Our thanks to Gossipmistress for the postcard, Fifi for the smutty card and Jonnie for the card and coffee!

What a thoughtful bunch you are.


Meanwhile - this just in from regular Frogger Roberto:

"Roberto C. Alvarez-Galloso monitoring Dean with his computer in Miami Florida."

    Well really, Eddie, talk about defamation of character! I totally refuse to believe that Fifi would have sent a "smutty card"; that is so not like her. And I will continue refusing to believe it until you tell us what it said. So there!

    I can't help thinking there was another package from Jonnie though.....?

    A slim rectangular thing containing a shiny round noisy thing?

    Humph (4) : Had the punctuation inside the card been different, it might fairly have been construed as smutty.

    However, the apostrophe was correctly used so any perceived smut is in the smutty mind of the beholder!


    Fifi :oD

    Ahhh - so it's smutty Fifi - with Speedos involved!

    You haven't said too much 'yet' -- but I can see where all this is leading to.

    Sorry RJD, may I correct your punctuation? As any grocer know: "Apostrophe's - who need's them - thats what I says" Or should that be apostrofifi's?

    Are you ok Roberto? You are *glowing* a little in that photo - rather alarmingly orange on my computer!

    Fifi you are clearly a very naughty girl. Now you know where you must go...... (teehee see you there with the naughty jokes book!!)x

    Is Dean really suitable as the name of a hurricane or other violent weather phenomenon? It’s like being called General Sir Tim, or The Lord High Dave, or His Excellency Jim, or Chief Inspector Billy...

    For Vyle Hernia [2]: Thanks for your concerns. We were monitoring in case Dean were to come to Florida. But right now, my thoughts are with Mexico.

    For Gossipmistress [17]: Thanks also for your concern. After attempting to take this photo, I did came down with a slight fever for which I recovered. The rest is the lighting in the office where the self portrait was taken.

    Silverfox [8]: Thanks for your concern as well. Sorry I did not say it early. Right now, Dean left the Yucatan Peninsula but is still heading towards Veracruz Mexico. Roberto
