Hello friends –
So what has the Cyber Kid and his faithful
monkey companion, Cheeky, been doing through the last quarter of
2008! Flying and traveling! Enjoying the fruits of labor –
literally! Having a multitude of layovers I’ve seen additional
destinations such as Malaga, Spain; Georgetown, Guyana; Buenos
Aires, Argentina; Edinburgh, Scotland and Moscow, Russia with repeat
visits to Rome, Italy; Madrid, Spain and London, England.
International travel continues to treat me well and on 12/28/2008 at
0517Z en-route from Buenos Aires at 36,000ft., I finished my
probationary requirements! Now I’m officially in “The Family.”
In addition to jet-setting around the globe, I
was able to get some time in early Nov. to hit Daytona Beach for a
little R&R and the annual ERAU/FUBAR Reunion. Good times had by
all, hanging out with FUBAR Hall of Famer Mark “Armadillo” and long
time FUBAR supporter Candy. Cheeky was even able to partake in the
festivities having promised to behave himself if allowed to go to
the infamous Ocean Deck with “the Kid!” Debauchery and Shenanigans
aside, the reunion, although quaint, was a success as Mark and I
once again discussed our plans for world domination.
and here's some additional pictures
from the weekend long festivities -

On a side note, everyone
thought is was quite amusing when yours truly, Darth M, decided that
the sour cream that came with the Nacho's (on Wed.) was too good to pass up
and so, provided everyone with a photo op. Well, a few
weeks later while visiting Gibraltar of all places, nature has a way
of mimicking real life, or vice versa - Enjoy (at my expense of
Anyway, other than
all my adventures - the Little Dude and Rabbit
have been quite busy as well!? Heading over to the UK in November with
Dawn; Alex and Jessica got 3 weeks of visiting with Grandma and
Granddad, Great Grandma and their Aunt, Uncle and cousins. Just
before the UK venture however, the little people were treated to a
trip to Sea World - Alex enjoyed feeding Dolphins with Mummy while
Jessica wanted no part of the freakishly large fish! The Cyber Kid
of course enjoyed the Anheuser Busch hospitality house for a
complimentary BEvERage or two!?...
The Little Dude continues to progress in karate
having achieved the levels of Orange belt and currently Green belt
(Look out kindergarten, there’s a new
sheriff in town!) Jessica Rabbit is fully
mobile now and walking all over the place, so it's really starting
to get hectic around the HQ!
The little people also enjoyed a festive
holiday season with the Little Dude getting a brand new “moto-bike”
and the Little Bean got a couple of babies and some ponies from
Santa who made a special delivery on Dec. 21st so that
Daddy could see them open their gifts! (He does that sort of thing
for parents who work out of town you know!?...)
Lots of good holiday cheer had among all!?
