Mr. Isa here....
Sorry to poop on anyone's parade, but isn't this thread on "travel-related movies"? I know of several movies that deal with laughing and piddling (Leather Clad She-Queens of the Amazon), and several snow movies (Lost Horizon, Fargo). Has anyone seen the She-Queens movie?
Mrs. Isa is right. Out in the country, far beyond the valley of reason, just left of the River of Sensibility, lies our humble abode. Mid March snowstorms can get viscious. Why I remember tales of yore, told in deep, dank basements by crusty old farmhands. Hands often gathered in deep, dank basements. Sometimes, they brought their gloves down with them. They would pass the idle hours with fantastical tales of "The Giant Snowflakes of '31", or "The Mad Death of Everything". Most townsfolk thought the tales to be just rural legends, like "The Cow That Came In From The Cold and Murdered the Whole Family with Udder Visciousness", but rural folk knew the truth.......there was something in this..."dairy-air" that smelled like....like something rotten in Denmark.
My Grandfather lived through the "Giant Flakes of '31", so I know that this one is true. I inherited his massive collection of flat birds, those unlucky enough to get in the way of the VW-sized behemoths of the sky. And come Spring, for as far as the eye can see, huge depressions appear across the landscape. Depressions created not, as some would have you believe, by receding glaciers, or even by the general lack of pharmaceutical mood-elevators, but by the Giant Flakes.......some even fill with the snowmelt and become small to medium sized ponds. They say the ghosts of all the flat birds lurk in the depths waiting for fresh meat. Every year, several high school students just "disappear" after having decided on "just a quick skinny dip, tee hee tee hee". And the newspapers blame binge drinking.
So I'd like to invite all TPers out to the country this Spring, for an old fashioned "hand-wringing festival". Bring your bathing suits....

Sweet Dreams......WOoooooooooooo.....aaaahhhhhhhh....wwwwoooooo

NEWSPAPER RESCUE ON THE WAY!!!

ps: It finally stopped snowing - thank you!

Those severe thunderstorms they said would be here by 2 pm, just got here! Right on time to delay Mr. Anne's flight to LA. He will miss his connection fly in Dallas. He just called me from the plane asking me what he should do or what other airport should he fly into (can you tell I solve all his problems???). I said, get off in Dallas and drive, drive like the wind...no, just kidding.
She is just going to have to see what they have when he gets to Dallas. He may be spending the night at the aiport...to me it would be an adventure, for him is pure hell!!

I ALWAYS take the bump..love those free plane tickets:) and spending the night in the Airport isn't so bad...like you said..it is an adventure!

I would take those two, actually I have. But the problem is that the delay began why he was already in the plane. He said they sat on the runway for about an hour and a half. That sucks and he is soooo stressed out hahaha. I said, relax, kick back and enjoy the ride. Take a nap in the airport, it will be better tomorrow...he said, "Right Anne, I gotta go..." (he is annoyed with me now hahaha)

Mr. Isa here...

Anne, if he calls again, tell him to catch a flight up here. Then he can check out our depressions..........
