    Thanks, beerbelly and Eastcoastmom. I have looked at airbnb, so I am glad to hear from someone who had a good experience using them. Much appreciated.

    We used AirBNB last summer and had great success. I think it would be very individual, though, so read any comments past guests have posted.

    If I didn't know better, I'd swear that sounded like a drug buy.

    Have fun, both of you.

    Mr. Christian and I just had a wonderful couple of hours with Mr. and Mrs. Punkin. We didn't even feel like strangers when we met, but we REALLY felt like friends when we parted. It is my fondest hope to get to see them again when our paths cross . . . perhaps on a cruise ship or some other awesome destination.

    Hugs, Punkin! Thanks for the wonderful gift of a bottle of moscato . . . a glass of which I will raise in your honor from our balcony one evening. You are a treasure!

    We had a wonderful meeting and clicked right away. We had dinner at the restaurant where they are staying and the guys hardly could get a word in edgewise as we chattered away. We also met their good friends from Kansas who have cruised with them before and are joining them on this 50th Anniversary cruise. Both couples drove here and are staying at a hotel where they can leave their cars during the cruise because they are continuing to travel after the cruise. AZ and her DH (who is a sweetheart) are going to hit their 50th state during the post-cruise travels!

    My husband was surprised we seemed to be such good friends already because he doesn't understand the friendships we form here at The Fort. But I'm sure many of you understand how we get to know each other as real, if just online, friends who share our lives with each other here every day. I love so many of you and I just met one of my dearest friends here!

    PS - and, D, I told the squirrel story to much amusement for all. LOL Love you!
