Subject: Re: What I will be doing on my Summer Vacation....
Hi all,

Reading Tom's post about buying dinner for a woman who has never traveled made me think about our planned fall vacation. I'm celebrating my 60th in Paris. We invited our adult kids to join us at our expense, and extended the invitation to the birthday dinner to all of our friends. And we're delighted that our son-in-law (who has never owned a passport) and our daughter will be joining us, as well as our son (who figured out years ago that travel with us was a good thing). Not only that, we have at least three friends joining us in Paris for dinner who have never crossed the Atlantic. It's amazing what a free dinner will get people to do!
