2. Big Bertha is the organ over at Grand Floridian.

4. Oswald the Rabbit was created by Walt, but not for Disney studios. As I recall, the place he worked at that time ripped off all rights to Oswald so then Walt decided to go into business for himself. Additional trivia indicates that he wanted to call his next character Mortimer Mouse, but thank goodness his wife Lily came up with Mickey instead. Really, who would want to look for Hidden Mortimers?

Twokats - I will keep you and your family in my prayers. I was not able to be there for my Mom when she passed away in May. I wish I could have been there for her. How blessed your mom is to have so much support from you!

My DH is being very supportive especially in that he and my DS are being neglected and having to take care of everything by themselves. And to top it off my DS sprained his ankle very bad on Saturday afternoon. I know my Dad is standing at the gates waiting for her to join him.
Believe me, I have had a few private pity parties, but then I take a deep breath and carry on. I just want her to be in peace.
Thanks to all of you groupies and I hope everyone is keeping cool. We have been over 100 for well over two weeks in a row.
So sorry to hear about your mom and your son. Prayers are being said for both of them as well as you. Knowing that a parent will be better off once the battle is over certainly doesn't make it any easier. When my dad died, it was such a relief that his battle was over. But my heart still broke.

Weather here has been horrendous, too. This is why I could never enjoy WDW in the summertime. I've been trying to stay inside in the A/C but errands still need to be run. I can't imagine being over 100 much less for two weeks in a row!

My secret is that we are taking a DCL cruise next August to Canada, to ports that I know nothing at all about. There is a thread started on the cruise board to help us with info about the locations. Since I know nothing about the area, I wanted Dynaguy to join the DIS so that he could subscribe to that thread and help me with the research and planning.

And since he was joining for that thread, I told him he HAD to come check in on the moose thread since he already knew people here. I warned him that you guys here knew all about our puppy Cinderella, the family surgeries, my temporary retirement, etc. Also told him that you are the most supportive people I've ever met. Prayer requests here are met almost before they are even requested. I really hope we will be able to make it to a group meet in December so that we can meet more of you in person.

Now as far as the name Dynaguy, it isn't what I would have selected for him. But his favorite movie is the Incredibles (he has almost all of the Disney Incredibles pins for his collection.) And we often use the phrase "capes are bad" in our house. I guess no one else wanted to be known as a dead Disney character.

Hi Groupies! I'm back from my trip west, and my grandmother's memorial service. It was a fun-filled weekend full of family and friends time, as well as a day at Disneyland on Monday. The memorial itself on Saturday went really well... thanks for the prayers and kind words leading up to it last week. I spoke as I had mentioned, and despite my nerves, and a couple of times of breaking down almost crying, it was good and fun. Several of my cousins also spoke, along with aunts and uncles and my dad. All in all there were about 70-75 people there - with family members in from 10 states. This was the first time that the 6 cousins from my generation were all together at one time in about 25 years. I had an awesome conversation with one of my great uncles (my grandmother's younger brother, and now the last living relative from her immediate family - there were 6 siblings originally). Another great-uncle who is 94, almost 95, recognized me without any problem - announcing, "there's Christopher!" as soon as he walked into the room. There was plenty of laughter, tears, hugs and remembrances. We could all picture her dancing in heaven, and were so thankful for the wonderful life that she had led.

Disneyland and California Adventure were fun. I stayed in the renovated Adventure Tower at the Disneyland Hotel, and of course went over and sat in the lobby of the Grand Californian for a while. I got to ride the new Little Mermaid ride, as well as experienced the new Star Tours again (I did it 14x at WDW in May, but only 3x at DL... but still saw something new that I had not seen at WDW in one of those 3 trips). I enjoyed the new "Mickey's Soundsational Parade" at DL, and got to hang out with some friends.

I also spent time with my FIL at his place in San Clemente. I am sad to report that he continues to go downhill. He is very much in denial still. It was very frustrating and sad while I was there. He LOOKS okay, but is just getting worse. More pain, harder to walk, hard to sleep, etc, etc. He's a stubborn man and that just exacerbates it. But despite it all, it was wonderful to hang together and spend some good one on one time with him.

Okay, that's about it for now. I'm beat, and need to hit the hay. I landed at 12:30am this morning, home by nearly 2am - then straight to work and meetings all day and evening. Phwew. I'll be back on here tomorrow or soon.

Take care all.

I thank all of you again. She is hanging in there, but still goes down daily. I also have a good support system around here. I have had plenty of people around to give me time to run errands and keep appointments, but it is hard not being home at night. I have laughed and told my husband it will take him two truck loads to move me back home with all the stuff I have brought up here to be able to get stuff done.

We are still in the triple digit temps. Our county finally joined the burn ban status. I think there are only 5 counties left in the state before we have all involved.

Hope all groupies have had a good week.

Glad you're back and had a nice time despite the sad reason for going. We look forward to you in daily discussions and hearing about your upcoming trips.

14X on Star Tours at WDW and 3X at DL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That's amazing! I've been on it 12X so far, but hope to do some catching up in a couple months. I do have to say I did see all the possible scenarios in those 12X.
Glad to hear you're back safe and sound and enjoyed yourself.

Glad things went so well at the memorial service and that you got to see so much of your family. It is just a shame that those are the times when we get to see people we haven't seen in forever. Glad you got to spend some time with your FIL too. Sorry that he is not doing well. I'll keep him in my prayers.

Awww. I am so glad that all went well for you and your family. And I'm glad you got to spend some more time with your FIL.

Lifting him up in prayer.


PS can you try texting me again? I am still not sure what happened that I could not receive yours a while back.

I got some bad news yesterday about an old friend.

To begin with, his wife died at the end of May (she is early 60's) this year. And yesterday he passed away (same age).

She had cancer and he had ALS and I believe, a broken heart.

My only reason for posting this is that some days I just have to be shaken a little and realize how fragile life is. That and, don't wait too long to talk to someone about their loss of a loved one. I held onto his email about his beloved wife passing away and was waiting for the dust to settle to tell him how much we loved her and that she will be missed.

Chuck and I cried last night and asked the Lord to please tell this wonderful couple
that they are loved and we will see them again one day.

Thanks for listening Groupies.
