    I have returned

    In case you have noticed, I have been absent from the forum for a while. I returned Easter Sunday from a short trip(ha). After leaving home on Mar 5, we (my wife and I) flew to Barcelona, Spain for a day or to. We then went a cruising. First was Italy (Civitavecchia). It was raining real bad, and since we were there a few years, stayed on the Ship. Next, Messina, Sicily. Our next stop was Izmir, Turkey. Again been there, done that). Next stop Alexandria Egypt for 2 days with a day into Cairo and the Pyramids and stuff. It was exciting and different. I've been to a lot of places, but none quite like this; I mead, FILTH!. Dead horses floating in the water source, etc. I"d go back in a minute, lots of things to see and do. Warning: Don't take a picture of a camel and its owner. They want $$$. Well after Egypt, it was Malta and then back of Barcelona. Next was Morocco (Casablanca and Agadir). Wonderful place. Very clean and westernized. Then to the Canaries (Islands), Madeira (Island). Back thru the straits and a day in Malaga. Then to Barcelona for a day and then home via a small town outside of Austin for a visit with the grandkids and stuff. Hope I recover soon, between jet lag and the pollen, right now life is a bit<ch. Well Ciao, got to get backto work.

    Was anyone beating it?

    You can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink even if you kill him and push him into it....

    Sounds like you had quite an adventure! Welcome back!

    'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
    delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
    promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
    holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
    possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

    Welcome back, you were missed but dead horses aside , I'm glad you enjoyed yourself.
    SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM

    "It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
    -Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"

    Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

    Did you pay the camel jockey or tell him to pound sand?

    Meanwhile, fishing in Russia:

    I just walked away as he ranted. It really was funny. There are soldiers all over w/AK47s but will not interfere with the vendors, etc. They will only go far and will not approach the bus's. Just walk away from them .
