Mmmmmmmm...lulu, what a lovely basket of goodies! Thanks for sharing. As to the fence, we'll have to ask Lady Mudbug about that. I personally find these bug zapper racquets work well to keep down the pest problem

Hey, what kind of Siamese do you have? Apple heads or the other? What points?

welcome, lulu, and your nail polish too. We are pretty well insuated from pests, as Alix noted, but one never knows when one needs more firepower, so we will keep your kind suggestion in reserve.

Thank you Alix and Mudbug!

Alix, I have what in UK are called mordern classics....so halfway between an applehead and a "typey/extreme" cat. I have two girls, sisters, called Panache and Nougat. Panache is chocolate point and Nougat is blue point. While I am on the continant, before we return to live in UK I am going to get two more girls with European lines and return to UK to breed the occasional well planned litter of cats. I'll probably stay fairly classic with them, but go slightly more typey! I like healthy cats best....even though some of the really typey ones are simply beautiful I would be wary of breeding to close the the edge of health! Panache and Nougat are my babies, as I don't have "pink points", thank you for asking about them!

Mmm Mudbug, your staff serve the best drinks...

Guys. I got these Ragallo-wing hang gliders. Notice the dull, dark-grey fabric. It's a special rip-stop nylon, very lightweight and strong. These babies are designed with tufts on the trailing edge, like an owl's wing, to make them absolutley silent. I have a guy who can launch us from his C-140, at about 2 in the morning. And I've got these special low-velocity paintball guns that shoot soft, non-painful paintballs. I'm thingking that the fence needn't be a problem. We'll just fly over them.

I mean, after all, we've tried to be civil, even invited this group of snobbish women over for some of the best food going, and to take part in grand adventure. I say we now use the guns and some serious super-soakers.

Half you guys take on the camp, and the other half, well, we've still got the scuba gear for the boat. And I've got this wicked hot sauce we can spike their drink mixes with. I mean, we're a bunch of fun loving guys who just wanted a bit of fun, and we get treated like a hostile nation. So, if we're going to be excluded, I say we crash the party. Who's up for this?

I see Sushi headed to the wood shed now. I guess he received my "invetation"...I better take the shortcut so I can be waiting for him. He will rejoin the guys a better person.

Girls, should we offer a truce to the boys..If they promise to behave we can all have dinner together tonight.. I am having Lobster, fresh Scallops and Shrimp flown in this afternoon. They should land on the Yacht around three o'clock. What do you think?? An Olive Branch or a big .

I believe it would be a nice gesture to invite the boys over for dinner tonight, especially if it would cut down on those pesky mesquitoes.

errrh, I ate most of lulu's goodies, sorry , they were so good, thanks lulu for bringing them and glad you could make it! but I did bring some of Connie's fresh apple cake, if you would like a piece...
