Say you're sorry. No one says you have to mean it - Jeff Green
Welcome to my Saturday Fun 🌹
A lovely hug is what was ordered!
Brew with Breakfast.
Now to get dressed.
(No thermal vest needed)
Out we go...
First stop was....
We got a self-service scanner.
However the price of the binders was £2.50 on the scanner, funny it was £1.50 on the shelf.
One man Sale Assistant in a suit says, it will correct itself at the till....
Yeah right!
Goes to the till, and we were charged £2.50!
Then the voucher for the i got stuck in the coupon slot.
On goes the red light...
That was sorted.
After paying for the things,
I went to the customer service desk,
And got a £3 refund!
Now off to see my mum and dad.
I gave them the some new flowers.
Had a catch up with what had been happening for the past week!
Then off for a coffee....
It was nice to sit outside...
Then the wind got up and it was freezing cold...
Back inside we go...
Afterwards we go and look around the reduced plant stand.
We goes inside to pay for them, when suddenly on the sound system comes:
We walked back outside until it finished.
The Sales Assistant on the till says:
"Music effects people in different ways"
Back home with the flowers!
As we got some nice wind...
Out comes the lollipop coats to dry on the line.
The man on the fence was being kept busy in the wind...

Wished them luck and not to come back with the wooden spoon!

The Hall is giving out the Covid vaccine jobs again today. I got a parking space.
Nice start to the day🌞
I took a picture of the tree while I was waiting to turn on my lights..
There was a lot of traffic for a Friday.
One BMW was going to stop for me, then at the last minute, she put her foot down and carried on!
I finished in one piece.
I got home to get ready to get to the other job.
But must not forget to have coffee!

Filled up with fuel on the way home.
I had a lovely salad for lunch.
Then back out for the final shift of lollipop 🍭
Summer coat went back on.
Nice to sit on the bench to get some Vitamin D.
I starts. There is a lot of traffic, and some don't want to stop either though they are not going anywhere!
Once finished, 
I gets home.

Not to warm but just right temperature.
Puts on oven for the tea.

Roy  Orbison was an American singer, songwriter, and musician known for his impassioned singing style, complex song structures, and dark, emotional ballads. His music was described by critics as operatic, earning him the nicknames "the Caruso of Rock" and "the Big O". Many of Orbison's songs conveyed vulnerability at a time when most male rock-and-roll performers chose to project defiant masculinity. He was known for his shyness and stage fright, which he countered by wearing dark sunglasses.
He would have been 85 years old 🎈
He sadly died aged 52 in 1988.
Lee Majors (born Harvey Lee Yeary) is an American actor. Majors portrayed the characters of Heath Barkley in the American television Western series The Big Valley (1965–1969), Colonel Steve Austin in the American television science fiction action series The Six Million Dollar Man (1973–1978), and Colt Seavers in American television action series The Fall Guy (1981–1986).
