  1. Thanks for the Daily Rich! Happy 4th of July! Karen
  2. Good morning, It's also National Postal Worker Day in the US. Happy Canada Day! Loved the quote. Thanks for doing this Rich. It's the bright spot in my morning. Karen
  3. Happy Canada Day! To celebrate I finally get a haircut!!!!! It's been too long. I'll don my Canada shirt and socks (courtesy of Northern Reflections) and enjoy my Canadian self. After being in the US for 43 years (married an American) I still am proudly Canadian! Karen
  4. I'm with you Sue from Canada! I look at the webcam and dream! Then I go over and look at Ketchikan, Homer and Skagway. Oh well - have cruises booked for 2021 and they include Alaska so we'll see what happens. Karen
  5. Good morning! Thanks for the Daily Rich! You're one of the "must reads" every morning and I appreciate all your hard work. Happy Anniversary Jacqui and Jose! Great news on your foot as well. We're having nice weather in the Pacific Northwest and today is making brownies to take to the doctor's office for DH's lung check. We should be in cruising mode - but that's another story. Karen
  6. Here's the link for the Snow cloud webcam. http://webcams.thesnowcloud.com Enjoy! Karen
  7. Love the pictures Ann! It's so sad to see Ogden Point and Seattle ports so deserted. Karen
  8. We were scheduled to sail to Hawaii on the Eurodam on April 15th from Seattle. It was canceled at the end of March. So far we have our FCC, excursions and on-board orders refunded. Only thing left is port taxes. The excursions came in two batches - May 9 and May 12, the FCC was May 7, and the on-board spending was May 14. We had Alaska booked on the Eurodam for late August/early September as well as Princess the week before. Nothing on either of those yet but we're doing FCC's on both and will rebook for 2021. Thinking positive thoughts! Karen
  9. Hi Jacqui, We are just not destined to cruise in 2020. You can take us off Ruby Princess Aug. 29th and Eurodam Sept. 5th. We have a deposit on a Panama Canal repositioning next April (HAL) but Princess has a 16 day Hawaii out of Seattle at the same time. Decisions, decisions. Hope you are healing well. DH turns 80 tomorrow (I'm 13 years younger) and we're having temps in the low 80s this weekend to be followed by rain during the week. Love the Pacific Northwest! Karen
  10. I've been reading this thread avidly but haven't posted before. I got this birthday card and it may cause several of you to smile (maybe not Roy though). My hair is usually short and it's gotten so long and curling at the ends. It's driving me nuts! Thanks for doing this Rich. It's one of my first reads of the day.

  11. I'm bummed. Both ships left and the camera was frozen or buffering or timing out. Not my day I guess. Hopefully it will clear up for the next ships.
  12. I'm with you OP! We had two cruises canceled - Eurodam to Hawaii (April 15) and Oosterdam to Alaska (August and they aren't bringing the ship to Seattle). I immediately had our TA move us over to the Eurodam Sept. 5th and we are preceding it with the Ruby Princess Aug. 29th. Now we keep fingers and toes crossed we get to go. Just having them to look forward to is worth so much. DH has health issues but everything is totally under control and cruising should be fine. His doctor and I talked before booking and we'll keep chatting. Be excited - I am - and it beats what we have now! In Washington our state parks are reopening next week - it's a start! Karen
  13. We're on the Eurodam Sept. 5th and have Glacier Bay on the schedule. It is closed right now but has a projected opening of July 1st. We've done both Hubbard and Glacier Bay on past cruises and they are both wonderful to see!
