Catch Up

A catch-up post because I was sick AGAIN this weekend. What a waste of a perfectly good weekend. All I managed to do was to make two batches of plum sauce from the plums off our tree. Lovely rich dark red plum sauce. Its a wonderful colour. And I can't find any corks to cork it with...

But the reason I'm playing catch-up is that I wanted to tell you about Friday night, Fries on Friday with our friends. Often its just Robert and Jennifer who meet with us to talk about the week just gone but sometimes others join us and this week Judith, a semi-regular and her daughter Clare joined us. Then Jeannie, Alex, Aaron and Miles arrived followed by Stacy. What a party! Terry and I just sat and enjoyed the camaraderie, all unsuspecting that it was in fact a party. Even when the singer, Johnny announced that there was a couple there celebrating their wedding anniversary we didn't 'get it' until, that is, he said they were celebrating their 37th Wedding Anniversary. And then we clicked - he was talking about us and he asked everyone there to join in singing a song, composed by Judith and Clare. Here are a couple of the 8
!! verses sung to the tune of "She'll be coming round the mountain" and they allude to the fact that Terry has often described his job as similar to that of a bumble bee, pollinating flowers:

And Terry, he has sex with the flowers

And Terry, he has sex with the flowers
And Terry, he has sex
And Terry, he has sex
And Terry, he has sex with the flowers

And Janice she don't care, no she don't
And Janice she don't care, no she don't
And Janice she don't care,
And Janice she don't care,
And Janice she don't care, no she don't

Yes, what lovely friends. Fortunately I'm spending more time away from the flowers now so am not so tired at the end of the day. After about 20 years working with the delphiniums the aroma and pollen tends to put me to sleep!
