Sunbeam

17-07-18

Needed a haircut, a birthday card for my cousin and a 5 litre bottle of demineralised water, in that order. I hadn’t taken a camera with me just the phone, 5 litres of water can start to feel a bit heavy after the 2 mile walk back to home. On the return journey and making loud sloshing sounds from the water in my rucksack I noticed this late 60’s Sunbeam parked on a side street.

It brought back happy memories from 1969 of a friend of mine who had a Gold left hand drive Sunbeam, sadly he’s no longer around, but we had some great times with that car.

Buddies, Beer and Bonneville

06-05-18

Got a call from a buddy of mine on Sunday asking if I would like to go out on the bike (Triumph Bonneville) on bank holiday Monday (yesterday), yes please I said, where shall we go, how about visiting our buddy who has recently moved out to Stamford, Lincolnshire. I dug out my crash helmet and old motorbike jacket, the crash helmet was good but the jacket was a tight fit, it must have shrunk !!!!!!! so I had to wear my windproof cycling jacket, it only has one pocket so was restricted to carrying my mobile and some cash. It’s been quite a few years since I’ve been on the back of a bike and I was a bit nervous, but it was OK, my friend is a very experienced rider. The weather was great, and we had a good time. Stamford is a lovely town with some exceptional architecture.

I still don’t feel that comfortable using my phone camera, but it was better than nothing.

Bus Trip to Town

Well it’s a lot cooler today than on my Tuesday trip to the city, and it’s raining, (April showers) so took the bus. Needed to stock up with human and cat food to see us through the weekend.  I’m out with the guys on Friday for a beer & curry night !!!!!!

A Visitor

This little guy has been visiting my garden for the last 2 weeks, he’s quite young and leggy. Makes a lot of noise when he sees my two cats, chirrups and coos at them. I really hope he has a home, he’s such a lovely looking cat.
