As long as it's see your kids marry, and not each other, I think you'll be in good shape!

I loved the last one too...it always drives me nuts when we expecct kids to be mini adults.

> Travel outside the US
I can recommend the beaches in The Bahamas.
And you may like Old Europe, especially since you write
that you drink lots of coffee ...

wolfgang, Bahamas beaches sound lovely! And Old Europe too! Actually, I went on a cruise many years ago and one of the stops was at the cruiseline's 'private' island in the Bahamas, but I'm not sure that really counts. lol
