    The retail therapy went well. I had the shop to myself :rolleyes: not what I thought I would encounter. Two new pair of jeans. Only because no one has worked for 4 weeks. It’s freezing cold now. So all the clothes shops are still stuffed with summer clothes as they haven’t restocked for winter. But we did get a nice red kitchen kettle with matching toaster. All thanks to the government stimulus payment :D that has been burning a whole in my pocket for a month.

    How many times a day do you start a sentence with, "When this is all over..."?

    Little plane has just taken off from John Lennon airport and continued its ascent over our garden. OH said, "When this is all over I'm going to have flying lessons."

    :eek:

    Well then tell him to start saving...it’s not cheap.
    Good heavens. Does John Lennon have an airport named after him?

    That’s quite a big airport. I was expecting a little country one like the one we have here. But no, it’s in Liverpool. I have lots to learn I think.
    Oh and it has a yellow submarine. :D

    It used to be Speke Airport. I flew from there to Belfast back in the early 1970s. :) Renamed in 2001 :)

    Prisoners used to murder each other on that island so that they could be sent back to the main land to be hung.

    And the sign reads 'Above us only sky', which is rather apt.

    I've been in that yellow submarine. :)

    Not at first. It was a farm run by trusted convicts to service the starving in Sydney. It’s a beautiful place and like Port Arthur, lots of ghosts.

    Did Ringo get an airport? Or do you have to leave the building first?

    Is that because you came of age and had to pay full fare? ;)
