Grandpaul ~ looks like we're having the same kind of weather as you. Milder temps today with the snow melting then a freeze is to come. Boo, you just reminded me our tax bill should come next month.

Ann ~ so sorry to hear of your friends & family experiencing these tragic events. Sure hope all turns out well for them.
Will your cruise go through the old Canal or the new one? Somebody who's thinking of coming on my PC cruise in Nov. is undecided as his TA friend said the old one is much more interesting than the new.
Sounds like Jamaica is pretty crime filled too. An older Canadian couple was murdered there recently, another lady said she had her necklace ripped from her neck.

Bob ~ WTG making all that cruise fund overtime! Sure wish I had another source of income to fund my trips! Nothing left for this old girl to do to earn $$$.

Have a great weekend. Nothing but Church on my agenda & even that was cancelled last Sunday.

You could always try your luck at the 6/49.....

There are only 2 things I do in the Bahamas. Go to the casino. Surprise. And there is a dolphin encounter that is a lot of fun. zzz used to like to tour around Nassau. Some interesting places. Not any more. Got to be tough for the people that do live there. Sounds like New York City in the 70's.

I can't ever remember having our Church cancel a Mass on Sunday. During the week it happens quite often in the winter. Sometimes I cancel Mass when I'm on a cruise.

Drove home from the basketball game last night and it was over 50 degrees. Got up this morning and the ground is covered with snow. Not much though. Off to the college game today. Tomorrow the casino. Just got their highest rated card and they are having a party for us. And some free play. How can I lose?

Jo,
We will be going through the old locks as the new locks are really for the much bigger ships that cannot go through the old one. So for Princess, if they were inclined, I think the only ships they would put through the new locks would be the Royal and the Regal. But the day after we go through all the locks on the Coral, we have a tour to go back through some of the locks on a small boat. What a contrast that will be.
Stated some packing and will will do a great deal more on Sunday. Today is a Red Hat event at our local Oil Well Museum. Brea, CA was built around the oil industry way back when. Then lunch and finally tonight, I am running a Horse Race at the community right next to ours. So many people have the flu around here and I am trying to avoid getting sick before next Friday when we leave. Lots of Vitamin C. Hate to be around so many people today and night but oh well, i have committed m time to these events.
Stay warm.

We've done that tour through the locks in a small boat. Very different from the cruise ships. Funny looking up at the locks. I'm watching Dr. No now which was filmed next to the port in Jamaica. Off to the college womens game shortly. And the sun is out. Have an enjoyable day.

Send some of those 70 degrees here will you Ann. It is very cold out. Off to the casino with my noise sister Ann who happens to be the funniest person that has ever existed. They are having a party at the casino for the new top level players. How can I lose? Both our college basketball teams, the women and the men, won yesterday. Have a fun couple of days coming up.

Wish I could send some of our warmth to you.
Have fun at the Casino party and the machines. Win, win, win.
Doing in-depth packing today and off to see the movie The Post later this afternoon. Should be a great movie with Hanks and Streep.


Great day to you all.

Had another good run at the racino. Came in handy since I just paid off our last cruise and the few bucks we owe for our upcoming so-called free cruise.

You should have seen the ice on our cars this morning. Tomorrow we've got 2 basketball games at the same time. Solution: Marylou goes to one and I got to the other.
