Grandson of Anarchy Day 12 Universal

Today we are supposed to be going to Universal and crossing by train to go to Island of Adventure.

We made the breakfast at the villa had a quick dip in the pool and set off by eleven

Arriving there the Shrek queue was going in so it would have been rude not to join them

Next up was the Minions not overly busy we were on within ten minutes.

Somehow, we then finished up at the Transformers of course we had to go on it even though we had already been on it about 6 times last Monday.



The parade came next.







We then went on the lights motor action well can anybody explain what that was all about.







Of course, we couldn’t pass the Men in Black or the Simpsons.



Time was getting on and once again the park was closing at seven pm due to some grad thing, we decided to sack the train ride to the Island of Adventure.

There were hordes of kids coming into the park but they weren’t queuing for any of the rides so I assumed they couldn’t use them until seven.

Travelling down a deserted International Drive we realised his highness was dozing and once the snoring set in we wouldn’t be able to wake him up.

He wanted pizza so we dropped on a CiCis.



The pizzas were pretty good, it had a tidy salad bar and the others said the brownies were excellent. It also had soups and pasta.

It only came to 28 dollars for four adults a child and 20 gallons of pop.

King John was tired and being messy he knocked over a beaker of fizz.

Within minutes Benny was there armed with cloths and a fetching yellow Rubbermaid mop bucket on wheels.





I sensed Christine eyeing his Rubbermaid and wondering if she could get it on the plane.

Doing the cleaning gave Benny a chance to talk to us.

Boy could he jabber on.

All the time he was talking to us his eyes were focusing on the entrance if anybody came in, he would yell Hi welcome to CiCis.

The conversation was weird, “Where are you guys……………. Hi welcome to CiCis………. From”.

“How long are ……………. Hi welcome to CiCis …………. you here for”.
I got the impression he wasn’t a college kid doing a summer job it was his permanent job and he was so proud of it.

I even found out that he lived alone with his mother.

Aww bless.

We left him ten dollars for a tip.

He came running after us outside telling us we had left money on the table.

I told him we left you that because you had to clean for us, and you attended to our problems so put the money in your pocket and buy your mum something nice.

He seemed really nonplussed it left me wondering if they get tips in CiCis.

There was no Oasis on the way home not a bonus because we had about fifty quotes.

Hi welcome to CiCis

Then Johnnie wanted us to call him Bennie and demanded a ten dollar tip.

We left Bennie and grandad at the villa and went back to the outlets for shopping we only wanted Sketchers and Sketchers Golf shoes plus vodka and gin from Walmart we didn’t get back until 10.30. The traffic was horrendous.
