Should Have Been A Good Idea

Dinner with Marsha and Dennis on Friday night was wonderful and a great way to relax before our trip. Thank you both! Saturday morning we loaded up the Jeep with two gigantic bags to be checked and four pieces to carry on. Did we pack too much or did we charter a too small boat???? We also had Roux, 40 pounds of dog food, a huge dog bed, his medicines and 5 toys! I'm sure we looked like gypsies. We dropped off Roux, checked into a hotel by the airport. The plan was to get a good night's sleep, park the car and take the shuttle. Saturday night we had a very nice dinner with Emily and Tyler at a marina restuarant - perfect to set the mood. We arrived back at the hotel only to find out we had no hot water in the room. After an hour they moved us to another room - the one with the noisy party crowd down the hall. SAINTS WIN!!! Quick get to sleep - well not so fast - remember the party crowd? After no sleep we left at 3:30 to go to the IHOP for breakfast. (note to self - don't go to the IHOP on Military Highway at 3:30 am). But we got to the airport early and had coffee. Everything is feeling better.


  1. while you and duanne are partying at ihop,i want you to know your tree is freezing...jack

  2. We are enjoying your Blog!! I doubt you need reminding NOT to go to IHOP at 3:00 in the morning. We laughed and laughed at your journey journal to THE BOAT! We loved having you guys over and I am impressed at your ability not to be frightened by Dennis's scarey stories (why does he do that?) He is so funny and annoying at the same time.
    We have rain and a bit chilly today. Impossible for your tree to freeze.......Marsha
