  • Barb F.

    Billi-Jo, I hadn’t read it carefully enough to know that it is Melissa that I should be calling about the deposit. Anyway, I just now (Sat, Feb 15) left a voice mail with Melissa saying I want to go and will pay the deposit by credit card when she gets back to me.

    1 · February 15, 2014

    • Billi-Jo I.

      Melissa is fast to return calls so jappy u r joining our fsbulous trip!

      February 15, 2014

    • Barb F.

      I didn’t hear back from Melissa this afternoon but, after all, this Saturday is part of the long holiday weekend. I am sure it will still be okay when we do get hold of each other.

      February 15, 2014

  • Barb F.

    I just worked things out that I can attend!!!!!! Now
    I see that the deposit was due yesterday! But I am away in Arizona until Feb 20. Can you trust me to pay on Feb 21? I’ll phone you! By the way, I stayed at that Ramada for one night last September and it was just fine.
