Today began with golf. I joined middle brother Brett and the two nephews for a round at the Par 3 course in North Adelaide, although Brett and I were there as the caddies. As Brett explained, as caddies we get to leisurely walk around with flat white coffees in hand and stand in the shade while the boys do their thing — which sounded like a good arrangement to me! I did get one opportunity to tee off on one of the holes, but the fact that I haven’t even held a club in my hands for probably 5 years or more became quickly apparent. The boys on the other hand both had great games! Then that evening, Brett put on a good ol’ Aussie bbq. June talked Dad into having one the other night (his bbq’s are held in the highest esteem), so to have the chance for another barbie was terrific. Nothing beats the simple pleasures of a sausage with sauce in a piece of bread — I have those cravings over here in the States periodically. At this point in the bbq-ing process, the potato slices are already done, the grilled onions and sausages (or “snags” in the Aussie parlance) are on their way and the steaks have just met the grill. YUM!
