I didn't think that I would like it, just because it was not Disney... But was I ever so wrong! Now, of course, it's not Disney, but it has so much to see and do, I just loved it. This will be our second trip there...


Disney is such a magical place, I know what you mean. My brother has been to Universal and he loved it, he can't wait to go back!

We don't put anything over the pool during the day. We have had ducks in the pool before, but these two keep coming back. At least I think its the same two

Good afternoon, MMC!

It is getting cloudy outside so I had best get going if I want to look at the gardens. This morning there were new kittens on the porch. I didn't have time to move them before I had to leave - they were gone when I got home a little while ago. I think I might take a nap when I get in - so tired!

Be safe and MERRY!!!

I will not complain about the ducks anymore.
I hope the bear goes away peacefully mgramsey.

That is SO unfair ... I certainly hope there's proof that you paid. You certainly don't need the additional aggravation. Don't let it spoil your vacation. You need some enjoyment.

I assume black bear? Do y'all have quite a few in the area? We have a growing population around here. We've also had issues with mountain lions in recent years getting very close to populated areas.

Hope y'all are safe and don't have to be eating bear! I have a friend who's a big hunter...he says it's very fatty and greasy meat, by the way.

If you gave it to him and have the receipt, it's his problem after that...he's responsible! Hope it works out for you. And hope you have a very fun time on vacation!

thanks guys!
I know it is not my fault, his, it just bugs me that he would blame me for it.
Found out I am not the first to go through problems with him, I think maybe it is time we got together and went to the board about getting someone else to manage the place properly.
