...btw, What is the status on Ken Hams ark thing? Is it finally dead yet or do we still have to wait for him to fail at making that atrocity?

According to an article from TIME from June of this year, the Ark Park was slated for opening in 'summer of 2016'.

Strangely, I wasn't able to find a more recent article on the monstrosity.

RE: Is it April 1st? this has to be a joke.
So my husband doesn't want to be the one to say no to his parents Dodgy (that's another thread for the personal issues section I guess). but I get it. They're old and set in their ways and he doesn't want to rock the boat. So I volunteered to be the bad guy and write the email. He seemed relieved that he could escape and put the blame on his wife. Whatever....It doesn't bother me to be the bad guy- they leave me alone for the most part.


Thank you for the invite but we will pass.
We are trying to figure out when we can visit Chicago again. We want to catch up with friends as well as family in one trip, and have been wanting to take the girls to the Chicago museums (Field, Science & Industry, Aquarium, Planetarium, Art). We realize all of you have been to them before but our children haven't, it's been on our "to-do" list for quite some time.



He didn't want me to pick on the Creation Museum, he didn't want me to pin down any dates, lol...and he veto'ed my use of " you got to be fucking kidding me' or any variation of that phrase or anything else with that 'tone'


We asked the kids if they wanted to go, they both gave that 'are you fucking nuts, Mom?' look to us. Laugh out load

Coward LOL. He's a grown adult right, surely he can front up to his parents and say no.

I wouldn't say "but we will pass", it seems a bit like trivialising the event.
Like something you might say if a bunch of workmates were asking you to come along to the pub after work.
They are organising this as a big family get together and hoping people will travel great distances. I personally think it requires more respect than "but we will pass".
If you just say "Thank you for the invite." and then your next bit "We are trying to figure out..."
I think that is better. "but we will pass" could irk them.

This is excellent though.

He seems wise, but then why didn't he write it himself? He's just scared to have his family see his name as the author. He's gonna be like, "Yeah mum, I'd have loved to have come, but I couldn't convince the wife."

too late, already sent. I think my hubby realized they were going to be irked no matter what, so better to come from me rather than him.
