and supposedly it's on it's way here.  between the pizza from the baker and all the sweaty socks, I may have to send it out for fumigation!  I only hope nobody confiscated that educational DVD I picked up on Ste. Catherine...

My suitcase got here 45 minutes ago.  Everything was there, even the DVD (!) The pizza smelled good but a close inspection revealed the beginnings of mold...

But the most amazing thing was, every piece of clothing smelled like the hotel room! Clean, fresh, a bit of citrus...it brought back so many things.  Of course, most of it is in the washer now, but some things, like my jacket, can't be washed.  I wonder how long before the scent fades...whatever the case, it will be long before the memories fade, and I suspect that will be never.

Love to you all,

you got CITRUS? Hell, my stuff all smelled like ancient smoke :)

I am glad your stuff arrived, safe and sound.

Hey Creighton,

You smelled just fine to me!  ;)

I had better clarify this to add "when we hugged."  ;D ;)

Glad the educational video was intact. Don't forget to share with your AMG brothers!  ::)

As for the strippers, well, I wanted to pack one myself (the redhead), but customs told me "NO PETS."

I got caught with a small tube of toothpaste in customs. I also tried to sneak my tiny lighter in my cig pack and the bells and alarms went off. Oh well still had a great time.

Creighton, how is that right shoulder doing?   Still a little sore?   It's going to look GREAT when it is all healed up.

You are such a sweetie.  If I was just 10 years younger......ok, 15.....hell, 20 and that's my FINAL offer !

Right shoulder is still a little sore, definitely tender!  I'll share pics, maybe in an avatar, when it's a little less...textured, shall we say?

And what's this rubbish about being younger?!!  I'm shy; all you have to do is make the first move...but then that statement will certainly give me a reputation!
