I took this with a 600 mm lens on a 32C day with heat shimmy. At least 2 miles out.

Re: The Mallorca Squad

The same day I found San Miguel with lemon on tap!
It actually is a nice drink.

But that's not for the perfect man
Maybe for a monkey who stays out 2nm not to be seen
in his saltiness

A Shandy, Radler or Panache from the tap could make a San Miguel drinkable
But how to call it in Spanglish?

Re: The Mallorca Squad

Taking a 4:45am trip to the boat delivering some hinges for a project.
Sounds like a long trip but its only 10 mins. Will fit them, have some coffee and them one of my lovely catch up naps. Will be back here by 8:30am and the day begins.

Re: The Mallorca Squad

Bad day at the mill here today. Got into the new clinic office and had a phone call from the blood screening office regarding a patient, a family member, who is showing positive for a terminal condition. Been like a bear with a sore head snapping at people all morning and generally being a dick. Still have to tell the person concerned. Will go around tonight.

I dont normally react like this however other recent major personal events have contributed to an unsettled mental state and this put it all in perspective. What I have to deal with personally, whilst unjust and costly, is nothing to this.

The sense of anger and irritation with everything has burst, and now its a matter of dealing with the practicals. I apologise to anyone that got in the crossfire this last 2 weeks.

time to be the Doctor and caring family member again.

Re: The Mallorca Squad

Weavis. You need a cuppa coffee to clear the cobwebs between your ears.

I would also ingest a scone or something with raisins.

Remember to say "I am a good person, and gosh, people like me!"
