I was thinking you didn't have time for a stop at South of the Border but just then my phone buzzed with the picture on FB from SoB.

Mary Ellen, I hope you have a safe trip home with no delays!!! I always hate getting home so late at night. It makes that "trip coming to an end" feeling even worse!!!

Don't be tempted by all those South of the Border billboards enticing you in along the way to delay you even further!!!

Well, I finally caught up with this TR! Your trip looks like so much fun, so many great things you did & ate. It was so nice of the man to offer you a sip of his beer to taste.

I like the update on the cats, I have a weakness for all cats. We no longer have a cat as ours passed away at the age of 16 two years ago. He was the love of our lives & so handsome.

Oh no... hope all is well but I agree... hospital + vacation = no bueno! But welcome home MK.

Cynthia: I agree, sundresses are so perfect for dinner - at least during warmer weather. If I'd of had any less layers on during the last few days of our Feb/March trip I would have been an ice pop.

What's going on with the DHS hat??? Don't tell me they are thinking of removing that icon?? How dare them!

Cynthia, every time you and Mary Ellen update, I'm amazed at how much ground ya'll cover in a day's time. I've read rumors about the hat coming down but, like you, I'll believe it when I see it.

Mary Ellen, not liking your post about seeing the HHI hospital. Hopefully, it wasn't anything serious.

So I'm home and back at work and busy today, but I will get to replies tonight and an update in the next couple days. Sorry that I am woefully behind on everyone's TRs, but I will catch up there too when I can. We decided we just "had" to see Charleston yesterday, so we went there for an early lunch. That being said, we did not get home until 11pm.

It was a great trip, with the hospital exception, but everyone is fine now. I just have one heck of a story to tell.

Later all.

Or wait - I mean - See Y'all!

Cynthia, great photopass pictures of you in France.

You two really got a lot accomplished on that last full-day. Fun and relaxation too. Perfect!

Honestly I have no idea why people don't like it. It's not the hat that's the flow issue with the park but I think folks blame it on the hat? I don't know.

It's snowing and raining and windy and about 30 degrees! I didn't want to go with that cruddy weather.

DISing is way more fun!
It is working SO much better YAY for starting your TR

I am so sorry for your loss, we love our fur babies.

We ate well on this trip, no doubt!

Oh absolutely weather/season dependent. On our Feb 2009 trip there is no way I could have worn them. Even on the super nice days, it cooled off in the evening too much. I have no idea what I'll wear next Dec/Jan, that is going to be a harder one for me to pack for, definitely. However at best we will only be at one signature and that's without kids I don't need to worry too much about it. You have those cute skirts, for some reason I really struggle with skirts in general, not sure what my issue is. LOL!

Only rumors that have been around for some time that if various expansion things happen, it goes and gets replaced. But it is all rumor and speculation. I'm playing Ostrich.

Amazing what you can do without kids in tow....

Or kids agendas

Do bear in mind we really didn't go on many rides at all this day or, for that matter, the whole trip! Very different agenda and pace than a family trip. I love them both!

Welcome home! I'm glad you made it to Charleston at least but UGH on the drive and 11pm arrival and...I'll wait for the details!

Sorry I only got one update up, PB was fighting me and it won. All better now though! And, now that I've fought my way through the mess of my safari photos on my other TR I can do my next update over here!

You guys really did get a lot covered that last day... Kudos to youdos...

Your server at Brown Derby sounds... well... a little bizarre... not the best way to earn good tips or make customers happy... I scheduled a lunch with an Imagineer there in July as a surprise for Eric... I hope he's not on...

Lovely pictures in France Cynthia...

Mary Ellen... you are checking in from vaca? I hope you had a fabulous time and can't wait to hear all about it... although the hospital part sounds dicey...

Cute pictures!

I didn't know they were taking the hat down. I know a lot of people hate it, but I like it.

He was flustered, overly chatty in a bit of a negative way (though I honestly believe he had NO clue he was coming across like that, I think he thought he was pretty neat and funny....which is always unattractive) and if memory serves…a bit sweaty.

Obviously I didn't pay much attention to the waiter because he isn't very memorable. I hate when people talk to much about what they don't like. It immediately turns me off and is very unprofessional.

Looking back, we really did do a variety of things that day. It was a great day for Cynthia's last full day.

It sounds like a lovely evening to dine outside. I'm still a fan of HBD since we have had some amazing meals there so I look forward to returning - if I can get any of my family to go with me!
I would think that HBD would get rid of waiters that just can't cut it. Sounds like your meal was no fun at all. I enjoyed my food and dining outside was lovely that evening. I think I've eaten there four times now and the food has been consistently good.
