    Celebrate!
    Enjoy your cruise! You've earned it! How exciting for you!

    What ports are you going to? I like Mazatlan and Puerto Vallarta. I'm not to big on the Cabo area, but I do really like La Paz for the Baja area. I spend most of my time in Mexico in the Yucatan, but western Mexico sure is nice with the mountains. Just give me an ocean and I'm happy. :)

    Have fun!

    Thanks, all!
    It is hard to believe it has been 5 years since my world turned upside down...

    I REALLY needed to do something special, especially since it's the lucky number 5!!!!

    (Gee, I wish my insurance company would look at it the same...that I am cured...lol)

    Hugs to all,

    Connection
    Kathi,

    Have a FABULOUS trip!!! There are many reasons I feel a connection to you, but now I know another. You were diagnosed the day after Thanksgiving; I had my surgery that day. Mine will be 2 years ago, though. You've reached that magic 5!!!!

    *hugs*

    Hi Kathe,

    I have been periodically perusing the board and have missed seeing your posts. I just remember when I first started posting and how encouraging you have been. I always looked forward to your comments as they have been so supportive of all. Have a great trip! Here's to another 50 years.
