We are heading up to JH early Monday morning for a few days. We'll be there NLT 11:00 AM. At 1:00 PM we'll be sitting in the Cowboy Bar having a couple of drinks. Then about 4:00 PM we'll be heading over to Merry Piglets for dinner. Good food, drinks and atmosphere. 🍻🍹🌮 

Enjoy,Dave

Leaving CocoCay shortly for a one night sail back to reality. Sigh. CocoCay is enjoyable with only 2400 passengers. “Front row” lounge chairs were all taken but you could find a chair and umbrella just about anywhere else.  We went ashore as soon as we were released to do so and had front row lounge chairs looking directly at the floating bar, which we used a couple of

times. It was slightly overcast which helped with the heat and the potential sunburn.

Overcast may help with the heat, but it only makes the sunburn sneak up on you.  You will definitely get a bad burn if you are not careful.

I would love to be young again.I was just e-mailing with a guy who I last saw 67 years ago .We were discussing the good old days.

Lenny, I don't want to be young again. I'm enjoying my new life, retirement way too much. Not to pat myself on the back, but I'm still in excellent health and shape. What's weird is I don't know who the hell the old fart is that is starring back at me every time I look in the mirror. 😂

As long as you can remember the good times, you can always revisit them!

Love Jackson Hole. My brother used to live there and I would visit for some fantastic skiing.

I've never skied JH's slopes. We only go to JH in July and September. We have taken the Teton Village tram up to the summit a few times in July. Then back down for drinks and dinner at the Mangy Moose.

Nice!  I can't wait to cruise again!  Well, I do have to wait until February😁

Mayann I will be thinking of you and Jim and hoping for a successful operation. I plan on having both my knees done next year. I know the first month is not fun but everyone tells me that rehab is the key. Good luck and let us know how Jim is doing afterwards.

Thank you so much, Greg.  Yes, we've heard that rehab is the key.  I know Jim will do the right thing...he's been in pain for way too long.  He's hoping his second operation will be scheduled much sooner than this next year.

That’s wonderful. Who says we can’t be young again!

That's right, Mimi!  As we all know, age is just a number.  I always feel so much younger while in Florida.  As much as we love and miss our daughters and grandchildren, in Naples, we are a couple, as are all of our friends there.  We're not Nana and Pop🤷‍♀️

When I get told my password is wrong, I click on forgot password. Then I put in my original password as a new password. And it gets accepted!

 Mine are in a password booklet and in Dashlane. So I know I’m entering the right password, the website forgot it!

Thank you, Mimi!  I'll give it a try on my phone.

Lastly I heard, the new Pfizer adapted to the Delta variant will be ready in December....

So I imagine this will be a 4th vacc?

 

The news makes it seem like only Pfizer 3rd shot (booster) is available when so many of us already received Moderna 3rd shot.  News changes daily. 

 

Meanwhile, today was lovely.  Perfect weather and we had breakfast out with 4 friends of ours.  Original Pancake House.  Omelet had to go back, dry as toast.  Pancakes were...pancakes,  Then some food shopping and now sitting relaxing  waiting for my unstuffed cabbage to finish cooking.

 

My mother did not own any measuring cups or spoons, nor pot holders.  She always used a dish towel that was always handy to remove hot pans from the oven.  She used a pinch of this, a small handful of that.  She only had a few recipes she cut out of the newspaper.   I, on the other hand have a multitude of measuring cups, spoons, pot holders, recipe books, a bajillion kitchen utensils all of which doesn't help me come close to the excellent cook she was....sigh.

It's great skiing. The vertical drop is steeper than most resorts but the snow and powder is amazing.

We have great powder here also. Or should I say use to! The last couple of years haven't been snow makers that we are use to. I didn't even ski last season.

My mom made excellent biscuits.  When I asked for her recipe, she said 1 cup flour, 2 teaspoons baking power, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 2 forks of shortening, and enough milk to moisten well.  I have never been able to reproduce her delicious biscuits, as I must have a different size fork than she did.  🙂

My daughter tells me she can't duplicate my chicken soup which I watched my mother make once a week and holidays.  I still feel it isn't as good as hers.  Some recipes made from the heart can't be duplicated.

Yep.... Though some experts say that the 3rd shot will keep longer....

 

Huge disappointment that the 2 first shots kept only 5-6 months. Yes, it seems that Moderna "lasts" longer than Pfizer.

 

In the end, if 1-2 shots per year will enable us to get our lives back, I'm all IN.

I sleep on my stomach so that wasn't a problem.  I think if I had remembered to move my arms around more after each shot it would have helped.  I am glad to have them out of the way. 


hHad you remembered to keep your arms active it would have helped some. I know it helped me a lot. I just now have to see about where to get my flu shot this year.  Last year it was mission impossible, hopefully this year is easier.

For everyone who was so helpful in making me feel better about poisoning my cats 🙀😢 I’m happy to report that around 7 pm they started to act like their usual selves.  Diana started playing with her ball/scratcher pad toy and Minnie started trotting around nudging everything.  I think there may be midair leaping and batting Temptations down with one paw later. 😊🥰

 

Thanks again for all the support.  It really really helped me.
