666 by the river

Still not a lot of words on this post, but some photos that hopefully will amuse you. Here's a very old thermometer marking a perfect temperature: 24º C, warm sun and fresh breeze.

A beer in front of the river. If you're not jealous, you should be.
And since this is my post # 666 and I'm a bit devilish, here's me saying hi.

There was a statue man sitting there, covered in some kind of ocre. I saw him move a few times. Cheat.

Suddenly he got up and disappeared towards the river and we wondered if he was going to wash himself up in the river water. I can't remember if we saw him again after that, now that I think about it.

you beast!...cool beer and warm water's edge..how lovely!If only the temps here in UK would reach such dizzying heights. And as for 'Statue Man'..I think he must live at the bottom of the river and only come out on warm evenings...if he remains ashore for too long, he will dry out and set..so has to return to the water.

Deepbluewater: Thanks :)

Aathira: Yes it is, very old too.

Dharmabum: ah thanks! Hey, it's been a long time since I've seen you around!

FB: True. haha Yes, I heard about that. The draw is a little bit, surely we won't be in the same group again? ;)

Shadow: I know these posts have the greatest effect when people who read them are confined to work, so I apologize ;)

Niall: Maybe he does. He was very odd indeed. His chair was covered in that dirt too and had had brown bags with sand inside. Crazy.

DM: Town and river look beautiful, and I see by one of your pix that you're being a bit "selective." Party on, devilish one.

Devil Mood said...

PS: Yes, those are not very frequent around here.

Murat: What are you talking about?

fb said...

Come on Porto!

Beat arsenal!

Of course Atletico would be in Liverpool's hroup!

Devil Mood said...

FB: hehe Yes, Torres reunited with the old club. There's always a cosy reunion in these draws.

Our group isn't a piece of cake and getting the best team of Pot 4 wasn't lucky for Liverpool neither. Oh and Marseille again. Isn't this getting a little boring now? :P
