Marlene looks adorable in her beret!! So glad she was able to get exactly what she wanted. Great picture in front of the flowers too - is that normally a fountain though? Or is the fountain in front of the flowers?

That's disappointing that no one wanted to play along with your phone game. Losers!

Well, I understand how Judy must be feeling, calling an end to PChef. But teaching is such a demanding job - it would be really hard to keep it up, I think. No more free trips is kind of a bummer, though!

Hi Glenn! I'm here.....finally. Sorry I kinda missed the invite to the new thread until I looked today I'll have to catch up later cause I'm still at work but I will mention quickly, sorry to hear about Judy and no more PChef. I hope at least she enjoys her teaching!

ETA: Okay work died down a bit so I got all caught up. I HAD NO IDEA YOU COULD CALL THE PHONE IN THE UK!!!! That's so cool! Sorry I got a bit excited there... but seriously. Too bad you didn't catch anyone actually answering the phone. Spoiled all your fun! I like the picture of Marlene in black and white the best

Glennbo, I can't believe that (a) your TR has requireed a whole second thread; and (b) by the time I figured this out, you were already on page 7 of thread 2. Sheesh!

In any case, congrats. I feel congrats are necessary here.

Also, I vote for the color Marlene. Though I think you should try a color Marlene with a b&w background, just for kicks.

I'm not sure which picture of Marlene I like better, but I certainly love her beret and I love those pictures of France.

I love that you called on the phone booths and I can't believe that no one picked up. I found those numbers on someone else's TR and I have to put them in my phone for May because I want to try the same trick.

Really fun update. See what James missed.

That's right, I think you were wearing it in a recent update in your TR....when you were wearing several layers, but still not quite Michelen Man-ish.

Good to know that you can still see some berets in France.

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

Can't wait to read more!
DisneyRed95! I'm glad you're joining in! Thank you. It was a great trip.

Oh my gosh, it was super hot during that trip. It's hard to remember now, while we have temps in the teens, but we went about the same time in 2009 and 2010 was much hotter.

No, really it comes and goes. But it's frequently triggered by posts from FauntleroyFAN07 or Marvali.

Thanks. Yeah, she knew exactly what she wanted. I forgot to mention that most of them had a France patch on them, but they looked really touristy. I think hers was the last one that was just plain.

I had to go find a picture from our 2009 trip to be sure, but the fountain is in front of the flowers. So, I must have been standing between the flower area and the fountain.

Oh, you made me think...it's a shame that after the Photobucket manipulation you can't still read that sign in the distance that says "Impressions de France".

I would definitely look waaay to much like Clark Griswold if I did that.

Interesting, that's a couple of votes for the original.

She loved getting that beret!

No problem Kathy, I understand. I've had a very busy last several days and am behind on pretty much every thread I've been following. Some I've been able to read but not post. Anyway, I'm getting caught up on my replies here this morning!

Isn't that great! I think going to a second thread actually helped that a little bit...it's kind of a fresh opportunity to jump in.

Hello my Canadian friend! I probably need to bump that old thread a couple more times.

Judy is really enjoying teaching and doesn't regret doing it at all, just wishes she could have kept the PChef going. But, there are only so many hours in a day.

Yep. And being pay phones, the numbers are listed right there on the front of all of them throughout the World Showcase. So, more fun will be had!

Maybe I should post all of the numbers I either had or jotted down during my World Tour.

Yes, James missed out...but may get another opportunity.

Wow! It only took me all week to find my way over here! Well, my time on the boards have been cut back considerably these last few weeks.

Love your trip so far through World Showcase. On our trip we didn't get to spend much time in France since we wanted to see British Invasion so much. I think all we stopped off for was some Grey Goose Slushies and moved on. So sad considering I took 3 years of French.

It looks like you had some wet weather around this time. I bet it was very moist. Still, Marlene looks like she enjoyed her one on one time with Dad!

and I didn't know about the phone booths. I will have to spring this on my kids someday.

I had a phase in my early life when I was just a little obsessed with Gene Kelly's An American In Paris. So I am in sympathy with Marlene. Ah, France! What young girl wouldn't be lured in by the Beauty! The Romace! The Food!

I like the last image with the B/W background the best. It highlights Marlene beautifully, and I think nullifying the background colors makes it look more like the real France. Very Nice Work!

Also, I can't wait to call one of those phone booths.
