No, nothing major, like somebody in traction or anything. We were just at a slower pace for the week. Okay, a much slower pace for the week.

It was a really good choice for them....they like music (big bands) and comedy, and it was sit-down -- that's a major plus!

It is some tasty fare. Well of course it is, it's fried!

I'm wondering why it's some and not all? I'd think it was an all-or-none thing.

Yep, I believe so.

He's so personable as he makes the rounds. And if you do that, he'll be calling your name all night. Wait, that didn't come out right. I mean during the show. Maybe I should just move on to the next comment.

We love that resort. I forget, have you stayed there before?

I was hoping you'd approve. He went beyond trying it on, he bought it!

Yeah, it turns out that they had more merchandise in the back.

I need to find a better time, when it's not so crowded. I think it can be worse than the parks.

It's good to have a list, there're so many things to try. I hope you get to see him someday.

Too bad Cooks (or, Cookies, as DF likes to call it) was annoyingly slow that night!! Your food does look good though!

Someday, someday, someday, we will go see YeeHaw Bob. His set looks hilarious!!

I am very impressed in your ability to assemble such a fine group to be members of your Rules Committee. Most folks would just make decisions like this all by themselves. But you've gone out of your way to bring together this wonderful group to assist you in making the major decisions regarding your TR.

I'm really hoping to see Yehaa Bob next April. Each time I've read reports about his show everyone has loved it!

Glenn, I have to say, you have the youngest-looking "octegenarian" parents I've seen. Oh well, they say age is just a number, anyway.

Oh. it's. going. to. be. a looooong. week.. Or, you can just see it as a time to have a very stop and smell the popcorn kind of week.

Mmm, the fish and chips looks really good. Yee-Haw Bob looks like so much fun - I hope we can get over there with the kids one evening this Summer.

Hello! Well, I figured I should finally dig into your sandy trip report...I know I left off somewhere right after the city part...but with your handy chapter links, catching up on ninety seven pages should be easy-peasy! Ok, so I'm not quite done with the Vero section yet, but here are my thoughts thus far:

I love that you took Marlene to see the Boss! I went to a number of concerts with my dad when I was in highschool and we always had a blast!


Good info on the drive down. I wouldn't mind driving at some point, especially for a summer trip, and with plane fare being what it is these days, it might even make financial sense. Who knows? Good to hear that its doable, though. I know I'm in CT, which is a bit futher north than you, but not too far.

Nice Mid-Atlantic Dismeet! Personally, I'm a huge fan of the Red Velvet Cheesecake at the CF. Its one of the greatest desserts I've ever had. I swear.


Well, I'd say your view in Vero was pretty sweet. Or suite. Whatever. Like the decor, seems very similar to Old Key West. And those cottages look pretty amazing, too. I will say that I don't think anyone designs a bathroom quite like Disney does.

Ok...I want to go to the beach. In Florida. Right now. Probably not happening. Oh well.

And, ah...yes...Glennbo pictures. Amazing.

Am I the only one who's a bit shocked that Disney chargers for beach chairs at Vero???

I'm really liking the resort though. Kind of a nice mix of OKW and the Beach Club, two of my favorites.

Lets remember the sleeves on james shirt for amoment shall we.

We saw some bride and groom hats for the anniversary-couple, but we just looked, no purchase.


can see marlenes shirt in the background, which comes in later in pictures...and james neck and shoulder behind judy. and judy of course, but look at judys hair here.



the missing judy one that no one got...everyone shifted over slightly to the left for the picture but did not gte out of the picture fully including the shirt and arm of marlene, the arm of james, and whats that right in the middle of the picture but none other than the wavy curly hair of the lovely judy....so looks like there indeed 5 judys in this update...
i will now await your correction of the correct tally and my points.
ill take the round as well as an eagle eye point please.

Yeah we are at WDW. The balcony is wonderful.

Did you see a lot of animals there?

Too bad they were so delayed.

Nice way to start the trip at DTD then Bob. He does put on a good show.

We always seem to get a weird situation/delay like that about once per trip. I think it's just us though!

Oh no, can you imagine the flak I'd take if I made these decisions all alone?!

I've got top men working on it I tell you. Top men.
