    Haircut Day today too!

    My hair looks rather like a mushroom cloud at the moment, not yet having enough length to make it hang down rather than curling outwards in wild waves of grey

    As the walk to the barber's and back might not be enough to close the green ring, I just went for a brisk walk up the road. Turns out the pavements are a lot less busy at this time of day than in the afternoon. I suspect people who got used to the benefits of a good lie-in during lockdown haven't yet returned to what passed for normal habits in the Before Times

      Happy Hiroshima Day.

      As someone or other remarked on some programme or other yesterday, the damn thing was made & it was going to be tested.

      In addition it was a message to Uncle Joe regarding what might well happen if the Soviet Army attempted to continue its journey west any further than it had reached by VE day.
      When the fun stops, STOP.

        Oppenheimer deserves a Nobel Peace Prize. He saved Millions. It would be fitting as well considering who Alfred Nobel was.

          Walk walked.

          Very humid out there, almost drizzle.

          Thought I'd got a bit warm due to the glasses steaming up as I walked, the shirt was rather wet when I got home & took it off.

          What's this 'ere Right ear still problematic.

          Lunch: Heinz leak & potato soup (Morrisons, reduced) with Morrisons sunflower and pumpkin seed bread (end of loaf), blackcurrant jam sandwich on Morrisons wholemeal sunflower and spelt bread, red corner yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

            Sausages in finger rolls for lunch. Very nice

            Apparently it's going to be baking hot tomorrow, so I'm considering doing the shopping after my haircut.

              I walked up there, so naturally some completely unforecast rain arrived while I was in there and I had to walk back through occasional light drizzle

              And the sound of the wind whistling past my ears was quite noticeable, as I haven't been able to hear that for a while

                  The mercury* is nudging 29C outside.
                  The tiler# noticed that our bathroom floor wasn't level after putting down the plywood, so had to go out to get some filler stuff. It appears the middle of the floor is about 3cm lower than the edges.

                    Welcome to the Shaun the Sheep Website! | Shaun the Sheep



                    Entertainment in the eternal ennui of CV19 Thursday afternoon:

                    HSB S7 E17 "The Cookie Crumbles" wherein one of the chaps gets shot with a .357 Mag. It doesn't do him a power of good.

                    HSB S7 E18 "Dogsbreath Afternoon " wherein the shot chap is hospitalised while the rest of the chaps try to find out Who Dun It.

                    HSB S7 E19 "Days of Swine and Roses " wherein the wonders of the Septic mental hospital system is revealed in all its glory.

                    In Shaun related shearing comments, I've been hacking chunks of hair off for months, though the pony tail is coming along quite well.

                      And done

                      Just a few essentials, which makes me wonder why it cost so much
