Lunch with Joe
I took Joe to my usual hangout for lunch today. He updated me on the progress and prospects for his studies and shared his thoughts for his life ahead. He also told me about his new Chinese girlfriend and how she acquired him. Asian patience paid off! Joe is hard to impress when it comes to ladies but this lady broke through.
After lunch we went back to my place for tea and cakes on the verandah, where we mostly discussed politics. I updated him on the facts and history that you don't normally hear -- about apartheid, early 20th century politics etc.
Anne had a rather awful surgical procedure today so I went up to the hospital in the evening to see her. Getting old is no fun.
