Sorry Mates, a little slow withe greetings today, its already 1:20pm!
I got an early start, delivering a trunk full of toys and craft supplies to the school where I will be working next week. Then took Griffin for a 1 hour walk on a beautiful nature trail. I have to say, he has more energy than me!

This afternoon, I plan to putter in the garden and the garage (more sale stuff), then maybe just enjoy a book in the backyard...

Good morning, Donna. I got a late start, too.

Today begins my life around jury duty week. I didn't have to report today, but each day, I must call in at 5 p.m. for the following day. How tedious!

It's going to be super hot again, so outdoor stuff will be done this morning while it's still cool.

Have a good day, all.

Judy

Default Grandeur of the Seas, sale

For my fellow cruisemates, who are booked on Royal Caribbean's, Grandeur of the Seas, departing from Baltimore on November 16h, there is a free upgrade going on from an inside to an outside cabin. This upgrade lasts until August 30th. Plus the price of the cruise has dropped as they are trying to fill the ship. (Several months ago, there was a fire on the Grandeur of the Seas) it scared a few people, but not Rob and I. The Grandeur has been totally upgraded with many added features!

Good afternoon Mates

It's been a nice warm day with just a shower in Early afternoon.

Balabusta, I'm glad that you are not afraid to cruise on the Grandeur.
Since it had the up-grade it should be better than ever.

I remember the quote from Franklin D. Roosevelt, "the only thing we have to fear, is fear iself. One cannot live in fear, otherwise, it will prevent you from living "a full life".

I believe in that as well, and that is the way that I live.

Hard to believe the summer is almost over, just one last big week-end. Kids here are back in school, seems like they just got out....Time is flying, before you know it, Christmas will be here and snow will be flying, OY.
