Ok,,,not bad. At least you didn't say that since you're from Canada that they have indoor plumbing.

Okay, I was kidding... but ask Ruby some day about how happy she was when I took the kids to MK while she stayed at the resort and did laundry and sat by the pool all day.

yeah,,, I've recently been there,,, grr.

That's how I feel. I've had to change though. Ruby is not happy when we get back from vacation and she needs a vacation to recover.

nah,,, I like our way better,,, you can always catch up on sleep later,,, GO FOR IT! REACH FOR ALL THE GUSTO YOU CAN,,, FROM THE LAND OF SKY BLUE WATERS,,,,

Isn't that one of the best ever tags for a product? Who doesn't know snap, crackle, pop? Didn't you want to try it for the first time as a kid, just to hear it?

Mom:"Here's the Rice Krispies you wanted."
Me:"Gee! Thanks!" <pours milk>
Bowl:"Snap! Crackle! Pop!"
Me:<Greedily and excitedly stuffs heaping spoon into pie hole all the while thinking of hundreds of microscopic Snaps, Crackles and Pops being crushed by teeth>
Mom:"So? How is it?"
Me:"Umm.... Pass the sugar, please?"

This is gonna hurt me,,, but well done.



Sorry Mike. Sounds like you've been replaced.

Did yiou catch the key word in her sentance? Somtthing about "aroma"?





I've been reading to many of Nebo's TRs. I was so sure you were going to go on to tell us all about this horrible eye infection (complete with horrible, stomach churning pictures).

Does anybod;y else take that as a "double dog dare?"

Perhaps. But Bunnyboy is right on this one. To quote R.A. Heinlein, "All women are beautiful, some are more beautiful then others."



You might need to talk to your publicist Ponzi,,, while the quote may be correct,,, the timing may need some work.



I hear ya. People who live near amazing views get used to it and forget just how amazing it really is.

Yes,,, that would be us here in the midwest,,,,, the sweeping corn fields,,, the grain,,, the burnt grass,,, ah,,, splendor,,,the speed bump now on rt. 57 they call nebo's blow out point,,,,yeah,,, that's all special,,, and we don't take it for granted.

Although, in all fairness,,, I have sttod in my slider window the last three days watching these three deer walk past our door, lookinig for food. Something about a deer 10 feet away that still get's your attention.








Inner goddess?

uh oh

I'll buy that.

Whew! Man, you scare me sometimes.

And since you didn't mention it, I'm going to assume he didn't flinch or scream.

You couldn't leave it alone?

See? Beautiful.

Yep, gonna give me a heart attack.

I too noticed the ketchup right away. But coming from up north. We're amazed when we go to a McDonalds (or wherever) and they don't have vinegar for the fries.

Excuse me, what?
Vinegar?
VINEGAR?
FOR FRENCH FRIES?

WHAT,, DID THE FORMALDEHYDE GO BAD?

Oh brother.

No wonder nobody goes to the Expos games anymore.



A gift shop? At the end of a ride? What a novel idea! Perhaps this will be used at other places some day.

Yes,,, they are putting one in at my bank now.

Then again, if you do it again and he doesn't give you a jump from the AED, you will pass.

Ok,, nudder clever line,,,


That is such a cool shot. Was that ray really that black? Or is it just the way the picture came out?

I wondered that too,,, did you see the initials ... S... I... carved in it's side?
I know,,, bad taste, sorry.


Sorry, I don't watch that show so I can't relate... but great chapter Lady H!
Yeah,, it was a great chpater,,,, you did a great job too breaking it down,,, that's why I went here to get all of you. THanks Heather.

Nope. I stand by what I said. There's no such thing as a woman who isn't beautiful. Yes there are some women who are more beautiful in some ways then others. But in my eyes...

About a year or two ago, I was driving home from work and there's a section where I frequently see deer. As I approached this section, I saw a statue of a magnificient 10 (? I'm guessing... but it was a lot) point buck. But it was posed in such a cliche/corny way that I was disapointed. I mean, "Standing tall, head held regally high. Hind quarters solidly on the ground while the forelegs were beginning to climb the embankment."

I thought to myself, "If you're going to put up a deer statue. Make it more realistic. Not this stylized, ridiculously fairytale pose."


Then the nickel dropped.

There isn't any deer statue there.

Better watch out or I'll let Ruby read this. Her idea of FF dining is to get a bowl and fill it half full of vinegar then add a few fries to it.


And she's not alone up here.

ooooh. Too soon? I always figured some critter would get him eventually, but a ray? Nope.

I agree. My dad used to only eat them rolled, so that's the way we would eat them at home when i was younger. As i got older, the casserole way was just easier, plus that's the way T-Man makes them, and anytime I can get him to cook, I'm happy

Welcome! And Thank you! I am working on a new chapter. Real life keeps getting in the way of me playing Hopefully I will have one up in the near future.

So we usually take some along with us to use on vacation. Like our recent trip to WDW. We took both red and green chili along. Since we were staying at our timeshare the first portion of our trip, and had a kitchen, I made casserole style enchiladas with the red. So we can get our "chili fix" so to speak.

And someone mentioned that people have recently started putting fritos in their chili. We've been doing that for years. Around here, we call it a frito pie. Why they call it a pie is beyond me, but that's been the term used for years.
Funny, but true story. A few years back, T-Man, DSIL and I were in Las Vegas, which is usually an annual trip since we have family there. One night, we decided to hit up The Cheesecake Factory for a late dinner. After ordering drinks and trying to decide on our entree's, the waiter comes back around. T-Man had been going back and forth on the green chili cheeseburger, and asked the waiter if he knew what kind of chili they used. Right away, the waiter looks at T-Man and tells him, "I'm not too sure, and I know how you folks from New Mexico are about your chili, so let me go check on that and I'll be right back."

We sort of looked at each other trying to figure out how in the world he knew we were from New Mexico, until we remembered that DSIL had been carded when she ordered her drink. Duh.

The waiter comes back and with a sincere, almost sad look, he tells T-Man that the chili is from El Paso, or something like that, and right away T-man shakes his head. The waiter nods in agreement, pretty much already knowing T-Man's response and checks with the rest of us to order to let T-Man choose another entree.

It's times like those that remind us how picky we New Mexican's are about our chili.

The recipes back home in Oregon, which in our town was about 25% Latino, seemed to be ALOT like the recipes in Puerto Vallarta. I am not so engrained that I need to bring my own chilis though!
Yeah, depending on the length of travel, we will add chili to our check list of things to pack. Usually it's only when we are going for really long periods of time, or to somewhere we know just won't have what we want. This last time, I laughed. Since we changed hotels midway through our trip, we packed our green chili into small baggies, and during our lunch at T-Rex, T-Man pulls out a baggie of green chili from his shorts pocket and adds it to his burger. We kept glancing around to make sure no one saw us.

I guess I never realized all the similar names before. Of course most of the time I'm too busy praying and repeating my mantra to notice anything else. But yes...both Manta coasters are good. The one in FL is much more intense, being on your stomach most of the ride, with loops and what not. The one in CA, is my kind of coaster. Just a lap bar, but it has some speed to it.

I have not tried french dressing, but I have tried BBQ sauce. Usually if i have chicken nuggets or chicken tenders from some place, and they come with fries, I will use BBQ sauce instead of ketchup. Back in the day when Hardee's was around, I used to love their hash rounds with the Hardee's sauce or BBQ sauce.

ok...I guess that did sound a little off. But seriously, a vacation is supposed to be a relaxing time, away from work, yet it takes more work to get through your vacation and at the end of it all, you have to go back to work to relax. That's just not right!!!!

This time around I begged T-Man to slow down a bit and give us some time to chill. His thoughts were, we will have to do some laundry at some point, so that day can be a relaxation day.

See above. I don't want to have to go to work to recoup from a vacation.

I think that pretty much sums up the experience of anyone trying Rice Krispies for the first time. I think because they advertise it so well, you don't realize until you've tried it that it's not a sweetened cereal like some of the other popular ones, i.e., Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Honeycomb, Golden Grahams, etc.

I think you've used that quote before...Although I have to say I appreciate it just as much now as i did before. But there is a big difference between me without any make-up at all, as opposed to me with my make-up sort of melted off after a day in the sun. Even then I still have some sort of cover.

I figured it was only because he was paying more attention to making sure I wasn't carrying any explosives, than actually looking at my face. Plus security/cops, they are used to seeing crazy things. It's the other people in the park I was worried about.

Never thought about that. Of course, at the same time, the people who were ushering us into the ride cars, didn't say anything about our packs either when we got on the first time.

He was a little more in the shade so that might have a little to do with how dark he is, but from what i remember, he wasn't much lighter in the sun, so What you see is what you get.

Yeah, I don't know what it's like here either. I just know that T-Man has to deal with it often for work, since he has to set up the phones for those traveling out of the country.

I've never acquired a taste for them either. My mom likes them, and depending on my mood, i can have maybe one or two, but that's about it.

Sounds a lot like me when I was younger. It took me a long time to get a taste for them battered and fried. I think people at places like sonic or any restaurant that I order a burger and rings at, probably laugh at me, because I order my burger without onions, then a side of onion rings.

Ok. Work is getting in the way again, but I have to post about the Quick Queue real quick. Think Lady H might have the QQ's mixed up. We got QQ in SW-Orlando, but we didn't get them at SW-SD. We tried but they weren't selling them for the day.

As we first got into the park, we saw a little kiosk where they sell the QQ and ADDP. These are the only 2 things sold here. We walked up to the kiosk and asked if we could purchase both. The cashier said she wasn't able to bring up the QQ tickets for some reason. Her computer wasn't letting her and she referred us to the Guest Services building. We paid her for the ADDP, got our bracelets for that and then went over to the GS. When we walked into GS, it was empty. No one behind the counter. For a minute I was beginning to wonder if someone gave some bad customer service and became Shamu's (or possibly the sharks) next meal. Eventually someone came out from the office in the back, wiping her hands. Yup, someone definitely became breakfast.

Anyways, we asked her if we could purchase some of the QQ tix for the day. She told us they weren't being offered during the week at this time. Only weekends. Better for us, saves us $60 and they lose out on $60. We hit Manta right after breakfast and the wait time was only 5 minutes. So to us, it was money well saved.

T-Man had been going back and forth on the green chili cheeseburger, and asked the waiter if he knew what kind of chili they used. Right away, the waiter looks at T-Man and tells him, "I'm not too sure, and I know how you folks from New Mexico are about your chili, so let me go check on that and I'll be right back."


Me thinks thou are beginning to protest too much concerning chili.

We sort of looked at each other trying to figure out how in the world he knew we were from New Mexico, until we remembered that DSIL had been carded when she ordered her drink. Duh.



It's times like those that remind us how picky we New Mexican's are about our chili.

But Old Mexicans dont care?






Yeah, depending on the length of travel, we will add chili to our check list of things to pack.

I knew we'd be back on the chili in a sentance or two.

Usually it's only when we are going for really long periods of time,

Well,,, yeah,,, see above,,,,LEAVE THE CHILI AT HOME!
geesh



or to somewhere we know just won't have what we want.

You mean,, like cheeeelllll,,,, chiiiiilll,,,nope ,,I can't say it.
This last time, I laughed. Since we changed hotels midway through our trip, we packed our green chili into small baggies,

Sigh,,,, ok,,, green chili,,,, baggies,,,in luggage,,,, and you wonder why you have to keep going.....

and during our lunch at T-Rex, T-Man pulls out a baggie of green chili from his shorts pocket and adds it to his burger. We kept glancing around to make sure no one saw us.

Ach mein Gott! How many bad/good lines are sitting there? How can you do this to me?

Yeah yeah yeah...I'll let it slide this time since I know all the issues you've been dealing with (By the way, I hope you are feeling better!). But don't let it happen again Mr. Getting your teeth pulled just to have an excuse not to come over here and read will get you no where...and you only have so many teeth before you have to come up with another excuse.


geez,,, thanks for the reminder.





I guess I never realized all the similar names before. Of course most of the time I'm too busy praying and repeating my mantra to notice anything else. But yes...both Manta coasters are good. The one in FL is much more intense, being on your stomach most of the ride, with loops and what not. The one in CA, is my kind of coaster. Just a lap bar, but it has some speed to it.

Yeah,,, dats what I vant.



Good ol' S & P...It was there too. I think it was hiding under the hot sauce. Of course I use salt on my watermelon...Oh...I think i just went down a notch on the normalcy meter didn't I?

Salt? on watermelon?
Oh no,,, you underestimated yourself;
You went down 2 notches,,,,,,,,geesh.








I never knew what i was missing with the mayo until we were at DCA and T-Man used it on his chili dog. I figured what the heck and gave it a try and really liked it. I have not tried sour cream.

I'm not sure why,,, but sour cream is like Mayo times ten on the hit paraded,,,, even though Mayo has more taste, no, doesn't make sense,,,,but there you have it,,,
hot dog,,, relish,, mustard,,,, sour cream,,, a bit of raw onions,,,pooppy seed bun.... that's livin'.
poppy.
not poopy.

and NO< NOT> NADA> Chili.



I have not tried french dressing, but I have tried BBQ sauce. Usually if i have chicken nuggets or chicken tenders from some place, and they come with fries, I will use BBQ sauce instead of ketchup. Back in the day when Hardee's was around, I used to love their hash rounds with the Hardee's sauce or BBQ sauce.
We lived around the corner from a Hardee's.
Then it closed six months later.
We were morose.

Ok,,, ok,,, I was morose,, I think Smidgy was maroon.

On a trip to Reno a few years ago for an FOE grand convention, we had the honor of making Green Chili Dip for the 4 corners hospitality room. So naturally we took some chili in our luggage, frozen rock solid, figuring it would thaw out by the time we got there and were ready to use it. When we opened our luggage, we found a note from the airline, saying they had inspected that area of our suitcase. Funny thing is, we knew we would be inspected, so we left it on the outer pocket. i'm just glad they didn't confiscate it.

Yeah yeah yeah...back on the chili boat...I know...

I loved Hardee's. We had one just about a block away from my junior high school. Depending on how the week had gone, our first period teacher would often take us for breakfast on Fridays as a treat. Usually without letting anyone know he was taking us on a field trip, which would infuriate the principal but he would still do it. It also used to be our escape from High School when i was a freshman. If we didn't feel like going to class, we would go to Hardee's instead. a couple years later it shut down, and was turned into a Carl's Jr. Not the same...

Um...Hmmm...I know i've been battling a migraine for the past couple of days, and i'm still not completely over it...plus i do not want to argue in front of the kids...but I remember it differently, so I'll agree to disagree for now until my head feels better and I can think straight. More than likely you are right...and even if your wrong, you will be right...but for my own sanity's sake I'll hold onto my righteousness until the very last minute.

After the Super Bowl, the SF bay area was treated to an ad offering free chocolate pudding cups as a consolation prize for 49er fans. As I said to DH, nothing says number 2 like a cup of chocolate pudding.
OK. Now scoot over and leave some room for me in the dungeon of public opinion.

Ok. I've been invading Nebo's TR to post pictures of our recent WDW/Uni/SW trip; when I have a perfectly capable TR here that I can use to post pics on. I know Nebo don't mind, but I don't want it to seem like I'm taking over his TR either. Especially with Mony posting her live updates and me posting pics about WWoHP. He's the expert after all and I don't feel its right to write about our experiences on his TR. I could very easily start another TR at our trip at WDW if I wanted to. More like if I had the time. We haven't even finished this one, and this vacation was only a week. Can you imagine us telling you about a 2 week vacation. It would take about 2 years for us to get through it.

Of course, when we talked at WDW, he said he's hoping to pass the torch. This might be his sneaky way of getting us to take over. Only problem is, we don't travel there as often as him and Smidgy do. Nice try Nebo.

As I mentioned on Nebo's TR, here's a link to all of the WWoHP pics Lady H and I took.

I'll post more links later as I get them uploaded onto Flickr.

Mike, I like how Nebo's trippie has more than one story going. It makes it funner.

True, it does make it fun. It still doesn't make it right though. A person starts a TR to tell about their trip. Not for others to tell about their trips and completely take over. Then the person who's originally trying to tell about their trip may never get the chance to finish. It's mostly out of respect for the person trying to tell their story that you should try to keep things short and sweet. Knowing Nebo the way all of us do, we know he don't mind; but it's still his TR and we shouldn't take over knowing we could very easily start our own thread to tell our stories. Plus if we keep posting on his TR, he may never finish telling us about his most recent trip. He'll let us ramble on.

I hadn't thought of that. Maybe we should get his mailing address and send him some chocolates and booze.

Yeah there's nothing worse then somebody who posts more than the person who actually is writing the TR....

Yeah that should work. He'll be sitting on the couch in a chocolate fueled stupor while nursing a raging hangover...


Wait.

Send me some to, 'kay?
