Today it’s really windy here in paradise, so not a day for walking on the beach. We did go to the gym this morning, and I did my usual circuit of treadmill, arms, legs, tummy and posterior toning. It wasn’t very busy, because if the weather isn’t too great, people here tend to hit the malls. Shopping is a national sport, so I do try to keep away on a Saturday.
Yesterday we went off up the hill to visit mom. She treated us and my sister to a very tasty fish and chip lunch in the dining room of her community centre. Hubby, my sister and I were the youngest there by at least twenty years, but it was a really jolly occasion, and mom does like to show us off to her friends. They do a good three course lunch for only R35 ($3.50) each, and this includes tea and coffee. None of us were tempted by the dessert thought, which was very wobbly jelly topped with a layer of custard and sprinkles. Mom, who isn’t nearly as fussy as her kids, took hers home for teatime.
I have so many photo challenges lurking in my inbox, and need to sift again through my hundreds or maybe even thousands of pics, so thought I’d procrastinate a bit and do something easy, like the ‘Daily Prompt’ I saw on Friday. It was simply ‘Hahaha’.
I’m sure you all have questions which niggle you on occasion, so I decided to add a few more to that list.
Why does the sun lighten our hair, but darken our skin?
Why can’t a woman put on mascara with her mouth closed?
Why is bottled lemon juice made with artificial flavouring, but dish washing liquid is made with real lemon juice?
Why don’t we ever read of a Psychic winning the Lottery?
Why is the man who invests all your money called a ‘Broker’?
Why isn’t there mouse-flavoured cat food?
Who tastes dog food when it has a new improved flavour?
Why didn’t Noah swat those two mosquitoes?
Why are they called apartment when they’re all joined together?
Why do they call the airport the ‘Terminal ‘ if flying is so safe?
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

A very tough day indeed, Frank, I’m afraid I haven’t got the answer to your question either. 😕
I’m going to practise now putting on my mascara whilst keeping my mouth firmly shut – that in itself will be a big achievement for me
