Jo writes.....

We find ourselves gathered at the entrance to Disney World.  Everyone seems very excited to see each other once again and anticipates a fun filled weekend.  The weather couldn’t be more perfect.  Not at all like the winter storms with snow stacked roof high  and ice covering the roads that many had left behind. 

The party like atmosphere was definitely inviting.   Bev! Bev!   Has anyone seen Bev?   Hey, Jo….”I’m down here!  Yep,  sure enough,  I knew she wouldn’t miss our adventure  even if it meant she would be kneeling on her skate board determined she would see and do all she could cram into this weekend.  After an unfortunate accident, she had become quite accomplished with this mode of transportation.   As we were exchanging hugs Steve whizzed right on by in his motorized super powered chair He sure seemed to be in a hurry.   Times wasting he said….I have a real thirst!   There’s a brewery around here someplace and I aim to find it.  You all go on ahead and don’t worry about me.

 I saw high atop the ferris wheel was Aletta and Pam laughing and squealing while Donna and Darelynn screamed in  delight as the roller coaster made its way through the loops and turns. 

 

Bev and I planned to check out some of the exhibits.  Marti said she

would pass on the rides for now and go along with us.   Gosh so much to see and do.  We wandered around through the maze of people all there as we were hoping to have an unforgetable fun filled weekend.  

Where do we start?  Marti,  grabbed a map and program listing all the places of interest from one of the park employees….smart girl that Marti!.  We were on our way.

BEV PART 2------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 

Where do we start?  Marti,  grabbed a map and program listing all the places of interest from one of the park employees….smart girl that Marti!. Just ahead of us was Epcot Science and invention center.  Wow! a must see Jo said.   Suddenly Donna raised her voice, clapping her hands to get our attention, remember we need a place to meet for lunch.   Everyone..mumbling amongst themselves..decided we'd meet at Lula's Hula Hut back at Epcot Center  Hey...Don yelled...we needed to get going and ride as many rides as we can before lunch.   Aletta decided to watch and not partake in some of the rides because they give her terrible vertigo.   We didn't want poor Aletta to be bored so we elected her guardian o f all our STUFF while we had fun running from one ride to another.  The girls favorite was the Farris Wheel because it was so relaxing but the guys wanted nothing to do with that sort stuff so they went to all the dangerous rides like the "Hell on Wheels Roller Coaster" or the infamous "Tunnel of no Return"  It was that ride that Pam said she saw Steve and Don holding hands...I'm guessing the ride was too much for them and they were scared.  Don't tell them I saw that....never know maybe we could use it for blackmail down the road.  By this time we were all getting pretty exhausted from the  heat and decided to go to Lula's Hula Hut and feast on some Hawaiian cuisine.  Delicious!   Bev was worried that Lula  might have a big pig roast Hawaiian style meal.  I just can't handle looking at a whole pig on a long stick..nothing like reminding me i t's DEAD and your going to EAT it???  Yuck!  You could turn him into a couple pork chops and I'll be fine.  We were offered complimentary drinks with our lunch but Steve passed because he wanted a simple beer.  It wasn't long and we all began to feel a bit woozy when Pam suddenly noticed something itty bitty running across the counter... I sure hope that wasn't a cockroach!  But then it happened again...something ran in between the salt and pepper shakers...on a closer look it was Jo trying to hide behind a ketchup bottle.  OMG what's going on?....then POOF I am face to face with a jar of hot Chili Peppers.  How could this be happening?  We later found out that a shipment, meant for one of their science experiments, was instead delivered to Lulu's where some unsuspecting  patrons (us) received this serum in their drinks.  After we adjusted to the shock of what just happened we all motioned to meet over behind the napkin holder to figure out how are we going to get us out of this predicament?  It was there we noticed Steve was the only one not reduced in size because he only drank his beer and not the complimentary drink.   Marti, very irritated said...well, how do you like his luck!... somehow we have to get Steve's attention so he can help get us back to the Science center fast and I mean FAST.  Marti then decides to.......

Marti part 3
 
 

.......climb up the napkin holder.   Maybe if I can get up to the top then I can jump onto Steve's spoon and that will get his attention!   Aletta gives me a leg up and I manage to scramble up the napkins and on to the top of the holder.  Just as I start to jump over and onto Steve's spoon, Darelynn shouts "Watch Out" but it was too late, I was on my way. 

It seems Darelynn had developed super hearing when she was shrunk down and she heard Steve muttering about squishing those darn bugs on the countertop.  Steve moved his spoon to smack at some of the bugs (Jo, Pam and Aletta) but he missed.  Since Steve moved his spoon, I landed in his beer with a splash!

When Pam had seen Steve and Don holding hands, she didn't realize they had a death grip on a jug of shine!  Those two had been tipping the jug a bit before lunch.  Good thing in this case, because Steve's aim was off a bit and he missed Jo and Pam.  Aletta had seen that spoon coming and had moved out of range quickly!  Donna was busy trying to figure out a way for Bev to get around, because her skateboard hadn't shrunk and she was stranded up behind the jar of hot Chili Peppers.  Aletta and Pam spied a straw and were sneaking over to grab that for Donna.  Maybe it they could roll Bev along on that somehow.

Don and Bob were no help at all, as they were overcome with laughter after watching Steve swing his mighty spoon at Jo, Pam and Aletta only to miss!  Steve was off his mark a bit today...thankfully!

Jo calls out to Don and Bob, who start laughing even harder, because not only have our bodies been shrunk down, but our voices sound like a high-pitched whine!  Bev stomps her good foot down and says "Shush!  At least my hair didn't get messed up!"

Jo seems to be more worried about her clothes.  It seems they didn't quite shrink down as well as she would have liked and she was pulling napkins apart like crazy and making herself some new clothes.  Sure hope it doesn't rain or she might really be in trouble!

Meanwhile, Donna spies a couple of flies buzzing around.  She wonders if somehow we might be able to hitch a ride on those flies.  After all, if Aletta and Donna can ride horses, then how much harder would it be to ride a fly?  Darelynn finds a few strands of hair on the counter and asks Donna if she and Aletta could fashion a halter from them?

Jo said, "There is no way I am gonna ride a fly out of here!  They are disgusting!"

Steve was lining up for another shot at the bugs, when it occurred to him that things were mighty quiet in that restaurant.  He realized that Jo, Bev, Pam, Aletta, Donna, Darelynn and I were no longer in our seats.  "What, they all had to go to the bathroom at the same time?" he grumbles.  Come to think of it, where are Don and Bob?  That's funny, Bev's skateboard is still here. 

Steve sees a straw moving out of the corner of his eye.  Then he notices something moving around in his beer.  "What the heck...." he roars as he peers into his glass of beer and......

Steve Part 4

  looks real close to see if what he sees is real..yup it is Marti trying to drink all my beer...no way, so I promptly pick her out and shake her off. You would have thought she would have been grateful but was sorta yelling something so I hold her close to my good ear. What I understand is she wants me to look behind the napkin holder, so I sorta ease over and sure enough there is a bunch of the others...well be the Saint that I am I open my lil cigar box for them to get in. As they all marched in I noticed that Aletta and Donna were missing..hmmm so I ask where they were and they hollered something about my fly..nope it was zipped up, silly girls...now being that most of their clothes didn't really fit well, I tore off some of the foil from my cigar pack so they could use it as a poncho, well better than nothing...

 

I am sitting there wondering what to do and thinking maybe another beer from Bob's Home Brew might help me think. I was about to leave the place when in walked Danny, Chase, PB and Karlene,,,,where you going Steve they ask and I say to drink and think...I pull out my cigar pack on show them...wow what happen they say...I dunno I can't understand them, so they listen and Danny, Chase and PB say they can't understand what sounds like cricket talk...Karlene says she understands and will tell us but wants to know where Aletta and Donna are...I said all I can get out of them is my fly is open.....Karlene laughs and says nooooo that Aletta roped a fly and her and Donna took off on it. Well about that time here comes a fly and lands on my shoulder and sure enough it has those two crazy gals on its back.

So now the group is all together some big some small. While they were discussing what to do
I suggested that we pray for a miracle and I was hoping that Angel Kat would appear as Tinker Bell and give us some advice.

Now I know that Jimmie Cricket is very smart so I suggest we go find him and see what he knows

Well Aletta is saying something about stupid bugs and as she was hollering at Karlene she sees.........

Aletta writes part 5
 

Marti hanging upside down with Bev and Jo each holding onto a foot. It seems Marti swallowed way too much of Steve's beer before he pulled her out.  Then she began dancing.  When Steve hiccuped, Marti lost her balance.. Karlene said she didn't say 'bug'she said rug!  Aletta said Marti was 'cutting a rug' and fell.. so Karlene  offered her finger to help her up.  Darelynn hurries to help Jo and Bev pull...The whole time Marti was singing ..Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay, My, oh my, what a wonderful day.  Then, Don and Bob rush over with an improvised bed made from a torn up cigar.  She needed to sleep it off.   Steve says Marti will owe him a cigar for that.. plus a cold mug.  Danny chimed in with yeah,  she owes me one too caused he laughed so hard at her singing and spilled his beer.  Now everyone is hearing that song in their heads..

 

Karlene is looking at all of us smiling and says "everyone looks so cute.. you can come live with me and I will take care of you,  We need to find this Jimmie (hic) Cricket said Steve and get the gang back up to grown (hic) up size fast..Karlene ask if she could carry the others.  Steve says, that may be for the best, hic.  Chase tells us he knows where to look for Jimmie Cricket.. Follow me.. and  they all walk together hand in hand.   Karlene carefully carries the precious cigar pack.

 

I think it best we get this fly off Steve shoulder but I can't seem to get it to budge.  Darn The stupid bug anyway.. So I give Donna the reins.  She  gives a big kick in side of the fly, yells YAHOO and we’re off.  Her experienced hands on the reins made of hair she is in control of the fly.. so we could then be on our way to find Jimmy Cricket.. one by one we started singing,.. Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay, My, oh my, what a wonderful..... STOP.. What was that.. Donna looks and screams............ Part 5

Donna part 6
 
Donna points and screams LOOK!...................                                                                                                                                    There There is a giant black bird and he wants lunch  ; us .  He moves towards  Aletta and I , we decide to fly onto Karlene's shoulder to hide . Karlene calls out help, help us Steve . Steve and Chase try very hard to scare the blackbird away by singing " Shoo fly, Shoo Fly go away and  don't come for another day ."                                                                                                                                         Surprise, Danny comes walking up with a can of  extra large  juicy worms, dropping the worms to the ground telling the blackbird here is lunch now…go away .  Thank goodness the blackbird takes the bait so we could all be on our merry way looking Jimmie Cricket. Doo Dah Doodah. !!!                                                                                                        Aletta "How did we get into this fly mess anyhow when we were planning to have such a wonderful vacation?  "Hope we can find Jimmie Cricket soon and he will be able to help us be restored to our normal size once again.  Karlene screams out  " Steve, Danny, Chase , someone!  Oh NOOOOO The cigar box is empty…where did everyone go?  She begins to sob….This is terrible, I was trying to take care of them and now they are missing. We have to go back to find our friends now ! Aletta and Donna are still on Karlene's shoulder hiding, hoping to be safe from any more hungry birds, flying by or feet that surely would trample us.  ….what a mess that would be?  Still crying " What happen to our friends  Karlene shouts be careful there’s a dog in here… Bob,says  its just Pluto and he wants to help. About that time a couple of crows show up…wow!  Heckle and Jeckle seem to be beckoning us to climb aboard and Pluto will sniff out our missing friends. Great there they are! Good job Pluto, thanks. Arf! Arf!  That was a close one says Bev.  Let’s forget about that silly cricket and ask the professor for help…afterall they are scientists you know. I bet they can remedy this ridiculous dilemma we’ve gotten into…Thank Goodness, here comes Darelynn and maybe she will talk to the professor for us if we ask her.  He will never understand our squeaks and chirping like sounds while trying to get out of this situation..

Darelynn part 7

...but when Darelynn gets closer, try as she might, she can see that everyone is trying to get her to do something, but she can't hear a WORD they are saying...."What happened to the super keen hearing I was supposed to have gotten?"  Just as she was about to cry because she couldn't help her friends, *Tinkerbell aka Angel Kat*, comes to the rescue.  She said, "It's okay, Darelynn...they just want you to contact the professor for help, but I'm buddies with the professor...His name is Peter Pan.  Let's go get him.  I have a feeling this was done intentionally, because, well...you know how men are...they never really grow up" 

So, off we go to find Peter Pan..on the way, we ran into the guys. They were already with Peter Pan.   No WONDER they didn't come when Karlene yelled for them! Peter was trying to be playful and grab Steve's shine...but Steve doesn't find it funny when people touch his shine! They were both tugging to get it away from each other, while Chase, Bob, and Danny were cheering them on...loving a good old fashioned fight.  Steve was no match though, in his condition, so he just kept tipping the jug and getting his mouth under it.  He muttered ...."You may get the jug, but you ain't getting my shine! Dag Nab it!!!" 

Marti turned to Aletta, and said, "Oh GREAT!!!  We came to get Peter to help us, but now Steve went and made him MAD!  NOW what are we going to do?" 

Just then Mike comes soaring in on his trusty little scooter,with Chrissy and Deb in tow.  Chrissy said,  "We're here to save you, Steve...but  first you need to apologize to Peter...and hope he accepts, as he is really the only one who can bring us back to our normal size.  You have no idea how scary it must be for the Angels to be the same size as all these insects and spiders. "

Just then, Mickey and Minnie mouse, who had Jo in tears as they were nibbling on her napkin dress,  came running across the park in front of Steve, and he jumped up on Mike's scooter, yelling, "EEK!  EEK! Get them out of here!  Mike, did you bring my gun?" 

Pam snickered and said, "Put the gun down, Steve...nobody is gonna hurt Mickey and Minnie!   Now that you were so scared of the mice, do you understand how we feel?  PLEASE help us!"  Just then, Don jumped up and said, "Knock it off you guys,...Here's what we need to do......."

Don part 8
 
FIRST there is no help to get them back to normal size     UNLESS we feed them some that SHINE we hope it has not all been drank or spilled or even lost, yeah STEVE because it is HOMEMADE that will be the only way we can get em back to SEMI NORMAL

Then we have to stand back because after drinking it and in there small condition only a drop will be needed but they will feel and act like

they drank the whole jug.

IF that works we can work on sobering them up and getting on with our tour and have some fun

so come one Steve cough it up I know your hiding it somewhere, now where is it , this is a MAJOR CRISIS we have here and I just know you so want to help these poor defenseless "LADIES"

UH OH LOOK at them clouds moving in a think........

Subject: Bob..Story part 9


UH OH LOOK at them clouds moving in I think........
It might be raining soon.  We've got more to worry about right now I told
Don.  Somehow we have got to make things right and get these girls back to
full size.
Steve, I sure could use a drink .my nerves are getting the best of me.
Maybe you and I can talk this over and figure out what to do.  How about it
Steve says sure Bob and pours me a shot of his home made hooch.  He knew my
interest in home brewing that I have been known to make a batch now and
then. Thanks Steve. That's good stuff. Jo was resting. on my shoulder as I
take a sip of the elixir.  Jo watching carefully notices a drop has landed
on the table as I sat my glass down.  She thought that this might be her
only chance to also sample Steve's brew. So she climbed down my shirt
sleeve
onto my finger then to the table.  It was a short distance to that drop
that
tempted her. It smelled sooo good.  After she had slurped up the drop she
felt strange and immediately started to grow. Praise the Lord and get me
some more napkins she shouts.please!  Bob quickly grabs the tablecloth and
wraps it around her.  Whoopee she hollers!  I'm back!  Oh my.that was some
good stuff you have there Steve.anybody wanna dance?  She couldn't control
herself but was so happy to be normal size once again. Steve I don't know
how or why that worked but if you have more we need to share it with the
rest of our little friends.So as it goes when nothing else helped, Don had
the answer and Steve had the cure all along. Since I still had some in my
glass it was just a matter of time before everyone would be returned to
normal size. Aletta and Donna flew around happily as I shouted to the
guys.Quick get every tablecloth you can find..the girls are going to need
them. Steve couldn't believe his eyes and said he knew his brew was
powerful
but never dreamed it had that kind of powers. We all laughed when that
ordeal came to and end and couldn't get out of that place fast enough.
What
to do next...with little time left...

Steve part 10
 

 

 

Karlene was standing next to Steve with her fan and parasol trying to keep the sun off Steve when she looks and sees Steve’s chin dropped down on his chest…close your mouth or you gonna catch one of the Blow flys that Aletta and Donna was riding.

Steve looked up at Karlene and said, woo I didn’t know my shine had all them medical purposes in it and do look, all of the gals that need a few pounds has them and those that didn’t has loss them..why they are some fine looking ladies I do say.

 

Well we could not understand a word that was being said as all the gals was talking all at once, the way it is all the time,

Anyway I look at Karlene and ask her if I look sick and she said no, why. Steve says he hasn’t felt all that good since plucking Marti out of his beer while she was a duck paddling around, Steve said I sure hope her feet was clean.

 

Well Steve looked over at Mike and Danny and says, hey guys since all is sorta normal now why don’t we go over to Frontierland, I hear they have a new saloon over there with lots off fine looking dancing girls. So they agree and Steve reaches up and snatches Karlene's Parasol away and says thanks and off they go ,Mike and Steve racing and Danny trying to keep up all in a cloud of dust.

 

Karlene says well I just declare and walks over to the group just a fanning trying to settle all the dust…Karlene ask Jo, well where we going now and Jo starts to tell her and all them others start talking at once…now no one can understand all this so Marti in her sweet and charming voice says,,,SHUTUP, and they all looked at Marti with her long flashing eyelashes that could charm the rattlers off a snake; and Marti says well why don’t we all go over……

Marti part 11

 

to the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique?  "I certainly could stand to get a full makeover at this point!  I reek of beer and cigars!" I say with a shudder.

On the way over to the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, Chrissy spies the Seven Dwarfs Mine and says......"Hey, we should get those Saints all set up with Dwarf costumes, since there "are" 7 of them.    Darelynn, Aletta, Pam and Karlene after checking out directions to the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, dart inside.  Donna, Jo, Bev and I exchange knowing glances upon hearing giggles coming from inside!

I make a slight detour to pick up some Tigger gear.  Tigger being my favorite guy, I can't leave without some Tigger bounce for back home, even though I have a slight headache from my swim in the beer.

Donna,  Jo and Bev are making a beeline for the Bibbidi Bobbi Boutique when along comes Tinkerbell reminding them to stop off at Tinkerbell's Treasures.   They wave and say, Thanks Tinkerbell!  You are the best, that will be perfect to finish off our special outfits!

After getting the finishing touches put on our hair, nails and makeup we step outside and find Tinkerbell waiting.  She twirls high up into the air sprinkling fairy dust upon us all.

After blinking hard for several seconds we look around and find ourselves at the entrance to Frontierland.  Well look who is guarding the door.....our friend Dave.  He is standing there with a big shiny badge on his shirt. 

He tells us that the Saints have all gathered near the entrance to the park.  So with a sigh, we start to walk over but suddenly Tinkerbell sprinkles her dust on us once again and poof!  We are all at the entrance, Dave included.  Hearing Steve, Chase, Don, Mike, Bob, Danny and PB behind us we turn.  Oh my what an uproar they are making!  You would have thought someone was trying to harm us Angels.

But no, there is Steve fending off the laughter as he tries hiding behind his parasol.  At first all we see is Steve, then we realize that the other Saints are there too!  In costume!  I see Tinkerbell (Angel Kat) has reminded us of her wicked sense of humor. 

Would you believe it?  Look?  There they are, Doc and the rest of the seven dwarfs, but who is that dressed as Grumpy?  Why it is........

Why it’s …

I  have no clue Marti maybe you can find out but I am headed to the top of the hill…to Cinderellas Castle.  I hear it is gorgeous….Bev asks me if I think some of us will  help her along since that was one of her must see places too….sisters of a different mother, lol.  Something special going on tonight and I don’t want to miss it. .  It’s a surprise I tell her….and we are dressed just right for this special occasion.  Looking like princesses we fit right in with the crowd already inside.  Aletta is curious as to what is taking place and is drawn to a long hallway where

She could hear someone speaking very loudly….a word here and there…but couldn’t make out just what was being said.  Another short hall opening into an eloquent ballroom  just ahead.  I noticed some of the guys poked their heads inside and  quickly fell in behind us as we filed into the room where we could hear applause….  We each took a seat intending to stay long enough to hear what was going on.  The announcer appeared and introduced the audience to the first annual charity ball being held at the castle to raise money and bring awareness to the plight of military veterans past and present. The MIA’S  as well as the homeless.   The entertainment was fabulous.  We each had our favorite entertainer.  Music, comedy, it was all there.  The lights came up and in the center of the stage “Grumpy” stands.  Pam wonders what is going on…why is he standing there?  He begins to speak, not grumpy at all but very seriously saying we must never forget our service members….and always stand together to help where we can.  Suddenly, he tugs at the head of his costume While he is still speaking and we see it is none other than General Colin Powell…OMG Bev says under her breath,  it really is him.  I  am so glad we came.  Stars Spangel Banner begins to play, everyone stands, all the veterans stand to salute our flag and this wise man.  Salute returned along with an invitation to members of our group to board his private plane and meet with him personally as he takes us home.
