For a few days recently, my morning bike ride passed this car on Walton Road. Memories of the days when my parents went through a series of Morris 1000 Travellers. If you can zoom in to the passenger seat you may surmise that the poor chap might have been there since the car was new, over 50 years ago!
You may have noticed that I've been digitising some old photo albums. Readers who aren't 'family' should be relieved to know that the family albums don't appear here - they have been circulated separately by way of Dropbox.
Here's a picture of the albums awaiting 'digitising' as of today. The pile of 'processed' albums (back in the wardrobe) is too small to warrant a picture - miniscule in comparison. I could be here for some time! And then there are the 1000s of slides...
We managed a bike ride to Didsbury on my son Mike's birthday, for a socially distanced coffee. We had given him the money for a camera, which he demonstrated for us by taking a couple of pictures using the '15mm' and the '45mm' settings. The picture below is using the '45' setting; the '15' setting gives a much wider angle. The Canon camera has wi-fi, so Mike was able to send us the pictures immediately after taking them.
Sue went shopping at our local garden centre yesterday. JJ's tomato plants have been joined by an assortment of products. This will keep her off the streets for some time. More photos will follow. The latest 'Churchill' cake, (can you spot it below?) will soon need to be replenished.
Meanwhile I drove over 200 miles yesterday in Sue's car, heading for Barnard Castle, but my eyesight is bad and I finished up in Eccleshall. That was convenient from my mum's point of view, as I could then bring her back to Manchester for her six weekly Lucentis injection at Optegra eye clinic. Two and a half hours later, I was on my way back to
Barnard Castle Eccleshall. Luckily, my eyes held out for the journey home. I probably won't drive again for another six weeks. Just as well I sold my car shortly before Lockdown!
