CONVOY!!!!!!!!!!

Thursday, August 21, 2014

The bike we were after had been nabbed by the local scrap metal dealer which was a shame as it looked a half decent one.

Not a lot going on today, trying to book for a tribute show about the Everly Brothers and having trouble on line- need to ring the theatre.

Off for a walk and a workout later.

With the Bank Holiday weekend coming up I'm looking forward to the Trucker's Convey comming through. All the local truckers invite disabled or disadvnataged kids to ride up front in a convoy. This was it last year www.youtube.com/watch?v=vc2cd_3RWfY

Re: The Everly Brothers.........I have heard the same story that Gail has re: their relationship. What a shame. I loved their music and hope you can connect for the tribute. It should be a good one.

    What fun for the kids. So great that the truckers take them out.

Enjoy the Everly Brothers tribute. Did you know that some of the time that they were touring they weren't speaking to each other? They would arrive separately, do a great show, receive separate cheques and leave separately. Heard it on the CBC (our version of BBC) so it must be true! (That is said "tongue-in-cheek" because DH always teases me about listening to CBC instead of one of his country & western stations.)

Not another bike LOL

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

A walk this morning then we're off to the dentist for a 6 month check up.
We had an evening walk to the beach last night again and on the way back we spotted a rubbish skip outside a large beach front house that had been half filled. We've been interested in what's been happening there as Jackie and Steve would love it as a "project" to do up- we're hoping the present inhabitants are preparing for selling. But there was no sign of life in the property.
As we got to the side lane Pete spied a bike leaning against the back of the skip- in good nick!!
So this morning I have the task of seeing if the owner is there and asking if we (well Pete) can have it. If so I'll wheel it back after my walk!

Another bike! I think that makes it 8...............I've lost count emoticon




adding....the bike had been taken by the local scrap metal merchant emoticon

  Hi Caz.........
Sorry that Pete missed out on the bike. There is nothing my DH loves more than finding something he likes in someone's throw-away heap. The last thing he brought home was a 3 layer cement fountain. The two bottom layers are shell shaped and collect the water that comes from a pitcher held by a little boy at the top. The only thing wrong with it was the little boy's head had come off. It just needed my DH to re-attach it. I still don't know how he got it into the back of his truck. It weighs a ton!!!

Irish Golf Joke :)

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

A golfer playing in Ireland hooked his drive into the woods.
Looking for his ball, he found a little Leprechaun flat on his back,
a big bump on his head and the golfer's ball beside him.

Horrified, the golfer got his water bottle from the cart
and poured it over the little guy, reviving him.

'Arrgh! What happened?' the Leprechaun asked.

'I'm afraid I hit you with my golf ball,' the golfer says.

'Oh, I see. Well, ye got me fair and square.
Ye get three wishes, so whaddya want?'

'Thank God, you're all right!' the golfer answers in relief.
'I don't want anything, I'm just glad you're OK, and I apologize.'

And the golfer walks off.

'What a nice guy,' the Leprechaun says to himself.
'I have to do something for him. I'll give him the three things I would want…
a great golf game, all the money he ever needs, and a fantastic sex life.'

A year goes by and the golfer is back.
On the same hole, he again hits a bad drive into the woods
and the Leprechaun is there waiting for him.

'Twas me that made ye hit the ball here,' the little guy says. 'I just want to ask ye, how's yer golf game?'

'My game is fantastic!' the golfer answers.
'I'm an internationally famous golfer now.'
He adds, 'By the way, it's good to see you’re all right.'

'Oh, I'm fine now, thank ye. I did that fer yer golf game, you know.
And tell me, how's yer money situation?'

'Why, it's just wonderful!' the golfer states.
'When I need cash, I just reach in my pocket
and pull out €100 bills I didn't even know were there!'

'I did that fer ye also. And tell me, how's yer sex life?'

The golfer blushes, turns his head away in embarrassment,
and says shyly, 'It's OK.'

'C'mon, c'mon now!' urged the Leprechaun,
'I'm wanting to know if I did a good job - how many times a week?'

Blushing even more, the golfer looks around then whispers,
'Once, sometimes twice a week.'

'What??' responds the Leprechaun in shock.
'That's all? Only once or twice a week?'

'Well,' says the golfer, 'I figure that's not bad for a Catholic priest in a small parish.

Try again today

Tuesday, August 19, 2014

The weather was not playing ball yesterday. I'd change to go in the garden and it would rain, I'd change back into house clothes and the sun would come out. Not good reading of the signs and the weather station was not so reliable yesterday- kept saying tendency upwards (indicating higher pressure so better weather coming)...........well it was right eventually..............around 5.15- when it was too fippin late to get out there and I needed to get dinner on the go LOL

And talk about windy come 2pm!!! Glad I at least got two walks in.

Will get out there today...................hopefully. Autumn is coming, the temperature has certainly plummeted emoticon

If the weather looks like turning I'll get out for a walk....................and no doubt a weather report from the locals emoticon

By Friday, we are supposed to be in the 90s with super high humidity and there are storm chances for each day.

    It's been blooming cold here in the morning for a week or more and this morning the temp has dropped even more. It's nowhere near how it used to be for August. Autumn really has come early this year and it's not only the feeling colder it's nature too. The berries are turning already and one of my trees has leaves that changed colour a couple of weeks ago....looking very autumnal. I'm putting the duvet back on tonight, it's too cold now not to.

I was in Hampshire all day yesterday and the weather there was sunny with just a couple of very short drizzles but the wind was keen even there. When we got back home it was patently obvious by the puddles on the roads etc. that there had been quite a downpour where I live up on the North Downs. I was glad I'd spent the day in Hampshire instead!

Hope you enjoy your walk today. I'm guessing it will be "bracing"!
