Walked through a corn field last night and I about hurled. I've got plans to go to Kentucky for the NASCAR races this weekend. I'm at the point right now that I don't even want to spend the gas money to drive down there, but I've just been so stressed this past week, I think a couple of days of just getting away would be good. Then again, I'll see a noticeable decline in crop conditions when I get back home.
Hope it rains for you soon. It's about the same here in the northern part of the state too. I emptied the kiddie pool a couple of times hoping it would sustain at least the part of my yard that I'm fencing in. No such luck. My yard is more sand than soil and it basically just washed out some of the grass in that area.

My biggest concern is with so many "beverly's" in our area and the 4th coming that we are going to end up with a lot of things on fire. My neighborhood sounds like a war zone during 4th of July week and these idiots don't know better.

I am sore today. Got my fence posts all set last night with the help of my dad. Well, more like with his supervision. I didn't want him doing too much in the heat.

Yeah, I'm worried about that too. I live on a county road that isn't traveled often. About a half mile from my house is another road that is traveled even less. Last year about 5 cars were parked there setting off fireworks. I'm definitely going to be monitoring that situation and make sure I've got the Sheriff's Dept phone number in my speed dial.

Our county fair is next week and they've already announced the cancellation of the "official" firework celebration.

We've been doing that a lot here too. My kids only like being outside for about half an hour max when its in the high 80s. So Disney Jr gets lots of run especially when the kids have had enough of each other.


Hope you guys in Indiana and Ohio get some rain soon.

Don't know what to say, other than I'm praying that rain comes soon.

Dumb question... I’ll assume that was a collective: “NO!”

We’ve been out and about for a mini-vacation and just got back in last night. No Disney visit (and still none on the horizon ), but a good time was still had.
Of course we missed you. So where did you go on the mini-vacation?

I watched that yesterday when you posted it to Facebook. Those boys had a bit too much free time on their hands!

It's the same around here - people shooting them off all night long, despite it being illegal. For some reason, it's legal for these people to put up tents in grocery store parking lots and sell a small arsenal to people, but illegal for the people to use said arsenal. Not like that stops them.

We're pretty luck here - the city shoots the fireworks off over Lake Michigan, which currently still has water in it. I usually bring my ipod and play the soundtrack to Wishes or Illuminations to make the fireworks more enjoyable.

Welcome to the club Rich! Living that far west, I assume you're a Disneyland fan. Do you get out to Florida much?

Morning Gents,

Yesterday was the coolest dive ever. It was a night Manta Ray dive and there were about 25 of these suckers swimming around us feeding.

Here is a pic from the early dive when one of them is starting to congregate near the feasting spot.



Last day of diving this morning. Tomorrow is a rest day and Saturday we travel to Aluani.

I'm glad they had that free time though. I've had that song in my head for like 2 days now.


Especially the "water, water, water, water, yeah" part.

I've never understood the concept of selling "out of state" fireworks. Basically they're saying you can legally buy them in Indiana but you have to take them to another state to blow them up... then you've got the neighboring states all selling the same stuff as "out of state" fireworks. Talk about legal loopholes.

Yeah... If Lake Michigan starts to look like a dry lake bed, we're all screwed.

I would love to go diving sometime. Looks like a lot of fun.

I'd say it is a shame that this is the last diving day, but I don't think you'll be suffering much when you move over to Aulani.
