Thanks Martin - this is a great subject, though I can't say American politics brings any happiness in my life. I prefer the simpler things in life ..... like sunshine, rarely seen this week and hence the photo below taken this morning. Now we can really appreciate those autumn coloured leaves.

Are you suggesting that no-one could lip-read George dubyuh Derek?

I don't think lip reading would have helped much!  :o ::)

This is the I'm so happy thread lads - so no mentions of George dubyuh (great find Anthony  ;D ) please...  ;D

Right now it's howling outside - rain pouring down - and I'm sitting here warm and cosy, having a day off and enjoying a glass of wine reading the Forum - what more does one need ???  :D :D

Well, I'm pretty gosh darn happy.  I'm going on a road trip today to Edmonton, AB.  A mere 3 hours north, or 2.5 when I'm driving  ;D!  Only going till Wednesday morning but still a much needed get away for me.  Woo Hoo!

Having just spent 10 days touring the Peloponnese in temperatures of 28/30C you can guess I am happy.

Pictures to follow when I find time this week, and after I have caught up on the Forum.

I'm sure I can hear something... but the blustery weather is drowning it out........ ::)


Arthur, I'm happy that you've had a good trip and that you and your camera are safely returned to us!  :-*

Tony,

I think it would likely have reduced her to gales of laughter.  ;D ::)
