Congratulations R.D., and James. The lovely Mrs. Jones (Vita) and I certainly wish we could be there to witness that GREAT event. Just know that we're there in spirit!

Morning mates. Looks like it will be fairly quiet here.

Donna, it looks like it will be a good time. I hope everything goes off without a hitch.

I'll be doing a few chores about the house and reading for my Saturday.

Hope everybody has a wonderful day.

Donna and James,

What a wonderful newspaper story about two wonderful people! In the relatively short time you've lived in Pictou, it's obvious you've become integral and respected assets to your community.

Hope you both have an absolutely wonderful day!

As for yours truly it'll be pretty much a "chillin" with a little house work type of day. Though sunny, Fall is finally in the air here.

Prayers and Blessings continue!

Good morning everyone:

Donna: Have a fun day getting re-married. Betty and I thought about renewing our vows but the first ones said "until death do us part" so I guess they won't be expiring for a while.

Today will be a work day with some more de-cluttering. Betty's directive is to clean out the garage cupboards. Throw away the jars of nuts and bolts, old plumbing stuff and PVC pipe. I did make a good start at it last night and threw a bunch of stuff away. I "flopped out" yesterday afternoon and woke up around 8 so I just went out and started chucking stuff. I probably threw out the family jewels but if I hadn't used it I didn't need it.

Tonight is a work night for Betty. She is covering for the weekend tech and she'll be working 7:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m.. For me it's "Guys night out". Two friends and I will hit the Nudie Bars and Strip Clubs. Not actually, it's my "pseudo-nephew's" choir concert and then the guys are going out for dinner, at our favorite steakhouse (Manny's) and couple of drinks. We'll be home by midnight.

I hope everyone has a great Saturday and a wonderful weekend.

Take care,

How exciting Donna. I hope your day goes beautifully, Congratulation!!

A chilly morning here so the heat is on just to take out the chill but the 70’s are making a comeback for next week!

I started making lists for my two cruising partners; see we all are responsible for bringing certain things like liquid hand soap, bathroom spray & over the door shoe holder etc….
So each cruise I print out and mail a check list for things to bring and suggested list of things to bring like a cheap beach towel, water shoes etc… these are thing they don’t think of and then when they see me with them they say “ I wish I would of brought that”, it’s just how they roll!

Tomorrow is the 43rd annual HOUBY DAY festival where I grew up, always love houby day!

Default Saturday is our Special Day

Good morning! The sun is shining and it looks like a nice to do anything your heart desires, like getting remarried on the Ship Hector.

Keith just took off for Riverside. I have nothing planned except some house cleaning.

Have a nice day.

Good Morning from pleasantly cool Lakeland, It is just 74. Fall finally hit central Florida.
Donna and James, Happy Anniversary. Enjoy the wonders of your special day. How lovely to do your renewal on the Ship Hector.

Have a great day everyone.
