Travel Forums Introductions Hello From Canada

Hi: Just joined up and, of course, something appears to have happened to the site.

I didn't do it. Of course, this is normal for me. See, I have this black cloud that follows me around....In the Sahara once and it rained. I've been banned from that location.Oh, well....

Anyway, my Wife and I love to travel.We actually sold our house to move into a condo so we could travel more.

Once, while travelling in Tunisia, we visited a camel auction.

As I wandered around the site I was called over by one of the camel owners, who looked just like Lawrence of Arabia.

"Is that your Wife, over there?"

"Why yes it is," I replied.

"Is she Asian?"

"Yep. Why..."

"I will give you two camels for her."

"That's very nice but we don't need any camels."

"NO...I will BUY your wife from you for two very healthy camels."

"You will..."


"Hold on..."

I walked over to my Wife and informed her that I could get two camels if I was willing to sell her.

Needless to say she was not amused.I turned down the offer.

Anyway, camels can't cook....

Welcome to TP chayisun!!

Hi Chayisun!

Welcome to TP!!

At least someone saw your wife and wanted to buy her. Beerman never gets that offer as I am invisible to the rest of the world. Airline attendants, people on the road, you name it, don't see me. I am invisible. (Works well for being a Moderator on this site as no one sees you coming to spank them for misbehaving.) But, that's beside the point. No one has offered Beerman 2 (I mean TWO) camels for me. Then again, we've never been to the Sahara. Note to self - go to the Sahara just because.

Again, welcome!!!!

Thank you for the welcome.

As for camels, no they can't cook BUT one CAN cook a camel. They taste really good broiled. A nice glass of white wine....

'Course ya need a real big plate.....

Welcome to Travellerspoint chayisun, eh?! How's my Canadian?

Good opening story. Was going to write something about only ever being offered one camel for my wife but she's sitting nearby and things could get ugly...

Gud dag....Your Canadian is excellent. You should visit Canada, someday, eh.

Anyway, I've been thinking about the camel thing. My Wife's not here right now so I can type this....If, I HAD taken up the offer I would have had two camels. Nobody in my hometown would have even one. Everybody's got a Wife...Well, other than Harry. He's got a Great Dane.

Wonder if camels eat grass? That would be good then I wouldn't have to cut the lawn.

I could also saddle one up and go to town. Be a sensation! Wonder where I could park it when I go shopping?

Wonder if I parked one at a parking meter would I have to pay?

Oh, well. As to the question about how nice the camels were...We weren't introduced but I think the female one smiled at me.....The male one didn't look too friendly. Actually, when they are mad they, apparently, spit..A long distance. Found this out the hard way in Tunisia...See, we were going on a camel ride into the Sahara...

Wait a sec..Thiis is the intro page....I talk too much...I go now..Thank you all for the greetings...

Welcome to Travellerspoint, chayisun!

You know what? You could have sold your wife for the two camels, and then get a new wife to cook the camels! So you get the camels and a new wife! Good, eh?

Gee, I never thought of that....Coulda had a Camel BBQ....That would have been one BIG fire. Probably, with MY luck, burned down the house. All because I got these #$%$## camels!

Forget it. I'll keep my Wife. When we go away she stops me from getting lost...Or buying strange things...
