Okay, so maybe I shouldn't have giggled so hard about your rabbit delima (sp?)
Cause here's what happened to us yesterday.
I kept hearing a cat cry and I though it was in my front yard but I couldn't find it - then later as I walked by the fireplace I heard scratching.
No way - a cat in the chimney -
I call my DH, Kevin and he just laughed at me. He said there was no way a cat could get into the chimney and he wanted to know what kind of substances I'd been abusing during the day
He came home to assure me absolutely no way could this happen. He went up on roof to prove to me I was wrong --- where low and behold something had torn a hole in the cover screen to the chimney.
And a flashlight inspection confirmed that there was indeed a cat in the chimney
No way he says hah
So we tried lowering a bucket of food down hoping he would get in and we could pull him out. Nope he wasn't having any of that. We lowered old drapes all the way from the top to the fireplace hoping he would either climb up and out or down where we could get him and we waited
Nope didn't work, that cat just spent the night in our chimney. So we were awoken several times during the night by cat howls.
Finally this morning the cat peered off the ledge in the chimney enough for Kevin to reach up and grab him
That poor thing was solid soot

hmmm, note to self, might need to call a chimney sweep

I love Rob Thomas & Disney World equally. Is that a bad thing? I think not. :)

Hi, I came over from hlrababy's TR.

Very good TR's...2007....2008....and now 2009!

You have cute kids and they are funny too. You have a lovely family.

I really enjoyed reading it all today.

I was wondering if the Walmart you go to in Orlando has Disney merchandise? I know the others do. Maybe I will check out yours if it's nicer.
We usually stop at the I-192 one.

Good morning
I hope you had a fun Memorial day weekend!

I finished reading your trip report and really enjoyed it
You tell it just like I was there with you. I actually finished up on Friday and had reposened to you but computer has being stupid and would'nt log on.

I do have a few question???? if that O.K????

The Florida Welcome center, are they on all routes coming into Fl, are the open 24 hrs and do they give away Orange Juice?

Can you tell me the name of the hotel for $34.95 or recomend a good one? We may be heading down a day or so earlier.

How do your get to the Broadwalk from Pop's or DDT?

We know some one who worked at Sea World when it was here in OH, and would like to see if we could see them.

Can you tell me a little more about the Space MT ride, I like Roller Coaster, but am a little worried about this one.

Would the Swiss Family tree house be O.K. for our grandson?

Is there a better place to ask for at the Garden Grill to sit so you can see the land ride?

How do you get the Simba in the picture from the AK.?

We have asked for a room not with a pool view and on the 1st floor. for grandson safetly, Do you think this will be noise?
Thanks for the help.

You made a beautiful bride and the wedding dress is verry pretty too, Happy (late )Anniversary
Have a good day.
Grace

The Florida Welcome center, are they on all routes coming into Fl, are the open 24 hrs and do they give away Orange Juice?

We know they are on I10 and I75. I assume they are on I95 also. The guest area is not open 24 hours, I think it closes around 5 or 6pm. The bathrooms are open 24 hours. They do have small cups of free OJ.

Can you tell me the name of the hotel for $34.95 or recomend a good one? We may be heading down a day or so earlier.

Knight's Inn. It is old, but was clean enough for one night. We use a coupon from the lodging coupon book from the Florida Welcome Center.

How do your get to the Broadwalk from Pop's or DDT?

Take the bus to DHS, then hop on the ferry to Boardwalk. At DHS, the ferry landing is just to the right of the park entrance, outside the park.

Can you tell me a little more about the Space MT ride, I like Roller Coaster, but am a little worried about this one.

It's in fact not much faster than Goofy's Barnstormer, but since it's in the dark, it feels faster.

Would the Swiss Family tree house be O.K. for our grandson?

My DD and I enjoy it. I's safe for young'uns. DW and DS are really kind of bored with it.

Is there a better place to ask for at the Garden Grill to sit so you can see the land ride?

The restaurant is on a circular floor that rotates about 2 full rotations in an hour. Every seat can see The Land. The lower level of seats (they are larger booths) get a better view, though not by much.

How do you get the Simba in the picture from the AK.?

The Disney Photopass photographer sets up the photo, then they add Simba before you pick up the photo. The same thing happens with Tinkerbell photos.

We have asked for a room not with a pool view and on the 1st floor. for grandson safetly, Do you think this will be noise?

The rooms are fairly quiet. The only real noise is the occasional rolling suitcase or kids walking by the door. We really have never had a problem with pool noise.

I did forget to mention a few things from your TR.

Your DD was a beautiful in her Cinderalla dress just like a litttle princessl You make a wonderful Fairy godmother.

I was glad to see Winnie the Pooh and friends out. I was afraid that we won't see them if we did not eat at Crystal Palace.

I just love Your POP's window Good Job I am going to try to this too.
Did you use tape for the window?
