The fires out here yesterday were fairly close by but far enough away not to have to evacuate. Many of my friends and family live very near the areas affected. One of the major freeways was shut down so traffic all around was horrific. Was suppose to meet my brother and sister in law for dinner ad they actually live closer to the fire area. I got to the restaurant fine but their GPS said it would take them about 1 hour and 15 minutes to go about 8 miles. We decided to wait until tonight and see how things were today.
So many homes both in S. CA and N. CA have been lost. Feel so sorry for all these people. The wind has died down but so much devastation done already. Those fires go so fast when the high winds blow.

Amazing Ann. Just like our neighbor who lives across the street from our house. Today was the first time she heard from her Mother who lives in Puerto Rico since the hurricane. And last night I heard from my 9 year old Granddaughter who sand Happy Birthday to me. Not a bad present from her.

That must have been a huge relief for your neighbor to finally hear from her Mom. Not knowing if she was OK all this time had to be so stressful. Happy to hear that they are finally getting some communication lines back in working order.

Good evening fellow Emerald Alum. Holli got some good news yesterday at a post surgery appointment. The surgeon told us all of the cultures came back negative so she doesn't have an infection. We will decide in December if she will have the second surgery for the reverse replacement or go with what she has now. In any case, we will make our final decision then on whether or not we will be able to sail or have to cancel.....

Bob, great news about Holli. Sounds like everything is working good.

Back to work today. A couple more weeks and I'm off for 11 weeks. I must have earned a lot of vacation time.

Well, you can tell Marylou and her twin sister Gerry are heading to Ireland. Another tropical storm , Ophelia, is forming in the Atlantic and might head up toward Ireland.

Thanks for the positive thoughts. If she has the second surgery, it will be after Christmas in early January. In that case we would definitely have to cancel April. If she elects to keep the spacer, there is stil a chance we can sail, but if it were up to me I'd cancel so she could heal more completely....

I'm pretty sure you are correct. But I needed time off for our cruise and I thought I would add some other things to it.

Let;s hope that the storm stays out of the way and does not affect the trip for Mary Lou and her sister.
Bet she is really getting so many things together now. So Burger King is your idea of a fast meal. I think for all you have taken and given at the Racino, that you could eat there every day for free.

No, Bob, it will be an empty plate. Off to the casino today and this afternoon our oldest Grandson is coming over to do some plumbing work here before I take him and his brother bowling tonight. Now that's a full plate.

Hi all!

Hope all is well with you & yours & the fires keep away from you Ann

Bob ~ good news about Holli.

Grandpaul ~ my DH is baching it too but doesn't have lots of options here in the country. I do leave him some frozen leftovers so he doesn't have to cook too much.

I'm all packed & just have to weigh the bag. Of course the printer's out of ink so I can't print the boarding pass but will try it later at the airport hotel.

TTFN

I hear Marylou rolling her luggage around. She gets to Florida around 4 PM and heads to Ireland on Sunday. There's a group of over 30 people. I'll have to find something to do.
