That picture of your daughter is great! It really does explain the feeling we all get- everytime we enter the world. =)

Hello fellow Disney fanatics. This is my first attempt at a report so wish me luck. Here is my story.

The reason for the title is because this trip will consist of 8 goofs, all of who live in a community in southeast Louisiana known as “Bush, LA” hence BUSHwackers. This team consist of 6 grown-ups, some of who (like yours truly) refused to grow up and two little ones. Might be a reason we love Disney as much as we do.

I guess I should attempt to introduce you to the Bushwhacker team. Ok, let’s start with me, y-knot, this is my report so I make the rules, rite? I am David (how original were my parents) and I am 41, and like I said, refuse to grow up. I made 4 trips to the world as a youngster beginning in ’73 at the age of 7 and the last time in 85 at the age of 18. In ’85 Epcot was still new but I did not go to Epcot. We had too much fun at the MK in the few days that we were there we did not feel the urge to go see a “world’s fair”, after all, we just saw one in ’84 in New Orleans. The thing I think I miss most is 20,000 leagues under the sea. Enough about me, for now, more to come later.

DW, who is much, much older than I (she robbed the cradle) is 42. She is mother of two (DD23 & DD8) and works a “fulltime job”, in which she does not allow me to forget. Really, she is a very hard working medical professional and is a kinda neat freak. She is supper organized. When we are on vacation she is the one that will COMPLETELY unpack the suitcases and put all the clothes in the dressers and hang the “hang-ups” in the so called resort closet, me on the other hand, will be happy living out of the suit case with the dirty clothes lying on the floor in the corner of the bathroom. Last Jan was her first ever trip to the world. I really loved watching her walk down Main Street USA the first afternoon we arrived. When we got to the castle I asked her what she thought. The only thing she said is that it was not what she was expecting. I asked her what she expected, an amusement park? She replied…..”UHH……. I guess so.” I had attempted to talk her into DVC when we booked that trip but she kept saying she did not think she would want to vacation at Disney THAT much. Needless to say, we bought into DVC by May and she is already talking about adding more points soon. Woohoo, she is hooked. The closer we get to our trip this year, she is getting more and more excited. She is already packed and it is still 12 days out. More to come on my “cleaning-beauty bride”


The youngest of our part of the clan is DD8. She is definitely a “daddy’s girl”! She was born about 22 months POST – vasectomy. After a quick trip back to the doctor’s office, I found out that, in fact, I was not “shooting blanks”. The entire time DW was pregnant we referred to the baby as the “miracle baby”. This was early summer 1999 so I kept telling DW she was going to have the “miracle baby” as the "millennium baby". Well….our “miracle babe” was born on Christmas day. I took that as a sign that we were meant to have this blessing. She, too, went to Disney for the first time last year. I think I had more fun with her and her mom than they had themselves. Here is a pic of DD8 shortly after we arrived at, then, MGM.

Me & DD, I have no idea where. At Disney, somewhere.


I do have plenty of pix from our Jan 07 trip that I plan on posting, if it doesn't scare too many people. Not to worry, not many of me mostly of DD I will try to get some of the rest of the crew too.
I loved that restaurant! It's soo homey and cute and funny! It's one of my alltime FAVS!

Run-Away Honey-Do list

Run-Away Honey Do List


Yesterday was a HUGE honey-do day for me.


Just before I get DD off to school and DW off to work. DW, in her sweetest of sweet voices says to me… "Honey, since your are going to be in town to put my truck in the shop, can you do a few things for me???" I left the list on the counter for you to do while you are in town. Then gives me a BIG kiss and leaves out the door for work, “have a great day” she yells as she gets in MY truck, smiling as she drives away.



I noticed that it was rolled up. Not a big deal. I thought DD may have been playing with it and rolled it around something. After DW left for work, I picked it up to look at it but only held it with two fingers. The bottom of it dropped. No problem, OK. The problem was, it (the bottom of it) fell all the way to the floor and I still had the top of it in my hand. Worse yet, it didn’t stop there! It rolled all the way across the living room and halfway down the hall like a run-away roll of toilet paper in the stall of Walmart with no replacement, I had to run and dive on it to keep it from going out the door and down the steps. WHEW!


I was only gone for 8 days. How can there be so much to do? She must sit up at night thinking of things to keep me busy while she is “working a fulltime job” (One of her favorite things to inform me of).


I even took my laptop to town with me so I could attempt to catch up on my report. In case I had some down time. Yeah, like that was going to happen with THIS scroll.


I tell you this because I did not have a chance to post my next installment. Not that I have to. It looks like ya’ll were having fun without me.

I have become pretty efficient at getting in trouble (entertaining) without even tring.

I'll guess that I'll just sit back and

This should be one entertaining ride.
I hope it is entertaining. Only not at my expense.

We loved it too. I even got fussed at. Yes, I had my hands together with my chin resting on top of them, talking to DW after finishing the app (that is not included this year in DP) when "Mom" walked around the corner and said "GET YOUR ELBOWS OFF THE TABLE, YOUNG MAN". DD could not stop laughing. "Daddy got fussed at, Daddy got fussed at."

Hi DARuss and stacgirl!
Just had to come on over to your party! Enjoying it so far, can't wait to read more!

Maybe you should get your bodyguard to be a DISer too... then he could lurk here and toss certain people out of the club when they get too rowdy. Good luck keeping control!

S'ok, I love to read it... it gets so entertaining when they run away with TR's.

I love your honey do list!
I gave my dh one this morning! Right now he's in town shopping with my two youngest. I told him if we were going to be able to go out tonight I needed to get stuff done around the house. I just didn't mention I could do it in 15 minutes!
