It's amazing how you knew what the chapter was going to tell you to do even before you wrote it!

Interesting. So it's the same plant just younger or older. Is the taste that much different between the two?

I probably wouldn't have noticed. I usually don't even look at the bill and just pay it. I'd guess 95% of the time it's right and the other 5% is usually in my favor and occasionally against. Obviously if it's really off (What? My hot dog, fries and coke is $82.75???? or Lobster, filet mignon, escargot, french onion soup and bottle of wine comes to $3.75) I'll catch it and let the waiter know.

Well, that’s your fault. You told him you needed stamps for postcards when you should have said postcard stamps. I can translate clerk speak, this is what he heard.

“Blah, blah, blah, stamps, blah, blah.”
Instead of
“Blah, blah, blah, postcard stamps, blah, blah.”

See? Totally your fault.

And the hamster is limping right?

So next time, both of you order ribs with extra sauce.

Do not wash your hands. When you go back to the park (with BBQ sauce dripping from your hands), make sure you shake the CM’s hand who’s checking for stamps and give ‘em a hearty clap on the back for doing such a good job! They’ll appreciate it! They really will! Lets ‘em know they’re appreciated.

I don't feel like working on my chapter, I'd rather pick on you two guys:

What, ;you never got that kind of strange feeling before you did something? I think it's called Deja Soon.

I don't know why, but my head hurts now.

Oh poor boy, I really feel for you.

Did he use the words 'pimped out'?

Hey, if Bunny Boy said so, then that's what he said!
I don't believe he said pimped out, Mike.


Reminds me of one of my 5th grade teachers. Sister Beatrice. Yes she was a nun and the old cliche about the mean nun teacher who'd smack kids with a yard stick was invented by her.

How I feared and hated that loathsome... ummm... SOB (take out the S and the O).

Ha, oh yes, leaving in the S and the O make it much more politically correct.

It lets the other theme parks know who you belong to.

So, they are going steady with Disneyland?



Interesting. So it's the same plant just younger or older. Is the taste that much different between the two?

Why do I think that in many other similar instances concerning the above line, the disgusting response that would follow would be, "Depends." Never mind.

So now there's a hostess who's called... what? Thumper_Man's Hostess?


I've met her, her sign on her uniform says "The Witless Waitress".
oh, he can hear me, can't he?



I know Nebo flinched at that... but if it's enough for 4 people, that's not bad.

I'm still flinching over that,, and I thoguht there was only two of them. No, I never buy into the little comments on menus next to the items that say, "serves 4, or serves 6", usually it's never enough for all of you. Especiall,,, PIZZA, "Serves 4" yeah,,, right,, I can eat the thing by myself and you want me to split it with 3 other people?

Don't mind him, though. He fell on his head, ya know.

I heard that, is Fabio going to be allright?




Two things... 1. It's a wonder that there weren't a bunch of guys in there all staring at the screens and 2. I really hope there was no one else in there... "Uh, buddy? Would you mind putting the camera away until I finish my business, here?"

I kept waiting for him to take a picture of the little sign near the top that said, "You look up here, you're peeing on your shoes again."

Would this be a bad time to tell you that I have a flatscreen TV installed above my soaker tub?

Nope, sounds like an excellent idea.



Sure. I’ll kick in the price of postage to Canada. That’ll get you started.

I've always wondered why a postcard is cheaper then a regular letter,, does a regular letter weigh so darn much compared to a postcard that it's that much harder to deliver?



Do not wash your hands. When you go back to the park (with BBQ sauce dripping from your hands), make sure you shake the CM’s hand who’s checking for stamps and give ‘em a hearty clap on the back for doing such a good job! They’ll appreciate it! They really will! Lets ‘em know they’re appreciated.

Ok, answer this quickly, who would you rather shake hands with,, Thumperman after he's dripping with gooey BBQ sauce, or that jock itch guy I encountered at Epcot that day?

Hands stamped and slapped. Boy, you sure this was Disney land and not Marquis De Sade Land?

I like it, can't wait to ride Pirates of the Inquisition!



That’s better. That description is dead on.

And your joke was DOA.

Great chapter T-Man! Thanks! :
Ok Mike, I did it for you. Your Welcome. ha ha

Yes we eat Turkey... I don't know anyone who eats goose... Maybe we should, there's a ton of them around right now.

Except I was at work... so I ran to Safeway on my break and bought a turkey salad sandwich... does that count?

Any turkey will count in a pinch.

Ours was a nice 10 pounder, stuffed to overflowing with cornbread/sausage stuffing. A mountain of mashed and a gallon of gravy. Roasted beets and steamed yellow beans to round out the dinner. Finished it off with one of my famous Gluten Free Key Lime Pies (gotta work a little Florida in there somewhere!)

Mmmm, I can almost taste it still. Oh wait, I am tasting it; that's what I'm eating for lunch right now...

P.S. Nebo - thanks for not doing another chapter. I'm now only 5 pages behind over on your TR...

You're welcome Marty, my perfect Thanksgiving dinner:
slices of white meat off the breast, stuffing, rolls and butter, a mountain of mashed potatos, a gallon of gravy, and that's it, I'm good. Maybe just a tad of sweet potato casserole, but yes, you don't see a vegetable in there, not fond of the typical ones served with the big turkey dinner. (beets, green beans, yellow beans, lima beans, orange beans, purple beans, Orson Beans or Mr. Bean.

you forgot to mention that the gravy has to be homemade. I simmer the giblets. then chop them up real fine and use them AND the water it was simmered in in the gravy.. (and some of the water from boiling the mashed potatos.)

unfortunately for the last 4 years or so, I work on thanksgiving.. we have a buffet at the restaurant. nebo is home alone. (the boys are at their wive's families house. never havesons, only daughters. ponzi you are lucky.. if you have a son,your family is always 2nd )

actually, I'm sure nebo could go with the boys to their gatherings, but he would rather not. I buy a turkey when they are on sale and we ahve our own "turkey day" (sometimes we get together with the kids on that sunday or something.. not this year!! flying south baby!!!)

Ok. Before work gets crazy busy today, lets see if I can do a few shout outs.

Hey you guys!

Ok, shout outs done.

By the time I'm 100 I'll be a giant hairy toed Hobbit.

The wake up bell for me was the first time I burned the heck out of my scalp while at Canada's Wonderland a few years back. I've always had thick thick hair and had never considered that I could burn up there. I always try to wear a hat now, but I look stupid in most ball caps and I often rely on the kids to remind me to put one on. I now own 3 Disney caps caused by forgetting to bring one along; for some reason I do like Disney caps over all others.
It's been going for a while now. At least since my early 30's that I can remember. It's more noticeable now though. I tell Lady H at least I won't have to see my hair go gray. It will all be gone by then.

Lady H really doesn't like when I shave either. Especially after the winter beard that I sometimes let grow. Being part of our winter will be in WDW this year, I doubt the winter beard stick around this year.

My thoughts.

I think baseball needs to get rid of the DH and shorten the season. Playing the World Series in late fall just seems odd considering a majority of the season is played during the summer.

And all these new rules the NFL is coming up with for player safety is absurd. It's really changed the game. Like kicking off from the 35 yard line now instead of the 30. You no longer get to see any possible run backs now. Some of those were definite game changers.

Oh wait. You wanted my thoughts about the crowds at DL being worse on the weekends. No I haven't talked much about this yet. Just the little bit from the 2 chapters.

I'll tell you what I think more about this later, but here's a quick synopsis. Being this was our first time to DL/DCA, and we only went to the theme parks 3-days, I don't have much to go by. Given Carsland is new, the crowds were definitely there. Just like any other new ride or expansion, crowds will be heavy for a good year or so before they start to thin out. Sunday morning, crowds were pretty light. At DL anyways. As you can tell by the way we were just getting onto the attractions with almost no wait time at all. Crowds were definitely over at DCA this day. Again, I attribute this to Carsland.

This is about the best I can tell you until we get to our day DCA day Tuesday.
