When I saw this image I thought that is my mother.
And the poem:
Warning - When I Am an Old Woman I Shall Wear Purple
By Jenny Joseph

When I am an old woman, I shall wear purple
with a red hat that doesn't go, and doesn't suit me.
And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves
and satin candles, and say we've no money for butter.
I shall sit down on the pavement when I am tired
and gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells
and run my stick along the public railings
and make up for the sobriety of my youth.
I shall go out in my slippers in the rain
and pick the flowers in other people's gardens
and learn to spit.

You can wear terrible shirts and grow more fat
and eat three pounds of sausages at a go
or only bread and pickles for a week
and hoard pens and pencils and beer nuts and things in boxes.

But now we must have clothes that keep us dry
and pay our rent and not swear in the street
and set a good example for the children.
We must have friends to dinner and read the papers.
But maybe I ought to practice a little now?
So people who know me are not too shocked and surprised
When suddenly I am old, and start to wear purple.

16 октомври-
     Това момиче - моя племенница, бе на гости при майка ми този месец. За съжаление тя стана свидетел на трагичните събития, които последваха, а именно: третият инсулт на майка ми, влизането й в болница, скоропостижното й изписване(!) и смърт.
      Направих тези снимки специално за предизвикателството - Големият скок. Всички вие писахте за голямата роля на комуникациите в нашия живот. И макар аз да мислех в друга посока, признавам - имате право! Ето, докато ние с майка ми приказвахме, нашата гостенка не отлепи очи и пръсти от екрана на телефона!

This girl - my niece was this month to visit my mother. Unfortunately she witnessed the tragic events that followed, namely the third stroke my mother/18/, her entry into hospital, her quickly discharge from the hospital (!) and death.

I made these pictures especially for the challenge. All you wrote about the important role of communication in our lives. And while I was thinking the other way, I admit - you have the right!
While we were talking with my mother, our guest glue eyes and fingers from the screen of the phone!



Съгласна съм с вас за телефоните и все пак аз мисля в друга посока.
Огромният скок в нашето мислене.
I agree with you about the phones, and yet I think in another direction.
The huge jump in our thinking.

Годината е 1994 - Световното първенство по футбол в САЩ
България-Германия 

       През 1994 година работех в немска фирма. Всички ние тръпнехме преди футболния мач. А нашите немски работодатели се подсмихваха под мустак! Бяха сигурни в победата!
       На сутринта след мача - всички те минаха и ни поздравиха, като се ръкуваха с нас! Като че ли ние бяхме играли на терена! Засвидетелсваха своето уважение - а това не се забравя!
The year is 1994 - World Cup in USA
  Bulgaria v Germany
In 1994 I worked for a German company. We tremble before the football match Bulgaria - Germany. And our German employers chuckled under his breath! They were sure of their victory!
On the morning after the match - they all  greeted us and shook hands with us! As if we were playing on the field! This is respect - and that's not to forget!

      Попаднах на този сладкиш в блога "Кулинарни изкушения от Боби" и реших да го направя. Купих тиква. За разлика от Боби - аз умножих продуктите / по нейната рецепта/ по три.
  Рецептата е тук.
This is a very tasty cake with pumpkin and chocolate.
