Oldiesmann: Final update on this, for those not on Seniors and Friends... I got the car. Similar payments to what I had with the Malibu, but for only 4 years instead of 6.Dec 11 2019 1:45am
Oldiesmann: Yet another update on the car situation... Going to look at a 2012 Hyundai Sonata tomorrow (Tuesday). Hoping to get it, assuming everything looks good and I can get affordable paymentsDec 03 2019 12:04am
Oldiesmann: Accident was my fault. Went through what I thought was a yellow light and it turned red before I got through the intersection. Got hit by cross traffic on the front right sideOct 26 2019 10:34am
Marilyn: So is your insurance going to foot the cost of an new car for you. was the accident the other guy's falt or yours?Oct 22 2019 11:42am
Oldiesmann: Update on the car situation... Initial estimate was that the car was repairable. However, after further inspection at a body shop, the insurance company determined that the cost of repairs is about $1200 more than the car is worthOct 16 2019 10:28pm
Oldiesmann: For those who didn't see the message on seniorsandfriends, I was involved in an accident this morning. I'm fine and my car should be repairable, but I've had the car less than 48 hours and am not looking forward to the costsSep 30 2019 12:33pm
Carol: Praise: I have no cancer after undergoing a skin throat surgery today! Everyone was surprised - - prayers answered. So very blessed.Aug 13 2019 5:25pm
Carol: Today is another drive to the VA. We have found a little part that is not on the fast and furious freeway. Whoever thinks that growth in a city is a good thing is wrong. Two grands came for an overnight and their visits mean so much to us. /b]Aug 07 2019 10:46am
Carol: I hope everyone is feeling well and happy. Aug 07 2019 10:42am

Further updates on this... I do still plan to finish the changes in the coming months but have been busy with other things so I haven't had a chance to finish copying over the remaining pages.
I'm also not entirely sure if I'll be setting up the redirects as originally planned - it would be nice but I'm not too familiar with the pattern-matching syntax used for the redirection so I'll have to see if I can get someone to help me with that (although it's not terribly important since those pages aren't visited that much anyway).

Well, after days of wondering what on earth had happened to this place, I went to CP's main page, clicked on forums, and there you were! I guess something happened and November didn't get locked. Also I didn't get any notices, email or otherwise, but all's well that ends well, and here I am!
I won't attempt to comment on each post just will say it's good to see you all here posting about your life events, good and not-so-good. We are doing fine, I'm still going to therapy, have felt better since Saturday. So I hope to continue to feel better!
No, Carol, I'm not ready for Christmas, but I seldom am ready early! I have been doing a lot of playing in paint! Doing acrylic pours can get addictive, and there are so many different ways to do it, all producing different results. I have everything ready for this weekend, as Daughter Kerri is coming from Salina, and Diane thinks she can get away from the store and come up to "play" with us, too!
Sorry you had to forego the big gathering, but I sure understand. I am noticing more and more dimness in my vision due to the MD. So I'm wanting to paint as much and as fast as I can while I can still see!
Marilyn, I see you have decided to take Keith to California with you, and I wish you well with that venture. I hope he feels well and the dementia stays at bay during that time. Please stay safe!
Jacqueline, I'm happy to see you back here posting. We need all of our people, and miss those who don't post. Like you, I miss our dear Larry every day, and wish him a wonderful first Christmas in heaven.
Ellie, it sounds like you had a very enjoyable cruise with interesting stops.
Carol, we had only a tiny skiff of snow on Thanksgiving eve, so the big one missed us. We do need moisture, though.
Well, now that I have found my way back, I will see you soon! [/size][/color]

Greetings Carol I am replying to your message from November 14, as I have just read it. Sorry for not responding sooner than now.
And the reply is also for you as well Janet.
It is a very wet and windy day on the Isle of Man. Which is what made me think of the warm weather on our cruise. We sailed from Southampton in the UK. and we had three days at sea day. Our passage was through the English Channel and then across the Bay of Biscay, going past the coasts of France and Spain during the three days. There was a Force nine gale with winds of fifty five miles an hour, or 90 kilometres an hour. The ship shuddered a bit, but as P&O's Britannia is a big ship and with stabilisers, the journey was not as rough as we thought it might be. After thirty six hours the seas moderated.
The first port we stopped at was Madeira, a very pretty Island with lovely flowers and shrubs. We enjoyed our day there, having visited Madeira before. When we left the Island, we had five days at sea as we were crossing the Atlantic on our way to the Caribbean.
The first Island we stopped at was Antigua where we took an adapted tour of the Island, for passengers with disabilities. Next day we stopped in St Kitts and we decided to stay around the town centre near the port. On the next day we stopped in St Lucia and we took a taxi ride to tour the town, which we enjoyed. On Thursday we stopped at St Vincent and took another taxi ride of the town, once more very enjoyable.
On Friday our last port of call was Barbados and we took a tour of the Island, again an adapted tour. And like Antigua, the tour of Barbados was very enjoyable. We stayed on the Britannia overnight before the flight to Gatwick, London on the Saturday.
We enjoy cruising and the staff onboard are wonderful with able bodied and disabled passengers. They cannot do enough for you to make your cruise a memorable holiday. Ellie
