Well, geesh Pkondz, where would the fun be in forgetting it? I mean friends don't let friends forget something like that. Anyway, I show I care by reminding you. You have two daughters and a wife......surely this isn't new territory for you!

Okay, okay, sorry for leaving you guys hanging! It was a very busy weekend! I discovered my infant car seats were expired so between soccer game, church, college football, getting a new car seat and going to see Hotel Transylvania with DH and the kids, I didn't have time to respond.

Smidgy you are bingo "on the nose" for DH. Carrie, you are close which is saying something as we have only communicated in the TRs. Nebo, you are so very close, but in fairness to the ladies, you are spoken to me and from conversation probably have a better feel for my age. I am a bicentennial baby so I am 36. Great guesses you guys and congrats Nebo for being so very close!

you know I'm just kidding, right?
And with your use of "he" you have just become one of DS's favorite people. He really would like a little brother. It wouldn't take too much for baby Buzz to beat you in a hair contest, but sometimes a good bit of the newborn hair falls out so while there may be an intial baby advantage, it could slip away and little buzz be bald.

DH and I have joked in reading the TR about using "Nebo" as middle name. It's been a TR baby so I can definitely see the humor in it!

I had a checkup today that will extend your hope for a shared birthday. The midwife, who at my last checkup indicated she was thinking of moving up the due date, has instead kept the date as 11/22/12, which with my overdue history keeps 11/26/12 as a possible birthday for baby Buzz. We'll just have to see. I mean I am a Nebo TR fan, but even you must admit that holding out to give birth in your honor is taking things just a little too far, don't you think?

Nebo, OMG that chapter was fricking hilarious!! I was trying to read the yellow jacket part to DH and I could not get the words out, I was laughing so hard! I'm really sorry you got stung, but good grief, the way you tell it makes it so funny!

Yellow jackets are evil, vindictive bees! I have been stung twice in my life by yellow jackets and both instances were a result of no provocation on my part. Heck, I've been stung by many different types of bees, in the country it's pretty unavoidable, but knock on wood, I've never been stung in the mouth!

Sorry that's all I can say right now. I'm still laughing in response to the chapter so I'll have to post any other thoughts later.

When I got to the bee part, I was wondering if you were going to get stung on the bump on the back of your head. Only Nebo would have such luck. Good thing my guess was wrong. Man what a bummer though. Other than the first 2 days, does anything else go right for you? I guess only time will tell.

Oh by the way, I was thinking of ordering a helmet, shoulder pads, elbow pads and knee pads for you. So you can have them on your next trip. I want to make sure I meet the famous TR writer and hopefully see him all intact. Where should I send them?

took the last 3 vikes ????? Noooooooooooo ........

I just had surgery on my ankle and after two weeks, I am on my second bottle (90 count). I need to be more economical with them now. I suspect this will be my last batch I can.

Splint comes off and cast goes on tomorrow for two months. Not fun.

So you could've stabbed yourself with a pencil or something in a weak bid to get more sympathy. "She's going to the parks without me. I want her here, being as miserable as I am!"

Well, geez. If you make it a habit of not seeing a doctor when you pass out and then smash your head on concrete, you'll be able to play an accordion duet with him.

True story (according to Rolling Stone Magazine) is that the organizers of the London Olympics apparently asked the Who's manager if Ketih Moon would play at the closing ceremonies. Supposedly, the manager responded that if they had a round table, some glasses and candles, they might be able to contact him directly.

Ever notice in the movies when a character says, “Go on without me.” The other characters always make a big fuss about it? It’s either, “No! You’re going to make it!” or “Okay, but we’ll never forget you!”. Just once, I’d like to see, “Oh, alright. See ya.”

Oh, wait, your family just did that, didn’t they?

Gee, I have no idea why I brought that up. :

I don’t know what’s more disturbing. The fact that you used Paris Hilton, Snooki, KateShouldNevermate (good one, I’m gonna steal it), Octomom and Honey Boo Boo. Or the fact that I know who you’re talking about.

Remember when we used to know people like Oppenheimer, Pauling and Planck?

Oy.

Thanks for the fun chapter, dude! :

Now in the US where the cost of ambulance ride moves the cost two decimals to the right, the time required to arrive moves two decimals to the left. With that much money on the line, they don't want to risk people hopping into a cab to get to the hospital.
So it's true? You really don't use dog sled teams to get someplace in a hurryup when you're behinder?

Did you enjoy the AoA pool/bar? It looks like a really well done resort.

Yeah, it's ok, but really no different from the other All Stars and Pop and CBR, WL, Poly outside bars.

For the record-Ponzi's Man Card is already under suspension. He admitted in a public forum to going to see the Katy Perry movie. It would have been revoked, but he took his daughter. Hence the suspension.

Well, even I didn't have the heart to make fun of him being at a katy movie, not when you are doing it for your kids, but don't let him know that.

I hope that you got to enjoy Epcot that evening. Even if you were in a Nebo stroller.
You know what? Even that turned out weird in an unexpected way with Todd and Jackson and Kim. That was when I learned how perfect Di and I are for each other at Disney, and however I think it will go with other family members, just throw it out the window.

Ok, I left all that out so I wouldn't have to fold it back up again, but I still like the "bat your eyes" part.

I saw all the missed calls too on my phone that night and was like, did I mess up our meeting day and not show up?????

Hope you are feeling better and boy if I only filled Z's RX. He didn't need them after his surgery so we didn't think to.
And her I was, all ready to walk to Kissimmee and meet you prematurely to let you be the hero for me,,,,,,,,but actually what you did give me later did help on the way/drive home.
But ALWAYS, even if you don't think you'll need them, get the prescriptions filled,,,, cuz as I keep finding out lately, you just. never. know.

Book him DianeO. No, Indiana Diana still works the best for when she was picked to be an extra in the stunt show.


Heh, my older brother comes up with lots of these. I think he gets them from the blue collar types at work.

Well, I certainly was blue collar, but I don't think it's limited to them. My younger son is pure white collar now, but one of his common phrases to use is when he gets up and on his way to the bathroom says it's time to take the Browns to the Super Bowl!

He frequently talks about what he's gonna do in the morning, as soon as he finishes his 3 S's.

S's?

Sh**, shower, and shave.

Yours was cleaner. Though mine included a shower

shucks

How about a Harvey Wallbanger?


Good chapter, Nebo. I sure hope your days got better.

-Bob
Yeah? If they get any better I'll be on life support in the
"Peek-a-boo-ICU.

Well Ponzi, I'm glad to see it's not just my jokes or lines that some people don't get, and I don't know why this one was tough either. I think your lines are getting the same treatment mine do by proxy, looking and joking too much like me.

Nice to keep some of those great old tv classic lines alive, no? I'm still trying to figure a way to work in,:
"I have perfect 20-20-20-20 vision." or,
"There must be some needy bald people out there somewhere!"
Oh, by the way, I just used an Andy Griffith line in my last chapter, that went un noticed, though it WAS obscure I guess.
When I talked about going to the doctor and finding out my blood pressure was something like 205 over 130 or so, and I kept waiting for the nurse/doctor's aid to yell out,
"Thar she blows!"

Remember Barney yelling that when they thought this old goat ate a bunch of dynamite and they were frantically looking for it, and a car backfired or something.

WL is the only on-property place I've ever stayed and the last time we went, 2 years ago, DH and I both had a drink there.
Ok. When I grew up I was told by teachers and parents and professors that there's no such thing as a stupid question, however, I never conformed to that thinking, meaning, BOY, THAT was a stupid question!

Ok Becca, I'm just teasin cuz I love ya. Actualy, the blame probably falls into my court since I'm the one who wrote it and apparently my description was murky, to say the least.

All the Disney resorts have bars, but I meant that the new one at the new Animation resort is located INSIDE the gated pool deck; meaning that even if you are just visiting the place for dinner or just checking it out, you can't get into the bar area on your own, the gates are operated by your room key card so you'll have to stand there and wait till someone else either goes in or out and then you get to feel really stupid like you are TRESPASSING!

How'd you like to be a bartender, nobody is there and a group of 6 walk over from Pop and want some fancy drinks after checking out the Nebo section but, no, the GATE stops them, and they are too honest to break the rules.
"No, no, we'll go back and get our 9 dollar and 50 cent drinks at the Petals Pool Bar at Pop."

Am I running off at the mouth a lot tonight or is it my keyboard? These call-outs are taking forever.

Shouold you be playing football in your condition?

Smidgy you are bingo "on the nose" for DH. Carrie, you are close which is saying something as we have only communicated in the TRs. Nebo, you are so very close, but in fairness to the ladies, you are spoken to me and from conversation probably have a better feel for my age. I am a bicentennial baby so I am 36. Great guesses you guys and congrats Nebo for being so very close!

Ok, hold it right there. My incredible deductive and intuitive reasoning most certainly had NO help from a telephone call from somebody that only speaks Carolina and I had to use a translator!
Closed captioning would have helped my more than the gigglesnorts I got over the phone!
you know I"m teasin, hopefully we'll be able to meet up down there and can toast to each other when you are no longer expecting a litter.

Psst. Dee Dee, want to know a secret? That last picture that Marita posted of Smidgy and I with our little kids? The one I have all this hair on my head?
Well, I still have it, I just chose to shave it off one day for a change and everybody in the neighborhood and friends said they liked it that way, so I just kept on doing it. From that point on everybody has called me bald and I just don't bother to correct them!

And I save on shampoo and conditioneer.
It's like my trip reports, sometimes I have a moustache, other times I don't.


DH and I have joked in reading the TR about using "Nebo" as middle name. It's been a TR baby so I can definitely see the humor in it!

Humor? How cool t be named after where Moses viewed the promised land, and then passed away.
Actually, as nicknames go, I really liked when I saw that Nebo was going to stick, they are a funny thing, you can't give yourself a nickname, it just doesn't work, it has to be given by somebody else and then immediately supported by others in the same group. Then, it has to transcend groups. When my folks started to call me nebo, I knew that it was permanent, cuz it's hard to change what you call somebody all your life and basically rename them when thy are 18 years old, whichis when "Nebo" was born.

Now, Smidgy? I believe her Dad called her that when she was just a "Smidgeon", so she was basically a Smidgy all her life.


. I mean I am a Nebo TR fan, but even you must admit that holding out to give birth in your honor is taking things just a little too far, don't you think?

I do? And I have to think?
But what a great way to show loyalty to a trip report!
Shows true devotion, loyalty, yes, even love, it will last with you for the rest of your lives, everybgody here will look at you with envy and respect in their eyes and after feeling their own shame set in, mumble to themselves something like,,, "Oh my God, what's her problemL?"

But in all kidding aside, it's going to be a 7 pound, 4 ounce girl born on the 22nd, and you'll name her not after me, but Ponzi's wife, Ruby.

Anybody following me here? Besides Ponzi, I know he'll come up with it.

Oh by the way, I was thinking of ordering a helmet, shoulder pads, elbow pads and knee pads for you. So you can have them on your next trip. I want to make sure I meet the famous TR writer and hopefully see him all intact. Where should I send them?
I'd really like that clear enclosed ball type thing that the squirrel or chipmunk or whatever it was had in Bolt.

I just had surgery on my ankle and after two weeks, I am on my second bottle (90 count). I need to be more economical with them now. I suspect this will be my last batch I can.

I'm very sorry to hear that. Not about the ankle, but the running out part. But no, if done properly you can normally get at least TWO more scripts out of this, especially if you are now under going the scary, traumatic change from a splint to a (gasp) CAST! And dont' forget the basics, like the morning of the appointment you try to go jogging down the bike path, the object here is to make sure it is as swollen as you can make it, I mean really, don't you want your doctor to see it at it's worst?

Oh, and,,,,,,
Who the heck are you?
Yea, I think I've seen your name before, but on other people's threads.
Well, welcome back.


Splint comes off and cast goes on tomorrow for two months. Not fun.

Hmm,, ok, I think the first 5 books of the bible are all written by Moses, from Genesis to Deuteronomy, and they are lumped together in what I think is called the Pentateuch, yes, Smidgy is chomping at the keyboard to correct me.
But one of my favorite Bible lines is from one of those books, and no, don't know exactly where, but it's when
Moses wrote SOMEWHERE in there:

"Now, Moses was a humble man."
Always cracked me up.
"Now, Mony was a humble woman."

What?

Ok, hold it right now.
I just broke off in the middle of reading your breakdown of my chapter, when I came across you mentioning a reference you made to what I said, "Follow my Leader. "

You stopped me dead in my tracks when you mentioned that it was your favorite book, which just can't be.
I read this book till the the pages fell out, it was written for ages 5th through 8th grade probably, but it was about I young boy going blind, which at the time for me, was a possible situation and so endeared me to it.
No, can't be it, and no, i don't want to google it, but it was just a small Schoolastic type book that I have never met somebody else I know that ever heard of it, much less read it. And, hmm, Ok,,, did I ever mention it in a previous report? Heck, I can even tell you the main character names,, the newly made blind kid was Jimmy Carter, and the rotten kid that threw the fire cracker was Bud Adams.
But should it be we are talking the same book, well, I think then it's time to be scared.

Oh.... My..... Gawd........

And Jimmy wanted to know when using a clock by touch how to tell the difference between am and pm and he was told "The same way everybody else does." or something like that.

And for everybody else's benefit, Leader was the name of his guide dog that he got.

It's also the reason why when Hawkeye goes blind (temporarily) it's one of my favorite episodes.


Yes. I'm a little scared now. Nobody has heard of that book.
