Default Wednesday Wakeup!

Morning Mates, it's another sunny but cold morning here in Pictou County, I sure hope it warms up a little for the long weekend!

Well, the good news is, I'm down 1 1/2 lbs this week, but the bad news is my darling hubby went out and bought me irresistible Mint Aero Chocolate Lambs....we'll see if I can maintain or lessen that weight over the next week..

Todd, how are you doing? Hope that ticker is still ticking, and that you've stopped leaving a trail of "wet" behind you. All kidding aside, I really hope you are doing better today and that Jeff didn't throw you back in the hospital....

Mikey "Aarrrgh!", how's the eye today?
We have a guy locally, who's name is John, who dresses up as a pirate for special events at the Ship Hector. He calls himself "Johnny Aarrrgh"!

Well, I'm off to do some exercise this morning, my neighbour and I are walking a good kilometre or two twice a week. Feels good!
Have a good one all!

donna

Good morning Mates

Another warm sunny day here.

Todd and Mike I hope that you are both on the mend.

Not too much on our agenda today. There is allways something to do in the yard, but I will be watching a soccer game in mid-afternoon, so I won't get too much done today.

Have a nice day folks.

Good morning all from a bright sunny Texas. We have cooled off, so the windows are open, and a nice breeze blowing.

We are doing fine, because the storms were north of us. Thoughts and prayers for those not so lucky.

I have been away for a couple of days, so didn't know that you were still sick, Trip. My good thoughts to you and Bruce.

I have to go and read about Mike. He hit a tree?

Todd, called last night, but I couldn't talk. Will call in a few minutes, and get caught up.

Not much going on here. Tonight we are going to a dinner to welcome the new General. Not a fancy affair, so it should be fun.

Wishing all of you a good, safe day.

With much love,

Luanne

Good morning. I am glad to hear that people are starting on the mend. I hope our Texas CM's are okay. I heard that the tornadoes were moving on the Arkansas. I hope they're okay, too.

No particular plans today. I missed the meatball soup at Norm's yesterday.

Have a good day, everybody.

I talked to Todd. He is..........wait for it........ at WORK :o

They called him in for a few hours, and he can't say no.

He does sound much better, so that's a good thing.


Donna, Did you finish your review? I can't find it!!

Sending positive thoughts and prayers to everyone needing them! Nothing too exciting going on in toledo oh, but then again, nothing too exciting ever goes on here. All I know is I have been ready for the weekend since Monday! Have a fancy get together this weekend which means I get to straighten my hair! (My profile pic is misleading, I have insanely curly hair so when its straight, its a big deal...to me....lol)

Enjoy your week!

Good morning everyone:

I can't play pirate anymore. The eye is doing fine. Just a very small amount of irritation and redness. The doctor told me that the eye is the fastest healing organ in the body. I guess he's right. So now I don't have anything wrong with me.

Also: My knee jumped another plateau. I have been handling the stairs pretty well and yesterday I walked all around Costco and Menard's (local Home Depot type store) with no walker or cane, but did use the shopping cart, and did well. A little swelling last night but no baseballs under the skin. I'll be running the 5K in no time.

I hope all of the Dallas folks weathered the storm well. My niece lost the skylights in her house because of hail. They cracked but didn't break all the way through so she at least didn't have buckets of rain in the house.

I hope everyone has a great Wednesday.

Take care,
Mike

Good Morning cruisemates! It was pretty scary watching all the coverage of the storm activity through Texas. It's amazing they are reporting no deaths so far. Those poor folks impacted now have the huge task ahead of rebuilding to a point of full recovery.

Temps heading toward 90 in Scottsdale, but other than sitting on the patio perch watching the golfers go by, today is going to be a mostly inside day for me, with housekeeping duties.

Also have to start tossing junk from the refrigerator and cupboards. With just over a week until I leave, I have to toss or give away all the stuff that won't keep until we're back next winter.

Out to dinner tonight with my sister and brother in law.

Luanne, yes I finished my review, it's probably scattered over 2 pages now, but you can find it on the Princess board in one post:

Ruby Princess, Review with Photos

Let me know how you enjoy it!

Good evening mates!!

Just getting back online after having some internet issues and surgery recovery in progress. I'm well south of the tornadoes and storms so I came out fine there. However, I have a very good friend in Dallas who had her flight cancelled today (to California) due to storm activity. She was very upset. Next flight out is not til Friday. Just her luck!!

Saw doc today and she feels my healing is progressing very very well. Yet when I asked her when I could start lifting more than 3-5lbs...She said "oh surely not sooner than 6-8 weeks from now." Do you know how hard it is for one to live without lifting such a low amount of weight?? I know, I have had to do it for the past two weeks. uggghh However, looks like I might be driving in more like a week or 2. Go me!! Pain meds end in 2 weeks so I assume that is when I am expected to me "healed." Came home and did a very short 70's boogie with my little mini dog and now hitting the sack.

Goodnight and many blessings to all of you....
