Brenda & Roger

Cruisin’ the Caribbean

Beating the Storm

Brenda and I rose at 2:30 AM Thursday morning, loaded the our luggage into the 4-wheel drive Colorado, and raced to beat the tons of snow being dumped on our New Hampshire friends.

We escaped the state at 5:45 AM and flew over and through the storm, bumping and rattling our way to warmer climes.

Florida. Balmy 37 degrees. OK, so we had to wear multiple layers and still were cool. But there was no snow!

And more importantly, we got to Florida 2 days before our cruise ship debarks for the Western Caribbean.


Disney Fantasy

Our ship may look like this!

We started planning and investing Disney Points nearly a year ago, and now we’re about ready to board ship! Tomorrow afternoon.

We spent the last couple of days hanging out at the resort, and eating, eating, eating. Training for the cruise (where apparently food is available almost all the time).


Brenda had NEVER (in 18 years) seen Roger sleep sitting up… But rising at 2:30 AM can work a miracle!

So, this morning we had a huge and delicious breakfast at Boma at Animal Kingdom. We had great luck with bus transportation, getting right aboard at every step of the journey. Our first driver had drawn an interesting picture on the opposite side of the bus front window:


Goofy on the bus!

All the while hearing about the huge snow dump we barely avoided.

So, looking forward to some warm weather on a huge cruise ship loaded with delicious food and featuring fantastic shows, cinema, and Star Wars (yes, that’s the theme of the cruise).

So, stay tuned…


December at Walt Disney World

In Dreams Come True on December 12, 2015 at 7:00 am

We are home, Roger back to work Sunday, Brenda on Monday.  Ho-Hum… it was fun.

A little reflection.  In years past this 1st week of December was a good one to go to Walt Disney World.  This year was much different.  Apparently others have heard that it was a low-crowd week and have jumped on that bandwagon.  I can categorically say, this past week was definitely NOT a low crowd week.  Now I will tell you, due to the fact we like to get going early, we were pleasantly surprised to find the parks opening before the published times!!  by 30 minutes.  Now that’s Magical!!



Brenda, Roger, & Olaf…


Rebecca & Brandon Rockin’


We don’t have many photos of the 4 of us together, hope you enjoy these.





A repeat post from September 2015 —

The propulsion system is the brawny BRENDA 2015. Capable of hurtling Roger and his wheels faster than he could walk even before his accident. Pushing 300+ pounds up hills makes for a great workout.

BRENDA 2015: Stong, sweet, and purty cute!

It’s a terrific combo, and highly recommended, it’s very important to make sure BRENDA 2015 does not overheat, a bit of a challenge in the Florida weather.

Luckily the BRENDA 2015 is patient and highly skilled and so perfectly suited for this task.

The ride itself is sometimes thrilling as the BRENDA 2015 must weave us through crowds of Disney patrons who are busy texting, studying maps, gawking, and sometimes attempting to herd and corral their young ones.

Until we meet again, Mickey!!!



Hollywood Studios & Dancing Lights

Patricia, Sci-Fi Dinner Theater… a Duffy collector

Patricia is an avid Duffy collector… She had one on her lanyard as a trader, but she wasn’t allowed to take it.  So… Roger traded for it AND then gave it to her!!!  She was so excited.  He then looked through his selection of pins to trade and found 4 or 5 more & gave them.  She was just beside herself with excitement.  We like to share The Disney Magic too!!
