Okay, I'm going to be attempting something a little different, since I was not able to post last night I am putting something out this morning. If this works, it will be how I operate for the next few day...

Jason had a good start to the day and we were all ready to go, almost exactly at noon, and that is when I wanted to be headed north, to Anaheim. We had a lite breakfast, and effectively no lunch, so we were both kind of hungry when we arrived, but then I'm getting a little ahead of myself. Anthony Netto arrived right on time and we loaded up the truck and the van and that all went without a hitch. He had bought a new type cover for the two paramobile units he is carrying, and it works great. It is kind of a heavy, almost canvas, cover that we can tie down - very effective. The drive up was good, and much less traffic than anticipated. We wanted to arrive at about 15:00 (3pm) and showed up at13:30 (1:30pm). Because we were so early, and no one else was there, it seemed there was a little confusion, but that got corrected quickly. Disney runs a pretty good organization.

The rest of the group, from Salute to the Heros, by The Gary Sinise Foundation showed up at almost 16:00 (4pm), and we finally were able to go in. It was very similar to the Salute to the Troops welcome with the exception of the fact that we were actually there this time. Jason was in the front of the line and therefore we were also the first into the main ballroom where we could get something to eat. It wasn't a regular meal, but it was some nice fresh fruit and cookies, and something to drink. They went through the greetings and we got to see some familiar faces, including Jason Redman, who has become a good friend of Jason's.

The next stop was for dinner at Bubba Gumps, where everyone seemed to have a great time. We found out there that the next day (today) we will be heading over to Disneyland park and have an executive guide with us. We will be a part of six, so it will be a nice small party and we can get the attention that we just might need. Right now we're getting ready to head down for breakfast, and see about getting this show on the road. Not sure just how much of Disneyland Jason is going to be able to enjoy, but we ready to give it a shot. Thank you, for all the continued prayers and support. Take care and stay positive.


  1. Hope you had a great time at Disneyland! Haven't seen Mick in a long time!
    Lamentations 3:21-26 This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him. The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him. It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD.
