    Hunter has always loved Captain Hook and Mr. Smee. We have lucked up and seen them a lot over our visits to the Magic Kingdom.

    Hunter was laughing and the crowd was laughing too. It was a fun character meet.

    Lacey was too busy getting her cinnamon sugar almonds. That was one of the three things that she "just had to have" on the trip. The others were cotton candy and a turkey leg. Never got the turkey leg.:confused3

    Luckily, Hunter has never been afraid of the characters. I hope that Claire will grow out of the scared phase too.

    I was snapping away the whole time Hunter was up there. I am so glad I did because, like you said, they tell the story so well.


    These characters really got into character. (I made a funny.;)) The cinnamon sugar almonds are sooooo good!

    I sure did! And this time, it came out just fine. I didn't use the Paula Deen recipe though. I found one on the Kraft website. It was a white chocolate tropical pound cake. Of course, I didn't get to taste the final product but the batter was super good!

    I am sure that your kids will talk about that cruise for a long time to come! It sounds like it was magical.

    There is nothing like walking down Main Street and seeing and smelling and just taking in everything.

    There are a few things that I could skip at Disney and not really care if we missed it. But, the Tiki room is so nice and cool that we just couldn't pass it up this time.

    I thought the view from Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse were cool. We let a lot of people just pass us by while we watched the guy with the parachute.

    I'd love to see any picture you have from your "part of the country". We are just so plain here in Louisiana.

    Are you feeling better now? 'Cause I hope to get another installment posted this afternoon.

    How's the boss' mood since the internet lady didn't work out?

    That would have been funny! Maybe I should have shown Captain Hook and Mr. Smee my Mickey watch that does tick!

    It was a great experience. I think that was the best one of the entire trip.


    I thought about you this weekend. I was in Wal-Mart yesterday afternoon and I saw this boy. I kept thinking "where do I know him from?" I just looked at him and smiled. I got about three aisles over and it hit me...."It looked just like Dallas!" I saw him again later on. Tell Dallas that he has a twin in Louisaina!

    Don't feel bad about just getting back to reading my report. You have had a lot on your plate lately. I'm just glad that everybody's getting over the swine flu. And, another reason for you not to feel bad about it is the fact that I am behind on your's too. I've been trying to get caught up this morning.

    We've done the Hoop Dee Doo twice and liked it both times. We thought the luau would be something "different" to do at Disney. I'm glad that we did.

    I hope you meet them too. I think your boys would love them because they really played their characters well.

    The internet lady came to his house this weekend and they ate with my boss' parents. He said his parents really liked her but there was just something about her that he didn't like. He promised it had nothing to do with the fact that she wasn't attractive either.

    I told him to give it at least one more date before he makes up his mind.

    By the way, I'm getting together my list to post in the first installment. Hopefully, it will help my readers keep up with where the actual/real installments are posted. It's just going to take me a little bit of time.

    I have missed out on way too much conversation. I went to lunch with Sheri, got back to work and within 10 min the Dr. says cancel his day. He is sick and went home. I said you might consider two days and of course he said he'd be back tomorrow. I think this is the 2nd time in 7 years he has done this.

    At least it is nice and quiet now.

    I went thru my TR and on page one at the top I put the page #s of the actual TR so people wouldn't search. I don't think it matters tho cause no one but my regular friends ever gets on it. Thanks friends.

    I am glad that your boss did not give up on his internet friend, even after he met her in person and found her unattractive. That's very good of him, I'll have to say.

    Question, though: didn't he have a picture of her before he met her? Surely they exchanged photos online. Of course, a picture doesn't really tell the whole story, does it?

    Well, it sounds as if it may not be meant to be. Poor guy. :goodvibes

    Everybody say "Thanks Connie!" She was working on the last half the trip report and I was working on the first. The two of us now have a complete list. I can update the first post now!

    Thanks Connie :cheer2:

    Thanks Lisa :cheer2:

    I'm ready to now read. It is all but dead at this office today since the Dr. went home sick. So sad too bad. I didn't say that it was the little man on my shoulder talking again.

    I'm glad that he didn't either. In all seriousness, he's not just looking for a pretty lady that's easy (you know what I mean ;)). He is mostly looking for companionship. Somebody to go to the movies with, travel with, spend time with, etc.

    My boss is super intelligent. He's always spouting off all kinds of famous quotes from Shakespeare, books, Presidents, etc. But, he's very straight forward. He cuts no slack. If he thinks that you said something stupid, he'll tell you. And, ya'll already know that he will say the first think that pops into his head about kids. I am always saying "I'm fixing to." instead of "I'm about to." I know I shouldn't say it but I say it all the time. And, he reminds me every time. His entire family is like that. They sometimes lack.......what's the right word.......tact! I'm always telling him that he can't speak his mind all the time. He's got to bite him tongue at times.

    He had never seen the internet lady before they met. They met on some kind of yahoo group. Maybe it would have been better if they could have seen each other first. I gotta tell you though, if she had seen my boss first, she may have run in the opposite direction. When he's not in court (where he has to wear a suit and tie), he's in shorts and a t-shirt. In the winter, he's all about jogging suits. He's got a few strange looks from new clients but he tells them that he's not going to sit around uncomfortable all day long. They usually agree with him.

    I really hope that he finds somebody soon. He's much happier when he has a girlfriend.

    I've been trying to get an installment posted every since lunch time. I think our ghosts are at play today. Several times, my computer has cut off all by itself. I also have a little space heater over in the corner that has fallen over twice already. It's nudged in a corner with the walls to the back. I don't know how it got turned over backwards.

    If I remember to give his pill every morning he's not bad. But forget one day and all he wants to do is interrupt me.

    Well, I certainly wish him all the best! Everyone needs someone that they enjoy spending time with and can do fun things with.

    Yes, I know several people who will speak their mind, regardless of the topic. I have a friend that I lunch with who I have learned to overlook. We were having a group discussion over children pitching a fit in Wal-Mart (or wherever). I told them that I would leave my buggy wherever it sat and promptly remove Mitchell from the store. I got the "crazy" look from my friend that I should not do that b/c that's what he wants anyways, is to leave. Nope - when he pitches a fit it's because he wants something he can't have or he's just in one of those unwilling to behave moods. I don't put up with it, so we leave the store, go home, and get a punishment b/c then I have to go back to Wal-Mart at a later date. This only happened twice so far. He knows better. So - wouldn't you say I got my point across?

    Well, argumentative friend who speaks her mind had to make a ten minute discussion out of a simple statement. It's annoying, but at the same time, I know how she is and I try not to let it get to me. Some people are just that way and there are times when I think she could also bite her tongue! :p
