  1. Why are you happy today?

    Really great to read about an opponent in a football match who  went to the aid of another player:
  2. Why are you happy today?

    Great view over lunch today! Choppy waves, 40 k per hour North wind but a lovely day!    
  3. Why are you happy today?

    Thank you, dear RedMidge..thank you. We have, of course, fallen helplessly in love with Sandy but we cannot handle any more dogs. It will be a heart-wrencher when he leaves but we can only hope he finds his happiness.  Karma was at work today at the vet´ was an amazing atmosphere..even the vet said " don´t pay me "...a wonderful Spring gift from the universe. Come to think of it...for the puppy, it´s a Grexit post!!!
  4. Why are you happy today?

    A wonderful thing happened today...we found an abandoned puppy the other day - his name is now Sandy. We went to the vet today and met two ladies from a pet rescue organisation from a country I will not name (just in case it scuppers their rescue efforts in a country which frowns upon foreigners taking out dogs ). We had gone there to check out the health of the dog...they will take the dog to a good family (vetoed carefully) we will have this delightful creature for two or three weeks and then he will be saved. We are came from nothing and the chemistry between us all worked out. Delighted...
  5. Describe your sex life,

    Unknown movie (not yet released!): " No time for a quickie "...footie´s about to start!
  6. Describe your sex life,

    The jury´s out on the quality of that movie, hoops!
  7. Describe your sex life,

    Some Like It Hot!!   (1959!!)     .and Toy Story?
  8. What made you laugh today?

    There´s this scam going around here where people claiming to be from the Greek Telekom people (known as OTE ) call you in English and say you have a problem with your router and you should go straight to your computer and turn it on and they will " help ". These calls are occurring about 10 times a day on our landline phone now. I went to town today to OTE´s office and spoke to them. " Yes, it´s well-known now and on the TV and in the media etc ". Me: " So I tell them to fuck off if they call?" OTE guy: " yes".   Minutes later, my Nicole called me and said: " they´ve just called again." Me: " what did you say? " Nicole: " I shouted Wichser and they hung up ".   Ein Herz und eine Seele!
  9. Why are you unhappy today?

    I´m no fun anymore, either, Tap!
  10. Why are you unhappy today?

    (blushes, Tap )... Should I write to Olivia, then?
  11. Why are you unhappy today?

    She only wants gentlemen, Tap, so I´m out of the game!!!!
  12. Why are you unhappy today?

    You may well be right, Tap! Maybe I should answer Olivia below instead!! (NOT!!) Oh, the spam thread has been removed! Wonder if she´s still there on the politics XYZ thingy thread!!!  
  13. Why are you unhappy today?

    WTF? Old woman stabs a boy to death in Switzerland. Jeez.
  14. Why are you unhappy today?

    Jeez... the puppy is with us right now at home in a nest and is gorgeous... We took him back to the beach today ..and there he felt confident enough in his " familiar surroundings " to eat a bit! Sigh..dunno what next. Ok, the vet at the weekend. Takis, a Cretan animal protection activist, posted another pic today or yesterday of a dog found dead, having been chained to  a barrel outside and left to starve to death. That is illegal even here (ie being chained ). They must enforce the laws here..hit the fuckers hard, which means: in the pocket above all and open up some gaol doors.    There are times I/we personally have no energy left either to be here or move away but we have to do what we can whilst we are here (still).  Did I tell you that puppy is absolutely gorgeous?
  15. What's got you flummoxed today?

    Depraved..ok, young..
