  1. Spring has FINALLY arrived here in Pennsylvania. I can actually see two daffodils opening out by our tree line. What a welcome sight. The grass is also turning a lovely shade of green. It makes me happy. Didn't think I would see that at all this year Let's try and keep the dock moving next week. I most likely won't be checking in Make today special
  2. As long as I have a closet full of formal wear that still fits, and Jim can still fit in his tux, we will dress for formal night. There sure is no place around here to wear things like that
  3. THURSDAY - APRIL 26th Good morning Crazies. I'm taking a break from packing and cleaning and I'm so happy to see some old friends stopping by here. Jason - the site is looking terrific. Thanks for all your hard work.l I got my hair cut yesterday - so long over due and tomorrow is reserved for mani-pedi .Saturday is reserved for Ash who will be going to her first prom. Waiting for my oxygen supplier to come. We spent a small fortune on a portable rechargeable concentrater and one of the batteries won't hold a charge. Glad I found out now and not on the high seas. Again, welcome back Falina, Ed & Gina Make today special
  4. Ed I have always ordered mine thru Vistaprint.com. I have several
  5. THURSDAY - APRIL 19th Good morning Crazies. A wet day here in Pa. but after today we should hopefully see some sunshine with temps in the low to mid 50's. Compared to what we have had lately that will seem tropical. My eyes actually teared up when I looked out the kitchen window on Tuesday to see it was snowing. Still going thru summer clothes. Why does this take longer to do every year? I just don't have the energy I used to have. Shari - I'm so glad you made the best with the weekend blizzard. The important thing is that you and Marc reaffirmed your love and commitment to each other. Ray - hope all is going well with you. Stop by the dock if you get a chance. It will be nice to have our Panama Canal cruisers back here and sharing their feelings and pictures from their trip. Make today special.
  6. MONDAY - APRIL 16th Good morning Crazies - another week begins It's a cold raw day here in Pa. with lots of rain coming our way. At least we won't have to shovel it. Mother Nature continues to play games with us. We hit the mid 80's on Saturday and high 30's yesterday. Nothing special going on here this week except for the dreaded clothes switch. Definitely not time to put the winter things away though and don't have room for the summer things til that is done. I hope everyone had a good weekend. It was fun watching our Crazies transit thru the Panama Canal yesterday. I hope they are all enjoying Make today special
  7. SATURDAY - APRIL 14th Hi Crazies. I just wanted to wish Shari & Marc a very happy anniversary and send wishes for many more years of happiness. I hope you vow renewals were everything you hoped for and the weather didn't hurt your plans. ?
  8. Jason - thanks for posting the video. That was terrifying.
  9. WEDNESDAY - APRIL 11th Good morning Crazies. I hope the weather cleared for our Crazie cruisers since sail-away yesterday. Seems they left port in a downpour and even had hail on their balconies and were under a tornado watch. Hopefully today will be a bright sunny day. I'm in the process of the dreaded clothes switch to get ready for Bermuda. We have been to so many lovely ports but Bermuda is still my all time favorite. Make today special
  10. SUNDAY - APRIL 8th Good morning Crazies - Just stopping in to wish all the Crazies safe travels and a wonderful cruise. Time for me to go through the summer clothes for our Bermuda cruise.
  11. WEDNESDAY - APRIL 4th Good morning Crazies. I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend. Ours was wonderful. On a rainy, dreary day like today it will be a perfect time to put that ham bone to good use with a nice big pot of pea soup. It's a perfect day for it. Are all the Canal cruisers ready to go? I hope you have a wonderful time and can't wait to hear all about it when you get back. Shari I hope you are doing better and didn't overdo it over Easter. Make today special Crazies. My dryer just went off.
  12. HAPPY EASTER CRAZIES We are off to have brunch with friends and family. Have a blessed day.
  13. Well just for something new (NOT) it is snowing today. That's because I made Jim promise to take me to the Mall today. Like everyone else we are over winter. I thought maybe going out shopping for sandals and capris would lift my spirits. They say it should end around noon. OK Mother Nature you have 20 minutes to knock it off. Andi - If I don't get back before Wednesday I hope you have a great time with Lucas and make lots of memories. As impossible as it sounds, yes, our oldest Granddaughter will turn 18 in June and 10 days later graduate from High School. Between that and her final recital in May I am stocking up on tissues. Then in August she heads from Ct. to Harrisonburg, Va. for College. I just hope before Paige leaves she takes some crash courses in bed making, laundry and cooking. LOL Jan - Glad you were spared that last storm but fortunately 90% of it is gone already. Ray - So glad you survived the crowds in DC, Did you find a place to eat? Miranda - I have a stationary bike and have trouble staying on that. Enjoy your riding time. How far is the ride to work? Shari -- There comes a time when we have to give in and get things done that need fixing. Good luck Well Jim is taking me to the Mall - this should be good for a very quiet afternoon not speaking to each other. lol Make today special
  14. FRIDAY - MARCH 23rd Good morning Crazies. Our (hopefully) last nor'easter has dumped more than a foot of snow on us but fortunately our power stayed on so we were safe and sound - and warm. I'm amazed at the amount of melting that took place since the storm left and we can actually see patches of lawn out back. Now I've just got to see those daffodils and tulips and I will be happy. Ray - I'm so sorry to hear about your kitty. All of our pets become such an important part of our family and it is so hard to say good bye to them. Jan - How did you make out in this LAST storm - with emphasis on the LAST hopefully. Our kids missed 2 more days of school so even they were not happy about that. They already have 4 or 5 days added on to the end of the year. I know Paige & Colin have more than that to make up but they will take that out of their spring break which our kids don't get here. Andi - How I miss Broadway plays. When Jim worked on Wall Street it was a weekly outing for us. You must be getting excited about the Panama Canal cruise. I just loved it when we went and had so many books with me because I thought I would be bored to death. I sure wasn't Shari - I'm hoping your medical issues are a quick solve. Glad you enjoyed your corned beef. I must admit I consider myself a pretty good cook but for some reason I can't get the corned beef - cabbage and potato ratio down. Ran out of corned beef for sandwiches the next day and have been eating the cabbage and potatoes ever since. Any suggestions? Miranda - I hope Spring finally has arrived for you. We are so looking forward to it here in Pa. Time to think about lunch Make today special
  15. WEDNESDAY - MARCH 21st Good morning Crazies. Just getting into our 4th Nor'easter this month with lots of winds and snow on the way. Just praying that power stays on although after our last storm when it didn't work our neighbor took it apart and got it running again. Even the kids are tired of snow days now that they have to make up the time. Paige says she might have to leave for college before she graduates from high school. :-) It sounds like everyone is doing well. Ray you seem busier than ever. I'm sure everyone is looking forward to your group cruise. Perhaps some day I will get there again. I'm just looking forward to some Bermuda sunshine but must admit taking care of all my medical needs is becoming a hassle. It will all work out I am sure. I'm sure I can find a junk drawer or sock drawer to organize today. Stay safe everyone in the path of this storm. Make today special
  16. FRIDAY - MARCH 16th Hello Crazies. Thanks for the nice welcome back. Some days it is just too hard to get to my desk to post but I'll try my best. Really looking forward to our late April Summit cruise but still keeping my fingers crossed for that one. So many things to think about and plan for. It does give me something to work for though. So glad you are all doing well. Jan this winter stinks and apparently it is not over yet. I need tulips and daffodils sticking their noses up through the frozen ground. You all must be excited about your Panama Canal cruise. I must admit I was not at all excited but loved every minute of it. Time to put my feet up and relax Make today special
  17. Hello Crazies. I know it has been a loooong time but I do occasionally lurk to see how you are doing. It's been a really rough year health wise for me but I'm still here and hope to become a little more active here but can't promise every day. It sounds like everyone is doing OK and I hope the upgrades Jason has done will bring back some old friends and new posters. It's been a rough winter here in Pa. with b2b Nor'Esters and more to come. Since I can't go out if the temp is too low or the wind it too high I am basically house bound but know spring is coming and before long I will be sitting out on my deck. I can't wait. Will check in when I can and miss you all.
  18. HAPPY EASTER CRAZIES. Wish I had the time or energy to post more often but hopefully better days are coming. I do try to catch up with the dock when I can. Wishing you all a day full of love, peace and happiness
  19. WEDNESDAY - MARCH 1, 2017 Good morning Crazies. Well as you can see I am still keeping crazy hours here on my slow road to recovery. Things are progressing slowly and I do check in on occasion but just have nothing to chat about unless it was my exciting adventure to the grocery store to grab a scooter and see how many in aisle displays I can take down (0 so far) For those that practice, have a blessed Lent and also a Happy St. Patrick's day. Hopefully this month I will be back. I hope everyone is doing well
  20. Good morning Crazies. Just a quick check in before my next nap. This is getting old really fast. Saw both Doctors this week and although they are pleased with progress so far both agreed I have 6 - 8 weeks of recovery ahead of me before I can even think of rehab. I have found that although I was an excellent patient in the hospital my patience is wearing very thin here in the house. I'll check in when I can and hope you are all doing well Ray & Yuki - have a wonderful cruise Jan - If there is any way you can get hubby into a scooter.....do it. It made such a difference in my energy levels and even the dr, thought if I picked up this bug a week earlier and I was weakened from all the walking on the ship and in ports that outcome could have been way different.
  21. Thank you for all your kind prayers and good wishes. They mean more than you know. Unfortunately my peak time seems to be between 2:00 / 2:30 AM and I'm not very chatty then. Plus if I try to get out of bed Jim jumps up and scares the daylights out of me
  22. MONDAY - FEBRUARY 20th Good morning Crazies from my beautiful home. They finally sprang me late yesterday but most likely will not be around here much. It's just too exhausting and I have a long road ahead of me. I'm ready for a nap just sitting here for 5 minutes. Thanks for all your good wishes and prayers. Truthfully I scared myself to death this time. I never had anything hit so hard and so fast so will be extra cautious for a bit. I will check in when I can but probably won't be posting much MAKE TODAY SPECIAL
  23. THURSDAY - FEBRUARY 9th Good morning Crazies. Just stopping by to say hi before my power goes off. Lights have been flickering for more than 2 hours already so I think it is inevitable. Expecting more than a foot of the while stuff. They started closing schools at 5PM last night - 8 hours before the first flake hit the ground. Of course our school district waiting til about 3AM before announcing the closure. That way they would be sure to awaken everone with their robo calls. Laundry is finally done but luggage is still in the living room and all the extra cruise things need to be packed away so that should keep us busy. Jan - Hope you are doing OK. Stay in and stay safe Ray - Same to you.
  24. Sorry Crazies. Just swamped today getting ready for "significant" snow tomorrow. It's really so quiet here there is not much to chat about. Back to load (?) of laundry. I've lost count. I do see the floor of the laundry room though so tomorrow should finish it up. Hope all are doing well.
