Hmmm

OK, there are 3 ladies sitting across the road drawing our house. Of all the houses they could have picked in The Wood...
Or on this Terrace...

Well...We are the only ones with flowers in the boxes (nice red geraniums). And we do have an attractive urn in the front garden which 9 out of 10 people turn to look at as they walk by. That could be it.

But number 26 has the most beautiful front door I have ever seen in my life. I want to take a picture of it...I want to put a note through their letter box asking permission and promising them a copy if they wanted...
Is that too formal or should I just lean over the gate and snap the picture???

I went into town today. Lots of mileage. Was looking for a crispy white shirt to wear for the graduation ceremony. I was on my feet for nearly 8 hours, and had to pick up some food at the Green Park M&S on the way home.
I approached the queue with an armful of produce - and the nice suited man who was last in line grabbed a basket and held it while I put my food in. His kind deed had me feeling all fuzzy for 5 whole minutes :)

**********

Oooh, my mother just texted me to say she's just been bumped up to Business Class. I'm going to tease her when she arrives.

The sketching ladies are still there...

Hey O, who's your favorite in Wimbledon? I hate overdogs, so I just hope someone bests Federer.

And did you hear that the latest joke is that Baghdad is just like Houston? That thanks to Tom Delay trying to downplay the carnage over there, so now whenever a suicide bomb goes off, the cynical say yep, just like Houston.

Olivia said...

Hey JP! (Bangatank). How was your brother's grad? V is crazy to want to come over to see my grad!

Anyway, for the first time in my life I don't have a favourite player...It is still fun to watch, though.

I have not heard that joke. Did Delay compare them himself? I'm getting out of touch - Is he now in the US house of reps for TX? Also, I thought Houston was becoming a pretty safe city!

You should sit in the window then they'd have to draw you too.

I think you should just take the picture, unless you'd like to get to know your neighbors, then the note would be a nice gesture.

Maybe coming to see you is a little crazy rushed idea.hehehe.

Yes, Delay is the House majority leader, a real dirtbag and he said people should stop focussing on the bad news out of Baghdad, because it was all people see just like news of crime in Houston. But when no one having to do with the Americans is safe anywhere in the city, I don't think the parallel is very accurate. Liberal blogs like Thismodernworld.com have been commenting on his words. I don't know if Houston is getting safer or not.
