Yes, we did have crab cakes in Baltimore and D.C. Love them! The weather was sooo perfect~in the upper 70's all week, cool evenings and mornings. We definitely lucked out on the weather. One bad storm went thru on Tuesday, but we were in a museum at the time. Also, on Tuesday afternoon, we were texted the picture of a brand new baby in our family, my cousin Kathy~(a fellow PBS member) had her second grandson! That was pretty cool! We will always remember where we were when he was born!

...you will love the new phone! A colleague has one and I was able to touch and carry the newest model! It is so much thinner and lighter. However, I know the screen size is larger but I was more blown away by the dimensions and weight!

Happy Anniversay Janice and Patrick.

Mary, congrats on the newest addition.

Janice, I heard the same info concerning AA. The only problem, 75% of all flights out of DFW are AA. That doesn't leave much room for something else. I was hoping they would have something settled by now but it just keeps getting worst.

Dave

Thanks, Janice and Happy Anniversary to you and Patrick!

I am looking forward to this cruise and our first time in a Grand Suite! And you and Patrick right next door!!

I know that some of our men are wearing the "Pink" for formal nite....how many of our ladies are wearing the boa? If anyone needs one, I do have extras, would be happy to bring them for you. Or ship them to you before the cruise.

Golfing this afternoon, have a nice day everyone!

Thanks Dave.

After ATA pulled out of Midway airport, we started flying AA, which meant driving to O'Hare. When they started charging a fee for bags, we switched to Southwest out of Midway and have been happy with them so far. I don't know if Southwest flies from an airport near you, sounds like they don't.

Dave, I know that DFW is dominated by AA since it's their major hub. We are fortunate that we can fly out of three major airports within a 30 mile radius: SJC, SFO and OAK. I cannot believe the difference in price at times; pretty significant.

Let's hope that AA can successfully merge or co-share with someone. Thanks for the anniversary wishes.

Mary, hope you had fun golfing! I cannot believe that it was our 13th anniversary...sometimes feels like a lot longer. Actually it is since we met in December 1996 and became a couple in February 1997.

...so looking forward to our first GS too and our great neighbors!

Linda, it is nice to have the option to drive rather than fly. Often times when you factor in the waiting at the airport time, you are already home or at your destination.

FYI, I am really not able to arrive in advance for the cruise so you are welcome to join some of us post-cruise too!

That's how I feel about going from here to Los Angeles - takes much much longer to prep and actually fly over there -

Maybe next time, we will try to drive to Seattle - lots of nice stops along the way - I want to go back to Astoria too!

I remember that our 49ers were playing against the SeaHawks that weekend - and we came across a gang of niner fans wearing the jerseys, colors, etc... and they were crossing the street and Narce and I started yelling with them... Go Niners Go!!! it was fun - I think our guys lost that game! it was very close tho' -

Thanks for the invite to join you'all post cruise, you never know how much an area has to offer, there are lots of ports I'd go back to in a heartbeat to see more. This is the first time we have driven to a port and been retired so we do have options. Once my daughters wedding is over I will do more hardcore planning.

Also happy anniversary!!!! ENJOY !!!!!

Carol, I love the area but I could never live there...too many days of no SUN! I would need one of those special lights to avoid major depression.

One of my favorite stores at Christmas time is in Woodinville at a store called Molbak's! I love their themed trees and the rooms are filled with many different decorated trees...I haven't seen anything comparable in our area.

...so looking forward to our first GS too and our great neighbors!
Yes, it was nice, some good shots, some not so good....putted pretty well tho.

I know what you mean, it has been 17 for us, but seems longer...maybe cuz so many things have happened in the last 17 years....weddings, grandkids, losing three of our parents...happy and sad things. We also dated for four and a half years before we got married. But the years do go quickly..can't believe we are only 5 months away from this cruise...we were 17 months away when we booked it! I remember that day on Allure so well...we were so excited. Cruising with friends makes cruising the most fun!

Having friends for dinner tonite, making spaghetti, Italian Sausage, salad and Garlic Bread. Looking forward to one of the last get togethers we can have that we can sit outside for awhile in the evening...weather is starting to cool off late in the day.

Have a good day, everyone!!!

Good morning cruisers,

Mary, SW flies out of Love in downtown Dallas. It doesn't fly to Richmond, where we are going in a few weeks. Flying AA is so convenient because there are so many direct flights. I'm sure they will get their stuff together soon.

Hope everyone has a great day.

Dave

It's thanksgiving weekend but most of the family will arrive early that week, so we have thanksgiving dinner to do with lots of people I have never met and its my birthday, next day we head to the beach to begin all the activities. Wedding is on the beach followed by the reception in the garden area of th hotel. It's a real unusual location. Real surfer chic with southern charm.

We have something in common! A birthday in November...mine is on the 21st and we will be at the Grand Wailea on Maui. The wedding sounds so beautiful and the weather should be perfect too. Just think it is around the corner!

Have a fun weekend!
