Re: The good old days

Hi Pinky, how right you are: "Stay safe and enjoy what you have got"! I chose my words fairly carefully, didn't use the word Hoax or the phrase Fake News ;). I agree and entirely accept that there is a new virus out there, probably more aggressive than the usual viruses like the 'Cold & Flu' which a...

The good old days

Bearing in mind that almost all of us are senior citizens and so, it's fair to say, have a balanced view on life, I want to ask when were your best years ? When you didn't have a care in the world and life was good ! I simply can't help thinking that the present pandemic situation is being distorted...

Re: Our very good Friend Mick?

Wow, Mick, that's a long 'I'm back' story, WELCOME anyway :lol: . I don't suppose that you have a shortened version for the other 'Metal Box defence force': tank crews :shock: :shock: . I must say, having left the army long before amalgamation and so never having had that 'upset' to tend with... The...

Re: Our very good Friend Mick?

Rick, great to see you active again, I trust you are well :) . In the meanwhile Mick has also replied to me and, as you say, some improvement. It often takes a while to settle down after a treatment so fingers crossed that the improvement continues. A guy is moving on to our camp site, in Spain, ex ...

Re: Our very good Friend Mick?

Hi Arnie,

I have written to Mick but have had no reply as yet. I doubt that Marion will be checking his mailbox, so I guess we shall have to be patient.
Let's just hope that someone will read our messages of support to him/ them.

Re: Garden in lockdown.

Upon arriving back in Spain our little garden looked pretty devastated. A friend had been watering regularly but using tap water which is chlorinated (got bleach in it). When we were still here it had rained occasionally and we stored all the water we could get from the roof drainage; this had worke...

Re: Garden in lockdown.

Arnie, are you nuts ? Of course she does not read any of my mail :? :?, I hope :shock: ! Already arrived, enjoyed my drive in the minibus, it does what I want. The Volvo had too many 'controls', worse than when I did my pilots aptitude tests :lol:. Ok, you can turn most of them off, but why then pay...
