She's well acquainted with the touch of the velvet hand, like a lizard on a window pane (Beatles)

Been a busy few days doing essential things: getting settled in, meeting people, getting the football channel sorted and having a haircut!

Here we are in our natural habitat in our Al Ain abode - surrounded by date palms, mangos and banana palms. We have a couple of roosters and various other wildlife in situ. What are the odds we come to an oasis in the middle of the desert and have roosters waking us up in the morning (a tad too early for Jacky's liking)? The lizard was on our bathroom window - pretty cool huh!

This is the front of our apartments - there are 8 apartments (each with two bathrooms, two bedrooms, kitchen, lounge/dining area) on two floors (we are on the second floor - number 8).

These are the two roosters who live in the garden next door.

Bananas in our front garden.

A gecho on the outside of our bathroom window.

Our lounge/ dining is rather spartan, but Jacky has plans (involving... cushions!).

We intend taking a drive up a local rock formation tomorrow so I'll aim to include some views over our oasis town after that.

Love and peace - Wozza

Not acquainted with this particular quote, and I have been a fan of McCartney since 1964, a teen-aged soul. Sounds like Lennon.

Wozza said...

Yep - Lennon from Happiness is a Warm Gun. Macca could never ever come up with that combination of words.

I have often wondered - was Yoko a destructive force in the artistry that was Lennon?
