Well she was adopted so there is always the possibility that she was actually born in Canada.

Post 3000....yay me!

Spent the afternoon at the mall today, kids had a birthday party to attend at Build-A-Bear. We got the kids finished for Christmas, and a lot of the others. Mall was a freakin' zoo. Pretty tired, but trying to get laundry done

How is the health?
I know my bonus too, big fat ZERO. DW will get a nice little check plus gift certificates though.

Health pretty good all and all. One more planned hospital trip Tuesday afternoon for one more test and follow up, but it'll take most the afternoon. Other then that, developoed a cold in the bronchial tubes naturally, so have a very irritating cough, been keeping me and DW up, plus wearing me out in general. At least Tuesday it'll get addressed. Other then that a definite improvement, in particlar, since I've learned my lesson and being carefull to take the blood pressure meds. Going to book my regular doctor for very early into the new year before the meds run out.

Had brunch with Santa today. Kids had a good time and got candy canes that weigh about 6 pounds each.

On a bad note, FIL just had his hip replaced on Wednesday and now MIL is in the hospital overnight tonight. Apparently she has low sodium levels and low bone density. Wife and DS just wen to visit both. Hopefully both get better soon.
Monster canes!! Prayers to your in-laws and family.

As I got closer to the top, and Dave moved to the pub and Stopher left for his own website, I had a chance at the top. But, other than the post padding, I do go back and ready and reply to all the posts as I like you guys. Pathetic, huh?
I think it's a noble effort to try to reply to everyone. I wish I could, but sometimes I have nothing to say, good or otherwise.

Wish I could post more, done respectable numbers since joining, but can't access the boards from work, and usually for a few hours after I get home, gettung dinner ready, homework checking etc.

There would be definitely a demand for it. If someone could figure it out, they would make a fortune.

Thanks guys, I appreciate it. The underwater ones weren't really that good. And yes, the Tiki Bar got a workout.

Congrats to the kids. I'm sure you had nothing to do with it. Well, you probably were the cause for the loss.

Was worried about that when I put on sun screen on my back until a woman came by and volunteered to do it for me. She was about my age so I declined. Would have rather risked injury.

Please don't encourage CJ, at least he forgot the beer (getting old are we?). I hope all the fish in the pictures were looking the other way!
That was a stupid move on our part and rightly chastised. I am so ashamed.

on 3000 posts!

My bonus is they are giving me Christmas eve off. I wasn't going to be here anyhow.

Glad the health is improving. Take those meds.

Not having anything to say never stopped me or most of this bunch. That is one of the things I like about you guys.

Hey CJ, can you ship me some lobsters? Only the free ones though!

No, I don't eat turtles. Crush is safe.

They usually don't ship lobsters from here other than commercially. Agree with Norm, our "lobsters" are good but they don't compare to the real ones from up north.

Our main crustacean delicacy export is stone crab claws. By law only one claw (I think it is the one on the right) can be harvested. The crabs are then thrown back and between 1-2 years, the claw will regenerate large enough to be harvested again. One of the hottest places down here is Joe's Stone Crab. They are open seasonally and make a ton of money. Had lunch there a couple of times but never for dinner. $$$$ for lunch, $$$$$$$$$$$$$$ for dinner.

And no, there will be no bets between the Dolphins and the Pats. A few years ago my then boss and I bet against another office in Boston during a playoff game. Stone Crabs vs. Lobster. Start of the Phins decline and we lost. The crabs cost about $30 but the shipping was over $100. Almost worth flying up to deliver personally.

Glad to hear about the visit with Santa. Sorry to hear about the in-laws. Hopes for a speedy recovery.

Hey dads. That cold turned into bronchitis. However, steroids and antibiotics have made me a new man. A Canadian man, but a new one nonetheless. Hope y'all are well. 14 days to Christmas cruise on the Wonder

Good evening. We made it home this evening against my strong protest. Probably not much point going back the past week aside from what little I caught while I was away, so prayers, congratulations, condolences and happy birthdays.

Time to adjust to being back in the real world.

Was supposed to have New Years Eve off, giving me a 5 day vacation, but no dice, big boss recinded all the 24th/31st off. Work comes first, family second. (betcha he's off though)It's our busiest time of year, you would think a bonus would make a nice gesture for all the harder work, stress and craziness that comes this time of year. ah well, we hardly get by, what with the 3-4 billion in profuts we make.

Glad you are feeling better, and vastly improved to boot.

Had to cram too much into the dryers, still damp, now that the other machines are free, spread them out , but got to stay up longer. Threw Tintin on the DVD player, cracked open a beer...
