    Laura, I am sure you are safe at Ft Bragg. I love that base...course it could be because my DH was stationed there. :) But I love the size of it and all the history of the Special Forces. Hope you have a good week with great weather.

    I really would enjoy attending this! We all have to keep each other informed when the dates and tastings are listed. :thumbsup2

    Ok, DH and myself are on for this one. :yay: I love me some Grand Marnier! We always order Cadillac margarita's when we go out for mexican. it would be so much fun going together if possible.

    Happy Saturday everyone.

    Sounds like fun! :thumbsup2


    Thanks! It was a terribly long day. Delayed for hours at ATL - they shut the airport for several hours during the height of the storms. We finally took off at 5:15 and had a very bumpy ride. Let me put it this way, there were many of us praying (even some frequent travelers on that route). :eek:

    But I'm here safe and sound (and thankful! :worship:)


    I'll get my first look at Ft Bragg tomorrow afternoon. :) The long days start Monday.


    Have a great week Jamborinis! :goodvibes

    I'm assuming that you all mean Ft Bragg, NC and not Ft Bragg, CA :rotfl2:

    Elin - hope Bob's surgery goes well!!

    Question for all my friends - if you've rented DVC points in the past where have you rented them from? I'm leaning towards David's Rentals simply because it seems to be a bit more trustworthy. We're thinking about renting in October and I have friends who are new to WDW thinking about renting points, but wondered if I should point them anywhere else.

    Thanks all!

    when I have rented them out, I have done it thru the DIS there is a section on the DVC portion.

    North Carolina for us also. :)

    Great question, I would also be interested in suggestions and how things worked with companies like David's. That may be the way to go for our family size and September/October trip. Thank you for asking TyRy. :goodvibes

    When I added on my two contracts last Winter, I thought that I would be renting out my extra points...however in my case I am finding out that there is no such thing as extra points. :rolleyes1

    Good morning, everyone! :)

    Diana - Bob is having cataract surgery on Wednesday. No biggie, usually. Given the past year, we are hoping all goes well. :goodvibes

    Good Evening Jaborini's! :)

    Had a day at home (rarely happens) spent it surfing Disney and getting things in order to book our October trip. :yay: Now just waiting to hear about DSIL's vacation time for October. It is difficult to commit this far out for him and his business so we may just go with it and hope for the best. Going to give it another few days.

    Elin, Sending prayers and pixie dust for Bob's surgery tomorrow. I am sure every thing will go perfectly!

    Brandi, :hug: for healing and :dance3: for you cruise in hmm 12 days.

    Laura, Hope your having a good week!

    Alison, How wonderful that you two have been able to use all your points. Someday....maybe we will be buying DVC. :tigger:

    Hi, y'all! Just time for a quick *fly-by*!! ;)

    I am not recovering quickly from these 14 hr work days!! :confused:

    Ft Bragg is a totally different environment than Ft Carson. We are spending 12+ hrs a day in a large "gymnasium" (actually more of a warehouse) - on a concrete floor. By the end of the evening, I have concrete dust all the way up to my knees!!! :rotfl:

    I hope everyone is having a great week! I have some free time Saturday, so if I'm not asleep from total exhaustion, I hope to catch up on the Boards! :goodvibes

    Good morning, Friends! :sunny:

    Bob's surgery went well! We have a follow-up surgeon's appointment this afternoon but so far, so good!! :goodvibes

    Laura - hope you aren't having to stand on that concrete floor all that time! :hug:

    We had a follow-up appointment yesterday afternoon and the surgeon is delighted. Bob's eyesight without correction in his left eye is now 20/30! He will need new glasses but we popped the lens out of his current pair this morning. I had to put it back in because the lack of the rest of his progressive prescription made him dizzy. We can have an exam done in about a month to five weeks. It worked!

    :wave2: Just thought I'd bring this thread back to life! :laughing:

    Getting ready to head to another Army base for a week: Joint Base Lewis-McChord, near Tacoma, WA. I leave Saturday morning.

    I have the feeling I will arrive there a real cranky-pants after 5-1/2 hours in a middle seat on a 757! I've been trying for 2 weeks to get a different seat - Delta says "no"!! :rotfl:

    I thought I was going to be able to get to WDW later this month, when Diana is there for the Princess Half. Had just made my reservations a couple days ago when I learned I'll be going to Fort Drum, NY instead. :sad1: My consolation is that the work we are doing is very important, so I guess I can put my WDW trips aside for awhile.

    The 7-month mark for my room reservation is March 7th. Right now I'm at SSR. I'm not sure if I should try for BCV, BWV, AKV or just stick with the Studio I've got. :confused3 I wouldn't mind a DTD view from Congress Park! :cloud9: I'll be at Swan 10/12-14; I'm not going to change that! :thumbsup2

    :wave2: Laura! Thanks for posting something on here. Fort Drum... near Rochester! You might get to see some winter! Oh, wait... I guess you had enough of that in CO, right??

    I am sorry you won't be able to meet Diana at WDW later this month. I know you were looking forward to it. I hope the satisfaction of a job well done helps soften the loss of another trip.

    February and WDW just weren't in the cards for me this year! :laughing: Two trips planned; two canceled! :headache: October and December will make up for it though! :woohoo:

    Leaving Saturday for Tacoma -- forecast shows showers every day we're there. Won't matter much to me since I'll be indoors before sun-up and long after sunset! :upsidedow


    Drinking to the End of the World: I just booked a studio at SSR for 12/21-26. Rachel and Blake are planning to join us for Christmas so we will let them take the studio. I think I'm going to use 40,000 SPG points and book those 5 nights at Swan for JD, Tori & I. ;) It would be nice to stay in a villa with a kitchen and washer/dryer, but who am I kidding? I won't be cooking and I can live 5 or 6 days without doing laundry!! :rotfl:
