THIS IS A CAT FREE POST
Yes, you are, Sonic ! Please stop ripping up my dressing gowns and get out of my wardrobe !
Last Tuesday I was invited by my Spanish neighbours to a street party to celebrate San Juan Day.
As I haven’t a clue what it was about I have asked a couple of guests to explain what was going on.
Over to you.
I just love our names, Hay Rick and Hay Feeva.
When we hit the sack I cuddle up to her, “Hay baby ?”.
She tumbleweeds over, “Not tonight, I’ve got a bale of a headache”.
Anyway, back to the street party.
Yay ! A barbie !
The idea of a barbie is to blow the brains out of it …….
….. then use the glowing charcoal to turn the food into charcoal.
It’s a man thing !
The guests arrive for the street party.
Remember baby Liam ?
Remember Ralph ?
Neighbours from three different homes.
Remember to buy a lottery ticket.
Although deaf and dumb, day and night the vendor sells lottery tickets for his charity “ONCE”
While the men are setting fire to the countryside the women are working out what each person must pay for the food and drink.
Food, such as this.
This woman is easily buttered up, well bread and uses her loaf.
Liam, at 6 months, is now learning to drink beer like the man he is.
After eating and drinking, time for some photies.
At midnight everyone goes down to the river to splash water on their faces. Don’t ask !
When everyone was nice and clean for this year they all returned for the finale of the night. Us ! Yes, us, the Hays !
A couple of minutes later.
I would like to thank both the Hay family (for not explaining what San Juan Day was all about) and the neighbours around me who organised the street party.
I have. Don’t ask ! 😀
