    betheny i am deeply sorry for your recent tragedy. i was popping into cc over the summer but was not on for long and didnt read a lot if any of the posts. i just found out about it, dont know what happened, just saw a posting where your father was calling you a widow wife. like you needed that and very hurtful and inappropriate especially considering the very short time frame. you dont need tough love, you have been there. i am deeply sorry, with the graves and everything else in your life, this i am sure floored you as it would any of us.
    peace and keep writing, i wish i could write , but i seem to have lost that focus , i have to learn to talk on the phone more as i know few locals that have a clue.

  25. I think I'll ask Steven if I can write one and they'd make it a Sticky. Need to do it before summer travel season gets here. And I need cspanos to write up that awesome island he stayed on, where he was sitting on a deck and looking at the Great Barrier Reef.

    Flying to Australia...There's a Great Barrier, if you ask me. I keep telling myself "If Dogger could do it, you can too." And Dogger made that flight solo. But he was a great deal tougher than me. That Barrier Reef is taunting me. "Here I am, but you've never seen me, nah nah nah nah nah. And you call yourself a scuba diver..."

    I wish Dogger was here to egg me on. Damn I miss him!

    Good idea re. the trip report and especially the template for the hard of writing.

    Pictures of obvious bear traps like your corrugated slope and sand pit would be a great help as well, I spend ages squinting at pics. in brochures trying to judge gradients and the like, invariably it's worse/better than I thought, the photographer has to be a wheeler to get a meaningful shot.

    I can't believe you were surprised when a hot guy hit on you, look at your avatar and "study more" (I do miss him sometimes)!

    Bummer re. the diving but the island sounds heavenly and I can't wait to see the pics.
  28. PS Timaru-A hot guy macked on me in the Atlanta airport. Said "You are a DOLL. Do you ever go to DC? Would you call me?" I said I would, if not for that pesky husband. He was a gentleman so apologized profusely. OMG, I needed that! And I think I need to wear more halter tops, senorita skirts and suntans-Age be damned!
  29. Didn't get to dive, as Jill was poorly and it was windy as hell. It was Mardi Gras Week on this little Caribbean island, just a village really, 8 miles off the coast of Cancun. Island name = Isla Mujeres. It is 1/2 mile wide, and 4 miles long, and the residents look like Mayan Indians. (Because they are!) Little English spoken, got to practice my Spanish. Lots of community parades, and bright colors (the theme was Cubano!) The MOST relaxing vacay ever. Photos coming soon!

    dear betheny,
    very sorry for your troubles. If you were meaning adi, I think he has made effort to change in the last couple of weeks. I notice he isnt trying to disrupt threads, and his comments have changed in nature. this thing with jhope will probaly affect him more than you might think.
    ms Betheny, you have been like a shiney little flower in the muddy of field of life. your posts have made a real difference in my frame of mind. Im sure Im not the only one who feels that way. please dont change a thing about the way you post. you have a wonderful personality, and wisdom. please know that you have been a huge supporting stone in the c.c. city of hope. right up there with Dr young and the sci nurses. hang in there. and dont worry so much about buttheads.
  34. I'll have to tell you about my brother's funeral. I know it was funny, because of one of our dearest friends leaned up against the wall of the church, slapping his knee, tears of mirth streaming down his face. Due to circumstances it was hard for me to laugh, but it IS a great story.

    If they make a scene, you'll survive anyway. It was a proud day for me, on my wedding day. Mom yelled across the yard at Dad "Frank, it's good to see you're still an ASSHOLE!" (She had a stroke, has no filters.)

  44. PJ Case aka Dingo wasn't invited, to my great distress. But yes, I've been to Minneapolis and got home last night. Whew, that was a lonnngggg drive! Well worth it; we got a lot of organization type work done and I feel great about the progress made. I am exhausted, though! I just got back from taking my lil pajama case to the park. He's working on forgiving me for my desertion. Steve says Dingo CLUNG to him while I was gone, actually slept ON his legs. That made me laugh. When Dingo wants to make sure I can't leave without him, he sits on my wheelchair. Equally effective!

    -Gary Bussey is there and thinks he's part of the "staff" to help people. He thinks he's clean and suber, but he's been smoking pot so go figure. Bussey has what appear to be behavioral probs from his head injury. It's that or psych probs or both.
    -Tawny Kittaen.
    -Sean Stewart, Rod's son.
    --Rodney King.
    Some model who's been doing drugs with her Mom. --A season 1 American Idol 3rd runner up who got into substances after AI and hit it hard when her Mom died after they partied together about a year ago.
    -The guy who was kicked out of Guns n Roses for drugs. (Yeah, let THAT one sink in a bit.)

    Bussey's the crazy as hell wild card so far. Dude is annoying and hasn't a clue.
    I love Dr. Drew and especially Shelley. You have to love Shelley. Maybe you can catch it before next week because they usually air it again before the new episode each week.
