    Yes, Ship was very chivalrous.... not sure if the brewery ALOWED him to keep his job after we got through with him! And yes, glad you noticed we will finally get a drink! ;)

    All the single riders, all the single riders...... put ur hands up......

    Ah yes, "me" time...... :rolleyes1

    I forgot about Illuminations that night!!!! So basically, we got back around 9:30 (well, those of you that weren't cuffed and thrown in the back of the WDW paddywagon.......) and still stayed up that late! So much for an "early night!" :rotfl2:

    If you learn nothing from this TR, young grasshopper, at least you've mastered the basics.......

    Just wanted to pipe in here....Flashback two years ago, I'm again in Nebraska, I found a computer out in the barn and am seriously having a Depends moment, or rather a series of Depends moments as I read this TR....:lmao:. (Only this time, I'm not responding to accusations that I "think" I'm Mary Poppins!) Gosh, I miss you ladies, miss our crazy times, heck, I even miss the hot waiter at Tutto Italia...er, ok, I guess I just miss Ship, the man with about 15 jobs, and just as many degrees! That Big Un was quite funny! My only question is, since Evie and Lonnie don't read the TRs (or do they and just don't respond?), do they STILL think Laura got sick on TT? :rotfl2:

    Carry on, Ellen....I can't wait to re-live more of our adventures from out here, perched in the hayloft (or should I say on an island.....man, there is a LOT of flooding out here in the Omaha area!!!!)....Miss you, my dear friend! :hug:

    I’mmmmm backkkkk. Sorry for the delay in updating DISmoms’ Groupies. My daughter (13) and I just returned from a 5 night/6 day WDW trip. She discovered roller-coasters and boys on this trip. Both have not been of importance before now. She has decided we must always stay at OKW because many hot boys stay there. I did not tell her that there are hot boys at all the resorts – because it is summer and we NEVER travel in the summer. Too hot!

    Now how to I add the DISmoms' icon to my sig???

    Funny lady! I think you need an assertive personality to be president and I am a wimp. Thanks though. :hug: I will try to keep the list going providing we are not annoying the DISmoms. :confused3

    Uh Oh - Test Track sounds like it may have shook some things up a little. Loved reading about your dinner and the happy birthday video was great.

    I know all of you groupies have been waiting patiently for an update...we have all been swamped, and I promise to update this week! Here's a little bit about what I've been up to-

    In June, Pods & I celebrated our 25th anniversary- we had dinner planned (booked a month prior) at Po in NYC- one of my favorite restaurants ever! Tim had a baseball game, Ty's was cancelled due to rain (still can't figure that out, why one was p[laying and the other wasn't, but whatever....) and Pods & I took the train into Manhattan (it's 2 trains from here because we don't have a direct line, but it takes just under an hour). We then took the subway to the West Village, then walked to find our favorite drink spot, through Washington Square Park-

    [​IMG]

    We were looking for a watermelon tini- but, unfortunately, they had closed, so we just went across the street.We ordered our first drink, I had some sort of bizarre tequila drink-

    [​IMG]

    Don't I look happy?

    [​IMG]

    Yea...well....then I checked my phone. And all hell broke loose. Timmy had been hit in the head with a bat- he seemed fine, except for the 1/2" gash below his eyebrow. Which would require stitches. Which he would be going to the hospital for. Because of baseball insurance. WHich he would be taking an ambulance to. Also because of baseball insurance.

    So we called the car service to pick us up 4 1/2 hours earlier than we had planned- sat in an hour of traffic getting through the Holland Tunnel (even though we were within walking distance) and went to Overlook Hospital in Summit, NJ.

    Where Timmy was sitting on a gurney with my friend, Cindy, waiting for a plastic surgeon.

    [​IMG]

    Gooooood stuff.

    We thanked Cindy (& Darraugh, our other friend who drove to the hospital to bring Cindy home, and deliver our anniversary dinner of lays potato chips) profusely, and at 11:30 pm Timmy got 8 micro teeny stitches from a very nice plastic surgeon. Tim was a trooper, and his team mates were calling him constantly- which was so nice.

    But what. a. CRAPPY. Anniversary.

    So Pods & I went out to dinner in Kenilworth, NJ the next night at Le Rendezview, which was nice, but it was no Po. We brought our own wine, so that was nice.

    Happy 25th- Round TWO-

    Ahhh, you guys look so nice in your photos. I am sorry Timmy and youse had to experience the hospital on your anniversary. However, your "second" (not potato chips) anniversary meal looks delicious.

    Off now to paint the bathroom. Stripping is finished, (molding in the bathroom, not me stripping :rotfl: ), woodwork has been stained and varnished, now I am painting the walls and rehanging the woodwork. Next year we will PAY someone to do the other things which need doing in the bathroom. We only have been working on this particular project for about ten years. :rolleyes:

    We were very lucky this past Sunday to get to go to the beach- there actually were NO baseball games and NO practices between the two boys!!! A miracle!! Evie had mentioned something about going down to her house 4th od July weekend, but we had no sitter for Sean (unfortunately, he can't go to Evie's because she is on the bay side and we are too afraid of Sean running into the main BLVD-). But this week, we were able to ask Sheree. And she was happy to.

    For those of you who are new, Sheree is my cousin, who, along with her DH Henry, has helped us out more times than I can count by taking very, very good care of Sean while we go with T&T to do other family things that Sean either would not ber interested in, or would not be able to do (like a cruise- he doesn't understand safety issues). They have provided respite for us for years, and we love them dearly. :lovestruc

    Sadly, this past April, Henry passed away very unexpectedly- he had a burst blood vessel and a brain bleed that could not be stopped. :sad1: It was sucha bad time. And Sheree is devastated. So, for now, we are all keeping her busy with other things- she comes here for overnights alot, or for other family events, goes out to PA to visit family- that kind of thing. But we are all going to be greiving for a long time.

    ANyway, Sheree will be staying with Sean when we go on a cruise next month- and this was a good way for her to spend a night here with him to see how it would go.

    And they did great, of course. Sheree is wonderful with Sean, and he loves her a great deal.

    Sooo...even though Evie & Tom could not go to the beach, she VERY generously gave us the keys to their beach house and said, "GO!"

    Typical Evie. :angel:

    Anyway, here are some pics frtom the past couple of days from Long Beach Island (North Beach, specifically), NJ-
