost for any and all meds regardless of expense.
We saw a wonderful play yesterday and had a delicious dinner at one of our favorite restaurants. And although we had a good day, it was tinged with sadness for Mike and thoughts of others on this board who have such very serious problems.
Its always sad when you lose a pet who is a beloved member of your family .We lost our wonderful cat 6 years ago . Her ashes are in an urn and will be buried with me when it is my time to leave this earth.
