Kat, I am enjoying reading your story. I don't recognize figurehead because I sailed twice on the Liberty OTS. not on the Freedom.

I also want to add that Royal does a great job in their perks for Diamond members.
The Diamond lounge is very good especially on the Freedom class ships.

Hi Kids!!

A sad day today...another anniversary of 9/11 and all those people that lost their lives.

TM yea My grasshoppers on the ship are the best!!! As a matter of fact most ship drinks are better then on land!!

Kat I have been on the Freedom twice but I don't know where that figurehead was.....

Have a great day all!!

Why did I think you had cruised on the Freedom of the seas? I must be having a senior moment.

CQ/VQ I think the figurehead was on deck 4 near the Casino. It caught my eye because of it's age. The sign said it was from the 1700 century. something about things still be around and being that old just amazes me. Then the fact of having it on such a modern cruise ship is interesting to me because its like the past and the present are in one place. That figurehead was the reason I started my story. You never saw it on the ship?

TM I haven't been to the diamond lounge, but it sounds excellent. How many cruises do you need to enter it? My next chapter I'm tossing in the game Quest cause I have to. I love the freakin game.

I'm not sure, because they change the rules a bit. I believe that now it goes by how many days you have cruised.

Carnival does it by days now too. Which is better, before I had a 14 day cruise that counted as 1 cruise. That wasn't fair to me.

Good Morning Gang,

Happy Wine Down Wednesday. Today we get back into our small group swing for church and small group meetings. This fall we will concentrate on Proverbs. Don't think I will end up as wise as Solomon.

CQ we have to get you somewhere warm. Right now it California it's 63 but we are expecting a hight of 92. It's been perfect hot tomato weather over here. My sweet 100s are going crazy. I should pick them for co-works to enjoy.

Hubby is making me go camping this weekend. I should probably wash the dogs before the trip. Our trailer is to small for smelly dogs and smelly hubby. Nothing I can do with the hubby. Have a happy wine down wednesday.

Good evening Gang.

It's been a busy day for us, but our evenings are usually quiet.

Moiraine, now that you have your teeth all squared away, you are all set for your next cruise.

Good Morning Gang,

CQ - praying for your father.

It might be a busy day around here. We should be starting a bathroom remodel - we have the room cleared and ready to demo. And, we are supposed to have an excavating crew dig out next to our basement wall to do some water proofing. It is rather overcast so that might not happen today.

I will pray for good results from your dad's test. My dad had cancer in 1979 and was cancer free in 1980. Thank God it never came back. He had lymphoblastic lymphoma and was lucky they caught it so quickly. He was first misdiagonsed, but his throat swelled up so they removed his tonsils and tested them to discover the cancer. He was treated at Stanford. New treatment at the time. Scare time for both my parents. We were still young and my brother is autistic. My parents went through so much when I was growing up I have to gave them a lot of credit.

On the sunny side the house prices in California have dropped if you are thinking of moving somewhere without snow and sunny mornings. BTW today's high is expected to be 96 degrees. It should stay warm until monday when the high dips down to 91 degrees, burr I might had to wear a shirt with sleeves on monday.

My hubby was washing the trailer getting it ready for the trip. I saw it in parked in front of our house and thought "I really don't like camping." The things we do for our loved ones.

I know what you mean. I moved to Florida to make wife happy, but now I love it here and I would not go back to our previous location.

Kat, your hubby is a gentleman and I reaaly liked him when you came here for a visit. I hope to see you two again one of these days.

The remodel has begun - at least the demolition - the DW is almost giddy. We have talked about doing this for so-o-o-o long.

Excavators took a pass. We are supposed to get a lot of rain tonight. They don't want to leave any ditches open.

Happy Friday Kids!!

Thanks gang for the prayers and good thoughts....All the tests came back clear....so he will repeat the tests in 6 month or sooner if issues arise. Meanwhile treatment will be changed his current treatment is starting to slack off!!

Kat I'm glad your Dad beat his Cancer that is great!! When a family has to deal with a family member with cancer it's the hardest and most depressing thing to go thru.
OK Kat I'm sold....CA sounds like the perfect place to live!!!

Hey TM are you permanently in FL? did you sell your house in CT?

Have a great day!!!!

Yes we are permanently living in Florida.
We are happy here in Palm Coast and the Gang is allways welcome to come for a visit.

I'm very happy that Kat and her hubby stopped by to see us. I hope that others will come to visit some time.

Our place in Ct. is up for sale but we have not had any acceptable offers, so we are renting it for the time being.


CQ, I"m happy with your dad's test results.
