Tower, this is Ghost rider requesting a flyby.

That’s a negative Ghost rider, the pattern is full.

does it seem strange to have that large of a correction? The resort levels only went up by about 1 point a day during that week. most of the other corrections were 2-3 points and that makes sense with the 35% off offer that just came out but 5-6 points seems excessive
I'm too cheap tp use TP< I use a free one instead...

Going to check this out now! Thanks!

Lunch soon? Let me know!

Found a DisDad at lunch today. It wasn't a surprise stalking like Dave, we actually planned it. Thanks to Philip for taking time out of his day to stop by RainForest Cafe in Nashville to visit with us. He didn't bring it up, but we texted later about our plan to pool some points and stay at a THV. The plot thickens...



Philip had to return to work, but we somehow managed to find this place.

A great day at Opry Mills Mall. A nice lunch at RFC, shopping, and GiJoe. It was a good movie, Lady Jaye has great big fake , and lots of guns. There are mostly all new characters and plot lines unanswered, times lines fuzzy, and a lack of advanced weapons, but still fun to watch. Heading to Louisville zoo tomorrow to meet up with David and his family.

Thanks for the visit and taking the time to hang with us. We'll have to get the little ones together next time.

For those interested and waiting, I got the email from Disney Visa today for early marathon registration. You save $15 by registering early using the link. If you need the link, let me know. It says the coupon code is the first 4 numbers of your cc. Or if you are hard up for cash, Norm seems to have CJ's card number lying around somewhere.
Yes, I'll share CJ's card number for a beer or gas money to get my camper to his house.

That is getting later into August and some school districts are back in session. I'm surprised it jumped that much though.

Kind of hard to forget what I saw Sunday...
That was a brutal injury. I watched it live as well. Glad you had an injury free game.

Looks like it will take a while to fix the damage. They may want to change the name of the ship. I know it's supposed to be bad luck but how much worse can it get?
The top three new names, off the top of my head:

Titanic
Fireball
Flying Dutchmann

Thank you and your family again for inviting me, I have enjoyed both of our meetups your family is great, I told DD that i got to see the girls that she sat with during the Halloween Parade and she said "can i go see them tomm?"

Norm even offered to buy lunch but I refused since he had yet to hit up the Disney Store so I knew he would need the money lol and I forgive you for drinking a beer in front of me knowing full well I had to go back to work haha

I think after a few more meet ups DW will be all for your THV idea
I had a great time, always game for future meet ups

I really like oprymills but every time I pass it (everyday) I always think about Opryland, that's where my love of theme parks started, had season passes every year and miss it, the original oprymills plans did have a roller coaster in it (I guess to silence people like me that didn't want to see the park go) but somewhere the roller coaster idea was scraped.

Maybe they are teaming up with the penguins
