We usually do.....

In answer to the question though, today the answer is nothing.... I feel bloody awful, far worse than after my first Covid shot.

If it's still quacking, it's underdone!

I dug this off the bookcase shelf. Not used it since I don't know when. It works great.




Just playing Springsteen's 'The Promise' for the first time since I bought it years ago and it really is like discovering those 'Darkness' days all over again.

Seeing this post for the first time bought a huge smile to my face!

You have been missed Sue

Hopefully life is treating you and the family well....

Don't be a stranger.. come back and see us sometime soon - (and hang around a bit longer)!

Mrs. Vassilyeva from Russia gave birth to 16 pairs of twins, seven sets of triplets and four sets of quadruplets.

I, however, am reminded of the "Every sperm is sacred" scene in Monty Pythons 'The Meaning of Life'

When I read this…

Never live anywhere where the night time temperature drops below your age, until you hit 80.

Not that I would speak for her but I can say , as you asked after her, that Sue & the fam are all fine and dandy in their world.

Same also for a fair few other ex mod squad faces.

Went to my GP surgery to pick up a prescription today.

As I've now been double-vaxed, I asked about the flu vax - and was amazed to be told I could have it right away, given the issues I had getting the Covid jabs. You'd almost believe they were getting paid to administer it

Ten minutes later, it was done...... I bet they'll not be as quick with my booster, when it's due!!

Making more progress on delayed Christmas sewing. Today I finished 2 pairs of boxers for younger son before he heads back to New Mexico at the weekend to continue with his master's in civil engineering.

Shockingly in the UK only 52% of students pass their Maths G.C.S.E.


Unfortunately, I was in the 34% that didn't.
