It’s the thirteenth of the third two thousand and thirteen. All these threes with ones in front could have been unlucky. I spent ages hunting the comet last night. I never even saw the moon. Ho Hum! I thought and retired to the pub to warm up. I have found a brilliant virtual planetarium for the lap top. It is here STELLARIUM. One can pop all sorts of things on it and up they come and march about. I recommend OCEAN as a background it is brilliant fun. It is even better for being free.
It’s been a really good day today. The 5D Canon is mended and winging it’s way in my direction. The van axles are repaired and will be here on Saturday. The throttle cable is awaiting me in Darlington. Dithery Dave has dithered again so with a bit of luck there will be no minimum price on alcohol. Beer pricing has gone the way of Badger hunting and selling off trees and the dozens of other barmy ideas he comes up with.The bloke does have a few good points. Commitment and leadership are not among them….thank the Pope!…..Just forgot…..We are Popeless at the moment. Anyone noticed?
As it’s clouding over again I decided to dine out at the pub to celebrate my good fortune. A good lunch, a brilliant lunch. Scotch Eggs in Black Pudding. It had a Rocket salad to accompany it so very healthy.
We came out of the pub relaxed and replete. I leapt for the pavement dragging the dogs after me. I heard the reversing buzzer thingy on a lorry. Right next to my ear it was………….It was…………………………….
I did promise a few days ago to squash up the daffodils.
It’s been a good day with two exceptions. No blasted comet and the Rooks have learnt how to get at my fat ball feeder.
If the weather is clear enough then I’ll go cometing later but it is not looking good.
That’s all for today.
