Ponzi, you haven't kept up, I'm at 41 years, 2 months and 13 days right now.
I think I deserve a break soonishly.......... Then again, I don't know what to do with my days then, so it maybe a while yet.

But not to worry, unless I meet my maker, I should still be in the area by 2015.

How about that the actual date was September 10, 1977.

I know I was flabbergasted when I found that out.

.
Well, I spent about two minutes staring at your words - trying to figure out if I was missing some kind of joke.

So count me flabbergasted.

ok I have been sort of busy and absent for a bit bi. I was planning to catch up on Sunday but I needed to head out to Disneyland for the day. Yeah it was a tough job but it was for a good job. You see some dissers are heading out here in less than a week for the first time and being the giver that I am thought that heading out there to take some pics for research purposes of course might be helpful.

any way today my youngest daughter, Megan came by and I was telling her that next Sunday her dad and I were going to head back to Dl for a dis meet with tman and lady h and none other than the famous nebo and smidgy. she looks at me and says, ( I am not making this up) the guy who"s posts you tell us about? the guy who gets hurt all the time? " I was just cracking up. then, "do you think it is a good idea to have dad and nebo together in the same place since dad gets hurt all the time too???" too funny I had said the same thing a couple of weeks ago
back to ponzie's report now
very excited to meet these four folks finally.

Nope. Gotta have the word Paris and have an Eiffel Tower. (and no, the TV tower there doesn't count.)

nevermind.

There. Something should've tumbled out the left ear giving you more space.


You're welcome.

Interesting. I never noticed the smell, though. But, admitedly, my sense of smell isn't that great.

Which is awesome when you're surrounded by farting people in an elevator.

Oh, sure. Many hospitals and daycares use NFL Football (with the sound cranked waaaaaaay up) as a method for lulling the kiddies off to dreamland. The sounds of the men bashing into each other with loud grunts is very similar to the sounds Mommy would make when she was trying to get up off the couch when she's eight and a half months preggers.

I was afraid of that. I couldn't remember for sure how long it'd been. I knew you'd recently celebrated a milestone, but couldn't remember how long it was.

So I took a shot.

Mea culpa

I know! That's crazy!
When I looked up the last time the guillotine was used in France, I just assumed it would be sometime in the 1800s.... but certainly not by, say 1910 or so....

But 1977????

Welcome! Glad you're enjoying it.

And for the record, even before I saw your siggie, I immediately thought of beer.


Working on the pics for the next chapter, even as we speak.

Or 'chat'

Or type...


whatever.....

And bless you, for your sacrifice for the benefit of others...

ya know. it's been years since his first trip report, and his "notoriety" has grown. back in our smoking days, as we were enjoying a sunny d in a dsa at ak. and he eavesdropped and talked about the "magical DEPRESS" (if you need a translator, you are NOT a neboite)2 ladies practically attacked him "You're NEBO!!!!" they were SO excited and wanted to have their picture taken with him!

and once in line for the boat from beach club to DHS, a few ladies recognized him and wanted thier picture taken with him.

he SO SO wants to still be invloved in this wonderful online disney fun!!!!!!! between his broken wrist and all ... but he wants to tell you he is still here!!!!!!

hey what can I say i'm just a giver that way
But yes very excited for this weekend.
Smidgy don't worry there aren't too many really scary rides there but I do strongly advise to stay away from Mickey's Not So Fun Wheel. I am pretty ok on rides and love a good coaster but that ferris wheel is just awful when you get into one of the moving gondolias.

Gotta call you guys when I have a minute to spare!

"minute to spare". I crack myself up, sometimes...

So there you have it. What I get out of that is Heather will go on Mickey's Not So Fun Wheel of Death with Smidgy.

You heard it here first folks...

Research? Oh my. I'm little worried now. I'm becoming a science experiment. Don't you know it's inhumane to experiment on innocent, sweet, loveable bunnies.

Next Sunday? We won't be there. We (we being Lady H and I) will be at Oceanside. We can you meet you there if you like?

Or did you mean this coming Sunday? And how come no one told me? I thought we were meeting Thursday?

Oh wait. That's right. You have to deal with teenagers worse than Ponzi on Thursday. I remember now you mentioning that so we switched to hanging out Sunday morning instead at DL.

I remember you saying that as well. I think I still have the email. I agree with Smidgy. Please don't jinx it. We have to get through a whole week and I prefer it be at DLR and not the ER.

Yes. Back to Ponzi's report. What did her write about again? I forgot. Was it about some tower that King Kong invaded and destroyed and how he and his family barely escaped alive? And now King Kong is on his way to NY to destroy the Empire State Building. I remember now. Good chapter.
