Tomorrow is the day I have to tell my girls Good Bye again. They know! Mama has boxes and her stuff out of the room where I hide it and have been going in that room a lot tonight. All I haven't brought out is my life jacket and big suitcase.. Man, I sure hate leaving them for this long and I hate it more and more.

Anyway, EVERYONE, have a great Christmas or whatever hoilday you celebrate and I will see all of you NEXT YEAR! May have a few minutes to check in, in the morning before I leave since the boat is down here so I won't have to leave at dark-thirty in the morning. My Captain said he should be here about 9 to pick me up.

Merry Christmas and happy New Year to you, Laura! I will be thinking and praying for you and your kitties while you are away!

Merry *Marine* Christmas!

Do you guys have a Christmas Tree with Lights up on the Pilot House?

Hope there's a Tree SOMEwhere on the boat!
And where does everyone hang their Socks?

PoorSanta - I HOPE the Cap'n/Pilot shuts down one of the engines
as soon as Santa & the Reindeer show up on the Radar ...
be a shame to burn Santa's nose onna hot exhaust stack.

:D :love::love: & {{{Hugs}}}

Our company don't allow outside decorations like that but we are free to decorate the inside as much as we want. We do have.. rather we did have a really nice tree with beautiful decorations... rather it is still there or not is anybody's guess. We'll find out when we get back. Door knobs are great for stockings! Hang one on each persons bedroom door.

The boat is down here again, I won't even have a 30 minute ride to the boat.. I LOVE those kind of crew changes. MY Captain is suppose to pick me up but I got so much stuff to take back this time, it all may not fit so Rie is on standby in case I need her to take me instead. He should be here about
9am.. My girls are all over me this morning.. Sure going to miss them! :love:

Bye friends, I will miss all of you too!

Bye, Bye Laura - tell your babies just 9 more trips and maybe Mom will retire! :)

Carole, she cooks for the crew on ships on the Mississippi River - not sure if I have the right river...but southern USA.

Here's a thread she posted with pictures: http://petoftheday.com/talk/showthread.php?t=150395&highlight=Laura%27s+Babies
