Things can sure get hot and heavy here. Looks like a thunder-boomer rolled thru while I was AWOL! I guess that's what can happen when you deal with such an emotionally-charged topic and the many issues that surround it. Looks like things have calmed down, so I won't poke the hornet's nest.

Sorry I haven't been around - a lot of people are saying "Who the #$%^ are you?" - but things have been nuts around here - getting my house rented, going to schools prepping for my new assignment, putting out fires, tying up loose ends, and... (drum roll) getting hitched! Katie and I are going to tie the knot (a double-reefed overhand sheet-bend for the smart@$$es asking what kind of knot) in LA on May 6th. The "honeymoon" will consist of a tour of Motel 6s along I-40 as we drive from LA to Charleston, SC so i can report to my new ship. I hear Stacy is taking bets on whether or not we'll be divorced by the time we get to the east coast (12 hours a day for 3 days in a car together!?!?)

Anyway, wishing everyone well and keeping you all in my prayers.

Cheers

Ahoy, Howard!

Thanks. BTW, "shiver me timbers" is an old nautical phrase dating to a time when ships were made of wood and MEN were made of steel. When you hit something really hard - or get hit BY something really hard, it would cause the mast(s) to shake or "shiver". Hence, the phrase "shiver me timbers".

Yep, I'm a plethora of useless nautical trivia!

Cheers and thanks again!

Ha ha! I always thought that while MEN were made of steel but the arms and legs were wooden, and the shiver applied to the limbs.

OK, what da I know?

Now MY interpretation was that the wood referred to the sailor's...oh, wait, that is something entirely different! lol

with a big big smile I say congratulations...as for the hoopla that I think I started...it is kinda like best friends getting pissy at each other...sometimes you just need to rant and vent and know that when it is all over...everyone still has your back...that is what this board is all about..right?
Love you and all the best.

Ahoy, Maureen, Monica, Tara, Babs, Alta, Jamie, Ying, Bev, Bruce, and Betina -

Thanks so much for your good wishes! I wish we could invite everyone to the nuptuals, but we're going to keep it really small (because we're a couple of tight-wads!)

You guys are the best family anyone could ask for.

Cheers

Like Kerry put it....CONGRATULATIONS, BOBKAT!!!!

Since you're doing it so quickly, I guess Lisa Rose, scouty, Kay, Kerry & I can cancel our bridesmaid dresses that we have on order. I was really looking forward to that big-hooped dress, too....DAMMIT! lol

And just for the record, I still have a few squares left on the board for the betting pool if there are any folks wanting a piece of the action!!!

Hugs and warmest wishes to both of you,

Stacy

P.S. YOU TWO BETTER BE IN NASHVILLE!!!!!!!

Instead of Motel 6, try staying with CSN peps across the country.

WHAT A HONEYMOON!

I live inbetween Fort Worth and Dallas and have 3 extra queen beds.

I'll leave the light on.

Congrats,
Jo Ann

Jo Ann,

I think you're onto something! We can all post what type of room/bed/corner of the house we can offer these two for their trip and make it very cost-effective and spontaneous all at the same time! lol

I'll throw in a spare bedroom in Northwest Indiana which is guarded by a 7 pound Lhasa Apso (Riley), a 120 pound Great Pyrenees (Mojo), and three kids who promise to wake you by 7 am daily! Does it get ANY BETTER?!?!? lol
