Flying into LockDown - Covid City of Sydney from Melbourne - Victoria - for work next Tuesday... and I'll then have to stay there until they get numbers down and Melbourne VIC - Australia allows me back!! *Shock2*

At least I'll get to see my youngest son - who is also a great cook! *Wink* ... yeah... there's some benefits... hee hee (Yes, I'll be careful & I've had my first shot of Astra Zeneca).

I love Lobster, they are so good. Happy Birthday to your son.
Happy birthday to your son🎊
Sounds like a lovely birthday, all things considered! Tell him we all said, "HAPPY BIRTHDAY!" (Be sure to yell that at him. *Rolling*)

... I call him The Cookie Bro' ... he sent his older brother a box of hand crafted cookies and chocolate for his 40th Birthday.... while he plays 'American Psycho (The Musical) at The Sydney Opera House tonight - 3rd June!(Sydney Australia) ... Looking like James Dean but playing the Evil Patrick Bateman - I present to you the Sydney Theatre Award-Winning Actor - Ben Gerrard! (My youngest son)... Nero Fiddles... Marie Antionette says 'Let Them Eat Cake' ... but a mother with two sons .. one turning 40 today and one playing a lead role must bake the cake and answer the phone at midnight to discuss the play... *RollEyes* A woman's work is never done! *Blush**BigSmile*

I found a really good website for understanding and analysing poetry! *Delight*

https://www.matrix.edu.au/beginners-guide-poetry/how-analyse-rhyme/

As I struggle with the concepts and would review more poetry if I understood the technicalities better. We are all beginners at some point...

In Memory The Duke of Edinburgh - Longest Living Consort to a Monarch (Britain) - RIP 1921 -2021 RIP HRH Prince Philip-The Duke of Edinburgh - Longest Living Consort to a Reigning Monarch, HM Queen Elizabeth 2. He was born on 10th June 1921 (in the sign of Gemini) He WAS a real Gemini (a sweet and sour dish) ... there is a saying about him which goes: "He could be blunt and outspoken, to the point of offensiveness.." - BUT he was devoted to his family and gave many years of active service to the British Navy and was the originator of the Duke of Edinburgh's Award - and gave his services to Queen and Country unstintingly . RIP - to one of the most enduringly handsome men ever! *Heart*
