Touching Up The Rear!

I've been on more laps than a napkin - Mae West 
Welcome to my Tuesday Experience ⛔
Nice warm hug.
Brew with Breakfast.
On goes that trusty thermal vest.
Dressed.
Gives hubby a sloppy wet πŸ’‹
Now to leave the house.
I still put on 2 winter hats, and gloves.
It might be 8c, but it feels a lot colder.
Now to look at the Christmas Lights.
Puts on my lights.
Now let's go to work...🍭 
Oh dear, it was getting worst as my shift went on. No one was stopping, just kept going under my stick and just giving me the look when they went past.
Oh well, at least me feet are still on the pavement!
I finished in one piece.
I got the newspaper on the way to get my back wiper changed.
He came out, and in seconds it was done.
"It looks quick, but I have been doing since I was 12 years old!"
"Wow," I replied.
I said "Goodbye," and drove home.
I put on the coffee machine.
Loaded up the dishwasher and put it on.
Now for that much needed coffee!
Now to get yesterday's blog post.
Light lunch.
Now for round 2.
One song that I was on repeat was:
Wears one hat, and gloves.
Turns on my lights.
Has a rabbit with my two friends.
I noticed my parcel I had ordered was delivered to the nearby supermarket. I will pick it up afterwards.
I said goodbye to my friends.
Now to start my shift.
Different from this morning.
Cars were actually stopping for me!
This carried on until I finished.
Now to fetch the parcel from the supermarket.
It is massive and heavy.
(Good job I left my lollystick in the car)
Now for the journey home.
One white car I was following, decided to signel right at the roundabout.
He was in the outer lane, I was in the left hand lane. I carried on over the roundabout, and I looked at my mirror and woe and be hold the white car was following instead of turning right!
I was glad to get home!
Time to put the tea in the oven.
Nice cup of brew to keep warm.
Gives hubby a sloppy wet πŸ’‹ when he comes home.
Now for tea to be served.
Quick look into today's newspaper.
Allan Sherman (born Allan Copelon) was an American actor, singer, producer and writer who became famous as a song parodist in the early 1960s. His first album, My Son, the Folk Singer (1962), became the fastest-selling record album up to that time. His biggest hit single was "Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh", a comic novelty in which a boy describes his summer camp experiences to the tune of Ponchielli's Dance of the Hours
He would have been 97 years old 🎈
He sadly died aged 48 in 1973.
Frank Ifield OAM is a British-Australian country music singer and guitarist who often incorporated yodelling into his music. After living in Australia, Ifield returned to the United Kingdom in November 1959 where he had four number-one hits on the UK Singles Chart with his cover versions of "I Remember You" (May 1962), "Lovesick Blues" (December), "The Wayward Wind" (March 1963) and "Confessin' That I Love You" (September). In 2003, Ifield was inducted into the Australian Roll of Renown. Ifield was inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame at the ARIA Music Awards of 2007. In 1986 he contracted pneumonia, which resulted in removal of part of a lung and damage to his vocal cords. He relocated to Sydney in 1988 and was unable to sing or yodel for years as he recovered. In June 2009 he was presented with the Medal of the Order of Australia, "For service to the arts as an entertainer". He was first married to Gillian Bowden (1965–88) and the couple had two children. His second marriage was to Carole Wood (1992–present). In 2005 he co-wrote his autobiography, I Remember Me: the First 25 Years, with Pauline Halford. 
He is 84 years old 🎈

Once I wrote my blog,
I was going to take out Sexy Beast for a nice ride... 
Some saw old friends again.
Got one tyre replaced.

I got the newspaper on the way back.
They asked where I had been.
I explained about my knee..
They said,"Painful?"
"Very," I replied.

Still a chill in the air.
Someone wanted to buy my old pink laptop.
