I think this is great for people who are into the Disney parties and
especially for families. If you are not into Pirates/Princesses...then this
probably isn't lighting your fire. – QTPie68

Off Topic with ChipDale
Summer’s in full swing,
the kids are out of school, the graduation parties are over and we
celebrated Father’s Day. It’s hard to believe that June passed us by so
What’s blooming where you live? Advnt05 (Atlanta) has Gardenias, Jasmine,
vegetables and Day Lilies, Jeri Lynn (Massachusetts) has Iris, Azaleas and
Rhododendrons, and ldn34 (Pennsylvania) and Tinkerfreak (Maine) both enjoyed
the sweet smell of lilacs coming in through their windows.
Jamie’s Friday parties for June included the Grab a Dozen Donuts as You
Leave the Office Early Party, the Happy Birthday Bret it’s Friday too Party
(in honor of SgtTigger’s birthday), the Fantastic Father’s Day Festival, and
the Start of Summertime Smash Bash. Thank you Jamie, Nigel and Cabana Boys™
for entertaining us each week!
If you could live anywhere, where would it be? redandfuzzy polled
INTERCOTees and got some interesting responses. vizsla chose Honolulu,
Hawaii, RAIDER: “Room Service for the rest of my life at the Sandals
Atlantis resort in the BAHAMAS”, MsMin – a house on the beach near Destin,
aprilisis – Olympic Peninsula on Puget Sound, goofy89 and AvonleaCF – a
penthouse overlooking Central Park, and murphy1 picked Tuscany, Italy or
Santa Barbara. So, where would you choose to live?
Congratulations to all of our INTERCOT graduates! Rosanne (BS, St John’s
University), Sticky Mickey (8th Grade), Mickey052501 (Masters degree), Lacy
(Masters degree, Georgia Tech), snowflakegirl (Masters of Science and Sixth
