ABC Local Radio used to have news in brief on the hour when there wasn't a major bulletin due. It was called the News in Brief and went for maybe three minutes. It had a very different musical theme to the Majestic Fanfare or the briefer version of MF that is used for minor news bulletins. It was known in house as Tarzan's Theme.
News in brief from home. R mostly works three days a week but this is his four day week, that is the Thursday Mother Day when he takes her out. It did not go so badly. Her complaining was minimal and she dissed Sister at every opportunity, which made R happy.
How very dare our neighbours move? They are rich people of Hong Kong origin. The bought and moved into the building even before the hot water was working and slept on the floor for the first couple of nights. We don't know their names but we always have nice chats with them when we meet. We have seen the son change from a gangly 11 year old kid into a handsome 22 year old man. Of course they don't owe us an explanation, but we are surprised and unreasonably feel annoyed. R has searched the net hard and there is no sign of them renting their place out or it being sold.
A friend was in Cambodia last month. He sent us a post card from Siem Reap where the Angkor Wat temples are. Last week when we saw him, he said a post card he sent had just arrived in the US. Ours and other ones he sent to Australia arrived today, 10/10, sent 05/09. Even re-routed via Austria, as our overseas mail often is, it is a long time for a mail delivery.
You may remember I renewed my driving licence. Today the new one arrived in the post. I compared my old photo to my new photo. I don't think I have aged that much but I seem to have gone from having a long face to a round face. Matches your guts, as R ever so kindly put.
