Rescuedad,

I'm sure I need several enhancement surgeries, but I would much rather spend my money on cruising.

Once you get on your first cruise, you'll know exactly what I am talking about.

Gotta go. I need to go to may favorite store, WALMART!!

Libragirl from Texas (your other favorite place)

I went to Wal Mart today, too! Also to Kohl's. It was DH's semi-annual shopping day. He only buys clothes twice a year ! I'm exhausted . He's gone to have a few beers with the guys...

I haven't tried possum, but I did try squirrel once (ick, ick, ick!).

rescuedad,

I thought you were an EMT Where did I get that

Can't wait to hear about everyone's cruises. I have to wait until November .

Rescuedad.........I figured you'd get yourself in trouble sooner or later.
It didn't take these ladies very long to figure you out.
Hopefully we didn't scare you off......you were quite fun.

Ahem, for the record an EMT goes to school for 16 weeks I am a paramedic/FF that is a 2 year degree on top of that I am an RN in the emergency room. I have seen victims of Murder, suicide, child abuse you would not believe, Rape, child molestation, elderly abuse ( rampant in florida) psycho nut cases (those are usually calls to walmart) drownings, domestic violence should I go on. I see lifes dirty little secrets..you see a fraction of what I see on the news. I have earned a very thick skin and try and find humor in everything, you would not believe the things you can find or have to find humorous in these situations to remain a sane person. You see what happens when someone calls me an EMT! So I am grateful to the thick skinned people who have posted on this thread it has afforded me a release. laugh and the world laughs with you and take nothing personally. Over 800 people have viewed this thread yet only about 7 have responded on this thread I want those 7 people on MY cruise of the century! and anyone else who may care to join us is this thread! these are people who I am guessing know how to enjoy life! It makes me happy to inject humor in to peoples lives each day. God I need a cruise!

Yes, talk to us! I stopped talking about it much at our work, because we have a few girls that actually talk about their family did this - or that - and it does get annoying, so I just hold it all in myself and spill it on the board! We all know the feeling!!!!!!!!!! Have fun!!

rescuedad,
I know alittle of what you see and deal with. Everyone knows that they are wicked, sick people in the world, but if we actually knew how sick some are, it would be terrifing And is
I have a mother, sister-in-law, and a brother that works in a hospital here in Jackson, Ms. And the other half of the family is in law enforcement or a firefighter . I'm the odd ball in the family. I'm in the grocery business.

And thanks everyone for all the laughs, and giggles on all these replys

Happy sailing to all;
David

I'm very sorry that I didn't understand that you were a paramedic/FF and a RN. I now know where your sense of humor comes from. If you didn't laugh, you'd be crying all the time! I know some people in the same general line of work and their sense of humor is the same. We "regular" people will never understand!

I love your posts and can't wait for your review of your cruise,

rescuedad.......once you go on your first cruise and find out how much you absolutely love it, then you'll have to book another cruise for next year. T
here are 10 of us ladies going next year May 6, 2007 on the Valor. :o Now if you want some laughs, you need to join that cruise. Your wife would have a ball too. All of us ride motorcycles and get together once a year for girls week.
Anyway, hope you enjoy your first cruise and let us hear all about it when you return. Don't be a stranger to this site.

aaaaaaahhhhhhh I went to Walmart! Could not find hose darn fishing license holders for my sign and sail cards anywhere so was forced to go there! Talk about people watching! All I needed was a chair and a six pack non stop entertainment there. Ever see the movie "The hills have eyes" I think Walmart is where they found those actors! Came home and burned my clothes! 12 more days to Rescuedads first cruise I can't take it!

Oh, so you do go to Wal Mart!!! I 'll bet they know you by name, huh?

It was my suggestion for you to go there and get one of the fishing thingys.

Next time I will tell you to go and get the stuff to make one.

Better yet, I can tell you where you can stick your stuff to hold on to it.

Ohh Luanne, luanne tsk tsk! you know better than to attack me! Your just reopening that can of worms.... oh wait I forgot your probably still mad about my Heat beating your Mavericks! Did they have a "losers" parade?

Yes I did go to Walmart, it looked like halloween horror night at Disney! There's alot of class.... Lets see let me shop for sporting goods, tires for my car, fertilizer for my lawn, a couple of dvd's ohhh and let me buy all my groceries while I'm at it! wait maybe they have a good concept there. let's let all the lepers, cretins, and all deformed nuclear fallout victims of the world shop in one place this way the NORMAL people of society don't have to see them! did I mention the Heat beat the Mav's? 12 more days!!!!

It is a real pleasure to meet a man with class.

Can I kiss your ring?

Braves??? How ironic! did I ever mention I am a HUGE NY Mets fan!!

So basically if for some odd reason like the planets all line up, they find Jimmy Hoffa or they start selling Polo at walmart we ever went on a date, it would last about 3 minutes O

Do you by chance howl early for some reason?

What day will you be in Cozumel? I like rain. Rain is refreshing. But for some, they panic if they can't find a bar of soap, before it stops raining.

Wednesday morning the 12th I believe. I plan on snorkeling with the kids that day and sunshine makes for better snorkeling than rain.

Who uses soap and rain? I though that was why we have swimming pools in our yard! I heard the boats pool water is ocean water and I was like aww damn how am I gonna stay clean, go to the bathroom and rinse my bathing suit at the same time in ocean water?

We will be in Jamaica that day. Please don't trash Cozumel before we get there. And no you shouldn't add pool water around your Margaretta glass.
