I really DID try to get back on here on Thursday, just to say 'hi' but there was something wrong and I couldn't get on. We got back from vacation late last Sunday, but catching up with a bunch of stuff has really kept me on the hop.
Won't bore you wiht details of the vacation - but DID (finally) manage to get on one of those 'Air-boats'. Quite a thrill - it feels as if you're boating over almost dry land at speed. I've learned that I have pretty acute hearing and this was a worry to me because I'd heard that those boats are noisy, but ear plugs are provided, so that was one unnecessary worry. Saw one alligator - but just the head. Then had a visit from one that was 12 feet long. Came right up to our boat! Scary buggers!
Went through the Panama canal. I'm pretty damned old and not impressed by too much nowadays - but that is fantastic, when you see the work that actually went into doing it. See what humankind can do when they set their minds to it.
It still gets to me when I see how some people - Monica in particular - an function as a maid - and be perfectly happy. Prostate medications have practically sterilized me - but I remember full well that there is no way on earth that I could have refrained from masturbating if dressed and treated as a maid. I remember full well, that one of my fantasies entailed being 'forced' to continue being a maid, after sexual release. It never happened, but in all honesty, I doubt if I could have allowed it to happen. Still wonder - though it's pretty damned academic now.
I'm picking a short story at random - but as I'm too lazy to check - and my memory sucks? I may be duplicating stuff I did before. If so? My apologies. I'll try and be better prepared next week.
Hugs to you all!
