I don't think I could do what Banky did. Way to go Dude!
But I have to say I have conquered other fears. I once touch a pet boa constrictor. And there is a very deep rooted fear that I have dealt with back in 1999-2000. Even though it would have been a disaster for my parents to stay married their divorce did have an affect on me. One that I wasn't even aware of until I took the time to analyze my life. Once I tackled that fear Life was all the more sweeter. Ask Kanga he would tell you how much better our marriage is since then. We all have issues. A lot depends on if you take the time to deal with them or not. Life can be good, or it can be great. Your choice.

What is the difference between girls/woman aged: 8, 18, 28, 38, 48, 58. 68, and 78 ?
At 8 -- You take her to bed and tell her a story.
At 18 -- You tell her a story and take her to bed.
At 28 - - You don't need to tell her a story to take her to bed.
At 38 -- She tells you a story and takes you to bed.
At 48 -- She tells you a story to avoid going to bed.
At 58 -- You stay in bed to avoid her story.
At 68 -- If you take her to bed, that'll be a story!
At 78 -- What story?? ? What bed??? Who the hell are you???

MrGadgets Almanac of Techie Wizardry & Travel Compendium
A few tweeters showed up:
Heard at the gathering: Banky saying "I've moved onto other men boys" after Logtar made a comment about stealing Banky's friend.
But then Banky said that "Logtar is quick.....to please"
Kanga said "If you get an erection..." I think he was talking about chastity belt in the medieval times. (I hope!)
There were parlor tricks down on the Tweeter end of the table. Followed by the comment "You have to like the finger"
It was a great time as usual.

The retreat was great! Lots of silence, which I broke a few times ( I know you aren't surprised at all). I didn't have to do any cooking or cleaning all week. All I did was show up for mass, meeting, and meals. I also took naps in the afternoon. I don't know if I can maintain this serenity if I have to work, and don't have naps. I read a couple of books. One really touched me & brought tears more than once. Kitchen Table Wisdom: Stories That Heal by Rachel Naomi Remen. Some of the music was moving, so moving I was in church at 7:45am every day.
I'm looking forward to seeing a bunch of you on Tuesday!
PS. Google Reader is 345 posts waiting for me. You've been busy while I've been gone.

Saturday I'm heading to Colorado for some spiritual healing.... I'm coming back on the 18th. I don't think I will have access to a computer & I'm not taking mine. But I am taking my Motorola Q phone & have web access on it. IF I can get reception I'll be checking on you & posting on Twitter (in my sidebar).
Very peaceful, relaxing, and recharging. That's the plan. I did find out last night that they now have air conditioning. Thank you Jesus! Last time I was there it was 105F. It's a dry heat they say. I'm here to tell ya I was soaking wet. It's a beautiful place. Here's a few photos that I took last time.
I'm hoping to get started on a small tapestry while there or at least some knitting. I'll also be doing some reading.
Don't blow up the internets while I'm gone.
I'll see you at the July Blogger Gathering!

He was suppose to arrive tonight just before 10pm. The f-ing flight was delayed in Rochester. He finally arrived in Atlanta. He called me to say that it's a zoo there. And get this: his flight leaves AFTER midnight. I was hoping to be in bed spooning with my honey by then. It's now just after 10pm. He should be here. It's been a long week.
We don't like being apart. I know, hard to believe. On July 27th we will have been married for 23 years. We have a great life together.
Kanga was worried about me being alone here at the house. He also was worried about me having to walk our dogs. Big dogs! The dogs & I did pretty well, even though we missed him. Not to mention having to deal with a Great Dane who is terrified of fireworks. Thank God for Rescue Remedy.
The last two Saturdays my girlfriend, Professor J, & I went shopping, had supper out. Then back to my home to hang out. She stayed both Saturday nights, crashing on the couch with the cats. We sat around on both Sundays drinking coffee, talking and watching the wildlife here. There were all kinds of birds, squirrels, a chipmunk, and a groundhog.
Kanga just called to say that they are boarding, midnight Atlanta time. And this is why I will be driving to Canada in August. He wants me to fly. I don't think so. I rather spend 2 days driving up & 2 days back than deal with planes & airports.
So while I wait I think I'll paint my nails. Got to be pretty for the hubby.
