Well, so far we have been to Universal Studios twice and Sea World yesterday. Tonight we are heading back to Universal Studios to go see the Blue Man Group at 8:00 pm and then do some pm shopping! Tomorrow, we are going to do the Gatorland thing, and get me some of those gator bites ,(taste just like chicken).

Can you believe my luck, I just watched the weather channel and they just said that a low is forming in the gulf and that it can come over Florida as a tropical Depression dumping 4-6 inches of rain here on Thursday; nice...

Hope all is well with everyone and I'll check in again soon! TTFN...
Sounds like you guys are still having loads of fun, in spite of the rain =]

That's wonderful!!

I hope everyone is doing great and has had a wonderful day so far
That's fabulous, HmG!! I wish you the best! Good luck tomorrow =]

I could use some prayers for guidance, please. I got some more unexpected news about my father's unresolved estate. The current (second) executor is quitting; the first executor, who embezzled five figures from the estate, is still hiding out somewhere; the estate lawyer can't make a claim for the bond issued to her as executor until she's found and brought to court. And that can't be done unless I agree to take over as executor. I honestly don't know if I have the time or money to pick up the ball. My share of the estate, before the bond is claimed, is less than a third of what I've already paid in legal expenses to try to untangle the mess. The bond is for less than half of the amount she actually stole (before legal fees are deducted). I can't shuttle back and forth between Massachusetts and Florida if I'm required to be there in person. I don't know if I can afford the time and money to keep pursuing this, yet the thought of letting her get away with her thievery is unbearable. It's going to be hard to keep this off my mind while we're away. It'll be a very hard decision to make.
Praying for you, Merry!

Last day of school. Saw some good friends retire and move on. Gonna miss them! Had a great ceremony for them and it was a good day...

Bad news...
My trusty companion of 12 years is at a critical point. Almost 1.5 years ago, they told us he had congestive heart failure and we would likely have been 6 weeks to 6 months....and here we are. He is a big dog who has exceeded his life expectancy and his back legs are just about to quit. We are trying one more thing at the dr.'s recommendation, and then comes a tough decision. My love, his trust in us, and friendship for my dog is about to be tested. I'm going to have to make a decision....and it's going to result in him leaving. I know...it's what's best for him....

but it sure hurts us....

Prayers and thoughts appreciated....
Oh, coach, I know what you are going through as I am going through the same thing with Mouse. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your trusty companion!

Good evening, MMC!

The long day I knew I was going to have today was made even longer by the lack of sleep I had last night. Is it too early to call it a night? I am going to try to stay up at least for another hour or so as there are a few things I still need to do tonight. The county has sprayed for mosquitoes three out of the past five nights - that tells you how bad it has been here. Was actually able to walk outside and look at the gardens when I got home - nary a bit! Yay!! I might be able to sit outside on the patio and enjoy my morning coffee - it would be nice! I stopped at Goodwill this morning and found two Christmas books I did not have and a Mikasa Christmas bell - made my day!

MERRY dreams!!!

Good evening, snowflake!

I am tired, but well! How are you doing? We haven't gotten any storms since Friday - the ones that were forecast for us just ended up being drizzle. Good thing, too, as the ground is water logged still and the trees were dropping leaves fast and furious do to the soaking. I just checked the radar and it looks like what you are getting could end up over here by Thursday in the early a.m. Stay safe! How is Harlowe handling the storms?
