A new low? Hanging out hoping to catch an update so you aren't a bridesmaid yet again???

Or maybe you are turning into one of those groupies that camped for days and kept Lauren from seeing her beloved Today show............maybe the first ever "Glenn-eiber"

Have you seen Bridesmaid dressses??? Not usually the most attractive things. Still have one in my closet that I will never wear again ( not that I can actually get into it now) 1980s poufy shoulder sleeves.

Not a chance - going for the gold baby.

Sorry, it was just a coincidence that I ended replies at a new page. I wasn't intending to put up a new chapter. But feel free to campout if you want to!

Sorry, I'm not working on an update...I'm copying photos to DVD's, backing up a couple of years' worth of pictures. I have them on an external drive, but like to have the DVD's too.

What a great tour of Rock Center! Lauren did a great job with the descriptions and the pictures!

Beautiful picture of the Cathedral. I love it when shots come out like that.

Baby, Baby, Baby, OH- what a bummer about Beiber! I hope that incredibly well-designed sign does not go to waste.

I also appreciate fine Lego art, so I appreciate the posting of the Lego Prometheus tribute sculpture.

Checking in, what a great trip report so far! I honestly thought I'd just be glad to read the WDW parts of this blog, but the NYC chapters are really interesting! Your daughter is doing a fantastic job of making things come alive! That rockerfeller building seems pretty extravagant, very art deco in style. I loved the pics of the British Trade building too!

Looking forwards eagerly to the next chapters

Nice update Lauren! (And Glenn.) Looks like a pretty cool place to spend a morning. I see there was some nifty banter going. If you are getting nostalgic for the old days there Marv, I have about 150 episdoes of The Phil Harris / Alice Faye show (a must for Disney die hards) and prob 500 Fibber McGee and Molly episdoes.

Since you're a fellow Lego art connoisseur I'll let you know -- the Lego dragon at DTD is actually on loan from my private collection.

Perish the thought! The whole thing is going to at least rate as "interesting".
To borrow (and modify) a quote from the movie "Vacation".....you think you hate it now, but wait'll you read it!

Thanks Squidge. It looked like a great tour, didn't it.

More good stuff to come.

Ah yes, Phil Harris who did some voice work on "The Aristocats". Hard to imagine that Disney employed someone who's biggest hit was "Smoke, smoke, smoke that cigarette", although it probably wasn't considered a vice back then. I'm not familiar with Alice Faye and whether she did any work for Disney.

One in the same. He did Baloo on Jungle Book, Thomas O'Malley in Aristocats and Little John in Robin Hood. Before that, he had a career in radio, first with Jack Benny, then on his own show. I still think the Phil Harris / Alice Faye show was the best in radio. As to Alice Faye, she never did anything Disney, though on their radio show, they had to re-enact Cinderella for their sponsor's daughter's birthday party because Walt Disney ("Old Walter" to Phil) denied his request to check out the reels for a private screening. Walt wasn't actually in the episode, but it still cracked me right up. Hard to imagine the days before VCR's, DVD's, DVR's and Blu-Ray. (Link to that episode is here.)

Old Walter! Wow, you are a Phil Harris groupie.

It's amazing that there are even copies of the episodes you have. Back then, they couldn't imagine that there would be a market for those shows after they originally ran, plus the tape was expensive, so they usually just copied over them. I recently read that only a handful of individual segments of Johnny Carson's first 10 years on the Tonight Show ('62-'72) are still around today...favorite segments of his that were saved only at his personal request.
