the day we saw the peacock

After our Christmas trip to Disneyworld, we were driving around nice FL neighborhoods, and near a lake area, there was a peacock strutting down the driveway. Yep. Such a sight, we had to get out and take a snap!

when we were in Albany

Walmart had classic Coke bottles which we'd buy (with the Coke still in them, of course) and Mayu would put some roses in them - when I surprised her with flowers. :)

the wife, the I, the old troll

Here we are in Norway - via Epcot. Who's that old guy behind us? He leans to get in the picture...

the lights at Epcot

Beautiful, aren't they? This was my first time at Epcot during Christmas. They really go all out. And you wouldn't believe the amount of fireworks over the Magic Kingdom castle!


I honestly don't remember these gingerbread Mickeys - what they tasted like or where they were from - but it must've been in Epcot, since the next photo is of the great harmony singers from the American Adventure. Even if you don't like the main AA show (Mayu fell asleep!), it's worth coming here for the preshow with these singers pitching out faultless American classics.

This man did not get married at Disneyworld, but he's seen grooms wearing them around the park.

Have YOU seen this man?

We saw West Side Story the other night, but I haven't downloaded the images from the camera yet. Until then.... enjoy more Christmas at Disneyworld!

In just a couple days, we're taking the train to go see the Broadway tour of West Side Story. I LOVE this show. Next to My Fair Lady, perhaps my favorite musical. Ah, if only Russ Tamblyn would pen an autobiography and let me publish it...

I think those are cucumbers hulking there.

Here's how you grow a pumpkin to look like Mickey Mouse, says Epcot's The Land...

Zorro at Disneyworld!

I wish I could remember where we saw all this stuff. I know it was very unusual. I mean, they should have a ride or fast food place or something for Zorro since it was important to them. But the Disney of then isn't the Disney of now.

me and the castle

We treated ourselves to a nice buffet meal in a "character dining" restaurant on Main St. during that Christmas vacation. Of course it was bags of fun!
