    Anniversary Meet Memories

    There are some things in MiceChat, as in my life, that I have done that I am not so proud of. But I am proud of the fact that I have been a contributor to and part of this family for almost three years now. You may not know it, but you have helped me more than you could know during one of the harder times in my very blessed life.

    And I do point out with pride that on the 27th I will joyously attend my third Anniversary meet in a row.

    In a short way of saying thanks, and telling friends old and new that I look so much forward to seeing them and meeting others on Sunday the 27th...a few pictures and memories.

    January 2006...it was my very first MC meet, and a somewha emotional return to my beloved DL after about a dozen year absence...and the first MC'ers to greet me were Tim, Diane and the Wolfette. Such super people.



    And for the first time I met two men who have inspired me in many ways...DustySage and Fishbulb...



    Two of the most loving and supportive people I've ever known.

    And since the Texas Rose Bowl win over USC was still fresh, I probably bent the ear of this lady, the biggest SC fan I knew on the site at the time...



    Cindy "Morrigoon" and I confess this picture was from the 2nd anniversary a year ago, as she made a dramatic late entrance to a meet we had on the train.

    Last year's event was also very special, with many more great people.

    This time, Princess Buttercup was the first MC'er I encountered, and can there be any better way to start the day?



    Bedazzled by her loveliness and charm, swept off my feet I was ... and I know that my Kathleen and her Westley understand. I hope.

    And I think it was Rixter who offered to help me up, but I handed him my camera instead.

    I do love me some Fishbulb...



    For the record, this is one of my all-time favorite pictures involving me, ever.

    And I do love me some purpledove...



    Hope you can make it on the 27th, my friend. You always make my day.

    In the evening we all got together to ride POTC...leading to one of my personal funniest/most embarrassing moments in 46 years of going to/working at the park.

    Through some twisted fate at Laffite's Landing (and my own lack of observation) they loaded boats with MC'ers full and I was still left on the landing. They got me my very own boat to ride in. So, camera in hand, I'm thinking, MiceChatters in front that would totally understand, no one that I could see behind me...are you getting my drift...



    And just when I'm feeling good about things....the voice...

    "SIR, PLEASE STOP TAKING THOSE FLASH PICTURES."

    Dead flashes tell no tales.

    The highlight of the night for me was when we got on Haunted Mansion and started the CM's spiel verbatim.

    In any event, if you've never been to a meet, please come to this one. If you've been to most every meet, please come to this one. More memories, to be sure, in the making.




    And when it comes big group picture time, the tall ones always go to the back...the view from the rear...



    (As Fishy woild say) THE END. THE END. and THE ENDS.

    Thank you.

    --Barry

    Re: Anniversary Meet Memories

    I have no pictures from the first b-day But I have oodles from the second last year.

    Friday night. A few out of towners.
    Mamabot and Ijenn, tinkerbelle (NorCal), twinmom's profile (WA), her sister poking her head from behind (Australia), xHarryb (FL), D-kat (N.C.) and disneytim (Vegas).


    The Clinks:


    D-tim, Villains Fan and D-kat walking back from Lost Bar to the HoJo around 2am.


    A shot of the insanely huge but fun meet:


    My view of "The Photo to End All Photos" (until this years photo )


    MissChristine giving Fishbulb a head massage at Fantasia Gardens.


    And finally, the tour given to us by some fabulous hostess (gosh, what WAS her name? ) at the Opera House.


    That was last year.

    Some great shots O-nut! I wonder how much more insanely huge it will be this year. And the group tour and seating for the 50 years movie, led by that indeed "fabulous hostess" was wonderful!

    Re: Anniversary Meet Memories

    Wow. I really feel bad for missing out on this. In my dad's opinion, there's no reason to spent a couple hundred dollars on a hotel room just for a bunch of strangers, yet it's good enough for him if they release a piece of porcelain. And February will be my last trip to Disneyland for a looooooooong time, at least a year or two. Hopefully the 4th anniversary will be the best, since that's going to be the only one I can possibly go to in the future. I hope you all have a fun time at the 3rd anniversary.
