    :cheer:Good morning all. Come join us in a cuppa and some chat. Up and moving earlly this morning think it is excitement as cruise comes closer. Had a lot of storms go thru here last night-thunder, lightening rain and little wind. Everything sure looking green this morning. Paw has a list of chores to do this week -his eye is a mess so he is calling eye Dr.,he has to get batteries for his scooter and he is hoping to get in for adjustment on the hearing aide he has not worn for last year. Sure am hoping he can get it to hearing better. He can not hear me any more - I just can't holler that loud and get tired trying. He needs to be looking at you and he reads llips alot=think he looks other way when he wants not to hear. I have apppointments next week for massage, hair and nails. We will head to KC on Thursday and will fly out for great frozen north on Friday morning.

    Bedroom should look better once I get all stuff hanging around into suitcase(I am being hopeful one suitcase will do it.)

    Hope everyone's allergys and colds are better today. What happened to you over the weekend? Best wishes to all.:sunny:

    Good Morning Maw & @ddict friends
    Maw you sure are an early bird this morning. I think you are right must be the excitement of the cruise. Whats my excuse? I dont have a cruise until next March & I was up at 5:00am. Sometimes when I get up that early it makes for a long day.
    It sounds like you have a few busy days coming up.
    We didnt have rain last night but had our storms the night before. So far in May we have had about 4 & a half inches of rain. It has rained every dy in May so far. They say no rain today & we should have sun I hope so.
    I have a chiropractor appointment later & thats it for today.
    Take care

    Good morning Maw, Jan and Ramblers to follow. Cloudy here this morning and we will be in the 70s.

    Maw, sure hope Paw can get all that taken card of before cruise time! I sure hope it isn't anything serious with his eye!

    Jan, hope the chio treatments kick in for you!

    Not much to report....crazy day at home yesterday with all the kids and dogs...glad the sun came out so they could all be outside. Our ham dinner and all the fixing sure was good...but no birthday cake! How can you have a birthday party without cake! Jen's excuse was they had a cake at the "kids" party LOL.

    Well, hope you all survived your weekend and have a good week ahead.

    Good morning.

    Maw, you sure are up early. Is it as warm there as it has been here? We were in the 90's yesterday. Supposed to cool off this week, back into more seasonable temps in the 70's. Rain today bringing in the cool front.

    Jan, we have had a lot of rain too. It's good, means we haven't had to water the garden, nature has done it for us.

    Denise, glad you had a nice family dinner yesterday. I agree, got to have cake for a birthday party!

    I bought an iPad yesterday. I had them put an anti glare screen saver on but I am not happy with the clarity. I think I am going to take it back today and see if they will put a different one on. Whats the point of having this high resolution if it looks grainy?

    I have appointments this morning and this afternoon. I hope I can do it all in between the storms and/or rain.

    Good Morning Everyone!

    Back to work and the start of another week for me - at least I got my dishwasher in yesterday - but still no plumbing to the sink. The plumber is going to try and get over today. The old sink was 5" deep and the new one is 10 1/2" deep - so some pipes need to be cut. Oh well, another couple days won't hurt! lol

    Went shopping and only got 1 top - I just could not find anything! It was fun talking cruise with the gril's though. We found alot of things we want when they come on sail - since we don't cruise til next Feb.

    Went to a garage sale and hooked up Jason & Hope with a ton of baby stuff. It all looks brand new - so have to get that box in the mail. They are having a baby shower for her in Indy and I want a box to be there. Although, I bought their bed/dresser combo and their stoller and car seat. I just love baby stuff! lol

    Supposed to rain today and it is gray and cloudy. So, it looks like it is on the way! Off to work I go - hope you all have a great day!

    Good morning gang. Another rainy day here. Had T-storms all night long but nothing severe, just loud.
    Did get enough dry time over the weekend to get the yard work done but with rain again it means the kids are shut inside.

    Maw, can't believe how early you're up. I can feel your excitement building with your cruise so close.

    Not much happening here. Enjoy your day.

    Good morning fellow @ddicts! ! ! We had a nice relaxing weekend. Caught up on watching the things that were on DVR and of course, hockey. The Fairbanks Ice Dogs made it through round one and play in the semi's today. Finals are tomorrow. It sure would be great if they could be repeat Robertson Cup winners.

    Megs arrived yesterday with her u-haul full of her things. Everything is now stored in the garage until she gets a place in Delta Junction. Then she and her friends will be packing it up and taking it there.

    We had a VERY nice dinner. I bought some tenderloin last week and Bread and I picked up some veggies yesterday. I cooked everything on the grill. I just had to try that new applewood flavored salt we ordered. Thank you Nieciez! It was GREAT!

    Back to the old grind today. Have a GREAT day everyone and stay safe! ! !

    Good morning. Tis a lovely sunny morning here. There are a lot of good sales here but the one item that I bought I returned. And my dd went to 2 malls & several stores & found only one top.

    Talked to the girl who has Lacey now & Lacey is doing well. She is on a diet & not getting all the treats that she got here! Plus she has acres to run on & other dogs to run with.

    I have dust bunnies to chase - again - plus the Y today.

    Another rainy day in store for us. Last night we had thunderstorms and alot of lightening. It made for a restless nights sleep.

    Have laundry churning and floors already mopped. No plans for the day, we'll just relax and see how we feel later.

    Terry, Enjoy the visit with your daughter.

    Tobyn, Same with you, enjoy the time Meg is home.

    Good Afternoon Everyone

    Took DH to the doctor this morning for his monthly B-12 shot. Then had to go to the Hallmark store to pick up some cards.

    In about 1/2 hour we will be back on the road -- this time I have to take DH to the eye doctor -- routine check-up -- but he hates those eye drops.

    MAW -- I am prone to eye styes as well. I am presently treating one now -- have to bath the eye 4 times a day with warm compresses (keep on for 10 minutes) -- then I have a cream I have to apply -- Erythomycin Ophthalmic Ointment -- prescription from my eye doctor.

    Everyone have a good day.

    Morning Maw and ramblers all and welcome back to all of you from the California Coastal cruise! Hope you had a wonderful time.

    It was a nice weekend here. The weather was sunny and warm...not hot but a lot warmer than it was last week. Jacket or sweater is still required for me though. It finally looks like spring...a few daffys and crocus and most of the grass has turned green. Loads of people out working in their yards this weekend so everything is looking very fresh.

    I noted yesterday that the final payment for my cruise is coming up next month...and I am having a little bit of leaky eye disease knowing I will not be sharing all that joy, excitement and afterglow with Mary Ann. I'm missing her very much today.

    Nothing but laundry on my agenda today...and of course my daily dose of caffeine at Timmy's. I'm going to finish up another scrapbook card today.

    Have a wonderful day everyone. Stay safe and be happy in it!

    Afternoon Maw, Paw, Janpep and C@ Gang!!

    We've been out today, running around doing stuff. One thing we did was to buy tickets to the Broadway production of CATS. We have a new auditorium here, called Skypac...and this is one of the professional shows they are bringing in this year. The show in on Mothers Day and we almost waited too long to get our tickets. The Matinee was sold out, and the 7:30 show is almost sold out. But we still snagged our 2 tickets. Going so late though we'll have something here at the house to eat before going.

    The other day I bought tickets to see Roger Waters on tour doing The Wall. I am so pumped over being able to do this. It is in Louisville and we will go up, do the concert and then spend the night. I bought my son tickets to this tour in Oregon back in Dec. '10 and had forgotten that they were slowly making their way East. He called me this past Thursday and asked if I had bought my tickets. No. So, on Friday night I came home from work and did so. They were almost sold out. I got ours just in the nick of time. Yay!

    Other than that, waiting for the big storm that is due here late this afternoon. Denny is taking his dad to the lung specialist tomorrow. They called him to see if he could come in tomorrow vs Thursday - I hope this is just because the doctor needed to reschedule and wanted to go on and get his stitches out earlier than later. Fingers crossed.

    I think I will lie down on the couch and read a bit and maybe take a tiny nap. Although, I am not a good nap taker. Boo!

    This is what we have to deal with....Den is taking his dad to the doctor tomorrow. His dad just called and said...don't tell your brother and sister. :bang: Denny said..Too late.

    They've already made a pact that what One knows, the others know.
