Happy St. Patrick's Day! 2011

I went to the park recently and saw this
St Patrick merchandise...
I just had to laugh...
You to can hold your stuffed
"Leprechaun Mickey",
get drunk
out of your Mickey Beer glass...
all while wearing your 2011
St. Patty Day Ears!!!
and when you get so drunk on St Patrick's day
and you loose your pants...
Don't worry, You're wearing your
So here's wishing you all the Luck of the Irish Tonight!
I hope you're wearing your boxers!

1975 - Where DL paychecks come from

For years we punched our time cards, watched the leads put in all those little numbers
and waited for our checks to arrive...well I just found this GREAT article from a 1975 Disneyland Line [and yes it was printed on pink paper], all about the Keypunch Operators and the Data Processing Dept.,the women who took those little cards with all the punches,most the time with more eraser marks and scraches, and turned them into TIMECARDS! ENJOY!
I love that in 1975 the
"Studio in Burbank houses FOUR computers!"

Wow how times have changed!!!
it makes me wonder how many of these women
are still with the company!

Kids of the Kingdom

Here are some rare shots
of the "Kids of the Kingdom"
This first group of pics are from
Mickey Mouse's 50th Birthday tour.
Here are the "Kid's" performing
The show "The Disney Medley"
in Balboa park San Diego, Spring of 1978

He's a Tramp...
and Donald and Goofy bringing in
Mickey's Birthday Cake
These pics are shot over at the temporary stage
that was put up in the Small World area
during the construction of Space Mountain.
[taken Fall of '76 or Spring of '77]

Now we're over at the NEW Space Mountain Stage!
A friend gave me these pictures
and even though there a little blurry
It's still fun to look back at the LIVE shows
and performers that once entertained
