    My father leaving might have been the best thing he ever did for me.
    It helped me to be a good husband. Don't do as he did.
    And scared me from ever having children. I thought that his horrible parenting skills might be genetic.

    No problem! I will comment here from now on.
    I visited Fes, and the Medina, back when I was around 16. Loooonnnnggggg time ago! Interesting place that probably hasn't changed much in 50 years. Except for cell phones everywhere!
    What led you to Fes, if that's not too personal...

    Tomorrow is the day that my new fish pond should be ready for water. But that's not to say it'll be finished. Not even half way.

    I'm rubbish as a singleton.
    I've been in long term relationships since the age of about 6.
    You'll find someone, or else you won't and life can be good either way. :D

    Glad it's all sorted, Ed.
    A good result for all concerned, in the end, including the tortoises, ti would seem. :)
    Knew you'd fix it to everyone's satisfaction.

    That is exactly, 100% true for me too, Ed.
    Identical in every detail.

    No, happy to answer.
    But first welcome to the Cold Dark Room where a lot of us sit about on armadillos lit by flying jellyfish and talk about a lot of stuff.
    And cheese.
    Not changed much here in 1,000 years, i get my rubbish taken away by donkey every morning, the leather is made in the old way, etc. etc. But yes, cell phones and satellite dishes abound.
    I have lived in Britain, Poland, Saudi Arabia and Thailand and needed to move to a hot country for our health's sake.
    We wanted somewhere cheap, safe, easy to buy a property, beautiful and not too far from the UK so if we had an emergency we could get back quickly.
    And Fes Medina is the largest pedestrianized urban area in the world, I don't much like traffic. We saw a program about it on telly that told us a lot about it and that no other British people lived in the medina, so it was exciting and fitted the bill.
    i'd been to Morocco before but not to Fes.
    We came and fell in love with the place on the first night.
    So we stayed.
    12 years, now !

    Very sweet.
    Nighty night, Sabine, you sleep well, now, hopefully chat again tomorrow, here in the Dark.
    Just went up on the terrace but it's too cloudy. :(
    No Perseids for me tonight.

    PIZZA LOVERS
    Take a selection of your old vinyl records along with you the next time you go to an overpriced pizza restaurant.
    Take examples of a 45 single, an old 78 and a 33 long playing album, and use them to demonstrate to the idiot waiter exactly what size pizza you require.
    When it finally arrives, check it against your record to make sure it's the right size.

    I'm a little late on the recycling but here's ours! This is close to $70 worth! My kids split it for pocket money.
