Yep - King Uke has legs... and sexy marching ones at that! ;-)
"I realised I'd never kissed a man sober"
Funnily enough, either have I.
See the t-shirt below. Does anyone remember "Facebook?" If memory serves me right, I'm sure that it had something to do with the Internet, but I
just can't remember.
I'm on Facebook :-)
This is more like it! The above shot is of the paddle on the MS Dixie II. It looks like we were going really fast, but this is simply a "trick of the gif".
And what do you think of the wonderful landscape below? Look at the jet-skis. I fancied a go on these, but it never happened.
Talking of water-sports. I just happened to sit down and take a breather in the new Heavenly Village. I say "new"... I've actually no idea when it was built. It certainly wasn't there 16 years ago. I seem to remember having to take a back-road up behind Raley's to get to the cable-cars. Now there's this little shopping block and the cable-cars come right down to the main street. As I sat on the bench admiring the fountain I started to get the feeling that someone was having some fun with me...
Shopping is an inevitable part of any holiday involving my family. I'm not against it, but I did spend quite a bit of time sitting outside the shops watching the world pass me by. I love people-watching. In fact, I'll watch anything given the right circumstances ;-)
I was keen to get my own little memento from this holiday to bring back with me. I would have loved it to have been a new ukulele, but you already know that this didn't happen. Perhaps a tea-towel? I bought a Reno tea-towel. Look what I discovered when I opened the package...
Ha ha, yep... that's no tea-towel! It's a bloody apron! I haven't worn it in anger yet. I'll pick my moment ;-)
In addition to the apron, here are some of the other mementos I ended up collecting on my travels: A Reno miniature guitar; a Tiki-head vase; and a tequila flavoured lolly complete with mummified worm. Not a bad haul!
Here's the last holiday snap I'm going to share with you. How sad! Does this mean that the holiday is finally over? Boo!
To most, this is simply a sign on a pole. To me, it is a fantastic study in textures. Yeah... I'll stop now... ha ha.
