LEARN TO BE CALM AND YOU WILL ALWAYS BE HAPPY!
We spent the weekend on Jekyll Island, Ga for an absolutely beautiful wedding. It was the most beautiful wedding I had ever been to. I guess when budget is not a concern, you can fly the moon! The weather was perfect, sunny in the 70's. The venue was the Crane Cottage, a turn of the century cottage owned by the plumbing King, Mr. Crane. The island was orginally purchased in the late 1800's by a group of rich Americans, J.P.Morgan, Fitzpatrick, and other wealthy persons of that era! I'll have to google and learn more. The Island was purchased by the state of Georgia in the mid 1900's.
Now that I've been there, I don't need to go back as it isn't that big of a place. We rented a 3 br condo for us, our son, wife and grandsons ( 3 of them were in the wedding) My Daughter inlaws sister and her significant other and niece who came to baby sit the baby while we went to the wedding. It was very expensive and that condo was less than exciting. As a decorator, it definitely needed some updating. Really tacky.
We had a wonderful time except on Sat while we all expected to watch the FSU Boston College football game, the cable was out. In fact the cable was out when we arrived on Friday and never came on the whole weekend. We went a whole weekend with no TV, no news, no football. My son had his laptop and was able to bring up the game on it via internet so we did get to watch or we would have had to go out to a sports bar somewhere. And FSU won! $550 for 2 nights in a tacky condo with no cable. They did take $88 off our bill because we complained so much. I didn't really miss the TV because I was out half the time but our babysitters didn't have much to do.
Anyway, we had a lovely time! And I didn't eat too much! Back now and back to work!
