Sadly, no. I'm terrible when it comes to food pictures. I'll just have to describe it really well.



Amazingly, yes! We had a pit stop in Danbury and then decided to take the Palisades Parkway down to the NJ Turnpike. I was shocked at how well it was moving. No delays whatsoever. We were able to meet my old college roommate for dinner, too.



If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball.



I did get a good picture of her with my kids. I felt bad leaving--they'd just warmed up to each other and were having a blast destroying Chris' furniture when we had to go.

By the way, I asked Juliana what her favorite Disney ride was and she said, "EVERYTHING!" Good job, Tim.





I think Tim and I exchanged a glance that basically said, "Eh, it's not our house."



If it had been my house, they would have been everywhere.



This wasn't you, was it?

B. It takes at least my 4 iron to put a hole in aircraft grade aluminum. But only if it's 30 or 40 yards to the right of where I was actually aiming.

Oh, and Happy Birthday to Aaron and Ron!

It's combining thoughts like this into single posts that keeps me in the single- and double-digits on these threads. Oh, and work.

Thank you for drawing my attention outside to notice this. I just seeded some grass yesterday evening, so I was hoping we might get a light shower out of this instead of snow. Oh well, nothing we can do about it.

Sounds like a lot of fun. I guess as long as they didn't burn Chris' house down or something, it's all good!

I'd be happy if I could get a ball to go 100 yards in any direction.

Guys, I have an actual question for you...

I'm renting DVC points for our May trip, and was wondering how the check-in procedure differs from checking in at a resort, if at all. Especially if someone has done the points-renting thing and can walk me through any potential "gotchas", that would be great.

Thanks in advance.

I rented points for our trip in December. Check-in seemed to be just as easy for us as it was for everyone else. I don't think they have any way of knowing that I wasn't the owner of the DVC contract- not that I think it would matter anyway. Have fun.

I play to win my friend... otherwise, one might as well just go home. Too many years of competing with my dad and brother in things, and coming out the loser 99% of the time I guess.

Stupid spring. 76 degrees last week, and now this. This is definitely one thing I don't like about living in Indiana... the stupid weather fluctuates WAAAAAAAAY too much.

Mine was already turning a nice healthy green, flowers popping up, trees budding.... ugh. Let's just skip spring and bring on summer.

Is the reservation in your name? Then you should have no problems, and nothing out of the ordinary. Just check-in, put your CC on file with the desk for charging privileges (or not, if you so choose), and enjoy! There really is nothing special about the process on the check-in side of the equation.

Perfect. Thanks, guys. The reservation is in my name; I have been checking that throughout the process.

The majority were from 3 specific and distinct visits to DL, others were random vintage shots from DL, and the vintage WDW ones were from either my first visit in 1991 or my 2nd visit in 1992- I don't recall which.
I'm looking forward to the end of this page so we can have the DIS Dad's Iron Poster picture challenge.
