Sunshine and thawing.

We woke to sunshine, I know not something unusual for those living in the southern part of Middle Earth but here in the north it is a warming sight. The last week has been cold, windy and wet. Many a walk with Samuel led to a soaking. Watching Robert just hit a perfect shot onto the green, I remember last week, see previous, and marvel at the small joy of warm weather, sun giving the illusion of the coming summer. There is a small caution, the temperature is hovering just above 6 deg C, but lets pretend.

I waffle on, what was I going to say? I was going to comment on just how little time we put into sending out an email, letter or text. I received an email from Gary of Middle Smiths, father of Danial of Middle Smiths who has just had a birthday.

“Happy Birthday Dan the Man, now you are getting older you can Sort it out Yourself, leave Dad out of it.”

The email was well thought out, a reconciliation of an account. He took time over the verbs, nouns and layout. He achieved a masterful balance of credits and debits. All culminating into the grand ending, totalling the lefts and rights to form a neutral balance of accounting. I go further, a masterpiece, art in the accounting. That boy knows how to add.
