Nebo, is that because you can only see better out of one eye than the other?

Orange kitty don't drink? Did you not learn from Nebo that you need to at least drink water. Sure you may not drink alcoholic beverages much, but I'm sure you drink something.

Yeah. People we know that live in the area said it was exceptionally hot that time of year. We knew it was going to be hot, we weren't expecting it to be that hot though.

It's really a fabulous show. I think it's become one of my favorite night time shows that Disney has to offer. I uploaded the pictures last night. I'm also trying (trying being the keyword) to put together a little video as well. Pictures can't really do it justice, but we did get some pretty good pictures.

Oh sure, take her side. And you want me to post pictures of WoC? With everyone taking her side, I may have to think twice about this.

Ok. I'll post WoC pictures. She really does look cute. Still cuter with long hair if I haven't mentioned that already.

Since we didn't drive, we didn't take the big bottle; or even little bottles. We figured since we were right across the street from a liquor store, we could just buy some there. Aren't you at least proud of us that we went to get little bottles?

sigh..nebo, they have SO much to learn.
You would be proud of us. After we met up with you and Nebo, we took your advice about the Pineapple/Vanilla Swirl Dole Whip. We went to a liquor store that night and bought some rum. It made them so much better. So we're quickly learning. And we didn't even go to a restroom to mix them up. Instead we went to our favorite DSA between Tomorrowland and Fantasyland.

Hopefully by the time you go, some of the new will have settled down and the crowds won't be as bad. If Nebo and Smidgy decide to go, and if we can manage to meet up with them; Lady H and I have thought about maybe driving out there. Make a pit stop at the Grand Canyon on our way there and back.

Our trip isn't over yet. Well at least not in this TR. You would think it would be by now. After 4 months of writing, we're about half way through. Nebo will probably finish up his TR before we finish this one.

We still had some chances to eat at GW though. We have a PF Changs and a CPK close to us here that we can always go eat at. What we don't have is a Cheesecake Factory. Only time will tell if we made it back to GW.

Is this the same as "it's not the fall that will kill you, but the landing?" But in your case it would be "its not the drive that will kill me, but the falling asleep behind the wheel plowing into the semi truck that will." You know you could always stop at a hotel for the night and sleep. Just a thought.
Sleep? Sleep? I've heard of it, but don't recall what all the fuss is about.

Don't tell him! Make him look it up like I had to!

One stretch is on a highway that is used to bypass the city.
Every time I get on that stretch of road... and I mean every single freaking time... I always think to myself, "If instead of turning right at the intersection I go one more mile to the next intersection and turn left... in thirty hours I could be in Disney World."


For years and years and years, I have lived 35 miles from work, which meant highway driving. But it was the very next exit past my work exit, that took me to the Tri State South,,,,and Disney, and once I found Disney, there wasn't a day on the way to work I didn't thinkk about ,,'C'mon, one more exit, GO FOR IT!"

You doubt me? Let me tell you what I used to do about six times a year, ready?

I would wake up at 7am to get to work by 8. I would work from 8 to 4pm. Still with me? Then I'd come home, cook and eat dinner, watch some TV or read or play some video games... then go to work and work from midnight to 8am (been up for 25 hours straight by now). Still with me? Here's where it gets good. I get home shortly after 8am, grab some suitcases, hop back in the car with Ruby and then drive... no let me clarify... Ruby would sit in the passenger seat and I would drive to Winnipeg. No big deal? Well, it was a 12 hour drive. So by the time I finally got to bed, I usually would've been up for 39 - 40 hours straight.

So do you really think I wouldn't make that left turn and drive for 30 hours... to get to Disney????

There's just one problem... THE DRIVE BACK!!!
I did something similar, worked multiple jobs without sleeping. I fondly now refer to that time period as my "First Retinal Detatchment!" or, "The day my eye threw up". I was 20!
So,,,,,,,, DON"T DO THAT NO MORE! yes, bad grammar get's your attention.

I have tried to stay on the sideline on the hair issue, for good reason, but,,, with the fear of bodily harm hovering over me,,,, I like the long hair a "bit" better.

I had no idea... so I looked him up. He did die a few years ago (2009), but he wasn't German. Much to my surprise Joseph Wiseman (aka Dr. No) was born in Montreal, Canada! Apparently though, he grew up in New York.

is that the DSA by the Indy speedway? or do you mean the one on the right side of the castle (if you are looking at the castle). we always liked the DSA under the wedway to the right of the restrooms (left of COP) . good place to "fuel up" . if too many nosy people are around, you could duck in the restroom.

but no more meeting up at the dsa for us.. sigh..
actually I am more happy than nebo about quitting. I told him I could tell he is thinking about starting up again. I told him we can afford one only Disney or smoking.. not both.
jan 35 will be 2 years!!!

Do not start smoking again!!!!

Not only is the choice between smoking or Disney... it's about smoking for a few years or going to Disney for many, many years.

Yes, the one by the speedway. Keep walking past Space Mountain gift shop and you get to it. Very few people walk this way. They probably don't know you can walk that way. We like to sit here and watch the trains go by.

Nebo picked the spot. We were happy to meet you any place. Like at DHS that morning. I'm pretty sure that wasn't a DSA.

My vote is for Disney. Or course wasn't the main reason so he can keep what little sight he has left?

Is there some new calendar I'm not aware of? Is this the mayan calendar you're referring to? The one that said the world would end on Dec. 21st? Last time I checked, there were still only 31 days in January.

Anyways, congratulations for making it to 2 years.

Congrats Smidgy and Nebo. When I quit smoking, my sister and I took a class together, and they showed a timeline of how the body heals after you quit. Two years makes a huge difference. Don't give in to the urges and lose all that progress. BTW, that sister is 6 years older than I am, and went back to smoking about 6 months after we quit. When people meet us, some ask if she is my mom. Just sayin'.

sheesh! one little typo!!!! tee hee!

ya thumper man, I know nebo picked the spot.. we figured it would be a good meeting area cause there's a bar!!!

I meant HE AND I meeting up after "mixing up" our drinks.

and, no one misunderstand.. I am NOT going back to smoking, EVER!! I worry about nebo though...yes, Mike, his sight was the main reason. but now that his sight isn't improving, he keeps letting that little devil poke into his brain and say "might as well smoke...." there are a LOT of bad things smoking causes. like our oldest son's baseball coach just died of lung cancer at age 66, with 3 kids and about 6 grandkids.

NOT TO MENTION.. !!! we can'
t afford the price of cigarettes AND the price of disney!! so there!

hhmm, I'll make Nebo a deal, if he can make it until Jan 35 without a smoke, I'll let him have one.....
