Thanks! Believe it or not, I had to up the saturation on the color a little bit to get it to pop more.

That's okay Tom, I'm glad you found the new thread. if you're like me I usually just check my subscribed threads so it can be easy to miss a new one. I had a very busy week last week too and was having trouble keeping up also. This coming week looks like it will only be slightly better.

I still haven't seen the France movie, so there's still more to explore for us. Hey, I took 3 years of Spanish but you won't catch me trying it out with the cast members in Mexico. Eso sería muy embarazoso, especialmente teniendo en cuenta que tuve que utilizar Google Translate sólo para escribir esta frase.

I'm having a little trouble remembering exactly what the weather was doing during this time. I see some ponchos in the pictures, but I don't think it rained hard. "Very moist" though, is a safe bet and I do know that it gets worse later.

I think I'll post all of the numbers I gathered in a later chapter.

The Gershwin! That's a good summary....and when you threw "food" in there, even my ears perked up.

Also, I can't wait to call one of those phone booths.
Thanks...it's kind of fun to play around with some of the effects in Photobucket.

Like I mentioned to SurfinTX, I'll list all of the phone numbers I collected in a later chapter.

Ooooooh, now I really like this one! Sweet Marlene just pops against that black & white background. I vote for this one over the original. Love her expression too.

Actually not at all. I figured out the Spanish I learned in school was Proper Spain Spanish and pretty useless when conversing with any one not from Spain.
Sad to say but that is when I stop paying attention in Spanish. I took 4 years and pretty much only feel confident in asking where the bathroom is.

I can read Spanish well enough to pick out the general meaning of things. Yes I did get the jist of the phrase. I used Google translate to confirm.

That's a wonderful tool. My DS may need to know about it.

I have all three of the numbers for the England phone booths if anyone wants them, sounds like Glenn has all of them as well. Very cool! I really wanted to get one of my kids to answer but they were never together in England. I also wanted to throw on my best British accent and surprise someone in the park....I just never had the guts to do it.








I think my favorite is the Marlene-in-black-and-white, but Judy likes the color one better. I have no idea which Marlene likes! Anyway, which one do you like better?

COLOR

This conversation sounds strangely familiar.

And you thought I was your problem child........
I know that was a tough decision for Judy since I know with things like that you not only make some really good business associates, but also some good friends! On the bright side, you guys don't have to plan around PChef trips any more so you can schedule your visits to Disney when we will also be at Kidani and Judy will get to see me more.

As for that last part of your update, I will be back to comment later when I've had the chance to finish reading it.........
So you could insult me in private the last few days

Camille and I were fortunate enough to have dinner together while I was in Houston in Oct. We ate at Chuy's ( Mexican) and surrounded by all the Spanish influence it came up. I always put the disclaimer out about me not being able to speak Spanish because I look as though I should know how to speak the language. Yet I am spaz and can only fake "spanglish" Knowo whato I meano?

Impressive. However, that's a lot more words than are necessary, with the right body language.....if you raise your eyebrows real high and dance/tiptoe a lot, all you have to say is "Bano?" and people will immediately point the way.
