I went up to Gömbe last Tuesday. It is up in the mountains where a lot of the villagers here in Cukurbag have their summer houses where they grow lots of fruit. There is plenty of water there all summer and it is still beautifully sunny but cooler than down here. Took lots of photos but haven’t had the films developed yet.

Also been working on the new veranda. I got all the tongue and groove on and the OSB so I’m off to Kas this morning to get some roofing felt and shingles to finish it off with. I’m really pleased with how it’s turned out. The next thing will be to make railings for it.

I took a friend to the airport the other day. On the way back I called in to Fethiye to order some new spectacles as Wilf has chewed up the two new pairs that I bought in Kas. Not best pleased about that but I am getting two pairs in Fethiye for the price of one in Kas!

Selahaatin phoned me at 7.30 on Sunday morning to see if I wanted a small wild Boar that he had shot. I went up on the scooter to get it. It was only a very small one so I brought it home. I skinned and butchered it a couple of hours later. Brian and Lorna over in Akbel had said that they wanted some so I gave them a call and they came over in the afternoon. Spent a pleasant couple of hours chatting and they took two legs and the loins. I boiled up the carcass, kidneys, lungs and liver for the dogs. It will be a cheap and very welcome addition to their diet but it has a strong smell when it is cooked from fresh. The last lot I cooked had been in the freezer for 3 or 4 months and didn’t make any undue smell when I cooked it so we’ll do the same again with the legs that we have.
