Default Good Morning all

It has been 10 years since I've said good morning here. Rumors of my passing are highly exaggerated. To old friends, Hello.
All is well. Papa and Gram have downsized to a townhome in the Hudson Valley. Still both working. Daughters 1 to 3 are all quite well. Grandchild count now 7. Oldest in college, three in High School.
We still cruise. Average twice yearly, mostly on Royal Caribbean, occasionally Celebrity.
As I used to say "have a great day everyone".
PapaBill

Good Morning Papa Bill and all to follow!


Working from home today to end the workweek, I work 10 hour days so I always have Friday off. That makes the upcoming weekend a 4 day followed by a work at home day.
I posted about the increased homeless population in the train station that is connected directly to my office building and the increase of aggressive panhandlers. We got a message from management that one of them pursued one of my coworkers up to the secure door to our building. No harm but she/he was scared. The transit police are promising increased patrols.


On a more pleasant note we are supposed to have a warm weekend!


Everyone have a great and grateful day!

PapaBill!! So great to hear from you! You are one of the many I remember from when I first joined CM, welcome back, glad to hear "rumours of your demise" were highly exaggerated!

As for me, we are in the middle of yet another winter blizzard, the 4th one since last week. Yesterday was a "get-everything-done-before-the-next-one-hits-day." We managed to get groceries, WINE, library books, and both our yoga class and my Zumba class in. I also made it to the hospital very early (which is why I didn't post yesterday morning). I finally got my stitches out from that excision 2 weeks ago. Unfortunately pathology report showed it was a basal cell carcinoma, so I will have to be vigilant about mole-checking and sunscreen for the rest of my life. You can't be too careful, that's how I found this one!

So today we are hunkered down once again, going out occasionally to shovel a path for the dogs. Other than that, just feeling thankful we still have power!

Trip, hope you are recovering well from your surgery!

donna

Good morning. Well we will only have temps in the low 70's today, we got a tiny bit of rain last evening, not enough to do anything. Nothing planned for me today


All have a great day.

Good morning all.

A trip to Sam's Club for me.

Have a nice day.

I know that Ray said Todd was in the hospital, but did we ever find out anymore?

HowD CMs! Dropped off my EOS at the garage this morning, so it's going to be a stay at home day today. Too bad because it's a sunny day with temps heading to 75.

A great day to golf, but none of that today😢 It the car was making an odd sort of noise when first starting it, so thought it best to get it checked out.

Mrs Kuki has a busy day planned so I'm going to be home alone. Maybe I'll surprise her and clean the place up...na😀

Only have about 6 weeks left in our 5 month AZ winter escape. Time does fly by. Thankfully we've been healthy and enjoying every day, though missing the grand babies at home.

Good morning from SoCal. It's a beautiful sunny day which we are told to enjoy. Lots of rain coming.

So nice to see new people posting.

Keith had the stitches removed from his skin cancer surgery. He's glad to get rid of the bandage. He'll need to be more careful, as well. He is careless about wearing suntan lotion and a hat.

As part of battening down the batches, I'm going grocery shopping today. We're supposed to go to a play on Sunday. We'll see . . .

I hope Todd is doing well.

Judy
