    Ah, I intended to make a cross reference to the Crystal thread, but forgot in all the excitement!
    I saw you found them anyway pakarang, but for other readers of this thread:-

    Lookchin finally made an appearance on the Crystal Symphony computer room webcam on the very last day of his cruise with Aunt E (after many hints and reminders and constant surveillance from the Edinburgh technical department !!!!)
    The pictures start here.

        Oh, nearly posted something in the wrong thread! - Rather than just delete a post here, I'll give you a link to what just might be a Lookchin related thread elsewhere in the forum!!!!!!!!!

          I know the Captain is concerned about his baby-bear...so, although I am still sifting through photos, I will post two from our time together..

          In Rome, my niece Emerson (would that make her sort of Lookchin's cousin???) let him have some fun with her video recorder...Em hasn't sent me any videos he took, though..



          And this weekend, Lookchin helped me pick some of the zinnias in my garden....

            . . . and the Captain hasn’t been the only one . . . this Aunt having been wondering how Lookchin was getting used to the heat, and hoping he wasn’t getting up to mischief while his Aunt E was so busy on returning home after the long trip. So what a relief to find everything explained in one photo! –a suitable T-shirt to wear while he popped off to Atlanta to take a college course! Some Computing or Engineering studies I expect – I am delighted that spending time with a technically minded Bear here in Scotland had such a good influence!

            No doubt the Georgia Institute of Technology homepage will have to be updated to read:
            Georgia Tech's campus occupies 400 acres in the heart of the city of Atlanta, where 20,000 undergraduate and graduate students and 1 bear receive a focused, technologically based education.

            As for the use of Emerson’s video camera in Rome –Sea-Troll had been playing with it too, so I just, errrr, interrogated said Troll who has confessed that neither he nor Lookchin took any actual videos!

            Apparently they were just posing with the camera trying to look like Paparazzi !!!!!!!!
            Oh well, when in Rome as the saying goes . . . .

              Great seeing he is still being recorded during his vacation, can't wait till the time when Lady E will post memories from his US experiences...

                I think Lady E should also ask Lookchin about the adventures he had climbing Mount Everest when he was a very young bear. Evidence of this can be found in the "What Place is This?" thread.!

                  So Lookchin has had a secret past life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
                  No wonder he seemed a little bit unimpressed by the local hill of 207m he climbed in Edinburgh – and there was I thinking he was simply complaining because he hadn’t been to sea level shipspotting at that stage in his visit!

                    I wonder where is the updates from the US....

                    Has LC suddenly started to become afraid of paparazzi's...?

                    Yes, he might have been on a mountain trek once in his life... he always spoke of the time he went to Himalaya, but I thought he was just bragging....

                      I have photos...will try to get them posted soon!!!!!

                        Well, I know you all want cruise photos, but you will have to wait...

                        I'm going through my photos and remembering all that Lookchin and I have done since we got back...

                        This first outing is a visit to my dear friend Susanne's shop--
                        (Jan-Olav, this is the "Susanne" of hilarious emails...come to think of it, we have all benefited- many of her funnies have ended up in "gorgeous smile"...)

                        Susanne owns a manicure salon called "Tips to Toes"- she's the one in the green shirt with our friend Karen on Kaolin Festival parade day..



                        She collects flamingos and has a Harley that has pink flamingos painted on it......and yes, Admiral, she has tattoos....

                        ANYWAY, we visited Susanne...

                        Lookchin tried to convince me to go for the blue nail polish



                        and he tried out the massage chair...

                        Comment


                          Lookchin thought one of her flamingos was fun for a ride



                          Susanne has lots of plants in her shop (she loves to garden) which provided fun climbing possibilities...



                          She keeps her ficus tree strung with white lights and Harley Christmas ornaments year round.







                          An extra ornament looks good as an earring!



                          and he found a great perch to survey the shop.

                            We browsed through a collection of rock-n-roll CD's (Susanne favors Aerosmith)



                            And I thought about trying out the hot paraffin wax hand treatment...but Susanne and E thought better...



                            I met some new friends..

                            Comment


                              E then took me to the Coffee Den (E's "downtown office")...I had such trouble deciding what to sample.





                              So see, I am having FUN!!!!!!!!!!

                                Those are absolutely ADORABLE!....

                                He is such a well mannered, for the most part, and such a great photo model.

                                Oh, am I glad he was "doing the flamingo" that way and not the other way...

                                So that's Susanne.... she looks like a really fun person, I would love to have spent some time with her someday, or the both of you!
