Aunt Mabel's Bermuda Cruise, May 26 - June 5, 2019

The second youngest member of my Father's siblings, the last one remaining, died at 97 years of age in Wainwright Alberta. Mabel Smith and her husband Jim owned and operated a successful shoe store for most of their adult lives. They never had children, I met them one time when they visited Dad and their other siblings living in the Toronto area. That was 70 years ago.
Well Aunt Mabel left some money to her brothers' and sister's children and some of us are taking this cruise with a portion of the Legacy. [This is the first time this has ever happened.]

[Off subject on May 16, 2019 Conrad Black received a Presidential pardon from Donald Trump. It was in all the papers and media.]

The preparation for our cruise is complete: we'll fly to Newark New Jersey on May 25 and check into the Country Inn and Suites for the night and then taxi to Cape Liberty by noon on May 26 and board the Celebrity Summit for the 11 day cruise to Bermuda and back. Marilyn, Buster, Joan and Garnet are flying on May 26 and Terryl, Jeanette and I go a day early just in case something untoward raises its ugly head on the day of. Terryl, knowing all about changes to flight schedules, feels safety should be adhered to if at all possible. We've pre-arranged a tour of Bermuda on Day One as well as a catamaran and snorkelling episode on Day Three in Bermuda before we sail north to Boston and Bar Harbor, Maine.
On May 25 Terryl and I will be with Lyft on the way to YYZ at 08:00 to meet Jeanette and check in for our flight.

[Off subject on May 23, 2019 Donald J Trump lost on two Court decisions this week. One was that his Tax filings for the last six years must be turned over to Congress, and the other was his law suit against Deutsche Bank if they turned over his financial documents to Congress.]
