And that is more than I can say for many of my Scrappy pals that were trapped at various airports around North America. I must say that in all my years of air travel this is the first time that I have experienced such severe delays and cancellations due to weather. However, I find that I am not really as upset or put out as were many people that I encountered yesterday. I knew that sooner or later we would get here. Face it, we humans think we control the world but realistically it is Mother Nature and Old Man Winter and if they are bored with their lives you know that they are going to be throwing curve balls at us for their amusement. I mean who ever heard of +5C in Saskatchewan in the middle of January...............-50C yes, +5C not until this year.

So after a long day of not eating Bob and I were ready to head off to this restaurant that we discovered last year and were eager to return to this year. BUBBA GUMPS. I lurvvvvve this place. So I thought I would share with you some photos of the cool memorabilia that you find.

Here is the front of the restaurant.... I must admit that I am totally clueless as to why this person had an umbrella open because it was a wonderful night and very dry.

This has to be the most fun about this restaurant are these license plates. As long as your license plate is blue.........staff go about doing their thing.
But if you flip it to this plate no word of a lie, the very first staff person to walk past your table will stop and attend to your need. Your not told I will get your server to do that or any of the other standard lines one gets in this situation. In our case the manager was walking by and she took our order for dessert and brought the drinks we asked for. Speaking of drinks.....Not sure how this all started last year but I took pictures of Bob with all these cool glasses that we got. So here is this years photo I actually really like these glasses they are nice and heavy.....oh and we did not have to take the dirty ones home with us......They sent us to their little market and gave us brand new ones in their boxes.......that alone was worth the cost of the glass.I apologize for the crappy photo, I so have a lot to learn, but the tables are covered with Forest Gumpisms. This is so cool.I love the movie memorabilia that is all around the restaurant. What I hate was that there are these low hanging lights that hang in front so its really challenging to get a good photo of them. Guess when they designed the restaurant they never thought of us crazy nut bar hobbyists (to quote Rambling Dave from C95). I will give great ackolaids to our server Andrew who did not flinch or give me the `dumb` tourist look when I asked for sheets of the printed paper that they use in their tin buckets and baskets they serve the food in. So watch for some really fun layouts coming up with it.

Before we headed home we stopped in the market place and acquired the Bubba Gump wear, and I picked up some cool stickers and Postcards to use in my layouts....had to have them you know they were so dang perfect!

Well Friday is CHA Supershow day so I hope to have some photos to share with you all in the next 24 hours or so.

Thanks for stopping by!

LOVE it! This is why I travel with zip loc bags. NOT so my shampoo doesn't spill (who cares about that???) it's so I can keep all my ephemra seperated into their own days/events! Crazy nutbar hobbyist, yes I am. LOL
