WOW they moved us again. That is amazing as it was just the 4 of us most of the time.

 

Congrats Jo on your milestone posting. There is no way any of us will catcch up with Bob.

Just got home from 4 days in Vegas. Gambling was horrible, horrible horrible. Played at Caesars (where we stayed). then Paris and then Ballys and then Mandalay Bay. Guess we have decided for a hwile we we stick to the local casinos and not spend all the $$$ on flights to Vegas.

Ann, sorry to see those results. Those are 4 casinos I don't play there. Never did any good at them. I haven't been to the racino in almost a week. Might sneak up tomorrow. Lots of discussions around here about opening a full casino in Albany. Some people are using the old logic that gambling creates addicts. Don't bars do the same thing? Close them down then.

Bob, I hope that cat wasn't looking at you when he made that face. The night before we went to our 11 year old twin Granddaughters house last week they had to put their cat to sleep. What the vet did was she came over to the house and did it there with the girls present. They handled it very well. Funny cat. Off to the racino this morning after I get my snow tires off the car. Watch how hard it snows here this afternoon.

Best of Luck to you at the racino. I agree with Bob, that must be a record if you have not gone to the racino for a week.

 

Happy Easter Celebration to all. Hope that your weather cooperates and is bright and sunny for a glorius Easter Sunrise Service.

A good morning wish to my fellow Emerald Alum. I hope everyone has a great day and a fantastic weekend. I got shut out of overtime this weekend so I'm off till Monday morning. Holli has a doctor's appointment later today where we will hopefully receive good information that her shoulder/arm are starting to heal well.

 

Take Care Everyone.....:):):)

Very sorry to hear about your granddaughters cat. It always hard when we loose a four legged family member. Best of luck at Racino.....:):):)

The racino wasn't very friendly today. So I'll just wait till I'm on the Dawn to hit the next casino. I like that casino. Working again tonight. 5 days of work this week. Haven't done that in years. Nice weather for Easter and we have a big family party planned. After the party we'll have less than a week till our cruise. Everyone have a super weekend.

Cannot believe the bad luck spread from Vegas to your racino. Oh well, like you said, try your luck on the Dawn in a short time. I will wait for 2 weeks and try my luck in the casino on the Crown.

Under 200 hours till be board the ship. 197. 192 till we board the plane. We're flying down the morning of the cruise. Never did that before. But Tampa is overflowing with people next weekend. Some kind of big party going on. So worst that could happen is we miss the ship and just fly to Grand Cayman from Tampa.

 

Bob, hoping Holli gets some good news and enjoy your weekend off. Actually going up into the 60's here tomorrow.

 

Have a great Easter.

Thanks for the post congratulations especially your cheery one Bob!

 

Bob ~ hope all turned out well with Holli's appt & you got the news you were hoping for.

 

Grandpaul ~ sorry to hear about your Grandcat. That was nice of the vet to come to the house. Leave that ship in good shape for me as I'll be bringing her back to New Orleans in the fall.

 

Just 366 hours 'til I sail away & I can hardly wait. 2 weeks from today I'll be flying to Miami.

 

Happy Easter! We already had our turkey dinner with the kids yesterday.

Sounds good Bob. I would think it is a good sign.

 

181 hours to go. Tomorrow will go by quick with the family egg hunt and dinner. These are my nieces and nephews and their kids. Have a great Easter Sunday. I'm sure the word "chocolate" will be popping up in mine.

Just went under 170 hours till we board. Long range weather only looks like the 80's in Tampa. I'm not too anxious to maybe sweat a little. Not sure if I remember how to. But it will come to me I'm sure. My 7 heart old Granddaughter, Daniella, just delivered easter baskets to us. She's a sweetheart.

It is a glorious Easter morning out here and the day is promising to be just perfect for Easter celebrations. Hope no one has snow on the ground where the eggs will freeze prior to the egg hunt. But the chocolate bunnies will not melt.

 

The Crown Princess was having a great deal of niro virus cases about 2 weeks ago. Heard that the boarding was delayed in LA yesterday for another cleaning of the ship. So I fugure if they cleaned well yesterday, clean again well on the 26th, it should be germ free when we get on the following weekend, May 03. Fingers crossed :D

312 hours for me.

Ann, sounds like the ship should be shipshape. Just came from our Easter Egg Hunt. The kids had a blast. As we did watching them. One couple announced they were expecting again. So it sounds like they did their egg hunt a while ago. Perfect weather here just like California today.

159 hours to go. Less than one week. Seemed like forever to get to this time frame. Also good there are some good tv shows coming up this week. Red Sox vs Yankees is always interesting.

147 hours to go. Now I have to get one of my cars back working. Mary Lou backed i tout of the driveway and the transmission doesn't respond at all. SHe said it was funny when two women were trying to push the car out of the middle of the road. But if she can raise 4 sons a car is easy.

Grandpaul,

Great news about the weather there and the egg hunt and the family day and your countdown clock getting closer and closer; bad news about the car. Hope it is nothing too extensive.

Also, do you have another cruise planned yet? i remeber your rule to alwys have another cruise planned prior to going on one?

Good luck with the car.

I wanted to book another cruise but the Front office(Mary Lou) told me not to do anything. She has a 50th Anniversary special coming up I guess. I assume "special" is a foreign word for "casino".

 

Just had the car towed. Just a little bracket underneath that holds a cable to the transmission rusted off and doesn't allow the cable to work properly.

 

144 hours left.

Good afternoon all. Just got up about an hour or so ago after working the night overlap shift with a Deputy that I had to certify was ready to get off training status. We were scheduled to be off at 0200 this morning but I did not leave till 0500. The youngster did good and I will release him from his training status effective Saturday....:):):)

I just heard one of my favorite quotes on TV recently. "A happy wife is a happy life". I should get a royalty at least.

This goes under the "Weird" category. Mary Lou and I love a cartoon in the paper every day called Mother Goose and Grimm. Really a funny sense of humor. So on our last cruise before we left I bought a book of a couple hundred of the writers cartoons to read on the ship. Not much better than sitting on the deck of a ship reading something that really makes you laugh. In the book was a little biography about the writer. I was more than a little surprised to read he had graduated from a Christian Brothers school in 1961. Same thing I had done. No wonder he was a little "different". LOL. So last night I had some time to kill and I ordered another of his books for our next cruise. In the writeup for the book it mentioned the website for this author. I got on it and saw a biography there. To say I was a little shocked would put it mildly. He was born the same day I was.
