excuse me being gross...
for us, instead of tissue, is a soap, tabu with water and we use our hands directly to that part to clean it and pat dry with towel.:p:cool:
Yaying, I've known in many parts of the world that it is done this way. All the variations of so many things, from food to loo, make each culture often so different than the next.

An elephant is drinking out of a river when he spots a turtle asleep on a log. The elephant ambles over and kicks the unsuspecting turtle clear across the river.
“Why did you do that?” asks a passing giraffe.
“Because I recognized it as the same turtle that took a nip out of my trunk 47 years ago.”
“Wow, what a memory!” says the giraffe.
“Yes,” says the elephant. “Turtle recall. 🤪🤪🤪

Some day, some fine day, we can all be sitting on a verandah, sipping whatever takes our fancy, and we shall recall, and rejoice, and there will be forever joy! or did I misunderstand?!
Folks, this space is to be celebrated.
Just because.
We each have our own concerns, but here, while not forgetting for one second the ills of existence, greetings! Peace be on this house!

I said stop and smell the roses. Not cow dung...silly girl!
Hi Camino chris,
I love the smell of cow dung....oh yes I do .....reminds me of my childhood spent on farms
It's what I love about walking through Galecia..the cows being herded in by the women ...usually the elderly women and ...the smell of the dung....like perfume to my nostrils!!!
I also love the smell of roses too!!
And coffee brewing
Cheers
Annette

Yaying, I wasctired last night from too much frolicking, so went to bed early. The only negative in doing that is then I woke up too early, but I'm getting entertained this morning anyway.

Cue song: Those were the days my friend, the days that....
Those were the days my friend
We thought they'd never end
We'd sing and dance forever and a day
We'd live the life we choose
We'd fight and never lose
Those were the days
Oh yes, those were the days"....and so on

This was my mums favourite song and was played at her funeral....
Now I just have a good cry when I hear it..
So sorry folks...
This is the second time I've mentioned songs and funerals!!
I must remember.....this is the NOT so serious thread!!!

Yesterday, my mom opened car door while I was driving. She has early to mid stage Alzheimer’s.

Sometimes it’s okay to get a little serious.

I’m gonna find some elephants 🐘 🐘🐘 today. Eventhough, I am in Los Angeles I should be able to find some.

Morning from Dublin everyone. I have been around. Just sometimes lazy to hit like, sometimes not wanting to, sometimes busy. That is ok too. i just made a little backwards glance and found this picture:
52376
Who posted it???? In having a look, I noticed Famped has a new avatar, very nice... oops, take off ice pack, forgot to time it! Just following physio’s orders so I can look gherkin in the eye and say yes, i used the ice pack...
On previous line, a gremlin replaced the word ‘her’ with gherkin’. Oh! For the days of the retractable golf ball typewriter! Go to it, Bb!

My thought is that either Peter or Turga posted that photo. Looks like their style!

I believe you are right, and since I know it wasn't me -then guess who 🇳🇱
Well, if that's Peter's national flag (I'm too lazy to look it up), then I'm really, really right cuz he was my first choice!
P.S. that sphere looks like the logo on a can of Pepsi!
