I took my mom’s recycling down for her, and I was rewarded with an amazing sunset.

It just got better the further down the laneway I went.

The finale; the neighbour’s field had a pond of melted snow. The wind is so strong the pond had wavelets.  Wonderful end to the day.

One of my sons went to / graduated from Boston College. Does that count for something New Englandy? 😉

 

Yes!  That's wicked pissah!  

 

Andrew, gorgeous photos, as usual.  One day, we'll be able to travel again, I can't wait to see you and Lisa again.  LOL, I accidentally wrote you and Lucy.  Nutmeg killed a mouse a few months ago and was thoughtful enough to leave it in front of my chair where she knew I'd see it first thing in the morning.  Thank God she didn't put it IN my chair!  Can you imagine me running around the house with a dead mouse stuck in the crack of my a$$!  🤪

Well..435 pages later I would like to raise my hand and join. I have stalked this page since the beginning, so thank you all for you regular days. I am Leanna. I live in the middle of nowhere Kansas and cannot wait for a cruise. I had 3 cruises cancelled, one of which was a bucket list. Oh well! We have now rebooked for March 2022  and august 2022. 

 

@A&L_Ont we have the puke room for most cruises. Lol. 

my days are generally very boring. I get up. I get my daughter ready for school. I sit at my home office desk and have call after call. I then pick up my daughter and try to make dinner, work out, get her a bath and go to sleep at a reasonable hour. 
 

But! It was windy yesterday. I was going along to pick up my daughter and niece from school when I see a trash can on the side of the road. Wind was about 50mph...wind and fire warning ... I see the lid lift and think .... that trash can is blowing in the road. My dad always taught me to never swerve, so I just go in the left lane (it was empty) and boom. I could have had a deposit on a suite for 4 for my deductible. The funny thing? I paid it off this month. I mean, it depends how you look at it...  No loss of life. It’s plastic.

 

Hope you all are well.

No, my pictures fell out, like all my other reviews. But, if someone wants to Hop over and see those pictures,  they can. 

That photo is permanently engraved in my mind.  I don't think I stopped laughing the whole time I read that thread.  Andrew, was it yours?

That was just one of many classic photos. Several, as I recall, seemed to involve a particular finger in her hand.

All of the photos were epic. I'm smiling just thinking about them.

I am very lucky. I am 40, but work in agriculture (HR). Our company managed to work with a local pharmacy to get a shipment of vaccine dedicated to our company. We are the largest employer in the town and we also had a huge outbreak in 2020 at the factory.

 

that said, I get my Pfizer vaccine (1st shot) tomorrow. My sister, who teaches human reproduction (sex Ed) gets hers from

the same pharmacy on Tuesday. She is 43. Mom and dad are already over two weeks past their 2nd dose. We have to convince my BIL to keep nagging the local Pharmacies. He is an essential worker; he delivers fuel.

 

I am considering signing my daughter (9) up for the trials, if and when they come to where we live. I want her vaccinated ASAP. I travel a lot to Europe for my job and she is Swiss American (this my username). Her dad could not come now for over a year to visit and right now, we would still have quarantine if we go to Switzerland. Suck. I am scheduled to travel again in June but she will

have to wait...
 

We have now scheduled a land vacation for end of May. This is all 8 of us: mom, dad, me, PJ, my sister, BIL, and two nieces.  We are driving down to Texas to the JW Mariott in San Antonio. Lots of pools and fun.. plus lots to do in the city! Andwide Open Spaces. We do wear our masks and are thinking we may be able to safely enjoy the outdoor dining!

I have a cousin with blue eyes that was told the same thing. She was a nervous wreck over it. We have always been quite happy with our blue eyes. I did do a bit of teasing.😇

Wait, Italians have blue eyes?

How do u see someone's signature?😕

It’s the same like you have your name, the diamond picture and the Celebrity Elite. Search for member Saint Greg and you can see a link to his blog. On his blog he has a link to the bar hop thing.

Welcome to our happy Cruise Critic place.  Of course, when you're in San Antonio don't miss the Riverwalk & the Alamo. End of May, perfect weather.

 

My sister's twin 13-year old grandkids are in the vaccine trials.  After 1st shot, he was fatigued for 1 day, his sister was fine. Nobody knows if they got a placebo or the real deal.

I'm ready to get the convertible out of winter storage in garage and put roof down🤩

We have a good 4-6 weeks to go here before I will even consider it.  

 

So, I guess the one good thing about having an all weather convertible that's also my everyday  driving car is that it's ready to drop its top at the touch of a button.  Just need to wash the winter grime off to make it really shine.

 

The knock against it is that it's probably not nearly as much fun to drive as the cars that need to be stored for winter or the various 'Stang or SLK convertibles pictured here before. But once that top goes down,  all that is forgotten.  Lol

Welcome, Leanna.

 

Sorry it had to be in those "circumstances", but, after all we've been through in the past year, your look at life is the right one 💐🌺

Always ready for summer weather. Love the exterior and interior colours.

Well thank you for asking. Blue eyes are very common in Italians,  especially from mid to northern Italy.  When I was obtaining my Italian citizenship I had to obtain all sorts of documents which enabled me to be able to trace the genetics back to my great grandparents, on both my mother and father's side, that created my blue eyes.  Now, just remember, I have never claimed to not being a little weird.😊

I started driving in the 80s and bought my first used Chrysler 400 convertible around 1989.  Had to unzip the back vinyl window before putting top down.  That was annoying as sometimes I fought with zipper but like you said as soon as that roof is down you forget all of that.  I have had a convertible almost every year since then.  😎

Welcome onboard.  As said before to join this group you need to clean out your fridge or freezer...we are on our 2nd cleaning a year later...hehe

Ouch on the car, at least noone hurt, amazing what the impact with a trash can did to your car.

Back to the topic of being a little weird... I've never had a convertible but will not buy a car without a moon (sun) roof. I also will not buy a car without a premium sound system as I am very into music. I will not open either the moon roof or windows as it interferes with the sound if the music. But the moon roof still has to be there...just in case....

Welcome SM USA, San Antonio is a great town.  You'll have loads of fun.

First one of these in 2 months, because I have been working hard at getting rid of that quarantine 15.  Before I left for this little vacation, I managed to drop 14.  Hope this doesn’t do too much damage.

I have premium sound system in my convertible.   Sound is pretty good with roof down when driving local but as soon as I get on highway I blast it and sing away.  I cannot sing at all so if Eric is in car with me he will put on his ear buds and listen to music on his phone.  🤩

You should have got them to blow their horn!  I miss hearing that sound!!

Looks lovely even though a bit chilly.

I love that sound. One time leaving St. Maarten, Adventure and Ocean Village had an epic horn battle. I was in heaven.
