Just received a telephone call from Carnival.... upgrading us on the day of our sailing... TODAY.... to a balcony on the panorama deck. Originally, we had an inside on the main deck, then upgraded to an ocean view on the panorama deck to the balcony now. All at no charge! Life is great. The cruise just became even better!

Good morning Gang.

Congrats Michael. Enjoy the cruise.

I still have a heavy heart but I'm getting by. Mom has a doctor's appointment today.

I hope you all have a good day.

Kat is at sea, Michael is heading to the ship maybe I should do that too.

Yesterday the temps hovered in the upper 30s must of the day. The winds came in last night and temps crashed. I haven't even looked today. I just know it is cold outside.

Good afternoon Gang


It's another warm day here in Beautiful Palm Coast, Fl.


It sure is nice not to have Mrs. TM complain about the cold.

Thanks Moiraine.


We are happy here. Mrs. TM had been waiting for years to become a Floridian. She let me pick the location and we are both happy with the decision we made to move to this town.

We are back in the deep freeze here -7 when I finally drug myself out of bed. They have cancelled most schools and city services, including trash collection. Inconvenient for me but I don't envy those guys who have to be out there in all sorts of weather. Don't need anybody to get frost bite to pick up my stinky garbage.

Good afternoon Gang.

I am finally able to relax. We had a day with all kinds of errands to run.

Bob, you take care of yourself and stay warm.

If you cruise out of the Northeast at this time of the year, that would be cruising weather ...


But seriously I do hope that things warm up real soon.

I don't know if I would want to sail out of a cold weather port in the winter. Or more specifically, I don't know if I would want to sail back to a cold weather port in the winter. We left Fort Lauderdale one time in cool weather and I was wrapped in a blanket on the balcony. It was supposed to be warm!

Good morning Gang


Happy wine down Wednesday!


We are starting our morning with some badly needed rain. Since we did not have any outdoor plans today, it works out well.


Have a nice day everyone.

Hey Gang. Mom's liver enzymes were really high. They took more blood and she went for an ultrasound first thing this morning. My gosh, I am exhausted from all of this running around on top of my regular chores, plus the lack of sleep due to the problem with my arm. I'll be glad when we get mom squared away, and I know she will be, too.

It's cold, windy, and sunny here.

Hope you are all having a good day.

Moiraine take care of yourself...Try to take some "me time" for yourself even if it's just for a couple of hours. All the exhausting running around is not good.

Have a good day everyone!!

Good morning Gang


Happy Tequila Thursday.


We are having rain again, and it's been quite a while since we had rain two days in a row.


Moiraine, take CQ's advice. We all need some 'me time'.


CQ, I hope that the days start to get a little warmer each day in the Northeast.

Good afternoon Gang. Thank you guys.

Bob, we sailed out of Galveston on our first cruise. We went on Spring Break because the daughter was in school. We we wearing shorts thinking it would be nice and warm. A cold front had just gone through, so there were were standing out for the muster freezing our buns off.

Have not heard anything from the bloodwork or ultrasound on mom. Wondering what that will show. The PCP told her she could take nothing for pain until they find out what is causing the problems with her liver.

Good news for me though as the neurologist's office called this morning. I've been on a wait list to get in early. I'm going to see him tomorrow morning at 8:00.

Have a good day all.

Good Morning Gang!!

Happy Open Bar/Bra Friday!!
It is Friday right?? I can't keep track of the days anymore...

Moiraine hope all test results come back good!

Cruising from a cold weather port you do loose some pool deck time. Cruised in June out of Jersey and lost 2 days of pool time....And that is the begining of June...

Have a great day gang!!

Good afternoon Gang.

Went to see the neurologist this morning. He looked at the cat scan that the pcp did and it was all right but it was only of the back. He said it should have been from the neck down. Anyway, he said we'd get to the bottom of the problem. I go back on the 12th for a nerve conduction test. He said that it could be a trapped nerve or the nerve itself. If it's the nerve itself I may be in trouble. There are medications that he could give me but they would be harsh on my underlying neurological disorder.

We've not heard anything from mom's stuff this week and she's getting impatient. I think she needs to settle down and wait for next week.

I've got a pot of white beans on for supper. It'll be white beans with chopped ham and cornbread for supper.

Hope you all have a wonderful day!

Good afternoon,

Woke up to a powerless house this AM. Power can back about 11:30 and temps are in the upper thirties with rain. So things are not too bad.

Good evening Gang.

Thank you, TM. According to the ex, I'm not a good cook. He thinks he's a much better cook. Just ask him. lol.

I've had a fairly quiet day today. I've done as little as I manage.

Hope you all have a good evening.

Bob, stay warm.
