Well it's been RAINING CATS AND DOGS here!

So maybe you'll get lucky and it'll RAIN GRAND PIANOS where you are! Then you can take your pick! smile

Hey Horowitzian! Opps! Right! You showed me a picture of the piano you have now! My mistake!

Anyways, looks like you need to find someone, a rich someone who has the piano you are looking for! wink Cause you look lonely all alone! smile

Starting to think you are probably not even old enough to drink! And I'm maybe talking to a 12 year old! Kidding! Just kidding! smile

This is about how much RAIN we got last night!

Hey Jerry!
Thought my house by the water was nice, but yours is MUCH nicer!
I forgot to say that I was happy you had a GREAT VACATION, but . . .
it would have been better if you had actually given me THE CORRECT directions to your COTTAGE!
Let's try for next year!

I'll bring the CANADIAN ICE! wink

I96 east to Detroit. Keep going over the bridge to Canada. Oops. Wrong directions already. I 96 west. Keep going all the way to California. Oops, to far. Hmmmmm, just can't seem to get them right can I??? Try try try again. Where did you finally wind up anyway? I tried to get you over to Howie's house but that didn't work either. Maybe I'll send you on down to Ron's house next hehehe!

Is this what you did Diane?

"A COUPLE sparked an early morning rescue when they took the wrong turning - and ended up stranded on the Holy Island causeway.

The man and woman, in their 60s, were on their way to Haggerston Castle Caravan Park near Berwick, Northumberland, when they took a wrong turn off the A1 at about 2am.

The couple, from Yorkshire, left the road too early at Beal and eventually ended up on the causeway which had been submerged by the incoming tide.

Their car cut out, forcing the couple to wade through the water to a nearby refuge box where they alerted the coastguard. "

Or this instead and just won't admit it?



But, you'd better watch out for these too if you do that...

I do believe you took I-75, turned and turned some more and wound up down in Mexico.

You missed it by only a few thousand miles or so...



Better yet, how's this for a 2nd home?

Holy Cool Cockpit, Batman!!!!! What is the purpose of keeping the nose of those planes under those little planeports!!!! Okay...I can see where it might be a pain to crawl up there and clean the windshields.

I think it keeps the plane from catching a cold? And maybe a little bird doo doo from the windows. grin

Easy exit into the house no doubt.

Yeah Jer....the covering keeps the bird poo off....splendidly pointed out!!!!

Actually I think I have seen that pic somewhere before. I think the house belongs to John Travolta...Poor Johnny must have had to skimp on the pool in order to buy that 747.

It's a 707, actually. Finding parts for such an old jet like that must be a bear. Not to mention maintenance costs. And people complain caring for a piano is too expensive! grin

Well, if I liked to fly t'wood be nice, Jerry. But I think I'd rather have a Mercedes for each day of the week...hehehe

Yep, Howie is right I suppose. All big airplanes look the same to me. Personally I'd have let the dealership keep that little one, and built a bigger pool.
