Not me I do think it's Pat. That's pretty funny, aren't there 2 of those crayons in there? I remember her posting about it.

The final product



Seriously? Is Agent P really a character? I guess, but not one I wanted to draw. Oh well.

Continued In Next Post......
OMG, you were SO not happy that it was Agent P! I'd totally forgotten about that

Yep, Grouper. At least that's what the receipt says

You got some lovely nighttime shots!

Wow, Mary Ellen - what an adventure! I'm sorry that you and Denny had to have part of your vacation in the hospital, but so glad that it turned out okay. Denny is lucky you are in the cardiac business! Thanks for sharing the story so we can all be aware! I'm happy that you extended your trip to make up for it too!

Back to WDW - cool nighttime shots - I like your favorite best too!
Agent P - you did a good job, but surprising that he was the choice. They are really pushing the Phineas and Ferb stuff everywhere now.

Wow, Mary Ellen. I'm so glad that Denny was able to get a stress test and then angio, and is now okay. His symptoms sounded like those of a former boss of mine who passed away suddenly last summer. He never made it to the stress test.

Slowly catching up so I can enjoy the photos. Your Animal Kingdom morning looks great. how nice to just go in, do what you want and head out.

MEK GREAT EE photos! I felt a little dizzy on the backwards part how can you snap all those photos on a coaster?

Cynthia - so did they replace the necklace? I saw you bought one similar, so I am guessing no, but have to ask!

Your photo pass picture by EE came out very nice despite sunglare.

be back soon!!

Not so much an aversion but a detail over looked. There are 2 yellow- green crayons in the queue one in the stand by and one in the FP line and they are NOT the same color. I guess it just bothers me.

We got home around 11pm, which wasn't bad. It was after 12:30 when we left Charleston. Sometimes its just better to get home really late, then you don't have time for the "I'm home" blues.
Hahahahaha - the signage is awesome. I think its all been changed since the last time I was there. Unfortunately, we didn't have time to eat with Pedro. So sad!

I guessed it right then. Rest room stop and even though unlikely, you had to be driving for it to happen, and home by around 11.

He rides a racing bike. He is having this pain with very mild exercise. He is experiencing classic angina and needs a stress test".

She says, "I'm not so sure the cardiologist will agree with you, but "fine", I'll call her".
As someone who has had 2 very good friends survive the widow maker ( one with 5 stents) and both as well as myself are CPR instructor trainers, it is easy to dismiss some signs.
Thankfully you knew and Denny knew not to. That is certatinly a different way to spend the vacation but so glad everything worked out as well as it did.
So glad they were receptive to a cardiac nurse.... I also hope the ED doc realizes she needs to dig a bit more.

Very Nice Pictures of DHS all lit up.


Your dinner looks amazing.

Agent P really?

Nice to cap off a great evening with a late night TSM.

Oh my! Nearly complete occlusion! How extremely lucky for Denny that you knew to insist on the stress test which resulted in the cath which resulted in the PTCA. Thank goodness for your intuition! Glad to hear that it turned out well.

Back to your TR.. great job for your Agent P drawing.. totally looks like him. As for the kids with the balloon hats.. hmmmm... yeah, that would be pretty annoying.

Sounds like you opted for the "green experience" post dinner while Cynthia was up for the "orange, more intense experience" after HBD.

Oh my goodness!!! That is such a scary ordeal to go through!!! And... I personally do appreciate your story...even if I don't really want to hear it.

See... I grew up with my father having one or more heart attacks a year. He was one of 13 kids... all of whom had issues with their hearts in some way. My dad... he died at age 45.

At 30 I was diagnosed with PVC and PACs... nothing major, but experiencing arrhythmia's can be troubling none the less...and I stood up to take note. As you probably realize... I do run. I keep myself at a somewhat normal weight... and I like to think I am keeping myself away from that dangerous set of genes that I am all but certain I have. Now you go an make me think... maybe not? But... I am female. That makes a difference, right.

So will Denny be able to resume normal activities then? Will this be a problem long term for him? It is so good that he had you there with him.

I am so glad things worked out and you were able to enjoy a couple days after all this stress.

Cynthia, I am very impressed with your last morning. In one hour you were sure able to get around MK!

Mary Ellen, I love your Agent P. We love Agent P here... so Yes. yes, he is a real character.

So glad everything turned out okay. You definitely deserved some 'make up' vacation days after that!

Yes, that ToT picture is awesome! Hollywood Studios is a cool night park with all the neon lights.

Pretty pictures looking across the lake from Boardwalk to Beach & Yacht Club, too.

Health issues are stressful anytime but when they happen on vacation it is unnerving. I am so glad Denny is ok!

Love your Agent P even if he isn't a "classic" character

Wow, Mary Ellen- so sorry to hear about Denny. I can't imagine how stressful and scary it was for both of you to go through, especially being far from the comforts of home. Good for you (and thank God) you advocated for him and insisted that he have the stress test. Sending positive vibes for continued recovery!!!

Thanks for sharing the story with us. I don't think you can reinforce enough that it is better to be overly cautious than to dismiss symptoms like that, especially if you have a nagging feeling things aren't quite right.

************************************************** ***

Back to Disney- what an amazing last day you both had!!!

Cynthia- the pictures in France are really, really beautiful. I always stop for solo photopass shots when I am alone- same reasons- the number of pictures of me on vacation, with or without family, are very slim. Plus the rest of the family always roll their eyes when I insist on photos, so this is another way to get my money's worth.

Gorgeous pictures, both from your walk to BW ( the one of the Yacht Club through the trees) and to HS. Both sets of pictures of ToT at sunset are breathtaking. Love them!

Hmmm- the last two reviews I have read of meals at HBD have not been encouraging- mostly issues with servers (I am referring to emmysmommy's review). The food looked really good, though! Mmmmm- the grouper sounds incredible!

Great night shots at the Studios. What a gorgeous place at night.

Cynthia- you had a fantastic morning at MK. I love how much you were able to accomplish in that first hour or so, before the swarms of people show up. I absolutely adore the picture on BTM with the castle and steamboat in the picture.

Nice meet-up!
