    Hi Prickles:
    I started a Post for you to check in with us after
    you get settled in an rested! It's so-o-o-o tiring
    having to travel with Parents no matter how much we
    love them. All's ya hear the whole trip are the same
    old irratating things:
    "How much longer?

    "When are we going to be there?

    "He hit me!!

    "I'm thirsty!!

    It's just wearing on a person!

    Hope we "Talk" soon. We miss ya already!
    MRDAD

    You are always so funny, MD.

    You left out the ever-popular, "He took my comic book!"

    We used to play games when I was little kid. You got points for spotting a white horse or a blue roof.

    And my mother was always saying, "Enjoy the scenery." I thought she was crazy. It was the same cornfields and cow pastures we had seen a thousand times.

    Hope Prickles made her trip w/o any Sturm und Drang.

    Ya know Rocky, I've have this idea floating (literally) in
    my head for a number of weeks now. Been thinking that
    bein' you and I are so darn funny, that we could collab-
    orate as a twosum with a Comedy Team!

    Will get one of those Vans with an hydroulic lift gate
    for your scooter, a handicapped license plate so that
    we can park anywhere we what, even fire hydrants! The
    fool fire trucks can't fit into those small spaces any-
    how. Then we would just travel the "known world" as one
    half a "Standup Comedy Team". See--yud be sittin' down!

    The only possible problem I can foresee is if you insist-
    ed on being the "STRAIGHT MAN"!!!

    Will "talk" about it, "K"?

    We are certainly funnier than most of the people I saw at the Comedy Store on the Sunset Strip.

    And you needn't worry about me wanting to do something straight.

    Maybe we could work up an act like Lucy and Orson Wells. A little Shakespeare, then some magic. Know someone who can lend us a broom?

    Nice day. Yeah, you betcha.


    On the subject of travel, most experts will tell you that when all the details are laid aside, there are really only two ways:

    first class or w/ children.

    We won't panic about Prickles yet, me thinks! Most like-
    ly getting settled into the "new digs".

    Carla?? That is a most beautiful pic on your Bio pg.
    is it Holland? Looks very much like the California
    coast just North of San Francisco. Does't look like
    what I would think of as the "Lowlands"? No need for
    Dikes in those mountains I would think! Your mastery
    of the "American" language makes me wonder if maybe
    you are NOT Dutch but "one of us". Oh, no-huh?

    Morning: Don't know where you get the energy to tend
    all those animals on the Prop. there? I live on a 4
    lane BlVD. here in San Francisco and as a result have
    only a very limited number of "range animals". I look
    out my window to occasionally see a Cougar or Mustang,
    Impala and sometimes even a Barracutta! It's a strange
    place. Hope you are doing well with all the responsi-
    bilities (Kids) and all!

    You Ladies take care, "K"?

    Being that you live in Hague, maybe we could catch this
    frightful character and put him before the Internatl'
    Court. That must be awful to have to be afraid to go to
    sleep in your own Apt. at night! Do you have any idea
    who this person might be? Or why (he) would do that?

    My former wife got her MBA here in California at 50 years
    old! She's a doer and apparently you are too! Good for
    you and please accept my support and admiration, espec.
    doing it with your illness!

    Americans don't normally have anything but a peaceful
    image of the Dutch. He shouldn't be able to run very
    fast or far in those clumsy wooden shoes! I think we
    can get an exert a confession out of him (altering the
    Geneva Convention standards abit) before trying him
    before the "HAGUE"!

    Hope you will have a good day!
    MRDAD
    P.S. I bet we hear from Prickles today!

    Must be early Eve back there and I'm just having my
    Mornin' coffee here in Calif!! That harashment is just
    freightening. Do they have such a thing as "Restraining
    Orders" in the Netherlands? There has been much legisl-
    ation here regarding problems with "stalking" and harass-
    ment such as you are experiencing. A Res. Order here
    legally describes the distance a party has keep from
    your premises or person. They can be jailed for a Vio-
    lation! I know it isn't always "fool proof" but it does
    put the person on legal notice.

    'Posta be beautiful here today! Over 70 degrees (Amer.)??
    Gonna' try to catch up with my Friend Fredericka and head
    for the Beach! Last time we went, she had her Bikini in 1
    of those tiny "zip-lock" sandwich bags! Think "Victoria's
    Secret" still gives her a discount for her past service
    as one of there models! Twenty-Six and she still looks
    great!!

    "Talk" later Carla-gotta find those Speedos!!

    In fact my hubby had a red Cougar once and my son had a sharp yellow convertibe Mustang.

    I am still looking for Prickles....but enjoying this strange but funny thread.

    Mr. Dad and Rockgor as a comedy team! Let us know when and where you appear..........LOL

    Hugs.......Susan

    Hope you had a good trip to Bamberg! We knew that you
    would "check in" as you could. Sounds like you are set-
    tling in and getting comfortable.

    When my Brother was stationed in Bamberg, he came home
    with a shoe box full of Pics of the local scenery. There
    were blondes, redheads, brunettes---well you get the
    "picture'!! Anyhow, he had a good experience and know
    you will have the same.

    Just been busy with Fredericka!! She said she was just
    "nuts" about me!! (or was it that I'm just nuts)? Huh??
    I'd better get a clarification on that!

    Glad you are "HOME",
    "Talk" later, "K"?

    I've had a few Classic cars over the years that of
    course became VERY valuable AFTER I didn't own them
    anymore! My first car at 20 y.o was a '57 Chevy Bel Aire
    2 dr. Hardtop, 283 Eng. w/ 4 Barrel Carberator! $1295.00
    Would pass anything but a gas station!

    1965 El Camino and a '62 Chevy Impala 2dr Hdtop 327 Eng
    w /a 4 Barrel Carb. If I still owned them, I'd be
    in a position to retire in the custom to which I should
    have been accustom to!

    Oh, well!

    Guten Tag!

    Good to hear your cheery voice again. Hope you have a wonderful visit mit lots of Gemutlichkeit.

    According to James Burke, if it weren't for the Germans' great love of beer, air conditioning wouldn't have been invented. (Or at least would have come along later.)

    Auf wiedersehen.

    So glad you made it safely and could get here at last!

    I thought Mr. Dad was going to have apoplexy!

    He and Rockgor are conspiring to become a famous comedy team. I think they'd be great. (BTW, I have a cool broom I could lend you guys - just as soon as Halloween is over!)I heard they're going to be on Comedy Central very soon. Maybe they can get Gallagher to join them!

    Oh, and you two guys forgot the biggest whine of any trip, "I have to go to the bathroom!" Why didn't you go at the last stop (5 mins. ago) - "I didn't have to then!"

    I sure hope you have a grand time over there, Prickles.

    Carla, I am very sorry for what you're enduring. That is horrible. I sincerely hope that you will stay safe. That must be excruciating to go through, your nerves must be shot.

    I've been under the weather a few days, so need to catch up on posts! There are always so many here.

    Everyone on this board is so nice!!!

    I'm glad you are back on the Board. Started to be con-

    cerned that possibly you were unhappy with me for some

    reason. Haven't seen or heard from you since Sunday

    Morning breakfast at DENNY'S!! Thought maybe you were

    upset. I brought that (2-4-1) coupon! It couldn't have

    cost you that much? There were more of those FAUX sau-

    sage on that plate than anyone would dare eat!

    I'll be looking for an I-Hop coupon for this Sunday!

    XOXOXOXOXOIOIOU

    I'm crushed. I thought YOU were buying! :.. - (

    Denny's and IHop? Oh, my goodness. I believe I'm too overdressed to go in either of those locations. : - )
    (If you only knew!)

    Been under the weather lately. Aren't we all under the weather? Where did that expression come from, anyway?

    The only time I wasn't under the weather was when I was flying. Did you know I can fly, too, amongst all my other many and varied talents?

    Good to hear from you, too, but you've gotta come up with something a little more classy than Denny's!!! Really, now.

    Tell ya what. If you wear something nice (instead of those hip waders) and take me someplace fancy, I'll split the tab with you. How's that? : - )

    If all else fails, we can just go fishing!!

    Have a good day

    (See what sleep deprivation does to a person, LOL!)

    It's getting closer to the weekend and the possibility
    of more culinary surprises!! I was an Assist. Manager
    at a PERKO'S in the early eighties. On a slow afternoon
    I use to love greeting people at the front counter as
    they walked in the door, menues in hand and ask, "did
    you have a reservation", as I looked around at at sea
    of empty boothes! Then I would pause for a moment, look
    around again and say, "oh, I think we have sitting over
    there", as I guided them all the way to the back of the
    Restaurant!! (Wonder what ever happen to that job??)
    After the first two weeks one has to tendency to ele-
    vate one's self from Ass't. to Resistant Manager!

    Gonna make some more coffee but will get together with
    ya to disgust thos weekend plans! Daughter had Orient-
    ation at School yesterday and she is happy and excited!
    Wants me to come up and see her new Apt and visit for
    awhile. You better hide any other BF's before I arrive!
    Oh no, Huh??

    OXOXOXOXOXOXIOIOIOUOX

    How are things at the OLYMPIC VILLAGE? The Irish, Ports,
    Germans, French, Spanish and British makes for an inter-
    esting omelette! Hope your getting settled in but it does
    sound a bit calibrated! You know well enough to "bow out"
    if it gets to overwhelming with the stimuli. Rest up as
    you can.

    Thinking of ya!!
    MRDAD (Well yes Steven, I'll ask her about
    the outfit next time, OK!?)
    Geez!! Sorry Prickles.

    Will you be posting a picture of all this pinkness?

    Saw a picture on one of those humor sites of some kid who painted his teeth pink w/ a highlighter pen.

    Aside from the ghastly picture, what chemicals did he ingest?
