September 20, 2013: Frank De Vol, Orville and Wilbur Wright and Crispin Glover.

Frank De Vol was born in Moundsville, West Virginia in 1911. Frank was an arranger, composer and actor writing scores for movies, working with Nat King Cole and Tony Bennett, composing themes for Family Affair and The Brady Bunch and playing the bandleader on Fernwood 2 Nite. De Vol wrote the scores for Herbie Goes to Monte Carlo, Herbie Goes Bananas, The Ghosts of Buxley Hall and Tales of the Apple Dumpling Gang. Hit The Backlot Tour and look for Herbie the Love Bug in honor of Frank.

In 1904, Orville and Wilbur Wright flew a circle in their Flyer II. It important for a plane to be able to take off, fly to its destination and return to its point of origin and the brothers got the job done. The next time you fly to WDW don’t forget how important it is to be able to fly back home (no matter how bad you want to stay).

Crispin Glover just strikes me as one of the most awkward humans on the planet. Glover was born on this day in 1964. Marty McFly’s dad in Back To The Future, he also played the Knave of Hearts in Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. I really enjoyed Alice in Wonderland but the freaky, body CGI on the Knave was a bit disconcerting. Enjoy some time with Alice and her friends at The Magic Kingdom.

Remember, your best excuse is always: waiting for your dreams to come true.
