Thoughts of a middle aged man…..22 February 2014

I am feeling a little ordinary today, stomach cramps and all that comes with it have hit me this afternoon. We were going to see Mum at the nursing home but not feeling like this. This morning we went to the Animal Welfare League as Brian would like a puppy, only adult dogs available and very expensive to buy, may as well go to a pet shop or buy privately.

Brian and I were intrigued by an article we saw on television through the week about women breast-feeding other women’s babies, the pros and cons. Some believe this could subject the babies to infection but I thought that was the idea behind breast-feeding, so the baby would get its mothers immunities. Lets not forget that in the not too distant past wet nurses were quite common, women employed for the express purpose, no pun intended, of breast-feeding other people’s babies.

This pricked Brian’s interest and he said, “Do you think the milk from different women tastes different, does it depend on the diet of the mother”, and interesting point. I quipped back “Don’t you remember”, at which he physically shuddered and we both collapsed into a fit of laughter. Fortunately I was bottle fed, Mum tried but her milk was clotted and it was a dry argument, lucky me!

Not sure I am looking forward to tomorrow, last Monday my grandson Cody turned 11 and tomorrow is his birthday party, complete with snakes. I have made it quite clear that no-one is to come near me with a snake, it will take everything I have to even go outside. The things we do for our grandchildren.

Another of my sons has had a tough week, it pains me to have to sit back and just observe, a band-aid and a cuddle just don’t cut it any more. All I can hope for is that in the long run it will all be good.

Thoughts of a middle aged man…..30 November 2013

What a beautiful day it is outside, the last day of Spring and we are wasting it inside. I hate the Summer, I am not a warm weather person so the next few months can fly by if they like, bring on the milder Autumn weather I say.

I am tired of these on again off again stomach cramps, not to mention the persistent cough I have had for months. When I saw my doctor he told me to start taking Brian’s asthma puffer twice a day until I see him again, and as much as I hate to say so it has helped, the cough has almost gone. I also have to go for an x-ray just to make sure there is nothing wrong with my chest. As for the stomach cramps, he just said there are a lot of stomach bugs going around and I have to ride it out.

On Wednesday night I went to watch High Risk Pro Wrestling, this is my son Blake’s business. He had arranged two international wrestling superstars, Orlando Jordan and Hardcore Holly, the crowd went ballistic when Hardcore Holly came out. I am very proud of what Blake achieved on the night.

Our landlord’s son has fixed our front venetian blind today, I was watching television the other day when it just fell out of the window onto the floor, I just about crapped myself.

My grandson Cody is coming down tomorrow, each year he and Brian put the Xmas tree up and decorate the house, it will be bedlam but Cody will enjoy himself.  Brian will enjoy himself as well, me, I just sit back and take it all in, you know what they say about too many cooks.

Now I have just enough time for a little Papa nap before dinner.
