ME-(wheels turning)- “First class?” Oooh, a couple of G & T’s for mommy and daddy who have now been up for 30 hours…..

DJ-“It’s 4 hours. This isn’t fair on the kids.”

ME- “The kids, what about us? Yeach, $500 bucks and first class ain’t worth it.”

We all sit and wait. They keep asking for 5 volunteers. My stomach feels a knot. They are short 5 seats. And I see an attendant sauntering over to us. With all the people on this flight, why is she zeroing in on us. You know how you can sense when you are the target way before someone is in your zone? I looked up and tried to gauge what she might be going to say. Have they figured out that we were the five seats that got booked when there wasn’t a seat vacant? Did my sweet gal who put us on this flight somehow mark that we were the last reservations? My leg is really swinging. DOES SHE KNOW IT”S OUR FAULTTHEY ARE OVERBOOKED? OKay stuck in cin for 24 hours, here it comes. Well, we got this far, maybe we can go check out the rock n roll hall of fame. Wait, that's cleveland. Dang...

Attendant- Are you sure you folks wouldn’t consider giving up your seat? $2000 in Delta air vouchers, first class on the next flight out and lunch any where in the airport.

DJ- “Thanks, we’ll think about it.” He always acts so cool. Would make a great poker player, only this boy is all about safety.

$2000 – whoa, big fella. Horse of a different color. She got my attention. My adrenalin flows. I see several families listening to the whole thing. I am thinking they might try to horn in on this deal. None of them has little tykes like us-well not as many.…..


Sooo, you can either accept the $500, or KEEP your briefcase...DEAL, or NO DEAL?"

Go to the top of the page and look for an open file folder symbol. There should be a chain showing the pages open, with the last one being the thread you're on, then the topic, then the catagory. Just click on where you want to go back to..

Thanks for LOL! Just got in from the barn. Okay, the cleaning of the stalls. I have several strategies that take no time at all. One, don't feed them. This makes stall cleaning very quick, but you know I am animal lover numero uno, so cruelty is out. Option two, have multiple children so you can resort to child labor. Okay, I am waiting to cash in on this one, but so far, only Sky my boy/girl is the only one who has picked up a maure fork (proper terminology is essential in the snobby world of horses but s---picker upper or something like that works for me, I'm a down home kinda gal), so maybe someday I'll sit back while the dks do my ehem, dirty work. Three, hire someone. uh, I am not spending my Disney money on poop! Four, Lock them out of their stalls, who cares if the elements freeze, soak or burn 'em.

No, you might be able to tell none of these are real options. Truth is I have run in stalls, and sometimes I don't have to clean for days, and sometimes its every day. Summer is the worst cause the little prima donna ponies don't like the bugs, or the sun. If its a hefty day, cold, nasty, lots of hay given to keep them warm, it could take more than an hour. I love my horses beyond belief, but there have been a few mornings over the years that I have mumbled to my self over and over, gotta hurry, gotta hurry, oh I hate this , this sucks...These times are when it is -10 degrees and with the windchil, -35. I kid you not.

I better stop as I don't want my thread shut down!
As much as I would love to keep my horse at home, all of the above stops me. Just spent a month doing morning feeding, watering, turnout and picking of 15 stalls to help our trainer out after she had surgery. Love getting up early and the fresh air. Especially love being alone with the horses in the morning. But it sure would be easier if they didn't eat so much..I have much appreciation for those who do it every day..never mind trying to take a vacation.....and take care of three little ones.....and still have a sense of humor....waiting for the rest of your report.........

Ah Ha Haaaaaaaaaaaaa! OMG that picture, too funny, Kimmar! I am a reality show buff, and used to love watching match game as a doe, (Remember when the big tv night would be sitting with the folks watching Monty, door number one, door number two Oooooooor Door number three- has anyone heard George Carlin do that skit ) so I guess I kinda like game shows too, but there is only so much tv a gal can watch without turning veg! But I will admit that I did turn this show on for a minute one night and the tv moderator in our house, uh, DJ, shut the deal or no deal thread i mean channel, down, I mean off. But now that you post that pic, I am kind of intrigued with this guy in a Yul Brynner kind of way. Kind a sexy he is. At first I was like-ooh Kimmar is showing me her sexy love doll, and then I figured out he's the host of the show DJ won't let me start watching. Not that he has any control over me what so ever, but he does influence me at times.

Girl, I wondered who would pick up the turtle back zoo reference. But I could be from New York...... and the boss, he da' man! I just love his stuff, always have and southside johnny too...... You know, "It ain't the meat, it's the motion that makes your Daddy wanna rock..."

I gotta get off, I am neglecting my child.

Wow! So good so far...I can't wait to see how the extra $1600 turned up.

BTW, I would have done the same thing - 4 hours for $2000?? Sold! That is another trip to WDW baby!

Haven't quite figured out what horse poop has to do with the Walt Disney World trip report - except for that there are horses at WDW and they poop too

Just a friendly reminder that this is a trip report board and about Trip Reports to Walt Disney World

Thanks and I hope you are all having a great day!
