Pat said...

Scarlet; it did help being skinny. Alas!

fourdinners said...

So you're surname is Bligh?...;-)

Pat said...

4D: yup!

Marvelous story which points to being judicious about who gets to go on holiday with you. An otherwise great trip can be ruined with the wrong companion(s).

Cheers.

Pat said...

Randall: it wouldn't have been the same without them;)

Jimmy said...

Is there no end to your talents Pat? Seriously... your oul fella is such a lucky man.

LL Cool Joe said...

I'm impressed! Great shades. :)

Must read your book when it comes out !
I am impressed by all you have done in your life... I feel quite the slacker.

cheers, parsnip

Pat said...

Jimmy: but did you read the writing?

LLCoolJoe: praise from the master:)

Parsnip: you are NOT a slacker and you have more time left:)

Jimmy said...

I did hen, fascinating, wonderful stuff, the thrill of the open water has been well and truly sold to me by you.

We must take tea together my dear, perhaps even a small libation before the sun is over the yard arm perhaps?

Pat said...

Jimmy: I look forward to reading about your adventures on the water. I'll keep the kettle in the boil and remember where I've hidden the whiskey.

Jimmy said...

My dear Pat, that will be a date I shall indeed keep! Hands where I can see them though doll. That beautiful smile of yours would charm the fillings right out of my back teeth given the chance.

Pat said...

Jimmy: here's something I've been saving for you:
Latest casualty of the recession - the Origami club had just folded.

Loved your latest - read it to MTL who was impressed.

Jimmy said...

Hahaha.. good one hen.

Luna said...

Sometimes I think you have lived/are living an amazing life. Happy to have met you. You inspire me. :)

Nea said...

From that angle, it looks quite high and with the swell of the sea, I'm glad I wasn't the photographer on this one!

Pat said...

Luna: thank you Luna. Life is fairly docile these days. No bad thing;)

Nea: it was taken by a natural born sailor. Unfortunately when it was really rough and photogenic we were usually hanging on for dear life.
