Another month? 26th Nov 2017

Posted: November 25, 2017 in Midlife Crisis in Maryhole

Time is flying by indeed and I either have a very boring life now or just a lot busier ? Bit of both maybe 🙂

Has been a very pleasant November weather wise with some good rain and pleasant temps over night. Has been especially good for the golf course where in fact I have been spending more time mowing on many new machines . Well at least the ones I dont break on first go. Which brings us to the bunker bike which broke down last week necessitating hand raking all bunkers on Friday. No wonder I shot 86 off the stick yesterday! To be fair with a good back it is usually closer to 90…

With November almost over it leaves only one question. Too late to start on Movember ? It is a significant month of course as Mummy’s little star Ryan turns one this week. What a tough year it has been for that little family but equally how well they have coped with each new hurdle. I know where Ryan gets his toughness from. And lets not forget the amazing team at Lady Cilento who have performed both surgeries superbly and then the parents take over and nurse him back to full health. This week he even got a normal pass for hearing so its all onward and upward form here

Growing – and I do mean growing – along side him all the way of course has been Rocky. Hopefully these guys will be pals for years to come

Across town the three amigos are all progressing well at school and life in general. Will be great to catch up with them all next weekend and then again for Xmas

Hit the highway and head east and then south and come across the little hamlet of Beachmere and the remaining two of the famed six pack are living the life only a beachside residence can offer. Little surfer dude had his booteeful locks trimmed – at his request – and suddenly looks 3 yrs older. They grow up so fast

As December approaches the fairways will just have to grow a little bit more as heading off to Melboring for a week culminating in a big family reunion – including all Dohaites – for nephew Mitch’s engagement party. Will be great to catch up with all as probably wont get to Doha next February as originally planned for reasons beyond our control. Ok I hate sand in the my jocks, ya got me. A few days at Mornington Peninsula wineries and then Healesville Gin houses should have us well primed for the party at end of week. Back home and almost Xmas which means a lot of travelling, a lot of eating, and to be fair probably usual amount of drinking 😉 By time New Year rolls around will be getting serious about Ireland Fling only 6 weeks away. Which means the big 60 only 7 weeks away….. As a planner more than a doer this holiday has been planned and booked for a while so eyes scan the horizon for the next solo adventure which after many incarnations will mostly be Winter in America early 2019. The earlier the more wintry I guess. At some stage do need to have a white Xmas one year but that is best done with CLP in tow with all that mistletoe around

In sporting world the RLWC has been one of the more boring sporting events in recent times. Its Australia by how far and can Holmes score 7 tries next week ? Tonga has been great – as have all island nations – and were robbed in match against Poms. Maybe now all the fans of “one referee” may have a second think? First session of Ashes series always so important so was rather disappointing with the much touted Aussie pace attack largely insipid and certainly unimaginative. It may still have an interesting result. All hail Steve Smith. Marginally more likable than Pup I guess but such a reliable batsman

In world events glad to see Qld didnt quite fall heavily for the Hanson One Trick party. The Greens likely benefit from LNP disfavour and usual backlash against a sitting government. I usually enjoy election night coverage but this one was annoying. 7 and 9 seem to like their pit bull shock jock type political commentators that are simply embarrassing with Condren clearly the worst of the bunch. His questions to delegates last night were insulting and inane . No wonder 4BC sacked him. They have this smug look all the time like they are WH Press Secretary or something. Speaking of which, the best part of Twitter is when someone tries to fool the public and be one of the gang and get caught out horribly by the backlash. Yanks may be dumb at times but twitterati are both clever and savage at times. The latest one is #piegate with Shuckabee Handers.

Of course the Trump idiocy knows no bounds. Every second day he says or does something stupid with his knockback of Times Man of the Year simply the latest fake news. Not much to say really about the string of predatory behaviour surfacing now that hasnt been already said. Its a sad reflection of certain aspects of society. It is a shame though when innocent hard working people – like on the set of HOC -have their lives turned upside down by actions of one man especially when his particular proclivities were rather well known for a long time

Yeah its been a rather dull blog to be fair but just clearing the decks before next week kicks off. Always more inspired on the road. Especially if that road turns into a winery or brewery just down a bit. Its been a month to rejoice in the grandkids and their growth and that is nothing really to make fun off.

But man it does make you feel good.
