The complete dysfunctional Plook Clan is meeting in LA for Mama Plooks ceremony next week, I have been working with Sister Plook on a Obituary, setting-up hall, food, and putting out loud Italian arguments that I know included plenty of hand gestures even though it was over the phone... :mrgreen:

ocevad we should have lunch or dinner one day if we can coordinate... :idea:

The level of arguing and dysfunctional in the Plook-o-sphere is hitting a Code Red, that means I need to be the rational one keeping the peace and not getting to do any of the arguing , bitching, and moaning...I never get to have fun... :evil:

Thank you Bonny, well the ceremony at the restaurant Saturday is turning into a huge neighborhood reunion, I grew up on a horseshoe with over 60 homes and a homestead farm (that is now over 30 3 bedroom condos), the children that ran together number over 40 and most family's stayed in the neighbor well into the kids late 20's and early 30's, several original family live there...we have had confirmation of 30 people coming and the word is still spreading to all points on the map.

Everyone loved and respected my mom and everyone hung out there, when she cooked her giant pot of spaghetti sauce for two days there would be a plate of bread next to it and if any kids smelled it they would walk in and dip some bread, we had many a block party at our house acting out famous songs (along came Jones comes to mind) and we would take turns being bands like the Beatles, CCR, The Rolling Stones, and an endless stream of 60's and early 70's hits as youth's, and 3 huge house party's when we were in high school (I'm am pretty sure some movie house party's were based on our events), we had bands and kegs and 200 to 300 hundred people (we had a huge extended group of friends).

One of my early skate and surf bro's called last night we hadn't talked since the mid 80's, we laughed and cried it was great, he said I always tell stories of stuff I did with you to people and they have trouble believing we did all that stuff, I told him it happens to all of us ...we were blessed in a special way in our upbringing...and the "Block Mom" had a lot to do with it... :D

Headed to LA this morning, the weather is going off this is going to be 450 miles of tough sledding...this would have rolled off my back 10 or even 5 years ago, but I'm no spring chicken anymore... :smoke:

We made it to LA some tough sledding in the rain this morning, we hit town later than expected and got to enjoy the full breadth & depth of the So Cal traffic seen...the Daughter Plook the Younger had to go to the ladys room so we got off the freeway at what turned out to be the nexus of hell, the I5 710 Atlantic Blvd triangle took 40 minutes to get back on the freeway...eating and headed to bed I'm cooked.

The Daughter Plook the Elder took a train from Providence to Boston jumped on a plane that was deiced and for some reason went for more fuel and had to be deiced again, by that time the pilots timed out went back to the gate got new pilots but oh noooo the radio was broken they headed back to the gate fixed radio finally got air borne...she first got on the plane at 2 am Pacific time , she landed at 9:30 pm Pacific time...17 and 1/2 hours of airports... :shock:

We had a wonderful Celebration for Mamma Plook Saturday which turned out to be a reunion of the old neighborhood and the Skater Surfers...the story's were flying and my daughters were blown away that all the Concert, Skateboard, and surfing tails were confirmed... :D

Some block moms showed up and many others we had 35 people plus the family, I got a bunch of stuff from my moms and found a couple of old photo albums, should supply some good laughs...my mom totally saved everything and my SUV was packed for the drive home... :arrow:

Made it home safe need to get caught up on work and sort through the endless boxes of stuff i brought home... :!:

So at my mom's celebration was one of my sisters good high school friends (I knew her since before high school), she showed up for a dinner the night before and my sister brought up that her and I had almost hooked up at my sisters first wedding in 1977 (it was huge we found all the stuff my mom saved), after the reception probably 50+ people showed up at my sisters house, I some how ended up in the spare room with the gal who had way much to drink and probably got obsessed with my Movie Star hair ( :mrgreen: ) so we made out but I just instinctively knew I shouldn't sleep with her due to her intoxication (which I didn't, I put her in the spare room bed and slept on the living room couch).

She didn't remember we all laughed great memories, it came up at the celebration Saturday and I was saying it was an honor for me at the time to have a hot chick approach me and she flipped out and said everyone had to stop talking about, I said no problem and walked away...but she apparently continued and made mention that I was "a real asshole" and that she didn't want to hear about it again...she didn't notice that the Daughter Plook the Younger heard until she got the look (My baby girl is more than amply equipped to deal with any social situation like her mamma..kick ass and take names later... :shock:), when she saw my daughter approach she grabbed her stuff and left without a good bye.

The Gal is a University Administrator and seemed a bit full of herself with a touch of that's lifestyle "holier than though attitude", I told my daughters and sister "could you imagine if I slept with her that night, she would be 'Me Too'-ing me about it"... :wink:
