Bad News!!!!
New TR started today.

Worse news…
This one ain’t about Disney either.
But you’ll find it right here just the same…




I should’a taken that left in Albuquerque

(a TR that won’t make it to Disney)





Oh, one more thing… I may actually be getting back to WDW this summer.
If that does occur, I promise that there will finally be an new GoofyIsAsGoofyDoes TR that is actually about a trip to Disney coming up in the late Summer or early fall.

Something else for you to ignore, but it will at least be something Disney that you can ignore.




We now return you to the reply that I slould’a made a good while back.

Well, if it makes you feel any better, I missed where you responded back as well and am only just now getting around to answering back.

Seems tom me that you’ve been quite busy. First off, congrats of running the Half Marathon at Disney this past weekend. I’m looking forward to reading (hopefully) several TRs based on events of the First DDCC. I know that work has been rough for you lately, so you’re going to have a hard time finishing the current one much less starting a new on, but just the same, I’m looking forward to both events.

Thanks!

Don’t worry, it quite foreign to nine out of ten folks (actually its more like nineteen out of twenty).

Yep… that’s far more normal (and we’re aware of that fact).
You’re in very good company there

But at our school, the first half of the ball game was the opening act and the second half was when you’d hit the concession stands. We’re not normal in any way (and we’re quite aware of that as well). This past year there was nearly equal interest in both though and I hope that trend continues in the future.

But around the middle of March, the city council and a few guys from the Dept of Public Works dress up as leprechauns and put up new signs on the outskirts of town welcoming everyone to New Dublin. (Yes, they're big on their Irish up there. And the green beer that comes with it.) Anyway, there is an old green hearse known as Finnegan's Wake that makes it's way down the parade route, following whatever band or elected official or whatever position it is in the lineup. The latches on the back door are faulty, so whenever it speeds up, the casket rams into the door, knocking it open, and the casket ends up laying in the middle of the street. The lepreachaun-clad driver and his assistant jump out of the car and scramble around to re-load the dearly departed. Meanwhile there is much rejoicing and celebration by the parade goers that were witness to the events. Rinse, lather and repeat on the next block.

Most Excellent!

Where else could we possibly get entertainment of that caliber.

And thanks again for the thanks, and more importantly, thanks again for following along.

Actually Max recently received the acceptance letter from the University that is his first choice. Now we just need to get through the audition for acceptance into the School of Music (and then figure out how to pay for it).

Late to the party but...

I'm not even sure how I got here but I just want to say how much I thoroughly enjoyed reading this. You sucked me in and I was with you all the way to the end.

Good job all around!

Wow!!

I ain’t sure how you got here either, but I’m glad to hear from you.
Read the whole thing you say? That… took some doing.
Thanks for the kind words

I’m sure that you’ll find even better work to read on the official Trip Report Forum as well.

http://www.disboards.com/forumdisplay.php?f=18

There are some very fine storytellers around here (and when you find those that you like, make sure to go read some of their older works as well… some really good stuff back there)

Thanks again and welcome to the DIS Boards!

Thanks for the welcome. I've been all over the board and read lots of trip reports. Your's are the first ones I've made a point to read them all.

Of course, it may be because we're "neighbors". (I'm about a half hour north of Charlotte... just off I-77, too.)

I did notice the location there. There aren’t near enough Carolinians on these here boards so I’m glad to see you roaming around these parts. You say you’ve read more than one of my TR’s… I might have to question your sanity but that’s a commodity I pretty much lack in the first place so who am I to question other folks mental faculties.

Thanks again for reading along and for taking the time to holler out.
And if you’ve completely lost you mind… I intend to start up a new TR sometime this week. It’ll be based on our June trip to the World and even to “that other pace whose name I must not speak”. You’re welcome to follow along on that one as well.


And as for everyone one else who may still be getting notifications from this old TR, you may consider that a warning as well.
