For much of the day, my current top 50 latest acquisitions soundtracked on shuffleplay...

This beastie was lurking as I lunched in Princes St Gardens...


I walked home accompanied by possibly my current No 1 (pop pickers)..

No, not this (which I owned back in 1972)...


 Neal Morse's latest...


Superb album - including, on the second disc, a sterling version of Jimmy Webb's "MacArthur Park" - quite possibly the best version I've heard...

I walked for an hour under overcast skies...



I did not go to Jane and Bobby's...


I did not go to Anne's mum's...


I did not go to the zoo...


I did, however, have a rather annoyingly steep hill to climb at around 45 minutes into the journey...


Worth it though for the final downhill five minutes or so...


More Neal Morse enjoyed at home, along with the film "Touch Yello"...


...featuring Yello, as you may have surmised...

Zingy salad complemented the walking effort...

On TV, nothing except "University Challenge" enticed...

Particularly young and, in the main, probably not popular babysitters talking part this evening..

The commentary on Twitter was reasonable...

Of course, I'm sure most begrudging viewers' comments might be summed up thus:-
1) "They look funny,"
2) "Wrong answer- Hah, Idiot!"
3) "I got 2 right this week."

Lights out...

Highlight of the Day : Walking home...
