If I were going to willingly put myself on a plane for anything that long (or more), I would first have to have something to knock me out.

Then, I would only do it to see a) The British Isles; or b) New Zealand. I guess if I were doing the BI's, I could always hop a ferry to the Continent and then do the train thing.

That's one thing keeping us from going overseas, the long plane ride. And the cost. We are talking about going to Hawaii next year. But that depends on the cost of flights and being able to use our points at Aulani.

BTW - I'm at Disney right now! Staying at the treehouse villas for the first time.

Woo hoo! Got a walk in to Be Our Guest. Showed up at 4:15 and they said 15 - 20 minutes now or not at all today. We took it.

They make good drugs for that, believe me.

I'd like to see Great Britain. Can't really describe why in a short amount of sentences, so many different reasons.

Ooo, Aulani. I have never been to Hawaii.

It's actually easier to fly when they are younger. We've flown with DS when he was 7 months, under 3, 5, 7, 8, 10 and 11. It seems the older he gets, the more uncomfortable it gets for him, the harder it is for us!

You haven't met Squirt.

Nemo, my oldest. Super easy flier. As a baby, napped on planes, as an older kiddo, entertained by reading, DS, DVDs, whatever.

Squirt?

Oh good gracious. I can't even get into it. And he's flown...at least three times. We'll see how he does on this trip.

I'm just putzing around on here this morning, and TK, I was looking over all the links in your siggie and found the TR from the May weekend in '09. So I ventured on over and started to have a nice reminiscent read.....esp. the chapter re: our ride on the HM together.....the ride that sealed our friendship lock, stock and barrel.... ......and thinking, y'know, we really ought to do that again someday. You, me, and our gal Tink.


One can dream.....





p.s. Can you imagine what a meal at Casey's would be like now that we are all so comfortable with each other?!!

....the doctors finally did what they were trying to avoid - they amputated my brother's left leg, 5 inches below his knee [and, he is also permanently blind]....plus, my DS, who went into the NJ State Tropper's Police Academy last Monday, is now out....he blew out his knee and they think he tore his meniscus....he'll have to wait 2 years to re-enter....

Aw. That was a great way to spend a day, wasn't it?

Is that first ride we went on together?

And I snortlaughed at your last comment.

I am so sorry to hear that, on both counts. You'll be in my prayers.

...
It was the first two-seater that you offered to ride with me (apparently I was being SO accommodating that I kept insisting you and Tink ride together, happy to do the solo-seat bit). The first actual ride we all did was POTC!!! Woot!

So it's a first of sorts!

Can you believe I actually did remember that POTC was our first ride? What the _____ is wrong with me???? Now that you say it, I do remember waiting for you in front of the flag with Tink.
