Moiraine that's great your Mom is willing to move in with you. I have been trying to get mom and dad to move in but they are set in their ways and won't do it and want to stay in their home. Their home is too big for them plus they are getting older.
I hear Galveston is a nice area to visit however that trip from the airport to pier is a pain. I got a rate of $200. roundtrip from a shuttle company. I'll give it some thought. What ship were you on at that time??
