There are 29 days of school left in this school year. 29 days. Wow! If we hadn’t missed any days for snow, we’d only have about 18 left but it is always awesome to have 2 full months off (we go back to school August 1st). As I mentioned the other day, we will be at WDW in June so life is good.
Today is tax day and I spent a lot of time finishing up the taxes and sending them in so I apologize foe an abbreviated blog today.
On this date in1917, comic character actor Hans Conried, the voices of both Mr. George Darling and Captain Hook in Disney's Peter Pan, is born in Baltimore, Maryland. Additional Disney credits include: The Cat From Outer Space, The Shaggy D.A., Davy Crockett, King of the Wild Frontier and The Story of Anyburg U.S.A. Conried was also a cast member of The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show, voicing the character of Snidely Whiplash in the Dudley Do-Right shorts! Hmmm, Snidley Whiplash and Captain Hook are the same person… Peter Pan’s Flight sounds like a good choice but use early morning extra magic hours and hit it when the line is lowest.
