  1. You use your prescription goggles to watch TV. (lost a contact lens) ~AirAnn~
  2. I agree with all said here. I certainly didn't jump on purpose 'into rain'. The rain was about 300-400 feet later. Wasn't my fault. I couldn't very well hear/comprehend 'pilot said cloud' next to an open door. I figured that meant hurry up? One dude jumped, then I am in the door. Then my best buddies started yelling GO or was it NO? Oh well, I was good for about 400 feet. Suddenly my butt started stinging pretty bad. I went flat and then my face caught hell. I covered my face for a second, but a skydiving bad idea. So, there I was getting a 120mph facial. So long ago & and that jump is still painful. I finally a good landing and not one person saw it. AND..., After all that - Where was all the beer? A full load (less 2 idiots) landing still inside a jump plane??? Not one beer? - Gimme a break. ~AirAnn~
  3. Although it's difficult today to see beyond the sorrow, May looking back in memory help comfort you tomorrow. ~Author Unknown I send my heartfelt condolences to the grieving families. I also extend my deepest sympathy to all friends in the skydiving community. AirAnn (I transfered my Bonfire post) ~AirAnn~

  5. No worries, you can still look at a 12-way the same again… just add 28 to 41 people. So, five 40+ ways & three 53-way attempts? From 12,500 breaking at 6? About how great is that, I wonder. It’s so far out of my reality that I can’t even form a daydream out of it. You done good, kiddo and I sure am proud of you. I suppose your jumps must have been beyond incredibly awesome? Well, I will hear all about Band Camp when you get back home. Lucky for you Sci-Fi is all reruns so the big screen is mostly all yours. Please return yourself undamaged and take the shorter route this time. I don’t want to go all CSI again if you pass up another ETA. ~AirAnn~
  6. Quite a few foreigners in here... Daniel -Skydive Monroe, Georgia ??? (Sea & Sky) ?? New Orleans A really nice guy that I was glad to meet, btw. Edit to add- Somebody must have done a #1 as Tami has a green beer. ~AirAnn~
  7. “Each day in my house with only my dogs.. …and no real noticeable improvement?” Yikes Dude, you need professional help right away. These critters should be doing brain surgery by now. Try teaching them a different trick as dogs get bored too. Pieces of hot dogs will spark new interest in trick completion & will give you the ‘noticeable improvement’ you desire. Only train for their attention span which is 15 minutes. Dogs can hear real well, so you don’t have to yell. Hand signals are way cooler anyway. My suggestion - Get an old remote and teach ‘em how to locate it. You can disguise it tied to a toy at first then later delete toy. Have them cut away asap as batteries taste icky and have no nutritional value. Your hand signal for this could be the raised middle finger of your hand. Just my $1.25 worth (house call trainers charge $75 an hour) Ha Ha Ha ps. When I was broken I taught Flea how to 'track' across the carpet. ~AirAnn~
  8. If Santa Ana did go around the Alamo, the people of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, California, Utah, and parts of Colorado, Wyoming, Kansas and Oklahoma would know a lot more words in Spanish. (Nearly 1/3 of the USA.) They say that if Santa Ana had not been delayed at The Alamo; then we would not have been ready nor nearly as pissed off at San Jacinto. You see, Santa Ana's Army comes waltzing in all puffed up about our butt whoopin at Alamo and 750 Texans were mad as hell & waiting on his happy ass. It didnt hurt that they got drunk and went to sleep either. Anyway, we came down on 1500 of their army and we won. When Sam Houston gave the order to Fire! at San Jacinto; in place of Charge! the Texas troops yelled -Remember the Alamo! Mutha F..kers!!!! New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, California, Utah, and parts of Colorado, Wyoming, Kansas and Oklahoma, or 1/3 of the USA, -You're Welcome. The Score: TEXAS- Gen. Sam Houston - shot in the ankle, 7 dead Texas heros MEXICO- 600+ dead, 700+ allowed to surrender Santa Ana was found the next day hiding in tall grass dressed as a common foot soldier. They should make a sequel. Hey Ya'll - Texas rulz! ~AirAnn~
  9. Oh, ...you will (hopefully) need a bigger gourd. 1-2 feet in length? - Some 3-4 inchs in diameter? Ok ... Luffa cylindrica No worries, I have seeds. ~AirAnn~
  10. This year I am doing gourd vines. Last year I did real well with vegetable loofa sponges. Those again this year as well as birdhouse gourds. I was looking into defining a gourd that is Asian in variety. ... yada, yada yada... So I am checking out gourds and I find interesting historical data. Such as... Can Gourds Be Used For National Currency? A Seed That Inspired Early Aircraft Design. But what frightened me was.... See A Penis Sheath Gourd From New Guinea This has got to be the most disturbing National Geographic like photo I have ever seen. And, what is 'up' with those guys facial expresions & what are they looking at? Im off to plant CANTALOUPE. ... Huh, can those be used as breast coverings? Well... You can eat them... My mind is now ruined, ruined, ruined... ~AirAnn~
  11. It is a very special day here also- Flea (pictured) is 3 years old. HAPPY BIRTHDAY- 2 U! HAPPY BIRTHDAY- 2 Fleadom! HAPPY BIRTHDAY- 2U & Fleadom HAPPY BIRTHDAY- 2 everybody ~AirAnn~
  12. Viking- Don't show this to anyone. Thanks ~Air ~AirAnn~
  13. Happy B-Day to U!! Beware of the Kiwi Lesbian. ~AirAnn~
  14. About KrisFlyZ's question on plane name- Steve dissed me on the 1st plane name in '01. I told him 100x it was my personal plane and therefore should be appropriately named "AirAnn". (Lordie, I was such a DZ Princess.) One more chance to name it right! ...this time I am thinking ConAir. That Conway is/has always been a good egg. Name this one after him. Ill step aside & catch the next one. Also, ConAir is very appropriate. BWaH! ...just kidding ppl.. ~AirAnn~
