  1. Thanks for our Sunday Daily, Rich and thanks to Vanessa, Dixie, Debbie & Ann. HAPPY FATHER’S DAY to all the Father’s out there whether they be here on earth or in heaven. Great collection of days and I’d be happy to drink Chenin Blanc over today’s vintage 😉. I like the quote - think it is quite true. It looks like it is going to be a beautiful day after the dismal one yesterday. Ivan and I will put in the finishing touches on several planters and hopefully then, all will be done. He wasn’t a happy camper yesterday with the weather. thankfully this is not my fence but it’s a clever idea 😜 @Cruzin Terri I am so sorry to hear you have covid 😞. I hope you can recover quickly and easily 🙏 You really don’t need this on top of everything else 😞 Prayers for those on the Care list, those suffering losses, grief, pain, health problems, worries & those that need them 🙏. Cheers to those celebrating and cruising 🥂
  2. Thanks very much both for the suggestions. Between them all, I’m sure I will find a solution. I’ve had enough boxes unti now between deliveries, etc. I had saved them all rather than recycle them. @ger_77 Gerry wishing Chris a very happy birthday today. @rafinmd Roy, I hope you are feeling improved as the day goes on 🤞
  3. Have a great celebration for your friend’s and DH’s upcoming birthday 🙂 I don’t like your cold’s progress, Sandi 😔. More in your chest is not a good sign. I hope I am not speaking out of turn but…. A visit to the doctor may be in order. You don’t want to end up with pneumonia or bronchitis. Congratulations to your two grandsons! Always a proud moment for any grand parent. 🙂 Thanks. It’s been a long time since I’ve needed boxes and back then both the liquor store and grocery store were really good sources. Appreciate the tip and yes we do have Dollar Stores here. (Slightly different names like the Great Canadian Dollar Store and Dollarama) but the same concept. Appreciate the idea. I refuse to pay for boxes for stuff I am giving away - LOL. @Cruzin Terri Welcome home!
  4. Bon Voyage @Himself!! Have a great cruise and a WONDERFUL time !!!!!!
  5. Thanks for our Saturday Daily, Rich & thanks to Vanessa, Dixie, Ann & Debbie. Great collection of days especially LGTBQ & pay awareness day. I like the quote. The meal sounds good. It would be great with my meal tonight… Father’s Day sale so I couldn’t resist. DD DH and I always had them for that weekend so I decided to keep up the tradition. Rainy day here so I guess it will be more sorting and packing inside as the damn legs and foot permit. I’m running out of boxes - will have to see where I can find some. Liquor store was a bust so maybe the grocery store? I refuse to buy boxes for giving away stuff 😂 😘 Prayers for those on the Care list, those suffering losses, grief, pain, health problems, worries & those that need them. 🙏 Cheers to those celebrating and cruising 🥂
  6. Blessing to her in heaven on her birthday 🙏 Yes they are, Gerry. One thing the deer don’t touch. They are early this year a the peonies are very late. Just starting to show a smidge of a blossom. It’s a very strange season!
  7. I’ll get the November cruise removed for you and glad to see you found a nice replacement cruise 🙂 Happy to add it for you 🙂

  9. This thread has been updated at…… https://boards.cruisecritic.co.uk/topic/3013688-⭐️-⭐️-⭐️-⭐️-holland-america-board’s-future-cruise-listing-updated-friday-june-15th-2024-⭐️-⭐️-⭐️-⭐️/ which is where all posts in the coming week need to go. I will not be reading any more posts here.
  10. HOLLAND AMERICA BOARD'S FUTURE CRUISE LISTING Updated June 14th, 2024 We all love to hear what cruises you are booked on. I post the Bon Voyage threads 7 days before sailing so, to be included in this: Post 3 weeks in advance so you aren’t missed. 1st cruise, anniversary, special celebration? Let us know. Details needed are in the 2nd post of this thread. Please use REPLY and not QUOTE when posting to this thread. Using 'Quote' makes a very long thread and cumbersome to read. Don’t mistake this for a Roll Call. Go to the Roll Call Section here on Cruise Critic to find your cruise & sign up.

  11. Thanks for our TGIF Daily, Rich and thanks to Vanessa, Ann, Debbie & Dixie. Great collection of days. Love chop sue and we do have a family history of my mother’s side of the family which goes back very far 👍 LOL on the quote and yum on the meal suggestion for today. Not sure what the weather holds here today - it was supposed to be sunny and hot but it sure feels like rain is threatening. I have a few “must do” errands this morning and will take it from there. CT scan was done yesterday. it’s a good thing I didn’t know what was involved first 😉 Miss claustrophobic is very glad it is over. Hopefully it doesn’t have to be redone 🤞 Now I wait for the vascular surgeon in 2 weeks. I get why the wait - it takes time to get the CT scan results, apparently. @rafinmd best wishes for today 🙏. Tough day with it also being your DB’s heavenly birthday. @StLouisCruisers i hope your cough clears up soon 🤞 Prayers for those on the Care list, those suffering losses, grief, pain, health problems, worries & those that need them 🙏 Cheers to those celebrating and cruising 🥂
  12. I would try just re-inputting your email. if you happen to have an iPad or iPhone. It’s easy to set up an apple email and amazingly it works better on ships. goo Lucille. Travel these days seems fraught wirh delays and problems.
  13. Perfect timing! Just got home a short hike ago from mine. I would have preferred your version 😘 @Cruzin Terri hope your travels are very safe and smooth 🤞 fishing That’s another painful first, Karen 💔 There’s no special way to do it right or any right thing to do. Just go with what you feel. One day at a time ❤️ Good news that iwent well, Gerry. Wow on your DH’s cardiac device! I hope the clinic has explanations that are satisfactory. Hope the cardiac doctor can help you Annie and that the CT scan helps resolve things. I would have been happy to skip the contrast today 😉 Sorry I missed wishing your DH happy birthday yesterday. Happy belated birthday to Chuck! Wow! What a wonderful inheritance you have in your garden. Impressive that they have been divided and moved over the years. You must have a very green thumb. Peonies don’t like to be moved. I know I was worried when I had to move some of mine and was delightfully surprised when they survived
