RYR70EE with handsfree aboard, actually departed at 06.50 local.

He is heading for another blue day down here.

I have been down to the pool and marked a white "X" on the surface for him to aim the beer barrel at.

Greetings,

The guessers seem to think it will be warm today. 35 where HF is going, warmer than EMA then.

Wonder if Beafourt waved.

Looks like they are following the Guadal Canal at the moment so he will have to put the barrels in the car and meet in the Swedish store solar power area.

Post perhaps this morning, need to check the tracking, and a trip to the interior this afternoon to collect a free exercise bike for SM. Best take the seats out in case.

I went for a run down by the river, under the trees thinking it would be pleasantly cool, but 18 degrees already at 8am. Not going to last though.

Hope handsfree has got his sun hat and cream, as govinmint weather guessers are warning of extreme heat and rays from the sun on the morrow.

Had the little people with us for a few hours, early evening yesterday, whilst their mother was out on a photo shoot. Needless to say,Mrs IB and I feel rather kernackered this morning.

Morning folks. Clear blue sky but still a chilly 20. Our painter now says that he can't start until Friday - rain forecast

Booked our return ship tickets for July yesterday. I told the boss that it was a bit premature but Mrs Organised insisted. We got 50% discount for an early booking limited number of tickets available to locals only It pays to have a good PA.

Been out to return a no longer required gas cylinder, get my deposit back and cancel the contact at the supplier. Simples you would think.

Instead, a scandihooligan employee of the company, who thinks he can speak and understand Spanish, tried to charge me €22 for the privilege.

Managed to get the manager back from his coffee break and 30 minutes later exited with my €22 refund, after an apology, hand shake and a joke about Scandi people.

Now waiting for vodafone to turn up before 12.00 (confirmed this morning) to fettle ADSL. Surprise, surprise that 12.00 has been and gone.

Well, tony; another year has flashed by. Many Happy Returns but may they slow down a bit.

Oh Dear...


One has been summoned to 'Ye Conservative Club' tonight. I think I shall walk there as I shall certainly be legally obliged to walk back.

Happy Birthday FSL.

I have left the stowaway in charge of organizing a celebratory 21-gun salute at precisely 6pm BST, when the extra tot of rum will be issued.

Afternoon all, Hoppy Burfday FSL

A few piccies of the resident hound, the slight brown tinge is due to bleaching by the sun. You can just see her adult coat coming through as a broad shiny stripe on her back.
