Ckmiles safe travels!

Charade any new plans for LA? We don’t go until 2nd week ish of August. Only going to DL. Not expecting to get into Galaxy edge.

Today I came down with a cold, ugh. Probably from flight. Yuck. Tonight is cousins last night in town so we’re all going out for Japanese at local restaurant. Don’t know how much I’ll feel like eating but at least it’s not heavy.

Wednesday is our Disney Trivia pub night. We decided on a name, Beer Necessities. Can’t remember if I mentioned. My head is so stuffed up I can’t think. o_O
I don’t think we have anything new planned. We have a lot already to pack into the few days we are going to be there.
Sorry about the cold. Hopefully it won’t last long.
Great name - Beer Necessities. Very punny. DH and I were once on a fun bowling league. We were big fans of the show Whose Line is it Anyway at the time. Our league name was Whose Lane is it Anyway.

Trivia night sounds fun, Sue, and sorry to hear about your cold. Hope you are feeling better today, and get rid of that cold soon.

Charade, your trip out West does sound busy, but I bet lots of fun. There is much to do out there,you can spend days and days.

Ah, a dark, and rainy commute. Luckily all must have thought to sleep in some, but that slow mo, braking through the green light, just before I had to turn, grr, he must have been still half asleep. Yep, and heated car seat, with warmer jacket on. No sun to see near horizon either. Ah, just another not so nice day.

But it is for CK, and Schumi, who are both now enjoying the sun and fun. Hope you had safe travels CK.

Well, it is a Tuesday, so that means, Mac may have to get to the Taco Bell. Ah yes, another upload_2019-5-14_6-3-40.jpeg, to all the homies. Have a great Tuesday, have some tea, or coffee, or water.

Later homies, time for tea, and sigh, sweater where are ya? Sun you'd better make an appearance soon. I'm tired of rain and gray days.

Oh, and for those not staying onsite, and want to park in the garages, if you buy two or more matinee time tickets from the Cinemark theater in CityWalk, you get a one car, reimbursed regular parking fee when you go to the box office. All the info is here: on the Universal blog's announcement of it: https://blog.universalorlando.com/visiting-us/cinemark-parking-at-citywalk/. Pretty nice, as I can assume you can stay the rest of the day, and night, in CityWalk, and the parks. And heck, usually matinee tickets are cheaper.

I so need more tea.

And hey--- where is everyone?
ah yes, make it tea, but
come on homies:

    Yep, always enjoy spot trip reports. Ack, to hearing some delays, but have an awesome time in the parks, CK.

    Tink, hope your car gets back soon, and not too bad a bill. Stinks when not having a car at your ready.

    Good Morning Robo, hope you and yours are doing well. Hope your HHN cup has some good coffee in there.

    Good Morning, Mac. Hope you have recovered from your great trip, and feeling well. Taco Bell maybe for me, though maybe a hoagie place too. Not sure. Will ask the kids when I get home.

    We are finalizing more plans for the California trip. We are going to meet up with the woman who is possibly dh's niece. She has recently relocated to Los Angeles. (For those who are new here a brief background - dh was adopted as an infant, recently did an Ancestry DNA test and has discovered that he might have half siblings.)
    California will be great! and hope the family meet up goes well!:thumbsup2

    Today I came down with a cold, ugh. Probably from flight
    So sorry about that! Sending healing wishes your way!:)

    Yep, and heated car seat, with warmer jacket on.
    Same here! :( The weather man has promised that we will see warm temps and sun this weekend! I hope so!!

    Have a great day everyone!
    :cheer2: Enjoy!!

    I'm home waiting for my car to be fixed ...hope it's just the brakes today after the last time. They always seem to find something extra.
    Hoping for the best!!:goodvibes

    Sue M, hope the cold you have disappears quickly!

    Sending you Mummy Dust for a fast recovery

    You need the be in top form for Beer Necessities Wednesday...
    Thanks Mac! We’re all studying Disney Princess trivia! With this cold nothing is sticking :crazy2:

    We had fun picking names. I had a few picked out: Second Star to the right, Katie turned into Second Bar to the right, that was second contender. We had a few other good ones. Wrote them all out, then Katie picked.
    I hope I feel better tomorrow, today is worse so maybe by tomorrow it will start getting better. If not, better living thru pharmaceuticals, lol. I’ll load up on cold pills and Advil!
    I remember you had lots of plans for SoCal but when you mentioned you were still planning I wondered if you added things!

    Thanks Lynne! Rainy day here too. Cousins leave to catch the ferry over to Vancouver Isl at noon, so I’m glad it’s been nice the few days they were here, but too bad weather changing for next leg of their trip. The passage over to the Island is beautiful on a sunny clear day. And there’s been many Orca sightings. Must be migration time.

    Good morning !

    Have a great day everyone!
    Yay! You’re there! We were worried about delays as when we left Thursday it was pouring. Rain had let up before we loaded onto plane. I love the views from our gate at MCO. Gate 10. We always take the early evening Alaska flight, always the same gate! Looks out at Palm trees and a pond.

    Good morning :coffee:

    Glad to see you made it to the darkside ck...hope you have a blast.

    I'm home waiting for my car to be fixed ...hope it's just the brakes today after the last time. They always seem to find something extra.

    Hi Lynne, mac and Robo...have a great taco Tuesday :flower1:
    Funny how they always find something :scared: Last time it was some kind of belt. But wasn’t dire so I put it off till next oil change which is due now. Also have to get the snow tires off :rolleyes1


    No Taco Tues for me, I think a bowl of chicken noodle soup is all I feel like. ::yes::

    Real, haven't see anything, but hope DM is still getting good thoughts, and is not in pain. Hugs.

    Sniff, still a gray day. And cool.

    Sending you gobs of Mummy Dust it’s a cheap car repair bill today!

    I don’t know which is worse...
    Vet bills or car repair bills

    They both ruin my budget

    If you are not a cat person, you won’t understand this post

    I could have made a deposit on a new car compared to what we have laid out on Luna

    She had a basic two top teeth canine extraction Thursday

    Simple surgery as no jaw bone involved

    Those teeth had chipped and nerves were exposed so she only ate canned food last full year
    She never complained about pain when she ate but would chew food with her head tilted to the side

    Figured as long as she regularly ate, no problem

    At the check up at the vet weeks ago, we were told she needed them extracted before more of a medical issue came up
    So had it done before the weekend

    She has not done well two days after surgery
    She stopped eating yesterday morning

    Took her in for follow up with vet this morning
    Called vet Monday and he said wait another day (today) before he needed to see her
    Infection and it has spread to the bone
    Now on meds twice daily
    One of vets staff will come to our house to give her the meds for the next 14 days

    Vet will do reconstruction surgery after infection is gone

    He said he has never encountered this situation and feels like he failed her and us


    He is a fantastic vet surgeon and know this was a fluke that could have happened to anyone

    We are so appreciative he will have staff come to our house so she can stay at home
    And when her next surgery happens, he will keep her housed at his vet office for after care

    We hit the jackpot when we moved and had to secure a new vet

    Now I am working on finding a new dentist for me

    Too bad the vet does not do people....

    Mac- sorry to hear about Luna's dental issues! Nice that she can stay at home and they will come to care for her infection!

    Schumi- Glad you're having a fabulous time!

    Sounds like a rainy day everywhere today!!

    Why I should not go out in the rain:

    I feel for ya Mac. We called our female lab, the million dollar lady. Spent a good bit of money, twice, to make sure it wasn't cancer. Think at the end of her life, it was, but she led a good long life. Sending good thoughts Miss Luna gets better fast, and how nice, house call to help.

    Schumi, sounds like you are having so much fun. Yep, I do like to watch a thunderstorm, but from a dry place. Nice you had towels to help.

    Sorry to hear about your Luna mac...hope she recovers quickly and glad she can stay home for her treatment..poor kitty.

    Glad Carole is still enjoying her trip in spite of the rain.

    Hope your cold goes away soon Sue.

    It's a beautiful day here, sunny and in the 70s. The car repair cost was about what I expected today...maybe slightly more but at least I don't have an oil leak like they thought. I guess my souvenir budget has greatly decreased but the trips are still on for now.

    Have a good night everyone :goodvibes
