"Daddy! Daddy! The milk is outside the front door!"
"I saw the sun!"
" We were going to go shopping, but at three o'clock it started to get dark! Then it rained!"
"You actually eat lamb? And Brussels Sprouts?"

Useful tip - for slender Asian females, shopping for clothes in a UK department store - they may indeed have a Size 8, and possibly even a Size Six - it will be the one on the mannequin!

Look for children's sizes, they are free of VAT. :D

I love the stonemasonry of Britain, both ancient and modern. So many of the buildings in the US, especially out West, are steel and glass with stonework often left for detailing or dispensed with entirely. I enjoy walking these old cities and studying the architecture more than any other activity. One can see style exemplars covering hundreds of years, all in the same block.

It can be fun explaining the things we regard as mundane.Might take quite a while too.

I hope they like it there!

In the Netherlands, my mother had to shop in the children's section, and this was back in the 1950s. At 5'2" and 95 lb., she was outside their expectations for a Dutch adult female.

Well done. A friend's wife has finally got her visa here too... 2.5 years after their wedding.

Where I am in Spain, there are thousands of immigrants. They prefer to call themselves ex-pats and get upset when I call them what they realy are, immigrants...

IMMIGRANTS, they don't work and demand newspapers and groceries from home and are a burden on the health service. ;)

Most of them cannot even speak the lingo, and they have created ghettos.....

You can tell where they come from by their tribal costumes.

However the mature ex-pat is better camouflaged.

I believe Trump's three wives were immigrants. There's some jobs that Americans just won't do.

#2 was from Dalton, Georgia. Marla Maples. Dated a friend of hers before I got married.

Congrats Andrew.
