Bit chilly here today, may go change out of my shorts before i head out for an errand run. Least thesun is finally out!

Sue - re DL planning on doing BBayou for the fantasmic pkg. torn between the world of color pkg or dessert party.

Tratorria are’s standing area seems to be further back than I’d imagine but thinking the ground rises upwards there? Still do’t think my tiny GD would have much a view. The dessert party is winning as there is seating at small tables. Have you done either of those in GC?

Charade - very nice pics. You hit it lucky at the new DL offering. Seems pretty slow there. They said all the warnings are keeping the locals away. Not sure if the various AP blackouts have kicked in yet there. I expect the latter part of our trip there in August will be slammed as they are lifted then

Never heard of golfers rash? Are we talking heat rash?



It’s consistently that way for me on my iphone, grrrr. Had hoped with the new format here they’d have got rid of that virus.

Make him buy
Yes! Love Blue Bayou and seating area. Remember to request a table close to the water when you check in so GD will get the full effect! They give cute cushions to sit on for the viewing area. Great view. My having to sit on the ground and get up, not gracefully lol!
We also loved the WOC Dessert Party. Great view, and nice selections. It’s splurge worthy lol!
When is your DL dates again? 8/11-8/17 is ours. Where are you staying? I looked at the crowd calendar for our dates on Undercover Tourist. Ugh. It’s projected to be busy. I’ll deal with it. We have Max Pass which helps. May take afternoon breaks back at hotel pool make some evening FPs. Will do what we can and not sweat it.

Good evening. Potatoes roasting on the bbq. Salad made. Waiting on daughter to get home from work to throw chicken on bbq. Have it sitting in Adobo seasoning I bring home from Florida!

Sunny side up eggs :crazy2: Nope, not for me. No egg snot lol!

Charade, Disney is so good about returning stuff. Once my daughter lost her purse on Space Mtn. Just flew out of car. I can see why Universal requires lockers. Thankful her passport wasn’t in it. It was the last ride of our last day! Disney sent it, got in around 2 weeks.

Mac enjoy your tacos.

Keishashadow good luck with Dr Death lol!

Pattyw thinking good thoughts for you.

Weather heating up here, forest fires starting here, Washington, California, here we go again. Ugh. Seems to be the new normal.

Its 9:30 pm right now.

Then it dawned on me that I am on ET and you are on PT.........duh


I need to start writing down when all the homies are going on vacation.
Can't keep up with everyone's vacation dates

    Good evening. We just spent the whole day at the zoo. All I can say is wow, that place is huge. B was really disappointed when she found out the zoo no longer has giant pandas. We were there from 9-6 and I know we didn’t see everything. I’ll add some pictures at the end of this post, and I have a special picture for Lynne tomorrow.

    Never heard of golfers rash? Are we talking heat rash?
    The wait times at Disney were incredible. A few rides got up to 120 minute wait times, but we were either able to get on them early in the day or had fast passes.
    I had never heard of golfer’s rash either. It is also called exercise induced Vasculitis. It is a heat rash that occurs on the ankles and calves. I first thought it was sunburn, but it didn’t hurt like a sunburn.

    Well, tomorrow we return home. :(

    That rash some peeps get on the lower legs you are calling "golfers rash, I always heard the phrase, Disney rash, for it.

    First two times I went to Disney, our legs broke out in red welts.
    Very itchy too.

    A person at the hotel said it was the Disney rash......walking on hot blacktop in the parks all day in the heat, makes many get the rash on the ankles and legs.

    Aww, that is so sad they don't have the pandas there anymore, Charade. We enjoyed seeing them, including a baby one. I agree the SD Zoo is huge. Safe travels today. Great pictures of the animals. The tiger is gorgeous. And baby giraffe.

    Well, it's a beautiful, sunny start to this Wednesday. Wonderful sun on the horizon, and now shining brightly higher in the sky. But no matter, we get that periods of heavy rain and a thunderstorm threat today. Crossing my fingers and toes, that rain does not come during the graduation ceremony. All stuffed into the gym is not my idea of fun. But our stadium does not have a roof, and no seats under cover. Sigh.

    And a quick commute was appreciated. But not the cool air I felt. 57 said the car. Oh, not a summer day, with the afternoon high predicted to be 76.

    So, 408535 Why yes it is. Wednesday is the middle of many homies' work week, so get over this hump of a day, and why yes, 408536


    Have a wonderful, maybe even wacky, Wednesday homies.

    Good Morning homies. :wave2:


    :coffee:

    Haha, my DH would not want any party. It is Robo who’s planning DH party.

    Sock Hop theme is awesome, and I know you will have a fun filled event for his birthday, Robo.
    Mine would not want a party either. He is a very laid back guy who doesn’t like a lot of fuss, but wanted him to feel special on this milestone birthday.

    Good morning all!! I'm very behind here. Haven't been in the mood to be on the DIS much. Joe has some health issues we're dealing with and was briefly hospitalized this week. He sees a cardiologist this week so hopefully we will get some more news on his condition.
    Patty I’am so sorry to hear Joe was in hospital. I know how frightening that can be. I’am sending healing prayers his way and lots of mummy dust. I know as a spouse this is very frightening for you also. Hope you get good news from cardiologist :hug:


    In last few weeks there have been three alligators, one over five feet, found & hauled away in the area. I assume they were brought back as souvenirs from FL, then got ‘too much’ to handle. The five foot one could’ve done some damage. Don’t even want to think about the 15 foot anaconda that escaped from a truck transporting it south of here in Morgantown,WV. Last they saw it was slithering up a tree and vanished. Eek
    Wow.....:scared1:....alligators and anacondas.....what are people thinking by keeping these exotic dangerous animals.

    And just because I'm missing him horribly
    He is so cute.


    At least when I opened up this thread, the porn site did not come up
    Yep, that would be a shocking post to see first thing in the morning :eek:

    Galaxy’s Edge was pretty cool.
    Cool pictures of Galaxy’s Edge.


    But, time for another glass of wine and some nice chatter......
    Schumi so glad to hear you and your mom are having a great time.


    Hi to mac, Carole, Lynne, keisha, Robo, Bobbie, Charade, Sue, pooh, pumpkin and all our homies reading along.
    Hey! Tink hope all is well with you and your family.


    Dr death should be able to give me an inkling as to what’s going on this time with my bridge...oooh, i can’t wait - not.
    Sending good wishes your way and mummy dust for your dental issues.


    Good evening. Potatoes roasting on the bbq. Salad made. Waiting on daughter to get home from work to throw chicken on bbq. Have it sitting in Adobo seasoning I bring home from Florida!
    When I read the posts of everyone and their delicious meals you, Schumi, Keisha, Monykalyn and others I realize we have a lot of good cooks here on the Sans thread for sure. Your dinner sounded so good.

    We just spent the whole day at the zoo
    I love your picture of the lion.

    Well party planning is coming along. It’s one of those situations I think that was meant to be. Since I had the conversation with my sister last Thursday I have settled the event space, catering, Dj and someone to make invitations. The party is 7 weeks away. Now I need to work on decorations, cake design, hotel brunch for out of town guests and party favors.

    Just hope I can keep everything a secret until he walks into party that day.

    Finding any local 1950’s party decorations is non existent here. So all of it will have to be ordered. On ward and upward.

    Have a great Wednesday everyone.

    Robo, hope you are feeling well. Sounds like the party is well underway, and so much fun planed. You are so nice to think of others in having bunch and some goodie bags. Yeah, unless I look at some of our party stores, the 50's decor is not that prevalent. I am sure whatever you order, will be fun, and nice.

    Okay, sweater on, and some more tea. Hoping Robo is enjoying her coffee in her HHN cup.

    Yep! Long days walking on the blacktop, heat, does it to me every time. And swelling. Didn’t used to back in the early days, but guess age plays a factor maybe cause happens now all the time. Ugh.

    Hi, ya homies.

    Having a hard time shaking the blues with the adult kids and the grand being back home. Their goal is to eventually be able to move out here....I do so hope they're able to make it happen!

    @schumigirl So glad you weren't in the city when the helicopter crashed! Yikes!

    Hope everyone is having a great week.

    I get the rash all over my lower legs, not just calves, front too, lucky me! Safe travels home. Great zoo pics.
    I think it takes us longer to adjust coming from home to the east coast. When going to the parks for opening, it’s brutal having to get up at 6am which to us is 3am pacific time!

    Robo sounds like you got it all handled. Are you going to wear poodle skirts?
    I had to make my daughter a poodle skirt once (well, with a lot of help from a friend who sews lol) for her Spring Musical at Elementary school. It was the upper grades who did most of the performances. That year they had an amazing amount of talented students. It was a stand out performance. And the principal and 2 staff were the Blues Brothers. Hilarious.

    Evening all........

    Checking in from our last night on Long Island......

    Had an absolute blast with mum and our family out here.......apart from Monday and Tuesday mornings where weather wasn’t fun, we’ve had some beautiful sunshine and heat and enjoyed every second. Spending time with my cousins and aunt has been fabulous.

    Enjoyed the City, and enjoyed going back in to see Come from Away......what a show!!! I cried like a baby. We owe huge thanks to friend of a friend who made it possible.

    Enjoyed Port Jeff today and just hanging out there with my cousin while mum and aunt chatted their day away......

    Will pack in the morning, have early lunch then the terminal we fly out from has The Palm, so we’ll eat there in case food on plane isn’t suitable for mum.

    So looking forward to seeing my guys on Friday.......we take off 10pm NY time tomorrow night, and we land 10am UK time.......have FaceTimed them a few times.....but can’t wait to see them both. Kyle has three days off this week so will drive with his dad to come get us.

    But, hope everyone’s good........will need to catch up on all I’ve missed while I’ve been in NY........

    Catch youse guys soon.........:wave2:

    82 days till we’re back in Orlando.........:cheer2:

    Time just flys by! Glad to hear you had a nice family trip. Seeing Come From Away on Broadway is extra special! Glad you enjoyed it. Face Time is a wonderful thing isn’t it! Safe travels home.

    Hot hot hot day today. At 5pm it was 88f in the shade. Don’t know what it was in the sunshine! Hot! And a tad muggy. Unusual for the west coast. We don’t usually get much humidity like the east.
    Went out for sushi dinner, it was our anniversary, 38!
    Tomorrow going to visit a friend in hospital.
