Wow..how did I fall so far behind again. I missed three of them

Great updates. I have never been to OMD either, but looking at the pictures makes me want to go.

Where is the box from Gone with the Wind? That is one of my favorite movies and I don't think I have ever noticed it.

I think this will be one of those forever changing exhibits and always changing for the better.

So visit often and takes lots of pictures.
I didn't realize that most of those things were on loan. That's very neat -- I like the thought of the exhibit changing from time to time!

Jackie, was just on Ebay looking at ornaments and happened on some Mary Blair and thought of you! Oh my goodness! So cute and pricey! You must take a look and drool along with me.....
I went and looked at them yesterday! Drool is right! Those Peter Pan ones are precious!!!

Did Ziggy suspect that he was a topic of conversation last night? We were at my parents' for dinner, and I couldn't resist putting sweaters on their Manchesters (my big dogs can't wear clothes, so I have to play dress up with my parents' dogs). Well, Tippy (the girl) was not happy. She was all hang-dog -- acting like it was the worst thing in the world to be wearing the Christmas red sweater. I was trying to convince her it was a good thing and telling her all about Ziggy and his amazing fall/winter wardrobe. She wasn't buying it. Toby, on the other hand, was all tail wagging and preening.

It is over by Echo Lake. There is a big stack of crates -- one is addressed to Rick from Casablanca and another one to the guy from Citizen Kane.

There is a billboard also with Roger Rabbit and the baby for a fictitious cartoon short.

Great updates! I love the green army men. That's so cool that he put Connor through his paces.

One Man's Dream is on my list, too. I think if I end up doing my solo trip next year, I'll go there. My traveling partners haven't been too keen on that, so it might have to wait until I can go by myself!

It was a really neat experience! It isn't often that Connor wants to do things like that anymore.

It is definitely worth seeing! The memorabilia is really neat to look at, and the film is very well-done.

Thank you! It helps that I have to be absent tomorrow and next Tuesday -- cuts down the time a bit!

Ziggy is such a good sport when he gets dressed.....on goes the harness collar and then he puts his head down for the big hole in the sweater and then lifts one leg up at a time. I think he is just humoring me rather than being well behaved He really does shake like a leaf when he is outside though....he is naked on his belly! Although it does get a tad bit colder here He had a nice wool argyle one that I may have put in the dryer....it would be good for a chipmunk now!

I never noticed the references to Roger Rabbit at DHS other than the billboard, love that they have them though I can't believe I missed the windows I'll be looking out for them next time!

Ah, I fell behind and my internet died last night, so I'm playing catch-up! I love that Connor got recruited by the green army men, and I adore that picture of him standing with the green army man! We only saw the toy soldier that didn't talk but made me blush when he pretended to kiss my hand and then held it for the picture.

I love One Man's Dream. I have never seen the film, but I want to. I'm pretty sure we're the same with getting weepy at certain things, so I'm at least prepared!

Can't wait for the 50's PTC update -- we love it there, especially b/c my dad likes to go out of his way to get in trouble. I wanna see if anyone gets in trouble!
