We didn't have very many trick or treaters on Halloween only about 15. I'm glad it's election day I was getting sick of the political phone calls. Everytime the phone rang it was a recorded message telling me how to vote. I need to go through my ballot and decide how to vote. I will do that after work. Happy Long Island iced tea election tuesday.

That explains why the water is so blue it's a sound stage. We went to Venice in 2008 here is a picture of the water. It's murky.

I think the lighting makes a big difference. We have some photos where the Grand Canal is a pretty blue, but most of them are more brackish like in the photo above.

I can't link individual photos from my album (boo). I may have to put them somewhere else.

Good afternoon gang

We did go out to cast our ballots. We had such poor choices for Governor as well as for Senator that it won't make much difference who wins.

Here the choices for Senator are the incumbant whom I know and like as a person and the opponent who is estimated to receive 3 % of the vote .

There are 7 candidates for Governor .Its an open seat .The expected winner is someone that I detest .His opponents have absolutely no chance .I'm tempted to do a write in .

I will live with whoever wins the elections. I have complete confidence that the next group of politicians will become wealthy just the way they have been doing for years. As for doing something for the country. That is a totally different issue.

The last time I voted for a Presidential candidate that I had confidence in was Eugene McCarthy .The only others I ever voted for feeling the same way were George McGovern and Dick Gregory . I assume that its okay to list the names .I would not do so for todays vote as that might be perceived to be electioneering .

Hello again.

I don't want to get too political. This is a cruise site and that is what we all enjoy ( cruising ) . So I will stick to cruising issues from here on.

It will be great to not have any political commercials or phone calls.

Wine down wednesday

Enjoy your day everyone.

Good Morning Gang,

No more political commercials unless you have a runoff. Now we can focus on more important matters like cruising!

Good Morning Gang

It's a great day! No more political ads, it's Wed and I have only 66 more days til I cruise!!

it's a little chilly here in Ks. and the office at work is at least 15 degrees cooler than outside, thus I'm wrapped up in a jacket to keep warm. The fingers are a bit cold on the keyboard this morning, so lots of mistakes are being made!

Have a great day everyone and enjoy a glass of wine!

Howdy everyone,

Nice quiet morning here today.
I am also glad no more political commercials.

I am concentrating on our upcoming vacation.
During the next 3 weeks I must get all my Christms shopping done and decorations up because i wont have time once we return from Florida next month.
I am not in the mood for shopping until after Thanksgiving but this year i have no choice. I havnt a clue what to get anybody this year, accept my dogs, the are easy. A Bone or squeaky toy.

Have a great day everyone,

Kathy

Hi all I'm glad the election is over. Much my peaceful without all these phone call.

It looks like we have some people leaving on cruises soon. If you have a cruise planned and would like me to do a virtual cruise. Just let me know the the ship and date of the cruise. We love following along. I see Bahamamomma and Henry have upcoming cruises.

I left work early today I have a head cold. I hope everyone is having a great wine down Wednesday.

Good Evening All,

Kat get well.

Henry a virtual cruise is when we get to ride along with the Last Gang cruiser who is at sea through Katlady's carefully chosen photos of each stop on the itinerary. Sort of like the virtual land tour of Portugal we took with Manuel.

Good Morning Gang,

Happy Tequila Thursday.

We have fond memories of our 10 years in Fla and left many dear friends behind, and enjoy going back to visit them. When the time is right we hope to resettle on the water somewhere. Perhaps back in Brevard County (Port Canaveral).

Good morning gang

Happy tequila thursday

It's wet one here, but we are happy that it is not cold enough to snow.

We are also Florida lovers and will move down there when we can.
