Amazing Who You Meet At The.....

 I'm on a whisky diet. I've lost three days already - Tommy Cooper
Welcome to my Sunday πŸ’—
Brew with hug.
Breakfast.
Our son had his Birthday request read out on the local radio. He also had a Beatles record played for him as well...
Dressed.
Now to check the tyre pressures on Sexy Beast.
Then off to say hello to my parents...
While we were sat down on the bench, my brother paid for:
Someone parked behind Sexy Beast and went over to put flowers on the grave, of the man I chatted to last March before the first Lockdown.
When he came away, I told him I chatted to his dad before the first lockdown, a good 45 minute chat we had, and then next time I came up here, he had passed away.
His son said, it was the first year anniversary of his dad passing away.
(He got a bit upset)
If he wondered who had put flowers on his dad's grave last year, it was me. 
He thanked me for that.
I said I would water the plants if they are dry at the weekends I come up.
He thanked me for doing that.
Then off to Co-op to get some bargains.
A couple had two baskets of reduced food.
We didn't need that much.
We only got a bit.
Time for coffee!
Back home for lunch.
I read today's newspaper.
Then to write yesterday's blog post.
After that, I put tonight's tea in oven for later.
Then we caught up with last week's Dragon's Den.
Tea is served!
I got my stuff ready for tomorrow's 
"Wobbly Work Wheel 🎑"
A early night is called for......
