I had a call from my church warden oppo Keith, we had a chap who comes to St Oswalds occasionally, he was baptised there, he is an author and has done a book on the WWII survivors with a forward by Dame Vera Lynn, we said we'd have a joint event with some of his vets along but he thought he's pick a date say next Sunday, anyway we needed time to sort it and have got a date but Keith wanted me to do a poster, not hanging around its already up in church, pub and shop plus community notice board. When I went round to see what sort of state it was in after the school assembly it wasn't that bad but the book shelves with the hymn books was broken, nobody had spoken about it, just left it. I went home , go a hammer and wood glue and sorted it, I also laid into the flower arrangers ironmongery and multitude of watering cans getting them stashed below sight level and the corner which Tom and I hung up the banners in now looks more respectable. Anyway it's all setup other than an inspection of the toilet which isn't usually that bad.
I've been getting the DVD orders ready for posting Monday, there is quite a pile. The Youtube hits have gone down yet again, I guess the hot sunny spell is stopping folk looking at their mobiles etc, I expect it will pick up. It's been sunny here most of the day and into the low 20's. I transferred all the still shots to my external drive and made a start on deleting the unwanted shots prior to filing but I kept nodding off. Idid quite a lot of work in the back garden borders, I called at B&Q on the way back from the hospital, got some flowers to replace spent hyacinths by the front door, blood fish and bonemeal feed and pelleted chicken poo, all good food fo the plants and soil. I also got and applied a lawn care tub of pellets. The wind picked up when I was putting it on, perhaps I'll shoot up green.
I've had a glimpse at my course material, I think I'm far enough ahead to let this week get put down to experience until I can read more easily. I'm looking at the weather and appointments in the coming week, Monday I have to pick up my new glasses! Fat lot of use they are of course but still need collecting, its all the way to Ellesmere Port. The weather isn't likely to stay as good as it has been which is a shame I could have carried on to film near Oswestry, always a popular spot. I was trying to get a blend of buses and lorries. I'm looking at doing something on the Calcutta trams which look even more likely to vanish as they have been halved again with two small remnants and a tiny fleet left to serve this. Looking at India over the years here are some shots
