Saturday snuggles's 48 outside...and the heat is on. Now I know this is far better than the weather back in Mayberry, but we are in the land of palm trees!

I'm grateful for a few snuggles here on the couch by my girl.

It is a perfect morning for MM to do a little work outside before we meet Bob and Lynne for lunch. They are only passing through.

Tonight, MM and I are going to a musical show, a James Taylor/Carole King tribute. Oh boy, oh boy!

It's gonna be a great day, and that's a mighty fine thing.

Life is good here in paradise, y'all!

Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday to my handsome boyfriend!

To him, it is just another day...but to all our family, it is a day to celebrate yet another year that we get to enjoy his sense of humor, his generosity, his annoyance (yes, he can be!), his fixing stuff, his wisdom, his love, and his hugs. He's my/our rock here on earth.

Keep on keeping on, Moho Man. We wanna keep you around a whole lot longer. We are confident the next 365 days will be a blast.

Love and hugs from all your Clan!

Oh what a day!

Fifteen years ago:

And now, last week:

What an adventure their lives have been...and will for sure continue to be.

Dad and I are so blessed to have these critters in our crazy clan! They keep us smiling, entertained, confused, loved, and laughing.

Carry on.

We are along for the ride, and love y'all to the moon and beyond!

Hello from WPB!

Alas, we are back at the Moho, with two happy kitties under foot. Literally. They missed us.

There is no turn down service; no waiter in the Main Dining Room; and certainly no chef to be found in this kitchen...unless I assume the position. And the only water we see outside are rain puddles from last night's thunder bumpers. We miss being on the ship. Sigh.

Reality has hit, although I still get to avoid cooking one more night, since Tuesday means Team Awesome and trivia...with dinner.

Speaking of awesome, we sure enjoyed the week of cruising with these two friends. We miss them already.

Life is soggy, but good!

Farewell, San Juan!

Isn't the Main Dining Room lovely? All six of us liked this ship. Our servers were fantastic, taking excellent care of us. Any day on a cruise ship is a good one, right?

So, we six had breakfast together in the Windjammer, got goodbye hugs and kisses...then went to our respective cabins to pick up our bags and head out to the real world.

We were not impressed with the long lines to exit the cruise terminal. They had too few agents on duty, in our humble opinion. Not that they consulted us.

Now we are sitting at the airport awaiting our 1:30 flight to take us back to two kitties, happy we are not traveling to snow clad Mayberry! Brrr...

Forecast for Sunday: laundry!

Life is good, y'all!

Now Grenada

The St Lucia post would post yesterday, so you get two today.

We are just off the ship and found a sports bar that will give out the password for the price of a beer. That works!

The sun is smiling on us, so we will enjoy the scenery and the lovely smell of spices in the air. This is a spice growing island, and I thank them for their many products. I wish I could enclose these smells, but imagine cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg........nice.

Tomorrow is our sea day en route back to San Juan. All good things must end, but the good life will continue.

Wet St Lucia!

It has rained most all day, except for this brief spell:

We gals just enjoyed playing charades. Trivia later. Having fun!

Tomorrow we are in St. George, Grenada tomorrow. 86 here and snow on the ground in Mayberry!

WYWH! The sun is now popping out again...for a few minutes.

Our yacht is waiting...

Hello, sunny St. Thomas! It is 81 and breezy here on our balcony. We are enjoying the water traffic as we finish our coffee.

Our travel companions were taking a ferry to the national park early, but we opted to have a lazy morning. We will go ashore shortly for a walkabout in this lovely port. We have been here many times, but still enjoy coming here.

Our stateroom here on Adventure of the Seas is much like all others. Our balcony is a bit different. The sides are solid metal for strength, and the part below the railing is solid metal as well, so there is only visibility above the railing. The enclosure also limits the breeze, but it is still nice out for us to enjoy the colorful scenery.

The promenade deck is truly lovely. I will take photos and post them, of course. There are a lot of open spaces on this ship, with loads of interesting decorations everywhere.

Incoming seaplane! MM is loving all this floating and flying traffic.

It is elegant night tonight. On super bowl Sunday. What were they thinking?!

Who's gonna win? Do you care?

Juice bar morning

Hello from sunny San Juan!

We dropped our stuff off at the hotel and walked the few short down to the beach, and the gray clouds opened up, dashing our plans to find a local diner for local food.

The hotel restaurant was good but pricey, so our goal this morning was to find that local diner.

We ran upon this juice bar first, so here we sit waiting on an omelette and a stack of banana pancakes. MM is enjoying their free wifi...and ignoring the camera. This is quite an eclectic establishment.

Check out time is 11:00, so we will get a cab to the port and get onboard when able.

Now it is time to chow down on these:

Local coffee will sure get our day kick started!

Life is good...ciao, y'all! Adventure of the Seas is next.

Good morning from the train that takes us to the bus, that takes us to the airport.

Yes, another adventure begins today as MM and I fly to Puerto Rico. Tomorrow, we board a ship that takes us to many interesting ports...all a saint something or other in name.

The weather in WPB is cooling down considerably, so it is a good week to be away. Heck, any week on a cruise is good, right?

Two kitties will miss us. They didn't like seeing the suitcases appear. They will be well loved while we are away.

Life is good, y' cruise at a time.

Hey, Baby!

Today, thirty-something years ago, MM rushed me to the hospital...and we got to take home this little a much smaller form.

Happy, happy birthday to Amy!

Life has never been dull since that day when you arrived.  You have made us laugh, love, cry, wonder...and a zillion other adjectives that are mostly good.  Ha.  Had to say that!  We don't want to give you a "big head."

We love you to the moon and back, baby girl.  Always know that.

Let the celebration continue.  It's Birthday Season...own it!
