I'm telling you, that is my complaint every day, Monday thru Friday....it drags while I'm at work, then the weekend flies by....and Sunday night, I'm not happy knowing I have to work the next day.....but I agree, when your home or on vacation the time just goes by so quickly.....arrrgg

have a good one

The lake was still covered with ice--one of the park rangers said she had never seen the lake still frozen this late in the spring! Skagway was cold and windy but no rain (yippee). Someone handed us tickets to the Skagway Street Car Tour. The tour was really interesting and I must admit that I probably would never have taken it if I hadn't been given the tixs! Next we cruised Glacier Bay--so beautiful, but a cold, gray, rainy day. Our final stop was Ketchikan and we had gorgeous clear sunny weather in the low 60's (that's 2 years in a row that I've had good weather there). Splurged a bit and bought a "northern lights" bracelet--really pretty. The food was good but not outstanding. Did indulge on the warm chocolate melting cake every night for dessert

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms! Have a special day on Sunday
Welcome back, glad you had a great trip.

Sounds like you had a great time. One of these days I will make it to Alaska, that is on my wish list....you need to post some pictures. I have seen some from other cruisers, but it is just so beautiful. My sister is taking her frist cruise to Alaska in July. They are really looking forward to going.

Glad your back....its been really quiet around here. Stephanie is gone to the World....Chuck has been pretty much missing in action. But now that the weather is better and warmer here, I will be busy with a lot of yard work.

We are thinking of putting the house on the market next year. So we need to get the yard in shape, new floors in both bathrooms and a new kitchen counter. So we are going to be focusing on a lot of house stuff in the next few months.

Wow, I guess I better go before I chat your ear off....

Have a good one
Do I see Florida in your future.....

If you like mussels, you HAVE to do the mussel appetizer! It's great! And Chuck, the hidden Mickey is back in place on Haunted Mansion!
I think the reason we keep not seeing the hidden Mickey is because we go so often. 2x in the last 2 months it was not there, and Mark witnessed it not there on the last trip.

She is doing very well, thank you She has to be on a lead whenever she leaves the house and cannot be allowed to run, but she's doing great. We go back on Thursday to get her stitches out and a check up then we get given some exercises for her/us to do for rehab.

Came back to Philly on the 5th. We are heading back down again on the
22nd until June 9th.

We will be there for the 24 hour opening. We plan to be there at 6:00AM for the opening on the 24th, go to bed early that night and head back to the park around 2AM till close at 6:00AM on the 25th. Let's see if our bodies remember the all nighters from when we were young....

Are you able to fly non-stop or do you have to connect to get to Orlando? Lately just thinking about flying to the east coast makes me tired!

It's amazing how quickly those pups can heal! My cousin nearly lost her pup recently when it was hit by a car--but in no time at all the dog was up and moving again. (of course, that was after some major surgery) My daughter's dog, Lily, had one ACL repaired and then tore the one on the other side. This was a couple years ago and she's been doing great since!

LOL. Well, maybe that's part of the game. It was there both times we've ridden it. I especially look! LOL.
