Norm's gonna run! This goes completely against his theory of couch sitting and exercising as little as possible. Pictures please.

That's why I moved here... still looking for Miami Beach equivalent in Chicago, the lakefront just isn't the same in February.

Now that, right there, is funny!

Is that Snapper's? If so, great place. I've been there with clients before and loved the atmosphere and fresh catch.

Nope. Snapper's is very good. Haven't been there in a while though. It is a place called Wahoo's around Mile Marker 83.

Hey CJ,

Thanks for the tips on the Keys. Still trying to decide where we will be headed next week. Nothing like waiting until the last minute.

Make sure you don't leave the shelter with an added passenger. I have to drag my DD out of the mall pet stores as soon as she see's the little critters.

I'm getting bombarded on all fronts to get a dog. Very soon the kids will be old enough to help with the food, water, and land mines. Then I will consider giving in.

My DS has allergies, but the pressure is there to get one that is hypoallergenic. We got a Bearded Dragon(lizard) that has held them off for a while, but there is definitely some underground efforts to bring back the dog/cat discussion. Good luck holding off the natives.

We've got the allergy issue as well. We found a goldendoodle (golden retriever / standard poodle mix) that worked well for DW. He's a bundle of energy too which is good with the kids.

Noted. For the next time I'm in the neighborhood and need a place to go.

Well, either everyone views me as a formidable challenge, or just realizes as easy victory as I currently get winded instructing the children to walk to the mailbox.

It may be worth an effort to train for it; however, we don't arrive at WDW until October 5 around 6:30 AM, and that is me leaving Friday around 4:00 PM. It will be difficult for me to make the race. Maybe next time.
