They're great people, and a lot of fun. I hope we can do it again someday. Always great to exchange a "virtual" friendship for the chance to shake a buddy's hand and hang out.
So you got a break from the Famous Oblivious Family PB&J road trip sandwiches?

Or did you get DisDadDoc Brand PB&J?

Christopher finally pulls off a win! And to think, he only had to post his entire picture gallery to do it!

Okay, back to yesterday:

1) Thank you to all the encouragement re: the GF swap. I'll keep you informed. We've got a lot of great friends both local and online who have been living GF for 10-20 years so we've got a ton of great recipes. One of whom is going to come by tomorrow with some of her baked goodies for my wife to sample. We've also found an app for our phones (android) that scans barcodes of food to see if it's GF and another that finds local restaurants and explains what you can and can't eat as well as their response to patrons with allergy issues.

2) Seriously - how many pictures did you post, Christopher? Wait, no - how many trips did you cover?

3) I had a DVC question but I answered it before I posted it. NM.

This is crazy, I have a busy life for a little bit and miss a thread and a half. I hate to say it but I will not be reading back to catch up.

Just had to check in and say HI. Wish me luck on talking the DW into another Disney Vacation when the tax refund comes on Friday (hopefully). She said the dreaded words "I would like to see something else", but I will work on that.

The T-shirts look awesome and may have to order one.

Hope everyone has a great day and hopefully next time I jump on the Dis, we are not on DisDadsX.

Entire? Hardly. I have about 10 or12 thousand images +/-, maybe even more when factoring in the unscanned stuff still in boxes and albums , last night just barely scratched the surface. I have no clue how many I actually posted, but I'll guess around 150.. 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 appreciated the pics as well. DL is definitley on my bucket list

Doc grilled up burgers, dogs and brats. He clearly knows his audience well. Although I just realized that we had the kids calling him "Mr." instead of the well-earned title "Dr." the whole time. D'oh!

We ate at one place in NH for lunch that served grilled fluffernutters. Yes, I said grilled fluffernutters. Mmmmm...

Any interest in a New England TR on the DisDads.com site?

Oh, and happy birthday Ron!

Thanks to all of the DisDads who helped with me trying to get the file converted to ringtone for my iPhone. It is still intact so I did not kick the Beverly out of it.....yet

You have GOT to be kidding me...we're off line down here for a few days, and we're six pages into Thread VIII?

What in the world...

So what'd I miss?? Who got to close the last thread that was what? Two weeks old?
