    Lola does DCA and the B-52's on Mother's Day by Pratt55

    Months ago I found out the best party band EVER was going to be playing the House Of Blues in Anaheim on Mother's Day. On NYE Fishbulb and I had made a pact that if they came to Anaheim we were going so our date was set. We were to be chaperoned by Dustysage, Timmy, MCow1 and Mary Read. I have no idea why they thought we would need so many chaperones .

    Saturday morning we attended family duties for Mother's Day and saw this couple by the side of the road.



    What you can't tell is that these are about 16 feet tall.



    By 10:00 we were on our way to Anaheim. We made our usual stop at Hadley's where we picked up some licorice (including some Grape for Rixter) and Mead wine for my son. Since it was close to lunch time and we were in no hurry I did as one of my favorite mods has been telling me to do and we stopped for lunch at:



    Hopefully now Pengy will not use the big mommy stick on me.

    They have REALLY BIG chicken dinners!!



    Timmy and I split a patty melt and onion rings. When we saw the size of the sandwich we were glad we had decided to share. We did some shopping in the antique store that is attached and I found a great little purse and some earings.

    We arrived at our hotel the Hilton Suites at about 3:30 and decided to get in the jacuzzi and relax. Pictures and a hotel review will be posted soon in the Southern California travel section. After our soak I gave Fishbulb a call to confirm we had made it and make plans for the following day. He invited us to join him and some of his family to Shabu-Shabu. Being hicks from the sticks we were not sure what kind of tantric thing this could be but after reassuring us that it involved boiling water, thin sticks and edible things we said sure we would play along.

    After meeting up at the Block in Orange we found out it would be awhile for our turn at the Shabu-Shabu so we all went shopping.

    Fishbulb found the sorting hat.



    We were very pleasantly surprised by Shabu-Shabu although it just meant swishy-swishy dinner. It was a lot of fun and I personally enjoyed being the only bun with 7 hunky hotdogs.



    Mother's Day morning we awoke early and headed to the park. I had to renew my pass. I was dismayed to find out that the CMs working the AP Center (mostly all mom's) were not given carnations. I had to remedy that, so I gave my carnation to the CM that handled my renewal then went and got more for the other moms that were working.

    Some nice shots by Timmy















    Me contemplating who I will get to ride Space Mountain with me.



    My ode to Rixter and all flower hat people everywhere.



    We decided to go to Fantasyland for some rides. It was strange other than Peter Pan the rest of the dark rides had little or no wait.



    The mural at Mr. Toad's Wild Ride



    Snow White's Scary Adventure







    We then went on Pinocchio where there was no one in front or behind us so we asked the CM if we could take flash pictures and he said OK since there was no one we would be bothering.























    Even when we came off Pinocchio there was still no one in line, it's almost like no one realizes that the other side of Fantasyland has dark rides too.

    Some more pretty shots by Timmy





    We ran into sirclinksalot and after exchanging pleasantries we headed over to say Hi to the always lovely Belle. We finally got to meet the clinkerkids and Belle's mom who could not be a sweeter and lovely woman, I know now where Belle gets her beauty and grace from. I got to see the shirt that Clinkerkid 2 had gotten at his first concert, Rush. He was so proud. They headed off to breakfast and we headed over to DCA to go and see the Animation Building. We sat on one of the couches and watched the movies for about 30 minutes just enjoying ourselves and relaxing. We knew we were having an early dinner so we had a late breakfast/lunch which consisted of a Spicy Sausage corndog for Timmy and a stuffed pretzel for me.

    We then headed back to Disneyland and saw sirclinksalot heading down main street to the meet so we joined up with him to say Hi to everyone. It was great to see everyone especially to get my Mother's Day hug and kiss from Legally Brunette's cutey patootie. We really did not take any pictures of the meet other than these:

    Indiana Jenn, Monorail Man, Pratt55 and sirclinksalot



    Hat's off to all of you.



    It was time for us to head to the hotel to get ready so as the groups dispersed for lunch/rides we headed out.



    Coming up Lola, L.O.L.A. Lola

    Re: Lola does DCA and the B-52's on Mother's Day by Pratt55

    After arriving at the hotel to get ready for the concert I got a call from my date who was feeling very, very under the weather and so I decided that if he could not go neither would I, so off to sleepyland I went. When I awoke some mystery man was denying anything at all had happened the night before.



    He finally decided to tell the truth about what transpired as long as he was not identified.



    Somehow Lola got into our room.



    Timmy snuck out the hotel with her. She met up with my date to pick up tickets from Fishbulb, he thought he was not feeling well before, and then Lola walked into his life.



    Mary Read told Lola that she had better be on good behavior or else I would be awoken from my sleep.



    Lola is part cougar and instantly took a shine to CaptPhoebus



    After dinner at the HOB Lola demanded that her entourage take her to DCA. My sympathy goes out to Mary Read, MCow1, CaptPhoebus, Monorail Man, and Timmy as they had to guard her from the paparazzi.





    Lola wanted to go on TOT and rumors have it that what Lola wants, Lola gets.



    CaptPhoebus and Monorail Man had to remind her to keep her hands to herself.



    She thought this was her trailer



    Oh Lola



    Next Lola wanted to go on Screamin and again she demanded that her entourage accompany her. She told everyone to wave to Timmy and even the people knew that this was not a woman to mess with, just do whatever Lola wants.





    Lola and Monorail Man


    Mary Read, MCow1 and CaptPhoebus



    According to Timmy they then went on Soarin and headed to the B52's concert. The music was great, the venue not so great.

    I am hoping next month to see the B52's here in Phoenix unless that Lola shows up again and tries to take my place.

    Coming up shortly. Part III, Returning to a former family home and Lola gets escorted out of CA by the Marines.

    We love those giant people! Were those taken by Cotton Lane/ 303?

    We also try to stop at The Farm House on the way back from DLR. It's a great little home cooking greasy spoon!!!!

    Your photos are great, if you don't mind me asking what kind of a camera do you have?

    The giant people are those from your neck of the woods, the 303 and Cotton Lane. I love the giant baby also but we did not get that picture.

    Our camera is a HP PhotoSmart R707, its pretty old as far as digital's go but I still like it a lot and I am addicted to using a viewfinder so its going to be tough for me when we upgrade.

    You lose on PERV points. That's a rooster Lisa not a CHICKEN, if you know what I mean.
    Stalking is when two people go for a long romantic walk together but only one of them knows about it.

    Monday morning I woke up after a full afternoon and night of sleeping. Timmy woke up dragging a bit and after explaining his date with Lola I almost felt sorry for him. We headed down to the jacuzzi to relax where we found we still can bring the rain to California. When we first got out there it reminded me of my Washington friends with the drizzle, but by the time we got out of the jacuzzi it really started to rain. After packing up our room and checking out we decided instead of going to the park for a few hours to go see where Timmy lived from 5 to 7 years of age in Pomona, CA. Although sometimes I think Timmy is the leader of the CRAFT club he sure remembered his childhood home. Fortunately for us the owner was out when we arrived and after introducing ourselves and explaining why we were there this gentleman allowed us to come into his home and showed us what it looked like now.

    Timmy and his brothers on the staircase.

    The living room then and now



    The front entry then vs. now (check out Timmy's cool PJ's)



    This gentleman has lived in the home for 22 years now and he got just as big a kick out of showing it to Timmy.



    Back on the freeway someone must have called the Marines about Lola because they brought in at least 5 armed escorts to make sure she left the State of CA.









    Bye-bye for now
