  1. I well remember Disney as a Disney Land though, the children today are so lucky if they're able to get there.

    Have a lovely day.

  2. Gaston: Were you in love with her, Beast? Did you honestly think she'd want you when she had someone like me? (beauty and the beast)

    don't let your eyes fool you, but follow your heart. Beauty lies deep inside and you'll find happiness when you discover it :)

    "Eating greens is a special treat, It makes long ears and great big feet. But it sure is awful stuff to eat." - Bambi
    Thanks for the giggle!
