    Good to see your two feet wading into these waters Aaron. I do like the occasional poster.
    I did sit through the 15 minutes of Deep Purple and noother cover numbers the other evening. It took 15 minutes and yes there’s talent there but it’s really not my bag. Not my bag at all to use an old American expression ( I think )
    It kept gamble quiet for the whole evening – so job done. In the morning he kept nagging at me – ” A nice gesture to get a birthday card for April Stevens who was 93 on the 29th April. It was a 👍 spring day so I decided to go out for an almond latte ( £2.25) which I try limit to twice a week but the sun sometimes tempts me to do it more. I popped into M&S and they had big card reductions and I immediately picked up 3 obituary cards for 50p each reduced from £2 – I even save on death :good:
    I then saw a card which might have been appropriate for the Stevens girl. It was 50p and reduced from £1.50 and featured two men, presumably shipwrecked and sitting on a small desert island about 25 feet wide with two coconut trees behind them. One of the men held a coconut in his hand, and incidentally and curiously, both had feet and knees that resembled your own rather tramp like pair Aaron, and the other had his hand spread about his chin in a V to suggest doubt and was asking the one holding the 🥥

    “Is it gluten free?”

    When I got the card home with the aid of a brown and black felt tip I changed the questioner to female, with brown hair and a little black dress to represent April Stevens, but left Mini Tempo alone holding the coconut.

    I was to message it ” Your brother knows everything ” and send it today to keep gamble quiet the whole weekend hopefully, and to Niagra Falls, New York, but there is one big big problem ; the price of the bleedin stamp !!!

    Just watching ABBA on BBC2. I was born after their golden era had ended and I’ve never sat down and listened to one of their albums but I know almost all of the songs. I even know a lot of the words. You have to say they are brilliant.

    Two of them are somewhat easy on the eye too.

    Abba have b sides that other bands would kill for , I also love how the album’s convey the feelings of the band at the time , the early albums very happy and bouncy and by the end ” the visitors ” is very dark populated by ” The day before you came “and ” under attack ”

    🎶 and 🥑 often go together and the big numba Money Money Money seems to decry the fact that the Abba girls did batch cooking. 30p meals are a bit of a stretch but I existed for two weeks a little while back on a daily tin of red kidney beans (45p) heated with half a fried sliced onion – (4p) and some rice another 5p and some seasoning 1p and curry powder 5p. So 60p and double the government spin.
    Yesterday – I bought two lemon and herb pork shoulder steaks – with two reduced stickers from. £3.75 to £1.37 .I bought three red onions in a string type container reduced from £1 to 11p ( I bought two sets ) A large broccolli in plastic reduced from 80 to 20p. An £8 bottle of red is optional but I am on 7 units a week so zilch – and so it goes on – it’s a game only the common clever people play.

    ‘ I wanna eat with common people
    …..like you ‘
