    It's Yet Another Radiobarry MiceChat Anniversary Meet Trip Report: Right As Rain!

    It was a question thoughtfully pondered for days, and then through the final hours, before the final decision was made.

    Would Radiobarry, that intrepid Occasional MiceChat Trip Reporter, be willing to brave the wilds of the promised Sunday monsoon, to indeed keep his attendance string alive...all three MiceChat Anniversary meets!

    As a nervous MiceChat nation pondered the possibilities late Saturday night, it was finally decided.

    He would do the right thing. The honorable thing. The wise thing.

    He stayed home.

    Thank you very much, ladies and gentlemen and we hope you enjoyed this Trip Report.

    Waiiiit a minute. You might have seen my picture Photoshopped in quite cleverly by other MiceChatters to make it look like I was there.

    Some tall guy with gray hair, slumped over in a scooter chair, scowling like a villain in a "B" movie.

    That's not me. I'm 6'3", 180, rock hard abs, y'know, like one of those canoe rats that Pratt 55 posed with.

    So, you can take me at my word. I stayed home. But if I, indeed, was that guy (which I wasn't)...it might have looked something like...the thing that's coming up...
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    I believe you Barry. I didn't see you at all Sunday.

    Re: It's Yet Another Radiobarry MiceChat Anniversary Meet Trip Report: Right As Rain!

    He drove down that early Sunday morning, that old guy posing as Radiobarry, in search of...the rain. In search of MiceChat, and the meaning of life.

    He turned into his parking space on the Daisy level of the parking structure he loves, at about 9AM.

    Moments later, he is greeted by this sight...



    Why, it's the lovely IndianaJenn and friend...MiceChatters already sharing a seat on an early morning Tram. This figured to be a most interesting day.

    Glad to see you made it, she said. Wild horses couldn't have kept me away, I said....



    Come here often, I asked? Nah, she said...I'm in town for the convention...Mainly, I'm just came down here for the Gumballs, she said.

    Yes, I'd heard about the big game the day before, and how the Gumballs Rallied to win the big one.

    So IndianaJenn said, I must leave you now...good luck on your search for the meaning of MiceChat, and for one honest man (whichever comes first).

    Bidding adieu, I, err, my alter ego, knew I would not be alone for long. On this particular day I knew it would be harder to escape MiceChat than to find it.

    My first clue...head for the Magnolia Gardens, and look for the first classy and beautiful lady I could find.

    Bingo!



    She smelled of lilacs, and reminded me of penguins drinking sodas. Jody was her name. While she could not help in my search for an honest man, she, and the lovely PurpleDove, helped me discover their true meaning of life...



    To have Johnny Depp on one side...



    And Orlando on the other, her own very personal Disney World! PurpleDove, a lady of great courage, joy and, as it turned out, Astro blasting.

    Of course, this was all very much like a dream for the alter ego RadioBarry...and as if coming out of the dream...his friend from Arizona...the lady who "flashed" and flailed with the canoe rats...one "Prat55"...



    So, was this really all a dream, on an altogther cool, sometimes damp, but nowhere near monsoon Anniversary day?

    OK. Hooked. Waiting.

    PS ... thanks for picking up the name tags for my brother and me. That was very nice of you. Sorry I didn't get to see you, but some other meet somewhere in time.

    Re: It's Yet Another Radiobarry MiceChat Anniversary Meet Trip Report: Right As Rain!

    As I sat home and stirred giant pots of soup and darned socks and kept the wolf at the door for my night shift working, slumbering wife...the other guy there in my place knew it would be a day ripe with Adventure...



    A good thing, this threat of rain, he thought. Only sparse crowds to hamper his search for MiceChat meaning.

    He wandered (rolled, actually in that scooter HE needed) about from one to the other, asking about the meaning of MiceChat life...

    These two laughed and said...do you think WE have the answer?



    You may have heard of the Emmys, they said. Well, we are...the Ellys! But we know not the meaning of MiceChat life.

    So during the morning hours, the answers seemed as scarce for my balding, hunchback friend as did the promised raindrops.

    So he contacted another Arizona friend, "IndianaTim" Jones, to escort him on a train trip to take him to the sacred truth.



    First, he said, we have two problems.

    The train we are on...goes around in a circle. It's been going around basically the same circl, for more than 50 years.

    Second, he said, Pratt and I stopped off here because we heard that there's big doings for a football game in Glendale next week. Only now we find out it's back home in Glendale, Arizona!

    Now he tells me, I thought.

    So I search the remainder of the car for answers. There are MiceChatters on every car of this train, I am told.



    I, err. my woebegotten friend, searched Fishbulb's eyes for answers. Instead, there were only more questions to be pondered like...who made this delicious sugar-free lemon cookie I'm told a woman named TikiRoomLiz had smuggled on board...



    I had the answer to the lemon cookie question. I even probed the mind of a really cool engineer CM named Jim...



    And while he had all the information I could ever want about the steam train they were riding, the answers to my, umm, friend's questions might just as well be at the bottonm of the Grand Canyon diorama, as far as he was concerned.

    Re: It's Yet Another Radiobarry MiceChat Anniversary Meet Trip Report: Right As Rain!

    As the noon hour approached, I stayed home and prepared to watch the Laker game, while darning socks and washing clothes brought in from down by the now raging creek, my hands bloodied from the washboard.

    As for my friend, the hunched over Dr. Evil wannabe you may have seen last Sunday at Disneyland, his thirst fo knowledge was surpassed only by his hunger for the truth.



    He sought out the advice of the man the call Darkbeer, who said he found his truth at the end of a camera lens...click, shutter, flash.



    So, it was time to scour the Rivers of America, if need be, to find the golden key in the search for the meaning of MiceChat life.

    He thought for an instant, that he'd seen it in the joyous (if rather colorless and grainy) expression of superstacie and her friends of the upper deck class...



    But alas, her look was meant for another searcher of the truth. He determinedly pressed on...seeking the wise counsel (among other things) of the lovely lasses he shared a cruise with...



    He's really not me, ya know. Remember? I'm 6'3", 180, rock hard abs... look like a cross between Chuck Norris and Dr. McDreamy...

    His mind drifts into a tune from the "Great American Songbook"...

    "Hello, young lovers, wherever you are...NNL and YoYoF..."



    Alas, they were too caught up in the tides of their own sea of love to have any answers for an aging seafarer...

    But aha, he thought - the always beautiful and so very friendly (She's So) Snow White Raven must have an answer....



    If she did, my friend said he was just much too blinded by her engaging presence, to ferret it out.

    And so he rolled around and around this huge tribal gathering, this "mega-noon' meet, continuing his search.

    Bet she knows...



    But she wasn't telling, either.

    TO BE CONTINUED...check local listings for time and station in your area...batteries not included...some restrictions apply...

    Love your TR's Barry! Can't wait for the next part!

    and the stars come out,
    I'll look up on her behalf.
    I'll look up in the sky and think of you."

    Great TR Barry, sorry we didn't have the opportunity to see you on Sunday. We took off early partly because of the rain and because our little ones had school on Monday and we had to make it back to Phoenix.
    Stalking is when two people go for a long romantic walk together but only one of them knows about it.
