Toastmasters Conference

Friday was a pretty quiet day, all things considered. We have now played both the board games I brought back from England, games from my youth. Go for Broke and Ulcers, thank you for asking. And Viv was delighted to have all the postcards I brought, to say nothing of the old family Bible.
Today is the Toastmasters Division conference, but I am missing one of these for the first time since 1997. Although I'm not feeling too bad, the jet lag is faintly in the background and it's hard to keep awake and asleep at exactly the right times. However, not too bad considering the hammering my system has had over the last month.
I have posted the short address I gave at Dad's funeral - typing out the words I spoke (or something like them) was much easier than writing them the first time or delivering those same words last Monday. It seemed longer when I was giving it.
This morning, it looked as if we had a burst water main at the top of the road, but it turned out to be a local landowner draining his pool. Pretty big pool, it seems to be, with the capability of flooding the whole neighbourhood.
