Hey Guys!

Here's our new thread. The old one will be completely shut down soon, so if there's anything you need to get from there, you need to do it soon.

So everybody check in when you can. I'm on my way to volunteer at a special needs camp for their lunchtime.

Back later......Hope to see that you all have found us!

Yeah....me, too.....but you gotta do what you gotta do. Every time I would pull that thread up or refresh it.....it took forever to load. I'm sure it was doing its share of clogging things up.

OK....where are the rest of you? I thought everyone would have checked in by now!

I need to go ahead and request my certificate from Bank of America for our free cruise. We have way more than enough points for one. I'm afraid the points are going to expire. Now I just have to find a time when we can go on another cruise.

HEY, I'm here: WELCOME TO OUR NEW HOME, everybody!!!!!
Not difference for now, I think...... Everything's OK with us: Bill's doing fine! The pic on FB is not really telling the true story; he cant take the bandage off, until we will see the doc, next week....... cant get it wet, so back to sponge baths......but other then that, he's fine, I think: just told me today, that he got it up to here!!!!!! hahahaha and I know what he means. I'm doing OK too: surgery next week, and hopefully I'll be seeing the light, too! Has been soooooooo long for solid food, that I got it up to here, too!!!!!!!! Other then that, everything's fine: very hot and humid; thousand of mosquitos and they ALL waiting for me to get out of THAT door......
Jane, when can you cruise again? Maybe we can get the same date...... who knows.....
Hey REV, where are you??????
Hi to everybody, and please keep our new home busy.....
Talk to you later. Hey Barry, I'm going to ask to be your friend in FB, OK?
Have a good one,
Franca

Slowly but surely the family is finding their way home! Just waiting for the rest of you.

I'll bet Rev is watching Big Brother!!

About the only time I can cruise is over Christmas....and then there is Spring Break. We got a good deal on a cruise this past spring. We'll see. We'll definitely be watching xome of the Christmas/New Year's weeks for price cuts.....possibly a last minute thing. Who knows?

No that we are going, but its nice to dream: Bill wanted t know when we were going on a cruise, he knows, just teasing me about it...... so I'm going to check the prices out......
Hope that some more people find our home!!!!!!!
Have a good weekend, everybody.... see you soon, I hope

Where are you all?
It is lonely here without you.
Freeways closed and most folks out here are staying close to home.
I am working because we are going to Santa Fe next week. While we will see the kids daily, we are bringing another couple with us and are staying in a hotel, like tourists.

Let us know how everyone is holding up!

Good Morning!

Lazy day yesterday with sports overload....The Women's World Cup match and the British Open. Whew! I was worn out.

Chatting on a Celebrity roll call is so not the same as on the RC roll calls!

When is Rev supposed to be back?

Nothing on the schedule today except doing some ironing.

Looks like it's just you and me, Franca/ I sent everyone the link.

Guess what? The phone rang yesterday morning and it was the dentist. The impression that they took last week was not good. I was bleeding too much.....so they have to take another one.....can I come right then? Ughh!! So I go and it was much more involved than I thought. Several shots, a lot of work on the gums, etc.....then the new impression. I hope that's over with now!

Going to do some retail therapy today. I don't have any money, so it will be a short trip!

John's eye surgery is tomorrow.

OH WOW...... I dont like dentists at all: look at what I'm going through because of a bad dentist, years ago!!!!!! My surgery is tomorrow, and I dont really care to go, because I dont know what the future will hold: they feel that is going to be a breeze..... Well, let see: I just want to be able to eat "normal" food again...... Best wish for your issue and the best to John; keep us, er me, informed!
Rev's fine, she is very busy with Pat house, and she will need few more days; Have fun shopping, or just looking: I'm doing lot of that lately; the cruises fund its going down, down, down and I need to replenish it; after the March one, it will be a while for the next one; but before that we got 5 already booked, so that is nice.......
Have a good night, and I'll see you as soon as I'll feel a little better,
Franca

Hi All!

We are home from the hospital and all is fine for now. We go to the doctor's office tomorrow to see how it went. Just staying inside from now until the week-end because of the extreme heat. It is something.

Franca.....hope all has gone well at the dentist. I can really empathize with you on that one. Let us know.

Finally on line.
Good morning my friends,
It has been a roller coaster ride around here.
Got back on the 14th (and you're right Jane I did watch Big Brother)
Pat is nipping at the bit, she wants to get into her house so bad.
Thursday we went furniture shopping. That was a blast. We furnished the whole house in less than a day. Most of the furniture arrived yesterday, the rest comes Saturday.
Friday we went to buy TV's and a mattress for Pat's new bed, unfortunately between the parking lot and the bedding department I lost my wallet. It had all my Credit cards, my driver's licence AND my medicare card, which has my SS number on it. Who ever found it is NOT an honest person because it has not been returned and it will be a week tomorrow. We checked security at the mall, the store lost and found, etc. then rushed home to cancel all my CC cards and notify medicare. Our driver's licences have the exact birth date on them, so I am really screwed!
But no time for being screwed right now, I had a Sears card at home and another credit card, so we went back to the store and got the TV's and mattress.
Saturday we decided to get a few more items so we ventured out.
Sunday I can't remember it was a blur
Monday doctor's and the work people are finishing up at Pat's house and replacing my old doors in my house.
Tuesday and Wednesday some furniture arrived, and the workman were at both Pat and my house, some of my furniture is being up dated. It is great golden oak solid wood furniture, and I would rather up date it then trade it in for the new 'stuff" they now sell.
Today the moving van is coming with all of Pat's stuff from her trailer, most of which we are getting rid of, but she insisted in hanging on to it, she would not listen to me. So now all the old furniture she has is going (most of it was really not worth keeping). The maid and Pat's daughter are over at the house putting all her clothes and nickknacks away. I got her black and white Fiesta Ware for dishes, it really looks great.
I will try to take some pictures and show you the before and after.
The pool will not be ready until at least Monday as the PH was way too high and needs adjusting, she will have pool service.
OK, that's what is happening here.
Jane, glad John is home from surgery
Franca, hang in there, this too shall pass. And get to the dentist and get this stuff going so you have plenty of time to heal for our trip.
Andrea, I was thinking about you re: Carmageddon (spelling?). How are you making out?
The rest of you, please stay well. I hope you stop by and say hello every once in a while.
Have a great day.
Rev
