Thoughts of a middle aged man…..18 July 2013

A few weeks ago Brian was involved in a minor car accident, and this week the car finally went in for repair, and this morning Brian was quite excited as he was due to pick it up. Not  thirty minutes after picking it up and he was rear ended by a taxi, he just can’t take a trick. Last time he had a work colleague with him, this time it was a guy from the crash repair, at least he had witnesses both times to confirm he was the innocent party. Unlike last time this time he jarred his back, something he did not need with his history of back problems. All I have to say on the subject is that I would like to thank the Universe for watching over him again, he may be slightly damaged but he is here, and I am grateful it was not worse.

On top of this Brian has not been well for a few days, he has one of those horrible lurgies that do the rounds this time of year. I think it is time he started to have a flu jab as he cannot risk passing anything on to the residents of his villages. Touch wood I have avoided anything this year, I hope my luck holds out.

Today someone who used to be very special to me would have turned 71, unfortunately he was tragically killed at just 39 years of age. Uncle Max you will never be forgotten, you are always in my heart and I miss you still. Strange to think you were taken at 39 and I am about to turn 55.

Brian is downstairs watching Johnny Depp in one of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. I think Johnny Depp is an excellent character actor, he can pull off any role, and to think it all started with 21 Jump Street. I am unsure if he has ever been nominated, but I find it truly amazing he has never won an Oscar. I think that he, along with Leonardo Dicaprio, are two of the best actors in Hollywood, and neither one has an Oscar to their name. I suppose an award is not everything, just the icing on the cake.

It is going to be a miserable night here in Adelaide, it is very blustery outside and the best place for me is bed. Goodnight and thank you for reading.
