I had my breakfast on the deck and just enjoyed lounging around in the sun.....but I had chores to do and first was laundry followed by getting my clothes and suitcase sorted out...then some work on the computer...Skyped my Brother to find out what happened to him....one of his passions is golf and he is pretty good and this morning he was playing in his club's singles championship.....he was at one stage up by two shots but when it came to the final hole he missed a putt and finished up one shot behind....still so proud of you Malc and I want you to accept this on behalf of all my readers!!!!!
On his death bed they asked him where he wanted to be buried. His answer was "Surprise me."
Do you remember Bob Hope? You'll enjoy this.
I had forgotten that he lived to be 100, and also didn't realize it has been over 10 years since he died.
Always enjoyed him, his movies, and his show. He touched a lot of lives during his life.
Thought you might enjoy a bit of memory touching. Enjoy and recall a neat comedian.
__________________________________________BOB HOPE IN HEAVENFor those of you too young to remember Bob Hope, ask your Grandparents and thanks for the memories. WHAT A WONDERFUL E-MAIL.
I HOPE THIS WILL PUT A SMILE ON YOUR FACE AND IN YOUR HEART.
This is a tribute to a man who DID make a difference.

Over the weekend at a huge tennis competition in Indian Wells, California the CEO of the association made some really unbelievable comments that are sure to be his down fall this article below follows on top of that...
'Equal pay is as much a myth as it is a minefield'When you win, you earn more than the player you beat. There lies the simplicity, not elsewhere.
I think that is a great article....and tonight just heard on the news the man at the middle of the controversy has resigned his position immediately...good riddens he needs to get his thinking updated!!
At 1 pm I walked the few hundred yards to the tennis club and happy to report that I played 4 hard sets and it was so much fun and I do not know when I shall have a racket in my hand again so I savored every game.
Back home I relaxed on the deck with my book and then had supper and tonight just reading and going to watch an old classic movie Titanic.
I have really enjoyed my stay here even though I know I went on a bit about the rain it has given me a chance to unwind and relax and a bit of a joy not to be on the road.
I leave tomorrow afternoon for the Blue Mountains where I have a small studio rented for three days and then Saturday I come back to Sydney and I am staying at the same place I stayed a month ago and I have a ticket for my first Aussie Rules football game....then Sunday evening at 7pm I start the long journey to Johannesburg!!!
