Round One: The Games vs. Reading

“I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.” – Groucho Marx

You can have the television remote and watch the Games.

We are reading.

“If you reckon literature’s consolation, you should try religion.”
“Actually, it isn’t wholly my idea.”
“No?”
“I’ve been reading this book by Kneeshaw.”
“Who?”
(Shows him the book) “Kneeshaw.  He’s a philosopher.  Frederick Kneeshaw.”
“…I think that’s pronounced Nietszche.”

– Alan Bennett, The History Boys

Two bees or not to be?

“Hi, bee…”
“Hey, bee!”

Say hello to Charlie and Brendan!

Charlie is the one on the left.  He’s younger, a bit of an attention-seeker.  Brendan doesn’t mind, he’s the quiet one.

They are part of the family, have been for about two years.

This is a family effort.  My husband took the photo, while they posed.  My daughter uploaded it for me.  

We hope to cheer up your day.

Have a laugh.

Have a nice day.
