Hi! I grew up in Foster, my husbands from Warwick, We live in Glocester now. It's so cold and icy out, I keep wishing we were in WDW. Unfortunately we don't have a trip planned this year (yet).

Ouch! Maybe they have changed since my last one in 1985 .

I noticed that I posted here back in 2003. We now live in Savannah Ga, about 5 hours from WDW. Travel there several times a year. We love the warmer weather and being so close to WDW, but do miss RI and the unique place that our litte state is.

Also went to a few Red Sox games in Tampa last year. A whole lot easier than getting tickets to Fenway!

We go on the Disney cruise in April and can't wait to go back to WDW in Sept.

Another RI chiming in here....born and raised, and continue to live in Warwick with my DH of 19 years.....also from Warwick, and now our son age 6.

Glad to know there are others out there that enjoy our state as much as we do and love Disney too!!!!

Happy day

Not from RI, but just across 395 in South Woodstock, and frequent flyer out of TF Greene. In fact I was just looking at flights, trying to decide if I used my points at Fort Wilderness, if I could manage a solo camping trip. I probably wont go, but I really need a WDW fix. I am so spoiled, we were at Hilton Head over April vacation, and are going in September for a long F & W and MNSSHP.

Next to Hospital Tust Bank, on the corner of Gooding Avenvue, and Hope Street in Bristol. It was right across the street from First National Grocery Market, which had Nyanza to the left, and Newport Creamery to the right...so there take that...

See, sign of a true Rhody....

LOL! Okay, I'll play. Almacs (where my former BIIL worked) was on the corner of Waterman and Butler, right up the street from First National (where I worked).
This was before First National became IGA and then EastSide Marketplace and Almacs became Bread and Circus and then Whole Foods.

Saint Peters Basilica

Now for extra credit...it is the over all fourth largest dome after St. Peters Basilica, Minnesota State Capitol, and the Taj Mahol

I am a technology teacher in Pawtucket, and if you can't tell a coach too ....

Ok, so can a teacher ask another teacher a question?

Where was the first shot of the American Revolution heard?

I want to play!!!! Would that be Pawtuxet Village with the burning of the Gaspee???

I am a lurker on this thread since I have been transplanted in CT. I was born at Lyin-In Hospital and raised in EG, RI. DH is from Hoxie in Warwick. I never thought I would ever leave but when DH & I were ready to buy our first house 3 yrs ago, prices drove me over the line so now I am 10 min over the border in CT but still shop on Rte 2 in Warwick When people ask me where I live, I still say RI...DH has to correct me
