Look, lets look at this from a more serious point of view, the Mercedes is probably low on Benzine and there is not another delivery until Monday, or it may be that he has been informed by the hotel that electric and water may get cut during the meeting, or the hotel may have informed him they cannot put food on because the have no cooking gas. But whatever, obviously the man has a more seriously pressing engagement, which is beneficial to Luxor.

Here Barb,

Have just had a P.M., from my old friend Deera, recons business is so bad in Luxor, she's living in Cairo. Any how she informs me that some one paid for a flight, stay at the Winter Palace and taxis. She also said that you had paid for one of her old tricks to come also and bring acamera. Deera thought you were planning some, shall we say more 'artistic' filming. In the end, all it was, was interviewing a couple of down and out ex-pats, then filming some similar type tourists.

The tall and short of it, is that, shefeels you have short changed her by not paying here the full national rate, therefore she sent the Govenor message,.......what a cow Eh.

Any how you are in the clear now Barb.

P.S. - Deena send her best wishes.

Of course if the meeting was planned for tonight and Barb knew about it but didn't post some people would have a go at her for that - it's a no win situation Barb.

:lol: Having read hatusu's posts I dont' think those are likely scenarios.


Of course another possible scenario is that someone is making mischief and trying to discredit the whole Committee/caring Governor situation. Just another thought to add to the conspiracy theories of which I'm sure there must be some already! ;)

:ni: Barb, I have no idea why you should take my comment personally. I did not mention or even hint, allude, suggest or otherwise to you or your name.

What you can take credit for is adding to my laughter count for the day! :)

OK, I'll say it. Somewhere along the line of communication between the governor and the public, there was no one who felt they had the stature, respect, or social standing to tactfully advise the governor that announcing a meeting with the expats at such short notice would only upset and antagonize them and create ill will and anger. That it would have been better for his image to have announced its time and location well in advance via various means. This meeting should have been postponed before it was ever announced and someone should have relayed that to the governor if they really cared about their community and his image. No one needs to create a fake meeting to be a troublemaker. Some can just be yes women and then cry out "Don't shoot the messenger" and have the same effect.

A4, no I do not know the whole story, you are right, just trying to lighten up things. All is getting a little too much for me, people getting pulled here people getting pulled there, my wife tells me I am the only one in Luxor that has no chance of being pulled :lol:


Anyhow after reading some of the posts, I am either on the verge of Dementia, or my brain has closed down completely, half the things are beyond me because I am not in the know has so to speak. I find myself skipping through posts, hoping to pick up on what people are saying only to find I have not read them correctly.

Then again apart from things that directly effect me or my wife, or things I can be of no help with, I have a tendency not to bother.

I must admit though I think the New Governor will be good for Luxor, and I am sure he is working hard to promote the City and drag it out of the gutter, unlike some of the other Governors he seems to have the desire and the work rate to back up everything he says and does.

Yes, Theresa has resigned Robbo, the reason being is that she thought that it was to help the Egyptians (which she would rather do) as well as the expats but that didnt appear to be the case. We are now helping a couple of Egyptian run charities instead.
