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!!
At least I'll get to see my youngest son - who is also a great cook! ... yeah... there's some benefits... hee hee (Yes, I'll be careful & I've had my first shot of Astra Zeneca).
... 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... A woman's work is never done!
- 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!
Is anyone interested in becoming involved (as judges and general support ) - for a Weekly Flash Fiction Contest? I subscribed to one recently - which sadly, has become defunct.
I believe that, with 3 judges, we could participate in a contest in which we are not part of the judging panel for that week. I'm up for it - and I hope to find some like-minded writers and reviewers! Newbie Stars Welcome
