I am SO behind so I am cheating and started with the latest post and will go backward. LOL. Anyway, so happy for Kyle!!!! Sounds like a great fit career-wise.

I am not sure if I told you this story -- a few months before we divorced, my then-husband, Davy, and I went to Disney and Universal for Davy's 5th birthday. Davy just kept banging his face in -- he fell at Tom Sawyer's island (my ex wasn't paying attention when I took literally a ten minute break in the shade), he bumped into a pole when my ex was pulling him along at the race track at Disney, and he fell on his face at a picnic table. My ex was sure then I was going to divorce him (I was). But, I know none of that was on purpose -- but it DID look like we had beaten the poor kid. Spiderman -when there used to be a character lunch at Confisco Grill -- spent like 30 minutes straight with Davy. Probably trying to figure out if he needed to call social services or just put us in a web prison right there. But, it just delighted Davy. He was and still is a HUGE Spidey fan -- I'm sure probably not the "same one" you met as this was obviously 10 years ago, but I still have a soft spot for the guy.

I will try to catch up -- thought things were going back to normal, but my tennis team just got invited to a five-state-area competition so I am rushing to get ready for that.

Oh good lord that`s actually quite scary!!! Poor Davy getting bashed like that, even by accident!!

Yes, Spider-Man would have been observing I`m sure.........I do remember the character meals there.

Thanks so much 🥰......he is blending in wonderfully with this firm and career wise, it`s perfect for him!

Good luck with the tennis........ :wave2:

I certainly will pass that on Nancy, thank you....we`re still so thrilled for him with this!

I`ll tell Tom 23 nights is not enough......lol....it was so lovely as nothing felt rushed and we were so relaxed although we did seem to be busy a lot.

I`ve told all my friends......(even you Felicity) that I`m not shopping for anyone this upcoming trip......only for us, and we hope to get away with 3 suitcases......I groaned a lot at having to hustle 2 full suitcases......lol.....

Yep, 5 weeks tomorrow till we leave for the airport :cheer2:

And thank you for the lovely comments along the way, I`m so glad you enjoyed it, and hope to see you on the next one too.....hope you`re doing ok.....☺️

Every time you visit, it's another great UO vacation for me - it feels like I'm right there with you. If you ever visit Key West, I think you'll enjoy the Papa Pilar rum tour. I believe there are samples at the end :woohoo:

That looks an amazing tour for a distillery!! And samples too.....oh yeah.......

I had no idea they did a blonde rum, we`ll look for that in September and bring it home with us, there are some nice cocktail recipes on their site with both blonde and dark.

Thanks so much for the lovely words shh....always glad to see you comment along the way...:wave2:

Schumigirl, I absolutely love your TRs! They are amazing and have me looking into Universal this fall!

Thank you for the Virgin Atlantic tip! I don't know that we will fly anyone else trans Atlantic and longer! I have the exact same photos of the Nice Sauvignon Blanc flying Virgin to London back late May on our trip to Greece! We were supposed to fly back through London and spend time for the Queen's Jubilee but our flight got cancelled last minute out of Mykonos back to London and we had to fly home through Paris (Paris is my heart and I always love extra time there). The good news is that Air France upgraded us to business and we got to drink Sancerre instead of Sauvignon Blanc on the way back to the states.

BTW, that bird that kid was taunting would have taken the kids finger off if the kid had gotten too close. Those beaks have razor sharp edges and snap a grown snake or rodent in half.

Can't wait for your September trip!

I`m so glad your trip went well!!! I did wonder how you got on in Greece. And glad you got to spend some extra time in Paris. Folks ask why we are so loyal to VA.....well, yes, they may be more expensive usually, but we like the service and flying direct is very important to us. Some folks stop over in places like Philly or similar.....nope, no interest in doing that, it`s a long enough flight as it is.

But, I`m happy to hear you enjoyed flying with them.

I wouldn`t have blamed that bird if it had pecked at that kid who was being a brat. It was the lack of concern from the parents over kid and bird safety that really amazed me. Wow, I didn`t realise they have such lethal beaks either.

Yep, we are excited for September too!!!!
