1 EAGLETON NOTES: First Defeat

First Defeat

When we have our morning or afternoon coffee CJ and I do a crossword: usually the Times 2 straightforward general knowledge crossword. It is exceptionally rare for us to be defeated ie for us not to finish the crossword by the time we have drunk our coffee. Although occasionally we do have to drink fairly slowly! However a day or so ago we suffered our first defeat of the season. The silly thing was that, although we had forgotten that a circular painting in relief was called a tondo, it was quite unforgivable not to have remembered Hobbes. Oh dear. Age cometh not alone!

  1. I find it wonderful that you share special moments like this as brothers. Words are a wonderful tie. I am going to blog about this, too. Soon.
