Whilst appreciating that my perception of Cyprus is that of a ...young 69 year old, I cant help but feeling overjoyed and " overgoosepimpled" each time I travel to Cyprus, the Paradise on earth. Arriving at Paphos airport this Saturday having first requested my daughter to meet me along with the three grandchildren since the arrival is early afternoon.

I always play the " fool" with the kids so I plan to come out dressed as ... Batman :lol:

The kids love it and will give them a laugh!! :lol: :lol:

Once I clear customs and passport control I will put on my costume, swith on my mobile youtube with ...Batman da da da da da da !!

I have to confess that on every trip to Paradise island I become excited and my pulse rate increases dramatically.
This time tomorrow morning I shall be on the plane making my way to Paphos airport.

There is no other place for me that gets me so excited. Christmas with the family, the grandchildren especially. Will stay for 15 days and boy do I look forward to this trip.

My father Xmas costume allready packed in my suitcase, the kids are looking forward to my visit and my antics when there. You see I play the .....fool, the Yeros, make them lough and spoil them rotten !!

My other third arrives on Saturday just for a week, more than ....enough for me !!

I will not be posting much, if anything , from Cyprus so I wish you all a very Happy Christmas and a Happy New Year, I also extend my very best wishes to GR's family, excluding ....him !! :lol: :lol:
Dr, we shall def meet up . Tim I will call you when there, boy Im thirsty :lol: :lol:

Miltiadi I envy you, but you go and have a great Christmas. Any chance of pics of you in that Santa outfit. Would make a great pic with your quote re traffic wardens as a caption.

I spent ten days in July on the beach part of Enaerios.

I have been to Monte Carlo, Cannes, Barcelona, plus many places in the South of France and Italy, and live in Athens where the local authorities pride themselves on their beach front planning.

None of them can touch Limassol for its beach front. Whoever planned it did a superb job keeping pedestrians, cyclists, swimmers, and cars apart, without resorting to fencing or any "offensive" means. I look forward to another visit in the summer. This time I will bring my bike, those rental ones with the Dutch hub brakes are not for me.

The photo is of the beach front sculpture Gennisi, Birth, with children balancing on the stone eggs, participatory art at its best. I thought it was fitting for the season.

The more I visit Cyprus the more my belief of its Paradise status increases. Back yesterday after spending one of the longest stays , 14 glorious days, even had hailstorms a few days back, such powerfully loud thundering and lightning reminiscent of my young days in Cyprus many many years ago.

Preparing now for my permanent return and long awaited semi retirement, after all in a few weeks I shall reach the young age of 70.

Talking to a group of early morning policemen having their morning beverages in an all night café in Limassol, I was asked why I consider Cyprus' life far more attractive than that of London. The answer is simple I said, bearing in mind of course that I don't have the worries of bringing up kids, their education, finding a job and facing a daily struggle to survive, the weather I said, the blue blue skies, the sea , the people, such as you lot- had met the same bunch before- the friendliness and the Cypriot language, Greek it obviously is, but with its own unique and so expressive manner. The beauty of the sunrise, the sunsets that can be so magnificent.

I do of course base my love of Cyprus in the fact that I was born there, spent my first 15 years growing up, have gorgeous Cypriot grandchildren that give me an enormous amount of pleasure. I do spoil them rotten of course, isn't what a pappou is supposed to do after all ?

I was impressed by the number of pets around, well looked after and well groomed, alas my daughter's dog had gone gone missing since late March, Daisy her name a friendly gorgeous pointer that had recently undergone an operation being left with a large scar on her tammy . My daughter and grandchildren are so distraught, they are doing everything to find her, I helped by searching areas that some callers in response to my daughters " campaign" on face book, even the Cyprus Mail that printed a photo of Daisy.

We all think that she may have been taken by a hunter, she has such a strong looking body and looks so healthy.

Daisy has been in the family since a puppy, much loved and cared for, a happy dog and a very friendly one that would not hurt a fly.

We tried numerous kennels, appealed to the local municipalities, put posters in numerous locations, sadly to no avail.

Enough of that now, I must now concentrate on my impending permanent move to Paradise Island.

Many of you would have friends or acquaintances that hunt. Maybe someone somewhere has recently acquired Daisy. A reward will be offered for any information leading to finding Daisy.
See what she looks like on facebook appeal.

Hi Tim
Yes from Ayios Athanasios. The dog was always let lose to run around, mostly she would go to the park opposite the house but always returned.

Being a friendly dog she would wag her tail at anyone.
