    In your honor, BAS: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HPyl2tOaKxM (language, oh, plenty of language - what else can you expect from a song about commercial flight?)

    Been there, done that. And I know I will do it again, despite all my resolutions. After all, if I choose that weird flight from that out of the way airport at weird-o-clock, I can get some nice pearl earrings for myself. Do I have to mention the hotels as well?

    I was a fool. When I booked my super cheap trip home I didn't realize that not only was it a midnight departure (that, I knew) but it also wasn't a direct flight! And there was a lightning storm so the lay over was even longer than expected.... all's well that ends well. I'm home.

    Just home after a harrowing 16 hour journey (my fault -- I f#$%ed up my flight home in a most miserable way). I'll post pictures and a report when I have my wits about me.

    The Ruckus was insanely fun and the only bad thing is having to wait a whole year for the next one!!!

    I took the opportunity to ask Douglas to repeat the story of the Purloined Pearls from his point of view. It was very entertaining, as Douglas is a terrific storyteller. In short, Jeremy had brought the bag of incredibly metallic pastel freshwater pearls to Mexico and showed them to Douglas. Douglas admired them and said they were very nice. When Jeremy left Mexico, he thought that Caitlin had the pearls, and vice versa. Back in the states, they discovered the pearls were missing. They did not mention that the pearls were missing to Douglas. However, a few days later, a woman came into the pearl shop in Mexico to ask how much the pearls she found were worth. Douglas told us that this happens frequently, because fishermen, etc., will find a pearl and come in and inquire about its value. So nothing unusual here. But, when he looked at her pearls, he recognized them immediately. He said, how did you get these? And she said that she received them from an American in exchange for her personal services. It took Douglas only a moment to consider this in his mind, and determine that she was probably not telling the truth. He told her he needed to call his American friend and ask about the pearls. At this, the woman left the bag of pearls and ran from the shop and was not seen since. Douglas called Jeremy and discovered that indeed the pearls were missing in Mexico, and most likely had been stolen by the hotel maid. Needless to say, there were no personal services involved! There was great rejoicing that what was lost was now found, and the pearls were returned to their rightful owner.

    Lovely pics, thanks for sharing!

    Hopefully, I shall make it to the next one in 2016, and shall bring my colourful Hawaiian shirts as well as pearls along.

    I was there as Douglas and Sheri were selecting the Sea of Cortez keshi for that tiny (spidery) octopus. The color in that tiny pearl is to die for.
