where are you?

Hot at 7 am...Mary and Albert watching rabbits

I couldn't sleep and was up by quarter to seven. It was almost too hot for the older dogs to have a walk even then, so I left them to potter in the garden whilst Mary and I did our power walk circuit .
I've made a pack lunch of fruit salad and ham  and Mary and I will go for a picnic on Colwyn Bay beach later to watch the world go by.
I caught up with Mr A on the way for eggs. ( I will have to call him Mr A as although we have chatted for a few years now, I still dont know his name)  he complemented me on posting the Keala Settle  video yesterday and asked just how he could comment on a post thinking only ' invited' people could say anything.
" you have commentators from all over" he observed " I like the thought of that!" 

So for Mr A, who is not au fait with bloggers and blogging, please tell him where you are in the world!

  11. Jervis Bay which is on the South Coast of New South Wales in Australia. It is about 2 hours drive from Sydney.

    It was a lovely 23.7C (74.66F) degrees during the day but has now dropped down to a frosty 12C (53.6F).

    Now I want to know what temperature John thinks is hot, as my idea of hot is 35-40C (95-104F). :)

  13. Mr A, it is a puzzle to me as to why I read the blog of some old gay bloke in Wales. I expect it is because his blog is very good and I really like it. I am in Melbourne, Australia and I don't believe I have any Welsh connections, in spite of one of my brothers being named Evan. I recently wrote about a Sunday outing in our car, where we saw an abandoned property after the owner, one Taffy Jones, died. I expect there is much Welsh history in Australia. Weather check here in Melbourne. 18.5 outside, a little cloud and dry. 22 inside without air conditioning on.

  19. Howdy from Coastal Southern Texas, USA. It's 5:01 a.m. as I type, 6 May 2018, just before dawn on Sunday. I can still see a few stars in the dark out the back window.

    It's warm and quiet now. Missed the Cinco de Mayo parade yesterday evening due to work, but still got off early enough to make the bars and parties and have a good time. It was a lot of fun hanging out with friends, making new ones, laughing and dancing the night away.

    I just got home thirty minutes ago; was about to go shower then sleep, but seeing as it is Sunday, I'm just cooking my first batch of fried chicken. Three more batches to go, then I can shower and go to bed.

    Why fried chicken now? Because it's Sunday, and Sunday is fried chicken day. I grew up eating fried chicken at the weekly Sunday family and friends midday feast. And though it's been many years since I've been back home to the distant, far off, remote, rural coast, I still make fried chicken on Sundays, because it reminds me of home, and it makes me feel good to share it with company and watch them enjoy it. Or I eat it by myself, taking a moment to think of all the loved ones I've shared a Sunday fried chicken meal with, smiling at the memories and wishing them well, wherever they are now.

    Sorry for the rambling. Still have some wonderful buzz from the margaritas and jello shots. Have a great week, y'all! Cheers!

    2. I agree with Dustbunny. No fried chicken will ever be as good as the ones my grandma made for the family every single Sunday afternoon when I was growing up.

  130. Good evening, Mr A, John and fellow followers. It's a cool morning here is Wellington, New Zealand, but promising to be a fine day. I have to run around after a very active just-turned-3-"Don't-help-me!-I-can-do-it-myself" grandson today, so we are heading to a wonderful play park where I hope he'll run off some energy.

    Enjoy your day, wherever you are.
    Cheers
