With thanks to the lovely people at Rydges Eagle Hawk (where I was yesterday with work), we welcome Glenn the kangaroo to the Samuel Household.
I can hear some people asking why I named him Glenn, well my reasoning is that “Rydges” is written on his front, and I instantly made the connection between that and Glenn Ridge, former host of television’s “Sale Of The Century”, and so decided to name the kangaroo after Glenn Ridge.
Glenn the kangaroo now happily resides in my household, on one of the many cabinets, which he shares with many other animal figurines of similar size.
As a side note, I must say that Rydges Eagle Hawk have a very professional, courteous and cheerful staff, they are also extremely good at making coffee, and their quiche is brilliant, it’s light, fluffy and delicious. The people at Rydges Eagle Hawk deserve accolades for their fantastic effort, I personally made a special effort to thank them for their brilliant food, drink and service by informing one of the staff of my thoughts.
Glenn the kangaroo will always serve as a reminder of the brilliance of Rydges Eagle Hawk and will naturally be a valued member of the Samuel household.
