Fantastic Blue Diamond transportation

This has been an amazing trip. I feel really relaxed and happy --- and grateful.

I've already thanked Lou for being my perfect travel agent.

But none of this could have happened without my Blue Diamond limo.

Physically, I needed to be able to lie down and stretch out for the 3.5 hour ride. Scrunched in the back of a car would not have been good enough. Sure, I would have gotten here, but then I would've needed a day and a half to bounce back.

Fiscally, taking the limo would have broken the budget at $1800.00.

But our neighbor Bob is their Senior Driver, and he talked to Carrie Peele.  
Bob says that Carrie does a lot with the American Cancer Society in North Carolina, and knows how to deliver joy to a person in need.

I dunno if I'm supposed to spill the beans on the screaming deal she gave us, but we are basically just paying the IRS rate for the limo ($520), plus whatever we give our buddy Bob.

If you're in need of a limo, do me a favor and consider using Blue Diamond as a way to thank them for me.

Oh great, now I am a little choked up.

Hi Karen and Lou, Thank you so much for all the wonderful updates about your vacation. I sounds like the most fabulous time and especially I liked all the descriptions about dinner last night. Makes me wish I was there with you!! I hope that your ride home in the limo goes well and that you also took lots of pictures to post. Love you so much and wishing you an awesome upcoming weekend!! xoxo Debbie P. from Bellevue

Will do, Karen. It's good to know about people--and companies--that care. There more of both out there than one would think.

Hope you are continuing to have a lovely time.

How many dogs does it take to change a light bulb?

Lab: Oh, me, me!!!!! Pleeeeeeeeeze let me change the light bulb! Can I? Can I? Huh? Huh? Huh? Can I? Pleeeeeeeeeze, please, please, please!

Golden Retriever: The sun is shining, the day is young, and you're inside worrying about a stupid burned out bulb?

German Shepherd: I'll change it as soon as I lead these people from the dark, check to make sure I don't miss any, and make just one more perimeter patrol to see that no one takes advantage of the situation.

Border Collie: Just one. And then I'll replace any wiring that's not up to code.

Dachshund: You know I can't reach that stupid lamp!

Rottweiler: Make me.

Boxer: Who cares? I can still play with my squeaky toys in the dark.

Old English Sheep Dog: Light bulb? I'm sorry, but I don't see a light bulb!
