Mike Draws Chickens
« on: April 20, 2010, 11:49:50 AM »
A bummer that Stef's stuck, I hope at least they can get some place to sleep instead of having to sleep in the airport (like some have done here for instance). At least it's looking like some airspace might be opened again.

I must say though, Mike's drawing skills aren't that bad, and I especially love the last panel, both Julio's and Chucke's comments :D And I think Chuck should be happy Mike can't draw better 'cause I'm sure Julio would win that fight  8)

Heh heh, thanks guys!  ::wave::

Stefan almost made it home yesterday, but the flight got yet bumped back again. They do have a pretty good hotel to stay at, Frank no worries. But Thailand does have some political issues and demonstrations going on so they can't rome around too freely. I can really feel for him since I was stuck in my hotel room in Mexico as well for 4 weeks until recently.....
But those of you who know my brother, know that he never gets stressed out about things he cannot change.
Looks like the next plane might leave in 2 days. We'll see......

Airspace open in BTS and PRG, if he could at least get there, BTS is basically a suburb of Vienna, and in PRG, I could at least buy him a beer ::drinking::

Good think he has somewhere to stay at least. Now, lets hope there is enough places open on the next flight.

they are starting to look at other options since they still haven't left.

I'll let him know about the beer, maybe he'll come see you!  ;)

Yep, the problem now being, you have several planeloads of people stranded all over the world, and only so many free seats in upcoming planes... I do not know how he planned to fly, but it will be tough. Unless he has tickets with China Airlines, which is the only one to cancell ALL reservations for flights 21-26th to fly stranded passengers as priority...

yeah, I am not sure which airline he'll be flying in and if he still is with the original airline/flight.....

He said something about his plane leaving tomorrow but they already "almost" made it out of there twice so far and then didn't.......

We'll see! I am keeping my fingers crossed, we have a website to launch!!!

But at least, we have two strips this week!

(and plenty of ash related material for weeks to come.... heh heh)

Last I heard they were heading to the airport and they were supposed to call my dad when thay got there and when they were about to board the plane.
They should have called by now but nobody has heard from them.

I wonder if they are stuck in some sort of demonstration and/or traffic jam caused by the explosions....   ???
