Granny and patience is a virtue.

Hello All.

So I fetched Stepdad yesterday.
And he watched a bit of cricket with Mex.
Then we set off for his favourite spot for lunch.
He looks good for someone nearly 95!!

On the way we got a call from my brother.
The security company had phoned to say the house alarm was going off.
They could not get around the whole house but they had said everything looked ok.
Of course the old man fretted a bit.
Apparently, they told my brother they could not get passed the electric fence.
Which is strange.
They do not have an electric fence!
The security company is getting a call from me tomorrow.
I suspect they went to the wrong house.

When we were almost there,  there  was a back-up of traffic.
I think a car had rolled.
The old man said let’s turn back.
But, I persisted and after ten minutes we got through.
We got to the restaurant and there were quite a few cars.
So he said maybe we shouldn’t go.
I had just driven nearly 20 kms.
We were going!

To cut a long story short, the weather was perfect.
The food was excellent.
All was good.

I took him home and checked the house to ensure all was safe,
No problem.
Then, I came back later with lovely whole wheat rolls, lettuce and salami for supper.
Gave the rabbit some lettuce.
He looked at me as if I was nuts.
He likes bread.
I wonder if it is good for him?

I was asleep by eight thirty.
The nearly 95 year old stayed up until ten.
I never even heard him come to bed.
Frankly, do not know why I was there.
He is amazing.


  1. Glad you had a chance to catch some ZZZ’s with no alarms (or alarming events) to deal with during your stay. 😀

  2. It is good for you to spend time with step dad..judt you and him. As you have said before he is a good man and certainly does not look to be 95 make the most of it

    Have a good day

  3. He looks very good for someone of that age! I’m glad you persisted on your trip to the restaurant – I’d have been the same, if I’d driven 20k to get that far. 🙂
