With Gattina & Shakira.

Just do a funny post, something which makes us laugh that's the most important.

And of course there also is

I was busy in the kitchen to prepare something light to eat for lunch and had switched on the TV because I like to watch a little crime story, while I am eating and some little murders are always distracting. I like the "Murder she wrote" style not the bloody CSI series, where they cut guts into pieces or turn a stomac upside down to find a diamond or drugs while I am eating my lunch. While I was busy I listened when my film would start. Suddenly I didn't hear anything any more. Surprised I went in the living room and what did I see ?

Cat Arthur deeply sleeping with his head half of the remote control and the TV was on "mute". He had also changed the channel and on top of that, he was on my place, where I always use to sit and watch TV ! I put the right channel, where a male body decorated with a sharp knife in his belly was already shown and put the sound. Arthur, whom I just displaced in the middle of the sofa, didn't even open an eye.

Our weather luck continues in our usually so rainy country, besides some heavy short summer rains, it's dry and of course the farmers complain. Usually they complain because it's too wet.

1. On Sunday I did a little walk through the weekly flea market in Waterloo and as always was quiet surprised what kind of stuff was for sale and that people bought it ! I didn't find anything. In the post below you can see the kind of things I could have bought there.

2. I also had to drive my neighbor to a hospital which I knew by name because it is quiet famous, the reception looked like a big Hotel hall, at least that was my impression. My poor friend has to go there once a month to get a shot in one eye, so that she wouldn't get blind. This desease can't be healed but at least stopped. The doctor a young woman and the staff were extremely kind and friendly and we even joked together.

3. As it was so hot inside the country Ilona and I went to the sea, only one and a half hour away. We took ombrellas, seats and pic nic along and had a wonderful day. It was very hot, 32°C (90 F) which is very unusual at the North Sea. Apparently it was the hottest day since ages, but supportable because of the little breeze. Before going home we ate the traditional crepes and had a good strong coffee and then an alcohol free beer.

4. Our "4th of July" is on the 21st of July. Of course I went there with my friend Jacqueline just for the ambiance. In the morning the major held his annual speach (on the picture he is besides me) and then greeted the people. He also came over to me, I wonder if he remembers that 30 years ago we fought about a chair and I winned and he fell on the floor.

In the evening was a concert with a Freddy Mercury imitator, he was quiet good and also sang the Jailhouse Rock from Elvis. We all had a lot of fun. The evening ended with a nice fire work.

5. The rest of my time I spent blogging and and the usual household duties. I must get very strong with the age because I broke the knife while cutting an omelet.

"The muffed target" has no special rules. Just post pictures which are not at all like you had wanted and describe how it happened. Then leave a link here on my blog for other participants.

My cat Rosie climbed in the bushes probably looking for bird nests, and as she looked so cute trying to jump, climb and balance herself with her tail, I took pictures for my cat blog.

Here you see the result. I made nice photos of the bushes and the only time I catched Rosie she had stalking lazer eyes !

On Monday I went to the sea they had announced nice weather, but in the morning it was still a little cloudy and quiet cool. Too cool anyway to lay on the beach.

This is in Coxyde shortly before the French border. There were lots of French tourists too.

I didn't know what this tower in cross form was, apparently it is to measure the weather and sea conditions, like storms, floats etc.

We also saw this romantic wind mill which turned slowly in the wind

These are Cuistax, they exist for 8, 6, 4 or two persons and everybody pedals along the beach way. Apparently they only exists at the Belgian coast, because I have never seen them in another European country.

and of course the dunes, so nice to walk barefoot on the sand.
