We have two gorgeous labs- a very pretty black girl, and a big handsome brown boy. Not service dogs but I think The boy dog could have been; the girl, she has her own agenda! So I came here wondering what you were all talking about and have been hanging around ever since - no not like a bad smell!!
"Grand Dowager Duchess" that's me!!!!! I'm kind of like your female......I have my own agenda!!!!!

Signing off now----not sure I will be back till after vacation. If DH has a computer with him and it works----I will drop in. Safe travel.

Trudy, I'm sure I didn't get to catch you before you left. I wish you a wonderful and safe journey. Have a super cruise with Cindy and her men. Give her a big hug from me. I wish I could be with both of you to enjoy the open sea together.

Have fun!

Awww Roz, Don't torture yourself. You still have all those memories, you don't need to have them written down to remember them. They are part of you and you will never forget them. You can write down all the new memories. Now that you are older, you might need them on paper to remember them.
Thanks Cindy, I know you're right. And, boy, if I don't write things down when I think of it, I can totally forget what was on my mind a minute ago.

It's so much fun to read about the past, what happened years ago, where we were and who was in our lives. Boy, talk about memories; with 5 brothers and sisters and 3 children, life is full of wonderous and momentous adventures.

Now that I have these two CCI dogs in my life the adventures are never ending and really fun!

You're almost on that ship. Stay away from your son and tell him to stay hydrated and if he makes you sick.......I'll kill him for you!!!!! I can't stand when we plan for a great vacation and something goes wrong with our bodies. It's time for that plastic bubble!!!!!

I had a late lunch with my sis and family so I didn't get to see Trudy's sailaway.

My hair appointments are in the morning so I should be able to watch your sailaway.

Roz, you have mail.

I hope you can handle it. You click on the link and the camera comes up. In the left hand corner of the screen there are arrows and you can switch to another view. Scroll down to bottom of page and you can see the ships, they will appear as blue diamonds. Run cursor over them to see what ship it is. You better practice.

I did it!!!! And, I have posted some pictures when I patiently pay attention to what I'm doing. I'm just always going in 10 directions [non of which I'm very good at!] Ask me to debate and write about any subject no problem.....than ask me to do it in excel or send a picture or text message and suddenly I become illiterate!!!!

Oh! Well! You don't want me to become to good at any one thing or it's all I'll do!!!!!!

I don't want to bore you!!!!!

Yes, I had so much fun. I wouldn't let anyone interrupt me, at work so I could watch the people walking on the ship and the little, tiny boats floating by and then I watched workers moving something on a pier and then I tried to follow someone walking from the middle of a ship to the front.......I think I was watching the cam, if not I was on some kind of secret mission and the only thing I couldn't do was watch anyone through any windows.

Oh! And making fun of me for the past 5 years is okay in your book? Me asking if you've done any ironing is "snotty!" Oh! Wait! Ironing is a lousy job......Sorry! Sis! Far be it for me to expect you to do anything beneath you!!!!!! Why don't you see if you can have your laundry shipped to CA, I'll be happy to beat it on a rock and stand over a hot steam press, in a sweat shop for hours on end to keep you happy!!!!!!
