Thank you for the Daily Report.

For me, Children's books sound like more fun than Fact Checking.

Sending prayers to everyone on the ships at sea.

Looks like Rotterdam, Zaandam, Nieuw Amsterdam, and Volendam are lined up just off the coast of South Florida

Thank you for the  report on April 2, 2020.  The Volendam is due in tomorrow.  Why is the Nieum Amsterdam here?  I wonderif both ships are here in support of the Rotterdam and Amsterdam.

Thanks for letting us know where the dam ships are today, Rich.

 

Fact checking is a must with some of the misinformation out there.  CBC news (which is a pretty reliable source) says that the Rotterdam and Zaandam are scheduled to dock at 1 pm and 1:30 pm EST.  (Not sure which one docks first).

Thank you for today’s report, Rich! And the extra screenshot showing the four Sisters. It is a sight for sore eyes.

 

I have spent the last three+ weeks fact checking, so I am going to try to avoid that today.

 

What no menu suggestions for tonight’s dinner? Geesh!

 

Stay well everyone!

I will be doing my best to catch the arrival of Z & R.  You might just hear me yell way up there!

 

Stay well!

I sure hope this is a special day for our HAL ships!’ May they all get to be home.

Have a wonderful snow day Joy! Stay safe.

Good morning!  Thank you, Rich, for the fleet report, and I'm late to this thread because I was watching on the other thread.  Zaandam and Rotterdam are on the horizon off Fort Lauderdale, waiting.  Hopefully, all will go smoothly, and the very sick will get to hospital, the well will continue on their journeys home, and the crews and others on board will cope with their situation.  

 

With the four ships lined up like that, I wonder if tenders can go back and forth?

Good morning!  (Yes, it's still morning here in Tucson)  Thank you for the report and maps today Rich.  I just checked the Marine Traffic Map and the R & Z are still off the coast.  My prayers are with them today as they wait.

Good afternoon KK!!

Weve been on the webcam for FLL and saw your reply’s! Hope your day goes well!

Do my experience at the store was different!

Wore gloves, had my dental protective glasses on over my own!! I wore my skiing bandana over my face😷

So surreal!!! I stood over where 65+ area was they sprayed the cart gave me a wipe and off into the store! What an experience!! My dental knowledge kicked in and what they were doing at check out was no more bringing your own bags! They have another cart and they place all items in the cart! I bagged them at my car to put into trunk!!! So I had gloves on which I had to take off and then sprayed the bags with fresh gloves on😳😳😳

next ordeal! All bags in garage change gloves again and proceeded to take food upstairs! This is one big ordeal! Now for me my new normal!

Sorry , I just needed to Vent and glad I am home!

I think of you both often and pray for all of our safety!

❤️So happy to see Rotterdam and Zaandam! Watching webcam👍

Thanks again Rich. I sure hope they get home safely. If I check my facts correctly this ordeal has gone on 3456 days. Or so it seems.

This turned out to be a good day indeed.  Thanks to President Trump who took a strong stand on behalf of all on both ships.

Goodness Denise! What an ordeal! 

I thought about doing the click list where you order groceries online, someone shops for you and you go to your parking slot and pick up your stuff. But, I want to shop my own things.. So tomorrow I'll run to Freddy's and get thru my groceries and zip home. It makes me so nervous!!
