Good morning all. Overcast and possibly rain here down the cape. Boat is in the water. We were going to go out for a ride but just to cold and damp.
Good luck on your test Ronnie.
Glad to hear your feeling better shaggy.
Have a great day all and be well

Good Morning!!! Another beautiful day in paradise!!! Marianne managed to walk all of Eagle Beach to AMBR and back and we walked to the Tam for lunch yesterday with no major issues. She is a little sore but she's a real trooper when beach walks are at stake :lol: !!! The island power outage a few days ago is causing havoc at Alhambra Casino. None of the slot machines would accept cash out tickets and the players club card readers at the slots weren't working. I watched the first half of the basketball game while Marianne made the best of a bad situation at the slots. We watched the second half in our room. I actually stayed awake for the whole game. Too bad the Sox are not having much luck recently. Ann, safe travels and see you Saturday!!!
Time for breakfast and another beach walk.
Thoughts and prayers for all those in need.
Have a happy hump day everyone!!!

Good Morning!
Thank you all for the sweet birthday wishes. I had a great day. Played a tennis match, had lunch with my tennis partner, who brought me a birthday balloon and cupcake to my match, had a relaxing afternoon with Ken, then family dinner at my favorite restaurant and had them fam drop me at church to spend the rest of the evening in fellowship with the men from No Longer Bound (the drug rehab I volunteer with) it was a regularly scheduled dinner with them last night. Great to see how the guys I have connected with are doing and check in on them. One really sweet guy I have connected with is the older brother of my niece's best friend. Small world. Drugs do not discriminate! I think why I am so drawn to this group is that they could each be your son, your brother, your dad, your neighbor. All in all, it was a perfect day. Ian surprised me and bought me 2 tickets to a Clemson football game so we could go together. He used his own money and everything. That he has always been a huge FSU fan is even more touching. So we have a date in September....he will be 16 then, time is flying!
Wishing everyone a great day.
Laura, you will be a great lead at the Cat House!
Good Luck, Ronnie. You will do well on your test.
Shaggy, so glad you are feeling better.
Kat, hope Jury Duty goes as smoothly as possible.
Might go back to bed, it is raining hard all day here.

Carolina, it is so true it does not Discriminate. Nancy and I lost our Wonderful Son Kevin at the age of 35 on September 18th 2016. We also volunteer now and I just wanted to thank you for volunteering as well.

Good Morning

Last full day in paradise until Nov. Witnessed a fascinating sun halo yesterday. Hard to capture the true colors with my phone. The sky was a vivid blue with thin rainbow edging the halo.

Thoughts and prayers are with those in need.

Good luck being the lead with the kitties, Laura.

Good luck on the test, Ronnie.

Glad you are feeling better, Shaggy.

Continue thoughts & prayers are with you & Karen, Tom.

Safe travels & enjoy Florida, Pat & Mike.

Good luck with jury duty, Kat. Fortunately, I was not needed when I had mine in April. Hate any part of this civic duty!!

Enjoy your time off, Kelly.

Hope the knee is healing quickly, Tara.

Safe travels tomorrow, Ann. We just miss each other.

morning, rainy day here and i think the rest of the week. during the storm yesterday i had to go out and bring in my new wind spinner, the wind was lifting it out of the ground, didn't need that projecting through the yard.

Kenny's surgery was 3 weeks ago today. there was some concern about internal bleeding. I spoke with the surgeon on monday who said to move up the GI appt but before I could do that it looks like it worked itself out. Seems to have also improved his mental state, he hasn't wanted to see anyone since he's been home and he agreed to have Barb and Marty visit today. he is also eating and moving about more. :D

have a good one all

here's my new spinner, back in place :lol:

Good morning! Just another work day--looks like beautiful weather.

Pat, have a great trip to Florida!

Ronnie, you'll do great.

Kelly, enjoy the rest of the week off work--sorry about the Cavs.

Sorry about YOUR day, Kat. Those are four letter words in my world.


Good morning from Cracker Barrel in Erie. It's not looking good for the Cavs Tara. Even though there's 5 more games left, I don't have a warm fuzzy feeling inside. Even if we end up winning this series, no way we beat Houston or GS.

Pete and Nancy

Pete & Nancy: I am so very sorry for your loss. I can't even imagine what you have been through. Good for you for trying to help others. The leaders in our church for NLB (we have them for dinner twice a month) had twin boys and lost one of them to an overdose. They know they can never get him back but will stop at nothing to help others save their loved ones. Every time I spend time with the guys I grab a HELLO MY NAME IS name tag and write down their names, ages and how long they have been in the program (as NO LONGER BOUND is a very long, in house, Christ based program) I keep those stickers just behind my computer where I am sitting now, just in my eye sight but hidden by my kitchen cabinets. I pray for those various names, as they are adding up now, and just ask God to keep them strong, give them the perseverance they need to make this change and to stick with the program. I know a lot of people think what I do is weird or would make them uncomfortable but I love the time I spend with the guys. I can't really explain it in words, more of a feeling of hope, I guess. Sorry to ramble on. Again, thinking of your whole family, Froggy!

Pete and Nancy, sending lots of hugs and prayers. Carolina, thank you for keeping these brave souls in your prayers and your presence lets them know you care. I don't think it is weird...I think it is a measure of who you are!
