    Well, that's one for his 18th.
    Must be hereditary!

    Nice fingernail-paring moon setting in the west

    Viewing tonight has been a bit of Trucking Hell, as it so often is

    Early night now as I want to get an early start tomorrow, so I have a slight chance of having time to take some stuff to the self-storage place later.

    Goodnight all

    As it's the weekend, I allow myself to ignore the calorie count, which means I've had various snacks including two Mars bars and various crisps and biscuits during the day. The end result is that I didn't feel very peckish this evening, so tea has just been chicken and barley soup with a couple of bits of wholemeal bread

    It can't have helped

    She did seem much more relaxed and cheerful when I last saw her a couple of weeks ago - she'd seemed very stressed and tired for at least the last couple of months. Presumably she knew by then that her day of release was close at hand

    Afternoon denizens

    Sunny and Simpsonesque out, currently 24°C and aiming for 26°, 1018/1026mB on the barometers which is very slightly up

    But the forecast is talking of colder, damper, greyer days to come later in the week, so it may be a little too early to switch duvets

    Morning all

    Hot, sunny, fluffy cloud. Currently 24 degrees with a high of 27 later. Barometer up to 1027 mBar.

    We're in the First lounge at Heathrow, on our way to Glasgow. Weather there is cloudy, 21 degrees with a high of 22, and moderate chance of rain this evening.

    Today's Kantar diary fact is:
    Aged 77 clarinettist Benny Goodman, known as the 'King of Swing' dies 1986

    There is a rumour abroad that Janet retired coz of this chap that kept on asking how busy she was.

    Only Time will tell.


    Morning.

    Dry.

    Sunny.

    CBS.

    19.2 deg in here.

    1024 mBar, 30.24 in Hg, 67% RH.

    Sunday judging by the emissions of the wireless.

    In other news, Strangelove Mater's bequeathed cactus has burst into bloom for the first time in years.

    It really needs splitting & repotting since it won't die no matter what I do to it.

    <hiatus>

    Sunday shopping trip to Tesco & Morrisons done, dusted, washed, dried, sanitised and put away.

    Car seems to be playing up. Probably time to scrap it.

    Lunch: roast chicken thighs and sausage, a couple of yogs, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Entertainment:

    BTC Championship: dunno any of them.

    Columbo: "By Dawn's Early Light" with Patrick McGoohan who's about to become A Prisoner.

    Casting according to type then.

    <hiatus>

    Walk walked in the blazing heat. :

    Strewth it's warm out there.

    The salting house has reached 30 deg C coz the door was locked while I was out.

    Two chem trails spotted, plus another Early Purple Orchid.

    Now my eye is in I'll be seeing them everywhere.

    I was about to cut the hedges but it's just too darn hot.

    Tea: Heinz bacon & lentil soup with Morrisons sunflower and pumpkin seed bread, bramble jelly sandwich x 2 on same, 2. yogs (I forgot to put them in the fridge so they got warm), 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    The sun having moved around, the hedges were duly trimmed and the false dandelions on the front lawn were massacred since they've started to set seed.

    The rambler rose next door got some attention from the hedge trimmer in a vain attempt to keep it under control.

    The rose bush I threatened with death earlier in the year if it didn't flower has now got two buds on it, which is a distinct first.

    It's also gone battulip crazy & is growing like Topsy.

    Tonight's first major motion picture premiere was Tenet (2020), the blockbuster time wars thing by that bloke who does the blockbusters about Big Themes. I believe a lot of people weren't very impressed by this one, claiming it was confusing, and I certainly found it so; but films to do with time are always confusing. I'm pretty certain I haven't got everything out of Looper yet despite watching it five or six times, and I've only watched Predestination a couple of times so I know for sure there's aspects of that I haven't even spotted yet, let alone understood. I rather enjoyed Tenet, but on the understanding that I was never going to be able to follow it properly on one viewing. Once I've watched it a few more times, I might be able to decide whether it's ridiculous and pretentious, or very clever

    And the next premiere was First Blood (1982) in which a Vietnam veteran called John Rambo gets picked on by one of those small town sheriff's departments that give policing in the USA such a bad name, and exacts violent, bloody retribution thereon. This is one of those that everybody's seen but I've somehow managed not to for nearly forty years, and I thought it was excellent

    Goodnight all

    Very nice as always

    Busyness status: unknown… and shall never more be known, nor explained with spurious and unlikely reasons, for Janet has retired!

    The strange (as in unknown to me, not like aliens or something) people I encountered last week turn out to be the new management, and the new bloke who takes the orders cheerfully informed me when I asked after her that "She'd been here fifteen years and couldn't stand it any more"

    I don't think she's actually been there that long; more like twelve or thirteen years I think. Apparently she'll still be working at least some Friday and Saturday nights for a bit longer, but only until 8pm.

    So it's the end of an era at the Chinese

    I might be able to get something else on a Saturday now. There's a very good Indian takeaway three doors down, and the other Chinese further down still does a few dishes I like that the usual place doesn't. So now Janet won't be there to see me go past with food from these other places and call me a traitor (not that I suppose she would), I can give them a try

    HWMBO and I have had a very lovely day out having afternoon tea and cocktails. Now back home having more cocktails.

    I may reward him with another episode of Oak Island

    edit: he has been been rewarded with Oak Island. On me noticing that there's two episodes left of season 3 and it will end on a off hanger he said, "well we have to watch both then"
