Well people, It's time to say so long. Two weeks vacation awaits me. I'll go back to my summer place in Ardèche for some rest and relaxation. No TV, No Computer. Just some good music and good friends and lots of eats....I'll be sure to have a glass of Rosé or TEN for you all.

Have a nice vacation everyone see you later. 8)

I'm currently spending my summer holidays doing newspaper rounds, but I'm contemplating on going to France once I'm done.

I just got off a weeks vacation didn't do much to hot, did get some riding in on the Harley. I did smoke a lot of marijuana the first three days, then cleaned myself up the last four to get back to work. Damn piss test.

I have another week off in 3 weeks going out to Sante Fe, New Mexico visit my sister and see the new house she just had built. Mabey catch a flight to Oakland, Ca see my grandson and I found out I'll be a grandpa again in November, I hope it's a girl. As long as the baby is healthy who cares.

Don't know yet, thinking of Normandie or Bretagne 'cos I haven't been there yet. Or Paris. I've been to Paris twice, and have never seen the Louvre or Musée d'Orsay.

good choice,

Normandie/bretagne= beautiful part of the country
Paris: there's always something interesting happening there.

Grandad Zardoz..sounds cool to me!!
I'm about the same age as you, but I've got to admit i'm looking forward to when it happens. Please dont think I'm wishing my kids will rush into having kids of their own, cos I dont,(I want them to have lots of life experience first) but I think it will good when it happens.

Have fun you all! Your vacations sound mah-velous!

I went to Spain and England (to see ZPZ) earlier in the year so no real vacation for me for awhile. I AM going to LA to see Barca play Chivas on August 6th. Both my boys live there and will be going ! So a little chance to see them too.

PS I wouldn't mind being a g-ma but I don't think that is in the offing anytime soon! One never knows though.

Hasta Luego!

Not summer here right now and [real] vacation is something I haven't had in a long time, although I am never bored...

Enjoy your sunny ultra-high greenhouse effect temperature vacations everywhere!

Hi, just back this morning from Tenerife after my flight to Glasgow Prestwick Airport was cancelled :evil: (maybe something to do with American aircraft refuelling to go to Isreal) :?
Anyway, had a great time. Weather was great, Food was good, especially the Japanese restaurant.
Went for a swim in the sea and thought i was going to drown, as the tide wouldn't let me back ashore :shock: but i made it and played it pretty cool as some Spanish chicks were watching. :mrgreen:
Now i'm looking forward to going to the Florida keys next April for 3 weeks, staying in Key Largo, do some scuba diving and swim with Dolphins up to Miami, Key west and stuff.
Next time i go in the ocean i'll have some oxygen with me. :lol:

You were caught in a rip current.

Next time this happens, here's what you do: swim parallel to the beach until you don't feel like you're being pushed out to sea anymore. At this point you're out of the rip current, and you can swim back to shore.

Or you could just flail your arms and hope one of the Spanish chicks is a certified lifeguard. You'll probably die, but then again you might get lucky... :P

Well, my summer vacation is almost over. I did a lot of sitting on my ass. I did go to Walmart once. And I helped my in-laws move some stuff.
