Hey Doc!
I have to agree with your observation that going to Playa with younger "magnets" is a great way to meet new people - whatever the age! You and Seth show up great in pictures Emilie shared with me today at lunch - she says "hi!". It's hard to be back home after 2 weeks of sun, sand and surf! Glad to see you make an appearance on the forum - it will be nice to keep in touch - find out when everyone will be heading back for a reunion perhaps??!!
Hasta luego Brian!
Terri

Yo Doc;

You sure you're not a "Closet Canuck"? What you're proposing sure sounds like socialized medicine to me. (Now there's a can of worms to open up that can rapidly turn into a barrel of snakes!)

Doc, My wife Tammy (Palmtree) is a R.N. (and looks good in a bikini ) and would be up for running the beach clinic. She works in a post op. unit so is use to patients that are groggy and need help getting up.

She's Hired! I'll bring my blood pressure cuff and a duffel full of Librium. Squish, Bumper, does this sound like a valuable new service or what? Cheers, Doc

Did I look THAT anxious and stressed out that I need Librium now? DOC!!!!??? Oh, wait a second... also used in Rx of alcohol withdrawal I see. So, you really ARE a doctor?? Come up with some 'funner' stuff than librium and I will be a volunteer with the organization!

Oh, and why exactly are you bringing a bloodpressure cuff? Is is because Palmtree is such a hotty nurse? (nee ner nee)

No Squish, you did not look the least bit stressed out, having seemingly taken the art of relaxation to new and dizzying heights. But yes, indeed, Librium is still a good old fashioned treatment for alcohol withdrawal. Speaking of "Old Fashions", they would also work quite well, as would the requisite Bloody Mary, of course. As for the blood pressure cuff, it's only to monitor the BP of our "patients", although I might use it to keep tabs on the health of some of us over 50 people as well. I don't know how much of a hot nurse Starfish may be, but I certainly believe her husband in this regard. We husbands never lie ABOUT our wives, only to them. Hope this helps to clarify! Cheers, Doc

Nurses

Hey Doc,
I think you have me confused with Palmtree. I am by no means a nurse.
Jeeze I pass out at the site of a spilled Margarita. Although I used to be a Pharmacist Tech. So I could despense drugs "leagally" if the situation would arise! So if you do have a job for me, I sure could use some more time in Playadise.

Uh oh Doc...
Seeing a trend here!
First James is Dave
Now Starfish is Palmtree!

What would you prescribe for THAT?

You trying to kill me, Doc? I've seen PalmTree, and Squish, and Starfish in bathing suits. Not nice to get an old codger this excited. You might just as well put that BP cuff around my neck and start kicking dirt over me. One foot in the grave and the other on a banana peel. Put a fork in me Doc, I'm done! (Are we back on the subject of socialized medicine again?)

Wow, I can't believe I referred to Palmtree as starfish, although MJ did look good in a bikini, too. And I didn't even notice UNTIL NOW that I referred to james as Dave, and he nicely replied, "You're welcome, Dave"! And I did these posts SOBER too! Maybe that was my mistake - sobriety and my relationship with the "Playainfofolks" just don't seem to work well together. I'll try to proofread in the future Doc

Wonder how docloch is coming on that $$ for the study we were hoping to be a part of...

My guess is that it's hung up with the ethics committee!

Good guess...but maybe....
See drinking and public service go hand-in-flask so with the ethics committee mired in conflicts of interest, etc...I'm thinking they're forming some sort of fact finding commission that will be gathering first hand information in Playa soon...

THEN it'll be stuck in appropriations until all the I'll vote for yours if you vote for mine wrangling is done...

BUT, once in place - it is awfully hard to get rid of...and with continuing resolutions to keep the business of the government functioning - perhaps we can make the grant a matter of high level governing!!
