Count me in - I won't be there - too far to fly, big chicken that I am. But, watch out for the Pope - if he sprinkles any of that holy water on you - you just might go the way of the Wicked Witch Of The West "I'm shrinking - I'm melting" - then no more David B - and that would be so sad!!!

David:
What's the date: I think a Cruisemates Gripes cruise is in the works.

Have a great cruise, mate.

(I think we've decided to do eurodisney next summer. If we feel a 7 and 8 year old are old enough to appreciate Europe then the cruise will probably happen)

Is there really a ship big enough for David and Banker? If you guys should ever end up on the same voyage I would pay money to see the pictures.

Dorothy, I would love to cruise with you!!

For the rest of you, I'm sure David and I would hit it off just great!! Why? Because I'm the exact same person in real life as I am in here, and I bet David is too!

David,
That DavyB is a riot. And to think that I was almost about to turn off my computer. My three year old was going crazy laughing. He calls it the DavyB game.

maybe it's time for a sort of "e"epitaph, like a cyber epitaph.

.......'here posted DavidB'
.......'beloved poster, friend, adversary'
.......'respected by all, loved by some'
.......'hated by hazelson'
.......'1947 to 2005'


banker
(I guessed on the "1947")

Hi David,
I'm a bit confused about whats going on because I've been busy with a work project and not reading posts. Did I miss something? Okay , who am I kidding. I am always confused! haha Anyway, sad to see you are not around if that is the case. I enjoy your Scotchish humor and take on things. Who will Banker have to spar with?

Stop the fan club stuff right now, I aint got the money to start producing merchandise

Taking a break for a while as I cant take the stress of dealing with you Americans, but it was the Canadians that eventually threw me off the edge

I will be back and yes it was me that edited my other posts. Not the moderators

Thanks guys for the wishes and the concern. So come on get on with it keep griping

David

ps Banker, remind me never to have you write my epitaph
