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:
Over Kill.
In 1996, David Barnett murdered his adoptive grandparents, stabbing them over 20 times. Later, he revealed years of abuse at the hands of his father.
An Ordinary Boy 
 Remorseful about the crime that sent him to prison for life, Leo Little tells the story of the murder he committed in 1998. He is now a minister.
Trapped.
 From a women's reformatory in Ohio, Linda Lee Couch talks about the murder of her husband, Walter, in 1984, a killing precipitated by years of abuse.
 Honorable Intentions.
Mark Arthur maintains that he murdered a friend's father on a Houston highway for savagely beating his wife. But police have a different theory.
Pyro Joe 
 After 24 years on death row, Joseph Murphy saw his sentence commuted a week before his execution due to the extreme abuse he suffered as a child. 
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 🎈
 
Disaster film "The Towering Inferno" is released, starring Steve McQueen and Paul Newman in 1974.
"Philadelphia" one of the first mainstream films about AIDS, directed by Jonathan Demme, starring Tom Hanks and Denzel Washington premieres in Century City, California in 1993.
Sleep Tea Time.
Hopefully there will be a warmer Hump of the Week tomorrow 🐫

Gaining A New Toy To Play With!

 Never do anything in bed that you can't pronounce - Mitch Murray
Welcome to my Tuesday 🚛
Nice hug with brew.
Breakfast.
Hubby has calmed down now after the fun with his cue last night!
Thermal vest time.
Dressed.
Gives hubby a wet 😘 before I leave.
Parked back in my normal space.
It was quite warm, so no gloves needed.
I puts on my lights.
Now let's roll...🍭
Karma can happen so quicky...
One grey 13 plate Skoda, failed to stop and gave me the look of hate when she went past.
Only but 5 minutes later, she came back on my side of the road, and I stopped her.
Ooooo the look she gave me when she went past..
Having trouble all of my morning shift of cars not stopping at all.
The real danger was near to end of my shift.
I am stood in the middle of the road, holding my stick, a 40 tonne lorry comes up the road, and drives past me, any more in the road, it would have been bye bye to me!
Nearly been sideswiped by a lorry, doesn't happen too many times, thank god!
(That's why I won't let no cross until everyone has stopped)
I did mouth to lorry driver as he went past me.
(You are supposed to stop!)
I finished in one piece!
I picks up my newspaper on the way home.
Coffee machine goes on.
Loads up dishwasher,
On that goes as well as the Tumble Drier.
Now for a bit of spin!
Watched 25 minutes of "Ronin".
Cooled down.
Now for some much needed coffee!
I wrote and published yesterday's blog post.
Lunchtime. 
Now out for part 2.
Some nice big tunes to sing along with on the way..
Still too warm for gloves \o/
Turns on my lights.
Now for a good rabbit with friends.
Said goodbye to my friends.
Now for part 2.
One van on the otherside of the road, had no intention of stopping, good job my stick is so tall!
Finished in one piece.
Hometime.
More good music to singalong with:
On the way home, oh dear one blue car was in a rush, didn't stop at the island as I was coming round. He was stuck behind a council van and a low speeding lorry.
(He didn't like that)
He undertook the council van at the following island, then overtook the lorry.
Then off he went at 70mph+ in a 40 zone!
I was glad to get home after watching that! 
Once I chopped up everything I needed for tea and put in the oven.
Time for a brew!
Hubby came back and had another sloppy wet 💋
Dished up the grub.
Time for a bit of music to get us in the mood for next month!
My favourite out of the above 3 has to be...↓
Hubby went out and got our new toy for us of us to play with....
I  looked into today's newspaper.
