    I don't know if anybody remembers the discussion a while back about Cranberry Island. It's a floating island of sphagnum. The only floating island in the world. It use to be 50 acres (I think). It has S.purpurea, D.rotundfolia, some rare orchids, ect.
    Once a year they open it up to the public. They let 480 people onto the island . To get on you have to send a post card and your post card has to be pulled in a drawing. One per family, up to four people.

    I have been wanting to go for a couple of years. So last month I send two post cards. I sent one with my address and one with Nick Hubbell's. Both asking for 4 tickets. I had planned that if I sent the two cards that we would have double the chance to be selected. And if we both were selected then we could invite four more people from here.

    Well Nick messaged me told me that somebody had canceled and his name was selected to as a backup. So we going to Cranberry Island on June 26th!! I was so excited.

    Then my wife reminded me that we have to go to a wedding on the 26th. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]

    I tried to convince my wife why this trip was more important than her nieces wedding. And to my surprise she didn't agree with me. I told her that she'll probably get married again one day and then we can go to that one.

    Well to make a long story short, I called Doug (Death66) and asked him if he wanted to go in my place. He jumped at the chance to go. He told me , "Thank you" and I said don't thank me I don't want to give my ticket.

    So here's my plan. All I have to do is to get either my wife's niece or her bf to call off the wedding. If I can do that, you can kiss this trip goodbye Doug.

    So far my only idea is to throw him a really wild bachelor party and take alot of pics. Then anonymously mail her the pics. Anybody got a better idea? I need all the help I can get.

    Better yet, find your wife a "date" to go with her to the wedding. She probably doesn't want to go alone. Maybe some ugly cousin will accompany her?

    Besides, do you even know your wife's sister's daughter and/or wife's sister's daughter's fiancee? Probably not if you said such things. Be nice, and offer your wife options. If that doesn't work, beg.

    I like the thinking though. You gotta do what you gotta do. The bachelor party is a good idea, take him to a strip club and take photos of lap dances. Maybe even "better" photos if the chance should arise.

    I tryed begging, It didn't work. Jim look up Cranberry Island and see for yourself. I also have Nick and Doug to back me upon this one.
    My wife told me I can go to the bog if I wanted. I'm sure that all the married men here knows what the correct answer to that is.

    Ozzy,
    The the correct answer is; "Darling I would really like to go to the bog but my place is with you at the wedding. It will be fun. We'll have a few drinks and I'll have a great time dancing with the new bride...she is a real cutie pie. Is
    that foxy Denise going to be one of the bridesmaids? You remember her, the one I used to date in highschool."

    Then cap it off with; "I'll try very hard not to insult any of your family...unless of course I get started on the Wild Turkey. Maybe I could even tell some of my jokes to liven things up."

    Dude, you will be on your way to Cranberry Island in no time.

    Lauderdale, Your suggestions are not really far from the truth. I'm not one to hold my tongue, but I have to bite it with my wife's sister, (the brides mom). If there's' alcohol, It's almost impossible.
    But I tried your suggestion almost word for word and it didn't work out the way I had hoped. I just hope this black eye heals before next weekend, that'll be embarrassing.

    Hmmm...wedding...bog....wedding...bog... I say BOG! Can't your wife get a body double to go?

    How can a few hours at a wedding compare to a waiting years to go to this bog where only a handful of people get to go every year. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img] I say do some more begging...offer a trade--cooking dinner every nite for a month? Doing something with her that she likes that you wouldn't normally do?

    There's gotta be a way. Sudden onset of stomach flu?

    Keep begging. Maybe it needs a poll. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
