Good Morning! It's Friday again. It comes round so quickly!
No postcard today as I haven't received any sofar this week, but I have lots of smiles to share.
It is raining a lot in the UK I heard. Some people have problems with the water running the wrong way....
It's August and the whole village is in holiday mode. Many businesses close for at least a week and this weeks sees the start of the Feria, a week long fiesta. People that grew up here but have moved to the big city for work all come home and the village is full of visitors.
Last weekend there was a Crazy Car Race. Home made vehicles come charging down the high street. No engines allowed, but the street is sloped. Halfway down the street there was a wooden ramp to make it all a bit more interesting:
This three wheeler came charging round the corner and nearly lost his balance:
Starwars was represented and they were firing water pistols! Everybody loved that as it was a very hot evening.
In many countries (Holland is one of them) the government gives new mums everything they need for a newborn. Including food and clothing, hygiene products, nappies etc (obviously sponsered by some large companies). I propose they do something similar when women retire....
I think when you hit retirement
the government should issue
a gift basket containing: chocolate,
wine, pjs, a do-not-disturb sign,
vodka, free replacement glasses
for life (for those you lose or break),
a pet, free Netflix for life, free coffee,
a landline (to find your cell pone),
a volunteer teenager to help you
with your computer and iphone
and possibly George Clooney.
I'm going to leave you with a little teaser. Does anyone know what this is? I have bought it yesterday in a local shop as I needed one...
I'm off now to link up with Annie at Friday Smiles and with Virginia at Rocking Your World Friday. I hope you'll join us there.
Have a great week with many smiles,
