  1. Our vaccination document shows two valid doses and last vaccine given . In Ontario . Nowhere does it show what the first shot was, could have been the same or something else
  2. @puppycanducruiseHave you read Robert Galbraith (JK Rowling)? SharonBolton? I like the Midsummer Murders series and I just started the books. The characters are far more detailed as are the story lines. The author is Caroline Graham. Deen
  3. @smitty34877 I love to read British detective books. Are you referring to books by Martin Edwards? I often have to ask a British friend to translate 😀 Deen
  4. @Overhead Fred, we have quite a few American cottagers on our lake who are asking the same question. I would be surprised if the border is open in July, August seems a possibility . As everyone knows though, it’s foolish to predict anything. Sorry this really isn’t helpful. Deen
  5. Our first cruise was the Baltic on the Rotterdam and our first port was Arhus. We walked everywhere and then took the bus to the park where the Queen has her summer residence. We met a lovely woman and her family. Her husband was the minister of the church the Queen attended when she was in residence. She invited us to her home for tea and said her sil would drive us back to the port. We were paranoid about being back at the ship on time so we declined. We still regret that decision.
  6. @Quartzite Cruiser, as others have said, your DH’s pictures are amazing. Please thank him and please post more. We are booked on the Auckland to Seattle cruise next March and it would be wonderful if there was an astronomer to speak and show us the stars.I can picture standing on deck and looking up in amazement. We live near an area that bills itself as “The Lilac Capital of Ontario”. I love lilacs but we are a few weeks away from them blooming here. This is the best thread on CC. Thank you all. Deen
  7. @ger-77 , thanks for giving me a reason for my bumping into walls and furniture 🥴 @kazu, most of our family leaves the black jellybeans so I sent them your cartoon. 🤣 Our second Easter not being able to celebrate with family but, unlike last year, we can celebrate vaccines and more and more people being vaccinated. We will soon have those family gatherings. Dinner here will be ham, scalloped potatoes, asparagus and lemon meringue pie. Shhh, don’t tell my dh about the pie, it’s a surprise. Have a wonderful day, whatever you are doing. Deen 😷🐰🐣🥂
  8. @highscar, I think the alerts are for abductions.
  9. We both received our first shots of AstraZeneca yesterday at a pharmacy in Kingston, 1.5. Hrs from our home. All went well and we are very grateful. Second shots booked for June 10th although might be sooner with increasing amounts of vaccines arriving. There was an Easter miracle this past week in our area. A 3yr old boy wandered off on Sunday in a heavily wooded area with lakes and streams and swampy areas. He was found alive and well on Wednesday. 🙏 Definitely not a dry eye in the house. Thank you for this thread and all who post and share their kindness. Deen
  10. We were at a restaurant in South Carolina with a group of friends, all Canadians. One of the men asked for pecan pie. The waitress patiently explained that “PECAN was something you put under your bed at night, PECON was in a pie”. 😁
  11. We have appointments for our first shots! So happy!! Canada has approved AstraZeneca for over 65. It’s 100km drive each way but so worth it. Road trip. 😀
  12. I think we were on the Ryndam when we were in Monte Carlo, no tenders required. We were standing at the railing as we were docking and pointing out which mega yacht was ours. One of the ship’s officers stopped and said his wasn’t there, it was one with two helicopter pads. 😁
  13. We have done one cruise to Alaska with our son and family and several friends. We enjoyed it all and had wonderful weather the entire time. The captain said it was the only time he had been in Ketchikan on a sunny day. No plans to return though as we have quite enough snow and ice for far too long right here. 🙄🙂
  14. On the first leg of our VOV cruise we missed several ports due to weather. Molde was a last minute stop. It is a beautiful city, called City of Roses. We walked around with another couple (Hi Barbara and Allan) and then went into a restaurant. My DH still says it was the most expensive beer and club sandwich he has ever had! 😁
