Haven't listened to the newer ones yet. Was lucky enough to go and watch one being recorded (bats vs flies, not the best subject like) and it was hilarious - so much that didn't (and couldn't) go in.

Meant that in a good way, Debs.

Boogying, conservatory, music of an unspecific sort, and the glorious mental image of crows doing banzai assaults on buzzards.

Might not be possible to better the wide range of joyous imagery there, i.e. thread closer...

Ah yeah course!  Like I said mate, surreal 😂

Went out for St. Paddys day with two of my best mates (70 and 68 now) and it's my mates birthday.

There were actually a few little things happened - including a fella using some shady form of Ju-Jitsu trying to tip me up for some reason (I was going to explain why his technique wasn't working, but then though he might use it to actually tip me up rather than looking like a blert) - Also some dickhead kid and about 20 of his mates blasting music on his phone and being generally abusive. But little things like this mean nothing and you move on :)

Went on to have a great night, wonderful catch up, bit of Karaoke and loads of ale.

Triffic night in Liverpool. All good. :)

It was quite funny. Was in the Crown and he took umbrage at me standing in the 'No serving' bit

I explained to him that I was just stood there waiting for people to get served and then I'd move up and he went 'Right' and then decided to throw me out of the pub. He wasn't a bouncer, just a drunk shithouse that probably weighted about 11 stone soaking wet. He tried to first grab my shoulder and pivot me to the floor, so I just moved my feet slightly and he kind of grunted and went a bit red. Then he had a crack at sweeping me and his little tiny legs weren't even positioned correctly, so as he swept and I didn't move (Well moved into it slightly), he kind of bounced off and nearly fell over. Then he didn't do anything and then left.

Pretty amusing. Just glad he tried it on me rather than someone that might have got angry with him. Saw him later on as well with my mate who'd already sussed him out. Probably harmless. Probably has done a year or two in (I'm guessing) Ju-Jitsu, but his form was all wrong. Trying to pick up a 19 stone lad with just your forearms is never going to work.

Wow!  We've had some pretty big ones here too so far and they nest in the banking of one of the borders so it's amazing watching them going in and out all day in the summer 😁

Maldives. 🌞

Crosby is nice, but not quite that exotic.  :D

I've got my hammock up in a coconut tree and there is a big crab walking past that looks like a chieftain tank. Lots of iguanas too.

In about half an hour the flying foxes will take flight too. It's amazing.

I've given the ones here a wide berth initially as I wasn't sure how friendly they might be. They seem ok though now.

Bumble bees are brilliant though. My mum has them going in and out behind the shed in summertime. They are nice to just sit and wayon a sunny afternoon.

We've just been on the jetty tonight watching sharks, trigger fish and an eagle ray. A shark swam past Mrs S. yesterday while she was snorkelling. 🦈

I'll be keeping a close eye out for anything armed and dangerous.  :thumbup

Like yourself, we enjoy nature, so this place is heaven. We were watching the flying foxes just as the sun went down. It's brilliant just watching the wildlife both in and out of the water here.

You have to grab the good moments where you can, don't you. God knows we've all been to hell and back in recent times with the pandemic and cost of living etc. 😎👍

Tell you what, though. My Mum's friend died at the beginning of February and I've adopted her dog. We miss the little guy like mad.

I can only imagine how amazing the wildlife must be in a place like the Maldives and yes you definitely have got to enjoy every moment you have.

Whose got the little fella whilst you're away then mate?  It must have been a wrench to leave him.

Going abroad once a year used to keep me going. It was always something to look forward to. The pandemic ended that, as it did for the majority of us. This is our first since 2019. A special one for my 60th off Mrs S. It's not like we could afford this all the time. It's a one-off. It's been a bugger of a few years, so now it's time to relax for a short time. I'm grateful for the opportunity to do so here.

My Mum and brother are looking after the little man. Yes, it was a wrench to leave him because we'd really begun to bond. I didn't want to have to then disappear on him again, but there was no option. At least he knows my Mum though, and knows her house.

Funny enough, I had a dream last night that he was being looked after by So, Howard Phillips off RAWK. We called to pick him up when we got home and Howard lived in a house in Crosby that had an LFC sportswear shop upstairs.  :D

I'm a bit of a home bird so don't really holiday but I know what you mean about relaxing and unwinding after the last few years.  We've been doing that for 2yrs since we moved 😂

As for the dream..... it's weird as hell how they can be so graphic and real 😁

Well we drove from Liverpool to not far from where you live at the end of last summer for a few days peace. You're in a nice place for that. All year round too. We loved it there and might go back later this year.

Regarding that dream. Howard was as nice in that as I imagine him to be in real life. So was Mrs P and their daughter. Although I don't even know if they actually have a daughter.

I'll let you know if any RAWK regulars turn up in tonight's dreams. 😃

Going abroad once a year used to keep me going. It was always something to look forward to. The pandemic ended that, as it did for the majority of us. This is our first since 2019. A special one for my 60th off Mrs S. It's not like we could afford this all the time. It's a one-off. It's been a bugger of a few years, so now it's time to relax for a short time. I'm grateful for the opportunity to do so here.

My Mum and brother are looking after the little man. Yes, it was a wrench to leave him because we'd really begun to bond. I didn't want to have to then disappear on him again, but there was no option. At least he knows my Mum though, and knows her house.

Funny enough, I had a dream last night that he was being looked after by So, Howard Phillips off RAWK. We called to pick him up when we got home and Howard lived in a house in Crosby that had an LFC sportswear shop upstairs:D

Hope it wasn’t one of those anxiety dreams when you left your house just wearing a string vest? :o

Weirdly I was sorting out some of our Stephen’s LFC memorabilia yesterday as part of an extensive spring clean. Weird or what?

You'll be glad to know I was fully clothed in this particular dream. 😃

So, you do sort of have a sports shop upstairs in your house then.    ;D

Well we drove from Liverpool to not far from where you live at the end of last summer for a few days peace. You're in a nice place for that. All year round too. We loved it there and might go back later this year.

Regarding that dream. Howard was as nice in that as I imagine him to be in real life. So was Mrs P and their daughter. Although I don't even know if they actually have a daughter.

I'll let you know if any RAWK regulars turn up in tonight's dreams. 😃

You'll have to let me know when you're coffee so we can meet up for a coffee 👍
