Megan, Selo & Co.

Megan and Selo joined us for a BBQ dinner this evening. Selo brought his two brothers and sister and, of course, Miko as well as Mimi and Layla. So we had quite a time - swimming in the pool, playing games, running around and of course eating - what a meal: BBQ'd chicken legs, salmon and lamb. Bean salad, Caesar Salad and Potato Salad.

Layla, Miko and Selo enjoy a dip in the pool.

Miko enjoys some time with his youngest Uncle.

Maryse serves Aisha, Ahmed and Megan.
Mimi digs in.
Miko enjoys himself on the back lawn.
Is this what one refers to as Miko "beating the bushes"?
Thanks for the visit guys. It was a great evening. And we enjoyed meeting Selo's family.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …
