Cobbie, my condolences.

Janis, on the other forum Marylin said she can't make it.

Oh Cobbie, I am sorry, I was looking forward to seeing you. My sympathy to your friend. And of course you will need to be with her. Take care.

For any "fence sitters" Can't tell you what - but we have a BIG surprise in store on Saturday.

You'll kick yourselves if you don't come. There, how is that for a hard sell?

A surprise?? You're bringing Rick Steves?? (just kidding). I am trying to persuade Mr. MichelleY to join us, but he thinks this is too weird meeting people from the internet.

Janis: I think we have met. Did you do a slide show for my garden club last month???

Wishing y'all a wonderful GTG tomorrow.

Down here in Texas, we're having our own GTG at the same time. Sure wish we could have hooked up with the webcam, but alas, it is not to be.

We'll toast one to you! <)

Yes swisshiker, we will be toasting all of you at your GTG. And happily we have blue sky and sunshine here in the Sacramento Valley so tomorrow will be beautiful.

Hi janisj, I am sure looking forward to being with all of you tomorrow!

I just got a call from a good friend from high school. She is flying into Sacto tonight to visit relatives. Of course she wants to meet for lunch tomorrow. I have not seen her in serveral years, so I could not say no. Now I have to cancel lunch with you....WAAAAA. I was really looking forward to meeting everyone.

Have a fun time and take photos to share on Fodor's.

Yeah, but it will take several of yours to make one of ours!!

After all, everything's bigger in Texas!

Our GTG is set to begin at 12:30 with lunch and margaritas at the historic Grist Mill..

..followed by a tour of Gruene Hall (very famous honky tonk / dance hall - remember the movie "Michael" with John Travolta? It was filmed here!), where they've got a HUGE bar. More drinkin...

...followed by the Grapevine, a wine bar. more ... hic..

Should be fun...hic...

Thanks for checking janisj, yes as dear Paula said she is picking me up, I feel better that she will be coming through here rather than make the trip down from Sacramento and back again.

Now if LindaL and Faina drop me off on the way home you darlings in Sacramento won't be stuck with me, lol.

Being silly of course..I know they will. Until tomorrow!!

BarbAnn: Of course you'll want to have lunch w/ your friend. By why not come by the Pyramid after lunch - bring your friend along. We will be there much of the afternoon. Like I said - we have a big treat and you don't want to miss out
