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.

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....

Have fun!
OMG Ed and I want to go so bad! You all deserve this honeymoon and yes you do have the best staff around. If we ever get to moving maybe I can become staff! Be sure to keep us updated and post PICTURES! That way we can live the trip with you. Oh Graham's place just because he owns the property doesn't make it better I mean the Pirate Haus is awesome and we can talk like pirates and drink rum all day there! It's a pretty good gig! We will miss you both when you are gone of course we miss you both now. Weather has changed and I would love some sunny days but hey July will be here before we know it! Love you both and have some good cheese and wine for me cause you know those are my favorite!
