Heโ€™s baaack!
Yes, literally on his back! Come to think of it, I don't want to help him. If he stays.like this, maybe he'll stick around a little longer and play with us. Let's not forget that he is behind in his membership dues though!

This tortoise may take some time off every now and then, but he will never leave this thread. That's a promise (fingers crossed :p)

Ok, now I'm confused! Does fingers crossed mean "you promise" or "you're fibbing"! I haven't done that since I was a kid and I don't remember which it is! ๐Ÿ˜›
Ok, everyone, put the dunce hat on me. I just discovered on another thread that fingers crossed means similar to "hoping so"! It's all good! โ˜บ

You are now dubbed thread librarian and archivist Kirkie ๐Ÿค‘!
Ok, in that case: if you havenโ€™t yet found Epicamino, get cracking. A wandererโ€™s dream. I like that the warts are kept to a minimum, but it does paint a realistic picture. At the risk of being accused of a crime in terms of gender I say, easier for a man than a woman. I will not respond to accusers!

And so much easier for this โ€œmanโ€.

How about... "Elephants Can Only Nap In Trees If They Are Disguised By Wearing RED Nail Polish"! I'm sure there is a real word in there somewhere! ๐Ÿ˜› If not, it's ok cuz this is the Not Serious thread! Everything and anything goes!!๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚

That makes two Chris. And yes you can dance .
Marianne and I don't have children . And because of that we don't have grandchildren eather. We wanted to , but...long story !!!๐Ÿ˜”
I have 2 sons, 1 married. Neither want children so I know I'm out in that department! We each get a different kaleidoscope to live our lives in, each person's in varying colors.

I had the pleasure of meeting two Korean gentlemen friends in 2015. One was bald, and said for the first time ever he left his hairpiece at home. I told him he looked nice and didn't need it. His friend had taken a vow of silence for a week and was three days in when we met. He looked so happy, smiled alot and nodded and often made the universal peace sign. I remember them like it was yesterday!

Singing and dancing. It's time for me to get back on this thread. Here's something to use to help hesitant walkers make up their minds about whether they should walk a camino or not. (By the way, I can neither sing nor dance, according to most people's definition anyway.)
Thank you Rick and Peg for posting this
Wonderful words.

Years ago when I first heard this song, I went and got the CD .....transcribed the words onto paper and put both into a drawer.
I had asked the daughters that this song be played at my funeral.......words for the grandsons really to hear at the last goodbye!
Now, I think that as they're getting that bit older i might just have a search in that drawer and play it for them ....with interpretation of the words of course!

So sorry to hijack this thread with such a serious post
Best wishes. Annette

Hi Annette, I hijacked this thread myself a wee bit today, too! You are not alone. Maybe a new thread could be started, titled "Serious musings only"!
Thanks Chris,
A serious thread!!
Not sure if it would last as long as this one though!!

Iโ€™m guessing the money can talk but you canโ€™t on a silent Camino. Canโ€™t see the fun in it unless for religious reasons. Perhaps you could enlighten me as to the reason why?
The Korean man I met that was being silent was doing it for religious reasons, B.B. Maybe in his normal life he's "as loud as they come" and he was trying to put a muzzle on it!๐Ÿ˜‚

So was Tomas's just a hole in the ground then?
Oh no. You crossed the road, walked on a trail into a bit of brush and climbed up unto a wooden platform to find a neatly cut hole in the middle of it.

Hey, Peg, did you use the latrine at Tomas's?
Yes I did.
Did you take a ****?
Yeah.
How did you like it?
It was awful.

Over on one of the "serious" thteads is this one that is partly non-serious

What camino souvenirs did you come home with?
I came home with shell earrings and bracelets. Had I known these little "gems" were available, I'd have bought doubles of each and turned them into earrings instead! ๐Ÿ˜›
