08:48 am: Easter festivities
Sunday morning, off to church, of course. The place was packed - more people than at any service since Christmas praise. Fortunately, we had got there in good time, so were able to sit where we usually do. The family service was quite short, but with all the hymns you might expect, starting with "Jesus Christ is risen today".
Lunch was delayed by a short communion service after the main service. We were keen to stay, but Betty and the boys went home. So Betty had half made the lunch by the time we got home. Mid afternoon, she'd gone home and we went off to see sheaj34, Andrew and stickystone to exchange Easter gifts and drink wine. The boys played out on the field until it was time to go off to the evening service (and longer, for all we know).
It was quiet at the evning service, at least compared with the morning service, and after it we got the chance to catch up with some more people.
Then it was home time.
Monday, a shopping trip into town: the boys got bags, shoes and sleeping bags; I got a record player. It's been a retro-techno-gap since we got back here: no way to play the vast vinyl resource currently languishing in the garage. Viv, I think, is disappointed that her time of choosing the music here is over for the time being.
Reading, listening, resting. That was Monday night.

Record Player

I'm not sure Ben has ever seen a record player in action. I think Andrew brought one with him when he moved in, but he's never used it, probably because the vinyl collection is limited. If he is ever around there whilst it is playing you could consider showing him how it works.
It was a shame the wine drinking session on Sunday didn't last longer, we'll have to get together again in the future for more of the same. It was an enjoyable, if short, afternoon.

when I click on location 31 it opens up a google map - highlighting 31 as California. What's that about?

The something else did you tried did seem to work. Handy if I ever get lost between here and there, it would be such a shame to walk around the full loop because I didn't know our two roads met in a straight line.

It means you shouldn't click the link

yeah, but I'm too nosey not to click the link!

I did that once, as you well know. But only once.

As George W Bush says: "There's an old saying in Tennessee — I know it's in Texas, it's probably in Tennessee — that says, fool me once, shame on — shame on you. You fool me you can't get fooled again."

Can't wait to see what Viv has to say about that *g*
You have been patient with Morse though, I'll give you that.

What sort of record player, an old one or a new one? I mean, do they still make nice new shiny ones?

It's a cheap one with a "retro" wooden look. Plays CDs, cassettes, records and has an AM/FM radio. £49. New at TJ Hughes. Perhaps they have a piccy on the website? I'll get back to you.
