    Maybe it is because I walk a great deal everyday or that I stick with footware that I have purchased year after year. I mostly walk in my slip on style Sketchers and wear these mainly in the parks. I purchase a new pair whenever I am going to Disney. I also bring my MaryJane Croc's and my sandals are Merrell's slides with a back. If there is a sandal I could recommend to the world that isn't a fashion statement for men or women but is the most comfortable footware is the Keen sandal shoe. They were designed for summer hiking and sold mostly in outdoor type stores like REI. They are closed at the toe and heel, the rest is open like a sandal. Inside sole is a slice of heaven, arch support and mega cushion. Adult sandals run around $129-159 and last forever and are also waterproof a bonus for Disney storms.

    I wouldn't make it through the gate of any park at Disney in a pair of flip flops. There is a reason why when you look down at any CM's foot they are well outfitted. Even their lifeguards are not in flip flops.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    called work to say I wasn't coming in and then called AAA to have it towed to where my mechanic moved to (his Midas closed down). I didn't want to take a chance oh having the muffler fall off.

    got an estimate for it, $620!, I told him I only have $500.

    He shopped around for cheaper parts and found them, new estimate $497 , but I had to wait for 4 hours for them to get there.

    Parts arrived late and I had to wait for a tech to finally fix parts.

    Drove out of garage 8 hours later @ 6:00pm, but hey, I saved $120
    Oh Brian how sad. {{{Hugs}}}

    I also tip everyday, mainly 'cause I know I don't have the same mousekeeper everyday. I leave $5 a day for 2 people. I have always received extra towels the next day, new soap and sundries. Towel animals do vary. Some trips many other trips a few.

    I have a friend who had a DD in the college program 2 years ago. She had an electric cart run over her foot at Fantasmic and she spent the duration of her CP in the laundry sitting down making towel creatures in volume for the deluxe resorts. Her DD could not wait to go home.

    Well I've only made it a few pages into the posts going backwards and haven't gotten to Chris' posts.
    Glad you are back but sorry too. Hopefully tomorrow I can catch up some more.

    Meanwhile I am still bummed to hear that the Oreo bon bons are now gone from Cafe May. Oh Pooh!
    Likely never to get over that.

    Makes it hard to eat when there is no table, and toddlers are running all around knocking things over. We headed away from the area. But I think park attendance was super high during our trip. Lines were long everywhere, it was a wait for nearly everything, and lines, lines, lines.


    Still, had a great time. Just used some wisdom to skip past a lot of the stuff.

    It has rained here, monsoon style, every day since last Saturday after we left to head down to WDW, and today is starting with a thunderstorm. Hope it is a big nasty one, with lots of thunder.

    I am trying to get a news site to load so I can see video of the Ryan speech, but three different sites have "unusually high traffic" and are not responding.

    Guess folks don't know who Ryan is, and are trying to figure it out. I have always liked him for his fiscal conservation. We'll see about the rest.

    Re: The RT Thread Part V

    Our city has had mass mayhem of late. In three days we have had 4 traffic deaths and a shooting resulting in three dead, one injured at a "dancer" bar. That is aside from the robberies, burglaries and general small crimes wave.

    I was thinking how safe I felt on Disney property, could have slept without the flip latch and deadbolt, however, at home I put a deadbolt on every door, and safety locks and flip latches. HMMMMM. Guess I don't feel as safe here as I do there among 10's of thousands of strangers.

    Between 2 12+ hour shifts the last coupla' days, plus everything else that's goin' on around here lately, I'm pretty much churned into butter. Plus, I'm the open-close Mgr. at TDS tomorrow, so I gotta' get some sleep so I can be at my most Magical. I kinda' pride myself on that...!

    Hope to talk to ya' soon, and hope you're all well, gang!

    Have a Magical...!!!
