Welcome back!!!

Loved your commentary about carnival rides... (I know, I know, it was about mumps... but the carnival ride comments hit home... ask my kids how many carnival rides I've ever let them go on... ZERO... and yes, they wear bike helmets, too... even though they are the only kids in the neighborhood that do!)

Keep up the great work!!

Hey, if you move to our neighborhood, we ALL wear helmets. Except one family, but there's not much in those heads to get damaged. :lmao: :confused3

:sad2: :sick:

Sue is not feeling well today....... either a really bad head cold, allergies or a sinus infection. When Sue takes to her bed, she is really feeling bad. So I get to pick up darling Nick (who is going on the cruise ) and Emily. I will have them until BIL picks them up. I do love those two cuties.

This will be my 100th post. A small milestone for me.

Have a good day.

It is titled Tag-A-Longs Double Scoop Group.... May 27, '06

She is eagerly waiting to become the top thread!! princess: :teeth:

When we looked at it this am before school she asked why she was not on top where she was last night when she posted. I explained that she had to keep writing and get lots of other kids to write then it stays on top. She then looked at me and said "So let's get posting. How many do I need to do to be in first place?" AAARRRRGGGHHHH!!!!! :rotfl2:

So let this be a lesson to you all.... This is how addictions get passed through the family! :rotfl:

For all you that have the YES (Yankee Entertainment Station) channel, we'll be at the game tonight, weather permitting. They're playing the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. Hey, that would include a lot of you Florida residents. We'll be on the upper deck, 1st base side. Keep your eyes out for us...:3dglasses . Let's go Yanks!!!

What's that number 52606? That's over 14,800 posts in the next 30 odd days. That's over 490 posts per day!!!

IMHO is we get anywhere CLOSE to that this is going to be an EXTREMELY boring thread. I, personally, like to follow what's going on in ppl's lives---laugh with them, cry with them, pray for them....but with over 490 posts a day there will be too much to even wade through (especially if the server is as slow as it is today) and all the parts that make this group special (the bonds of friendship) will be lost just to get to a certain magic number.

Hey, I may be odd man out thinking like this, but I dread the thought of losing the friendships just because shameless post boosting take precedent over relationships.

Stepping down off my soapbox now.

I agree

I always check Mary's site after being gone for awhile. She's GREAT about keeping things updated & keeping us organized. :thumbsup2

Here's our criteria for the next move, actually the final move:

1. Not too far from an ocean.
2. Nearby University.
3. Low altitude.
4. Affordable housing, comparable to NM.
5. No state income tax.
6. Preferably not near a coast where there are hurricanes!

OK, the last one is new. FL was looking pretty darn good until we added #6! Actually, I'm thinking this place doesn't exist.

They do say that most people try to retire to the places they like to vacation. For us, that's Florida. Of course, if we keep taking expensive vacations, we may not be able to afford to move! And I'm afraid retiring isn't in the equation either. At least, not completely retired. I am "officially" retired, but I'm still working. And Kevin will be working for a long time to come as well. That's one problem with starting a family when you are OLD.

hmm - There's always Houston - if you get over on the other side of Houston - about 1 1/2 hr from the coast - pretty well protected from the hurricanes- meets all of those requirements including major universities - Baylor, Rice, A&M, UT all within driving distance....You only have to watch for hurricanes coming up into the gulf not from both sides like Florida. Further inland there's the hill country with Austin and San Antonio - there about 3-4 hours from Houston/Galveston and the coast...or S.A. always has the option of Corpus about a bit less...

Thanks - we do try and keep it up to date so that no important dates get missed.

Having said that and backing up what Mark said earlier I'm getting on my soap box for a moment:

We set the cut-off dates we do because of the work it takes to get the buttons and navigators ready and also to get them shipped out. We do this as our gift to everyone and to make the DIS group an easy to recognize and fun group.

Every cruise we have done this one someone has come to me after the cut-off and asks for a button. In one case the person had posted right after two of my reminder posts so I know they were on the boards. When I said production was done they threw a fit in pm.

So I'm giving everyone a warning now. If you haven't given us your infomation we need it no later than May 7th.

If we don't have a room number for you we will not make you buttons or add you to the list (sorry but we've been burned by making buttons and then no one picking them up...at least with a room number we can drop them off.)

If you e-mail me but I don't recognize you from the thread you won't be put on the list either. This is supposed to be about DIS friends - not some stranger none of us have ever "met". I know we have some very new people - in fact I had invited DVCDebb over from Cruise Critic. Yet they have all posted on the thread and introduced themselves and that is all we ask.

So that is it. If any of this makes people upset I'm sorry. Sad to say at least once each cruise someone is upset by it. Bottom line you have a little less than 2 weeks to get your info in to me. If you have been lurking up to this point now will be a good time to introduce yourself to the group and get to know each other.

Stepping off my soapbox now. :thanks:

DVCDebb Thanks you so much. I would have never known about this board and all the people I have been talking to if you had not told me. Hopefully I have contributed some info that was helpful to a few people. I have certainly learned a lot. What a great bunch can't wait to meet everyone. :banana: :wave:

We ate at the Prime Steakhouse at the Bellagio...right on the water with the fountains. Anyway, they have another dessert that was wonderful....a warm banana cake with a burnt sugar topping (like creme brulee) set on a warm vanilla sauce. Lucky for me, it's a very small dessert. But I learned a lesson.....do NOT save your tightest slacks for the last day of the trip! :guilty:

Some years ago one DS told him he had "U" hair - took us a bit to figure out it does look like a U when you look down on it!! :goodvibes Then there was the day we bathed the dog while DH was at work. He came home and asked the boys how their day was, etc. They went on to tell him all about washing the dog, how we had to use a lot of shampoo, etc. The oldest son who was probably 4 or 5 at the time looked at DH and said "you don't have to use much shampoo, do you Dad!" :rotfl:

I think somewhere on this messy desk I have made note of a grocery store by WDW and SuperWalmart by the Port. Noone's mentioned Sams Club or Costco - are there any by either? Where's the best place to buy alcohol since I don't think taking it on the plane would be a good idea?

At least there are a few people around here who don't think I'm all that horrible. Quick to be sarcastic, sure. I'll point out a spelling/grammar error here or there IF the error causes me to laugh (I didn't see anyone complaining when I called Jim on his "sit the pot" error---I mean everyone is still USING that one, aren't they?) Would I bend over backwards for just about any one of you....yes. Have I mailed out care packages to several of you over the years....yes. If anyone can find one of my posts which they think I truly said in a mean spirit, I'd love you to PM me with the post number. Thx.

NO! I know you won't find anyone here who thinks you're mean-spirited. You have a GREAT sense of humor, a quick wit and keep us in stitches! :lmao:

When was the last time your husband packed your lunch/dinner 5 days a week? (insert pokey stick guy here)

And today's was YUMMY - Enchilada (sp??). Jim is being VERY supportive of this situation with Lisa. Not many Husbands /Dads would be understanding enough to have their family split each night in order to allow their daughter the opportunity to follow her dream and see how far she can go in her sport. I appreciate him VERY VERY much.

Thanks - we do try and keep it up to date so that no important dates get missed.

Having said that and backing up what Mark said earlier I'm getting on my soap box for a moment:

We set the cut-off dates we do because of the work it takes to get the buttons and navigators ready and also to get them shipped out. We do this as our gift to everyone and to make the DIS group an easy to recognize and fun group.

Every cruise we have done this one someone has come to me after the cut-off and asks for a button. In one case the person had posted right after two of my reminder posts so I know they were on the boards. When I said production was done they threw a fit in pm.

So I'm giving everyone a warning now. If you haven't given us your infomation we need it no later than May 7th.

If we don't have a room number for you we will not make you buttons or add you to the list (sorry but we've been burned by making buttons and then no one picking them up...at least with a room number we can drop them off.)

If you e-mail me but I don't recognize you from the thread you won't be put on the list either. This is supposed to be about DIS friends - not some stranger none of us have ever "met". I know we have some very new people - in fact I had invited DVCDebb over from Cruise Critic. Yet they have all posted on the thread and introduced themselves and that is all we ask.

So that is it. If any of this makes people upset I'm sorry. Sad to say at least once each cruise someone is upset by it. Bottom line you have a little less than 2 weeks to get your info in to me. If you have been lurking up to this point now will be a good time to introduce yourself to the group and get to know each other.

Stepping off my soapbox now. :thanks:

A belated thank your for all you do so the cruise is more fun! :cheer2:

Well - we made it back - got in a couple of hours ago. Trying to finish up getting organzied before Frances and I go back to work - and Lauren to school tomorrow. We had a great time - just too short. Frances commented at how short the cruise was (this is from the wife who had to be begged to go on our first 3 day)...

I gave up trying to keep up with the pages - as it just wasn't going to happen. We had terrible internet access on the ship - and the problems continued at SSR - we had to be given an access code to gain access - (NO - before the comments start - it wasn't because of the Mac....LOL ) They have apparently been having troubles for a week or so.

I'll try to give a more complete report later - just wanted to stop by and say Hi!

It is has been a busy couple of days. This is the first time I checked in since Saturday morning. Saturday was Matt's birthday. He finally got his official set of Jeep keys. He does not have a full license so I'm still in control.

The helicopter lesson was a great big hit.
http://216.77.188.54/coDataImages/p/Groups/251/251591/folders/213679/1880170Matthelicopter.jpg

It was suspose to be about 2 hours long, but ended up being 4 hours. The instructor spent a lot of time with Matt going over all the equipment. Matt got to help with the pre-flight check list. They were in the air for 60 minutes and Matt got to fly half that time. It was a pretty cool experience.

We tried to meet up with Virgil since they were in WDW, but our schedule got messed up. We did make it to the Pie Festival, but got rained on. It did not stop Matt and Lisa from eating. They eat pie for 2 hours.

Big fun.

Gosh - see what I missed..........Great Job Matt!!!!!

If Da Coach needs to start buffing up his speech skills, here's an excerpt from memory:

We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with great confidence and great strength in the air, we shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender!

Well, the Hyatt is weird. We stayed there once for about $130 a night---which was perfect b/c our flight landed about 11:30pm.

Then last year I wanted to stay there when just the kids and I were going down alone (to see Sir Scuba and Grandma Lightbulb) but then it was $230 a night!! We ended up shuttling it to the Hampton Inn which turned out to be very convenient and easy. Don't really know what this stay will cost us, but I KNOW it's not $230 or we'd never have stayed there!!

Speaking of Grandma Lightbult - how is she doing?

Thx for asking. Seems like maintenance chemo has thrown her more for a loop than her treatment chemo. She's quite tired all the time. She'll take a 20 minute walk around the neighborhood and come home and sleep for 3 hours. But, even in spite of that, she's found time to pick up new hobbies--like crochet (KT got a homemade OSU pillow and afghan for Christmas) and stay active in her church....she just won a prize in some show they had (ohioMickey...do you remember what category she won in??)

Her CA-125 (the ovarian chemo blood marker) numbers are GREAT!! Her oncologist is pleased.

So, all in all, things are good. :)

I only know who Anne Hathaway and Natalie Portman are...Had to Google - Helen Clark - Prime Minister of New Zealand...Shari Arison - richest woman in Israel.. hmm - I wonder if I could claim to be a long lost relative :lmao:

I'll have to find a different photo for Mike...

Good morning, all! Happy Humpday! I took off today because Erin has an appointment (FINALLY!) with a urologist - trying to get to the bottom of what's been causing her problems this year. Hopefully we'll get a better diagnosis than, "Oh, just have her do Kegels." Uh, how do you get a 5-year-old to do THAT?!?!?!

Anyway, I figured I'd take the whole day off so we can finish Erin's spring/summer shopping so she'll have something to wear on her feet during the cruise. She's pretty much done in the clothes department (it helps that she can finally get a second year of wear out a season's clothes), but if I see her wearing a skirt with sneakers one more time, I'll scream.

So wish us luck at the doctor's. I really hope we can get some answers...

Be glad she doesn't live in our school district... no sandals, nothing with an open toe or open back, or overly chunky heel... so what does that leave... sneakers... with almost everything... especially for a 12 year old with size 8.5 feet...

Hello... this is FLORIDA... the place where you are SUPPOSED to wear summer shoes year round... nope... not according to the county!

(So, yes, pink Vans or K-Swiss with a skirt is a perfectly acceptable fashion statement around here!)

I'm glad she doesn't have those restrictions on her yet. (Although they don't allow open-toe shoes where she is either.) What a pain! I guess I wouldn't mind the sneakers/skirt combo if the sneakers weren't WAY past their prime. The pink/purple Sketchers were cute 6 months ago, but now they're so grimy and worn, they don't look good with ANYTHING!

Ditto in our elementary school too, except today my 8 year old athletic daughter is wearing a really cute pink top, flared denim skirt and her basketball high tops (not converse...) no, cute fashion statement tennis shoes for her....- although they could wear a sandal with a heel strap and change for recess and PE.

Karen (OhioMinnie) By the way, where are you guys staying the night before?? I am sure Ashley would love to meet KT before the cruise. I know there are several of us at the Rad, but now I don't remember who all is staying there. I had thought about trying one of the newer places, but I got a really good rate at the Rad. and the kids love the pool there.


Pam... What kind of special rate did you get at the Rad?? I think ours was not great... holiday weekend?? Anyway it was not nearly as good as the rate we got last time! :furious:

Hi Barbara,

We're staying at the Radisson, too. We got a rate of $179 back in February. That's for a King bed with sleeper sofa. We were trying to stay at the new Residence Inn but because it's a holiday weekend, they were only taking ressies for a 3-night minimum. No good for us. Guess we'll see you there.

Cruise question!!!!

I'm starting to gather my thoughts about gifts for the counselors. Do you think Wal-Mart gift certificates are OK? I know they can't personally keep them, but is there a Wal-Mart near the port that they can go to? Any other suggestions if this one isn't right? Thanks.

Thx for asking. Seems like maintenance chemo has thrown her more for a loop than her treatment chemo. She's quite tired all the time. She'll take a 20 minute walk around the neighborhood and come home and sleep for 3 hours. But, even in spite of that, she's found time to pick up new hobbies--like crochet (KT got a homemade OSU pillow and afghan for Christmas) and stay active in her church....she just won a prize in some show they had (ohioMickey...do you remember what category she won in???)

Well, I got out of cooking dinner last night...but not exactly in the way that I would have wished. I had a little accident. NO...not while cooking!

Stupid story, actually. I was sitting on a footstool, asking my guys what they wanted for dinner, when the stool decided to collapse. (must truly be diet time). Anyway, some of you know that I have a bad back to begin with....and I didn't do it any favors last night. I was pretty miserable. It seems to be a whole lot better this morning, just a little touchy, so I guess I didn't do any more permanent damage. :sad2: But I'm going to have to be darn careful for a while. All I could think of was this cruise.......I really thought I had blown it big time!

:confused3 :confused3 They can't keep them??? I know if they get cash tips, they have to pool that together and split it amongst all of the counsellors, but I had heard gift cards were theirs to keep.....and everytime we've handed one over to a counsellor, they've immediately put it in their pocket!!

We started by getting international phone cards at Sam's Club but then heard most CM's have cell phones and don't need them. So we switched to $10 Wal*mart cards. Usually the kids give out 2 or 3 to their favorite counsellors. They go up that person and say "I just wanted to tell you that you made my cruise MAGICAL.....so I want you to have this to thank you." The CM's almost always are flabbergasted!! They have been near tears. They hug the kids and are just smiles for a long time. No way *I* could do their job!!!

There is a Wal*mart near the port--and the "Fun Bus" will take them there on Port Canaveral days.

Hope this helps!

Or, they dress every day in t-shirt and shorts (or jeans). I think this has been Lisa's "uniform" for years now. The only time we can get her in a dress is Church and special occassions (Cotillion). So, when you see her all dressed up on formal night - it won't be the look we see around our house very often. (However, other than the other gymnasts and dancers in the group, we probably see the leotard look more often than most parents)

Oh man, I remember when Maggie had that on for two weeks (one week post spay, the next week for complications after spay)....

Her favorite thing was to run up behind you and go between your legs. Well, with the sattelite dish on her head that meant you got chopped in the back of the knees everytime she came near. Yeouch!

Elizabeth goes through phases... (each lasting about 24 hours)... either its jeans and a t-shirt, or she's dressed to the nines... I honestly think she'd dress up for school every day if getting there didn't involve riding a bike, (and the shoe policy... she can't wear most of the shoes she owns...). She was all excited last night to find out that the banquet honoring the graduating seniors in our church youth group is BEFORE the cruise... one more chance to wear one of her new dresses!

We usually take 10 $10 cards. 4 *usually* go to our 4 tipped position people (server, assistant server, stateroom host, head server) although we've been known not to give the head server one if he doesn't come around except for tip night. :)
That leaves 6 or 7 to give to counsellors if need be....although I think the MOST the kids have ever given out was 5 combined between the two of them. Last cruise, Nick hardly spent any time in the club so he didn't give out any.

We figure if they don't get handed out, at least we can use them when we get back. :) Wal*mart had some cute Pooh character ones in January....don't know if they are still there.
