Day 2 of the Cretan Masters and pretty much as expected , an early bath for Kostas and myself beaten in round 2 by a pairing from 'Tigers' Cyprus , when I left the event they were still there battling in the semis so well done . We had our chances but they hit their doubles first time of asking and comfortably beat us . 
Today sees the  Ladies Open during the day and the round robin group play of the Masters tonight . 64 men battling for the trophy and the title 'Minotaur Masters Champion ' . Will be hard for me to qualify from my group but my aim was to be playing on finals day so I just have to do my best . 


Four Amigos pre tourney ,,,,, the smiles did not last . 

Maria 'Onassis' with Mrs Halliwell posing during play . Wayne Halliwell won the opening days event and was looking good on day two in the doubles .

I forgot to mention ,,,, a blast from the past dropped into the darting arena yesterday , just on a holiday with friends a certain David Sadler looking good for his age a former teammate of Mr G.Best and co at Manure back in the 70s . Was a pleasure to meet the man.

Wow four days of darts , beer , smiles , greetings , farewells and new friends came to an end yesterday . I am knackered , with our daily travelling and worry about leaving our dogs for long periods plus my appalling standard of darts it has been a gruelling weekend . 
I have learnt many things , Crete can organise a great competition , the Cretans embrace their guests with smiles and open arms , unpaid organisation daily went exceedingly well , darts players are a family , Cypriots are hard nosed winners , the Germans are bloody funny and like more than a beer or ten . New friends have been made , friendships in the darting world forged , my thanks to those that kept me smiling even though my darts made me want to cry ( Kermit Merritt , Wayne Halliwell , John Ross ( German , American , Cypriot lol just what are you John Ross ) Denise Halliwell , Cynthia Pay and Kostas just to name a few ) .
So from 30+ years without playing darts  to playing a long weekend of darts was an experience I will never forget . Can I find a set of arras to suit ? I know not , would I do it all again ,,,,, hmmm reflection on that one .
My thanks especially go to my beloved Maria , patience , tact and a never ending optimism got me through this weekend . I have no idea how you put up with me but hey your God put you on this world to ensure the likes of me do not self destruct . He was a winner this weekend .







From Cretan Makem , Maria and Demetres Georgiou masters winner 2017 farewell from Cretan Darts for this year .

So the Masters is over , back to the day job ( well part of it anyway ) . The Christmas bazaars start in November and so begins an opportunity to boost funds to feed the strays in our area during the winter close season , it also helps fund vet care when needed . 
Painting pebbles surprisingly relaxes me and provides an income for the dogs we try and help . Already my Christmas pebbles are generating an income , mind I reckon some asian kids making trainers for Nike earn a better day rate , but hey ho this is life on Crete .





A new lodger , taken off the street and a broken leg operated on , will get love , care and food until she flies to Norway and a new safe home .

Pebbles supposedly being painted for our first bazaar , selling already due to facebook power , not complaining but my overtime rates are pretty crap so time is now a very precious commodity . 





Pebble Power , buying a pebble at the winter bazaars keeps a dog alive , the only other ingredients are time and patience ( didn't know I had either ) .

You know Mr CM, I am not keen on dogs, gardening or darts but like, say Syd an infuriating optimist.. I like and admire the guy. 

I certainly would not find it difficult to have a few beers and chew the fat.

Your blog is always interesting and well written.

I am a little envious atm...imy wife and I have taken the grandkids on holiday for a fee days in half term... she has caught bug... so the cot for the toiddler and the 4 year old are in my bedroom
..i may sleep on the couch? The highlight of tonight will be some sport on sky mobile. Mind the game last night spuds v Wistham was not bad

Good on you mate

LOL my worst nightmare is my kids having children , not that I don't like kids , just I would rather not have the little buggers around . So having the 4yr old and a wee un in my bedroom puts the 3 dogs sleeping in with me last night seem okay and bearable . Mind you Maria was on the sofa cos the newbie had pain so Maria bless her had the company of 11 dogs during the night . We don't do this for admiration or money or anything other than giving dogs a chance to a better life ,,,, mind you it has escalated way beyond our intentions . Sleep deprivation being a wee problem ( but an afternoon kip in the sun does help ) .
Enjoy your grandkids and a few days away , hope your missus gets better soon , none of us know what's around the corner enjoy every day be it with your family or like us with a house full of dogs . Always someone worse off mate , just think I could have my dogs and bloody grand kids ARGHHHHHHHHH .

A change of sport from today ,,,,, egg chasing but not my beloved Union , this is the Rugby League World Cup . 
During my 50+ years living in Britain I had virtually no interest in League rugby , I went to Old trafford once to watch Widnes trounce St Helens in the Stones Bitter Championship final or some other final I canny remember ( invited by the sponsors to a piss up basically ) , I really had not a clue WTF was going on on the pitch ( probably much like SAFC supporters faithfully at the SOL atm ) . 
Since moving to Crete my interest in Rugby League has gone from none to , well pretty much fanatic in the skill , strength and pace of the game , however there is a but , I love Aussie Rugby league and have zero knowledge of English matches or players . 
And so today in the opening match Aussies versus England the out and out favs are Aussie land , I will have a knowledge of every player in gold and no knowledge of the players playing for MY country England . How many of us blindly support OUR countries players/teams with no idea of who they are ? For me I will scream at the box for England , I will cheer them on , I want success for England , I am really looking forward to midday ( 10 am Brit time ) .
So if you fancy a different sport for an hour or so I fully recommend watching some of the Rugby league world cup ..... 

COME ON ENGERRRRRLAND

BBC sport log in check the timetable and give it a go , with a cuppa tea and a biscuit , you will not be disappointed .

After my chores , three Rugby World Cup matches back to back , lovely . Half time Manure n Spuds and I took our rubbish to the village bin , my journey is a 150 metre each way pleasure . 

My neighbours oranges soon to be ready for us to pick and enjoy ( he lives in Iraklio and doesn't come to use his crop ) 
Seeing them from my side gates I feel the need for Vodka and orange ,,,, just have to wait until December to pick them fresh from the trees .


My journey down our lane , our wall and land on the left . 


Bottom of our lane and a right turn , 100 metres to the bins , on the left another neighbours bouganvilla takes centre stage . 


A two minute walk from start to finish as I wander up our lane and back for the second half . Looks cold in Manchester ,,,, nearing 30 here as I slowly wander home .

I really wanted to leave this crap chat alone until seasons end , but Syds thread regarding Sundermads values and basic principles have made me post here ( maybe should have been a seperate thread ) .
Any of you watched the excellent The Bridge ( Nordic version ) and/or the Anglo/French The Tunnel . The leading lady in both portrays Aspergers syndrome ( in The Bridge this is a truly superb portrayal ) . I bring this up because it is a condition that makes life hard for that individual , it makes communication hard with others , isolation is okay for an Aspergers sufferer . 
I am 58 years old , I have gone through life thinking I was different , I have been married , divorced , had kids , lost a daughter  had two successful careers ,  had highs and lows in life to the point of complete comfort to mental breakdown and suicidal thoughts .
Most of us at our ages have multiple 'life' ups and downs . 
Until I met Maria here in Crete I had no idea I have a slight Asperger condition , she has worked with Aspergers at a very close level in her life . Now finally I understand my 58 years of life , it has lifted something in me I didn't understand or even know about . 
And here is my point , a lot of people using the internet only 'see' what people post , we know nothing about them in any detail , we all read a post differently and react accordingly , I have no worry of being totally open on how I feel or who I am ( lol like asking for sex ,,, if youv'e seen either programme you know what I mean ) I am an open book , too honest and open for most , but that is Aspergers .
So before posting a reply or comment just pause and respect that your take on that post is exactly that , it is your take on that post , it may or may not be what the poster intended . We are all different , have some respect .

Good post cretin and lots of common sense. I know about many posters on here and the problems they have in life, lots of ill health of partners that brings some challenging problems, many of us have them.

I'm sure "H" wont mind me saying that her son in law is in intensive care right now and she almost lost him last week, the fact that he lives abroad does not help, just one person going through worrying times.

I want SunderMad to be many things but one reason its here is an escape from lifes problems for a few moments, I and many others value that escape.
