Bruce's 'lady friend', a hot chick from Amsterdam, has offered us her place to stay in the heart of Amsterdam (on the Leidsplein!!!) for a couple of days - how cool is that???
I sooooo much look forward to this trip and I thank my wonderful staff for making it possible!!! yeah, you know who you are....
Tomorrow evening we head to Tampa. We were going to park our car at another friends house (they sure do come in handy, I love having friends everywhere!!), but she was 40 minutes from the airport and the taxi would have cost us $60. We're doing this on a budget remember? So we're going to take the owner of Grams-inn-tampa.com up on his offer to let us park our car near his property for 3 weeks. After all, he's about 10 minutes from the airport, and he's a kindred soul. His place is better than the Pirate Haus, in that he owns the property, so he can do all the cool things he's done there. Gram's is 80% like the place I dream of owning. We pretty much packed yesterday, and Fran arrived back yesterday to run the Inn while we're gone so it's like we've got the final green light on the 'Christmas Tree' at a drag race....April is the organized one, my god, we've got a spreadsheet of where we'll be. I do appreciate that myself because like my Dad said, "if you don't have a plan, you can't change it", still I long for the footloose and fancy free days of traveling with no schedule.
