Default Saturnday Morning

Morning mates, can't believe the first week of October is over already!
I have VON respite nurse coming again this morning, just for 2 hours. They gave me 4 but James finds me being away too stressful so I will just take 2. Planning to take the doggies for a nice long walk through a gorgeous fall foliage local park. We all need to get out in nature, and it is a beautiful sunny day at just the right temperature.

Kuki, it was nice to read your post the other day, I imagine you relived some great memories going through all those old CM photos and cruise souvenirs.

Good morning. We got home yesterday before 11, we were off the ship and in the car by 8:50 and really traffic was not too bad.
The tour we took was much better than we had thought it would be and got to see a lot of Havana. For me I would go back and take one of the all day excursion so I could see what it is like outside of Havana. We saw a Cigar factory where all of the cigars are made by hand, and in 8 hours they can make at least 16,000 cigars, it was very interesting. The workers there can smoke all the cigars in a day that they want and they can take home 4 cigars a day. While the building is of course very old it is very clean and while there is no a/c most all rooms do have a lot of large fans running to help. this factory only makes the best of cigars all no matter the brand have the HABANA name on the label which means the best if tobacco is used.
It was strange to come back to the US and not have to fill out a customs form, did see a customs agent but it was very quick.

All have a great day.

Default Saturday Morning

Good morning. Looks to be a lovely Fall day. Keith is still sleeping in.

Donna, I'm glad that you're getting at least short breaks. When Keith and I left MN a couple of weeks ago, the leaves had not yet started to change colors, so we didn't get to see that. Been a long time.

Nancy, that sounds like a really interesting visit.

No plans for today. The coffee maker tells me that a cuppa is ready. Have a good day, all!
