A Postcard A Day - Friday 23 Sept 2016 - Friday Smiles

Hi folks! Are you all smiling?. Every cloud has a silver lining, as they say.

Today I have a few smiles to share with you. The big smile for me today is the fact that my stepdaughter is visiting. We drove to Malaga airport to collect her. She arrived at midnight, so it was a late night last night. (It's 3 hours' drive so we didn't get to bed until 4 a.m!). 

This morning we slept late and after brunch we went for a walk in the country to collect figs and wild grapes and whatever nature threw up at us.
These are prickly pears. We didn't pick those as they have barbs on them that hook into your fingers. Nasty!
We did get loads of figs! Fresh figs straight from the tree are delicious! Here Tracey is just clowning about.

This is our haul! Ready to be made into jam!

The postcard for today is a funny one. A typical British seaside card. Remember the saucy cartoon drawings? I don't think they sell those anymore but I received this one as a gift from a blog friend (Angela Radford):
I hadn't noticed the bag of cement immediately, had you?

I'm going to link up with Annie at Friday Smiles. Will you join us? Sorry Annie that I was AWOL last week...

Here are a few funnies that I found on the internet:
This one needs to be read out aloud, (because I thought 'who the heck is Philippe P....?')

And this kitty is enjoying his breakfast!

How about also heading for Rocking Your World Friday, where Virginia shares her week with you. That's where I'm going to link up after Annie's Friday Smiles.

 I hope you all have a fun weekend and a positive week ahead,


  1. Hi Lisca....thanks for pointing out I had missed to add Mr Linky....we must have noticed at the same time cos your message came up while I was adding it lol. I will try to add your link for you.

  3. haha, Phillipe Phillope! Brilliant!
    Have a lovely time with your family... I quite fancy a pair of pink trousers like Tracey's :D

  4. Love seeing your photos and I love that kitty photo! Have a good visit with your step-daughter. And a good weekend. Hugs-Erika

  5. Hi Lisca, great post today. I think that cat has done that before! Have a great time. Sending hugs, Angela x

  6. Thanks for the funnies Lisca and also for showing us the photograph of your step-daughter with the figs. Ooh Figgy jam - delish!
    Hugs, Neet xx

  7. Hi Lisca, how lovely to be able to forage for figs and wild grapes - so more exotic than the blackberries we find here. I so enjoyed the photo of your stepdaughter clowning around and the very English postcard made me chuckle too. The funnies are good too. Have a wonderful weekend. Elizabeth xx

  8. Hi Lisca. I like the fresh figs too, but there aren't too many around here. There are few tees around the village, but one of the locals has an eye on them and the figs disappear almost before they are ripe!
    I though your smile would be the end of your pills like I saw on Facebook.
    The post card made me smile, though I have to admit I didn't see the cement immediately either. Though I've seen it before, I did love the picture of the cats!
    Have a good time with your step-daughter. Kate x

  9. Ah I think you'll find that those saucy postcards still exist at British Seaside resorts - when we next visit I'll try and get one to send you!

    How fantastic to be able to go and pick wild fruit like that - amazing!

    Hope you have a fantastic time with your step-daughter visiting!

    And finally the picture of the cats made me giggle - hope you have a fabulous weekend and week ahead!


  10. Hi Lisca, lovely to have a visitor and someone to help pick the for the fun bit and jam making. Lots of funnies today - I did notice the bag of cement. Have a wonderful weekend with Tracey, cheers Robyn

  11. How WONDERFUL to have your sd'll have to call 2016 The year of the Family, I think!!! Love the 'nature' photos of your walk..... hope the jam cooked up nicely & my fave post card is the French flip flop one.... COOOL!!!
