Aaahhh , Scottich Yianis,
This 35deg at 4:30 pm is not only too hot for you, but too dangerous!!! - I can see you now , flapping yer kilt to keep cool. You'll get arrested!!
and... people will say "why does he want two eggs? - He already has them!"
and.... was that good planning by Riggers. Lil tinker that he is!! - WOTABOUTME?

Meanwhile , Kev n Bev enjoy this temp and sit around the pool with "not so young"  ,Billy. - Twas good to see them and bend their ears!!
(I am a master at earbending and cause many to lose the will to live!!)

Looking forward to Riggs and Karl (Truth) appearing soon. So many ears to bend , so little time!!

anyone else wanna take me on??

Cheers
Negg

Have a great time Kev and Bev and please post lots. I know it is difficult with just one hand as other occupied drinking but please make the sacrifice for all us thirsty for news.

Doh.... bless her ... liking my plums. and I am not even wearing speedos!! - (Don't give her too much to drink... I hear she is a fan of "shorts")

That's a good pic of Tria , Kevin , from a different angle and does it justice.
I will catch yer both soon and If any more plums to pick they will be yours,
Meanwhile.... I have been on my darts delivery and pleased many guys , thanks to you , me boy! - Tis good to be home even with 27deg in the house and 32 deg outside which is threatenong to break in!! -"Keep away yer bugger!"

I am told there was a minor earthquake , this afternoon , but the ground never moved for me. can't remember the last time it did.

Cheers
Negg

Hi

Yes it should have said a day around the pool the wind must have blown the pool letters away haha

Hot day very windy
I went for walk behind the galini appts to Analipseos church taking photos I think it is part of the Arillas trail
The wind has got stronger at 1700hrs you can hear the doors banging and things flying off the tables

It is a Greek holiday today because
The Dormition of the Virgin Mary, or Assumption of the Virgin Mary, refers to the feast celebrating what is believed to be the miraculous transport of Mary, to Heaven after her death

Kevin , after that mouthful why don't we say it's a Bank Holiday!! - Greece haven't had one for a while??????

The wind is very welcome to us, at least more welcome than Kevins. I know that when he creates it he looks at the person next to him and says "Was that you?" Anyway, those who have endured such a heat ,for such a long time, it is so nice to sit back, in your Taverna chair, and watch your kevtedes end up on anther table- "Can I have my ball back, springs to mind"

This breezy weather has now found it's way to Kavadaddes and I have been busy, the last 30 mins ,staking down the sweetcorn , tommies and peppers. Tis 19:45 now so time to eat.

Still 27 deg in the house but hatches battened down and black n white Fritzie has just flown past the window. Ne'er mind he'll be back for food later

Cheers

Out of interest Eggy do you (or should I say Wendy!) tend to cook Greek style food at home or do you cook English dishes?

Wendy does a good bifteki and briam. Fried courgette and Kevtedes. - Sadly I do not eat many greek specials such as stifado , sofrito etc and the only fish I tend to enjoy are the sardines. Sometimes calamari. Not a great fan of salads and tomato rich dishes annoy my stomach.
I am a meat and chip man. Often wonder why we live here as I don't like sand and water is only for ouzo!! and the heat gets too much.
"Victor Meldrew" signing off with a 28deg start for Arillas today - Gonna have a bacon sarnie for breakfast!!
