We arrived here yesterday--Wednesday afternoon--and it's great having a place of our own that we can immediately settle down in. I saw "Fool's Gold" and "The Bucket List" on the plane. The former had some very nice beach and yacht scenes and a pretty goofy story but it was a fun plane movie. The Bucket List was highly recommended by my parents and I liked it a lot--great actors and a great message.
My sister Laurel is joining us for about ten days starting this weekend. She's currently having a marvelous time at the beautiful Greek island of Santorini. Apparently they're sleeping in some kind of cave hotel tonight. She's a teacher and can take these monster vacations (though we're all feeling the pain of the bad exchange rate with the dollar).
