Hello, world travelers.
Here's our newest work. . .
Our daughter is home from her trip to Ireland, Wales, and England. I picked this picture to illustrate her trip because it's one of the few pictures she brought back on her camera that wasn't of an ornate doorway or a close-up of her breakfast. And it seems that every picture that she's in, we're getting the thumbs up. "Is nice!"
One of her many adventures included an emergency landing to hand over a drunk passenger to the authorities. Apparently he had made some threats to the flight staff, which was a bad idea even before 9/11. The pilot was clearly agitated and landed a little rougher than usual, causing more delays while the mechanics inspected for damage.
She also brought back some cockney slang she learned on a ferry from some bloke. For example, if he were to tell her to "take a butchers at a picture of him on the apples in a brand new whistle and titfer," that would be asking her to take a look at a picture of him on the stairs in a brand new suit and hat. It all makes perfect sense.
Apple and pears...stairs
Whistle and flute...suit
Tit for tat...hat
Someone should translate the bible.
