Longwood Gardens always makes me giggle. When I was a kid, we took a field trip with my day summer camp and our bus driver totally missed turning into the Gardens and we wound up in Delaware.

Sorry, I was on painkillers and my reading comprehension skills were dulled. Sigh ... I fell down the stairs and hurt my ankle real bad. I hope it heals before our next trip in 6 weeks. Will check out Photo Collage Free

You should go, you'd go picture-taking crazy. I haven't even looked at the pictures I took of the Light show yet....just from the back of the camera. I'm not sure that they turned out that well since I only used a monopod. A tripod would've been better.

I think you'd love this place Camille.

Thanks Dee. Yeah, not a bad place to live, huh?

It's not that far from Delaware, so it's not as bad as it would seem, but yeah being in the wrong state is always a little disconcerting.

Now I forget -- did you grow up around Philly?

Actually, the Rules Committee just informed me that they would dock you 5 points if you did that.

No problem at all. I just didn't want you to start using Instagram and get frustrated because you couldn't figure out how on earth I made a collage with it...when really I used a separate app for that.

Hi everyone! Sorry for hijacking your thread Glenn but I don't have a PTR just yet and thought your TR would be the perfect place to tell everybody.

I'm engaged!!!!! Andrew proposed yesterday at the beach. There were about 10 of us there and everyone had known for about a month! It was a big surprise and so awesome. I just needed to share this with my DIS friends.

Yes I did! I was born in Reading, moved to South Jersey, then up to Allentown, and finally down to Blue Bell. My Mom's whole family is from that area and still lives there. I joke that when it comes to sports if I didn't root for the Phillies or Eagles I'd be disowned!

We almost moved to Kennet Square, which I think is around you? Maybe? But then wound up in Blue Bell instead due to some changes with my parents' jobs at the time.

Wow, you've lived all over the....tri-state area! I didn't realize that.

Yes, we're close to Kennett Square. Just a little further west.

Welcome back. I'm sure you wished you could have stayed longer. Tell us, how did you love AKL?

No problem sir! Your photog-wife would love it.
