Hey Jo,

We did watch Like Father, it was pretty good. My parents watched it too and my father goes, "Wait.....I have to eat my meals with people I don't know? But I don't want to! I'm not social!" Hahaha we didn't tell him that we have YTD and we can have just a table with us 4 at it, we are letting him sweat it. Does that make us mean?

So just because your cruising in October it's a Halloween cruise? That's what was confusing. Coming from a Halloween scrooge I can't imagine celebrating it for more than one day. I usually hide from it all on that one night.

I don't have Netflix. So haven't seen it. I was watching a sappy Hallmark movie last night and they filmed a Hallmark movie on one of the big Royal Caribbean ships, it airs on Sunday.

Yeah, for some reason Carnival decided that all the October sailings would have Halloween festivities on them, which is cool with me. I like Halloween, I use to decorate for it, until I decided that was too much work. Now I just say my black cat is my year-round Halloween decoration.

We don't have traditional TV as it isn't offered in our area (we live in the Boondocks) so we just have Netflix and Hulu. It is great until the internet goes down, like it did yesterday. They are doing road repairs and apparently our DSL line got cut. Yes, we have DSL internet, as like I said we live in the Boondocks and that is all that is offered here!

I love Hallmark movies, especially at Christmas time. Sometimes I just hang out at mom's so I can watch them!

Well, exciting news....my uncle is now going to join the Dysfunctional Family Vacation aboard the Dream next year! Whoo hoo! It will be his first cruise, and he is a fun-loving person, so I am sure he will have a good time. With him and my Dad onboard together this could really get interesting!

We had some crazy rain yesterday that caused some flooding. It was insane, we only had a 20% chance and that 20% chance sure came and hit us hard! Hopefully it will lay off now for a bit, we don't need anymore rain for a while.

Tomorrow is Friday, yay! Anyone have big weekend plans?

Hi all!


pirate ~ oh that should be fun on your family cruise! I was on Vista for Hallowe'en & it was a lot of fun, it was amazing some of the costumes people brought on board!
Oh DSL is what we call dial up, over the phone lines right? We're in the country too so used to
have that.



It poured rain here last night & also rained a bit during the day cancelling our seniors' picnic in the park. The day before there was flooding in parts of Toronto causing 6 feet of water to build up in an elevator so 2 guys had to be rescued plus a street car in a tunnel filled with water so those people had to break out! Luckily nothing bad happened here.


I think we're going to a fish fry at a local museum Sat. & on Sunday I'm going to meet for the 1st time, a first cousin one removed found through Ancestry.com. She's visiting from Glasgow although she was born here.


Betty ~ I'm not much of a Hallowe'en person either but do buy treats that I like as we usually don't get any kids here. I don't put out a jack-o'- lantern like I did when the kids were here.
My friend & I went to see Mamma Mia & really enjoyed it, the popcorn was okay too but not hot buttered like in the big theatres but then the price for a show is only $7 .



Have a good weekend.


~ Jo ~

Jo, DSL is much faster than dial up (thank goodness!) but yeah it runs thru the phone lines. I wish we had another alternative here for internet, but we only plan to live here a few more years. When we get where we plan to we will have more options!

We never have trick or treaters, thank goodness. I’m NOT a fan of kids, so even if we lived in a city I’d probably be a Halloween Scrooge and keep my lights off so they wouldn’t bug me! I’m terrible, I know. I just like Halloween for the pumpkins, black cats, and witches.

My weekend plans consist of ponies and swimming, if it doesn’t rain.

Tomorrow is FRIDAY!!!

Hello!!

Another day, another dollar to be made. I wish it was still the weekend! I looked at my pool yesterday and decided to jump in right before the monsoon (ok, fine, heavy rainstorm), hit, oh my it was COLD! All the rain we have gotten really made it chilly. I also saw that 2 of the legs are pretty rusted, as well as one part of the frame, so we need to repair that. Surprisingly it’s cheaper to buy a whole new pool (since they are clearance right now) than the parts, can you believe that!?
