Aliosn, I know about the road trip but do tell on the others. You know we love the details. What's the estimated finish time for the second story?



Pam, 805 photos? You can never have enough especially of AKV. Never. I'd love to see whatever you want to share.

Well I can post here since I'm not reported to any kind of truth or whatever, but I need to post on the house thread about the architect and stuff, but bottom line they won't start on anything before May. I'll give more details over there, but it will be at least six months in my estimation, before they finish. I need to get over there to update and somewhere figure out where to talk about all the vacays! Fran has gone nuts on trips and I'm pretty psyched about it and astonished!

Ok, I'll check there. And you were cracking me up on FB. You mean, the Five Sheets can come live with you?

I'm sorry the remodel/add on will take so long but I'm happy about some extra fun trips. Silver lining girlfriend, silver lining.

Well I haven't had time to put together an update for over there. These are the trips

May 2-11 - SW road trip
May 28 - June 5 - WDW
July 9-13 - San Luis Obispo w/car club
July 25-28 - Destination D in WDW
July 30 - August 4 - Las Vegas, Star Trek Convention
August 7-16 - Gay Games trip including side trip to Auburn Indiana for the Car Museum.

Should keep us busy while we're waiting for the house to be finished!

I had to edit and add one that I forgot.

They sounds awesome! We may be in Vegas around that time for our anniversary again.

June is going to be amazing at the VGF!

SW road trip will also be very cool. Just don't go north of Cedar City. Our air is pure crap here. Worst in the nation.

Where are the Gay Games held?

I'm loving all of your plans. When are they starting the second story? Can you move stuff in slowly while they're adding on? We've never done a remodel or added on, only new construction. If you go to my FB pics, there are pics.

I don't want to crash your anniversary, but who knows maybe we can meet up for a drink! We aren't going to be leaving the Rio much and a lot of our time is already taken up with the convention, so we'll see what happens.

I'm two days ahead of posting on the PTR and the next two days sound really cool and amazing. We're also going to schedule a trip to my parents again this winter/spring for some "studying"!

Cleveland. We'll make the best of it. Most of our time will be spent in rehearsals and meeting up with friends we have made over the years in the various bands around the country. We only see them for these kinds of events and Atlanta last year was the first one we had done since two Gay Games ago in 2006. We planned to do the LGBA Convention in Dallas in 2012, but Fran's wounds were not healed enough to go.

There's all sorts of bureaucratic bullsh!t before the first hammer can be swung or the first sledgehammer can fall. I'll post the proposed schedule and plan over in the house thread when I get a chance. We're not on the board of the band any more so that will actually free up my schedule a ton. Probably about the time that it needs to be!

You know us, we're always up for a drink. If we go, and its a big if as this summer just took a crazy turn, details to come, we'll most likely stay at The Venetian again. Their pools are the best and very few kids.

Studying? I'm all caught up on your PTR I think. I'll go check.

Other than the Cleveland part, it sounds great. You'll have a great time no matter where it's held. I'm sure there are some cute little eats in Cleveland. I like to check Guy's DDD if we're going away to see if we can visit any of his joints. Getting together with friends is always awesome! Can't wait to read all about it and I'm glad Fran is feeling well enough to go.

When I first read this I thought, how did she get bullshii through the filer and then I took a closer look. I'll look for the post. I'm we'll versed in building headaches. We had to have our whole lot redrawn because the city wouldn't approve out driveway. Glad you'll have a little schedule relief but knowing you, it'll only be temporary. You ladies and go go go!






Pam, my little Pam, where are you? We're at:



60 days!!!






This time next week we'll be taking off for Zihuatanejo! I cannot wait. The kids are already asking what they're going to eat.

Holy carp! You aren't going to be home this year! I don't see any trips through Denver so I'm a bit disappointed though.

Look what I saw on the Port of Miami webcam today:

I have a mad case of cabin fever. Work has been insane, pun intended. I can't remember this sick of a milieu. Ever. And we're full. One person discharges and two are needing a bed.

Tell me your 2015 cruise plans friends. I'm really thinking I'm going to try to book something on board.
