Biography

At the time of writing this, I am a free roaming midlife crises, looking for somewhere to get into trouble, or someone to get into trouble.

I am in the fortunate position that I owe nothing, and own almost the same. My current plan is to. . . . . actually I don't have one right now as I am broke and living in Spain again. Guess I will have to rent my body to anyone that can make use of it. I am open to offers by the way!

If anyone reading this has some suggestions on where I should visit, I am open to all ideas. Ideally before my body decides to call it a day. Think that day is penciled in for a week next Tuesday!

        I used to get a lot of long stares in Asia. In fact I still do so in Spain. I think it must be the hat.

        Having had troubles myself with that select group of people when I lived in England, I know what you mean. But my van was too grotty to be mistaken for such a thing, and I had my cooking gear laid out.

      I've been wondering the same thing. I had thought from one his posts that he might look to pull back from here for awhile. He just needed a break. I hope he comes back on to share some more images and stories. There are some who just make my day. He's one of them.

        Yes that's from my dodgy brush work with the layer mask. Since this last update of PS, my wacom tablet no longer works correctly. So I am back to using a mouse which is just clumsy. But slightly less frustrating than a malfunctioning tablet & pen.

            Pleased it's not just me that is having grief. On Wacom's website it just says that they know there are problems and that they are trying to solve them. No word on whether it will just update itself or if we have to visit the site for new driver updates. I am not best chuffed with the arrangement I must confess!!

        Would you believe that it's actually right next to a main road. I wish I had made a note of where it was. Then I could go when the sky was more playful.
