    Well today was yet another wonderful experience. I decided to go to the local butcher in Conil, I have been there twice before and enjoyed it, its a lively tiny little shop always full of old spanish senoras.

    Before anyone says it, yes, I do understand that is why I probably feel so comfortable there:Rofl1:

    I took Bryan with me today, big mistake, he nearly passed out and had to go out of the shop. :Eeek:

    He was ok whilst the old lady in front of me was telling the butcher what she wanted, but when the butcher cut off the turkey's neck then showed it to her amidst lots more instructions from her the butcher then cut off its head and started to take some spare skin off it before chopping it in half lengthways!

    Bryan was horrified. He can't imagine what on earth the old lady is going to cook with it and doesn't recall ever seeing anything like that in Asda.

    I don't think I'll ever get him off the beans and sausages now! :Eeek:

    We've got grounds for divorce here, this is intolerable treatment. I urge you to desist.

    I love shops like that, always remember going into a fishmongers at Retamar (just outside Almeria) with my friend and she asking the chap to fillet the fish which he did and was then gonna put all the head and all he'd removed into the bag and her saying to me when we came out - "Jen if you are planning on shopping here any time in the future when we aren't here with you, you really must learn the Spanish verb 'to want' " LOL (or NOT want!!!!)

    A tourist, new to Spain, goes to a fancy restaurant for dinner. He finds it very difficult to understand the menu. As he looks around the restaurant, he notices a diner at the next table is being served a very attractive garnished dish with two gigantic meatballs in the middle. It looks and smells delicious.

    When the waiter asks him for his order the man, in very basic Spanish and sign language, asks him about the meatball dish. Fortunately the waiter speaks very good English and he explains that the meatballs are bull's testicles, and when the bull loses the bullfight, the bull is brought to the restaurant, and this beautiful dish is made.

    The diner tells the waiter that he would also like bulls testicles for dinner, but the waiter tells him that only one bull a day is brought to the restaurant, but that he can have this dish tomorrow night, if he wishes. The diner agrees.

    The next evening the diner goes to the restaurant and, as arranged, orders the testicle dish. When his food is brought to the table, he notices that the meatballs are extremely small - nothing like the size of the dish the previous evening. He mentions this to the waiter. The waiter replies, ''Well, sir, you have to understand, sometimes it is the bull that wins the bullfight''.

    I bought black pudding last week, he was not amused! :BigGrin:

    I think he wants to go home - just to do some shopping perhaps buy a 37ft RV load it with sausages and beans and come back again :Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    We went into our supermarket on site and picked up what we thought was oven chips, all in Spanish, put on baking tray and 45 minutes later had a look thought they were cooked nice golden brown, served them up CALAMARIE or as we now know slimey chips YUK:Rofl1::Rofl1:
