    If she's too good for me, then she's definitely way too good for you... :thumbsup2 ;)

    Well played DW! :thumbsup2

    It was a great surprise. An early birthday gift from DW. :thumbsup2

    Yeah - he was a short skinny chef....don't see to many like that! :thumbsup2

    No, Klinger wasn't cooking for us. Thankfully! :lmao:

    It was a great night.

    We arrived at 6:15p and didn't leave until 10p!


    They do these Earth to Table dinners once a month. In June, the guest Chef is Tyler Florence!

    I have one rule in life: Never trust a skinny cook.

    Thank you sir. I’ll happily accept that.
    DW, on the other hand, may well need to have her head examined for not having thrown me out before now…

    But so long as she’s wiling to live a life of delusion, it’s all good for me.

    Thanks! That’s a good one to know.
    I may have to give it a try in June.


    We did a bit of that formalwear type of shopping as well this weekend. Prom related to be specific. Being a musician, DS already owns a tux, but we needed to find a vest and tie that matched the young ladies’ gown. I had my doubts about pulling that one off at first, but I obviously underestimated the vast amount of rentable formal apparel available. Ten minutes, and we had the mission accomplished. Celebrated with calzone and Stromboli from a local purveyor… that made the trip far more enjoyable.

    Happy new week guys. My week started with DD2 throwing up in our bed for about the 5th time in the past 2 weeks at 3 o'clock in the morning. But hey, at least the sun is shining today.

    I think we've settled on Hilton Head as our June destination. Now just to decide between the Disney resort there and a newly remodeled place called Sonesta. The D resort would be about a $500 premium so I'm not sure that one is in the lead.

    Not the best way to start the morning. Hope he gets over it quickly. As for the hotel, while we liked the Disney resort, I don't know if I would have booked it paying cash. It works well with DVC.

    Looks and sounds like you had a great meal.

    There is a really difficult secret weapon you can use in these battles. Don't read the text.

    You don't need a data plan to text. You know better, sly....

    I have surrendered to the allergies. I hate this time of year.

    That's my plan - unless I win the lotto. Then, I'll sit on a couch in WDW. :lmao:

    Happy Anniversary. 22 years is a long time.

    Make sure you let her splurge and order anything. Don't limit her to just the Dollar Menu.

    Very cool. Looking forward to seeing the new menu and restaurant layout.

    Funny, very funny.

    "You sent all the way to Chicago and you didn't order any cole slaw?"

    One of my favorite MASH episodes.

    Happy 22nd.

    Reminds me of last year. You are lucky you could rent. They don't rent prom dresses.

    On a side note, Marlins guaranteed not to lose today. Game was canceled because of snow coming tonight in Minnesota.

    I about had to cry myself to sleep when they beat the Reds with a home run against Chapman.

    Thankfully, they managed to salvage the weekend. :rotfl2::lmao::rotfl:

    This will be a little bit better place than McDonald's. And, no I don't mean Culver's. I know that's what you Sconnies call fine dinning.

    Better than Culver's? :scared: Impossible unless it is a day when they are making some of the weird flavors of frozen custard. Frozen custard is anytime food.

    Thanks guys…
    22 is a lot of years, but oddly it doesn’t seem like it’s been that long.
    Time moves so quick now that I’m not certain how it got to be mid April much less when the heck 2013 arrived.



    Good point.
    But I’d happily trade that “rental advantage” for some better grant offerings.


    :lmao:

    Had never heard of such so I had to look that one up.
    As of now there’s only one of em’ east of Ohio or south of Tennessee, but oddly enough it’s in SC, just no where near me. But then low and behold, someone is apparently planning to open one in my town… go figure… If it’s any good I may have to give it a try (assuming that it ever actually opens up that is).

    :hyper: 10 hours and we're heading to the airport! :cool1: Not sure how much sleep I'll get tonight. Still putting together last minute stuff for some reason. Thought I was all ready to go! Should be checked into Wyndham Bonnet Creek Resort just after lunch time and then head over to DHS.

    Sorry I haven't kept up lately... life has been in overdrive this week. Prayers to those that need them. High fives for those who are celebrating. I'll be posting stuff to FB this week.
