Lots of events but not many really significant in my mind (aside from 101 Dalmations).

BTW, Indy- You seem to be the epicenter of puzzles and cryptic messages!!! Any more clues for us on your previous 2 cryptic episodes? Now you're throwing the EPCOTFileds to us!!!!

How many of the Kim Possible missions have you done? They're a hoot, aren't they?

I've completed four missions so far. Mexico, Germany, Japan and United Kingdom.

As far as 23 is concerned, I don't have a damn clue as to what is going on.

And the others, well. No clue either. Seems the trail went cold after the last message.

Well, I guess that makes you the primary enabler since you post the fuel weekly for the "This Week in Disney History" addicition!!!! Maybe we should start DA (Disney Anonymous) meetings for the hard core addicts.

Anyway, thanks, Indy! :thumleft: The posts are always fun to read and reminisce :D
