Contemplation

Evening all.
Writing this as I’m sat in my garden, drinking an ice cold Moretti with the sun shining. Wonderful.

Something I read on the thread about Rashford written by GregOle (spelling) got me thinking. Life can be wonderful, and on a day like today, with the sun shining, beer in hand, I should be grateful for what I have achieved so far in my life.

Pandemic aside, because this has affected us all to one degree or another, I really should appreciate where I live, the love of my family, and the support and friendships, not only from friends, but colleagues too. I suppose the pandemic has brought this into sharper focus in a way.

However, life, as idyllic as it may sound from my comments above, has a habit of kicking you in the balls when you least expect it. It is because of my relationships with family, friends, and colleagues, that I am able to carry on when things look their darkest.

My message to all you out there: Appreciate what you have, treasure every waking moment, and realise that it’s the small things that matter. Love your family, whatever they do.

As the saying goes (if it’s a saying where you are); Life is not a rehearsal, make the most of it.

Apologies for a sentimental (of sorts) article. Perhaps I’ve had a Moretti too many. Won’t stop me having a few more however.

Looks as much like a joint as it does like a carrot.
But look into its eyes, not around them, not near them, look into them. And you haven't smoked Canadian carrots.

You Canadian types may have beady little eyes and flapping heads and laugh about farts all the time but in some ways you are ahead of the crowd…
----------------------------------------------------------------------
The only farts I laugh about are old ones like you.Okay? Okay?

I loved the way a pair of Canadians ripped on America’s perspective of Canadians by taking the pisss out of themselves. That show is genius parading as the most base humor possible

Right. Never found it very funny, maybe too old.

Worth giving it a rewatch, especially the political ones, it’s incredibly childish/crude humor that’s very politically and cleverly thought out. It’s way smarter than it appears on the surface, way smarter. Finger is bang on the political/social pulse. It’s just dressed up as the lowest form of humor possible.

I have the inestimable luck to have a cheerful disposition. None of it down to me, all luck. My mother said I never cried as a bany but laughed or smiled a lot. I'm pretty much the same now, so I do enjoy my life, which fell in my lap really.
Just as I was taken to Old Trafford when I was seven, not Maine Road. A lucky escape.

I hope I'm like you when I get to your age. You seem to really enjoy life.
