Default old friends

Oh how I hope everyone finds this thread after we were "cut off" from each other so quickly. It will be good to hear how everyone is and hopefully share stories and pictures. I for one came home with "the cold" and still have it. So does Diana. Although both my sons have put live Christmas trees in their homes and that always causes my head to have problems so don't know where I stand with it all. Just know Dec will be stuffy for me. But I am so looking forward to Christmas with a 5 3/4 year old, his words, and a 16 month old.

I made many new friends on the cruise and hope to hear from them that they are all doing fine.
Take care, Marla

I have been working on my online cruise journal today that gets mailed to me as a book once I get it done. I noticed on the Panraven Story Viewer site that Andi and Will (audio2of5) have gotten their's done already & It turned out really well! For a peak at their's ~
http://www.panraven.com/storyviewer/?storyId=224788

Anyone else have their's done as well? It is time consuming.

I still have not completed our SPO Cruise Blog ~
it is a work in progress ~ I keep adding stuff as it comes to me.
http://sapphireprincessodyssey.blogspot.com/
and have stopped on that to finish the above journal cause it has to be done within 2 months and time especially now around Christmas just flies by!

I am in full swing at work -
Got the Christmas trees up and all the decorations up as well. Christmas shopping is coming right along. My clients 61st wedding anniversary is 1/6/12 - so they have planned a late Christmas, wedding anniversary & all round thank you dinner. We will have 7 guests plus my clients = 9 at the dining room table. I am making most of the Lamb dinner (Patting myself on the back - I am a pretty good chef!) and 2 guest's are bringing - Sarma : Armenian Stuffed Grape Leaves ~ which goes great with Lamb ~ Yummy! ~ and a dessert of their choice.

How are everyone else's Christmas and or Holiday shaping up?

Thanks Grace for sharing Andi and Wil's travel album. I am glad to get to share my next cruise with them in April.

Thank you also to Grace for pushing to get us back together. It feels like a chance to really have closure for our cruise. Marla

Hi There!

For those who are interested.............

Here is a link to my pics from Bora Bora and Moorea. Going through all these photos is a long and painstaking process. I took way too many pics

Coming home to special birthdays and the holidays was a challenge for us. I am sure it was for most of you too!!!!!!!

I will post again when I complete another gallery!

http://www.pbase.com/dchip/moorea

Cheers, Denise

Hi all,

Just got Grace's email about this thread. I had gotten so disgusted with all the other threads about our cruise that I unsubscribed to them all. Hence, I didn't know that it was pulled.

The Panraven book is pretty cool, though we haven't actually received the hard copy yet. Wil agonized over what pictures to include and I think he even resorted to some old Hawaii pictures from a few years ago. I told him not to fret so much about it cause he and I were the only ones who would even want to look at it .

All of our pictures are on Webshots http://community.webshots.com/user/andio2of5

Driving down, we stayed overnight in Santa Barbara at the Rosa Villa Inn.....a quaint, little Tuscan like place just a half block from the beach. I would definitely stay there again. After the cruise, we spent Sat night in San Louis Obispo at the Apple Farm Inn...I love that place.....anything to prolong our vacation and avoid reality.

Wasn't it awful to get home and have Thanksgiving staring us in the face??? I had to do last minute shopping for a turkey at Costco and Trader Joe's........awful crowds!!!! And then, along comes Christmas...I am sooo not ready for it. Finally got the tree up and decorated....too bad there's going to be a big empty space underneith it cause I am not up to fighting the crowds for presents.......$$$$$ gifts this year for our three young men.

Denise...I am going to go look at your pictures right now...I know they are beautiful.

Wil and Mike have decided that they want to relive Tahiti so have gotten all three versions of "Mutiny on the Bounty"....hope they have fun watching them cause Wanda and I aren't interested

Andi

Andi I am so glad to hear you had the same reaction I did to getting home and all the crowds and madness of shopping. I went on line and did my shopping and most things I have already received.

I also ordered a book from Kodak Gallery that I put together of our trip. It turned out pretty good and had another one made for Diana but it isn't anywhere as nice as yours. That must have been offered by the photo dept on the ship. It is really nice.

As for Denise's photos....FANTASTIC... You have a great camera to get those wonderful pictures.

I miss the ship, the islands, the friends old and new. It seems like we walked off the ship and that was it. I was on such a high and some of the comments just tainted the memories a bit but now a few more weeks later and I still would do the trip over and over again if I could.

I would love to hear from Gloria and Darrell and know that they are ok. Darrell I miss you saying such sweet things to me over and over again!!! hugs to everyone, Marla

Hello Andi, Marla and all,

Thanks so much for coming over and chatting with us. I miss everyone from the cruise. I had a wonderful time in spite of everything and would do the cruise again in a heartbeat. If you know of anyone from the cruise that does not already know about this thread - please tell them.

Andi, I went over and looked at your pictures at Webshots and they are great -
I am a member of webshots also so I invited you to be my member friend.
If it is ok with you I would like to copy off a few of your pictures and put them on the blog!

And DEnise = your pictures are wonderful too - I am waiting patiently to see the rest once you get them up.

Did you all see Peg's pics at Wagonmaster's site?
http://www.zangzing.com/wagonmaster/...seas-adventure

And of course my Sapphire Princess Odyssey blog has a lot of mine plus others pictures there too ~
http://sapphireprincessodyssey.blogspot.com/

However - Whatever - Enjoy all!

Hello girls!

Wow Andi, you've got cruises!

My friend keeps sending me great deals, but I can't book anything until I know the results of some testing I'll have done after the first of the year.

I miss our vacation, lol.

I was totally mellow for a few days after we got back, but it hasn't taken long to feel like we never left.

I have been viewing all your pictures--they are wonderful. I'm still not through sorting through mine and I haven't been very motivated to do it. Perhaps 1000 pictures was a bit munch, lol.

Hi y'all! So glad to see this thread started. I will post more later, but wanted to let y'all know that on the way home Darrell got pneumonia. He was having such problems breathing and so weak,I took him directly to our hospital before going home. He spent 2 days there and got a little better, but last 2 days he is feeling puny again. He has a doc appt. tomorrow afternoon and hopefully they can get this totally cleared up.

We went to son's lakehouse for Thanksgiving and had a good time there. I also got "the cold" and had laryngitis (?). Darrell said it was nice... I am fine now and going to volunteer at hospital tomorrow morning.

Everyone's pics are so good...I am still working on mine. Marla, I will get that one to you soon.

Best wishes and love to all,
