    Pretty good hall Lou, Google says 2 1/2 - 3 hours, dependent upon where he's at in Orlando, I don't necessarily drive as slow as Lou, but don't tell him that! Then you've got possible toll booths every half mile for 20 miles, in 3-4 directions, in that lovely community, when you get there.

    I'll be within an hour or so of Orlando on Thursday, but that's an hour out of the way, and an hour back on an already 8+ hour day on the road. Have to make a trip to Largo, suburb west side of Tampa, and pick up a set of harrows I stole on an on-line government auction yesterday. 3 1/2 hours down, 45 minutes to clear paperwork, load, and tie down, 3 1/2 hours back, gotta stop somewhere and eat breakfast and lunch, never know with traffic on the interstate. Especially near big cities. Leaving here 6:30 - 7ish in the am, to avoid rush hours.

    Over to Lou's house, might not be bad, 200+ miles up here to my house, might get ugly!

    Besides if he delivered I couldn't have breakfast at the Café Risqué!

    I don't tell her about such things!

    Well, occasionally, when I carry monkeys with me.

    Gotta eat somewhere, and the food is actually very good and reasonably priced there. Waitress at breakfast wears a garter to carry her tips, ticket book, and pen, there's no pockets on her uniform!

    I don't even ask mine anymore, isn't even taken as humorous and then I have to ride with her grumpy ass for another hour! This is not to mention every time I drive by the place in the course of work, I get accused of stopping there. When I only stopped there maybe once a year when working down there. And, that was usually to eat! In all honesty, the food really is good, and priced as reasonably as places without the entertainment and the morning shift waitresses wear clothes.

    Y'all know I deal with restaurants for my day job. I can tell you that the cleanest kitchen you will ever find is in a strip joint. They don't want to give the health department an excuse to shut them down. Tony

    I don't know what the kitchen looks like, but there's a lot to be said for starting your day having a 25 year old gal wearing nothing but tennis shoes and a smile serving you an omelet!! :good2:
