Gone haywire. The print has gone large and is filling the screen. All semblance of a post as usual has vanished. As you know, I hate change and never understand what has happened, but I will press on until my son can come and hopefully sort things out for me. Yesterday was a hot, humid and at times wet, day here, with thunder in the distance. The farmer is gradually returning to 'normal' after his series of tests and is now waiting to see the specialist. Today he feels well enough to walk round the lead mines in Swaledale with his walking group and as there is a slight breeze it should be pleasant. Friend W and I are going out for a sandwich lunch somewhere and then this evening a group of us (9) are off to the Chinese for a meal. Where would we be without friends eh in these dismal, dark days when the news from all quarters is of wars and rumours of wars? I prefer to bury my head in the sand and not listen to the News bulletins if I can help it - after all, we only get one view and it always appals me how the news cameras are there for the drama and move on after a couple of days as though the whole thing has gone away - it seems it is no longer news-worthy. Yesterday W and I went to a village called Preston under Scar, where there are a lot of artistic folk living, and once a year they have a week-end Art Exhibition in their Village Hall. It is always a pleasant occasion and coffee and biscuits with friends is good too, isn't it? Back to normal (whatever that is) soon I hope. Enjoy your Sunday. My son has corrected it for me and shown me how to do it if it occurs again. Thanks for all those helpful comments. I am pretty sure that I hit the wrong button during posting yesterday. Anyhow, all's well that ends well. Nice Wensleydale cheese, walnut, apple and mayo sandwich for lunch, sitting looking out over a lovely view of Wensleydale. What's not to like.
