My wife bought me a pair of glasses but took them back to the optometrist (optician)....I was still not seeing things her way!
I went to the ophthalmologist and bought myself a pair of glasses. My DH asked me if I really needed them and would I return them for a full refund. I said forget it...I am tired of not getting to 'see' things my way!

Oh good. Annette...now you can go nuts with posting pictures off the internet and be the one to get in all the trouble with the mods...instead of the rest of us!😜

Beautiful pic.

No Way Pedro! Even the cats complain about my singing!
I thought Frank sang it...is Pedro Spanish for Frank? 😁 And this cat assumes you are being modest and sing very well..."hehaw, hehaww, heehawwww"! Yep, nice job, BB!

You are so kind Chris,
I've never been in trouble in my life!!!
Now I just need to find the ha ha button and the Love button....I can see all the emojis but not those
More learning.
Anyway I'm off to have a few drops of "medicine" ..it's getting late here!

BB I thought it was "no way Hose"

And NYC..you certainly have that music in you...just chatting with you and you could burst into song at any minute..you sound like a fun person ...a bit like my sister.

Well, BB, I know Annette's "medicine"...that's a Brit thing isn't it?πŸ˜› So, guess I'm not entirely out of the Brit loop!😁
Hi Chris
I've never heard it said anywhere....I think I started saying it when I'd get as high as a kite when all the grandkids were around and driving me up the wall .....as in "I need a medicine" ....sounds better than the alternative I suppose as in Nana needs a d...k.......They have big mouths sometimes!!

Walking not going fast enough..

Turga pretends he walks the whole camino, but wifey drives the car to the next spot and picks him up. Last year when he was supposedly lost, he was, but they really turned off accidently on the wrong interstate.

For you Downton Abbey fans - there is an immersive exhibit in Boston now through the end of September. They expect it will travel elsewhere but no site has been chosen yet. You can sign up for a newsletter though. Information at

Please come to Boston by, Dave Loggins.

It’s too far for both the man and DA; too bad though.

Thanks for update.

"No way, Jose" is just as much an American thing as a Brit thing...I practically was born into this world saying that as some of my first words. It goes along with my stubborn impish side. And now that's the same thing Mexico's president is saying in regards to paying for "that wall". 😁
Yes...but β€œNo way Pedro” came from a British comedy called β€œOnly Fools and Horses”.
The main character had a habit of getting his phrases mixed πŸ˜‰.

The "you know who" people are watching everyone closely...and I'm not talkin' about our wonderful forum mods, but about "Big Brother" and the "Thought Police"...now commonly known as Google.(πŸ‘€).

I know, NYC!
Talk about confusing. Glad he explained!
Chris....BB
I think it was me that caused the confusion....I was answering 2 posts in 1
Yes the no way Jose is both UK and American ...probably more American than British in fact
Mind you, we used to say that in Ireland as well

It was the "fools and horses" bit that's well known in the Uk...wouldn't think it's known in the USA
That TV show is so funny..I have them all taped BB
In many ways though..British humour is a lot different to American humour..I think.

Reminds me of this Charlie Brown strip where Charlie is walking up to Snoopy who is sitting on his dog house and says: "Look here Snoopy, there's an add in the paper about an obedience training course -how about that?" And Snoopy thinks to himself: "Why? He's already doing all I want him to do!"

All I know is that squirrel is using that camera lens to look for nuts!

Camino Frances March 2019
I give in. I've looked and better looked but I can't find what I'm looking for. I apologise if this should go elsewhere.

If you look below my grinning mug (taken at the 100Kms to go) it states that I was to do the Camino Norte in 2019. Well, I didn't, I 'did' the Frances in March and loved every single minute of it.
Someone has said that I can alter the 'wrong' information on it but I'll be darned if I can get rid of the Norte and insert the Frances.

Would some kind soul tell me how to perform this feat?

PS. She Who Must Be Obeyed has agreed in principle for me doing another Camino. Roll on the Via de la Plata in 2021 (Fitness and lack of intervention from THE higher Authority willing)
