Red face Good Morning Monday!

Morning Mates, I see the size and colour buttons are still not working, which means most of us will not be able to read the posts without a magnifying glass...
My countdown clock is still missing too, I need to know how many days I have left to wait!

Yesterday we enjoyed a perfect sunny and warm spring afternoon outside on our friends' deck, and the most delicious dinner of Montreal smoked meat, followed by homemade Kahlua brownies! Perfect day.

Off to get some breakfast and start my week now...have a good one!

Good Monday morning to you RD and all who follow.

Maybe, Donna, your cruise ticker will be back before you sail.

A typical "blah" wet Monday morning here in upper East Tennessee. The forecast is pretty much the same through, it appears, Wednesday.

Watched the typical "wreck fest" at Talladega yesterday. Because of 200 mph multi-car pileups and rain delays, they finally ran the last lap at around eight last night! The excitement was worth it.

It's off tomorrow evening to Johnson City for the 2nd anniversary of Kari's Heart Foundation, founded as most of you know, by my friend and Cardiologist Jeff Schoondyke and his wie Jennifer. It'll be a surprise for Jeff who, when he walks through the door will discover not only the celebration but he'll have to take the lead with his band, The Johnson City Hit Men, which will be all set up. How they're going to do that will be interesting as all the band members, save one, either work for or in association with him.

As many of you also already know, I've "adopted" one of the kids the Foundation is helping. The little guy, Westin, has been waiting two years for a heart transplant which they may re-evaluate as it turns out that he only has a 20% chance of surviving the procedure. Although we've never personally met, he is absolutely precious as there are bocoup photographs of him. He has, however progressed to the point he can start coming home from Philly for a couple of days every month or so. Instead of coming home this month, he was able to go to Disney World with other disabled children. He has always looked forward to that, especially the "Pirate Cruise" attraction and he finally got his wish due to in great part, the foundaton's financial assistance. I was absolutely thrilled that he progressed to the point that he was physically able to have his dream come true. The tears flowed freely when I learned he was finally going to get to go. I was determined, regardless of the cost, that this would be "Westin's year," and so it has at last, come true.

Although I've yet to meet Westin personally (something that will soon occur), as fate would have it, when I asked that he be added to the Prayer List last Wednesday eveing at mid-week services, i discovered that the man who always sits directly behind us, is a good friend of his grandather's! Small world indeed. Now would someone please tell me that "prayer" doesn't work!

Here's wishing all of my beloved Cruisemates a wonderful Monday and a great week ahead. Of course, prayers continue for all.

Good Morning Todd, Donna & Sharon

Cloudy but mild here today.

Getting ready to head over to my moms and take her to run a few errands as she's still not able to drive after her knee surgery.


Have a great day!

Good morning. Yes, it's wet and blah here in SoCal, but that's really not a complaint. We need the rain, especially the firemen.

Have a good day!

Yes, it's raining in SoCal! We Arizona desert dwellers are in the LA area to take in the LA Dodgers/AZ Diamondbacks game tonight and it's raining!! It hasn't rained in how long?? And now it's going to rain for us to sit out at the baseball game! Argh!! Oh well, at least the rain is helping control and put out the wild fires. We'll play it by ear this evening. Meanwhile, we have tickets for early afternoon to see the Endeavor Space Shuttle at the California Science Center.

Have a great day, Cruise Mates!
