Default A hot Tuesday in upper East Tennessee

It was around 90 hee yesterday and is supposed to be in that realm today with the possibilities of afternoon thunderstorms

Will be perfectly honest. I am no better and I've been here since Friday. I'm being filled with everything from rat poison to Potassium but nothing appears to be working. Don't even know if there's a plan "B" or not and am so disgusted I honestly don't care. When it comes time to lay the cards on the table and cash in the chips well then, you do it and without whining about it. Not saying that day is here yet but methinks it's approaching. Ah well, time will provide the answer.

Hope it's not too hot where you are. Ray and all you other folks heading out on Friday or Saturday, hope you have anabsolutely grand time as I'm sure that you shall. Don't forget to take plenty of photos and please provide we landlubbers some good reviews.

As long as I get to watch my race i don't care whether or not it's here in the hospital or at home. At least in this hospital one can get a damned good grilled cheese or hamburger at 3 in the morning!

Everyone take care and keep cool!

Good morning Todd and others to follow.

Todd I am sending prayers and I do hope that they can find a way to get you well enough to go home.

It's seasonably warm here where I am ( Palm Coast, Fl. ), but it's going to be very hot where I used to live (Hatford, CT.). They are expecting 98 on wednesday and thursday.

I wish you all a nice day.

Geez Todd, maybe they could just stick a pin in you and drain you that way! Seriously, I hope you get some relief soon, I'm surprised that after 4 days you are no better. Prayers and good wishes heading your way, you're not allowed to "check out" just yet, we need you around here for our daily dose of humour!

Yesterday turned out to be one of those perfect days, sunny and warm, but with a cool breeze that allowed us to sit outside all afternoon without freezing. The kids loved playing and I loved sitting!
Today looks much the same, but before I get to work, I have aquafitness class, then all the "pool ladies" are going out for lunch at Pictou Lodge for our end-of-the-year treat. The lodge is a beautiful spot overlooking the Northumberland Strait, and the ferry to Prince Edward Island, and I just visited it on Sunday when my houseguest was here.
Here's a view:

Good morning everyone.

Todd: I do hope they can get this taken care of and get you some relief. I'm sending my best thoughts your way.

I want to thank all those who have wished me well for my "severely bruised eye". But it was a punchline of a joke about me telling Betty to get her butt out of bed and make me some breakfast. I would never seriously say that to her and Betty has never laid a hand on me..........yet.

OK: Now it's back to business. It is official start packing day. We'll get all the travel stuff together and pick out the wardrobe. I am going to check on the cost of Fedex-ing a suitcase from Barcelona to Essex, England. We really want to get rid of "cruise clothes" and not lug a suitcase around Europe. If we send one suitcase to my cousin's house our load will be much lighter. We can pick it up on the final leg of our journey a month later.

Well: I better get going. I hope everyone has a great day and a wonderful rest of the week.

Take care (Especially you, Todd)
Mike

Todd--I don't think I can enjoy our upcoming Barcelona and Breeze Cruise without thinking of you. Kid are you doing what the Nurses and Doc says to do? If you are not then well I don't know. At least my PRAYERS have been coming every day.

I am almost packed. Have to gather up the small what nots and put them in. Hoping they don't put me overweight. Then come the Meds. Gosh I got so much one bag wont hold them all. Well so what I gotta have them.

Leaving on Saturday making 3 days in Barcelona before boarding the ship. Robert, my Grandson, will be having a good time I am sure.

Another hot one for us again - upper 90's in NW Ohio. No rain or sprinkle in sight .

Todd, you quit talking like that and get better NOW! Isn't the rat poison just wonderful ! The headaches, hair loss, depression, etc. ugh! I hope you can enjoy the race where ever is best for you!

Manuel - I'll take your Florida weather - probably cooler!

RD - lovely picture!

Mike and Ray - enjoy the cruise, wish I was there!

Anywho, the DD#2 is back home after the honeymoon. She came over yesterday to haul a bunch o' stuff to their place. I can feel the house getting lighter by the minute!!

Have a good day to all!

Default A Hot Tuesday in Upper Esat Tennessee

A quick good morning to you all. In a bit, we will fight the freeway traffic to Pasadena. Keith should get the stitches out today. Don't know if they'll let him off the hook for the no bending, no heavy lifting rules.

Donna, that's a pretty picture.

Todd, I will be thinking positive thoughts for you and begging the Good Lord to let us keep you.

Have a nice day, people.

Judy

Good morning mates. Woke up to clouds this morning but it's cleared out now. We'll have mid to high 90s. I'm getting all excited for all of you who will be on the Breeze. Go have fun for the rest of us.

Donna, love the pics.

Todd, don't even think that way! Jeff will figure something out to get you better. Love you. xoxoxoxo

Have a good day people.

In this part of Florida we get a sea breeze most days. It is warm but our worst days here are not that bad.
