Two years ago my neighbor and I got letters from the homeowners assoc the 3rd week in January saying our Christmas lights needed to come down. I mailed it back with a note that said, "Do you really think Christmas is the only holiday in the world that is celebrated with lights? If you continue to harrass me I will be consulting a lawyer.". I waited until March to take them down and never heard another word about it. We actually considered going out and buying all the extra c9 bulbs when they went on clearance so we could just keep changing the colors as the year went on, red and white for valentines, green and yellow for St Patrick's, red white and blue for the 4th,............

I love messing with the home owners people.

I Made It To Disney!

I made it to Orlando but I did not do any of the Disney Parks. I had a room paid for for three nights at the Omni at Championsgate and I had free tickets to Universal and Islands of Adventure. We were not going to go and just eat the cost of the room because my wife could not get off of work (we booked the room on priceline and could not cancel). It was my birthday weekend so my son and I, with my wife's approval, packed up and drove 11 hours to Orlando from NC.

We hit the pool and used our free tickets to Universal and Islands of Adventure. Although I did not have the time or money to do any of the Disney parks my son and I went to Downtown Disney and ate at The Earl Of Sandwich. That by far is the best food deal in Disney! Great sandwichs for $5.95! From there we took the bus to the Contemporary Resort so that we could ride the monorail. We rode "Old Bandaid" through EPCOT, took the Ferry to Magic Kingdom, and took a boat to the Wilderness Lodge. From there we rode the bus back to Downtown Disney. We did this to get a litte Disney fix before we left that evening. Sorry this is all jumbled up but I rushing to get to my nephews birthday party.

Oh...Please do not drive to Floriday via I-95 during this time of the year at night! The deer are all over the place! There was blood and deer body parts all over the interstate. They were coming so close to my car! It is really not safe out there right now. I saw two accidents. One of which rwo people died when two vans collided! I believe they were trying to avoid deer.

Hey Stopher!
I saw in your signature you're going on the 9/1/11 cruise. DW and I were sitting down last night and running the numbers for a cruise. That was one that we were actually looking at! It doesn't look like it will actually happen this year, but what a coincidence that would have been! Evan could have shared his cheese balls with you while we were on the ship!

Too bad your wife couldn't make it but at least you got to have some "man time". I briefly thought about leaving in the middle of the night and getting to the parks mid morning but after driving it last September in the day decided there was no way. Those hours through SC with nothing but trees on both sides must have been pretty stressful.

Making the drive in 2 weeks, do they still have that 20 mile construction zone in GA?

How long are you there for and where are you staying? We're at AK Kidani from the 17th to the 24th.

Did you ever decide on the stroller thing?

My DW will never hear the end of it.

I usually take all of the pictures but my DW grabbed the camera from me on Kilamanjaro Safari. I have given her grief about this picture every day since. She just blushes and laughs but swear she didn't know. At least this gives me something on her.

This was too good not to share and since its the dads club i figured it was ok...

And for my day:
Me: work work work
text from wife: kids kids work. "Oh, I think we should take the DVC tour in December."
Me: (in my head ) out loud: "um okay. Why?
DW: "Cause you'd like it"
Me: (in my head) out loud "okay."

Plot note: i'm the Disney nut, not her... so for her to bring it up is a big deal.

then i got home, dug her garden, got the kids baths and asleep, and saw on the calendar it was April 1st. I called her on it, and she said was being serious.
Yeah... I would have been a skeptic too since it was 4/1!! I'm going to try and get DW in a DVC tour this year

Note to self: when the kids need to get the "birds and the bees" talk, don't forget to include the rhinos.

I'm glad to hear that you got to ride Old band-Aid that is the highlight of my WDW trips!

Does that mean no fish sticks and tomato soup in the cafeteria for lunch today?


In case anyone is looking into it, we went to Mickey's Rockin' Road Show last night in Charlotte. It was a really good show, Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy, Tigger, Buzz, Woody, Jessie, they even threw in Cinderella, Fairy Godmother, and the stepsisters to cash in on the whole princess thing. It was an hour and a half including the 15 minute intermission with a 15 minute pre-show thing. Weird moment in the pre-show video, Mickey calls out Toodles and he actually had a face and told Mickey what the tools were. You could tell all the real Disney parents because they were looking at each other asking why Toodles was talking?
