    Great update, Glenn. Sorry the kids didn't seem as thrilled with you and Judy with Vero; but, I think you might be right that they might have liked it more after the hustle bustle of the parks.

    Sorry about not getting your requests at Kidani and the long walk for your parents to the room.

    Do they even have pay phones anymore? I can't remember the last time I saw one.

    Glad your parents finally arrived.

    :woohoo: for the Judy point! Finally back to comment on the chapter.

    Hope you had your phone off.

    I can understand that. I can usually spend a day or two doing nothing on the beach before I'm itching to go out and do something else. Different strokes, I guess.

    Great job Judy!:thumbsup2

    So now it's a 50/50 proposition. Interesting.

    Looks like you were close to our room. I actually liked being close enough to Jambo House to walk over.

    :lmao::rotfl2::rotfl:

    Oh wait, you're not laughing.

    She might have been a little guarded, seeing you with your hands around the concierge's throat.

    DUDE. Sweeeeet.

    :rotfl2::rotfl2:

    That stinks. But all's well that ends well, and you're in Disney at Kidani! Things could be worse.

    Allow the flattery to begin. I actually mentioned you on FauntleroyFan07's trip report because you two are some of my favorites to read.

    A couple of years ago, I was having a rough winter. I don't do really well with dark short days and since I work in social services for low income people, the cuts to the federal budget were causing serious problems with how we deliver programs to people who really need them...long story short, it was cold, dark and I was miserable.

    I found the Dis by accident while checking out some ideas for a trip to DW and found your first trip report. I read it all in one go. Luckily, it was a really slow day at work! I freaked my husband out and had to convince him that I hadn't suddenly become some kind of weird Disney stalker...

    I try to be patient. Really I do. But...I am not so good at it. I need your updates like a junkie needs a fix and I bet I'm not the only lurker out there that feels that way. It's not like you can just read any old trip report. Some of them are really not good!

    So, thanks. Thanks for putting your family and your trips out there for us. I appreciate it!

    We're going back in January so I might (probabably not) be okay through February...but then, I can almost guarantee that I will be back out here looking for reports again.

    Oh yeah. But in a window...not a mirror. Whew!

    A time'll come when they can appreciate a more relaxed vacation too.

    Thanks. It was okay, but I really didn't want them to have a long walk.

    Hmmm, the last one I saw was when we were driving through Lancaster county over Thanksgiving. It was at the edge of a cornfield. For the Amish, I suppose. ::yes::

    That was easy! :laughing:

    :yay:

    You know what? I don't remember. I had it on so that I could wake up for the sunrise walk on the beach, but I sure don't remember getting awoken by the text.

    Yup. I'm good for a couple of days and then need some activity too.

    Thanks. She was happy with it!

    Roll of the dice.

    I only went over to Jambo a couple of times, but we'll get to that as we go through the chapters. Did you get food from the Mara often?

    Yes, the little quote-thingee was to the right of the 'ha ha ha'. :rolleyes:

    Yeah, her strangling him might have been overkill. Literallly.

    That's a lot of prime real estate bay-bee!

    Exactly. I love it there. :goodvibes

    I saw that....thank you! What a nice thing to say. :blush:

    What a coincidence, a slow day at work is when I wrote it too! (Did I just say that?)

    Many of us here have been accused of that. Some of us anyway. Okay...me. :rolleyes:

    That may be, but all of the TR writers who post on here are great! :scared: :laughing: (But it's true.)

    Aw, thanks!! You made my day!!! Actually 2 days, because I read your post yesterday and again today to reply. And, the goodvibes'll probably seep over to tomorrow. :goodvibes :)

    I'm happy for you Elianor! But bumming a little since we won't be back for a couple of years. :sad: I watched a little bit of "Walt Disney World Resorts: Behind the Scenes" tonight on the Discover America channel. I'm not sure if that was a good thing or not. I know you know the feeling!

    No, just the first night. But we did enjoy just wandering through Jambo House and taking lots of pictures. The atmosphere and theme are just amazing.

    I was watching the same show! And I've seen it like 8 times already. :rotfl:

    Oh I know. But we're always on the go so much, that I don't usually have much time just to wander. I need a longer trip!

    Me too. Have you noticed in the other one, (I think it's "Undiscovered Disney" or something like that), where the cast member keeps calling it Bippity Boppity Boutique rather than Bibbity Bobbity Boutique? It drives me crazy. I could see a guest getting it wrong, but a cast member, being interviewed for TV???

    I never noticed that. But I think I zone out a bit on the BBB portion.

    My work has suddenly unblocked photobucket, so now I can finally get caught up!

    I really like Starbucks VIA too. Definitely the best instant coffee I've ever had. Have you tried their iced tea? SO good!

    Wow, that beach vacay looks really nice and I like that they have so many activities available. I don't think I'd be able to spend more than 3 days just lounging on the beach anyways but Andrew would love that. That's why cruises are so good for us!

    I just love your way of reporting Glenn, with all your pictures. Always makes me feel like I'm RIGHT.THERE.NEXT.TO.YOU.:hippie:

    Those turtle tracks are so cool!

    Aw man, poor Poppy and Gram was stuck in the airport for that long! Glad everything worked out ok.

    Lookie there - despite being MIA forever I'm still on the tally board! :)

    Hi Glenn!:wave2: Hi Glenn's readers!:wave2:

    I really haven't fallen off the face of the earth. I feel like it sometimes, though. Shortly after I went back to work, DH "retired". Well, he'd already retired, but had gone back to work. Now he has left that job with some vague promise of going back to work "sometime". He really needs to because after bouncing off the walls at home all day, by the time I get home he has the evening planned out for me. Unfortunately he doesn't plan any computer time for me. :surfweb::(

    On the up side - I did get some Disney time planned! :cool1:

    I will be at Saratoga Springs Jan 19-26th. Will any DISers be there then??

    (Sorry for hijacking your TR, Glenn. Mine is lying in the corner of the internet somewhere feeling very neglected. :guilty: )

    I wish I could say that, but the error sticks out like nails on a chalkboard to me.

    I'm working on one, but I'm too tired to finish it tonight so you might be in luck.

    It's a nice relaxing spot.

    Well all right. Yay work!

    No, I haven't tried their iced tea....I might have to.

    That's a good point -- cruises have all those options, so the best of both worlds.

    No wonder I always felt like someone was following me. ;) jk. Thanks for the compliment Yuki, I'm glad you're enjoying it.

    They sure had us wondering where in the World they could be!

    Hi Tanya! It's great to see you. I wondered where you were; hoped everything was okay.

    It's hard to fit everything in, no problem. But you'll have to get him to grant you a little web-time every so often.

    Well now you're talkin'!

    I don't mind a bit. :goodvibes

    I'm sure all your devoted readers would be more than happy to write to your boss and explain that you should get some time at work to write your trip reports. Just give us their email address and we'll do the rest! :rolleyes1

    Also, I'd like to guess 3 Judy's in your next installment. This is my only chance to be the 1st with the correct guess. Although it's more likely I'm the 1st with the wrong guess.

    We'll see how that works out for you. :scratchin

    :welcome: JanaJohn! Wow, yeah, gee, thanks for the offer but somehow I think an e-mail campaign is probably not the way to go. :rotfl2: But I like your enthusiasm! :thumbsup2

    Hmmm, that could be fun to allow pre-guessing, but that's a dangerous precedent to set....

    ...See what I mean JanaJohn?

    Are your spidey-senses tingling? :goodvibes
