Hi Mysty,🙂 I am not allowed any grapefruit products so will I get to keep that 90%?😃

 

And you'll probably get to keep that 90% and add another 10% on to that! 😁

the pink kind goes very well with with Myers rum:classic_love:

 

Now that sounds appealing!  And probably the only way that I could possibly handle grapefruit!  We are not usually on speaking terms.  😁

There are many wonderful folks in the Cooler Bar that I am hoping to sail with at some juncture.   @zqtchas, I think we could probably finish one another's sentences.  Not necessarily the way either of us intended and yet a conversation with guffaws of laughter to make our bellies ache! 😁

I prefer it with Tanqueray No. 10 and Fever Tree Mediterranean tonic. Sublime!

Greek gin new to me.  Glad you enjoyed it Lois.

A favorite Greek restaurant nearby provided a free small glass of ouzo at the end of every meal with the bill.  Sadly, recently closed.  

Need to try the gin sometime soon.

The Ouzo made it easy to pay the bill & add a generous tip 🙂

Myster suffers from the same issue with heights.   When we were in Shanghai for our son's wedding his soon to be father-in-law took us up to the tallest building there at the time.  There was a glass floor in front of the windows on the top floor.   Myster did not get much further than the elevator that carried us up.

It was just seeing that tiny figure up there - I have been to the base of the statue, no problem.   The same applies looking at people sitting on a tiny ledge on the side of a mountain.  Yet, at 18 I climbed Snowdon the 'hard' way, and did some rock climbing.  I am afraid old age makes you a bit of a 'wuss' (maybe this is just an English expression, but you know what I mean.  Glad I am not the only one.

No offense @jpalbny and @drron29 😁

 

Have a great safe fun day all!

 

 

As a retired nurse who has had to decipher many doctor's notes this feels very real 😂.

 

I also apologise to jpalbny and drron29 if this is not the case with your notes.

Haha, that is a fairly accurate depiction of my handwriting. Chris's handwriting is beautiful and extremely legible though.

 

We should play a game. What do those chicken scratches say? Back in the day of handwritten charts I got pretty facile at deciphering random squiggles...

 

My guess is "leave them alone. None are important"

 

Other translations?

My guess would be "Give this patient another enema.  He's a pain in the ass!"  I'm not as nice as JP! 🤣

So now you are warned @rojaan19!  My humour is a little off the wall and I'm not as nice as many folks in the Cooler!  🙄

However,  I do enjoy a lovely glass or two or three of wine.   I love to dance.   My favourite aerobic activity is laughter!  😁
