Good Morning Gang,

We moved Mom into an assisted living facility under hospice care. The doc says her heart is down to about 10%. The facility is very nice and is almost in Dad's backyard.

Good Morning Gang,

"They" say you should learn something new every day. Today I am going to learn how to administer morphine. That wasn't really on my list.

Hi to all the Gang!

Bob, sorry to read about your Mom, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family in this troubling time.

Hope everyone is doing well, now that the weather is changing - we've had lots of rain, and have been surrounded by tornadoes but no damage in our immediate area.

Doing lots of extra work as I'll be gone for 6 weeks later on down the road. Making a trip to Alaska - can't get DH to cruise, so the other alternative is to drive (his idea - not mine!)

everyone have a great day!

Look at it this way. You are learning a way to give your mom comfort and taking away her pain. My MIL had to learn how to administer morphine to her husband. I understand how hard this is. You, your mom and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

TM have you seen the 2 Real Madrid VS Barcelona games? Real Madrid won the cup. I was sad to see Barcelona lose, but hey at least it was Cristiano Ronaldo that scored the winning goal in the Barcelona match. Then last night I watched a great fun perfect wonderful Champions League game. Oh yeah Barcelona won that game!!! Lionel Messi had two beautiful goals at the end of the game. I love that little dude. What I will admit to not liking was the dives that Barcelona took. Pedro was barely touched and he grabbed his face and went down. :evil: Not cool man we are a better team then that. I was very disappointed with Barcelona on that. I respect Lionel Messi so much because I have never seen him take a dive.

Kat, I do follow all the major European games. I did not get a chance to see the last gamr game between Real and Barca, but I did see the previous one.

During my travels it's not allway possible to watch all the games, but I must say that Barcelona is probably the best team out there.

Good Morning Gang,

Long days. I spent the night Wednesday with Mom - she slept peacefully, more so than her worried son. My "big" sister arrived last night and Mom really brightened up, but we had been telling her the last couple of days that Sara was coming. I think she had been preserving her strength to see her. Our DD arrives tonight and DS on Sunday.

I caught a little of the Man U v Newcastle game the other day last week. The announcers clearly favored Man U but they played a scoreless tie. I haven't seen much from the Iberian peninsula.

Good Morning Gang!

Bob- my prayers are with you and your family - I know what you're going thru - be sure to take care of yourself!

It's finally Friday - now the real work will begin - I think I work harder on the weekends than I do throughout the week - although during the week I'm exhausted and on weekends it's like I'm the energizer bunny

Have a great day and hopefully you all are enjoying great weather!

Hi gang


I am back home.

We had a wonderful cruise followed by a nice vacation in Daytona. Yesterday was a lousy driving day due to heavy rain and thunderstorms, but we made it safely home and that all that counts.

OK.

First of all we were very happy to cruise on Celebrity again.

The food was excellent. I had a chance to eat all my favorites. I had a lamb shank twice and rack of lamb as well as roast leg of lamb. One night they served a tender Argentinean steak that everyone at our table was impressed with.
I had escargot every night and creme brulee almost every night.

We were invited to dine at the Captain's table, which was very pleasant because the other guests were such nice people.

We saw the main shows every night and late comedians and all the entertainment that we could see.

They did an event called dancing with the Stripes. This was guests paed with ships officers. They had judges just like dancing with the stars and the audience got to vote as well.

The weather for this cruise was perfect (maybe a bit too warm ), Mrs. TM loved soaking up the sun and the warm weather.

With all those ports of call there was a lot to see and do. We enjoyed a tour called the best of Cartagena and Mrs. TM even had time to buy some Jewelry. She bought a necklace and some earings.

We saw wildlife Costa Rica and also visited a banana plantation.

In Roaton we did an island tour. Visited Senor Frogs in Cozumel. Went out on our own in Panama, since we had seen the canal on a previous trip. Also since we were in Panama on Easter sunday we attend mass in a church not too far from the pier

The best time for me was on the ship. Besides the usual entertainment, the had events such as ( dancing with the stripes ). This was done in the style of dancing with the stars. Ship's officers were paired up with guests and each couple started out doing 4 dances and the judges with audience participation eliminated couples until we had a final winner.

One night there a jokster's event. People could come up to the stage and tell a joke. I did go up myself and told a couple of them that got some laughter and applause.

There much to do all over the ship. Trivia games, performance by an acapella group . I also was invited to visit the bridge as well as the engine room.

We had the best tablemates that one could have. We ended up going to the Elite Lounge for drinks before dinner every night. Celebrity does the A great job withe the Captain's Club Elite lounge.

There is a lot more that I could say. But the most important thing was that we really, really enjoyed this cruise.

TM

Wow - sounds like TM had an exceptional cruise.

We picked up the DD last night at nearly midnight and chatted until 3AM. The girls are shopping then we will go see Mom. DW made up two casseroles of enchiladas so people can run over to the condo and have a bite to eat.

Yes it was all you could ask for in a cruise.

Also the Captain's Club Hostess was a real sweetheart from Lisbon, Portugal.

Bob, I will keep your mom and your family in my prayers.
