I was out with a very longstanding friend a couple of nights ago and he came up with the old saw of “yeh, 2023, plans?”
I replied that I had a mind to impose on the hospitality of a friend in Munich twice this year: High End and Oktoberfest. He invited me over for Oktoberfest last year and it didn’t work out. We all know eachother from ~40 years ago, but I’ve kept up with Munich guy and drinking buddy hasn’t.
After that I gave it no more thought.
Anyway, at the end of a drunken afternoon he piped up “err, if you’re talking to, err, yer man, could you, err?”
Oktoberfest, geriatrics with prostate issues remix
Desertfest Antwerp but that’s a heckin’ long way out
The plan was for a two-centre rail holiday, Antwerp (friends girlfriends want to eyeball the engels dolt’s wife) and Luxembourg (wife’s cousin) but I think this will be trumped by BiL’s hockey thing in Italy
Mr. MWS would rather like to be enveloped in pudendum on a giant, well oiled inflatable mattress.
Stronzi would like a new glue trough and to be made a Lord. Either / Or
I would like a quiet warm softly furnished and dimly lit room sufficient to hibernate in until May. Oh, and pate.
5 Springsteen concerts (yes I am that sad) , road trip from Chicago to Austin with my mates based around Americanafest in Nashville. Most importantly going with my youngest son to his Haematology appointment on Wednesday to see if the chemo’s worked on his Lymphoma
I’d like to get passports for Donna, Amy and myself (Sam has one now) so we can finally get the kids on a plane. Scary to think that with one thing and another, Donna and I haven’t been abroad in the time we’ve been married!
We need a shower sorting out.
We really need a new kitchen, desperately.
A hard floor in the living room would be good.
Settle and the walk up to one of the three peaks with @octh was really a huge wake-up call for me fitness wise, I really struggled at one point on the way up - I need to get fit again!
Garden - we still need one.
It’s highly unlikely that we manage to do all these things this year, but it’s a to do list of the big stuff .
