Hi gang

We’re home and exhausted.
I think the thing I dislike most about cruising ...is the getting up and out so early. We did walk off and it was a nightmare. Took us 30mins to get an elevator that would accommodate us and bags even splitting up ..and our time was 7:40 and we got off at 8:45. Stood in a hallway for over an hour ..only 2 immigration officers , grrrrr. Then the ap , also not fun.

I didn’t hear about the lady on Epic but then I didn’t hear much lately! I did hear that the lady that passed away on Freedom was 37 yrs old and died of alcohol poisoning. I don’t know why people have to get so blitzed on cruises.. just sad.

I did take the black lozenge and I found it really good, and rather licorice tasting. The eucalyptus oil was amazing that I gargled with! I remember my Mum used to use eucalyptus oil when she was sick with a cold or the like.

Okay, be back tomorrow I’m zonked.

Welcome home Kare! Disembarkation and flying back home is never fun. But at least you get to sleep in your own bed tonight.

Mom has an early meeting in town Tuesday morning, so she is staying over tomorrow night.

We're supposed to be pretty warm this week, and melt some snow.

Back to work tomorrow

Good Morning cold out this morning 20 something but warming up to 40 -tonight snow AGAIN but only 3 or so inches so not too bad

Welcome home Kare - glad your feeling a bit better - you have to find out the name of the black thingy that helped your throat -
Your right getting off is never fun always takes forever - Although I remember going on Allure and with all those people it was so quick it seems they have their act together

Udi - Have fun getting your nails done today - How is Pinky this morning

Iz - Glad to hear your getting some warmer weather like I always say we usually get your weather a week or so later so that's something to look forward too.

Hi all

Nope, never fun getting off and according to the Scots they had a long wait too but didn't matter to them so much as they're still playing (and lunching with Udi and Pinkman today) in Fort Lauderdale. I hear it's really Spring Break at the hotel they're at lol and all kinds of partying and bikinis in the halls

No didn't get the name - I asked - he said someone gave him some and they were miracle lozenges and they are too!
I'll ask him again and get some when I'm over there in July. I bet they're something like Burdock - which is an herb. The Scots love Burdock - either that or cocaine

Well laundry is done and the rest of the time I've been planted to my chair once again working!
Here we go ....bizzy bizzy

I need my nails done - I had shellac and have to get it taken off! My nails grow so fast they're not looking so pretty.
I painted over them today with sheer pinkish to fill in the gaps lol
Probably shouldn't have oooops.

Eating out tonight ONLY because I've had no chance to shop for food and Shelby's in NYC so we can go eat meat someplace!

See ya later

P.S kinda cool here too but it has been very mild so there's not a blob of snow left anywhere and the grass is greening up.
It will do!

The best deal leaving the ship is if you can do the express thing where you put them out the night before leaving and then don't have to deal with them until your home airport. But it seems we either stay another night or If we fly our home town airline it's not part of the program. So it isn't an option often.

Mom is staying over tonight. I'm not sure when she will show up since I told her she didn't have to come early enough to go to dinner since we're going out for Nate's birthday on Thursday.

I made a pan of lasagna and brought it down to the freezer. I think we're going to cook a turkey on Sunday. Om bought the turkey before our last cruise, I think it was on sale after the holidays.

I guess it's nice that it's still light out now and for more than another hour, but I don't like going to work in dark again

Kare, you are the laundry queen! It takes me a couple weeks to fetal our laundry done after vacation.

Later, Iz

Hi all
Home and just finished dinner. We weren't hungry after lunch with Wee and Doug so ate some tuna on crackers.
Had such a good time talking and eating with them. Never a lull in the conversation. So happy to see them after so long. Wish could all make plans to do it together again. This year is our 55. Do we have to wait for our 60th before we get together?? That will make it our CC post 20 years together.
Couple of appts this week. Pinky did well driving and sitting at the restaurant. But still not all better. Dicisions will have to be made soon.
Be back inthe am. Nothing on the schedule tomorrow but Publix and Target. Yay food!
Sweet dreams all

We can’t do that I’m afraid as we are considered an international flight. Such a bummer.

I’d like to send my bags there alone and home alone.

Aww Udi they say said the same about you both, they loved seeing you again. Wish I was there they’re good friends and oh so easy to travel with. It would be lovely to be together again and we will!

Okay, watching some tv now as long as my eyes stay open ..

Enjoy your mom visit Iz.

Finally here I am - spent a lot of time on the phone this morning with Elaines daughter - talking about what will happen with her Mom -

It was snowing prettyhard this morning - but we probably on got about 3-4 inches.

Rich has his stiches out today finally now he has glue and strips for another couple of days and then that's it. Dr. really nice he was happy with him.

Lisa starts her movie tomorrow with Paul this are in a crowd scene I think they are skinheads not really positive on that and not sure about the name of the movie

Udi - I want Pinky to get better are they any other options open to him like a chiropractor or acupuncture what about Reike (sp)
I like all those alternative things. But maybe they are not for him.
Glad you helped Iz get your salary - Oh & I soooo ready for a cruise I would love to go with you guys again just let me know when.

Hi ..

Odd day here - windy and snowy one minute and sunny the next?? Not sticking though so I guess it's ok.

Had a luncheon event in the office with Crystal Cruises.
I only went for the lunch lol ..wine too but I didn't imbibe.

My laundry may be all done Iz but the ironing will sit until I'm ready to do it - maybe next month
I cheated and put some dressier pants in the dry cleaners so I don't have quite as many.

Oh poor Pinky , it's hanging on and on ..miserable

How is Elaine today Piggles?


I just put a crown pork in the oven.
Will roast some parmesan potatoes - red peppers and zucchini and do a Greek side salad.
Not very ambitious I'm afraid.

Have a good evening ..

On Celebrity their luggage valet service includes domestic and international for most of their participating airlines.

I'm bummed because yet again I don't get to go back to Tortola Our Disney cruise is going back to St. Maarten. Seems to me St. Maarten was hit harder Oh well at least we can stock up on the Guavaberry hut stuff we like. And we'll save the $230 ôur Tortola excursion costs.

Take a look at our Silhouette sailing November 14 2019 for a 56th anniversary reunion cruise. ABC islands and home in time for US Thanksgiving.

I'm having a tini. I made a chocolate cake for WP's birthday that was on Saturday. I should come up with a new name for her because she isn't witchy any more I forgot these GF cake mixes make small cakes, square pan instead of oblong.

Had a nice visit with Mom last night. She will be back on Thursday and we will see Nate for his birthday.

I guess Om will be home after HD, no overnight tonight. His boss is on vacation so his schedule is different and hard for me to keep track.

A good note about our Disney cruise, we got our cruise documents in the mail today, I didn't realize anyone still sent out a packet, but fun to look through!

I'll be around all evening.

Another reason I need to get away from Princess!
I’m weary of them.. and the Caribbean. That poor client that travelled for days and got nowhere (!) said St Maarten was in rough shape still.

I’ll be bankrupt after Azamara and the British open in July 2019 so ....nada for me.

Ohhhh WP is better now? Bonus!

I picked up Disney docs today and Regent , not for me sadly. I thought same thing, nice to see something other than sheets of paper

We’re watching the last Star Wars movie, strange to see carrrie fisher

Good Morning - very chilly out this morning brrr I see the weatherman is talking about another nor'easter - OMG enough already.

Nothing much new around here just a relaxing day - talked to Elaine last night they sent her back to the nursing home she has 55 more days covered under her ins. then she will have to pay or go home to her daughters - the only problem will be she can't get fluids at home and she needs them because she is so dehydrated - she is very weak and frail so we will see what the next 55 days bring.

Ok I will be around

Good morning

Shelby’s in NYC and supposed to come home tonight, hope it doesn’t affect her flight. Those routes are bad enough with delays. Looks like she’s had a busy time work wise and whooped it up in the evenings lol. Polo bar and other swishy spots.

Why has Elaine gone back to that nursing home, it was horrible wasn’t it? I guess she has no say? Can she not go into palliative care? An added worry .. for all.

Sunny day , not a clue what the forecast is. I’m still digging out with cruise stuff and my own getting home chores.

On that note...be back later!

Hi there
Home after a trying time trying to rearrange our pre-need funeral plans. Decided not to go to NY to be buried. Going to the fire instead and have ashes scattered across the Caribbean. Yay
But they were totally inefficient and we wasted the entire morning there and still have to go back this afternoon to resign the papers we signed this morning as they were all wrong. Don't ask ....was a total mess.
Pinky is throwing in the towel and getting a orthropod name to go see as soon as he can. No good news on his pain.
Will keep all posted when I have news.
Toodles for now

I started to read and thought OMG I'm on the wrong thread!


I know it's something that has to be done ..but ...hate the thought.
We've needed to go to our lawyers for ages now to sign a revised version of our wills - we've added a catastrophe clause as recommended by our lawyer and I don't even seem to have the get up and go to do that!
Of course getting us both available on a weekday between business hours isn't easy either.

I think it's wise that Pinky takes next steps for some relief.
Have to be able to function and live life!!

Okay - off to express post cruise docs.

Bye for now

Good Morning

Wow, me first?
Ha who knew

Sunny, likely cool...haven’t poked my nose out. Federico took Shelby. Hurry up Spring! Did it snow there Piggles?
How’s Elaine today?

I’ve nothing but nothing to tell ya ..
I’m going to get this shellac off my nails and a regular manicure then our Scottish friend Bill ...is in transit to Vancouver where he’s going fishing next and has a 4 hour stopover here so Terry’s going to collect him at the ap and take him for a late lunch and I’ll go meet them. Brenda might, if she can change her massage appt. Not enough time to bring him home here with traffic back and forth unfortunately. The rest of them leave FLL today headed home

Hope Pinky had a better night .. pain is so debilitating.

How are things in the West Erri? Hope all is well.

Iz, still can’t post at work?
Miss your lunchtime updates.

Okay, off I go..happy day everyone.

Good Afternoon I don't know what happened to the morning but I guess I missed it I was on the phone a LOT LOL but then that's the way it goes

Spoke to Elaine she is okay today the hospital is looking for another place for her to go but so far no luck - I spoke to my friend John this morning he says he does not understand why she can't get fluids at home from an RN he has a friend that did it
So called Sue (elaines daughter) and told her that and she will look into it further.

Kare that's basically what she is getting palliative care she isnot getting any treatment - Sounds like your back home and into your busy routine pretty soon it will be time for another vacation lol

Iz - Yes I too miss your lunchtime posts

Udi - How is Pinky this morning did he find an ortho dr yet.

Eri - We have not heard from you for a while now. what's going on
