Hi Peeps!!

Happy Mojito Monday!!

A nice hot humid day in store for today...I love humid days!

Sorry to hear about your Mom TM...you read my mind because I was thinking about her and was going to ask how she was doing then I saw your post.
And we all have to live each day to the fullest as you never know when your time is up.....

what is sad is that people get older they get sick need a nursing home and the nursing home takes everything you got...pension, money, house. :eek::evil::evil::evil:

Good idea is to "hide" all assets and have nothing to your name. Sell your house to the kids for $1. so it's under their name. however there is a 5 year grace period. I would want my assets going to my kids not a nursing home.

Nursing homes in this area are about $300. a day...It eats up your assets rather fast.

Ok Peeps have wonderful super fun filled day!!!!

Good Morning Gang,

Happy Mojito Monday - I know things are tough with your mom, and CQ with her father.

We had a good weekend. We skipped the concert Friday night due to rain, but went to the movies (Crazy Stupid Love.) Saturday we did some shopping and then went to the hometown to see the local community theater group do Chicago with much of the family. Turns out the musical is based on a play written by a woman who attended my high school, well before my time.

Yesterday we slept in, went to the gym, came home had lunch, a shower and a nap before church. Overall a pretty good day.

It is another bright and sunny day here in the Midwest. We had some spotty rain this weekend - still a lot of dry out there.

Henry - aren't you actually closer to CT than Manhattan (as the crow flies?)

I don't think the people out in Buffalo would support the merger.

Henry can take a boat across the LI sound and get to Ct. pretty quick.

But we need our states to stay separate so that each one can have it's own mess.

Ct. is close enough for Henry and his DW to come over and make a donation to our casinos.

We have had a lot of things to do during the summer and have not gone to the Casinos in a while.
I should go back to Foxwoods soon and give back some of the money that I won the last two times I was there.

Good Morning Lasties !!!

Just dropped by to say HI, and to thank Manny for the birthday wishes.

I know it's been a while, I don't spend nearly as much time on CM as I use to, but I am still an avid cruise lover I'll be sailing on the Triumph tomorrow for the "annual 39th birthday" cruise

I see that Bob, Henry, Manny and CQ are keeping the thread alive, thanks for keeping the light on for all of us wayward Lasties I'll make it a point to drop in more often to check on y'all. Until then ... be safe & be happy!

Good Morning Gang,

TC - thanks for stopping in. Happy 39th birthday (again). Enjoy your cruise. Perhaps Katlady is lurking and could provide us a delightful virtual with you.

My DW heads to Boston this evening to help the DD nest in her new apartment.
