Did you call Becky? LOL


And did you see the one date...10/20/11. It's now the past!

On the call Becky part. That bulletin board is on the right side next to the stove.

I think I zoomed in on the news clipping and it was for Windows. Like the original

Either one might be correct
I think I was finally on the other side (left) from where I usually ride with a FP. So I was looking for where the camera was. CLEARLY I didn't know.

Love all the TL pics, especially the pin board in CoP! How cool! I've never noticed it before so of course now I'll have to check it out next time.

Knowing I stoped for pictures on the way tot he car had me thinking I was slacking again. I think I was surprise too when I saw the time stamp of 9:15.

Still later than my 8:20 usual.

CoP last scene and all the way to the right. With the zoom I have it kept me entertained while GRandma was fighting aliens.

Not too shabby!!!!

That express was full of flag carrying, cheering, standing everywhere teenagers.

My "finger" was me looking for the camera. Clearly I had no idea.
I think I was on the left track where I usually ride on the right side and I KNOW where that camera is.

We need to get Lou M. to find out the story on that.
Now that I have done that attraction a few times and there has been no update I look for other things to entertain me. I was looking for Hidden or not so hidden Mickeys and found the bulletin board.

I would guess imagineers children or grandchildren for the pictures.
I think it is so neat that try to find a way to have imagineers pictures or their children in the attractions.

I would say you FP times are pretty reasonable!
I believe the board is next to the oven. Super zoom helped me out, tha's for sure.

I can usually bounce from Buzz to SM and back in Tl.

Welcome back. I know the holidays are crazy. I have been nuts since Sept. It might have something to do with me constantly going back to the World though.

I leave in a few days!!!! Little nervous little excited. Just want to finish and still be able to walk and enjoy the parks for a few days.

Just a different way of touring, that is for sure. Lots of breaks and pool time.

Send the boys to a ride or Dinoland and explore the tree. I think I still need to find another trail. Maybe later this week?

Will try to do better in keeping up. Things have slowed down here so I should be able.
DL was great. Back to commando and trying to see everything. I am thinking I may do a photo update instead a day by day. Maybe. I do have a couple of funny stories though.

The trip from the airport was interesting.

.

SM and TT both do that and it is annoying. Since you really can't see the icture I feel it actually reduces the possibility of me buying it ( which is usually close to zero anyway )


Once that bulletin board caught my eye I was all over it. So many things
that the audience may never see but my handy dandy zoom captures is why I go back. Always something new to see.

It is summertime after all....



Use this FP



Then this one



Um my gun didn’t work????



Apparently my crappy score got me put in jail



Next up a bathroom break



HoP



And then here…..




Any guess as to where that was???










Tom Sawyer Island. Some walkin around and some sittin. Apparently I decided it was getting too hot.

Some shopping… or at least looking



And then out.






Now if you were paying attention you might say “ Wait minute! Don’t go to the bus you brought the car you numbskull.”




I was aware of that but also knew I would end up at MK that night…. At least that was the plan. I had a great spot parking wise so why not take the bus back and then retrieve the car that night.





A great plan in theory right????

Pat, loved that update...very to the point.

Uh oh...that doesn't sound good about the car being left at MK and you taking a bus to BC and then coming back. Why do I have a feeling this isn't going to go quite that way?

That is all I had left. I need to write more from that point but another trip looming, I fugured I would get part up and well not much else other than hit that , that, that , got hot and left.

See HORRIBLE????

I tell ya leaving the car and taking the bus back seemed like a good idea at the time. I guess we will see.

The Blue Mickey head dress was found in EPCOT at the American Adventure.
An early birthday present for me!!! It is really comfy and dresses this summer made it at least "feel" cool.

I would guess the same, but the Disney geek in me wants to know who, what, when, where, why... now that you have opened this can of worms with your handy dandy zoom lens!

Seems like it, yet I am sensing that there is a story here....

I can't believe that you left the "Pat, call Becky" note alone. I thought, "here's the setup" then....nothing. I like the Far Side cartoon though! I wish there were more in our future, but alas, I think they're done.

Uh oh, in reference to how you ended the last chapter, leaving the car in the MK parking lot -- I think a Star Wars quote (said many times) sums it up best: "I've got a bad feeling about this".

You certainly covered a lot of ground, as usual. I'm glad you took a TSI break...not too many people do, and it's a great spot.

But now you've got me in suspense over the parking thing...

Ruh roh! My guesses are that you decided you didn't want to go back to MK, or that you did but forgot that your car was there after and got back on the bus to BC since that's how you got there in the evening. HORRIBLE!!


I want you to know that I did not scroll down, but guessed Tom Sawyer Island!!

Good luck with the half! I wish I was going back already! Not to run of course, just to go back!
