Surfacing Aesop’s Fables …


You were only an Ordinary fellow as an Eagle; but as an old Rooster you are a Fowl of Incomparable Distinction …

Aesop’s Fables …

Moral:  Pride goes before destruction …

The Motley Rooster of the Painting with the Regal Red Comb sighed and said :

“I shall Cry but wheather the Sun Rises God knows … “

I feel Sorry for M I A … and the Allusiveness of my Words …

I have missed All of You and your Remarkable posts,dear WP friends!

Soon,with You,after re-arranging my travel plans,re-scheduling everything or even cancelling them …

After the Tears of the Night … 26 June 2015 …

After the Tears of the Night ...

After the Tears of the Night …

~ Hope you are all keeping well ~

    • There are never strong enough words to thank friends like you dear Jet! “If you want to make God laugh, tell him about your plans.” …
      All turned upside down … I’ve so much missed your brilliant posts!We are still holidaying,but I found some quiet days to sort out my stuffed inboxes.Btw,it was still June and before leaving Athens,when I asked the manager of “Papasotiriou bookshop”,which is quite near my place,to order some of your books for me,but their UK department told them they couldn’t order them despite I offered to pay them beforehand and then I would go to collect them.

      When we come back,end of August – beginning September,I’ll order them through my paypal account.It will be an honour to hold them in my hands and enjoy reading them!
      Many thanks for your encouraging comment,I’ll soon visit your site and enjoy your recent work.Hope you and Athena are keeping well and you’re enjoying your summer days!You have my Love & my Kindest Thoughts as Ever ~ Happy Sunday Jet Dear ~ ❤ xxx

      • Oh how I brightened up to find your comment in my queue dear Doda! And how very lovely to see you made these kind efforts regarding my book. I am making great headway on a new book, entitled Golden Gate Graveyard. It is a mystery novel, set in San Francisco. I am about 3/4 done, hoping to publish it before year’s end. Your kindness and support in pursuing my book is so touching. I enjoyed the link, it brought me a little closer to lovely Greece. I hope you are doing well in all the tumult of your beautiful homeland right now. It is so wonderful to have enjoyed our exchange on this Sunday morning, and I consider it a true honor. Thank you my dear friend. 😀 😀 😀

          It has been my intention to buy your books for a long time now and I’ll!I am glad you have almost finished your new book with the very captivating title.Can’t wait to read them all!Papasotiriou Bookshop is very big and well-organised and I really wonder why they couldn’t do it for me.Presumably,there is a market policy,which they have to follow.Anyhow,I’ll manage to get them,I’ll.My country has been going through many financial and political issues … It all started years ago,but now it’s one of the worst phases,and it’s the very first time we have had capital controls.Let’s wait patiently to see what the future holds for us.Have an enjoyable Sunday ~Sending you love & respect from this end 🙂 🙂 🙂 xxx

    • I really feel overjoyed to hear that you treasure your visit to the Historical Plaka and that you wear this ring everyday.
      Seemingly,it must be a precious one,not money wise … History and Culture have no price … Loved the powerful way you signed off your kind comment!I must write a post bearing the title :
