Great update, Lauren. What a fun day of shopping. I've never seen that show on TV about the weddings (although my future daughter-in-law watches it often).

Thanks for the photos of the new World Trade Center.

I am at such a disadvantage not being able to see these pictures at work, but now I can clearly see body appendages on two Judys and the face of a third.

You know - when I cut and pasted that picture before I had no idea the cars were actually stocked. Reminds of something one might see in a Seinfeld episode.

Cute dress.

I feel like I'm in a CSI episode with these updates! I don't think I've ever spent as much time trying to figure out shadows and reflections.

We have a few buildings here in Atlanta with trees at or near the top. I guess it's nice to have some shade with your million-dollar patio, right?

And I am officially not guessing the Judys this time...but only because I gave myself a headache with the picture CSI.

I think these quotes are the Judy-guessers, so I'll reply to them first...

So 1.
Great speed, and quite often the "obvious" Judy's are the only ones, but not this time. As Yoda said with his last words: "there is another....sky...wa...ker" (where fainting is dropping dead)

Oh, so close. The correct count, but the wrong picture. We've never counted shadows -- where would it end??? (where fainting is um, fainting)

Ah, good guess. But I know that by this time you have completed your freckle analysis of that arm, comparing it to the last picture in the chapter, and determined that it belongs to Lauren. So, I don't have to tell you that it's wrong; you already know that.

Yes! Just to the right of Lauren, in the window, you can see a reflection of Judy taking the picture.

Updated scores at the bottom of this post.

I've seen a few episodes...what am I supposed to do when the girls are hogging the TV? It's amazing the drama they can cook up on that show -- friends who want to take the place of the salesperson, or mothers who have very different tastes than the bride, etc. etc.

Judy and Lauren discovered how easy it is to get up there for a day...you should make a day-trip out of it.

We have the evening of this day to cover and the trip home, but the pictures kind of peter'd-out so we'll cover it in one chapter. Then you're back to my writing!

The subway's in the basement of the city, how could it not be creepy?

Oh yes, I bet Alisha does! It doesn't cover the weddings too much, just the drama of picking out a dress. Turns out, there's a lot of drama in that, quite often.

I think it is a flat bottom under the car so hopefully they would have thought of that.

Nothing better than a captive audience.

Ack! I'm too late! Oh the travesty, the pure tragedy of it. But I see that Pat took the point this round which somewhat appeases me since it's not Marv.

Love this update Lauren!! Excellent job once again. Love the dress too by the way, very cute.

Wow, thanks for sharing the WTC memorial pictures. That's a day I'll never forget, it was so frightening!

Unparalleled parking!!

Looks like the Jamba Juice was a hit with Judy.

Ah, Kleinfelds! I love Say Yes to the Dress! It's so fun. Some of those bridezillas are a hoot though. And of course you have the proverbial MOH who doesn't like ANYTHING the poor bride tries on and thinks that she's the ONLY one being helpful.

Hmm, 44 pages. I thought to myself, "Well, once again, I have come across one of glennbo's TRs far to late to join in." And then I realized that you haven't even started yet!

I am loving Lauren's TR though!

Ah, good guess. But I know that by this time you have completed your freckle analysis of that arm, comparing it to the last picture in the chapter, and determined that it belongs to Lauren. So, I don't have to tell you that it's wrong; you already know that.



Yes! Just to the right of Lauren, in the window, you can see a reflection of Judy taking the picture.
Wow is the Rules Committee botching this version of the Where is Judy-do contest? Okay, I buy the shadow thing, and I at first thought the arm was Lauren's, but put too much in the very first picture where she has on long sleeves.

But I just am not buying the "reflection" of Judy in the final picture. I stared at that picture endlessly. If you mean the reflection just to the right of Lauren's arm............well, that is clearly a reflection of Lauren's arm.

And if you mean the "shadow" to the right of Lauren's head, that is very tiny, then I am wondering just how that can any more be justified as a Judy than the shadow you rejected. Since when does someone "clearly" take a picture when their arm is at the TOP of their head? The arm should be pretty much at ear level at the highest to be someone taking a picture.

Plus, if you look closely, a reflection of Judy would also include a reflection of the name of the store on the window, and would be in reverse or mirror image, but if you look closely to the very small print near the supposed Judy reflection, the writing is in the same readable order as that on the window behind Lauren.

Am I missing the supposed reflection altogether because I don't see anything that could be prohibitively taken as a sure-fire Judy................???
