    We have that too,

    Reminds me of how my Granddad taught me to make a scotch. Pour 3 fingers then pass it near the sink and enjoy.

    I get 2 weeks just cant take it.

    NO PICTURES!!!! FOR THE SAKE OF HUMANITY!!! This is the only exception to rule #1

    I know how you feel

    Right there with you, working 2 part time jobs along with my full time.

    Unless you have a good lawyer it gets taxed at the same rate as a bonus 36% + state income tax if your state has that.

    Evening boys, on my jacks tonight as the lovely Mrs Londontime is out on the razz with her mates.
    So "bud light boarding" is an acceptable tactic?
    Good luck mate, hope it works out for ya.
    Whilst checking the exception the honourable member for Texas cited in the above post, I discovered that Randall's done us over. I can't believe I didn't read the small print before I joined. I knew I should have applied to the Dismoms.

    Sorry for the mis statement. The rule #1 I was referring to was the more general internet rule #1 that says pictures or it didn't happen.

    Which is also Disdad rule number 1!
    Which led me to the full terms and conditions of disdaddery, which to be fair, are pretty onerous.

    'Morning all...
    Took the Mrs. out last night for our anniversary.
    Nice place, wonderful view overlooking the river, fine food, an excellent brew, but it was the company that made the evening.


    Not surprising...
    I actually get 4 weeks, but about 32 weeks of the year are blacked out and I'm not allowed to string more than 4 or 5 days in a row.


    It's a tactic, but "acceptable"?
    Pretty sure that ain't even moral.

    Down to 46 days until our next trip to Disney. This is going to be an interesting trip, as it is my wife, myself and our three daughters. And two of my wife's friends(both female) and one of their daughters.

    So yes, two rooms 8 people. 4 kids, 4 adults. 7 women(and girls), and me.

    We actually got better flight prices to fly in a day early and leave a day later, so while our reservations are 6/6 - 6/13, we fly in 6/5 and fly out 6/14. So I grabbed a hotel by the airport that has free transport from the airport to the hotel. Still not sure if I am going to just use Uber, or magic express from the airport. I gave the Disney folks our old flight info, so we can go back to he airport and use magic express if needed. But I think I am just going to use Uber. Magic Express is nice, but no reason to spend time bouncing back and forth between hotel and airport just to save a few bucks when your on vacation. :)

    First time staying at Coronado Springs, so we shall see how we like it, but it was a bounce back offer, and was really very good. Ended up with free dining, and a rate that was very very cheap. Actually per room this is the cheapest we have done Disney.

    So anyone else down in Disney in June? And I know it's too hot, but my wife is a HS science teacher so it is standard summer break time frame for our vacations. Did it later in the year last time, and my wife had to go to work the day after we got back. So this time I figure go early and she has the summer to recuperate. :)

    Happy Friday. Stopping by both offices today, but going to try and make it home early. Once I settle this thing, I'm calling it and we can start drinking at 8:00 AM on Friday. :lmao:

    Nope. I haven't ever done that.

    I think those pictures could actually shut down the internet, and if not, would get this thread closed.

    Out on the razz. Another good one.

    Congratulations on the anniversary. How many years?

    That's a lot of estrogen up in one place. But, I'll gladly join you if you buy my ticket, travel, food, etc. :lmao:

    Never been to Coronado Springs, but heard it's nice. It is a really large and spread out resort. I had friends stay there who did a lot of walking to their room. As for the June weather, we've been twice and enjoyed it. Yes, it was hotter, but I preferred it to Spring & Fall Break as those times just seem to have become so crowded. Maybe the heat kept people away from the parks and sent them back to the resorts? We did make it a point to drink extra water, which oldest dd isn't the best at doing. We had a great time, and I hopefully have convinced DW that we need to go in June/ July as opposed to Spring Break.

    Morning Men!

    Hope everyone is having a quiet Friday. Dan, were you invited to the Queen's private birthday party?




    All I can say is Good Luck!

    Happy Friday guys. A/C is foxed and didn't cost that much so I am a happy camper. In fact, I may go to the Keys for the day tomorrow. Hope everyone has a good weekend.

    Awwwww. Was she watching over your shoulder as you typed that? Congrats on on earning those brownie points.

    Lots of times. It will be hot, maybe sometimes stepping on the sun hot. Crowds will also be there. I do the early opening, take a break during the afternoon and enjoyed the evening. Remember to stay hydrated and make use of the the air-conditioning in the attractions. Have fun.

    I'm with you today. I'm have some wine later and maybe a bourbon chaser.

    Tell him/her you are looking at international clients. UK. Europe. Canada. The potential upside is endless.
    I was having a glass of wine with CJ, so a double glass of wine it is. See ya there buddy.

    You sir, are one very brave man.

    Of course being at Disney can make anything a bit less terrifying.


    Great!
    One problem…
    My overlords ain’t buyin’ it.


    26…
    Took me a while to find this one, so truth be told I actually wish it were more then that.


    You can have her mate.
    I gott’a wait until the sun starts setting on this side of the pond before they’ll let me out of the cage.

    When I do get back to the house I’ll probably bust into my stash of porters.
    Starting off most likely with one from Holy City Brewery.


    Now there’s a sentence that most of us poor schleps simply cannot utter without it being a lie.


    :laughing: Nope, she’s off at work.
    Worse, she doesn’t read this thread. So I won’t get point one for that.

    Worse still…
    I meant it.

    Dan and I will vouch for you.

    But my pinkie isn't out.

    Only a 45 minute drive for me so getting there isn't a big deal. If I take any pics, I'll post them.

    Good for you. Not on earning the points but because you meant it. I sure she gets that.

    He is not buying it. Turns out Credit Union facilities departments don't do international business. Who knew.

    I only drink the finest vintage that comes in a box

    Someone else can have my wine. DW decided she wanted Mexican food for dinner and I don't feel like cooking so we are headed out with the kids. Beer while we wait and a Mexican martini once we have a table.

    Talked with the pastor and had a "come to Jesus" meeting. Not sure those phrases work in the same sentence, but I had to use them. :lmao:

    He would like me to stay on longer. I said I would think it over and talk to him about it on Thursday. I said that some of the job duties would have to change. It feels good to be wanted. I guess we will see what the next few days bring.

    Landshark beer.

    Glad the AC is fixed or foxed. Either works.

    Congrats. 26 years is a long time. You have more than a few years on me. I'm thinking what to do on our 20th in a couple years.

    Why is that the box wine tastes so good.

    Sounds good. You getting fajitas? I had pizza and beer tonight.

    I had three different wine tonight. All of the 2017 vintage, the first in a brown bottle (Keiths India Pale Ale), the next two in cans ( a Hu Jon Hops and a Maritime Pale Ale). Great wines all.

    Hope it all works out.
