Allow me to be a little parochial today.
We are watching the America's cup races
and now that Oracle (USA) has points on the board,
and racing, it's exciting, nail biting stuff.
My father loved sailing, sailed as a boy,
but we never did. He knew all the nautical terms,
we don't, but we enjoy watching the competition races.
Especially at the moment.
We are getting up an hour early,
well my GKB is, to watch the races.
I generally get up in time to watch the second
race of the day while I have breakfast.
We know it's not over till the fat lady sings,
or the last race is over,
but at the moment it's looking good and we're
hoping for the two more wins we need
to bring the cup home.
Go Team New Zealand,
we're all "leaning with you"
and wearing our red socks!
