And today it is off to a Casino for me. It is further than 5 miles and that is why I like to spend the night down there. Actually ii is right at 100 miles but the traffic is always bad in both directions and that is why I prefer to spend a night or 2. Will be there until Friday with some friends. Sure hope the gambling is better there than it was on the ship earlier this month.

Tonight is the season finale of Survivor and since we all watch it, I am sure gambling will be curtailed this evening for Survivor watching.

Good luck to Paul when you go to the Casino too.

Hi all!

Ann ~ good luck at the casino!
I want to see "Book Club" too as the preview looked really funny. I did see "Finding Your Feet" yesterday & it was really good. It's an English film with shots of London & Rome in it & a good story.

Grandpaul ~ good luck to you & have fun with your buddies.
I gambled yesterday that I wouldn't get a ticket when I didn't pay for parking but lost, $7 is the penalty.

You all have a nice day. It's a warm one here.

~ Jo ~

Can't be any left after yesterday. I guess I'll have to mow the lawn for the first time. Maybe the last time this year too.

Skill, not luck. I picked up my son who is a rest. therapist at our medical center this morning. He works 7 PM till 7 AM. I met him by the Emergency Dept. entrance and pulled into the parking area and there had to be a dozen police cars there. An officer had a cardiac arrest while working but he was doing good this morning. Not the kind of arrest an officer wants.

He's doing fine. I'll see if I can check on him when I go to work today if he is still in the hospital. I don't think he will be though.Perfect weather here today and yesterday. But then you know what that means for the weekend. Our next door neighboring University's lacrosse team is playing for the NCAA college championship this weekend one run Boston. Hard to believe Albany is one of the final four. Have a great weekend.

Good morning all. I hope everyone has a great Friday and a super Memorial Day weekend with wherever their respective plans take them. Holli and I will be headed to the Dodger game tonight to see our boys in Blue battle the Padres. Tomorrow I have a single shift of cruise fund overtime with Sunday finding us celebrating Holli's sister's and her hubby's anniversary. On Monday, it will be back to work for me so I can save the holiday day. One thing to remember though is Monday is not the "Real" Memorial Day. That day is the 30th which also surprisingly the big 60 for me.

Have a great weekend all.....

I have found since I've retired time has increased speed. But that happens when you are having fun. Work was rarely like that. I've never been happier.
