Just spoke to GDerr on the phone and we were trying to finalize the plans for this wonderful vacation. Claire and Gary are staying in the Celadon Condo Resort right on the beach....and Pelicangal, Robogramma, and I also have a condo on the eight floor there....so for sure we will have 2 kitchens available and everyone is welcome to hang out at the beach there together. I believe there are still some nightly condos available. http://www.vrbo.com/vacation-rentals/usa/florida/north-west/panama-city-beach/gulf-resort-beach/celadon<
Nightly rates are  $89-$135 from what I see....this is directly on the beach, too!
   The dates are Sept 22- Sept 25 with the actual get-together on Saturday, Sept. 24th at noon, at Hunt's Oyster Bar and Restaurant.  http://www.huntsoysterbar.com/  No plans have been made for Thursday night or Friday, except settling in and hitting the beach! Gary wants to go to Capt. Andersons's seafood restaurant   http://captanderson.com/menus/menu_dinner.htm<   one night so we'll fit that in some where....they only open at 4:30 pm.If anyone has a better suggestions for a better restaurant, please let me know! These are the recs we've recieved so far and sound pretty good from their websites, but nothing is set in stone until we get a little closer to the date.
 Here is the list of attendees I have so far:

Gary and Claire Derr
Cindy Lepp
Staci and Hubby
Arich and hubby

Sherry and hubby (We will miss you both!)
Cindy in Pensacola and hubby(We will miss you so much!....Stop by on Sunday?)
MickDee and hubby (Just got confirmation, they will not be able to make it this year....We will miss you two!)

If there is anyone interested...please contact me at cindylepp at yahoo, write PANAMA CITY in the Subject line so I don't miss it! You are welcome to just stay a day,  the whole weekend or as long as you want! The more the Merrier! Looking forward to meeting everyone next month! I'm EXCITED!

Aug. 28, 2011 1:44 pm
Funny Patty Cakes mentions Jimmy Buffett because there is a Margaritaville here... Not that anyone would enjoy a margarita though ;)
Aug. 28, 2011 2:00 pm
I'm with you Patty, but you know parrot heads will party anywhere,we don't need a tradmark for a good time. That said I'm gonna try to stop at LuLu's on the way back home.
Aug. 28, 2011 2:07 pm

About Me
Down here in Central Coast Florida since late Aug. 2012. I still cook and bake and its so good to be around family again!
My favorite things to cook
There is just one of me but I do cook dinner almost every night. I love easy dishes on the nights I really don't feel like cooking. Grandmommy Capps lived in Rocky Mount, NC....Sundays were a holiday! Dinner was at 2pm. Leftovers were snacks later(dark thirty)....she was a great biscuit and piemaker. Being the oldest of 23 grandchildren, I was the BEST dishwasher! Hand wash everything in a washpan! I know....you've never heard of it??? You need one to play as your wash sink,and then you rinse in the kitchen sink.....It was fun.....no air dry either....someone had to dry ALL the dishes! I love my Sis for that!
My favorite family cooking traditions
We have ham, blackeyed peas, collard greens, and corn muffins on New Year's Day for good luck! Peanut blossums are my favorite cookie for Christmas!
My cooking triumphs
"Banana Crumb Muffins" were delicious & gorgeous,looked store-bought!
My cooking tragedies
I have left the neck(in the bag) in the turkey in the past 5 years! I should know better! Always rememember to check BOTH ends of the turkey before you cook it! I'm Blonde...Sheesh!!
