Icecream Tart

No one in our home likes sweets, or desserts. Son afraid of getting diabetic doesn’t want me making anything sweet. Sn and IB (grandsons), who come to stay with us every alternating weekend don’t  like them either, so that leaves only me. Last I baked were Cookies four months ago. Nobody ate them. The person who finished them off was myself. By the time I finished, even I was sick of them, and threw the last ones in the garbage. I don’t want to see one for a long time now.

IB likes new ideas for us to try in cooking, and baking. In making a new home we are still to acquire home essentials. One was buying a tart tin, and IB wanted to be present to choose one. We have bought it since, but now IB is never here to try the new recipe of filling the small tarts with icecream. 

We will try it at the next opportunity we have together, but I am quite sure I will be the only person eating them. The others will say no to them. That’s quite a daunting prospect to think about.

We often capture stranger in photos we take in public. Open your photo library, and stop at the first picture that features a person you don’t know. Now tell the story of that person.


Last year IB (my grandson) was taking a Judo Karate class. I was snapping pictures of IB, and inadvertently took a photo of a stranger. He was sitting ahead on my right, and his head and left shoulder is visible.

His name is John Fielding. John is a Software Engineer working from home. His wife Ann has a 9-5 job, so John has to bring his two sons Bret and Max to the Karate class.

The Karate class is for the duration of one hour. To save time on coming and going John stays in class. Most of the parents are doing the same thing. The Karate teachers have no objections to parents watching their kids.

John has brought his laptop to the class. He sits in the class, and does his work too. Outside it is 90 degrees, so it is better to stay in the class. When his sons are doing their moves, he watches them.

The class is over. He shuts down his laptop, and gets up. He can now take his sons home.

When he reaches his home, he is going to give the children milk and cookies. His wife will be home soon, and then John can retire to his den, leaving the kids safely to their mother.
