Auditioning To Be A Pirate!

I like to be a free spirit.Some don't like that. But that's the way I am - Princess Diana
 
After the shopping trip, my left knee blew up like a football.Making it impossible to walk.
All night was left leg was up......↗↗↗
Brew and hug.
Breakfast. 
Dressed.
Hubby had to drive the Sexy Beast.
We dropped off son at his Boxing lesson.
Checked Sexy Beast's tyres.
Back home to swap cars over.
Checked hubby's tyres next.
Off to Chemist to try to get down the swelling and ease the pain.
Coffee with a dash of pain relief.
Picks up son from his Boxing lesson..
Back home to put leg up....↗↗↗
Had some light lunch.
Washing machine went on,

The tumble drier.
It was looking like a Chinese Laundry here.

The pain might be helped with the gel, but I'm having trouble walking....
Feel like an extra in a pirate film.

I fast forwarded the rest as I couldn't stand the rest of the songs being played.
Quick look at the Birthdays.
Chuck Berry was an American singer and songwriter, and one of the pioneers of rock and roll music. Nicknamed the "Father of Rock and Roll", Berry refined and developed rhythm and blues into the major elements that made rock and roll distinctive with songs such as "Maybellene" (1955), "Roll Over Beethoven" (1956), "Rock and Roll Music" (1957) and "Johnny B. Goode" (1958). Writing lyrics that focused on teen life and consumerism, and developing a music style that included guitar solos and showmanship, Berry was a major influence on subsequent rock music.He would have been 94 years old 🎈
He died aged 90 in 2017. 
Curtis Stigers  is an American jazz singer. He achieved a number of hits in the early 1990s, most notably the international hit "I Wonder Why" (1991), which reached No. 5 in the UK and No. 9 in the US.He is 55 years old 🎈 
 
Alfredo Lettieri  was an Italian-American actor and screenwriter. During his career, he acted with some of Hollywood's biggest screen stars, including Steve McQueen in The Getaway, Charles Bronson in Mr. Majestyk, John Wayne in McQ, Richard Harris in The Deadly Trackers, Michael Caine and Mickey Rooney in Pulp, and Marlon Brando and Al Pacino in The Godfather. In most of those roles, he was cast as a villain and was sometimes credited as Anthony Lettieri.
He died on this day in 1975 aged 47 years old.

Julie London  was an American singer and actress whose career spanned more than 40 years. Born in Santa Rosa, California to vaudevillian parents, London was discovered while working as an elevator operator in downtown Los Angeles, and began her career as an actress. London's 35-year acting career began in film in 1944, and included roles as the female lead in numerous westerns, co-starring with Rock Hudson in The Fat Man (1951), with Robert Taylor and John Cassavetes in Saddle the Wind (1958), and opposite Robert Mitchum in The Wonderful Country (1959). 
She died on this day in 2000 aged 74 years old.
