Java
D'ye think they'd let me be the trolley dolly?...ah've ay wanted tae do that....
Melody
Aye they'll have a wee uniform fur ye an everythin' laugh.gif Mind ye'll have to do the actions up the front of a plane.
Angela Chick
Wait for me(struggling with ma case) biggrin.gif we are going to gallus's house eh?? ave lost the plot

Here you Heather( in a posh judges voice) no im innocent of your claim im innocent i tell you ohmy.gif
Java
Oh, yours is a 'case' annaw is it....funny Mark's no been seen since ye packed....laugh.gif

Ah think ah'd be great at the safety instructions thing....s'jist like dain the hokey cokey really intit...
Gallusbisom
Right, you lot, just to be on the "safe" side, I have arranged for a pool boy/LIFEGUARD for all participants. (No daft, umma) secrete code there. Melody, hen, your duvet is the pinkest of the pink, (mind you, you do understand that we have the AC going contantly because the temp. is about 90, or so, average, every day? But not a problem, we will just turn up the AC. Jist let me know whin ye feel cauld. laugh.gif ) An the re-run (pure nasty that yin wiz, considerin ah didnae get tae see it in the furst place{excuse me, while a hiv a wee greet aboot that}) OK I'm back and of course we will have a replay of the meteor shower, no problem just ask your pool boy/lifeguard to push the right button. Angela, Indian is def. on the menu. I have a great recipe for a lentil curry that is Vegan but I have some other exoctic ones too. This is shaping up to be a great time. I have recorded all Jimmy's songs and we will play them at top volume during our soiree. Well, that is unless he turns up himself and gie's a wee song. We will have a sing song later in the evening but I have had such a sore throat that the doc. has recommended I do not sing, talking and screaming at the kids is Ok, just not singing. rolleyes.gif What can I say.


GB
Angela Chick
laugh.gif @ Java your mental woman, oh am really looking forward to this shindig gallus you have thought of everything i adore indian food.

Oh the thought of my flight to turkey is making me ill a hate flying a love taking of and landing but a hate being up in the air lol.
Heather
Ok Angela, I believe you thousands wouldn't.

Anyway he is posting the letter tomorrow, so you'll get it in a few days. wink.gif
Gallusbisom
Angela, yoo hive loast it hen! Take affs an landins ur the worst time. Nae kiddin. HRH is a pilot (no whit he diz fur a livin ye understaun) an that's the touchiest time. Noo, ah think that Carmella could verify that for us? Wance yir up things ur better an then ye jist hiv tae worry aboot the landin pairt. (maybe at the "puddle" party I will tell you about when HRH encouraged me to do the take off and landing stuff, this was in our own plane, so there was no danger to anyone else biggrin.gif It's hilarious. He was not amused.)

So anyone else have any suggestions for food, Indian, no problem, Scottish, no problem but what else? Come on don't by shy.


GB
Angela Chick
Gallus its the confinement up in the air i hate biggrin.gif och a just hate flying a spend most of the flight watching the flight attendants faces if they are smiling then im fine, cos mark falls asleep the minute we take off and that does my nut in sitting there like a halfwit with no one to talk to laugh.gif
Gallusbisom
Right, I understand, so here's a couple of suggestions. Get the bulkhead aisle seat and then you can at least stretch and walk around without having to say excuse me to a few hundred people. laugh.gif Or a emergency exit, aisle seat, and when that wee lassie says, "does Modom think that she kin open the door?" the answer is, "listen hen, ah'll be oot that door afore yersel". Now you will have to translate that into the English. OK? As far forward on the plane as you can get (you get served first and have more chance of getting your choice of meal laugh.gif ) Get up and walk around, if the crew are going about the humdrum things like putting away the glasses etc. then all is OK, if they are sitting in their seats looking a bit green, get back to your seat immediately and put your head between your knees and start talking to whoever you think is in charge of this mess. I have more funny plane stories than you would believe, most of which are to do with when HRH travels Bus. Class and your's truly goes super economy, sit on the wing and bring my own lunch. Some day I will write a book.


Oops, I think I may wandered off topic a bit, so to speak. That really is one thing that I do well. No tae worry, I am away tae check on the pool boys/lifeguards to make sure that they are all getting enough rest for the upcoming event.

GB
Angela Chick
laugh.gif Ok Gallus your wise suggestions are noted in my head. biggrin.gif
Heather
Angela do you not try reading to take your mind of the flying. Or do crosswords. You could even ask the Doctor for a sedative to take before your flight.

I can understand how you feel as our g'son does not like flying. He has been going abroad with his parents and us since he was a toddler, then two years ago when he was going to Salou with his parents, he started to cry when the plane took off. We don't know what caused it as it never bothered him before. But last month he flew to Dublin and was OK, maybe becase he was told the flight was only about 40minutes, plus one of his friends was him, so that helped.
Angela Chick
Heather i do read and such(well i try) but the fear overtakes me and i cant concentrate, i know i am like lots of folk then mad thoughts start going through my head its daft i know but i just hate it. rolleyes.gif
wee mags
Angela Iam scared of flying as well, and the joke among my kids was wait Michael till you see her antics on the plane,just make believe you dont know her ,well I surprised myself as I did not want my sone to think his Ma was a scarredy cat ,
as we took off Michael says look Ma, that young guy is more afraid than you and as I looked over he was hiding his face in the wee pillow and you couls hear him praying so I did not feel so bad
Catherine

Gallusbisom
Right you lot, I have just spent the last two days, washing windows and curtains ( I don't want anybody coming in and saying the "windaes were manky" mind you they were. laugh.gif ) Have the pool boys all lined up and I have requested that as least two or three of them are qualified in the "massesue" area. Only one or two rules, NO GLASS out by the pool, however plastic tumblers are supplied without limitation. And if you want to do "skinny dippin" you have to warn those of us whose birthday suits are well past their best sell by date, so we can go have a wee tipple. OK? Otherwise we are on a roll. I checked the weather for Glasgow and it was less than perfect but for Unionville/Toronto is bang on, about 90 mind you the humidity is awful but we can deal with that. Oh, I added Amurula to the liqueur list, I think you will like it.
