I had the window open while making my last reply and didn't post it right away as I was doing other things, so just seeing your post now. You might like this song. I will listen to yours in a few minutes. I never had children either, but I'm great with them!

Happy Anniversary to you and Mrs. Shep! How wonderful to be celebrating so many years together! We'll have to go to the nearest tavern and have a party. Drinks are all on Gordi.

It's my anniversary today - Mrs. Shepherd & I have been married 16 years today.


Oh! 16 years of marriage! Seems like true love right there! My congratulations to you! You enjoy now your malts and burgers. I have wine and thinking of making hot dogs


I am so happy reading about that from you, and what BASSPLYR wrote earlier. So beautiful, pure and romantic.

Feels strange huh? I did something similar (a much smaller distance than you though!) 25 years ago together with my Dad of all people. England was in a major recession, parents had just lost the shop they rented and I was made homeless.

We left England with a one-way ticket to a new country and 100 quid in cash and an agreement that English friends would collect us from the bus depot and house us free for our first month or two. Within a week or two we had work and within a couple of months we had our own flat.

Oh, and we didn't speak a single word of Dutch either. (It took me several years to learn it, the hard way lol. I never studied due to working shifts, I learned it by ear. Hours and hours of listening to Dutch people talk around me at work, asking the odd question (in English) when necessary)

I never looked back but then I hated England and couldn't wait to leave.

The only thing that disappointed me is that after a while, I never heard from so-called friends again. But hey, I was the one that left and they couldn't be bothered to make the effort. Fine by me!

Oh, and one other thing. I don't know if you have any strong physical or emotional connection to certain food products but the most difficult thing in the beginning was missing all the stuff we had been used to buying/eating. To my extreme horror there was no damn Marmite anywhere to be found! The bacon here sucks and the meat seemed quite different too. It takes time but for my family at least, it was worth it in the end. They all went back to England years ago due to family illness. I ain't never going back, not even in a box.


I won't wish you luck as that implies a chance of failure so instead I will say

Good onya cobber, I hear the shrimps are ripper and it'll be a piece of piss, no worries! London to a brick, apparently.

I hope I got that right.

BOOM!

The wine kicked in, instantly from sober mode to a good buzz. Getting stuff all political and ideological here. But... "Don't preach to the choir" you already know this here at the shed.

Thanks Night, and Fin!
True love, I suppose. Mostly it's a lot of work and the simple agreement to stay together through whatever comes. The other thing that has really helped is learning to point a finger at myself first, even more so than just learning to say "sorry." You can say sorry in such a way as to mean, "Well, I'm sorry it happened but it was really your fault." That's not helpful, as you might imagine.

But when you learn to take a step back and legitimately ask, "What could I have done differently? How did what I said or did make her feel?" you tend to avoid exacerbating problems.

Of course, when all else fails, I resort to wine, chocolate, and flowers.

Thank you for your suggestion to change the rules and make my own game.

You just turned an Elf into a sci fi character. OMG! Noooo!



In that case Night, you would be considered a short Vulcan.

As long as she can do the Vulcan mind-meld I'm sure she will protect us all....

ETA Otherwise we should paint her green in the hopes of distracting Captain Kirk!

Crikey, I wasn't suggesting anyone sneak in with a paintbrush while she is showering or anything! No, just a little something in the shampoo should work fine. Shhh...!

...so, if you are having technical issues with your turboencapsulator it may be best to remove the connecting wires between the unilateral phase detractors before cleaning the spurving bearings and pentametric fan. Some say it prevents injury.

Hope it helps and lemme know if it works.

For years I wished I could live in England. Just hearing those accents all day...I'd be in heaven!

I have to say that I admire you for learning another language. I know to some people that might come easy and even if it didn't, they can still learn. I could never get by in a Country where another language was spoken. I have tried to learn other languages and picked up many words and phrases, but could never converse with anyone. I can't seem to retain things in my little brain.

Good morning! (6:20am)

I just woke up after deep sleep. I don't actually know what happened last night, i mean, i remember everything clearly and i was not heavily drunk. I sipped that wine, and it kicked in as i wrote and shared the song, and after that i went to bed and instantly fell asleep. Usually it does not go that way. Maybe my alcohol tolerance is lower now, because i was several days without any drinks because i thought it would be better to go to the lab to give blood tests when there are some sober days before that.

I will make my usual 2 mugs of dark roasted coffee now and then i will be back, a few posts have appeared during my sleep and i want to respond.
