Keisha, think we have rolled with enough punches this trip now.....lol......and someone here mentioned they were going to ask about the camera in the new phone......it’s fabulous though!

MonyK......sorry we didn’t get to see you at HHN last night, it was quite busy for a Sunday.......safe flight home.......and thanks yes, it worked out just fine........

Squirlz....glad you both made it home safe too.......nice prize!

Cam........yes, I’d love to know......I only started using this watch Sunday.....so have missed most of the trip with it.......would love to know the miles. Already done 11,600 steps today.......glad the family reunion went well, sounds like fun......but what a shame about the water heater and vacuum too.......always something.......



Beautiful day here.......you can start to feel that little cooler breeze slightly now........not just as blazing hot as it was, although feels like it in direct sun!

Went to Sal’s for lunch today.....beautiful.........

Out offsite for dinner tonight, looking forward to that.......

Snow already! OMG. If we get snow, it is usually late December through early March. I do love a good snowstorm but they are few and far between for us. Maybe this year, we are due one since it has been several years.
Yup...snow already. That's what happens when you live in Santa Land. We live in northern Alberta ( Canada ) Just to give you a more general idea of where I live...we live a short drive from Jasper National Park. On a clear day we can see the rocky mountains in the distance. We live a very rugged and beautiful part of Canada...but we do have extreme cold temps. And our winters can last very long...or be shorter and not much snow depending on how the weather reacts when it comes over the Mountains.

Last year our winter was VERY long. We had snow the begining of October...and it didn't really go away until late April Actually the week before we went to Mexico for the dd wedding in May...there was another freak snowstorm and cold craptastic weather. We didn't really get much summer here this year...so I'm crossing my fingers for a long fall season, but it's not looking promising right now. Today the wind is cold already and goes right through you and it feels like snow wind. Not nice warm breezes.

Oh no, not that S word! Ah, hope you don’t get the snow, Pumpkin.

Cam, great score on that vacuum. We had to replace our hot water heater this Summer. Good thing my brothers are good with pipes. On a good thing, thought we bought the smallest, eh, 10 gallons more than our old one. Score for my longer hot shower. LOL

Picked up some ground beef, so homemade meatballs and whatever pasta older one wants. Easy dinner, yay.

    Sorta like Xmas, woke up early and ran down the stairs, hoping to see goodies (new iphones) on the front Porch. No soup for me yet.
    Yeah!!!!! to new phones.....was at Mall at Millenia on Saturday and the Apple Store there was mobbed by people who were there to pick up their new IPhones.

    Weather is going to continue to be beautiful here. One DS coming for brunch today, need to start tossing things in a bin for trip. Friday night lights tonight, chicken wings somewhere first, perfect evening.
    The weather here has been beautiful in the evenings.

    Hope those at the Dark Side continue to have fun in the parks and enjoying some scares.
    Lynne enjoying HHN.....LOL...My feet and legs can attest to it. Have had some nice scares in the houses. You will be flying out before you know it.


    I’m sure I mentioned it before but ridiculously excited that after nearly 2 decades of HHN visits the mr greenlighted things and a cancellation came thru for the 6 house tour. Wooooooooooooo!
    I did 6 house UMH Tour. Was a good Tour.


    On a sad note Vicki posted in Facebook her brother died yesterday
    I need to get a card out to her tomorrow
    Mac thanks for sharing the information on Vicki.

    Tink, i’am So sorry to hear about your brother passing. You and your family are in my prayers :grouphug:


    And glad you are enjoying SF, as I am staying there starting next week, for a few days. First time there, though I have eaten in their restaurant, and looked around, when I was staying at RPR.
    You will love staying at SF. It’s a beautiful Resort Lynne.


    Didn’t get to see Carole and Tom this trip but Patty, and Joe, Robby, Sue and I met at Hrd rock for a drink- that lasted 4 hours! So. Much. Fun. Had a great time
    Enjoyed seeing everyone. Was such a nice visit.

    Schumi.....was glad to hear you and Tom will not have issues getting your flight home....your right the company going under will affect all those working for them as well as folks who had flights booked out in future them.

    High fived Venkman on way out of Ghostbusters
    Nice you were able to do that. You said that was something you wanted to do.
    You and your daughter covered a lot yesterday evening.

    I basically walked in US, YETI, Stranger Things. Had dinner and then went to House of 1000 Corpses. There was about 15 minute wait in Express for House of 1000 Corpses. I had not done this house yet and it was on UMH Tour so wanted to see it in action in evening. It was a bit underwhelming.

    Sat on bench and watched the the show at the Vanity Ball Scare Zone. The scareactors are great there.

    Today thank goodness was a rest day. Did a little pool time and napping in the room.

    Tink/ so sorry about your loss! Sending hugs and prayers!


    Nice relaxing day here! Spent the day visiting with friends at the Hard Rock! Saw Sue M at the pool for a bit. Had some birthday drinks at the Beach Club!! Lots of rum in the them!

    Now relaxing in the lounge- the team members here are so kind to us- they truly are family !! Met the new management here! Top notch folks!

    Tomorrow we head to Discovery Cove for the day!

    Hope everyone is having a great evening!!

    Have fun with the dolphins, Patty. It is such a pretty park. Mediocre food, but edible. And those slushies, yum.

    Full from dinner, was tasty. Now just chilling, with the AC running. Still warm out.

    ThanksLynne! Glad you’re having a chilling night!

    Oh no!

    Did we miss your birthday??🙀

    If so happy belated birthday wishes for you!

    It was yesterday! Had a great day- thx!!

    Vicki has posted on fb she changed her avatar picture and put one up of her brother
    Think it will be temporary for honoring him

    It’s a nice picture of them

    Happy first day of Fall. It was 90 degrees and humid today Ugh!
    Busy day at work today, but also fun because one of our clients brought her new puppy. I can’t remember what she said the breed was, but she looked a bit like a golden doodle. She was so adorable.
    In the news of the annoying, on Saturday we noticed 2 big scratches on the passenger side door of dh’s car. It looked like someone had keyed his car, except the scratches were at the bottom of the door.

    Been a funny couple of days. Our airline has gone bust
    Oh no, sorry to hear that, but glad you are not stranded. Although if you’re going to be stranded somewhere you are at one of the best places for it. Something similar happened to us ages ago with Value Jet. Thankfully they went under before we had our flight.

    So sorry to hear this. Tin, you and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

    Lack of Home button is odd but almost past that.
    You get used to it fairly quickly. One o the therapists I work for has an I7 and I have to keep reminding myself that it doesn’t work like my phone. There is a way to create a home button on the screen. My boss did it for her phone, but I find it to be annoying.

    UGH...the weather forcast is snow Friday...
    I know you live far north, but it’s too soon.

    Wanted more than to sleep in Sunday morning but we were committed to a big car show. To my complete surprise I won a trophy for Best Domestic!
    Congratulations.

    Snow already! OMG. If we get snow, it is usually late December through early March. I do love a good snowstorm but they are few and far between for us. Maybe this year, we are due one since it has been several years.
    That’s pretty hush how it is here too. I was looking at some of my Facebook pictures last night and came across one from last December when we had 9 inches of snow.

    Yeah!!!!! to new phones.....was at Mall at Millenia on Saturday and the Apple Store there was mobbed by people who were there to pick up their new IPhones.
    I would love to look at the new 11, but I am still paying on my 10.

    Tomorrow we head to Discovery Cove for the day!
    That was one of our favorite trips.

    It was yesterday! Had a great day- thx!!
    Happy belated birthday!

    It is quite a strange ting as they’re a massive airline. Always hoped for a reprieve.......glad you’re having a nice time......yes, the houses have been so quick to enter with EP! We are delighted with the times we’ve waited......lines are practically non existent in most houses.

    I still see her dog in the avatar.......will check tomorrow........it’s an awful tragedy........thoughts are still with her.

    Yes, TC were the third biggest airline in the UK, so no budget airline.....so, quite surprising they didn’t get a rescue package considering the size of them........yes, first day of Autumn.......and you can feel the change here.....still beautiful but just not as blazing hot, especially at night....



    Another fabulous day today......some good park time, nice lunch at Sal’s then dinner at Oceanaire followed by some fun times with our friends at Strong Water........had a few things created just for us to try.......gorgeous......love that place! Very much home from home........

    Maybe do St Augustine again tomorrow.......will see how we feel in the morning......

    Have a good night all........

    :wave2: A lovely Good Morning to all the homies.

    Continued thoughts of Tink, and sending some peace and comfort, and sympathy this day.

    Ah, another warm day, but not as humid, per radio weather guy, a nice, day, again seeing the temps rise to around 80, and a very sunny day.

    So far, a dark, but nice and clear commute. Nary a breeze, so calm too. Still dark out, but you can see the sky a little less dark then when I parked. Pitch black in places, quite nice.

    With that, today is the day, Mac's ready for her Taco Bell run.

    Yes, ladies and gents, find a taco or two, it's Taco Tuesday today.
    438522

    So, enjoy this first full day of Fall.

    Tea for me, and maybe beach town for Schumi.

    So glad to hear from Robo and Schumi, the nice weather they are having.

    The time for tea, has come. Just a tad cool inside, as hear the AC already clanking. Hmm, sweater? Maybe before the day is over.

    Later, homies, have some fun today, and feel good.

    :rockband: :music:

    Thanks Robo......if we’d known you were around the hotel yesterday we’d have popped by to say hello.......not sure what we’re doing today yet.....as always a 10 second decision after breakfast works for us........have a great day too :wave2:

    Lynne......hope you don’t need a sweater today.......and enjoy that tea!!! I do miss my morning cuppa when I’m here.........



    Trying to decide if we should go to St Augustine or New Smyrna Beach.......at NSB we can see manatees and dolphins in their natural habitat........beautiful........but......we also love St Augustine........or of course there’s a Gulf Coast beach too.........hmmmm.

    Breakfast first I think.........looks to be another glorious day ahead.......

    Have a good one.........

    Happy belated birthday to Patty and have some fun with the dolphins!

    When I checked the weather this morning it said 68 this morning. That was a little before 7am. It seems that it is cooling down a little bit. At least in the morning it appears. Which is good news. It may soon be the time where I can start to think about coming to the parks again, but Orlando would have to cool down a little bit more before I think about doing a whole day in the parks again.
