Happy Mothers Day to the Last Gang Moms.


I just the news that I will be a Grandfather this coming January. My daughter wanted to tell me in person and she chose to do it on Mothers Day.


I'm almost speechless, ( which is unusual for me ) .

Good afternoon Gang. Just got back from the vet with the dog. I have a few chores and maybe some reading this afternoon if I'm lucky. The daughter will be in this evening. She's back up at the university helping friends move out of their dorms/apartments. She said she had fun on the float trip. Hope you all have a wonderful afternoon.

Hi Gang


I'm back home safe and sound. Of course I already have tickets for my next trip to Ct.

Good morning Gang. Rain, rain, and more rain here.


TM, glad you are home safe...and I know you are happy!


I was going to go to Lowes and get the plants to pot but no need of that while it's pouring.


My daughter is home for the summer. She has a while before her job starts.


Hope you all have a great day.

I raised a son and two daughters, so it's about time I became a grandpa. After all I'm not getting any younger.


Also my oldest is getting married at the end of June. It's a good thing the Delta ' is ready when you are '

Happy Wine Down Wednesday

We are getting pretty wet around here. Had a pretty serious deluge yesterday afternoon. My weather app tells me that rain is on tap for the next several days.

Woohoo, congrats, TM and Mrs. TM, on becoming grandparents. We are in the "waiting" stage, as both our DD's are married and have plans to have children in the future. They just never told us how far in the future!!!

Moiraine, is there a chance of using a respite service in your area to help with your mom while you are on vacation?? Might be something to look into for your Gulfport vacation and for future breaks. You really should have someone you can "rely" on for breaks, since your family seems to forget you doing this for your mom and for your dad in the past. You would think they would be grateful for you doing this and glad to help give you a break but I know from experience that family is the last who would be willing to help!

Found out for definite that our older dog has glaucoma in her left eye. She had infection when we had her to the vet last week. That makes the eye pressure less for some reason. Monday morning, the eye looked cloudy again (had cleared for a couple days) and she was squinting more. So took her to the vet immediately. Pressure in good eye was 14, in bad eye was an alarming 70. Poor dog probably had the migraine of her life. She is acting better, now, after three days of drops to decrease pressure.

Well, gotta go. Have a good day to all!

Good afternoon all. I've had quite the day. My fridge went out and just had the repair man in to fix it. Then found out that we won't be going to Gulfport. Baby Kate has a bad sinus infection that is draining into both ears. The doctor told her parents to keep her inside and out of the water until the antibiotics are done in ten days. So, the kid and I are talking about what else we might do. My niece said she'd come watch mom if we want to do something else. She understands what is going on because she has a small child.


Haimia, I hope the dog feels better.


Have a good day all.

Good morning Gang


I had a nice day yesterday. We went out with some friends and then went over their house and I got a surprise birthday party.
This birthday was celebrated by two parties in Ct and another in Fl.


Now it's time get back down to earth and mundane tasks such as yard work.

Wow, TM, three birthday parties!!

Moiraine, I am glad you niece is willing to help out. She seems to be a bright spot in your life. Sorry about Gulfport getting axed. Do something with your daughter, even if it is not far from home. Just being with her will be special!

The dog seems to be feeling better. The eye is still tearing, probably from the drops. She is not squinting as much. And she is definitely more "barky" for lack of a better word. Unfortunate for us, but glad she seems better!

Hope all have a great day!

Good evening Gang. It's been a hectic few days. Took mom to the GI doc. She's going to get the stent out on Tuesday. I hope that she won't complain and carry on like she did last time. This should be the last major medical thing for a while.


TM, glad you got three parties!

Good morning Gang. I had problems posting last night. Lets see if it's better this morning. Thanks for the support Gang. Mom is having the stent out, so it will be a bit, but we hope to either go to Eureka Springs or Memphis for a few days in the next few weeks. Cross those fingers.


Hope you all have a great day.

Good morning,

We have had a wet cold few days. It is to be dry for the next few days. Cool today but we are on a warming trend.

We wil celebrate our anniversary today with a couples massage, amazon local coupon, and a nice dinner, full price unfortunately.

Good afternoon Gang. We can't seem to get away from the cool/wet. I thought it was about to dry out and warm up, so I went to Lowes and bought the plants yesterday. Last night right before bed I saw 60% chance of rain. Oh, it poured. Then it turned off cool again. No potting plants today. Ugh. It's laundry today.


I'm trying to get a day trip up for Magic Springs (them park) for my niece and her family and us on the first. I can't get my daughter to say one way or another where she wants to go but I'm going to corner her this weekend and try to set the trip up to probably Memphis. We'll see.


Bob, I hope that you and the wife have a good time.


CQ, I am sorry about the work week from hell.


TM, glad you've had a good time.


Well, back to the grind. You all have a good day.


CQ, did you ever write a review of your cruise?

Good afternoon Gang


It's a nice warm day here with low humidity. The temps are in the high seventies, so it feels like a late spring day in CT.


Bob, I wish you and your DW a Happy Anniversary.


Moiraine, I hope that you get some sunshine soon so that you can get your plants going and growing.


CQ, I bet that you are planning your next cruise by now.

Good morning Gang. Guess what? We had more rain last night. I don't think it was much but it's cool and overcast this morning. I'd like to see some sun. My daughter made up her mind...Memphis. I'm going to try to set it up during the first week of June. Hope you all have a great day.

Good Morning,

Thanks for the well wishes, we had a nice day and evening.

Enjoy Memphis Moiraine. We drove through years ago but can't really say I've been there. Elvis, blues and barbecue, right?

Glad you had a good day and evening, Bob.


That pretty much sums Memphis up, Bob. They have a really good zoo, which the kid wants to hit. She doesn't care much for Elvis or the blues, although she does like barbecue. She'll be looking at the buildings, of course. I'm going to see if I can find a city tour for her.

Good Sunday afternoon gang!!

Happy Anniversary Bob!!

Moiraine I have a picture review on the Royal boards.

TM looking to cruise in August looking around at different rates and airfare. I most likely will cancel Quantum in December. I hate to give up my cabin but I may have to don't think I will be able to get time off to cruise. I'll rebook Quantum before she leaves for China.

Have a great night all!!!!
