Ah well, we also (for free) are taking a dolphin cruise. I'm REALLY looking forward to that since it's calving season there should be babies to see.
Thanks for the kind wishes all, we had a great time! Didn't get to see any babies clearly, BUT we were informed that it was also mating season and so we saw dolphins involved in what the guide called "suspicious activity",
It was so hot out (24th straight day of temps in the 90s, ), that it felt good to be out on the water AND to get a different perspective of the land and landmarks that you miss when you're driving.

Dinner was at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse (we had a gift certificate) and the manager who is a friend of my general manager, sent us over a tray of their desserts.

Now back to the real world.

Sounds lovely Cindy. I'm hoping to be visit my son & his family in Atlanta next year at this time so will have to convince them to do a road trip to Savannah to see the dolphins engage in some "suspicious activity"

Your son has 'family', I think he's worked it out for himself. I repeat, you're a pervert.

My sister told me some "facts" about the US that were on a UK TV show last night.

Apparently many Americans sell their blood to blood banks to try and get by. That is when they aren't selling sperm. There was much tut-tutting with what probably happens with bidding for organs to stay alive. Also, apparently all Americans deny global warming exists (man-made or not) in spite of the killer tornadoes of late, the New Orleans flooding, or the current months long heat wave gripping the North East. Lastly, in some bizzaro Solomon and the baby story - when Americans divorce the courts will assign someone to deal with their pets - by threatening to cut them in half. The person who calls the massacre off gets the pet. This was played in it's entirety from an episode of QI where Stephen Fry and guests dont for one second imagine it to be total bollocks.

FACT.
