I adopted Roadie at the end of 2011. He had been abandoned in winter and a friend of my daughter found him. I took him in and we had just over 2 wonderful years. Last night, he went up to bed for his nap. When I came up a few hours later, he was gone. He was originally called Brighton, but for obvious reasons, he became Roadie. Goodbye little buddy.

Evening in Patras
During our marathon munchethon we chatted about how strange it was to go to sleep in idyllic Ithaca and wake up in boring Patras. A bit of an exaggeration perhaps, but Patras seemed like a poster town for modern conformity, with its Pizza Hut, TGI Friday and all the same dismal high-street stores as can be found in any European town. Such are the joys of cruising in and out of Ancient Greece, with EasyCruiseOne acting as some kind of interdimensional portal. (Karmanie)
