....Well it is up to now, it is expected we'll have lunch early, then a nod in the afternoon then visit the club about 6pm for the new year festivities.
The past two weeks have been a mixed bag of visits by friends and rellies with more in the offing. the number of greeting cards received has slumped to an all time low; which means fewer to be sent next year, assuming I'm around to send them.
Two weeks back, our youngest son 40 had a tiff with his friend 'B' 27 of many years who then . invited a new friend to fill the vacuum. 'B' was woken by the fuzz on the blower, who informed 'B' that his car had been wrapped around a tree and the occupant was in possession of his wallet and I D and had been hospitalized and in intensive care. 'B' had been the registered owner of the late model Commodore; given to him as a present from his mother (A senior head of dept at a NSW Prison) - a few weeks previously. 'B' visited us the following day to impart the news, who after I questioned him ; informed me, that the sodding car was not insured, I then informed 'B' he was a complete idiot, 'B' replied " mother is sending up another new car tomorrow as a replacement, so that I can visit her at Christmas, I then asked 'B ' if he had visited his new friend (lover) in the hospital, "No" he said-"He died two days ago".
Son 40 now has a new friend 26, an actor and script writer. although I am not into that sort of stuff , secretly Rosemary and I think he is quite good looking.
Over a period of a few weeks I have won the club Sunday trivia quiz three times at three attempts, being a Brit and knowing more than the locals about Strayer really gets them pissed off.
It seems that our #1 son the D J will come to the club tonight also #5 son and new actor friend too. Should raise a few eyebrows. I shall comment on the nights proceedings providing they have any worth.
A HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE
