  1. Hi, Remember us!!! A lot has happened since we last spoke. Melonie and I sold our condo on Long Island and now live in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Melonie went to her Employer and told them she was quitting so they transferred her to the Denver ,PA office about 25 miles from our house. I gave my Resume' to a guy from the Fire Department here and he said he would keep an eye open for work, 2 weeks later he called and told me he would create a position for me with his company, I work in York ,PA about 20 miles to the west of our house. MARYLOU, WE LOVE THIS AREA!! Our life has gotten better, slowed down a lot. The food here is great, we live in Amish country and am eating healthier and getting more exercise. People ask why we moved and we tell them it is a better quality of life we were seeking. And found it. We weren't going to cruise for a while but I caved and booked the Carnival Pride out of Baltimore for May 2015. A big hello to everyone, I missed our daily conversations and hope to get on here more. I hope everyone is in good health. Hello to RAY, Falina, Rose, Debbie and Jerry, just to name a few!
  2. Hello everyone. hope this finds you well. Tough day today, 1 year anniversary of Melonie's mom passing. Next week we are going to the great state of Pennsylvania to look at houses in Lancaster. We are booked for Weds and Thurs. Then driving to Bloomsberg to stay with friends for the rest of the weekend. Sorry Marylou we can't meet with you on our way. Doesn't look like we will be cruising for a couple of years, we figured a $4000.00 cruise monies would be better spent on a house. Hope all is well with you all.
  3. Hi everybody, Don't get much chance to get on the computer lately. Having a tough time with the in-laws estate. They didn't have the correct paper work with their wills. We are waiting to clear all the owed monies. 3 months now! the attorney says this is normal bull sh*t. I haven't been able to write a review of Aprils cruise and it doesn't look to promising. MARYLOU, We are seriously thinking of relocating to the Lancaster area in the future, are you near that?? We have friends in the area. We were going to the Oklahoma area but that's out. Gotta run, so hello to everyone. Be well, keep cruising.
  4. Hello all, Got home on Saturday, had a great time. The "Suite Life" was fantastic but we won't do it again. A mini-suite is fine for us. On top of the price, tipping for the Butler, Conciege, and room steward got to be a bit much. We didn't use the butler but felt obligated to tip him at the end of the cruise. Hope to write some sort of review soon.
  5. Good-Bye See ya Bon Voyage Bye Addios Farewell Have a nice day See ya soon Make today special Be well That pretty much covers it. I'll check in when we get home at the end of the month. Thanks for all the well wishes. Hope everyone stays safe. Tim and Melonie
  6. Hello all. First let me say I hope Jackie has a good day today and Friday. I know she probably won't be reading this but she does have our prayers. Rose, I hope your Dad has many many more years with you. We hope for a speedy recovery. Some good news for us for a change, we got the call from the up sell fairy for a penthouse suite and of course we grabbed it. We have never been in one and the perks are amazing. We leave next Thursday the 18th. With all that has happened this past year and this being our 10 year wedding anniversary, it couldn't have come at a better time. 9 days of being pampered, hope we can handle it. LOL!!!! Hope everyone is doing well. I'll check in every once in a while.
  7. Hello all. Thank you for the thoughts and prayers. The family came in yesterday to see Dad. He was unresponsive. It was good for everyone to say their last goodbyes. Dad passed away early this morning around 12:30am. I have been with this family for 11 years and he has been sick for all of them. He is not suffering anymore and has gone to join his wife who passed only 7 months ago, we knew he wouldn't be able to survive without her. Melonie is doing very well considering she lost both parents in 7 months. Thank you for your thoughts. A huge weight has been lifted. We can and will get through this. The cruise next month is still on and after the next 6 weeks it will come at the right time.
  8. Hello all. Very windy and rainy here on Long Island. Could be snow, but it's not. Very bitter-sweet day today. It's my Mothers 89th birthday, God bless her. This is a women who takes no medications and has no health problems. She is a rock. My Father in law was just diagnosed with advanced pancreatic cancer. On top of the COPD and the blood clot in the lung, we are on the edge of our seats to see what happens next. It looks like he will be able to receive hospice like care back in the nursing home instead of a new hospice facility. They give him a couple of months to live, but who really knows. We are waiting on the cruise right now. According to trip insurance we can wait till the day before to cancel. April 18 is close and far away right now. Melonie won't go if her father is in a coma. Either would I for that matter. We can always re-schedule for a later date. Ever since my MIL pasted last July he has been going down hill. He just couldn't survive without her. That should give you an idea as to why I haven't been on this site much. I hope all of you are well, there are to many posts to back to. I do think about all of you all the time, and wish I could check in more. Sorry to lay this on you. But prayer for all of us is appreciated as I do pray for you.

  10. Hello all. Happy Ash Wednesday. We made it through a very tough storm and more white stuff is supposed to hit us tonight. 2 to 5 more inches on top of this, Yippee! Hope everyone is well. We are very busy these days, but counting down the next cruise, 64 days. Will check in when I can.
  11. Good morning all. YEP!!! we are in for a major storm, they say it could be the worst one in a decade. A north storm is hitting a south storm, similar to hurricane sandy. We are supposed to get winds up to 60mph. RAY, rest that hand, it will heal faster. Play with your feet. Tim (FL) where in NY is she staying?? The storm will hit harder further East of NY city. MARYLOU, you should get it at the same time we are, tomorrow in the morning, so keep us informed. Good thing this is happening this weekend, last weekend would have really sucked. Have a great day everyone.
  12. I've only seen 2 day or 1 day CTN. Leave on a Friday come home on a Sunday. They do have a one day but that is such a waste.
