Never mind, we've got clean fresh air, nothing much in the way of bugs which bite us and make us ill, and the best whisky in the world! The Doc will have had the hassle of lengthy waiting at airports, and stuffy, suffocating heat....just remind him to bring you back a presie!

I think Mrs. C. deserves a trip to an exotic locale herself, but one perhaps farther afield than Glasgow.

I love these two pictures you've found to compare and contrast. The second actually looks appealing to me right now as it is so hot here. However, when I read your lyrical description of the first, well that's where I want to be.

It is difficult when one's significant other gets to experience an exotic locale, isn't it? Even if it's under the pretense of working.

Great idea showing the two paintings! I'd rather be with you in wellies and cold weather and "general greyness." As much as the world seems to love tropical resorts, give me a cold day in Scotland, anytime. :<)

I wonder if Dufy would recognise the Cote d'Azure now. Taking part in Sport's Days, watching them, remembering them, lots of varying emotions. If you do have a holiday in Glasgow next week, I'm sure we'd all love a postcard...yes?

Oh the contrast! I have been in that situation. One time DH was on his way to Bermuda with the service for two weeks and I was left in snowy Nova Scotia with the children. He had flown in the day before his Bermuda departure from Nfld., and we had shoveled the foot or so of snow that had fallen - but only a footpath up the driveway. We were expecting more snow. At about 5:30 am, he awakened me with a request - 'where was his bathing suit'. Good thing the children were still sleeping, cause this gal was not amused!
Perhaps you can take a little break later on, Cornflower!

a simple yarn

My DH is currently in the land of perpetual sunshine at the moment while the Kiddies and I languish in the land of eternal rain. 'Life is full of inequities,' say I not-quite-philosophically-with-a-bit-of-begrudging-in-my-voice....

I have that Dufy on the wall (or, rather, a copy thereof...) - I love his paintings. That's probably my favourite of his.
