A Lens For My Birthday

Helen and Bill visited this morning, bringing presents for my birthday – a fine bottle of Malbec and

zoom lens mug

a zoom lens.

This afternoon I watched the World Cup football match between England and Sweden.

Later, with Becky and Ian, we dined at Lal Quilla, where we had not been since before my surgery. The staff were rather concerned at our absence. My photographs are now on the walls of the restaurant. My choice of food was king prawn Ceylon with special fried rice. We shared onion bahjis and egg paratha. Becky drank a rosΓ© wine and the rest of us, Kingfisher. I was pleased to be able to sit comfortably in the restaurant.

Did I mention that the camera lens is in fact a drinking mug?

  5. A belated yet sincere Happy Birthday, Derrick! Is the drinking-mug-lens simply a way to bring your drink closer to you without your reaching?? (…weak, I know!?).
    Hope you enjoyed your day!
