So very sorry to hear that news Bob. Hope that she finds some relief soon.

I think I did something right. Several hours ago Holli, while still feeling bad, was lamenting about missing the ballet tonight. I logged into Amazon Prime on the Smart TV in the bedroom and put on the Nutcracker as performed by the Bolshoi. It was like night and day. At the end of the show, she was smiling and she said she felt much better than she did when I first started playing the movie.....

It does indeed kinda stink. Her health is obviously of the utmost importance.....

Absolutely Bob. I remember a while ago we had to cancel a long cruise around South America because of a problem I wa shaving. Fortunately it was one of the few times I had travel insurance and I knew a good Dr. for the condition I was having. But Marylou was terrific in her support of me. I am a lucky man.

I am by far the lucky one. I don’t know what I would do or how my life would have ended up if I didn’t have Holli.....

We're in the same boat. Or is it a ship. Either one. 47 hours.

Under 24 hours. And hopefully they are right. Looks like most of the snow tomorrow will be north of us so travel to NYC shouldn't be difficult. Glad I'm not driving.

Hi all!

I don't post much on here but do read to keep up with all your activities.

Ann ~ congrats on your new booking & finding a new port to see! I'm looking for a cruise that goes to Iceland overnight
& also St John's NL where my oldest DD now lives. I did the Golden Circle tour when in Reykjavik in June but would like to do the south coast trip without actually having to stay there. I see you have a cruise in the not too distant future too.

Bob ~ sorry to hear of Holli's illness but great that you found a ballet to cheer her when you couldn't go to the actual one.
What a sweet thing to say about having Holli.
Yikes, those fire pictures look terrible & so close to the city eh?

Grandpaul ~ reading about all your activities tires me out!!
Bon Voyage & have a great trip & safe drive to the port. It's a cold 16F here but sunny. No snow on the ground yet but they're predicting some later on. Sure hope it doesn't keep me from going out tomorrow especially since I'll be baking & making a salad for our Wii bowling banquet!
Have a great week!

Hi Jo. Good to hear from you. The snow doesn't look too bad tomorrow. A little north of us it will be colder so more snow. Marylou has almost all the packing done.

7 and 1/2 hours. Hope I can get some sleep. I probably won't be getting on a computer on the ship. I've sort of quit that. I got other things to do. Might check in in the morning if I have a couple minutes. Just be nice while I'm away.

Bon Voyage. May it be a safe and wonderfully relaxing vacation and cruise for you both.
You will be missed.

Jo,
Glad to hear that all is well with you although very very cold. We are having very hot weather. I am ready for winter and cooler than the 80's that we are having. Be careful driving and I hope snow does not interfere with your plans.

Yes, less than 3 weeks after the New Year, I will be off on a Panama Canal cruise. More hot weather. Oh well, it will be a great cruise due to the great people that I am going with.
