almost ready to sail

WE ARE ALMOST PACKED. WE LEAVE ON A BUS AT 5AM SUNDAY AND WON'T BE BACK FOR A WEEK. PACKING HAS ALWAYS BEEN ONE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS--NOT--I HATE IT. JERRY JUST TOLD ME I WILL DO MOST OF IT AT MIDNIGHT SATURDAY. HE IS PROBABLY RIGHT. BUT EVEN SO, I AM FURTHER ALONG THAN HE IS. HE HAS SUDDENLY DECIDED HE HAS TO GET A BOX TO PUT STUFF IN TO TAKE HOME IN MAY!!!


I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO FIX MY NAILS. DID YOU EVER TRY TO CLIP YOUR RIGHT HAND WITH A LEFT HAND THAT HAS NO POWER?? WELL IT IS IMPOSSIBLE! JERRY THOUGHT HE COULD DO IT---BUT HE SCARES ME TO DEATH. AM AFRAID I WOULD LOSE A FINGER AS WELL AS A NAIL. THE LAST FEW YEARS WE HAVE BEEN GOING TO MEXICO FOR PEDICURES (9 DOLLARS), BUT HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO DO THAT YET.CANNOT BELIEVE WE HAVE BEEN HERE 2 MONTHS ALREADY AND HAVE NOT GONE TO SOME OF OUR FAVORITE PLACES.

WAS SO PLEASED LAST NIGHT TO LEARN THAT SOME OF MY WEATHER CHAT ROOM FRIENDS HAVE BEEN READING MY JOURNAL. THE "WEATHER CHAT ROOM" WAS ONE OF THE 1ST PLACES I WENT WHEN I GOT MY COMPUTER. THOSE FOLKS TAUGHT ME ALL I KNOW ABOUT THIS MACHINE. I DO NOT REMEMBER HOW I EVEN FOUND THEM. MANY OF THEM HAVE A REUNION EACH OCTOBER IN MYRTLE BEACH. WE HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO GO THERE, BUT DID MEET THREE OF THEM IN HOUSTON A FEW YEARS AGO FOR A REALLY FUN WEEKEND, AND WE HAVE STOPPED IN IOWA TO VISIT ONE VERY SWEET LADY AND HER HUSBAND. LAST SPRING WHEN I WAS IN THE HOSPITAL I GOT CALLS AND EMAILS FROM SEVERAL ALSO.

WELL, I JUST DISCOVERED I DO NOT HAVE A LONG SLIP DOWN HERE. WE ARE SUPPOSE TO DRESS UP 2 NIGHTS FOR DINNER ON THE SHIP AND I HAVE A COUPLE LONG SKIRTS, BUT IF THE SUN IS SHINING I MIGHT BE EMBARRASSED! SO HELPFUL HUBBY IS OFF TO WALMART TO BUY ME A SLIP. HEAVEN ONLY KNOWS WHAT HE WILL COME HOME WITH!! SEE YA NEXT WEEK--------
