Holiday.
« on: May 13, 2023, 09:24:41 AM »
My wife and I are off for a week's break tomorrow. Our plane leaves at 6.45 a.m., which sounds reasonable until you remember you have to be at the airport two hours before it departs. Add on another hour and a quarter to GET to the airport and you realise you'll be getting up at 2.30 in the morning. I hope to be asleep before the plane's wheels are up.
I'm looking forward to the break as it's been a difficult few months with far too many funerals to attend and a bout of Covid thrown in. That first cold beer in the evening sunshine will taste very nice indeed!
Be good.

Sounds like a much needed and well-timed break for you and Lady K, Roger. Enjoy that beer, and the rest...
I apologise, in advance.

have fun in the sun, and a nap by the pool :-)

Nowhere. I'm still here.

So you admit that Scotland is nowhere.

Absolutely! I'm a very proud native.

Where are you off to?
Portugal. Home now after a very pleasant week of swimming in the sunshine. I now have the tanned, toned body of a Greek god.
Ahem.

Don't the Portuguese have their own gods?

Eusebio. That's it, I think. Maybe Ronaldo.

And Roger...

You kidnapped someone from Portugal?

Out of interest, did you holiday in Albufeira?

In nearby Sao Rafael. It's been a regular haunt over the years and much quieter than its noisy neighbour!

I just looked it up, quite close to Gibraltar - have you ever been tempted to pop down there and see the apes?

I haven't, Diane. Going to Gibraltar would require a bit of effort on my part---not something I'm renowned for.
