Thoughts of a middle aged man…..27 November 2013

The gastro bug has me in its grips again, I came home from work early yesterday as I was having the most terrible stomach cramps and I am off to the doctor this afternoon. This has been going on for weeks now, no sooner do I get over it and have a good few days and it is back again.

The Dancing With The Stars finale was last night, with Cosentino the ultimate winner taking home the Mirror Ball trophy. The best three were definitely in the final, either Rhiannon Fish or Tina Arena could easily have won, but congratulations to Cosentino and his professional partner Jessica Raffa.

Turning 55 last weekend has made me a little nostalgic, things have certainly changed at a fast pace since I came into this world. I remember as a small child my mother heating up the wood fire copper to wash the clothes, we did not have a refrigerator, it was still only an ice box, and we did not have a television or home phone.

The first house I recall living in was on Main North Road at Nailsworth, now the site of a used car yard, there was no inside toilet, it was way down the back yard. Mum had a chamber pot or gazunder, so-called because it “gaz” under the bed, it must have been a joy for Dad listening to mother on that thing every night.

Now we have the internet, mobile phones, man regularly goes into space. It makes me wonder where it will end, I simply cannot imagine the world my grandchildren and great-grandchildren will inherit. One of world peace I hope.

Tonight I am off to see world famous wrestlers Orlando Jordan and Hardcore Holly courtesy of High Risk Pro Wrestling at Elizabeth East. Why not come along and check it out http://www.hrpw.com.au/
