I used to love Tony Roma's. I was there last in the late 80's when I lived in Arizona. I can't wait!!!

Oh yes I am excited to see all of you! I know this may be the only chance I get to meet Jackie and Liam so I must come on out! I wouldn't miss it for the world.

Ray thanks for putting all of this together, it is so sweet of you!

Jackie thanks for asking him to. It was a brilliant idea.

See you all in December!

Likewise, Beenie Weenie, I think it is great you fly down to meet total strangers

Ray, I copied this to CTC. We have some there that might not get in here.

Now that is a party I would not want to miss, but sadly, I must. Just too long of a trek for dinner! But I will be anxiously awaiting Ray's photos...have a great time all!

Well some of us are not exactly total strangers. A few of us are, but won't be for long!

Really this will be a very nice little getaway for me and I am very happy just to have a few days to meet all of you and to also reconnect with some old friends who now live down in Florida, I haven't seen in many years. Not to mention, at that point in time it should start getting pretty cold up here and snow could be in the forecast. I am really looking forward to a warm climate even if it is just for a few days.

Ray, I sure would like to come up to Orlando for that. Jake wouldn't be able to make it on a Monday, but maybe someone else from the Palm Beach area would like to come along and keep me company and stay over somewhere Monday night.

I hope we'll be able to make it, Ray. I really look forward to seeing Jackie once again (this will be the 3rd or 4th time, right Jackie?), and of course I've been dying to meet our Kiwi mate Liam for some time now. And although I don't spend much time here on CruiseMates these days, I will certainly enjoy meeting the always charming Beenie Weenie.

I've been having a hard time navigating these days, Ray, due to something I've acquired called "peripheral neuropathy". I was diagnosed with this annoying and frequently painful condition a month ago, and it explains what was causing a bunch of physical problems I've been experiencing over the past couple of years following my back surgery.

Kim and I will be returning from a cruise on December 4th, one day after Kim's Medicare birthday and, if I'm feeling good enough to make it, we'll be there at Tony Roma's on the 6th. I'd say that the chances are good, maybe 80%, that we'll be there. So put us on your list, and I'll call you if we won't be able to make it.

Dear Jack, I am sorry to hear about your physical probs. I really do hope you two can make it. Enjoy your cruise. We come back the 4th as well

This dinner is I thought my 4th.

Please take care! xxx

Like I said on the phone, you can count us in. Harry has been feeling better lately so we should be able to make it. Will be good to meet Liam and Beenie Weenie and see Jackie again.

Ray, I am planning to be there. Meeting Liam and Beenie Weenie is something to look forward to. Seeing Jackie and all the rest again should be fun too. I always enjoy these gatherings and always have fun.

If I could find a fare I could live with, I would really consider popping down!

Phyll, I have no idea of geography, but if you are in Palm beach 100 K of miami, maybe an alternative is to come down to Fort Lauderdale on november 19? Liam, Angela, my hubby and I are there pre-cruise.

Wait - Jackie, you are going to be in FLL on the 19th?
We will be arriving back from our cruise on Nov. 19 and will be heading for the airport that morning. Is there any chance we may cross paths?
Would be a shame to miss an opportunity!
