Kevin and I decided we needed to get out of the house for a little while, especially in anticipaiton of what the rest of the weekend might be like.

We took his folks to DTD to have dinner at the Earl of Sandwich (yes, we are VERY good to them).

While in line the folks directly behind us were NateandJenn - here from Japan. They recognized Kevin right away from his Samantha Brown picture on the internet (not the one where he dresses like her...the one where he is standing next to her). They were super nice and hadn't heard about Bob's passing. This is my biggest fear on Sunday, those who may not know and show up only to find something other than what they expected.

Then, on the way out of the Marketplace we stopped to use the facilities and ran into kab407 - Kathy. She was there with her Mom. We had a nice visit and chat. She will be at the Gaylord Palms on Sunday as well.

I still don't think Kevin's Mom and Dad completely understand how people know us or why they would want to listen to us on the internet - afterall she spends most of her timing trying to get us to shut up :laughing:

So this is a very good example of the wonderful community that you and Bob and the other podcast members, and everyone else who loves the Dis, has created over the years. A great legacy for you all, and now particularly for Bob . . . .

Sure is nice to hear you guys got a chance to get out and about. We will me thinking of you all this weekend. It must be such a weird feeling to have people recognize you from all around the world. I don't emagine when you all started doing the boards and podcast that you emagined it would touch so many people and become as big as it has. What a wonderful oppotunity. Take Care John:)

Too funny!

Your comment about Sunday struck a chord for me. After my Dad passed away (rather suddenly), for months I would run into people who would ask about him, and there was always an awkward pause before I would tell them that he had died.

I will be thinking of you and Kevin, Bob's family and all of the Podcast crew this weekend. I do hope that I run into you guys in happier times in the parks or restaurants (and yes, I would definitely recognize ya in an instant, not so much from Kevin's Samantha Brown pic, but your distinctive voices :)).

Were the ones who listen, and I don't think even we know why we do. On that note, I also spend much of my time trying to get you guys to shut up, never works from here either! :rotfl2: :rotfl2: :rotfl2:
That one was for Bawb! ;)

John, I have a suggestion. There are probably many people that listen to the podcasts but don't check the boards. Could you do a quick message thru the podcast regarding the change of format for Sunday? I know my Itunes pulls the new podcast as soon as it is posted.

My job once I get home is to buy my mom an ipod an show her how to find you! Next thing you know she'll be wanting to go on the cruise!

Please thank Kevin's dad for the pin off his hat.

See you tomorrow.

Pete was going to record something and get it up on Itunes/the Listen Now page but I don't think he could get through it.

He did modify the Podcast main page with a link back to his original post from Monday.

I sent a sperate email to everyone who emailed us about coming to the Live Audience Show to let them know what happened in case they couldn't get to the boards.

I realize some folks still may not know. We'll just have to deal with that the best we can on Sunday.

You should have seen the look on her Mom's face when you were mentioned and the cistern came up in conversation. All she could say was 'I'll explain later'. :rotfl:

That is so cool you ran into 2 DISers. I think you will run into people who dont know for a while. It was that way for me when my parents died. I still get mail for them 10 years later. Good luck this weekend. I will be lighting a candle for Bawb at church tomorrow.:grouphug:

I've tried a few times to record something, but I can't seem to get thru it without breaking down. As soon as I can, I'll put something in the feed....it's just too damn hard to sit in that room without him.

I can't even tell people without welling up with tears, and I only met him a couple of times. My heart goes out to all of you who were family. I hope you all find comfort and a little peace today as you gather to celebrate such a wonderful human.

Oh Pete. :grouphug:

Just a thought - Could a sign be put outside of the meeting room at the Gaylord Palms saying something to the effect of it being a Podcast Memorial for Bob? That way people that haven't had access to the boards and don't know would have some sort of clue going into it. Could save you all from having to answer the same thing over and over and could keep people from having to be surprised with the bad news.

I was going to suggest the same thing. That way no one should be walking into the room realizing it's not going to be the same format.

My thoughts and prayers are with the DIS Unplugged family today (well, they have been all week...but especially today and tomorrow). :hug:

I can't imagine showing up for the meet and not knowing about Bob, that would just be awful. :guilty: Are there really alot of people who listen to the podcasts that never come to the boards? I mean, I know there are, but the two go hand in hand to me, I was thinking if you are enough of a fan to go to the meet and the show was never put up this week, you'd come to the boards to find out why so hopefully no one would go and get completely blindsided.

I'll be thinking of everyone today, :grouphug: same as I've been all week, but even more so today. :sad1:

Pete and John (and Kevin, Will, Corey and Julie and Regina),

The entire podcast family has been extraordinary throughout the past week under difficult circumstances. You've sustained us when your hearts were grief-stricken. I can't imagine anyone faulting you - but it is a high measure of your caring that you worry about it.

My thoughts today are with you. I wish I could have been there in person.

We could but part of me thinks if someone made it that far it might be better for them to hear it from someone rather than read it on a sign. I think the vast majority of people will have heard by that point

I think the problem might lie with people that have actually been vacationing at WDW this past week and haven't had access to their computers/iPods. (Yes -- there are still a few of us neanderthals that want to get away from it all for a week or two a year!) Hopefully this will not happen, and if it does -- well, at least they'll be with lots of people that understand.

Pete, I understand completely and I have thought about you often this past week. PLEASE take care of yourself, you are SOO important to us all.

Again, my thoughts are with all of you today and tomorrow at the meet.

John and Kevin - I'm so glad you were able to get out even if it was just for a bite to eat.
Pete - I've thought often about how tough it is going to be to go back in that room again and even told my husband Monday that I wasn't sure you guys would ever record again. Since you guys are talking about recording again at some point, I do have an idea. What about seeing if Diana or Brian would be willing to sit in Bawb's seat for the first show so we could hear great Bawb stories? For those that were able to make it to FL this weekend, you've all had the chance to share good stories but for those of us who weren't able to make it, we'd still like to hear the wonderful and heartwarming Bawb stories. I, for one, would much rather hear that than anything about Disney.
