When we'd finished we thought as the weather was still good we'd potter down through shap and look for somewhere to eat but this was thwarted as the A6 was shut so we ended up going down the M6 and coming off to retrace our steps a couple of miles to shap village but as the road was closed to the north the pubs weren't doing food. We came through Kendal but couldn't see anywhere decent to eat but then found the M6 south was shut and had to take an initially poorly signposted diversion which took us many miles out of our way but came back out at the junction which has the road to Kirkby Lonsdale so we headed there and came across a pub called the Lough at Cow Brow where we had an expensive but enjoyable meal and somewhere we'd go again and the had superb puddings, I could have gladly eaten any one ( maybe two) of about 8 which appealed to me. By the time we got home and opened to post and watched an hour of tv while we unwound it was time for bed.
In the morning there were plenty of jobs to be got on with and after clearing the post we got the DVD stock loaded in the PMP van ready to set up at Boyle St museum on Friday. There were lots of other errands to do and then after lunch I've got the two DVDs for Edinburgh and Glasgow made and the covers ready and listed on the shop page. It's my birthday tomorrow, a whacking 64 years under the belt, getting a bit rickety as well, I think the new knee has had a bit of a pounding this week. Tomorrow afternoon we have tea with songs from the shows at Clonter opera. I've been copying some of the 16mm films so I can get them sold one, some are quite valuable such as the 50 minute 16mm film on the construction of the Forth Road Bridge, a monster of a reel as you may be able to imagine. Anyway must go, I'll put clips on Youtube but if you are one of those using ad blockers you may be the cause of the dramatic collapse of revenue and we may well decide to pull the plug on these clips and will start our subscription channel which will be PMP Catch Up which will start with our earliest numbered DVDs at full quality direct from the DVD. There will be a reduced rate for the first year rising when there is a reasonable amount on there. Photos from Edinburgh.
