So, dd got to drive while I pushed it a block down the road and parked it in front of the house.
That stinks! Did you find out if it is worth repairing or not? Hope it is something less expensive and easy to fix.

Hey Paul. What does your schedule look like next week? I should be pretty open by mid week. How about lunch? On me this time.

Safe travels. Just an FYI. It's &^%$%& cold up here. If you get the itch to see a Celts or Bruins game, let me know. I know it is a long drive, but I can see if they are home and I can get tix.

Smart kid.

Sorry, I forgot your actual name and I'm too lazy to go back and look. Once I have the hotel/schedule together, let's plan a time to meet up. If it works out maybe a lunch or dinner. We are trying to decide if we should stick to the moderates or maybe stay at a monorail resort this time. We usually rent a car (my rethink if on the monorail)so offsite would be OK as well.

We are using Disney points for the hotel and hoping for FD as well. This is going to be a pretty low cost vacation for us so we also do the HP/Seaworld parks.

Me! I'll be there, hopefully....
Hey Brent. We'll definitely have to plan something. Do you know where you are staying yet? Looking at either POR/FQ or Poly I think. Just trying to make some decisions.

Sorry about DW getting injured. Hopefully it will heal quickly. Prayers.

Hey Philip. While we enjoy following along the ups and downs of single Disdads dating, take care of that little girl. Family first. Hope DD feels better and everything works out. Heading to DL soon right. That's sure to pick up her spirits. And don't don't forget to remind her that you now have DVC vacations to take. That would lift my spirits.

We've been getting teased with snow so far this year. Most times when they predict accumulation, we've gotten nothing. So you may be ok.

Was born in Syracuse and followed them for years. SH is young, doesn't really have a good point guard and turns the ball over a lot. It won't be pretty.

I don't dive here in February. No way am I wearing a dry suit. Plus there is not much to see up there.

Would love to but don't think time will allow it. Have to go into NYC at least one day to see friends. Have to find some of my winter clothes. Hope they aren't in storage.

The Bills would be happy to play anywhere in February.

Can't be any colder than Green Bay in January. Remember the NFC Wild Card game from a few years ago? It was like -5 with a -30 wind chill. I thought Tom Coughlin's face was going to fall off.





I'm sure Barry remembers this game too. LOLOL

Yes, I also remember sitting in Gillette stadium against the Titans with a -7 wind chill in the playoffs. The difference is that those are home playoff games determined by seeding. Someone actually had to think a February Superbowl in NY/NJ was a good idea.

That guy MUST be from Canada!

DD def comes first, she's been doing good, both of us have been sleeping all through the night here lately. DL trip is in Oct but we have the WDW long weekend trip coming up in I think 25 days so that should help us both out. Not sure if I'll even post any specifics about my dating on the boards, last time I was interested in a woman seems like y'all went crazy haha jk

Good luck with it, hopefully it won't be serious

Best case senario is POR, if not we fall back to safe, reliable POP $$ has everything to do with it. Gotta pay for some day camps likely throughout the summer too, and snag a weekend up at that cottage again.

I think Yoda is a great protagonist for the first standalone Star Wars movie. I'm especially intrigued because general consensus is that my buddy Tom Kane (who does the voice for Yoda in Clone Wars) does a better Yoda these days than Frank Oz. Basically, doing Yoda for the Star Tours update was about as much as Frank could handle anymore. Which would at least suggest that Tom could have his biggest role yet coming up soon!

Still haven't heard. They aren't the fastest, but good work and prices, so I can wait. I got to drive the tumbler into work. I thought the shooting it comment was great.

We don't do DP anymore. Just a hassle. Have you thought about TiW?

That's because we are married and trying to remember those days.

Doing movie prequels in perpetuity? Yoda is funny to listen to, but not sure my brain could handle him speaking too long. Be I will, confused. Much take it does not.

I figured his millions would be good consolation.
