A Great Celebration!

Yesterday was a great friend's birthday luncheon!

I love these ladies!
Priscilla, me, Carole (seated), Elaine, and Bev

Better gal pals one could never wish to have in this or any other lifetime.  I have lots of gal pals but these are the ones that will always have my back.  No jealousy or bickering or any harsh words between any of us, just not happening.  I cannot think of anything I would not do for any of them.

Today I will have lunch with the duck and close the suitcase.  I am taking photos and will show you how I pack for a cruise in just a carry on.  It's quite easy actually, you'll see tomorrow.  I take plenty of clothes too, plus two pairs of shoes and the ones I wear.  Just takes a bit of planning on what you want to wear.

Boy howdy have we had some storms lately in the afternoons.  I know that is par for the course in summer but really some hum dingers.  Like yesterday for example.  The (self appointed) mayor (of the pool) was cooking out and wanted to know if I wanted a hamburger, why yes, thank you very much, but I feared the storms would stop him from delivering it to my door.  Lucky for me the sky cleared up just in time and I got to enjoy a lovely dinner.  Wasn't that nice?

And so my friends thank you for reading today and come back tomorrow for more.  I shall try to keep you entertained whenever possible...


  1. Where would we be without our besties? Don't ever want to know the answer to that one. It's been a a tough week here... Or 3 months, really. But it will get better.

    The (sa) mayor (otp) is NUTSO. But surely he already knows this. ;)

    big hugs, my friend xoxo

  2. What a bust social calender you've got! Have another great day and I can't wait to see your packing tips tomorrow.

  3. Bee, You ladies look wonderful. Happy birthday to your friend. I know you all enjoyed that time. Yes, that was very kind of the mayor to make you dinner. :):) I am going to come by tomorrow for sure...I want to see your packing. Blessings for a great lunch with Duck. xoxo,Susie

  4. Good morning my wonderful friend. Entertain, You always entertain me with love, caring and fun. I enjoyed talking with you last night and it was so good that I slept in until 8:30 this morning. Ha,ha,ha. I guess I'd better have a cold shower to wake me up. Ha,ha,ha.
    Tomorrow I'll be keeping an eye on how you pack for a cruise. I know I pack to much, that's what Mary Lou tells me.
    Have a an enjoyable lunch with the Duck and once again, say hi from us. See ya beautiful.


  5. Wonderful friends like that are a treasure!

    Glad you enjoyed your burger, and he got it to you before the storm hit!

    hugs and happy suitcase closing day:)

  6. I saw that shot on Facebook yesterday. It's great to have gal pals. I so agree. I've a few that I love dearly too, and you happen to be one of them. Such fun.

    I can pack pretty good too, but I'll be back tomorrow to see how a pro does her packing.

    Have a fabulous day honey. Big hugs to you and my very best to Roche. ♥♥♥

  7. Best friends are the cream of life. I am blessed with some very special ones.

    Great idea in the packing show and tell. I have done two club programs on that.

    Say hi to OCD for me.

    Big hugs, honey...

  8. Ciao!!!
    enjoy your lunch with Ch., and I ll read about your packing for the cruise!"
    Marvellous gals pals, you are lucky...your nice character gains you nice friends!!!

    Have a happy Sunday!

  9. Friends like that are a real treasure!
    I just got home from a week at Mexico Beach (FL) with my family so I am catching up on blogs. Glad I got back in time to read about the cruise! Have a wonderful time -of course, you will!

  10. You lost me at two pairs of shoes. There's my travel shoes with which I wear socks to go through airport security, and that pair I can wear with or without socks on excursions. Then sandals, workout shoes, and a pair of dress shoes. And maybe another pair of dress shoes. And maybe flip-flops. Hmm, I see the problem now. You and your friends take a terrific picture!

  11. So great to have our Gal Pals!!

  12. Two pairs of shoes?! I couldn't do it. Honestly, I couldn't.

  13. I love the ladies ! you all look so fabulous !

    cheers, parsnip
