You know you're getting old when your fantasies are about bathrooms.

Re: What are your Labor Day plans?

We were supposed to be enjoying ourselves on Edisto Island, but an ear/sinus infection has me feeling too dizzy to move around. I'll be spending some of today like I did yesterday--with the Brother Cadfael DVDs and novels that I asked DH to acquire to cheer me up (and they got me investigating things like the history of Wales and Shropshire...and planning more places to visit when we go to Britain in 2008). If I'm up to it tomorrow, we'll go on a short nature walk on the beach, or on a boardwalk or kayak through a tidal marsh.

It doesn't feel like a holiday weekend because DH teaches on Monday. But he did have Thursday off for the hurricane that didn't happen--just gentle rains for most of the day and a few gusty breezes--no harm done and we needed the rain.

I will drive back monday morning for my last 71 days in newark from the Raleigh area. was gonna go sunday and I thought WHY?? Traffic? Heck I will enjoy a real nice sunday and leave monday morning. Then I will be back two weeks later and take 5 sick days. It should be an enjoyable last 3 and 1/2 months. Fun being a short timer with ALL THE PAPERS in and approved.

Re: What are your Labor Day plans?

He doesn't get Columbus Day or Presidents Day off either. So much for spoiled teachers! But this is college--I don't think I had such holidays off in college either.

My son teaches in a district with a lot of Jewish students and teachers, so he gets Yom Kippur off (annual day of atonement). This year it makes a 3-day weekend at the end of September--I'm going to be spending that weeknd in Massachusetts with my son (got my e-tickets today). I need to start looking for a B&B, or decide if we'd rather go camping. Or, hmmm, rent an RV and go to the Cape?

Re: What are your Labor Day plans?

I hurt my back surfing last Monday, ignored it and surfed again on Wednesday, and had three-hour piano gigs on Fri and Saturday, and now I can hardly move. I'll be doing nothing that can't be done in a chair.

Retire earlier!

Hmmm, we forgot to tell Helen how cold the water was in Hawaii. I guess we'll get a trip report in a few weeks. I'm looking forward to that.

Re: What are your Labor Day plans?

I got down to our weekend place and discovered that Ernesto blew all of the planking off our neighbors dock (see cellphone pic). The upside was that about five crab pots were hung up in the pilings. We "rescued" two dozen blue crabs and steamed them for a nice appetizer before dinner.

Re: What are your Labor Day plans?

What a great weekend!* Beautiful weather in central Wisconsin and great times with great friends.* Still, if the "w**kers" would stay in their cubes instead of being out crowding the roads, restauants, lakes, etc., it could be even better.* Oh well, they'll be back in the harness tomorrow and we'll still be enjoying............

Re: What are your Labor Day plans?

DW and I kayaked from Tybee Island across to Little Tybee and along the ocean side to the far end of Little Tybee. 9 miles round trip plus some easy surfing in 2 foot glassy surf. We saw one 6' shark and a couple of big Tarpon jumping along the way. Only downside was that our usually "private" 3 mile long beach on Little Tybee had at least 8 or 10 people on it.

A coincidence...my friends in Western Massachusetts called last night, partly to describe how their community dock on their smallish lake was destroyed by Ernesto. All we got here on the central SC coast was an all-day much-needed rain.

ASIDE
Anybody have any idea why some of the pictures on the forum display for me, but others just show the little paperclip and title, which, when clicked, show a message about not being able to view pictures on this board? It doesn't seem to matter which board, but I have noticed that I can always see pictures posted by Cut-Throat (there may well be other patterns that I haven't yet discerned). I can see the picture that T-Al posted above, but not his recent surfing pix
