Morning Mates, a quick hello before running off to the pool. VON respite nurse is coming for 3 hours so I can exercise in the pool and run and get some shopping done.
James continues to decline, slowly and painfully, it is difficult to watch. I am trying to keep him home and out of hospital as per his wishes, but it is so hard.

HowD Cruisemates! Donna, I'm so sorry to hear James is so ill. A very difficult time to go through. Glad to hear that you have some support.

Fall has certainly set in here in the foothills of the Canadian Rockies. We had our first snow fall of the season here on Mon and Tues., though it's melted now, and going to be very nice for a few days.

We're leaving for Arizona in a month for our winter escape. But we've undertaken a big project, renovating our house, while we're away. Have a great contractor who we trust very much, so if all goes as planned, we'll come back in the spring to a new look home.

We've had to empty out all the closets and drawers. So, sp far we've given away probably 50 large bags, or clothing and household items to various charities. It's amazing how many different sizes of clothing one accumulates over 30+ years

Now have a large garbage bin sitting on the driveway, where we have to toss all "the junk" we've accumulated. Have tossed drawers full of old cruise cards and brochures. And during the process have come across literally thousands of pictures from all our various cruises. Aside from having to deal with the huge bulk of them, it has been fun looking back at so many of the great times we had, and the fantastic people we've met. A big reminder of how great my time writing for CM was, and how lucky I was that CM allowed me so many cruise adventures which I would never have been able to experience, without my position at CM.

Mrs. Kuki's brother had originally built our home for us. And though he's retired now, he is overseeing and coordinating this renovation with the contractor. We're very lucky to have him offer his help with his expertise.

No cruises in our future. But it is very exciting that we're going to get to spend our winter months in AZ, and come back to an updated new to us home. Hopefully we'll get lots of photo updates as the work progresses. to add to the excitement.

Good evening Mates


Today it rained most of the day but we managed to have a nice day. We took care of a couple of errands and went to a nice restaurant for lunch.


Donna, I feel bad for you and James and wish that I could help.

Good morning Mates


Happy open bar / bra Friday.


We have a sunny morning but we sure had a lot of rain all day yesterday and last night as well.


I hope that you all have a great day.
