Good seats. Yeah, those idiot fans can but a damper on things, but you just got to watch one one of the top 3 teams in the NBA this season, with one of the best players. Such suffering.

And your response was that it was actually you who taught her all those bad puns, so stop blaming Disney.

My wife and I went to WDW on our honeymoon 15 years ago and we've been back four times since. We have a family condo at Bonnet Creek and enjoy going there as often as our schedules permit with our three kids.

As the ID suggests, I'm a big UT Vols fan and am roughing it living in Bamaland.

‘Morning all…


Bunch of new members… cool!
Did someone start a recruiting thread out there somewhere?
Actually, it seems to me that there’s a Man Law stating that we ought to be doing that anyway.

So apparently you just can’t say it enough.

I talked to DW tonight and she says she has a plan for a July trip to WDW. Should I be scared?
You’re having a rather rough trip back home.
If you go back in the summer… fly. If that’s too expensive (and it always is for us), the traffic really isn’t any worse in July then now. Being as it’s spring break time, it really ought to be better then (after skipping the first week that is).

Proceeding well, her training is.
Now the learner she may be…

I hope you fixed them before you left.

Yes, be very scared. I think you should convince her to go in late August to meet up with some dads.

Marathon weekend? You know a bunch of the dads head down for the marathon. Could be a good opportunity to have Dole Whips with everyone.

Nice haul. Kind of disappointing that you missed out on the Disney tickets and Norm is now is tears at the loss of his lobster, but sounds like you'll be busy for a while.

Sounds to me like you should have been celebrated, not slugged and reprimanded.

What....who...when? What did we ever do to you? It's only one game, can't you let us be happy for one day? It's not like we plan to make the wildcard or anything.

Well, I'd like to hate the Orioles, but they would have to win first. And I'm not sure who to hate in Indiana. Who do you root for?

The only marathons I participate in are those that appear on TBS!
But it certainly is nice to see so many other fellas enjoying my brand of unusual humor. Or, maybe its just humor only fellow men get.

I didn't say we were ALL running in the marathon. Only that some do. The rest of us support them by drinking heavily and yelling for them to keep running.

You sound like a perfect candidate to join Team Sparrow! Norm will be along later to provide the standards for the team. I have to warn you that they include the couch, television and lots of avoiding effort.

You can always console me by sending another batch.

Actually, our wedding anniversary is Labor Day weekend (marriage is the hardest work ever) and I was going to see if I could get you or go directly thru them for another shipment as a present for DW. I had fun cooking them as well.

Aye, then team Sparrow may be for you. Our Captain, and only runner, is James. Then, there is the rest of us - Jim, Brett, Brent and I who will be holding down the couch and drinking heavily, to prevent the couch from flying away. As you can see, this is a seriously challenged team. (That doesn't sound right.). Although, I think it was Brett who mentionned he might start running. Hey Randall, how about posting the teams on page 1.

They were just the shipping company as I know the owner (but they do a good job if you want to pay for it). As mentioned, I am good friends with the lobster boat captain and can get you another group of those little guys at my cost, which is...no cash down, no monthly payments (OK, it's actually some beer, food and a Pats game, but we were going to do that anyway.). I'll call him and see what the numbers look like.
I can certainly make sure he has some available for Labor Day. A happy anniversary present from me. Just remind me a few weeks before and let me know how many so I can let him know to hold them out. If I can get a few before then, I'll send them over. I also promised Philip a few, but I'm not sure he dug the tunnel yet.
