Picking Over Thyme Or Perhaps Time? Malles (Μάλλες, Κρήτη) Crete.

Thunder storms were triggered off this afternoon which I thought would cool it down but no. I have also caught Jan's cold which is rather sweet of her....I was beginning to be a little concerned about my almost CHIRPY frame of mind so nothing like a 'Man Cold' to put my mood back in order. As you ladies out there will know a man cold can be quite serious, I have known men suffer for weeks with one of these and there is rumour that giving birth is almost as nasty. Generally we are brave and push through it....we don't like to grumble!

Now I know that there is no cheese grater visible in this shot but I was sure that she either had one in that bowl under the Thyme bush or she had one tucked down the back of her skirt! Heaven only knows how many she had in the house. I had been off shooting leaving Jan in the shade when I could hear little whimpers from her. I could see the relief on her face when I returned. She can only manage hello, good morning etc in Greek. Mine isn't a lot better but I can at least say where we are from and of course answer all the essential questions that are always asked...how old we are, how much we earn, do we have children if so how old. Are our parents alive is so how old, if not how old were they when they died! That is always briskly followed by why can't Jan speak any Greek! All of this happened in the lovely village of Malles (Μάλλες). She was such a sweetie, I did snatch a from the hip shot with the swc but asked her for a few shots and she said yes....so that was cool. I will of course take her a print next trip. Did I hear you ask where Malles was? Well here is an aerial view of Malles (Μάλλες).

eddie graces buick got 4 bullet holes in the side
charlie delisle sittin at the top of an avocado tree
mrs storm'll stab you with a steak knife if you step on her lawn
i got a half pack of lucky strikes man come along with me lets fill our pockets with macadamia nuts
then go over to bobby goodmansons and jump off the roof hilda plays strip poker
and her mamas across the street joey navinski says she put her tongue in his mouth dicky faulkners
got a switchblade and some gooseneck risers that eucalyptus is a hunchback theres a wind up from the south
let me tie you up with kite string and i'll show you the scabs on my knee watch out for the broken glass,
put your shoes and socks on and come along with me lets follow that fire truck
i think your house is burnin down
then go down to the hobo jungle
and kill some rattlesnakes with a trowel
we'll break all the windows in the old anderson place
and steal a bunch of boysenberrys
and smear em on our face
i'll get a dollar from my mamas purse
and buy that skull and crossbones ring
and you can wear it around your neck
on an old piece of string

then we'll spit on ronnie arnold
and flip him the bird
and slash the tires on the school bus
now don't say a word
i'll take a rusty nail
and scratch your initials on my arm
and i'll show you how to sneak up
on the roof of the drugstore

take the spokes from your wheelchair
and a magpies wings
and tie em to your shoulders and your feet
i'll steal a hacksaw from my dad
and cut the braces off your legs
and we'll bury them tonight in the cornfield

put a church key in your pocket
we'll hop that freight train in the hall
and we'll slide all the way down the drain
to new orleans in the fall
