Already Wednesday
Morning mates, it's another chilly day in Pictou County and they say some snow is on its way tonight. Just hope it doesn't interfere with my trivia night at the pub! Wednesday trivia nights are sacred!

This morning, it's an hour of ice skating, then work. I get a new co-worker today (yes, more changes...) I hope all works out well...

Good morning Donna and others to follow.

RD, I wish you luck with the changes at work. I wish that I could send you some of our Florida sunshine.

Have a nice day folks.

Good morning everyone!

I feel like I'm in movie sequel. PACKING DAY 42"This time it's personal." :)

Yes, this will be cruise numbers 42 and 43 for me. I just looked at my bio on the Staff Page and it still says 15 cruises. I better send Paul an update. I still remember February 4, 2000 when I boarded the Celebrity Mercury for our first cruise. How amazed I was at the size of the ship. (Small by today's standards)
How great the food was. The attentive service, the wonderful places we went and the comfort of the bed. It really made some impression since I still remember the date and have booked 42 more since then.

Yesterday, Betty and I did some impromptu shopping. I have been on a chicken wing binge so we went to lunch at a local sports bar and had more chicken wings. After that we stopped at TJ Maxx and Betty looked at some costume jewelry and bought a new bathing suit. I was the one who went somewhat overboard. They had some nice dress shirts for $15 (Pierre Cardin) that were actually in the "baby Hippo" size and nice dress wool blend dress slacks for $20. No one will ever notice one leg is three inches shorter than the other. ;);):D It was a fun afternoon and we spent a whole $97; including the chocolate covered cashews I impulse purchased at the check-out.

Well: I better get the rear in gear and start pulling out my socks, underwear and t-shirts for the trip.

Donna: While having our "chicken wings" yesterday we played their electronic trivia and won. Our wings were 1/2 off. I like that.

I hope everyone has a great day.

Take care,

It has warmed up from a chilly -8 to a balmy 32! :rolleyes:

Wind is out of the NW a 5 mph. The barometer is holding steady at 30.26 and we have moderate seas. (I wish) ;)

It's going to be a busy day here. I've got my chores done and the dog walked. I'm waiting for my brother and mother to get here. We've got several things to do to get ready for her to move in at the beginning of the month.

Sunny in NW Ohio with temps to get to mid 30's today. Not much else happening. Having the house generator installed in the evenings this week. What fun. The dogs are having fits all evening long!!

RD - good luck at trivia tonight

Manuel - hello, enjoy your sunshine!

MikeM - enjoy your cruise

Marsdude - you like your new weather station equipment!!

Moiraine - hope all goes well with your mom moving in

LS80 - it may only be a dental cleaning, but don't you just love it when they dig at the plaque in your teeth; like fingernails on a chalkboard to me!!

I think I am trying to catch a cold. I have sneezed and sniffled all morning, ugh! At least I have a doctor's appointment already set for tomorrow morning for other issues, so I will just add this to the list!! Oh joy!

Have a good day all!

One of the best things about the warm sunny weather is that it keeps my DW happy. She just cannot deal with the cold.
Of course she is a southern girl, so that might explain it. LOL

Already Wednesday
A really late good morning to you. It's bright, sunny and much warmer.:D

Mike, I'm glad you're feeling so much better.

I plan to test out the new tires later today by getting groceries.

Have a nice day, everybody.

Good Afternoon
Just back from the gym and I must say as good as it makes you feel I hate working out.
I need to do this no less than 3 days a week!
Mike... I so wish I was you right now getting ready for B2B cruises...lucky dog you!
I might be taking a 3 night trip to the Anaheim area next month but nothing set in stone as of yet.
Not much else going on here other than this cold weather.
Have a great day folks.
