In Park RAK: bought off eBay, so he's not new, in excellent condition though, Bendy Jack Will be waiting for you! (We haven't done our walking commute into the park yet so I'll update our arrival soon).
Throwback Thursday. Goofy came skipping by, grabbed my mini cousins hand and before we knew it they had skipped a full block away. We had to run to catch up. Both minis are married women now. The one in the striped dress and ears is a MW family member and that's me getting Tigger love. I'm the same age in these photos that my son will be when we visit this October. My how time flies.

Jack Ponders Trolls.
I know they exist. I meet them every day. They do live under bridges. Some have access to the internet.
A recent posting and comment thread concerned me. I thought about it a lot as I biked to work. This unsettled feeling has stayed with me.
How does one know the difference between a real troll that is purposefully out to “get you and make fun of you” and a perso More...
Greetings Everyone. This is my introductory post. This photo is of me on main street late August 2009 when it was a 100+ degree day. I'm melted! But still stoked for fireworks. My son has chosen DL for his 18th BD in late October so we're so much looking forward to the Halloween decorations and (maybe) cooler weather and did I mention I love NBC! Can't wait! Glad I found y'all here.
Mr. Disney was one of five children, four boys and a girl. He was the fourth born Disney son. He was named after his parents pastor and friend Walter Parr, a preacher at St. Paul Congregational Church. The pastor, in turn, will later name his son Elias, after Walt's father.
Most of Walt's childhood was spent on a farm in Marceline, Missouri, where he began drawing, painting and selling pictures to neighbors and family friends. In 1911, the family moved to Kansas City, where his love for trains really developed. His Uncle, Mike Martin, was a train Engineer who worked on the route between Fort Madison, Iowa, and Marceline. Walt would later work a summer job with the railroad, selling newspapers and snacks to the travelers. To read more about Walts love for trains

Walt Disney in my opinion, is a wonderful example of the American dream! He represents: imagination, optimism, creation, and self-made success in the American tradition. He brought us closer to the future, while telling us of the past, it is certain, Walt Disney was a great man! He and his brother Roy co-founded Walt Disney Productions, which became one of the best-known motion-picture production companies in the world! Disney was an innovative animator and created the cartoon characters we all love to watch today. :) He won 22 Academy Awards during his lifetime, and was the founder of the magical playgrounds that ties us all together, Disneyland and Disney World. Had he been alive today he would be 112 years old! Happy birthday Walt! Thank you so much for believing in your dreams! You are a true inspiration.
In honor of today, it would be fun if we all mentioned our favorite quote from Mr. Disney. I'll go first, I have many, but this one always sticks out:
"I've always been interested in the past and history and I think it's vital."
Thanks for reading and watching! Hope you all have a terrific Thursday!
