I'm a bit embaressed to post fotos now I know Jim was a professional! :shock:

These are the most usual kind of step ladder in Greece. Workmen often stand on the top, though not quite like this. With one foot either side on the next rung down workers can walk the ladder.

A one-legged bagpipe busker I met in the market today. He played quite well and the bagpipe had a nice tone.

The town river today. The river is almost dry this year and we are expecting drought this year.

I'll bet you have some crazy-good rapids when that river is full!!!!!!! Rafting, anyone? Or canoeing? Or kayak? I've never kayaked, but I do love canoeing and rafting. Although I risk my life less now that I'm a mother.

BEAUTIFUL pictures, Adrian.

Now you are talking my love ... canoeing in fast water .. oh yeah. I have flipped more than once ... lost clothes and shoes before I decided to tie them down at the start ... and not after the fact. :shock: :D

Not a pro photographer Adrian ... weddings and portraits are easy ... they are just skill ... what you put up is Art ... and a very good eye for composition. :D

Jim
You are just tooooooo humble! ;) The truth is out now. Please post the longhorn pix when you have them.

You'll remember the camera you 'sent' Susan. We'll I saw one that had been converted to digital using the sensor of a flatbed scanner and produced 190 Megapixel fotos!!!!!

Well, Les, I appreciate that. :D I'd probably miss you guys from the heavenly portals as well. But one has to live one's life with courage. I teach this to my kids. And common sense. ;) I also teach this to my kids. One day my kids will be the ones out there in canoes--rock climbing--probably parachuting, I don't know. And then--well, I just don't want to know about it.

These days the most dangerous it gets is when I kick the guitar into overdrive at praise team practice. :mrgreen:

Don't anybody tell me to grow up. At this point it ain't going to happen. Besides, who on this board is really "grown up?" I mean, we play pennywhistles at traffic lights, for crying out loud!
:whistle2:

What about girls? Um...something about the difference between women and girls....something..something...curls!!

Uh....could some poet help me out here?

But if it rhymed, toys would be the more appropriate word. I carry a purse, but nobody gets to call it a purse. It's a gear bag. It carries a pda, an mp3 player, a camera, flash drives, extra picks, extra memory cards, extra batteries. Oh, and headphones. Don't know how you guys get along without a "gear bag."

Carry something similar into work every day - contains measuring tape, water bottle, sandwich, tape of various sorts, jar openers, etc - it's called a backpack. Used to carry lots more stuff in it, but don't need as much at my current 'stationary' job.

My husband carries a lunch box with all his stuff in it.
The lunch box turned into a bigger cooler...no food stuff no beverages.
His work gear. He is an electrician. Eh hem, official title Journeyman Wireman.

For me when it comes to things of adventure. I am more cautious now that I am older. Last injury cost me over a thousand dollars in back repairs. Adjustments. I think one of my greatest fears as a musician is injuring my arms and hands and feet and such....
