What Did You Call Me?

 Ducking for apples. Change one letter and it's the story of my life - Dorothy Parker
Welcome to the Friday Feeling 🎈
The sun is out.
Heardle Time!
Heardle 60s:
My son's answers:
Time for breakfast and brew.
Now to leave the house.
Dropped off son at work.
Now to visit the Doctors.
I was in there for under 5 minutes.
The Doctor gave me some tablets.
I have to wait for the letter from the hospital.....
Afterwards goes and sees our son at work.
Gets some nice things and enjoyed a coffee.
Then off to Droitwich.
To drop off 5 boxes of books for the Droitwich Lions book Sale.
Good Deed #1 
We decided to visit Bromsgrove and have a look around the Charity Shops.
We parked up.
Looked in one Charity Shop.
The man in charge had changed the CD in the Charity Shop.
The Shadows came on,
My air guitar came out too:
He tried to catch me out with the next song....
"Jimmy Jones & Good Timin' "I said after a few notes came on!
Next Charity Shop, it all kicked off.
But first, I found a good LP↓
I walked to the back of the shop.
An old man on a disability scooter was trying to reverse.
I went, "Bip, Bip,Bip."
"If you think you are being funny, your're not!"He shouted at me.
"Only trying to help!" I shouted back.
"Cheeky Bitch,"He shouted at me in front of everyone.
My husband, said to him,"I beg your pardon!" 
Everyone in the shop stopped and wondered who he was calling that!
I pipped up and said, "Me!"
"No Friday Feeling off him," I said.
Lots of looks at him as he left.
I said to everyone when I left the shop,
"If I ever get that bad, pass me the gun or the pillow!"
Everyone laughed!
On to the next Charity Shop.
Great single I found.
(I already got this one)
Time to go home with the little bargains we got.
Back home.
Light lunch.
The bread tasted yuk!
On the bird table it went.
One bargain went up in the window.
I learnt that Michael Redfern had passed away.
He appeared in the OXO adverts for 16 years.
Here are few of them↓
Tea was put in the oven for later.
Helps write the shopping list out for tomorrow.
Tea is served.
Afterwards a quick look in the newspaper.

Got the shopping trolley ready for tomorrow's trip to Droitwich.

Driving In Some Nice Cars!

It's fast, my Cortina.You could drive 50 miles for a bag of chips in this car and they would still be warm when you got home.

Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
As far as Heardle 60s is concerned.
Never heard of it.
(Plus forgot to take a pic of my son's answers)
