Today started with rain – we have had so much rain recently that the water tank has been in constant overflow. The front lawn is about a foot high and I was looking forward to the manservant mowing it when he got back from Chile today.
But, when I looked out the window I did not see a manservant arriving by taxi; I saw raindrops and envisioned another few inches of growth in that grass.
When the manservant returns from playing astro-dweeb he generally brings something back for me. If the trip is to Australia, he arrives back looking like a Red Cross parcel carrier – full of goodies from home. When he first started going to Chile he would bring perfume back from the Duty Free store. But he was supplying more than I was using so he came up with a better idea. Something I am sure to use: Wine!
He goes to a Chilean supermarket and buys 6 bottles of Chilean wine. Six bottles will last me about 18 days. There is nothing nicer than coming home and sitting out on the deck having a glass to clear my head of the day!
