  4. Today is a big day. Our granddaughter is graduating from High School. Seems like she was born yesterday. Lucky they are having a nice outdoor ceremony and a small party for her at her other grandmother's house. Small degree of normal.

      Glad she is getting a live graduation.

  5. Sad Happy.... We sold our big boat up here in CT. After 30years at this marina we will give it up and start land travels. We will be looking at travel trailers when we get back to Florida. Lucky the new owners cannot take possession till Aug 1 so they want us to stay... Visiting with our friends and family here for the next 6 weeks. Plenty of time to move out.

      Really?!!  Why, though?

      30 years, hard work, very expensive and dock friends have changed. They are doing dock upgrades here and the yearly summer rate will be going up $1,000 per summer, winter rates too and shrinkwrap already went up.. We also want to go back to camping to see this beautiful country.

      Wow, that is the end of an era! We borrowed an RV and travelled across America from Las Vegas to Florida over a two-month period in 2007. It was really thrilling and we were so impressed with the magnificent RV parks with so many facilities. Our favourite was the Outdoor Resort on Hilton Head Island in South Carolina! A chance meeting with a vet led us there as she had three spaces and lent us one of hers. We arrived at the same time as the PGA golf tournament and scored free tickets to watch for a day! One thing that we discovered consistently was the kindness and generosity of our fellow travellers.

  6. Boat is launched and we are finally at a marina with internet... It's been 4 days with none. I am so far behind.

  7. We are starting our 1,500 mile drive North to go live on boat for the summer, visit family and friends.

  8. Our sweet daughter has to have a hysterectomy today. She is nervous and has to go this totally alone. I hope all goes well and the tests come back ok. No visitors...poor girl. Stressful day as we pack to go North. I will see her in 2 weeks.

      I know! It is staggering how quickly the time goes. My youngest turns 40 on Thursday and I still have the little wrist band from the hospital. It just fits around two of my fingers! It's a shock to the system when all your kids are over 40!!!

  12. Restrictions are loosened just in time for our Cinco De Mayo- a day early - Mexican party tonight. Off to do the final touches. Now we can have  20 friends over instead of 10!!!!

      I'm making masks for the county courthouse staff.  Running out of elastic and trying to improvise.  

      I have some round elastic if you'd like me to mail some to you.

      Some people like the ties better. One of our ladies makes 1 inch strips of tee shirt fabric the pulls till they roll and uses them.

  15. Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone. Today we think green so why not make a Green ATC, it's this month's theme! More info here

  16. I am hoping that all of you in the high risk areas of the world can stay safe.  This has turned into a world wide event in a very short period of time, it's very scary.

      It sure is fast moving. They said it's spreading faster than the common 'flu. Scary time.

      The quickness of it all is astounding...  Which is what the experts were trying to tell the world last week when some of them thought it was over-reacting.   NJ cases are rising alarmingly, hopefully we’re at peak and it will come down.   Stay safe Debby and everyone...  Good time to scrap, but somehow I’m having a hard time doing that!  

  17. I'm so excited, we are going to meet up with Diane (FloridaGranny) and her husband for lunch today. We didn't get together last winter so we have lots to catch up on. Have a fun day everyone.

      I can’t believe a week has passed already, seems like only a minute ago you were going to get them at the airport.  Can’t wait to see your photos and pages.  :)

  19. Tomorrow we go to the airport so pick up our daughter and grandchildren...this Grammy is very excited to see them all. I'll  be visiting here daily but not as much as normal.
