Good morning
Have a fun trip Kare. Yes My MIL was quite upset with us getting a non American car the first Beetle Pinky got. She was a Cadillac lady til the end. We have been Buick happy for quite a number of years but our car was made in Korea so go figure. LOL
Iz...I can definitely sympathize with you about pain being debilitating. I am glad you are being smart and taking it easy. More stress causes more deteriorating. to the knee. I do know that.
Piggles....You never told me if you found out about the casino tokens on the Norweign .....I have a bag full if they are good for you to use.
Not much on our schedule today. Library for 5 books for Pinky....mine will come in next week. Now it is a "small" trip to go as ours is still being redone. Whoo hoo road trip NOT.....LOL
Be here and checking in.
Hope weekend plans are fun and good for all

I loved my Buick Enclave , best car.
Wanted to wait for the 2018 to come out but they're talking November and Terry was chomping to get something ordered sooooo...

I didn't like the Enclave model after mine, it became mini van looking but 2018 looks more SUV and nice. Oh well!!

Enjoy your library outing

Hot and humid here today.

Om isn't working at HD tonight so we are going to grill burgers for dinner. Too hot to sit on the deck though.

For some reason I thought Kare drove a Lexus before the caddy?? American cars built in Korea and Japanese cars built in Indiana. crazy! I have owned only 3 vehicles and they were all US brands pretty sure they were built in the US. My first car was a Mercury, then I had a Ford and now I have a Dodge. Before I bought the Dodge I thought about a Toyota, but it cost $5K more and had less features so I got the Dodge.

My parents have owned all kinds. For awhile my Mom drove Volvos now she drives Lexuses, Lexi? My Dad drove Renaults for a long time but his last couple have been Chevys.

I went down and got some pizza. They make yummy pizza here

Just the usual chores and errands this weekend and Dad arriving tomorrow. I'll be around.

Lol yes Lexi!

No - last 2 have been Cadillacs before that Buick
We were between Lexus 460 this time and the Highlander as our friends own both dealerships so we had each for the day to try out but the space in the Highlander was better for Terry and actually I liked the vehicle better too surprisingly!!

Go figure they're made all over I guess .. leaving Olive Garden now oink

Good Morning

Hot, muggy ..you know....
Hitting 40C today (104)
Scared to say I'm over it , but..
I have to go out and water my poor flowers and shrubs in a few and hope my Indian friend isn't out walking!

I saw that they've changed up some ports with Celebrity up to December 21 , when are you going Om ? Celebrity?
Looks like St Martin is now Antigua - St Thomas now St Kitts ? At least on the few I looked at. Didn't go through the list of sailings. Poor San Juan is out of the picture , Key West, Dominica etc.. such a lot of clean up, feel awful for them all. Mexico too, breaks my heart.


Grand Turk - I saw this


Grand Turk Island, Turks & Caicos. Closed.
Visited mostly by Carnival cruise ships, Grand Turk suffered damage from Irma and has been closed this week to vessels. It had been expected to reopen soon but now is in the crosshair of Maria. Maria is expected to pass near the island on Friday. Carnival replaced its calls in Grand Turk this week with visits to Amber Cove in the Dominican Republic and Freeport in The Bahamas, and on Wednesday it dropped more calls at Grand Turk planned for the coming week.



Is dad arriving today Iz ?
Outback?


We're going to dinner with my sister and hubby tonight , deciding where. They're about 25-30 mins from here so maybe in between. Had fish n chips last night. That's 2 nights off tonight will make it 3 lol ..I need a chef. Need.


Okay be back later..

I have laundry going and will get cleaned up soon to go to the grocery store.

There is a Silhouette sailing just like ours in
December and they are going to St. Kitts instead of St. Maarten, so I'm guessing we will to. Not terrible but I was really hoping to get some of my favorite salmon seasoning and steak sauce. But the people of St. Maarten have much more serious worries than mine.

Dad said he'd get here around 5. We are going to grill pork chops tonight. Then if Dad wants to go to outback we can go tomorrow, because today would be way more busy there.

It's 83 already, going up to 90 I think. Still humid out there too.

I'm around. Iz

Hello all - since they changed the site, I've had difficulty getting to the boards with Chrome. Finally used my phone app and found a work around. Have to be in "incognito" mode to access the boards in Chrome. Weird.

Udi - you've been in our thoughts with these hurricanes and keeping our fingers and toes crossed that all remains okay for you.

We had Olive Garden for dinner last night, brought 1/2 of mine home for dinner tonight.

Sad news for us this past week, my SIL's boyfriend Richard passed on Monday. Lee and I went to San Diego Tuesday and Wednesday to help where we could. She's got no money and he left no will. So I have to search out an attorney that hopefully will assist us. She's got a LOT of CRAP/JUNK that he accumulated to get rid of. So we'll be helping with that. We'll also have to help her financially until we can get her situated within her budget. That might take a few months. What with clearing out all the junk, getting the estate (very small but there's some money and a vehicle) resolved, all of this having to take place over the holidays, our vacation and my conference.

The estate issue is that Richard has 4 surviving siblings have to be contacted. I did speak with one, and they paid for the mortuary services, but the bank account and vehicle assets have to be handled. It may not be pretty but the last conversation I had, they might be amenable to signing everything over to Cathy, but we'll see.

Busy we will be. I'm glad we're at a point financially to take this on but it's not what I want to do with our funds, it's what we have to do. Lee and I have not yet discussed if this will change our plans to purchase a travel trailer.

It's cooling off here. Mid 70's are the highs, in the 50's at night.

Good Morning

Okay, abundant EVERYTHING! Sun, heat,humidity,steam,frizz,shvitzing! Stupid hot.
There, I said it and in a few months I'll be saying the opposite

Yesterday, uneventful ..we went to dinner so that was a plus lol. Debating tonight's menu, it's really too hot to stand over an even hotter BBQ so not sure what to make

Very sorry to hear about your SIL's boyfriend Erri, it sounds like there are some hurdles to get over and she's fortunate to have you and Lee indeed. Estates can be a mess when they're not laid out correctly and in the absence of a will. ! I hope that it doesn't affect your plans for an RV , that would be so disappointing.

A lady that used to work at ECSC lost her husband this past winter sadly just after he retired..they always traveled all over the southern states in a huge RV in the winter for 6 months so she just bought herself a smaller one and still plans to do it alone yikes! She's made lots of friends along the way over the years so she'll be fine but very brave if you ask me. That wouldn't be my plan!

St Kitts is ok too Iz ..I think they're scrambling and ports will fluctuate with where they can get permission to stop at given there are many ships affected by these storms seeking alternate ports. Such a mess.

Our friend Jamie is in town off of the Disney Fantasy and he said Disney turned their last sailing into a cast member cruise once they debarked the passengers and floated around Cozumel. They had a blast lol.
Jamie's mum and dad ( they own the car dealerships ) just moved to Oakville after living way over the east side of the city for 40++ years so that's really nice. Beautiful beautiful home that they've completely renovated and it was pretty perfect before. They have a stunning pool and jacuzzi and outdoor kitchen with 2 BBQs an oven and a pizza oven. Look forward to that!!

So what else can I ramble on about ...ummmmm
Not much! So I'll hand the floor to someone else and come back and see who's got more excitement than me happening!!

I don't remember what I did in any island because they're all the same in my mind.

Except St Martin. Archie.

It's even hot inside, AC is chugging away struggling ..
Maybe it just me lol

Brunch is good Udi! Eat a lot, no cooking today ..

Have a nap later piggly. Don't be going outside in the heat, too much.

Might go see Shanan depending on traffic into the city with Prince Harry and the Invictus games happening

Later!
