Rhode Island Folks

I am interested to know how many Rhode Island folks are DVC members. I pay attention to the location tags and find I'm expecially glad to see others from my area who like being welcomed home.

So, here's my entry. Woonsocket, RI!!
(WDW at heart)

While my tag says "Cary, NC", I am originally from RI. Greenville, Exeter, Rumford, Providence.

So, Woonsocket, is that where they park side by each?? :D

Hi neighbor, I'm from North Smithfield.
How long have you been a member? We joined in September of 2000 and just did an add-on this month!

We're from Franklin, MA - just across the border from Woonsocket and I grew up in Cranston. I will always be a Rhode Islander at heart. RI test: what is a cabinet and a grinder?

Hah hah, yes, it is in fact where all the Canucks (of French-Canadian descent, myself included) live that say 'side by each', 'do my stores', 'throw the baby down the stairs, his clothes..'. It's like a being in Montreal.

Items of note here are;
  • One the best high school hockey teams in the U.S., Mount Saint Charles. (our state champs for the last 25 years!).
  • Ye' Olde English Fish & Chips (wow are they good)
  • Chans Restaurant (good restaurant, great Jazz spot)

I lived in Exeter while in college as well.

We've been 150 pt. BCV members for about 3 weeks after returning from WDW in April. I can't wait to go back, Jan. 11-16, 2003!!!!

Regards,
John

test answers;

A grinder is Rhode Islandese for a hoagie or sub, as they're called in the big states.

A cabinet is a frappe or a milkshake.

Another RI test;
1. What's the name of the 100+ year old cart along side the Providence city hall which serves the best 2am burger.

2. What's a gagger?

Hi Mickey Maniac:
We live off River Road, a little south of the Town Hall. I never realized there were so many other DVC'rs around. We took our first trip to OKW in May, and are taking my parents to BCV in January. We definitely like to escape these winters!

Aloha,
To our Native Rhode Islanders . Both my husband and I are from Cranston. My husband is in the Air Force and we still call Rhode Island home even though we have lived all over the world. Our families still reside in Rhode Island and will be joining us in October for the "family reunion".

Until we meet again,

Hey, there, bearpele! My DH and I are also originally from Cranston, and even though we were in High School in the '80s, neither one of us had 'big hair'.

We love going in October. The weather is fantastic. Have a great time!

We are going for Thanksgiving. November 21-27. Got my adr's for Tony's Town Square, and the tickets for MVMCP the same night. CP dinner ressies at Le Celier, and then David Robinison will be doing the reading. Then Boma another night. There are 14 of us, and we'll be staying at AKV, except for Sis who will be at BCV. Can't wait....
