Ghent



We looked down from above.





We reflected on things.





We kept out of the gym.





We gave our legs a good stretch and drank more than was good for us.






We saw double.

  3. I suppose you'll claim that pic no 4 was in some intellectual museum or the Belgian Madame Tussaud's.
    OK Geoff .. why would I doubt you?

  4. Murph - It's not my idea of a squat thrust.

    Richard - Since when did Jimmy Nail smoke Gauloises?

    Kaz - I'll own up. It was in the castle's torture room. Nice place for an S&M party, perhaps? The thumb screws were probably the mildest things there.

  5. Tell me that's a Serge Gainsbourg doll. Damn, I'm on a plane there. That's everybody's Christmas presents sorted.

    Or is it Eric Cantona?

    Pull his string and he does Rock Around The Bunker.

    Serge Gainsbourg! I thought it was Shane Magowan.

  8. I thought it was the Bee Gees (minus the dead one)

    ReplyDelete
  9. Nope. Not drunk enough to be Shane and his ears aren't big enough. Not big enough teeth to be the Bee Gees.

    Bee Gees?

  10. That is *exactly* what the Bee Gees looked like when I was a youngster in 1989.

    I missed their 70s, um, prime.

  11. The dead BG is the little angel on the left pushing a handcart. "To heaven in a Handcart" is a new expression on me.

  12. You mean I bought a dead Bee Gee?

    I want my money back.

  13. Geoff you are sounding like a Monty Python sketch now.

  14. Liam and Noel?

  15. They're definitely Serge Gainsbourg statues. I put "Serge Gainsbourg statues" onto Google images and came up with something that was on e-Bay that looked pretty similar, and was described as "tres rare". Perhaps we should have bought them and flogged them for a few grand ...

  16. I get "JOLIE STATUE DE SERGE GAINSBOURG EN RESINE 44CM".

    Serge Gainsbourg pretty?

  17. I WISH I HAD missed the Bee Gees 70s prime.... This post made me laugh a lot. Thanks Geoff and by the way Oz IS going ashes mad (I don't like cricket). No matter what I want to watch on telly, there it is...

  18. Cheers, Lyn. The Bee Gees were at their musical best in the sixties although they didn't reach their physical prime till the late seventies.

    Thank you for the cross pollination with Billy's blog, too. I'd rather watch I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here than the Ashes.

  19. Ah, the penalty for not enlarging I supose. Don't you think the one on the left looks remarkably like the Prince of Wales?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Well, they did both shag posh English birds.

  21. I saw the Bee Gees in the 70s they were fantastic performers.
    Isn't Ghent a lovely place I was there in '77..
    yes 1977!

    I see from the gym photo that you took in a pre-season preformance of The Nutcracker. That should get you into the spirit of Christmas.

    Were there any Ghelvis impersonaters singin'
    'in the ghentto?'
    Man am I loaded whoooopps crash thud!

  23. 1977, HE?

    I think the torture room was still in operaton then.

    John of Gaunt had put on a bit of weight, though.

  24. in the ghentto - excellent!

    Glad you had a great time.

    I thought they were Gary Linnekar (unshaved) after a night out on the tiles with Tara Palma Ham. Cloned.

  25. Ooh hello Geoffster. You just caught me correcting a typo. Hee hee.

  26. And desperately trying to think of something witty...can you see the steam coming out of my ears?

    I'm just not funny.

  27. Gary may be grey, Molly, but he hasn't got that ravaged look yet.

    Wait till Tara's finished with him, though.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Are we live?

    Sorry I'm only drinking tea.

    ReplyDelete
  29. You are funny, Molly.

  30. I thought you'd gone so I flipped off into the intergalactic soup of the Internet. Did me tea get cold?

    Two sugars please.

  31. I've timed myself twice now, if you miss a week of blogging, it takes exactly three hours to read everyone's blog.

    I hate it if I miss someone. Wonder if I shall have any time to actually write a post this week...sigh.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Next June we're going to miss two weeks of blogging.

    I'll have to give up work.

  33. Find any 'Get Bhent' T-shirts?

  34. I think it must have changed since the 70s, HE.
