Gotta love the national exposure.

 

It wasn't that long ago that the dream was the 2 New York teams would meet in the World Series, aka The Subway Series.  (Fun fact: the 2 stadiums are not on the same subway line. You have to go out of the way to transfer at Grand Central Station).

 

Now it's a dream if either team can make it that deep into the playoffs. 😟

The multi quotes throw me off  sometimes.  I get an e mail notification but it condenses it so this is what I see.

 

Vikki is also glad about no surgery.

Sorry, I have a twisted mind but I found that email to be hilarious.

My Daughter-in-law was a professor at UB when they were living in Williamsville. We always enjoyed great Muffaletos from Marco’s Italian Deli, and that was our Go to sandwich when we visited them.  
 

I just pulled up Marco’s menu, and it looks like they no longer have them on the menu.  Too bad, because it would be worth the trip to have one again.  

A son of one of my friends went to UB for undergrad and grad and is now a Professor at a college in Buffalo.

We just talked to our neighbors. No significant damage from Ian in our area. Just some small debris scattered around from the winds. We got lucky. 
 

Our little part of Florida, and nearby SE Georgia, has generally had good luck with hurricanes. If you look on a map, you’ll see that the Florida Atlantic coast runs a little west as it goes north, and the coast veers back to the east as it continues up in Georgia. We’re the furthest West Point on the east coast and hurricanes seem to “bounce” out to sea around us. Or at least that’s what I’m told by the locals near us. 

Northeast Florida is straight south of Pittsburgh!
Hurricanes coming up the coast zoom by far out enough out to miss the coast till at least Hilton Head. 
Dora found us in 1964 when she came straight in from the Atlantic and came ashore in St Augustine. 

The Jacksonville beaches lost a few houses and we lost power for 7 1/2 long days and nights. 
iI don’t think even then that the Amelia Island area got much damage.

I predict a Mets- Yankees World Series.

have any of you parked at the Port of Miami before? wondering how easy it is to find the garage for terminal A


We parked there for a B2B in January, and it was easy to get to.  The problem was, they didn’t open the garage to let you start parking there until noon, if I recall.  I don’t know if that is the way it normally is.  We had to drive around in circles till we could park.   
 

We also encountered a problem with their app to pay for parking after the cruise.  It was going to charge for the equivalent of 5 weeks or so, so I just took the ticket to the exit lane.  There, the ticket registered for only one week instead of two, so who knows what goes on with their system.

After quickly skimming through many, many posts checking up on everyone in Ian's path, I'm so relieved to read that all of our CC friends on here have fared pretty well as far as damage to homes, condos and cars, etc.  From what I've been able to find out, my community in Naples has lots of debris which is in the process of being cleaned up, roofs and AC on our roofs are being checked, and FPL is hoping to assess when they feel our Collier County would again regain electric.

 

Bon Voyage to all going on their cruises.

I also introduced this friend to The World's Most Amazing Travel Agent... and she has introduced her cruise friends to him as well.  I'm like the cruising version of a virus -- the gift that keeps on giving!


I “tested positive” for this virus a couple of years ago. Very happy that I did.

I took my daughter and granddaughter to her cheerleading game today.  The two school districts that were playing are only a couple miles from each other, but they were playing on a neutral site, and that meant about a 30 mile drive. 

 

The cheerleaders were dressed with pink highlights for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  She is not old enough to understand what is going on with her mom.  She was just happy to have the pretty pinks and the face sticker.

That game did have some tense moments.  They usually have medical personnel at the game, but I don’t know if someone dropped the ball because it was a neutral field.  One of our players went down with a neck injury, and he laid on the field for 20 minutes until the ambulance got there.  Thankfully, I hear his MRI came back clear. 

 

The team she cheers for won 30-8. 

 

Meanwhile, Susan went to our grandson’s game.  He had another great game, and another win 22-6.

First get together of our group of 7 couples since March 14th, 2020. Only one couple and DH "escaped" Covid...

 

The "biological" parents of my step cat were the hosts, which gave me the opportunity to see Lichy "in person" after almost 3 years.... it was a very happy reunion 😍

I would hope you aren't going to be bothered with an ongoing review for 36 weeks straight on cruise critic. I know I wouldn't be doing it.

True CC rock stars are never bothered with ongoing reviews.  They just forge ahead and do it.

George I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your beloved Mother. I know how difficult it must be. My thoughts and heart go out to you in your time of need. Her spirit will be with you always from now on. I hope knowing this will give you some comfort. May she rest in peace.
