Mimi, DH just explained it in more detail because I missed a important note in the original instructions. It starts by having that 401 app we have and then going from there.  So, without that app he isnt't sure how to get the card into the wallet.  Nice thing about the app is that it has the QR and by snapping a photo it recognized it and asked if he wanted to add to his wallet.   Once he did it asked if he wanted to add it to his wallet.  Good luck.  We might have killed some brain cells figuring out how to do it but it is done.

LOL.  I like the Fairlife milk for its stability and my daughter told me the other day it was on sale.  Normally I would go on Friday but I already wrote off that expedition.  I stopped and picked it up, along with a pizza and some other necessities, like the shoes I ordered from DSW.

I don’t have a lot of brain cells left after hitting the wall. A friend said I was lucky not to hit a stud. 
She doesn’t know our condo unit has two rows of concrete blocks between us and the next unit. A little harder and I’d have zero brain cells!

The iPhone Wallet should be a repository for important docs as well as credit cards. 
Just looked at the App Store. There are apps for vaccine passports. All I have to do is move to England or Newfoundland Labrador.

Side by sides are a nice treat too.   Let's hope that by March 2023 we are not still worrying about the 2 test day rule.   

I thought you had sailed on a recent cruise or maybe I am confusing with someone else.  

How is your condo in FL?    Hope you have been able to enjoy it🤩

Havent cruised since dec and am in withdrawals. B2b this time. I only did one week last time with fromseatoshining sea .. so fun but they are on mariner now.

 

That condo is a money pit. We of course asked about reserves and special assessments when I bought and were told great shape. They meet I think last monday about the elevator rusting ($3500 assesment) and the cause and the sidewalk is causing water to get into the elevator shaft and causing rust. Lol. Maybe its everything costs more but condo reserves are tapped out (reserves down to 15k). The condo is one thing after another. I keep thinking there is nothing left not replaced. Can we blame supply chain? Idk when I can move but it's there when I'm ready and nothing they can do to ruin the beautiful beach.

 

Solo I will concentrate more on doing things I missed and the brisket I wished I tried and poblano soup. Some lobster in my future. Sunny ports. I'm in Belize next week and rarely get there but not sure I think the tender is safe. You sit shoulder to shoulder .. wouldnt be back until next sept, labor day. Just ancy to board.

Great news.
 

Same here, but only one shop which I thought was odd. They must be more concerned about covid than other shops. Hoping they stay safe.

 

The one thing they weren’t lax about was that darn hand sanitizer. I must have put it on over 20 times while out in town.

 

Does Heather Tesch still work there? Mike and her husband used to fly together when they were both in the Navy many years ago. Lost touch with them a long time ago so I’m not sure if they are still married.

 

That’s hibernation time. 🥶

 

Uber can’t drive into the port? That’s crazy, but I guess it discourages people from taking them if that’s what Galveston is trying to achieve.

Yes,that is what I have been saying .The worst thought is losing electricity.

I got the CC crud this morning.  Unfortunately, it's been happening more frequently so I just wait it out until I can post again.  

 

I received a very special email yesterday.  My oldest and dearest friend from 3rd grade dug up a very old video her husband took of their visit to us in May, 1980.  It lasted only 3 minutes but what a trip down memory lane!  I was actually wearing jeans with a top tucked into my waist  with a belt!  Jack looks fabulous but he always does. 😍

 

Of course we have tons of photos through the years but this came so unexpectedly and so welcomed.

The Way We Are Now or at least in 2018

So glad to hear @Ocean Boy@DaniDanielle@ReneeFLLare enjoying their cruises.  Nice to know those painkillers really work for OB!

 

Hope all those who have covid are recuperating with no after effects.

 

 

A few years ago I got in touch with my best friend from the sixth grade.We were the only kids in the school who had red hair.When we spoke he told me that his hair was still red whereas mine was white.

I cannot wait till it will be that way everywhere .

It has never been mandatory here.  At first a lot of businesses required them but we haven't had to wear masks for a year now except to the veterinarian's office.  Today I had lunch with my son and the servers didn't even wear them.

Idk seems like the port is charging big bucks extra to transports. Lyft can get in and adds $5 to your total. I can certainly walk across the port into the terminal, just not sure what to type in. I downloaded uber so hopefully it's easy to use. Ezcruise parking guy posted he pays $25 each time his shuttle drives into the port. Most parking offers shuttles for extra .. and it's not like it's a really long walk. Got a earful from my taxi driver about houston taxi not licensed to drive in there. The port is making out like a bandit.

wonder why they never resurfaced ?

They’re living on unemployment compensation. 😀

 

Or they are in Times Square dressed in Spiderman or Batman costumes, posing for pictures in return for a $10 "tip"😄

Yup, that is one problem with condos / HOA's - and I guess after that collapse of the Miami condo that everyone is on high alert and inspecting/repairing everything and anything to keep them safe.    Better safe than sorry!!

I am not a fan of those tenders and glad it is Not done as much as it was in the past for some ports.   

Hope you have an awesome time in Belize.    My Brother and SIL always love snorkeling there.

Hey Below Deck fans question???

Was last Monday's episode the last episode? We will watch tomorrow night. Just curious how many more episodes there may be. This is the last charter I think. I don't know if they are going to have a reunion or not. Below Deck Sailing season 3 start February 21st.

Definitely not a job that I'd want.  I've always been impressed with the procedure that they use when changing lifeguards, with the incoming guard thoroughly looking at the pool and then the outgoing guard doing the same.  Doesn't take much to impress me.

Could easily save a life, so I’m impressed, too. Sometimes you can see but not comprehend. Shift changes is when things happen. Two sets of eyes is better than one.

Belize is the longest tender in the world. Or it had that title. I dont mind tendering except right now seems risky. Takes at least half a hour to fill up then almost 30 minutes to get there and you are shoulder to shoulder with strangers. I have to pass another covid test to do a b2b or I would chance it. 

 

Yes it seems the sidewalk slopes and water runs off into the elevator shaft. Lol my downstairs neighbor was going to the meet up last monday but wrote back she has covid. Hmmm. 

 

OB hope you are enjoying your cruise. Maybe you need to stay on another week and miss the weather up there. .. so ready for some sunshine.

Yes, to be shoulder to shoulder on a tender is probably not a good idea right now but it is outdoors. But like you said I would do whatever I needed to make sure i tested negative for a b2b.    We did get crammed onto buses in Barbados and their bus terminal had everyone packed in like sardines as we stood waiting for our bus to go to the beach.

No, there is one more episode at least.  I hope there is a reunion but haven't heard about it yet.

One guy was totally disrespectful to his wife on the show that aired last night.Since there are only two married couples on the show it kind of narrows it down .

He is very likely a total jerk to her at home, too. If she puts a dent in the car, burns the toast, forgets to buy cereal, I can see him tearing her down verbally.

Yes, one was awful as usual but the other is the one that was trying to "reassure" his wife prior to her turn at the roadblock.  They aren't going to let you do something that will kill you is not reassuring.  

And she looked almost sick to her stomach thinking about it. 
Both of the women made me proud!
