October has been one of the very best months this year!
Lovely weather, not cold, not too warm!
A dash of rain but not bad.
Ira and I just came home from a walk,
no need for jacket and I could have had shorts on!
I simply love this place!
I was away 3 night on my Athens trip,
all cats were fed at home twice a day,
– Sorry was seen, but I have not seen her?
Where is she?
She has never left home since she just showed up
here one day in 2014 a bit beaten up!
She was the one who were nutered twice.
Normally when you have a cat nutered,
a small tip of the ear is cut off,
– telling us all the it is nutered.
Sorry did not have that,
so I took her to the vet,
– but she was done!
I feel I have too many cats, but if one shows up,
I can not send it away.
All ca 20 are fed, but only 5 are fed inside.
I spend more money on catfood than on my own food!
Some Skopelos now;
I spoke with a neighbor who has a land behind my home yesterday, he said that the olive harvest is bad. He found very few that was worth to save for “eating” olives.
But that the oil that has been pressed is ok.
I see lots of olives on many trees, but the quality?
So many of the tavernas here in town are closed,
so I was happy to hear that Magali will be open.
They just need to close for a few days,
due to getting clean and ready for the winter.
Korali in Agnondas is still open for this weekend,
and on the 28th, the OXI day,
but will close after that,
I have been told!
I love Agnondas!
My trip to Athens was not pleasure,
here are some gimpes;
I worked many years for Gullivers Reiser,
so when I saw a bar called Gulliver, I just had to visit.
That I did after “my Athen mission” was completed.
I had to have laser treatment in my face and
chest, due to sun damages.
Not in order to get more beautiful, but to make sure
“things” that might cause cancer went away!
It was painful, but the funny thing was the Laser;
I was distracted by the name on the laser
NORDLYS – NORTHERNLIGHT
Anyway the Doc told me that the Nordlys is sold
to a big company in America.
On the flight home;
I used to love the beach, see my arrow, in 1981 and 1982
when I was a “normal” tourist at Skiathos, with Gullivers Reiser!
The beach was runned by the 2 Kostas, the menu was simple
fish they had fished and salad mostly,
and there was plenty of beer, wine and water!
If we were lucky we got a lift back with the Kostas speedboat!
Unfortunately both the one in Skiathos and
the one here are left, the owners are gone!
But one “still alive” on Skyros!
Saw it at the Carnival!
A few cuttings;
For the end of this page, here is my translation;
“For those who cry for everything I prefer those who laugh at nothing!”
Have a lovely rest of the weekend!
From Skopelos with love!
