[FONT="Comic Sans MS"][SIZE="4"][COLOR="Magenta"]:) I found you crazy Summiteers! Figures it would be our group to jump on the new forum first. :rolleyes: Now should we start a new thread, or what?

BTW - Another really old thread, The Dawn Dreamers, was closed as well. I was the one who started that thread, and also the last one to post. :D

How does everybody like our new Home Sweet Home?

Later....[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]

Oink, that's right, you were the first and last to post on the Dawn Dreamers board. That was a very long one as well. Well, as they say, nothing lasts forever. :( Surprising that CC provided us a spot to continue conversing instead of just booting us. What really surprised me was that the Dreamers board got moved to the "Lounge" boards, while the Summiteers stayed all these years on the Roll Call. Could never figure that one out, could you? :D
Yeah, what do we want to call our new thread?

Whenever Madison goes to a party or something at school, Stacy has to bring her own food.

No baked goods from the grocery stores and at Easter she can't have chocolate, only the peeps and jelly beans.

Wow, that is one serious allergy; no chocolate! Poor Madison! But, they do get very creative with the 'peeps' these days. I bought Dylan some chocolate reindeer ones at Christmas and they also have some other different shaped and flavored ones for other holidays. I think orange pumpkin-shaped ones for Halloween. Cute!

I don't know if we should start a new one or not. It would have to contain the name Summiteers and date or how will others find us. Paul and Diane. Or does someone have their email? Anyhow, there smart they will find us.

Becki you are right atleast they didn't give us the boot.

Gary, I had read about that cross-contamination. It's gotta be really scary when you have a child with an allergy like that.

Grace, I'm not sure how this will work with a new thread and stuff. :confused:

[SIZE=3]Hi Summiteers,[/SIZE]

[SIZE=3]So, here we are at our new home. Thank you [B]Gary[/B] for posting this change and the new link on Facebook (brilliant) -- you are da man! :)[/SIZE]

[SIZE=3]I want to check out more about the change. Did we lose all of our history? I know that we sure did have a lot of it ..... good times, bad times and everything in between.[/SIZE]

[SIZE="4"][COLOR="Navy"]Gary - I think ALL the old threads were closed and directed to this forum. Once the others find the forum, it will become a hodge-podge of cruisers from all different threads...I think?! :rolleyes: That's not necessarily a bad thing. I think we should wait a few days to see how many non-Summiteers show up. If it gets too confusing, we'll just start a new thread. :)

Some possible titles:

Summiteers - The Sequel
A Mid-Summiteer's Night Dream
The Peak of the Summiteers
Summiteers or Bust!

Later cruise buds....[/COLOR][/SIZE]

[SIZE=3]Oink, that is quite possible we'll have to wait and see. I'm all for starting a new one if that happens. Some how we need to work in 2004, or '04 etc into the title.[/SIZE]

Yeah, I was wondering the same thing about getting a cross of everybody else's boards. Maybe we are the only group that will stay together thru all of this.

Looks like most of us have found the link already...Paul may show up after a month or two:D

I watched that show last night and if my sibling caved with such a short period of time to go, I'd hurt them REALLY bad. I just wonder if it was all set up.

BUT, I do like your idea of Beau going on the show, winning the $$$ and planning our much-needed reunion .... land or sea!

:D :) :D :)

Wouldn't you know it would be a fight for the first page turn between Gary & Beau:D

Still waiting for the "rest of the story", Beau. Pretty soon you will have to combine it with your next cruise.:D

Glad we aren't cruising this week or next. They are having to change ports on the Oasis and Freedom from Eastern to Western, plus I think they are losing a couple days. Cruise board said the Freedom would be in port on Friday, which is 2 days early. They went to Grand Cayman and Cozumel instead of St. Thomas and St. Maarten.

Just in case, I thought of a few more possibilities:

Summiteers - 2004 & So Much More
2004 Summiteers Magically Reappear
Cheers & Beers for the 2004 Summiteers
It's Clear We're Here to Cheer the Premier of the New 2004 Summiteers!

[SIZE=3]OUT OF THE MOUTHS OF CHILDREN....[/SIZE]
[SIZE=3][/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]So we take Madison to Walmart yesterday after our stop at MaDonalds for a little shopping, You know how girls like to shop. She found some princess stickers, socks with hearts on them, and princess tennis shoes. On our way to the cashier she had to go to the bathroom. Jill went with her as I proceeded to the checkout with our purchases. A couple minutes past by. As the clerk began scanning our items Madison and Nana show up. I asked her if she was done already? Madison with a big grin on her face said "Papa, I didn't have to go poop... it was just GAS!" It cracked everyone up and the cashier could not stop laughing. Too funny[/SIZE]

:cool:[B][FONT=Palatino Linotype][SIZE=3][COLOR=navy]..Good Afternoon, Summiteers...Back to our Story...I'm Stretching my wounded Leg out, drinking my Martini to tone down the agony (Wait a minute, This is Kathie Lee, Don't listen to Beau..He is such a Drama Queen!!)..Just a second! This is Beau, somebody just hit me over the head with a shampoo bottle!!!!...I'm in such pain, but of

course I'm Suffering in Silence, it's just the kind of Man, I am):rolleyes: Flinder and Cortez come down and join us, and when the San Marco Restaurant opens, We weave our way to our table...Since it is Formal night all the tables around us and full for a change, everyone is all dressed up...I don't know, there is something about a full restaurant full of people wearing their Best and having a great time..It just lifts my spirits...:D Tonight's recommended entree is...Mama's Pork Chops..Which Are.."Home style" Double Coated in the bone Pork Chops, Flash Fried a Golden Brown served with Sweet

Marshmallow Potatoes, sauteed String Beans and Zesty spiced Cider and raisin sauce!!..However, Tonight is THE only night on the whole cruise where they are serving Lobster!! Can you guess what we ordered???? If you guessed...LOBSTER!!...You win a Cookie!!!!..Since this is a Celebrity Ship you just don't get Lobster..Instead you get Lobster Melange...Which as all of you know is....Roasted half

Rock lobster with sauteed jumbo Tiger Shrimp with Bay Scallops on a bed of Lobster Risotto with green Asparagus and Herb Salad..This was very good...We all ordered two...Too Full to order dessert..For some reason I have headache...I think I will lie down now[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT][/B]

Yahooo! Beau is back with his review! Thank you, dear Beau, and yes, you did hear us begging. ;) Oh, your poor leg, and I feel your pain, even if Kathie Lee doesn't. :rolleyes: When we were on our Emerald Princess cruise, we went hiking on Dominica. It was a very strenuous hike, and then we went to Titou Gorge. I was just walking along this kind of rocky area and stumbled, and down I went, most ungracefully! :o Well, our guide and several of the others on our tour came a'running to see if I was ok. I was not, but I was so embarrassed, I just wanted everyone to shush. But, once they saw my leg was bleeding, they insisted on calling over one guy in our group who was a Dr. Oh, mannnn! So, our guide gets a first-aid kit from his van, the Dr. cleans up my wound and bandaged it, and everyone except me gets on with their day. I mean, here we hike all this way, across streams and rocks and boulders; up and down steep hillsides, and I only manage to fall once I'm on fairly flat ground. :eek:
Yum, yum, lobster! Love those babies!

[FONT="Comic Sans MS"][SIZE="4"][COLOR="Purple"]:) Lobster? Did somebody say lobster? I love lobster night! :D One cruise on Princess, naturally I ordered the lobster. I told our waiter to keep the lobster coming....not the full dinner, just the lobster tails. He obeyed my orders. :rolleyes: I think I ate 5 or maybe 6 lobster tails that night!! :eek: :p The key is to ignore the rest of the dinner, and only dip about every 3rd bite in the butter. It's the butter that gets you full and causes the crummy tummy.

Trust me: I am the all-knowing Oink afterall, remember?!! ;)

Gary - LOL! Great story. You'll have a book of those by the time she's in middle school. How is Madison since her emergency surgery?

Becki - I had a similar incident hiking down to a waterfall in beautiful, fragrant Grenada. I slipped on a straight, level pathway on the way back and went down like Humpty Dumpty. No blood, but I was covered in mud and horribly embarrassed. I wanted to check out my (Colombian Emeralds) store once back in town, but I was just a mess.

Later cruise peeps.... [/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]

Oink, I love your lobster-eating approach! Makes perfect sense to me. In fact, I rarely use butter at all, but I might try a bit of butter every 3rd bite or so, and see how I like it. ;)

Hello everyone! Hope all is well! I guess if I can find this thread Paul can.

We are going on a cruise in February, but it is a long ways away so I am just sitting here wishing....not wishing summer away - after all, we live in Minnesota! just wishing I was on a cruise instead of having to work tomorrow! Edited by jayzee

Hi Jen, glad you found us.....oh by the way, Happy Birthday tomorrow:)

Beau....how sad the review is coming to an end. Almost time for another cruise so you can start over again. Maybe this time it will be injury free.

Used to love the Lobster night. Now that we eat in the Windjammer, no lobster for us, but I heard that the lobster is now lobster pieces mixed with other seafood....so no big loss.

Watched Take the Money and Run...how stupid are these guys. After only one day in jail, the guy cracks and tells them everything.

Madison is doing much better. She is still scared when her stomach hurts, but we showed her she can eat ice cream without a problem.
