As a new owner of a Rebel xsi, who hasn't had time to play with it much, do you put the silhouette/shadow around the outside at the time the pic is being taken? Or is that done in picasa or other photo editing software after downloaded? I'm just doing it in Picasa & wondering if you can do it during shooting?

Oh my gosh Mary Ellen, so sorry you were sick before your trip! It sounds just awful!

With the last update telling of your arrival, I'm anxious to read more!

Hi! I didn't know you had started...well, I'm here!

Sorry to hear about your rough time with your son, but I'm glad it's being taken care of and he's doing better.

Your trip sure started out adventurously - can't wait to hear about the rest of it!

Ugh, I can't believe Denny lost his license the day you left! I'm glad that Chuck was able to pick up the reins and drive the rental!

Now let's see that one-bedroom villa!

I only have time to comment on this right now and YES......I WAS FREAKIN OUT OF MY MIND. From the second I realized Denny really did lose his license I wished we were on ME. Believe me, if I had time to get us on ME I would have done it. It was enough to turn me into MRS I WONT RENT A CAR!

Be back later. Actually have to work a few hours today!

I was right! I had a feeling it was Denny too because it sounds like something Dale would do

I'm so excited you've arrived and can't wait to hear all about it!

Glad to hear Denny was still able to get on the plane without his license!

I always freak out a little in line before I hand over my id I always feel like I don't have it I have also gotten a once over from a security person after she looked at my id picture so it freaks me out a little

Great Disney sign picture!!!!!

Can't wait to see all the rest of your WL pics!

What a great picture!!!

I have to laugh because just this morning for some reason I was thinking that Mr-I-won't-rent-a-car hasn't shown up on the Dis for quite awhile

Yeah. It was more of a minor inconvenience in Baltimore, but Orlando's security was much more intense.

Welcome jgates! I did the shadowing with the iphoto software on my mac. I don't want to overdo it too much, but using the shadowing is fun! I don't do any editing until I download the photos.

Hey Wigd - being sick was not that much fun. I still have flashbacks whenever I feel a twinge of nausea!

I hope to write about our first evening tonight! I'm on a roll this weekend.

Welcome *dreamit*doit*! I am so glad you decided to join in for this TR. Thanks for the kind words about Brian! And yes - we did have a few adventures during this trip. Quite a few mishaps and absent minded moments!

I hope Chuck and Cathy will join in on this TR, so I don't want to say too much about his driving skills. Is this tactful enough....... Sorry Chuck, but he knows its true!

Actually, we did stay with the 2BR at VWL. If we had downgraded to a 1BR we would have needed to go to OKW or SSR. Not that there is anything wrong with those resorts, but we really had our hearts set on VWL. Our villa was really cool in the way it was laid out since it was on the corner of the building. I need to find a picture on the Dis so I can show you the layout. Defiantely different.

You were spot on. Wait - I didn't know that Dale was absent minded. Denny usually isn't with important stuff. He may lose his belt and forget to pack enough underwear and socks, but he doesn't lose important documents, money or credit cards. That's my department!

I Love Mr I Won't Rent a Car but I can assure you, you will not be making an appearance in my next TR, because there will be no rental.

More replies soon. Have to check my email really quickly for important soccer game info!

GASP! I would just die if I lost my DL at any time, much less right before a trip! It is good to know that there are ways around that rule, though!!
