That sounds like fun! The 2 hour drive down there doesn't, unfortunately. Next time get your layover in Milwaukee. From the back of my office building I can hit a pitching wedge onto runway 7. In theory. Not that I have or anything.

It gave me an excuse to eat more meat! Always a good thing! It was wonderful to have your family & (half of) Tim's. Would love to do it again soon!

And don't worry about the Mr. All my kids friends call me Mr. I'm not their doctor... :

And happy birthday Ron!

as some of you know, I have been trying to convince the wife to go to D World again with the kids.

After the Plastic Wrap incident, I went with a new approach..... guilt ! ! The kids have been laying it on really thick about how bad they want to go, and I may have inadvertantly implied that they need to convince mommy, she doesn't want to go. ... I waited till they wore her down with the constant " don't you love us mommy" comments then hit her with the big one.

My elderly grandmother lives half way between us and D World, I may have had grandma call and ask her to visit sometime soon, as they are getting older and would love to spend some time with kids, it has been so long since they saw her. And since we will be in the neighborhood anyway it only makes sense to go on from there.

So my master plan is working, she has pretty much caved and admitted defeat.

I win, we will go to Disney and alls I had to do was break the little woman's spirit temporarily to make it happen.

The plastic Wrap would have been so much easier if it had worked ! !

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.

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.

If you hit a golfball like I do, that must mean that the runway is about 10 yards in front of you and about 100 yards to the right.

It is my personal belief that nobody should have to work on their birthday.
