Too many times today was I gazing out that window with the southern exposure thinking about my happy place and wanting to just "take a quick peek" at the DIS! Yeah, right, quick peek my eye. Normal customer visits are not like this one... ugh, usually meet and greets, touring property, and getting a feel for what they can do financially. This one involves a sale/leaseback transaction and multi-million dollar loss on their part. I need a vacation... Oct trip to WDW can't come soon enough!

WELCOME!! to our new Dad's... glad you joined us.

Anxious to hear that Fed is back, safe and sound...
I know the feeling all too well. I spend a good part of every day reviewing quotes, drawings and getting beat down on prices. My territory is the southeastern US which includes you guessed it Orlando. Nothing better than getting to go to Disney on the companies dime. Which is what I did last fall. While a the food and wine festival I took a picture of the ball while listening to the Beach Boys. I keep the picture as my background and when someone asks me what it is, I tell them it is my happy place
Countdown widget say 201 days 3 hrs 56 min. till WDW/AKV

Just in case anyone is wondering, here I am smiling because I'm getting ready to leave.... Not my helo in the background, that's a Brit Bird getting ready to leave...



And smiling before being cancelled the day before Notice the dust in the background!




All smiles Airborn!!!!




Thanks for the well wishes guys, it was a long tour, lots of good, some bad...all in all, I did my job and am set to arrive home safely (satisfying the first rule of Law Enforcement--go home alive)...

I'm beat, I'm going to sleep now

I am new to the DisBoard and DDC and am just starting to pick up on some of what has been happening. I now understand your tag line.
I am sure that I speak for every one when I say this.
FOR EVERYTHING YOU DO!!

I grew up a fan of old time hockey and the original six. I have a large framed picture hanging over my fire place of Bobby Orr scoring the game winning goal in the 1970 Stanley Cups finals to bring home the cup. I have played, seen and loved hockey my whole life.
After moving to Northwest PA in the late 80's I have been fortunate enough to see what Mario has done both on and off the ice and now Sid. I have grown to not only enjoy watching them, but I have started pulling for them as well. Unless of course they are playing the Bruin's. I agree Pens over Sens in five.

Enjoy the Stanley Cup playoffs

This was from a "Penguins at your Service" benefit dinner for Cystic Fibrosis. It's a great evening and the guys are all so gracious. This was two years ago and Sid was awesome. I even handed him my cell phone to talk with my son! What a kick that was!! I got home and he wanted to know who that really was on the phone...he didn't believe me! He talked to Marc Andre Fleury and Mark Recchi, too!

I will definitely go see fantasmic in November! Oh the shame of not having seen it yet.
