Nothing worth a mention today. We took louis on the round walk again . Mavis did well despite the wet and wind. Some old guy stopped to talk to louis and offered him biscuits but louis wasnt having any. barking at him. The guy only tried to stroke him. Now while he is guarding mavis he had no chance.
Soon be that noisy smelly night Guyfawkes. I remember one year when Mavis was expecting our first. I being young and stupid did what you should never do and that was to pick up a firework that had failed to go off. As I picked it up the draft fanned it into life and it exploded in my hand. Mavis was so upset she was rushed into hospital with early pains.
I ended up with a hand twice its normal size and black and blue and green. But Mavis was released as false alarm baby was born 11 days later.
Another time when the kids were young I accidentally dropped a lit one in the box full and they all went up in about 2 to 3 mins later the back yard was full of bangs flashes whirls whoops and sparks. That was a short firework night. After that we stopped buying fireworks and opted for organised events.
One of those turned out to prove dangerous. We went to one in the Leeds Castle grounds. At the end of the show we were all sandwiched in the crowd being pushed along to the exit which was by way of passing the lake, but for some reason the crowd was pushing us into the lake. Panic started in the crowd as we fought to redirect the flow so half was trying to exit down the slope pushing us all towards the Lake. While those of us at the bottom were trying to get up the slope away from the lake. It all ended ok. No wet feet. Now we hear them in the distance see the sky light up and that’s about it. For me seen one display seen em all.
I popped into the new co-op store, it was empty? Surprised as spar was usually packed on a Saturday evening, in fact packed most of the time. Are the customers missing Spar.
