    Pie is good. I'm not picky. Hence the reason I mentioned cake OR pie. Frozen lemonade pie sounds yummy.

    Don't blame you on the cakes. I wouldn't want to be the cause of any traumatic stress for you, so please post what you would make.

    I'm gonna tackle this one at a time... otherwise it ain't gonna happen.

    The end. Well that was quick. What? Still going?

    Okay, then...

    Oh, no. It's perfectly all right. You don't have to thank me. Really, it was my...

    Oh.

    Nevermind.

    I'm sorry, what? Drifted off there for a bit. What were you saying?

    Don't worry. You're doing just fine.

    You're going to give him a swelled head, you know. Then we'll never hear the end of it.

    Bunny-boy works too.

    Got it. Who's the dude standing beside you?

    Thanks for the warning. Cute one beside the rabbit.

    Check.

    Oh, all right. I just thought some helpful nudging was in order.

    Hang on... let me check the book.

    umm...

    Okay, here it is! Yup. That qualifies as a reason to be called rookies.

    crumb?
    gum?
    plum?
    scum?

    Nope. I have no idea what you might be alluding to. :rolleyes1:

    Family board! Family board!

    And you hung out with them? What were you thinking? :laughing:

    Yeah! Wait a minute! Gimme back that rookie card!

    Welll...... all right, you can keep the rookie card.

    Wow, does that sound familiar!

    Not in your household.
    Not in my household.

    That's two for two.

    Wrong. I can read about DLR in a book. But I can't get your personal insight anywhere else.

    I'm okay with that. I'm sure you'll mention anything that strikes you as really worthwhile. Otherwise, I'll just enjoy the ride.

    Those are the good ones.

    Sounds good to me. :thumbsup2

    Great start, T-man. I'll be back later for the next bit.

    Me to. popcorn::

    Oh right, my TR. I forget. I'm used to someone else doing the writing. Plus I gave you two chapters already. Well really it was only one, but in 2 parts. Not even Nebo and Ponzi gave them to you that quickly.

    Working on it. Want to have at least 2 more pre-trip chapters up before we go.

    I'm in! Boy you guys like putting this pastry chef to work! As it happens I used to work in a Pie Bakery so I will share some of our best selling recipes...later

    As for comparing DL (can't get used to calling it DLR) to WDW, you almost can't help it. As we were walking around, the thoughts kept popping in my head. Some of it was, this is better this is worse and some of it was this is different, this is interesting. The biggest thing is the castle.

    Can't help but mention that if you drove you could have kind of combined Vegas and Disney as there are several casinos along the way.

    Oh and seriously get a fastpass for the Carsland ride which means being at the gate for rope drop and bee lining right to the fast pass area. Also get a fast pass for world of color, ou have to do that early too!

    Hi QB.

    Thanks for posting the recipe. I added the link to my reserved post (Post #2). No recipe necessary to join in the fun. Well at least I'm not requiring it. Lady H on the other hand, she's the one asking for them so you may have to pay her admission fee. Glad you could join us.

    I've been spending a lot of time on the DL boards. So I think I have found most of the answers I am looking for. At least for now. If I come up with anything though, I'll be sure to ask. TIA.

    Hi CP.

    I'm sure it will be a natural instinct to compare. Just hope we're not comparing so much that we don't enjoy it. So that's why we're going with an open mind.

    If we didn't have the flight credit to use before it expired, we probably would've drove and stopped at Vegas on the way. With the credit we had, it was good for a one way ticket for each of us. Plenty of casinos where we live as well. Pass one each day to/from work. If we go again next year, the plan might be to drive. I really don't feel like planning a 3rd vacation at the moment, so we'll get through this one first before Lady H starts, oops, I meant until I start planning the next one.

    Thanks for the FP tips. We'll keep them in mind.

    Welcome Magic.

    As I said in my last chapter, being from NM, you would think we would go more often since DL is so much closer to us, and cheaper. At least that's what I'm finding out.

    Ah. Thank you. You're just being modest. I bet you say that to all the TR writers.

    Nebo and Smidgy
    Laura and Mr. Squid
    Ponzi and ? Well I know Ponzi's DW's name is Ruby. Being we have never seen Ruby, I don't know if Ponzi is cute enough for her. Could be she's too cute for Ponzi. :rolleyes1 If their daughters look anything like mom, I may not be too far from the truth. :rotfl:

    J/K kidding Ponzi. I'm sure you and Ruby make a cute couple.

    Nah. Everyone knows I'm butt-ugly... and mean, too. Ruby's cute though. Don't know why she picked me.

    Probably felt sorry for me or something.

    ...and my comments thereof.

    Right! What the heck gives?

    Heck, where we live, you can't get anywhere without a minimum 8 hours of driving. You gotta do 14 or so to get anywhere interesting.

    Technically, that's the best time.

    We should know soon, I think.

    Sometimes we have no choice but to drive... but I'd prefer to fly and rent too, given the choice.

    That's a shot, isn't it?

    It is!

    I'm outta here!

    Well... ok. I'll stick around for a little longer.

    9 ½ years? Wasn't that with Mickey Rourke and Kim Basinger?

    That's no excuse! Slacker!

    Isn't that illegal within city limits? Oops! Never mind. What happens in Vegas...

    Good call.

    Isn't slot machines, card games and craps (the table game) why you go?

    That's what happens to things that are lighter than air.

    There's an outdoors at Vegas? Who knew? :confused3
    DD15 and my DDad have April bdays, too.

    ::yes:: And then they try to sweeten the pot with bounce backs, too.

    :worship: All hail the King! Long live the King!


    too much?

    popcorn:: This should be good. My money's on Vegas... it cheats.

    I do that too. Then skew the numbers in favor of wherever it is I wanna go.

    Like I said. Skew the numbers.

    Atta boy.

    Mexico?

    Might have one for you tonight.

    It always is, isn't it? :)

    I'll be here! You're off to a great start T-man! :goodvibes
