gala day

Stripes! I know one has to be careful of what one chooses to wear at weddings...I didn't know that applied to village fairs as well!!
 The lone piper who piped the Crosshill Gala Queen in as she rode in the Morris Cowley (I think...could be Oxford...I'm sure yeractual will comment!!)
 and to balance the horseless carriage, pony rides at the far end of the field, away from the "music" (the piper had to rest sometime!) and the football (beat the goalie) and childrens' games.
We had a beautiful sunny day and to top everything I made decent sales.

Next week is over the (rather large) hill at Barr Village Gala Day .....here's hoping for good weather and even better sales.

Today's treatment for the Pirate nearly wasn't...the hospital phoned here to say that 'his' machine had broken down again. Luckily he was on his way and they managed to fit him in on a different machine (one of twelve plus two being maintained ..each machine has a day off every six weeks for an overhaul).  
The treatment is incremental, so it would just mean another day tacked on the end, to give him the total 37 doses.    However when something goes on for seven and a half weeks, anything making it any longer isn't welcome!

We are back to showers again, so it was lucky the Pirate did digging in the garden as his morning exercise to set him up for the day. We're forecast rain early tomorrow then a dry week. We need it!!

Can't see it terribly well, but I think I would have bought your brown jug (by your left hand).
