There's no place like home
This is one of the few vacations I've ever been on where a major national -- or global -- catastrophe didn't occur while I was gone. That is, unless you consider this -- or the fact the President's daughter may soon be gracing the pages of Hustler magazine. So much for that whole "bringing morality and decency back to the White House" campaign, huh? Oh well, college kids will be kids... Whaddya gonna do? I guess she could always go on the down-low and train to be a Southwest pilot 'til this all blows over.

The Day I Get Home

When this young man comes rolling home
The lamp posts move and in the road
I sing and dance in falling rain
It's good to be back home again

The roads of air that map the globe
Take me away to places new
I'm lucky I can get around
I'm taking off and touching down

When I get home itís much the same
The tax returns return again
The news is on it isn't good
I see the trees but not the wood

The road stretches out as far as I can see
And I eat the lines ahead of me
It's experience
As the days unfold
But there's nothing quite like
The day I get home

When this young man comes rolling home
The cheese on toast is in the grill
Memories are filed away
I come and go, it's fun that way

The roads of air that map the globe
Go East and West and North and South
I like to look and see the sights
I stay up late and hit the heights

When I return things haven't changed
Neither have I, I like to think
The world's an oyster on a plate
I get around and get up late

The road stretches out as far as I can see
And I eat the lines ahead of me
It's experience
As the days unfold
But there's nothing quite like
The day I get home.....

If there is a higher power, George's daughter will appear nekkid with a butt plug and ball gag, getting it on with another girl. Please? Come on! *grin*

*ding* You may now feel free to move about the country ... naked.

I would have thought it would have been Jenna as the one that posed nude, not Barbara!

glad to see you had a nice trip and you are home. :)

You're back already? Goodness, I hope it went by a little slower for you than it did for me. I thought you still had another 3-4 days left or sumfin'. Ah well, welcome back all the same. Did you buy us anything? *chuckle*

welcome back! :) glad to see you had a great time! :)

If I had my way, Mike, we'd be gone another 2-3 weeks. But finances dictate otherwise when you live/survive on one income... ;-p Since this was our first vacation since '99, I can't complain too much though!

Welcome home, you two!

Yay! Welcome back. :D

Is Claire happy to be home? ;)

It really is too bad that of all the college kids who decided to get naked that particular weekend, Barbara Bush should be singled out---and given national attention---just because of who her father is.

I can't stand Bush; I understand that she's a public figure; and I understand that getting naked in a public setting (if she did so---who knows, yet?) is not necessarily the best tactical decision for a President's daughter to make, but I still think it's obscene even to threaten to do this.

Sounds like a little harmless college fun to me. I'm personally having a hard time imagining that the guys in the dark glasses would've let her attend such an event, or if they did, that they would've let anyone take with a camera leave alive.

Ok, that was a real sentence in my head; Not sure what happened there. Hopefully our hostess will be kind enough to edit that for me.

Oh yeah...welcome back and stuff.

Welcome home!

Welcome home!!! happy to hear you made it back safe and sound and that you both had a wonderful time. *squish*

I read the article. It doesn't surprise me that Larry Flynt would go looking for something like this. Hopefully, it doesn't really exist. But even if it does surface, I don't put any blame on her parents.

Ah well, welcome back all the same, Robyn. :) Who knows, maybe you two (three, sorry Claire) can have a "backyard vacation" to make up for it. I used to do that over here all the time...until they ran the new bike trail right behind our house...

Yeah, I love that obscure SQUEEZE song, too!!

Glad you had a good trip.
And for the record, I personnally have never flown naked! A better story is the one about a Northwest flight crew that happened to be husband and wife. They had some kind of minor incident that required a review of the cockpit voice recorder. Well, the tape reviewed them getting a little more than just naked. The tape can't be used for legal action against pilots - only as a means to address safety concerns - but I imagine the two were a bit embarrased!
