Sorry that I'm so far behind on Replies everyone! No, I don't have an update ready....I've been spending time copying the links to my Photobucket pictures to a Word document before I transition to the New Photobucket. Hopefully then I won't have too much trouble if they appear out of sequence. We'll see.

Maybe so, but it's a fair ruling....something the Rules Committee is known for.

It had already been up almost 10 minutes so I figured by the time I could check it and post there was no way I would be first........

My meeting ends on time I'm probably done with lunch and logged off by the time you posted and never see it nearly in time. Not my fault everyone else was SLOW!!!
I see your point. Pat had nearly 10 minutes available to her there, and there's no excuse for missing out!

Thanks for the info. It didn't really seem like a new addition, but I didn't remember seeing them.

What, another move? I'm sure you'll like it, being closer to family.

I didn't capture it on film, but the gorilla gave me the "I'm watching you" hand signal.

Several people said that, I didn't realize that it was that rare on the safari. Well, all right!

You'll just have to take many more safari rides. I mean, how long can that lion possibly stay half-concealed like that.

It's exhausting work being a male lion, apparently.

Sounds like a very successful safari.

It was cool to see the elephant in the water like that. A successful safari indeed.

It was a good ride, definitely a step up.

You feel my pain...thanks! It can be frustrating. Thank you, I know that a lot of the Safari pics on the DIS are so similar, but hey we try.

I like it. They don't have to go all "Jungle Cruise" on us, but it's fun.

All right, I'm looking forward to your report-back!

In that case, I'm glad that I included all of the shots I took. I was thinking about just picking out one. (But was too lazy to decide on just one, truth be told, and just said "Ah, leave 'em all in.")

I'm not sure when that adult-only WDW trip will occur...probaby years and years away, but I'll be sure to book that Trek.

Oh yes, we were so close to a meeting of the mimes. That would've been awesome. Someday sir, our paths will cross.

It'd be interesting to hear about the other option you're pursuing. We're always curious about what's going on in BiscuitWorld. Is the movie you made last year available on the web anywhere? I remember the trailer you sent.

You got great photos of the elephant squirting water! I've never seen one doing that when we've been on KS. Elephants are a favorite of mine too!

that awkward “Oookay, here we are…what do you want to do” scenario

OH NO!! THAT HIPPO IS ABOUT TO BE EATEN BY THE AFRICAN KILLER DUCKS!!
I'm sure someone already made that joke but I couldn't help myself...

Giraffes have such pretty eyelashes, your friend there in particular!

Ahhhh MEERKATS!! Haha Muskrat Love makes me think of Full House, I'm sure Danny sings it for some reason or another...
I cannot even look at your meerkat photos without squealing! His little face is just too adorable!

We don't have baby carrots like that in Australia and I really miss them! So if you're not going to appreciate them in all their stunted glory- send them my way!

We are pondering a Christmas trip. It's something I've always wanted to do.

Film is not online at present. Waiting on some final legal / financial clearings with SAG/AFTRA. (It was shot under a signatory agreement for festival distribution only.)

Thanks Rozz! A lot of people said that -- I didn’t realize that it was so rare.

Sorry, youre probably too young and too other-side-of-the-globe to get that reference.

Which one was Danny? And as an aside, can you believe that Alanis Morissette song is about Dave Coulier???

Ooo, that’d be great, Biscuit. So much to see -- all of the decorations at the parks and resorts. The Osborne Lights. I hope you can swing it.

Understandable. If it ever becomes available, please let me know. I’d love to see it.

Hi teekathepony! Thanks for following. I’m glad that I included all 4 of those elephant pictures, since so many people liked them. I was thinking of omitting one or two, but just got lazy and left them all in.

Sorry that I've been slow on the updates everyone! Some of my time was taken up by getting all of my Photobucket links captured before I made the switch to the new Photobucket. Other than that, work and home-life have been busy.
