Dear Saudi4Ever and dmb,
Hey - what are you people complaining about? At least you HAVE a laundry room. We had no such luxury, and, in fact, had to either buy our own machines or take everything to the laundry man.

Dear Bindair Dundat,
Howdy - and I'll pass on a little coincidence I just stumbled across that means, I'm sure, absolutely nothing whatsoever.
But, if you type Saudi4Ever's user name, and accidently hit the caps lock at the wrong time, you get:

Saudi$Ever.

Tee-hee.

Regards,
John

Now John be good, i'm new here. well actually i've been lurking for sometime now...and I've been watching you. This is your way of accepting me to the club Wink

But for the record. This was not actually a complaint. Remember I really do love my dh's current job and where we live. This was my rationale behind taking a pay cut. I use to tell everyone how I had no problem staying at his current job, but then I read about Yanbu and got all dreamy eyed.

We have a full size GE washer machine and dryer...so what if it is a major cleanup after we use it, at least we have one. I got a very bad sinus infection last month and starting during some reseach. I discovered that some homes can make you sick and my current villa met most of the symptoms of a 'sick house'. This is why I really am interested in the quality of housing in Yanbu. If it s the same then I might as well stay here, pull up my carpet and replace it with tile.

O well can we now get back to the subject of Yanbu? What's the 411 Question

Lil ole simple

Ms. Ever! You already live in a villa, and you want ANOTHER one! yes, I'm sure we would get along well.

Covetously,

I just don't know what to make of this, Mr. Slat. You know, there are those who say that there is no such thing as coincidence!

If you type her name correctly, that $ becomes, of course, 4, which is pronounced exactly the same way as the first syllable of "fortune"!

Warily,

BD

Who is this "dh" that Ms Ever writes about ?
And why do we never hear from Mr Ever ?

We should be told. And I am not sure that women in Saudi Arabia are allowed to post messages without written permission from their husband or male guardian.

:shock:

Dear scot47,

"Who is this "dh" that Ms Ever writes about ?"

Hmm - some possibilities:

1. designated hitter (a term used in baseball)

2. deranged hobbit

3. drugged hippy

4. disgruntled hillbilly

and, most probably.

5. dear (darling) hubby

Regards,
John

I'm afraid to say John that you won't get $ for 4 if you hit caps lock. It only affects letters. I think you mean hit the shift key.

Dear Stephen Jones,
Quite right - I had my keys mixed up (a not unusual situation for this two-fingered typist). But that's even better, seeing as I'm a pretty shifty individual anyway.
Regards,
John

Got it.
I'll respect your boundary and territorial issues in the future. And perhaps we can both learn something about boundaries, which may be the answer to your other post.
