Whish


Well, this is exciting! I went over to Epcot's Innovations and learned more about the Segway. I found a brochure that told about being able to try out the segway and take a two hour tour! So, while Mom and Dad were slowly finishing up the world showcase at Epcot, I hurried back to Innovations for the time period set up to trial the segway. It was very cool! The guy (employee) giving me the segway summed me up quickly as 6'2" as his son is about the same height. They were telling everyone to place their feet in the center of the segway, but he said, that didn't apply to me as my feet were big enough to take up the whole area for feet! (his son has size 15 shoes as well) It was so great! The segway checks your balance 100 times a second, that's 600 times a minute! So, I decided to sign up for the two hour tour on Thurs morning! We will spend one hour indoors and then the second hour will be riding the segway around the World Showcase at Epcot (that's where they have all these great buildings representing countries from around the world like Germany, Italy, China, Norway, Mexico, Canada...). So I am really looking forward to this tomorrow! (Not that we haven't been having a lot of fun the past two days at Disney World.) Last night I told Mom that I thought it would be good for me to have a harness with a leash. Mom asked if I would give Dad and I each one of the leashes and then I could pull them up to me. No! I meant then they could control how far ahead I am of them. I remind Mom of her dog, Thunder, who would race ahead and then wait til they caught up with him on long hikes.

Sounds like a lot of fun!!! Did Mom or Dad get to go too?
Hope you've had a great time.
I'm in Nashville this weekend. Looking forward to Thanksgiving!
