It's too bad we're on different continents because I'd dearly love to go thrift shopping with Jean. He has the luck of the Gods, I swear...
... merci. I pray often to Pentaximus.

Today and yesterday were a "bust" at my thrift store, but that happens a lot.

Maybe something this weekend ...

Ooops, gear talk ... sorry Big P

Here. That's better.

Just take a carton of product off the shelf the next time you're there, and walk out without saying a thing, Steve ... it's obviously a birthright!
Not a good idea...Prince Charles currently owns the birthright.

After next week's All Blacks vs Springboks game, I'll probably need a drink too!


Look at it this way: The only way you will not be on the winning side is if it is a draw. Can happen but not often.


So, "roll up, roll up, everyone is a winner."

Have I shown you this one?
It is a luncheon plate of produce from beautiful North East Victoria.


You have shown a very similar one previously. Forgot which post.

Hut?

I thought y'all lived in igloos up there in Norway.

No, no, no. That's Greenland. Or Canadia or something.

In Norway we have mountain huts/cabins as our official religion. They are the temples where our souls live. "Vacation" around here means going to a remote hut in the mountains, preferably one without electricity or running water, pack a big, heavy backpack, and try to kill yourself by climbing every mountain top in sight.

I'm heading off to the mountains tomorrow morning. No running water for the next week

Yeah, and then some of them are also open as cafes to eat bizarre local foods such as 'græt og bakels', and a place for dripping wet, tired hikers to spend the night. They're staffed by a combination of university students and old, leathery 84 years olds, and I've been the acting Bosslady of one of them for part of the summer.

I've never cared for the Creme de Menthe component, (not even in Depth Charges) but the Amarula is quite good on it's own.

Wiuth all this fence sitting, it's remided me of my last overseas trip. When you travel on two passports, and leave one country on one passport and enter another on the different passport, it confuses some border control staff. Usual questions are: "Where did you come from?" "Why is there no exit stamp in your passport?"

Don't try that in Russia, unless you want to unwillingly extend your stay. That little slip of paper they give you at the border to keep with your passport? Don't lose that either. If you don't have the right number of stamps on that paper... you're screwed. They don't play games.

Guys, I come back and the thread goes radio silent for 12 hours? what is this?

Also, I acquired stick-on googly eyes today. I figured I'd share. Upcoming shenanigans may or may not be proven with photographic evidence.

You've piqued our interest by combining stick-on things, shenanigans, and the avoidance of photographic evidence.... One does wonder what might get adorned with said googly eyes and what sort of shenigans might ensue!

A couple of years ago a limousine carrying Charles and Camilla was trapped in a London street with protestors all around them, one of whom yelled out: "Off with their heads!"

Interesting. With South African and New Zealand passports, the only rule is I have to use the NZ one to enter and exit NZ, and the RSA one to enter and exit RSA. For other countries, I can use either (whichever gives the best options for visas) but the general rule is not to exit a country on a different passport than you entered with. That gets them irritated. Strangely, the sniffer dogs always like me - and I'm not even a smoker. Don't know why, but sniffer dogs love me. I usually get pulled aside for a more thorough inspection - so much so, that I now always take the red line - it's faster!
