    Englewood as on the west coast of Florida? That'll be a long day trip to WDW. :D

    Yes, we are getting quite a taste for the way of life on the Gulf - we just want to do a couple of days in the parks and kick back on the beaches.

    Of course I have my pool cleaning and yard maintenance duties to complete at your residence also.

    Well, I was hoping that you'd not forgotten your responsibilities! :D

    Englewood is a lovely area. Not congested or overly "done." I'm glad you found it and like it!!

    Yes, a couple days in the parks and then enjoying the sun and sea of Florida is a nice plan.

    Would you be flying into Orlando then, or Ft. Myers? (It's an International Airport, too).

    We would fly into Orlando - I like the little train that is there and the security folks are so kindly.

    THere are no direct flights from UK to Ft Myers - I think, so that's a no no really. I enjoy the run down from Orlando - we get to stop in exciting out the way places where they don't get so many pasty white Welsh people. It really is a great deal more interesting to stop at a Pizza Hut with a load of truck drivers. Incidentally every time we visit a Pizza Hut there is always a cop there - is this a rule for US Pizza Huts? Or are they afraid someone is gonna hit the hut?


    Yes, just have to work on Diane now to convince her that we can complete the works in time to holiday in Florida.

    Do you have one of those big nets for skimming the bugs off the surface of the pool - or should I bring mine?

    We have a net! We have a sweeper too. And a vacuum! You will be in business. We also have comfy new lounge chairs for your nap after all the work is done. :D :D

    You've just reminded me that everytime I visited a Hut in Michigan there was a cop in there. And there was one in the Tucson one I visited. It must be a standard duty stop for them in that case. Probably just before Dunkin Donuts.

    Now that's a profession I could grow to like - wonder if they take older people?

    We went once in early May to be there for Mother's day and it was quite warm with temperatures in the 90s. We weren't expecting quite that much heat. Fortunately the humidity was low.

    There is something about pizza and doughnuts that seem to be really alluring to our law enforcement people. As of late, Starbucks has been added to the places that draw them in. :D

    It sounds better and better - I will conduct some more research when we visit in April. Diane has almost agreed - a little more arm twisting and we will be on our way.
