    Sorry this took so long to get under way everyone. I walked in the door from our trip sick, and still had Christmas shopping to do.

    I'll start this TR the same way I started the last 2.......... with a photo with the World's best Fairy Godmother!

    So much for suspense, right? I reported last summer that our odds of finding her on this trip didn't look good. So how happy were we to find her in her regular spot behind the castle!

    I overlooked your comment on the FG. When was your trip? She was only out 2 days out of our 10 day trip. We were very luck to catch her. :)

    I didn't get caught so all's good!


    Janet forced me into the bathroom! :rotfl:

    Seriously, I heard my phone go off in my desk drawer and it was an email from Janet. So I hid in the bathroom to make sure I got here right away! LOL
