Somebody pass the sunscreen. Smish becomes practically vampiric in the winter.

Wow, my first Dirigible trip; I have always wanted to fly in a blimp (when I was a kid one of my babysitter's boyfriends was on the ground crew for the Goodyear blimp and I always hoped if I was good enough she'd take me for a ride).

Anyway, I'm bringing peanut butter cookies and Mai Tai's--I think Mai Tai's are more of a Pacific island thing, but I doubt anyone will complain and my culinary are limited to some basic baking and advanced mixology.

Thanks for the trip!!!

well, I must forego the sun, so bring me a huge beach umbrella.

I'm bringing Nanaimo bars - just discovered these little jewels, and though I've never tasted one yet, they look and sound scrumptious.

Thanks for the ride, Timp. Looks tantalizing, and since it's dark and snowy here, I'm ready for a warm, sun-kissed breeze.

Hey Timp! Just read your anthology story, From Antardigus-7, in the Absolute Visions Anthology. It's hilarious! Quick, fix the rift before more butterflies escape!

Tea and honey is being served in the veranda. The heater's turned up and Bach is on the headphones.

Let's start with a Sunday brunch out on the veranda. (dirigibles do have verandas, right?)

I don't know about you guys, but I've been hankering for some grassy fun. Let's go barefoot and roll and run around and then head into town for a lovely bite at the local eatery.



And of course there's a verandah, Judy! Here's a partial view. There are comfy couches just out of sight.

That is the perfect veranda.

Oh, no! While we've all been rolling around in the grass, the dirigible has disappeared!

Someone has stolen it.

Good thing we've got you on the case! Do you have any suspects? What about clues? We must find the dirigible! Timp just added that amazing veranda! Oh, the humanity!

Oh, no! You were hit by the avatar bandit!

I haven't seen MsJudy in awhile. And she certainly has motive. I mean, she never wants to share the milkshakes and brownies. She's the #1 suspect.

Yeah, but MsJudy's avatar is missing, too. I wonder if the person who still has an avatar could be our culprit. Even if she looks like she is searching for clues...
