Although...... I have been accused of being a commando.

First of all, thanks so much (I knew you wouldn't let me down) for all the fabulous photos especially the food porn. I don't know if you're aware of this, but I bought Jen some fancy lens for her (what used to be mine) camera just for the purpose of food porn that she blogs now... all thanks to my continuous remarks of how PIO's food pics were just so delicious in the old What's For Dinner thread.

Thanks for telling such great stories of these trips you're taking with your family and meeting these other DISers, I've completely forgotten about the laundry in the washer and whatever else I was supposed to accomplish today. I'm saving the second half for tomorrow.

And thanks for linking me to this TR, the one coming up, I'm really excited.
Are you reading from the start???

If it is food porn you're after, you should (also) check out the Hong Kong TR. I photographed EVERY meal.

And what lens did you get Jen?
And it's nice to see that you get what you deserve......great food, cooked by Jen (photographed first, of course!)

I didn't know they have added tours, I'll have to check that out for when Fran feels better again.

I reccomended it to you more for the view and potential tasting option. The views are spectacular, but I didn't realize there was a tour and destination.
I am planning on heading out along the 17; so who knows? I may stop in on impulse to see if they are opened. But I think I want to stop at Henry Cowell SP more.

Of course, I knew it would be chock full of fabulous pictures!

I'm only on page 25 so far this morning, but I'm craving creamy poached eggs, digging my toes into a beach, dim sum and just squeezing that cutey son of yours.

Oh yeah, I got what I deserved, it's called about 10 pounds since she started her food blog. I got her the lens in the Amazon link that she sent me, a 50mm f/1.8D, you probably know what that is, I just know that she absolutely loves that lens.

I'm anxious for her to get home this evening, I'm taking her on a tour of your thread this weekend!

That tells me that she's cooking fantastic food! Way to go Jen.

And congrats on the new lens. That's a great lens for food porn.

Hey! It's a DisDad.

Thanks for the comments and I'm glad you're enjoing the TR. Have a great holiday; but if you're flying in one week from tomorrow (I assume that's your tomorrow because that would be my today....), then we'll probably just miss each other. Are you heading to DLR only or are you seeing a bit of Cali as well?

We will be doing some non-Disney activities as well. We have some ideas and dates set aside, but we really want to enjoy Carsland and Relax.

Awww, thanks for the kind words. I have a PTR going on right now, and will really be getting it loaded with pictures in just a few short days. I will probably put a smaller TR over on the DVC forum as well.

I've kinda been lurking on your PTR. That's a lot of travel you're doing to get from Marceline to SoCal.

Hardly what your doing for your trip.

14 hour flight, I don't know if DW would be that dedicated to go to WDW or DLR if that is what we had to do to get there.

And now for the Weather Report......



Anyone?




Anyone?



I'd appreciate an update for SoCal and NorCal. It might help me decide what clothes to take.
