We're almost seven years late doing ours. I often wonder if we'll ever get one

It's LAN airlines. Excellent airline that I have flown a few times. They instituted a new pricing structure a few years ago. The lowest fares are for residents only and, occasionally, they have some great sales in that price category. Normally it is over $100 even for a resident.

I know you can't control the memes, of course.

So true!

Now you have me trying to remember what we might have said... Drawing a blank, which is probably just as well.

Not sure. Perhaps there wasn't an equivalent. I don't remember one from the 80s anyway.

I think it was probably something snappy...like...

"I'm gunna ride me bike over that ramp".

HAHA yes!

Followed by a smack round the ear and a "stupid bugger" from my dad in place of pads and helmets.

Life has been super stressful and emotional the last few days, my Mum is rapidly losing her battle with cancer, she's on 160mg of morphine so any day now, my sister sent this:

Hi, Just wanted to share a Mum moment...

I've gotta do a tiddlle before I do a widdle,
I've been doing a widdle before a tiddle,
That's where I'm going wrong!

love yous
xxx


That is so my Mum, God bless her.

A couple on their honeymoon here at the hotel, so cute all snuggled up on the couch at the lounge. He's 79, she's 71!!
