You really ARE back, Rusty. You've updated the AYCTE thread post #1 on the Dining Forum. Folks will be thrilled.

Next time you are at Trails End for a breakfast or dinner, can you throw some construction pictures of the new resort our way?

Unpack your bags and relax for a while.

    1) Thanks, Ed, for the re-welcome.
    2) However, we can only unpack MY stuff.
    3) I had the Kentucky Derby Long-Shot and it paid 65-to-1.
    . . . $132.40 . . . $56.60 . . . $24.60
    4) Of course Mrs. Scupper noticed the checking account deposit.
    5) So, she is going to London in two months and taking her BFF for two weeks.
    6) Everything is prepaid, except the "Tube Pass" for 12-days (good for unlimited "Tube", train, bus transport).
    . . . scheduled: trip to Princess Diana property and house tour
    . . . scheduled: walk across the "Beatles Crosswalk" on the EXACT 50th-anniversary day
    . . . scheduled: tours of Liverpool Beatles' houses - first time all four residences have been open
    . . . scheduled: trip to Dulwich to visit retired cousin
    . . . scheduled: tour of Buckingham Castle and Afternoon Tea
    . . . scheduled: shopping day at Selfridges department store and "spa" day
    . . . optional: one live musical - we previously saw Lion King in London, so don't need again

    NOTE:
    For many years, she has put up with my expenses such as country club memberships.
    I could hardly even question or mention such an extravagance on "found" money.
    (Of course, I did have my eye on the new Taylormade driver for Senior Golfers.)

    Welcome back!

    Sounds like you might have done a south pacific cruise. Hope you enjoyed it!
    1) No cruise.
    2) We are not fond or "cruising".
    3) Having worked in Asia, I planned out where to go and what to do.
    4) We flew Biz-Class and stayed in minimum 4-Star hotels for 40-days.
    5) At our age, I was not going to go "on-the-cheap".
    6) We saved for travel, and are spending those savings on nice trips.

    NOTE:
    We thought about New Zealand Air, as I have had good service on them.
    However, Virgin Australia got new Boeing 777's, and have GREAT reviews.
    . . . A true upscale experience for air travel of 14-hours. (Not counting Orlando to LAX segments.)
    . . . Biz Class, literally, was a suite for each person.
    . . . There is a real bar in the rear of the Biz Class Section with stools and a bartender.
    . . . Each way, they gave us really nice pajamas, which we now wear at home for lounging and bedtime.

    Rusty,

    See if you and DW can squeeze us in on your calendar/planner for a Fort DISMeet we are planning for October 2020 (most appear to be coming in the weekend of October 10/11, 2020 and we plan to have a kickoff lunch/event on Monday October 12, 2020. We have a thread going regarding the event (currently stickied) but it has been made known to me that TRS's presence would be a huge drawing card. I know it's a year off but I just want to make sure I get in line.

    PS - oh so your long shot came in? good for you (and Mrs. Scupper). BTW, if you have a minute, can you give me a couple picks for the PowerBall numbers? 'Preciate it.
