Making Most Of The Saturday Sunshine!

Why buy a book when you can join the library? - Lily Savage
Welcome to my Saturday 🖌
It's going to be warm today!
Breakfast with brew time.
We listened to the "Sounds of the 60's"
While we were getting ready...
UK Top 3 Singles of This Week in 1967.
Tom Jones - I'll Never Fall In Love Again
The Beatles - All You Need Is Love
Scott Mckenzie - San Francisco. 
Watered the plants.
Loaded up the car.
Off we go....
We check on my late Father-in-law's house.
Oh dear we have damage alert in the Dining Room!
Puts it all back.
Opens all the windows.
More work for me to do in the back garden!
Hubby makes 2 trips to the Household Waste Site to get rid of the old Fridge, Freezer and empty gas bottles.
I meanwhile repainting the kitchen/bathroom walls and windows.
Coffee time with a nibble time.
More painting to do.
The neighbour was having a good eyeful when I was on the step-ladder trying to paint the top of the Dining Room window.
The Step-ladder nearly tipped off when I tried to reach a bit higher than I should have.
The Plumber arrived to disconnect the applications in the kitchen.
I got down to have a yak with him.
All was disconnected and put outside.
Someone from the flats opposite wanted the Tumble Drier.
They took it away...
Then later on someone, took everything else away for free \o/.
The kitchen looks well empty now!
Time for another drink and nibble!
Found the instructions for the missing items that belonged in the kitchen↓↓
Finished painting the back door.
Coming back tomorrow to add the second coat on the walls and window frames and door.
It was getting well warm when we left.
I bet some neighbours are banging their gums at seeing the above left on the pavement!
Back home.
Nice cold drink is needed!
Tea time.
We caught up with four episodes of "Top of the Pops" from 1993.
Oh dear, that fast forward button was used a lot!
Next up was a great episode of "Blankety Blank" which was repeated last week.
(It was first shown in 1979)
Now to catch up with the Heardle:
Heardle 60s:
My son's answers were:
Quick look into today's newspaper:
UK No.1 on this day in 1964:

UK No.1 on this day in 1983:
KC and the Sunshine Band - Give It Up
US No.1 on this day in 1966:
The Lovin' Spoonful - Summer in the City 
Sleep Tea Time.
I stopped downstairs, as it was far too hot for me to sleep upstairs.
Up early tomorrow!

It's Christmas!

 I once bought my kids a set of batteries for Christmas with a note on it saying, toys not included. - Bernard Manning 
Christmas Day
Welcome along to my Christmas Day 🎄
There was no need to rush to get up.
Still had a warm hug.
Followed by a nice breakfast with brew.
Now to take down the presents...
After we opened all of our presents.
3 new editions along my Minions.
It was time to for coffee.
Hubby then went to collect his dad.
I got on with sorting out the Christmas Dinner.
One son went round to see if our neighbour wanted a Christmas Dinner.
He did and he will have.
Hour later, my Father-in Law arrived.
He opened his Christmas presents and had a nice cup of brew.
Once the Christmas Dinner was dished up,
A plate of it went next door.
We watched the Queen's Speech.
Then onto Sinbad.
I got on with writing yesterday's blog post.
Mince pie anyone? 
Once Sinbad was finished we moved onto:
Then onto....
Then we watched the undiscovered 1970 Christmas special.
A very light tea↓
Hubby then took his dad home.
Now out comes the alcohol free punch.
8 years of being a Tee-total.
Now for a bit of Dirty Harry...
Let's look inside the newspaper.
Maurice  Cole , better known as Kenny Everett, was an English comedian, radio disc jockey and television presenter. After spells on pirate radio and Radio Luxembourg in the mid-1960s, he was one of the first DJs to join BBC radio's newly-created BBC Radio 1 in 1967. It was here he developed his trademark voices and surreal characters which he later adapted for television. 
He would have been 77 years old 🎈
He sadly died aged 50 aged 1995.
Denver  Pyle  was an American film and television actor and director. He was well known for a number of TV roles from the 1960s through the 1980s, including his portrayal of Briscoe Darling Jr. in several episodes of The Andy Griffith Show, as Jesse Duke in The Dukes of Hazzard from 1979 to 1985, as Mad Jack in the NBC television series The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams, as well as the titular character's father, Buck Webb, in CBS's The Doris Day Show. In many of his roles, he portrayed either authority figures, or gruff, demanding father figures, often as comic relief.
He died on this day in 1997 aged 77.
"To Kill a Mockingbird", a film adaptation of the novel by Harper Lee, directed by Robert Mulligan and starring Gregory Peck, is released (Gregory Peck - Best Actor Academy Awards 1963)in 1962.
Hubby comes back.
Sleep Tea time.
Now to enjoy the rest of Xmas Day in bed 🛏
