Thanks for the kind greetings everyone.

We have popped down to Lanzarote for a few days to avoid friends and family fuss. I don't enjoy birthday so called "celebrations", especially this one because suddenly car hire and travel insurance become elusive and very expensive.

We are staying at the H10 Timanfaya Palace Hotel in a Privilege suite which gives us access to a private area in the gardens, an exclusive lounge and restaurant plus a few other so-called exclusive benefits. The hotel clearly noted my date of birth when they copied my passport because I have been treated to flowers, champagne and a note under the door promising me a surprise that will be waiting for me in the restaurant tonight.

As usual, we have a hire car which is a Seat Ibiza 1.4 petrol auto.  I quite like the car but the DSG gearbox has a habit of hesitating especially at starting off which causes me to press harder on the loud pedal which results in the car taking off like a scared rabbit. Libby aint best pleased when it happens. Today we drove through the volcano area where the road cuts through the 300 year old lava flow from the last major eruption. It is awesome.

We now wonder why we haven't been here before - it's wonderful.

I will post some piccies when we get back home.

Oh Wow! The big "80" I was thinking it was "only" 79!  :happydance:

"Just popped down to Lanzarote" as if it is just around the corner... I had to google it to discover it is in the Canary Islands... That is the only thing about living in a place like Tassie which is so isolated from other countries!  :crazy1:

Sounds like you are having an awesome time!

So you're sure that Alan found it funny that Gonz found it funny that I posted something about a post that Alan made that I thought was funny?
Yes?  :confused:    :undecided:

No, I found it funny that you were disappointed that Alan thought that Gonz had been funny, when it was actually you that was funny and Gonz just thought it was funny. Funny how that makes it clearer.

What makes you think I was disappointed that Alan thought that Gonz had been funny when it was me who'd been funny and Gonz just thought it was funny?
I was just correcting what I thought was a funny error to make by Alan who posted the original funny comment to which I answered and Gonz found funny, but Alan thought it was Gonz who was funny when it was me who was funny and Gonz just thought I was funny?
Is that clearer?
