Thank you all for your wishes.
We are having a brilliant sunny day today, summer is just around the corner it seems.
I must admitt I found this year's winter not at all pleasant, it just doesn't suit Cyprus, but at least we have had plenty of water.
I look forward to commencing my island explorations soon, so many places to visit, quaint little villages where traditional life still exists, will also visit the occupied parts, to me they are still part of my birth country,
besides I must see my old friend Halil.

My condolences too.
On a different note how do you feel seeing so many people of your age passing away?
I remember my grandfather was really terrified showing my mother the funeral announcements in the newspaper every other day,
telling her "do you remember him/her? S/he died!"

I am at the age of everyone getting the first health alarms. I can't count how many people of my age started having problems, be it hard deceases, sexual difficulties etc. Myself get tired doing manual work for more than 2 hours. Two years ago I could do 6 hours e.g. changing the tiles at my back yard, with no problem...

An interesting question, one that I regularly discuss with my younger brother, 71 in 3 weeks time, I will be 73 on May 9th. Indeed so many of our own age or slightly older are passing away, we tend to concur on the only reality of life which can only be death.
We are very different in many ways not least that he is religious attending church every Sunday and on any other occasion while I , having discovered the truth years ago, do not have the slightest doubt that religion is simply a mental illusion, a mythological concept handed down from generation to generation, an absurd, in my opinion, concept that blinds billions of people the world over offering only hope and much air. Im happy that I do not consider death as a horrid experience since no one ever escapes. My mother passed away 65 years ago but she is very much alive in me, Im a part of her, my children and grandchildren too.
Im diabetic, I also have Prostate cancer, do I lose any sleep over it. Hell NO. I live my life enjoying every single day, still have my faculties, still enjoy my wine and still love the ...fairer sex!!!
Besides, I have negotiated my Miltexit at the fine old age of ... 97 !! Deal or no deal !!

Teresa isn't my type , firstly she is far too old....for me !! Secondly I don't particularly like silly old cows !! A first class ....Plonke..ress. Look at the mess she has created, " Brexit means Brexit " Silly old cow !! She keeps telling us that " its the will of the British people " Here was I thinking that I was British too, I did not vote leave you stupid woman neither did the vast percentage of the British electorate.
Talking about Brexit, in my opinion the UK is committing suicide, a financial one but at least we can now ....make our laws !!! What a fucking mess.
