Weekly Photo Challenge: Yellow – The Colour of Greece


Koufonisia – Greek Islands

Of all the islands that we have visited it reminded me of somewhere bypassed by the modern world.  Laid back, almost to the horizontal, this was clearly a place that was good for getting away from it all and for walking and swimming and laying on the beach and although we are not especially passionate about any of these activities we knew that we would be doing all of these over the next couple of days.

This was a place to relax, tranquil and slow, perfect for recovering from a nervous breakdown or contemplating the meaning of life and other serious matters; why women are hopeless at supermarket check-outs, how did the Trojans fall for that Wooden Horse trick and just how did Nick Clegg become Deputy Prime Minister?  Here, I thought, I might find the answer to something that has always troubled me – how can I be sure that the little light in the fridge has gone off when I shut the door?  There was certainly time to give it full consideration without a great deal of distraction.

  1. Many years ago during a rather lively evening with friends, they decided, as I was the smallest person there, to shut me in the fridge to see if the light went off. I can confirm it does….. 🙂

  3. “Women are hopeless in supermarket checkouts?” Careful I will ask Wendy Kate to help me get you in a fridge. 🙂

  4. Andrew, don’t fall for that “balanced view” stuff and nonsense. It’s good to see a bit of bias now and then – as long as it’s from both sides.


  5. We are considering a trip to the Mediterranean. How is the best way to do that?
