Well, crap. I ran to town today, went to Driver's License place, KMart, WalMart & the car delearship for an oil change. Now that I'm home I went to take my rings off to put on some lotion and.....my Bret-ring is missing. My last stop was the car lot and I'm sure I still had it there, so I'm hoping I will find it in the truck or the yard or somewhere....I guess it's a good thing I didn't spring for the gold one. I think buying a ring that fit my fingers in hot temps and expecting them to fit in cold temps maybe wasn't such a good idea - I guess I should have gotten it a little bit smaller.

Sounds like a nice Food and Wine morning Tanya. I may have some stories about the phone booths in the World Showcase later on in my TR.

Hope you find your ring.

No luck on the ring....so unless it just happens to turn up some strange place it looks like it's gone. I checked the truck, the yard, and even the garbage can where I threw away my mcdonalds sack when I got home. I know if I don't find it, when I replace it I will go a little smaller.

Oh no, Tanya!! What an awful thing to lose!! I almost flushed mine down the toilet once on accident (long story) but saved it just in time. Can you try to call your city's lost and found dept?? I really hope it turns up- I'd be so sad to lose mine!

I live in a town with a population of about 300 give or take a few....there is no lost and found. I did stop in at the post office and asked the postmaster if anyone turned one in, in case it slipped off when I was getting in or out of the truck there. If it fell off "in town" that would be Galesburg, which is 20-some miles away (pop. 33,000) - I did call the car lot to see if anyone found it there either, no luck. But you never know - this spring I could be doing something in the kitchen and it could come rolling out of it's hiding place.

I lost my mothers-ring several years ago. I was getting stuff out of the back of our van during our local carnival and I noticed it was gone. I tore up the van looking for it - nowhere. I asked a few people who were in the vicinity of the van. The next day during the pedal tractor pull, one of the carnival workers brought my ring to me and asked if that was it. It had evidently come off when I was getting money out of my pocket to by ride tickets for the boys because it was in front of her ticket booth. And then there was the time I lost my class ring at a weenie roast - found it under a clump of dried up.....well, unpleasant stuff. Don't know how it got there - but Dad had a metal detector, and it found it. So, yeah - I have a history of losing rings.

Tanya, so sorry to hear about the ring. I will keep my fingers and toes crossed that it "pops" out from somewhere soon.

That evening we plan to go back to the studios for the Osborne Lights. I don't know how smart that is since it's the first night they will be lit and I imagine it will be a zoo - but it's also extra magic hours that night so DH seems to think that will give us a better opportunity (more time) to see the lights. Since we are at Boardwalk we can take the walking path to get "home" so the crowds won't affect us as far as transportation
.

Monday started with coffee and toast in the room. Danny had gotten a new lens for his camera that he wanted to try out on the safari, so we headed out together. He headed for the bus stop and I moseyed over to Epcot.

Last time I took you around Epcot with me…..this time I will try to recreate DH’s adventures.

He started out



Stopped briefly to take a few pictures of





and hurried over to



where he got a fastpass and then got in line where he saw




























And then he went back and did it again – requesting to sit on the other side of the truck this time.








hmm…..is he licking his lips????

Then it was time to spend a little time

















And no visit is complete without





These are his favorites – the mama and baby





This is who I was ready to fix him up with Sunday evening







After taking 125 pictures of various gorillas he decided to go for a little ride....

Past these



to





where he saw

Indian Princesses



and other friendly creatures













then it was time to take this



back to here



and time to play with that new lens a little more







And this is where I need to take a break – because I still have about 300 more pictures from his morning to get uploaded....

And for informational purposes - the first picture of the Animal Kingdom sign was taken at 9:08AM. The last pictures of the Tree of Life that I have uploaded (so far) were taken at 12:13. At that point he was on picture #513.....for the day......

Great update, Tanya. You got some really SUPER pitures of the gorillas and the safari (I especially love the baby elephant at the edge of the water. That is a WHOLE LOT of pictures you took if you still have 300 more to upload.

Thanks Kat - but those are all Danny - I didn't even make it to AK on this trip. His official picture count for AK that day was 853 and not a single silly hat picture in the bunch! But that was his plan for the day - he wanted to go over there and take lots of pictures. I think in some cases he took so many of the same thing because he was playing with his lens - gotta love digital cameras. Sure wouldn't be doing that if you had to buy the film for each picture.

More to come - I've got the last batch of that day uploading now.....

Wow Danny got some great pictures. Looks like that new lense was worth it.

I'm sorry you lost your ring. If your luck holds out maybe it will show back up. You may have a history of losing rings but you also have a history of finding them.

Cont…..

I left you at 12:13 with Danny circling the Tree of Life trying out his new lens. But apparently I missed lunch. It looks like at 11:54 he stopped at Tamu Tamu for a cheeseburger and diet coke. I don’t know where Tamu Tamu is….I am assuming it is somewhere along the route from Harmabe to Asia because his next stop was here





and then on to visit some of my favorite creepy critters











and these not so creepy….but still wouldn’t want to get close and personal with – guys













And then on over to these guys – who bear a remarkable resemblance to the ones I try to avoid on the highways around here





this one looks like a plain ol’ cow to me



The meerkats evidently had the day off…..

But there were some feathered friends….







Must be backtracking now



hmm – I thought he just left here


maybe that’s why he was backtracking…to get the sign

I don’t think he rode this



But here’s one for Glenn’s mutant animal collection







The backside of water???









And now it is time for a photo shoot with the kangaroos













39 shots later the kangaroos had had enough and sent him on his way to





He looks like his legs were put together backwards…
