wonderful perspective!! draws you right in!
Chris: Thank you Bonnie, having reflections from a wet sidewalk helps
The lady on the right is wishing she had brought her umbrella smile
Chris: Well indeed it looks a bit unsettled doesn't it
so anyway, I said to her, I said, they can't afford that on what he earns, I mean for a start the feathers get up your nose, I ask you, four and sixpence a pound, and him with a wooden leg, I don't know how she puts up with it after all the trouble she's had with her you-know-what, anyway, it *was* a white wedding, much to everyone's surprise, of course they bought everything on the hire purchase, I think they ought to send them back where they came from, I mean you've got to be cruel to be kind, so Mrs Harris said, so she said she said she said, a dead crab she said she said? well her sister's gone to Rhodesia, what with her womb and all, and her youngest, fit as a filing cabinet, and the goldfish, the goldfish, they've got whooping-cough, they keep spitting water at the Bratbys, well they *do*, don't they, I mean, you *can't*, can you, I mean they're not even married or anything, they're not even *divorced*, and he's in the KGB if you ask me, he says he's a tree surgeon, but I don't like the sound of his liver, all that squeaking and banging every night till the small hours, well, his mother's been much better since she had her head off, don't you talk to me about bladders, I said...
Chris: Precisely..

"Da ist wieder dieser alte Mann in dem Hauseingang mit seinem Dingsbums, überall lauert er einem auf, könnte einen ja mal fragen, naja, ich sag nur 'keep smiling', das nächste Mal werde ich ihn ansprechen und ihn mal zur Rede stellen ..." -but the other lady is so involved in her talking that she didn't realised what Julie had just said to her.
Chris: Thus is the way of the world Philine..

I think Billiam thinks that only women can have a decent conversation about very little .... I have heard grown men, usually sports pundits, trying to talk for more than five seconds on sport ... its most embarrassing
Chris: Quite so Comrade: I wish my blog to be a sport-free zone

"'E never!!!!"

"He did! And then, I said..."

Bill's comment lacks a liberal sprinkling of the word I hate most. "Like". As in...

and she was 'like'...


You have been spotted by the way!
Chris: I'm like spotted - cool

Love your street scenes like this, Chris - keep them coming!
Chris: I have been out both yesterday and today slaving away in the name of this sort of thing Lisl
Great smile on the girl in black. Pinky does not know you are alive. She talks with her hands like I do.
Chris: A lot of people do that, very often Italians do
They are probably wondering where the rain has gone smile
Chris: Droitwich Spa, Worcestershire
They breed them stocky down your way don't they. I'm with Mike on the 'like' thing, it drives me barmy!!
Chris: Same here..

The lady on the left appears to have no hands. She appears to be admiring your equipment, though.
Chris: Yes but I doubt if she would lovingly fondle it..

Yes... just why do people say "like" all the time now?
Chris: It's only like young people who like do this - eeeaauuugghhh!!

Oh, sorry, I read that the word 'like' has become obsolete, but I myself like/I would like to use/using it rather often - what is the reason? Or are only the like/likey buttons meant I don't use?
Chris: You misunderstand Philine: modern British youth have a tendency to use the work when it is not grammatically necessary, this doesn't apply to us

Thank you, I have just read an interesting article about this filler-word 'like': http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-11426737.
I love wet sidewalks...
Chris: You would love Droitwich then Larry
