    Laura, I hope that your work comes together so you can go to all your events.

    I'm hoping that the RA doctor can come up with something that will give Fran some relief, but will not inhibit her leg healing. I didn't bother to book anything, just in case we aren't able to go.

    You do have a couple of fabulous cruises planned, right?! ;) That should take some of the sting out of missing this year's F&WF. (although I still don't know why you couldn't sneak a weekend in here or there (10/12-14)........... :rolleyes1)


    I did tell UM I'm busy 10/7-17, but if they really, really need me and it overlaps for a day or 2, I would make the sacrifice. :angel: Now, having looked at the calendar, the start date isn't a problem, but the last couple of days could be an issue. I'm not going to worry about it yet! I will definitely be there 10/7 through 10/14! :thumbsup2


    Alison, I am so sorry that Fran is still having health issues. We'll keep prayers coming that relief is just a doctor visit away. pixiedust:

    I hope it works out so work won't interfere with your vacation! My BFF and family are now flying down instead of driving. So I changed my flight to 10/6 and may just leave it there even if they cancel. I thought about cancelling part of my week as well and flying down 10/10, but if I'm going to lose the points to holding status, I might as well just come down anyway. My fingers are still crossed for them, but it's not looking too good. :sad1:

    I'm also sorry that Fran is still having issues, hopefully they will clear up enough that you'll be able to get away...you guys deserve it with everything you've been through.

    No cruises until feb.... But we will be flying on the 13th of Oct to see our families in Texas. So I wished I could come down, but I will have to wait until next year or the next...

    I understand. Family first. ;)

    The good thing is WDW will still be there when you're ready and able to return -- with more "new" experiences!! :cloud9::cloud9:


    :thumbsup2

    I did not book anything this year for F&W. Since we are leaving on the 5th there only was the Italian Regional Food and Wine Lunch that we could attend and were interested in. However I had booked as a surprise for my DH The Epcot Dive experience which is that day during the same time. So we will be just enjoying the booths and any experiences we come upon for our F&W.

    Do any of you remember from a few years back a section set up for "The Australian Wine Walkabout"? It was set up under some big trees just off the walk way. It was a super experience where you went to different tables/booths set up for the different regions of Australia and their wines. You paid a set amount for the total experience I seem to remember it was like $8.00 pp to get a generous pour of each wine from that region (usually 2-3 wines per region). They told you about the wine, grapes and how it was produced along with great interaction and stories. It was one of our favorite experiences for a couple years running. Sadly it was not there in 2010 and I don't see it this year.
    But we do have great memories!

    :laughing: I remember the Australian Wine Walkabout well!!! Sadly, it hasn't been there the last couple of years. :sad2:

    You must try Tutto Gusto - which is the new wine bar next to Tutto Italia. :thumbsup2 I'll be heading that way this weekend! :cloud9:


    A Biergarten took its place (IIRC). When alcohol is involved, my memory sometimes gets fuzzy!! :rotfl2:

    Ann,

    I remember the Australian Wine Walkabout--maybe 2004. For some reason, I had a hole in my chin and ended up with red wine on my white top. :rotfl: Hard to forget that!

    Some of us have permament holes in our chins when drinking red wine, usually against a light colored shirt!:laughing:

    Thanks Laura. Waiting to hear how his brain scan went on Friday and I have yet to hear from BFF. Hoping no news is good news.

    Whrn we had a F&W festival in CA we had several of those walkabouts I think two or three with wine and one with beer. Our food and liquor laws are much more restricted here so kiosks aren't possible I guess though you can sell wine in a free standing booth.

    Just about a month now! :cool1: I'm so looking forward to seeing all my friends. It will be soooo relaxing in between have my BFF and family down there, and a bunch of friends from our neighborhood coming the next week. It's been a long summer with a lot of rotten things (culminating in my lovely ER visit and overnight stay last week) so hopefully Disney will help change all this.

    BFF's DH goes for his second round of chemo today, doc wanted it to be as far out from the trip as possible. He'll have a scan the Friday before we leave to see if it's helping, but they don't want to know the results until after this trip. I truly hope that he is able to enjoy some time with his boys while we are in FL. I did decide that even if they bail at the last second, I'll still come down on the 6th, stay at AKV until the 12th and then will be at BWV.

    I am glad the trip is still a "go," Tracy!! I am looking forward to seeing you again. :)

    I wish your BFF's DH the best of luck. Sounds like he is a "hard fighter" and that will help.

    What were you doing in the ER?!?!? :eek:

    On a happier note: We ordered our hoppers yesterday and Undercover Tourist shipped them today!! :yay:

    :woohoo: It won't be long now!

    A quick "Hi!" from Fort Hood, TX! It's a very somber mood here today on the Base. :sad1:

    I'm so glad plans are progressing for you, Tracy, and for you, Elin! :thumbsup2

    I probably won't have time to get caught up and organized until next week.

    And I am looking forward to seeing you (and Bob) again. :)

    Yes he is and thank you.

    Oh had some chest pains, foggy head and just felt weird. Had one clear EKG and they were going to let me go but a second one was a little "funny" :faint: so that earned me more tests and the overnight stay. Thankfully everything came back normal. ::yes::

    :thumbsup2 YAY - we are so close now.

    I'm trying to get organized, but I feel like the more I'm doing the less organized I get.
