I totally get it. The concurrent foul ups (is it me? it’s not me…is it me? Damn it!) The beauty of the spontaneous bff hook up like you’ve known e/o fo’evea… That bird people are no different than cat, dog, horse people (crazy as loons we all be) AND that you are a very good writer. And, whoever invented spellcheck should get the Nobel prize in something or other. Thanks, enjoyed it muchly!

RE: Spell check Nobel Prize: Great Lois…Now you’ve got me checking the post for errors! (Is it a hint? Is it not a hint? Damn it!) RE: Irene: yeah, it was pretty much like that…she even said so. Still, it wasn’t necessarily something i expected! Thanks for enjoying the post. It was effortless to write.

NONONO!!! It was an observation I’d made way back when I FOUND it and realized I couldn’t spell for poop. I do like to write a tad, albeit(I love that word) mostly rather sarcastically, and the result is often lost in translation (God, she’s a bitch AND can’t spell for s..!). *smile* has become my sarcasm font. I also hate it when I’m on a roll and have at some point hit the cap lock…2 finger hunt & pecker here. Grrrrr….A smart ass parrot could do better *smile* see?….
You write very well. THAT was my point w/a humorous aside to spellcheck. *sigh* (my font for frustration). This one went to nursing school back in the day ’cause she couldn’t type and could never keep her weight down to be what she really wanted to be, a road warrior like yourself. I was born w/o a metabolism and a huge case of wanderlust. *smile and sigh*

Yyou forgot to mention you ran into me, I’m hot, however, when I have a meltdown, I bounce back!!!
“Burka Air” is on the drafting table. What about yours?

(May I explain that Kathy Mancuso is one of the smartest, most fun people I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. She is fun, interesting an as crazy as i am…)
Yes Kathy, I’m scheming and plotting for our “Stewardess Review” next year. I already had plans in the works for this year which didn’t happen, so it’ll be easy for me. I’ll just send you photos, ideas and uniform options. “Parrot Nation Aviation,” “Burka Air,” “Leather Elves Air,” and “Good Bird Global.” take off next year!
