TUESDAY 22nd September
A chilly and overcast morning. Has teh summer finally surrendered?
Serious trouble on the Coronavirus front. The PM is to announce today furtehr restrictions including Pubs and Restaurants to close at 10pm.
Hands-Face-Space! It's not all that difficult is it? If everyone followed these rules then there is a chance of winning the battle. Yet still some people are finding reasons NOT to do as they are told. They have their own agenda and they think that they know better than the scientists.
It was Marissa's birthday yesterday and I was invited to have tea with her and to share some Birthday Cake!
Traffic is reported as "flowing very slowly" through Ulverston. I don't know the reason.
Teh 20 mph speed restriction is to come into force in central Ulverston next week. This is to try and safeguard pedestrians who might be stepping into the roadways to maintain social distancing. A sensible precaution.
It should have been teh Lantern Procession last Saturday evening but, like every otehr event, it was cancelled and a "Virtual Parade" was substututed adn many folk took part.

Monday 21st September
Another gloriously sunny weekend. I went flying with my good friend Bryn on Friday from Squires Gate, Blackpool. It was in a Piper Cherokee and we flew up to Ulverston and I managed to take a good number of photographs of the town and I have a few displayed in my window now. The sky was so clear and the views were wonderful.
Saturday dawned bright and sunny again. How lovely! Worked until about 2 and then spent the afternoon on the Poop Deck. It was my Grandson Jack's birthday. Time flies!
Sunday was even lovelier than Saturday. Had a little ride out on my bike and then relaxed on the Poop Deck listening to to Johnnie Walker with Sounds of the Seventies. Met up with Bryn and Val, Maggie and Peter in the Little Kings beer garden tehn joined Helen and David in the Farmers. Another birthday , this time my Grandaughter Marissa.
A busy few days?

FRIDAY 18th September
Glorious sunshine again! How lovely? And we're to enjoy some more sunshine over the weekend too. ( so long as there are only groupls of 6 ).
Dreadful news of the Local Lockdown in the North East where I still have two of my brothers living. It's over a very large area including Northumberland as well Durham and Tyne&Wear. But needs must. The sudden rise in coronavirus cases has caused this action and this is the only way to combat it. And win.
Whilst out on my travels I came across a derelict Fordson Tractor. It has been parked many many years ago, by the look of it. I took a picture and popped it into my office window just as an item of interest to the public. Would you believe I have" an enquiry" asking how much is it on sale for.
