Default Good Morning Saturday!

Morning Mates, it's a lovely Saturday out there, another perfect weather day, not too hot, not too cold. Will enjoy it while I can, I know what's coming...

Yesterday I got a reprieve from gardening. A friend called and invited us to lunch at the golf club where she works. We had a lovely meal (cold meat and salad plate), while sitting on the deck overlooking the gorgeous golf course. What a treat that was to get out and do something different!

Today I am off to the Ship Hector to talk to the tourists. The other day I took this photo from a nearby lighthouse, a long shot view of the ship without its masts and rigging. In fact, the big black thing in front of it is the crow's nest, lying down in the yard. There is so much repair work going on there this summer, and I get to watch it all in progress.

Good morning Donna, and all those to follow. It is a beautiful Texas morning. We managed to get a little rain yesterday, and it kept things below 100.

My house is quiet this morning. Josh is at work, and Jim is fishing. I need to pick up and then head to the store, for some much needed groceries

I hope all of you have a good Saturday.

Good morning from Raining Palm Coast Florida.

We do need some rain and I'm sure that we will get some sun before too long.
This afternoon we will be flying back to Ct. We have some affairs to take care of regarding the sale of our property.

Have a nice weekend folks.

Good morning everyone:

It's a beautiful morning in the north country. Blue skies, temps in the mid sixties and low humidity. I am really not sure what we'll be doing today. I think the boss will put me to work unless I can think of something to distract her.

Yesterday Betty had an endoscopy and we'll see what the results are but the preliminary looked pretty good. A bit of irritation in the esophagus but otherwise nothing big.

My brain decided to take a vacation while I was making dinner. After I had my "drugs" I guess I finished making dinner and ate well. Betty told me this morning it was delicious. Roast chicken, onion and garlic mashed potatoes and fresh green beans. I guess I can even cook while gorked. I was asleep by 6:30 p.m. and slept for eleven hours. I feel great today.

Donna: Are they still giving tours of Ship Hector while it's being renovated?

I hope everyone has a great weekend and if any of you have good ideas how to distract Betty from putting me to work, let me know.

Take care,

Good Morning
Looks as if summer is coming back our way.

I have my nieces first block party today and will be picking her father from the airport as he will be in town from Vegas for the next two weeks.

Hoe everyone has a good Saturday.

Yes Mike, the Ship Hector remains open to visitors throughout the repairs, in fact watching the work being done is part of the attraction. Some visitors even participate in some of the action, and tourists are amazed that so much of it is being sone by volunteers.
