Almost Heaven
Fay Slimm. said:

You describe that slice of heaven so well here - thanks for the gentle feel to this read of beach and seaside - I too have always love the bright colours of beach huts striding the sands of Cornish resorts.

TRB,

Very well said! I’ve been on the same wavelength thinking about the 11 innocent lives lost in Pittsburgh! May they Rest In Peace!

A good write - let\'s just hope sense prevails but I have my doubts.

I’ve Always Been a Beer Drinker
orchidee said:

Try all 50 gins - yes? Then you\'ll know which one is best for you. Pity you may be on the floor blotto, by the time you\'ve tasted them all!

I’ve Always Been a Beer Drinker
Goldfinch60 said:

So true nowadays, our local cinema had a gin tasting evening for people so that they could decide which of the ten gins they offered was most like.

As for beer, I will have a pint of Pig\'s Ear please.

Big Black Boots
Goldfinch60 said:

Very good write, those steam punkers always seem to have a great time.

Whitby is a wonderful place, we had my best fish \'n\' chips ever there. The fish was too big for the plate, but I managed but the even stranger thing is I remember the price. This was back in the eighties and the cost was \"Fish, chips, mushy peas, slice of bread and butter, cup of tea - £3.50.\"

Trying To Be Thin
Goldfinch60 said:

I too have a person hiding within who is lithe, sporting, fit with hardly any excess weight but I seem to have lost him half my lifetime ago when I was thirty five.

Gino said:

Nice write. I also have a problem eating right 24/7, and it\'s something I\'ve gotta work on lol. Everything in moderation...

When I Retired
Tamara Beryl Latham - The Poet said:

Wow! I\'m impressed with your words and feel you could be writing about me and thousands of others who have retired and frequent these boards.

Your words are truly heartfelt.

Enjoy your retirement. :)

When I Retired
Michael Edwards said:

I\'m like you are - I have so much to keep me occupied - love a well presented house which can take up quite a bit of time, walking, poetry reading, and of course my art which comes in first - well second after family. Never a dull moment and little time to regret, feel sorry for myself, worry about health and end-of-life issues, get depressed about the past - etcetera. Fine write.

Ancient Thera
Tamara Beryl Latham - The Poet said:

Great write. I too have visited the Greek Islands. Santorini was my favorite.

The food is the best. :)

That last line is so true when we explore histories memories and is even smaller when we think of the Universe.

I\'ve been to most of the Greek Islands but not Santorini (yet) - enjoyed the write.

Me
orchidee said:

A fine write RB. Erm, I got a problem myself - am I Me, Myself, or I? That\'s three people! heehee.

Me
Goldfinch60 said:

We all have these questions about ourselves and come up with the same answers but we are each unique. You are you I and I am me.

Me
Michael Edwards said:

It\'s in the genes - we\'re not related are we? Love it - gave me a big bedtime smile.
