Default Grandpa Mohawk and BroganMc (Jen) Live in Orlando for October month

Hi everyone,

We're here. Made it to Orlando yesterday afternoon. Listened to a dismal Ravens loss to the Steelers (congrats my Steelers friends) while we grocery shopped. By the time we finished our room was ready. I got a text on the way to Disney via local roads.

This is our wake-up view this morning. I took this around 6:45am, just at daybreak. It's lighter now.



We're dealing with a few bad luck issues to begin the trip. GpaM is still recovering from some nasty psoriasis leg sores. His legs are all wrapped up tight. We'll got the bandages off tomorrow night.

He broke one of my car mirrors on the way into town. That's after it took him 30 minutes to convert the van over to my controls from the autotrain. And instead of grabbing my work folder off the Dining Room table, he grabbed my nephew's ID folder with SSN card. I have to overnight it so he can start working on Wed. And Nephew only packed one old wheelchair charger with a dodgy rep instead of the two new ones. Brohawk flies down tomorrow and is bringing one of our chargers. I ordered a spare on Amazon. That gets delivered Wed.

So life as usual for the GpaMohawk Clan.

BLT staff couldn't have been nicer to us. On the way in the door I literally crossed paths with Bob the Engineer who fixed our apt door real nice last March. We recognized each other instantly and he came right up to fix it again. Love that guy.

When I came up to the room (9th Floor this time, Mermaid floor, room 7912), a waiter was there delivering us this sweet treat welcome plate. Everything's chocolate with cream filling. I devoured most of it but left some for Dad in the fridge.



Look, there's even a hidden Mickey on the dark chocolate covered strawberry.



Hallowishes fireworks were last night. Again Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. I grabbed my dad's phone to film it but haven't downloaded it yet.

I'll post more later. I'm hoping to shower, get breakfast and hop over to the Post Office on Turkey Lake to overnight nephew's ID.

Oh and weather is still summer hot here. Getting used to that as well.

We're in town for the month. At Bay Lake until Saturday then we go to Saratoga for a week. Two weeks at Cypress Harbour after that.
