Hey Whip, If you can verify the dates, I may get my first credit card.

Have we ever had a BMWST Beach Party? hmmmmmmm?

Now that's a good thought!

"No, no, who am I kidding! I mean, they're not gonna be able to get all those poor people together! I mean, the logistics of the thing is impossible! It's more trouble than it's worth! So, we reorganize: here we go. First, the sex - we go with that; second, the money. No! We go with the power second, then the money, and then the kids. Oh, wait, oh geez! I forgot about revenge against my enemies!"

We would have a place for you to lay your head if our paths crossed.

I didn't mention the French Horn dopeslap wave


You still have a horn? Be sure to bring it to the party. With Mrs. Whip and me, we would need one more horn to play quartets. grin

this is way too practical, but might we worth a shot. wait until you're all gone, borrow any valuables left behind by all of you plus my own and sell to the "non-believers". you know, those kooks who couldn't imagine the world ending.

anyway with the extra loot somehow track down richard branson and buy a few seats on a space trip. search for a planet to land on and become king or something.

the preferable planet would have good roads, no camheads, red meat and sat tv.

I would do everything I thought about doing but legally couldn't.

You know, I've been thinking about it today and I don't think I'd change all that much. Of course, I wouldn't want to waste my time going to work, so that's out. I've got 3 young kids and what I enjoy most is spending time with them and my wife. We would spend more days visiting family and friends, at the lake or camping - basically what we do on weekends now. Sure I'd love to see the world, but these days when the kids actually want to be with mom and dad are precious.

Thanks for the inspiration to reflect. I'm pretty lucky already. smile
