Woo Hoo
Postcard of Chicago arrived today and very welcome. It's gonna get pinned beside the calendar on my office partition.
Glad you enjoy Muse. Best live band around, and as for the green pants for Beerman, spraypaint his legs and let the summer insects do the rest
The pleasure is all mine as uz ozzies have the hard task of edumacating Americains in the finer points of life
I would have been in C for the the TP alkie blinder but I must keep working so my wife can enjoy her 4 month RTW trips.

1) You are welcome! ;)
2) Green spray paint... Hmmmm... Think there's a can or two down in the workshop...
3) Edumacating Americans, eh?? Any luck with that and the new in-laws?
4) Add Chicago onto one of the joint trip itineraries - she'll never notice!
5) I want a job with 4 months vacation... (Preferably paid.)

Marlis - any sign of that sea gull yet?????
Damn! You just can't trust those birds. Should have used Albatross Express!!!

As youze guys are.

Post the pic in the over 35's section so you don't scare the children
3) Edumacating Americans, eh?? Any luck with that and the new in-laws?
Now that's a problem to parrotface King Leotard in 300. Me and she-who-must-be-obeyed met Rawb and my wife's sister Anne at Athens airport back on 1997? Rawb is a very nice guy born and bred in South Carolina and a real gentleman. Getting into town in the cab and Rawb pipes up 'Will we pass the Colosseum on the way to the hotel' My wife placed a firm hand on my nether regions to still my response while Anne explained that the Colosseum was actually in Rome.

On the case!!!

So do I

Will do - now it's picking the right color - moss or grass green as those are my only choices...

We know Rawb!!! Met him in the hotel bar in Green Bay, Wisconsin while waiting for Lagered's wedding reception to start. Nice guy. Owns 2 trailer parks - one with double-wides and everything!! (Thankfully, they were in town attending a different wedding.)

Maybe we'll just bombard her with postcards as a subtle hint... It could work...

MARLIS - I have found your post card!!!!!!!!!! It was returned to us. I have sent a PM to you to verify the address as it looks as though they thought what I wrote was invalid. I'm not sure. It's in Dutch. I don't speak Dutch. They checked a box that appears to read "Onvailedig adres" but that's just a guess. It's very pale and even with the magnifying glass (and my glasses), hard to read.

Isa now leaves to interrogate the lake gull to find out what went wrong...

I wrote the "receiver" addresses on all the envelopes while you coordinated the contents. But this was one where you wrote the return address - wasn't too "scrawly" because it found it's way back.

Alright l admit lm sad and l should actually be getting ready to go out BUT - its now 2008 - and l dont want this little wager to be forgotten about!!!!!! Although - Jase007 - vaguely sounds familiar, nope maybe not......
