Playa Info people rock!

I just have to say, that last week, my 22 year old son, Seth, and I had one incredible vacation, in no small part thanks to all the way cool people we met. Squish, Haley, MJ (Starfish) and Mark, Terry and girls, CallmeRog, Clint and Scott, and last but by no means least, the Bumpers!!! I have never met a more fun or friendly group of folks on a trip in my 51 (am I really that old?) years. Now that I have finally figured out how to post (thanks for this site, Dave), I assure you, that I will be a major yapper on this forum. I may not be able to produce as prodigiously as Bumper, but I shall not shy away from my penchant toward verbosity. Traveling with a 22 year old "chick-magnet" is definitely the way to go for a middle aged guy, my magnetic days seemingly having faded. I was delighted to find that the main beach at Playa was almost as I remembered it from 7 years ago, when my wife and I stayed at the Albatross. Seth and I loved the friendliness and convenience of the Costa Del Mar. The daytime beach scene and evening bar scene there are exactly what we were looking for. Thank you, thank you, thank you for including us in your world(s). I will be back, with my lovely wife Susan. Seth will certainly return, as well. Hope to see you folks, and meet some new ones next time. I'm working the ER, so I best go check on my patient - jobs, who needs 'em? Oh yeah, I guess I still do. Is there a hospital in Playa that needs an experienced ER doc? Hmmmmmmm. Living in Playa? Hmmmmm. Cheers, Doc

Brian it was so nice meeting you and Seth. We are already planning on returning next year, same time. Hopefully we can convince the Canadians and the rest of the gang to join us!
Can you say "twist my arm"?

Housecalls for everyone it is! I am also medical director of an alcohol and drug treatment program, so perhaps a daily Playa Info detox service could be set up? Squish could be a charter member! (JK) Cheers, Brian

P'SHaw!!!!!

WHO exactly was the 'chick magnet' doc??? Did you notice our ages or are you just being kind?

Oh, and yes... I will volunteer to chair the PDC de-tox forum - at least for this week. Good to know there is a doctor in the house finally!! How much for a sick note?

Hola Doc;

Great to have you on board. It's super to finally have a "Doc" to add to the Sneezy, Bashful, Grumpy (Guess Who?), Happy, a LOT of Dopey's etc. etc etc. The casting couch is still working on who gets to be Snow White , but I think I've pretty much got a lock on the Prince Charming role.

Gee Bumper... since you DID propose to me - on several occassions - doesn't that technically qualify me for Sleeping Beauty status?

Quite so, my dear, quite so. And you did have your chance, but if you'll recall, you declined on each and every occasion. Ya snooze and ya lose! Besides, I don't think you've kissed enough frogs yet, to qualify for a bout with Prince Charming. ("Frogs", by the way, is not a reference to French Canadians, at least not in this instance. Considering where you're at, mon cher, you may have kissed enough of those.) Also, considering the pace you set for yourself when you were in Playa, I'm surprised you're not still sleeping, my beauty!?!?

Something else just occurred to me. Do you suppose the Good Doctor might just be looking on us as a "Project"? Figure on clinking two Sol bottles together to see if we salivate or something, Doc? Planning on worming your way into the forum's confidence then getting a doctoral thesis out of this, Brian? How does everybody feel about being a part of a group of knee walkin' lab rats?

Hey Bumper -

If it's volunteers for a fact finding mission...well...perhaps we can persuade the good doctor to apply for some type of federal grant $$....

Sounds like a plan to me. Now that I'm retired, and won't be getting back to Playa for a while, I've got plenty of time to give to such a scholarly and worthwhile endeavour. Nowhere to go, and a long time to get there. The program of study required could be a thoroughly rewarding experience. Just hope the cork doesn't fall out of my homework.

Thesis, we don't need no stinkin' thesis...

The closet thing I've seen to a doctoral thesis pertaining to alcohol is the Bumper posting, rating no fewer than 43 tequilas! Now that is truly a scholarly endeavor, worthy of publishing. Most of the articles in the addiction journals are the usual boring tripe... stuff like "a new "gene marker" on the 43rd allele may bear some relationship to the release of dopamine in the pleasure center of the locus ceruleus in response to having a zillion cold beers with some really cool people on a beach in Playa, blah, blah, blah". Actually that last part started to make some sense to me. I'm more interested in bringing our local detox "model" to the beaches of Playa. We use an R.N. who runs the unit, while the doc on call is available by phone. I envision a lovely, bikini clad nurse (preferably female) overseeing 4-6 beach chairs, while administering Librium or lorazepam, to aid the transition back to beer and tequila several hours later. As medical director, I'd be close by, at the bar, able to respond if needed. There may be a few details I haven't considered, but it's a work in progress, OK? Drink up Shriner! Doc
