    Recieved a text from our very own Terry earlier today.
    He says they are having a great time - very hot with no rain for a change. He was watching the F1 qually over breakfast (whatever that means)

    Yeah, he said he's having a great time and it is very hot

    When they checked in at the Grand Floridian they were named Guests of Honour and upgraded to concierge. He could sweet talk the hind legs off a a donkey, I've seen him in action and believe me it's true

    What it means is he's watching the qualifying races for the F1 Silverstone Race tomorrow. Terry is a huge F1 fan

    Definitely Tom, he is just so smooth, I love watching him in action.

    When we went to Gaylord Palms with him and Sue, we pulled up to valet and he started talking to the young guy as if he knew him. When Chris handed over the keys, the guy said "I'll just park this over there sir so there won't be a wait when you return".

    Chris asked if Terry had seen him before and he said no - our suv was parked with all the posh ferraris, mercs, bmws etc

    Having seen it myself Wendy I have no trouble believing that. It's quite remarkable to see. He's being friendly but it goes beyond that in some fashion. As my DW says "everybody likes Terry". But somehow it's more than that. I don't know exactly what it is or how he does it but I certainly wish I had more of it.

    Whatever "it" is.

    Tom (... lacking some of "it"...)

    I think it's because he's a true gentleman and he just oozes charisma

    He is genuine. He doesn't "try," he just is. He and his wife are so very kind and warm. Good to know they are enjoying their time and if anyone deserves an upgrade at the GF it would be THEM!

    I can't wait to hear about it. :D Hopefully, he has taken some photos. :D :D :D

    I did ask him to take some photos and we'd also need a trip report :D
