On my daily visits to the cafe in Enaerios , close to my " second home" , the Enaerios pier where I fish each morning, I have made a number of friends and not least three police officers with whom we exchange innocent jokes. I did express that at times I get a little restless in ....doing nothing and also that ....money is ...running out. They are in the Rapid Response Unit, Άμεση Δράση.
Jokingly I asked if a position was perhaps available for a young 73 year old with immense experience in issues requiring a ...rapid response, one such being in hooking a fish or running to the nearest store to restore my ...wine stock
We will ask they told me and since their boss is the son of an old childhood friend I thought my chances were promising.
A couple of days later, saw them again and gave me the good news. The boss wants me to attend an interview prompto!!
One condition though. My grandfather and grandmother must be present at the interview :lol:
Just when I imagined my self as an Άμεση Δράση officer. !
Well, you can't win them all !!
Realizing that age is catching up with you is indeed a virtue.
Still, I consider my self as the happiest and most contented man on earth. Still have my hair and my teeth are deffinately mine, have the receipt to prove it :lol:
Isn't life wonderful when you longer have to work !!

It's been some time since my last post on this here thread, not that there has been an absence of any " intetesting" event on the contrary so much has happened over the last 3 months or so not least my oldest 80 year old, brother who arrived on January 26 and stayed for 3 weeks.
He has apparently decided to close down his UK business , but not retire, instead he is very keen on starting a business here in Limassol. !! To my total amazement he , quite seriously,informed me that he wishes to ....open a restaurant.!! I want you wirh me he said, we put in 30g each employ staff and sit back and enjoy the .....profits !!
You are crazy I told him, an 80 year old and an almost 74 yo running a restaurant ??
The guy was deadly serious !! Found a closed down restaurant at the Molos, started negotiating and even gave it a name. He is a restless guy, always had an eye out for the next pound coming into his coffers !! Eric I said, count me out. Im done with business, besides im now more interested in ....fishing than business.

I have been here now for almost 3 years, the best , by far, years of my life. I still enjoy each day more than the previous one. I can't wait for those gorgeous hot sunny days, the grandchildren keep me busy, they have become experts in " manipulating" me at an instant. Its true what they say , age brings wisdom and fulfilment , no stress no worries just laze about doing bugger all.

Time does indeed fly , more so when you are having a good time !!
It is exactly three years today since coming to Paradise Island, the best decision that I ever made in my life. No longer rushing to get back to work, that sunken feeling each time I left Cyprus to go back to the UK gone for ever. A permanent holiday and so so satisfyingly amazing!!

Its also 14 years since I joined the Cyprus forum, give or take a few times of been banned for using .... the word stupid to describe someone.

Its time for me to take leave , a temporary one, from the forum, and will not be back untill the " lockdown" is over and hopefully I shall not read General's description of the virus being Chy-na !!
The forum needs some fresh blood, anyone watching it might just think that we are all fucking mad.
I wish you all a safe passage through this difficult times and hopefully the end of the current crisis will soon arrive.
Happy Easter to all.

Perhaps if you didn't fill every thread with foul-mouthed insults of anybody you disagree with, people that find this forum might be inclined to stay...? :roll:

Just sayin' :wink:

Looking forward to hearing that you're back on the pier early mornings again. And further episodes of your adventures.

Stay safe. :wink:

Firstly let me express my admiration at the high level of professionalism and competence of the Cypriot authorities in their exceptional handling of the measures imposed in dealing with the Covid 19 pandemic. Whether one considers this virus as one that required extreme measures or not its immaterial, the fact of the matter is that the World Health Organization has deemed it necessary to issue guidelines to the entire world. It seems that the absolute idiot of a President, Donald Fuck , has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that he is not by far qualified to lead the American nation let alone the free world.

Since May 4th I have been fishing on the pier , such a relaxing activity.
On Monday May 4th, first day of relaxation of lockdown, I arrived at the pier at around 6.15 am. My first catch was a Kounellos, Puffer Fish, poisonus as everyone surely knows. I had been on the pier for less than 30 minutes when three policemen arrived on their pushbikes and immediately begun ordering us off the pier because they told us that fishing is only allowed from the paralia !! A few anglers argued I did not, I obeyed the " orders" and folded up.
On my return home I called the Fisheries dept requesting clarification , I stated that the pier surely is very much a part of the paralia , and that I thought the policemen were mis informed. They concurred !
On the following day I arrived on the peer, but this time I wasn't prepared to obey any " orders " having established that it was perfectly legal to fish from the pier ...

They’ve been talking about you, behind your back Milti. I warned them you were returning. Would they listen? Would they listen?? :evil:

Welcome back. TBH we’re all sick to death of Paphitis and GR pining over your absence.

Happy fishing.
