From the food pictures you have posted, I get the feeling you're gonna be walking those calories off for awhile. :rotfl:
Tonight it was LuLu's.
We had dinner with parents we know from both of our DDs school. It was a 2 hour wait, luckily they have an app where you can reserve well in advance.
The appetizers were the shrimp nachos

And crab claws

I had the combo of two, with grilled shrimp (absolutely no flavor at all) :worried: and fried fish (very tasty) :thumbsup2

The place sits right on the Intercoastsl Waterway, so you catch some vessels going by as you eat

Dinner topics varied, but one came up that might be serious problem. The school board has been changing dates a lot with the DDs academic calendar the last few years. For instance, this past Memorial Day they actually had kids in school the week after Memorial Day, a first ever. Apparently next year they are changing it back, which is why this trip is actually a week earlier than when we normally come down. Usually they are out Columbus Day Monday and Tuesday, but this year it was the week before. Well...it sounds like they are going to keep it that way for next year. If so, that means we're gonna miss Dismeet at FW next year because it'll be the week before.

Not for certain yet, but that was what the other parents said they had heard.

We'll see.

I hope that's not the case. Give us the name of the school board, we'll all sign a petition. :chat:
You can't have the kids out of school for Columbus day when it's not Columbus day. it's inconceivable. :scared1:
Torches and pitchforks are not out of the question.
Do they have any idea who they're dealing with? :confused3
Besides, you're kids are well ahead of the pack, I'm sure they can make it up later. :thumbsup2

    You know michael, some of us are there for two weeks coming the week before Columbus Day. You can still come and have a mini dis meet.
    Well, the idea as it stands now is that the KIDS won't make the Dismeet in October 2020...

    So, from talking to some more folks in the know, it sounds like the fall break will likely remain the week before Columbus Day. IF this is the case, then it will likely just be Stacey and myself attending the Dismeet week.

    Now, about the kids...

    I got this idea...

    The way we see it, the oldest DD got to have a BD at WDW, but the youngest never has. Wellll, it just so happens there is another neurology conference going on at the Grand Floridian the weekend of June 6th, which just happens to be the youngest DDs BD. So, tonight we booked 8 days during that week since I can get education money for that one too to help with expenses on fuel and 3 nights at the Fort and the girls still get a trip to WDW.

    An early present was a sizable gift certificate to Bass Pro. I promptly spent it on new chairs for camper so I could dispose of my mix match chairs of various colors and sizes.

    2 rocking chairs and two standard chairs with raisable arm rests.

    I did of course leave my University of Alabama foldable chair and table in camper. For dignitaries and VIPs when visiting.

    Soooooo I take it the rockers are for the two OLD folks in your family? (heh heh heh).... :rolleyes:

    [At least that's what Teamubr sez ::yes::].

    PS - Nice chairs. Aren't gift certificates great?

    Kids wanted rockers too, but yes, they are typically utilized more by us "older" folks.

    Gift certificates are best thing ever. No guessing or hoping they like what you got them. If they don't like it, it ain't your fault.

    That's false advertising. You can't put Southern Comfort on something in big letters and then slip in the "Non-Alcoholic" in little bitty letters.

    Agreed, however, the missing ingredients are easily obtained from the freezer if needed.

    LOL, it is some good stuff.
    It really is, I prefer it over the Borden's. However, you really gotta not look at the calories per 1/2 cup. o_O

    My wife and kids found me the National Lampoons Christmas Vacation glass last year.

    We have 2 in the camper! Greatest thing ever, lol, Only thing you have to watch is if you're camped and a little slope outside the front door, when you rock you go forward to far and roll down the slope. :rotfl2:

    Nephew was at our place for Thanksgiving meal. Walked in and asked, "When did you put to Old people steps on your Camper?" I installed the fold down steps this spring smart ***!:cool1:
