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

Happy fishing.

Celebrated....my 47th Birthday just over a week ago !! N3ve4 been one for " celebrations" of my birthdays but this time on May 9th with the lockdown in force, only family present, daughter and my three grand children, and what a delight it was.
Somehow they know that Pappou loves his wine, I don't know how they know but a few bottles were amongst the presents including ...a pair of loafers and .....white socks. A birthday cake too with 47 !! They got it the wrong way around but it did make me laugh. I have said it many times that I consider my self the luckiest man on earth and it has little to do with money, just a blissful state of mind.
Tim popped in yesterday afternoon, first time since the lockdown. It was a pleasure to see him and have a chat.
I decided that I shall no longer return to the UK for my medial needs so I registered yesterday with a Doctor, a lovely man and a wonderfull caring doctor, my late wife would always insist in seeing only him during her many stays at the Polyclinic which almost occured each time she visited Cyprus because of her then on going cancer. Was rather surprised that shortly after registering with Dr Demetriou, an email arrived from YESI confirming my registration.
Much has changed in Cyprus since my childhood, particularly pleasant is the attitude by my fellow Cypriots towards animals, good to see the continued TV KITA ME STA MATIA. Youngsters have an all together different attitude towards animals from the one I had as a child.
Shorty I shall be fishing again, and once again seeing the glorious sun rise.
Life couldn't be better ..

Good day Milti.
What a nice change to read a 'feel good' post amid all the doom and gloom and arguments on the forum at the moment.
A belated happy birthday to you and may you have many more.

Thank you Richard, much appreciated.
My ...contract was to end shorty after my 97th birthday, I have however extended it to 101. :lol: My late grandfather, father's side, reached 104, he drunk a " lamizana" of red wine daily, that's about 2 and a quarter bottles.!! As a child I used to walk to Theletra from Stroumbi and loved taking my shoes off and jumbing up and down on the grapes,He always made his own wine and always gave me a taste which has been with me for over 60 years. As one gets older, in my own opinion, one accepts that life is not infinite, money no longer rules your life, neither do ......women !!
Grand children most certainly do !! Yesterday my 10 year old, a real srar, insisted in playing Bingo with her new contraction that had all required. Naturaly she won. She ....always does !!
Life couldn't be better for me right now, enjoying every day, not the least concerned about my on going health issues.

Had my very first check up with my Cypriot
Doctor having registered with GESI, a wonderful man that I first met over 11 years ago when he was looking after my late wife when she was hospitalised at the Polyclinic, something that happened each time she visited Cyprus, she thought the world of him, a genuinely caring man and so attentive. He gave me a full check up and spent some time going through my medical history. I shall be having a blood test in a few days and will be back to see him on Thursday. Im glad that I reached the decision to have treatment here in Cyprus rathet than having to fly to the UK every few months.

I had a call from an unknown number yesterday and the caller asked if I was Akis, my childhood name back in the village. I responded and asked who he was. He reminded me of an event that occured in the summer of 1953 , a couple of months before the September earthquake.
Remember he said when we climbed a fig tree and the branch snapped? Of course I do I said, are you Kokos?
I remember the event clearly , I was just over 7 years old and he a year younger.
I piece of the branch penetrated his scull rendering him unconscious , i on the hand had just a few scratches. I remember screaming and crying uncontrollably seeing the blood and my friend lying on the ground , a lady who is still alive today, came to our assistance and soon my friend was put onto a truck and taken to Paphos. He was hospitalized for a month or so and I remember his left front of his head pulsating continually. The earthquake came soon afterwards and I have not seen him since. He is now retired, he was a biologist and specialized in Marine biology working for the Fisheries Dept in Limassol.
We are meeting tomorrow morning and I must admit Im over the moon , haven't seen the guy for 67 years !!......
