  19. I made a reservation for July 4, at Sheraton Fisherman's Wharf Hotel on 3-14. Room rate as suggested above. Received a confirmation # by text and email. I thought all was good. Yesterday, 5-6-19, I received a text from the hotel indicating my reservation had been cancelled. I did not request the cancellation. I was told that someone cancelled my reservation on line. I have the name, that I will disclose if anyone has any suggestions as to what may have happened. So, I made another reservation. We will see what happens with this one. Hope this is just a fluke and no one else has this trouble.
  20. Lowell and I are going on The Big Loop with Paul & Tina S. and you and are working on booking rooms now.
