Thank you I like to spoil her rotten!

They won't run out of bikes, there are tons.

The only things alive I saw were mosquitos. I love exploring, especially places that look mysterious. A path into the jungle was just the thing to spark my interest

There's never enough vacation time
I'm always thinking about it
I can't imagine being in it alone

So it's like the piña colova? Sounds delicious. We'll have to meet over one of those.

Thats so very sweet and very heartwarming. I bet she just loves it. I know I would.

Thats great, thank you. I'm thinking the island can' be all that big if we can ride around the whole thing. That's also good news.

Whew! I can deal with Mosquitos. Did the path look mysterious? Very cool. I can do mysterious. And swarthy. I really like swarthy. Captain Jack is swarthy.

Hey Pam....




238 days!!!




Happy Memorial Day weekend friends. Have a great weekend. Be safe.


We've got loads of soccer, Gabby's has a dance tonight, we've got a farewell for some friends leaving our synagogue, a Salt Lake Real game, and dinner with my bestie. And that's all today.

Absolutely! I just looked up the recipe; dark rum, light rum, OJ, cream of coconut, and passion fruit juice.

It's not big at all, and more than half is designated a nature preserve. You could easily go on all the bike paths and have plenty of time to do other things. They rent the bikes by the hour.

I keep forgetting to say, I'm sorry the December trip isn't going to work out.

That sounds delicious! Rum just screams vacation to me.

That's perfect. I'll have to search on weather at CC in mid January. I was really looking forward to a beach day. We're used to Utah so even 70* feels wonderful to us.

Isn't he great? Chloe told me that originally, in the first movie, Will and Elizabeth were supposed to be the main story line and Captain Jack stole the show and subsequently the sequels revolved around him. I thought that was interesting.

It's okay. Thank you. I'd just like the villas to book up already so I can stop pining to go. Every day the GCV sits open I'm more tempted to book and we really cannot afford it right now, time wise even more that $$. With DH having to take time off for my cruise in Jan and our trip in Feb and time for other work, its just impossible. But if I keep looking, I'll be tempted to do what we did during Spring Break which is have him drive out with us, spend a few days, and then fly home.

Then you may be just fine. I like upper 80s to 90s before getting in the water

I've never heard that before. I'm glad they did, he's just fantastic. I read that Johnny will do as many movies as they want, he loves playing that character so much.

I don't think I could have the self control! You can at least book and then cancel later

How did I miss this? I'm sorry. I went to a friends house Sunday and Monday it was just me and the dog. It was nice and low key

I think we'll be okay too. Joshua will swim in anything.

With as creative as they've been, I could see them getting at least 2-3 more out of the pirate thing. He's an amazing leading man.

The Studios and one bedroom are finally booked so I can quit looking. I can't afford a two bedroom and don;t have enough points to borrow so I'm feeling better. Weird logic, I know. I can't believe it took almost a week to book up at 7 months.

Soem alone time with just the dogs sounds great. My kids have so much energy due to school almost being over. I can't wait until they can stay up all night and sleep all day. I love summer.

You shouldn't have looked, I feel your pain, I've done that for trips that I'd planned...in my mind anyway!

And really, our NYE trip may only be in my mind as it is, booking aside. It isn't to be helped but ugh I really wish things were more firm.

You're right, I shouldn't have looked. I also shouldn't have kept looking. And looking. And looking. It was the longest 6 days of my life.

You're at WDW? I'm so envious. Have a great trip. Can't wait to read all about it. How's the weather? Crowds?
