Morning Mates, at last a sunny wake-up for me, and it looks like a decent day, going up to 20 or 23C (low to mid 70s F). Nice.
Taking it easy this morning; been reading a fascinating book called "Still Alice" by Lisa Genova. It's the (fictional) story about a 50 yr old woman who is an intelligent, accomplished, psychology and linguistics professor at Harvard, who is diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimers Disease.
It's a real wake-up call to those of us who are often "forgetful", and of course, it makes me think of our very own Ray and Helen who have been dealing with this insiduous disease. My thoughts and prayers are with them....
This afternoon I will be meeting and greeting tourists at the Ship Hector, then dh and I are going out for dinner. Hoping the pain will ease enough for me to do both without requiring painkillers and a long nap like yesterday.
Enjoy your weekend everyone!
It's a nice sunny day in Ct. with temps in the eighties. Not much going on this morning but we will go to a dinner and a movie this evening.
Have a nice weekend folks.

We woke to rain here in Buckhannon, WVa. We had a safe trip here yesterday with sunshine all the way. Had a great time dancing and visiting with friends we only see a couple of times a year. Will be leaving the hotel here in about 30 minutes for another full day of dancing. If the rain quits we will be having a picnic lunch with some of the dancers in the campiing area. We usually drive our motorhome here but this year with gas prices we opted for a hotel, saved some bucks! D/H will be calling several times today and hosting the closing event at 10:30pm. After he is done we will begin our trek home. It is a 3 1/2 to 4 hour drive so we may just go about 1/2 way and find a place to lay our heads. D/H is the night owl so he will probably manage to drive all the way home. We'll see.
RD glad you finally get some sun! Have a good day and praying the pain stays away for your.
Ray & Helen our in my prayers hoping things are ok.
Good morning dear cruismates friends from Virginia Beach. I was up and out early this morning. I went to only one garage sale; the other signs to sale I could hardly see. Then it was on to grocery shopping. This evening we are going out with friends to T.G. I. Fridays. Hope all of my fellow cruisemate have a great day.
Its currently 4:18pm here, 21 degrees celsius (I'm guessing high 60's?) rainy and overcast with storms in the forecast.
I enjoyed sleeping in till after 12 Read a little on my kindle....started to get sleepy so, now I am on the internetz at a free internet cafe looking for something to do with friends on this dippy day in Germany.
My plotting for my Sept Adriatic sea cruise continues
Have a nice Saturday everyone!
Travel and adventure keep me going!

Good morning! Sunny Saturday? Not! Overcast, cool, and a nice break that won't last long.
Keith and I had a celebrity sighting on Thursday. We couldn't get in for about 20 minutes at P.F. Chang's and neither could the group behind us. A gorgeous woman seemed to head the group, then a man sprinted ahead of her. When they all came out, Laker Kobe Bryant burst through the door. He's tall (obviously!), but very slim. So many basketball players are muscular and powerfully built. Everyone smiled, a nice thing to see with all the crapola going on in the world.
Keith is getting ready to go to Riverside. I slept poorly last night and can see a nap in my near future.
Today is open house day so hopefully we will get some nibbles. We will be signing a contingent contract for our new house, which they will start building the moment we get ours under contract.
Everybody have a great day!!! Gonna be a pretty one here at the Jersey Shore!!
