Driving In Some Nice Cars!

It's fast, my Cortina.You could drive 50 miles for a bag of chips in this car and they would still be warm when you got home.
 - Rigsby, Rising Damp
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
As far as Heardle 60s is concerned.
Never heard of it.
(Plus forgot to take a pic of my son's answers)
Time for brew and breakfast.
Dressed.
Puts the coffee machine on.
Now to water some plants in the garden.
Then the heavens open!
At least this was right!
Time for a coffee until it stops raining!
We put some bottles of water in the ice bag.
Now off for a Classic Car Experience.
Lots of nice cars to drive.
Bottle of wine anyone?
The Black MG is the one we drive first.
The gears are really close together.
We get to the first stop in one piece...
Nice drive in it↓
There were loads of classic cars there too.
There were Reindeers too.
Another classic car.
Nice views!
Which car are we going to drive now?
BMW time
 Out of the four couples, I turned right at the Crossroads, and everyone else kept going!
It was nice to have the roof down!
Gets to the next stop!
Coffee time!
Now for the final ride in a classic car.
There was traffic lights on the way home.
We drove to Evesham, through Hanbury, then to Bromsgrove.
We had to turn right into the yard.
The other Jag arrived back the same time as us.
We dropped the car back. 
Back home!
I did a quick pasta tea.
Hubby went off to a lads night watching WWE wrestling.
I had loads of tidying up to do!
Didn't get the newspaper today either.
However here are the No.1's from yesteryear.
UK No.1 on this day in 1961:
Eden Kane - Well I Ask You.
US No.1 on this day in 1985:
Tears For Fears - Shout!
Sleep Tea time.
I was just heading to bed when hubby came back.
Now to make the most of Hump day!🐫

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.

Woodward starred as Police Sergeant Neil Howie in the 1973 cult British horror film The Wicker Man, and in the title role of the 1980 Australian biopic Breaker Morant. From 1985 to 1989, Woodward starred as ex-secret agent and vigilante Robert McCall in the American television series The Equalizer, earning him the 1986 Golden Globe Award for Best Television Drama Actor.
He died on this day aged 79 in 2009
Our new toy has arrived!
Hubby was on it like a Spider...
I told him to be careful, as tomorrow he will be very stiff!
(I have a warm hand to sort out stiffness!)
My go on it tomorrow.
Sleep Tea time.
Looking at the weather for tomorrow...
It's going to be a sunny Hump 🐫
