Default Friday I've Been Waiting For!

Morning Mates, today is the day I've been looking forward to for months - I leave for Halifax, then fly to Miami tomorrow to catch my cruise on Sunday!
All packed and ready to go, just have to get the pets' stuff together and drop them off at their sitter this afternoon, then a long drive to Halifax by myself. I'll be doing a lot of things by myself from now on, so this trip will be a test to see if I can handle it.

I hope to be able to check in during the week if the internet is not too expensive on the ship. Otherwise, I'll see you on the 12th!

donna

All have a great day.

Good morning, Mates!

We had a light dusting of snow overnight (haven't seen any snow for a couple of weeks), with 2-4 cm (just under 2 inches) predicted for today. Yesterday I was out with just a spring jacket. Go figure!

Today we hope to pick up our travel documents for a last minute cruise. We just did back-to-back cruises in January and weren't expecting to do anything else until next year, but ... my cousin and her husband needed a break and asked us to go on a cruise with them. She spent the last 6 months running back and forth to the hospital for her mother, who passed away about 3 weeks ago at age 96. My aunt. who was the last of my Dad's family, was a special lady, and my cousin is too. It was impossible to resist her request. We managed to snag a great deal on the Anthem out of Cape Liberty, which at least is much closer than driving to Florida again.

Donna, travel safe! We know your cruise will be bittersweet, but Wayne and I hope you enjoy travelling with your CM friends. We hope to see you over the summer, but it will be earlier than usual - probably early June, as we have to be around home in August - we're finally going to become grandparents!

Nancy, your friend will really appreciate your help at the funeral home. It's so nice of you to ensure she's not going through this difficult time without support.

Have a great day, everyone!

It's raining, it's pouring, the old man is snoring . . .

My ol' bod doesn't like the damp weather, I guess. Got all sots of aches and pains.

Bon Voyage, Donna! Have a grand time!

Nancy, that was a good thing you did!

We tried a different lunch place yesterday. It's in an adjacent community and been on it corner for many years, a small town kind of place where everybody is friendly and knows each other. It's a keeper!

Have a good day, people.

Good afternoon Mates


All is well in Sunny Palm Coast. I did some work outside now I'll take easy this afternoon so I can have some energy to attend a concert tonight.
Donna, I wish you safe travels and hope that you have a great cruise.


Cruwysie, good to see your post and I'm to see that you guys are keeping up with your great travel plans.


Nancy, you are being a good friend.


Ray, besides being a big time cruiser you are now a TV personality.


Have a great day, folks.
