At least the yet wasn't in bold, if that had been the case I would have been quaking in my boots.

Of course if you want to... woo hoo!

But seriously, no pressure folks.
Let me rephrase.....I want to send you something. See the bold type? That means Buzz isn't playing around.

Just confirm for me, will a member of the Pkondz family be around home next Thursday or Friday? It will be fra-gee-lay.

Breaking story!
Bob, we have a late breaking news story coming out of Florida.
In the Magic Kingdom today a tragedy was narrowly averted when a child
was spotted on the tracks of Disney's Big Thundering Railroad (sic).
We now go live to Orlando, Florida. Barb? What happened there today.

Well Ken (get it? Ken & Barb?), we're talking with Joe (gotta throw G.I. Joe in there too, right?) who witnessed today's dramatic turn of events. Joe? Can you tell us what you saw?

Well, I was just waiting in line to ride Splashing (sic) Mountain. The line was huge and it stretched all the way past the railroad ride. Apparently there was a two and a half hour wait, but I was willing to do it, 'cause it looks really cool. You know what, though? If you've got lots of money and stay at one of those really expensive Disney hotels they let you skip the lines and just waltz right in! I mean that's not fair! I paid good money to come here and these people....

Uh, Joe? About what you saw?

Oh, right, right. Well like I was saying, I was standing over by the railroad ride and I hear this woman start to scream. I look over and I see this train coming along just barrelling down the tracks... and not too far ahead of it is this little kid. Probably no more then 3 or 4 years old. I have no idea how he got up there, but there he was. Well I thought for sure he was gonna be a goner when outta nowhere this bald guy vaults the fence and... I'm tellin' ya, I ain't never seen anything like it. This guy vaults the fence and grabs this overhead power cable and swings across the tracks and grabs the kid and gets him outta the way a split second afore he'd a been killt fer sure. This guy was like a superhero! I mean fast! Like a Olymbic (sic) sprinter or sumt'in. And he musta had eagle eye vision to spot the cable and know it'd reach. Just amazing.

Thank you Joe. Well there you have it Ken. A truly remarkable story.

Barb? Did you get the name of the man who rescued the child?

Well, not exactly, Ken. Witnesses describe the hero as fairly tall, average weight and bald with incredible reflexes, sharp eyesight and amazing strength and speed. Apparently he gave his name as 'Nebo'. Obviously an attempt to maintain his anonymity.

Thanks Barb. Well Mr. Nebo, wherever and whoever you are. Thank you.
Is this an example of the news always reporting the most accurate version of the story?

I can neither confirm or deny whether anyone will be home. But fear not, if no one is, we just go pick it up at the depot which is on the way to/from work.

But....

You paid extra to ship it and track it?????

You can always believe everything you read in the news and on the internet.

You missed a lot! Nebo crowned himself King of Disney and offered to take us all on a tour of his kingdom. But then he abdicated, I think...

No, wait. Now I remember. Nebo offered to take us all to the Magic Kingdom and when Smidgy found out, she crowned him and made him dictate an apology to the rest of us...

Yeah. That was it.

See, it's not just that it's fra-gee-lay is pe-rish-able.

I just wanted to make sure my favorite Canadian family was planning on being in their hometown to receive the shipment. I plan to send it USPS 2nd day on Tuesday. And it's not really inexpensive, but it will be well worth it.....trust me.

Can you explain it to me, because I don't remember a thing. Anyone have any aspirin? Vikes? I have a splitting headache.

Never was a huge fan of toffifay. But up til just now... I'd never heard of (much less tasted) mezzo mix.

I just assumed it was a rhetorical question.
Kinda like:
T-Man, "Where's the rum?"
Mrs T, "In the glass in your right hand... or the bottle in your left."
