Castaway!

Captain'f log, June 11th,

After running out of jokes and storief about the dark continent, and refufing to dreff appopriately for the Outback Hoe Down Lady Blog and I were forced to walk the plank in Tonga and were caftaway from the MV Paficific Dawn.

Although chriftened the 'friendly ifles' by Captain Cook, the good people of thif island nation alfo have a penchant for cooking hapleff castaways, according to Mr Grant Hyde Efq in hif excellent book, Lordf of the Pacific.

Today we learned that we were, in fact, marooned in Nukualofa af our flight home, on Pacific Blue, was cancelled. We currently await our fate in an encampment near the airport.

At thif moment the only thing going according to plan if the free wireleff internet acceff. Lady Blog'f complementary meal just arrvied stone cold. A cannibal'f cooking fire would not go astray right now - at leaft we would get a hot meal.

The drumf, Legion of Fanf, the drumf...

The nativef are getting restleff.

There are worfe placef to be shipwrecked, LOF, but I can alfo think of fome better onef.

Trin you're right, it is really cold here! I think we are all a bit jealous of you being stuck on a island in the pacific - enjoy it while you can.

Are you sure it's drums you are hearing and not your knees knocking for fear of the cooking pots?
I would say that sucks but with the lisp it would come out wrong.

Very good Les - both points

Well said Les.

Tony, things could be worse. Just imagine, you could be in a sinking boat surrounded by sharks - how would you survive that ???
