Oh Yeah, I Got Four More!

I'm not a snob.Ask anybody.Well, anybody who matters -
Simon LeBon.
Welcome to my Saturday 👣
Nice warm hug.
Brew with breakfast.
We listened to "Sounds of the 60's" 
UK Top 3 from 1960. 
3: Michael Holiday - Starry Eyes↓
2: Anthony Newley - Why↓
1: Emile Ford & The Checkmates -
What Do You Want To Make Those Eyes At Me For?↓
Thermal vest goes on.
As well as some layers.
Now out of the house we go.
Parks car.
Now to look in the first Charity Shop.
There was nothing in there.
Picked up an Americano
(With blue milk)
Plus a cake to eat later on.
Moving on with the Road Trip.
Lots of bargains we got.
Nipped into Waitrose for some bits.
Then back out for a nibble!
On the way back, 
Hubby got his car cleaned...
All nice and clean now.
Back home to unpack all the lovely bargains.
More jigsaws for younger son to do.
We rewatched the Meatloaf programme again from last night.
Really good programme.
R.I.P Meat Loaf.
Now to put all the Minions together. 
I will have to make some trousers for the Hulk teddy.
Younger son already did one Jigsaw that we bought earlier.
I carried on writing two blog posts.
Hubby recovered from his migraine.
(Slept it off)
To do the tea.
Tea was finished.
Blogs were published.
Time to catch up with 2 episodes of Top of the Pops from 1992.
A good song was at number 11.
There would be a new number one for the next 8 weeks...↓
Marcella Detroit was sacked in 1993 from the band.
 While unsurprised at the final dissolution of the partnership, Detroit was distressed by the way it ended and how it was announced. Many years later, she would comment "I was never in it to steal anyone's glory away; I just did my job. I was asked by everybody to become part of it and then everybody wanted me out... I learned a lot about what it means to be an artist... To put two people as different as we were together – well, we were bound to have differences personality-wise. In the video for 'Stay', I was singing to this guy who was dying and she (Siobhan) was the Angel of Death. We used our personality differences to our advantage, but it was a little too real!"
Detroit and Fahey had not spoken to or seen each other for 25 years before eventually meeting and talking again in 2018.
They did some good songs together in 2019.
I looked into today's newspaper.
Bill Bixby  was an American actor, director, producer, and frequent game-show panelist. His career spanned more than three decades, including appearances on stage, in films, and on television series. He is known for his roles as Tim O'Hara in the CBS sitcom My Favorite Martian, Tom Corbett in the ABC sitcom The Courtship of Eddie's Father, stage illusionist Anthony Blake in the NBC crime drama series The Magician, and scientist Dr. David Banner in the CBS science-fiction drama series The Incredible Hulk.
He would have been 88 years old 🎈
He sadly died aged 59 in 1993.
Exactly a week after it aired in America, the first episode of Hill Street Blues received its UK premiere on this day in 1981.
Joan Armatrading releases
"Drop the Pilot" on this day in 1983.
On this date in 1984 "Relax" by Frankie Goes to Hollywood reaches number one in the UK singles chart, despite the BBC ban; it will spend a total of 42 weeks in the top 40.
"Owner of a Lonely Heart" by Yes was the #1 song on the Billboard charts today in 1984. It was the first of two 2 straight weeks on top.
Airwolf, the action drama tv series debuted today in 1984. The series ran for a total of four seasons airing 80 episodes. 
Then we moved onto watch
"Dragon's Den"
Then we caught up with the news.
Sleep Tea time.
Now to enjoy a very warm bed with a nice and warm hubby!

Going Up Up Up

 I've killed so many plants.I walked into a nursery once and my face was on a wanted poster - Rita Rudner
Welcome to my Sunday Love💓
I woke up at 7.20am and needed a cup of brew.
I left Sleeping Beauty have a lie in.
I got on writing my blog posts for the last 3 days.
After I wrote Thursday's, he appeared like magic!
More brew, breakfast and warm hug soon followed.
Got dressed.
Now to go out for some fresh air in Sexy Beast.
Checks the tyre pressures on Sexy Beast.
Then home.
Hubby and kids put up the Christmas Decs and tree.
Hubby puts the Christmas decs outside.
I wrote Friday's blog post up to lunch.
The Christmas Tree is looking nice once more :)
The Naughty Elf is after my Teas!
Today's Tea is:
While I was writing yesterday's blog post.
Hubby gets out the Ab's machine.
He has the whole time of the 12" of "The Race" by Yello to do as many Stomach Crunches as he can in 13 mins and 25 seconds
He manages 110.
Once he cools down, he goes for a shower.
I keep a eye on tea in the oven.
Publishes all 3 blog posts.
Now to dish up the tea!
We all catch up on Friday's episode of
"Have I Got News For You"
Now to carry on with the series=
  Live and Death Row.
Series 1: 2 of 3 Judgement 
This film follows the trial of 26-year-old Guy Heinze Jr, with remarkable access to the jury members charged with reaching a verdict on allegations that Heinze beat his father and seven members of his family to death. As the trial progresses, there is legal manoeuvring while evidence about the brutal killings unfolds.
Series 1: 3 of 3 Crisis Stage. 
The final film of the series follows 25-year-old legal student Kelly Hickman as she attempts to save two of the young killers facing execution in America.
Kelly volunteers at the University of Houston Death Penalty Clinic, a team of Texan students who help mount last-ditch legal appeals for killers on death row.
The team are working on two 'crisis cases' - cases where all of the offenders' normal legal appeals have failed and they are now just weeks away from execution.
Robert Pruett was sentenced to death for murdering a prison guard at the age of 20. He was already one of the youngest killers in the American prison system, having been sentenced to 99 years for his involvement in another murder at the age of 16.
Robert Garza was a member of the notorious Tri-City Bombers street gang and was sentenced to death at the age of 20 for his part in the drive-by killing of four young women.
As execution day dawns, Kelly feels frustratingly shut out of the legal process, confined to her office and following events over the internet and the phone as news filters through of an eleventh-hour intervention by the Supreme Court 
Series 2: 1 of 4 = Execution 
Series telling the story of capital punishment through the eyes of young people whose lives have been shaped by it.
On March 11 2009, Daniel Lopez was pulled over for driving erratically. The dramatic car chase that ensued killed a police officer and 27-year-old Daniel was given the death penalty. Unusually for a death row prisoner, he is resisting all appeals to block his execution - which is due in five weeks time. The state-appointed attorneys for Lopez are arguing that their client is using the justice system as a form of suicide. His family are also pleading with him to fight the execution and stay alive for them. With access to Daniel, his lawyers, his parents and the widow of the police officer that Daniel killed, this film follows the lead up to 'execution day'. Will Daniel go to his death, as he insists he wants to do, or will the people who love him be able to save him?
Series 2: 2 of 4 = Punishment.
Series telling the story of capital punishment through the eyes of young people whose lives have been shaped by it. With unprecedented access inside prison walls, it discovers what it's like to live with the threat of the death chamber, as well as hearing from victims and their families, and the family of those on death row - some praying for execution, some hoping for a reprieve. Each episode focuses on different aspects of the system - execution, punishment and the complex nature of 'truth'.
In April 2013, 18-year-old Shawn Ford Jr was charged with killing his girlfriend's parents with a sledgehammer. Now he is on trial for his life and a jury of 12 ordinary people must decide whether he should live or die. This film follows the court case from the inside, as both the family of the victims and the defendant struggle to come to terms with such a horrific crime. But it is the jurors who must ultimately decide Shawn's fate. As the details of the shocking murders mount, can an impassioned plea for mercy from Shawn's mother save her son's life?
Sleep Tea Time  
Back on the Wobbly Work Wheel 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.
Hubby has calmed down now after the fun with his cue last night!
Thermal vest time.
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.
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.
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.
Edward  Woodward,was an English actor and singer. After graduating from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, he began his career on stage. Throughout his career, he appeared in productions in both the West End of London and on Broadway in New York City. He came to wider attention from 1967 in the title role of the British television spy drama Callan, earning him the 1970 British Academy Television Award for Best Actor. 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 🐫
