Friday; where is he when I need him?

Morning Bashi bazouks

Slightly grey and dull but not wet yet pet.
Forecast is sun which is good 'cos this is last day of sorting stench shed.

Stay upright in that there frost folks. You're all getting on a bit and falls do you no good.

    'tis frosty white and pretty outside again while I gaze consuming my 100% pure Colombian, sun a-shinin'.

    Bit of a stress inducing evening after what was supposed to be a chilled day yesterday. Last remaining uncle passed away, tick tock we all get older... plus long telechat with daughter re an urgent medical intervention today, which she is now en route to.

    Ho hum. Life eh.

    I would have 'cracked' earlier if it wasn't for other administrative chores.
    ...and i'm quite happy to kick it off, no cracking required.
    Wouldn't locals express nimbyism anyway?

    This mornings game:

    Dunn's stores is getting a make over. It's been in a state of getting a makeover for some time. Shorty remarked that 'Dunn's won't be done until they done Dunns'.
    She was quite proud of herself.

    Morning folks,
    Looks gloomy out but I've not actually ventured out which seems like a good idea, will try to go out later with the EPO. Until then it's the usual business of fending off stupidity. Might put the coffee on.
    Onwards and upwards...

    Just book it and avoid France. I don't get why British skiers are so hung up on French skiing when there are several other alpine nations to explore.

    I would, but my skiing buddy wants his newish burd to be able to drop into the resort for a couple of days. And guess what, she's French...

    That's good news 'loon.

    Made excellent time back from Cornwall.

    The old boy's send off was very moving. He had 5 kids (Mrs B³ much the youngest), 12 grandkids, and I think it was 8 great grandchildren so far. Nice old chap as I recall.

    Mrs B³ reconnected with her half sister and sundry grown up nephews and nieces, which she's pleased about.
