Default It's Thursday morning. Anyone up?

Good morning Mates

I did not see a thursday post so I think that everyone must be in bed or they lost their power.

There are some winter storms in several places so I hope that everyone is OK.

Morning Manuel, yes I'm up but running behind this morning. I am so behind I missed aquafitness, and so confused that I fed the cat the puppy's food and the puppy the cat's food this morning. Of course Griffin had no problem gobbling up all of the cat's food and then his own once I realized my mistake! (I wondered why the cat wasn't eating her breakfast, she is usually so intent....)

I think it's all this snow and bad weather has got me to the point I just want to leave town and get on the next cruise out of here.
Yesterday there was snow, hail, ice pellets, freezing rain, then rain...followed by more snow this morning...it is ridiculous!

After work tonight I am going to babysit for my friend again; she is lucky to have friends and neighbours taking turns to help her out while her hubby is still in hospital...

Good Morning cruisemates! A chilly (42 degree) morning in Scottsdale,but with bright sunshine, and today's high is headed for only the low 60s.

Yesterday rain was forecast, but it turned into a very weird weather day in Arizona. About 5 PM most of the city had a layer of white. It looked like snow, but they say the correct term is "graupelle" - a combination of soft hail, sleet and rain.

All I know is people were out having snowball fights, and building snow men.

A very rare occurance in this city, and odd because the day before I was out golfing in shorts and a polo shirt.

Went out to dinner last night with Mrs. Kuki's brother and his son at a place called Cartwright's Sonoran Ranch House that was SUPERB. A very local style of place; superbly southwestern.

Nothing planned for today other than housekeeping, and grocery shopping.

Good morning everyone.

I have been MIA for a few days. On Friday night my darling wife got the "spur of the moment idea" to visit my sister in North Dakota. The spur hit around 10:30 p.m..

It is a nine hour drive to her house so we drove for five hours and spent the night (morning) in Grand Forks, ND. We had a great time with my sister and she was happy that we came. She doesn't get many visitors in the Winter time. Gee: I wonder why. We had to stay one day longer than we wanted to because of a blizzard but we made it home with no problems other than it took longer than we thought and we missed our granddaughter's band concert.

There is nothing major on the agenda for today. We are supposed to get another 3" - 6" of snow tonight and into tomorrow.

Comet: Have a great cruise and enjoy the Oasis.

Donna: Don't feed the kid you are babysitting the dog food.

I hope everyone has a great Thursday and a wonderful upcoming weekend.

Take care,
Mike

Good late morning mates. Yesterday we had ice, snow, and rain. Last night we had mostly rain with just a bit of ice. Now, it's mostly rain. As long as it stays above freezing I'm a happy camper.

My mom has had two emergency surgeries this month, so I've been stressed out and busy.She seems to be doing better. I'll be glad when things settle down into boring routine again! Anyway, I have a doctor's appointment in a while.

Comet, enjoy. I know you've waited for this a long time.

Good morning. It's cold and clear.

I look forward to a trip into Los Angeles to see "Backbeat," the story of the Beatles. I'm glad I don't have to drive into the city in the rain.

Have a good day.

Good Morning
Snow is on the way, we're talking maybe 7 inches.

Back from a nice trip to California where we surly did pack in a lot in such a short time. LA not so nice but Laguna & Newport beach oh so nice and Disney always fun.

Not to much to do today....have to save my energy for shoveling!
