Belt; Brisk; Camera; Seville; John Quinn; The Memorial
2 June 2019
Well I ate breakfast
at 09:00 and went back to bed. Got up
again and finished my morning routine; made bed, washed, catheterised, dressed
in white underwear, green expensive collared T-shirt, beige woollen socks, ox-blood
Barker brogues, steel-blue light trousers with braces and belt, Everlast
fleece: just as Óg, Lisa, Gavin, Tom, arrived c 12:00. Breezy bright morning. Óg drove Lisa and the two boys in the back
seat with me in front in his Hyundai SUV down to Gyles’ Quay. I led Lisa and the boys for a brisk walk
around my usual circuit; to the end of the pier, up around the 20 steps, back
through the wasteland behind the houses to the car park where Óg was
waiting. I took a snap of Lisa and the
two boys on the pier with her mobile phone camera. We stopped at the playground and café at
Lordship. Lisa bought me a can of Coke
and told me of her plan to visit Seville next week and Chelsea later in the
summer. Anyway I enjoyed the outing. But before the visitors left Jenkinstown I
cooked my lunch/dinner. Ron came to cut
the grass but only got the back done.
Wind increased in velocity this evening for a while and a threat of
rain. I lit the fire around 17:00. Listened to John Quinn’s documentary about
Ballyfin College in the 1950’s. Watched
golf. Rosanna gone down to Greenore to
babysit while Óg and Lisa played golf.
She has just come back there now.
21:49. Kaymer, Cantlay, Scott;
vying for the lead in The Memorial.
Wheat biscuits, sliced
Fried mushrooms, fried
potato, grilled white pudding made from pork and turkey, salt, tomato
ketchup; apple tart, coffee
I have a resolution
to make porridge and catheterise before I go to bed. I spent a very uncomfortable night in bed
last night. Acid early in the night and
pain at the back of my right thigh almost unbearable towards morning. Passed a small hard motion, just a malformed
pellet really, this afternoon. 700ml in
the bag last night c 01:45. < 400
this morning and this afternoon. John
Quinn asked Seamus Heaney about what he read when he was a child. Not much, I think? Certainly none of the pulp I read
insatiably. Adam Scott finished -17,
Martin Kaymer, -15; in second and third place respectively. Partick Cantlay shot a final round of 64 to
finish on -19.
Porridge made in the
microwave with 50g of oatmeal, 300ml of milk, some old boiled rice which I
added at “half-time.”
Took a Combodart capsule
washed down by cold water from the fridge before I went to bed and after I
Lisa sent me 2
photos before bed time and chatted briefly on Messenger. The photo above is a selfie by Gavin.
