I am of the opinion that one is never too old to have a new experience; in fact constant new things is really important in the process of keeping the brain active.
So this morning friend W and I tried out a new experience. We went to a Car Boot Sale. Now before you all gasp and say, "you've never been to a car boot sale??" let me point out that some of us have lead sheltered lives (in some areas but not in others).
We arrived there along with several hundred others (this is a popular local cbs which occurs every saturday morning. We walked round for about half an hour and came to the same conclusion: we shall not repeat the experience. It was our first car boot sale. It will also be our last car boot sale. It was absolutely awful. Every stall was full of rubbish stuff (apart from the stalls selling tools for men (why is it that these stalls everywhere are always full of really good, interesting stuff (if you are a man))?
We came out, crossed the road and went into a cafe for our usual Saturday morning coffee and scone (cherry and almond). Even that, although enjoyable, was not in the same class as the ones at our usual Saturday morning hang out.
On the way there we had noticed various orange signs stuck in the sides of the road, each sign bearing a large white arrow. On our return to the lane we found out what they were. There was a huge cycle tour going on which took in our lane. There were cyclists as we returned and W had to dawdle behind them the last couple of miles to home (gave us plenty of time to view rather interesting lycra clad buttocks of young, middle aged and elderly men). Cyclists were still passing our farm an hour later, so there must have been hundreds in the tour. Good healthy hobby I always think.
Delicious produce from the garden for lunch. Broad beans and peas, and fresh raspberries for pud. Nothing tastes quite as good as vegetables straight from the plot.
Enjoy your week-end. I keep wondering how John's Trelawnydd Flower and Produce Show is going. I hope it is as good a day as it is here and that all those Photographs of rather rude vegetables are creating a few laughs.
