Keep touring Plook

BBP - 16-7-2022 at 09:58

I've noticed that there are no previews shown of downloads anymore. The files are still downloadable, since they're animated best open them in a web browser. If you want to use an image, best use the img tags:

Plook - 16-7-2022 at 20:18

I was wondering about that Bonny, need to work on it...:D


No wrestling last night Kat came down with a cold so she stayed at her worships castle...:(


This morning my good buddy H-dog and his gal E got married I went to represent for Team Plook it was a wonderful setting at his brothers amazing home outside of town, very nice.


Now I need to go get me Lady and make her some soup and tea to help her along the road to recovery...:roll:

Eddie RUKidding - 16-7-2022 at 20:39

Is the soup good enough for the president :lol:

Plook - 17-7-2022 at 01:00

Plook Palace home addition

I bought steps for the pool tricky to find ones that fit and that is not a certainty yet...:shocked:

Plugging along though I need someone to come over to help with the final install in the pool keeping my fingers crossed...:drums:

Plook - 17-7-2022 at 12:34

Completed the Pool Steps project after about 3.5 hours, at one point I realized I needed sand to fill the sides to keep them submerged and had to buy of course a 40 pound bag of sand...lol

Fortunately Kats daughter came swimming and had her fireman husband with her we had to make a lot of modifications for it to fit my pool but we got 'er done.

Headed golfing its the ungodly hour of 4:30 am I get up earlier on the weekend to golf than I do to work during the week for work and I need my beauty sleep...:roll:

BBP - 18-7-2022 at 17:34

Glad to hear the pool's doing well! I could really use one right now :D

Plook - 18-7-2022 at 17:39

Tee'ed off on the Golf Course at the butt crack of dawn had a very good round shot 39/41 for an 80 with 1 birdie, 8 pars, 8 bogeys and 1 double bogey...had 3 putts rim out so the potential for a 70's round was there...:grin:


Kat was still under the weather and headed home around 3 pm so she could get in bed she had to work today, her daughters family came over to swim, then Minnie and I had our lonely chicken dinner...:(

Eddie RUKidding - 18-7-2022 at 21:08

Your better at Gold than me Plook- maybe you should do a round with Alice :duh:

Calvin - 19-7-2022 at 00:29

I've been off of the Zappa forum for 2 or 3 months. I had to change my email address because the old one was spam bombed. When I changed it on the forum I had to wait for it to be activated. MTF and Polydigm both messaged Mikey to activate my account again, and nothing. MTF gave me the address to mail Mikey, and nothing. Maybe it was because he knew that it was going to be shut down. Or not checking his messages. Shrug. I hadn't been really active anyway.

Plook - 19-7-2022 at 01:26

Cal glad to hear from you my friend your answer a question thread delivered the most laughs per pound of anything on the Zappa Forum.

I don't know were Mikey stood on the shut down but he did reply to a couple of questions and one PM from me but then went dark, I never received a reply to two more PM's and to questions on the "Announcement" thread.


The great news is Bonny let use join her here on her little Oasis, I just have to get up to speed on how to fly this thing, I figured out how to write in Blue...lol...but I can't post an image if my life depended on it...lol

BBP - 19-7-2022 at 07:16


Eddie RUKidding - 19-7-2022 at 21:17

Here is a map of Eddie planned tour to Queensland from Cohuna Via Jayco Caravan and Tata Pickup :biggrin:
- leaving in 3 weeks with Mrs Eddie

Plook - 20-7-2022 at 18:31

I can see Eddie can't load an image either maybe Bonny could put together a step by step on posting images, just thinking out loud...:grin:

Kat is still sick she has had to take two days off so far, she is feeling better but this cold took her down negative for COVID is the good news...:)


Yesterday was the Tuesday from hell very busy and tried to do a final exam from a 32 course training, 60 very hard questions and I kept timing out and it would send me back several questions which was ok since I got an opportunity to get an answer correct that was wrong but when I finished and tried to get my certificate it timed out and sent me back to question 16...:swear:

Such is life...:lol:


P.S. I can't seem to choose from any emoji that isn't already in the window from my reply the others above even if I check the dot next to it will not load and I tried dragging them to the reply window and that wasn't happening any emoji training would be welcomed...:wow:

Plook - 20-7-2022 at 18:33

I see I got an emoji to load up by the date, now I am totally confused...:bouncy:

BBP - 20-7-2022 at 20:12

I just posted an image and it shows up as a cross. It could be a permission thing, let me see...
(if the picture shows up it's not permission)




(there is an emoji training in the Newbies section. If you click More Smilies on the left, they'll all pop up, there's lots :bald:

Eddie RUKidding - 20-7-2022 at 20:31

Good Kat does not have Covid- been lucky in Cohuna as me and Mrs Eddie have not got it yet - going for our 4th jab next week.

What are you studying Plook?

Plook - 22-7-2022 at 18:38

Eddie the test I am trying to finish is the culmination of 32 Training class's (about 20 hours worth) for the company I work for that cover work flow, financial structuring, project role out, data base management, forms, engineering documents, on-line tools, product ordering, material management and a host of mind numbing subject matter. It is easy to see why one would not want to take the 2 to 3 hour test again.


But wait there is more I also had to take another 16 for Safety (about 15 hours worth) for all sorts of possible injury threats fall protection, ladder safety, trench awareness, slip & fall, airborne pathogens, hazardous materials, electrical safety, lockout tagout, radio frequency safety, rigging safety, add nauseum with a 30 hour OSHA class still waiting in the wings to be taken.


But that's not it because as a Quality Assurance/Auditor II ranking I fall into 3 categories the previous class's covered Project Management and Construction Management but I also fall under Implementation Manager therefore I got the pleasure of taking 8 more class's for 5 more hours covering Leadership & Supervising which is what I call the Ra Ra Ra Kumbaya courses for leading through motivation, vision, inspiration, positivity, delegation, prepping your delegate, managing conflict, and my personal favorite emotionally intelligent leadership.


Honestly that last group were the most bearable and had some good stuff in them, they were interactive so by how you answered a question about a situation with various characters in them the training would follow the path created by your specific answer, if you answered differently the course would have different out comes it was very thought provoking.


My brain is bulging...:freak:

Plook - 23-7-2022 at 00:03

Kat made it back to work today she had a rough go of it with that cold, I am sure the ship will remained docked tonight and I will be cooking her some healthy healing food...;)

Sh!t, my company could use someone like you.....
We are Cohuna's best kept secret- no we have not got a basement yet! :P

Good to hear Kat is feeling better
I currently listening to my recently purchased "in Adelaide" copy of Shut Up and play your Guitar (vinyl LP Boxed set) :shy:

Plook - 26-7-2022 at 00:11

Edie your company does some cool shit thanks for the link...:grin:


I have been pre-occupied for the last few days so I will give a little update, Kat showed up Friday night but we did a low key no wrestling thing, I made chicken noddle soup, chicken split breast, and a chicken salad since she was sick but it actually got me a bunch of jokes...lol...:bouncy:


She had to babysit Baby J so she left early but I knew she wasn't feeling well because she didn't even grab a cup of coffee that I made and she is one coffee drinking Gal...Day, night, any time, even before bed...:shocked:


Saturday I broke out the pool rumba my sis sent me ( a very generous gift) I wanted time to read all the documents and take it apart and put it back together before I tried it. It kicks ass, it maps your pool and figures out the cycle time to clean it, it takes about two hours.

I did a bunch of other weekend things then whole crew showed up for swimming and Kat came back we had a blast...I had everyone in training for how to sit on a surfboard and paddle it was actually very funny they had a lot of bloopers...:D


Sunday I went golfing at the crack of dawn shot an 81 which is good but a few careless moves cost me a few strokes. The highlight was on number 14 a par 3 that is well protected by sand traps from the left front past the middle and the right side slopes away so even if you land on the right side of the green the ball tends to funnel off into the rough making for a tough chip shot. So I tend to assault the traps and club up to be sure I carry the sand traps but choke down a little on the club so I don't fly over the green into another set of trouble...well the shot landed on but I juiced it so it rolled all the way to the back of the green and the pin was in the front leaving me about a 70 foot putt, which I sank for birdie the guy tending the flag literally had his jaw drop when it went in...:lol:


When I got home by 10 am with an early lunch from Antonio's and a Starbucks for Kat and I, we just kicked all day and watched some TV she needed the rest and actually so did I...:)

Eddie RUKidding - 26-7-2022 at 04:27

Nice one Plook good to hear -keep on Touring :mad:

polydigm - 26-7-2022 at 12:50

Image posting is exactly the same as at zappa.com. You need an image url, then you place it between BBCODE image tags [img][/img]. Bonny hosts her own pictures and so do I, so it makes it easy, whereas many places on the Internet don't like you bumping their image links.

Plook - 26-7-2022 at 18:11

Good stuff Poly and need my images I am nothing without them, I host all my own stuff on Photobucket, but the other stuff I grab on the internet and 90% of the time there was no issue posting them on the Z Forum...lets give it a go.

Work is on fire this 5G thing cannot be stopped and our company reported they have 6G solved but we will have to wait and see, all I know is we are slammed and they are considering adding more Quality people if they do I hope they bring in someone I get along with because we are a very small group so it's like roommates and if you get one that is out of sync it can cause a host of issues.


Well back to the salt mines have a couple hours to go...:umm:

Oh snap thanks Eddie!

It's on!



Eddie RUKidding - 30-7-2022 at 22:36

Well done Plook :cool:

Plook - 2-8-2022 at 00:40

The weekend went really well Kat is all the way back to her energizer bunny self we set sail Friday and actually stayed up a little later than usual since you baby sits on Saturday (Baby J is cutting in on my action) and I had a list of stuff to do around the grounds of Plook Palace and hit the pool for a few laps...:bouncing:


Kats daughter (TODP) relieved her early so we had a nice dinner and watched a documentary about some horrible police work and it got her ramped up because she hates lying cops because she was married to a good Sheriff (people would request him when they turned themselves in or they would not come in willingly)...:shocked:


We hit the hay early since I had to get up at 4:30 am to go golfing which was excellent, the weather was good but the wind kicked up on the back nine but I was on fire shot 79 with 1 birdie, 10 pars, 6 bogeys and 1 double bogey...I played 10 holes in regulation that is a huge stat...:roll:


I was home by 10 am and brought something to eat and watched some stuff on TV then she went to get her feet done and we kicked it when she got back and had a tour of Italy dinner, she goes home early on Sunday because we both need to be ready for our work week, we are definitely worker bees...:D


Eddie RUKidding - 2-8-2022 at 04:12

I went to a pub on Sunday at Gunbower - a place we usually go (me & Mrs Eddie) to hear a blues band but after we had our meal I encouraged Mrs Eddie to hit the road cause the Lady singer of the band looked like a full on old witch and I did not want to hear what was going to come out of her mouth ............:D Reminder me of a real life Camarillo Brillo type thing :D

Plook - 3-8-2022 at 00:28

OK I had to take a final examine for all that Construction/Project Management training and it was a bear, 60 in-depth questions that took about 2.5 hours to complete after 3 restarts because I had some technical difficulty. I passed with an 87% in a test you had to at least score 80% so slide in to home, I am a happy guy...:D


Now they have me taking a 6 hour training for Private 5g Networks which was assigned to me by a Director so I can participate in some early trials I believe the first one is with Verizon. The training is ok but most of our training is normally real quality video training (we have our own Production company) but this one has a lot of reading which is the kiss of death for tired old man...LOL...:lol:


Girls came by and cleaned the house it was TDPTY and TODP, I had another tree branch break on the peach tree there were a lot of un-ripened peach's dropped I threw out one 5 gallon bucket. The girls broke everything down and thrww it in the green can then I cut up what was left with the chainsaw, have a second 5 gallon bucket full of peach's I want to see if they will ripen...:cool:


Peach's is one of Kats favorite romance songs...:biggrin:

Eddie RUKidding - 6-8-2022 at 02:15

Plook - 6-8-2022 at 16:56

We had a successful voyage last night...:cool:


Kat had to go to the East Bay for a hair day with her mom they enjoy the time together so we had an abbreviated Friday night for an early wake up...:D


Since her daughter TODP had to watch Baby J I am on soccer mom duty driving granddaughters around to their appointments today...:roll:


Well off I go to my first drop off...:drums:

Plook - 8-8-2022 at 19:49

Weekend went well all that girl ride thing was something else no wonder the moms are drinking a lot...:lol:


We kicked it Saturday Night I made chicken and vegetable skewers with Anti-oxidant vegetables and and an Italian antipasti salad...:cool:


I got up early Sunday and hit the golf course played well shot 79 again with 10 pars and 8 bogeys I'm playing over my head but that's good, we hit the pool in the afternoon with some good summer music it was nice...:D


Then this morning I was trying to log into Teams for an early meeting and it would not open so I did a restart and zap my screen went dark and was flashing uh O...I get a message on my phone from Internal corporate that world wide anyone who did a restart on their computer was getting a blank flashing screen and do not restart your computer, this potentially affected 100,00 employees...:mad:


It took a while but they figured out a hard reboot would fix it so I am back in the game thank god I didn't loose anything that I can tell so far...:grin:

Eddie RUKidding - 8-8-2022 at 22:06

What a jam packed weekend, Kat babysat Baby J Saturday and I was running around getting stuff done, worked in yard, did a pool once over and filter swap.


Sunday morning I was up before the butt crack of dawn to go golfing had a decent score (82) but I didn't play as good as I have been it was hard work to scratch that score out and I was actually physically soar afterward quite a work out.


Then in the afternoon we had all the girls over to swim and have a BBQ, needless to say I was out before 8 pm I was totally cooked...but we had a blast!

We lost Jim...:(


One of the people I grew up with in our massive horseshoe with a cul-de-sac neighborhood that was 50 kids strong...:bouncing:

The Hood




A super nice guy about 6'3" not a mean bone in his body an accomplished construction worker from a very young age (Journeyman by 18 years old), we built a skateboard ramp that came out awesome in 1977, just a really good guy, we reconnected at my Moms memorial in 2019.

Some of the Hood 2019





We skateboarded together, surfed together, and performed all sorts of hijinks...One of our big ones was the Rocketship Gumball Machine hist, when we stole an awesome Rocketship Gumball Machine from a super market in broad daylight and got out clean.

Rocketship Gumball Machine



We got about $10 out of it big time money for 1976 but the highlight was the contest to see who could get the most gumballs in their mouth...LOL...I won with 60 Jim and Steve came in a close 2nd with 58 I just waited until they gave up and grabbed 2 more...Even crazier we made a giant ball out of the chewed gum and put it on top of Steve's neighbors light pole and it was there for over a decade, I think everyone thought it was an ornament...:lol:

Stay Tuned...;)

GrayGhost - 20-9-2022 at 08:36

Hold on to your hat.....That's going to be a hell of a show.....

Plook - 20-9-2022 at 14:35

Now seeing you here almost made me hit the floor how are you a nd the little lady doing?

GrayGhost - 21-9-2022 at 09:08

Ahhhhh young Plook, during the two Months of radio silence, I was periodically perusing the Goose,
keeping abreast of the comings and goings,
whilst occasionally spamming the community button over at z.com.....

In a lame protest at the "shut down" FZ was entirely dropped from the in-cave
playlist, (that'll show em!) and replaced almost exclusively with a steady diet
of Black Sabbath and Roger Waters.....

Before I could reach for the noose 'n' razor blade combo, the little woman
intervened by buying me a copy of Zappa Erie.....
(which I secretly own via the I buy it give it to Joe 90 who loans it to me forever ruse).....

I e mailed Bonny and, after the usual checks with Interpol, I'm joined.....
and I might have hijacked The infamous "what are you listening to" thread.....

Frank's back on the playlist and I'm lovin' his new album.....

The little woman was obsessed with the death of Queen Elizabeth II,
usually not big on screen time she was now tearfully glued to the 24/7
coverage with bursts of The Crown dvd's that her friend loaned her, ages ago.....
mmmmm those two could be up to something.....

Once the live coverage had largely ended so did the TV, and the wee one
seems noticeably brighter mood wise, I'm guessing there was a little suppressed Cookie grief involved,
so all in all the Queen is dead, long live the King.....
(who's advisor during his mid forties was an ancient elm tree he named Nigel in London's Royal Botanical Kew Gardens,
but that's another story)

and on that note, what is the per post character limit on the PackardGoose?

pumpkin:lol:pumpkin



Plook - 21-9-2022 at 20:43

Gray you always deliver, please give the little lady my fond hello’s.


Here in the US the Queen was wall to wall for 10 days, I know more about that woman than I ever should. I must say that some of the things I learned were quite entertaining so it was not all for not...;)


As to Rodger Waters Pink Floyd I will need to put something together, Kat and I traveled with my long time Nor Cal friend H-Dog and his extremely funny wife E…We had a glorious time but it will take minute to put something together especially since I have the pay back double for a day off to refund at work and tomorrow is my B-Day (Bought the tickets for my B-day in 2020…:shocked:). In the meantime here is a quick round-up of the events…:singer:


It was amazing if I had not seen the show in 2018, I would say best ever, but do not get me wrong the show in the round was great also.


Giant flying sheep and pig almost close enough to touch, massive 4-sided shadow box above the stage that nearly filled the stadium showing videos as clear as possible with live shots intermixed with preselected visual, and long walkways on 4 sides that came all the way out to the riser on which different performers rotating around the stage would regularly walk out on including Rodger.


After an intense instrumental of sound and sights they transitioned into Comfortably Numb for the opener! He almost played the complete The Wall album, then a large selection of Welcome to the Machine with Shine on You Crazy Diamond being sung by the entire crowd!


He also interspersed some of his solo stuff along with rare old songs from the late 60's and early 70’s, also many selections from Animals as well as Dark Side of the Moon.


It was all that and a bag of chips with a lot of intimate moments where he went into great detail explaining his music, the idea was to think of it as a bar setting where we were all having a pint together listening to and playing music, it worked by the crowds overwhelming reaction...BTW their sound system was unbelievable the road crew has 140 riggers to set it up for each night, he said they were the equivalent of a huge giant traveling circus...:roll:

GrayGhost - 21-9-2022 at 23:55

Oh man, sounds excellent, I've been checking out the clips on youtube the show looks amazing.....

Every time I get to see Pink Floyd (whomevers version) I come away thinking
that's as good as it gets, next time you come away with a tan from the lighting,
and coincidentally Halley's comet is clearly visible glinting beside the stage,
they'll never top that.....Then there was The Wall, and not only but also
so close to Snowy White and his goldtop, well that's that then.....
Next time you're inside a hologram of the Battersea Power Station
having an out of body experience (I almost went for a drug test after that one).....

I've been informed by Eugene (international roadie of ill repute)
and usually 100% on concert info, that there are plans in the works
for an Australian or Australasian tour.....we can only hope.....

Plook - 22-9-2022 at 23:55

Gray, Kat read your post last night when she came over for the Petit Camel and she had moments of equally laughing and crying she loves you my friend from afar.

Now I have to go celebrate my Birthday ....:guitar::guitar2::drums::singer:

Plook - 23-9-2022 at 00:12

Kat refitted the Beach Bathroom with new towels, carpets, and Knick Knacks awesome…:cool:






The Daughter Plook the Younger (TDPTY) got me the California Jam concert newspaper add framed, she says I always talk about this concert…:guitar2:




This gift has already delivered raised eyebrows from more than one person just the sheer enormity of the acts that played gets people to say WOW! the common response, all the bands were at their peek...:wow:

If you look closely advance tickets were $10 such an outrageous sum at the time we nearly did not go, concert tickets at the time between $1.50 and $2.50…:lol:

Another gem is on the right bottom if you cut that little piece of paper put how many tickets you wanted and put it in an envelope they would send you tickets, it would not surprise me if that is how we purchased our tickets…:shocked:


Watch your local listings for more Plook on Tour…:singer:

GrayGhost - 28-9-2022 at 11:46

Eddie how are things going in your neck of the woods?

Plook - 25-10-2022 at 01:35

It’s a Monday Plook on Tour After School Special

The Big Shed Motif


I decided to take everything around the Pool down and try to get it in my shed behind the house which is the area where the pool pump and firewood is located that has become a catch all location…:wow:







My backyard shed was a mess it is probably at least 30 years old and from what I could tell the wood floor had been repaired/patched a couple of times. I started cleaning it out I ended up tearing out the floor and the decades of crap under it from it once being a rat’s home, I got 3/4 a big yard waste can of crap out of there before it was clean (approximately 3 or 4 wheel barrels full) and a small pile for the dump left over…:shocked:





All my reclaimed wood I saved…:grin:




Then I tooled up and built a new floor in the shed, no recuts I still have the right stuff for framing…:bouncy:











I cleaned up the whole area…:roll:






Minnie did a full inspection…:lol:






I cleared off the deck…:bouncing:






And got everything inside with room to spare…:cool:










It was really hot when I did it and I was sweating my ass off (literally), Kat thought I was going to keel over but I survived a little soar for a couple days but hey what the heck…;)



Stay tuned for our next Episode of Plook on Tour...cleaning toilets...:D

Hi Plook, a bit wet here but doing fine.

Good work on the clean up :cool:

Plook - 26-10-2022 at 00:56

Eddie if I remember correctly you are Down Under and in spring headed towards summer, that's good news for you!

We are feeling Fall here in NorCal and the days are growing shorter and cooler...I'm a summer guy but we need a lot of snow and rain this year due to the drought, keeping my fingers crossed.

Plook - 27-10-2022 at 00:54

Well it has been a slow moving week at Plook Palace, but we made it to the hump, now I need to get my Fez on...:D

It's a Plook on Tour Public Announcement...:singer:







Tonight H-Dog and I are going to the Hard Rock Casino to see...:drums:










We will be getting Close to the Edge, so I will report back later...;)

GrayGhost - 28-10-2022 at 06:49

That sounds exciting.....Enjoy!.....

Plook - 28-10-2022 at 18:30

Nice to see you Gray, this show was amazing they stayed clear of most of the popular hits and played very complex songs at a level that really impressed me, Steve Howe was incredible and the band was brilliant.


H-Dog who was no huge YES fan was completely amazed and enjoyed it immensely and said some songs had a Frank Zappa-esq feel!


The show was just under 3 hours with about a 20-minute break. Some songs meander for well over 10 minutes with the full Prog on display including rock, jazz, blues, heavy metal, country, rockabilly, and surf guitar weaved in.


It reminded me of King Crimson to be honest, just top shelf.


Here is the set list


Set 1:


On the Silent Wings of Freedom

Yours Is No Disgrace

No Opportunity Necessary, No Experience Needed
(Richie Havens cover)

Wonderous Stories

The Ice Bridge

Dare to Know

Heart of the Sunrise

Set 2 (Close to the Edge):

Close to the Edge

And You and I

Siberian Khatru


Encore:

Roundabout

Starship Trooper


More to come...:grin:

Plook - 29-10-2022 at 01:35

It's Friday but Kat isn't feeling wonderful she is stuffed up like allergies plus October is notorious rice farmers burning and farmers burning tree trimmings which can be a large fire when you have 100 acres of rice fields or 40 acres of almond tree's or some such...:wow:









So we will keep the ship in the Harbor at anchor tonight...:umm:






:)

Plook - 3-11-2022 at 01:56

It's a lay low Hump Day...:grin:







Kat's feeling better but her daughter-in-law has COVID and I'm getting a full back MRI tomorrow from my neck down...:wow:

GrayGhost - 3-11-2022 at 09:57

Best wishes and good luck to one and all.....

The Yes show sounded amazing, there's nothing quite like really good musicians live.....

I'm gutted that we didn't make George Thorogood, it was health
over (shot term) happiness, Covid case numbers had been surging in
the central city all week, so we stayed home, and listened to the CD.....

One of the reclusive old boys up the coast is slowly recovering from the new improved long Covid,
he went from Mister boundless-energy to Mister bed-ridden.....

The little woman in conjunction with one of the coastal cavettes
have assumed chicken soup control, he's lived alone for twenty plus years,
if the Covid doesn't get him this intense burst of extended feminine contact just might,
that coastal cavette's a clingy one too, so there could be matchmaking going on.....

On the plus side, the little woman needs the distraction right now,
it was a year yesterday that dear Cookie left us, about now it feels like it was yesterday.....

Plook - 4-11-2022 at 00:30

Gray my friend thank you for posting an update on the going on's way out in the valley...To bad you didn't get to make it to the concert I am sure he destroyed it, but better safe than sorry!

It is both sad and amazing (how quick time pass's) that it has been a year since your dear Cookie passed, she, you and the little woman are in my thoughts.

It sounds like the long time reclusive is getting a heavy dose of Womanization and with a possibility of romance in the air, it doesn't get better than that.

Hopefully with summer on its way the old boy has a great bounce back to his boundless energy self and hooked -up if the coastal cavette plays her soup right.


Please post again soon and I am dying to hear what you are spinning on the old kerosene record player, keep the faith brother...:cool:

Plook - 5-11-2022 at 01:38

It's Friday Night and everyone is feeling like they are in Ship Shape...;)

Plook - 11-11-2022 at 01:08

Sorry for the long absence, we hit a bit of a rough patch her in Plooksville…Monday was the 6 years ago that Kats husband Terry passed away, while a tough day for Kat she is strong and endures like a trooper.


Unfortunately her daughter (My so-called adopted daughter TADP because she stayed with Terri and I almost nonstop for two years) her good friend from childhood committed suicide. Kat new this girl well and she was in and around her house and family for 30 years so hit her hard.


The poor thing slipped down a bad road years ago and could not find her way back. TADP tried with all her heart to help her but when people get on bad drugs (meth) sometimes you have to use caution because they get very unpredictable.


TADP had contacted my youngest daughter TDPTY about a week or so ago and had consulted with her because she was being contacted by CCPS (California Child Protective Services) my daughter worked there over two years and told her they were most likely going to take the children (7&15 years old) into custody because she tested dirty twice in a row.


They came and got the kids last Friday, apparently she went to her boyfriends Sunday night went in his room barricaded the door. When the boyfriend could not get in, he called the Police and they broke down the door where they found she hung herself.


Kat, TADP, and TDPTY found out Monday it was a tuff pill to swallow on a day of mourning, the grand kids took it hard also.


We are hanging in there and going to a function at the lake where we will be setting off Candle Lanterns floating on the water. I did not know the girl that well but had seen her at many functions over the years, I am circling the wagons for Kat and the girls.


Talk to you all soon…:(





BBP - 11-11-2022 at 18:21

Very sorry to hear that, those poor children having to endure all that...

Eddie RUKidding - 11-11-2022 at 22:59

Plook - 8-12-2022 at 04:09

Thank you all and you should book your flights soon...:grin:


In other news Kat relapsed from whatever she has and it is not COVID, here in the US we have a weird outbreak of the flu, a relentless cold, RSP in kids, and some COVID cocktail going around it is pretty bad my younger daughter the teacher is ill also but she works in a kid petri dish...some speculation that the long lockdown caused us to miss two flu seasons of immunity which sounds logical but will my never know the long reaching effects of the Pandemic...:puzzled:

BBP - 8-12-2022 at 11:55

Congratulations Plook!

polydigm - 8-12-2022 at 21:02

Congratulations indeed!!

We had a really bad cold going around here a couple of months ago. My wife and I caught it at the same time. It was relentless and lasted a couple of weeks. We’d both had flu vaccinations previously.

Plook - 9-12-2022 at 02:12

Thanks Bonny and Poly, book your flights...:grin:


Poly this Hybrid cough & cold/Flu is hitting hard everywhere in the US several people from all over the the country I work with have had it for weeks.


My daughter in Rhode Island had it and finally licked the relentless cough, her baby girl (preschooler) had COVID then the Flu (The strain she had is associated with RSP another possible byproduct of the Pandemic that is hitting young children hard in the US and far to many deaths have occurred) she needed a chest x-ray that showed inflammation, she is finally coming around but it was surprising because she is hearty stock and very resilient for being that ill that long...not good.


My sister in the mid-west had it (cough lasted 2 weeks), Kats daughters family have all been in various phases of sickness, Kat herself had it for a week got better then relapsed Sunday and just went back to work today.


We probably hit the JFHBW to soon...:lol:

Eddie RUKidding - 9-12-2022 at 08:46

wife and I also have just has the hybrid cough & cold/Flu is nasty and has taken a week or so it get over, tested negative to Covid which we have not had yet - touch wood :duh:

It’s the Plook on Tour Year End Clean-UP


It’s the Long-Awaited Rodger Waters/Pink Floyd Concert Recap…:singer:


We met H-Dog and E at the Green Motel near the Venue…:grin:



We tailgated in the Sacramento Old Town parking lot…:roll:




We found an awesome Mexican Restaurant in Old Town to eat at… :)




But I got the food picture a little late…:yawn:




When walking through the tunnel to the K-Street Mall where the Venue is I ran across some skateboarders and barrowed a skateboard and pulled off a nice ride on it without crashing and breaking anything, they told Kat when I was riding it “that is totally old school” and when I finished they one by one all 4 fist bumped me and said “That was awesome Sir” it was hella cool beans…Unfortunately my picture came out like this, but E recorded it and if I get the video I will post it…:cool:





We stopped at a Micro Brew where I drank straight out of the Keg…:shocked:




The lines were packed so we hit the outside bar, I gave the Bar Tender a fat tip and she asked if I smoked pot then gave me a bag that someone gave her as a tip, the green way is all in in California…:bouncing:







The Troup is primed and ready…:drums:




The lines never let up so we waited until the last minute to enter in this picture you can see the steps leading out of the elevated bar we had planned out and executed our maneuver by going down those steps making a quick left and getting into a center line there that most people did not realize was available and got in in less than 5 minutes…:rolleyes:




We had really good seats…:bouncy:




The show was great…:guitar2:









They ended with Sheep before the intermission




Kat found her new love in the lobby during the break…:lol:





The second set started with the Pig…:guitar2:









The Big Finish…:guitar:





There was a guy playing the blues on a strat in the tunnel on the way back while another guy filmed and it sound great, Kat gave him a nice donation…;)




FIN


Stay Tuned for more Plook on Tour Clean-Up…:duh:


Plook - 22-12-2022 at 00:53

What Day Is It...:puzzled:






Kat has to go to work early and I have to drive to the East Bay so the Camel sleeps tonight...;)

Plook - 22-12-2022 at 00:57

Were you aware of the huge range of Kevlar fashion accessories

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Team Plook.....

Plook - 7-1-2023 at 02:30

Happy New Year Mr.Ghost, the Little Lady, and all my forum friends we tried to post live last week and I accidently deleted it after about 20 minutes of work so we threw in the proverbial towel.



We had a very active Holiday Season at Plook Palace...Kat survived the bank robbery but the other gal was pretty shook up, good thing he didn't go to Kats window she would have introduced him to her little friend (Colt 45)...:shocked:




We had Christmas Eve dinner at the Palace The Daughter Plook the Younger made homemade spaghetti so good, then we circled back Christmas Day and I made a Prime Rib Roast with home made mashed potatoes, and my famous green beans with the a big Caesar Salad deluxe...:grin:



Then we had a New Years Eve party with H-Dog & E and R&J, I made home made chili from scratch using the left over Rib Roast and some Italian appetizers Kat made bacon wrapped liver with water chestnut and a cheese ball both delicious, E made Bacon wrapped dates a flavor explosion, R&J brought some banging meatballs and we had other assorted snacks...:)




NYE day I was cooking all day and running around town nonstop I felt like Ray Liotta in Good Fellows minus the pound of cocaine...:lol:



I thought the whole thing would wrap-up by midnight and I would be golfing at 8 am but we danced until 3:30 am...:shocked:


We ended up cleaning up and did not get to bed until 4 am, so no golf and it has been raining nonstop here for two weeks...:freak:



Well I will post pictures hopefully tomorrow and Kat & I will try to go Pirate Live tonight if we can get our Jib Sail set and keep an even Keel...:bouncy:

Plook - 7-1-2023 at 05:44

Well, it’s Friday Night Jellyfish Honey Badger Wrestling 2023 Addition…

It’s a Plook on Tour Miniseries...:drums:

The Bomb Cyclone San Francisco Egyptian Strut Adventure

Episode 1 – The Drive

Over the last 3 weeks we have received 500% of a normal year’s rainfall…:guitar2:

We left Plook Palace in a torrential rain storm after a short time it let up but the wet and wild adventure was just starting for the Rocking Teenage Combo...:biggrin:




On Hwy 113 when we reached the Sutter Bypass which is normally used as farm land at 15 miles long and almost a mile wide with about a 20 foot depth it is the overflow for the Sacramento River…




It was almost full…:shocked:






When we reached Berkley things were getting better…:grin:





The Bay Bridge Toll was unusually empty for 20 lanes…:wow:





The 10-lane bridge goes from the new side by side portion to a stacked bridge and is almost 5 miles long…:yawn:








The Streets of San Francisco were typically crowded…:freak:






We arrived at the massive Golden Gate Park where the De Young Museum is along with the Academy of Science and many other Facilities…:bouncy:







Awesome trees in the park…:cool:





We enter the concourse...





The gals got a photo op at the fountain (E & Kat)…:)





The Academy of Science building has a garden roof with grass…:-*





Eyes without a face…:kiss:

I know the hip is bad news from my past experiences, so praise the lord and lets try to have some fun...:)

Plook - 27-1-2023 at 17:20

Now let’s return to the Plook on Tour Miniseries

The Bomb Cyclone San Francisco Egyptian Strut Adventure

Episode 2 – The Tour

The museum was bustling…:bouncy:




The Security Guard wasn’t playing but we made it through, not everyone was so lucky…:wow:




We entered through the eye…:cool:





We were transported to 1279 b.c.






We were greeted by a Stela that told the whole story and even still has part of its gold cap




Ramses cut in diorite we took it for granite…:lol:





Ramses ruled from 31 to his death at 91 he was a Warrior King who fought campaigns against Libya, Nubians, Sherden Sea Pirates (That became his personal guard after their defeat), and the Hittites who were his enemy during his Syrian campaign that resulted in the Battle of Kadesh the most well recorded battle in ancient history.

Ramses was a trained fighter and lead his troops from the front a skilled Charioteer, Archer, and trained in all forms of fighting he fought side by side with is army who were ambushed by the Hittites but he rallied his troops and drove them into Orontes River, he later signed the first known Peace Treaty with them that all other Peace Treaties were based on (Kathy was struck by the unusual looking horse Bit she has rode her whole life and rode competitively)





When you go before the King you get low to the ground…:freak:





The wooden box with holes was for burning incense…:kiss:





One of my favorite displays would show a ruin and what it looked like at the time Ramses built it, they know from paint flakes that everything was painted and this is what they concluded…:drums:











I did not get the before picture for this one but it was too awesome to leave out…:guitar2:





Sennedjem was a Priest who oversaw the painting of the outer wooden caskets and inside of tombs with their magic spells and text while they do not have Ramses which he surely oversaw, but they do have Sennedjem’s which would have been painted by his highest skilled apprentices.





Granit Ramses bust and coffin lid







The carved alabaster caught my eye the craftmanship is amazing working with such a difficult medium…:guitar:







Other stuff of interest…:roll:













The last thing I will bore you with are the mummified cats, apparently you would offer these at the temple to the gods similar to how western religions light candles they pay for at church. Now this went on for over 1000 years and everyone did it, they have found tons of mummified cats, some even got highly decorated coffins, my mind wonders to the inevitable cat farms at the temple ran by the priest as a cottage industry…:shocked:

A new Episodes of Plook on Tour Miniseries drops now…

The Bomb Cyclone San Francisco Egyptian Strut Adventure

Episode 3 – The Dinner

Our storm traveler museum going quorum is famished from their adventure but a couple of drinks are in order and our cheer “Earth, Sky, Ocean!”…:drums:





We decided to take a Lyft to Scoma’s on the wharf because it began to rain…:)




The Story of Scoma’s

In 1965 when brothers Al and Joe Scoma heard about a small coffee shop on the Wharf that was for sale, little did they know they were on the road to creating a landmark restaurant. The brothers bought the tiny, six-stool coffee shop on Pier 47 that served local fishermen breakfast and burgers and began the long and ultimately successful process of turning the hidden local hang-out into one of the nation’s highest grossing independent restaurants.


The Doorman greeted us…




The Crew is ready to board…:guitar:




More drinks…:guitar2:





I had the classic Dirty Martini (so perfect) Kat had an Expresso Martini…





H-Dog went with the Expresso Martini and E had a Blood Orange Margarita…









The appetizers were Oysters, Calamari, & Crab Cakes…







The Entrées were Gulf Shrimp Lumachini and “Lazy Man’s” Cioppino…





H-Dog ordering desert…:biggrin:





The battle begins…:singer:





4-way split…:bouncing:





The gal’s saying adios to our wonderful waiter…:kiss:





Ready to board…:grin:





Heading back down the pier…:bouncing:






These gals got a sheet in the wind…:shocked:





Under the street light…:yawn:




Leaving Scoma’s Pier…:roll:





The street lights at night…:wow:





The World-Famous Pier 39…:)





The Love Bug…:cool:
