Default Windy Wednesday!

Morning Mates, from a windy and cold Pictou County. We have at least another 10 cms of fresh snow, which has now frozen over, and the wind is whipping it over the roads, creating dangerous driving conditions.
The temp today is -9 with a windchill of -22.
On the plus side, it is sunny and picture-perfect out there.

Last night I got some sad news. A friend of ours who has been battling breast cancer for a little over a year, passed away yesterday afternoon.
She was the most happy, vibrant, positive personality you could want to meet, and she has been taken from us at the far too young age of 43.
Please say a prayer for her husband, two daughters, mother and many many friends who are grieving today.

donna

Hi Kids,
Sunny and freezing,with no snow in the forcast for a while. In my mind it's balmy, with humid breezes blowing the palm trees. I do have a very vivid imagination you know

Rd, after my post yesterday,and yours this morning, the Pink Road is just way too crowded. I count my blessings. Such a young age to pass, my thoughts and sympathy to you all.

Food shopping this afternoon, to restock the larder

Make it a good one,

Good morning from a cold, windy Texas. Everyone is delayed this morning, because of the forcast of sleet, but so far, it is only rain.

Donna, I am so sorry for the loss of your friend. That is so young. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family, and to you. It is hard to understand sometimes, why the young go first.

Well, I am down by 15 lbs. now. For the first time yesterday, I could see my feet. I haven't missed much, because they are not that good to look at.

We have all our plans together for our upcoming trip to Florida. We will leave here next Thurs. (I hope) and fly to Orlando, rent a car, and drive to Daytona. We are staying in a town called Palm Coast, because that is the closest we could get to the raceway. Fri. will be down time, and then Sat. and Sun. will be race days. The entertainment was e-mailed to me last night, which I had been waiting to hear. It will be Brad Paisley. This is good news, because we have never seen him in concert. It should be fun.

We will be back in Orlando on Tuesday, so if anyone from there would like to get together for lunch or dinner, we would like that.

I hope all of you have a good, safe day.

Luanne

Good Morning CruiseMates.
Donna so sorry to hear of your friend's passing. She was certainly too young.

My family and I are in the discovery process of the genetic testing I mentioned a few weeks ago. We got the results back yesterday from one close relative and it has confirmed my suspicions of a genetic link to certain types of cancer in my Husband's family. We will have to wait another two months for the results from another relative's test. I am waiting for a call back from our own Doctor to get some advice. A lot of people don't understand the purpose in even bothering with all of this. But it will be good to help our children to prevent them from passing the defective gene on, should they be carrying it. They now have a way to isolate the defective gene during in vitro so that it is not carried on to the next generation. I am very sad to have to deal with this right now and anxious to find out if d/h is a carrier or not, so we can either rest easily if he isn't or be more vigilant if he is.

Well tonight I plan to enjoy an evening out with my Sister. We rarely get to do much together and I could really us an evening out right now.

I hope you all have a great day.

BW, I pray your family gets the best results possible. I do think you are a brave family, as so many would take the other road. You are in my thoughts..xo

Thanks Trip! I feel I owe it to my children and their children. If there was
nothing that could be done, I would question going down this road, but early
detection buys you a lot these days and if we can stop passing these genes
on to our children, it would be a wonderful thing. It's no guarantee that they
won't get cancer, but will greatly reduce the odds to that of the general
population. That's a legacy I would proud to leave behind.

I am very concerned for my Husband. I want to be sure that we do everything
possible to keep him healthy and to live to be a very old man, so we can spoil
our Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren rotten together.

Good Morning cruisemates! Gee, RD and I have the same weather, sort of It's windy in Scottsdale too, but we're headed to a day in the mid 60s.

Very sad news about your friends RD. It is depressing to hear when people so young are taken.

No major plans for us today. We'll just take it as it comes. I know I won't be shoveling all the snow that has fallen at home the last few days.

Default Windy Wednesday

Good morning. We are promised wind as well, but it looks to be a beautiful day anyway.

Donna, why one is taken so young is one of the universal questions. My dear neighbor was taken at age 64, and I think that's too young to go, too. My condolences to you and her family.

I have a recheck appt. with the doctor who did the radiation after my mastectomy. Yesterday, the dermatologist took some skin samples and also told me I will have to undergo a full body skin exam, as Keith did.

Gym day today and lunch somewhere yummy.

Judy

Good morning mates

It has been quite windy here but now it's winding down.

RD, sorry to hear about the loss of your friend. We will include her family in our Prayers.

Luanne mentioned Palm Coast FL. It so happens that we stay there very often and plan to make our future home there.
We will be staying there in april a few days pre and also post cruise.

Have a nice day everyone

It is in the low thirtie's today in Virginia Beach. Hopefully, it will warm up tomorrow. I went to the gym and then did some food shopping. This cold weather makes me lazy!!! Rollerdonna, so sorry to hear about your friend's passing. Let's hope that research for cures for all illnesses continues at a vibrant pace.
