If you'd kept your wits about you, you could've pretended that turbulence was all you.

So, you're a mineral at all other elevations?

Hey...That was Boru's line!

It is official, Hillbilly Atheist and I are now both at Russell Island near Brisbane. We are going to do a night time SEACAT (fast water taxi) tour of downtown Brisbane on Sunday at night when all the buildings and bridges are lit up. I think we might even go to a place to pet dolphins next week. HB(Hillbilly Atheist) wants to do a balloon ride but that is on him. I hate heights.

It's always amazed me that people who dislike heights so often have no problems with flying.  You're just as dead if you fall from three hundred feet as from thirty thousand.

I hate the height of flying too. But it feels more like being in orbit than being on open cliff.

I've been having problems lately trying to post personal images on this website. Hillbilly is going to give it a shot at some point for both of us. He has a better Iphone anyway.

The couple we are staying with, as nice as they are, are very superstitious. The lady is a climate change denier, and buys the bullshit that the planet changes naturally, which it does, but she doesn't understand that pumping out too much CO2 by humans is acting like a blanket trapping the heat speeding up the hyper active atmosphere beyond what the planet absorbs naturally.

Her husband is into Asian religions and believes in Karma. It is everything I can do not to scream. It is teaching me patience though.

RE: G'day Mate......
So last night Debra and Will, her husband, took John and I to a friends house for a party. Kinga is her name. Really nice lady and a fantastic painter artist too. Here house is eclectic as well as her paintings. She loves to paint parrots and I was floored by her paintings. 

Anyway, she was a refreshing break from Will and Debra who'd be GOP voters if they lived in America. Kinga is a our version of a liberal, grew up in Poland and knows what threat Communism was and still sees Putin as a threat to eastern Europe. She hates Trump as much as John and I do. But she has tons of virgin Mary icons all over her house. She was a great host regardless. 

But as an aside. When we got back from that party, we sat on the side porch lawn talking, must have been for 3 hours. So at one point John goes in to use the bathroom, comes out and discovers he cant find his I phone. Will and Debra had long since gone asleep. So John is quietly freaking out, in his head over the possibility of loosing his Iphone, so we have to tiptoe in around a dark house to avoid waking them up, trying to find his phone. 

So John decides to set off the alarm on it to locate it. We must have been searching for 10 minutes or so before he did that. So he set the alarm off on the phone while we were on the side porch and we heard it, but couldn't figure out where it was. Mind you, it was very dark outside. We looked on the steps under the steps, nothing, but still hearing the alarm. Turned out that John, while sitting on the toilet, had taken it out of his breast pocket, and laid it between his legs in the interior of the crotch of his jeans, so when he pulled his pants up the phone slid into his pant leg. Finally after pulling a pat down like a TSA agent, the phone fell out of his pant leg onto the porch. I was laughing so fucking hard knowing we spent all that time trying to find it, both of us blind as bats searching for it in the dark when it was in his pant leg the entire time.

So I joked with John, "The best part of your IPhone ran down your daddy's leg."

I tried to paint parrots once, but the paint made their feathers all gummy.

Sounds like you're having a smashing time, Brian.  Happy for you!  Smile

Well, there you go. Electroplating them works so much better.
