We went to Disney when our kids were 5 and 7 and ended up at Golden Corral one day for lunch. We had a so-so lunch which the kids thought was just fabulous, of course, and near the end of our meal an elderly gentleman approached our table. I was concerned something was wrong. He actually wanted to THANK us for having children that behaved, ate quietly, and didn't run around and throw food everywhere. I thanked him, but also said there was no need to congratulate us or them for being civilized human beings. It's a shame when people come to expect bad parenting and unruly hellbeast children. I imagine in a place like that, where most of the people are tourists (and have had long days at the parks), the worst can come out, and parents might tend to be lax in correcting their kids. It made me feel bad for the locals who have to deal with that.

We haven't been to a Golden Corral since.

38 days for us - I didn't realize it was so close! I am loving this "last minute" trip planning. We usually go on cruises and book a year out during a sale.

Oh no!!!!!!
That sucks doubly. Without your phone and never getting it back.

I have a little over two months, but less than two and a half months. Woohoo!! I'm super excited. I won't be at US until Sept 26, but I'm still excited nonetheless.

Ouch! I only know of 1 person that actually tracked her phone down and took it back from the crook. Police were shocked that she actually got it back. I hope you have a better day today!

Hi all! Counting or not counting the days to our trip. 6 more weeks. Not that I wish my life away, but it is getting closer.

Hi Mac, it's so cold in the inside today I need that cup of coffee now! Weather is so cooperating now, no high humidity for the week-end, but will be much higher next week. Ah, summer.

Happy Take Out the Trash Day Mac

I knocked off a cap two weeks ago, dentist finally returned to office. Turns out I also took out good portion of tooth next to it, sigh. Round two set on the calendar, least i'm still numb. Long as it's done before October i'm good.

I would rather ski naked down Mount Everest waving a purple feather boa than vacation with him....he`s not nice. I spend as little time with him as possible....but I really like my friend, so no couples nights out with them as my DH won`t spend any time with him either....and my DH could find something nice to say about anyone!!!

talk about tag fodder

OMG not sure of ur provider but if AT&T can use one of those gophones and stick in a 'real' SIM card (they'll give u another once u report it lost/stolen) vs the one that comes with the throwaway.

Out of money right now, so have to wait till payday. Tried using "Find My iPhone" but since everyone knows about it now, they turned off the phone so I can't find it, or wipe the memory. But I already blocked it from being able to be used on the AT&T network
