not sure if you have a Michaels craft store near you but they have buttons and you can just print pics (cut them out in the circle template they give you) pop them in and viola' you have yourself a buttong.. I think they run anywhere from 50cents - $1 depending on how large you get them!

Wow! Ollie's got a fan base!

I would like to say a personal THANK YOU specifically to the three of you for skyrocketing my wife to a whole new level of dapple-lovin' euphoria.

You think DCL would have any issue with her setting up a booth right there in the Deck 3 Atrium on sea days to promote Dapplebeans: The Ollie Fan Club? We could sell buttons, T-shirts, coffee mugs, mouse pads, backpacks chocked full of Ollie-stamped goodies, hand out (oh excuse me... SELL) autographed photos of Ollie and his Momma, book fan trips, appearances (thanks for that idea ANETNMIKE!), cookies with the little snugglepie's face on them, plush, ceramic figurines, cell phone and PC skins, jerseys, photobooks... the ideas are endless.

Thanks so much for planting them firmly in OlliesMomma's head!

Okay, so brace yourself for I am going to give a Pre Trip Report Cruise Update, and it doesn't have anything to do with Ollie. ( I wonder how many of you readers just backed out of this thread and lost interest. ) By the way, OlliesMomma has totally shared with Ollie himself that he has managed to completely derail my Pre Trip Report thread, and I think he likes it. He walks around here with his head held just a bit higher... his chest puffed out just a bit more. Psst... I think he knows he's gaining notoriety.

So again... an Ollie-free note:

Beginning today I am now on the official countdown to vacation and this cruise. Over the last two weeks at work I have continued to build and build upon the time I was taking off for this cruise. It started with just the days of the cruise itself... then after talking with the wife and thinking about some things I tacked on the two days prior to the cruise, and that was approved so I had off from June 18 - 28. THEN the wife and I got to talking about it more and we wondered if maybe I should just do a major escape from reality and take that entire previous week off of work so.... I DID IT! So I now have to work today through Saturday and then I am DONE DONE DONE until June 29th!



That is cause for some major... MAJOR... celebration! I have never taken that chunk of time off all at once before, but believe me... I need it and I want it! What a wonderful reset before I even board the ship. It'll give me some much needed time to clear my head and get my thoughts transfered from occupational insanity to clear Caribbean brilliance.

So the lists have grown to almost an unmanageable state, the suitcases are sitting with miscellaneous odds and ends in them in the corner of the bedroom, the flippies are being broken in, the purchasing has almost reached a conclusion (thank goodness), so I think we're sitting in a pretty good spot.

Twelve Days!

Oh RV! You are declaring an Ollie free zone?
He might be happy now but wait until he realizes he got left behind
OK.OK. Due to a nasty case of not being able to sleep at 4am and because I am interested in booking an Eastern (and possibly Tortola) I read your last trip report this morning, RV. When I got to the part about the Mickey tattoo I had to muffle the laughter with pillows
I also absolutely LOVED your definition of the Disney gene. In all sincerity, you are certainly a gifted writer.
That being said- my DH and I totally agree with you and Olliesmamma about the healing proprties of ice cream.
What are you planning to explore in the ports on this cruise? Are the Eastern waters really more turbulant?

A special note to Olliesmomma: If your loving husband (RV) is trying to "omit" Ollie from the discussion, he's more than welcome to make an appearance on the gang's Facebook page....

Thanks for reading it!

Oh, and thanks for reminding me! We need to pack baby oil and scotch tape because believe me... the lesson was learned two years ago in the Pirate Mickey Tattoo Incident. Who knew that you couldn't just wipe a temporary tattoo off? I know, I know... probably everybody.

The only port plan we have as of right this moment is to visit The Baths of Virgin Gorda off of Tortola. We ran across is on the excursion list on DCL.com, got curious about it, did the research, and discovered that it's just as easy to do it on our own through ferry and taxi rides rather than book through Disney, so we're going to head that way on that day. It sounds and looks phenomenal! As for St. Thomas, we're going to play that one by ear and see what happens. Probably wander and shop.

As for the waters of the Eastern caribbean... we felt that yes, they were more turbulent. Just our opinion. But we remember someone saying (not please keep in mind that geography is NOT my strong suit) that the Eastern itinerary takes the Magic into more open waters without Cuba to block some of the oceans movement. Made sense to me! We didn't mind the motion of the ocean, but we definitely noticed it more than on the Western.

Overall, thanks so much for the kind words. They always mean a lot to me and it's fun to know that people are reading and interested in what is said. As I've said before, I really write these for myself because my memory is horrendous, and knowing that others are enjoying is a nice bonus!

I'm not trying to omit Ollie at all. I kid, and I joke about him, but in all honesty he is the cutest thing in the whole world and I love him dearly, but most of all he makes my wife happy which again, as I said above, is one of the main goals in my very existence.

As for Facebook... did that a few days ago!

That is awesome that you feel that way about your wife. There are not many DHs like you! I have one and I thank God for him everyday!
I had read the same thing about the Baths tour on other trip reports. I can't wait to see what you guys think as well. This is one of the things that has drawn me to this trip.

As for the waters of the Eastern caribbean... THIS is what I am worried about! I do not want to spend the whole time getting to know the plumbing up close and personal! Or conked out from meclizine! (Bonine)
Olliesmamma- put me down for an Ollie coffecup!
Let me know when the Ollie World Tour is coming to Chicago so we can see him in person! DS is now a fan!

Attn: Dapplebeans: The Ollie Fan Club

I am THRILLED to report that I found the buttons for our Ollie fans. They will start production later this week and will be completed in time for our sailing on the 20th!!


Honey, I'm sorry that I have derailed the pre-trippie once again. Now back to the flip floppy discussion: Are you ever going to post that photo of us in our flippies for all YOUR fans out there??

You mean to say there's a photo of RV is his flip flops already? You know RV it's not official until we see you in the flip flop's on the cruise ship for at least two days in a row. At the time we will post a photo of you wearing them for all to see......
