I would love it if you posted the pictures! Thank you for the description of what a penguin feels like - I guess they are waterproof?
That is funny, do they pick pockets? I bet they would think loose change was fish or something...
I can just "see" the scene and it sounds like such fun!

The penguin keepers said that if anything falls on the floor of the enclosures, the little rascals will scoop it up and swallow the item.  They then have a big problem getting the piece out of the bird's gut.  One penguin once even swallowed a set of car keys!

I haven't seen the any proofs of the photos yet, but perhaps when they are available I will be able to pass them on.  ---And yes, I'd say the penguins are 'waterproof''.

The first thing on my list is going to Greece...where my father was born and raised. He spoke of the island many times but never wanted to go back.
He used to say he wanted to remember it the way it was not what it has become. I guess he means the development there but to me it looks like paradise. The house he was born in is still there and distant relatives live  there now. My YaYa used to go for months at a time every year. My Aunt Pitsa goes just about every year..except last year and doubtfully this year. I've dreamed of it but now I want to go with my family.
Here's some pics of the island..the one with stream of water is a cove on one of the hilltops. Skyros, here I come!! Soon!! ;-)

Oh and another thing on my list..

Move down south so I can finally be with my extended family. I literally wish for it everyday, but I need to make it happen. I am so happy when I am there but my obligations always make me stop in my tracks. The will is getting stronger and stronger tho...and my boys are getting older...so hopefully I can scratch this one off my list soon!

Oh yeah and taking a crusie to Paradise Island for our second honeymoon. We haven't been back since our first..almost 23 years ago! Just my hubby and me..going back. ;-)

Jennine, before you move south we better hang out! Heck you live 15 minutes away!
I went to Greece. It is BEAUTIFUL. Although, NOW might not be the time to go, until things settle down. You know, when I had my practice marriage that lasted less time than it takes to eat a cough drop... we went to Paradise Island too! That was the best part of the whole marriage.  Not the honeymoon, but  the water and snorkling.

So now I have to add petting a penguin to my list....
And this is more of the wish list not bucket list: I would really like my PS to get my recon right so I can stop having surgery and just be normal. I think that would be nice!

Yeah G, you know it, we will!! I don't think I will be out of here for at least a year :-( but ya know I'm a firm believer in everything has a time and place...so I wait with a lot of patience.

Where in Greece did you go? My dad was born in Skyros...an island in the middle of the Aegean Sea, not too far from Athens. My daddy, I miss him so much. I still can't believe he is not here in body anymore, it's a strange feeling..it's like losing a part of me or something. Every year on my birthday he would call me and sing to me....I am so going to miss that. And it's strange my mother is alone...really bothers me..they were so so close.

After I sign off of here I am going to order your book Gina..now that I actually have time to read it! I make my own hours now so I can relax a little from time to time. I bet I read it in 3 days cause that's my usual when I have a book I am really into. Boy, my mind works so quick, sometimes firing like a bunch of firecrackers..but I can certainly multi task!!
It's the Gemini way..;-)

one major thing that I have postponed for years is going back to school. I finished radiation in July of '09 and started my online classes through the University of Phoenix in Aug. of '09.....I am going for my Bachelor's in Psychology. I am so happy I finally made this choice and probably wouldn't have done it if I hadn't gotten breast cancer.
