Off to the "happiest place on earth", or at least until some toddler misses the afternoon nap. :(
Luckily the kids are grown, and we can say "go have fun, be back at dinner time" :D

I'll refrain from posting (vacation time), but it'll be hard. See you next Saturday.

I don't think you have to say have a great time when somebody says they are going to Disneyland, it goes without saying doesn't it? Have you been before?

I've never been to Disneyland but have always wanted to go....TAKE ME WITH YOU! :lol:

See you when you get back and take photos. :D

Hi Guys

I am going to be away from the forum for about a week as I am going to have to take my PC in to be repaired as I ahve a CD shatter in the drive whilst it was being played and I am no good at replacing the drive myself so I am taking it to a professional to be done.

No Brummie, "productive time" are not the words you are looking for...it's called withdrawal...the shakes, the anxiety of not being able to access SB! Was there for a few days! Did not like it! :(

Heaven only knows what Philly is going through!

I would actually turn both down as I have given up alcohol.

Well it is fixed now, so back haunting the Board.

We have to fly back to Michigan this weekend for my mother-in-laws funeral. Not real keen on flying. The funeral I can handle, flying to Detroit (for any reason), not so much. Be back next Thursday.

Margo - No pictures this time :shock:

Thanks Margo.
Not quite yet. It's still pretty warm, with higher humidity than I'm used to. Michigan people take their short Summer seriously, and the uniform of choice seemed to be flip-flops and shorts. There is usually a short period of cooler weather, then "Indian" Summer", before the seasons really change.

*For those not familiar with the phrase:

Fear not, I haven't stopped collecting stamps - oh no, dear no, God forbid! That day will ne'er come to pass!

But, I've been on Stampboards a lot less as of late. And I haven't been delving into my own collection as much either. I'm sure once the holidays come around again, things will be different. I haven't forgotten you all, my fellow collecting comrades. :) However, in the meantime my mind is rather busy what with studies once again in full swing and too many essays are all due at once (the story of my life!) And when not at university I'll be at work, and when not at work I'll be studying at Uni. And, er, to top if off, there may or may not be a young lady involved...

Mid semester break time in Hobart, so plenty of spare time lately. :mrgreen:

Hi everybody. Currently in Voss in Norway and heading for Bergen by train shortly.

Been a wonderful trip so far. There will (eventually) be a thread with lots of photos of mountains an fjords, ferries, planes and trains.

Not quite half way through trip yet but too busy to look at the board until yesterday.

Is nobody away except me?

Waiting at Heathrow, London for flight to Dubai. 24 hrs there and then off home with a Monday arrival.

Four weeks away is both too long and too short. See you soon in the cyber world.

Hi guys

I will be in Sydney, Australia for 6 or so days starting this afternoon. Not sure if I will be logging or not as my trip is over my other interest - Prince.

I am going mostly for a party on Friday the 18th - Cream Prince Party at the SlyFox in Enfield road, starts 8pm, entrance free and it helps if you are more than a casual fan of Purple Rain only. This is all the hardcore and rare stuff. Its like saying that my commitment to Prince goes way beyond the Philatelic equivalent of a new issue.

Its all good MargoZ, we get that type of weather all the time here, its raining now, and has been pretty much since May. While you guys are sweltering under 35 degrees and sun, we have been getting 16 and 17 degree days full of cold showers, mist, downpours and some sun with icy winds.

If anything I have been blowing the dust off my shorts before packing them. My flights not until 5.30pm and its only 12,30 so have a bit of time yet.

Hi all, I am pretty certain I will be away from SB early December, flying high, late nights and early mornings watching my little ray of sunshine, yes my Wife and I will be expecting our little man. So I guess I will be banned from SB :mrgreen:

Three weeks of reading and posting left. I might sneak a peak in SB to and from work on my phone :lol:

No public transport up here in Far Northern Queensland town of Atherton and my work is 30 minutes drive away from town, lucky I car pool so I will definitely get some shut eye :lol: and sneak a peak at SB.

Thanks Brummie, I will for sure share photo's and info on our first baby.

Just letting you know, we got back last week. Didn't cross my mind to post here until this afternoon :oops:

We went to Sydney...Glossodia to be precise! Near Richmond and Windsor...Blue Mountains area...the devastation there from the fires is quite depressing.

I was really hoping to get up there in time to gatecrash the SB dinner with OttawaMike...would have loved to meet up with all that went.

Unfortunately, things did not run to plan and we didn't get there until late Sunday afternoon!...Should have left hubby to his own devices and just flown up as I had originally planned!

Still, we had a good visit with daughter No 5, her husband and 4 kids...We hadn't seen them for at least 18 months...the kids have grown so much!

Geordie showed me all the books he got from the Carpet Court competition (thanks to all SB'ers that supported him too!) and pictures of the books he gave to the school. I was very impressed!

I'm not too sure if it's good for your health, but I did the "good Grandma" thing and got down on the floor and played Thomas the Tank Engine with Will, who is 3, for about an hour...you know the drill...make train sounds and whistles etc, etc...his eyes would roll when I would ask him (for the tenth time!) who is this?? You just got the "Oh Grandma...I already told you!"

Best part was, just when I was ready to give up...he looked at me with this little grin and said "Grandma, you are my best friend". Needless to say, I stayed a little bit longer...but needed help to get off the floor!!! :(

Worst part of the whole trip? I forgot my address book and never sent one postcard!!! Oh the shame!!! I'll make up for it next time...I promise!

Hot, but a lot of fun, as I got to go to the Prince party and stayed with someone who was a bigger fan of Prince than me. But the weather was really hot and I saw some bushfire. She was out in West Sydney, that area was pretty poor, lots of graffiti and run down houses, felt sorry for people living out in this dry wasteland, while at home we have abundant greeness.

I'm flying out to Whangaparaoa, NZ on Friday evening will be out-of-action until early December. I'm looking forward to my brother-in-laws wedding but a longer holiday would be better!

The best part will be re-uniting with this wee one who has been there for a L O N G week and a half already.

I will be away from the boards for a while starting May 10th 2014.

My partner and I are going on a once in a lifetime trip to Europe (Never been to any Northern Hemisphere outside South Korea and 1 day in Japan). Unless the Russkies intervene, start a war we will be flying to London, and doing a 27 day Cosmos "European Masterpiece" tour which will take in France, Spain, Italy, Greece, Austria, Switzerland, Germany, Netherlands, then 3 nights in London, 3 in Hong Kong on the way home and then home on June 15th.

We talked about it for a year and booked it in early January and now the waiting is nearly over. I will be taking my tablet with me, so I may log in time to time, but I won't be posting anything, as my stamp collection will be locked up in our storage unit, while I am gone.

We are visiting some interesting Philatelic micor countries too, like San Marino, Liechtenstein (Lunchbreak between Innsbruck and Lucerne :lol: ) and the Vatican City.

Its gonna be a blast, 7½ days to go :lol:
