What made you laugh today?

Out with my charming little dog Mandy a few minutes ago. Two girls- maybe 17/18 and in broken German- came up to me. One said : " verkaufst Du mir den Hund? Ich gebe Dir 500 Euro jetzt."

I politely rejected the offer.

" Dann gebe ich Dir 1000 Euro."

I told her love is not for sale!

I never leave Mandy on her own in the street if I am out shopping. Someone would definitely kidnap her. So this post is only a " half laugh " one.

I was talking to an Austrian couple who are going to see the Stones in Vienna. They didn't know about any Keith Richards jokes so I happily passed that one along.

I just read that Keith Richards' grandchildren put him in their will.

  • 1. "They should not allow topless sunbathing on the beach. It was very distracting for my husband who just wanted to relax."
  • 2. "On my holiday to Goa in India, I was disgusted to find that almost every restaurant served curry. I don't like spicy food."
  • 3. "We went on holiday to Spain and had a problem with the taxi drivers as they were all Spanish."
  • 4. "We booked an excursion to a water park but no-one told us we had to bring our own swimsuits and towels. We assumed it would be included in the price."
  • 5. "The beach was too sandy. We had to clean everything when we returned to our room."
  • 6. "We found the sand was not like the sand in the brochure. Your brochure shows the sand as white but it was more yellow."
  • 7. "It's lazy of the local shopkeepers in Puerto Vallartato close in the afternoons. I often needed to buy things during 'siesta' time -- this should be banned."
  • 8. "No-one told us there would be fish in the water. The children were scared."
  • 9. "Although the brochure said that there was a fully equipped kitchen, there was no egg-slicer in the drawers."
  • 10. "I think it should be explained in the brochure that the local convenience store does not sell proper biscuits like custard creams or ginger nuts."
  • 11. "The roads were uneven and bumpy, so we could not read the local guide book during the bus ride to the resort. Because of this, we were unaware of many things that would have made our holiday more fun."
  • 12. "It took us nine hours to fly home from Jamaica to England. It took the Americans only three hours to get home. This seems unfair."
  • 13. "I compared the size of our one-bedroom suite to our friends' three-bedroom and ours was significantly smaller."
  • 14. "The brochure stated: 'No hairdressers at the resort.' We're trainee hairdressers and we think they knew and made us wait longer for service."
  • 15. "When we were in Spain, there were too many Spanish people there. The receptionist spoke Spanish, the food was Spanish. No one told us that there would be so many foreigners."
  • 16. "We had to line up outside to catch the boat and there was no air-conditioning."
  • 17. "It is your duty as a tour operator to advise us of noisy or unruly guests before we travel."
  • 18. "I was bitten by a mosquito. The brochure did not mention mosquitoes."
  • 19. "My fiancée and I requested twin-beds when we booked, but instead we were placed in a room with a king bed. We now hold you responsible and want to be re-reimbursed for the fact that I became pregnant. This would not have happened if you had put us in the room that we booked."
