We had an early start this morning picking up Wade and Gink from Adelaide Airport. The boys had six days in Cairns and they certainly crammed a lot in, they both looked relaxed and happy, what more can a father ask.
Tonight we went to a barbecue at their house for Wade’s 25th birthday which is actually tomorrow. In all three of my sons and four of my grandchildren were there, it was a good night. We came home quite early as Wade had a number of his friends there as well, sometimes Dad just has to know when its time to go.
I am very pleased to see the Fremantle Dockers will be playing in their first AFL Grand Final next Saturday against Hawthorn. Both teams deserve to be there but I really hope Fremantle take the honours, it is their nineteenth season and it would be great if they could have a win.
It has been a beautiful day in Adelaide today, a little rain this morning, just enough to water the lawns. Tomorrow we are house hunting again, we are both looking forward to buying our own home again.
I’m a bit pooped right now so think I will hit the sack. Goodnight and thank you for reading.
I’m feeling a tad weary tonight as I had an early morning start. My youngest son Wade and his partner Gink flew to Cairns for a holiday this morning and big-hearted Dad offered to pick them up and take them to the airport. North Haven to Salisbury Downs to Adelaide Airport then to work. I no complain, I would do it again, but then I remembered that Number 1 son Kane has to drive almost straight passed the airport every day to get to work. Duh!
Yet another example of just how small Adelaide is, the other day I had an AGM and I was a bit early as was one of my clients so we started chatting about things in general. As this particular client is a dentist talk soon turned to the braces I had on my teeth when I was in my early teens. I mentioned how uncomfortable they were 40 years ago and I hoped that technology had improved them.
For some reason I still remember the name of my orthodontist, Dr Jenner, low and behold he is still practising and my dentist client knows him. I though he was old 40 years ago but it turns out he was only in his mid twenties. I also found out that there are only around 40 orthodontists in all of Adelaide, who would have thought.
It is blowing an absolute gale outside, I can hardly hear myself think. Time for bed I think. Goodnight.
