Where's Joe?


My apologies to anyone wondering where I’ve been.
No … I'm not in the hospital with more broken ribs!
No … The wife hasn’t thrown me out.
No … I’m not locked in a shrimp truck or stuck in my closet.

I am far, far away … living on a beach.
I wish you were all here.
I’ll be out of the country until after Valentines Day.
I promise to catch up with all of you soon after my return.

Guess where I am.
If you’re correct … I’m firing our travel agent.

Megan said...

I give up.

just bob said...

I figured you (wearing your hoodie and beret) and the missus were at Dunkin' Donuts enjoying a cruller and a large with extra/extra.

Malach the Merciless said...

The Mountains bordering Pakistan and Afghanistan, your travel agent told me.

scarlet-blue said...

Blackpool?
Sx

KaraBeagle said...

I was goona guess Coney Island, far, far away living on a beach...but last time I looked, that wasn't out of the country. Are you warm at least?

KaraBeagle said...

This IS the time of year to go to Cabo...you having dental work done?

nursemyra said...

I know you're not in australia.....

Leah said...

I think I saw you in the corner bar in Brooklyn?

Frogs in my formula said...

Did you come to Mulletville again and not tell me? You rascal!

Dan O. said...

Well, the farthest beach I ever set foot on was in Torremolinos, Spain, so that's my guess where you are.

That or Club Gitmo.

Mike said...

This time of year you'd better be in the Caribbean somewhere. Damn, now I wish I was on the beach...

SSC~ The Domestic Diva said...

Have fun!!! Are you bringing back gifts for us?

Bogart in P Towne said...

I hear the beaches of Sierra Leone are nice this time of year...just watch out for Pirates.

Queen Goob said...

Prince Edward Island? In your wool socks and long underwear? Yeah, practically tropical!

Mr. Tent Trash said...

Are you at the neverland ranch?

moooooog35 said...

What's that a picture of?

A giant, robotic vulva?

Given today's economy, I wouldn't want to deprive your travel agent of a client, but if my obsessive NatGeo channel-watching is serving me correctly, you're in one of the richest countries in the world. Have a great vacation!!!

Heather said...

Joe, whenever you get back from that fabulous vaykay, check out the link to my new blog.

I've got it!! Bellevue!!! (I hear it's expensive, but at least you don't have to fly to get there.)

Your secret's safe with me...

just bob said...

Hey Joe... when you get back, stop by my blog to pick up an award.

Malicious Intent said...

I would prefer an iceberg to being home right now, but I hear icebergs are really rare these days and cost a fortune to vacation on.

Malicious Intent said...

Dude, when ya get back, I locked down my blog, so accept the invite if you want in to the madness.

Bee said...

You are house sitting for that rich dude in Australia?

VE said...

I know you're not there in Dubai. I was there and that is not built yet. Hope you went somewhere enjoyable instead...

Deb said...

My guess is Revere Beach, basking under the hazy contrails of jets on their final approach to Logan, watching the scantily clad "women" in their high heels strut by, picking up the flotsam and jetsam as the tide rolls in. Lucky dog.

kylie said...

it's way after valentines day joe......
i know australia is ahead of you guys but a week??

Megan said...

Seriously, don't you know we're in a recession here? You can't take vacations that last this long!!

Practically Joe said...

Thank you all so much for checking in on Practically Wisdom while I was away ... you've all been the trusted house sitters a neighbor would be most fortunate to have.
As you may already have learned … we went to Cancun, Mexico.

Ken: ”Some where over the rainbow sky's are blue”
Good guess … even the water was very blue.

Megan: ”I give up. See you when you get back!”
Can you see me now?

Just Bob: ”at Dunkin' Donuts enjoying a cruller and a large with extra/extra.”
Nope. I was at Coco Bongos having a drinkie/drinkie.

Malach: ”The Mountains bordering Pakistan and Afghanistan, your travel agent told me.”
I have to give my agent a raise. I told him you might be asking.

Scarlet: ”Blackpool?”
Does the sun even come out there?

KaraBeagle: ” I was gonna guess Coney Island, far, far away living on a beach...”
You know … It would have been the place to go … for hot-dogs.

NurseMyra: ” I know you're not in australia.....”
You didn’t read the instructions clearly, silly girl. You were supposed to guess where I was not where I wasn’t.

Leah: ” I think I saw you in the corner bar in Brooklyn?”
That’s not the first time you’ve thought you saw me in NY … Are you hinting you want me to visit?

Frog Mamma: ” Did you come to Mulletville again and not tell me? You rascal!”
I’m not sure … we may have flown over Mulletville … where is that again?

Dan O: ”Torremolinos, Spain … That or Club Gitmo”
Welcome Dan O … I put both on my list of next possible vacation spots.

Mike: ”This time of year you'd better be in the Caribbean somewhere..”
You are a most excellent guesser.

Diva: ”Are you bringing back gifts for us?”
Tequila for everyone! Sorry they confiscated all my tequila gifts at customs.

Bogart: ” I hear the beaches of Sierra Leone are nice this time of year...just watch out for Pirates.”
I felt safe in Mexico … There were plenty of local law enforcers with Uzis hanging about.

Queen Goob: ” Prince Edward Island? In your wool socks and long underwear?”
Nope! Wool sox and long underwear is what I wanted to get out of.

Mr. Tent Trash: ” Are you at the neverland ranch?”
Wow! Great to hear from you. But no … never the neverland. Especially not since I … well … no … never the neverland.

Moooooog35: "What's that a picture of? A giant, robotic vulva?"
Yes it is. Wanna come along the next time I go?

mumma boo: ”if my obsessive NatGeo channel-watching is serving me correctly, you're in one of the richest countries in the world.”
Sorry … I was throwing you off with that pic … stop watching NatGeo when you’re drunk.

Heather: ”whenever you get back from that fabulous vaykay, check out the link to my new blog..”
I did … and I love bacon!

MI: ”I would prefer an iceberg to being home right now,”
It sounds like I should have taken you along, MI.

Bee: ”You are house sitting for that rich dude in Australia?”
No … but he’s got the suite next to ours.

VE: ”I know you're not there in Dubai. I was there and that is not built yet.”
VE … You’ve almost been everywhere! If you haven’t yet made it to Salem, MA … I want you to come by and visit so I can buy you a beer. You nailed the pic!

Deb: ”My guess is Revere Beach, basking under the hazy contrails of jets on their final approach to Logan”
Okay Deb. Fess up. Are we neighbors?

Kylie: ”it's way after valentines day joe...... i know australia is ahead of you guys but a week??..”
Sorry Kylie … I just don’t want it to end … but now it’s back to reality.

Megan: ”Seriously, don't you know we're in a recession here? You can't take vacations that last this long!!”
Jeeeez! I’m back already! Happy now?
