As someone recently pointed out, I am very much a "glass half empty" kind of guy.

 

That being said, occasionally there is a beam of joy in the misery that is my life.

 

Today,it was coming home and seeing my mum, bruised and worn by her recent troubles, but hanging on in there like the tough old bird that she is

 

Nothing could give me greater pleasure than seeing her at the window of our family home waving to me as we pulled into the driveway

 

So what made your day today?

In this order, for today:

 

Photos I loaded onto Ofoto of my family, and shared with them through a e-mail :lol: One family member in particular is very cute, and resembles me when I was young, with very pudgy cheeks :lol:

 

Thoughts about a possible sashimi sampler at Bar Masa tonight (I'm refusing on reasons of principle to pay $300+/person for raw fish, with all respect to Japanese cuisine, in any setting), or, more likely given my lethargic state, 1/2 bottle of Krug for myself tonight instead. I have a bottle of milliesime Schramsberg Rose open, but it just wouldn't do

 

A book I bought recently second hand called Vins de Reve, in French, by Nicholas de Rabaudy, on the history of various French Chateaux. It contains 2 pages on Haut-Brion, which has always been my favorite wine :wub:, but which I've been a bit more focused on of late.

 

Thoughts of choosing a wine refridgerator, and then placing some of the bottles of Haut-Brion I've been buying (not that many :lol: ) in it

A moderator writes: oops, I accidentally wrote over g.j's message, and it was so jolly too. I shouldn't be allowed near these controls.

 

Apologies. Feel free to repeat.

The tax man’s taken all my dough,

And left me in my stately home,

Lazing on a sunny afternoon.

And I can’t sail my yacht,

He’s taken everything I’ve got,

All I’ve got’s this sunny afternoon

Hanging out yesterday with Master Jack Hughes, my favorite two-legged boy. :wub:

 

My favorite four-legged boy jumped onto the bed to cuddle at 3:30 AM, and I noticed that he was more, uh, fragrant than is desirable in a bed-sharing feline. (He has a sensitive stomach, and a very furry backside...you get the idea.) After a cleanup session, which he hates but tolerates, he jumped back into bed and cuddled. He still loves me.

Yesterday, and then again this a.m, I received an e-mail message from Free Camera with the agreeably pithy subject line, "Win a Free Digital Camera."

 

Polite enough, I think, even for my delicate sensibilities.

Cath, whatcha feedin' him?

We've gone through several dry foods (I gave up on canned) - at the moment it's Eagle hairball formula, and I'm planning a gradual transition to Royal Canin Sensitive Stomach since both kitties much prefer it. Mackie has been doing really well lately; last night was the first time I've had to call him Mr. Stinky Butt in a while.

 

His breeder says Mack's dad has the same tendency and the Royal Canin is the best she's found for him.

My e-mail is working again. I'd like to take the credit, but I have no idea what I did.
