Happy Saturday Crazies,

Only 5 more days until some of us meet up! I Can't wait.

The heatwave is finally gone and not coming back anytime soon. So I hope. Temperatures are pretty comfortable and there's an occassional shower. No prob.  And yes Jan, I'm so  happy to have that AC. Wow it really helped me sleep all right. Anyone knows what the weather for our Cruise is gonna be?

Ed, so good to hear from you, but I'm so sorry to hear about your knee trouble. I so hope it will turn out fine and I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. 

Ray I hope you're doing fine! That goes for you too Jackie and for all  other crazies out there.

Shari I'm thinking of you too!

Have a great weekend everyone,

Miranda

GM Crazies,

It has been awhile since I posted.  Retired last July, new granddaughter in July 2019, traveled a bit and now I have booked a cruise with my youngest adult daughter for Nov. 2020.  Going on the NCL Escape to Western Caribbean.  This will be her first and my third cruise.

Hope everyone is well.  Have a great weekend!!

Hi Everyone, 

I've pulled out the bags and started piling things on the table to pack. We've got our medallions and lanyards, printed out boarding passes (just in case), and have our itinerary all laid out. I downloaded all the Ocean Apps - Ocean View, Play Ocean, Ocean Now, Ocean Casino, though I can't see why I would even use most of them, except for Ocean Now. Placing a drink order from anywhere on the ship when I'm in the mood seems like a win-win to me!😄 Hired a ride to Boston for the flight to QC on Wednesday, as I couldn't in good conscious ask family members to bring us at 4:30 am.😁 

Andi - David and I hope to meet you at the Frontenac hotel bar when you arrive on Wednesday; think we'll be taking a taxi to the hotel from the airport. 

Miranda - we'll see you on board Friday, the 9th! 

Falina - Great to see you on the Dock. Congratulations on your cruise booking!

Have a great weekend!

Happy August, Crazies!   We had a nice time at Ravinia on Thursday night:  the CSO playing Beethoven's 5th and Brahm's 1st.  Lovely evening with fabulous music!  Today is our 45th wedding anniversary - my how time flies, lol!  We are spending the day as usual, but do have a nice dinner planned at Cooper's Hawk Winery.  We had a brief respite from the heat/humidity but it is building back up again.  But just a few days of it for us, since we will board our flight to Quebec City on Wednesday.  And it looks like the weather there will be none to warm but plenty of rain!

Jan - YES - I will text/call you when we arrive if we don't see you at the bar. Our flight gets in at 4:30 and we will also probably taxi to the hotel.....so probably by 5:30 or so I'm thinking?   And I am doing exactly what you are doing at the moment...getting my documents in order and trying to figure out the clothes.  Since the weather looks rather iffy - I guess I will pack everything I own!  Long sleeve, short sleeve, sleeveless, jackets, pants, shorts.......aaagh!

Miranda - Glad your heatwave broke.  I don't think we'll have to worry about that on our cruise, from what I am seeing.......  Can't wait to see you on the 9th - safe travels!

Falina - So nice to hear from  you - please don't be a stranger!

Ray....Jackie.....please just check in to let us know you are all okay?!

Have a great weekend, Crazies

Andi - I absolutely hate packing. I've got stuff piled on the table, my list is partially checked off, and I just want someone else to take over the chore.😄

Happy Anniversary! Our anniversary is Tuesday - we'll toast to ourselves at the hotel when you arrive on Wednesday! 

Talk to you Wednesday!

Ed (the Skipper) - 

I must have been away when you posted here on the Dock. How nice to see you on the Dock, but so sorry about your knee problems and all the trouble you're having. I had one replaced going on 4 years ago and fortunately did great with it, and even with a few falls am lucky that I didn't mess it up. I hope the docs can find some help for you so you can get back on board! 77 cruises in 85 years - that's almost one for every year of your life - that is simply AMAZING! 

Take care of yourself and keep us posted!

Hey there Crazies

Well my last workday is done. YAY!!!!!!! Only two more days until I see you guys, can't wait.

And you know I always say that I like to be surprised onboard, you know familiar people sailing the same cruise without me knowing. Cause I also like to surprise people. I still hope someday that will work out. But yesterday I found out there is gonna be a surprise for me. Every week I send my 'cruise friends' a Happy weekend email. Lynedah from Vancouver used to send some of them to a friend, Shamira (a.k.a. Sam). So she asked me if I wanted to add her to the list. I really loved that, so of course. And now she is gonna be on board too. So after a couple of years, we finally meet in person. How amazing is that? So before I know it, I know everyone on board 🤣. I just wanted to share this. Maybe we can get her to join CC as well. Would be nice. 

Falina, congrats on your retirement. You go and enoy yourself! 

Have a great day Crazies,

Miranda

Most of the gang is in Quebec now and I'm about to go to sleep, cause I will be picked up at 4.45 AM, for Pete's sake. But it's for a very good cause. Hope some of you will keep the Dock going, cause nothing going on right now. 

Another Crazie who just recently joined CC is gonna be on board as well. I hope we will meet. 

Hope you're all doing fine. Talk to you after the cruise.

Miranda
