Woo-hoo Smidgy! So glad you are a member of our anti-shopping club. I don't like grocery shopping either, but I have to feed the kids something. It's a necessary evil.

You are on Marita! Meeting you would be the highlight of the trip for me!

And yes, Pkondz, it would be ahead of getting the ZDs for you. Getting those to you would be a highlight, just not THE highlight. ZDs are mass produced, we only have one Marita!

Yeesh, surely you're not going the route of putting me in the position of Simon Says in your TR right? You wouldn't do that, would you old buddy, old pal?

Calm down, Buzz, LOL.

You think I'm boring online, I'm even worse in person. A talker I am not (ask Smidgy). Talking and shopping are not my strong suits. But if you can talk, we are golden, I love to listen

Hi Ponzerooni! Sorry that it took me so long to find you (or maybe that was on purpose?). Embarrassed to admit that I've become a bit of a lurker of late, turns out that making your hobby into a second job can take up a lot of free time. I'm here now though, and ready to harass you-I mean join in the fun!

Beautiful girls! I'm excited to hear about the trip!

You are far from boring Marita! You always have my back around here, with certain people (yep, P and N I'm referring to you), I need the support, particularly when tangents are shifting and flying.

It was great catching a momentary flash of the Pkondz family as I donated Tinkerbuzz to you for a period of time. Hope she was well behaved for you.

That's pretty much how I remember it. She was very well behaved. Slept the whole time...

Well, at least she wasn't awake, the whole time.

Woot! I've got carte blanche here, people!!!

I should feel slighted here. Having to play second fiddle and all.

But when you're right, you're right.



Nope. Can't do it.
I should be number 1 on your list!!!!

Nah. I don't believe it for a second.
I'm betting you've got tons of stories from your job that you could regale us with.

Me, on the other hand.... I'm kinda dreading any DISmeets.

I can see it now.

"Oh, look! Here comes pkondz! He's so cool! So amazing! So suave! So debonair! So..."

Well, you get the general idea. I couldn't possibly list all the plaudits that you'd heap upon me.

Anyway...
"Here comes pkondz!"
I sashay up to the group.
I glance knowingly at each of you in turn.
I sit, oh so nonchalantly, yet with such a commanding presence, on a nearby seat.
What will I say? What pearl of wisdom shall I utter...
And out it comes.

"Huh?"

Yep. Just ask Nebo. A sparkling conversationalist, I am not.

A typist, perhaps.
But not much for small talk.

Ah well, there it is.

Oh.... carp.

I owe you a big apology.
I was kinda wondering if you'd dropped off the DIS. Here I hadn't heard or seen anything from you for a while.
I thought I'd say something pithy like, "Well! Look who's back! Haven't heard from you since...."

Better check your PTR, to see when you last posted....

How did I miss that you'd posted a link to your TR??????

I have no idea.
A thousand apologies, my lady.

I will be heading over to your TR as soon as I can!

Who is this "P and N" person you're talking about? He doesn't sound like a particularly pleasant person!

A small piece of string? Delicious! And she's on to me....as soon as I catch her and go to remove the object she clamps her jaws and I mean they are sealed shut.

I'm calling it now, Tinkerbuzz is going to be a force to be reckoned with.

It's just a matter of time before she tries to eat a bug, hopefully just not an evil looking bug like the boll weevil!!

I find that hard to believe. One of these days, I'm going to have to call the P. Kondz home just to test out your small talk skills. Nebo claims his phone battery died the other night, but I suspect he got tired of hearing laughter in his ear and he hung up on me!

The "you" should be a "you guys" or "ya'll".

I remember that stage... But I've since stopped.

Acid reflux

But (as Neebs would say... but it's perfect here so I'm stealing it), I digest.

Our pup is 6 now, but she's got a sensitive stomach.
For the first couple of years, though... Oy!

Pkondz, I have to tell you about DS's upcoming history test. Well, at least the preparation for it.

One of the review questions was Canada is a:

a) city

b) country

c) state

d) frozen wasteland

e) pavilion in World Showcase

My little intrepid third grader chose the correct answer, of course a tie between d and e!

No really, he did give the correct answer, but DH changed it up a bit and said "Mr. Pkondz lives here". No delay at all, I don't think DS even blinked before he said Canada.

He has four tests tomorrow, spelling, French, math, and history. Third grade seems to be where the schooling starts to get a little "real".

I need to post his weekly challenge words so some of you crafty wordsmiths can help me break them down into easy to remember segments.

Actually....

They're all right!

a) city : Canada derives from the native "Kanata" which means village, so you could say this is correct.

b) country : self explanatory

c) state : given the state of our various levels of government... we are in a state of despair or disillusionment... so this is correct, too.

d) frozen wasteland : again... self explanatory

e) pavilion in World Showcase : so I hear... haven't been in it though. Which is kinda weird, no?

How'd the tests go? And feel free to post away...

Oh, all right. I'll get started on the next one soonish.

Me too!

And I was just finishing off the first draft when I lost it all.





Back to the drawing board
