Well, it is probably over, BUT, I just got an email from her after 3 months of silence. So chapter 2 begins. It may only be a paragraph long or ...........

Thanks for the well wishes

Re: MJ Resurfaces

one more hint from the old f*rts.......those "loose chicken" women don't like to be held on to too closely........you might retain a real relationship with this lady if you give her some space.....sounds like she is one who really needs that.

Good luck......just enjoy what comes your way and be prepared to allow it to slip through your fingers and sometimes it hangs around....

Enjoy your travels...

I'm totally inexperienced in this particular field. To my dismay though, I observe that in most "relationships", the female is the one pulling the strings, and man just dances along. :

BTW, I'm not specifically referring to vagabond's case, just speaking generally.

Congrats
I'm just a guy with a little smarts and a lot of dumb luck. I just decided to take my marbles and go play somewhere else (in the world). I'm hoping the kids are more playful.

I'll tell you how great I have been doing after about 3 years, no make that 5 years, no make that 10 years, no make that .......

Thanks though.

Hi DM,
This was my first trip to Laos. I didn't get to Vietnam yet. Since, I'm not a typical tourist, I usually don't do most of the sightseeing stuff. I did the route starting in Vientiane, Vang Vieng and Luang Phrabang. I pretty hung out with both the travellers and locals. I did a lot of local bike riding around each of the towns. I met some real interesting characters. In Vientiane, I wasted about 3 to 4 hours a day for 4 days going to this wat that offered herbal steam sauna and massage for the expensive price of $4. I did have my 1st traffic accident ever in Vientiane, when I was clipped by a motorbike from the rear. Luckily, I just felt a strong bump and stopped my bike without falling. On the other hand, I saw that the motorbike and the female driver both laying on the ground. She started crying that it was my fault, while I responded by pointing that she rear ended me. After about 5 minutes and no police insight, I calmly got out of there quick. In southeast asia, if you step out of your guesthouse, you are already in the wrong.

As far as security goes, whereever I went, it always felt secure to me no more what time of day. Of course, being from NYC, I keep my guard up when appropriate and I try to stay clear of intoxicated locals.

I didn't bring a laptop with me this time and missed it. I sure would like to bring one next time. I would love to keep in under 2lbs but man, that Sony is still real pricey. Wimpy, shwimpy, 2 extra lbs after 2 or more months of travelling is 2 lbs too much.

Well, it serves you right, everytime Billy leaves the pool and I try to make my advances to you, you continuely reject me
because of some silly reasons like your deep love and affection for Billy,
so I am forced seek out younger and more naive women who might fall for my innocent charm.

Same thing happened to me here in CM, when I went to my local bank wearing my hannibal lecter smog mask even though I know, the guard knew me because of my bicycle helmet and folding bike. I guess rules are rules.

And of course, if you have a fever going into China they don't let you in, if you have a fever when leaving China they don't let you out. How do they know? They utilize a laser gun which they point between your eyes onto your forehead which takes your temperature instantly. I would suggest you bring a few aspirin in case you get intestinal discomfort and your body wants to fight it off. Better to take a few aspirin than stay in quarantine for 2 weeks (or who knows what else...)
Lucky for me, my body temperature is 1 degree lower about 97.7.

Huh? Are you saying that my observation is not in line with reality? Not being argumentative, just curious.

Boy oh boy - I'm glad ya'll are having fun - it certainly doesn't look like Kansas!

Makes me want to put on my Dickies coveralls and drive my old pickup(with the rusty fender) out in the country for spring in the tall grass prairie.

Seriously though - keep posting the pictures and updates - interesting stuff.

heh heh heh - 8).

Hi Sam... I don't exactly know what to say here, if indeed your question is honest. I just might be the one here who is the 'dope.' I never really learned how to manipulate - my problem has been that I am 'all in plain sight - what you see is what you get.' That has put me at the disadvantage numerous times. I don't play games, I don't calculate. I have that 'put foot in mouth disease' and I simply change feet from time to time.

In dating I looked for friendship and being straightforward about things as much as possible. The rest simply confuses me... :P

That being said, I have had girlfriends who were absolute masters at the game. To be honest, it sickened me and I told them so. (got nowhere) Part of the confusion for me, was that men seemed to want that kind of push/pull/confusion/obfuscation - they found it exciting or something... All part of the chase... until they got burned badly...

I dunno.... maybe that is why Billy and I have been together for 30 years and so many of our friends and people we know are on their 2nd and 3rd spouses...??

Am I simply changing feet once again?

Re: MJ Resurfaces

Well, I finally uploaded the photos, I have taken so far.
Considering how long I have been in SEA, I didn't take as many as most tourists would have but I plan to increase the number I take as I get into travelling more.

Of course, my private collection of explicit moments will be available on a pay per view website. Worth every $1000 you will pay for each visit.

Hope you enjoy the free ones.

MJ

Actually, I wanted to see if I got your attention.

Btw, photobucket can be a bit slow at times.

If it appears to be hungup, just press stop button and press the reload or refresh button
