    Fun pictures. I can hardly wait for Monday, and our San Diego trip. No SW for us, but we'll be staying right next to it.
    The sharks give me the creeps. Have you seen Jaws 3 in 3D? Stupid movie, but it does include a giant shark bursting through the glass at an amusement park. I always think of that at SW.

    That sucks. Sorry to hear about that Heather, but glad you’re feeling better now.

    And yet… so many, many people truly enjoy it!

    Okay, I can see that being hit by a ton of bricks might cause some discomfort. Heck, I’ll bet that being hit in the head by one brick would sting at least a little.

    Why are the maidens always fair in stories? No unfair maidens? Not even a bit of a cheating maiden?

    “Wait a sec! That’s a two headed coin! That’s not fair!”
    “Oh, yes it is. I’m a fair maiden.”

    The end. Thanks for the TR!

    Same thing.

    We just went from a trusty steed to a trusty map. A downgrade if I’ve ever heard one.

    I reiterate… I would’ve sashayed. But to each his or her own.

    What could you do figuratively?

    Well… some people do. Others get upset when they get wet… no matter how many signs that bluntly say, “You WILL get wet”.

    But…

    Walk in dryer? I think I’d pay the $5 just to try it.

    Uh, oh.

    That’s what I was thinking too.

    Why seek medical attention when you can just hide it?
    Makes sense to me.

    I’m telling ya… If that turtle had sashayed instead of shimmied, he’d’ve made it.

    Fail!

    Poor ‘lil guy.

    He needs somebody.
    Not just anybody
    You know he needs someone

    ::yes::

    Ah!

    I was thinking, “How come SW can keep theirs but MK can’t?”

    Because it’s on the outskirts… fewer opportunities to dump stuff on people.

    Nice rock. But if it’s from T-Man you might want to check and see if it’s real. A man who will shave or grow a beard with no warning can’t be entirely trusted, ya know.

    Hmmmm… can’t say for sure, but…. Piranhas?

    Never did see that movie…
    So I guess I have neither the heebees nor the jeebies.

    Ever wonder what that says about our society where not only do we need to be entertained with a show, but we have to be entertained while we wait for the show and we also have to be entertained while we’re waiting to be entertained prior to the entertainment!

    I wonder if that’s the longest sentence I’ve ever written.

    While this sounds amusing… I don’t believe you. Oh sure, it might have happened somewhere else, somewhen… but… nah. I’m not buying it.

    What a great job! If he screws up and accidentally falls in the water, the audience is going to think it was great and part of the act. I wonder if he ever actually has fallen in?

    Typical otter prejudice. Everybody remembers sea lion names, but nobody ever remembers the otter. Well otters have feelings too young lady! They have feelings and personalities and names gosh darnit!

    His name is Bob.

    You may not remember… but you otter.

    Actually, I kinda like that. Oh, sure I’d want to see the show, but it really illustrates that these are animals after all. And sometimes an animal is not necessarily going to behave like a cartoon character.

    Exactly. And trying to force them is just cruel.

    The first three pics are sand tiger sharks. They’re pretty docile. They look mean with those teeth sticking out, but there’ve been very few reports of sand tigers attacking people. The sleeping sharks are nurse sharks. Really, docile. The last couple of pics are what look like Blacktip Reef sharks, also quite timid.

    I’ve watched a lot of shark shows in my day.

    I know you were just kidding (I hope!) but this actually happened fairly recently in China. Several people were injured, not by the sharks but by flying glass. Here’s a link: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/12/27/shark-tank-breaks-china-video_n_2369967.html

    Okay and I’ll try to get my comments in before the time after the end of time! Thanks for the chapter Heather! :goodvibes:

    Thanks! Glad the migraine is gone...however, Now i've run into another issue. Insomnia. I don't know how I did this back in college, but running on about 6 hours of sleep total for the last few days is turning me into a zombie now at my age. :headache:

    But instead of complaining...I'll just go by Cardinal Richard Cushing's words...

    I'm Fine
    "There's nothing whatever the matter with me,
    I'm just as healthy as I can be.
    I have arthritis in both my knees,
    And when I talk, I talk with a wheeze.
    My pulse is weak, and my blood is thin,
    But I'm awfully well, for the shape I'm in
    I think my liver is out of whack,
    And a terrible pain is in my back.
    My hearing is poor, my sight is dim,
    Most everything seems to be out of trim -
    But - I'm awfully well for the shape I'm in.
    I have arch supports for both my feet,
    Or I wouldn't be able to go on the street.
    Sleeplessness I have, night after night,
    And in the morning I'm just a sight!
    My memory is failing, my head's in a spin -
    I'm peacefully living on aspirin.....
    But - I'm awfully well for the shape I'm in.
    The moral is, as this tale we unfold,
    That for you and me who are growing old
    It's better to say, "I'm fine", with a grin
    Then to let them know the shape we're in."

    I've said it before, there are some truly strange people in this world...



    It will only hurt for a moment...Take it like a man!


    I don't think the stories would go over as well if they started out with,

    "Once upon a time, an unfair maiden lived in a beautiful kingdom, taking advantage of all the noblemen in the land by carrying around a two headed coin and daring anyone to second guess her when she won."



    You're welcome. Now you may return to your regularly scheduled lives and forget this TR ever happened.




    It goes along with the unfair maiden story...What can I say.



    No one can sashay like you Ponzi. So we just don't bother trying.




    :rotfl: Yeah...I got nothin...


    The first time I saw the walk in dryer, I think it was at Universal in Orlando. We had gone on Bluto's Barge and as you climb your soaking self to the exit, there are about 2 or 3 dryers waiting your arrival. The kids seem to love them. When i saw the ones near this ride I figured there was no way I wasn't going to get wet...I guess it's a good warning system. :rotfl:



    That's what i figured. I mean what is the doctor going to do? See that my eye is possible scratched and then give me something to cover it up with anyway...I don't even have a medical degree and I'm all over it!



    :lmao:




    In my lack of sleep haze that took me a moment before I went...AHA! Beatles, I tell ya, Their songs speak to everyone and everything.



    Yeah, the only people you can dumb stuff on on this ride are the paddle surfers. While it may be fun, it would be too much work to really try to hit them.



    :rotfl2: Fortunately, his sense when it comes to buying a ring is better than to shave or not to shave. There is a whole story that goes along with these rings...



    I believe you are correct sir.



    I have only watched the first one. I know they made a sequel, but I just couldn't watch it. The funny thing is, every time I watch that darn movie, I end up with my feet up on the bed or couch and worried that one of those darn things is going to come up and attack me. [​IMG]



    :lmao: You can't have entertainment without entertainment...I mean even commercials at times are entertaining. Isn't that the reason we watch the superbowl?

    I'm gonna go with yes...Only because I don't want to have to go back to all your posts to figure it out. :laughing:



    Can't fool you...



    Both T-Man and I wondered this ourselves. The two times we have seen this show, it has been a different guy playing Biff, but they each do the same sort of routine, just with their own style of flare. It would definitely be a riot if he did though.



    Hello, my name is Lady H and I'm an otter snob...

    Barum bum! [​IMG]



    Yeah. Just like we as humans have our off days, (Not me, you know I'm always on my game :laughing:), animals have their days too. It's refreshing to know that they are given the time and treated well even though.

    I know that for Seamore, they tried to coax him into doing his part, but they realized early on that he wasn't going to. Unfortunately Clyde wasn't happy about him not participating so that sort of threw his part off. But the rest of the cast was very professional about it. Did not berate the animals for not doing anything and let them be.



    To me, it's big, it has sharp teeth and it's not an herbivore...so i'm not going to take the time to introduce myself to find out more.



    I watched that on the news after it happened. That was crazy. I can only imagine what was going through some of the people's minds who were there. I would have been scared out of my mind.



    Thanks for the breakdown...and Thanks for coming back :goodvibes

    I hope you have a ton of fun while you are there! Send some pixie dust our way would you?

    I have not watched Jaws 3...I stopped watching after the first one and to be quite honest, i don't think i have watched the entire movie from start to finish. I just couldn't get into it. :confused3 but the idea of a shark bursting out of the glass at a park, for that matter, any animal busting out of an enclosure at a park is a big fear of mine, especially around snakes and other creepy crawlies...of course I'm arachnophobic and tend to project that fear into other animals. I know...I'm a strange one.

    :wave: Welcome to my world!

    Thanks for that. Loved it.

    Well... okay. But getting hit in the head has made me the way I am. You sure you want me to get hit again?

    Was that a typo? If not, it's very apropos, no?

    Yeah? Give, lady.

    That reminded me of a joke I once heard a comedian do. Don't know why but I always found it funny.

    Picture the scene in Rocky where Rocky (Stallone, of course) is being berated by Mickey (Burgess Meredith)...

    Mickey: "You're a bum, Rocky!"
    Rock y: "I ain't no bum."
    Mickey: "You're a bum, I tells ya!"
    Rocky: "I ain't no bum."
    Mickey: "You're a bum!"
    Rocky: "I ain't no bum."
    Mickey: "Yes you are! You're a bum!"
    Rocky: "I ain't no bum."
    Mickey: "Awright, but you're a lousy elocutionist!"

    <long pause>

    Rocky: "I ain't no bum."

    Yikes! I don't remember visiting those sharks. :scared1: Heather, it looks like you were more afraid of riding the gondola than the Manata. ;) You got some great pics from up there, though.

    Hey, we will be heading across your state in a couple of weeks - going to Texas. We've decided that AZ isn't right for us so we're going where the kids are and starting over. I'll wave as we drive through!

    Beam me up scotty!



    You're welcome. I have it printed out and hanging by my computer.



    Couldn't get worse...could it?



    Actually it was a typo. In my lack of sleep induced haze I didn't re-read before posting. but it was a very apt typo.



    <sigh> are you sure you really wanna know?

    Picture this...January 2007 give or take a couple of months, T-Man and Lady H find a great jewelry store in downtown Santa Fe, not far from their workplace. After a few trips to look around, we find what we want. The jeweler tried to get me to go bigger with the stone. I was already freaking out on how big this one was, and unless the bigger one came with body guards, there was no way...

    we set up a payment plan, and paid once a month. Since the wedding was in August, we figured that would give us plenty of time. And it did. We were able to pay them off a couple of months ahead of time and had made plans to go by a few weeks before the wedding to get sized and pick them up.

    About 2 weeks before the wedding, we took our lunch hour to walk down to the store and get sized. As we approached the store, we noticed the lights were off and there was a sign on the door, stating the store was closed. The owner had up and left. I stood there shocked...I wasn't sure what to think.

    Next door, the landlord owned another jewelry store, and he saw us standing out front looking beguiled. He told us that the guy just up and left. Took everything with him, and left to Jordan. He even let us into the store to see for ourselves. We found our portfolio, empty, sans our names on the front, and the pocket envelope that should have contained our rings, was empty as well.

    With two weeks to go before the wedding, I was at a loss. These were our rings. We had made a point of finding something unique and ours and now they were gone.

    So naturally I lost it. I almost fainted and thankfully T-Man just held me and let me cry.

    We filed a complaint with our consumer division, and filed with the local police as well. and set out to find new rings.

    Other stores in the area had heard about our dilema. We had been in the paper the next day (http://www.abqjournal.com/north/584168north_news08-06-07.htm) and most stores were very accomodating. They were willing to give us discounts to try to make up for our loss, and help us find the rings we wanted. But nothing was the same. It was so hard to find something, when you have your heart set on what was.

    Later that week we finally went to Zales, and found a matching set that we agreed on. It was nice, and simple. Just not our rings.

    That Friday, now a week and a day before the wedding, I was driving home in the middle of the day. I think i decided to go home early as I wasn't feeling well, and I got a call on my way home. Another jeweler in Santa Fe, was calling to ask me when me and my fiance could go in to get sized.

    It was a good thing there weren't many people on the road at that point. I am sure I swerved like a maniac. Here was this guy, acting like nothing had happened, who had our rings and didn't bother to call or anything until now. I was livid.

    Turns out, the guy we bought our rings from had given this new guy our rings, along with some other merchandise that others were expecting, for fittings and finishing, while he went on vacation. Never bothering to tell anyone.

    I told the guy on the phone everything that had transpired over the last few days, and needless to say he was pissed off at me for filing with the police. I got his phone number and told him to wait for a call from T-Man. I then called T-man to tell him the news.

    I believe T-Man called him and got the info from him, he was also able to give the guy our ring sizes and told him he would pick them up next week. In the meantime, the other jeweler had contacted our original jeweler in Jordan and gave him my phone number.

    That Saturday, he called from Jordan to explain the mess. Seems he was having issues already with his landlord, and was expecting something, though not as drastic as shutting his store down, while he was away. So he gave the merchandise to his friend to finish up and get to the customers. Only neither of them thought to call anyone to tell them that. So he was having to make a lot of calls from home to stem the situation.

    The landlord figured that while he was gone, it would be a great time to shut him down. Told anyone who would listen that the guy was a thief. Took everything with him along with the money and hadn't paid rent in months...blah blah blah...

    In the end, we got our rings, sized and ready for us before the wedding...along with a wonderful jeweled globe as a wedding present from our original jeweler.

    At the same time, we had to take back the rings we purchased from Zales, and were out our deposit money on that, because they had already been sized.

    Not the best start to our lives together, but it worked out in the end. Our rings are very dear to us, needless to say.



    :lmao:

    Well I thought I had been too. I hadn't had one in years, since I started going to the chiropractor. But this one came out of left field and knocked me on my butt.



    :rotfl2:


    The funny thing is, I have always had an issue with my eyes...nothing major fortunately, but because I wear make up and eyeliner in particular, a lot of that crud gets into my eye, so I'm constantly picking and prodding...Until something like this happens...

    This one in particular was doing everything in its power to get onto the sand, but just couldn’t quite shimmy far enough. Eventually all his hard work getting to where he was, got washed away as he slowly slide back into the water.


    :lmao:


    I know right? It's amazing what they can do now a days.



    At least someone is with me on this.



    "...Two, the lightning sand, which you were clever enough to discover what that looks like, so in the future we can avoid that too..."


    Actually, it took place in Perfection, Nevada...and was filmed in California. So i'm safe for now...although I would beg to differ with that after i've watched the movie...




    I agree. The pre-show entertainment is always great. The mime is one of my favorites. Of course I haven't been a part of his entertainment series, so that may be why. :rotfl:



    It is quite entertaining to watch them. They are trying so hard to put on a show for the audience and the poor animal is having none of it. They are really great with the animals but you can see their unease as they try to coax the animal to play nice.



    Thanks...I think those are a mixture of pics both of us took. It was difficult to catch them just right. They weren't in the mood to stop and pose.


    Thanks Nebo...Hopefully I will get the next chapter up soon. Work is making me work this week so we'll see what happens.


    :lmao: I think you nailed it!

    :rotfl2: I think your right. At least with Manta, there was a seatbelt that I could hold onto and knew I wouldn't fall to my death. The gondola on the other hand was a little spooky as it creaked and swung a little as we headed out over the water.

    I'm sorry that AZ didn't work out for you. But I'm glad you are at least going to be closer to your kids. That is a plus. We will be happy to wave back to you!

    The fateful music from Jaws was creeping in as we started to hear the tell tale signs of cracking coming from all around us. No…This couldn’t be happening. These tanks were supposed to be solid. Even with these crazy animals inside, there was no way that it could break right? Just then, water sprang from a corner, spraying out like a fountain, then another, and another. This was really happening.

    Turning to Mike, who had the same expression I am sure I had on my face, we grabbed each others hands, holding each other close as the slow moving walkway inched us closer to the exit…Or death as it seemed. This was no way to die. No way to embark on our 5th year as man and wife. Slowly the walkway lurched forward and then stopped all together! What? There was no were to go. We were doomed. As JAWS 8.5 came towards us with what looked to me, an eager smile, and the cracks started working their way across the entire length of the tank, we knew this was it. Water started to come from everywhere, the cracks just barely holding together. We knew it was only a matter of seconds maybe before the whole thing gave way.

    Just then, my knight in shinning armor realized that just because the moving walkway wasn’t moving, didn’t mean we couldn’t. Grabbing my hand he took off at a run, just in time as the dam burst, water flew over our heads, glass coming at us, the sharks would not be too far behind, up ahead we could see the light at the end of the tunnel, just a few more feet and we would be home free…

    Something hits my foot, almost making me tumble forward. I have to put my hands out to balance myself before smacking head first into the pavement. The walkway has ended. I look up to see the glass tank in perfect condition. The sharks swimming along like they have been since we came in. Other people are slowly making their way in from the other end of the tunnel. Mike is already walking ahead of me, making his way to the exit. Wow…Talk about your crazy daydreams. I shake my head and hurry up to catch up with Mike.

    Our next stop on our SW tour brought us to the sea turtles. Now I know we already saw some earlier on, however, those were on land…or at least trying to get on land. I wonder if he ever made it up? Poor little fella.

    But these turtles were swimming around; just enjoying life as they munched on lettuce leafs and lazily made their way to the next area of the tank.

    At this point, we decided to make our way to the other side of the park so we could hit up Journey to Atlantis. As we strolled along, we noticed that the line to ride the Skytower was no longer a mile long, so since we were here, we figured, might as well.

    We walked up the long winding ramp that lead to the entrance. You could see the tower making its way down from the last ride, so it shouldn’t be too much longer until we got on. I was excited.

    We hadn’t had a chance to do this the last time we were here. It was cloudy and windy that day and they had shut down the ride due to the weather. This was our chance to do something new.

    The ride itself is nothing spectacular. It’s a big round glass enclosure, with a circular bench seat. You sit facing the outside, and once in, you slowly rotate all the way up this big pole, and then rotate all the way down. It’s a very slow, leisurly ride, giving you complete access to the fantastic views of the park. This is one of those moments where you can look around and see what you have missed or what you may want to do next.

    Here is a sky view of Manta.

    From here, we decided to stop again for something to drink. It was hot and we were parched. After stopping for our drink we once again made our way towards Journey to Atlantis.

    Of course, we got distracted once again by another show. This time it was Blue Horizons. This show is really great. Of course I’m a little bias. I absolutely love dolphins and any show that features them is great in my book.

    The show is a mix of stunts and acrobatics blended with dolpins and whales and birds. There is so much to see when watching this.

    For this show, the animals were better behaved and were having a great time with the audience.

    Say hi to the nice people on land!

    Once the show finished you have a choice of exiting stage left or stage right…we chose stage left and ended up at the dolphin play area.

    And boy were they playful!

    This guy kept creeping in for a peek. I think he was looking for food, as the trainers were on the other side working with a group of people who paid to hang out with the dolphins.

    Pretty soon the dolphins got board with the humans and wandered off to the trainers.

    We continued our way towards Journey to Atlantis, and saw this guy sniffing around.

    We stopped in the market place area once more for a drink and T-Man took a picture of the flags right in front.

    Now this is where things get fuzzy. According to T-Man, he says we went on Journey to Atlantis. I remember walking down that way, and my memory says that they were sending down empty cars, which to us made it seem like they were testing the ride. T-Man however, has a more vivid imagination and insists we went on the ride. He even says he was trying to calm down a kid that was scared. I don’t remember this…I blame it on my eye problems. Gotta blame something. I mean it can’t be my fault right?

    I do remember towards the end of the day, heading to the Shamu show, “One Ocean”. This was the first time we caught this show after the name had changed. The idea behind the change was to focus more on what we as humans can do to protect the waters for these animals, and why it is so important to take care of our lakes, and oceans.

    As we made our way to the theater, we passed the dining with Shamu area. One of these days I would like to do this. It just seems like it would be a fun experience to watch the whales play and roam while you’re eating lunch or dinner.

    T-Man finds some seats near the front, in the “splash zone” of course, and we sit and wait for the show to begin.

    As you sit and wait, you have the usual employees trying to sell everything from towels and blankets, to hats and bubble guns. Of course all the kids are begging parents to get them one or the other. Bubbles are popping up everywhere around us.

    On the jumbo tron you have ways to ask questions or befriend one of the cartoon “buddies” via text. You can even send shout outs to your human friends that will show up on the screen randomly.

    They let a couple of the killer whales out to keep the guests entertained. Sort of like letting a runner take a few laps around the track before the big race.

    And then the show began!


    I’ll leave it here for now, and start working on my next chapter so I can close this day out. I hope I can get it up this weekend! I’m working today, so we’ll see what I can manage to write out while I’m here at the office alone. I mean…I’m so busy with work that I don’t know if I will be able to do any more on this today…yeah…that’s it…
