Passions of a 50 year old man – Number 3

29 05 2009

Apart from playing a Saturday morning round of golf and then coming home to slippers and a nanna rug to listen to the ABC, there is one other passion of mine that I feel would be better suited to a man more advanced in years.

I love to do the Sydney Morning Herald Cryptic Crossword.

The only other people I know who love this are:

  • My Dad (>60 years)
  • My Uncle (>50 years)
  • My late Grandfather

It’s especially good on a Friday when a guy called David Astle puts them together. He has a particularly cryptic mind and his crosswords are renowned as the toughest.

Does anyone else (preferably under 50) share this passion? Or am I 5-across, 9 letters, G-E-R-I-A-T-R-I-C?
