Spot The Squirrel!

"Hello, oh, great one."
"Are you talking to me or my ass?" - Artie and Larry Sanders.
Welcome to my Friday Feeling 🎈
We got up early to do the Heardles.
Heardle 60s:
My results:
Breakfast and Brew.
It might be getting warmer,
The Thermal vest is still going on.
Got ready to leave to do the final day of the week!
I give hubby a sloppy wet one πŸ’‹ before I left the house.
I had to avoid the normal way to work as there are two sets of traffic lights.
Tried to park in the car park, but the gates were locked.
I had to turn around in the car park opposite and someone had just dumped their mini and it was a bit of pig to get around it to leave the car park.
I parked around the corner.
Winter coat, winter hat and gloves went on.
I fetched my newspaper.
Swapped it for my big stick! 
Then I went to turn on my lights.
Now let's go to work...🍭
I hand out 4 BOINGs as car drivers were driving under my raised stick!
 Had two Highway lorries park opposite each other on double yellow lines, causing mayham!
I finished in one piece.
On the way back home, I was stuck behind a van doing 28 m.p.h in a 40 speed limit.
 When it was safe to overtake it, I did.
Back home finally!
Coffee machine put on.
So was the dish washer, followed by the washing machine!
I got down to writing yesterday's blog.
Afterwards, I looked outside, and who did I see outside?
I didn't have no soup.
I had a sandwich instead.
I actually had some post!
I went last March.
£16 to park, and the VIP was crap for how much I paid to stop in there!
Now to go do the last afternoon shift of the week.
The fun I had to try and get to work!
I was coming down the slip road, someone wouldn't move over to the other lane, so I just moved in front of it!
Then I got stuck behind a red Panda!
Doing 40 m.p.h in a 50 zone.
Then 30 in a 40 zone.
Then 20 in a 30 m.p.h.
I thought it might be going to where I am going.
It turned off just before I got to the car park \o/
Puts on the Winter coat, winter hat and winter gloves.
Goes and puts on my lights.
My friends arrive.
We were happily standing on the pavement, when two Stepfords driving their big cars were eyeing up the spot we were stood to park their cars on it. We made them a wait until I had five mins to get to my spot.
I wished my friends a good weekend.
Now to do the fun shift!
It's a pity my stick is 8 foot high, as I could reach those cars on the otherside of the road when they fail to stop!
I gave out 4 more BOINGs.
Finished in one piece.
Home time.
Brew time!
I got on writing yesterday's blog.
Someone wrote this on social media:
 Husband wonders why our sex life dried up. Dates back to the Xmas he bought some "toys" but was most exited about the hood that covered my whole head except my mouth. Made me realise he doesn't find me attractive at all. Binned it. Bought myself a vibrator.
My answer to it:
Someone commented:
Council phoned. They are strictly opposed to us holding a rainbow flag.  Political statement apparently. We don’t ‘DO’ political statements, we *ARE* a political statement.
Here was my response:
Send the council around to my garden. I have Rainbows everywhere:
I gave hubby a sloppy wet one πŸ’‹when he came home.
Dished up the tea.
I opened today's Fortune Cookie:
 Now to look into today's newspaper:
UK No.1 on this day in 1979:
Blondie -  Heart of Glass
US No.1 on this day in 1968;
The Lemon Pipers - Green Tambourine
We caught up with this week's Apprentice.
Sorted out the washing that I have been done for the past two days!
Sleep Tea Time.
Now to enjoy some Friday Feeling under the covers.....😁

Thermal vest goes on.
Freezing outside.

Then it's off to the car boot!
Got two whiskey barrels...
Now to have a look around...
The man was there from last week, selling white fake roses. I told him what happened to my parent's grave last Tuesday.
I got all the flowers for £3.
I also got another sewing box and musical box.
We walked around twice.
Now back home we go.
Unpacked the car.
Then off to the garden centre to get some compost.
I gets a few plants with the compost.
Gets back to the car, and with the plants,compost and younger son.
No room in the car for me!
While they go back to the house to unpack the car, I go back in for a coffee.
Feel like Billy No Mates↓
Hubby and younger son came back.
Time for a late lunch...
Son's lunch↑
That was so lovely.
Once finished, off to the car we go.
Back home.
Now to do some gardening.
We tried to drill holes into the Whiskey barrels.
No luck!
Hubby went out and got another powerful drill.
Five holes drilled in two barrels now.
Potted some herbs.
Potted some flowers.
It was starting to get cold...
Will finish off tomorrow...
Windows and curtains closed.
It's getting cold!
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.
