BT and Red, you will be great helpers in the greenhouse! I'll bet we have some fun, too.

Charlie, we could just gather and celebrate the sunset every evening, like they do in Key West.

Yeah I know! I just didn't realise that taxi didn't immediately register with you guys. We don't use the term cab here and I don't automatically type in American.

That actually varies throughout the US too. In some areas they say cab more often and in others they say taxi more often. We used both in my family but said cab most often.

Bring the "family". The more, the merrier. They just might meet some new friends to play with. I've got a big cafe.

Afterwards, Buck & you can take the "family" to the park and walk off lunch or supper. Or, take a nice stroll through the park after an afternoon snack. I'll provide the special doo-doo bags for anybody who takes their pets for walks through the park. I'll have a special bag container outside of my cafe along with a garbage can. If needed, I'll also have leashes & harneses for those who didn't bring along one for a walk in the park or, for those who'd like to have something attached to their pets while in the cafe to keep them near them.

Same here. If we are calling out we yell "Yo taxi!". If we are talking about it, we say "let's catch a cab". Just depends I guess.

Hey, do we have a clinic around here or a Dr's office? I have a killer cold and I think I might be needing some meds for my sinuses.

My DH needs a little nursing himself - I'll be glad to pick you up on the way if I knew where we were going! LOL

Cool To complement PDSwife travel agency...

Ladies and gentlemen, Thank you for flying Virtual Airlines flight 101 to Virtual Community, DC. The temperature outsite is a balmy 95F. The aircraft is now about to land. Please place your tray in the upright position, all bags in the overhead lockers. When disembarking and exiting the terminal, please accustom yourself with our Virtual Community Tourist Bureau which can arrange local sightseeing tours and be sure to book your accommodation through our local travel agency. May we suggest the Virtual Waldorf Astoria. Our taxi/cab service is available for your convenience.

(always wanted to be a air hostess, many, many moons ago made it to the interview stage for Qantas but too short. Needed it to be nice and hot, the snow has melted!!)

Hmm...I'm a 911 operator by trade, but I've got dibs on being the town's angry loner!
