"IT'S TOO DARN HOT" never thought I would sing that this year, my garden is South Facing so shade not normally needed is at a premium, came in burning and to make some tea "tea, are you mad" yup tea cures everything. Stockton is suffering global warning?? Knowing our weather it will be one day only.
Joyce knew Colchester it was our stop over when moving all our heavy equipment from Bordon to Germany. We would park up and refuel at one of the many Barracks before shipping out of Harwich to Hamburg. As we did the move many times to and from we got to know the flesh pots of Colchester.
You live in a lovely part of Ayshire, my Daughter her husband and I stayed a few days after a Grand Tour of Inverness, John O Groats, back along Loch Ness to Fort William, a stay beside loch Lomond where my evening meal was Bonny prince Charley he tasted quite tender and the Chef came out to see us as we were the only ones ordering the most expensive meal in the place, well he was a Royal. Then a meander back through Glasgow and the coast. We have relatives in Annan so detoured through Dumfries I love that area, in my prime we often went Pony trecking there, nothing wrong with Scotland apart from the bagpipes.
You are making memories flood back Joyce and History is one of my Loves, I write for the local Library Archives and have done for the BBC, it is not just a fad with me.
