I did a whole lesson with the children in my church one time about how you can never take your words back no matter how you try. I used a tube of toothpaste and squirted a bunch out into a bowl. Then I asked volunteers to put the toothpaste back into the tube...can't be done. It was a great illustration and I think they got the point!

Oh..here are a few fall pictures for you! We took the boys apple picking this weekend!

Love your pictures! I gotta get one of an apple like that!

Love the update. Wendy does look like she could use a cane! I have yet to try Pecos Bill. I'm pretty sure I know where it is at, just never went to it. There are just too many restaurants to try. I need to go for a couple of weeks and try them all! LOL!

Pecos Bill's looks yummy - we always go to Cosmic Ray's and I like the fixings bar there, too (nothing my kids will eat on the Pecos Bill's kids menu....)

Great Pirates pictures, too! You got really clear ones of Captain Jack - my DH is jealous (he's always trying to figure out how to get better pictures).

Thank goodness I wasn't too far behind. Didn't have to work today and came home and...slept. Well, first I took an online Youth Protection course for Cub Scout leaders and parents, then I took a nap. Took too long to fall asleep. Didn't really help.

Tomorrow I work a 1/2, but it's at Will's school, so that works.

Love the update. POC is my favorite Magic Kingdom ride and Pecos Bill is my favorite MK restaurant. We ALWAYS eat there too.

And for the poster who asked about the salad...it's because the lettuce is on the fixings bar, along with tomatoes, cheese, and onions (if you want them-yuck!), and I forget what else. I had the taco salad and put some nacho cheese on it and it was yummy!

We saw Mr. Smee and Captain Hook right after we came out of the Pirates League. Would have been the perfect time to go see them...but we didn't. SO very much we didn't do on this trip. I'm get sadder by the moment about not doing next June...but hopefully we can make it up in 2011. I'm so glad to see Hunter doesn't consider himself "too old".

Looking forward to Tom Sawyer's Island. Another thing...you guessed it...we didn't do.

You are right that you can never be too safe now-a-days. However, one of the reasons why I love Disney World, is the interaction with others. I know that I'm silly for thinking that nothing bad can happen there, but I feel safer striking up conversations with total strangers at Disney World, than I do anywhere else. I don't think I would have taken it the way the family did at all. I would have seen your DH as a dad who had forgotten how soft of skin a little kid has and would have taken what he said as a compliment, which is how he meant it. But to each their own.

Looking forward to seeing Tom Sawyer's Island. We have never gone there before.

Pecos Bill's looks soooo good...I did not eat dinner...I was so tired from that pot of coffee this morning and only four hrs sleep last night. I went to bed early and than Ashton woke up just as Danny came to bed Alice may have been new (but, she did appear older or maybe she was a fill in --trying here)

Great updates, Lisa! I love the POTC photos. The hairy leg guy always grosses me out so bad- the leg looks so real in all of its hairy-ness.
You are going to have to make this TR last until your next trip OR start a PTR for your May trip.

Everyone here participates and shares....personal experience, perspective, random bits of observation. I really feel like I have joined a cocktail party in which there is a central theme...but just a group of great people having fun.

We're glad you're here!

Lisa: Great update again! Yeah, Wendy was looking a little old there. And based on the expression of her face, didn't really seem to be "in character". Some CM's have got, some don't.

Pecos Bill's looks wonderful. I've never eaten there, but all of that food looks so yummy and I've such good things about it, I may have to give it a try.

On the comment that DH made about the little girl, those parents shouldn't have taken that wrong - I agree with Prev. Poster who said it was a compliment from a dad who had forgotten how soft a child's skin was. I mean, he was a man sitting with his wife and two children - what did they think he meant??? People - seriously, take precautions, but lighten up a smidge.

Good morning all,

I'll be back after while to reply to everybody's posts. Missy and Jen's pictures were so good and they show how pretty their country is in the Fall. I thought I'd post a few pictures I took three weekends ago to show you how un-Fall like we are here in North Louisiana. They are nowhere as good as the ones Jen and Missy took though.

We took down our above ground pool (getting a bigger one next year!). There's a big bare spot in our backyard now that's perfect for weiner roasts and for playing in the mud.

Semi-clean Hunter:

Not so clean Hunter:

Oddball before he jumped in the mud with Hunter:

Because we live in a log house, we like to keep our fenceline rustic looking. I say that because it sounds good when I look at it and realize we need to pull the vines off of it. Seriously though, there's an old pasture all the way around our house. No animals are kept there any more. It's all grown up and has full grown trees on it. So, the rustic look does goes with the house. We have birdhouses everywhere.

Ooooh look at our beautiful Fall colors! Not!

Our crabapples aren't ripe yet:

Looking up into the crabapple tree:

I still have tomatoes growing:

And Zinnas:

Four o'clocks:

Let's throw in a couple of roses:

My Disney plant that I borrowed year before last:

Continued in next post.

There were bees and butterflies everywhere that day. I could never get a picture of the butterflies but did get a few bees. The yellow is Goldenrod and is horrible on the sinuses!

This picture was taken towards the end of last week. I was sitting on top of an overpass waiting on traffic. Of course it was raining. This is the interstate. The water is so high on the right of the interstate that it looks like another lane.

Those were beautiful pictures Lisa. Don would love the bird houses too. We have several, mostly ones he and the boys have made. We have several different birds in our yard and a dove's nest under our crepe myrtle. They greet me every morning.

I have a small pict of hairy legs for you to compare to POC
