Not sure what I'm going to write about tonight...nothing comes to mind but if I keep typing my brain may click into gear.
With regard to one of the photos of Peter and Warren taken yesterday, I made mention of the woman in the background waiting to cross the road. My good friend, Early Bird, who has better eyesight than I do, said that it was a man. I looked again and my goodness, it was too...and I was wearing my glasses when I said that. But...look at the body shape and look at the colour of the shirt...I can be excused for thinking it was a (rather overweight) woman...it's only when I look very closely at the head, that I can see it is a man. So, there you go.
I had a phone call quite early this morning from one of our neighbours in the front. On Wednesday evening is State of Origin III and she has invited me down, along with Jane, Fred, Ken and the boys to have drinks and nibbles and watch the game. Although we have won the first two, which gives us the series, we would really, really like to make it a white wash...so, it should be a good evening. I'll have my grandson, Harry, staying with me that night, so he'll enjoy having Jane and Fred's boys for company...they all get on well. Should be a good night.
I wandered over and had a cup of coffee with Ken earlier. His eldest son, Scott (Jane's brother, in case you're confused) , lives in Thailand...Phuket actually and Ken was telling me of the vagaries of the exchange rate between Australia and Thailand. If, say, Ken sent money to Scott and exchanged it for Thai baht in Australia, the rate is 24.8 baht per Australian dollar. Not bad, is it? However...if Ken sends Scott Australian dollars, the exchange rate in Thailand is 28.9 baht per Australian dollar. What would you do...yep, easy choice isn't it?
Well, I really don't have too much to say...a bit of an anticlimax after yesterday's fun. Hope you all have a wonderful week...and our friends in the USA are getting ready for their Independence Day on 04 July...so there'll be a lot of preparation for celebrations over there. Let us know how it goes...
I've just read this through. God, it's boring...sorry.
