Braving The Snow!

I've several varieties of sex.The conventional position makes me claustrophobic, and the others give me a stiff neck or lockjaw -
Tallulah Bankhead
Welcome to my Saturday ❆
We listened to "Sounds of the 60s" in bed with a brew.
The UK Singles top three was from 1964. 
Thermal vest time.
The snow is coming down when we leave.
Drops one son off at work.
Now to carry on to Bromsgrove to have my Booster jab.
Steady 40 m.p.h speed.
Gets to the Covid Centre.
Goes in, gets the Booster.
Sits down for 15 minutes.
Then out I go to see Hubby.
Off to Lidl to do the week's foodshop.
Anyone want a coffee machine?
Big Telly time.
Octopuss anyone?
Another big telly at the till.
We got a bargain wok for £19.99 instead of £79.99.
We then went into Food Warehouse, then Home Bargains.
On the way home, we nipped into Morrisons and we had a cheeky Americano from Starbucks.
Back home.
Unloaded the shopping.
Getting very cold in here.
Draws the curtains, heating goes on.
Time for a warm lunch.
Plus a much needed cup of coffee with a nibble.
We watched a great progamme about Brian Clough.
Then we watched:
I Am A Killer on Netflix.
Time for tea.
We watched Queen at the BBC.
Freddy Mercury: The Final Act.
The story of the extraordinary final chapter of Freddie Mercury’s life and how, after his death from Aids, Queen staged one of the biggest concerts in history, the Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert at Wembley Stadium, to celebrate his life and challenge the prejudices around HIV/Aids.
The film hears from those who performed at the epic gig, including Gary Cherone (Extreme), Roger Daltrey (The Who), Joe Elliott (Def Leppard), Lisa Stansfield and Paul Young, as well as the concert’s promoter, Harvey Goldsmith.
For the first time, Freddie's story is told alongside the experiences of those who tested positive for HIV and lost loved ones during the same period. Medical practitioners, survivors and human rights campaigners, including Peter Tatchell, recount the intensity of living through the Aids pandemic and the moral panic it brought about.
Afterwards we caught up with the news.
Looked in today's newspaper.
Eddie Rabbitt was an American country music singer and songwriter. His career began as a songwriter in the late 1960s, springboarding to a recording career after composing hits such as "Kentucky Rain" for Elvis Presley in 1970 and "Pure Love" for Ronnie Milsap in 1974. Later in the 1970s, Rabbitt helped to develop the crossover-influenced sound of country music prevalent in the 1980s with such hits as "Suspicions", "I Love a Rainy Night" (a number-one hit single on the Billboard Hot 100), and "Every Which Way but Loose" (the theme from the film of the same title). His duets "Both to Each Other (Friends and Lovers)" with Juice Newton and "You and I" with Crystal Gayle later appeared on the soap operas Days of Our Lives and All My Children.

He sadly died aged 56 in 1998
