Sunny, Sunny and Warm Saturdayc

Hi there everyone. Can you believe it? This weekend the temperatures will be in the 40's and 50's with sunshine. In over a month, it will be Spring. 

A father and his son go into the grocery store when they happen upon the condom aisle. The son asks his father why there are so many different boxes of condoms. The father replies, ''Well, you see that 3-pack? That's for when you're in high school. You have 2 for Friday night and 1 for Saturday night.''
The son then asks his father, ''What's the 6-pack for?''
The father replies, ''Well, that's for when you're in college. You have 2 for Friday night, 2 for Saturday night, and 2 for Sunday morning.''
Then the son asks his father what the 12-pack is for.
The father replies, ''Well, that's for when you're married. You have one for January, one for February, one for March, one for... ''

Stolen FruitSaturday Jokes

Mary was taken before the judge accused of theft, and he asked her, 'What did you steal?'
'A small can of peaches,' Mary replied, weeping.
The judge then asked her why she had stolen the peaches, and she replied that she was hungry.
The judge then inquired, 'And how many peaches were in the can?'
Mary answered, 'Only 6 small pieces.'
The judge harshly announced, 'Then I will give you 6 days in jail.' But before the judge could finish pronouncing the punishment, the woman's husband, Derek, interrupted and asked the judge if he could say something?
The judge, slightly annoyed asked, 'And what have you to say in your wife's defence?'
Derek spoke clearly, 'She also stole a large can of peas.'

Big Eric

One day, Dave, the bus driver, was in his bus when the biggest man he had ever seen got on. The giant looked at the driver and growled, 'Big Eric doesn't pay' , and took his seat.
Dave was only a little man and he didn't really want to argue.
This happened for several days. After a week, Dave was beginning to get a little angry. Everybody else paid, so why not the big man?
So Dave went to the gym and started a course of body-building. He didn't want to be frightened of Big Eric any longer.
Eight weeks later the driver had strong muscles and was feeling very fit.
At the usual stop, Big Eric got on. 'Big Eric doesn't pay' , he barked; but this time Dave was prepared for him. He stood up, shaking slightly, and said between clenched teeth, 'Oh, yeah? And why doesn't Big Eric pay?'
'Because Big Eric has got a bus pass', the man replied.

Well that's it for today. This sun is so beautiful and warm. Enjoy your day my good friends.

Snowy, Snowy, Snowy Thursday

As I watch the snow flowing down from the sky out my window, I wonder what it must be like to be sitting on my balcony with my wife as we  look out at the water and enjoy the warmth of the sun.

Last night my friends visited us and Al & I enjoyed playing pool again. I has bee over a month since we played and believe it or not, neither one of us messed out. We still knew what do with cue stick. ha,ha,ha. 
Today I'm going to lunch with my cousin Dan. Another person I haven't been with over a month. Since I was sick I didn't want to give my sickness to them.

Four Catholic men and a Catholic woman

Four Catholic men and a Catholic woman were having coffee when one of the Catholic men tells his friends, "My son is a priest, when he walks into a room, everyone calls him 'Father'."

The second Catholic man chirps, "My son is a Bishop. When he walks into a room people call him 'Your Grace'."

The third Catholic gent says, "My son is a Cardinal. When he enters a room everyone says 'Your Eminence'."

The fourth Catholic man then says, "My son is the Pope. When he walks into a room people call him 'Your Holiness'."

Since the lone Catholic woman was sipping her coffee in silence, the four men give her a subtle, "Well....?"

She proudly replies, "I have a daughter, slim, tall, 38D breast, 24" waist and 34" hips. When she walks into a room, people say, "Oh - My - God." 

Extra Effort Award

I was due for an appointment with the gynecologist later in the week. Early one morning, I received a call from the doctor's office to tell me that I had been rescheduled for that morning at 9:30 a.m.

I had only just packed everyone off to work and school, and it was already around 8:45 am. The trip to his office took about 35 minutes, so I didn't have any time to spare.

As most women do, I like to take a little extra effort over hygiene when making such visits, but this time I wasn't going to be able to make the full effort.

So, I rushed upstairs, threw off my pajamas, wet the washcloth that was sitting next to the sink, and gave myself a quick wash in "that area" to make sure I was at least presentable. I threw the washcloth in the clothes basket, donned some clothes, hopped in the car and raced to my appointment.

I was in the waiting room for only a few minutes when I was called in. Knowing the procedure, as I'm sure you do, I hopped up on the table, looked over at the other side of the room and pretended that I was in Paris or some other place a million miles away. I was a little surprised when the doctor said, "My, we have made an extra effort this morning, haven't we?" I didn't respond.

After the appointment, I heaved a sigh of relief and went home. The rest of the day was normal... some shopping, cleaning, cooking, etc. After school when my six year old daughter was playing, she called out from the bathroom, "Mommy, where's my washcloth?"

I told her to get another one from the cupboard. She replied, "No, I need the one that was here by the sink, it had all my glitter and sparkles saved inside it."
          Well guess what? It's still snowing. I wish I was back on one of the islands any island. 
    Not Bonaire! Any island but Bonaire. 
                        Now you are talking, Grand Turk. I love how beautiful the water is.
                                                            That's it for now my friends. 
                                                                                   SEE YA !

This is the port of Miami. You have the large Cruise ships and you have the many smaller ships. Good morning friends. There were many photos that I had on my cruise so I thought I would put some of them in my blog. By the way you'll notice my header has changed. I thought after 10 years, I would change the photo since I'm older now. How do you like the new one? I might be changing it often. We'll see.

            This is the large pool at Grand Turk. I just love siting there watching the people. maybe next year I'll even get into the pool since we are going back to Grand Turk.

    This is exactly what you will see when you get off the ship and walk the long pier to Grand Turk.

                                                    Walking down the many streets in St. Kitts.

     This a photo I took right from my balcony. Now my camera clicked twice and It showed this. It wasn't me but my camera.
                            Sorry about that but it just happened by accident. Oh ya.

                                                      What a beautiful day on the lido deck.

                                                  That's about it until my cruise next year.

Sunny, Cold & Snow Is Coming After My Cruise.

Good to see you again my friends. The last two days have been at the hospital for an untrasound, blood tests & some test about my heart. Don't worry about it. I'm still going to live especially now that I've my arranged my next cruise on the beautiful Carnival Vista. 
This afternoon my friend Gerry is coming over to play some pool and have a cup of coffee. It's been some time since we've seen each other. I'm looking forward to it.


Passengers aboard an elegant cruise yacht were having a great party when a beautiful young girl fell overboard. Immediately there was an 80-year-old man in the water who rescued her. The sailors pulled them both out of the treacherous waters. The captain was grateful as well as astonished that the old man performed such an act of bravery. And that night a luxurious banquet was given in honor of the cruise yacht’s elderly hero. He was called forward to receive an award and was asked to say a few words. He said, “First of all, I’d like to know who pushed me!”

An elderly lady aboard a party cruise ship was not impressed by the lively jazz band basting their horns in one of the shipboard restaurants. When her waiter comes around, she asks, “Will they play anything I ask?” “Of course, my lady!” replies the waiter. “Then tell them to go play shuffleboard!”


A married couple was on a sailing cruise when the weather turned stormy and the windy wallop of a wild wave washed the whisky wrenched husband overboard. Rescue teams failed, all hope was lost. Suddenly 2 weeks later the widowed wife was told her husband’s body had been found. “We hauled him up on deck,” said the leader of the search crew. “And attached to his body was an oyster containing a beautiful pearl worth about $50,000. What would you like us to do?” The now wealthy widow wondered for a moment and then said “Hand over the pearl and re-bait the trap.”

Americans: Please divert your course 15 degrees to the North to avoid a collision.

Canadians: Recommend you divert your course 15 degrees to the South to avoid a collision.

Americans: This is the Captain of a US Navy ship. I say again, divert your course.

Canadians: No. I say again, you divert your course.


Canadians: This is a lighthouse. Your call chief.


You know friends, every time I  get home after my cruise, I just feel so bad that I wish I was back on the ship but not this time. Getting sick would get that idea out of your mind I'll tell you.
Well, I'll let you go now. Have a great day friends.

Good morning everyone. Only one more day left of the 2016 cruise. Sitting in my balcony even though I'm not feeling very well, I must realize I'm sitting here  where I enjoy the most. It's to bad that I can't cruise as much as I would like to. 
Lets make our final day a good one.
Here's Mary Lou enjoying her breakfast ( me also but I taking a photo in the Lido marketplace. )
After we decided walk around. I wanted to take a few more photos.

 This is where we spent more time during the day. Because we had wonderful weather, we wanted to spent the time here or on the Lido deck. The other places that we did walk around was the following.

 We are at the Sports Square where Mary Lou is playing pool and later we played golf.

                                            This the Tides Pool in the back of the pool

There's not much more to say of show. Overall, we've had a fairly decent cruise except for the sickness. 

  Showing this photo tells you that our cruise is coming to an end because we are on our was to Miami.

Our steward Ari has two more special towels to give us.


            The next morning we were up early, had breakfast, off the ship and on our bus to the 

                                                                  Miami International Airport


After sitting for a couple of hours our plane is ready for us to board and go to Detroit

 Our cruise is finished for another year. Oh by the way. Remember that every year Mary Lou & I have a picture taken on Elegant night and also remember that I had forgotten my jacket. Well, here is the photo of the two of us. She looks fantastic and me, well I wished I had remembered my jacket.

 Home sweet home and we're watching the football game eating pizza. Back to normal.
