Decisions Decisiones

La versión español está después de la versión inglés.

ALTHOUGH IT’S BEEN hotter than usual here, we haven’t experienced the extreme temperatures hitting other parts of Europe (and the usually cooler parts at that). Here in Fuengirola, temps are topping out at around 32C (90F). As a result of the extreme heat in Northern Spain (where temps have been approaching 38C/100F), a giant pile of manure spontaneously ignited causing a dangerous and enormous wildfire. I hope they can soon get it under control.

Speaking of a giant pile of manure, Fuengirola Fashion is in full bloom. And it might be time to buy a new bathing suit. But, I can’t decide which style I prefer (yes, I can). What do you think?


A PESAR DE que ha estado más caliente de lo normal aquí, no hemos experimentado las temperaturas extremas que afectan a otras partes de Europa (y las partes generalmente más frías en eso). Aquí en Fuengirola, las temperaturas están llegando a 32C (90F). Como resultado del calor extremo en el norte de España (donde las temperaturas se han acercado a 38C/100F), una pila gigante de estiércol se encendió espontáneamente y causó un incendio forestal peligroso y enorme.

Hablando de una pila gigante de estiércol, la Moda Fuengirola está en plena floración. Y puede que sea hora de comprar un bañador nuevo. Pero no puedo decidir qué estilo prefiero (sí, puedo). ¿Qué piensas?

      Yes, the Speedo, although maybe not with the day-glo skull on the crotch. Although the guy in the Speedo wears it well.

  1. I saw my favorite right off.

    You said “Speaking of a giant pile of manure” and I thought you were going _____ on us!

    1. Bob,
      I try so had to not mention the worlds largest pile of manure. Spontaneous combustion. Is that thought treasonous?

  2. the speedo, of course!
    wish the “giant pile of shit [that] spontaneously ignited” was donald dump on his way back from japan. pity his buddy kim jong ugh didn’t keep him!

    1. Anne Marie,
      Yeah, how can a giant pile of shit be mentioned without making us all think of It That Must Not Be Named.

  3. Hey, why not make a real fashion statement with the cut off sweatpants bathing suit with exposed pockets?!

    1. Debra,
      A hell of a lot more comfortable. Although I’m much happier in a nude beach.

    1. Frank,
      Oh dear god, there’s a volleyball duo (pros) practicing their returns every afternoon. In Speedos. Very sweaty Speedos. One guy has the most developed thighs, and other arts, I’ve ever seen in my life. THOSE photos would change the rating of my blog.

  4. Speedo! Speedo! Speedo!

    Actually, on close examination, that one guy is a bit on the thin side, but a speedo can have a strange but wonderful rippling effect.

    1. Kirk,
      Hmmm… I didn’t think he was thin. Maybe it’s the photo. Or maybe we have different taste. Speedos just make so much more sense, and all these guys with the rolled up legs, diapers, and other adjustments prove it.

    1. Ron,
      Truth is, that would suit me fine. I prefer nude beaches. A hell of a lot more comfortable. I would probably find even the string around the neck annoying.

  5. You do get around! I looked at the list of places where you’ve lived. I’ve moved a lot, but haven’t been anywhere as interesting as Spain must be. I vote for the Speedo. Thank you for your kind comment on my blog.

    1. Janie Junebug,
      Hope you’re having a better day. We’ve lived in some great places, but I have finally found home. And Speedos.

  6. I give all my money, coins, points and awards to the guy in the speedo. He doesn’t look ridiculous. As for the rest, I’m sorry my dears…your all up for elimination.

  7. The bulging pockets hanging below the rolled up legs is a very good look, especially when you throw in the exposed top band of underwear.

    1. Walt the Fourth,
      And he really had work at that! But he wouldn’t be caught in a Speedo becase that would be tacky.

  8. I saw a photo of Britney Spears with her current guy, and he had on… red trunks with one leg hitched up! I felt so “in the know”. Maybe they were vacationing in Spain?

    1. Judy,
      Haven’t been keeping u with Britney Spears and didn’t know she had a new boyfriend. Do you suppose he’s originally from Fuengirola?

    1. sillgirl:
      I don’t think the guy with the drop pockets could sell himself even for parts.

  9. So glad you aren’t seeing the extreme heat! Being by the water does help keep the temperatures down. The sunshine does make for good short/bathing suit pictures though

    1. Cheapchick:
      Although not as hot here as elsewhere, today got to me. I stayed in all afternoon and just walking out onto the terrace nearly knocked me out. Thank god for air-conditioning.

Please share your thoughts...
