The Star (Wars) Treatment


to bring you up to speed on our Magical Disney trip…

First, our girls seemed to disappear on the Tower Of Terror ride. Disneys_Hollywood_Studios_Tower Of Terror Scared !

It turned out that some of the Disney magic fairy dust only shrunk them; they were never really lost.

In order to prevent some sort of a law suit Disney allowed us to star in their upcoming 7 Dwarfs Mine Ride commercial.

Which we did!

They liked us so much for our happy smiles and marketable potential they signed us to contracts to star in future Disney sparfs flicks.


So, on our final day at Disney, they whisked us on a very quick Star Wars promo spot, also a cameo featuring yours truly, and a photo shoot for future auditions.

They paraded us off as our new adoring fans looked on...

For some reason they thought I was the Yoda character!

As if….

Here we are at our very special Star Wars photo shoot before the scenes were ready to begin…

Disneys_Hollywood_Studios_ EntranceIt was awesome! We were treated like Stars! Like Royalty!  With dignity and respect!

Here is more from our Imperial shoot:

OK, well we are still paying our dues in the Star Wars saga it appears.

Then it was off to lunch with the rest of the Star Wars stars a the local Disney studios’ canteen.

Try rushing ahead of that guy in the lunch line! He will give you the look of death; and actually breaths like that ALL THE TIME!

But we couldn’t stay past lunch cause we were trying to get Dylan back for her last day of school.

Disney seemed duly disappointed.

Caught off guard, they didn’t know how to pay us for our work that week on short notice. So they ushered us over to the Future Track building and paid us with some little sports car to tie us over until our next scenes.

…and on the way out they gave us each a prototype Action Figure set they started working on that morning, telling us they hoped to get them on the shelves before the Christmas holiday.

My little diva was still not satisfied however. Her new popularity gone to her head evidently. And so we had to put her in Time-Out, Star Wars style, before we hit the road.

I would be happy to sign photos or do guest posts at the going Star Wars cast rates….

Have a great week knuckleheads!

Don’t worry, I only have 200 more Disney pics to drop on you.

I told you I we had a great time for our first visit!

Disney Commercial

Well I know some of you figured out what happened to our kids in the last episode of 3D.

Yes, we were in Disney World so there was a very good chance they were shrunk, with all the magic dust flying  around.

Do you here a buzz?

Do you here a buzz?

Well we spoke to the park managers about our situation to see how they could fix our predicament.

We were not happy at the time!

In an effort to appease us (and they did) they asked us if we would like to be part of a Disney World commercial and some marketing advertising for one of their popular family rides, the 7 Dwarfs Mine Shaft ride.

Somehow I got tagged as the 8th Dwarf!

With out hesitation we agreed. They restored our kids to their original heights. They rushed us off to be with all the other high-priced Disney actors. And we became Disney World stars!

So, ‘Hi-Ho, Hi Ho, its off on an acting adventure we go’ for my family and I now! THIS is really exciting!

And really, who wouldn’t want this good-looking group of big happy smiles advertising their products?

All Smiles!

All Smiles!

Any serious offers please speak to my agent…..

Dylan is counting the offers already!

 Have a great weekend Knuckleheads!

Enjoy your summer time weather!

I’ll let you know how it is enjoying ‘the Star Treatment’ in the next episode of 3D.





We were checking into a hotel yesterday on the way home. We entered an elevator taking us to our rooms and we haven’t seen them since!

Here is the happy family shot right before we checked in:

Here is the elevator we got in before our kids disappeared. I should have known better about this place. It looked like it needed some upkeep!

it needed some paint!

We got on the elevator. The elevator cams clearly point that out. We sat down in the last row on the left side.

Then, after an abrupt take off to our 13th floor, the kids vanished!

Here is the evidence:

see us in the back?

I think the place is haunted of something. I heard the hotel had a history.

This hotel video cam shows the whole travesty of that elevator ride:

Please Help!

If you see or hear any word from them will you let us know please!

We want to see their smiling faces again!

I am sorry. I have been gone for a while. Too long really. But I visited a place!


A magical place!

One that can put smiles on little girl’s faces!


And fill them with wonder and awe.


A place filled with magic!


And where dreams come to life.


..and fantasies really do come true.


Gather around! I have some stories to tell!
