Agreed. Well said HAP, but you sir are one-of-a-kind in your own right.

There are many on this forum who have shared their homes and their lives with dogtired and jonkster (and other fellow RATs) as a result of what you have done. It is in the doing that a difference was made. I am one of the fortunate. My life has been blessed by knowing them because of you.

The great adventure awaiting all of us is in doing something that makes us stretch. Instead of sitting back, watching TV, working too many hours, and generally letting life walk all over us; I believe we humans are at our best when we embrace the unknown.

Or the unwashed.

Or both.

Mrs Tripps isn't normally really a "people person", she loved Dog, and was happy to have him, and said he was welcome back any time, for as long as he wants. (Better not be when I'm out of town, bud! )

I have offered to set Dennis up with a position in Recearch and Development at my guy's company. Pretty much an offer no red-blooded man could refuse! HE'LL BE BACK!

He'd bloody better be! Never met a better couple of guys - speshully on the Internet. A big mention to my lovely other half who didn't bat a lid when I suddenly announced that 'those two guys I've been telling you about' were arriving in a couple of hours and oh by the way I'm going to spend the rest of the week with them. Best tuna packers, rafters, riders and constant looks for more good fun.

If I may be so bold, as someone who lived overseas for 6 years, and travelled a bit, too, most people really like U.S. citizens, they just hate the U.S.
