  • Sat, 14:50: Lines are shorter and moving better this afternoon as people finish using their tabs.
  • Sat, 15:00: More trading in line, I traded an Artist Proof pin from the boards for a 20,000 Leagues pin, had a Hidden Mickey someone wanted, etc
  • Sat, 15:04: We're staying in line with Mark who we met last year, and Carol and Rocky and their grown son David. Nice chatting with friends.
  • Sat, 15:05: Almost to the head of line for our last trades. Hopefully they will change the boards soon.
  • Sat, 18:31: After our last boards, headed into the back room trading area, the "shark tank". Avoided the sharks by using Shannon as a guide.
  • Sat, 18:33: Did another large trade with Debbie, a back room trader, mixing pins from me and K. K traded her complete set of small world pins.
  • Sat, 18:45: I like the parting gift (may be the first time)! Jack-Jack from the Incredibles.
  • Sat, 18:47: Said goodbye to some folks, will see others tomorrow at the non-Disney PinCon World trading event at a Disney Springs hotel.
  • Sat, 18:52: Back to hotel in post-thunderstorm humidity. Now taking the bus to Animal Kingdom to do a twilight safari ride.
  • Sat, 18:53: We've decided the Pokemon for this trip is the Magikarp, a fish on its side, gasping. Probably due to Fla. humidity
  • Sat, 19:56: Taking it slow in the sundown in Animal Kingdom. Very humid, pretty warm too. Now in queue for Kilimanjaro Safari, it's twilight
  • Sat, 20:56: Twilight safari was enjoyable, but maybe not worth repeating. Saw lots of silhouettes, driver mentioned some I never spotted.
  • Sat, 20:59: We timed it well, got in line shortly after official sunset time.
  • Sat, 21:01: Decided to try Tiffins for dinner, new table service restaurant. Beautifully designed and decorated, menu a bit challenging for Disney.
  • Sat, 21:05: K ordered chermoula chicken, I ordered seared duck breast. It is hard
  • Sat, 21:08: K is having a hard time avoiding fruit--passion fruit iced tea, pomegranate topping on the bread. They will do plain couscous for a side.
  • Sat, 21:51: Tiffins: Pan seared duck breast, parsnip pur�e, hen of the woods.
  • Sat, 21:51: Tiffins sorbet sampler.
  • Sat, 21:57: Really nice meal at Tiffins, though the kitchen put the couscous with dried fruit and olives on K's plate. Server brought plain when asked.
  • Sun, 01:56: Decided not to stay for the Jungle Book show, in favor of getting back to reorganize was going to be a late night, anyway.
  • Sun, 02:02: Got to the Tree of Life just as an "awakening" mini-show started--really cool effects in projections on the tree.
  • Sun, 02:03: Caught a bus back to resort. Wait was shortened by the Pokemon gym at the bus stop--K battled until she took it over (briefly).
  • Sun, 02:05: Back to room and started sorting pins--splt out ones from a combined trade into mine and Krissi's, reconciled our 'account' for those pins.
  • Sun, 02:07: Further pin organizing was restocking trade books, putting pins from Pixar event that I don't want to keep into books, etc.
  • Sun, 02:07: Very late bedtime--after 2 am. Pin stuff always takes longer than you think...

    Lots of activity at the feeders and in the yard, despite me only filling the feeders off-and-on. Yesterday a brown thrasher kept me company while I…

  • New bird at the feeder!

    A rose-breasted grosbeak. Might be the first I've ever seen--I certainly had to dig in the bird book to decide what he was. My Atlanta bird list…

  • New bluebird house!

    I bought a new bluebird house yesterday, paying an outrageous sum for the copper-roofed model with the predator block. I wanted the predator block,…
