Good evening anyone,

Larry & I are sitting in the DL. Larry's watching racing and I am just relaxing.

Is anyone else around?

Good evening all,

Your last Saturday in the virtual DL for a couple of weeks!!! So happy for you all - we will be there in spirit. You could keep an empty chair as a symbol for all of us spirits. We know you will have a wonderful time for all of us.

Sitting in our own DL with the dogs carefully watching Mike eat cheese, crackers and chicken bites. I already shared my cheese with them. The martini glasses are chilling. Big Bang Theory reruns are on.

So are you all packed?

Carol,

If you are reading, hope you're doing good and are out of the hospital. It will get better every day, I promise

Take care,

Yes we will leave a chair for our missing NUTS.

How are you doing? Larry is mostly packed, I haven't pack very much yet because Scott is home and I got his stuff washed and pack again for him to leave on Tuesday to Saskatoon and then I will get my bag packed.

We are going to have pork chops and some broccoli and carrots for dinner when I get around to make it. Looking forward to not having to make the decision of what to eat and cook.

We are doing good. Ran errands today and Mike had a big lunch, so the cheese & chicken is his dinner. I still can't eat much. Pork chops sound wonderful. Nice to have Scott home, I am sure. When do you fly out to Hawaii?

I am so impressed that you all are climbing Diamond Head. Maybe next NutZ reunion we will be able to do that!

We are flying on Thursday. I'm not sure if we are going to get to the top of Diamond Head before sunrise but we'll send Paula and Larry ahead to take photos.

So only 5 more sleeps! Nice. When does the ship sail? Are you staying at the same hotel you did last time?

We board on Saturday and we sail away Sunday night at 10:00 I think. We are staying at the Courtyard Marriott this time, Dee & Dennis are at the same hotel. It is just up the road from where we were last time. Dee & Dennis fly from Toronto to Vancouver and we are on the same flight from Vancouver to Hawaii, so we will share a transfer to the hotel. This time Dee & Dennis are in first class and we are at the back of the bus, last time we were the ones in first class and Deannie & Rick were at the back of the bus.

On Saturday we will board and then there is a Spam Jam event going on that night that Paula and Larry want to go to. Did you know that they have Spam on the McDonald's menu for breakfast, I have to get a photo of that, Spam & Eggs.

Nice that you can all travel together.

Remember, the back of the bus gets to Hawaii the same time as the front. Most important thing is that you will be in Hawaii with no dishes, no dinner decisions and you don't have to make a bed or wash towels for 2 weeks!!! Plus you have a real DL with someone else serving

Would love to see that! I had spam sushi in Kauai when we were there in December and loved it. Will love hearing all about Spam Jam. Mike would be standing in the back with you

Hiya,

Any grocery store will have it - mostly small mom & pop places. Yum!!! Has all the right flavors mixed and is usually wrapped in a strip of noori (seaweed). I even brought some home to share with my mom since she was raised in Oahu.

Yes we did. We did the hot rock thing and felt like I was cooking at home. Probably other alternatives there that I missed that would have been better. Will have to revisit. You know us, we are up for whatever the group is doing

We had lunch at Izumi's and they do not have the hot rock thing for lunch but we wanted to try it. What we had we liked. I'm ok as long as it is cooked.

Mike is the same way. Funny, Rick and I do sushi, Mike and JoAnn only do cooked. You would have a lot of company

How are the pork chops coming? Mine are horrible. Jason told people that they were similar to hockey pucks and was right
