It's true. He even puts up with us Drunken Sconnies.
I'd love to see Cj go diving in out lakes.

Hey, you drunken Sconnies are not the easiest to live next to. Especially the Western Sconnies.

Thanks Aaron. I'm actually home on Thursday afternoon. What is your opinion on the best resort between WL, AKL and CR? We have only stayed at Polynesian and may try to do a deluxe. I am kind of fond of the monorail resorts. We are booked at POR right now, but have done POR, POFQ and CBR for the last 7 trips.

The way theme park tickets are going, I think we are shying away from Seaworld now, it'll be between $300-400 for what will amount to half a day or so? Might just take the day to relax, and hit DTD instead. Kids would love another pool day too....
Good that you could get that discount. I enjoy the resort days.

DW turned the heat on the other night as it dropped below 67 inside the house. I can't believe it is this cold in May.

We refuse to put the heat on after April 15th. We just pile on the blankets and sweatshirts. in the 60's and sunny here. If we could just do something about the wind it would be ideal.

I'll hijack and go with Poly. That is on the bucket list too. Once they build DVC there after GF, I'll get a stay in.

It's not just the mailbox. The carrier sometimes brings the mail at 5:00 PM and sometimes at 1:00 PM. Maybe it's Newman.

Sounds good. I fell asleep at my desk today. Decided to come home before I snored too loud and woke up the others.

I refused to turn on the heat, also. I lost.

We'll be in WDW 6/16-6/19 so I think I will get to spend Father's Day at the Magic Kingdom!!
Sounds like a fun trip, especially at MK.

I was very glad to see that I'm not the only Disney obsessed dad out there. I just won a Disney polo on an eBay auction that I will wear with pride on a golf trip in a couple of weeks. It just sucks it's not going to be at Disney! Need to plan to do that sometime.

Looking forward to getting to know you guys a bit more, this forum is great!
Welcome. Dues are payable in dole whips, bacon, beer, or cake. Just send them to me and I will distribute them. Where are you in KY? I'm in Owensboro with DW and two dds (11 & 8). I guess you are allowed to be both a UK and UL fan as our state just rocks in basketball.

You may have made the earliest page 1 sneak attack in forum history. Although, I'll leave it to someone else to verify that. Way too much work.

We had a first communion and a funeral mass as well so this weekend was absolutely crazy.
Busy weekend. Sorry to hear about the baseball thing. I just don't understand why loser parents continue want to live through their children. Hey, the most important thing in your life is the final team score on your 4th grade _____ team. Then, they parent them to be hate filled towards their peers in life. So sad.

I think we've only got about 100 acres or so in the ground, but Dad and I are a little over half done with corn already. We got some rain yesterday and this morning, but once it dries up, I'm planning to take 2 or 3 days off of work to get it done.
Great pictures and sounds like a lot of work. Hopefully, you will have better weather than last year.
