    How's by you? Long time no see. Perhaps you're on a cruise, seeing the sea, etc.
    Hope you're not too under the weather to post. Maybe it's your computer that's
    under the weather? Got a virus perhaps.

    Anyhoo, hope to hear from you soon.

    Hi Rock, Thanks for the shout out! :) . I have been under the weather for about a month. That urinary tract infection was unusually difficult to tame.

    I still have some pain and am taking small amounts of antibiotic but over all, it's a lot better.

    Hope you're feeling better too. Are you looking forward to your Thanksgiving dinner. I know I am! We get a mostly prepared meal from a restaurant that we finish cooking. Turkey and all that good stuff. I did just bake a frozen pumpkin pie. Easy as pie!

    You know what, I've never been on a cruise. I think I would feel a little claustrophobic out to sea. I'd probably have a panic attack.

    I am trying to think of a new song game for us all to play. Maybe my brain will start to function again after the pie.

    Good to hear from you. GB

    Hi Kiddo

    Glad to hear from you. And to hear that you are feeling somewhat better.

    Regarding the question of a cruise, I hate to sound like an attorney, but it all
    depends on one's definition of "cruise". My wife and I went for a boat ride on
    the Pacific. It lasted several hours. We were seasick before we got outta the harbor.

    That was in the 60s. The idea was to sail from Ventura to one of the Channel
    islands and then back. Supposed to take several hours. We went with another
    couple. The ample picnic lunch packed by the gals was never touched.

    The ship was interesting though. It was a model of a clipper ship; formerly
    owned by Jimmy Cagney. Clipper ships were fast sailing vessels used to haul
    cargo during the 19th century. They had 3 masts.

    There must have been 2 or 3 dozen passengers. Almost everydobby on
    board was hanging over the rail of this elegant ship.

    As for Thanksgiving, Gordon and I don't observe the holidays. My family is
    all dead or thousands of miles away. His relatives have their own families.
    I used to eat turkey, but about a decade ago I developed some sort of allergy to
    the stuff. It made me hiccup something fierce. Eventually induced vomiting.
    Don't go near it anymore.

    I remember great holidays meals from my childhood. Both my parents were
    wonderful cooks. My dad owned his own restaurant. But every holiday was
    to the tune of my folks fighting, so I have happier memories of the Normal Rockwell
    Saturday Evening Post cover than of my actual experiences.

    I 'spect things will be more festive at your house.
