Sunday 15 October 2017
Sundays have now become synonymous with eating out at the same restaurant where we are now seen as regulars, The same goes for various other people so that we meet a lot of old friends there now which is rather nice.
The outlook from the bar across the golf course means looking at literally hundreds of deciduous trees and today they were at their autumnal best - all shades of oranges greens and yellows literally glowing in the sunlight. There is so much that is beautiful about Autumn isn't there? I suppose this is true of every season although I find I have to search hard to find anything beautiful about Winter unless it is a Christmas card scene seen through the sitting room window and a blazing fire in the grate.
There is something to be said for living in a place where the climate is never too extreme. On the whole we don't have forest fires, gales so severe that they bring down thousands of trees, heat waves , tornados, hurricanes, floods - well if we do then they become headline news because they are so unusual. Looking at the TV coverage of the awful fires in California and the beautiful houses of the rich which have been burnt to the ground does make one realise that how lucky we are. And the whole town of quite ordinary folk - all gone, consumed by the flames.
The hurricanes in the Caribbean area and all the homes destroyed. I could go on - I just feel lucky
that I live in good old boring UK. But if they mention Brexit one more time I shall do something I may well live to regret. (Haven't thought what yet - probably utter some of those words I never thought I would say!)
