Jenbears reference to the horn made me laugh because I remember the story.

So you tried as hard as you could to take control of you luggage only for them to get it anyway. Hopefully it will arrive safely.

I am keeping up even though you logged 8 pages in your first day. What a blistering pace! Loved your first installment.

I want to know where in SE Pa you live so that you can get to BWI in 1 1/2hrs cause that's how long it takes me to get there. But I love BWI and prefer it over the Philly airport. Farther, but better.

Poor Judy. Sounds like some hectic days proceeding the trip, but she is all smiles!

Proof that change isn't always better. Sometimes leaving a good thing alone is well, good. So glad y'all got to where you were going without any hitches.
I did figure out why I had trouble last year -- the Southwest baggage claim is in the A side of the terminal, while ME is in the B side. So there ya go.

I was pleasantly pleased with our stay.
It was a very nice resort. I don't want to give my overall assessment yet....but, it was nice.

Great start!! I was laughing out loud when I read about the "horn" problem from your previous trip!! I can just picture you all being mortified in the parking lot and trying to drive away - but the noise is still following you!!

You must post a picture of Swiffer!!

And in regards to the battle/war: Coke/soda!!

Yeah, no big story there so I don't mind giving it away. It will arrive safely.

I'm about to faint. I'd be in bed if I wasn't here trying to load some Photopass numbers....which takes forever!

West Grove. I can get on Rt 1, (oh, not the route 1 near you), head into Maryland and pick up 95 below the tolls. And we don't have any chicken trucks over here to contend with. just kidding

I'd rather drive to Philly, but the fares out of BWI were WAY better. It was a no brainer.

She was a trooper. Wait, that looks like State Trooper. Maybe it's trouper? I don't know. She did great, and everything that had to get done, got done. Everything else, well, didn't.

Oh you have no idea. That is a 100% true story.

Here's an older picture that I posted mid-way through my 2009 TR. It's the easiest one for me to get my hands on at the moment.

Hey Glenn,

Great to see you are on your way. I love the picture of the entry gate. We never seem to get one, at least not that good, and every time I see it, I'm reminded of National Lampoons version "Wally World."

We have used the baggage pick up because we pack an extra set of clothes in our carry ons.

As for the beverage debate: Coke and Pepsi both hurt my stomach so neither, and in my life it has been Pop while living in Colorado and Soda while living in Washington State.

That pup of yours is cute, but I would worry about the name Swiffer. Does your dog first wet the floor and then wipe it up afterwards? Just wondering...

Love the picture on the shuttle bus! It's always fun when you have outgoing strangers join in.

I was cracking up picturing you eating your cookie.

What a neat science experiment! I never would have thought of that. I'll have to try to remember for next time I fly with the boys.

Yeah, we called it "pop" where I grew up, but they don't down here in this part of the state. It's funny you mention this today since my kids and I just had a discussion about this. They're siding with the locals and calling it "soda". We got pizza for dinner tonight and James asked if he could have a soda with it. I wouldn't let him until he called it "pop".
My family in Chicago call it POP, and my mother always called it POP. My kids grew up in MA where it's called it "Tonic" - how weird is that? I grew up mostly all over the South and any dark cola was simply referred to as "coke"; When ordering a real Coke, one would ask for Coke-a-Cola, otherwise we just asked for a coke - I still do. In most of the Southern states the waitress would not say "We have Pepsi", they will just bring whatever, no questions asked. In Boston, I'd ask for a "coke" and the waiter would have to tell me if it was Pepsi - still makes me giggle. People can be so picky!!

So what do y'all call a milkshake? In Boston it is a Frappe (pronounced Frap)- if you ask for a milkshake you'll get milk and flavoring mixed together, no ice cream added. In RI it is a Cabinet with with ice cream, a milkshake without.

Your pup is darling! Is s/he a Bichon?

Ready for the next installment, please.
