Good morning.

Thank you for the Daily Report.  Love the map. 🙂

I'll get out my camera and take some pictures.  I'll hug my hubby and send you a virtual hug.🤗

It's going to be hot today.  The soup sounds interesting, but I'll save that suggestion for another day.  Of course, I'll check out the wine. 😉

It's another week, hope it's a good one.  Stay healthy.

Good  morning and thank you for the daily Rich.  Virtual hugs to everyone.  Miss the real ones from friends and family.  Will skip the menu, not fond of chic peas.

Thank you Rich for the Daily report.

 

Love the map.

 

Already gave DH a hug when we got up this morning.  Have to see if there are some flowers that I can take a picture of tday.

 

Happy Birthday Micky Arison.

 

Have a doctor's appointment late this afternoon so not sure what I will throw together for dinner.

Thank you for today’s Daily, Rich! Morning Dailyites & my CC Sisters!  Hope you are all well! Denise, hoping you are enjoying Big Sur & your Pacific Coast trip.

 

Love the maps, especially the one showing the Amsterdam & Veendam’s passing one another, less than an inch apart!

 

Hugs to all - even if only virtual ones. I now only have a camera on my phone, but it goes everywhere with me, so I am always prepared.

 

The quote is interesting, but lately I find that I will happily settle for the facts.  Meal & wine sound great, but I might search for a cold soup recipe for tonight. Another hazy, hot, humid and dusty day here in Florida.

 

Stay well everyone!

Good morning Rich. Thank you for the Daily (and thanks for your help)

Hi CC sisters, Roy, kazu, KK, and fellow Daily-ites!

Happy Birthday Micky.

 

Hugs are really needed right now, so sending hugs to all. Put your right hand on your left shoulder and left hand on your right shoulder and shake. There's my hug to you!

 

Going to get our Texas drivers license today if they are open. Here's a word of advice: Take your important papers (military, VA, etc) with you when you move. Don't pack them in a moving unit! 

 

Have a safe and happy day. Count your blessings!

Good morning, thanks for the Daily!  Happy Birthday Micky - stay well.

 

I have spent a lot of time lately looking for our camera - a small red Canon, which I haven't used for a couple of years.  I thought I'd resurrect it, but haven't been able to locate it, so will continue using my phone, iPod, and my 360 degree Ricoh Theta.  Sending virtual hugs to everyone here; I think we can all use an extra hug or two every day.  @Seasick Sailor Great description; I'm shakin' all over! 

 

Not a fan of chickpea soup, so will be content clearing out the leftovers of the past couple of days for dinner tonight.  And wine.

 

Smooth Sailing! 🙂🙂🙂

Thanks for the daily.  Love the maps, a great addition.    The soup sounds excellent!   By chance I put a pot of dried chickpeas on the stove just 10 minutes ago.  This works for me!

Thanks for the daily Rich.  There hasn't  been any physical hugs for a long time and there won't be anytime soon 😢.  As for the camera - several of those, one always at the ready for planned and unplanned photo ops.  Will take a pass on the meal suggestion.  Have a great day everyone, stay safe and healthy.

Good morning,

   Looks as if the Veendam is going  on a mystery cruise.  Always nice to see where the fleet is.   

   Has been raining here since yesterday and left several inches which we needed badly.  Waiting to see what the totals are.  The grass just in the last 24 hours looks so much better.

   Took a picture just this morning of a big, black dual winged dragon fly on the screen.  Will down load it later on to see if it was visible as the screen was the same color.

   Seasick Sailor--hope your moving crate is on its way to you

   Happy birthday, Micky Arison

Good morning, and hugs to all, very distantly!    Thanks for The Daily, Rich.  We don't get a newspaper on Mondays, so it is nice to get some news about the ships, and other tidbits of information.

 

Wednesday will be Canada Day, and usually we have family over for a barbecue, but I think this year will be very quiet.   I'm getting a bit antsy about all this!  Will it ever end?

I know how you feel, but at least we are doing fairly well at this stage. And many of us are safe and healthy 😄   I don’t think we will see the old “normal” for a while, I’m sorry to say.  I suspect this will be the “new normal” for a while.

 

By the way, I  went to the periodontist today and it was some adventure with the precautions they are taking.  They’ve put out a pile of money to make the office, them and us safe.

I would normally be celebrating Canada Day at least a little bit but this year with a colonoscopy prep there won't be much celebrating.  I have special memories when I was on a tour with a Canadian based tour group that started in Inuvik and bussed down to Skagway and then the Zaandam to Vancouver.  I was the only American in the group and enjoyed their Canada Day hospitality in Whitehorse and then got to act as a bit of host July 4 in Ketchikan.

Rich, thanks for the DAILY  I like your wine suggestion for today.  Hugging violates "social distancing."         Social distancing is anti social.  I survived the frog legs!  Have a great rest of the day.

Good evening. Thanks for the Daily, Rich. I love the map! 

 

We've had a busy day today. I had to drive 2 hours to Toronto for DD to take her Music Therapy Board Exam to be accredited in both Canada and the US. Because we had a loooong stand still the last time we drove, we went early today....and of course it was smooth sailing, which would have been okay had there been a restaurant available to go in, eat, and cool down. Stage 2 opening doesn't allow it, so drive through and it in the car it was. Soooo hot. Basically, I'm wiped. I bought a roast chicken at the grocery, and I think that if I have a glass of wine, I will fall asleep right now.

 

Virtual hugs and happy thoughts to everyone. Stay safe!

Thanks Rich. Hi to all. I think I’m basically packed. I’m going to Washington to visit sister. I’m bringing my trailer so easy to social distance. My dog gets all my real hugs right now.

Thanks for the daily report.

 

No new covid-19 cases here today, so total remains at 22,  one person in hospital, the rest all in managed isolation. They are all people returning home to NZ.
