Joe inspects the cake

Thursday 14th December 2017, 8.45pm (day 2,303)

Joe and cake, 14/12/17

Among the subjects Joe is taking at school these days is cookery (aka ‘food technology’ or some other such euphemism). Every Thursday we are becoming used to him bringing home food that has always been more than just palatable. This ginger cake was lit with a candle as a proxy celebration for my Dad’s birthday (happy birthday Dad….). And very tasty it was.

Joe plots his next move

Thursday 30th November 2017, 7.55pm (day 2,289)

Joe playing Harbor, 30/11/17

Evening entertainment at the end of a very cold day. Joe contemplates whether he should exchange three cucumbers for a pallet of fish in the costermongers’, or possibly whether he should felch his mortgage and cast down his pie to prevent his opponents accumulating so many nickels that he will no longer be able to buy any rabbits. At least, I think those were the rules. My haziness on these matters is probably why I finished third (out of three).

My son and my father

Friday 8th September 2017, 4.10pm (day 2,206)

Son and father, 8/9/17

Apart from the fact that Joe, when stood up, is now some six inches taller than his grandfather, I would suggest that this photo is a pretty decent summation of how both of these people look at this point in time. Which is why I like it.

Joe, Sunday, pub

Sunday 3rd September 2017, 5.40pm (day 2,201)

Joe, Sunday, pub, 3/9/17

Revenge for a photo-bomb… he then changed his mind about being in the picture. Joe’s 94th appearance on the blog, so it is. A quiet, uneventful weekend, but it was always going to be.

Joe and the Old Man

Wednesday 9th August 2017, 3.10pm (day 2,176)

Joe and the Old Man, 9/8/17

I might be ‘back at work’ but it’s still the summer break for Joe and he needs encouragement to do a little more than just sit at home when there’s so much pleasant countryside out there. He was moved to say that the Lake District ‘is quite a nice looking place isn’t it’, today. Well, yes it is. And to have some father-son time: hence one reason for the title of this shot. That’s also Coniston Old Man ahead: what it should look like, out of the mist (cf. the picture taken two weeks ago today).

Joe and the hedge

Saturday 8th July 2017, 3.10pm (day 2,144)

Joe in hedge, 8/7/17As predicted on Thursday, the weekend is seeing a family effort with manual labour on the allotment. Joe is contributing his bit, having discovered power tools (namely the hedge trimmer), although this photo doesn’t really reflect this. It’s interesting to compare this photo with another one of him in a hedge, taken in January 2012; that’s what adolescence does to you (visually anyway).

Lunch (jigsaw) break

Thursday 1st June 2017, 1.40pm (day 2,107)

Jigsaw break, 1/6/17

Exciting times in the household as the jigsaw map of Brighton that was a Christmas present is finally finished five months later. With all three of us present to witness this stellar event, you can tell it’s the half-term holiday. Life doesn’t get more uneventful than this.

Joe and his J2O

Sunday 28th May 2017, 4.30pm (day 2,103)

Joe drinking, 28/5/17

Joe’s first appearance on this blog was on its 9th day, September 3rd 2011, in which he was pictured in this room doing much the same thing as here, drinking a fruit juice (always still — Joe doesn’t do fizzy drinks). He — and the room — look somewhat different now, 2,094 days later.

Leaving the house

Sunday 2nd April 2017, 4.25pm (day 2,047)

Mod leaves house, 2/4/17

An opportunity to picture the new coat that Joe acquired for his birthday last month, with suitable patch now installed. His choice, in case you were wondering — he does claim to like this popular beat combo.

Choosing dinner

Sunday 12th March 2017, 4.45pm (day 2,026)

Dinner menus, 12/3/17

Uneventful Sunday due to having to work, after which the in-laws came round and took us out for dinner, which was nice. Here we study the menus attentively although four of the five diners all ate the same thing anyway (roast lamb). And very nice it was too.
