Safe travels to those on the road.
Drove up to Ridgewood last night and back home today. Cool to see the KY Speedway track but a long day. Allergies still kicking my butt.

Sorry I haven't kept up lately... life has been in overdrive this week. Prayers to those that need them. High fives for those who are celebrating. I'll be posting stuff to FB this week.
Have a safe trip! If you run into my in-laws, give 'em a raspberry for me.

Hey, I make trips to Kohls just to get my sneakers, gotten some good shoes way cheaper then if I'd have bought them here...

Any DisDads in San Diego? I'll be there for a conference tomorrow through Sunday.

Sorry I've been out of pocket lately. Job has been keeping me busy and politicking for the other job keeps me swamped. All in all, I'm good. Happy birthdays! Happy anniversaries. Prayers to those who need it. Great job to all sports and school achievements!!!

You got snow? We got floods. And they say there's uniformity in the Midwest.

Morning

Well Brian, you wanted to know if a srtike deadline was set, it's going to be May 17th. Looks like they are aiming for the long weekend for leverage. Before it was always the summer.

Now I get to stress myself earlier this year! I've always get the fear "this is the year" and if we do go on strike, any substantial length will jepordize the August trip. I really don't want to strike, but it's not up to me. My other great flaw is I am always a "worst-case-senario" type of guy.

Morning David!

Matt
Thanks, Matt! Actually, it was bumpier flying into MCO than it was taking off from ORF! No idea why... it wasn't even that windy out. Great flight... had us 15 minutes early. But then there were no open gates! lol. Spent the extra 15 minutes waiting on the tarmac. Go figure

Thanks for the traveling mercies, all! Sorry if I missed anyone's replies. Trying to type quickly as we get ready to head out. We are going to endure another hour of timeshare "refresh" pitch in order to get a $75 AMEX card. I'll sit patiently and shake my head for $75 an hour

Today is Epcot day! Woohoo!! My favorite park. Will keep updating FB as I go

Morning Guys.

Hope you don't have to strike Brent. I have never been in that sitution personally but DW was close a few years ago.

Oh and remember it is once again Hump Day. You all need to try again but hey, let's be careful out there.

If you believe the receipt, he had to have saved about $500 if he ended up spending $250.

For some reason with that store, even with 50% off and bonus dollars, I always feel we still could have got it somewhere else cheaper anyway of the week
