Hey Guys,. So sorry about the way this windfall panned out, poor Beth :(

But OTOH.. DAMN! I am Psyched!

Thanks so much to all for letting me come along on this one. You know I wanted in from the get go, but with the home purchase simply did not think it would be possible.

I haven't grabbed the tickets yet,. can someone profer flight numbers for the DC to Africa flight so I can do all I can to get on the same plane in DC?

As soon as I have that number I will make the call..

Patrick,. I'm going to see if I can get to DC from Providence Directly, the airport is literally 5 minutes from my front door,..
If that does not pan out I may look into the hartford alternative and meeting up with you..

If neither of those options work out, I'm flying out of Boston and would be happy to meet up with you there! :)

Oh Beth,..
I've been there... (not the missing Africa part, but the missing vacation part) . complete with both types of collars! They are our family!


So, for me it's only been a little over a week that this has been stuck in my head,. how on earth have you all managed to live with THIS going through your head 24-7 for a YEAR???

I hear the drums echoing tonight
But she hears only whispers of some quiet conversation
Shes coming in 12:30 flight
The moonlit wings reflect the stars that guide me towards salvation
I stopped an old man along the way
Hoping to find some long forgotten words or ancient melodies
He turned to me as if to say, hurry boy, its waiting there for you

Its gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
Theres nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
I bless the rains down in Africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had

The wild dogs cry out in the night
As they grow restless longing for some solitary company
I know that I must do whats right
Sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti
I seek to cure whats deep inside, frightened of this thing that Ive become


Hurry boy, shes waiting there for you

Its gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
Theres nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
I bless the rains down in Africa, I bless the rains down in Africa
I bless the rains down in Africa, I bless the rains down in Africa
I bless the rains down in Africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had........

So... here I sit. :rolleyes: I was supposed to be on vacation all this week and next, but now I'm using the days as needed for wound protection. :)

But he seems to be recovering right on schedule and the second surgery (the *@#! trip cancelling surgery :evil: ) is temporarily scheduled for the 23rd.

Awwww.... poor Magilla! Looks like he's probably got a cold tushie on top of his wound! You're a good Mommy! :D

Wow! Sorry to hear about Beth not getting to go. Happy for CDS though. I was really hoping to see you guys somewhere along the way But. I'll be arriving 2 weeks after you head home. We've pretty much settled on a walking/camping Safari through the North and South Luangwa River Valley area in Zambia. It's said to be some of Africas least visited and most abundant wildlife areas. You actually walk through the wildlife with a guide and a ranger who is armed just in case of an attack. Sounds fun!! It should give my shoes, backpack and Rocket blower a real workout.:D

Here's a link. http://www.luangwa.net …lking_safaris/d​efault.htm (external link)
