Mr and Mrs Caveman

Meet Mr and Mrs Caveman.

Gra and Rog, the cave dwellers

This is Gra and Rog.

Gra is the female of the clan while Rog, with his beard, is obviously the male of the clan. Both are equally in charge and not at all in charge, at the same time.  They were once human, but after 4 days of a rare November Adelaide heatwave, they have reverted back to their cavemen habits.

Gra tends to the day to day computer work at home while Rog does homework when home and twice weekly gets on his Suzuki-saurus and heads to the city to learn more about programming than even he thought was possible to learn.

When together, the once vibrant couple now greet each other with grunts.  Current habits include dunking their head under a spray of cold water to keep cool along with a couple of cold showers a day.  Another favourite pastime is watching TV in their darkened bedroom with the ceiling fan on.

As the heatwave progresses (it is now expected to ease up slightly on Monday), it is a concern how far this pair will regress.  Will they start flinging objects and one another or simply fade into the cave and cease all communication all together? Only time will tell.

We don’t know why she’s smiling in both photos, but perhaps she has just reached the point of no return and her mind no longer comprehends misery. Whatever, best to leave her to her smiles and not interrupt her evolution… or was that devolution?

18Jan22 Look at how clean and soft Noble's fur looks.  He scrubs up so nicely.  I've seen this cat come in looking like he'd had a wild night on the town and then later he looks so well groomed you'd think I'd taken him to be brushed and fluffed!  #catsofinstagram  #tripodkitty #threeleggedcatsofinstagram  #2022pad #latergram

28Jan22  Finally a good combo for playing my favourite 16grid sudoku game.  I have played this particular app on my original iPod Touch and my iPhone 4.  I had better eyes then, but also that app allows you to zoom in so you can see one the grids clearly which helps.  The iPad version doesn't have this feature sadly. However, between a pair of reading glasses or now with my new magnifying glass, I can get back to playing again.  I'm no whizz kid at this game - it can take weeks to finish a puzzle, but it is so satisfying when I work out a match.  I'm not sure when the app was last updated - I'm just glad it still works after all these years. I searched for a similar game on Android and never found one.  #2022pad #ipad #sudokumonster16 #favgame #smallprint #magnify #magnifyingglass #latergram
09Feb22 A bit red and sweaty after a rowing session.  I spent six consecutive days rowing in order to complete this year's Concept 2 Valentine's Day Challenge.  And yes, I rowed more than 14,000 km and completed the challenge.  #2022pad #rowing #darkhorserowing #homegymlife #keepmoving #iamadarkhorse  #latergram #selfie #rowingselfie
11Sep22  Neurmal has a style all her own. She looks grumpy with a resting b*tch face, but is the sweetest cat I've ever known. She doesn't bite, she only scratches the side of my bed *!!) and her scratching posts.  She waits, ever so patiently in the mornings until I drag myself out of bed, and only THEN does she meow like a crazed hungry kitty waiting for her food.  She makes biscuits on the floor (kneads the floor with her paws) while meowing for her food so it can look like she stamping her feet impatiently. Which makes me laugh, and in the mornings - that's really amazing for me.  She has taken over as the only cat in this villiage and takes her patroling duties seriously.  Plus, she's my gym advisor and tells me when I'm slacking off.  #cf22 #style #catsofinstagram #catstyle #softkitty
11Sep22  I take a photo of these whenever I do a test because with catarachts I don't trust my eyes.  It's easier to see for sure if there's a bottom line from the camera.  Then I let them hang around so I know the date I last checked.  Anyone else do that? This is called a RAT test in Australia.  #2022pad #covidnegative #justchecking #covidrattest #rat
