I don't always get distracted but whe...SQUIRREL!
- Jul 8, 2009
It's been a long time since May of 2015. That Memorial Day weekend it just happened that BamaEd and myself ended up at GSP at the same time. We talked about how good it was to be able to meet up at a location a little closer to home and be able to say "Hello". One shrimp cooking and a little conversation and we parted ways. The puzzles stayed at home.
May of 2016 we decided to try it again, and several more of you joined up. We represented several states worth of Disers on that one. We ate lots of shrimp, chicken, crawfish, and steaks. Some of us ventured to NAS Pensacola to see the Blue Angels, others went to see Jimmy Buffett. Randy and I nearly went to jail (because of the previously mentioned steaks). That's no joke...we nearly did. We put several faces with several Disboards names and shook A LOT of hands. That year's puzzle was Beauty and the Beast.
May of 2017 saw us together again. We moved mostly up to Live Oak Dr. for better shade. We ate lots of shrimp, crawfish, ribs (southern dry rub and then some midwest BBQ sauce flavored), more chicken, and lots restaurant seafood. The big group outing was going to the Wharf to see the premier of Pirates of the Carribean Dead Men Tell No Tales. We had greatly expanded bike trails and walkways. Gators at the lakeshore. Memorial Day evening thunderstorms to be remembered. The puzzle was Winnie The Pooh.
Now for 2018!
First off, the lineup and sites. Now, I'll warn you all, BamaEd has each of the last two years done a fantastic job of keeping the list neat and up to date. I'm not as computer savvy as he is, so this is the best I can come up with:
Well, anywho, what I need is for you guys to update me on the dates you'll be there and I'll update the above list. (somehow) My dates may change, but currently I'm booked May 24th - June 2nd. Since I booked, my youngest daughter has changed her dance gym and NOW she has a dance recital on June 2nd, so I'm gonna be cutting my trip short. I just don't know how short but will update it when I do know.
Also, and I am really hoping this happens, maybe I can get to add some names to the list above before it gets here.
Now, this year we got the new Star Wars: Han Solo will come out Memorial Day Weekend so that is another movie option at the Wharf. There is lots to do down there. We have noticed how each of us can show up and meet and talk and yet each of us can go our separate ways while we are there and see the sites and taste the local food and not feel like we are obligated in any way to just hang out all the time.
I do unfortunately report that Teamubr (Jim) won't be able to join us this year nor will Dirtywhiteboy (Nic) but each had priorities that came up and hopefully will be back with us again next year.
Oh yeah, and let the antics begin...
