All I can think of is a pole dancer
Is there a pill for this condition or do I just keep up the cycle of going to Disney

Before my DW got her promotion we talked of packing up and moving down to WDW and working for the Mouse-in-charge. I think someday we will end up there working for the mouse and haveing a Disney life. I have met an lot of great peolpe who work there and a few my age who just up and quit and moved to FL.

That's my goal. Once my girls are out of the house, I want to move to WDW and work for the mouse. Not sure what I'm qualified to do at a theme park, but I'm darn sure willing to give it a try.

Hey, now. There's a good number of us in WI. Granted, I'm not right now, but I visit on occasion...

That is my plan. I have 10-12 more years until I can retire and move to WDW, unless lottery winnings prevail.

Well they still don't have our phone and internet fixed here at work, so I'm stuck using the phone.

The H&V cancellation is ridiculous. I can't believe they didn't have a better way to handle the situation. You definitely should complain and I'm glad three mgr at Fairfax faire was helpful.

I've already chimed in about the skunk at the other place.

Love the Doofenschmirtz shirt.

I hope CJ and the pirate princess have a good trip to seton hall.

Thanks. I will definitely do something. Right now, just enjoying myself.

We had a great time at Biergarten last night. The beer was flowing and the kids were dancing. Got out just in time to see illuminations. A great Disney day!

The trip started out shaky,then Brian got here and restored order to the Disney universe.

I see nothing but bad things coming from this.

Matt
Paint? No. I told DW I'll paint when the cat is dead, because then we can replace the carpet with cat hair and paint stains at same time.

So DW emailed me a house listing last night and know we are looking at a new house farther west of Milwaukee, I didnt think we would be doing this for a few more years. oh well I hope it looks as nice as it sounds.
Wine celler? I know who to.visit if I ever get that way.

It's zipping by now and stalled again. I'm not liking my draft, but 9th is a bad spot to get. What little strategy I had going into it is now gone.

Another Monday. Just a quick skim of the past few posts.

Enjoy the World you Dads that are down there.

Safe travels to those travelling. Strong allergy season forecasted for CJ as he drops off the Pirate Princess Pirate.

Working for the Mouse. Appealing, but unfortunately my skill set would have me emptying trash and SWMBO and the kids like to eat more than once a day. If it was just me I would be glad to just empty trash, but the reason I get out of bed in the morning and deal with all this is I'm a Dad with responsibilities. The next 5 weeks are going to be chaos as we try to keep up with this years research, get some of next years research in the ground, analyze data, write reports and get ready to host the College's Field Day, Youth Day, and 2 days of pre-K-1st grade students in for a farm day. All while fighting the weather.

First day of homeschooling for the offspring. We will see how it goes. As Principal and Superintendent of the school I expect to have more issues with the staff than with the students.

Saw that one too! Thought about it, but I decided I needed the Dole Whip shirt more.

Good luck, CJ. We're all counting on you.

PM me if you need a stop in the Delaware area along the way!

Sorry about your H&V situation. That sounded like a beverly. I'm glad there was at least one caring CM to help out.
