Lazy day Saturday. Did some washing, watered the garden and made a large zucchini quiche and not a lot else. Read some blogs, and had a nice day. My garden looks nice, after Geoff’s efforts. Tomorrow is threatening to be very hot. Darn it !

And finally a joke……
A man had great tickets for a grand final. As he sits down, another man asks if anyone is sitting in the seat next to him.
“No the seat is empty” he says. The other man is amazed that such a good seat was not being used.
The first man says “Well, actually, the seat is mine. My wife was supposed to come with me, but she passed away. This is the first grand final we haven’t been to together since we got married.”
“Oh…..I’m sorry to hear that. That’s terrible, but couldn’t you find someone else, a friend or relative or even a neighbour to take the seat?”
The man shakes his head.
“No. They’re all at the funeral.”
