The good news is that was was able to bank those points forward to next year, so we'll go big with a 1 BR.
Sorry to hear that Norm, maybe a summer trip might come into play, if not I'll send you food porn pics from Shula's in August

Won't get a summer trip". But, we'll definitely book there next year.

Guess I'll have to send you some more Karmel Corn to hold you over

Sorry to hear that your car blew up Norm. Hope you gave it a good send off to the great and mighty car heaven in the sky, or do you plan to give it a new heart and lungs (engine and tranny) transplant??? My apologies for my weird sense of humor, been around too many vehicles over the years (DH hoards them). At least I collect small things. If it has wheels, a engine, and is old, he collects it, especially if it's a truck. Hence us keeping the 2 vehicles we totaled last month (one for a rebuild (the truck), one as a barely rolling parts vehicle).

That is some amazing Korn. It is better freshly made in front of you, but I'll suffer with the pre-packaged.

No need to apologize. Have to have a sense of humor about these things. Turns out they will be able to do a successful transplant - timing chain and water pump. We have three vehicles for two drivers. A car repair is way cheaper than making car payments.

Thanks. Looking forward to pictures. I'll have to visit vicariously thru others for awhile.

OUCH Norm, both the water pump and the timing chain are one of the more ugly jobs to do. I agree that it's cheaper to repair than replace, especially with the cost of new cars these days. It's cheaper to get a beater and fix it up than to replace it with a new one.

Now that I have the Ohana ADR for 5pm since it's my son's 8th Bday, and I know some people that will be at WDW the same time (maybe a Commando or 2 will be there at the same time) I'm going to plan a 7pm BDay party at Capt Cook's where all the kids attending can all get a Dole Whip to celebrate Hunter's Bday, after I told him this the 1st thing he said was we need to get goodie bags for the kids

I figure Capt. Cook's would be the best central location in case others will be at different parks, this way if someone has a base ticket, they can still come and get to go back to the park they are touring, plus if a child does not like Dole whips they have a good variety of cupcakes or other pastery's, plus they sell assorted adult beverages for the grown ups

So if you will be at WDW on August 4th let me know and I'll put you on the guest list

For WDW news this was a extremely slow week, I haven't really heard anything new that is really news worthy, but when it rains it pours and spring is on it's way so there should be a bunch of new stuff that will be happening in the months to come, as Commando's we will know about them most likely while it is still in the rumor state, but knowing is half the battle

I responded to this when you posted it, I don't know what happened. Anyway, I think that what your planning is awesome and extremely thoughtful on your part I wish we were going to be there! Maybe we can correlate things for 2014. I think we are going to go in April and celebrate both the kids birthday's, one's is in March the other in May so that would be fair, right?

What's this? Sounds interesting and yes, with all that's happening over at Universal (I like Uni, but LOVE Disney) I need WDW to come with the heat

I wish you could all be there also

April sounds like a good time to go for their Bdays since it's inbetween neither would feel the other is being favored

I have no idea, but like I said in the next month we should be hearing about a lot of new stuff coming
