To insure that my December trip to Provence takes place they need to book two more women in the next two weeks..

This is a description of the trip.

Ah Provence....there is no more alluring and magical destination on earth. While Peter Mayle wrote about A Year in Provence, you will have eight incredible days to experience all of the wonders of the French countryside and the French Riviera. You’ll stay in both Aix-en-Provence and Nice and enjoy visits to St. Tropez, Cannes and Monaco! Highlights include visits to the studio dedicated to Paul C├ęzanne, winery tours and tastings, and a private cooking class that highlights the delicate flavors of Southern France. You will also attend a perfume making class and create your very own fragrance to take home. Could there be a more incredible momento of your trip? This is undoubtedly one of our most exciting tours for 2008 so book early to ensure you don’t miss out!

And here is a link to more information. Trip to Provence

Be sure to click on the hotels to see how lovely they are. I am so looking forward to staying at the one in Nice.

So ladies hurry up and sign up. It will be loads of fun!!!

I missed this Saturday night but it's so funny that I'm posting it here.

Monday Morning

I've been back from Merida for a whole week and am still recovering. My poor old body is still on Merida time. We had a good time meeting up with old friends and just exploring the city. We found another bigger Wal-Mart than the one we visited last trip and it was awesome. Here are some pictures of the Produce and Bakery depts. They had a whole aisle dedicated to tequilla.. A wall of bottles and then two rows of special display tables piled high with boxes of it. We bought a nice bottle with glasses for Cathy, who drove us to the airport, but it was confiscated at the flight check-in. Seems you can't take it on the plane in a carry-on. It would have cost twenty dollars to check the bag and the tequilla didn't cost that much. They must have fantastic parties at the airport with all the confiscated booze.
