Ah - I'm sure he'd like this comment - you know how teenagers are always in a hurry to be "adult". But as mom I can't help but think - oh the woes of having a single mom and being "man of the house" since he was 10, poor guy.

-- speaking of Bryce here he is at 11 - don't tell him I shared!

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks Genny
I know my PM box was full so I am sorry if you tried to send me a message that way.

I just got 8 shirts from Vista today (it's a long story) and didn't have any low resolution issues. Now, I haven't ordered all of the images on my Flicker page. Are you copying the images to your computer and then to Vista or going from my Flicker page to Vista? Bob says each time you copy an image to another file the resolution is degraded. So why don't you send me an e-mail, valbob789@aol.com, with the description of the images you are trying to print. If you want, send me your phone number and maybe it would be easier talking about it. Val

Thanks, Mom .
I can't wait to see you in it!!

I panicked just a tad. I called a pharmacy (we were in Texas at that point) and asked about it - seems like 1 in 10,000 have that little effect. It took 4 days for my vision to return once I removed the patch.

My suggestion is that if someone is going to try that patch, get a sample from somewhere and TRY IT AT HOME FIRST. One doesn't want to go blind (even temporarily) while on vacation.
My mother sailed with us at 82 years old and was quite worried about seasickness since riding in a car makes her ill. She asked her doctor for these and he had her go to her eye doctor for clearance first. She did fine with them in Hurricane Olga (late season storm we sailed thru after I promised her that hurricane season ends in Nov and we would be fine sailing second week of Dec.)

Even more important (at least in my eyes LOL,) does anyone know of a WalMart close to any of our docks? Whenever I am in Hawaii, I like to go to WalMart to stock up on my chocolate covered macadamia nuts to bring back as souveniers. With the excursions, it looks like I may only have time to hunt for them in Maui and Oahu. I thought I had read awhile back on cruise critic that WalMart's and Hilo Hatties have shuttles running from the ports to their stores. Can anyone confirm this and possibly say how much the shuttles run? TIA!
We tip a few dollars to several dollars, depending on how good the tour guide is. As said before though, we do not tip a percentage of the excursion cost. $5 or maybe $10 at the most for the 2 of us.

Us too! Getting down there and sitting won't be nearly as much of a problem as getting back up. Wonder if there are cranes available to assist!

I checked the tracking. Our shirts are in Billings, MT. Hopefully they will get them out on an overnight truck - 6 hour drive from there to our local post office.

Corinna, I hate to bother you but need a favor. If it is not to hard to find to do could you please re-post all links to all the FE lists you made??
I had all your Google FE threads open on my computer waiting for help from my daughter so I could print them...they will only print to line 29 no matter what I do, so she has to convert them to word or excel on my computer. Have been like that since you posted but she had a migraine so I was just waiting to ask for help. Murphy's law computer crashed last night and I lost all my stuff. I have tried to read old posts looking for your original posting of links but so far have not found them...we do chat a lot on here
Anyway of possible please re-post.

Never mind I found them on facebook! Thank heavens I checked the new list because I now have a list of all the items I am short since I had bought for 25 cabins and a few items came in larger packs but a few were right on or a few over. Shopping again :-(

All of the above. Wear it several times so more of us get a chance to see it !

Oh man, nothing like quoting myself but I think I just lost my shirt. It fits my DH so now he's claiming it.

Just so you all know.....it washes BEAUTIFULLY! I tried shrinking it to no avail. It came out of the dryer with ZERO wrinkles. Great job Val!!
