Morning, today is Friday for me as I am taking a couple days off to continue sorting mums house, plus need to get baking done as the markets start up next week.
Today should have been our LFD on the island :( . We will get back there one day.

Carolina, that's a lot to have going on, giant hugs & thoughts for the whole family.

Good morning!

Damn Carolina - you and your family sure have a full plate going right now. First of all best wishes to Ken today. Secondly, it must have been hard to hear that your Dad's health and abilities have declined this quickly. Amazing (and scary) how older couples go into "hiding" mode on what's really going on. We saw it with my parents first and we now see it with David's Mom and her SO. She doesn't drive and I have questioned his driving abilities for the past few years, but unfortunately we have no say over any of that - it would be up to his children to take the wheel, so to speak. Sending prayers and a big hug to you today.

Have a nice day, all.

Good Morning.

Partly sunny, 81°, with feels like temp 89°. Came out to pool at 9am. Resort is very quiet for it's size. It's the reason I like 2 weeks in May. Plan to lounge all day by pool or on beach. Should finish my 1st book of trip today.

I was recognized by a long time swamp follower
from MA last evening, while walking thru the Marriott properties. Such a sweetheart!! She needs to "jump in" asap. Hoping to see her and her husband at the Trop tomorrow. (Your son & other family are welcome to come, too.)

Sorry you and your family are faced with so many challenges, Carolina. Thoughts, prayers and hugs are with you all, with added ones for Ken today.

Continued prayers and hugs are with you, Pammy.

Miss catching up with you, Linda. Sorry for all you're dealing with with your MIL. Would love to have a lunch outing with MA & RI monkeys.

Prayers are with others in need.

Good Morning. Mike's off to Buffalo for more consulting work.
I ran a couple errands this morning, tied up some of my loose ends at work, and will run more errands this afternoon before meeting my sister and nephew for dinner.

Carolina - OMGoodness. I know your faith is strong, so hopefully God has a plan to get you through this crazy difficult busy time. More hugs, prayers, and positive vibes for you and your family.

Good Morning!!! We have already started our beach routine!!! We were up early and had breakfast when the buffet opened at 7 and are back from our first beach walk. It was overcast while we were walking and had a few raindrops fall when we were near Lacabana. Lots of changes along Eagle Beach. CDM has their beach back and has a lot of new beach umbrellas with cool wooden bases with a table top with cup holders. Turtles nests are all along the beach. I think I counted eight. We have one right next to the Red Parrot restaurant at the Divi. The sun is shining brightly now with a refreshing breeze and we are staying in the shade on our patio for a while. These white bodies need to be protected for the first few days for sure :lol: !!!
Thoughts and prayers for all those in need today especially Carolina, Ken and their family.
Have a happy hump day everyone!!!

Hi everyone. The sun is out for the 3rd day in a row and it's almost 70° again today. But the rain returns on Friday. :(

Wow, Carolina, you sure have a lot of things on your plate right now. Praying for good results for Ken today and best of luck with your parents. That certainly will be challenging handling their transition to a new location, but with all of you siblings working together, you'll get it done. Hugs and positive vibes to you and your family.

Everyone enjoy the day.
