This Old Brit Is Back In Town ... And Blogging ...

Bah, humbug!

Talk about back down to earth with a bloody big bump.

Take off from southern Turkey's Mediterranean coast in beautiful 90 degree wall to wall sunshine with just a gentle 4 mph breeze blowing -- then a mere four & a half hours later -- touch splash down into Merseyside's miserable 55 degree p*ssing down rain with accompanying, flaming 45 mph gales.


Can you say buffeted & battered?

Home sweet home, eh?

Huh. We'd most certainly say not.

No wonder we wander the world wherever & whenever we can. Eh?

Be it in search of some culture ... or a better kind of climate ...

... or better blinkin' still, both.

Ah, well. Whatever. What's new?

It didn't take too long for us to get right back to moaning & groaning, did it?

Seriously though, while we thank you for all your well wishes while we were away, as well as your kind comments along with your loyalty -- we genuinely wish you all could have come along with us. Really, we do.

Also, we sincerely hope every thing's been going as great for you as it has for us over the last fortnight. Honestly & truly.

Anyway, right now there's a real lot of real life stuff to sort out. Like unpacking properly, defrosting freezer contents, packing washing machines full of stuff of the smelly sort, shuffling off to the shops, spending what darned dosh we still have left on silly things like scoff and so on ... dee dah, dee dah, dee dah.

Don't think for one minute though that you're getting off that lightly - coz you ain't - coz we're back.

And by gawd, we'll be bloomin' well back again ... soon.

You'd better believe it.


** Btw, before we forget ... click on the pics ... then they'll be bigger & better.

Welcome home, Richard. You're a lucky old Brit - that's for sure.

I see you all escaped the mad Muslim Islamofascists again.

Welcome home, Old Brit. You moaning about the British weather made me quite homesick. After a summer of 90-100 degrees every day, with similar humidity levels, (like being imprisoned in a Turkish bath for four months) I long for a drop of cooling English rain delivered on the back of a Force Six north-westerly. Luvely! Strange species, aren't we? Never satisfied. I left Britain partly to get away from the weather.

Boy, am I green with envy. I hope you and your dear Mrs Old Brit loved every minute of it.

Great pics too, Richard.

Glad to see you both back safe and sound and back 'in business'.

I'm looking forward to some more lovely photos -- and some stories.

Welcome back to Blogland, Richard!

Lovely photographs - what a handsome couple!

Here in Blogland we don't need to worry about wind and weather - apart from the occasional hot air spouted by all and sundry, so all that nasty English weather will soon be forgotten. :-)

Welcome back, Richard!

I didn't realize you were back already. That fortnight went pretty fast!

Alarming news in the U.S. Senate today. Check out the headline at Common Dreams, which just went up late this afternoon (5:30pm my time, 8:30pm East coast time.) http://www.commondreams.org/

Looks like The Senate has voted to give Bush the permission he seeks to start a bombing campaign on Iran (and any other country he chooses, I guess).

Lieberman is cheering and raising his fist in the air, in the picture accompanying the story.

I don't dare think about what will happen next.
