Oh Dear, How Sad!

 Cheer up! The worst is yet to come! - Chase Johnson
Welcome to my Saturday 🚗
I listened to Sounds of 60s.
Then it was Breakfast and Brew.
I got dressed.
(I left the thermal vest off)
Got both kids up.
Loaded up shopping trolley into Sexy Beast. 
I gets the newspaper.
Drops off son at work.
Then off to enjoy some car booty at Stratford Car Boot.
The whole field was full.
My son and I went around twice and got some bargains!
Then I drove back home.
Bargains I bought today↑↑↑
Now for some nibbles...
I went to pick son up from work.
Nipped to the Garden Centre for more compost.
Came back.
Now for another nibble.
While I was in the front garden, potting some plants. Someone handed in next door's neighbour's son's keys as he left them in his Land Rover.
As hubby has got Covid, I went round to hand them in.
Went past their old television...↓
I gave my neighbour the keys. Made him a coffee.
I told him about hubby's dad passing away.
His response was: "Oh well, nevermind."
I left soon afterwards.
Now to carry on potting some plants.
Finished for now.
Still got more to do tomorrow.
Tea time.
Yum!
Quick look in today's newspaper.

Looks into today's newspaper:
Edwin Starr (born Charles Edwin Hatcher) was an American singer and songwriter. Starr was famous for his Norman Whitfield-produced Motown singles of the 1970s, most notably the number-one hit "War".
Starr was born in Nashville and raised in Ohio, and later lived in Detroit while singing for Ric-Tic and Motown Records. He was backed by the band that would become known as "Black Merda". Hawkins and Veasey of the group played on most of his early hits on the Ric Tic Label. Starr's songs "Twenty-Five Miles" and "Stop the War Now" were also major successes, in 1969 and 1971 respectively. In the 1970s Starr's base shifted to the United Kingdom, where he continued to produce music, and resided until his death.
He died on this day in 2003 aged 61.
