Time for a bit of guess the intro...

Hubby was going to do the food shopping with younger son who is doing our next door's neighbour's shopping.
Hubby is also dropping the other son off at work.

Next stop....
While I was paying for my things at the till.
A old friend of my late mum's said to me:
"You won't be wanting them in this heat Sandra?"

Another jumper goes on.
I start to write Thursday's blog while hubby does the tea.
We just have steak with salad.
Now to break into one of the DVDs we have bought..
Looks into today's newspaper:
Edwin Starr (born Charles Edwin Hatcher) was an American singer and songwriter. Starr was famous for his Norman Whitfield-produced Motown singles of the 1970s, most notably the number-one hit "War".
Starr was born in Nashville and raised in Ohio, and later lived in Detroit while singing for Ric-Tic and Motown Records. He was backed by the band that would become known as "Black Merda". Hawkins and Veasey of the group played on most of his early hits on the Ric Tic Label. Starr's songs "Twenty-Five Miles" and "Stop the War Now" were also major successes, in 1969 and 1971 respectively. In the 1970s Starr's base shifted to the United Kingdom, where he continued to produce music, and resided until his death.
He died on this day in 2003 aged 61.
