MONDAY MORNING

After a wet and windy weekend - a big branch off one of our trees fell down next to the deck but no chairs were blown over fortunately- Monday morning is calm and sunny. It's perfect for walking, golfing, kayaking or tennis but....I can't do any of that as I'm still hobbling about with the aid of crutches.
I tried to do without the crutches entirely but The Old Girl who doesn't go back to Auckland until this afternoon gave me a bollocking - "You won't make it any better doing macho stuff like that Matey!" - so I'm experimenting with just one crutch.



I'll have to drive her into town for the bus later (luckily our car is an automatic) but in the interim I'll read and write some posts. Richard's was predictable. I knew that he'd delete his comments and apologise to Robert for being vitriolic. Mind you, Robert's annoying 'born again' evangelism can be infuriating. I rise to the bait on this myself and have to try to stop myself reacting but often it's hard not to scream for reality and common sense in face of this religious nonsense and claptrap.


Hey!

I got distracted by having to feed the cat and now I've run out of things to say. This could have been a CURMUDGEON EXPRESS post or even a MUNDANE CURMUDGEON.
(Sigh) - so many curmudgeons but I'll have to GET cracking if I want to get over 100 posts written before the end of the month.

The Curmudgeon Inc is sort of like when you've been drinking and you go outside for a pee and it sprays everywy.

"That's good. Empirical knowledge is always comes in handy when educating the younger ones."

This of course should have read as - 'That's good. Empirical knowledge always comes in handy when educating the younger ones.'

Sorry about that - I blame the Villa Maria Rose.
