No, I think I used up all of my luck right there.

Yep, I won a chance to possibly, potentially, maybe see a turtle.

Yeah, I didn't want to rub anyone's face in it....I know I wasn't enjoying seeing other people win the first few that were pulled.

I'm sure he checked. If so, he was correct....she stayed back at the suite.

I know they have them at Vero and Hilton Head. I'm not sure about the other non-WDW locations.

I didn't think I was either, but Judy thought I was so it must have had some kind of weird placebo-effect.

Trying to get caught up and then finish the summer trip and then DL. I will get to it but not sure when.
Looking forward to reading about this latest trip of yours.

Thanks! It's kind of like those "up close and personal" segments during the Olympics so that you root for one of the competitors.

They did a better job conveying my emotions than I could have done with words. And I couldn't pick just one.

Connie! I saw that and wondered if you would....but you posted on the PTR I think, so I know that you're a loyal reader.

Hmmm, my experience was totally different....it was Mr. Acklin, 4th period.

It was a much better beach day.

Sure, send 'em over. I put a plug on the Vero thread for both of our TRs, by the way.

Later in the week I'll be doing the hula and singing the song that Baby's sister sang.

Thanks, I was racking my brain trying to remember some of the info. we learned. At the time, I was like "oh, I'll remember this...."

Thanks for rooting for me -- we have another chance!

Yikes! I have fallen behind on every TR I am following on here!

Wow - those are some elaborate necklaces! Maybe your kids should have just taught this class! Seriously though - it looks like a really fun activity.

So you’ve now managed to work in both George Costanza and Charlie Chaplin. Color me impressed!

The weather may not have been great, but the pictures of your time on the beach are really nice - even being cell phone pics.

The turtle information is so interesting. I would love to do a vacation like this just to learn about and see the turtles. Very cool! It must have been so disappointing not to see any turtles that first night, but I still think it is such a neat thing to be able to do.

Great pics of the resort - it really is beautiful.

Phew! The suspense nearly did me in! So glad that your family hit the lottery.

Yeah, not the best weather for being in the water, but still good for picture-taking.

We did learn a lot, and we're still working on finding those elusive turtles!
