When residual cheques aren't enough

We were enjoying the sights in Basel when Sapphire looked up, pointed and said, "Oh look, there's Lord Farquaad from Shrek."

I guess that being turned into stone on the famous Munster wall is better than the fate of these two lesser-known actors, now reduced to posing nude as kite flyers in the gardens of a local high school:

Or Henry Winkler, who needed to find a Paul Newman-style regular income due to the patchy nature of his acting jobs post Happy Days:

Am catching up on your posts...
Love the falconer!
Will be getting a puffy thingiewhatsit in the new year.
Those boots are gorgeously shiny.
Hope Sapphire is on the improve with the IV ABs.
I shall think of the Fonze each time I look at Twisties now lol.

Love foreign junk food - though going through Asia you can get some really strange flavours. You did get some fonzies, didn't you? Did they taste like Cheezels?

Thanks Jayne - unfortunately, cheese-flavoured snacks here are very stingy in coverage - Fonzies have about 10% of the dusty orange stuff of Twisties, so they were disappointing. On the other hand, if you like 'paprika' then you'll have around 99% of all chips and crunchie snacks at your disposal.

Pandora, see above. I'd LOVE some Cheezels!

Now in Basel eh? At least you are exploring hope the IV antibiotics are working.
Interesting one on the shower gel, a programme on the TV in the UK said they are harder to break down in the sewerage farms? I also agree with the last comment squeegee down afterwards and you wiill last longer!

Sorry for the confusion, nuttynoton - Sapph and I went there for three days in between being a legal guardian for Nafeesa when her mother was still in hospital and just before Sapphire got ill.
