People Who Need People / Personas Que Necesitan Personas

La versión español está después de la primera foto.

I’M STILL THINKING about the people I met Friday at the Museum of Málaga. Not one talked back, complained, was unkind, or showed off. Well, maybe they did show off; they were all being displayed as works of art, after all. Still, these are a few of the people I met and liked. They weren’t quite as old as the ones I introduced on previous days, but they were still fascinating individuals. And, oh, the fashions!

SOMEONE’S MOTHER (I CAN’T REMEMBER WHOSE) / LA MADRE DE ALGUIEN (NO RECUERDO DE QUIEN)

SIGO PENSANDO EN las personas que conocí el viernes en el Museo de Málaga. Ninguno replicó, se quejó, fue desagradable, ni se mostró. Bueno, tal vez se mostró; todos ellos se mostraban como obras de arte, después de todo. Sin embargo, estas son algunas de las personas que conocí y me gustaron. No eran tan viejos como los que presenté en los días anteriores, pero seguían siendo personas fascinantes. Y, ¡oh, las modas!

  1. I immediately thought of SG when I saw the photo of the helmet. But it would probably be too hot to wear. The paintings are wonderful. Your new friends are so very stylish and elegant.

  2. I’m always drawn toward glamour (even princesses) so I do like the Anita Delgado picture. and you’re right, she does remind one of the Mistress.

    As for that helmet, if SG ever gets a job in construction, I’m sure it would come in handy.

    1. Kirk:
      There was so much art to share, but i didn’t want to be merely an exhibit brochure. The portraits were exceptional. Ha, SG in construction. He’s very handy but loses interest after 10 minutes and needs a break. Still, he’d look great in his hard hat.

  3. Yeah, I can see Maddie in that picture. He’d give it a little more pizzazz! As for the helmet, the important thing to consider is if it will go well with a dishtowel.

    1. Deedles:
      The dish towel would have to go under the helmet and Jerry could definitely make it work. Unfortunately, the helmet isn’t his size. As for the portrait of Maddie in the past, the hair and lashes aren’t big enough.

  4. A propos of nothing, I turned on the travel channel yesterday and at that very moment they were showing an aerial view of… Fuengirola! It didn’t last long and they moved on quickly, but the narrator mentioned the town’s name a few times so I was sure I heard it correctly. I think the show was called Europe’s treasures seen from the air, or something like that.

Share your thoughts and experiences. It's always nice to know I'm not alone.
