Thanks for organizing this for everyone. I'm sure it wasn't an easy task!

My train ride is only a few minutes, so I don't read then. The history of the canal is very interesting! It's not a quick read, but I'm really enjoying it.

I'm hoping that I actually have some time to read this weekend. I need some time to just relax after a stressful couple of days. We had a "break in" at home the other night. I woke up at 3 AM because I heard a strange noise. I woke DH and told him I thought someone was in the apartment. He said "That's nice" and rolled over and went back to sleep.

After three attempts at waking him, and hearing more noise, I got up just in time to hear someone yelling "It's the Police...are you alright in there?" and see flashlights shining in my dining area". This time I dragged DH out of bed and told him that there were police officers in our kitchen, and maybe we should see what they want?

They asked if we were alright, which I wasn't because I was awakened at 3 AM by noises in my apartment, and if we were alone. I told them that I was pretty sure we were alone, but they were more than welcome to look around, and if they found someone, they could have him!

They looked in my bathroom and my art/sewing room while DH turned on the lights in the living room, and there, sound asleep on the couch, was a complete stranger! From what the police officers told us, he had been banging on the door downstairs, and the lady in there told him to go home and sober up. When she heard him manage to get our door open, she called the police.

He was a student at a local university, and had had a bit too much to drink--enough that he couldn't remember where he lived, or how old he was. He told the police that he was 26. When the officer said "I don't think so", he said "Well, how about 21?". When they finally got him to produce ID, he was 18, obviously underage. They finally got him up and got him to move his feet enough to get him out of my apartment. Other than being slightly shaken up by seeing this young man in my living room, there were no other problems, at least for us. The university has a "zero tolerance" policy for underage drinking and other quality of life issues, so I think this young person will be looking for another place to go to school!

That sounds terrifying! Glad everyone is okay though.

After much frustration (not to mention a couple of tears) the girl at SW (who was understanding but had her hands tied and couldn't help me) gave me their Customer Service number in Dallas and I called them. Took a little time but they were able to resolve the issue and I am one happy cruiser.
So again, I LUV SOUTHWEST AIRLINES!!
We love Southwest too! FE (bags) fly free Just wish they were in more airports.

I convinced him it was a bad idea (short port time, no cell phone communication, I don't want to miss my dive excursion.....) and convianced him to surprise her in Disneyland!

The plan is that he will be waiting in front of the castle so when we leave the Plaza Inn after breakfast, we will run into him there where he will propose! This way, we can spend the day in the parks celebrating together. He will surprise her with dinner at Napa Rose while we watched the kids and then surprise her with a room at the Grand Californian. The kids will come back with us to our hotel. We will met up on Sunday morning for breakfast and head to the port where he will see us off.

I bet my sister will have the whole wedding planned before we get off the ship!

So a question for disneyland vets: We have breakfast at the Plaza Inn before the park opens. How long would it take from when the park opens to get to the castle and how long would it take us from the Plaza Inn to the castle?
How wonderful!

Thanks.

A number of years ago, we were awakened by a guy staring into our bedroom from the bedroom door. I got up and scared them out. Fortunately, they only took stuff. But apparently they didn't get enough as they came back the next night for more. This time I was a bit closer to them as they went out the door.

My DW's purse was taken during the first visit and a woman who was a part of the crew that came into the house called her asking for money to get out of town. My wife said sure and set up a meeting place. Then she called police who showed up and arrested the group. The most important thing that was stolen was recovered - my DW's driver's license.

On a lighter note... The shuttle is parked about a mile from my house on its way to downtown LA. Here's a snap.

No my kids don't have fall break until the week of Thanksgiving. Dd and I go on Tuesdays or Thursdays when she doesn't have school. I have my MIL pick up the boys from school and dd and I leave DL around 2 and get home shortly after the boys do.

Thank you so much for the offer and enjoy DL.
I will take a ton of pics and it is my pleasure to do so!

Ordered our FE gifts today, now that we have final cabin count (and a couple extra just in case). We're very excited!
