So, this morning we were out and about and as we turned into Sand Lake Road we saw police cars with flashing lights in the distance.......thought it was a car accident.

Got closer and there were five sheriff cars, all flashing and as we were now stopped more or less now we saw two officers standing on the grass beside a dead body.

They hadn’t covered it over yet or touched it by the looks of it, so you could clearly see it was a man who was laid out flat. We were close enough to see he was dead.

Horrible to see this morning. Story is in the Orlando Sentinel.

    Quick stop in-after delay of first leg walked right off plane down to gate and straight onto next leg of flight in Atlanta. How can Atlanta airport have “traffic issues” at 6am?? But we made our connecting flight. Checked into SF and then off to UCF. Dinner now at Amatista (Magical Dining month 3 course meal $35, waiter suggested we split it with just an extra app) - best deal for steak dinner!! And I’m full already waiting on the dessert
    Here’s the kiddo if anyone sees us in park tonight
    I’ve got a dark blue sleeveless shell type top and white jean short m

    Thanks everyone!

    I also need some help...I am trying to figure out what should my kids wear to MNSSHP. Its going to be hot so I don't want to bring those long costumes, but I really don't k know what to do. Chris (6) would be the only one who would complain if he wasn't dressed up but other kids were.

    The kid's ages are 6, 3, 1, and 2 months.

    T shirts with the Winnie the Pooh characters, and the youngest, all yellow so she is the honey pot. Yeah, capes and other heavy clothes would not be fun for kids. Oldest Pooh or Christopher Robin colors, 3 year old, what ever one wants to be, Tigger would be fun, and 1 year old, put in brown colors, as Roo.

    Anyway, my thoughts for easy costumes. All can be in shorts too, if so warm out, Kfish.

    Well, oddly a dinner time nap for me. Guess my body needed it. Last night DH came home around midnight, and decided to have a conversation with me, and once I awake, did not get any good sleep, as DH was restless, so I kept waking up. Hey, at least I was at work a bit earlier than usual. Left right after DH.

    So, a more European dinner time, and ooh, bought this honey bbq sauce. While I am not a fan of honey, on the left over chicken I cut up and quick fried, it was so tasty. With baked beans I added cut up green pepper to, and once again, a quick meal. I know I will not have left overs once DH gets home. Older one was warned, to not eat all the chicken. DH gets grumpy when food is not left over, on his late night arrivals.

    Yay, Casey and DD now enjoying some scares.

    Yay, for MonyK arrived, and yep, the day I arrive, have a reservation at that SF restaurant to take advantage of the meal deal. Thought it was the last day offfered, so made that reservation. Did see, though, because of the weather, the offers were extended a week later. Glad to hear steak was good, as I was eyeing that for my entree.

    With that, screen watching, and then ready for bed. I will still be asleep when DH probably arrives. Even he was slow getting up this morning.

    May all enjoy this lovely Wednesday evening .

    Hey Robo.........tomorrow!!!! Lovely.......hope you have a safe travel day......I’m sure you’ll have a wonderful trip too........weather is glorious here......little cloudy today but it’s welcomed!!! Hope to run into you at some point........ :wave2:
    Hey Schumi :wave: .......look forward to seeing you.



    Nearly four years since last lockout over contract negotiations at the mr’s employer have passed quickly. The gauntlet is starting to be drawn by the company. Next week is an announced one week layoff/shutdown. Works for me:), will be enjoying CB for a few extra days this trip

    Woo hoo indeed
    Glad to hear you all were able to extend your vacation.

    Wow.....not something you imagine you will see on vacation.....so terrible sad.


    Checked into SF and then off to UCF. Dinner now at Amatista (Magical Dining month 3 course meal $35, waiter suggested we split it with just an extra app) - best deal for steak dinner!! And I’m full already waiting on the dessert
    Wow...the food looks good. Remember calories :dogdance: don’t count on vacation.

    Some real life horror there /\ scary indeed
    It wasn’t nice. Especially as you could really see he was dead......he was close enough to see his face. 45 year old man. Definite homicide according to Sentinel. Don’t want to see anything like that again.

    Naps are good Lynne.......I’m a big fan!!!



    HHN was fun tonight.......not too busy. EP lines were a walk on......regular lines seemed around 35 minutes on average. Little bit cooler tonight too, maybe 78F.....so, it was pleasant walking around the park.

    Into Margaritaville for food and cocktails.......it was good as usual till a bunch of convention folks came in.......why do they have to out shout each other........oh your speech was fabulous.....no yours was fabulous.......bleurgh..........told two off for yelling across us.......they weren’t happy but did move.........but do love sitting at the bar in there.....staff are fabulous.

    Off to bed now......been a long day..........looking through to our bed, it looks so inviting right now!

    Still to decide where to go tomorrow.........:scratchin

    7 houses from 745-1030 with EP. Didn’t get to Stranger Things or 1000 corpses or Killer Klowns. Us was the last house we did- and after walking back out we were too tired to walk the ST EP queue. Our longest wait with EP was 8-9 minutes with 6-7 of that walking the queue! Even with lower wait times was still nice to have Express. Did MiB too as we wanted an AC break.
    Think our best scares was Graveyard (think we got every single scare in there!) and Yeti. Enjoyed classic monsters but missed all the scares. Us was true to movie, and Ghostbusters was being in the movie. Scare zones don’t seem all that great this year, however we didn’t pause long in them either, Depth was detailed and Nightingales was ok, we were behind a couple that were having a ball being scared, so between them in front and dd behind me screaming their heads off I was laughing so hard I wasn’t paying attention in few spots and got some best jumps scares of the night too.
    Off to Batuu tomorrow to see if we can fly millennium falcon.
    Nightly night!

    :wave2: Hi homies:


    437108 Yep, seems it's a thirsty day for some tea. 50 degrees out, and it did feel cool. No jacket though, and car window open. Refreshing. Dark as night commute, and a pretty white moon still lighting up the sky. Enjoying these clear sky days and nights. While makes the overnights cool, even with city lights, can see many stars, a few planes, and tonight and tomorrow night, will see the International Space Station fly by. 5 or so minutes viewing, so you can bet tonight, I'll be looking. Said it would look like a star, but be much brighter, and disappear quick.

    Schumi and MonyK, yay, for HHN reports. Schumi, so sad to see that poor victim. Never want to see anything bad when driving. Glad you enjoyed some of the time at Buffet's bar.

    With that, debating whether to put the sweater on or not. AC is on, and so quiet, that the air flowing sounds like I am in a plane. Eh, think the plane is only for Robo to enjoy today. Safe travels, and hope you quickly get to PBH for some fun. Will be nice to say hello to ya, when you move over to SF. Will send a text when I get in, as hoping to say hello to Patty, before she leaves too.

    Later homies. :music:
    437109 So, for all the homies; 437110


    And, oh yeah,

    437112 ::yes::

    Morning all. Heading out soon to take middle DS for eye check. Seems with this specialistyou never know if you’re going to sit for hours or be back home in less than 2 hours. I’m voting for first option
    .
    Us was true to movie
    Haven’t seen the flick, figured I’d catch it on cable or one of the streaming services. Hate spoilers of any kind lol. Would you say one could enjoy this house without knowing the gory details other than copycats type of thing?
    tomorrow night, will see the International Space Station fly by. 5 or so minutes viewing, so you can bet tonight, I'll be looking. Said it would look like a star, but be much brighter, and disappear quick.
    we sit rather high up, the shuttle trajectory typically seems to be obscured by the tree line ofthe other big ridge across the river from my house. Inspired by your post may step out on my back deck & give it yet another whirl as the skies are supposed to be clear.

    @schumigirl Unfortunately, things like that are the reason why I typically stick to staying in the bubble of Disney, or Universal property when I am in Orlando, or at least try to as much as possible as sometimes you can't help it. I'm glad we no longer have cable since when we did and my parents would keep on the central FL news, it seemed more than half of it was depressing news in relation to Orange County / Orlando. Even when it comes to Daytona, there are a lot of areas to avoid, or you only go during certain times. Not as bad as Orlando, but I avoid it like the plague during spring break.

    On a more lighter note, thanks to everyone for the HHN reports. It's always interesting to hear a little more detail about what is going on and others opinions. Surprised the EP lines were that short that is absolutely amazing! Of course, EP is EP, but with how long some of the lines can be at HHN from what I've seen myself and heard over the years, I would think it might be a little longer of a wait, but I guess not. That's cool that so far it seems you guys are having fun.

    Happy Thursday to the homies! We're almost there to the weekend!

    Good Morning, Dix. Yeah, news is always covering crime. As, my phone buzzed last night, still missing kid. Very sad.

    Keisha, hope DS's eye is doing well. Yeah, doctor's offices. Hope your wait is short.

    Casey......sorry we didn’t see you last night.......we did look!

    MonyK......it was good last night for folks that didn’t have EP........we walked on everything with EP. Graveyard Games is one of our favourites! Have fun today.........

    Disxuni.......no, we don’t let things like that stop us doing anything! Things happen everywhere.......we’d never leave our homes if we all thought like that......that’s life.

    Keisha.......good luck with the boys appointment, hope it’s not too long a wait.........

    Lynne.......you won’t be able to miss the ISS. It is easily discernible from other moving object or stars. We saw it when it was attached to the vehicle delivering essentials to them a month or so back......very impressive and so clear.


    A little cooler today again.......just had a little rain in the Studios.....didn’t last long........

    Now trying to decide where to go eat lunch today.........decisions again.......

    Have a great Thursday.......

    DIsney day today. Amazed at low crowds. Did all headliners except TSM in studios by 9-left SF at 6:39 am and walked in thru tapstyles at 7:07. Millennium falcon is COOL especially if a Star Wars fan. We geeked out a bit. I’m a terrible pilot lol. MK for a bit now to Epcot for food and wine booths before heading back for a nap. Gorgeous day-some clouds, cool breeze, low humidity.
    Back to Hhn tonight. May hit IoA for a bit first. Resort guest entrance was a breeze last night.
    Casey/Sue/Carole any idea where and when y’all be around?

    Have fun at HHN tonight! Goes for MonyK and her power napping DD, Sue, Casey, Schumi and hopefully Robo, who made it safely and are enjoying PBH.

    Me, outside, ready to watch the night skies. Thanks, Schumi, will be cool to see it across the sky.

    Good evening. Long day today. Today was help the therapists with their insurance plans day. I was submitting applications and other paperwork for 3 different therapists to get them credentialed with certain insurance companies. I spent nearly 2 hours with therapist “N” helping him navigate the Medicare application. He is the only one of our therapists who is eligible to accept Medicare clients.

    Charade hope all is going well with you and your kidney stone issue has resolved.
    Thank you. I haven’t had any problems since leaving the hospital.

    So, this morning we were out and about and as we turned into Sand Lake Road we saw police cars with flashing lights in the distance.......thought it was a car accident.

    Got closer and there were five sheriff cars, all flashing and as we were now stopped more or less now we saw two officers standing on the grass beside a dead body.

    They hadn’t covered it over yet or touched it by the looks of it, so you could clearly see it was a man who was laid out flat. We were close enough to see he was dead.

    Horrible to see this morning. Story is in the Orlando Sentinel.
    What a horrible thing to see. I looked up the story, but not a lot of information so far.

    How can Atlanta airport have “traffic issues” at 6am??
    Welcome to Atlanta. That’s the one part of living there that I do not miss.

    Well, oddly a dinner time nap for me. Guess my body needed it. Last night DH came home around midnight, and decided to have a conversation with me, and once I awake, did not get any good sleep, as DH was restless, so I kept waking up. Hey, at least I was at work a bit earlier than usual. Left right after DH.
    Sounds like my life. I can rarely get back to sleep quickly after I wake up. Dh is the opposite. He can fall asleep so quickly that I sometimes wonder if he has a sleep disorder.

    Off to Batuu tomorrow to see if we can fly millennium falcon.
    Millennium falcon is COOL especially if a Star Wars fan. We geeked out a bit. I’m a terrible pilot lol.
    We were terrible when we did this ride at Disneyland. Dh and I were pilots, and B was the gunner. We only had half a crew, so maybe we would have done better if we were fully staffed. On well, it was still fun.

    I napped some this afternoon, so we will see how late I stay awake tonight. Thankfully I don’t have to get up in the morning.

    And briefly got to see Sue in Hogsmeade!! Stayed for 840 Dark arts show-only 3 other people up by us- like a private viewing! Good, but nothing beats the Christmas show. HHN for a couple hours (ST, Ghostbuster, Killer Klowns-loves this one). And now heading back. Another fun and exhausting day
