We are alive and well, well worn out!

Three different people called me today, since I had not posted on my blog and they were worried about me. Thanks friends, that means a lot to me, and I am really sorry I worried you. But last night we got in late, and wanted to leave early today, so there just wasn’t time to report all we saw and did.

The last two days, make that three, have been a whirlwind of excitement and fun, and there is just too much to share. Tuesday we went to the Animal Kingdom which up until now had been my least favorite park. However, I really can’t say that any more, we had a fabulous time and I’m ready to go back again. Most favorite thing was the Lion King Show, WOW! Spectacular and fabulous and wonderful and delightful! I got some great photos too, which I will share another time.

Today was Disney Hollywood Studios, formerly known as MGM, or at least it was the last time we were here. Another great day, but not quite as exciting as the Animal Kingdom. Best part of it were the Christmas lights, but more about them later, and maybe even a video clip if I can figure out how to do that.

What I want to share tonight is someone we happened to see while at the Animal Kingdom yesterday. Who would be the last person you would expect to see on vacation at Walt Disney World this time of year? And if I told you I saw that jolly old man here, would you believe me? Well I did! I’m not sure if he was a cast member or a vacationer, but he was most certainly Santa.

We were walking along, well I was riding, John was pushing, and I noticed the white hair and beard, and the bluest eyes and rosy cheeks, and I swear his eyes were twinkling. People were rushing past him, not even noticing him sitting there. I told John to stop, and turn around… and pointed him out… . People walked right by him, and every once in a while a child would do a double take, just to be hushed by a parent who didn’t even bother to look. One little girl walked up to him, and placed her hand on his knee, and then was called away by her Mother who I swear didn’t even look!

I really wish I had asked a cast member if he was a plant or a cast member, but honestly, I don’t want to know… I know who he is, just wondering why he is here and not up North getting ready for his other trip?


  1. Hello, is he still there, santa? I'll take a plane straight away with my wishes letter!!

    Well, I just wanted to tell you that I came across your web page with blogs and wanted to thank you EVER SO MUCH. I live in a tiny little village on the north-west coast of Spain and it really is lifesaving to find places that explain so well how to make blocks. Thanks ever so much!!

  2. Its me again.. Just to tell you that once a week I go to a notions store (I think thats the word, you know one of those stores that sells buttons and that stuff) and we meet there to sew and do bobbin lace. Well I told them about your blocks and I'm going to translate one block a week and we are going to do it there and hope to end up doing a sort of sample quilt.

    With regard those mistakes someone pointed out (which you mention some posts away) well, don't worry, I'M A BEGINNER and they wouldn't have mistaken me.

    Thanks again!!

    I won't take up any more of your time, promise lol
