Separated by a common language plus holiday pics

While I was at DS's last week he reminded me about the time when he was living in California and we were travelling up to San Francisco.  We stopped overnight in Monterey.  At breakfast the next morning the waiter asked if we'd like tea, I said yes please.  He said English breakfast? I said, no thank you I'll just have some toast. whereupon DS and his then wife fell about laughing :-/  It turned out the waiter was referring to English Breakfast tea and not as I thought a full English breakfast LOL  Another time in a cafe I thought I was learning and asked for tea with milk (to save being asked if I wanted lemon) and got a cup of tea and a glass of milk :-/








I thought I share a few photos from my recent holiday in Turkey.  These were all taken by one of the photographers working at the hotel.  They include me, DD and partner (Anthony), 2 grandees and Anthony's cousin (very tall) and her daughter (youngest girl).  The girl behind me on the slide is someone the kids befriended.

I sometimes feel the same way when I visit blogs on Wednesday. Most are blogs from the UK, and although I was raised by a very proper British Grandmother, I often have NO idea what some people are talking about. Of course, I usually ask either you or Julia, since I don't want to feel like a fool the second time around (grin). I'm still trying to find out what a "boot sale" is. I know what a boot is (your word for car trunk), but I'm not sure if it's a sale out of a car or not!

Thanks for sharing those photos of your trip. I can see you had a fun time, too.

The author Douglass Adams had a chapter in one of his books where he taught Americans how to make decent tea.

You have a lovely blog. I'll stop by again.
