Life after work and the trips of a lifetime

"We are judged by what we finish, not by what we start." - Anonymous

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, your body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming, "Woo hoo! What a ride!..attributed in this form to either Maxine Cartoon or anon

The alpes

I'm sitting on the floor of the tourist bureau making use of their free wifi, which is only useable within 150m of this room and since I've got the crap laptop with me I need it to be plugged into the mains.

The pix above is my car and apartment..we're on the first and second floor ie the balcony and porthole above.

It's situated right at the base of the alpe d'huez and is about a 10 min walk into bourg d'oisans..Alex has already gone up that climb, but I'm busy doing some hard training  for Austria and so am not planning to shatter myself  "col bagging".

The weather has been great, so i'm happily working on my tan.

these last 2 pix from my ride to Oz en Oisans


  1. Stunning views! Jealous... sigh..

    I got a cuddle out of the Ranga last night. My cat whispering is working!

  2. wow! Pippi yes...she'll make up to anyone who feeds her, but the Flea??

  3. He's probably missing hoomuns in the house, and at this stage, any hoomun will do! lol Got another cuddle last night :-)
