Here we are again and I can even see which keys to hit after Son came round with new fluoro tube, starter and most exciting , a lunch box from local chish and fippery containing fish, dim sim, chips and potato cake. Actually able to sit out the back in warm sunshine.
Megs I’m trying to send a video file via GN, but no go! The “hi!” cropped up because the system asked for a message as usual, but it got away from me and “Created conversation” instead. I’ll ask GNHQ for help!
Usual rent-a-crowd out again today demanding their “rights” to not wear masks etc and lots of TV News shots of young ladies being dragged kicking, screaming and swearing out of cars and what have you.! Also fined for resisting arrest, not giving name, not showing ID and not wearing mask! Our State police minister appeared on TV saying he was getting sick of it and he looked it too. You can imagine what he’d really like to do, away from the TV News cameras, of course.!
Ellan Thank you for your very interesting message. If you’re having trouble sleeping, the “Ghan” is worth watching! We had that on our bucket list, but the bucket developed a hole; that was before Covid.
You referred to Michael P. and Austrian railway. Haven’t come across that one.
“Wirral” prompted me to dig out my DVD “The Wirral Line Driver’s eye view.”
West Kirby; reminded me of departing by train from there on way to Folkestone and Egypt for 2 ½ years National Service; 74 years ago! Happy Days!
No Redbacks or Huntsmen out there, only scorpions and avoided treading on them!
Jaxjacky You must be familiar with St. Osmund’s Church along the road in Lower Parkstone!? Such a forbidding building! I’ve just had a look on the Internet. My mother had a one-bedroom flat directly opposite and when she moved in and saw it, filling the skyline, our Michelle (B’mouth) said Mam burst into tears! Mind you, she always cried whenever we moved, which wasn’t often, fortunately and being very sociable with a sense of humour, she soon settled in.
My brother’s family lived at West Moors so they moved her to Parkstone to be closer. Later she moved into “Heathlands” which gave me a chance to stay in her flat for July, which sometimes coincided with Summer; and with a clutch of family birthdays.
Being a keen lawn bowler, Poole Park club proclaimed “visitors always welcome”, so long as you don’t win!
My dear Vera was mainly interested in trips back “home” to carry out Family History searches, archives, churches, that sort of stuff. Then she developed a taste for business class air travel which cut me right out. Being a bit of a cheapskate, I didn’t mind going steerage thinking of how I’d spend all that “saved” money!
So our worlds never collided!
I see EPL has started a new season, behind closed doors, and newly-promoted Leeds had a tough welcome. Must check how City got on before watching the recording!
Sorry if I bored you to tears with all that, but it’s always enjoyable to stir up the memory cells.
