Thoughts of a middle aged man…..6 July 2013

Brian and I went to visit Mum in the nursing home this morning and got a bit of a shock when we walked in, sitting on her bed was an elderly gentlemen who was holding her hand. It turns out his name is John and he is a fellow resident who is widowed, and from the conversation I would say he also has dementia. They were quite cute together really and at least he gave us something else to talk about, no harm done, just two lonely old people finding a little comfort in each other’s company. It is not like I am getting a new Daddy.

When we left we went to the Munno Para Shopping Centre and had two of the worst hotdogs we have ever eaten, that is what we get for buying hotdogs in Munno Para. We also checked last weeks lotto nad had another small win, a semi regular thing for us. Thank you Universe.

After this we stopped in at Kane‘s for a cup of tea and a quick visit, and then to Ryan’s for another cup of tea and a quick visit. I have not seen Wade, Blake or Jade for a few weeks so I need to catch up with them some time soon.

Tonight we had dinner at the Sussex Hotel in Walkerville with some old school friends of mine. My dinner was a bit ordinary, chicken schnitzel with Swiss cheeses and ham topping, too much ham and not enough cheese, but we had a good chat, it was nice to catch up. The only down side, a couple of no shows that could not be helped, and the Adelaide Crows lost to West Coast …….bugger! Season over.

As we were leaving the barman called out and started to chase us down, I had forgotten my credit card.

Brian is now downstairs catching up on his Saturday night television viewing and I have had a couple of brandies so am off to bed. Goodnight and thank you for reading.

Thoughts of a middle aged man…..12 April 2013

It must be my weekend for a gripe. Being Mother’s Day we picked up Brian’s mother this morning to take her out for lunch and a country drive. We did not see my mother today, I am probably in the bad books but you get that.

We decided to have lunch at the Lyndoch Hotel, we weren’t sure we would get in as we hadn’t booked but there were very few cars there and we got a table straight away. I was not all that hungry so I decided to have the Roast of the Day, Joan ordered a chicken schnitzel and Brian had a chicken breast with hollandaise sauce. Aside from the fact we waited 45 minutes for our meals, the gravy on my roast and Joan’s schnitzel was like treacle, it was congealed, absolutely disgusting, we both scraped it off. It was not a cheap meal either, they charged much higher than Adelaide prices, and while I don’t mind paying good money for a good meal, that is not what I got today.

Fortunately the afternoon could only get better, and it did, what a great win by the Adelaide Crows over the Greater Western Sydney Giants, 132 points, almost a club record. I would love to know if Tom Lynch is related to Brian, this boy played a great game and his score alone would have beaten the Giants. Keep it up boys, the fans know you are a force to be reckoned with.

Time for me to get some beauty sleep, I am very tired and I have another big week ahead. Goodnight and thank you for reading.
