Have You Missed Me?

Hello, Dear Ones! That's right, have you missed me? Did you even know that I have been gone for the past 17 days?

If you were wondering why I haven't commented on your posts it's because I've been out of the country having a ball! I do want you to know how much I appreciate you all who visit me and ordinarily I really try to answer every single comment you make to my blog. But since I've been away so long, please excuse me this time. I am going to read every single comment you've written to me and I always just love hearing from you.

I did prepost a few times so you wouldn't forget me and will start up my blogging in a few days after all of the dirty laundry is washed and I'm a bit less fuzzy headed. Well, I'm always a little goofy, but you know what I mean.

Mr. Precious and I were on a 10 day cruise to Croatia, Greece and Turkey and then we spent a few days in Venice. Marvelous time!! This was our little cruise ship - The Splendour of the Seas. Not as big as some but we thought it was just right! I think I've gained 50 pounds! :)
I'll share some snaps and stories with you in a few days.

And...

I am always thinking of you, Dear Ones, and you know how I feel about Bathroom Snapping - it's my business! :) I'm leaving you with a snap I took in our stateroom bathroom. Now this was very hard to do, Dear Most Marveling Ones, and I would advise you never to try this at home. After all, I am a professional! :)


I love you all and can't wait to get back to visiting you again and seeing what you all have been up too!
Until then...
Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Travelin' Man ( just loved that cute Ricky Nelson)


I'm a travelin' man
I've made a lot of stops all over the world
And in every port I own the heart
Of at least one lovely girl

I've a pretty Seniorita waiting for me
Down in old Mexico
If you're ever in Alaska stop and see
My cute little Eskimo

Oh my sweet Fraulien down in Berlin town
Makes my heart start to yearn
And my China doll down in old Hong Kong
Waits for my return

Pretty Polynesian baby over the sea
I remember the night
When we walked in the sands of the Waikiki
And I held you oh so tight

Oh my sweet Fraulien down in Berlin town
Makes my heart start to yearn
And my China doll down in old Hong Kong
Waits for my return

Pretty Polynesian baby over the sea
I remember the night
When we walked in the sands of the Waikiki
And I held you oh so tight

Oh, I'm a travelin' man
Yes, I'm a travelin' man
~ sung by Ricky Nelson...sigh
