As that sign is not hanging in a shop but held by a lady, I wonder whether there is a story associated....

cheers

Don't ya just feel the love!

I took this pic of my wife holding the sign when we were shopping in the Galleries Lafayette.
We had a big laugh as she wanted to get the sign for me to put in the kitchen.
It was shot with a D800 and the Leica R 28/2.8 VII.
This is another take of the same session but without the Bokeh so you can clearly see the set up.
I kept the EXIF for any St Thomases!!!!

So does this mean that if you bring your bed into the kitchen and sleep there, you'll get breakfast served on the next day? :D
Good one Almass!

Your wife is a Smurf?


I fail to see the point of your post?

And I consider your post rude, personal and insulting about a person you don't even know.

Maybe you ask your Mother when she is done?

Do you feel happier now that we can exchange personal family comments.
But I am sure such niceties are above your mental level.

Now, what you gonna do about it?

1- Ban me
2- Apologize for you crass comment
3- Let both posts stand to show what type of jerk you are.
4- Delete both posts and send me a personal apology?

5. None of the above.

Obviously you failed to observe the humour in my post. I had assumed that you might be aware of the blue people they call "Smurfs".

Regarding my mother: if you know of any mediums who might be able to contact her, I'll ask her your question.

The blue is exactly "Smurf blue", same tone. Smurfs were big hit for children at 80's. I still remember some of the episodes...
(Sorry for slight off topic.)

That's what I thought.

You are not capable of rational thinking and you do not see the fact of dragging one's wife into a discussion has any relevance to the discussion.

You keep your humour for your own wife if you have any.

I don't see why you have to be humour laden in relation to my wife.

You are a jerk and an asshole as well.

Now, what are you gonna do about it? Jerk!

This a bit unusual for this forum.
Almass, I wish you would calm down a bit. I don't think Dallas was trying to insult you.

Almass,FWIW I do not regard the term "smurf" as an insult. Heck, i know a woman who signs herself as
"smurf" on her site !! I'm sure Dallas was not intending any disrespect or rudeness.

It is clear and obvious that no insult was intended, merely a humourous comment inspired by the blue face in the photo..

Let it go.
