How to post more photos than the rules allow – use collages. You can combine several of your pics into a single collage pic by using this free (you need to provide email) online tool. So by using this tool, each pic submitted may actually be many more pics combined. https://www.fotor.com/create/collage/

Telling friends about DigameXtra: Please do not hand out the submission email to persons who are not already Digamextra subscribers!!! These new people are sending in ads without having read an issue or the rules page, with many errors, creating a ton of extra work for me answering their incorrect submissions. ONLY GIVE NEW COMERS THE WEBSITE www.digameXtra.com, DO NOT HAND OUT THE EMAIL ADDRESS!!! Be sure to tell them they must subscribe and read the Submissions Rules before sending in ads!

New Coin Laundry In Torrox Costa!: My wish has been answered. A small coin laundry OPEN BLUE has opened across the street from the Madras Curry House, on the corner. It has 4 brand new industrial style machines, two 14Kg washers (€6) and two 30Kg dryers (€4), at least that’s what I thought the manager said in Andaluz. Open till 10:30pm, has sitting area and vending machines. I didn’t see soap for sale. I believe the water is filtered, as I got a quick peek behind the scenes. Naythan/Torrox Costa

Then you might want to join a weekly painting class in La Herradura on Wednesday mornings from 10.00 to 13.00. The August class starts on the 7th of August. If you cannot make it four weeks in a row, ask for availability for a two or three-week class. You can find more information via https://renatevannijen.com/art-classes/ Space is limited.
Special Summer offer till 15 September. Would you like to come for a fun morning of painting? Great with a small group of friends or family. Minimum 4 – Maximum 7 people. Not suitable for very small children.
You create your group. Price 20€ per person, this includes all materials. Normally 35€ per person. The class lasts 3 hours and is from 10.00 to 13.00

Cat for Adoption: “Fergie, the sweetest little puss cat, is reluctantly up for adoption owing to my enforced change in circumstances. She is gentle, loving, endearing and the most affectionate cat I`ve ever known. She is a house cat and a fine,faithful and mature companion who will need to live away from traffic ideally in the countryside as she is unused to roads. She has a passport, is chipped, vaccinated, fit and healthy; I can help with travel arrangements/costs if necessary. Contact me please, without obligation, if you think you can help. You won´t regret it, she is adorable.
