Man I was fixing my door frame which had the closer pull out of it in a storm earlier this summer. Yup just getting around to it, but it is done. I am covered in sawdust but had to confirm

I'm glad you liked it. Since then, my sister (the one who talked me into going to this concert) has gotten tickets for a show later in the tour so now I'm jealous too.

I did get into the cartop carrier and got her duffel out, but I made her come with me in order to find whatever it was she needed.

I hope the rest of your stay in India goes well. I'm glad you enjoyed Lauren's trip write-up!

There's nothing I can say to defend the drive-thru window mess-up. Wish I could!

I'll try to get you some more reading material. Thanks for checking-in from afar!

I forgot about those, but you are right on. I never understood the pool one -- then, at the pool they can't get their hair wet because they just "did" it.

I remember those days! Or, at least I remember Judy saying those same words! Don't worry, it gets better....you can gradually start putting them in charge of packing a few things and then check their work.

No, I haven't heard of it, but I'll have to see if I can find it on youtube or something. I can't imagine "Marlene" being said with a cockney accent, so I'll have to check it out!

Good catch. I thought you were going to miss it with that first "1 judy!!!" post. You can definitely see a couple of Judy's fingers in the first picture.

Fun fun meet and apparently...kid free
Yeah, you've gotta go light and doggie-bag half your meal so you don't miss out on the cheesecake. It's worth it though!

Yes, sans kids. Mine and MEK's are old enough to be home by themselves, and the Oblivious-Knowitall's were able to get a sitter.

It's definitely high on the list!

Judy always gets her birthday cheesecake from there. I told that to Mark (Capt_Oblivious) over dinner and said that apparently Judy doesn't want to ask me to cook one, er bake one, I mean. He said, "and there's your answer".

No, I didn't make the reference to avoid challenges -- the group picture should be enough to show where everyone was sitting and that she was on my left.

I like San Antonio. 'Course I haven't been there in over 20 years, but I liked it!

Oh how I love Cheesecake Factory. I'm partial to the Red Velvet myself, and I love Judy's idea of an app as an entree. I usually get a burger or pizza and end up with leftovers.

for a DIS meet, and at one of our favorite places to eat

Hi Julie and Mark (I hope I get to meet the better half of this combo one day); Hi Dawn...I'm all set with those postcards on arrival day; and MaryEllen and Denny...hope to meet you both one day.

Glenn, thanks for sharing the DIS meet with us.

That is the best cheesecake ever. I don't care how much food I eat, there's never anything left of it to take home.

Looks like a nice meal. As soon as I saw the word cheesecake in the title, I knew it had to involve Mark and The Cheesecake Factory somehow.

all I can say is a better look good in this picture Glenn! On second thought, I'm not even sure if this IS my picture. Let's hope for my sake it is.

I probably would have seen all these pictures last night if I hadn't been so devistated after losing most of my own TR. I decided to put the computer away for the rest of the evening.

That does seem appropriate. I'm starting to wonder if meeting up with you is disturbing the balance of the Force or something.

Hi Kathy!

Someday, I'm sure our paths will cross and you'll get to meet my better half. And then you can both gang up on me.

By the way, there was only one Judy present at the meal. So I get the point for that evening.
