IT'S A BRIGHT SUNNY DAY

Friday morning has brought another day of sunshine to the pacific northwest. Yes, Thursday was also a sunny day...sunny but cold.  I worked my normal 7a-330p shift, raced home, fed Gabi and closed up the blinds, turned the porch lights on and headed back on the freeway to Gig Harbor for the seminar that was being held last night.  I was brave and drove over there alone, as it was still light and not raining last night.  It was so beautiful going over the Narrows Bridge...the lights on the new bridge were on but it was twlight and the effect was breath taking, with the sun setting in the background, etc.  You would have had to be there, I guess....  I should have set on on the seminar, it was about hormone replacement & your health.  But I was so tired, I headed back home about 7:45pm after I was sure that all who were coming were there.  You see, when I work at these events I'm what you call the "greeter."

I got a call from Lori at the travel agency yesterday, and I'm really bummed out.  So far only two couples have signed up for my 2nd Alaska 7 day cruise scheduled for next August 17th thru the 24th.  We need 8 cabins sold to get the group rates and the first deposit is due Monday November 20th.  After that Royal Caribbean can take away the cabins the travel agency has held for us.  So....if there's anyone out there that would like to be apart of this group, call Lori or Erin at 253-383-8000 and ask about "Linda's 2nd Alaska Cruise."  They've got all the details. 

I want to again invite all that read my journal to visit my friend Joni at;  http://journals.aol.com/jonibooks1991/jonis-life-now/         Joni and I (and of course Barbara) all went to grade school and high school together.  We haven't seen Joni very often since our high schools days as she moved out of our home town and to add to that works different shifts all the time.  But we hope to change that after Joni and I get to retire, next year ????  maybe ????  Anyway go sayhi to Joni and don't forget to add her to your alerts.   Thanks.....

Well, I'm going to close here for now.  I'm going to a meeting at 1pm today about Medicare supplements (I hope I don't fall asleep)  but it's something I must get busy thinking  about since the Medicare season for me is just around the corner. 

Have a good Friday....we here is western Washington are going to enjoy our sunshine because according to the weatherman it's not going to last the whole weekend.   Linda

The weather has been a real improvement ... especially for the spirit. :-)  The cruise sounds like fun but, even the group rate couldn't beat my rate.  Besides, it's kind of hard to think about travel until Sonny gets another job.  His plant closed and everyone lost their jobs.

Yes it is so nice to see the sunshine and no wind.  Thanks for the plug for my journal, I do enjoy doing it now and keeping in touch.  By the way let me know what you find out about the medicare thing, I'm looking into all that also, trying to figure out which one is best.  Can't wait only about 9 more months.  Have a great day. Joni

Have a bright and shiny weekend.  It's sunny and windy again today.  At least it's 70 degrees.  
Too bad more people haven't signed up for your cruise.  Maybe more will between now  and then.
Have a good weekend.  Barb

You must have been tired after the long day you had! I'd love to do the trip but I can't next year. I hope you can get a few more people on it. Have a great weekend! Jeannette xx

We have sun for the next 4 days or so.  I think it would drive me absolutely nuts to live where all it did was rain.  Of course, I think I suffer from SADS (Seasonal affective disorder).  Its not a major problem, I just get depressed if I go too long without the sun.
