Lately, I am the happiest when visiting the Caribbean. Anywhere in the Caribbean.


Have you been to the Southern Caribbean yet George? I’ve only been out of the country once and that was the Dutch west indies. We flew into Aruba and took a schooner trip to the other islands. The place was a paradise. We went snorkeling off a German freighter sunk during the War and took two tours of the island. The people were very friendly and thankfully spoke English. I don’t know Dutch and my German is too broken to understand, besides their native language is Papiamento, a combo of Spanish, Portuguese, African and Native Am. I do hope to visit inbreed either this Summer or next for sure! Besides, if you want international, stay in NYC.

BTW , lazy fucks and asshoes are also on my agenda to visit.  And I live right next door to Jesus and meth. Really. They now have mobile labs in their trunk next to the reb flag and the huntin’ rifle.

And if you’re thinking about traveling, Mike, here is a map to help you decide where you may want to go cheese :

LOL  Oh No!

S***, it’s a frighteningly accurate map!  At least with North America, it is.

Have you been to the Southern Caribbean yet George?

We got tickets to go to St. Lucia last year but cancelled at the last minute and went back to Dominican Republic instead. Maybe this year. Although I really want to go to Turks and Caicos: it looks beautiful.

Yeah, I’d planned a visit to the Windward Islands, especially Martinique but ended up in mouse land with the granddaughters. We ate with the princesses in the castle. It was fun, not exotic but fun.

I think we might be due for another torture at Disney as well. I don’t want to even think about it.

I hang out at Epcot when we’re there as much as I can. I like to torture the German kids with my fractured speech plus the food’s pretty good and I can get samples of several German beers, get tippsey and dance to the oompah band with the girls. They love it. I also like the soarin’ ride.

Maybe I’ll just have another kid. It had worked in the past: For the past couple of years I stayed at home with our youngest boy who was too small for Disney while my wife took our older boys by herself. I know it’s only a temporary solution since I can’t keep having kids forever, but I’ll worry about the future when it gets here.  grin

That’s a pretty expensive plan George considering that raising a kid nowadays takes upwards of $200,000 plus college expenses, unless your progeny share your intellect and get a scholarship. It might be better to just bite the bullet and go!

Oops, That was just an estimate. Factoring in college etc. a child born now would cost $300,000. Today! Better rethink your strategy George. It ain’t that expensive in mouseland! C’mon what’s a few days of cotton candy and mindless entertainment. Besides, you might like the teacup ride!
