    [​IMG] I think you're safe. They enjoyed the Bahamas, but won't be returning. It was really expensive there. Over a hundred bucks for a simple burger dinner for 4. She brought a suitcase of food, so they only ate out one meal a day. Since Hawaii is closer and has better diving they'll go there next time, so you are out of the path of danger. [​IMG]

    Ruh roh, DH always wanted to go to Hawaii....

    I've been before, 3 weeks of paradise, but....now I think I'll persuade him to go somewhere else, heehee. Well anyway, it'll be a couple of years.

    Geez, didn't know Bahamas were soo expensive. We do the tote our own food/snacks thing when we can, too.

    We took those powdered drink mixes, tea, lemonade, etc. to AK with us. Tremendous help on costs of drinks, from the airports, trains, buses, hiking etc. We took our water bottles, empty of course, then would fill them up with water, add mix.... once cleared through secuirty etc.

    It will be interesting to monitor your friend's travels and resulting weather formations. It's like you have your own personal weather forcaster. giggle. :lau Chirp

    good morning all! it's totally foggy this morning! more thunderstorms coming this afternoon... so it looks like we may not have free range today... we'll make it better with Pie...

    Cricket, Pie can be made with anything you have on hand - I buy Ramen Noodles for the gang (Mylee likes it too...) but since I'm not allowed to eat it... it's great for Pie, they go crazy for the noodles like giant worms! I just put a brick of noodles in the bottom of a bucket, then put other stuff on top to hold it down a bit... stuff like feed, seeds (BOSS, millet, safflower...) or kitchen scraps - and fill the bucket with hot water. let it soak for 15 minutes or so... and the noodles are cooked, the feed is mushy the way they like it... and I pile it on a platter to serve, top with some of Mylee's unfinished fruit or cereal or more seeds.... then there are "dry" Pies, with mostly kitchen scraps... have some fun with it, the chickens Love them... and begin to expect them [​IMG] and will maul you whenever you come outside...

    Now that just sounds like fun! I've just been dumping things in a pile...I have not been a very good chicken Momma, heehee. :oops: This would also be a hoot to do when the nieces/nephews come over. Great ideas! Thanks, Chirp :jumpy
