Three Wheels Just Biding Their Time In Skinias (Σκυνιάς, Κρήτη) Crete.

Was it crowded house that sang about four seasons in one day? Well that's what it has been like over the last few days. A constant mix of sun, snow, hail and sleet! I guess on the plus side with it being April not much of the icy stuff is hanging around for any length of time. Having said that it's been bloody cold in the mornings, below freezing today. I'm a little worried about my Wisteria buds and the flowers on the Pear tree. The one thing I am most happy about though is the fact I'm still in long grown up trousers....one of the better decisions I have made in recent weeks.
I did venture out with the cameras over the weekend though and at least managed a few frames so that always lifts the spirits. I really do need to get out more here....perhaps when spring arrives for real I will be more productive. Until then you'll have to put up with Crete.

And so the shot, it's been a few days I know, sorry about that not really been in the mood for it but back on some some sort of track now. Taken last visit predictably and in the mountain village of Skinias (Σκυνιάς). It's been a few years since I dropped by the village. The last time there we were invited into a blacksmiths workshop and treated to a great time. Not so this time but it was great wandering the back streets.Here's an aerial view. I do have others from this village which I will post as and when.

I am the son
and the heir
of a shyness that is criminally vulgar
I am the son and heir
of nothing in particular

You shut your mouth
how can you say
I go about things the wrong way
I am human and I need to be loved
just like everybody else does

I am the son

You shut your mouth
how can you say
I go about things the wrong way
I am human and I need to be loved
just like everybody else does

There's a club if you'd like to go
you could meet somebody who really loves you
so you go, and you stand on your own
and you leave on your own
and you go home, and you cry
and you want to die

When you say it's gonna happen "now"
well, when exactly do you mean?
see I've already waited too long
and all my hope is gone

You shut your mouth
how can you say
I go about things the wrong way
I am human and I need to be loved
just like everybody else does
