My American readers will be aware that today is the 58th anniversary of the JFK assassination. Whilst I can remember what I was doing on August 16th 1977 when Elvis Presley died, I was just 7 years old in 1963 and at school.
Our day has been a mixed bag on the weather front following a night of heavy rain. This morning was at least dry, and we had a field trip to replace the throwovers for our settees as the ones we purchased a little while ago were too small to cover them completely and too big to tuck in.
I also did some fruit shopping and sad as it is to convert to old money as I sometimes still do, paid over 13 shillings (66p) for a solitary apple and nearly 14 bob (69p) for a single pear. Two bananas set us back 22p, I got some raspberries reduced to 62p, some red seedless grapes which are part of a price war with one of the discount supermarkets for £1.06, and a honeydew melon cost us 95p.
Coming home, rainbows seemed to be everywhere so I’m not sure if we were chasing them or they were following us!
Photo Dec 2019 on the beach road we came home on today.
We had showers alternating with sunshine and we’d been home about half an hour when the skies opened.
Lunch today was a spaghetti bolognese and I have enough for tomorrow which will either be with a baked potato or I’ll do some mash and have a cottage pie with side veg.
