Very cool about the number for the phone booth! I had no idea!

And those pictures of Marlene in front of the flowers are awesome.

I like the color one better too. But it is a beautiful setting and a beautiful subject. Marlene looks great. My youngest still wants one of the painted parasols.

Sorry the phone booth didn't work out better. I've read of people calling from all over and getting random people to answer the phone. I would love to surprise my kids one day because you know they just have to take a picture in the phone booth.

Other people walked by and it seemed like they couldn't hear the phone ringing. So, Marlene went over and picked up the phone and talked rather loudly so passersby could overhear. It went something like, “WOW, I CAN’T BELIEVE I’M TALKING TO SOME RANDOM PERSON ON THE PHONE AT EPCOT. THIS IS SO COOL!”

That didn’t work either -- everyone just kept waking. Oh well. It was worth a shot.
Dagnabbit. I was hoping you'd get to ask people if they had Prince Albert in a can, or if their refrigerators were running. Sigh...

I think I have to go with the color one. Seems more in the spirit of Renoir...or Monet...or whoever you're going for here. Durer, maybe?

How did you take that picture of Marlene in the mirror without getting yourself in it??? I have never figured out how to do that!!!

They removed the doors on the phone booths? I wonder why? It's too bad nobody had the GUTS to pick up the phone. OR, they thought it was one of those Disney sounds that they pipe in to give a more realistic feeling.

Aww, it's so nice that she's so interested in another culture like that. It'll be cool to see if she actually continues to improve her French and comes back years later and can speak fluently with the CMs in French!

I like the black and white one better. It reminds me of the opening sequences of old 80's television shows. Like "Live in Color".

Me too! As soon as I set foot in World Showcase I feel the urge to run to France and spend lots of money there... the only difference is that I spend it on the Boulangerie Patisserie

I know there were 0 Judys but 8 Marlenes.

The phone booth calling was fuinny. It is good to have Daddy/daughter time.


Sorry to hear about Judy and Pchef. I know something had to give and she will get used to the idea but I am sure she will miss it for a while. 12 years is a long time.
Congract on her "act 2" as a teacher. On being a high school math teacher.

At least you have to give me credit for reading this time Glenn!!!
Well yeah, but I also posted how you could quickly get the count...so we still don't know for sure if you actually read it!

You think I should just go ahead and post the numbers?

Yeah, she was wearing some Silly Bandz on the trip. I haven't noticed if she's wearing any lately.

I got to have some special time with each child on this trip. It wasn't necessarily planned that way, like this particular occasion, but I was pretty happy that it worked out like that.

Hmmm, you like the original one huh? I thought it seemed like it needed more light or something.

I wish her all the best! And for the record, I LOVE all my Pampered Chef products too! My very good friend from college began her business with them and I have been to many a PChef party and left with way to much merchandise! Tell Judy it's good stuff!
Thanks Molly. It will be an adjustment, but the die is cast now.

Then, I read your post that one was coming and was going to reply-

"Great, short posts are great! I'll be watching."

BUUUUUUUUUUUUUUT, when I went to type it, I COULDN"T!!!!!

Knowing that the post was imminent, I shot upstairs as fast as my short little out of shape legs could carry me, and opened Explorer on the desktop.

THis was WHILE I was scanning the post on my non-typing netbook. Quickly counting I hit reply on the desktop,b ut realized I wasnt' logged in, and today our internet seems interminably S L 0 W!!!! Finally, it logged me in and I could post. UGH!!

I just restarted my netbook and now it is typing fine. BUT PHEW! That was a seriously scary moment of not getting any points!!
LOVE this story!

I am psyched (and incredulous) that it was that important to you. You deserve a !

Wow, and to think if you'd have been 1 minute slower, we'd be forgetting your name right now.

The whole phone booth thing had me laughing very hard! And the shots of Marlene in France are gorgeous. I might be with Judy on this one, I think I like the one in color best.

It sounds like the color one is coming out as the more popular one. Oh thanks! I didn't see the parasols.

You can either:

Take 2 pictures, one of the mirror and another from the mirror's perspective of the subject and background. Then photoshop the 2nd picture into the frame of the mirror so that it appears that it really was taken as a reflection, even though it wasn't.

Or

Stand off to the side just a hair. Which is what I did.

Sorry Yuki, I just felt like being a smart alec for a second.

I saw on Amy's thread that the doors were on, so I don't know what the deal was.

We have several more phone stories coming up, don't worry.

We'll see. I have no idea if she'll stick to it long enough to become fluent.

Now her I was, all set to congratulate you on agreeing with me on my preferred picture....and then you go and call 80's television shows "old"! Some of us grew up with 80's tv shows , and 70's tv shows, and maybe even some earlier than that.

More phone stories coming up for probably a few chapters, and they get better!

I'm sensing a concensus toward the color picture.

Well that was kind of fun, but you know that real fun will be in trying to get someone else to pick up the phone. We positioned ourselves across the street and hung out for a minute or two until some people came near the phone booths, and then I dialed.

Oh my gosh, I LOVE this - too funny! How sad that no one would take the bait.

Somewhere, somehow, Marlene has developed a love for all things France, and Paris in particular.

FWIW, my standard winter hat is a wool beret, so that's what I wore while in Paris in late Nov. some years ago... I was far from alone, and that was not tourist season!

Hi Glenn! Joining In! Very late, but your chapter links helped me catch up.

You have a beautiful family and it looks like you had a successful trip so far!

DH and I were there a few weeks before you and it was quite warm!

Can't wait to read more!
