– ly unflattering self-portrait.

To start the week on a light note, check this out….

In this reflected image an overhead spotlight almost completely flares out my hair, deeply shadows my eye sockets & cheeks and highlights my moustache and beard. Someone really ought to clean that window! … and I know what you’re thinking; ‘God, this guy must get really bored!’ Yes, sometimes I do.

Same night, same window, different view and distance.

Yup… really, really bored.

What’s new?? Well, last night Lynda and I got out with friends (Janis & Eric) to celebrate Eric’s and my birthdays. Eric’s had just passed; mine comes along later this week. This is one of those big milestone ones for me… as in, some stores and services begin offering ‘senior discounts’ at this age. Oy vey, never thought I’d get this old but it beats the hell out of the alternative.

Our fave restaurant came across once again with excellent food and service. Think prime rib roast beef with lobster¬†or honkin’ big strip loin steaks smothered in Bearnaise sauce with shrimp, lobster and asparagus. I followed up dinner with a big slab of cheesecake. Mmmm….Mmmmm! To top it off Lynda treated me – bonus!!

The weather is gorgeous. Hot clear skies and muggy as hell. 30C with a humidex over 40C. Lynda has the AC running at 22C constantly so I have to outside occasionally to warm up.
