I hope that some at least of the activities which swallowed up your weeks have been pleasurable.
The words are up at Mumblings.

Good morning Les,

Mmm, some fascinating insights there! Don't think I would like to go to Zimbabwe or maybe I would, seems like there's plenty of cash to liberally throw around!
Whilst China would be one of the last places I'd visit, I do agree with not airing unsuitable material whilst eating, perhaps it would go down well in Zimbabwe🤣

Last but not least, I'll be mindful of eating "tuna" in the U.S whenever I go back there.... Greg's brother, Roger lives in Pasadena, he works in developing telescopes or such and other things for JPL/NASA. Roger's 3 kids also live in close proximity and have degrees in mechanical engineering,, 2 sons and a daughter. Unfortunately their Mum passed away nearly 13 years ago from breast cancer. It's been 3 years since Dad passed away on August 25.

Hope you have been well. Looks like you had a nice dinner out with Chris, David and Mandy.

I'm looking forward to having next week off. I've been "promoted" to the accounts section at work, so different to being in the Court Room! But I am called upon to assist as a Court officer if the Court Section is short staffed.

Have a lovely day, it's foggy here at the moment but
