    Just watched the 3 episodes on ABC TV. The Sufi sequence in Episode 3 was one of the things I will certainly remember. Bob M

    I want to see a nice, COVID-safe Santa reindeer, please.🦌 Where are all our Scandinavian pilgrims? Surely they have reindeer frolicking in their backyards? Bob M

    Best wishes for the Festive Season and for 2022.🎅 I am getting to know the Greek alphabet, which is something good that has come out of the pandemic. Thankfully, they skipped from delta to omicron, passing over kappa, the first letter of the Greek word kaos [Eng: chaos] (the abyss or emptiness...

    You have to be careful with the dictionary. First it's just a couple of words a day, then it's 5 or 6 and before you know it you are in real trouble. Dictionaries remind me of the condemned man on the scaffold who was asked if he had any last words: A - first letter of the English alphabet...

    We have our own ways of coping with the stresses of COVID-19. The lexicographer Sheidlower says: 'In times of stress people will go to things that will provide answers; the Bible, the dictionary or alcohol.'📖📕🍷 Take your pick! Bob M

    De nada, Camino Chrissy. I stayed at a place in Italy on the Via Francigena. I forget the name. God! I have to start taking the pills again. Anyway, what was I saying? Ah yes! There was a big sign in the lounge room that said: "A day spent without laughter is a day wasted." Bob M

    Thank you mspath. What a wonderful thread on the Cruz de Ferro! I have attached a photo of a more modest cross I took somewhere on the stage from San Martin to Astorga. in June 2007. The cairn needs more work. Perhaps someone else has seen the same cross and we can all wallow in nostalgia...

    Great photo. You could use the facemask as a credencial on your next hike. Get it stamped each day. The cairn reminds me of one with a cross on the Camino (I forget the name). You are supposed to leave a stone that you brought from your home, so a great pile has built up around the cross. But...

    When the pandemic hit early last year there were some very funny photos of people planting TP rolls in their gardens to cope with the shortage. We may not be able to hike our next pilgrimage walks just now, but we can still dream and plan to give us hope that a better future is one day closer...

    We Melburnians are in Lockdown 6.0, but it feels like Lockdown Infinity. You go a bit crazy and irritable locked in your apartment. I am thinking of putting a warning sign on my door. What do you think? Too wishy-washy? Should I be more direct? Then there is the TV that makes me want to throw...

    I haven't been out on the balcony for awhile. If I can get a travel visa I might go out there and do some gardening. Have a chat with my goat. But I worry about having too much fun. Bob M

    My travel is a bit restricted at the moment, so my COVID Passport does not have many nice stamps. Sigh😞 Bob M Credits to cartoonist LeLievre.
