What happens when an old man attempts a selfie.

You can't teach an old dog new tricks.
The Curmudgeon is in Napier. He's staying with people but he reports back that there are plenty of toilets in the house. He said that his hosts have a list on their main bathroom in an attempt to stop him, and any other guests, taking a dump in there. (Just like he has at home)

Please fill out this sheet when using this toilet.
There is a pen on a string attached – please wash your hands thoroughly before touching the pen.

Spray. Forgot to do so on first visit. Sorry.

Note: The toilet spray on the window ledge is not there for decoration. Please use it and please use as much as you need.

He said that, at the time of using the main toilet, he had yet to find an alternative.
Okay, the old fella is having a good time. So much so that he decided to take a selfie.

So what does this picture, this selfie, tell you?
  •  The Curmudgeon has had a few Chardonnays and probably started going on a bit about different tastes he was experiencing. It looks like his hosts have seated him outside and have gone inside to talk with Lynn.
  • The hosts have taken the bottle back inside in an attempt to slow him down.
  • He's not in the photo.
This is The Curmudgeon's first attempt at a selfie and, not having a selfie stick, he has got up to take the photo - a common mistake for men of his age.
The Curmudgeon, we can't see you!
This is a photo of where you were sitting. For all we know anyone could have been sitting there. For a selfie to work YOU'VE GOT TO BE IN THE PHOTO!

Ah well, it's good to know that there are plenty of toilets where he is staying.

Just get Lynn to take them. Trust me on this.

I think I can see him peeking through the trees; maybe he toppled over the fence in that small delay as the cell phone made that click noise before the photo.

No, no, we're all here.
We had to endure being taken shopping today by The Old Girl.
I stood outside the shops, leaning on posts and catching the eyes of other blokes doing the same thing.
When The Old Girl came out of one clothing store and we moved off I said to a guy standing outside of the next shop along "good luck".
He smiled and rolled his eyes.

What! I love shopping with Shelley!
