The Bonds go to Disneyland Part 2

Here are a few more pictures from my Mom's teenage trip to Disneyland.

I know this is not the DL Hotel, but it still looks pretty awesome!

Jungle Cruisin'

The gang and the Twain. (why do they all look so miserable?)

Pee-wee Herman Art Show!

It's no secret that I love Pee-wee Herman (in case you did not know, the title of this blog is a Pee-wee reference).  Tomorrow is the last day of Gallery 1988's Pee-wee Herman show, so I decided to share a few of the pieces with you guys.

Loner, Rebel

I love these two! (above and below)

Every time I go to the Alamo I ask about the basement.

Everyone I know has a big but, C'mon Simone, tell me about your big but....

Pee-wee held a live chat yesterday and I asked if he had seen the show.  He actually wrote back and said he had seen all the prints online but was not able to go to the show.  Then he asked if I had seen it.  So, for those of you keeping score at home thats 2 tweets and a chat response I have gotten from Pee-wee, does this make us friends?

The Bonds go to Disneyland

These pictures were taken when my Mom went to Disneyland as a teen with her family.  I found a 1975 guide map, so my guess is that was when this trip went down.

First Stop, America Sings

Looks like Sandy and Memaw are having a great time on the Motor Boats.

Here we have Cindy, Nancy, My Mom, Memaw (My Grandma), and Sandy

I have a lot more from this trip, so expect more this week.  Today was just the ABC's

Blogger Appreciation Day

January 2008 is when my profile says this blog was created.  Back then I wrote a few well thought out posts, but no one read them so I eventually stopped.  I started using my site as a place to keep links for all of the other sites I visited.  A year or so later I decided to start it back up.  This was after I had visited Marceline Missouri and thought other people might like to see Walt's home town.

Shortly after I received an email from George over at Imaginerding.  He told me he wanted to include one of my posts in his "Geek-End Update."  I was pretty excited, here was a guy with a real blog who wanted to share my blog with other people!  I then made it my goal to try and write something worthy of the Geek-End Update every week (and I succeeded more than I thought I would).

Another one of my favorite sites is Imagineering Disney, and like Imaginerding I would consider them a much more legitimate site than mine.  So, imagine my surprise when the gang  has my little blog listed under their friends!  Not only that, but they also tweet links to my posts to all of their followers! (Seriously, these 2 sites double my views when they share links!)

Thats what this post is about.  Saying thank you to not only the 2 sites mentioned above, but to everyone who reads this little blog.  I appreciate all the views, follow, and comments (shout out to my frequent commenters: TokyoMagic, Daveland, and Disney renegade Hoot Gibson).  I am going to start paying it forward and tweeting links to great posts too.  There are a ton of Disney related blogs out there and I really appreciate everyone who takes time out of there day to look at mine!

Oh, the 80's

I wonder if these costumes are somewhere in backstage  Epcot?  

The perm is my Mom, the kid my sister, and the barely visible Goofy hat is yours truly.

Katie looks worried.
