I am pleased to inform you that a digital photograph of your LGM made the cut.

Never fear, I shall catch up with you one of these days.

Let me translate what Slightly Goofy said............


I always take a stack of LGM with me when I stay at Sports.
Whenever I see a window has been decorated, or a notepad attached by that room's door, I leave a LGM and a note.


Some peeps respond on the Dis, some don't, but I enjoy letting Sports guests know I stopped by and loved their decorations.

Slightly Goofy and I have been playing 'tag' for a long time now.
Haven't found her at Sports as our dates are not the same anymore.
but there is always the chance it will happen again!!

Too funny

Macraven, you are far from the first to have to explain me. I am sure that Angwill enjoyed the respite.

Do you have a favorite time of the year when you go to DW? Do you go anywhere else in Florida?

since about 2004, i am at the motherland for about 9 days/8 nights.
(some years it has been 11 nights)

on the average, i go to the motherland about 9 days prior to columbus day.

the past years that means i am at Sports around sept 24 thru early october.
then i move to the darkside for 9-10 nights on site there.


it usually works out the last week of september i am always at the motherland resort for the starting period.

when i go other times in the year, it is late spring.

never in the winter as i can't count on O'Hare/chicago, not having weather delays or changes.
Milwaukee can be just as bad.

the airports can clear up more easily than the highway getting from my home to the aiport.

The next trip will be the first we have ever made while trying to spend less. We are usually in full-blown-anything-goes vacation mode while there.

Since we live in FL now, have annual passes, and grandchildren, we are trying to keep costs lower. The less we spend, the move often we can go.

Bringing along some groceries was my first "thrifty" thought since Disney food is over priced and not great anyway.

BTW, what is an LGM?

Too funny that Home Depot no longer carries the LGM. I wonder if they ever figured out why that was the color sample most people took but never bought that color paint. Did they discontinue the color or stop the MH chips?

SG, I am getting too used to you and just figured if I understood it everyone did. lol

I believe I was at ASSp at the same time as Macraven once as well. End of May beginning of June. Our paths never crossed sadly and all we had in the window was whatever my DS chose to put there. Usually a Mickey bear and other toys or towel animals if we get them. When we have decorated it is always fun to get little notes from other Disers.

I hope everyone enjoys their upcoming trip and has the time of their lives.

Resemble

Hey, I resemble that Ang.

No more LGM's? Figures as now I live within a block or two of a HD. Are the paint chips at least MM shaped?

I decorate and even have a magnetic holder for people to leave notes in. One year I had so many that I pretty much just stayed at the Food Court to meet all those wonderful people.

One day, Macraven, one day!

Low rent

Luster, do you mean to say that we are just 'low rent' types?

Truth is I do not like the GF et al because I like to go barefooted and I sometimes scratch where it itches.

I just love running around some high rent places because some folks act like my fat is contagious. If they really tick me off I will go in a dress shop and act like I want to try something on.

Not at Disney

I need to add to the previous post and say that I never get those feelings at DW anywhere. Maybe on the boards sometimes but not at DW but those folks are not ones I care to associate with any old way.

Not sure, but you could always get the line green plain paint chips and buy a Mickey head punch in the scrapbook aisle at a craft store and make your own.....
