Oh poor lonely Bob :(

I read your post yesterday, and thought about how you call buses, "coaches", and vacations, "holidays".

Isn't it funny how we speak the same language, but it sounds so much better your way?

Merle said...

Hello Bob ~~ Always very busy at
your blog. Glad your weather is warmer.
I don't know where Micheele and Ryan will be staying in England. They may
have it arranged, they have their isas and tickets. More on them lster
when I know more. Take care Bob,
Regards, Merle.

Merle said...

Hi again Bob ~~ That was meant to be Visas, and later. Sorry, Merle.

Sara,
I’ll go with the poor bit but as I’m sure you know if you have a dog you’re never lonely. My dogs are my best friends and if that makes me a sad case so be it. The thing about buses and coaches is an interesting one. I tend to think of a coach as a posh bus. For instance when you go on a local journey you go by bus, as a rule they are just basic work horses. When you go on a longer trip you go by coach which has more luxury. The one we’re going to Spain on is a Silver Service coach which is a notch above the average coach. It has less seats so more leg room, The seats are recliners and there is a lounge at the rear where you can get refreshments etc.

It is very busy in the garden at the moment, with just seven working days until the open night I am pushing all the time to achieve the best possible result even so things are slipping off the end of the calendar, hopefully I can drag them back on next week.

Jeanette,
I will be over in September! Are you near to Bathhurst cos I could pop on over and see the race, that would be truly mega. I might disappear over to Merle’s place too cos I really fancy some of her home cooking. It sounds so good I’m sure I can smell it all the way over here!

Its a nice blog posted by you. I was seeking for this type of blog that have a fresh and interesting content. I also have a really nice site where you can find salt chlorinator and pool cleaner for swimming pools within minimum prices. Please have a look on it.
