Tequilla Time!

I don't want to sound paranoid, but that electronic line judge knows who I am - John McEnroe.
Welcome to my Tuesday πŸ’«
Still tossing and turning during the night :(
Had a nice brew with Breakfast later on.
No wet sloppy one or warm hug for hubby just yet.
At least the sun is out!
Then went back to sleep for a bit.
The Spur of energy returned!
Dressed, and coffee machine went on.
Outside I go to breath in some fresh air!
Started up Sexy Beast.
Now to soak up those important sun's rays!
Better take another Covid Test before lunch.
Oh dear, won't be going back to work just yet!
Day 7 of having Covid!
Warmed up the last of the soup.
Yum!
Hubby finally got to send my letters to my Prison Pen Pals \o/

Then it is time to put the tea in the oven.
The food from the Magic Bag, hubby got on Monday was being eaten.

Now for a bit of Top of the Pops from 1992.

Going Round And Round!

Dancing with her was like moving a piano - Ring Lardner
 Welcome to my Tuesday 🍭
A warm hug to start the day!
Brew with Breakfast.
The tea tasted RANK, as the water filter was running out in the kettle...
YUK YUK YUK!πŸ’©
I will change the filter when I get back.
Thermal vest went on....
While hubby was getting dressed.
Time to reveal Sexy Beast.
That had been a early frost.
So no scraping for me!
I gave hubby a nice wet sloppy one.
 When I got to the car park, the entrance gate was locked, reversed Sexy Beast, and had to go through the no entrance gate instead.
Two winter hats and warm gloves went on.
Locked Sexy Beast, zipped up my coat, then dropped one of my gloves on the floor.
I'm not undoing my coat, let's play try to pick up glove with my big stick....
Done!
While waiting to put on my lights.
Someone asked: 
"If I cross the kids here?"
"No, further down the road,"I replied.
Once I put on my lights.
Now for the fun to start!
My big stick and me kept turning invisible!
Felt like the Invisible lady.....
One car braked hard on the otherside of the road, the car behind nearly smacked into the car in front!
Plenty of BOINGs were given out!
I don't feel wearing blue flashing lights and music will stop those car drivers who fail to stop!
Anyhow I finished one piece!
I had a chat with my friend with his dog for 10 minutes.
I went to the Petrol Station to get some fuel.
The Petrol filler cap kept going round and round.
Not coming off. I asked one of the staff in the petrol station to help. Still going round and round!
I left with getting fuel...
I will see if hubby has the magic know-how how to get it off!
Picks up the newspaper on the way home.
Puts on the Coffee Machine.
Tried to look on You Tube to see if there is a way to get the petrol cap undone....
Nope was the answer.
Time for a much needed coffee!
Then onto writing yesterday's blog post.
Once done.
I finished off the soup....
I will make some more later.
Now for round 2.
I saw my friend again and had another chat for 10 minutes.
It didn't half feel cold.
The two hats went on, as well as warm gloves.
I turned on my lights.
Now time for a rabbit with my two friends.
I said goodbye to my friends.
Now for Round 2.
It was cloudy, so no low lying sun to worry about. So there was no excuse not to stop!
Two cars overtook a man on a bike, coming up the road. The white BMW realised at the last minute there was a pedestrian refuge island in the middle of the road.
He then had to drop behind the man on the bike!
I had to give out the normal BOINGs!
Finished in one piece!
Home Time.
I put the soup maker back on .
Put our tea in the oven.
Made the salad for when the tea is ready to be served up.
Hubby came back and had a sloppy wet one.
He went out to look at my petrol cap.
Quick jiggle about, and it came off!
Magic hand saves the day!
 Now for tea.
Veggie Quiche with salad.
Now to watch another episode of:
Looked into today's newpaper.

(1959) and "Poor Me" (1960). He became the first UK artist to lodge his initial seven hits in the top 5, and was ultimately one of the most charted acts of the 1960s. He was also one of the first UK acts to record original songs regularly. Faith also maintained a successful acting career, notably appearing as Dave in the teen exploitation film Beat Girl (1960), the eponymous lead in the ITV television series Budgie and Frank Carver in the BBC comedy drama Love Hurts

Simon LeBon.
Welcome to my Saturday πŸ‘£
Nice warm hug.

Thermal vest goes on.
As well as some layers.
Now out of the house we go.
Parks car.
Now to look in the first Charity Shop.
There was nothing in there.
Picked up an Americano
(With blue milk)
Plus a cake to eat later on.
Moving on with the Road Trip.
Lots of bargains we got.
Nipped into Waitrose for some bits.
Then back out for a nibble!
On the way back, 
Hubby got his car cleaned...
All nice and clean now.
Back home to unpack all the lovely bargains.
More jigsaws for younger son to do.
Lunchtime.
We rewatched the Meatloaf programme again from last night.
Really good programme.
R.I.P Meat Loaf.
Now to put all the Minions together. 
I will have to make some trousers for the Hulk teddy.
Younger son already did one Jigsaw that we bought earlier.
I carried on writing two blog posts.
Hubby recovered from his migraine.
(Slept it off)
To do the tea.
Tea was finished.
Blogs were published.
Time to catch up with 2 episodes of Top of the Pops from 1992.
A good song was at number 11.
There would be a new number one for the next 8 weeks...↓
Marcella Detroit was sacked in 1993 from the band.
 While unsurprised at the final dissolution of the partnership, Detroit was distressed by the way it ended and how it was announced. Many years later, she would comment "I was never in it to steal anyone's glory away; I just did my job. I was asked by everybody to become part of it and then everybody wanted me out... I learned a lot about what it means to be an artist... To put two people as different as we were together – well, we were bound to have differences personality-wise. In the video for 'Stay', I was singing to this guy who was dying and she (Siobhan) was the Angel of Death. We used our personality differences to our advantage, but it was a little too real!"
Detroit and Fahey had not spoken to or seen each other for 25 years before eventually meeting and talking again in 2018.
They did some good songs together in 2019.
I looked into today's newspaper.
Bill Bixby  was an American actor, director, producer, and frequent game-show panelist. His career spanned more than three decades, including appearances on stage, in films, and on television series. He is known for his roles as Tim O'Hara in the CBS sitcom My Favorite Martian, Tom Corbett in the ABC sitcom The Courtship of Eddie's Father, stage illusionist Anthony Blake in the NBC crime drama series The Magician, and scientist Dr. David Banner in the CBS science-fiction drama series The Incredible Hulk.
He would have been 88 years old 🎈
He sadly died aged 59 in 1993.
Exactly a week after it aired in America, the first episode of Hill Street Blues received its UK premiere on this day in 1981.
Joan Armatrading releases
"Drop the Pilot" on this day in 1983.
On this date in 1984 "Relax" by Frankie Goes to Hollywood reaches number one in the UK singles chart, despite the BBC ban; it will spend a total of 42 weeks in the top 40.
"Owner of a Lonely Heart" by Yes was the #1 song on the Billboard charts today in 1984. It was the first of two 2 straight weeks on top.
