Morning Tuesday morning…
In 1930, today was the fifth Sunday in August. My mum turns 91 today. Without her, no new CBQ ambient LP this Friday. Yes, she bears responsibility. Happy Birthday mum…
And, as usual on her birthday, August is away...
Over the last 48 hours, it's become very apparent that you really have to be in the right mood to actively enjoy the output of the best Italian prog bands of the 1970's...
Up early and to work...
...which included prepping mum's card...
...under grey skies...
..and above a tidy garden...
Downstairs, one more fly to be let out...
The soundtrack today was no Italian prog, my upcoming LP, 1972 and the shortest tracks of those which have entered the collection in 2021 so far and which have not yet been listened to...
My system tells me I've not listened to 19,000 tracks from the almost 1,500 items acquired in the first 8 months of 2021 (almost 18 twenty four hour days of music).
I played a goodly chunk of the 400 tracks that last under a minute - had I gotten through them all, that would have taken almost 5 hours...
Perhaps my library is too big?
Eggs on toast...
Around mid-day, a break from WFH and a quick trip out to wih Happy Birthday to an old lady...
...who enjoys fresh cream bramble apple turnovers...
...but who does not like to open her blinds as she thinks people will see in, despite this proof that a massive tree and, notwithstanding that, the built in tnting of normal windows...
...precludes any such situation...
Back home to more WFH...
In the evening, it was Tuesday and so, "Holby City entertained...
That was, most probably, it...
Highlight of the Day : Mum being well on her birthday for the first time since 2018...
