OK! The one koulouri (sesame seed covered thin ring of bread) was for me and the boys were to share the big treat. oops, sorry Taki! I get it now. 

If you look up into the sky as I write this I bet it is a little brighter from my grin. We had a Red Bull competition here.( I had the luck to meet one of the young men who worked with the competitors. He came in to get a almost 100 bottles of small waters. He was wearing a t-shirt with the shape of Texas on it. I of course HAD to ask him about it. I almost cried when he said he was in a BMX  bike competition in Austin. He went on to say that Texas and it’s people are GREAT. He is looking forward to going again. He and one of his friends came tonight to say good bye to me. Again here I am almost crying. What lovely young Gentlemen. They came to say bye to silly old me. It made me grin and I am still grinning. I am pleased as punch. I am a happy camper. I wanted to ask them to send me links and or photo’s of their competion’s but I chickened out. Also they weren’t competing here this time. They were helping Red Bull with the Parkour competition. George and Michael-John went to watch the competion. Michael-John has started practicing. He loves it.

Maria on a ferry to Athens. She is going to get her American passport re-newed. Yannis will have his cast removed.

I will leave for now, with much love, Deb


makes me feel silly. I opened the shop for Taki so he could sleep in. (He went out late with friends last night.) Goglee took our car to go get Taki from home. They stopped at one of the best bakeries on the island. Taki bought hisself and Goglee small sandwhiches. He bought our sons things but brought nothing for me. So my feelings are hurt. 😦

Maria sent in her school applications. Yeah! 🙂 

Soon after we opened the store the electricity went off for about half and hour. Taki tried to charge his cell phone and we both laughed because the electricity was off. Then a little while after that I tried to use the little frappe maker. lol…duh Deb! 😛

Taki left to go do some business in Fira. The newspaper/magazine bill came for the shop. I paid the young man. Then I proceeded to tear apart the document to use as scrap paper. What and idiotic thing to do. I don’t know what possessed me.

Taki had to run an errand and I was panicing. It was the first Bible study meeting for this Winter. He made it back by 10:10 and the meeting started at 10:00. I got there first and some ladies didn’t make it at all. 😦  Today was the first time I got to go since May! 😀 It was great. It uplifted me.

So I left there at 12 noon. Went to big super market in my neighborhood. I got ground meat then rushed home to whip up some Tex-Mex. (burritos and tacos) I then took a one hour nap.

George called me to ask me to pick him up on my way to the shop. He got money for the weekend from Taki. Then he and his friend got some junk food and took off. It’s Friday night ya know. 😛

I woke up two minutes before the alarm clock should go off. At the time it was to go off it didn’t. he he he I should have hit the alarm button after setting the time but I hadn’t! WHEW! 😛

While I was cooking the ground meat I found three bits of blue. On the first bit I felt sick. Then I realized it was from the die that they use to prove the meat has been inspected. It was still weird to pull out three bits of blue.

I worked two to ten. Now I am working four to midnight.

OK! God Bless you and don’t forget to do unto others as you would have them do unto you…with love, Deb
