If we are matching stained shoulders, looks good to me!

One confessional room with beautiful hangings, one with neckties??  :funny:

I want to find these places though:












Can anybody read what is on the place marcy is running by? And is that some sort of theater? Masks? And the park where Lance is terrorizing the kids??

And what is with the LAWYERS logo? The CBS bio lists Keri as a finance manager?? ???

I found of all things, a Christmas Giraffe and here. Maybe we could tie it in with the detour some how?

Quote
Ah, the spirit of the holidays. Frosty the snowman, the Christmas tree, and a baby giraffe. I suspect this long tradition of the Christmas giraffe is what prompted Toys-R-Us to use that as their mascot, Geoffry. This is just a little part of the large Christmas diorama in the athletic park directly behind Reunification Palace.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christmas_in_July
Quote
In Western culture, Christmas occurs in December. Christmas is generally about gift-giving and holiday cheer. Christmas in July celebrations may be held in July to provide a second joyful celebration in the year.

In the southern hemisphere, Christmas in July is the name given to social events with a winter Christmas theme, as July is generally the coldest month of the year.

There's "Christmas in July" but it's not popular in VietNam.

I see now.
Those are not Xmas trees. They look like xmas trees.
They're modern contemporary landscaping decorative trees to beautify the surroundings.  :colors

I think I know.   :jumpy:



The Detour is either to escort a bride to a wedding.
Similar to the Russian wedding that we saw a few seasons back.




or to deliver some animal statues to a party???  :duno:

I don't know...in the video Lance is looking for the clue when he flips the curtain , says where is the clue...I see no bride?

But I am loving the park as a possible site.

Flight Time and Big Easy got there first and grabbed the smaller statue.


Zev and Justin got a big one.  :groan:

or maybe they have to deliver both. That's two times.
