I thought of you Pops, you and the rest of the doggies/doggers/dogists! There was a lovely pub where we stayed, just above the harbour. Had really nice food (proper Billy Bunter portions), real fish and chips, good beer, pool table, dart board, open fire and they welcomed pooches. In fact, we were the only table that didn't have a dog sitting under it...

If you're ever down that way, check it out. My other half lived on chips and pale ale for a week and is now on lettuce and trill smoothies for the rest of the month...xxx

25 years ago, I graduated from a fantastic small liberal arts women's college in Columbia, Missouri. We just finished our reunion, and I'm so over the moon because of all of the love and re-connections. And I am super goddamn hungover. We are not 20 anymore, how did we just manage going out every night till 2 in the morning? Except that when we get together, we become young again. :Hoorah

Now visiting my mom, who is also in Missouri, and I'm also fortunate to always have lots of high school friends to get together with here. The lovefest continues. No one knows you like your oldest friends. <*>

Tiki bar mini-tour with m'ladyfriends on deck this month and next. Lucky to have one of the best in the country (seriously, by all accounts) here in town, Foundation. If I could live there I would. But Three Dots and a Dash and Lost Lake in Chicago are calling my name (been to the former but not the latter), and Latitude 29 in NOLA (can't handle the anticipation)! Tiki culture is a favorite thing of mine, the aesthetic and history. And ummmmmm, yeah, the drinks as well. :P I'm slowly but surely knocking off the bars nationwide, and always getting ideas to incorporate into our home tiki bar!

I am visiting Sheffield tomorrow for a couple of days. I will be at the Trades Council Conference but hope to find time to have a look around the City. :)

I am back at work Monday for 2 days, then will be free, taking redundancy and planning a break before I start looking for work again. <*>

I'm with you, with the dolphins. Not so keen on the badgers. Pop round mine. We think we may have a set trying to move in. I've gone from a slightly out of control garden, but with the normal bit of grass and a few trees and shrubs on a bank to the trenches in WW1. Big holes dug everywhere, not to mention the shit!!!! I cut the grass at the weekend and fell down a shallow tunnel. We have a farm up the back, so I went to see the farmer. He has sonic deterrents and sprays 'scoot' in the affected areas. So I got online and ordered some. I've seen badgers around, but never in the garden. Maybe they are getting very brave, or know that I'm more than a bit nervous of them. Bad badgers. On a happier note, we did see some harbour porpoises and sea otters in Hull a few years ago, and a massive basking shark and her baby in Salcombe. Quite beautiful. I was so excited, I dropped the camera and took a photo of my foot. So Cornwall for dolphins, mine for badgers and wine.

Last year, on one evening, we saw two badgers, a dolphin, an adder and a wild pony, not to mention millions of rabbits. Where we go has no phone reception, no internet, nothing so I only hope the world behaves itself while we are gone...x
