A real life fairytale

Once upon a time there was a young man named T. M. Stevens, who decided to attend Bronx Community College to prepare for the accounting profession. One of the classes that T. M. was required to take was Biology. He became friendly with his professor, Dr. Heller. Dr. Heller and the T. M. became fast friends. As time went on, it became clear to both T.M.and the Dr. Heller that the T. M. was not doing well in school.

One day, Dr. Heller called T. M. into his office and said, "T. M., you love your music and you do it so well. Get the hell out of the College and follow your music." And that is just what T. M. did.

As the years passed, T. M. grew from adolescence into manhood. and his musical career blossomed. His fame spread and his face and name began to appear on the covers of some of the most prestigious music magazines in his field. He also added a joy to his personal life, a woman named Taka, who became his wife.

Dr. Heller also moved on with his life, finding the smartest and most wonderful woman in the world. He asked Rachael to become his partner for life and she consented. They were married and then began Richard and Rachael's rise to fame and happiness.

Richard and Rachael, began to explore the joys of both their professional and personal lives, writing books and traveling throughout the world Scuba diving, white water rafting and generally having fun.

One of the pleasures in life that was very important to Rachael and Richard was something they called, The Grand Mouseketour - every year, travels to every Disney Park in the world. Just to fill you in, there are two in France, two in Japan, two in California, four in Florida, and Disney's newest Park in Hong Kong.

In 1991, Rachael and Richard sold their first book which became a New York Times #1 bestseller. Since then, they have written sixteen more books and now have books in seventeen languages around the world.

One day Richard called T. M. and said, "You know T. M., we have not seen one another for thirty-three years. Don't you think that it is about time that we get together? Why don't you and Taka should meet us a Disney World."
And so they did.

They came together for a wonderful four days of sharing good food, exciting attractions like the Hollywood Tower Hotel Twilight Zone of Terror at the Disney Studios, Test Track at EPCOT, and just to be together after thirty-three years of physical but not spiritual separation.

Needless to say, they all enjoyed Rockin' Rollercoaster at the Disney Studios.

And then there is the
Dinosaur at The Animal Kingdom.

and Splash Mountain at The Magic Kingdom.

Yes, it was a magical time that the two couples had playing in the Parks. It was an experience that none of them will ever forget.

And of course, what better way to end a perfect four days? Why, sharing a final meal at Chef Mickey's at the Contemporary Hotel.
This is not the end of the story. Stay tuned in for the next adventures of
T. M., Rachael and Richard.
