Good morning mates. I slept late yesterday but I'm up before the sun today. Ugh. I have chores this morning and this afternoon I'm meeting with the woman from our new care agency to fill out papers. Got to love that paperwork. The kid is taking the day off school today and her daddy is taking her to her future college so she can try out for for the marching band. That will be an all day event.

I hope everybody has a good day.

good morning Moiraine, beautiful day on tap here today...81 degrees and lots of sunshine. Taking the Nook and coffee out on the deck and enjoying it. Guess I will also take the weights and stuff and do my home PT.

Hope Todd is doing well. Glad your mom had a better report than you were expecting.

Good morning from Sunny Connecticut.

The weather here continues to be excellent. When I go back to Florida next month I won't be experiencing a big change in the weather.

I wish everybody a pleasant day.

Good morning everyone:

It's been a hectic two days since I returned. I now feel like I've had a crash course in International Banking, foreign Customs and International Diplomacy.

My Mother-In-Law made her move to Poland over the weekend. Long story short; she didn't take my advice nor the advice of her lawyer or banker in regard to taking "cash" to Poland. She was stopped in Poland with a VERY large sum of money in her money belt. Not only is this illegal to bring that large of a sum into the country and not declare it, it is also not smart to walk around with that much money on your person. Especially if you are a 87 year old woman. They confiscated the money and she was in a panic and I've been on the phone with her for what seems like days. (Actually it has been) Why does it bother me so much when I hear "They can't treat old people like this." Sorry, old or young you knew it was wrong and are now paying the price for it. Being a Senior Citizen doesn't give you a free pass. After me dealing with her lawyer, the American Embassy in Warsaw and the Polish Customs people she now has a tax bill for 20% of the money but she does have her money back. However, she paid a big price for thinking she was "special" and wouldn't get caught.

Also: On Monday we were on our way to a cardiologist check up (which went just fine) but on the way we were behind a semi-trailer truck. Said truck went over a piece of plywood on the freeway and the air wash launched it into the air. Guess who's car got hit, head on? On the bright side I get a new grill, bumper, lower cowling, passenger side mirror and some right side body work and it's all under Comprehensive coverage, so no deductible and no "points" added to the premium. On the negative side: We could have been killed and we're just lucky the air bag didn't deploy. The car is actually in completely drivable condition. The lights and turn lights didn't get touched and the radiator and air conditioner look good. It goes into the shop next Monday.

Today, I need to work on "my" stuff. I have banking and taxes to do. I also have to look for a new tour company in Rome. We have too many people for the guy I wanted to use. He can only handle 10 people and we have 14 who want to do the two day Rome tour on the Carnival Breeze. I really wish he had more than one vehicle. He is a great guide and really knows his history. He is also a very good driver. Something you really need in Rome.

Well: Sitting here and doing a mind dump isn't going to get things done so I better get to it.

I hope all the folks who aren't feeling well get better and I hope that everyone that is feeling well stays that way and has a great Wednesday.

Take care,
Mike

Good morning. The sun has shooed away the overcast.
The weather mavens are still talking rain this weekend. We'll see . . .

Not much else on the slate today.

I hope everybody has a good day.

Mike, just hearing about that accident scared me! Glad everyone is ok.

Nice day outside. I'm still working on spring cleaning. My friend who was going to take care of me (post surgery) ended up needing foot surgery so she won't be here after all to help out. She is at home on some heavy pain meds recovering herself. I am trying to set things up so that Mom does not have to do as much to help me out.

Hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful day!!
