Happy Birthday Pooh and the Gang

Picture Courtsey of Disney's Facebook Page
On October 14, 1926 A.A. Milne's Winnie-the-Pooh was first published! One of my favorite books that even after 84 years is still entertaining.
Fitting I discovered this tidbit as I’m washing the Eyore sweatshirt that got hungry at dinner. Oh Bother. Fortunately, I was able to change into my fleece featuring Piglet, Pooh, Eyore, Owl, Tigger and Rabbit.
Most people go to Disney to see Mickey … I’m all about the Hundred Acre Wood Gang. Do you like old pooh, reinvented new pooh? Who is your favorite character?

Making a list, checking it twice …

Opps. Sorry, wrong holiday, even if I have most of my shopping done. Excel spreadsheet in place (laugh, I'm not offended just organized), and since grandma is in town and says she “needs” a chore while we’re at work – my best elf wrapper.  I admit, I need to start early, it’s the only away the holidays happen.. Especially, with shipping and spending it this year in FL with grandma. But, I’m kind of freaked out. Today, people at work are planning holiday parties – not to be confused with Halloween parties. Boyfriend just sent me a picture from his lunch trip to Home Depot. I’m not ready for decorations or music in the stores yet.

Sticking with the holiday that is quickly approaching – and one of my favorite holiday classics - here is the link to “The Great Pumpkin Countdown.”

Who would have thought Snoppy and the gang would be turning 60! The link has cute wallpaper, cartoons and while I haven’t figured out the game, it has a lot of fun stuff if you want to break into the Snoopy Dance.

Theme Parks

Roller coasters, bumper cars and twirl-a-whirls. Sunday boyfriend and I spent the day with friends at Hershey Park. Chilly, but a great weather to walk around, take in rides. Boyfriend won prizes playing skee-ball and tossing rings on top of bottles. Yay, more bears for me. I, on the other hand, felt like Charlie Brown and the football, my skee-ball game had so much promise and fizzled out midway through. It’s the one came I stick with as I’m not very good at the hoops, roll the bowling bar so it doesn’t hit the light and come all the way back or shooting.

Chocolate screamed our names at the Chocolate World – Kisses, Mounds; Almond Joys …the list goes on. While we got our fill of the Hershey classics, we were disappointed to find that they didn’t have some of the unique things they used to have that you couldn’t find in the food store. In years past we’d go home with bags filled of unique treats. We did manage to find a new flavor of Good & Plenty – it was supposed to be hot but everything tasted like the fruit flavors mixed with cinnamon and was rather strange. The consensus was stick to the original.

What is your favorite amusement park? Do you stick with rides, play games or both?
