Hi CeeAngel

We were on the ship once when the bikers were there...great group!! and watching the bikes come on/off the ship was so much fun! Hope all is well...and we look forward to sailing again with you soon.

Top of the morning to you all! Let's get this party started. What a great idea to have a place for past Beadies to chat.

DinghyCaptain!! You made me smile first thing this morning to see a post from you! Can't wait to cruise with you again.

CeeAngel-Great!! I was hoping someone else from the past Beadies would be joining us on the April 1st cruise. There are not many of us so far-Tommy and Sandra, Millie38 and her dh, and my group of 3. Hope more will join us as time goes on. And we're looking forward to cruising with the bikers! Have heard about it but never seen it. The group is from Canada. Should be interesting.

Nice to see your name pop up again. This site is doing what it's supposed to do by bringing friends together.

I promised JP that you'd be on the April 1st cruise. Don't make me a liar. He's still mad at RCL and only the promise of good friends on this one (you, Scott & Tami and Tommy and Sandra) made him agree. Get the ball rolling. It's been way to long since we've cruised with you, and we're looking forward to cruising with Laura.

We want to go on this cruise but we are still trying to work the time off for Laura. It runs in to Spring Break time and the County frowns on vacationing for teachers during the school year. However Laura's principal is very good with letting her break the rules. Still a possibility.
Hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful day.Spring just may have sprung!

Talking It worked!

DC...so happy you dropped in! Do hope we can cross paths before too long.

It's beautiful out today. Time to get things going in the garden. I bought my first flats of pansies. They must have come out while we were cruising because by the time I went to buy them, they were being marked down to half price. I always find pansies to be such cheery flowers.

Default Let's not forget our other thread...

I found this there this afternoon:

Gail hornig in hospital
Hi everyone- I hope Im doing this post correctly. This is gail's (GrandmaGail) daughter, karen. Mom is in the hospital here in Gaithersburg, MD- Shady Grove Adventist Hospital. We think she has a kidney infection, but she's not getting any better. She's been in since Thursday and a Kidney Doctor is stopping by today and can hopefully get us some more information. I know mom corresponds with a lot of you and that she had a great time on the most recent cruise. i hope all of you are well. You can try emailing mom directly - but she really hasn't been online or I can be reached at Nerak1818@gmail.com. Thanks everyone. -karen hornig

Just saw this on the old thread and wanted you all to see it so I am moving the contents of the post here. Gail is ill and in the hospital. Thought you'd all want to know.

Thumbs up Some progress...

Just spoke to Gail and she sounds much better than when I spoke to her a few days ago. She said that she is a bit stronger and can now lift her head up, which is progress! Thought you'd like to know.

It's hot out...and in! I just gave up and put the AC on for the first time. Now to go out and check on the new pottings and give them a drink.

Thank you for posting the update on Gail.

Alan has been watering our new trees. We donated to Arbor Day--so, of course they sent us trees to plant as a thank you. (no good deed goes unpunished)

Would like to ask for prayers tomorrow as Sandra has her thyroid surgery. There are two possible scenarios, one less invasive and the other more invasive with a longer recovery period. We are hoping for the lesser.

Will do Tommy. I had been thinking about Sandra lately and didn't know when the surgery was to take place, but now I do.

Tommy,
You and Sandra have been in our thoughts and prayers ever since we learned of this surgery. Please let us know the good news when all is well.
