    DDC XXXIV: The Original Home Of The DISDads!!!

    Very uncomfortable. there were conversations about cancelling, but in the end we all decided if you are smart and careful, the risk would be relatively low. They did cancel an offsite excursion and are only staying on the resort for the week.

    Canadian Buffoon's Semi-EPIC Vacation - 06/16 - The O Is Silent

    I had to post this here, since you had mentioned seeing this plane in one of your updates. DD19 left for the Dominican Republic Friday past. (Her and a few friends are enjoying a week on the beach while they are young and *think* they can afford it. We had a chat with her about being careful...

    DDC XXXIV: The Original Home Of The DISDads!!!

    Hey guys, I unplugged for a few days. Took Thursday and Friday off work, so it was nice to have a break from the office...sort of...see below. Lots to report on. DD11 had her grade 6 "leaving ceremony" Thursday morning. She's off to Junior High next year. I went through those years with on DD...

    DDC XXXIV: The Original Home Of The DISDads!!!

    Ah yes, the after grad party. I had a similar phone call last year. I wasn't exactly thrilled, but I've always told DD if she is stuck somewhere or in a situation where she needs help, just call. They refilled the AC and put dye in to see if they can trace a leak. Considering it was empty of...

    Let Your Fantasies & Dreams SET SAIL! March 2019 Western Caribbean TR *NEW* x3 6/23

    Thanks for the Father's Day shout out! I had a pretty good day, but mainly just relaxed and decided my treat was to not mow the lawn, which is what I would normally do on a weekend :p It's great to know that even if you don't want to do an excursion on a port day, you can still keep yourself...

    DDC XXXIV: The Original Home Of The DISDads!!!

    Bad news and bad news. The garage called. Both front and rear brakes are shot, $1100 to replace them all. Exhaust gasket is gone (I don't know what that is, but for $231 to replace it, I assume it does something of relative importance), and they haven't even got to the busted AC yet. Going to...

    DDC XXXIV: The Original Home Of The DISDads!!!

    Yeah...not sure any dealer does anything for free anymore. Maybe at an independent garage. It makes me wonder why I still bring it to the Toyota dealer. I've paid it off, it has no warranty left. I could probably get it done cheaper elsewhere. I guess I'm a creature of habit. The kids get...

    This Trip Report Is Under Refurbishment For Your Future Enjoyment (UPDATED 6/24 with bonus chapter)

    I did know, even before seeing Andy and pkondz replies. As a kid, I saw them play the Globetrotters many moons ago when they visited my hometown. It was a big deal at the time because well known entertainment (be it music or sports) rarely came this far north to smaller venues. I do enjoy...

    Canadian Buffoon's Semi-EPIC Vacation - 06/16 - The O Is Silent

    No, just the plain mac and cheese. I might like the sauce, but definitely not something my girls would go for.

    DDC XXXIV: The Original Home Of The DISDads!!!

    Morning gents. Brought my van into the garage this morning for regular maintenance but also to look at the busted AC. $250 just for "diagnostics" to figure out the problem, then repair cost on top of that, they will let me know the full amount of the damage. I try to remind myself that I paid...

    "When I went it was all lights, and music, and Mickey doin' his magic." — Aug. '18 Disneyversary TR

    Yay! It’s fun remembering this! It was great meeting both of you, and lucky that you had stopped for some pin trading or we probably wouldn’t have met. And yes, my sister in law lives near Lunnenberg, so I am sure I’ll be back in NS sometime. I’ve heard about this, but have no idea how to...

    The ABCs of An EPIC Girls' Trip! May, 2019- D is for: Dining on Devine Swine; A Mr. Paul Review (6/15)

    Your evening at Mr Paul looks wonderful. I would probably enjoy a meal there. I think it would be a little too high end for the ladies in my family though. Perhaps yet another thing to put on my solo trip list.

    Canadian Buffoon's Semi-EPIC Vacation - 06/16 - The O Is Silent

    I’ve heard this from a few people. I’ll presume it’s better than the march through traffic cone forest I had to endure back in August, but still a little disappointing. It’s not like you. It’s like you’re mingling with the commoners. I didn’t taste this myself but my girls had the one without...

    Canadian Buffoon's Semi-EPIC Vacation - 06/16 - The O Is Silent

    So you may have noticed in my replies to the DDC thread or a couple other trip reports that after my business trip to Houston I struggled to catch up with work and fell way behind on my DIS reading. Your TR has that extra layer of complication because I can’t see your pictures at work (during...

    The ABCs of An EPIC Girls' Trip! May, 2019- D is for: Dining on Devine Swine; A Mr. Paul Review (6/15)

    What a great experience to be able to go on a VIP tour. I would really like to do any of the tours in WDW. I have never done one. I remember seeing the price sticker, but had no idea the significance of it. I love that stuff! You have my word. When I get to WDW again, my ChunkyDump pic is...

    DDC XXXIV: The Original Home Of The DISDads!!!

    It's Friday! Congrats for graduations, last exams, job interviews, drug tests, trips to Da World. Best of luck to those concerned about their job. Uncertainly is rough. It's not been the best week on my finances. AC is not working in the minivan (not that surprising since it's 6 years old)...

    Sometimes you just need to run away to your happy place ~ A March break solo trip! update 06/22

    No. The girls (DW included) are picky and the only meat they eat is chicken. They wouldn't go for the noodles either. So 'Ohana would be a waste for them. I seriously would like to go, so maybe a solo trip one day! I only recently realized you could get the bread pudding at the bar though, so...

    Making New Friends - One Coffee Crisp At A Time! EPIC trip May 2019 Update 5/21

    Very cool idea! I have nobody in my house who is crafty. But that's a great way to reuse the maps.

    Sometimes you just need to run away to your happy place ~ A March break solo trip! update 06/22

    You know, I don't think I have ever seen the Kiss Goodnight. I also have never had the bread pudding from 'Ohana. So many things on my Disney "to do" list!
