Do I remember? My dad didn't call me Leslie Welch for nothing. My Aunt Mary always remembered my birthday and always knitted a pair of gloves as I was growing. Trouble was over the years they were always the same size. Bless her, she meant well. Hope you are enjoying your day, Philip.

Another Birthday Philip? I can't believe it. You're like Brigadoon, not ageing, just appearing magically from time to time. Hope you had a great day and at least one sausage butty. Belated birthday hugs. Dreamtime got the prize for best animated gif again. Thumbs up

Thank you Helen but I know you like the fireworks too. Remind me to let off a 'Cracker' when it's your turn. Hope you are all keeping well over there. Cheers

Morning all, Lockdown doesn't need to be all negative. During the summer like weather that we enjoyed this spring, Pam & I were sitting outside as usual, except that Pam isn't so adapt at mountaineering to our garden seating areas, so we have adapted a flat area at the front/side. By moving our motor further down our drive, we have utilized the flatter top end with planter boxes, bolted together. We already had the chairs, so a new bench arrived. Pam, as well as me being her principle carer, may be in guarded socializing for ages yet. I do hope you like. Being at the front, it needed security protection. I've mentioned this on our Coronovirus thread, but thought I would show it here.

Jack of all Spades - https://www.jack-of-all-spades.co.uk This has been set up for us by our gardener team, who once they had completed the timber, planted up the boxes. They make a lovely sight. The original Janet & John seat is still there, very weathered after twenty years permanently outdoors, but remains sturdy & well used. For me, it's all so worthwhile because Pam loves it. A big thank you to our gardener team, Jack of all spades. You know what's coming next, hey! BRILL, BRILL & BRILL!!!

Yabadabado! Once I've worked out how to get in it. This should blow a few cobwebs off at 144mph. Anyone for a raspberry ripple?

Petrol Head Lol I assume you'll leap in like they did in the Dukes of Hazard. It's that or put the top down and borrow a small hoist. I like the cat hiding from the camera.

Hi Neil, I've never been fascinated with motors, really. My dad, senior development engineer at Rootes, cars were ten a penny as I grew up under the shadow of development meetings at home. Mum hardly had a Sunday off from doing teas for pre-week meetings at home. Probably why I enjoyed train-spotting. I've still got my dad's leather helmet from when they were doing the two seater Sunbeam Alpine. That turned a few heads at the grammar school when I was dropped off one morning. I was a most ungrateful child, for if mum dropped me off in her Ford Pop anytime, I always asked her to drop me off in Davenport Road so no-one would see me!

Hi all, I love living in my care home. Other than the fact that my Pam suffers with a terminal illness of cancer, most of the time since she was written off in Nov 2018, I/you wouldn't know it. Today's dinner was hot mush, or mince & tatties. Pam steams the tatties, whilst separately cooks the mince, that has onions carrots & seasoning. When all cooked, the mince pot is emptied into the dry, fluffy mashed potatoes, then totally mixed. A bit of Worcester sauce, & I'm back to being ten years old. I'm going out to play now! Will be back for tea.
