Elin, I hope you and Bob have a fantastic time!

Laura, I know now what you have to drive through to get to the airport? I take it you are north of Atlanta? I hope you get some relaxing in with your parents safely tucked in assisted living.

Brandi, some people just "have it" and regardless of their situation they rise to the top of the bunch. You've obviously got it.

Fran had a relapse on her sinus congestion. Sunday night we went to Knott's scary farm, and Monday we did a tour of the Walt Disney studios. Both were outside and not in the best of So Cal weather. Yesterday it hit her hard and she stayed home from band. We canceled all our obligations for today and she has none for tomorrow, so I hope she gets better.

I just got off the phone with DVC member services. We have a GV booked for a week from Saturday. A bunch of us from our band are going to a swanky restaurant out at the DLR and staying in the GV, then we have a concert the next day in DCA. It should be fun, nine of us in a GV. Fran and I have the master, another couple gets one of the other bedrooms and the others can sort out the sleeping arrangements themselves!

Alison - please tell Fran I said "feel better".

We live northeast of ATL -- in Gwinnett County. We are on the I-85 side, but it takes us 25-30 minutes to get to the interstate. Then we either have to drive through downtown or take I-285 and go around downtown! I wouldn't want to live anywhere near that airport, but it is truly a pain (traffic-wise) to get there!

Have a fabulous time in the GV! I bet that'll be a blast!



Elin, I hope you & Bob have a good night at the airport hotel; safe travels tomorrow (Happy Halloween!); have a wonderful, magical time being pampered at AKL!! I will see you Saturday!!

You know I was thinking that I was going to take this new job, enjoy the work and relax a little and just do what was required, nothing more, no more looking to climb the ladder....

Then bam.... here you go, do what you were hired to do PLUS all of the Management stuff...


Why or why do I do this to myself....
Well-deserved, I am sure!

Good afternoon, Js & Ks!

It's time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have to leave to teach for 3 hours and then I will scoot back home to get Bob. The car is packed and I think I haven't missed anything.

Have fun at DL Alison, and I hope Fran feels better soon.

See you in a couple of days, Laura. Keep in touch. If I got everything done, I know you will too!!

I will try to post a bit, but no promises. See you all on November 10th or 11th!!!

Alison, I hope Fran feels better soon, have you called her Dr? Can they give her anything?
I hate to think of her feeling bad.

I know you all will have a wonderful time at DL in a GV.... Pictures please!

Enjoy the swanky restaurant and the concert.

I have been so crazy busy that I have just paid a flying visit every now and again, but had not time to comment. Today is my first day off after working 7 days in a row and doing a lot of overtime so I have more time to catch up with things.

Alison, I hope Fran feels better soon. I would love to see some photos of the Grand Villa.

Laura and Elin, I wish you safe travels and hope that you have a wonderful time at Walt Disney World.

Brandi, that is really impressive that they discovered your potential so quickly. I know that you don't really want the responsibility that comes with it, but this is still a huge pat on the back.

I know there are a few Dooney and Bourke fans on here. I just became aware that they have released a new Disney Cruise Line exclusive design. It is a variation on the Charm pattern, but it is navy blue with DCL related charms. There is a photo here:

I so want the one on the bottom right and as all the overtime I did this month gets paid out just before I leave for Florida, I may well treat myself to this.
