Luckily I got out of the hospital last night, so I haven't ruined the plans! My daughter's graduation from college is this weekend. She is graduating with a major in Spanish & Portugese, and a minor with certificate Teaching English as a Second Language. We don't have her final G.P.A. yet, but it should be a 3.99! We are so proud of her! (She has one more course before getting her certificate in Translation.)

Saturday we are having a big party, and my family is coming from other states. I'm really looking forward to celebrating and having most of my family here! My oldest daughter can't come home for a couple more weeks, so we'll miss her. My oldest son is coming home from college for the weekend.

Sunday is commencement. My daughter is going straight from there to the airport. She was awarded a Fellowship and is off to Berlin. (She speaks a lot of German also.) She will be teaching English in an elementary school and writing a research paper. When she is done, she is traveling southern Spain and Portugal.

This is one of those milestones I have been fighting to be here for!

(Two more years till the youngest son graduates from high school, and 2 1/2 until the older one graduates from college. My long-term goal right now is to make it to see the youngest graduate from college. I need a plan to keep me around at least 6 more years.)

Even though you can't take your own boat out anymore, I'm glad you are still able to get out and fish and do what you enjoy! Have fun!

This is the 60s weekend and Spring bike rally on the island here. There will be a lot of people in town for that and lots of owners getting their houses ready for summer. This is a great time of year here, not too crowded, but everything is open and people are fired up.

I will be getting ready for the next couple of weekends. I have a summer kickoff party next weekend and then Chicago for Memorial weekend. I sent the Evite to all the "usual suspects", but have gotten a far greater response than typical. I chalk this up to folks knowing I have the big C :-) One benefit I guess.

We will probably have around fifteen people crammed in my townhouse (that has beds for 6). Its a fun bunch and no one will care if they end up on the couches or an air mattress. I have to get all the food planned and buy plenty of, um, beverages...

Hope you all have fun this weekend!

I live in New Jersey on Wildwood island. Its a summer beach town full of clubs and bars with a long tacky boardwalk with a carnival atmosphere and lots of rides and junk food. Luckily I live pretty far south of the craziness, but its close enough to enjoy it when I want.

Chicago is one of my girlfriend's favorite cities and we will be vacationing there and seeing a Cubs baseball game at historic Wrigley field. I was lucky enough to get seats in the sixth row behind home plate - one more checkoff for the "list" :-p

I love Barcelona! Its a beautiful, vibrant city full of friendly people and great food. I was bummed to hear that there was an arson fire at the Gaudi cathedral last month. I hope they got that fixed up!

Hugs back!

One day I will ask you a question about fishing , just a place I want to know where it is since I was a kid , it's a lake that I have seen in a very old movie and always comes to my mind when I talk about fishing maybe you will investigate it for me? .
Hugs my friend!

Gardening- Since April 15th, I have planted 80 plants. I have about 40 to go. I am planting beds full of japanese holly ferns. Nice rugged plant. This will be my last week since the temperatures are already in the 90's here. Pepe, sorry I forgot how to convert to degrees C.

Was supposed to walk in Relay for Life tomorrow but bad thunderstorms are coming our way and don't want to be out there if the weather gets bad. Our daughter, who works for Delta, is sponsoring one of the booths. That's such a bummer about these events, if the weather is bad, you don't get much participation.

Have a great weekend. Kim

Hi, We're going to celebrate Rick's daughter's 9th birthday tomorrow with his family. They'll be about 15 people (which includes 5 kids under 11), so it should be a fun day. (Of course, I'm looking forward to the chocolate cake!...) ;-)

But only just the seas were very rough and all of my bits that don't work so good any more made me realise that I am wise not to go to sea on my own anymore. We caught a beautiful haul of prime reef fish. One of our younger members of the party was seasick the whole day and the rest of us got shaken and stirred beating the 25 miles home into the teeth of a 20 knot souwester. We got in safely thru the bar and even the sick guy agreed it was a top day. Ron.

I wont be doing much this weekend, but taking my oldest daugther to get her nails done and her feet. I will drop her off and watch my grandsons, 2 yrs and 6 months. Then hopefully come home and rest with my 9 yr old son. Will go to church on Sunday and relax at home. Lately I feel so tired that when we go to Walmart etc I have to get one of those motorized carts. That sometimes I wonder how much longer I can keep walking and driving with some assistance. So many times it takes alot in order for me to get up and walk etc.

Particulrly as I had an mri in december that showed a poorly healed stress fracture of the lower spine . More than likely caused by one of my erlier sea trips in not so good conditions. I am not moving too well tonight ,early to bed I think. Ron.

I have a semirigid 8.5 meters boat with a Suzuki. 225 hp, so every summer Sunday we use to go to some nice beaches 10/20 miles north to my summer house where beaches are not so beauty, the problem is that here ,every afternoon in Summer, the wind starts to blow from south , between 10 to 20 knots, so every sunday I suffer the same as you had today, haha, we always regret but next Sunday we do it again!.
Rest a bit ,hope tomorrow you awake painless!.
Hugs dear shipmate!

WOW RON!!! 50 miles in a boat in one day out on the seas, anyone would be exhaused after that. Sounds like you had fun and a good haul...did you have a fish fry afterwards??

We were supposed to go to a car cruise in cocoa beach, fl. But, it is going to rain & we try not to drive the vette in the rain. (2004 modified). So we are taking the civic (yuk) & going to meet my former neighbors from PA. She just got done radiation for breast cancer. Then I get ready for a visit from my daughter and grandson from the 19th-23rd. Can't wait to see them.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone,
Judy

Hugs to you too.

Hey Judy, we have vetts too...my husband has a '59, it's the kind where you can lift off the hard top and it is a convertible too. It's black on black. And we have (I think) it's a '78, silver. We used to go to a lot of show and shine car shows back before we had the kids...sheesh makes me realize it's like 23 years ago!!! Now I feel old. At one time we had a street rod.

My husband has had all kinds of cars. rod, model t, model a. he is a nut.
We have a driver, which is my car. 99coupe, white with the roof that come off.
It is an automatic, just for my convenience. His is tweaked and faster than the average vette. It has billy boat mufflers. OMG. she is like a tiger coming out of the garage.!! Needless to say I love that car. Mine too, it is my happy place. Can't drive a vette and feel miserable ; ) I'm gonna post a picture of her.
His big project now is turning our golf cart into a camaro. I can't wait. We don't play golf, but where we live you can go just about anywhere in them Lots of fun. but so slow!!!!
(my grandchildren think i am the coolest nanny ever!!! )

My husband is a "nut" too. The past few years he's taken up an interest in restoring old race boats of all things. So, last summer we actually took his restoration project to a boat show. He really wanted it finished for the show, but of course the mechanic didn't have the motors ready.....but he took her to the show anyway. It was a blast, fun little place called Alexandria Bay, 1000 Islands, N.Y. Very touristy, in the 1000 Islands area, very beautiful. Funny when we were there it had such a resourt feeling to it, we were a couple of hours drive away from home but it felt like we were in a touristy area of Florida.
