Last day of July... my favoirite month!




well i think i have my head back now, well i think its mine!


and here are two very different views... the second is africa, taken from about an hour from here, south and near tarifa on the way down to cadiz... i think its about 7 miles from the tip of spain over, and from our coast line its about 12 miles, something like that, from our old apartment down on the coast, on a clear and cool morning we could see africas atlas mountain range... a powerful view, and always a reminder how close we are too such a huge continent, one i still havent ever crossed over to see! una dia, una dia...

and of course the first photo speaks for itself, taken one of the times i was stood there atop the empire state building, what a fabulous view... what a feeling! oh i wish i could just pop over there now...

work was quiet buy busy unloading lots of things coming in, probably mentioned this month and august everything clothes wise is just a euro, thats just 1€, and would you belive some people say can they have it for less! i suppose they forget we are a charity and infact everything that comes in is for the hospice we support down on the coast for cancer sufferers and their family, we're not just some second hand clothes store to help the people in town buy cheap clothing! ok, yes i'm better now, can you tell!

but hands hurt so enough for now...

Friends are those wonderful unselfish people who give their time, their strength and their hearts to others...

Wow, today when I look at your beautiful photos it seems like you are so far away. I almost get homesick. It's something I don't understand...I guess it seems so far away from the country life I live here in the US. It's awesome that you have so much beauty around you!

DD... every day i thank god i live here now, i waited so long to come here, the countryside in england is also beautiful, very different, very green all year, well maybe not this one with their exreme heat.

when i first moved out here there was a huge sign on the main coast road that i used to pass often, it was actually for a real estate company, it read... 'wake up to the dream' and every time i saw it, i said 'yes i do'! with a big smile on my face! :ª)

I am praying for you with this heat. It has cooled down here. The highs are in the 80 degrees farenheit right now. They say it is going to warm up again but I don't think it will be as hot as it has been. I am praying that the cooling will come your way as well.
Yes, you do live in a dreamy place. I am happy that you have that beauty!

i know its nearly 7pm now, and its still 45! franco just went up on the roof... we think there is a fire somewhere all the helicopters and water planes are out, but not only could he not stand with the binoculars, he just plain couldnt stand it at all! and he has been out in it all day... but at least down on the coast you get the sea breeze!
