Freezin: Thanks for the FB friend. I'll be following along on your Trip Report counting the hours until ours comes up. (44 days until departure)

What's worse is the other day, I played the "please stand clear of the doors" spiel as I pressed the auto-close button for the kid's sliding door. The wife just looked at me and shook her head. It made the kid laugh, though.
Brattosa: I gotta get this. That is too funny!

Sign me up! Too many items on that list: names, antennas, appliances, golf accessories, knick-knack overload. Going back for the second time this year with toddlers just because I need to go were life makes sense.

Anyways, I really ought to put links to my last LIVE trip report on my sig (I'll do that when I'm finished here). As a father to two Disney fanatics such as myself (who are now 9 and 6), I'm glad they share my enthusiasm for all things about the Mouse.

The poor sales rep just didn't understand.

The guys here at work are wondering why I'm splitting my side laughing this morning! This almost makes me want to get a minivan just to have a sliding door and try this out!

Countdown: 128 days!!!
How did you know I did that?!? HAHA!

This one is for Trennr, since he is the corn maze man on these boards. Check out this link, this is how Canadians do corn mazes.

Only issue I have is that it is not of the Leafs!

Here's the Scouting News Article for Fender's Farm Boy Scout Maze.

Here's a Black & White Design of it...


It's actually a pretty easy Maze...I learned it in one Night.

Man those mazes look sweet!!

By the way trennr....we need you to report to a maze in Greenville, SC.

My buddy up there says there's been some vandalism, and some unruly youths have been throwing ears of corn at people....

I know it will pull you away from your family for a while, but that's just part of the deal when add "fuzz" to your name....

Oh and by the way, my departure has been changed again...all signs point to me leaving on 17NOV.....home on 22 NOV....

Keeps getting better and better!!!

Great news on your early departure.

You kinda expect that type of behavior from teens...but I have real issue when it's the adults that do it.

The season really starts for me this weekend as our Haunted Maze Starts up tomorrow night at Dark...always brings in a rowdier crowd at night.

My DS14 is a Corn Cop too...along with another Boy who is about 17-18. The rest of the Adults will be Haunting.
