24 Hours

The hilarious things you inadvertently overhear in a public place!

I'm sitting quietly, chomping on a sandwich downtown, when the young couple sitting almost right next to me... her phone goes off. I couldn't help but overhear her side of the albeit short conversation...

"Well, there goes our inheritance! I'll have to call you back..."

(Turns and speaks to her boyfriend/partner): "I don't believe it... my dad just got himself engaged... to a girl younger than I am...!"

I had to get up and walk away... it was so hysterically funny. You can't make stuff like that up!
It's amazing what a difference 24-hours makes weather-wise. Today has been sunny, warm and almost windless... not a wisp of snow-clouds in sight. Almost a gloriously-Spring day in some respects.

Alas and alack, it's gonna be cold here overnight tho... they're predicting -3 / 25f ! But no snow in sight.

My ancient ugh boots have yet to make an appearance yet, tho... thankfully!

I ended-up going for a short drive in the glorious sunshine this arvo... about 30kms / 18 miles in each direction, out on a beautiful country road leading NE out of town, towards a locale called Limekilns. I haven't been out that way in many a year. There's nothing out there, as such. Just a few assorted remote farm houses and sheds. It was just the drive that made it so enjoyable, on a lovely paved winding quiet country road.

I love living out here!

Today I'm listening to:

Great T-Shirts - one of my absolute favs!
Peas be with ewe
