It's Back!

All the things I really like to do are illegal, immoral, or fattening - Alexander Woollcott
Welcome to my Tuesday fun πŸ‘‹
Time to do a new Heardle Selection!
Heardle 60s:
My answers:
Now for some Breakfast with Brew!
Dressed.
(Thermal vest is on)
The sexy lumo trousers goes on, as there is heavy rain forecasted for this morning!
I gave hubby a sloppy wet one πŸ’‹ before I left.
Already raining when I left.
On goes Winter coat, big gloves, and winter hat.
Gets the newspaper first.
Turns my lights on and then waits uncover to start my morning shift!
Walks over to my spot with my big stick!
The rain is chucking it down, and we still have car drivers braking at the last minute!
Oh dear. A few cars on the otherside nearly had a Smack with my big stick for not stopping.
The rain isn't stopping!
I was glad to finish in one piece!
Home time
I put on the coffee machine.
Unloads the dishwasher and loads it back up.
Coffee Time.
Now to start on tonight's tea.
Vegetable Pie!
Cooked all the vegetables.
Added the white wine and double cream.
Rolled out the pastry.
Brushed some egg over the pie lids.
Put the pies in the oven for later.
Early liquid lunch!
The rain has stopped!
The sun has come out \o/
Now for part two!
Puts on my Summer Coat and Summer Cap as my Winter coat is still damp from this morning.
Goes and puts on my lights!
Meets up with my friends.
Time for coffee and rabbit!
Going to have some fun with the low lying sun later on↓
Once we finished, we carried on with the rabbit outside.
Then it was time to say goodbye.
Now to start the afternoon shift.
The low lying sun wasn't helping the situation.
Some cars had to brake very quickly!
One car driver put his hand up as he drove straight under my big stick!
At least I finished in one piece!
Now home time.
Cup of tea is needed after that!
Oven put on.
Hubby comes home and has a sloppy wet one πŸ’‹
The pies are ready to dish up!
Yum!
I baked some fruit tarts for pudding as well.

Good job his son gave me a spare key!
Now to get dressed!

Larry Grayson , born William Sulley White, was an English comedian and television presenter who was best known in the 1970s and early '80s. He is best remembered for hosting the BBC's popular series The Generation Game and for his high camp and English music hall humour.
His camp stand-up act consisted mainly of anecdotes about a cast of imaginary friends; the most frequently mentioned were Everard and Slack Alice. He is often cited as one of the first gay entertainers to have enjoyed mass appeal, although he never made any reference to his sexuality. He was devoted to his adopted home town of Nuneaton, where a museum display relating to his life and work and a memorial have been established. 
He died on this day in 1995 aged 71.
