Gargles in the rat race choir
Bent out of shape from society's pliers
Cares not to come up any higher
But rather get you down in the hole
That he's in.

LD, our family went to Kennywood last summer. It was the first time I'd been there since I was in junior high school back in the mid-70's. It was so fun to introduce our kids to the place, at least some of which was still the same. The last time I had a boat out on the lake, they had actual rowboats (they're all paddle boats now) and I was rowing one of my first dates around. Thirteen actually wrote a very good short story for school about her first experience with the Jack Rabbit - she loved the feeling that I'm sure you remember when you go down the "double dip" hill.

As for this year, we're keeping it simple: a trip to Cedar Point, up on Lake Erie, and a new nearby water park.

Because I can not windsurf South Padre because of recent shoulder surgery.
Suppose we will rent a Hobie Cat and splash around.
We will have to find a suite or two rooms because I snore louder than the biggest Yamaha, piano or motorcycle.

Oooh - Dwain - I love Cedar Point! I'm just across the lake, and really need to head back there again soon. It's been quite awhile since I've been there, but I'd love to go back!

Give a shout when you are coming and perhaps we could meet! smile

We haven't gotten there yet. We live quarter to quarter wondering if Mr. Beelady will be employed so we don't plan big vacations.

We do plan to head to Chicago next month for a nephew's HS graduation. It will be the first time we have flown in nearly 5 years!

Where in Mass are you, BeeLady? I stay in Ashland (which I believe is near Framingham? I have no clue about MA geography!) when I'm there.

I'm not sure if you remember my story about the creepy guy in the bookstore, but that was at the B&N near the Natick Mall.

I'll have to keep you in mind next time I'm out there!

Bee Lady, when will you be in Chicago? I'll be there for a conference next month. If we're there the same time, let's try to meet. PM me.

I'll be going somewhere (don't know where yet) come May 11th. Other than that, probably Boston late June-early July ...

Two short ones this year.

In June I am giving myself a birthday gift and going to see my son in Washington DC. Will spend 4-5 days there. Will have 2 days on my own to see the sights. Since I have seen all the biggies in DC, I am planning on seeing the second tier (and likely more interesting) ones. Unless of course, that is the time when Tom Delay is removed as Majority Leader, in which case I may spend all my time watching the House of Representatives! laugh

In August, my nephew is being married in Tuscaloosa. My sons and I will arrive several days early in Birmingham. We have planned a road trip to Nashville, Memphis, Little Rock and then to Tuscaloosa for the wedding. First time I have been this deep into the Confederacy, except for New Orleans, and am expecting it to be a bit different from what I am used to in Southern California.

If you decide to do the NW anywhere near us (and we're around) I'd love it if you'd stop by.

Late spring in Greece is never too hot, so don't worry about that. Actually, May and September are considered by us locals the best holiday months. Orthodox Easter this year is May 1st, so the island won't be crowded (it's a very popular Easter holiday destination among Greeks) when you arrive. Have a great time! [/b]
We're travelling on the 4th May, so it sounds like we're timing it just right!

We went to Crete last October and loved it; I particularly like looking at the archeological sites, and the Greeks are really friendly. Are you on mainland Greece or one of the islands?

Actually, I should qualify what I said earlier. I'll probably send my family off to Rehoboth Beach in Delaware with my brother and his family. I'll stay back and work...no need to feel sorry for me...really.
Rehoboth is a great place, btw. Just don't go if you're homophobic.
