Overheard in class: “Goto is the duct-tape of C++. It works, but it isn’t pretty. And you should be ashamed for using it. But still … it works in a pinch.”
Carmen is up to something.
You’re a wizard, Xavier!
Two bucks says Portugal wins.
Frosty ☃️ morning.
Don’t tell Xavier, but he’s actually using Python on Linux.
“When the US Dollar is at 77 cents, you snooze, you lose.” #shitpamsays
“Doctor Who is science fiction? I didn’t know that.” #shitpamsays
Going to sneak into the Boyz 4 Now auditions.

-5°C this morning. And he insisted I on a Pokémon raid.
No school tomorrow!
When you find a parking spot in Praia de Mira in August, you take it.
Internet is slow for some reason.
“It’s an older code, sir, but it checks out.”
I’ve been uploading dashcam footage to Google Photos and letting it chew on it. It spits out these 90-second videos which accurately sum up a trip. Here’s August 1, 2018.
Fort McMurray: Bridges over the Athabasca river.
“When is Gareth Bale going to cut his hair? It’s a state, b’y.” #shitpamsays

Little Planet Selfie
When I was in the Netherlands for a quick stopover, I flew my drone for a few seconds just to get a 🇳🇱 flag on my drone flight record 🙂 this is the photo from that flight.
Selfie. 🤳🏻 Still bald.
Current state of my Pokéball alarm clock.
Overview of Casqueira.
It is located in Figueira de Lorvão parish, Penacova municipality, Coimbra district, in central Portugal.
While we were in Portugal, an unlucky cat decided to start hanging out in our back yard. Earl forcibly evicted him today. And nearly lost an eye.
On our way home!
Early morning start
Our rental car (Xavier took this photo)
Carmen, Sumol Maracujá
My kind of Pokémon.
Maxi takes this gym battle stuff seriously.
Maxi’s selfie style.
See you next year, Coimbra.
My shirt is the same colour as my beard.
Go with the flow
Try before you buy, right?
That was worth a few steps.
The cat came back, the very next day.
Skinny house in Aveiro
I didn’t overhear the whole conversation. I think it was in French and it was all about Coqs.
“I don’t want to listen to this Fado. Why would I want to be sad in a different language?”
“The machine is still on, Moira.” Pam making Piri-Piri sauce.
Spot the Canadian: goes into world famous Portuguese bookstore. Buys a donut book. 🍩 🇨🇦
“Is this a pigeon?”
Hello from Avila Nova de Gaia.

When you leave a phone with the kids to use “in case of an emergency”
We took Xavier to the hospital for his beach soccer injury. It was a long wait. Maybe 90 minutes or 2 hours. An old guy asked if Xavier was my grandson. He also asked if my Canadian wife was much younger than me. Lol. We saw the doctor (who was happy to get to try out her English on Xavier). And we had a couple of X-rays. Luckily, nothing broken. Total cost was €4. They would have billed directly if we were from Quebec. But apparently they didn’t have an agreement with Alberta. So I paid cash while trying to stifle a giggle. €4. Xavier will be paying me back. Also, feel free to follow Xavier on Instagram. He posts every 6 months or so. https://www.instagram.com/xaviborges

Taking a break from our real estate and shopping mall tour of Central Portugal today, to take a tour of local health clinics.
Grats Pam on Level 22.
Vacation goal: wake up early than the boys and capture the Pokémon gym across the street from us before they know what’s happening.
Drink your vitamin V, Pam.
Lol. Benfica monopoly.
Maxi likes to boogie board, but only if there is someone taller than him around.
Is this a pigeon?

This morning’s entertainment.
Pam’s favourite beach time is sunset.
Listening to my cousin explain the plot to “Strange Brew” to my aunt in Portuguese. Good times!
