Egads, vacation shots. But since my flight options into Orlando arrived first thing in the a.m. — first thing as in 2 a.m. — I wanted to give myself a day to recover. Cough, cough. Ah, the exhaustion.
My free day was hijacked by Darla Luke and Su Lute — who call themselves the Luke & Lute show, and now I know why. Darla forced us onto a monorail tour of all central Florida.

And since today, July 28, is my birthday, I’m gonna have fun.
