Good luck!

I'd love to hit a final on a $1k Square... but I don't think I'd ever pull the trigger to buy one unless I was splitting it with about 20 people, and by then the payday is a little bit less impressive.

He is retired and living it up!

Have to take a zero off the end to get to my limit, which I know is higher than a lot of peoples but I do like to gamble a bit.

I would love to take you up on that offer, but I doubt I have the budget space to fit in the cost of the flight and park tix. Unless... maybe I can forego the two dental bridges and wisdom tooth extraction to help pay for the trip.

I will talk to DW about the possibility, though.
It's only teeth. They make fake ones for when the others don't work. On that subject, sent the final payment for DS invisaligns in this month. Now DD need to be evaluated.

I have 5-5. I guess I may as well not even watch.

You should offer some side bets on whether or not those scores will happen. You might be able to make a few bucks with the right odds.

Hey guys, I don't know if any of you have watched this guys Disney videos before but they are really well done. They are a family from the UK and this is about the 13th trip that they have done, mostly to WDW. She has been on the Mom's panel for a couple of years now.

This is part one of their Christmas trip and he just posted it today. https://www.youtube.com/watch?featur...v=uS08wBFsINM#!

Forget to mention that on a couple of the earlier trips, he has some entertaining "drinking around the world" episodes.

Is there any doubt why? You can put me on the payroll, fly me to Hawaii, and I'll carry your luggage up to the room. Also, when you buy a round of alcohol for yourself and me, I'll even walk over to the bar and get it. I am an invaluable team member.

We are done paying on expander and still waiting for adult teeth to fall in place. (Baby teeth pulled). When I asked about braces, he just said we needed to wait. I really like this orthodontist, if you can say that. We paid off the thing over a year ago, he still had monthly or every other month appointments to see how things were progressing, and he isn't trying to upsale anything. Still did X-rays and no additional charge.

Well I survived my shift today after a night from Beverly on call!!! When we went in the second time last night the lady on call with me was a basket case and had cried the whole way in because she was afraid. She had mascara all the way down her face and on her chin. She looked like a Tammy Fay Baker throwback ...I didnt tell her what she looked like... I just let her walk around like...it gave me enjoyment amongst the strife
