"Oh my bags are packed, I'm ready to go..."

Well, they're not really completely  packed.  All the hanging stuff is ironed and still hanging.  They will go in the garment bag just before we walk out the door. And I have two outfits out, and will decide which one to wear based on the weather in the morning.  It's been a little cooler here today and we got about 5 minutes of rain this afternoon. 

I have never been able to figure out the video camcorder thingy I got as a prize from AOL UnCut Videos, so any videos I take will be taken with my regular digital camera.  But I did that last year and they turned out fine.  I might just take it along, it's not very big and play with it a little.  However, I don't have the proper gadget to unload it into my computer so.....you all will just have to come over to my house if you want to see any videos I take with it, unless I can figure out what I need and am able to buy the proper gismo.  Maybe I'll let Lanny look it over and he can advise me what I need to get.

I hate to leave my little kitty again. But I know she will be in good hands in my son's care. She really likes him, at least I think she does.  When he comes over here she crawls all over him and acts like she likes him. Even if he does call her "smooched face."

Well, folks that's all...I'm going to head down the hall with my book & my kitty.  It's going to be an early morning tomorrow.  I've got the alarm set for 6:30am.   By the way, I've been reading "Angela's Ashes"...have any of you read that book?  I was able to find the video on eBay and that should be here by the time I get back and by then I'll be done with the book.  I'll be anxious to see how the movie compares with the book. 

Until next time.......Linda

Have a great trip Linda, hope lanni can get the video camera to work.  I remember something about Angela's ashes.  I read many books sometimes 5 or more a week, so I would have to look at the cover and see if I have read it.  Currently, I am reading Audrey Howard, Nora Roberts and Debbie Macomber, all of whom I really love to read.  Have a great holiday.

Have a great cruise! I'm as eager as you since Connie and I leave tomorrow for ours. At least you don't have to worry about dodging hurricanes in Alaska! Can't wait to hear about your trip when you get back!
