Beautifully said. Just the image of it has me all teared up.

Love the idea about pool hopping to the Poly. I need to see if we are allowed to do that next month (Spring Break - likely not, but going to check!), it would be a perfect break in a MK day versus trekking allllllll the way back to SSR.

I like both old and new Tiki Room shows. Too bad they can't do it like the Great Movie Ride - two different versions, so you never really know which one you will get.

I am so glad that I have the happy memory of her getting to take this trip. When she got back, things seemed to go downhill quickly, but the pictures everyone has of her in WDW just give me good feelings about how she 'went out', so to speak.

We are not fans of the tikki lounge new or old. Claire however does seem to like it. But I won't be rushing back anytime soon.

What a nice afternoon at the pool.

Great updates! I've never tried the pool hopping thing but it sure looks like fun. Tracy had a great time doing it but did say she thought it was easier staying on the monorail line and hopping to resorts on the monorail line. She thought it might be too much of a hassle using the bus transportation. I think she said the GF pool was her fave... she said the poolside counter service food was amazing! I may have to check that out in the fall! Always nice to hear about yummy counter service with options other than burgers!

She definitely was an inspiration that trip and she did have a great time. I'm incredibly grateful she got to go.

Hurrah for an upcoming trip, Mary Ellen. It sounds awesome!

From Stringbean:Does it make me sound really weird to say that it REALLY bugs me that only one of the "letter" pumpkins is a different color??

No! I kind of like it, but I am not super organized person. I tend to be a little chaotic, so perhaps that's why!

Sounds like you had a great time visiting the Poly!! It really is a beautiful resort, although you know those pathways confounded us for a little bit! -

I love visiting the Poly. To me its a tropical oasis. Do I prefer it to the Epcot resorts - No, but I do really like it.

Actually it is better than in years past. At least this year I had some commuication and my pleas did not go into a black hole.

From PoolRat Pat: I cannot remember how many years I have been doing this but I have been involved in the league since 1999 first as a coach, then as the facility person where I used to work until 2006. When I got my current job but I was at another facility that did not have a swim team but I kept the secretary and treasurer duties. When I moved to the currently facility in 2011, they have a swim team and the guy runnning it has been doing it for 20 + years. I have also known him for close to that long so I guess I am back in it.



Somewhere in there I started taking the entries for the championship meet. Not hard and time consuming when everyone does what they are supposed to do.

Some facilities do not have that consistency and let the confusion begin.
If they would just listen and not pretend to have it under control it would be fine.


It all goes back to the old adage - sometimes it's just easier to do it yourself. How frustrating!

My personal bartender is either Clinta or John. They usually work opposite each other and one is there but the last time both were off and I had a third guy I would recommend but I have to remember his name.

All you need to do is ask for it to go and they will put it in a cup for you.



Clinta. I remember you said that name. I am definitely going to remember that for my next trip!


One of the things I love about NC is if I don't like the weather I just usually have to wait no more than a week. Yesterday cold dreary and raining, today High of 55 and sunny and beautiful. I hated the grey dreary cloud cover from Thanskgiving until Easter.

Pat - You just described exactly how I feel. I looked outside today and thought to myself "how many more days???????" I am so over it. I feel like I have wasted too much of my life in this weather. I would kill for 55 sunny and beautiful right now. I know even when I went to Williamsburg last spring the weather was so much better just 250 miles sounth of here.

I think it depends on what browser you are using. I only have safari on my two computers at home. At work I have an old version of internet explorer and it works fine. I just wish it would get fixed. I might just try it on Denny's pc later tonight and see if it works.

Cynthia, for making it to the opening ceremony at MK!!! I really do love that opening.

All you did by 10am? You had a very nice morning!

Mary Ellen, the reasons you listed as to why you like running... I feel the same way. No getting ready to look all pretty...just get up and go...and see where the road takes me.

How cool you two ran into Tina! I saw the picture and I knew who that was! Too funny that Gaston was not too happy that you took away attention from him.

The shop near Gaston's Tavern I completely missed!

Mary Ellen, I like any kind of burger really... but I have two kinds of issues... a beef burger can be too greasy and then or a veggie can be too carb heavy and

The pics you got on the jungle cruise are so good!

Cynthia, now your meal at LTT was much more in line with what I would love! I love the apple chicken salad at Panera... so I could see ordering what you had. YUM!



I love the border on this pic...it goes so well with your outfit and the random person in the background.

Mary Ellen, my dh said your issue is probably a browser issue and not a "mac" one. Maybe an update was released and you didn't do it... or you did do it.... Hope you get it figured out though. Not being able to copy is frustrating!
