Hahaha!!! I was thinking there was this whole girls' trip planned and I got ditched. Thats hilarious. So you booked the same cruise by chance? I love it. Pam and I are on the same cruise in January just by chance.

Me and Michael should do the same. Or can do what Jill is doing. I still haven't convinced Michael to take the cruise plunge but I bet we'd all have a great kidless cruise. Something to think about for sure.

Michael can technically retire from the FD in 2.5 years. He's ready to be done. He loves his job and its been a great career but 20 years is plenty with all of the trauma he sees. Our ultimate dream is to own a nice big sail boat and sail around and live on it. Having a small land address and fast car too. He's working his tail off to make it happen.

We will be doing to Vancouver repositioning cruise in 5 weeks. I can't wait.

Is a repositioning cruise where they move the ship to sail from a new port? Do you stop at ports and visit the cities? How exciting!

With your well known name and high post count I;m sure you could get more renting them on your own but with David's there risk and headache are gone for you.
I leaves from Port Canaveral. Day 2 at CC, Day 3 at Sea, Day 4 at Key West, Day 5 at CC and back to PC.

When I rent to folks I only charge $10 per point. So far I only have 30 points from my 2012 UY left. They are banked into 2013 and I have until August to use them. Probably for a night at the GCH on short notice, or the DLH.

My 2013 points are the ones I'm fretting about I still have 2/3 the allotment left and nowhere to spend them yet!

Ok, first read this on my phone and all I saw was "Fran is a Cougar collector" and my mind went in the wrong direction.

I have a 1966 Mustang convertible. I've finally got the restoration up to the body/paint stage.

Sigh I used to have a 1965 Mustang. It died a fiery death.


Hi all! Scotty made me feel better today by telling me that I needed to look forward to a Disneyland trip in fall of 2014. It's a ways off but it made me smile.

I'm so sorry....I didn't want to say anything before about the car when you've lost so much else that's more important.

I'm so glad you have something fun to plan for!

Thank you Jill. I think the big thing with the car is that I remember the day my dad drove it off the lot. I learned to drive in that car. I cruised in that car. It was a rite of passage for me. To see it like it is breaks my heart. Especially knowing that I have to find someone willing to take it.


I am glad to have a trip to plan. We are going to have a blow out trip.


I started meeting with the contractors today. I feel like I am on a prom date and they are trying to seduce me. All these stories they are telling me. Tempting me with granite or marble counters. Recessed lighting. All the fun stuff. Silly boys, I don't buy flattery.

That's even more heartbreaking. Is it salvageable at all? Even bigger

Well....Jill was on it first. Originally we were booked on the Med and then I got financially responsible are rebooked the 9/28 S. Carribbean. then I started doing my homework around what was more likely versus less to be a conflict with homecoming and moved it to the 9/20 and voila! We are on the same cruise It will be an early anniversary cruise.

Not all that different from Jeff's dream, which is to move somewhere warm we can easily fly the seaplane in and out of and just bop around lake to lake, small island to small island... He's still got 8 years before "early" retirement and frankly we've got 10 before kids are really out of college if they are even on time so....he's saying 10 years and my money is on 12-15.

Oh Michelle, that is heartbreaking.

You do need to look forward to a fall trip, planning will make you smile and when the contractors annoy you...ask them if they can replicate a light fixture in Morrocco, tile from Mexico, or a something equally as silly.

Yes, our cruise goes from Los Angeles to Vancouver and we have an overnight stop at San Francisco and a day in Victoria on the way. The first day in San Francisco we will do the Napa Wine Train and the second day I will go to the Disney Family Museum and DH has booked an excursion to cycle across the Golden Gate Bridge.

Jill, That's really cool you have gotten the car to that stage. All of our cars have come to us in pretty good condition so they only need minor repairs. We have our first one that requires paint and exterior work. It also has some rust that needs to be addressed.

Michele, I was wondering if there was any hope for your poor Mustang. I noticed that one right off, and what a classic it was. The fact that it has such sentimental value too makes it even more heartbreaking.
