Vacation pictures

I say vacation pictures but I´m in most if not all of the pictures, family doesn´t want to be on the blog, they´re ashamed of me…na, kidding. I´m just a narcissist that doesn´t want to be associated to them or for that matter to anybody else, just me. So Here I am freezing in my parents houseFoto 318and reading and learning and….well, smoking. I did have a soft spot when I left the two wild beast that I have living with me, a soft spot of living them behindIMG_1470.Look! at that dude, look at his face that was the picture I took of him just as I was about to leave, he´s eyes says it all “Don´t leave me here with my crazy ass sister!!!!” Yep, the female that looks like she´s sleeping, she´s really not, like human females she´s very deceptive and manipulative. She even manipulates me, a human, which is quite depressing. Fast forward 4 hours later in the bullet train and I´m here ! DSCN2409 with my cool  yacht behind me. warning i do realise that in all these pictures I have the white hat, they have already have given me enough grief so don´t say nothing about it….or do if you wish, if you wish an ass kicking from me that is.

Back to beautiful vacation, this is the port of Malaga, in the south region of Spain called Andalucia which the Marrocans invaded and then we re invaded them and they returned back and then we returned back and on and on. And home to the Spanish Legion, so I know the city pretty good. Specially the bars to tell you the truth, never went on tourist vacation back then. But this time with the family, well it was quite nice to see other parts of the city. Like this Cathedral that I forgot what´s the name of itDSCN2416 Or cool little traditional  housesDSCN2415 So you might be like in the other photo looking at the sea and you turn around the camera and you gotDSCN2410mountains! This is in the waterfront also. There´s a castle up over there on top. Some king, since we have had a bunch of kings why do they expect me to know them all, who cares kings are kings and I´m just a humble man.

Of course the traditional Spanish food, watch out vegetarians!DSCN2419 He´s on fire but he tastes…damn goodDSCN2420 And this is the same restaurant as in this pictureDSCN2421 They´re very religious down there, so religious that the restaurant owner has even made a virgin for himself, or for the restaurant that is. DSCN2427 Down town Malaga, this could be compared to Manhattan´s 5th Avenue, where all the expensive shops are, jewelry, clothes, e.t.c. And at night as you can see there are arches made of light bulbs so it´s really beautiful to see this at night. I was there at night but not on tourist mode, and in case you where wondering those two guys with the yellow jerseys that burns your eyes ,yep, local police and they where not there for me just so you know. They just got in the way….. fuck again! You also have cool dudes sitting aroundDSCN2424 see, now I don´t have my hat. I stole his!

I was in a small town outside of Malaga which name will be reserved and after waking up I just had to walk 50 meters to this placeDSCN2444 having a good Coke with me, no whiskey in it I promise and no cigarette in my mouth? That one is weird by the way. You take a stroll and sit down near the palm beachDSCN2440 Or you can walk and see meet with the famous painter PicassoDSCN2431 He´s cool, as you can see he let me use a bit of his paint. And next to Picasso we have another churchDSCN2430. That would be to the right of Picasso or to the left as you are seeing this.

They actually made some t shirts there, they where inspired by my presence her they go  in sequence………………..DSCN2451 that´s what the ladies always tell me. And…………DSCN2452 and alsoDSCN2449. Hey what did you expect, we are Spanish we need our afternoon “siesta” no hurries no worries that´s are national anthem. Did you notice how brilliant we are? In the last picture they originally put 9.99 Euros, then crossed it off and decided to round up the thing to 10. And then added a freaky yellow face winking at you! Bastards, what a humour. Brilliant, no wonder Spain is the most competitive nation on not only the earth but the universe.

O yeah, I have some move tooDSCN2462 look at the freaking ball is going in the middle and don´t give me grief about having those stupid little barriers on the side so the ball bounces of and gets back to the middle I was playing with mommy but I beat her !DSCN2463 Even our cool little Santa got carried awayDSCN2456. The Southern Spanish humour, this actually was a Santa in a store for not the thin people you can say.

And ofcourse made a visit to my uncle DSCN2433and grandma and grandpa all by my mothers side. My uncle died on March of this year, so I had a moment with him and gave him a cool little poem. Plus we had to buy the gay flag, it was one of his request. He never called it the gay flag, he just said the flag with a lot of colours. Good man, R.I.P big man. Beautiful church isn´t it. You have to see the inside, and is right next to the beach.

So that was my vacation, happy days.

Stay Frosty gents and gentesses.

    1. It was quite nice to have a good vacation with the family, I can´t remember when was the last time. A healthy vacation ofcourse which in turn is a happy one.

      By the way I did see your singing skills on your blog, that was some scary thing

      1. Skills…or lack thereof, but you know how it is when alcohol and old friends are involved!

        It’s been the same for me this Christmas time, quality family time comes about rarely as life goes on ~ but you treasure it more of course.

  1. I so wanna comment on the white hat, but know better…
    I loved reading this! You are such an awesome writer and with so many pictures it was all buttoned up so well!
    I am glad you saw your family and took a vacation, saw your dogs, saw some crazy shit and all that! I’m jealous! 😀
    Thank you for sharing, keep it coming. xo

  2. Great pictures. Am I the only one to say that you look very hot 🙂 ???

    Well you look great and thank you for sharing your pictures and story!

  3. Looks like you had a fab time. Sweet dogs, and can I have a cigerette please ? I ran out. I have got to get one of those T-shirts, and Lovely Church…..:)

    1. The church the houses, all the infrastructure is the old style type of houses so they´re quite beautiful.

      And no, no cigarettes, they cost me too much and it´s my 3rd love in this world. And as they say love can kill you so be it

  4. Delightful, Charly! I enjoyed every bit of your journey through each word and photograph. Thanks so much for sharing. Such a fun time you must have had!!

  5. Hello Charly,
    I enjoyed this post and photos very much 🙂
    It was a pleasure to discover your site, and enjoy your thoughtful & thought-provoking writing. Thank you also, for your nice words and support for my photography. I wish you a very Happy New Year, and look forward to sharing our creativity in 2015 🙂
    Best wishes,
    Takami

    1. You make it sound like a departure letter, for a departed… 😉

      As you know I love rolling through your blog and have a quick glance at some of the wild beast. I don´t know how you are able to take those pictures, I think you coach the animals to do what you order them to do on cue…..
      There are certain blogs that I categorise them as priority and try to pass through them as often as I can, since I like them and the people that do them. And you are obviously one of them, since after I master writing(in the next century probably) I´d love to take up photography. Maybe one day you will show me little tricks here and there.

      We´ll keep on sharing our creativity, So thank´s a lot Takami and hope today you have a wonderful day!

      1. Of course, I don’t mean to write a departure letter, hihihi 🙂
        It’s my honour that you make time to visit my humble site.
        If I ever ‘master’ photography (me too, it will be next century…) I want to try writing, and I hope to learn from your expertise 🙂 Thanks again!! And, happy new year!! (It will be new year in Tokyo in less than 6 hours!)

    1. Hey there Caroline, it was a good quality time with the family.
      By the way I forgot to jot down your email adress and can´t find in which post you gave it to me, don´t mind writing it again or just send me a blank email to charlypriest@yahoo.com and I´ll respond with some crazy little tale of mine

  6. I loved this Chuck, it made me laugha and chuckle along as i scrolled down.
    Ahhh…fuck it.
    Nice cap matey!
    Barriers whilst bowling, really? Don’t use your mother as an excuse Charles.
    Brilliant post amigo

    1. She´s terrible bowling and I had to help her out……come on, had to use her as and excuse can´t say I was the one who chicken out and asked for the little stupid barriers, that would undermine my manliness

      Did you say you laugh or chuckling…..damn

      1. I had a proper good snortle.
        Good words and pictures. The Spanish are bloody good at football ain’t they?

      2. Well I say that, but yet we still try to buy all of the spanish talent don’t we?
        Bah!
        Money money money. It was made round to go around

      3. sorry for the delay response, I´m working out of a computer that freezes up on me every second, I´m about to throw it out of the window, but better have a shitty computer than have none, I did punch the dog on the face to take out some frustrations though.

        No is not to early for sangria, I´m already with my second Jim Beam

      4. Thats what they’re there for ain’t it, dogs? To get punched and kicked…and of course to clean up any food or drink that may get spilled onto the floor or…no, I won’t write that. You never know who may read and become offended by what they misunderstand.

      5. or…I´ll say it then, my version. OR to shit and piss all over the floor so when you wake up early in the morning and your eyes are not fully open and are stumbling like a drunken sailor down the hall you can slip in one of their pisses and end up on your back in one of their shits

  7. ..marked UP – with a freaky yellow face? LMAO!
    Looks like you had a good bit of down time. You must be fairly good at cleaning n stuff to keep the white hat looking so fresh and shiny… my mothers heart is proud of you Charly Boy!
    Looking ever so …vacationy.

    1. I did look quite decent right? My mommy actually told me what to ware, she say´s I look like a criminal with my usual clothing…. (putting a freaky crying yellow face)

      1. So is it a case of ‘I am hard but my mommy dresses pretty’ ?
        She did a good job of losing the criminal appearance… you look – squeaky clean

    1. Man-boy you mean, funny thing. The people that where there with me, a.k.a my family have read this post, and have actually told me that they would have loved being where I had been…..seems I make it even more interesting writing about it and posting pictures in certain sequence than the actual reality of it. Aaaaaa! My creative mind is wonderful beyond comprehension…… Now that is snobbish.

  8. Oh so what is it that you said about ass kicking if we mentioned the hat?? Hmmm, “Why are you wearing that same hat in every photo Charly” There! I said it, Watcha gonna do about it? o_O

    P.S You are wearing hat to cover your bald head, so I stand corrected, You are bald ! Hah!

    P.P.S Good to know that you went out to have a good time, in a fresh, healthy way! So happy for you! 🙂 ❤

    Happy New Year to you too Charly. Hope 2015 proves to be even better than 2014 for each and everyone of us 😉 ❤

  9. Happy New Year, Mr. Priest!! Really enjoyed this post, and love seeing pictures of your country!! You are way to cute for your own good, no wonder you are always in trouble 😉
    Here’s to great things in the coming year!!!

  10. yo yo yo CP4 – this photo is featured as 1 of the 3 with your name when a comment comes in

    and this post is one of my favorite posts of yours – and sorry I missed it earlier- but what fun –
    the steak – mmm –
    the newspaper guy is my fav –
    but loved each pic
    along with your humor – ❤

    1. You know the fun story of the newspaper guy, well since he gave me his hat for the picture, after I through the change in his bucket I just walked off with his hat as if nothing, I had completely forgotten that had my own hat on on hand and that I was living the statue without his hat, had to hear and see the “unmoving silence newspaper man” suddenly scream and try to walk up. And me looking at the guy thinking he was nuts since you coulndn´t understand him with all that paper wrapped up, me making gestures as in “what are you doing?” and him pointing at my head. Then I realised than my friend who took the picture, well the bastard didn´t tell me anything and he was literally rolling through the floor of that street while people just stared at us both. That gave something to talk about and laughs for a couple of days.

      1. oh that is a great laugh indeed – and just curious – but in the photo it looks like he is wearing a hat and you have one on — ??? did he have two

      2. Yes, when they where about to take the photo the guy just moved and mumbled something, eventually handing me his hat. You can see in the picture that my hat is hanging on my left knee.

      3. yes _ I can see it – and seriously CP – I think when you post you should use larger images – and center everything – and then have your text in between the pics instead of “in-line” – or do what you like – but these pictures are simply amazing – the quality and the content – and the current display of them doe snot really do them justice – and well, just a suggestion – but these fun images need to be el grande baby

      4. I know, but I have no clue how to move the pictures around and how to enlarge them. Even if I move them around while writing it, when I hit the publish button it all fits as the wordpress people want them to fit.

      5. well maybe later this week we can go over a few things – I had to figure sit out to and well, I am still learning but we can at least try….

      6. Try we can, but I´m terrible when it gets to technical things, usually drive people nuts if they try to explain to me something that for them is so obvious
