Wow! 7 ferrets! Was that by decision, or were some of them particularly friendly? Sounds like your place is always jumping!

yes by choice...he ferrets are all mine, I claim them......if by my choice we would not have as many pets.....but that is the DW's thing......one big happy family :banana: I did forget to add our rabbit Pepper as well :scared1:
Actually all are fixed...big problems if you get ferrets not spayed/neutered....will kill a ferret(from experience)when females go into heat if that aren't spayed....all of our ferrets are super friendly...none are biters, which can be a problem....

What's the best sport to cover?

Even though I really don't have a favorite NFL team, nothing beats a Super Bowl or even an NFL game. Only bad thing about covering the NFL is you don't get to sit home in front of the TV with the clicker bouncing back and forth between games on Sunday Ticket package.

Most relaxing sport to cover is definitely pro golf. Beautiful scenery, most of the golfers are really nice guys and the stories kind of write themselves at times.

I'm an old-school kinda guy, so I still appreciate a good baseball game and covering them can be equally fun.

Another sport I really like to cover is college softball. It doesn't get a lot of national attention, but it's a fun game to watch and it's usually really quick.

Honestly, there aren't many sports I don't enjoy covering. :rotfl:

I have the same problem in reverse. My wife likes Disney but I think when the kids are older I'm going to have a hard time getting her to go with only the 2 of us. :confused3

As much as I love trips with my kids (well my youngest just turned 3 months today and is not taking his first trip until December), I loved the trips that DH and I took before we had them too. He better still go with me after they are grown. Hopefully, she keeps going without too much of a fight on your part.

The first I ever went was in 2005. My wife went a couple times as a kid with her mom and her moms boyfriend. I guess they spent the trips fighting with each other. She doesn't see the castle and get excited. She sees it and thinks about fighting and leaving before they could ride a ride. I am working on getting her past all of that but I think its going to be hard. I just hope my kids love it forever. That will make it easer.:thumbsup2

That is so sad. DH and I agree that the castle is much more impressive at WDW than DLR (although they both make me giddy). Both my husband and I grew up going to Disneyland (with nothing but happy memories). I still love going to this day, so hopefully your kids will take after me. My husband usually gripes, but he enjoys himself.

:eek: :scared1: :sick:

We always do shots of buca when we tailgate at football games. There are 2 guys who actually like the stuff, and the rest of us just drink it because they keep showing up with bottles and shot glasses. Who turns down free liquor? :confused3 :lmao::rotfl2: Actually we drink the clear stuff, but it is nasty enough that I have never wanted to try anything that even shares the name. Does black Sambuca taste like licorice too?

Yes, it tastes like licorice, but it's a lot smoother than the clear stuff. I have friends that drink the clear stuff like it's going out of style. It's not nearly as good (to me, anyway) as the black. I've been looking for a brand called Opal Nera, but it's not sold anywhere local to me. It's a higher-end version that gets its color from elderberries. They also make a clear version (Opal Blanca I believe).

Yes, I'm right between Stockton & Modesto, in a little town called Escalon about 10 miles east of Highway 99. We're right on Highway 120 that goes east directly up to Yosemite National Park, and west to turn into I-580 directly into San Fransisco. It's nice to be 3 hours or less from SF, Yosemite, Lake Tahoe, Reno (okay, that's 3-1/2), Santa Cruz and Monterey - but not having to live IN any of them... Beaches in the summer to the west, skiing in the winter mountains to the east!

Go there? So often that I used to have one of the regulars boxes behind the counter from about 1989-1993 (my Manteca High years). I may have actually worked for you for a short time before you sold the store! I remember grabbing KFC across the street on the nights the comics came in - Diamond Distributing in Berkeley, wasn't it?

Agree 100%

The black is much smoother, it's a lot thicker, and is night and day with the clear.

And I also drink Opal Nera. I haven't seen it in a while either.

Hobbies: Miniature wargaming, Scouts, model railroading

I'm probably going to be adding model rocketry to the hobbies list. One of DWs sisters is at JPL, and has been working on the Mars rover, so my normally space-happy self has gone into geek overdrive.

Just to give you my "resume". Been to WDW 5 times, never to DL. Wish Disney's America actually got off the ground so when my wife says she wants to go to visit family in Virginia I could still do a Disney park. Next tattoo is going to be Jedi Mickey with room for me to him fighting Darth Goofy and Emperor Stitch.

Work is 5 hours away. Better go get my zzzz's on.

Favorite Drink: Sugar Free Red Bull, Earl Grey ... Hot, Guinness, Dirty Goose Martini, Sweet Tea (but not at WDW, the water makes it taste funny), and anything served in a cup shaped like Mickey.


Just to give you my "resume". Been to WDW 5 times, never to DL. Wish Disney's America actually got off the ground so when my wife says she wants to go to visit family in Virginia I could still do a Disney park. Next tattoo is going to be Jedi Mickey with room for me to him fighting Darth Goofy and Emperor Stitch.

Work is 5 hours away. Better go get my zzzz's on.

SWEET ANOTHER COLORADIAN!!! Welcome to the fray Josh. Check us out over at disdads.com as well you will find our podcast there as well. email me at prattpak at disdads.com so maybe we could meet some day. Im in Westminster.

Wow, who would have thought that the STICKIES had useful information??:confused3:confused3

I now have some inkling of what I have gotten myself into. And like the DVC, I keep asking, why didn't I do this sooner??

For the formal intro:
Name: Andrew (or Drew but SWMBO doesn't like Drew)
Family Sit Rep: Married to Carolyn (Caropooh on the DIS) for 27 years (that beats everyone I saw in the first 4 or 5 pages), we have Alana DD17 and Kathryn DD12. We met while we both worked at Disneyland in CA and were going out for almost 5 years when we got married. As I met her right after she turned 18 and before she graduates, I have known her over half her life.
Pets: NONE Some peanut buttering so and so stole our black lab Mickey a few years ago and we have not replaced him.
Location: Auburn, WA a half hour or so south of Seattle.
Occupation: Searching for employment, hoping to get hired on at Boeing. Spent 26 years working for REI before being terminated for a stupid act of horseplay.
Favorite foods: BBQ ribs (I make a great chipolte BBQ sauce), Italian, Mexican

Favorite Drink: Iced Tea, Cherry Coke
Hobbies: Not strangling DD17, Cooking, Camping, DCL trips (6 so far), eating (which is why I like to cook)

Hello. Thought I should post here. Very excited to be going back to Disney world for the first time in 14 years. Last time I was there, I was graduating High School. Now, I am married, have a 2 year old daughter and I am excited to share Disney with her!

Name: Clay
Family Sit Rep: Married. DW Ashley. DD2 Hope.
Pets: Just had to put our cat down. Not sure we will have another. Very sad.
Location: Bethlehem, PA
Occupation: Full time Internet Sales Director for Muller Auto Group in New Jersey. Part time wedding photographer.
Favorite foods: Steak, burgers and mexican food
Favorite Drink: Beer or Bourbon
Hobbies: Golf, football and video games

Oh, and our trip will be October 14 - 20 this year. We are going to buy a house this summer and plan on having another kid soon, so it was either now or wait another 3 years. I made the decision that we are going to find the cheapest way to go to Disney so my daugher can get there before she is 6.

I rented DVC points through Dave's Disney Vacation Club to stay at the value studios in Animal Kingdom. I think I can find flights from Newark or Philly to Orlando for $200 each and I plan on buying 6 day tickets (no water parks, no hopper) through Undercover tourist.

In any case, I am excited to see there is a group of Dad's on here and I would love to participate.

Welcome aboard Clay.

I believe there may be another DisDad from Bethlehem, PA area on the boards somewhere - but I could be wrong.

I'm also in the "car business". I started as an Internet Sales Guy and now a Finance Manager.

I also enjoy photography (not on the scale of you) and definitely enjoy the occasional Bourbon or two (or three).

Please come on over to the "Mother Thread (http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2860737&page=148)" and re-introduce yourself there to receive your coveted DisDad number!

I was part of the DIS Dads trip in Dec 10 when I took my DD along with my sister and her kids. Met a couple of DIS Dads. Here are photos:

Nice to see you, Brad!

How did your 13 year old enjoy the cruise? I'm taking ours in June, and he's the wildcard in the mix. (When we were nailing down our itinerary plans he interrupted to say "No offense, but I GUARANTEE that the teen clubs are lame.")

I know that a son might have a different attitude set than a daughter but, hey! 13 is 13, LOL!

I figure the best person to respond would be my daughter... so here she is.

"Hi my name is PattyJo. we were on the new Disney Dream. This was my 2nd cruise (we were on the Wonder when I was 8). The Edge club for tweens is fun because they have lots to do. Like a dance floor, video games, and in one room you can make your own music on a computer. There is a green screen where you can put yourself into cool situations. They did lots of fun activities with us as well. Like the Ghost Adventures, we had a DJ come and do games and stuff, and we got to make special trips to the Vibe (the teen place with cool hot tubs and a deck). They did a magic show with the magician. If you get bored, you can go on the deck and watch free movies, eat pizza, ice cream or whatever you want.The only thing I didn't like was it was kind of hard to find. The counselors were lots of fun! And honestly, there was so many other things I couldn't do because there wasn't enough time. I made friends. Oh yeah, and the Aquaduck was amazing!!! One time they closed it and just let us tweens ride, nobody else."




Let me just say, on our first cruise my oldest was 13 on that cruise. The truth is she didn't do one single thing with the "club" because there was just so many other fun things to do. There are tons of movies, 3D movies, basketball, soccer, swimming, game shows, and on and on. I can tell you that my kids would cruise for every vacation if we could afford it :)

I lived in Orlando in my gradeschool years and went to Disney any time we had friends/family visit from out of town. Towards the later years, I recall thinking "Disney Again?!!". I can't believe I'd have such a terrible thought! I'd love to visit that often now!!
