That's not true. You haven't been to my house.

Yet.

And then you'd know not to get your camera out.

You're welcome anytime dweez.
Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

There is an exception to every rule, apart from this one.

You really have to stretch the meaning of the word "developed" for some places.

Particularly some places in Alabama.

A bit like King's Cross then?

I guess I just mean compared to what it was when I lived there. We had to go to the next town for anything. Now it has its own stuff.

I booked another trip to St Lucia on August the 4th, 2 days after my dreaded birthday. 

Only staying 13 days this time as the flights out there are extraordinary in price, and even then I had to pay £3500 for 2 adults and 2 children.

Next year my son will no longer be classed as a child even though he'll still only be 12, so prices would be even higher. Either way it may be the last holiday in the Caribbean until the kids move out or are old enough to pay for their own flights.

I fancy Kerala next year.

Well, looks like I'll be going to Alabama this summer to visit my half sister while we wait for the foster care system to get us sorted. Oxford Alabama has only recently been more developed so there aren't really pretty pictures for me to link. But when I go I'll take some.

Did I miss something?  I think you said something about her having an unhappy marriage?  I can't remember any comments about foster care.

I've never spent time in Alabama.  I guess parts of it are pretty.  I sure could use a seaside vacation somewhere warm.  I miss the East coast.  Thanks for the pix ohcheap1.

It's OC's thread isn't it?  I thought the clue was in its title.

Lol, I know you used the thread properly.  Just no one had posted since 1 year ago (to the day).  Whether you intentionally did it or not, 6pairs got duped! :D

I'm a tightwad and didn't want to waste database space with a 2014 summer vacation topic, so I recycled.

That's fine.  I got confused and didn't see the 2013 date of her post.  Frankly, I was surprised and pleased to see her back posting, but now I realize it was just wishful thinking.  I hope she's ok.

Vacation?  What vacation?  I'm still mopping up the chaos from the end of last semester.  My house looks like it was hit by a concussion bomb.  I'm emptying closets in advance of a huge garage sale.  There's too much stuff here and it's got to go.  I hope to get to the ocean for a day or so.  That's about all we can manage.  Still it's such a pleasure, we really look forward to it.

She hasn't posted on there in months, either, although she was quite active when the fora was first back up and running.

Have fun goldie.  I hope you have good weather in Germany.  The summer I studied there, it was wet and cold.  I froze.

Did I really say that ^.  I can feel myself pushing the button for more flights this year.
