Have u checked the free crowd calendars? UT has a good one

It’s been a few years but all of may is still pretty slow all things considering. Many northern schools not out un till 3rd week of month

Imo Mother’s Day proper & that same weekend seem busier at U vs WDW.

always left for home the Sunday prior to Memorial Day, can’t say it seemed Out of the ordinary. Nothing like 4th of July there which is packed
We haven't stayed this late in May before, we don't leave till the 27th this year....but we`ll have done the parks a lot by then, so if it is busy, won`t be so bad.

Mother`s Day last year we didn't go to the park that day, but folks said it was indeed busy. Overall we found the crowds to be not bad at all as you said. Weekends, yes, but most days were ok.


mrose….the kids will be fine......get there early and a park to park ticket...…..tell them to do the train both ways if the wait isn't too long, it`s different in both directions.





We have the calm before the storm today I think......although the sky this morning was flame red and quite alarming to look at.....beautiful though. Sea is incredibly calm too.

Grocery delivery has arrived....spot on 8am. Although delivery driver was a grumpy one......lol......I was sunshine on a plate which seemed to irritate him.......:rotfl:

Heading out just for the sake of it while the weather is a little calm......need some flour and baking powder and I`m sure we`ll pick up a few non essential, but nice things too!!!

Hope everyone has a lovely Friday.....whatever you may be doing.......

A very happy anniversary to Keisha! Woot for the trip this weekend.

Sue, so nice to hear from ya. Yes, we are lab fans. Both my labs were yellow too. And both loved the water. Yeah, my male was smart too, he learned we had a step on the pedal to open the trash can, in our kitchen. Sometimes in the evenings, we’d hear a click then a thunk. Seems he knew to step on the pedal, but he didn’t know you keep it there, so the thunk was the lid hitting his head. Nice to have your ADRs done. Woot! For a summer visit.


MonyK, woot! All those miles and French fun. Yeah, much colder today. And yeah, since we have forced air heat, our dogs learned to pick a vent and flop in front of it, when the heater was running.

Yay, McK is another PA homie. I live just South of you, and close to the City. Last year, we had passes to Dorney, and my niece lives in the mountains too, near the Coal mining towns. So I am up your way, at times.

Well, I was up with DH, but hey, long shower and wash in the washer, again. At least I can be productive, even though no late sleeping for me today. Why?

Yep,

To all the homies. And yeah,

    Well, seems my husband ignored my request for no flowers on Valentine`s Day.......❤

    Sorry for the poor quality....took it on Tom`s phone......but I was surprised.....24 red roses. I should have kept them in the display box they came in as they looked amazing, now just another bunch of flowers.....I`ll never make a flower arranger!

    Thanks for the nice anniversary wishes, much appreciated.
    Keisha no way! Wow! Stones tix! Lucky ducky! They have only one stop in Canada, and happens to be here! But I’d probably have to sell my first born to buy 2 tix. :sad: Such a great band. And Beatles, really too many to list.
    When is your WDW trip? I just made my ADRs too. I haven’t made one for Trails End, but want to just have to figure out what day. Love going over to the Fort.
    PS- I loved Paul lol!
    For the August trip we leave on 6th or 7th for cruise to take GD to ‘new & improved’ coco cay. Then, will finish out the next week at WLV. Hope to snag the DVC member thing at TL for Tuesday night & keep checking to see if MNSSHP first date will indeed be on the 13th. It’s sold out the last two years, need to be quick on the mark lol. Since we’ll have the chicken at HDD, not sure if we will do TE this time. I was surprised to see they now offer a brunch on the weekends though that has most of the dinner favs i enjoy there. Just can’t work it in so far with our dates.

    The stones held back the good seats the first & second presale days here. Bought the best they had & still wasn’t club or section I’d normally pick. Beggars (banquet :) can’t be choosey, happy to go.

    I forget to chime in to McK that i’m On the ‘good side’ of the state :). Jk. Same sort of location, up on mountain ridge where we get snow & keep it for ages the way the sun (doesn’t) hit much in the winter. Same thing. Family always comments they have little to no snow until they turn off the main road & up they go. Three councilmen on my street, at least we are among the first to get salted & plowed :)

    Good morning everyone. I am still fighting this stupid cold. The coughing kept me up most of the night. Thankfully I don't have anything that I need to do this weekend except go pay dh's dental bill.

    MRose - I wish I could offer some advice, but with Universal I don't do much planning. I mostly do things as the mood hits me. I'm much more of a planner when it comes to Disney.

    MonyK - Wow, France. Will this be a graduation trip? I would love to spend a birthday at Disney. Any Disney park would be good.

    Keisha - Happy anniversary.

    Schumi - The roses look great.

    Starting to feel really sleepy, so I will try to take a nap. Hello to all those I missed.

    Lynne, so funny about your lab and the garbage can! I sure miss mine.

    Schumi nice flowers!

    The house is quiet, 6:50 AM and nobody’s up yet. I’ve been up since 3:00 sad to say :sad2: Just couldn’t get back to sleep.

    Dix hang in there.

    Keisha Happy Anniversary!

    Sounds like we’re there the same time! I love WL, that’s where we stayed our last WDW trip. Trails End has had a brunch for a few years. We went to the brunch once, was very good.

    Why do I live where the air hurts my face?
    I ask myself that quite a bit in the winter too! It's 19 degrees now, and we woke up to snow on the ground.
    ummmm I do that on a semi regular basis- hawks love the chickens! But the hens seem to instinctively know to stay under cover in the morning when they are really out hunting. Well most of them- did have one we nicknamed Hei Hei as she would just stand there looking up as hawks swooped by her - and one nearly got her one day- that was the first time the neighbors saw crazy broom lady!
    LOL! Poor Hei Hei! My dogs don't understand the "threat from above", so we have to keep an eye out all the time.
    Or if I can find the label of the white I got at Wine Bar George last month...
    We LOVE WBG! Don't laugh, but I took pictures of the wine menu with our selections and the bottles from the flight we orderd, so I can find them outside of Disney. I found some of them on wine.com. I'm a dry red person.
    MRose we haven’t met! we live in the Pacific NW, lots of Hawks & Eagles here. When I’m outside in the yard with my 2 small dogs (yorkiepoo & Cocker spaniel) I’m always on the lookout for eagles. We have a bird feeder in the backyard and last summer I just happened to glance out the window and notice a rat was in the bird feeder but not for long. So quick and silent some type of hawk swooped in and that was that.
    We also have coyotes ugh. Lots of cats go missing here. I saw one of those spike vests on a dog here. No bristles though. Just spikes.
    Wow! I'm glad it got the rat, though. Yuck! We kayak on a really beautiful lake where there are many raptors and one time we had an eagle fly over us with a fish in it's talons! It was really neat to see. We used to take our dogs with us but kept them very, very close there and haven't taken them back since we saw that.
    There are a lot coyotes in the woods just north of us that will take cats and small dogs too. If they were closer to us I would probably invest in a spiked doggie coat!
    With all the talk of raptors, this afternoon coming back from my appt I passed 2 bald eagles in the trees, with their wings out drying off from the morning rain. What a sight!
    They are very impressive! And BIG!
    mrose….the kids will be fine......get there early and a park to park ticket...…..tell them to do the train both ways if the wait isn't too long, it`s different in both directions.
    Good to know about the train! Thanks!
    The Valentine flowers are beautiful!
    Yay, McK is another PA homie. I live just South of you, and close to the City. Last year, we had passes to Dorney, and my niece lives in the mountains too, near the Coal mining towns. So I am up your way, at times.
    We're pretty close. We have family all over PA, NY and NJ area so I'm down your way at times too!
    I forget to chime in to McK that i’m On the ‘good side’ of the state :). Jk
    LOL! So you get the Great Lakes effect? Ugh! So....Much....Snow there! Even though I live closer to the Philly side, I am a Penguins fan.... so we can be friends! :thumbsup2

    MRose - I wish I could offer some advice, but with Universal I don't do much planning. I mostly do things as the mood hits me. I'm much more of a planner when it comes to Disney.
    I'm a Disney planner at heart, but we do kind of go with the flow anymore.
    Hope you feel better soon!

    MRose, yes those eagles were big, esp with their wings spread out to dry! Wish I could’ve pulled over to snap a pic.
    I‘ve paddled too, on our ocean inlet and watched an eagle swoop down to the water and come up with a fish. We just sat there in awe! Impressive sight.

    Wow...another day to be able to stop in :wave2:

    All my work is done for the day. Although I did sneak a text book into my office and I will be studying this afternoon, so I can enjoy my evening with a beverage :drinking1 and maybe even the TV remote lol

    @Monykalyn ...I also ask myself why I live where the air hurts my face. It is just cold, windy and gross here. I'm struggling to find some positive about it today. I'm wishing for warm tropical air, sun and sand right about now. And WOW...France....how fun!!!! That is on my bucket list to visit there. My aunt and her family live there. So we would have personal tour guides and they will take us anywhere in Europe that we want to go. My sisters and I are hoping we can pool enough money to help our parents go there, so Mom could visit her sister.
    @schumigirl ...He is a keeper!!! I love fresh flowers, even if they never last long and seem like a waste of money. Stay warm. I'm sure your like me and counting down the days until the weather starts to turn and spring starts to arrive. For me, it can't come fast enough. Although I am loving the fact that they days are finally starting to get longer faster now.

    @keishashadow Happy Anniversary!!! I hope you get to do a little something special for it.

    @Charade67 That cold/flu certainly does linger this year. I know that one that is floating around here is particularly bad this year. You feel deathly ill for 3-4 days, but then after the cough lingers for weeks. Hopefully it doesn't last too long.

    @Sue M I'm wishing I could join you in Mexico. Think of all of us freezing here while your enjoying the warm tropical air, sunshine, sand and water. Have a beverage for me please :beach:

    Well, I'm not sure what is on the menu for supper tonight...it might be a romantic pizza and wings :rotfl: ordered in tonight. - guess we will see how I feel when I get home. It's just cold, gross, windy. overcast and COLD here and getting colder each hour. I always question where we live in February lol.

    Guess I should open the text book and work on some of my assignments to hand in.

    Have a great day Lynne, Mac, DisneyPro, Mackenna and anyone else I might have missed!!!!

    Pumpkin, I do love flowers, and yes, every week I get a big bunch of fresh ones......they usually last the week sometimes longer, but it’s a little thing I’ve always loved. Yes, waiting for the better weather to hit us.....think we’ll be waiting a while. Although I imagine yours is so much worse!!

    Enjoy that adult beverage tonight and pizza and wings sounds just about perfect to share......and have a good weekend.....




    Beginning to think the weathermen are making up the storm heading our way......think they really just mean winter......it’s very calm here and not cold.

    I guess tomorrow will be a different story. I love it when I know I don’t need to go out for a couple of days.......

    Enjoying a glass or three of champagne......🍾🍾🍾 well, it is Valentine‘s Day......💜

    Yep grad trip. She asked for it 4 years ago. Will have to start saving for Tokyo as soon as we get back if that is to ever happen in 4 years for the boy's grad trip.
    Don't laugh, but I took pictures of the wine menu with our selections and the bottles from the flight we orderd, so I can find them outside of Disney
    Idid too!-need to find the pick of the label of the bottle I really liked.

    We are staying in Marne-la-vallee the first week, in the Marriott there. Supposedly it is where Disney briefly thought about a DVC. Since we have a timeshare it cost very little to trade into that resort. Our week timeshare was gifted to us many many years ago, and maintenance fees are still less than a week at any of the resorts so works for us. The last 5 days haven't quite decide yet-somewhere in VRBO apt probably closer to city.

    Happy Anniversary K and Mr K!

    Our August dates will be around week of the 16th. School starts the 24th this year. Florida DD has her convention this year at the Contemporary on the 20-23 or 24th and should get convention rates for extra days. The only uncertainty right now is when college/grad school starts and when we can help the girls move.

    Enough here to form a “the air hurts my face” club lol

    Got to CF around 11:30 am. Got the last table. Host told me there were so many people line up out the door at 10:30 am, they opened early lol. Got my usual Evelyn’s pasta & DH went with spicey chicken/shrimp. Brought at least half of it home along with a Carmel & oreo slice. My DS who will be holding down the fort while we are away is thrilled. Started the weekend early with a delish strawberrry lemon drop, cheers :)

    Great minds think alike! :thumbsup2

    Hubby works tonight so we went out on a lunch date for steak. I've just been invited to go out later with my daughter, her boyfriend, his mother and sister. (her husband also works tonight) They already have a reservation at a local bar/restaurant with live band tonight. So much for not going out today.... LOL!

    I'll check in later... Hope everyone is having a great day!

    Ah, errands done, time for dinner for older one and I. DH went to be with his DM, and little one is still at school. He wanted burgers, so bought some fresh ground sirloin, and that is what we are going to eat.

    Sadly, only flowers were enjoyed in the house before older one was born. By age 3, no more live plants or cut flowers allowed in the house. But over the years, don’t mind, and flowers and plants stay in my office. And I enjoy going to the Flower Show each year.

    Hope all enjoy this Friday of Loving Thoughts.

    Monyk.....Marne La Vallee is an ideal place to stay if you’re not in the City Centre.....only about 30 minutes into Paris itself.....it’ll be lovely I’m sure.


    Keisha.......are folks wary because of the virus?? Fiffle Faffle......we cant hibernate and not live.....think I’d prefer your DH dish.....I’m not a big pasta fan, but spicy dishes.....yes please......::yes:: Drink looks good too!!

    If I miss you tomorrow have a safe journey down and have a wonderful trip.......:wave2:


    mrose......have a lovely evening out.....surprise nights are so much fun!!!


    Lynne just popped in.......:wave2:




    Our Valentines evening is almost over.......enjoyed our little picnic buffet in dining room.....candles, nice music, good food and champagne and lots of chatter....

    Did get a call from a friend to tell me they are now finally getting dual citizenship in America..... Long overdue.....they live in California and love their life out there.......she asked if we’re ever going to make it out there......maybe one day.....

    Actually been a lovely Valentines Day for all my complaining about commercialism.......

    Have a good one.........

    Happy Anniversary, @keishashadow! Also, happy late VDay all! Yesterday decided to hang with one of my good friends all day.

    Thanks @Sue M for the well wishes!

    @Charade67 Hope you feel better soon! Also, I won’t tease you for The Monkees. If anything my mom would. She goes, “Really you like this?” When I listen to them, or just Dave Jones. I guess, because maybe it’s more “cheesier” than other things. Also, I think it’s genuine surprise as well. A different band/singer, but I also like to randomly sing “I Think I Love You” to my parents and they’re like, “Oh, God.” But I also had it stuck in my head I think that time. :laughing:

    Also, those are some sweet roses and good looking eats!

    Hope everyone has a good weekend!
