    Well, we are on our way back to Florida after receiving a call from DD, who lives in the Orlando area, to tell us DSIL tested positive and she has symptoms. The plan is for us to take our two year old DGS to my DMIL'S. (She is in IN until Saturday.) We understand that Leo, DGS, has been exposed and could already be carrying it and we will get him tested, but we feel it's important to remove him from the house. This will also give his parents the ability to rest without having parental duties.


    All positive thoughts and prayers are appreciated.

    Sending prayers now,

    Blessed Sunday Daily-ites. Thank you Rich, Roy, and the Daily contributor ladies for food and drinks. 


    We have been to the Caribbean many times and Castries has great shopping. We're scheduled to be there the day after Christmas this year.


    God bless our fishermen and the fleets! 








    Yesterday we couldn't take the hammering and left for lunch, which turned into Happy Hour as our neighbors were in the restaurant and we gabbed for another hour or so. Got home at 4:30 and they were still jack hammering. So we hopped on Elvis and visited neighbors along the way. There was a little concert going on and we stopped and listened for a bit. Home at 6:30 and the crew was packing up thankfully. 


    Yesterday my niece adopted a dog from Frosted Faces, a place where senior dogs are adopted out. His name is Rocky and he's adorable. 


    Please take a moment tomorrow and say a prayer for my boyfriend and hubby. He's having MOHS surgery on his ear in the morning. 


    Have a great day. Cheers, prayers and blessings.


    Prayers  for  a  postive outcome.  Jim.

    Thank you for the Tuesday Daily, Rich.  We have a mantra in the Fire Service, "There are no stupid questions, only stupid mistakes".  A big salute to Good Neighbors and Public Lands.  I love the Mead quote but will pass on the chili.  I have been through Prince Christian sound just once on the Crystal Symphony before I started doing reports and don't think I have any photos.  My alternate menu suggestion is tea goodies as served on MS Oosterdam September 28, 2017:

    Just dropping in to thank you all for your prayers and good wishes for my friend battling cancer. They are working! Her oncologist told Cyn last week that the levels of the cancer causing “element” have dropped from 180 after surgery, down to 59 - after just three treatments!


    If the drop continues, she may only need 8 chemo treatments instead of 12 - meaning she might be half way through the course of treatments. They will do another test this Thursday. 

    We both shared some happy tears today.  Thank you all again for caring!

    That  is  great news. She  is  still  in  my  prayers  each  night.

    Thank you for today's daily Rich and care reports Roy.

    Interesting days and quote.

    I will pass on the food and drink.

    We called at Curacao on our very first Caribbean cruise on Crown Princess and it was very nice.

    It is 16.00pm 60°F and cloudy at home.

    We got back home 30 minutes ago after our long 315 miles drive back from Southampton.

    P&O new ship Iona was fabulous.

    I hope everyone has a nice day.






















    You both look fantastic you will live to a ripe old age together.

    On January 26, 2020, the Rotterdam returned to Caracao on the way back to San Diego.  This day, we walked from the ship, which was docked in the channel to Queen Emma bridge and into town.  It was Sunday, so many stores were closed, but it was a pleasant day to wander.


    The view across the channel from the bridge.

    Interesting street art



    We found this nice little open shaded area with cafes, bars, and decided it was time for a rest and a cool drink.




    We past the clock and bells just about the time they rang at noon.  Notice the clock needs a sightl adjustment.

    We just thought this was cute.



    Once back across the Queen Emma bridge, DH headed back to the ship, and I headed to the old fort that marked the entrance to the mega cruise dock.  The fort was a surprise, since it was basically a shell with mordern building housing the typical port shops.  Only when I turned around to leave, could you see the inside of the fort wall.





    A nice building and a side street on the walk back to the ship.



    The final picture from Curacao





    You take lovely photos.

    I’ve never seen one like this. It’s in Kruger, but the biggest thing is the accommodations. It’s called the train on the bridge, right in Kruger National Park. The rooms and dining area are carriages on a refurbished train set right on a long trestle over the Sabie River on a disused track. There are only 24 carriage cabins in total, so excursion space is finite. It’s not like HAL can just hire another 40 seater bus or two as demand increases.






    Wow great photos.
