The Amazing Race - November 11 Episode Blog Party


Thank you, everyone, for your concern about me in the wake of Hurricane Sandy! I'm back!

As the show airs here on the East Coast, I'll update this entry with the major events. But the real fun is in the comments area. Join us there!

Teams are off to Moscow.

The Detour has to alphabetize (collecting books) or synchronized swimming. The Roadblock is with keys and locks. Two teams -- the goat farmers and Abbie/Ryan are way behind due to flight issues.

1. Trey and Lexi - Won a trip to Maui.
2. James and Jaymes
9. Natalie and Nadiya

James and Abba lost their bags in a taxi. They weren't allowed to check into the Pit Stop at number four. And, then it ends. This leg is a two-parter.

Sharon S said...

Welcome back!

Lifeguard Laurie said...

Wanted to let you know that Becky's mom fell and broke her hip today. They are at the hospital and would certainly appreciate prayers and good thoughts.

Jackie said...

Thank you. I watched last week's show online earlier today.

SueGee said...

I also have some Cassis if anyone would like to try a splash in their Champagne. I love it!

lynn1 said...

I really feel for Becky . My Mom has Alzheimer's too. She is suffering with a compressed fracture of the L1 veterbrae. It is really hard to deal with when they can't remember what is causing the pain.

Joe in NY said...

this season has been a total loss to me. I need to pay more attention. I have NO feelings about any of these teams.

Jackie said...

I'm so sorry to hear about Becky's mom. Prayers out to her!

SueGee - Not quite caught up with Survivor yet. Life is still a bit wonky here. I can't believe how tired I am! I'll probably hit the sack after TAR. And, that's not like me!

lynn1 said...

Joe I agree with you. I am not cheering for anyone and really don't dislike any of the team either

Joe in NY said...

ok, that's all but a needle in a haystack challenge. Don't really like those. Someone's going to end up stuck in the library until morning!

Nickelpeed said...

Oh no! Poor Becky!!!

Joe in NY said...

If they had half a brain, they could learn the order of the alphabet. Since it is already alphabetical, they could get the order from the sequence of the first letters and then they'd have half a chance...

Joe in NY said...

I thought the Indian girls were actually pretty good in the water considering they were amateurs

Joe in NY said...

I also appear to be talking to myself. :)

SueGee said...

Im here watching you guys and eating dinner

Nickelpeed said...

I'm rooting for Lexi and Trey, now. Hope they do well.

Penny

Nickelpeed said...

Well, Jackie, I sure have missed your blogs. I won't be here Wed. night because I work, but I'll come to the Survivor blog to see what's happened.

I'm so glad you ad Vincent are okay.

Penny

SueGee said...

That's my pool pick Penny. They seem to be nice kids with no screaming genes

Nickelpeed said...

Yay, first again for Lexi and Trey!

Penny

Becky said...

Hey, everyone! Better late than never.

Becky said...

Jackie, it is so good to have you back where you belong. We missed meeting here last week.

Sharon S said...

Joe, I was listening. I've a bit of a cold with a fever, and my thoughts aren't fully forming enough to share!

Sharon S said...

Becky, how is your mother?

Nickelpeed said...

3rd isn't good? They still have the express pass?

I wish they would get lost. LOL

Joe in NY said...

Hey Becky, how's your Mom?

Sharon S said...

I agree. Those twins can't be eliminated soon enough for me.

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Becky - How is everything? Your mom? (((hugs)))

Nickelpeed said...

Oh gosh, the two rockers could be last. Darn. Hope he finds his passport.

SueGee said...

ha ha freudian slip on the race results?

Joe in NY said...

OK all things considered, they may both survive the day. But what is the point in "working together"? What were they going to do, step on the mat at an identical time? Or race the last 50 yards?

Becky said...

Momma is still in the ER waiting for them to give her a room. They gave her a pretty strong pain shot (she received two)so they could take more x-rays.

She was dozing off and on and the nurse told us to go home and they would call us when she was assigned a room.

She told us the orthopedic surgeon would review the x-rays and talk with the family tomorrow. Since Momma was sleeping I told her goodbye and that I loved her. We have a little thing where one tells the other I love you and the other says I love you a bushel and a peck and then the other replies and a hug around the neck. She woke long enough to respond to my I love you.

We will go back to the hospital tomorrow.

Thank all of you for your good thoughts and prayers.

Sharon S said...

oh no! To be continued? phooey

Margo said...

hi everyone and welcome back miss Jackie.
Margo

Nickelpeed said...

Poor guys. Wow. To be continued....

Well, dang.

Anyway. Thank you Jackie. I probably will not be here Wed for Survivor. I could be late. I am very happy you are back.

Becky, I hope your mother is okay. Night everyone!!

Penny

lynn1 said...

Joe you are right about the 2 teams waiting on the other just plain dumb

lynn1 said...

Thanks Jackie It was fun getting together with you and the blog gang

Becky said...

Thanks for hosting us, Jackie. I will see you all Wednesday.

Thanks again for the prayers.

Jackie said...

Thanks, folks! Have a good night!

monty924 said...

Well, of course I missed the re-opening of the pool. It's my Sunday night policy to always get home too late to join in here. :( So happy to see you back on the grid, Jackie and really enjoyed your Sunday morning retrospective both in word and pics.

Becky, I'm so sorry to see this about your dear momma. I'm sending up prayers for healing and sending them up for you as well.
