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?

10Feb22  My gym advisor works really hard at keeping me moving.  Especially this week while I worked on meeting the Valentine's Day Challenge.  I like how the mirror shows me on the rower with my walking stick beside me (necessary so I can stand up when I finish my workout). #2022pad #rowing #darkhorserowing #homegymlife #keepmoving #iamadarkhorse  #catsofinstagram #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
18Jan22  Oh ick.  I am NOT showing you what the porch light looked like.  Cleaning the porch and porch light were not my job and wasn't something I even thought about over the last 3yrs.  Until it started looking like this.  The blackness is from the dust and dirt across the road (where there's a large horse paddock). When the wind comes from that direction, even with the windows closed I get a film of dust and dirt over everything.  And obviously cobwebs are not immune from it.  So I took a couple cleaning brushes with extensions on them and tackled this area as well as the porch light.  Rod used to bring the globe around the light into the house and wash it. I can't do that. I'm not safe on ladders.  So I'll just get it to be less scary looking and call it good.  Before I tackled this job, the area was sprayed with my favourite spider killer.  Were spiders hurt? Geez, I hope so. And I hope they stay away for a long time.  #dirt #cobwebs #porchcleaning #eww #spiders #latergram
06Sep22  It was a beautiful and warm afternoon.  I had an appointment not far from the beach so I decided to have a long walk on the esplanade.  I took this near the end of my walk - you can tell by the little bit of of pink on my nose.  My earrings decided to be a bit wonky but the rest of me looks pretty darn good for an almost 61yr old!  #2022pad  #beachwalk #beach #christiesbeach #cf22 #wonky
A little 44 seconds of the beach.  Enjoy.
