Today, I went to have coffee with some 3D friends. Between their schedule and mine, I haven't seen them for about 4 weeks. We had lots to catch up on and they found out about this trip today.

One of them has quite a number of books, including all the Janet Evanovich books and I asked to borrow a couple from her.

She's gone one better....she's going to loan me her Kindle to take on the plane; including all the 500 or so titles that she has. All the Janet Evanovichs, all the Marian Keyes, Lisa Lutz and then some!

I hope she remembers to bring it on Thursday!


Thanks tiggrbaby....someone heard you!
Whoa! Can I say that I want to win the lottery and have someone listen?

Seriously, I'm glad that this is working out so well for you!

I'm glad it's working out too. And if you win the lottery, please remember me.

My friend has "talking books" as well. She promised to download some for me as well.

You mentioned that Fran has been reading the Stephanie Plums and I can't remember if I asked if you were as well. I think we did have this conversation and that you hadn't? If so....was the weekend jaunt the first time you'd read/heard any of the series?

I have to admit that I was really disappointed with the movie. The character portrayals just seemed lacking in comparison with the way JE describes them in the book.

That was the first of her books that I've listened to. We didn't see the movie.

So it's one week until your plane leaves so I thought I'd give you a weather report. It's nice right now, mid 70s, but it's supposed to warm up for the next couple days and then cool down again, back to the 70s. Unless some big front comes in, we should have nice weather.

On another note, I just saw the podiatrist and got a cortisone shot in my foot because the pain is starting to come back. I've decided to use the scooter since I did something to my knee last week. I can walk through the queues for the rides. I just can't be on my feet all day.

Sounds like a great decision.

Your plans sound great and you'll have a nice week unwinding from all the stress of work and your daily routine!
Alison - I checked out the winery (link here for those interested). It looks interesting but I'm not sure I want to book myself in for a tour on this trip. I really didn't want to lock myself in on a schedule as I might just feel like chill-axing on this trip. Maybe next trip or if I'm driving past, I might just pop in to see if there is a spare spot at the 11 am or 2 pm tours. Thanks for the recommendation.

I will have a scooter too! We can race!!

I can walk too but, not for 5 miles a day, day after day. This is a vacation, not a death march!

Okay PIO, I'm up to page 18, you didn't tell me this was a two-fer-one Trip Report starting in 2010!

First of all, thanks so much (I knew you wouldn't let me down) for all the fabulous photos especially the food porn. I don't know if you're aware of this, but I bought Jen some fancy lens for her (what used to be mine) camera just for the purpose of food porn that she blogs now... all thanks to my continuous remarks of how PIO's food pics were just so delicious in the old What's For Dinner thread.

Thanks for telling such great stories of these trips you're taking with your family and meeting these other DISers, I've completely forgotten about the laundry in the washer and whatever else I was supposed to accomplish today. I'm saving the second half for tomorrow.

And thanks for linking me to this TR, the one coming up, I'm really excited.

TOURS!!!!!!!! This is new! I've never been on a tour! We have always just brought up a picnic lunch, did the wine tasting and picked out a bottle from the tasting and went to find a picnic table and drank the bottle(s) with our picnic. I didn't know they have added tours, I'll have to check that out for when Fran feels better again.

I reccomended it to you more for the view and potential tasting option. The views are spectacular, but I didn't realize there was a tour and destination.

Fran always lets ME win! I can walk, but not over a mile. About four to five years ago I marched in my last Pride Parade and was crippled for three weeks afterwards. I just started seeing a podiatrist and he will be fitting me for orthodics next week, but I have tendonitis in the muscles on my fifth metatarcel from a prior break in 1999. It got really bad starting around 2006 and I have been using Fran's "hand-me-down" scooters ever since to get around the parks. Mainly because I would tire before Fran since she was riding and I was walking, but once I couldn't do a mile we started bringing a scooter for me if it was more than just a trip for dinner.

Yesterday the podaitrist told me to take the scooter because I had a cortisone shot to the foot in anticipation of PIO's trip. I figure I'll walk the queues and leave the scooter to get from place to place. Do you have your own, or do you have to use one of those clunky huge Disney scooters?
