Week #3668 in my life.
All weeks are simply colors on our palate of life, it just seems that the colors get brighter as we get older……does to me anyway. This week was “just another week”……is there such a thing? Surely each one is unique, cannot be modified or deleted. The only thing we can do is change the lens in our glasses and post a slightly different view of it on our memory’s hard drive. Each and every week is memorable and this last one was no different.
It was Easter weekend which came early this year. A time for a family get together although we’re fortunate enough to do this every week but this time there’s lamb on the table……a sit down dinner. Three generations! After over 3000 weeks now I sit at the head of the table, the Patriarch and carve the meat…..pretty scary really……not the meat carving bit but the Patriarch bit….the “age” bit. Now I get my son and son in law to carry chairs up and down stairs…..I just can’t do it any more.
Bubba Watson won the Masters this weekend. The most incredible second shot of the second playoff hole you’ll ever see. We even had it on over dinner which normally is a total nono in our house.
I bought another Single Malt this week at my monthly Scotch Tasting Dinner…….getting older does have certain advantages. A Hazelburn, Sauternes Wood!! Only eight years old which makes it the youngest in my collection but oh boy!! Try it if you come to the house.
My daughter and grand daughter…..who has reached the ripe old age of five……got into a discussion the other day concerning chickens and roosters, cocks and hens. I think it came from a children’s book called “Cock a Doodle Doo” or something like that. Daughter had to explain that there were boys and girls in the chicken world and left it at that……she’s only five still.
On Saturday a friend of my daughter’s was visiting the house, when asked what she was reading and learning my grand daughter said in all seriousness:
“My mummy likes cock!”
We’ll leave it at that.
