Camel Jockey Bob

This photo was obviously taken while I was on a desert safari in Dubai. It starts late in the afternoon with about an hour of dune bashing in Toyoto SUVs (I can't remember the name. It's not Range Rover, but something like that), ending up at a Bedouin type of camp set up in the desert, where you get to ride a camel for about 100 yards, then have a traditional dinner -- although one featured dish in the buffet was spaghetti bolognese.
I also got a henna tattoo of a scorpion, which the henna artist said is a good luck symbol for a man getting married. "With no tattoo, there is no marriage." She said the tattoo would last about a week, but after three days, it had faded away -- the same way my "Go Sens Go" henna tattoo did during the playoffs.

You mean, faded kinda like the way the Sens faded in the finals last year?
...or how they've been fading for the last couple of weeks?

Yeah, well the Leafs have never won the Cup in colour.

Bobby, I think you should make copies of that pic of you on the camel and use it as your Christmas card. Good times!

JB said...

Yes,I'm aware the Leafs have never won the Cup in colour. It's one of the (many) reasons I'm a Habs fan.
p.s. The Sens also have never won the Cup in colour.

Naw, you can't keep the costume -- just try it on long enough for a photo. Then I took it off really fast. You don't know who might have been wearing it before you. Ewwwwwwwwwwwww.
