Glory be--Bloggers and bears!

bloggers-bears-300x199

This group of bloggers stuffed 51 bears and donated them, along with a fair amount of money from us AND Carnival, to the sick children at St. Jude’s Hospital.  This was certainly a very worthy cause, and a lot of fun.

Zane is third from L on the front row.  Sandee is next to me on the second row, L side.  This photo was taken from the Carnival site that has a nice write-up about the event.  Click here if you want to read more about it:  http://carnival-news.com/2011/03/04/john-heald-bloggers-cruise-participants-donate-1500-to-st-jude-childrens-research-hospital/

So the unpacking is done, and another load of laundry is going.  It is time to tackle the snail mail…after I go get it.  I arrived back at the moho with laryngitis, which is a bit better today.  Smarty pants Dick is not allowed to say how quiet it is around here.  Would he do that?  Only if he got the chance!

We are in Motosat time out.  More like—dial up.  We apparently used more than our ‘fair share’ of bytes last night, so they put us in slow mo penalty box for 24 hours.  Bugger.  The fact that the satellite was UNUSED all week doesn’t count one bit, no sirree.   We’ll survive…and I’ll visit my buds when I can.

Enjoy your Monday!  That’s life in paradise…

My BIG suitcase is just as it was when I rolled into my bedroom last night. I unpacked the smaller one early this morning when the phone started and haven't gotten near it again. Tomorrow is another day! I probably won't get to laundry until the weekend at this rate!

I want to go again, too!

Big hugs :]

Serves you right to be stuck in time out after all the fun you had (although it seems like your lack of use last week should have balanced things out)!

Hope you're feeling better!

Great shot of us with our bears. That was indeed fun. I'm sure glad we got to sit together for this shot.

I hope you get your voice back soon. We are not afflicted with anything yet, but we did sit next to a young man yesterday on the plane that was sick. I hope our flight spray works.

Have a super day honey. Big hugs and tons of love to you both. What a grand time we had. :)
