  1. Hmmmm Judson, very interesting, and thanks for posting that. I'll have James check his credit account and let you know... Meanwhile, I just posted a batch of pics over on the Daily Dock. It's too time consuming to do it again here, so you're welcome to go over there and check it out! donna
  2. Good Evening Crazies, it's taken me awhile, but I finally got some pics loaded. I'll share some of them with you, taken at the dinner in Miami, and the Sailaway cocktail party on the Connie, and of course, the group photo and gift exchange. Thanks once again to everyone who participated in the gift exchange, I found lots of nice little surprises in my bags when I got home! Howie and I dressed as TWINS! Notice the shoes! DINNER IN MIAMI: THE SAILAWAY PARTY And now, waiting to see YOUR pictures......! donna
  3. Hello Crazies, just a quick note to let you know that the travel-weary Canadians are home at last. Staying over in Miami that one extra day was just too long, then having to stay over again in Halifax because we arrived so late and tired Mon. night...just get me home! Anyway, yesterday I went to pick up the animals (thankfully, BOTH of them, the cat had been caught and is fine) and James went to have his cast taken off. He is relieved to get it off, but now has to endure the pain of his physio exercises for another 6 weeks! Laundry is on the agenda, as is packing away all the summer clothes until next year... Where's that room steward when you need him? donna
  4. Hi Crazies,dinner was fun last night- I guess you can all figure out which one was James in the crowd - the white cast waving from the back row! Weare hanging around the lobby this morning, preparingto take the shuttle to the ship. Look out Connie, here we come! Donna & James
  5. Well, another disaster has befallen us before we even get out of here..... We took the pets to the kennel this morning, and before I even got inside, the cat somehow bolted from her cage and ran off into the woods, hotly pursued by the dog. Of course the dog scared her even farther into the woods, and she disappeared. The kennel owner managed to collar the dog and safely put her in the kennel, but James and I spent almost an hour trekking through the woods and dense underbrush trying to catch the cat. At one point I had her and was trying to make my way back when she freaked and bolted from my arms again. Then she really disappeared. Her is a cat who NEVER shuts up, is ALWAYS meowing for something, but when you NEED her to meow so you can find her, she says NOTHING! WE finally had to give up, before James hurt himself climbing over fallen trees with only 1 arm for support, and before I poked an eye out on the branches. This was rough terrain! The kennel owner and his neighbours assured us they will keep a lookout for her, that it has happened in the past and that the animal always returns for food. Knowing her penchance for eating, I'm sure she will, but it sure was hard leaving, knowing we may never see her again. NOT a good way to start one's vacation.... donna

  7. Morning Crazies, ah, the excitement is in the air - no wait - that's snow flurries! Whatever it is, I'm glad to be getting out of here, even if it is only to Halifax for today! Ray you do remember correctly, there's lots of rolling hills, pretty in colour a few weeks back, but pretty barren by now. However there's also a lot of open spaces and with the winds we've been having, it's hard to hold the car on the road! Cruisetarp, I'm sorry your shopping trip was a bust, but I'm sure you'll make up for it in St. Thomas! All other Crazies going on Connie - seeya in Miami! As for those left behind, remember, I WILL be taking pictures..... donna
  8. Well, my bags are packed, I'm ready to go.... Hmmm, that sounds familiar.... Yup, we're all ready! The little bags of surprises for you all are packed right on top so I don't forget them! All we have left to do is take the animals to the kennel tomorrow morning, settle them in, come home for lunch, put the bags in the car and enjoy a leisurely 2 hour drive to Halifax. I sure hope the weather improves for the drive, because today was just nasty with high winds and heavy rain and sleet, hail, and snow flurries in certain areas. I am going to be SO glad to get to the Caribbean for some warmth and sunshine! Are you all excited now? Only 2 more days left! Can't wait to meet all of you, and I hope I will remember names, or at least online screen names! I don't mind if you call me rollerdonna, or RD for short! But James is James, don't ever call him Jim! Seeya in Miami Crazies! oh yes, and don't forget to bubble wrap yourselves!! donna

  10. Good Evening Crazies, I just had to share this video with you. It's a new Christmas song from the new Christmas album released yesterday by my favourite Canadian artist, Justin Hines. This young man is severely physically handicapped, but he is the most wonderful singer/songwriter I have heard in many years. To get yourself in the Christmas mood.....enjoy!
  11. Update on James: he's seen a couple of doctors and the cast tech and nobody seems to be able to tell him why all the skin is blistering and peeling off the fingers of his cast hand. They have put yet another cast on (4th one!) and unfortunately, it is no longer fibreglass, so he will NOT be able to go in the water as planned. To say he is bummed is an understatement. He is so miserable the poor guy, I really hope that once he's on the ship he will feel a little better! Meanwhile, I am treating his fingers with pure Aloe from the plant, and wrapped them in gauze. Hopefully he will not look like a Mummy by the time we see you on the Connie! donna
  12. Morning Crazies, when I logged on a few minutes ago it was gray and pouring out, now I see the sun struggling to come out, so who knows what kind of day it's going to be? I really hate November, knowing the winter is coming and not much else happening - it's the perfect time for a cruise, and I am getting so excited thinking that we're leaving on the weekend! Can't wait to meet all you Crazies and have a good time aboard the Connie! Mary Lou, safe travels, and see you Sunday! The painting is officially finished! I did the last room yesterday, and today I will decorate it. I'll take some pictures when I'm done and post them sometime later.... James is off to the hospital yet again this morning, his cast is still too tight and causing skin problems, so he's going to have it changed again. I sure hope he's in less pain and more comfortable by the time we sail, 'cuz he's going to be one miserable Crazie if he isn't! donna

  14. Debbie, in regards to you toes and finger nails not matching - who cares? (I'll just laugh at you in the pool....) And as for photos, let me appoint myself Offiical Connie Photographer ( my nickname among family and friends is "Mad Flasher") Just remember, what happens on Connie, may not necessarily stay on Connie..... Unfortunately, those of you at home will have to wait till we get back because I don't have a laptop and therefore no means to post pics until I get home! By the way, I have a question. Does anyone know when and where we will have our little "Trinket Trade" as James calls it, the little inexpensive gifts that we're bringing to each other from our hometown - or whatever... I was wondering if I need to bring them to the Sunday night dinner, or are we having a special Cocktail Party or gathering somewhere onboard?
