Say hi to Jim and Oregon for me. I miss the Pacific Northwest.

Second One-I agree the hair on the right could be Judy's...or maybe the left and the right is Grams?????

Third One - And well this one is pretty obvious.....
Well, even with the forensic analysis capabilities the Rules Committee has at their disposal, (even going so far as to ask Judy herself), they could neither confirm nor deny whether that was Judy's hair that Dan spotted on one of the Great Movie Ride pictures.....so, the point for this round goes to Marv. However, an Eagle Eye point will be granted to Dan for his keen eye. Also, an Eagle Eye point is awarded to Rosie for making me laugh with her Judy Garland spotting. That was pretty clever.


Updated scores:

Marvin - 10 Judy-sighting wins, 4 Eagle Eye points
Pat - 6 Judy-sighting wins, 1 Eagle Eye point
Mark - 4 Judy-sighting wins
Rosie - 3 Judy-sighting wins, 1 Eagle Eye point
Dee - 3 Judy-sighting wins
Dan - 3 Eagle Eye points
Kelly - 2 Judy-sighting wins
Magdalene - 2 Judy-sighting wins
Katharina - 2 Judy-sighting wins
Jenn (elphie101) - 1 Judy-sighting win, First Subscriber Honors!
Tanya - 1 Judy-sighting win
Molly - 1 Judy-sighting win
Kathy - 1 Judy-sighting win
Mary Ellen - 1 Judy-sighting win
MissLiz - 1 Judy-sighting win

Yes, she was pretty disappointed last time, but has been practicing with every shower that she's taken since.

I think it's basically the list of tracks that they have for people to sing along to during the show, if you were asked to be on.

But I hear tell if the wind is right, and class is over, she might just appear again, so be ready my DIS friends!"
Wow, Tammie's waxing poetic!

Yeah, it's strange that it seems not to be used as much as the gangster scene.

The Alien thing is just part of the normal boat ride, so yes, maybe it just wasn't working and lit up.

Hmmm, you're making me think back to their reaction. They liked it, but I don't think they were blown away. It was fine though, a good choice.

I did like the Cowboy scene better than the Gangster. I liked the shoot-out, and fire is always good.

I guess it was a good thing he was the rebel spy on that trip, because there won't be another opportunity. He'll never ride that thing again! (I won't leave you hanging -- he does recover in time for lunch.)

Aw, that's great that you still are affected that way even now that you're living closer and probably going a little more frequently.

What a great idea. I wish I could just up and do that on the next rainy day.

Ahh, that would've been a great idea. Then she could have picked one out that worked for her rather than trying to do it on the spot, and selecting one that didn't suit her well. Live and learn.

Exactly....not planned down to the exact ride order, but kinda which ones I want to make sure I get in at some point.

I think so too, but it just seems like the gangster one comes up more often, which is really kind of strange.

That was a scary movie. Especially when that one came popping out of that guy's abdomen.

Yeah, we should've looked that list over at home and had her work on one or two of those. Oh well.

Hmmm, interesting question. I hadn't really thought about that, but I think there might be some truth to it. There are quite a few "inside" things to do, and it's not as spread out as the other parks when you're walking from place to place. Yes, I think it might be!

I don't know, but it sure seems that people report getting the gangster scene a lot more frequently. Very strange.

Yeah, I think her vocal range is not as wide as it needs to be for some songs. Something she needs to work on.

A shame she didn't make it through. to the song choice of Misery (Love Maroon 5!)
Oh, you should definitely do it if you can sing at all. It's just you and the auditioner, like you see in my pictures. That shouldn't be too nerve-wracking. The worst that could happen is you'd get picked and have to sing in front of the whole audience!

I wonder if they'll be more prone to do it near summertime.
Movie-wise, I think I prefer gangster movies like you listed....Pulp Fiction and the Godfathers. (Love the Godfather movies.) A good Coen Brothers one is "Miller's Crossing". But I think I liked the cowboy scene a little better on the GMR, with the shootout and building catching on fire.

Hope the rain let up a little bit longer for you guys on this day. Can't wait to read more!
We were there to do stuff. I think the rain hung around, but we pressed on.

No, the weather at Vero was pre-Debby stuff. Still kind of rainy, but not as bad as this particular day.
