This is one relaxed couple, sitting in the lounge, enjoying the guitar music. We really had a great time. I will have more pictures to come.

Sorry it's been a while

Chuck and I had a great trip on our cruise and it has been crazy hectic since we returned. My mom just left for Texas to visit her brother and sister-in-law who are celebrating their 45th anniversary. My aunt Mary Louise has ALS and is not doing too well so mom wanted to see her. It is very sad and yet we are happy for them since all of their children and grandchildren will be there, along with brothers and sisters. As soon as I download pics I will get them posted. Thanks for being patient!

Puerto Rico

Well, we arrived safely in San Juan and after a good nights sleep in our room at Hosteria Del Mar we are sitting in the small hotel cafe, drinking amazing coffee, waiting for our breakfast to come and looking at the ocean which is about 60 feet away!! The music is exotic and soothing and the air is thick with sea and humidity. It is probably 75 degrees but it is so comfortable and I feel very free. We are planning to go to Old San Juan for the all day fiesta and a visit to the Hard Rock Cafe and maybe the Bacardi Factory (tasting anyone). I'll be back in touch.

It's been a while

I am waiting for Chuck to get home so we can pack for our trip to the southern Caribbean. I am so excited and it will be our first cruise. I hope it is as fun as I expect it to be. We will get to dive while we are there and hope to spend several days snorkeling on the beautiful islands we will visit. I just printed our boarding passes and now am trying to relax and get ready. Chuck called earlier and said "Guess what? I am on vacation!" I now exactly how he feels. We will be home on Sunday January 25th. I don't even want to think about coming home right now. I hope to have some wonderful photos and great memories to share. Pray for a safe journey for us.

Poor Chuckles

My poor fella just got back from having surgery on his right knee. The knee was pretty worn out and required a bit extra work but he is home now and Mocha is taking very good care of him.

She was very concerned when he got home and wanted to make sure he was properly cared for. I think she feels that mom and I get in the way. What a silly puppy. He is doing okay now that the percocet has taken effect. Now is the time to get him to agree to a move to Hawaii!!! But seriously the doctor said he should have had this done years ago. (This is where I say I told you so, but I won't)

That dog really thinks she owns us. He better be ready for our cruise to Puerto Rico and The Virgin Islands a week from Friday. I would hate for him to have to stay at home ;-)

Happy New Year everyone.

Hooray for Hollywood!!!

Yep, that's me and Denzel. Woo hoo! He is one of my favorites and I was silly that I found his block. I still have to find his star if he has one. I had so much fun with Chelsea in Hollywood. There were tons of people downtown, but the part that is so fun is the eccentric mix of crazies that walk around down there. And can you say "Cap'n Jack?" I found Johnny Depp! This was so much fun. What was so surprising was how small so many of the stars hands and feet were. My feet were huge compared to Judy Garland. John Wayne wore a mens size 9 !! Considering how tall he was I don't know how he got around. There was a block for all of the Harry Potter stars and it had the logo embedded in it very cool.

Hollywood Boulevard. It is sparkly, shiny, silly, crazy and a very fun place to walk around. It is fake in an expected way. People are bizarre but just what you would figure to see. I think the only place more weird would be Venice Beach. Maybe next time too. I want to go back and spend more time wandering. Maybe next October while we are there for Aaron and Chelsea's wedding.
