Hi Janice,

We're still on the Hawaii cruise. An OS miraculously opened up and I snagged it as fast as my little fingers would let me. We're really looking forward to it. I hope this doesn't spoil us too much. But I'm sure we'll still enjoy a JS again in the furure.

We are still on the Hawaii cruise but an OS came open and I jumped on it as we just got a nice tax refund.

We are now in OS 1062.

Because the OS has a nice dining room table we can forgo formal nights and just order dinner in. After so many cruises we get tired of having to pack all that extra stuff.
Oh Nancy, now I wish I was on that cruise as I would love to have seen your cabin but I will have to settle for this cruise to see your OS, have a great cruise on the Radiance

Woo Hoo! Another Grand Suite in the mix! Lots of fun this cruise! Hob Nobbing will be fun! Congrats Dave and Bettie.

Saw the tornado video with the trailers being picked up...just speechless...so glad no fatalities..I am guessing that was too close for comfort for you, Dave!

We had a white bunny that was an Easter gift from my grandparents (for my brother); our rabbit lived to a ripe old age of 8...I settled on a Beatles album from my grandparents.

Last year we had a big "shock" at the extra amount we had to pay in taxes. So we had them take out a ton extra every month. And while I hate to give the feds a free loan at least we got some of it back.

Happy Day!

Nancy, there is an on-line calculator that helps to project that I need to use again. I hate paying Unclel Sam too much as he gets free interest which he doesn't pay back...there has to be a better method!

Enjoy the upcoming cruise! Aloha!
