    Thanks KG.......I`m a big believer in Karma too :thumbsup2

    :rotfl: Oh my goodness whatever made them think that??? Definitely Scottish....even though we live in England :thumbsup2

    But......you know me....I talk to everyone :rolleyes1 and around the parks when I have struck up conversations with people.....the amount of nationalities I have been asked if I am......strangest one was French :confused3 A woman from Texas came over to me once.....she had heard me speak in the queue for the bathroom......and asked if I was German......I do have a bit of German in me but not speech wise!!!! :wave2:


    Glad you`re feeling bit better....but definitely see the doc just to get checked

    Yes you get your picture taken after you get your room key, there are machines in reception area and in the parks and it`s put on a separate paper .....same size as room key.....and it`s definitely still Unlimited EP :thumbsup2

    Good luck with bubba no2.....looking forward to a picture :hug:


    Not much going on here today.......housework......salad preparing......and that`s about it.

    Looking forward to going up to Scotland next weekend......leaving the 2 boys to fend for themselves for about 10 days I think...spend some time with mum and visiting friends and family.

    Hope everyone has a great weekend :goodvibes

    I love Scotland... I've only been once but it was such a good trip. I'd love to visit again someday. The Fringe Festival in Edinburgh is incredible! :goodvibes

    schumi, you are such a really nice person to give your friends the trip!

    ::yes::


    something very good will come your way now.



    have fun with mum and enjoy all the time with your family & friends on that trip.

    10 days in the homeland and then a short wait until you come to the darkside.

    you lead a fun life!!


    mr mac took off early this morning for a canoe adventure.
    he is making this a short one of 3 days.
    he loves anything that has to do with water and sleeping on the ground.

    taking one son to the dentist for another molar to be crowned.
    i keep watching the hhn site to see when tours will be available.
    don't have wifi at the dentist so hope someone will call me if they see tours open up if i am not home.

    hope everyone has a great weekend...........just get thru today and 5:00 will come quickly.

    goND -:woohoo:another baby for the homies to ooh and ahhh over:thumbsup2 good luck with the delivery (better living thru chemistry;))

    tomoorow we head to the real sticks for DIL's employer sponsored free movie day v.2. How far out in the country is it? they lost power ten minutes into the first show a month ago and cancelled all the showings for the rest of the day.

    youngest son took megabus to NYC yesterday with his buds for a vacation at one of their parents' homes as home base near sandy creek area. I do believe I developed a few new grey hairs. He'll be missing the BD dinner i'm having for my two old:rolleyes1sons on Sunday, they don't seem too thrilled to be sharing a celebration lol.

    what's everybody else doing this weekend?

    So the hubs and I are making one small revision to our original plans. We're keeping everything as is but are adding one night at an onsite hotel (most likely HRH but I'm not 100% on that yet). We're doing it for 3 simple reasons. We want the early entry and unlimited express and it will make our HHN night a little more enjoyable since we enjoy having a drink (or several) while running for our lives ;)

    We were planning 3 days in the parks any way and this will allow us at least 2 with the perks. Otherwise our stay will be offsite in a vacation house to give everybody room and allow for us to keep the munchie costs down.

    Here's the thing that I find funny...at not in a good way. I don't know how SW employees deal with them but I know the TMs at Universal don't put up with their stuff. However...Disney is always talking about the "guest experience" but refuses to do anything about the groups and the CMs are powerless to stop them because of management. I've seen plenty of threads on the DIS where someone (usually a child) is knocked down or stepped on by these kids and that's scary. Go talk to the parent who's trying to pick their child up off the ground and who's crying about the "guest experience". It's really sad how Disney turns a blind eye to anything but money.

    That, and this ridiculous Magic+ stuff, is exactly why I may be avoiding Disney for a while. I may make a small day trip to see the new 7 dwarves mine, but other than that, its just getting too expensive. At least Universal seems to be using all this extra money Potter brought in to their advantage, plus Comcast seems to really like the theme parks. I mean the new Fantasyland is a start, but there's a lot more that Disney needs to do to make it like it once was.

    Well, looks like our August trip to WDW and Universal has to be cancelled. Wife's father has been diagnosed with the big C and having a kidney removed on the 13th. He told us to go ahead and take his granddaughter on vacation but there is no way we could leave at a time like this. Family must always come first. Hopefully everything will be fine and we can still take our quick adults only trip in October for HHN and perhaps visit again in early Dec with my daughter who would love to see Christmas decorations everywhere.

    Well you`ve done something I haven`t.....lol.......I have been to Edinburgh a couple of times but never for the fringe......maybe one day we`ll go. Everyone says it`s always good. Glad you liked Scotland......it`s a beautiful country....when the sun shines and the midges don`t get you :laughing:

    Can`t wait to get up to Scotland next weekend.......I miss everyone :hug:

    Oh I hope mr mac has a great trip........sleeping on the ground is a bit alien to me....I do admire him for that. When I met Tom I told him the only stars I sleep under is a 5 star rated hotel.........he never mentioned camping again :rotfl:

    Hope ds is ok too :goodvibes

    Hope you have a nice trip to the sticks......how long is ds away for? Is it a long trip? I would be grey too......my ds hasn`t got the bug to mooch away on his own yet......thankfully!!!!!


    Got my friend popping around for an hour tonight......she`s the one with the husband I`m not keen on. They got back from Orlando yesterday and I pray she managed to have a great trip despite the military operation he had planned :eek: He`s not coming.

    Just discovered my washing machine is leaking. It was such fun cleaning 14 years worth of wet crap out from under it - woohoo! I briefly considered trying to have it repaired, then came to my senses and found a cheap replacement at Best Buy's website. Within 5 minutes of rolling it to the curb, an elderly man rang our doorbell and asked if the machine worked. We told him the issue, he said he'd love to take it and fix it, and we helped him get it into his truck. Now we're drying the floor and cleaning up the mess. I'm SO ready for my Universal trip!

    I had just been feeling overly thrilled about finding a Travelzoo deal on Hampton Inn for our first night in town - a whopping seventeen buck savings over the hotel I'd already booked. The washing machine incident kind of took the wind out of my sails on THAT...lol...c'est la vie!
