    With the forum stalling and causing me heartache, let me repost the message I was writing ;)
    Mrs BRS has also ordered a dishwasher today but as I flooded the kitchen in our last place, the only tool was me - she'd be delighted to embarrass me with the full nightmare on Elm St saga. @Muddy Cyclist

    @gennepher - I hear you ...Bath's sunny spring like day brought hordes onto the streets...and I saw 2 nice young PCs handing out covid violation tickets to a group from London. They did however oooh and ahhh over Arthur, the tart masquerading as a standard poodle!! ;)

    Thank you. I gave you an optimistic because with no one going abroad, or to the seaside or shopping centres I am afraid Little Britain is getting rather crowded, wilderness Is hard to find and be alone in. :(

    Busy busy - always good to store up some points. Love the bareness of your painting - not as bare as some folk think though. Reminds me of North Yorks moors and parts of the Cheviots - excellent to walk through.

    As you know we have been and still are working hard on recording virtual performances. Anyone interested here is the latest Recorder Quartet piece we have compleated me on Bass Recorder Mrs Mc on Soprano its classical Purcell

    If you can bear to hang on the next piece will be a folk tune with the Recorder Quartet and guests. On this I play Bass Recorder, guitar, Cajon, Harmonica. MRs MC plays Soprano and Treble Recorder, guests do the rest.

    Keeps us out of mischief unlike some forum members @alf_Josiah :) fancy joining us on the plinky plonk?

    I love Suduko and Mah Jong and find them really relaxing but sometimes do wonder if I should be doing something more productive.

    I have now got to level 306 on a new Mah Jong game I started not that long ago.

    Actually it's an app.
    Wordscapes. Basically anagrams.
    The free version has lots of adverts for other games, which can be irritating. However as you progress they get fewer and are more easily skipped.

    good evening all :)

    4.7 today

    a mild day but with a very brisk wind from the sea here so mr gee and I got our walk in early then did some garden tidying.

    Tomorrow we go over to collect mum to take her to get her pension so I hope it stays dry ;)
    Mum says Katy isn't keen to go out in the garden today when it's really windy, she's fine with the soggy snowy ground but less so with the wind flapping her ears about :hilarious:

    Phone call just before 5pm today from our Health Centre, I'm booked in for my jab next Tuesday morning :joyful:

    Hope your day is treating you well :)

    @jjraak - great progress all round :joyful:

    @gennepher - selfie? very nice ;) Popeye looks properly appreciative :)

    @dunelm - A fine kingfisher and your always excellent bamboo, I do appreciate how you've managed that minimal but effective background :joyful:

    @BRSBRI - I suspect Katy would find Arthur a bit of a puzzle, kind of familiar but bigger... much bigger! :hilarious: (Katy is mum's little dog ).

    @Muddy Cyclist - Splendid heathland painting. I especially love the way you have handled the colour through the landscape :joyful: and I look forward to the next A3 tree ;)
    I enjoyed your Purcell rendition thank you, there is something very satisfying about his measured cadence :)

    art bit - have a windswept tree ;) - based on a photo found online

    I remember being horrified to read in a National newspaper a few years ago that Holkham Beach was one of Norfolk's best kept secrets. Well, unfortunately, it was until then.

    Thank you @geefull - it was a bit windswept and interesting here today also. Love your tree - all that work with the background really sets it off. Magic.

    I think Archie is very similar to Arthur. He loves people ooohing and ahhhing over him. Actually he is a bit put out if they don't.

    Hope dishwasher installation goes better this time.

    Thank you, I do enjoy heathland and a joy to paint. Purcell was good to play, quite easy other than a couple of accidental notes which I could not get my mind around, needed muscle memory in the end.

    Good windswept tree from you and some well painted foreground grass.

    Good news on your jab.

    Thank you. :) I love word games. I play Outspell free all the time at the Washington Post quizzes website. Kinda like Scrabble.
