I have the photos.... just waiting to see how much The Globe or People magazine are going to pay for them, then I will be able to pay for my next safari. Sorry you missed it Dennis. Hope you can make it next time!

Clematis, it was a bumpy ride! Was sitting on the couch reading the paper, heard a boom, couch started shaking, could see the house shifting and twisting (it's on post and pier), me and my dog ran out the front door and saw the car bouncing around. the power went out for a short time. All I could think of was "Don't let the house fall down, I'm going to Africa in 10 days!" All airports in the state are closed, Kona hospital was evacuated due to damage, roads closed due to landslides. Other than that, it's a beautiful day in Paradise, 80 degrees and a slight tropical breeze.

I was thinking of you Dennis and am glad you and the livestock are ok. Funny how the mind works - thinking of Zambia - priceless
Carla, it will be nice to live vicariously thru you and the other CA. gang - we're all envious and look forward to seeing those pics. and finding out if anyone misbehaved. Any bits of juicy gossip are always appreciated

No one misbehaved... darn. That might have been funny.

Dennis, do you live on the Big Island then? I'm glad you made it through.. and love your first thought (about Africa).

Ok guys, I couldn't get a single bid on the photos from People or Inquirer so they are posted under the original LA GTG thread. I kept the jacuzzi photos for myself though, sorry!

Wow, Dennis, that sounds scary. Very glad to hear everything's okay with you, your dog and your upcoming trip to Africa.

Hey, Carla...still getting that "no photos published" message when I click on your link. Maybe you need to buy some of those topi stickers!

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to let everyone know that I am going to do my best to get the photos up. There seems to have been a misunderstanding and one person did not want to appear in the group photo to be published online. Unfortunately, that person (no fault of his/her own) appears in both of the group photos taken.

Carla has now forwarded me the photos and I am going to tinker around on Photoshop tonight to see if I cannot edit that person out of the photo (no disrespect to that person intended, only to protect his/her desired privacy).

Thanks Carla for your efforts and I will try to work a little magic (but be forewarned, I must be about the most retarded freelance "professional" photographer out there...hopefully my recent private Photoshop classes will have paid off).

Photoshop a giraffe over that person!

Again, no disrespect intended, I just love giraffes.

none of the people in the original pictures looked like anyone on the wall of the post office...so what's the problem? I've got some topi stickers from Nyamera you can use.

It's far too late, I already saw those pictures. Now I will have to inspect for voids to figure out who this is. Perhaps the suspect did something funny to Carla's pics. after I saw them.
See, I told you there'd be some gossip here. A cheating spouse, a spy from a African travelcompetitor, someone in drag ??? Julian? Maybe it's Scooter ((&)) being coy with the papparazzi.

Scooter is actually a bit peeved at Carla that he only had a single photo dedicated to him and that, even then, he was not allowed time to properly pose.

Scooter is MUCH better looking in real life and I have honestly had another Corgi owner approach me to ask if he was available for stud services! Scooter was not too happy with me, but I turned down the offer. Hopefully he has since gotten over it.

No,No, No I didn't mean to infer Julian may be in drag, Dennis (although). Don't start rumors Somehow, it does look that way when looking back, though - Julian just rolled off my tongue after the in drag mention. Is Julian around?

Well, there was a Juliana at the Get Together and she did seem uncannily familiar.

JUST KIDDING!!!

(Julian is in Tanzania right now and is not exactly in a position to defend himself, so have a go at it).
