Jul, sorry for your lose. Last minute travel plans are difficult, but hopefully it will all come together. I remember when my Mom passed away. My sister in Florida called me at 7:00 Sunday morning and I was on a plane by 12:30 that afternoon! YIKES! Don't really know how I pulled that off, but it worked.

It is so tragic when a young person passes. Hugs, kisses and prayers your way.

Sheila, I just sent you an email. Prices for those two cruises are way out of sight. A D1 is more than what we paid for our GS on Splendour.............and that's not including air!!

OK, I know I can't keep up with you all on your cruises, but what one are you investigating now??? I CAN NOT WAIT until Ray and I have the time to do all the traveling you all manage to fit into your lives. Did I say I CANNOT WAIT? Oh, yeah I did!

Our friend June from Australia (she was on the Polar Bear Express) is trying to talk us into doing a b2b on Rhapsody in Feb of 2010. One is from Sydney to Perth (the upper half of Australia) and then the second would be Perth back to Sydney but also sails around NZ. Total of 35 days. Absolutely amazing itineraries, since we have been to Australia and NZ twice. Of course, prices back in 2001 and 2002 were a lot cheaper..............as was airfare.

The airfare alone for 2 would probably be the cost of one cruise fare on either itinerary. Shocked

Thank u all for your thoughts and prayers.

David flew to Florida tonight and I'll leave in am. I was too over stressed trying to get ready for the weekend at the store and had a ton of freight to get worked up. So decided to not stress and fly a day later.

We don't know any other info yet......will hopefully find out something tomorrow.

I have no idea how long we're gone, whether we are flying to chgo after to work or what so I think I packed my whole closet!!!

Have a good week everyone......thanks again.....

Jul safe travel to you.

Just noticed we flipped again. Wonder if this is a record for CF.

We just got back from an evening of dessert and fireworks at friends of the kids around the corner. It was so nice of them to invite us. Peyton had a good time with kids she knew. Not so much the fireworks, they scared her.

Good morning all--do hope you had a great Holiday.

Sheila--what nice friends of your kids to think about you.

Headed out early this am to get aunt and uncle moved into assisted living. This will be a good thing for them but I suspect difficult, they have lived in the same house they built in the country for over 50 years.

Good Afternoon Ladies,

Took Diane & John to the airport this morning and they should be halfway home by now...We had a wonderful time last night watching fireworks from several of the surrounding Towns and private ones on the beach..Diane said she had never seen such wonderful fireworks...The air was cool (breezy on the roof) which is another first since it is usually humid this time of year...
After going out for dinner most of this week, we are going to relax tonight and, I will make grilled salmon for dinner...Will check in Later, Jill

Julie & David so sorry to hear about your niece.

We are home safe and sound, flight was uneventful as usual. Isn't that the way you want it to be? We had a fabulous time. Dave and Jill were the best hosts and we saw everything on the west coast of Florida. And, as Jill said the fireworks for the 4th were fantastic. Caught up with the mail last evening and doing laundry now. Will need to go for a few groceries at some point but just kind of getting back into the groove.

Will check back in later.

D--welcome home, glad you enjoyed our other part of the world

Sheila--we have been thinking about you a lot this week, you will welcome your return to normal activities. Travel safely tomorrow.

Jul--keep us updated, so sorry that you have to go through this sad time.

Morning all! Another beautiful day here, although it is supposed to finally get "hot" later today. But right now there is a wonderful breeze blowing thru, keeping things cool.

The wedding last night was absolutely fabulous! It was at a private mansion set in a wooded cove. The ceremony was outside (it did get a little hot in the sun!) and the beautiful bride arrived in a horse drawn carriage. All the male participants of the wedding party were in kilts (except for the bride's father) and the bag piper lead the procession. It was a lot of fun. The groom's family and friends from Scotland put on a nice folk dance show for the grooms' dance with his mom. My feet hurt from dancing and I'm a little hung over, today but it was worth it. Now I'm going out to clean the pool and just crash and enjoy the sun!

Jul, take care of your family. I'm sure there will be some difficult times this week.

Susan your account of the wedding made me home sick. Do you remember what the folk dance was?

We did a lot of those at my wedding. Glad you enjoyed it. It's very nice in Bourbonnais today as well.
We see where there is to be bad weather tomorrow night. I hope it doesn't delay our departure.

Good Afternoon Ladies,

Taking it easy as I put my back out again yesterday. Borrowed a muscle relaxer pill from son and it did help some.

Was wondering if any of you have done a excursion that involved dolphins? I would like to do one through the ship as I will be going alone. Liz and family will be doing something else. As long as my back is not acting up so that I can walk and sit do you know if the dolphin excursion would be alright?

Sheila, they did not tell us the name, but it kind of looked a little like the texas 2 step. The groom kept spinning his mom under his arm, it was so cool. Then after about 2 minutes, all the rest of the Scot clan joined in and the dance floor was full of kilts.

Oh, yeah, I forgot to mention this part.... I know McHenry is hardly cosmopolitan, but the other unusual things was that all the Scottish women had feather hats on! Not really hats that had any form to them, but little ribbony type things with feathers sticking out all over. I wasn't sure if this was a wedding tradition, like wearing a hat, or whether it was a current fashion trend! Anyway, it was cool looking, but I don't see me going out to buy one!
