Yesterday.15-7-2019.

      YesterdayI was told by my good neighbour; that her husband Spiros, a Mediterranean gentleman had passed away Aged  86. Much sadness.
       It was also my only sisters birthday who would have been 91 but sadly departed this world 20 years in the past.
Also, yesterday number one son Chris and I did a big grocery shop at Aldi which made other shoppers eyes pop, the bill came to 345 dollars, Just things we had run out of., it was exhausting packing it away at home.
     Today !6-7-69 marks the 50th anniversary of the Apollo moon shot departed 2100hrs BST and arriving on my Mothers birthday 21st July BST. On arrival, it was discovered that a COW had already jumped over the moon.
    TodayJuly 16 is the anniversary of the Muslim calendar which commenced in the year of our Lord 622 when Mohammad fled from Mecca to Medina, should he have missed his flight the world may
be a better place today.
    Also today back in 1945 the first Atomic bomb was tested in the New Mexico Desert and eventually saved the lives of possibly millions including those fighting the Forgotten war in the Pacific - yours truly at 19  included.
And now finally' Thank you Nigel'; My Nephew and his family in the Uk, for the solitary birthday card I have received so far today my 93rd Birthday.
 I shall be lost for 'WORDS" this week.

Monday, 15th July is the birthday of a friend of mine...a friend of long-standing. She turned 84 years on Monday. We chatted at length via telephone. I sent her a card with some Scratch-Its...and...she won $2.00 is one, and $5.00 in another!!! Better than nothing! :)

Happy birthday Uncle Les 😘 I hope you have a good day
I’m hoping by now that you have received our card, maybe I didn’t allow enough time but I am thinking of you today and as always Auntie Rosemary 🌹
We’re having quite a decent summer so far, not too hot but pleasantly warm, to be honest we could do with a bit of rain for the garden
Steve has been enjoying the cricket 🏏 I’m sure you’ve been following it too, what did you think of the result?
Enjoy what’s left of your birthday, I’ll be in touch again soon
Lots of love and hugs to you
Christine xoxo
