Happy Be-lated 3rd Anniversary. I see on your profile page you signed up on 1-12-01.

I don't recall when I started visiting the DIS, you always seemed so knowledgable that I just assumed you had been here forever.

It has been a pleasure knowing you! Quite honestly, it has been my privilege knowing you!

Happy Anniversary Andy. I know you have always been good at helping me when I have asked. But I always assumed you had been around awhile.

Since you brought up Hazel's big 5-0. we only have another year before ours, Andy -

So let me take this opportunity to invite everyone to join us for our 50th Birthday Cruise in 2005 - also the 50th Anniversary of Disneyland (do we hear West Coast DCL????)

It's going to be a cruise long remembered!


01-25-2004, 08:51 PM
Happy Anniverary Andy!! I too look forward to reading your posts. You always have a kind word and are always helpful to anyone who has a question. We took our first cruise in October, and booked a seven day for this November. We loved it. I am looking forward to reading more helpful ideas here on the Dis boards. I thank you in advance for all I will learn from reading your posts. Have a wonderful day!!

01-25-2004, 10:32 PM
Had to add my 2 cents. I too appreciate your positive outlook. You are a wonderful resource and an awesome person. I am proud to "know" you!


01-26-2004, 11:47 AM

Had to put my two cents here, too. Thanks for all you do. You are truly a gift to the DIS boards.

Look forward to meeting you on 8/21/04 (actually 8/20/04 at the Radisson!!!)


01-26-2004, 12:07 PM
I also want to thank you for all you do. Our first cruise a couple weeks ago was very special and part of that was thanks to you. People would ask me how I knew to do certain things and I would say my buddy Andy from New Jersey told me. I consider you a friend even though we have never met.


01-26-2004, 12:10 PM
To say I am in shock is an understatement - I thought Andy had been here for longer than a year - he is so involved.

Thank you for all you do Andy - you are an asset to this site.
