Terrific scrapbook Chels.

It's been a pleasure spending the Winter with you. When I first checked in on your TR I never thought it would last this long. I gave me something to look forward to and your perspective of the World was entertaining to say the least. As I've said before, I hope you get back to WDW a lot sooner than you expect.

If you ever see a somewhat short 70's plus man with white hair and beard walking down Main Street it might be me.

If I don't run into you again on the boards here's wishing you all the best from the North Country.

Have a wonderful life Chels. You deserve it!

Thanks so much. It really was a lot of fun (if I had the time and money, I'd most definately make another one). I came up with a new idea every day. Originally, it was meant to be a 20 pg or so scrapbook but it just sort of blossomed.

I'll be looking. Lol. Thanks for joining me. I still don't quite understand how a 6 day trip could be spread out over 9 months, but I guess it's possible.
Have wonderful future vacations.

I really love your scrapbook. Now, I know why your mom started crying. It looks like a lot of love and work went into it. Mine always come out either too messy or too plain. I plan to do one for my cp this fall and I hope it comes out at least decent.

I miss the beach. I've never been to Cocoa Beach or the beaches close to it. It looks beautiful in your pictures.

5 years before you go to Disney? Wow, that is a long time. You will never know, maybe you can go earlier than that. But, if you don't, have fun with your friend when you do go.

Yeah, the cp had always been a dream for me when I was growing up, so I was so excited when they accepted me. Good luck in trying out for cp when you start college. (Heck, if you don't have any plans after you graduate high school, why not try out for the Career Start program, so you can go even earlier. Its only for one semester, so think of it as a break before you start college.)

Your TR is one of the best ones I read so far. You are really good at writing. Good job on writing such a fantastic TR and is hoping to read more from you.

Thanks for joining me. CP sounds like so much fun and I'm debating possibly doing it. Although, I might just work there in the summers.... Who knows. Yeah, 5 years til Disney World. Hopefully less, but, you never know.

Ok. So for everyone who's interesting (and I'm sure most of you aren't) here's a picture of me from "Pirates of Penzance" just a few weeks ago. A fellow policeman and I were going around the auditorium to sing "If you're scared of pirates (and you know it) clap your hands". This is a posed picture someone took of me (had to crop the other chap out).

Just had to comment on the Penzance pose. I'm not too afraid of pirates but I wish I could say the same for Police with Rosy cheeks!!!!!

Somehow I don't think you were following the original script. I saw the Movie version the other day with Linda Ronstadt and your lines were not in there.

The English version was called A Slave Of Duty. Penzance was first performed in the USA on Dec, 31 1879 & in England on April 03, 1880.

Did you know, I'm sure that you do, that The town of Penzance is in Cornwall England?

The movie version is weird. All we "said" in the show was tarantara, but beforehand, we went and interacted with the audience. Hence the made up song.

You have the dates mixed up, but yes indeedy I did know the premiere dates. I've actually had to tell people that Penzance really does exist. Good to know the history.

I double checked the dates and believe I was correct. There was a single earlier performance in England On Dec. 30, 1879 , with a different cast, to secure the British copyright.

Roger on the history.

I don't know if you still check this anymore but I really really enjoyed your TR. It was so entertaining! I truly hope you get to go back one day.

Thanks for reading and following along! (I didn't even realize my thread was still open, haha). I'm hoping to get back one day soon, too. Who knows?

I just wanted to post and tell you I've thoroughly loved your TR. I just found it randomly (and just found the DIS boards recently) so I'm new to it, but I really enjoyed it. You've a wonderful "voice" for narrative writing.

I really don't think I'll have the stamina or the time to do one next (school) year. It took me FOREVER to do one this year for WDW. But you never know...

Thank you and welcome to the DIS. It's a very addicting place, I must say. Like now, I SHOULD be writing my English essay. But am I? Nope. I'm on the DIS. (Just for the record, the essay isn't due for a few more days.)
