Well I probably cheated. It was common for me to have a business trip to Orlando so I'd bring the family and tack on 3 days to spend money on the mouse. Sometimes twice a year.

Only made a few visits here that were totally 'pleasure' trips like this visit.

Shockingly expensive. $45 to park. $175 for lunch and nearly $250 for dinner. $3.50 for a bottle of water (but I am a cheap bastard and refilled my water bottle at a water fountain ) Several snacks. Lots of alcohol (and I found out today that Melen could easily drink me under the table) 4 bags of souvenirs. And the cost just to get into the park where they do a credit check to make sure you can actually pay for the tickets!!!

That's what I remember!!!! The last couple of times we went there it was a full "team" trip, 11 of us. You can imagine what that cost and it's one of the reasons I said, "Never again". Not just Disney World. Think of all the other theme parks that just HAD to be visited. Struth!!!!!

I was up early making breakfast for myself and Aimee.
Made a bunch of pancakes for the freezer too.
Once I get going I can't stop.
I like flipping them.

Have you ever whipped in a bit of apple sauce especially chunky into the batter? Makes for a tasty experience...


Need to power wash the north side of the house before the cooler weather blows in. Haven't used it for awhile and due to mud wasps getting it up and running has turned into a major ordeal to say the least. They have plugged up every orifice the could find to crawl into with mud and insects. In the wand there was a six inch 3/8th pipe packed slam full. Now that I've about done the cleaning and the prep work I'm left a wondering if I've got the steam left to run it and clean up and pack it away again... Oh well alls well ends well...

No, Bamby I've never put it in the batter, but I've used warm applesauce in place of syrup.

It's storming outside. I hit the gym this morning. Then did physio after lunch. Now a routine appointment with the family doctor. Then an appointment with our worker regarding future plans for our foster daughter. Chances are we MAY have the option of adopting her. Here she is.

At the age of 72 I have been hoodwinked into Six Flags only twice. Disney Land or Disney world, NEVER!

The Wife and son went several times. Now with the Grandchildren, She has gone at least five times.
And then there is Hershey Park right on the way to Grandma's house!!!!!!

Somehow, I managed to miss that one as well.

See the pattern here?

I don't care for theme parks.

Thanks. We've already been pretty much told she's not going anywhere and will be with us until she's an adult. But in the interest of having a permanent family for her to call her own, it's best to look at adoption.

Having worked in the field before my accident, I have first hand experience with this and have seen many kids bounce from home to home till they are 18 then all of a sudden a kid with no sense of belonging and not even done high school is told they no longer have a home. It's a sad reality of the child welfare system. I remember what it was like taking the kids around when they were 17 and showing them where the homeless shelter was, where the soup kitchen was, how and where to apply for welfare etc. That was a part of my job I hated. Then to see their names randomly appear in the wanted listings for various crimes.

The last time I had any real illness was last year at the Halloween parade in Defiance.
I should say I felt it coming on that night during.
That's when we were all sick.
I've drowned myself in several cups of hot tea, v8 juice and 500mg of C with rosehips.
That's my self treatment unless it turns into something else.
They were very understanding when I called off work.
Thank God.

The wife, son, grandchildren arrived last night about 2:30 AM. A full U-Hall truck and a trailer with the Chrysler SRT Crossfire.
Got to bed by 4:00
This morning is getting things out of the way in Dad's house so I can go to work and they can unload the truck. I'm betting I will be doing the heavy stuff tonite when I get home.

So sorry to hear you are down with something. Tea is fine but I find Scotch whisky works well. I drink it 'till I feel better. Sometimes it works sometimes not but,,;If you end up drinking enough it don't matter. Nuthin' matters.

Take care pg.

Today's plan so far was a trip to the orthodontist for two of the kids first thing. Then do some yard work in the snow/rain. Got the snowblower taken out and both riding and push mowers put away. Also rolled up a couple tents that had been drying in the garage since the last scout trip. I also packed up for this weekend's scout trip. We had planned on canoeing in to our cabin on a lake 30 miles away. But with the snow and rain, a canoe trip may not be the best option. So I'm in discussions with the other leaders to come up with a plan b.
