Trying Not To Be A Slave To It!

Happiness: an agreeable sensation arising from contemplating the misery of another. - Ambrose Bierce.
Welcome to my Sunday Love πŸ’“
I goes downstairs to make a much needed Brew.
Hubby takes another covid-19 test....
Negative \o/
Breakfast time...
Nice big hug afterwards.
Dressed.
Time to put on the washing machine.
First coffee of the morning.
Younger son goes off on a motorbike ride with our friend Joe.
Now to tidy up the backgarden.
A pile was forming of stuff that can't be recycled to go down to the local tip.
Now to put something up in the back garden.
My late dad had one back in the 1970s.
Another coffee is needed, as I have a lot of plants to repot.
Younger son came back really happy with his ride on the big motorbike with Joe.
Now for the long 6 hours of gardening.....
Nearly got through 200 litres of compost.
My late dad once said,"Don't be a slave to the garden," Nearly getting there...dad :)
 I needed a sit down after all of that!
I had a hot shower once I came in.
A nice roast chicken tea was had by all.
Time to look in the weekend newspaper.
Jan Hammer  is a Czech-American musician, composer, and record producer. He first gained his most visible audience while playing keyboards with the Mahavishnu Orchestra during the early 1970s, as well as his film scores for television and film including "Miami Vice Theme" and "Crockett's Theme", from the 1980s television program Miami Vice. He has continued to work as both a musical performer and producer.  
He has composed and produced at least 14 original motion picture soundtracks, the music for 90 episodes of Miami Vice and 20 episodes of the television series Chancer
 His compositions have won him several Grammy Awards.
He is 74 years old 🎈 
Eddie Cochran  was an American rock and roll musician. Cochran's songs, such as "Twenty Flight Rock", "Summertime Blues", "C'mon Everybody", and "Somethin' Else", captured teenage frustration and desire in the mid-1950s and early 1960s. He experimented with multitrack recording, distortion techniques, and overdubbing even on his earliest singles. He played the guitar, piano, bass, and drums. His image as a sharply dressed and attractive young man with a rebellious attitude epitomized the stance of the 1950s rocker, and in death he achieved iconic status.
He died on this day in 1960 aged 21.
UK No.1 on this day in 1953:
Lita Roza - (How Much Is) That Doggie in the Window?
USA No.1 on this day in 2021:
Silk Sonic (Bruno Mars and Anderson.Paak) - Leave the Door Open
 Hubby was still coughing and decided to still sleep on the sofa. 
Back to that comfortable King Size Bed for me!
Bank Holiday Monday tomorrow \o/

"Exercise," replied one son.
"Do you live in the same house," he was asked.
"He is my brother,and we live in that house," Replied my son pointing to our house.
"Keep safe," the policeman replied and drove off.
