Got home yesterday around 2:30 (it was a 8 night cruise). Weather was perfect on the cruise and the seas were flat. We had lots of fun, and the ports were great. Home today getting caught up on homework, housework and pet-loving. My management class is a little more intense than I would like, so takes a little more time than I had anticipated. I have a dentist appointment at 4:30; takes 6 months to get a cleaning appt, but they will look at money making stuff (I have a chipped tooth, have had it for a couple of years) in less than a month. Haven't had a chance to even look at the other board. Carnival Liberty was a nice ship, just like the Mariner layout better...our next cruise is December...made final payment today.
We visited Puerto Rico, St. Thomas, Antigua, Tortola and Bahamas-Nassau.

Well, better get ready for the dentist.

Morning..........

So how did you make out at the dentist,PQ?? I know I am due for a cleaning,but seems every time I go, they find work that needs to be done and costs a small fortune........

Pretty good you get off a ship ,in time to make final payment for another!!

Never been to Tortola....how was it??


Ruttie.....thinking of ya!!

Dentist - Great visit. He looked at the chip, said it didn't need a cap, but could be bonded and he beveled the tooth next to it (cap done 17-20 yrs ago, fell at Disneyland and broke my front tooth, long story) so they were the same length. Didn't take payment, will bill insurance first than send me the bill for the balance. The last dentist gave me the run-around and how much it would cost, time, etc. What a scam.

Tortola was great, just not a shopping stop. The roads are very, very steep, even more so than st. Thomas. We just went to Cane's Garden Beach and paid for a couple of chaise lounges. Gary stayed in the water the whole time. Vendors do not walk the beach, so it's pretty peaceful. Food and drink available along w/restrooms and pay showers. Even had a massage canopy ($30 dollars/20 minutes), it was excellent. A lot of people go over to Virgin Gorda to the Bath's which are supposed to be gorgeous, but we were only there until 3, so wanted to stay on Tortola.

Thanks for keeping us posted on Ruttie

Ruttie - Good luck, you're in my thoughts.

My dentist is Dr. Anker, he's over in the plaza by McDonald's, where that new coffee place is. He's what's covered by my insurance, but I definitely like him. Don't you go to Dr. Spivey? I had him when he was the dentist at Coast Dental, after he left, Coast was horrible and I quit going. Dr Spivey was great.

I went to WW, gained 3 pounds since my last visit (2 weeks ago, 1 cruise ago Laughing ) My sister is down just over 20 lbs, but she is better about exercising. She's a food service worker (Knoxville, TN) and gets off at 2:30, she has time to walk 2-3 miles every other day and does her eclipical the other days. But, she also doesn't cook dinner for her husband and daughter, just makes a little something. My problem is time for exercising (I need to make some) and watching what I eat, portion wise, when I cook dinner.

May take Brandy to the dog park tomorrow, depends on the weather.

I have 11 weeks until the next cruise. I roasted a turkey breast and made all the trimmings (mashed potatoes, rolls, gravy and dressing). Yummy...went to Sam's today, first time in a while, and stocked up on stuff. Need to freeze the meat in our size servings. Just relaxing and watching the gator lose b ad to Auburn. Trying to do some research for the December cruise. For the May cruise, will probably book the Comfort Inn as a back up, but trying for the Caribe or Marriott (resorts) thru priceline. Most of the priceline wins have been for stays in the current month, but doesn't hurt to try.

We are going down the day before, I guess I'll keep checking websites. I'd love to stay at the beach, that way Gary gets into vacation mode early, but downtown would be my next choice. I want to try to keep it under $150; by the time they add taxes it's at $175. Trying to figure out if we want to try to buy wine and champagne there, take the box partial filled with us (50 lb limit) or just buy the wine on board. Carnival doesn't have a wine plan, so it's as you go.
We have the windows open also and it feels so good. Took Brandy to the dog park around 9, it was quiet. Just planted some more tomatoes and hot peppers.
Turkey dinner was good.

Sorry, I've been MIA...school takes up a lot of time. I've been able to read posts, just didn't have time to post.

I was wondering where Beary's been. I'll go check out the florida board.

No coupon book on carnival like rccl (but I only used the drink coupon/photo coupon). I know they have VIP boarding, but no concierge lounge or that type of perks. Also, no perks for booking on board. So I guess, no perks except past guest party.

Well, Gary's coming in with the BBQ pork chops (also having salad, artichoke and red roasted potatoes), so better go to dinner. Will check out the other threads.

We also use McCalls. We tried to do it ourself also, and last September Gary finally called them and they looked at the lawn and told him what he needed to do. We had white flies and cinchbugs. They do a good job, and whenever we have problems we call the. We use them for our lawn, our pests and our termite coverage. Last year, Brandy and Clarence had a bad time with fleas, no matter what I used. This year, not a flea to be found. Gary did the same thing, but it just takes a professional to attack the problem. I don't think the over-the-counter stuff works.

Doing school work this weekend, as time permits, as I have two reports due in the next couple of weeks. WW in the morning and a partylite (candles) party at 10:30. Tomorrow night meeting with the Ocala bunch to look at all the cruise pictures and watch the game. They are a great group and lots of fun. Funny, how small this town is. Kristyne, who was a student worker and know at UF, is the daughter of one of the group. She's also a puppy nanny for us. A couple of the group work for the school district (teacher and JV football coach), another for the property appraisers office. And, they all like to cruise.

Sunday should be quiet. Yah....well, that just means I can work on my papers.

Morning.........

We,too are going to use them for pest control...........right now,we have FL Pest Control for the house.Used to have them for the yard too,but they killed the front yard..granted,the yard was not sod......it was a mishmash(?) of grass seed,sod weeds........But it was all green!! They used weed control and then we had lots of bare spots.........so we fired them for that part of the service........

Told McCalls not to use weed stuff on the front yard,but just for the back since its sod there..........eventually, we would like to sod the front but since we dont have a sprinkler system out there,it would be a waste...........and actually,all the plugs are taking off........you know how sod spreads!!


Sounds like a fun day for you today.........

Wish we had someone we could trust to watch the dogs.....but till we do,its off to the kennel for them....and at the rate of almost $40 a day avg,it costs us a small fortune for a week........oh, well, I know they are taken care of...

Later!!

We don't pay Anthony, but we do pay Kristyne as she's a "starving student." And our animals get to be safe at home.

Went to WW (-2.4 lbs), candle party (purchased a few things) and now just relaxing. I made a taco bake (on pillsbury's website) that you make ahead, refrigerate and finish cooking 30 minutes before serving. Should be doing school work, but heck, I've been working all week. So going to check the boards and ebay.

Took me a couple of days, but I'm back. Wonder if San will show up here, or if it will be just us. Smile

I could always ask Kristyne. The problem/issue now is she lives in Gainesville and goes to UF. So, she can only do it when she is not in school. Christmas works for us, since UF closes for break the first week of December. Her boyfriend is studying to be a Veternarian and is on the waiting list at UF to get into their vet school. So it's kind of getting 2 for 1.

Last night had sirloin tip roast, potatoes and gravy, and green salad....tonight was Turkey Marsala, fettuccine and green salad.

Well, back to my school work, doing a career activity. Did a career assessment and now have to report on the results - one of my career matches was a Machinist. I wouldn't have any fingers left! Laughing

Nice to see it's just not PH and me any more Smile

I would love to do a cruise through Alaska...trying to convince my dad to take us on one. He just moved from Olympia, WA to Portland, Or, but that is still only about 4-5 hours south of Seattle. He keeps saying he'd like to do a cruise with us, I told him if he paid, we'd fly out there. Maybe, one day it'll work.

Just working on homework. Sorry I couldn't help you out with the puppy hotel. Tonight, went to the kids for dinner...Danny barbequed some steaks and we had maple carrots and red potatos... yummy.

Haven't heard too much from Beary since she posted the invitation...it's been a real long time since Vic showed up too. Hope they stay hidden.
