NYC, is your new avatar the back side of your cell phone? Awesome! Seashells carry lots of sounds...usually gossip! Have you ever heard of a "shell ear"!

I know you’ll “make plenty” Turga...I’ve seen your shipping charges 😂😂😂
I only need one of each...should be only $1000 shipping to me.
I'm gonna take them to a local stitchery and have them made like the ones Ivar sells!

If you are going to have them stitched, then why do you want me to print, laminate and cut some and send them to US? Just make a print and take it to the stitchery; or just bring the pictures on your phone. :rolleyes:
Do it anyway. Just send the paper. I have laminate. Stop worrying..just do it! Please!

Ok, I don't know where I got this photo from, but I've been waiting to throw it in the mix...Although I have never used drugs, nor even smoked one cigarette, if I think of peeps who have used hallucination drugs...this reminds me of what they might imagine and "trip" on...😜

P.S. My intention is to get them made into stitchery...but if I fail (as in procrastinate cuz I occasionally can be a hypocrit), then I will laminate them myself. Just pop one or two of each in a simple envelope!

Good morning, Turga...or is it almost noon for you.
Why did the tortoise decide not to cross the road?
Because he knew he'd definately be road kill if he did.

Why do men always think that...not true and I'm not bossy either. I only give gentle reminders once in awhile. Is that what's callled nagging? Men hate that so eventually they just...do what they are told, I mean asked!😂

Ok, seriously (seriously!); If all you need is a paper print of the badge, it will be so much easier and faster if you just print it yourself. If you are uncertain how to do it, here is a little script that I hope will help you:
  • Right click on the image and choose “Save image as”
  • In the dialog box that appears, for File-type choose “JPEG Image”
  • As save-to folder choose fx Desktop
  • Press “Save”
  • Locate the image icon on the Desktop; right-click the image and choose “Print”
And voila…! 🐢

I get what you are saying, but I only use my phone. How about if you email me instead and just send the images as photos. Both badges, please, if that is ok I can send you a pm. I can print from there easier, or have help. Let me know. Are you sure you are willing to give up all of the lucrative shipping reimbursements $€£? 😂

That’s a good idea –you are smart! :D

PM me your email address and I will send the image files. And about the shipping fee, I am not collecting worldly goods 😇 (we can split a bottle of vino tinto (on you) when we meet on the trail some day :p )

A lot of back and forth... and Rick is quite uncharacteristic...57886
Chris, you wound Turga round your little finger...
Everybody else, hi, great fun. Simple, and clean. I quite like that devil, actually. Maybe nycwalking can use it for her next avatar, given the rate of change these days, you will need a few in reserve.. but, on second thoughts, Cc is perhaps the best one to have that little devil as avatar. Let’s see what non serious stuff we can come up with over the next few days. And do not use a gadget for slicing potatoes like I did. A lot of red stuff and a bundle of plasters later, it is almost better...

I know your passion is root beer NYC, but shouldn't your new clock avatar have a caption under it for the rest of us that says "It's 5 o'clock somewhere"!

We could devote a whole thread reminiscing on our favorite songs with "time" in the title.

Here's a favorite melancholy love song of mine by Barbra Streisand from the movie "The Way We Were". The song title is "Memories", but one verse..."Or has time rewritten every line" stands out. I know the whole song by heart...yeah, I can be an imp, but I'm also a romantic sap!
EDIT- A little TMI maybe?...who cares!

Just a little story to start the day with a chuckle and show the “apple doesn’t fall far from the tree”.
My youngest son is an artist and works on commissions. One day I went into the garage and he was working on a painting of the exterior of a property and it’s surroundings.
I commented that it was very good.
Two weeks later I saw him painting another, the conversation went like this....
Me “That’s good Charlie, see how word of mouth gets you more work. The neighbour must have seen your last one and wanted one of their own”
Son. “No dad...I painted the wrong house”.

But there are no red lights around the corner...but maybe that's where the one budging in just came from. It was no good over there after all.😂

Now, folks, in spite of having a variety of urgent type things to do, I just made up a word page of copies of turga's latest camino badge. Just find a friend if you don't have a printer. Never mind laminating. That takes 20,000 years to disintegrate. (Moi? Exaggerating? Hmm...) as for getting a cloth copy.. I am too lazy. I will print and somehow affix to my ancient rucksack with some kind of plastic bag. reused.
oh dear, I can't upload it. If I take a screenshot?..

You can convert the content of the word document to an image through these steps:
  • Open the “badge-document”
  • Open a new (empty) document
  • Switch to the “badge-document” and select the content of the document (Select all)
  • Copy the selection
  • Switch to the empty document and choose Paste/Paste Special and choose Image (extended metafile) and press OK
  • Right click somewhere in the “text” you just inserted in the new document and choose Save as image from the drop-down menu
  • In the dialog-box, type in a name for the image, select the file location you want (fx Desktop) and as File Type select PNG
Now you can upload the image as usual :)

I think your son has taken after me !!

Some years ago as a District Nurse, I got a referral to go and see a lady who was confused and having difficulty with her medication...
So off I went..
Knocked at the door introduced myself and this little old lady on a walking frame let me in!
Upstairs we go to check her medication
She seemed very confident and not the least confused re the whole process and I said so!!

Patient......."nurse, are you sure you're in the right house"
Me..."this is 111 Fernhall road isn't it"?
Patient...No love, this is 111 Roman road"! .....I think you are the one that's confused" she said

I kid you not folks ...did we laugh or what.
Even now I can't believe it to this day
I could write a book!!

She seemed very confident and not the least confused re the whole process and I said so!!

Patient......."nurse, are you sure you're in the right house"
Me..."this is 111 Fernhall road isn't it"?
Patient...No love, this is 111 Roman road"! .....I think you are the one that's confused" she said

I kid you not folks ...did we laugh or what.
Even now I can't believe it to this day
I could write a book!!
Yes, Annette, they are practically twin stories for sure!
I have one as well. I used to hang wallpaper in residential homes. I was set to do a job in a bathroom while the owners were at work. They'd left the back door unlocked for me. I go in, set out all my tools, removed pictures and towel bars from the wall when I heard a noise. A lady walks in and asks what am I doing in her home! Opps, wrong house...
I was supposed to be across the street!

Hey. Call the Midwife isn't doing too badly.
I had a midwife deliver my second son. We were living in a school bus converted into a motor home at the time. He did a school report about it in fifth grade and titled it "Boy born in bus"...seriously!

wallpaper
Speaking of wallpaper (but not trespassing) four of us moved into a house and I ended up with a room recently re-paperex by the landlady and her boyfriend. It was French Provincal in style with a pastoral scene with a young couple maybe 6 inches / 15 cm high. It took me two months though to notice that one sheet was hung upside down. Sometime later I notice, very close to a closet door, that the wallpaper matched at the ceiling and floor but somehow not in the middle.

They should have hired me for the job. I wallpapered for twelve years with only one unhappy customer and was able to rectify the issue she had...she ended up happy, making my success rate 100%...seriously.

Continuing to speak of wallpapering, probably 40% of the jobs I got were from married couples who said they tried hanging some together themselves first. They said "Never again, we almost ended up divorced"!
I just smiled sweetly and was happy they needed my services. It was very rewarding helping to save so many marriages from disaster...and getting paid for it!😄
