Over the hill.

No, I'm not talking about The Curmudgeon Inc., though such a statement wouldn't be far from the truth!
Today I walked from our place and over the Nuova Lazio hill - a walk of 1 hour 40 minutes.


The last stage - a down hill walk to The Hutt.

That's Nuova Roma in the distance.

Lower Hutt.

Well done. That's quite a walk.
so, Shelly finally kicked you out then. Did you have a stick and a cloth full of possessions like your namesake Dick Whittington?
Where will you sleep tonight?
Under the band rotunda in the Botanical Gardens is good at this time of year.
I hope you have your double bass with you so you can do some busking. You never know - better still to camp outside the Deaf Foundation.

Gold Card saved me and I caught a bus back. Shelley's sending me out again with a bag of breadcrumbs. I hope the birds don't eat them or I'll never get home.

THE CURMUDGEON ha detto...

Watch out for that.
Also, be careful if she sends you into the woods to visit your granny.

Angry Jesus sometimes acts as a secretary for me when I've had a few wines.

Mission Special Reserve Chardonnay?

He's drinking stuff that I made from water. I call it Clean Grape

Oops, sorry, I thought that AJ was still typing. Bloody cheap wone does that to you!

Richard (of RBB) ha detto...

Wine. This is not going well.

Richard (of RBB) ha detto...

Look, I'm in total control and capable of running the BBB!

THE CURMUDGEON ha detto...

Yeah right.

THE CURMUDGEON ha detto...

I can see that you're under stress.
I can help. DTZ Bill - now TNDTZ Bill has satisfactorily switched over.
Maybe we can lessen the load on BBB if a couple more of your guys changed. On a temporary basis if you want.

Hey Big guy.
How's it going. Sorry I baled out but you know, I could see the writing on the wall.
Seriously, I looked in the future and they were writing things on the wall about you. Nasty things that I don't care to repeat so I thought it best to get out.
No hard feelings I hope.
TCI is a great group. They have really good wine (with labels on the bottles) and provide freshly baked bread with smoked salmon and good salami with cheese at after-work drinks.

The New Different Time Zone Bill.

THE WINE GUY ha detto...

Sorry to hear about the stress Richard.
Well done on selecting that Mission Chardonnay that TC told me about. With a label as well. Things are looking up.
Anything I can do to help just ask. OK?

Richard (of RBB) ha detto...

Where's Robert! Where's Robert? He's our only hope to lead us through these difficult times!

THE CURMUDGEON ha detto...

I'm going to make Robert an offer he can't refuse.
He should amalgamate with TCI (for his own good)

Richard (of RBB) ha detto...

You'd better all believe in God over there!

THE CURMUDGEON ha detto...

Robert was made an offer he shouldn't have refused.

He's now feeding the fishes.

Richard (of RBB) ha detto...

Before or after they started to evolve?

THE CURMUDGEON ha detto...

OK, fair point.
I'll get Humbert to direct him to Jonah's whale.
