I for one am honored that you shared the story of Granddaddy with us, and am thankful that you decided to do the TR. It's gotten me through some tough times these past few months for sure.











Since we have yet to stay on site...I'll take your word for it. One of these days I do hope to stay on site just to say that I have and see what the fuss is all about.



I have to agree...that is definitely more entertaining...however, I can watch that happen anywhere here where I live. I guess, even watching things that you can see back home have a different feel to them when your somewhere like Disney though.




If it wasn't for you and the hard work you and smidgy put into these TR's, all our comments wouldn't mean much at all.





I chose that specific smiley because that's what I see in my head when you talk about writing a chapter. Not that i think about you or what you are doing all the time...I mean I'm not a stalker or anything...I...Oh...I'm just gonna...carry on...



This reminds me of the movie, The Truman Show, where at the end, everyone sort of stares at the TV for a moment, not knowing what to make of the end of this show they have been following for years and years and then they just sort of snap out of it and start reaching for the TV Guide to find out what else is on.

Although, the real question is...Is there life after a nebo report?





That's a good thing. I'd hate for you to have a cast of picketers outside your door later. Cause you know we won't be going willingly.



For-E-VER...http://youtu.be/H-Q7b-vHY3Q (This is one of the few times I've posted a link here so I really do hope that works!)

Ok...its out of my system...Anywho...I am so excited to hear about your trip with Jackson. I know you and Smidgy have been waiting for this trip for a long time, and I can only imagine the fun and excitement that will be had as you experience Disney for the first time through his eyes.



Maudling? Not even close. I agree with you 100%. You never really know what can happen from day to day. The feeling of knowing you could have talked to them the day before or hugged them or told them you loved them prior to, Those coulda, shoulda, woulda's are not pleasant. So please make sure to tell them. You can never tell your loved ones you love them too many times.





Oh my...That kid is going to be a Heartbreaker when he gets older. He's precious!



That is the sweetest picture. Thank you so much for sharing that with us.




I keep you and Smidgy and your family in my prayers always.
Ok, I know I'm tired Lady H, but I'm not sure what you did or how, but now I"m all misty,,

Yes! It's going to be a Great year!

for some reason, I couldn't copy the picture. anyway ... this was THE picture I was talking about. my sweet loving daddy. who I rarely heard say anything bad about anyone. who didn't swear or use racial slurs. always gave me the best advice. was patient, kind, loving, an honest Christian man.

and Jackson, so handsome and smart, kind,well behaved. and I can't wait to show my favorite place to!!!

since my daddy totally trusted Jesus Christ's complete work on the cross as payment for his sins, I know my daddy is in heaven right now. and I know I will see him when my time comes.

but for NOW!!! I cant' wait for this may trip with my hubby, me sweetheart, and I cant' wait until august to see the look in Jacksons eyes!!! and see those dimples when he smiles!

and I look forward to a trip in the future with our first little princess, kaylee, and the young prince mason, who will turn 1 in march!! we are truly blessed.

you guys know more about us than a lot of our every day friends/acquaintences.. you are our very dear friends.. kiss hug... love you all..
I won't lie...I got a little teary eyed there for a moment. It's obvious in the words you write and the way you express yourself regarding your father that you and Nebo held him in the highest regard. From what you have told us, he seems like an amazing man, and I have to say that he raised one heck of a woman! Thank you so much for sharing a little of him with us.

I think I look forward, not just to another TR from you and Nebo, but to hopefully share in the experience you both will have when you take Jackson to all your favorite places and get to see his reaction to all the stuff that you love about The Happiest Place On Earth.

I'm with Mr. T...I don't think its possible to over talk about Granddaddy. Just glad you were comfortable enough to share him a little with us.

Now, here's the thing:

Ok, you said you don't want to do a report yourself, but I truly think Lady H is up for the task.
And,,,, I really, REALLY want to read a trip report from DisenyWorld Veterans now doing a report from DisneyLand!
Both of us are dying to go there to compare, and I cannot believe there aren't reports doing exactly what I just mentioned!

So if you are going in August, it would work out great if you can tell us anything about it, we hope to go in August or September of '13.

What do you say Lady H? Sound good?
You could fulfill my feeble fantasy about learning more about Disneyland, and you just know that Ponzi and I will not leave you,,, um,,, neglected?
Who me?

If by fulfilling your feeble fantasy is to have me write a TR with with random days or times missing then sure, by all means, I'd be happy to...Let me explain:

Our very first trip to WDW, We went with DSIL during a Fraternal Order of Eagles International Convention. Now I do remember going to this convention for a while. What happened after we left the convention gets a little fuzzy. According to both Mr. T and DSIL we took a taxi cab...Which I remember none of, and we also took a shuttle, which I remember none of. See a pattern here? For the majority of this trip, I don't think I got to the point of being completely and utterly plastered to the point of not remembering things. I remember the oddest things from that trip, but for the life of me, I cannot remember a cab or shuttle. To this day, Mr. T and DSIL make fun of me for not remembering a thing that night. I still say they are making it all up just to watch me squirm.

If I do a TR for DL, which I am contemplating, I would have to take serious notes just to make sure that I remember what I did, and when, Otherwise I would have to rely on Mr. T to fill in the gaps. Which I may still have to do anyway.

Seriously though. I didn't mean to make you misty, I only type the truth. The magic of Disney may have brought us all together. But its been your magic that has kept us here.

Dang, the Dis ate my post yet again. Im still back on page 144 when you finished your ride home. I absolutely hate bumper riders. It's very late, so I will have to catch up later. Glad you made it home safely (obviously), but a horrendes/horrendous/ bad trip home.

Oh my, Pkondz, you sir really outdid yourself!!

"Nebo tames the Beast" is GREAT!!

Sandy Mouse, I like Deeds. It's a neat shortened abbreviation. It's got flair and originality! I always get the "What's your real name" bit.

Nebo, you are so close with your Big Red guess. My sister's name is Ginger. My parents had Ginger as a pet in 1973 and a few years later found they liked the name so much, they used it for their 2nd daughter's name. I was named for my mom's nickname.

Yep, we might actually run into the zillion Brazilians if we go into the parks the first two days or so. I really need an AP discount to cover the added dates so we'll see if they stick. If there are no discounts, which usually there are and they appear around May, we may do a split stay and do value or moderate for a less indigestive price. The downside to the values would be the possibility of remnant tour groups.

And now, I agree with Marita, my eyes are drooping. Night-night!

I figured that was the pic you mentioned. Great shot and a wonderful memory. Your Dad (I think I said this before) sure seems like he was a wonderful man.

Sorry for your loss. I don't know a) How I'd be able to not tell someone their DD passed, I'd be a nervous wreck too! or b) How I'd feel if I was on vacay and wasn't told until I got home.

Let his parents take him on the lesser rides... the ones nobody remembers.

Well, I would write a TR if I was going to WDW. But I don't think this forum is for Hawaii trips. Even if we do squeeze in a quick visit over to Aulani, I don't think it would qualify. I can see it now. 50 chapters about Hawaii with a sentence at the end like, "And then we visited Aulani, it was very nice." Okay! That makes it an official Disney TR!

True story alert.

My beetle was great, but it did have one not so great thing about it. Whenever I drove it in the summer for more than 5 minutes, the starter would get hot (from the engine, it wasn't doing anything else once the car was 'on'). When metal is heated it expands. Something in that starter would expand enough that it wouldn't work until it cooled down.

So this is a typical day in the summer:

Drive to mall or whatever.
Go inside and start worrying.
Come outside and pray.
Attempt to start car.
Curse.
Grab tools from back seat. Open trunk (it's a bug. that's where the engine is.)
Squeeze hand behind engine and remove starter motor.
Install spare second-hand starter motor that I always keep in the car. (I got pretty good at it. Could do it in about 10-15 minutes)
Start engine.
Drive to next location.
Repeat from the top.

How many car manufacturers out there today would expect you to change out a starter motor any time you wanted to go anywhere?

Au contraire. I thought you had just the right amount of discussion. You described the effect Smidgy's Dad's passing had on you both quite admirably while not making it seem uncomfortable for the rest of us. You shared some of your memories and gave us a glimpse of a wonderful man whom I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to meet. Not a simple task. Well done.

We saw 3 different bands that trip I'm pretty sure, at Epcot, and from start to finish, I believe the entire report was all of 16 pages!
I had no idea what I was doing back then, my chapters were like Cliff Notes from a Reader's Digest Version from Twitter!
If you read them real fast you could actually go back in time!
Then there was the fact I had maybe 3 readers, with me and Smidgy making up two of them!

"Smidgy and the Grump" ended very abruptly also, our 12 year old computer on dial up had had it by then,,, and it was always crashing in the middle of a chapter, it was all I could do to sum things up there and finish it.
Well, I'm going to look forward to it, gotta have something to get me through the rest of this winter

The Princess Half marathon -- yes, many many ladies do dress as princesses and/or wear tutus. I'm not going there, I'm just in my regular running gear. And it's a half marathon, so you only have to run 13.1 miles, I leave 26.2 to the professionals! 5% of the 17,000 participants are men -- so you can find some princes out there. They have a ton of characters and entertainment along the route (starts at Epcot pkg lot, through MK and then a little bit of Epcot). This year they had one station with men in tuxes with shoes, proposing. I didn't stop since I already found my prince, and after 18 years I have him broken in (err, we've "grown together") just the way I like him.

I will say, I have never seen so many grown women in tiaras in my life. Lots of ladies wear them all weekend. I almost feel left out without one. Almost.

It's not that the resorts are so much better, it's that even when you leave, you're still in Disney.

I have to agree...that is definitely more entertaining...however, I can watch that happen anywhere here where I live. I guess, even watching things that you can see back home have a different feel to them when your somewhere like Disney though.

probably depends on where you live,, maybe big city folks would relish just looking at trees ,,,,


I chose that specific smiley because that's what I see in my head when you talk about writing a chapter. Not that i think about you or what you are doing all the time...I mean I'm not a stalker or anything...I...Oh...I'm just gonna...carry on...

Like that smiley

We watched that movie,, and you're right,,, that was a strange one.






For-E-VER...http://youtu.be/H-Q7b-vHY3Q (This is one of the few times I've posted a link here so I really do hope that works!)

Oh, it worked allright,,, what in the heck is that?

Ok...its out of my system...Anywho...I am so excited to hear about your trip with Jackson. I know you and Smidgy have been waiting for this trip for a long time, and I can only imagine the fun and excitement that will be had as you experience Disney for the first time through his eyes.

Yeah, we can't wait. He has spent a little time at MK one day a few years ago,,,,now he get's to do it the right way.











That is the sweetest picture. Thank you so much for sharing that with us.




I keep you and Smidgy and your family in my prayers always.
Thank you Lady H.

People say that it's always best to talk about things and not keep them inside. I suspect that this TR may have been a little bit cathartic for you both, too. Hope so, anyway.

I have not doubt about that.



Am I the first to call you that? If I am, stick a © on it.

Sorry, "UtahMama" used "neebs" a lot in Guess who's coming to free Dinner.

Did you ever get a good explanation for the valve stem issue?

Forgot about that. Yeah, I talked to him and he wanted to know what kind it was. ???? So he came out and looked at the tires, said sorry, this is a first time thing, and he'll make a note of it.





I'm really surprised! I guess you just assume that a deluxe would be so much better then a mod. But I do agree with you that the exterior corridors, while sounding 'cheaper' is actually better, given the climate. I love the idea of stepping out of my room and I'm immediately outside. Maybe that makes it feel more like a home than the apartment style deluxes?

"You MAY be RIGHT!",,, sorry, Billy popped in my head,,, but you could be,,,I never liked apartment type halls either.



That's just weird... Or
The bulk of Disney guests will generally stay at Values or Mods resulting in those resorts being filled. The deluxes, without the DVC and few people who can afford them, sit empty. It's a theory.
It was kind of explained to me once,, but I don't think that was it, had more to do with where the source of the DVC money originates from,,,cuz they then have to pay DIsney.




Oh, look! Thumper and Backstage Gal and Buzz and... okay, everybody are gathering outside my door armed with torches and pickforks. I wonder if we're all going for a picnic?

and yout get to be the marshmallows!

who who, who who?
I woke up in a Disney doorway
A CM knew my name
He said, "You can go and ride Big Thunder
If you can get a fastpass today"

sorry, ya lost me in this one,,, Ponzi Hears a WHO?




So I decided to go this way instead.

"I love you man."
"No, man. I love you, man."
"No, you don't understand. I love you man."
"No, wait. I do, I really, love you man. Really."
"Yeah, me too. Except, you know what?
"What, man?"
"I love you man."

Keep repeating until one or both fall down.

Sounds like another Dr. Seuss short story,, the two guys who refuse to step aside and let the other one pass,,,,,,











Very nice pics. And yes, there certainly is a resemblance to Smidgy there, as was already mentioned.



Action Jackson takes on the World and rescues two old coots.



Consider it done.
Thanks a lot Ponzi,, you have made this endeavor a lot more fun and have added incredible pics and laughs.

You have no idea of the depths of my disappointment.
The Who? Who are you? Roger Daltrey? Pete Townshend? Keith Moon?

Well, I am finally caught up!

It sure is weird when you post about something that happened 5 pages ago, and the rest of the gang is in the midst of paying homage to the great author

Anyway, back in present time now. I have to say, there were some great comments, I got verklemmpt myself (and I didn't have to google it). So many talented people here. Love you all.

Now, Nebo, you know you won't be able to not write anything about your April trip, right? You'll miss your Dis family and you'll want to tell us something and it would kill you not to. So I am looking forward to the further adventures of Nebo and Smidgy in the near future.

I get it, and I’m surprised Nebo didn’t. It’s from Sandlot, a great family movie set in the late 50s or early 60s about a group of kids who play baseball all summer on a sandlot. My kids and grandkids love it.

Way back in the middle ages when I was a brand new bride, we lived in San Diego for 3 months and went to Disneyland once. Two years later we lived in Florida and starting going to WDW twice a year. (My ex was as big a Disney fan as I am.)
I remember liking Disneyland greatly, and it had more than WDW, but the Florida park was new back then and very small (more area but fewer attractions). My ex got out of the military and we moved away before EPCOT was finished. My memories of DL kind of blend into those of WDW. I do remember that there was a restaurant down underground at the end of POTC, which was cool. And it had a really cool canoeing attraction.

I don’t know what y’all are talking about with the weird stuff on VW Beetles. We had a ‘69 that we bought in ‘79 as a second car for my ex to drive to work. It had a heater and nothing weird and was totally dependable. It was canary yellow with a new interior and new paint job and mag wheels - very cute. After moving to Montana, we had to put chains on it a couple of times and they made a horrible racket hitting the inside of the wheel well because of the mag wheels.
