@ChelskiYou are the King of obfuscation, and I bow to you.

 

That's very kind of you @Elljay as I had no idea what obfuscation meant.

 

Neither did the seven voices in my head.

 

None of them call themselves "God" or "Son of" btw.

 

Having said that, and having read the OED definition, I'm still none the wiser.

 

It all sounds a bit negative, BUT, I'm gonna assume it was meant as a compliment.

 

I have no desire to travel to Sweden to burn your house down to a car park.

 

No King.

 

No bowing.

 

;)

New tune with the new year? Or was that one of the other seven? Of course it was a compliment, @Chelski, so no need to burn down the house (isn't there a song in there?):).

Himself just ordered a Hyundai Ionic 5 in matte gold. Should be here in some weeks. Woohoo!

 

Our car is almost 11 yrs. old. Still runs good so we shouldn't have a problem selling it.

Good spot @Elljay on the flip-flop!

 

Albeit slightly stalkerish. The outside of my spidey senses web tingled slightly. :unsure:

It was! But that particular voice responsible for the flip-flop comments is female...  :ph34r:

 

Moving swiftly on (whilst getting his coat) ...

Thank you for the clarification. Much appreciated.

 

If your current parking facilities are sufficient for you and yours, there's no need for me to visit you and expand them. ;)

There is! "Burning Down Elljay's House" by Talking Heads.

 

And so the circle is complete. B)

 

As Stephen King once wrote: "Everything's Eventual".

Politicians like to sneak controversial legislation in under the radar at the end of their time in office, and Mrs Kloeckner of the Merkel regime did just that.

 

I had read about it over here somewhere, but the Guardian reported that the new laws about Hundehaltung prohibit officers pulling a dog back by the collar to stop it attacking a delinquent, so some Berliner police dogs are on gardening leave.

 

The legislation also requires dog-keepers to ensure their pets have interaction with other dogs.

 

I do not have a dog, but I know some on here do, perhaps they have experiences to share. What about guard dogs, Kampfhuende and the like, must they be allowed to interface with other dogs?

Or even Bundesverdienstkreuz!   But there are far more people who put greater effort into running the sport.

 

Or money...

I was thinking the exact same thing, but that's just me being cynical for sure.

 

The douchebag doing a long burnout on his way out of that not-at-all-staged scene was really the cherry on the icing on the cake for me.

I just WANT it to be true! That could be my Auntie Alwyn or your Auntie Alwyn!❤️👍😀

Let's make it true for all of us out there on the streets!!

( And my haters will hate me for this memory on the streets of Basildon, Essex, about 30 years ago.. watched a little old lady being approached by a young skinhead and I went into hearing distance..)

Skinhead: " excuse me, please. Can you tell me where the court house is? "

Old lady: " yes, dear, across the road, second on the left." 

I felt very English that day!😀

Oh no more travelling. Relief. 

As French Bean said above, hoping you can enjoy each others company for a long time.
