  1. Good to hear you're home and that you have a diagnosis and are being treated. Take it easy!
  2. Good afternoon. Thanks for the Daily. Good days. Red Pandas are cute. I love cheeseburgers. I will celebrate Oktoberfest. We have several German restaurants here. I have been to Germany several times but not during Oktoberfest. The original Oktoberfest did start in October to celebrate the marriage of the crown prince of Bavaria (1810), but now runs from mid-September until the first Sunday in October. Funny Carlin quote. I like the meal (but too carby), drink and wine. I still have my hurricane glass from NOLA. I have been to today's port, on my Panama Canal cruise on the NCL Bliss. It's another warm and muggy day here. I did manage to get the lawn mowed this morning before it got too hot. The St. Patrick's Day parade was downtown today, postponed from March due to Covid. It's usually one of the largest in the country. @HAL4NOW Bon Voyage! @mamaofami So nice that this rehab facility is so much nicer. Early Happy Anniversary! @ger_77 Wow on frost already. I'm glad you had a nice day yesterday. @grapau27 Thanks for the pictures on the ship of you and your lovely wife. It looks so roomy with less passengers. @rafinmd Thanks for taking us along. Enjoy the event this afternoon. @smitty34877 I hope things start being less hard. @dfish Safe trip home! @bennybear Yikes on the iguana stew! 🤢 Rainbow as we were approaching Willemstad The color of the water was stunning Pastel color of buildings, seen from a boat as we went to the Aquarium Some pictures from the Aquarium Beach resort Old fortress wall NCL Bliss and Mein Schiff2 in port Gorgeous sunset. Ship patrolling between Curacao and Venezuela The sun was down but there was this great lightshow.
  3. Prayers that all goes well. Take care.
  4. Good news that you are home now. Rest and take care of yourself.
  5. It looks like you two are having a grand time!
  6. Good afternoon. Thanks for the Daily. Good days. I salute good citizens and the Constitution. Mmmm, apple dumplings. Interesting quote. I'll pass on the fish meal and drink, but the wine sound good. I have been to San Diego on a land trip. Lots of talk about shortages and supply chain issues due to the pandemic. Our state run liquor stores are now starting to ration! 😲 Fortunately it's a ration of 2 bottles of certain champagnes, cognac, tequila, whiskey. So I'm safe. Also a local news reporter developed an issue and was kept in the ER for 3 days due to lack of beds at one of our big hospitals (the one I use). Scary! @rafinmd Enjoy the reunion. @St. Louis Sal Sorry to hear about your friend's injury. @aliaschief Wow, that's a lot of rain. Is there flooding? @StLouisCruisers I can empathize. I set my alarm in away mode at night, as there are no motion detectors upstairs. It is set up to beep if the phone line goes out, and it seems to happen occasionally. The trouble light will be on as well. It does wake you up quickly when it happens during the night. @Cruising-along Glad the tests were ok. It's getting close to your departure; exciting! @dfish I'm glad you're enjoying the cruise! @Horizon chaser 1957 I'm jealous of the Safari excursion. That's a bucket list item for me. Prayers for the care list and cheers for the celebration list. Stay safe and wear your mask.
  7. Allegheny County's population is about 1.2 million people.
  8. Good afternoon. Thanks for the Daily. I salute the American Legion. I've collected a few rocks in my travels. Step families are great; lots of blended families these days. Love the quote. I'll pass on the meal (fish), drink and wine today. I'll take Roy's meal instead. I have been to Australia, but not Cairns. Thanks for the pictures. After rain most of yesterday, it's nice here today. Sadly our Covid numbers keep going up; 574 new cases in the county in the last 24 hours. There may be a mask mandate coming soon. @rafinmd Safe travels. Enjoy the reunion. @mamaofami Hoping Sam is released today. Good luck with the podiatry issue. @cat shepard It sounds like the knee is coming along. One of my issues from steroids for the eye is muscle tone loss; it's hard to get up without using my arms. PT starting next week should help. Cool pictures! @kazu Good news about your BF's DH. And I hope Jose is feeling better today. @St. Louis Sal Sorry to hear of DH's fall; thankfully nothing broken. @lcand1923 Safe travels and enjoy the cruise! @VMax1700 Praying your DW's side effects from the medication are gone soon. And you have your upcoming cruise to look forward to. @atexsix Prayers for a swift recovery. Prayers for the care list and cheers for the celebration list. Stay safe and wear your mask.
  9. Wishing you a speedy recovery, Bruno.
  10. @irishjim I'm glad the surgery went well. Sorry to hear about the ear; but maybe they can do some reconstructive surgery down the road. @Seasick Sailor Now that they know the bug, the right antibiotic should take care of it.
  11. Good evening. Thanks for the Daily. Blessings to those observing Yom Kippur. I've only made knitted hats, and don't have a felt hat. Good quote. I like the meal (arroz con pollo), drink and wine. I haven't been to today's port. Thanks for the pictures. I'm really late today. It's rainy here and I've been reading. Finally reading The Path between the Seas, which I had meant to read before my last cruise in 2019 which was a transit of the Panama Canal from LA to NYC. @rafinmd I hope you enjoy the reunion. Stay safe and safe travels. @lindaler Great that you're enjoying your visit with family. @ger_77, @sailingdutchy, @Vict0riann Sorry to hear about the cruise cancellations. Prayers for the care list and cheers for the celebration list. Stay safe and wear your mask. 400+ new cases here in 24 hours. About 20% of cases are breakthrough, but fortunately almost no deaths in that group. Hospital ER's having long wait times. Some due to a shortage of workers. Let's hope this settles down.
  12. Good afternoon. Thanks for the Daily. Well, sort of not my days. I barely eat crab, and then only crab cakes. I don't like cream filled donuts. I do try to be creative. The meal sounds interesting. I'll pass on the drink and wine. I haven't been to today's port. Thanks for the pictures. It's warm and humid here today. My stomach feels better, but now the back is acting up. I took some ibuprofen this morning and it's feeling better. I don't start PT for another 9 days. @irishjim Praying your surgery goes well and is less extensive. @kplady Good to hear from you. I'm glad recovery has begun. @grapau27 The food looks wonderful, as usual. @mamaofami I hope Sam comes home soon. And great that your good aide is back! I'm sure it was nice to get out. @Seasick Sailor Sorry to hear you don't feel so well today. Feel better soon! @smitty34877 Camilla is adorable! Prayers for the care list and cheers for the celebration list. Stay safe and wear your mask.
  13. Good afternoon. Thanks for the Daily. Interesting days. I defy superstition except in relation to sports fandom. If they win, wear the same shirt next time, lol. Fortune cookies are meh. I love peanut butter, but not peanuts (unless in M&M's). Funny quote. The meal sounds good, as well as the drink and wine. I'm just having a baked potato I think, as my stomach is a bit upset. I haven't been to today's destination. Thanks for the pictures. I can't open videos that are .mov. I don't think my browser (Chrome) likes those. It's warmer and getting more humid. Skies are milky and per the weather people it's from the western fires. My night blooming cactus' flower stalk is growing. It may open in about a week. @kplady Prayers for your surgery today. @irishjim Prayers for your surgery tomorrow. @mamaofami So sorry to hear that the delay in getting Sam's CT and the subsequent delay in starting the Warfarin. I hope the stress lessens for you all. @Seasick Sailor I'm glad you're feeling good today. Prayers for the care list and cheers for the celebration list. Stay safe and wear your mask. Sadly our 72 hour county new case count is 1043!
  14. Good afternoon. Thanks for the Daily. Good days. I just had a banana chocolate protein shake for lunch. Sadly I never knew any grandparents. I never had a pet, but know how important they have been to so many. Great quote. I like the meal and drink. I'll pass on the white wine. I haven't been to today's destination. I managed to get the lawn mowed this morning, before it got too hot. Temps are higher starting today. My BFF and I went to a little Thai restaurant last evening. We were able to sit outside. I had a very tasty chicken pad Thai. @JAM37 Great that DH is continuing to improve. @mamaofami Sorry it's taking so long to hear from Sam's doctors. @grapau27 That lunch looks tasty! @Seasick Sailor I'm glad you're feeling better today. @lindaler Safe travels! @kplady I hope you have a successful surgery and uncomplicated recovery. Prayers for the care list and cheers for the celebration list. Stay safe and wear your mask if needed.
  15. Good afternoon. Thanks for the Daily. We will never forget 9/11. I try to always make the bed. Often no news is good news. Interesting quote. I like the meal, pass on the drink and I'll take the wine. Going out to eat with BFF, trying to stay safe. I have been to Greece, but not Rhodes. Thanks for the pictures. Not doing too much today. I watched some of the 9/11 Remembrance programs, and it still brings tears. I was at work and at first thought it must be a little Piper Cub into the WTC, then found out the sad truth. I had friends call from England when they heard about a plane nearing Pittsburgh. A good high school friend who worked at the Pentagon had decided to work from home that day. My BFF was in Mexico for work, and stuck there until planes could fly again into the US. @rafinmd Thank you for the 9/11 remembrances. @StLouisCruisers I'm glad your test was ok, but it's probably frustrating not finding a cause for your cough. Hoping the new spray continues to work. @dfish Bon Voyage. Excellent news about Donna's surgery. @kb4683 Good news on the negative test! @Lady Hudson Hoping your BIL's pain eases soon. @HAL Sailer What wonderful recollections of kindness! Prayers for the care list and cheers for the celebration list. Me at the makeshift Flight 93 Memorial in Shanksville, in 2007.
  16. Nice car! I am a big Maigret fan and have many of the books by Simonen.
  17. Good morning. Thanks for the Daily. Interesting days. I have 2 sewing machines. My mother's that is in a cabinet and a portable one. I only can do basic stuff, but my mother was excellent and made great suits and other clothes. It's great to swap ideas. I remember the old TV dinners; I'll occasionally have a newer version if not up to cooking. Funny quote. I do like the shrimp dish (about the only seafood I'll eat). I'll pass on the gimlet and take the wine. I have been to Australia, but not today's port. The weather is nice today, after rain off and on yesterday. I'll need to get the lawn mowed soon. @mamaofami I'm glad Sam is ok, and that you checked with his doctors. I went once for foot pain and they missed a stress fracture. Luckily I got in with an Orthopedic doctor who found it. @kazu Thanks for taking on the recipe duties! @StLouisCruisers I hope your test goes well and you get an answer. @JAM37 It sounds like it will take a while for your DH to get his stamina back. Hoping the cough goes away soon. @rafinmd Good luck with the test. @Horizon chaser 1957 What a thoughtful gift! Prayers for the care list and cheers for the celebration list. Stay safe and wear your mask if needed.
  18. Good afternoon. Thanks for the Daily. Good days. I like teddy bears and still have one from childhood. I used to do Sodoku on long plane rides; I think I've forgotten how to do it. I also like crossword puzzles. Wonderful weidos, hmmm. Funny quote. I'll pass on the carby meal. I like the drink and wine. I have been to Alaska, but not Whittier. Thanks for the pictures. I'm quite late today. I had to take my car for it's yearly inspection/emissions. There are no close Acura dealerships, so I had to drive a ways. But now my car has new stickers, and is shiny and clean. There was a brief rain shower on the way home, but it's sunny now. I waited at the dealership and only one other person had on a mask. I wore mine the entire time, not even having complimentary coffee or snacks. @dfish Safe travels and have a great cruise! @JAM37 Glad to hear your DH is less winded, and that your back feels better. Congrats on the newly booked cruise. @cat shepard Good going on the PT! @smitty34877 Good news that Tana seems to be doing somewhat better. Hope it continues! @kb4683 Sorry to hear of your possible exposure. Prayers for a negative test! Great pictures. @VMax1700 I hope your wife gets good reports on her tests. I'm familiar with the monthly pills (I took Boniva for osteopenia and tolerated it well), and know of the infusion, but don't have experience with that. I do think the infusion side effects only last a short while after it, not long term. But she should talk with her doctors. Prayers for the care list and cheers for the celebration list. Stay safe and wear your mask. We had 334 new cases in the last 24 hours in my county (1.2M people). And parents are protesting the school mask mandate, saying it should be their choice; smh.
  19. Yes. Available in drugstores and on Amazon.
  20. @durangoscots Excellent news on the pathology report!
  21. I make a bread called Hutzelbrot at Christmas, which is a German Christmas bread. Lots of chopped dried fruits and nuts. It's quite involved, and a lot of work, but tastes wonderful.
  22. Good afternoon. Thanks for the Daily. Interesting days. Literacy is important. &&&. And I like date nut bread with a cup of coffee. Wise quote. I like Jaeger snitzel. Since my BFF is of German heritage, and we've visited family there several times, I've learned to make many German meals over the years. Jaeger means hunter in German and Jaeger snitzel has a mushroom gravy on it. I'll pass on the drink and wine (give me a Chilean red). I haven't been to today's port. Thanks for the pictures. I spent the morning trying to find out if I needed prior authorization for physical therapy. My specialist ordered it after my MRI showed what it did and due to my back/hip issues, trouble going up stairs, and lower extremity tingling. It's a rainy day here today, and is cooler. @rafinmd You do a great job with the lists, with so much going on with us all. @JAM37 Great to hear that DH continues to improve. @dfish Congrats on the negative test! @VMax1700 It will be interesting to see what you think of the electric car. @Seasick Sailor Sorry to hear your friend's DD's surgery got postponed. It scares me that there might not be room in hospitals for people with other conditions like heart disease, strokes, etc. @Quartzsite Cruiser Great pictures! @Lady Hudson Prayers for your BIL. Prayers for the care list and cheers for the celebration list. Stay safe everyone. We had 450 new cases in the last 24 hours in my county!
  23. Good afternoon. Thanks for the Daily. Interesting days. I do like beer with certain meals. Neither rain nor snow here, but mail is sometimes slow. A salute to Grandma Moses. The quote is so true. The meal sounds interesting, maybe with some chicken added, lol. I'll pass on the drink, but the wine sounds good. I haven't been to Puget Sound. Thanks for the pictures. On the gardening front, one of my night blooming cereus cacti has a flower bud! I have 2 plants, and neither had a bud last year. These are in pots, and go outside in May and come back inside before the first frost. I will post pictures when it's further along. @KirkNC Good luck with the final move. @JAM37 I'm glad to hear DH is feeling better today. @durangoscots So good to hear that things are coming along slowly. @Norseh2o Wow, 101-1/2! Early happy birthday to your DM. @VMax1700 Good to see you back on the Daily! @Vict0riann I'm glad DS's test was negative. When I got tested last December, they also tested for flu and RSV at the same time (this was an ER done test). Prayers for the care list and cheers for the celebration list. Stay safe and wear your mask if needed. Having a beer at the Hofbrauhaus in Munich.
  24. Good afternoon. Thanks for the Daily. Good days. Happy Labor Day! I do need to fight procrastination on a few chores that need to be done. And I'll read a book too. Good quote. I'll pass on the meal with cockles (not a shellfish or fish person), drink and wine. I'll take Roy's meal. I have been to Rome, although not on a ship, and not to Civitavecchia. Thanks for the pictures. It's a nice day here, after rain off and on yesterday. Sunny, mid-70's, low humidity. I had opened a window last night and was cold when I woke up. I have no special plans for today. Happy Rosh Hashanah to those who celebrate. @StLouisCruisers Happy Anniversary! Beautiful picture of your wedding day. @dfish Sorry to hear your friend Donna won't be able to take the cruise, but it sounds like it's for the best. @JAM37 It's good that DH is getting better sleep. Unfortunate that he's still that short of breath. @durangoscots Hugs. It sounds like it's a bit tough for you right now; good for you for following all your care instructions. Prayers for the care list and cheers for the celebration list. Stay safe everyone and wear your mask if needed. We had 912 new Covid cases in our county over the past 72 hours - yikes!
