Hey denty

The Alps is amazing, so beautiful, not to mention the Matterhorn itself. I will have to take another trip out there sometime  [:)]

Great pic by the way  [:)]

I was never any good at remembering when I was off from school. There were times when I would get up and be ready for school even though it was half term or something like that.

I was a stupid child [;)]

going back a little bit in the discussion... when i was little and i heard my parents walking around in the hall and it woke me up, i'd often jump out of bed and get ready for school. so one night i'm sleeping and i hear my mom in the bathroom and i got up and got dressed and went out in the hallway... and then my mom told me that she was getting ready for bed, not for work. lol

another time i came home from school and i must have fallen asleep... i woke up and my clock said 7:15. school started at 7:10. i ran out of my room. my brother and sister were sitting in their pajamas eating cereal. so i asked my mom if she could take me to school because i was late. she thought i was late for play practice. so we got in the car... left the house... and then i finally figured out that it was seven pm, not seven am. sometimes 24 hour time would be handy...

ha ha. i tried to go to school on a snow day once. i was standing at the school bus stop and the snow was up to my knees, but the road looked ok. i didn't think to check the news. i guess my mom didn't either. the neighbor came out and told me after i stood there for a while...

We hardly get snow here! You have to usually drive a few miles up the mountain for that. Once in a while!

Morning!

Nice piccy! Nice to meet you.. where are the rest of the family.. two boys and wife.. eh! How old are your small boys!

Well, I was with some work friends, and so the family was at home. Don't worry - it's all fair! My wife took a long weekend visiting her brother in Spain a little before, and so I was at home with the boys. They're 2 and nearly 4. Sure I've got some pics somewhere...........

Hey handsome!! [;)]

What's cookin' good lookin'?

Hi Seany - thanks for the comment, but I'm not sure about the only compliment coming from a young man! (Not that I'm trawling for them!) - (Comments that is - not young men) Moving on quickly........

I've done some skiing in the Alps too - which resort did you go to? Risoul is great, with a big snow bowl at the top of the resort. I expect you're a proficient skier?

The Alps is amazing, so beautiful, not to mention the Matterhorn itself. I will have to take another trip out there sometime  [:)]

Great pic by the way  [:)]

Thanks! I er, didn't do it myself! Which are you favourite bits of the Alps?

This was a fabulous walk. If you're interested, the trail started in Zermatt, and went over the Hohbalm and down to the glacier. It was about 20km, and had perhaps 1200m total elevation, so not easy, but not difficult (?). We staarted at about 7 am, had time for an hours kip halfway, and were back in time to watch England lose against Portugal. The Matterhorn has to be the most impressive mountain I've ever seen - I happened to fly over it a couple of weeks ago, and its still impressive from the air.

Hi Karen

Your pic reminds me of a drawing done by Escher.....



Also, a horse fly bite? They hurt like crazy, but I guess you have some pretty exotic species in California, which we don't get here.....

I like escher... I have recently been browsing a lot of his stuff he has some cool things,. I honestly had not seen this one yet! I like the fish! and the black and white! I like how large the fish is depicted against the proportions of the trees reflections!As if the water were acting as a magnifing glass!

OH You mean my bite from the other thread.. might be a horsefly bite? Possibility we have horse several next door and the horse flies can get pretty thick. Do they leave two small holes side by side..????

I found this on horse flies....

http://www.netdoctor.co.uk/ate/skinandhair/204862.html

"For most bites, it is simply a matter of time until the local reaction passes. Meanwhile, you may wish to use non-prescription antihistamines that might reduce itching; be cautioned that these can cause sedation. Another option is to apply low-potency topical steroid cream such as 1% hydrocortisone to reduce inflammation and itching."

Perhaps there were 2 having a picnic? On a kind of first date?

Your, er, incident reminds me of something else.....

What's this?

LOL LOL LOL....HEE HEE HEE HEE!! That is very funny indeed, I was a little leary about that picture I posted and let me tell you it was tres difficult to take the picture and manuever said bite to a position which preserved my dignity as well as getting close enough to show the rash and still be decent!
LOL!

Thanks for the information Denty!

Nice pic!!!  Jealous!  Love to hikeeee!  The weather looks grand too! I think the most challenging hike I had was on a glacier.

Thanks! I want to get back to do some more! I'm planning on going back to Zermatt in September to climb my first 4000m peak (Breithorn) which sounds impressive, but is in actual fact (relatively) simple. It's the first step in getting some snow equipment experience, as I'd like to climb the Matterhorn on or about my 40th. (So this give me 26 years of practice!) [::)]  [;)]
