On Saturday night I arranged a dinner for Sandi to meet Jenny. Sandi is the daughter of Joyce -- and Jenny knew Joyce from age 17 on -- so Sandi was keen to hear some history about her late mother.
We had the dinner on my verandah so Jenny came over early and cooked us up a gluten-free lasagna. Fortunately, Jenny is a keen cook so she can make even gluten-free food taste good.
Jenny and Sandi hit it off together immediately so there were many stories told. I mainly supplied a bottle of my favourite Tyrrells Verdelho.
Then on Sunday I was again social. Joe and I had our usual Sunday brunch at the nearby pieshop and then Joe drove us over to Suz & Russ's place to deliver presents to Dusty, whose birthday it was. He was already swamped with presents but no matter. That's the way of it these days. One of the things I gave him was a plastic trumpet, on the grounds that all boys should have a trumpet. It was however a very quiet trumpet. He liked it, though.
I got into quite a long discussion with Russ about matters connected to his work -- refrigerants, occupational licensing, trade training etc.
I also had a good chat to Suz, reminiscing about when she and Von were kids and teeners. I asked her why she had been such a grouch when she was a teen. She said it was just teenage hormones and rebellion. I used to call her Lady Fun when she was a kid and in her post-teen years she has resumed that happy disposition.
Joe played a Pokemon game with Sahara. We left around noon.
