SJ, Ix and I played two games of 10-Pin bowls together. Doesn't matter who wins (I sure didn't hahahaa!), because we always seem to really enjoy it. Brings out the competative streak in SJ for sure... wonder where he gets that from? [whistles nonchalantly...]
A cute moment was when a c.12-yo girl in a nearby lane was totally checking-out 12-yo SJ, much to his bemusement. He tried to subconsciously act so 'cool'... for all of 2 minutes, when he basically lost interest in trying to put on an 'act'! Twas very cute watching him growing up tho.
As always, spending time with my sons is wholly refreshing to my soul. Oh, you have no idea how it makes me feel!
My boys' photos to follow...
Even tho I usually have the radio on here most of the day, burbling away in the background (when I'm not listening to music!), I'd heard absolutely nothing about some motor car races here at The Mount this weekend! as soon as I'd picked the boys up, Sebbie let me know... I hadn't booked tickets or anything, and we quickly decided to check it out after we'd had our bowling fun.
It was about 3pm, and there was NOBODY at the ticket gates to be seen! There were still car races happening, so we drove upto the top of The Mount to have a great vantage point of what was happening. We'd just missed a few small rain squalls, and while the track was still damp, I kept a wary eye on some nasty looking clouds passing away behind us all the same. No worries there.
We managed to watch about five vintage car races from Reid Park, and there was about 100 people up there in total! So much for the supposedly-mighty "Easter Races" :( BUT - the vintage cars were awesome! There must have been some racing that were easily from the 1920's!!! As well as cars from the 1940's thru the the 1970's as well, like old Cortinas and Mini-Minors and that. The boys were fascinated!
One car no-one could believe must have been something from the 1920's (or earlier!), that basically looked like a giant rusty washing machine on wheels! Normally it takes a car about 3-ish minutes to drive a lap around The Mount. This particular car took about 7 or 8 minutes per lap, it was so heavy! But it was gorgeous to see someone had gone to all the effort to keep a car like that on the road, let alone racing on The Mount!
Oh... photos to follow...
I've spent the rest of my quiet Easter weekend downloading Rolling Stones songs, mostly 1970's stuff that I didn't have copies of. So yeah, now basically I have the whole Stones album catalogue to work through now. Excellent. I actually like the Stones.
Peas be with ewe
