Cigareets and whiskey and wild-wild wimmin,
They'll drive ya crazy, they'll drive ya insayne..

Cigareets are missin' and so are the wimmin,
But we're all 'delighted' the smoke's on the wayne.

Cat,

Your poetry brings a tear to my eye.

Hang in there. Maybe dinner out and a movie would help.

Ah Cat, it's been too quiet here lately. Thanks for breaking the silence.

How is everyone doing? It's still between 70 and 80 degrees here in south Florida. What could be better?

Hugs to everyone.

Where are all the wild men to go with those wimmin?

Thanks Cat. Hugs to all.

Hope everyone had a nice holiday season. I am so ready for a bit of ordinary day to day living.

Are you inviting Cat to dinner? What would Mrs. CrankyPants say?

Ed,

We'd better keep this just between us and the people on the internet.

Yesterday we had freezing drizzle here in St. Louis, today it's 65 heading for 70. Dang weather woke me from my hibernation. Belated congratulations on all the accomplishments I missed like Ed, Lumpy, Joan, et al. It's probably because it's been so long that I've forgotten that I was a smoker and that I quit! (Or it may be advancing age)

You know you have become a non-smoker when you forget you ever did - age has nothing to do with it.

Hi Elliot. Where have you been? Haven't heard from you in a while.

Stick around. Big doings coming on Monday. It's your 12th anniversary.

Start thinking of some great place in the world to throw a super party!

Hugs.

Verna

It's your 12th anniversary.

Actually it will be the 13th. There are three things that I will never forget because they are crucial to my staying alive: Debbie's Birthday, Our Anniversary, and when I quit smoking in that order! Other than my memory Debbie and I are doing just fine. I am feeling broke but for good reason. Now that I am no longer paying five thirds of my income paying for cigarettes, for Christmas I paid off Debbie's auto loan and 2 weeks ago I paid off our mortgage. Now I no longer have to worry whether I forgot to make the payments! In the meantime I have too much time on my hands for TV and watching the world go to hell in a handbag. I think I'm ready to get away from it all. How about the Cook Islands: https://www.google.com/search?q=cook+islands&hl=en&c...

Cook Islands, here I come. I'll have the QS rubber dinghy out full of hot air in no time. I should be there by Monday...

You know, I actually remember some of those commercials - drats! Maybe I'll find some of Lucy's version.

Jack,

Fire up the Yugo I'll pack the pontoons we need to get to the Cook islands. At least that's what I think he said, maybe he was going to cook some I-talian for us... Who cares? We get to celebrate with Elliot and the TMFQS gang.

Ed

BTW, congrats Elliot

Ed, I was thinking along the same lines that maybe Elliott thought the islands were named for an activity rather than a person. If you can't locate the pontoons I have many empty 55gal. oil drums that should work. The cyber Yugo with the full body flame paint job and the swarm-of-bees muffler is a self made diesel that can tolerate some gasoline. Quite advanced for its time.

Elliott -ready to Cook? All the smoke will be from the BBQ once the car is put out and Ed regains consciousness.
Good job on the not smoking, by the way. Keep doing that.

Jack G

If you don't want to wait for hours cooking an Italian, I understand they're pretty good smoked.

See you in the Islands, El and CANGRATURONIES!!!!!

Congrats Elliot
I'm trying to find where this will be located but anything called "Cooky", I'll be certain I can find someplace like this. Are there a lot of chefs there????

See you soon,

It is so beautiful here on the beach! The sun is just starting to set, the water is a beautiful shade of blue, and a band is starting to play sweet Polynesian songs. I say we start a bonfire here on the beach and gather around it for the awards ceremony.

Elliot, please step over here by the fire (not too close). Allow me to present you with this beautiful gold loving cup, covered in diamonds, with the number thirteen spelled out in rubies and emeralds.

Those jewels sparkle like your teeth. I know that sounds strange, but you have the whitest teeth I have ever seen! They really do sparkle!

C*O*N*G*R*A*T*U*L*A*T*I*O*N*S Elliot. Thank you for sticking around. A lot of people have dropped off the board, but you have always been here, posting regularly, joking around, trading barbs with Jack and Ed. Thanks for the loyalty and the humor.

Hugs.

Verna

I just want to thank you all. It's easy now but it was the help of everyone here when it was hard that made it easy! The little heart attack last March was a wake-up call but instead of a wakie-wakie now, it might have been nightie-nightie years ago if I hadn't quit smoking! Before I decided on the Cook Islands, I had thought about going to Colorado and celebrating with a Pot Party. Then I realized that I don't smoke anymore and Doc's got me on a low-fat, low cholesterol diet ruling out the brownies, so here we are on a great beach! We'll enjoy a kaikai of umukai cooked in an umu.

I know now why this is called the Cooks Island. It's full of beautiful cookies. I guess that there's not too much delivery of girls clothes but I'm not complaining.

Being serious for a moment, my doctor in Sweden told me that there's "No Small Heart Attack". She is a beautiful woman and gave me a good idea of what has happened. I've had quite a few other doctors about my heart but one thing I remember from one of them. Each heart attack kills some cells in your heart. You have to keep your existing cells by following what the docs say. If not, the cells will continue to erode in your heart. This thought alone is enough to keep me from smoking again.

And another congrats for the 13 years away from the weed.

Blackduff

Boy am I late to this party.

Sorry-we were in California visiting our kids and I was computerless ( in Silicon Valley, no less).

Congratulations Elliot on your anniversary and great choice of location for a party.

Silicon Valley is about 70 miles from me. Wish I had known you would be out this way.

I'm near Concord - and Palo Alto is down the road but still within easy driving distance. Provided it's not commute times...
