The Future's Looking Bright!

My wife came home and said she had some good news and some bad news about the car, "What's the good news?"
She said, "The airbag works." - Roy Chubby Brown 
 Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐪
Nice warm hug to start Hump Day with.
The brew tasted a lot better now the filter has been changed!
Brew with breakfast.
Thermal vest goes on.
Now to leave the house.
Big big sunglasses goes on.
Gives hubby a sloppy wet one before I leave.
Nice sunny hump day so far.
Two hats and gloves goes on.
I turn on my lights.
Now for some fun...🍭
I am getting bigger vans not stopping.
One man in his black van just looked at me, as I raised my stick, and he drove straight it.
BOING BOING went my big stick.
One braked sharply on the otherside.
The traffic lights in the road opposite where I turn on my lights is causing the backlog of traffic.I survived just!
I went into the Co-op to get a few things.
The Tarot magazine is £6.99!
Someone is having a laugh with the reduced food I see↑↑↑
It seems no one like Parsnips. I bought 2 bags for reduced parsnips for 38p each.
Got my shopping.
Now to get a bit of fuel for Sexy Beast, now hubby has got the petrol cap off! 
I went past Morrisons and they have turned off their prices of their fuel.
Put a bit in, hope it last a bit longer....
Gets the newspaper and my neighbour's magazine on the way home.
Coffee maker goes on.
Unpacks the shopping.
Now time for coffee.
Now to get yesterday's blog post wrote.
I ran out of time to finish it.
Warmth up the soup from yesterday.
I added salad onions to it and more chilli flakes.
I didn't like it.
Just about finished it off.
Cup of coffee to wash it down!
Note to self:
Not to add Carrots to the next one.
I had my new Tarot cards arrive.
When I looked up at the meanings of each card.
It might as well be in Chinese, as didn't under them! 
Now off for round 2:
I got chatting with the Caretaker.
He was locking the entrance gate, stop parents of the schools parking in the car park.
Both friends appeared when I was about to turn on my lights.
We all went for a walk and then I turned on my lights.
Now it's time for a little rabbit.
The time went to quick having a rabbit!
I said goodbye to my friends.
Now to for round 2!
Plenty of BOINGs were given out.
No chance of cars stopping at all.
Oh well, at least I have survived to tell the tale once more!
Home time.
Fried the burgers and cooked them in the oven.
(I am having a chicken salad instead)
The Soup maker came back out.
I made Parsnip with Sweet Potato soup.
Hubby came home and had a nice sloppy wet one.
They had Cheese Burgers.
I had a chicken salad.
Now to watch Netflix.
I remember a series call "Black Box" that was shown on Channel 4 in the 1990s.
If you get chance to see it, it's brilliant.
Now to look in today's newspaper.
Lloyd Price  was an American R&B and swing singer-songwriter, record executive and bandleader, known as "Mr. Personality", after his 1959 million-selling hit, "Personality". His first recording, "Lawdy Miss Clawdy", was a hit for Specialty Records in 1952. He continued to release records, but none were as popular until several years later, when he refined the New Orleans beat and achieved a series of national hits. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998.
He would have been 89 years old 🎈
He sadly died aged 88 in 2021.

Taking It Easy!

Some mornings, it's just not worth chewing through the leather straps - Emo Philips 
 Welcome to my Saturday 👍
It was nice to have an extra few hours in bed than a normal weekday!
Loads of hugs and sloppy wet 💋💋💋💋

Potted more plants in the garden that came in the post today and yesterday.

Now to catch up with blog.
While I was writing the two blog entries...
We caught up with some television from this week.
First was the Alex Higgins story from last Sunday.
Next up was 
Have I Got News For You.
One joke that made us laugh was about Angela Rayner having more shadows than Cliff Richard reunion with the Shadows!
Finished blogging.
Now to read two weeks of newspapers.
One death that I didn't know about was Lloyd Price on the 3rd May aged 88

Really good film!
We didn't have the DVD of the second film....
