I'm so sorry for you and Fran. Sunny had the best parents she could have with you two. *hug*

I want to thank each and every one of you for your sentiments. If I responded individually I would break down in tears. I am having a hard enough time responding just now. I feel her spirit here still, when I walk into my bedroom, I feel like she is still on the bed, but I just can't see her. This cat was larger than life, for a little four pound thing, she made her desires known and her needs apparent.

If she wanted to sit on someone's lap, she made sure you put her there. If she was hungry or wanted food, you knew. Whenever we ordered take out or served dinner, she came hobbling into the room to say she wanted some, it was more than cute.

I'll try and get back to the TR Monday. We have our concert tomorrow and I will be consumed with all the preparations and things involved tomorrow. Maybe if there are any good clips that I capture on the video camera, I will post some video.

Hope the concert went well and you both enjoyed some peace and relaxation.

I know just how you feel about Sunny. It's been nearly 8 weeks since Riley passed and I still feel his sweet spirit. That's love.

It was OK, but I had to tell a lot of our friends in band about her. It was after rehearsal Tuesday night that the whole downhill spiral started. The other kitties are fine, but they just don't want to be as cuddly as Sunny was.

Peace and relaxation? Clearly you have never managed and produced a concert!

We did have a good margarita and dinnner with friends after the concert. First time at a CPK. I feel like I'm going to burst!

It's only been a few days and I miss her so bad. I could have sworn that I felt her in our bedroom in spirit. I just hope that we don't feel her "other habits" in bed. While I didn't mind taking her to potty a couple times a day and keeping our bed covered when we weren't in it, I'd prefer that we didn't have to do that routine now that we don't get the benefit of her love and cuddles.

After lunch we decided to hit some attractions. Our first stop was Mickeyís Philharmagic.







Then we decided to ride POTC. We hadnít been on this ride at WDW for probably 15 years, we ride it all the time at DL. After having been on it again, I may not have to ride it for another 15 years! Itís missing at least three rooms in the beginning and the other parts are just not the same either! The queue was very interesting though.

Then we went decided to get one of these.







This was the day after the Super Bowl and since we were here, we decided to sit and wait for the parade. We got an awesome spot and it was only going to be 40 minutes until the parade started.









Well, 45 minutes later a CM comes by and says that itís going to be another half an hour. At this point, we were tired and hot and decided to bail. We went down Main Street and started looking in some shops. Well, like 15 minutes after we left our spot, the parade comes by!

Fran contemplated buying this.



Iím not sure if we actually bought anything, I donít think so. We decided to head back to BLT. We left the MK and started down the hill past the security check. Fran was tootalooing along and I went back to ride up the path to BLT. My scooter stopped again.

I knew there was no way it was going to make it up the hill, even though it was a small hill, obviously my battery was having a problem and was going to need replacing before the next big trip. I put it in neutral and pushed it up the hill. About this time Fran realized that I wasnít right behind her and came back to see what was up. Back on level ground I was able to limp along, but even the curb cuts when crossing the street were too much of ďhillĒ for the poor little thing to make it up. I canít remember if I just put it in neutral and let Fran pull me or how we ended up getting back to the room. I think I had just enough power if I stayed on flat surfaces.

Now there was another funny thing about coming back to the room. I knew we were on the 5th floor, but neither of us had bothered to memorize or check the room number! If youíve ever stayed at BLT you know that the hallways and rooms all look sort of the same. We were trying our room keys in every door on the MK side. Finally, Fran found our room! It was pretty funny. 7526. I never forgot it after that because 7 + 5 = 2 * 6!

I totally agree about PotC, WDW version. It seems to miss a few things....not that there is anything wrong with that.

Thanks for sharing the Dole Whip float. Now I want one!!!


And nice picture of you and Fran....and the castle. I hope the scooter was okay for the rest of the trip.

I think that I need to do research at both Disneyland and WDW and start noting all the difference, this should take some extensive research....

Want to help?

Love the picture of you two!

That sucks about having a prime spot, being told it would be another 40 minutes and then it comes down the path you just left. Ughh,,

I thought it was funny when you said "Im not sure if we actually bought anything, I dont think so." I can picture this.

You and your math puzzles...

Yeah, I definitely like ours better. There is one room with a Harpsichord at the very end of the room. When we were studying Gregorian chant in college, the piece of music caught my eye. Now almost twenty years later, the same piece of paper is there, however it has deteriorated from the moisture. I will be sad when it crumbles and falls apart, it's pretty close to it now.

The scooter, well

Great update. Dole Float. I also think Disneyland's POTC is so much better than WDW's. WDW's Splash is superior. Disneyland's Space and IASW also beat WDW's. BTMRR seems the same to me.
