The time is what o'clock?

We were on a Caribbean cruise last week. There was a woman on the ship who looked exactly like Claudia. I mentioned Claudia in my previous post. I didn't talk to her, but we smiled at one another frequently when we met. Almost a gift.

Driving home we had to detour because someone had a wreck and damaged an overpass bridge girder, thus closing Highway 55. We were detoured into a single lane of traffic down a rural, winding two lane. Semi trucks for miles and miles wending through a rural town in Arkansas. Took us longer than ever to drive home. Finished last load of laundry at 9:00 p.m. last night and collapsed in our own wonderful bed.

Woke to an early phone call from a neighbor that another neighbor had passed away and the funeral was in an hour. So I rushed through getting myself ready (honey has a cold), and arrived at the funeral parlor fifteen minutes early. Sat there another hour and fifteen minutes, wondering what was going on. DUH! Daylight Savings time, and we hadn't adjusted our clocks when we got home! 

Now we are off to replenish the refrigerator and car gas tank. I will post photos and recap our trip later. Always on the go. You'd think I'd lose weight. At least I didn't gain any.

Hi Linda. Glad you had a getaway. Guess what? The day after the time change, I was having a big breakfast for visiting houseguests and some family members. The latter were late and I was getting antsy. When I called them to see what happened, they said, "But you said 8:30 a.m." Yah. I DID say 8:30 and that's what my clock said. But it was really only 7:30 a.m. Grrrrrrr. I really, REALLY dislike the time change.
Hope all is well. Susan

Hope you enjoyed your getaway. Looking forward to hearing about the trip.

Time marches backwards, at least in the fall.

That lookalike was not a coincidence. We live on in the memories of others, even though we're gone. So appropriate for Claudia's poem that you shared last post.

I'm sorry to hear of the passing of your neighbor. I hope you had a fun and relaxing time on your cruise. I'm sure your own bed was a welcome sight after the detour on the way home.

Linda--If you didn't gain any weight on your cruise, that's an incredible feat. (I've never been on a cruise, but from what I gather, it's a 24-hour buffet.)
