Let the fun start!
It was tank time.
Some just scraped a bit of ice of their windscreen!
Then it gets better.
First a blue attempted to mount the pavement to go around me, then realised it was bin day and 3 bins covering the pavement.
Back on the road you go love!
Next bit of fun I had was:
I stopped a old woman in her car to cross a parent over, when I got back on the pavement, she drove up a bit and started having a go at me for something, jabbing her finger down and gums going.....
Pity she didn't wind the window down, I could hear about the problem I had caused!
I said nothing and carried on waiting for the next person to cross over!
Gave out three Boings as well.
Finished in one piece.

Parked around the corner.

Goes back to Sexy Beast to pick up my big stick.
One friend arrives, we go and look for more bargains in the Bakery Sale.
Back outside as three more friends arrived for a little rabbit!
The low lying sun is back again.
I said goodbye to all my friends.
Now to do the afternoon shift.
People were actually stopping my side of the road. No Boings were actually handed out for once!

Welcome back to the Friday Feeling🎈
Snoring was getting too loud for me to sleep, plus I was getting too hot upstairs.
