Canary Cables and Coffee . . .

Another couple of scenes from the Canary Island of Tenerife in 1994. These cable spools had remained unmoved for so long people were using them as billboards for circus posters. . .

Vivian, this is another one that is going to need your bicycle pump to put some air in the tires before those coffees can be delivered. . . hope no one was expecting the coffee to still be hot by the time it gets to you in this old wreck. . .

Oh dear, you've certainly been up till the wee hours of the morning. Catching up on years of lost blogging indeed! LOL
All right, I'll just single out the amazing apple green house (I never saw anything like it anywhere else in France !)and the thin man's house (really funny).

Keep'm coming but sorry if I can't keep up with the rhythm of your multiple posts.

Can't keep up ??? You mean to say you have other things to do in a day than read obscure blogs like this one ? Guess you'll have to start staying up later and drinking more coffee ! LOL... I'll call that Canary Island coffee service and see if that van can bring you over some coffee right away... Glad you like the green house, I couldn't believe it either... Thanks for stopping by !

The green house was jaw-dropping, Owen. I wonder how long it will remain that colour. When my son was young he supported a Melbourne football team whose colours were red and black. His bedroom only stayed those colours for about 6 months!

Hi Owen, love your b&w photos, lots of character in them. Thanks for your comment on the Auld kirk photo some of the gravestones only have a skull & crossbones on them which means the person died of poisoning. or the plague.
