Morning Mates, it's Friday and it's going to be a hot one here in Pictou County, with "feels like" temperature of about 35C or 95F which is almost unheard of in these parts. Looks like a good day for the beach....
Here's a pic of me last night at roller derby practice:
I am having so much fun, and getting so much exercise practicing with the girls, I just try to avoid falling down!
Todd, on my way home last night I followed a van with a Tennessee license plate that said "Anne", and "State Parks". I guess it was a vanity plate, but do all Tenn. plates say State Parks? Anyway, made me think of you...hope you are doing a little better today.
RD, your temp is quite warm. We are only expecting 91 in my neck of the woods.
Kelly we don't want to get rid of you. We want you to keep on posting.
Have a nice friday everyone.

I think Weds. at the amusement park got to this old Mamaw! We had so much fun with the girls and discovered that the little one has no fear! Problem was that yesterday I didn't feel so great, just plain yuckee. Feel so much better today but I have to. We will be heading out here in about 2 hours for the West Virginia State Square Dance Convention. It is about a 4 hour drive and we need to be checked into the hotel and ready for dancing by 6. We leave there very early Sunday morning for Akron where we have tickets for the final day of the PGA golf tournament. Weather heads say there is a 50% chance of rain but will be hoping they are wrong.
Of course we had to go to see the grandkids before we leave as they are heading out to Chicago on Sunday. Mommy has to work up there for a week so Daddy took a vacation week and the whole family is going. They did this last year and the girls are so excited to be going back. They loved Chicago and all it has to offer in sightseeing. Of course the nice pool at the hotel is probably their favorite thing.
Everyone have a great weekend and hoping all those under the weather are feeling better.
Good morning A late start to my day but hey that's ok! Donna.... I love that picture! I haven't been on skates in 30 + years and seeing you makes me at want to try and do it again, It is great exercise!
Off to but some new gym shoes from the New Balance store. I kind of miss not being able to just buy any type of shoe however with my foot problem these shoes are miracle workers and worth every penny!
Have a blessed day

Well, I am finally back after our wonderful vacation to Germany. It was everything we hoped for and more. Four days with a host family and ten more days traveling around Germany to see the sites from the highest point in Germany at Zugspitz (?) to the rebuilt Dresden and Berlin to churches in small villages. It was great!
Now, I am trying to prepare myself for thyroid surgery next Wednesday. I wish I did not have to, but I guess I just need to get it over with. Ugh!
It has been busy in Cruisemates land, I see. Todd, you get better soon!! So sorry to hear about your back and the additional hospital stay on top of everything else. Take care.
snorkl45 - you take care, also. Sounds like you had another surgery to clear up the infection with the mesh! Ugh! Get well soon!
Travelgalsue - sorry to hear about your mother. It is hard to take. Hope you have a good weekend!
Aerogirl - love the flower pictures! All from your garden?
Luanne - take care in the extreme heat.

RD - you are as busy as ever!! You make me tired reading about it!
Hope ALL have a good weekend and are feeling better soon!
Good afternoon folks!! Marj and I decided on a beach day at Sunset Beach in Cape May Point. We were enjoying the sun and the breeze when suddenly a big gust of wind launched our umbrella into the bay. We watched as it sunk beneath the waves and the end of the handle looked like a submarine periscope as it moved south. We lost track and gave up when a couple of fisherman snagged it and hauled it in. No damage. Thats one tough umbrella!
Hope everyone had a great day!
