Having Plenty!

Good news rarely comes in a brown envelope - Henry Goldsmid
Welcome to my Thursday 😎
Heardle Time.
Heardle 60s:
My results:
Breakfast with Brew.
Now out for some fresh air!
Gave hubby a sloppy wet one 💋
I had to go around the long way to work.
On goes the Winter Hat with winter hat.
Goes and gets the newspapers.
Now to turn on my lights.
The Christmas lights are back!
The gold one is situated above my lights↓
The Christmas Lights turn on is on the 25th November!
Before I turned on my lights,
The traffic was nearly backing up to where I was stood↓
Lights got turned on.
I walked down to my spot.
I stopped a Silver Jaguar, walked over the kids.
I am stood in the middle of the road, and I just signal with my hand for the school girl to cross over and suddenly the Jaguar moved forward nearly taking my arm off.
"What are you doing?" I shouted.
She slammed on the brakes and rolled down her window and said,"I thought you were letting me go!"
"No, I was signalling to the school girl that it was alright to cross over!"
The school girl had to go around the large bonnet of the car to cross the road, then I had to go around it to get back on the pavement.
I told a passerby about this.
"There are no winners in this,"he said.
"Yes, there is, my arm!"
Still had people stopping in the KEEP CLEAR space.
Plenty of BOINGs given out to those cars on the otherside of the road not stopping!
Finished in one piece, JUST!
Back home.
Hubby got is black suit and black tie.
As he was going off to his Aunt's funeral.
I gave him a sloppy wet one 💋 before he left.
On goes the coffee machine.
Loads up the dishwasher.
Coffee time!
I start on yesterday's blog post.
Meanwhile at my Hubby Aunt's Funeral.
Then at the Wake afterwards↓
After an hour, hubby had to go back to work.
I meanwhile, had a liquid lunch.
Now to do part two.
Long way round to work again.
Puts on my Winter coat and hat.
Puts on my lights.
I chat to my friend gives his dog some fuss.
One of my friends who I rabbit with in the afternoon, arrived.
One friend said to me,"Are you going for coffee again?"
I replied,"Only if my friend is paying!"
My friend said,"Yes!"
I said, "Goodbye," to my friend with the dog.
I got my big stick out of Sexy Beast.
Now off for coffee and nibble.
I put my big stick up against the wall by the table I was sitting by.
Then someone sat near me, so I moved by stick again. It didn't take long before someone knocked and nearly wrecked the place!
I need a coffee after that!
Altogether it cost my friend for a coffee, pot of tea and 2 cakes - £11.20
Next time we are going to have the £1 cake!
We had a good rabbit.
Our other friend didn't arrive.
Once finished we went outside.
I said "Thank you for coffee and nibble, and see you tomorrow!"
Soon as I starts, an old friend appears and I have to sort out her lovelife.
For once the traffic was stopping for me.
One parent shouted at me from his car:
"How's the love life going?"
I shouted back, "Having Plenty!"
One parent, commented:
"When you are off, I will bring my own lollipop stick and do your job!"
I replied,"After 10 minutes, you will hand that lollipop stick back to me!"
Once I finished and unzipped my coat.
My friend who bought me coffee and appeared.
I introduced him to my friend.
"Becareful," I said to him, "She is a Maneater, and have you for breakfast, and there will be nothing left for dessert!"
"If I get up to anything like that, I will keel over!"laughed my friend.
They both laughed.
I said "Goodbye" to both and went off back to my Sexy Beast.
Back home.
Cup of brew is needed!
Finished writing yesterday's blog post.
Hubby came back with a take away.
He had a sloppy wet one 😘 from me.

The Anger Monkey is Back!

He has love bites on his mirror - Kathy Lette
Welcome to my Tuesday 💥
I got up soon as the alarm went off to have a nice hot shower.
The thermal vest went on.
I had a warm hug before breakfast and brew.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet 😘 before I left the house.
I still wore 2 hats and only one glove.
I put on my lights.
Now to walk down to my spot.
I had a chat with one of the mums I cross over before I started.
She told me her dad died yesterday, she was hoping to see him this weekend. I told her I was sorry to hear that.
I stuck my stick out to cross her over the road, when a truck failed to stop and my stick nearly tapped the top of his truck!
I chattered to someone else while waiting for someone to cross over.
I told him to sad news of a lovely postman
(who whenever I bumped to, alway a good chat with) that passed away at the weekend :(
He told me some sad news as well.
One man who lives in his road, is too ill to have a operation, one of his friend's husband had a mini stroke, and another friend he works with has throat cancer.
I stopped Mr Speedy for a second time this week.
As it was getting light, I noticed something over the road, on top of the roof of the old Youth Club.
A Bike with no saddle!
I finished in one piece.
I collected my newspaper, and went to collect my DPD parcel.
As normal the DPD driver doesn't want to deliver to my house. So I rerouted it to Hughes.
Got back home.
Coffee machine went on.
As did the washing machine and tumble drier.
I wrote yesterday's blog post.
I tried again to get my son's second jab booked in on the NHS website.
I got him booked in for next week.
Woo hoo :) 
I waiting on the picture frame for my son's completed jigsaw.
It arrived, I passed his the parcel.
Then it all kicked off!
The picture frame was a bit too small for the jigsaw puzzle.
Lots of banging about.
Son came downstairs, trying to find a plaster as he cut his finger trying to fit the jigsaw to the picture frame!
All the things out of the First Aid cupboard was all the over the kitchen!
More banging about, then the front door went bang and off to school he went without a kiss or a goodbye.
My other son came back from school five minutes later, and he tried to shout to his brother, but his brother ignored him and stomped off to school.
I went upstairs to find the jigsaw puzzle.
Picture Frame but no jigsaw.
Just about sums it up↑↑↑↑
Finished the blog post.
Now for lunch.
Now what's behind the Advent Calender Door?
Now for round 2...
I only wore winter hat and one glove.
I walked to put on my lights.
Then I met up with my two friends for a good rabbit....
Oh dear, the low lying sun is back!
I said goodbye to my friends.
Now for the fun to start with the sun.
I had a group of parents and children to cross over when a car just went straight under my stick.
Then my stick went "BOING"
Pretended to hit the car roof.
Everyone found that funny.
Later on a RED BMW was speeding well fast up the road, when my stick came out and lowered it.
He had to brake really fast or I would have tap and cracked his windscreen!
Soon  after that, it was Hometime for me.
Glad I got finished in time with those dark clouds coming over!
Time for a brew.
 Son had calmed down when he got back.
He had put the jigsaw back in the box and attempting another one this weekend↓↓
He has his second Covid-19  jab on Saturday afternoon.
Peeled the spuds for tonight's tea.
Had a good yak with my friend.
Stuffing went in, gravy made, vegetables put on.
Hubby came home for a sloppy wet 💋.
Dished up tea.
Then carried on watching series 2 of:

Quick look in the newspaper.
Charlie Rich was an American country music singer, songwriter, and musician. His eclectic style of music was often difficult to classify, encompassing the rockabilly, jazz, blues, country, soul, and gospel genres. In the later part of his life, Rich acquired the nickname the Silver Fox. He is perhaps best remembered for a pair of 1973 hits, "Behind Closed Doors" and "The Most Beautiful Girl," which topped the U.S. country singles charts, as well as the Billboard Hot 100 pop singles charts and earned
him two Grammy Awards. Rich was inducted into the Memphis Music Hall of Fame in 2015
He would have been 89 years old 🎈
He sadly died aged 62 in 1995. 
Frank Allen (born Francis McNeice,in Hayes, Middlesex, England) is an English bass guitarist who was a long-time member of The Searchers.
 Frank Allen played bass guitar with Cliff Bennett and the Rebel Rousers and The Searchers (since 1964 when he replaced original bass guitarist Tony Jackson), and remained with them until they played their final gig in 2019. Allen joined Cliff Bennett and the Rebel Rousers as rhythm guitarist in 1961, and changed over to bass guitar in early 1962, following the departure of Ben Jordan.
When Tony Jackson left the Searchers in August 1964 after a string of hits (including "Sweets for My Sweet", "Sugar and Spice" and "Needles and Pins"), Allen was asked to join the group. They then recorded "When You Walk in the Room", with Mike Pender and Frank Allen singing a dual lead line.
Allen wrote a book of touring recollections called Travelling Man in 1999. His definitive and detailed biography of the Searchers entitled The Searchers And Me - A History of the Legendary Sixties Hitmakers was published in April 2009.
The Searchers retired the band in March 2019.
He is 78 years old 🎈
