*Hands pauline a Hot Tucker.*

Darling girl...relax...sleep and enjoy the warm air. I bet Aussie feels really hot, now!!

I'll have one of those Hot Tuckers with you!!

Me likie! Posted Image

Still feel like I need a mountain of sleep! Actually the weather has been kind to us. Not too hot, a bit humid though.

I'm feeling really guilty for not being around much. Work has been very busy and family has been sick. My son has pneumonia and my wife is still going thru a lot of tests.
Off to set up another Home Show in a few minutes and working at it today and thru the weekend.

Coffee pink2 and could you beam me a cup every few hours.:thumbsup:


*hands Bill another Strong Coffee*

Oh, mate, hopefully things will turn around for you and your family! I really hope your wife gets better soon and they find the cause.

I will restate being soooo happy for your trip, Pauline, and bummer on that international travel scenario! Good for you, girl, you are now an experienced flyer....courage comes to all a brave enough to face their fears!


Hubby and I had a great vacation getaway, up until the last night, when I suffered food poisoning. Luckily, all the unpleasantness was over by the time we boarded the plane, tho I still had great discomfort. Slept all the way home, even in the car from Houston to house. Hubby was a ROCK.


Today, after 12 hours sleep, I am taking it easy....so far only plain breads, chicken stock, water and ginger ale seem to help. Good thing that is the perfect treatment for food poisoning...plenty of liquids and bland food.


So even though the end was crappy, the rest of our getaway was fun! Did not lose Nor win...broke even with what gambling I did. Watched two shows, The Rat Pack is Back, and Penn & Teller (love their Bull$#it show!) . Did all the touristy things...lots of walking to see Bellagio fountains, Mirage volcano, Treasure Island pirate show...cool seing all the different scenes in the casinos too!
Very glad to sleep in my own bed last night.....ahhhh home!



Glad you're feeling better, Tish! *hugs*

And, thank you for all your encouragement with my fear of flying. I really am over that fear, actually the turbulence became something of fun cos the flight was sooooo long!

ANOTHER sickie!! Poor tish!!

Yay!! It is the weekend!! Who's up for some vine swinging? We could go with this guy....

Posted Image


GEORGE!!! Me! I'm up for that! Posted Image

That is quite a journey Pauline.
It reminds me of a domestic flight from Melbourne > Sydney > Orange. The Sydney flight was delayed and we took off a hour late. We made time up in the air and they held the Orange flight for us. Our names where called over the plane intercom and we where led off the plane and through a side door and out another door to the waiting plane. After about an hours flight in a small 18 seater plane, we arrived in Orange at about 7pm and our luggage came with us!!! We where expecting to come back to the airport the next day to collect our luggage.


Oi! I don't think I'd cope being on an 18 seater plane!

Apart from wanting a mountain of sleep, I've also hurt my back (though that's healing quicker than expected), I've also got an infection, and my rib still hurts! Can win for trying at the moment! Posted Image

We're expecting a friend for coffee soon, I think she's making it her duty to come over to stop us from sleeping during the day. Yuh... don't know how successful she'll be!

Okay...I gotta share my small plane story. Keeping a very, very long story short....I was flying home from a wedding with my infant son (strapped to my chest in a baby bjorn), my brother-in-law (who was very "off" because his anti-psychotics...he took to counteract the side affects from the anti-epileptic meds were NOT working) and the EX. The EX took the single seat in the back of the plane and they sat my BIL and I in the front row. Now, on this little plane, the flight attendant sat strapped in and facing the passengers at the front of the very small compartment. Now, when my BIL's meds were off he would become paranoid and believed that we were all trying to kill him. So...here we are, the flight attendant does the whole, "here are the exits and here's how to put on a life vest." thing and my BIL is twisting in his seat. He keeps 1/2 raising his hand...and finally at the end of the spiel and once we begin take off he raises his hand and asks her "Why are you trying to kill me?"...I punched him in the arm..."Shut UP! Really...ha ha...he's just kidding...Ha...Stop it...Wait until the plane lands...NO ONE is trying to kill you." I somehow...got him piped down until we got into Cincinnati and to the gate for the next, BIG plane...So there I was, screaming at the EX...and chastising my poor BIL...NOT TO SPEAK...I thought for sure we were going to get trapped in Cincinnati because he was saying all this crazy stuff. Picture me with the baby strapped to my chest...screaming at this poor guy with a helmet on in the middle of the airport. It was ummm....INSANE. Somehow, he managed to focus long enough to get through the flight. He could banter on and on about whatever he wanted as long as we made it to JFK...

To give you an idea of what a LONG story that whole wedding was,...that was maybe 1/10th of the completely insane moments that weekend. We missed the plane, my car blew the clutch...had to have it towed and take a taxi to the airport....BIL's meds were all messed up, he was unshaven and needed a haircut cuz HE was giving the bride away...(There were NO barber shops in the area...I had to cut his hair and shave him....never did that before.) JFK Jr.'s plane fell out of the sky that day...the priest decided he wouldn't marry the couple because he found out that she was Jewish...something the groom's mother failed to tell him when she booked the wedding...IN A CHURCH...BIL...cuz his meds were off told SIL that he didn't approve of the fact that her betrothed was not Jewish...and...repeated "I'm going to hell" as he walked her down the aisle...leading her to a severe meltdown.....add all the other familial insanity that goes along with these sorts of events and well...yep...it was a doozy!

Beasty....the best thing to teach someone the value of being in school is to have them work 40-60 hours a week at a lousy job. School is great fun and work sucks!! My niece is the same way. So was I for that matter. I hated going to class when I was young.

We'll take some of that snow here in the Northeast. We are sure to be in for a tremendous drought this summer. I'm very worried about the lack of snow. It is just plain weird.

Trekkin, that is an eventful plane trip and a wedding.

Somebody here like listen songs group "The Black Eyed Peas"?
My very liked song:"I Gotta Feeling".I very like they song's and i upload here fan video based on "X-men:Evolution" with this song:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2JVhjmVVz44&feature=related

I hope what you very like this song.Enjoy!In last time me very liked song in genre Hip Hop.
Maybe this because i begun understand english on ear good than this was in 2010 year.
Now i understand songs in genre hip hop.Yeah in this songs some was slang words,this words i understand but i never don't writing messages with slang words.

Good song.


While I was watching the Best of Both Worlds again and noticed something. When they first encountered the Borg, Data was in the Ops chair. When Shelby talked to Data he was in the Helm's chair and after they escaped from the Borg Data was back in the Ops chair. Maybe everybody knew this but this is the first time I noticed it.

I don't know about that trekkin, All that rain in the fall and quite a few rain storms since has water tables very high. It does look like we'll get a little snow Wednesday night.

I'll have to check that out Elf. Somebody wasn't doing their job in continuity.

Home Show this past weekend was a great success, looks like I'll have plenty of work.:cheers:

We shall see. YOU might get snow...but Southern RI will prolly get sleet.

Beasty, I wasn't able to respond to your PM...I don't know what is going on with the avatar thingie. Sometimes it works for me...but I've had it do funny things before as well. Maybe Tom or Sven are better to ask??

And while you are doing it...get the "old winkie" guy back. (You know, some day...Tom will break down and put that guy back for me...some day...after I'm gone...*cough* Is it cold in here? Oy...my back is hurting...)

I think after going through something like that, Trekkin', I'd be taking a happy pill!


Sis and BIL are going to the beach for 5 days today, so I get a bit a me time (we do have a border, but she mainly keeps to herself). So, once they've left, I'm going to set myself up upstairs and do some writing, which I haven't done for over a week. I feel really bad about that because I haven't updated my History challenge in nearly 6 months, I think (I've been stuck on this chapter for that amount of time, it's been very frustrating!).

Anyways, apart from a slight headache (which is the side affects of a drug I'm taking), and my rib still giving me grief, I'm almost back to feeling human.

Anyhoo, I'll have a Hot Tucker, please!

Catch ya all soon!
