Today I watched Theresa May's Speech in the Commons about the passing of The Queen, and to my surprise she let rip with a few absolutely amazing, touching and hilarious anecdotes about the Queen that had the whole of the Commons laughing.  Absolutely shocked by this, I really didn't think she had it in her, and I'm even more shocked to find myself being glad she did.

 

I never thought I would say this, but credit where credit is due, Tory or not, thank you Mrs May.

The cheek of some people!

Down at our Cretan beach today! A French tourist with no English asked for a bottle of water. Panagiotis, our ageing taverna owner there, sorted it out but couldn't remember where the woman was sitting. My Nicole knew and accompanied him.

She gave Panagiotis 5 euros and he gave her 4 euros 50 in change.

 

Then she asked for a dakos ( a typical snack ) and he brought her it. She refused to pay, saying she had already paid for it!

 

Then I got involved with my schoolboy French from 50 years ago😂😟😃...

 

She insisted she had paid, Nicole witnessed she hadn't.

 

Then Panagiotis shrugged his shoulders and said : " Mr John, the dakos is for you."

( So I ate it- though it was boringly made and I feared for my teeth on the hard rusk😂)...

€0,50 for a bottle of water? No wonder, people don’t earn money in Greece. Tell Panagiotis he should ask €1,50.

Ha. As if.
