Well took you long enough.

You know, you could've just looked at either my signature or Lady H's signature to get the link. We did post to your TR before, during and after your trip. The link was also posted back on Ponzi's TR by bankr63 and was in our signature then as well. Given your current state, I'll give you a pass this time.

Hey, I like that. Team Thumper. I may have to use that more during this TR. I knew you were good for something. Once I figure out what, I'll let you know.

First thing I said, was I'm not going to compare the two; and what does everybody ask for? I'll do my best.

I replied to Smidgy's email about meeting up with you two when we go to WDW in December. Gave her some options. If you make it out to DL next year, let us know when, maybe we can meet up with you there as well.

I use Office Word. I write the TR there first, then copy and paste on to here. Lady H has no idea what I post until it's posted. I'll ask her a question every now and then, then she gives me the "What and Why" stare.

"The Flat Earth Society" or the "It'l never work Society".
I vote for Team Thumper! Oh wait, I just claimed that name for me and Lady H. Never mind.

Between the warning shots between you and Ponzi, those may be the only pics I post of Lady H and myself. Thanks for the warning.

Oh. Well. That's different.

Please. Go right ahead.

Why thank you kind sir.

That's true. I was just thinking, "When are these two going?"

Sometime in the near future...At least that's what TMan tells me...

That's not a bad idea... I'm sure I could make something up about... oops.

Now I have to wonder if your trip to Hawaii was actually real...hmmmm

Hah! And you said to not be afraid!

We're innocent I tell ya!

Okay, got it. Rent a car just for weight training.

If you would have seen the car I got when I went on a business trip a few weeks ago...I wouldn't have thought twice at that statement. That's how tiny this car was. I felt like Andre the Giant in it. So TMan, heck, even I could have probably benched it.

I'm sorry. Still not quite clear on this. Is it a special occasion of some sort? Perhaps an anniversary of some kind?

Nothing special, just 5 years of marriage...

Nah. That would be dumb. How would you get it home?

oh that's easy...

Usually people forget things after the Sunny Ds.

Huh? What were we talking about?

Do you mean the 2008 fire or the 2011 fire?

I had to google both of those. I knew there was a fire at some point, but I couldn't tell you where, or when, or what happened. What can I say, I live under a rock


And I'm looking forward to your report on same. I have no idea what World of Color even is.

That makes two of us.


Both those sentences sound like DW.

I have no idea what your...


I've been forced to go to Rainforest Cafe more times then I care to recall...

But I've never heard of an Orange Sherbet Margarita. It sounds awesome, and I never knew.

That is very sad. Margarilla's are yummy, but very dangerous. You can't taste the alcohol until later when it hits you as you walk out the door.

I'm getting there! Sheesh. Such a nag.

I am not...Honey what have you been telling him?! Oh..wait...You mean about the...Nevermind.

Just around the corner now!
Today is going by so slow!

Your here, that's all that matters.

Uh oh...

Plus, I really do want to hear comparisons of the two resorts, we really are hoping to make it to D-Land next year, and I want to be armed and ready.

We will do our best to give you everything you need to go into battle. Or at least go into the park.

I can also tell already your report is going to be a hit, both of you are good at telling stories and you even seem to be able to spell correctly, or is Lady H proofreading for you?

Proof reading? I'm lucky if I get a glimpse of this before everyone else does. Just like the planning stages I just go along for the ride

How about, "The Disneyhood of the traveling keyboards"

By the way, the pictures you posted of yourself, Mike?
You arent' going to make a habit out of that, are you?
Just teasin', oh, life is good!
Your enjoying this aren't you?

I know there is a reason why you are eating at Rainforest Cafe but having just eaten at that particular one may I try and steer you in the direction of, say umm, oh I don't know, ummm, ANYWHERE else!!!

You may try, but I don't think it will work. Not to sound condescending, but I've tried RFC at different places and have never had a bad experience. We will usually give each place a try at least a couple of times before we decide if we really like it or not. We know there could be some off nights where the food just wasn't good, and other nights will be tis tasty. What some people may not like, we love and vice-versa.

I am willing to compromise though, tell me what you ordered and I'll be sure to steer clear. Although I've learned after 2 or 3 Margarilla's, almost all food starts to taste good after a while.

Thank you for your concern though.

It was a great day. They were all squirrely and goofy, just like I expected them to be. Cute as buttons!

Bless you for being a one-on-one aide. One of the most under-appreciated jobs in any school.
DH is very protective of me because our 2 Disney trip summer (DL & WDW), plus a side trip to Boston, ended with me coming home with pneumonia. I just can't do Disney any way but commando (even though I wore my undies, 'cause my mom told me going without could lead to pneumonia), and too much fun led to, well, pneumonia. Draw your own conclusions.
Ehy thank you! That really does mean alot comming from a teacher. :flower3I wish all teachers felt that way

Oh, you poor thing. Unable to post smileys? You must be having wicked bad withdrawal symptoms. Allow me.

Thank you. That is exactly the smiley I needed last night. Long live the king!

and, Yup, this was pretty much me without the smiley's... I love the Disboards app on my phone, because it's easy to access, but no access to smileys is just wrong!!!
