The kids now a-days don’t do ANYTHING for less than a twenty.
They won’t even get outta bed! 😣

A bribe of a dollar… yeah, you‘re right. Can you imagine being fired from your job for taking a bribe.

“Ok buster, we caught you red handed. It’s on CCTV, we watched you take a rolled up bill or more…

“ But Sir, you are firing me for a bribe of a buck? “

Good afternooning all.

Our theatre trip was excellent, but a late night doesn’t half tire me out these days. I can’t cope with late bedtimes like I could in my youth.

I have been to the physio/osteopath again today. My shoulder is so painful. All muscular. I came out feeling worn out and had a nap this afternoon. I think an early night is on the cards.

I popped into the supermarket on the way home and they were giving out free bunches of flowers that had passed their sell by date. That properly cheered me up :)

I am so glad you got FREE flowers for your pain. I wish there was something I could do to help . How about putting hot compresses on your shoulder for 20mins on then off, on then off..?
I would have preferred Häagen-Dazs ice cream for free… but hey… free is free.
I want to hear ALL about the theater later but for right now I think a spot of tea and a rest is all you need left to do tonight. 🙏❤️🍀🤞🦋🍧🍨

My grocery store has been giving away COVID-19 bags since everything has been opening up. They have 2 cloth masks, a package of 20 disposable masks, and a package of hand sanitizer wipes. Now we are being told to mask up again and I never quit anyway. I was glad to get them. They're good. But yours are still my favorite.🤗

Sorry you're in pain and hope it's better soon.
I have an infra red heat massager 'wand' I use for muscular pain. It's donkeys years old but still helps.
Like this sort of thing.

Good afternoon/evening all.
We've had a wet day but not exactly stormy....no thunder yet anyway.
I've been to the opticians today for a long overdue test.
All OK - I can still see more than I can have :)
Lola has picked up on the weather and been in his hide most of the day.....sensible boy.
Hope you're all having a good Thursday.

I keep trying to get a hummingbird pic but so far today I've only been able to get a snail and a halfway decent butterfly pic. I'm ok with it ☺️ IMG_20210805_150648099_HDR.jpg IMG_20210805_070604729.jpg

What a beautiful butterfly! That's a lovely pic.
The little chap in bottom pic is what we call a slug - unless it's a snail in the nude!!;)
He has lovely markings though.
It's a snail with his coil in his belly 😁 There actually is a slug or what I think of slugs in my area. It will be really unusual if I can get a picture of one in my yard. I have seen some though. They are more common a few blocks away. They are clear like a jelly fish. I don't like either one 😅 If they are carrying their house on their back it's a different story.🤗

Good morning/afternoon, all.
It's been wet and quite windy but the sun is battling hard against the clouds.
I have a very itchy hand today which is driving me mad, must be a reaction to something but goodness knows what. I have take an antihistamine tablet in the hope it will clam it down.
The old wives tale says that if the right hand itches then a lot of money could be coming your way. Maybe I'll buy a lottery ticket. ;)
Hope everyone has a good Friday.
