    No diving this trip,just water sports and snorkeling on a day off the boat so the wife can enjoy herself.

    Re: Trip planned

    I will turn 50 in April. I will go to Havana again next year.

    Don't forget to have a Daiquiri at Floridita (maybe mojito at Bodeguita del medio). Next door from the left side you have Habanos shop in first flor. Cigars by the stick. If you follow down this street Obispo about five minutes walk you will come to the hotel Ambos Mundos from the right side. Turn right and you are on the street calle Mercaderes. Folow this road you have great cigar shop in hotel Conde la villanueva. In the end of this street is Plaza Vieja. Here you can have the best espresso coffee in town at caffe Escorial. Plaza de Armas is not far away. In short beautiful. Enjoy.

    Re: Trip planned

    Might have to abort this mission.
    My dad emailed me the other day that he has had a persistent cough the entire winter,immediate xrays showed some fairly substantial masses in his lungs and further testing (CT scans,etc)needs to be done. The doctor has said it looks weird and not like anything typical of "XXX" but nothing has been ruled out until he scopes it and actually takes some tissue samples which they'll do on site within an hour and a half ,while they're there.
    Wife and I are prepared to move down to be by them and if that happens our cruise travel plans and Cuba are cancelled.
    so if that happens...anyone know of any employment opportunities in construction in and around North Central Alabama?

    Really sorry to hear about your dad.....

    You might want to check with the several forum members from around that area to see if they know of opportunities.

    Re: Trip planned

    Thanks Dave, Dad had a CT scan last week and it showed a 5.3 cm mass in one lung and a few nodules in the other. Some of substantial size. He said not to worry but back only a few years ago when he had a heart attack and stint installed , those weren't on any xray. He goes back to another dr in the city for a scope and biopsy ,should have the results the same day. Dad is 78 ,mom is 76 . She has 2 artificial hips and can barely walk some days, we can't let her try to handle all this by herself and us living 12 hours away . Our new location would be 12 minutes.
    Our plans of moving down there to be by them was supposed to be after I retire which is another 5 yrs from this August. I don't have to tell you , this can't wait. I'm quite excited but quite a bit scared. Work here has been spotty to slow to near nothing. Over the last 5 months I've worked 2 weeks and it wasn't even in my home (union) local area. Got outage work coming up again here in about 2 weeks that is in my local area , should last a month or better but theres nothing coming up again until at least September. If I have to ,I'll come up to work and stay with friends or wifes family for the duration. I've put in to some construction companies down there, one was looking for a commercial carpenter, which I have done. Hoping this is the direction I need to be going,but, Family first.

    Re: Trip planned

    Cancelled the trip and flights yesterday. Now we're planning on moving close to mom and dad ,probably be re-settled down there by Late May/early June if the bid goes through .I'm already pre-approved for a loan. Looking at a 3 bed ,2 full bath house on 2 acres in Grant ,AL. It has all kinds of newly remodeled floors, kitchen ,roof, tons of space ,a walkout basement garage/workshop ,a big separate pole barn (which my son is claiming) a 2 car barn style garage with apartment loft ,an in-ground pool and a small separate stone sided house which is listed as unfinished but I may finish it out if my son decides he needs more privacy, to use as a guest house or might even turn it into my own brew house/personal tavern. So many options.
    In short, no tobacco crop for me this year. I'll have my hands full enough as it is.
