At the time of writing I have lost over a stone in weight.  Stating this here publicly will probably bite me on my lardy arse in the future when all that weight returns.  Fingers crossed that doesn’t happen, either way it’s content!

20190614_13410620190614_13412720190614_134442 “What a team”.

A problem I have always suffered when shopping is acting a little like a house fly.  I don’t mean sniffing around looking for rotten shiz (product rotation was drummed into me when I worked in a supermarket, it’s boring but important. Plus, I was able to hide products I wanted to buy after my shift which I had priced down cheap. There had to be a perk!).  When I shop on my own I travel from isle to isle with no plan like a fly buzzing around looking at everything.  Whereas my friend MOZ is far more organised with her lists.  Ok, if a yellow label catches her eye she’ll have a look but otherwise she knows what she wants.

20190614_134028 “Final score, game two”.

 

Shopping last weekend, we had to rush to the supermarket because it was almost the end of the trading day.  This wouldn’t have been the situation if I had not have spent so long in a book shop, which by the way I left £16 lighter.  If only dieting was as easy!

20190609_172521 “Visited the dump, enjoying the view”.

With only 15 minutes left there was no time to stray from MOZ list.  I ignored all the products calling my name that I have built a close and personal relationship with over the years and kept walking.  Because of the limited time left we split up. Rushing through the isles reminded me of the 1993 to 2001 & 2007 ITV quiz “Supermarket Sweep” hosted by the late great Dale Winton.  For a couple of minutes, I moved up and down the fresh fruit and veg isle concentrating very hard trying to find a Pomegranate.  If I had been a contestant Dale would have still welcomed me at the end of the round with a huge smile even though I failed to find the fruit.

20190609_174153 “Even the smallest creature can be interesting”.

Shopping like this has its advantages; you pretty much buy only what you came in for.  But as shown above the disadvantage is that you may come away empty handed.  This extreme high-pressure shopping is good at keeping people like me on target.  I haven’t got the time to stand looking at something wondering if one flavour is better than another.  Hopefully this will help keep the weight off and I won’t be reporting in a couple of months that my equatorial region has had an avalanche and expanded.  Don’t get me wrong I am still a lardy mass of wobbling fat, but a slightly smaller one than a couple of weeks ago.  There is a lot of work still to be done.

20190611_130352 “Filming outside work, this was all i could see.”

And Now For Something Completely Different……

There was another situation this week when I felt under pressure. Covering the car shouldn’t cause stress.  Even on a very windy day I can keep the cover under control while it blows around or inflates like a balloon.  The problem this week, I had an audience!

20190609_172132 “I wasn’t lying, the wind didn’t wind”.

As I walked to my friend’s car, another pulled up and parked directly outside.  The driver and I looked at each other for a millisecond.  After this I kept telling myself that I needed to get this right first time!  The last thing I wanted was to be the subject of a YouTube video which gets millions of views.  We’ve all seen them, someone filmed without their knowledge failing to do something.

20190528_095602 “Passed this beauty everyday this week”.

The car got covered without a hitch, i moving around the vehicle not allowing the wind to take over and make a fool of me.  Of course, after our eyes met for that moment, the parked drivers gaze was probably not on me at all.  I’m not that interesting after all! Maybe they were watching a video of a person failing to do something in spectacular style.  Either way that added pressure helped me to get the job completed quickly.

20190609_172600 “Interesting view at the lights”.

And Finally……

I used the expression “there’s no wriggle room” when talking about the fact that a payment date cannot be moved.  I have no idea where that expression came from!

Said very innocently “just going into the garden to crack one”.  My friend laughed and looked up.  I was holding a coconut and only going to break it open with a hammer.

20190609_181135 “Well within date, but rotten to the core.  A complaint has been lodged”.

A man walked past me (I was sitting) on the tube.  His finger briefly touched me, which gave me an electric shock.  Damn people and their superpowers.

Also, while on the tube at Kew Gardens, I got very excited as I thought Bill Oddie had stepped on board.  After peering down between people standing (probably looking like a fool), I realised it wasn’t my favourite Goodie and TV Naturist.  One day I’ll meet the great man.

Week 259, Saturday 1st until Friday 7th June 2019.

Misfits Mid-Life Crisis Adventures in East and West London, Surrey & Essex (The NEXT Chapter).

Week 259 Saturday 1st until Friday 7thJune 2019.

IMG_5830

Ive lost a stone in the last couple of weeks, yes you read that correct! The author of this ramble used to be a gargantuan lardy mass of wobbling fat making her way through the capital. However, at the time of writing I am just a lardy mass of wobbly fat living in an overcrowded metropolis. Clothes are already fitting better; some that have been out of bounds for the last few years can now be worn.

20190604_092039

“This man must have regretted taking the train, when he had a self balancing electric unicycle at his feet”.

If you have read this shiz over the last few years, you will be used to my whingeing, whining and moaning about the bulk that I carry around. There have been attempts to shift it, but never with any real conviction. With summer and a couple of family holidays on the horizon, I decided to pull my finger out and do something about the sorry state of this saggy sack the medical profession might call a body. Along with my friend I am now on a low carb diet. Don’t worry I didn’t really know what a one was, as with most people I knew what a calorie is. But a carbohydrate might as well be a new race of alien that the Doctor is going to fight in the new series next year. After some reading and understanding we started the diet.

20190601_173004

“A courgette (sort of) pizza and veg”.

For the last couple of weeks, I have been eating the following.

At work over the course of the morning, a small Marmite cheese, couple of small satsumas and a handful of small chunks of fresh coconut (at weekends, I’d have a small bowl of yogurt and fruit for brekkie).

Lunchtime at work would be a small amount noodles or salad (during weekends something small and healthy).

20190530_090351

“Missed my stop again, the waiting to go back to Earls Court was painful.

During the afternoon in the office, one nana, slice of melon. While sitting on the tube home I enjoy 22gms of mixed nuts (crushed to almost dust to make them last longer) and an Apple walking from the station.

In the evening a salad with Tofu or a stir-fry.

Throughout the day to keep me lubricated I’ll drink Tea, Fruit Teas, Water or diet fizzy pop.

20190602_224537
“Tofu and stuff”.

Compared to what I was eating before this is a big reduction, portion size has always been my downfall. During the working week I’m too busy to feel hungry; it’s weekends that are tough because I have the time to think about food. Shopping is a challenge when all the packets on the shelves are calling my name. Walking past these tasty treats is difficult especially when I think how I used to stuff or pour everything down my gullet without a thought.

20190603_093545

“I thought this was pretty (ish)”.

Every Sunday morning is the big weigh in. One stone for me is an achievement; it is maintaining this and continuing to lose more. Exercise needs to be incorporating into this routine. The last two weeks have been an adventure, sometimes it’s a little uncomfortable, but the results I am seeing make this worth it.

And Now For Something Completely Different……

20190602_020914

“Everyone was ready for quiz night”.

Along with MOZ I went to a quiz night that our friend Rachel invited us to last weekend. The evening consisted of 10 rounds of 10 questions including entertainment, general knowledge and politics. There was an extra round to be completed any time during the evening identifying film posters with the titles rubbed out.

20190601_191518

“Whats your speciality”.

Being on the diet was an issue as everyone had brought snacks and drinks with them. The healthy snacks I had brought were hidden out of view as much as possible. But that didn’t stop me enjoying the snacks others were munching vicariously.
The subjects I knew I would best contribute answers to were film / TV and entertainment in general. But towards the end of the evening it turned out I know far too much about the current political situation in the UK (I won’t mention the “B” word here!). I was more embarrassed about the fact I could answer those question than my strange collection of healthy snacks.

20190601_234734

“The scoring was more exciting than Eurovision“.

Once all the points had been totted up there was a tie of 90 points between Team Six and the Team Two, the one that I was on. The question setters hadn’t prepared for this, so a question had to be hastily researched. Due to it being sport related, I fell unconscious immediately but luckily there were others who knew the answer was 32 (the question is far too boring to repeat). All you need to know is Team Two won, for once in my life I was a winner (sort of). The bottle of wine I was given will be kept until later in the year, because as well as the diet I am dry at the mo.
Oh, I did speak to the organiser and correct them about an answer related to Doctor Who. The man wasn’t impressed!

20190601_191259

“The face of winners”.

And Finally……

“Watching Dave and Mick on Top of the Pops, while writing this shiz”.

It’s not very funny, but I saw a man walk into a bollard, hitting his Bollocks. That will teach him to look where he is going and not concentrate on his small electronic device.

Happy bday this week to my brother Paul.

20190529_073849

My friend from April rang on Monday from Germany to catch up telling me about her adventures since we said a hurried goodbye a couple of weeks ago.  I casually mentioned it was bank holiday her reply “another one”!

DSCF3713 DSCF3699 “Parklife”.

The end of May is a said time for Monday to Friday workers.  Over the last seven weeks there has been Easter which of course is two days off, then Mayday at the start of May and this week’s Spring bank holiday.  After the telephone call I did a little research.  It turns out that the UK, Hungry and The Netherlands have the lowest number of bank holidays in Europe with eight.  The country with the highest is Finland with 15 (I have a couple of friends there, no wonder there always smiling).  Maybe this is the real reason that so many people in the UK want to leave the EU!  Outside of Europe, India and Colombia have 18 days while Thailand, Lebanon, South Korea and Japan only have 16.  If you have been reading this shiz for a while you will know I love to travel and am desperately looking to escape London, maybe I should be making plans to settle in one of these countries.

20190528_094657(0) “Warp speed”.

I can only speak for myself, but those eight days are precious, because I don’t have to get up before sparrow fart! sit on the tube or suffer the office!

20190527_114534 “Dropped by a Fox (probably) in the back garden”. 

The next bank holiday is end August, then it’s a long wait until Crimbum.  There was talk a few years ago about moving some of the days around to space them out better.  As well as a political party who said that if they were elected (they weren’t) they would create a new bank holiday.  The idea of adding a new date is a good, but I wouldn’t want the current dates messed around with.  Imagine if things went the other way and the number bank holidays were cut to help the economy.  Within hours there would be hordes of people on the streets.  Surly no politician would ever consider that or would they!

20190529_093906 “Its the time of year, again”.

Bank holidays are a time for people to relax and decompress from the normal stress of the working week.  For many this means sitting in holiday traffic jams.  Which are made worse because of train engineering works that take place closing lines and stations, adding to the misery on the countries crumbling road network.  Then there are the loving sprogs constantly saying that there bored every few minutes.  The parents (or other care giver) are probably glad to be going back to the hell that is work and normal routine after the stress of statutory day off.  That’s the beauty of being single, I do what I want, with no accountability to anyone.  Though I have also “enjoyed” terrible traffic on the odd Bank holiday when I foolishly decided to venture beyond the front garden. Seriously everyone loves a bank holiday, but it would be nice if there were a few more.  I wonder if my friends in Finland have room for a small one (before anyone says it, I know that in reality I am a huge lardy arse, but they might have a garage) I could earn my keep by cleaning out there Sauna.

20190530_205600 20190530_205321 “MOZ crushing her 32gms of mixed nuts (more on that next week).

And Now For Something Completely Different……

20190526_201601 “Such a cutie”.

They say, “good things come in small packages”.  This is certainly the case with the smallest member of the household, the adopted Hamster.  Its only when I clean out her home, a multi-level cage with plenty to occupy her including several houses that she takes over the living room.  Everything gets dismantle allowing me to give all the components a good clean.  If you were wondering, while this takes place the little girl is running around, burrowing in sawdust or asleep in a tube inside a huge translucent plastic storage crate.  This is when we can handle her better.

20190519_003736 “Taking over the living room”.

She doesn’t ask for much, a few nuts!  Running from hand to hand and using me as her personal loo by peeing and pooping in my hands, what I call a Hamster blessing!  So, the least I can do is make sure that she is comfortable.  If I stopped 100 people in the street most of them would say that Hamsters are boring, because they don’t show emotion like a cat or dog.  How wrong they would all be!  She shows plenty of emotion in her own way.  I find cleaning out her home really therapeutic.  The best things really do come in small packages.  She give me so much love, it’s the least I can do, make her happy and as comfortable as possible.

20190529_173636 “I just liked the sun reflection”.

And Finally……

Taking a picture I said to my friend who was reading and not looking at me “I’m taking a pic of my Beaver (a small gift from Canada) for RAC”.  It got the smutty laugh I expected.

20190527_173750 “My Beaver!”.

Week, 257 Saturday 18th until Friday 24th May 2019.

Misfits Mid-Life Crisis Adventures in East and West London & Surrey (The NEXT Chapter).

Week 257 Saturday 18th until Friday 24thMay 2019.

Happy 18th bday this week to Spike the Cat.

FB_IMG_1558199712159 “Spike with my card” (Pic by Jane Sparks).

I love a bargain, be honest who doesn’t!  When I see something cheap a small primeval part of my brain starts to fizz with excitement.  That little area probably shines brighter than London’s New Year’s Eve fireworks if seen in an MRI.

20190520_170818 20190521_095640 “Taken 12 hours apart”.

A few weeks ago, an email popped in my inbox from “the” major internet shopping company, notifying that I had a £5 voucher to use by midnight Monday 20 May.  This was only remembered when I saw the email again last Sunday afternoon!  The word discount started a chain reaction, making my brain sizzle so much that it produced an overdose of brain ooze flooding the soggy mass in my skull with excitement.  Of course, I didn’t want to make a mess on my friend’s sofa if any excess ooze seeped out of my head, so I had to use the voucher.  I’m told those kinds of stains are a bugger to remove from upholstery.  A discount like that is retail crack, its additive.

20190524_101244.jpg “I was not stalking the Major, honest”.

 

It’s time for me to be open and extremely honest with you.  I have lots of “stuff”!  In fact, I have so much stuff that I am paying a fortune in storage monthly.  Do I really need more, of course the answer is no!  But the buzzing and fizzing around my brain said yes!

20190524_19111820190524_191204 “A little something i wrote for Celestial Toyroom, the magazine for The Doctor Who Appreciation Society (DWAS)”.

Of course, I realise that particular Sunday afternoon could have been spent more constructively (such as searching for a new job or an agent) instead of looking for something to buy.  A lot of time was wasted trying to buy products sold by a third party; if only I had read the small print.  Then I found something that I JUST had to have, a six-disc DVD boxset.  All six films I have seen in the comfort of a cinema, and four of them I already owned on various formats (smoke signals, semaphore, wax cylinder, morse code, VHS and DVD) squirreled away in my lock up.  Why do I need another physical object when these films can be plucked out of the air by downloading them?  Two words “special features”!  I can sit for hours watching the specials, which are sometimes there better than the feature.  It did cross my mind that I am spending £ 16.95 just to get a £5.00 reduction that money could have gone to my future travel plans.  But the discount drug had really gripped me, my finger pressed confirm helping make the online giant even richer!

20190524_191250 “A very cute puppy, spotted on the way to work”.

As I have already said I have so much “stuff”, and really should be downsize not add to the shiz collecting dust.  But companies online and physical know that I, we, are attracted to or in my case addicted to a reduction!  In the supermarkets while pushing the trolley through the isles I am constantly looking for discounts labels.  Most of the reduced items I buy I wouldn’t normally purchase at full price.  Of course, the shops want to sell these cheap because they don’t want to lose money, but it also saves them asking staff look through each individual item to only throw them away (a sole destroying job, I’ve done it).

20190523_125027 “Trying to keep a low profile”.

All of us should really only buy what we need.  Buying less would send a message to manufacturers to make smaller numbers of less popular products (this could be anything, doesn’t have to be food) which would save precious resources that the planet is short of!  And maybe save them money, that might reduce future prices.  I realise this is a very simplistic way of thinking but if we all did buy less and were not so tempted to impulse buy maybe changes would happen.  I definitely need to be less influence by the offer of a few quid off.

20190521_095856 20190514_134941.jpg “Beside the river, before work”.

In the meantime, I am still going to really enjoy my boxset.  If you bring popcorn (salted) and are over the age of 18 (the boxset is rated 18) then you’re welcome to join me for a marathon of acid blood, Xenomorphs, gore and a pussy cat.

And Finally……

A friend heard a colleague say “the flap was open and the thing was dangling out”.  Luckily this was a conversation about the work van having been recently refueled and not something more sinister.

leomarsnicomars “If you want your name to go to Mars look at go.nasa.gov/Mars2020Pass “.

My friend said to me late one evening “are you taking your beaver upstairs”.  I won’t lie; I stopped in my tracks for a few seconds processing this.  My gaze followed her down to rest on a small status of a Beaver that my Canadian friend April had given me. After lots of smutty laughing I carried the gift upstairs.  Yes, I can confirm I do have a beaver in my bedroom.

Week 256, Saturday 11th until Friday 17th May 2019.

Misfits Mid-Life Crisis Adventures in East, North East, Central & West London and Surrey (The NEXT Chapter).

Week 256 Saturday 11th until Friday 17thMay 2019.

Part 2 of April’s visit to London (and surrounding counties).

20190508_204014

This week’s blog as it says above is the continuation of my friend April adventure in London. For full disclosures there some pictures that were “technically” taken last week.  But because that blog was so full of shiz which was threatening to flood over the edge and make a mess on that expensive flooring you have recently laid.  I made the editorial decision to carry them over to this week (if that cheating, send your complaints to Aries the Hamster at the usual address).  Please go to misfitsmidlifecrisis.com for the previous week’s blog number 255.

20190509_215955 20190509_220019 “I was so excited to be back at my fave building in the world“.

In this week’s ramble April visit’s my favourite building in the world and at one-point was feet from a genuine “Hollywood” superstar (unfortunately there are no pictures of this).  There is also a showdown with “Lunge” in a bowling alley.  Plus, April meets members of my family and makes new friends.

20190511_170234 “I love my mum”.

Early Tuesday morning I said goodbye to April, her time in the UK was over. Because she needed to be at St Pancras before the tubes started I drove her into town. During the drive, I got lost which involved a U turn that might get me into trouble (fingers crossed it doesn’t) stopped a couple of times to check where we were and pulled into a petrol station to ask for directions. The man behind the counter was very helpful confirming that we were on the correct road, but did question why I was using a paper map! All I said was “why not”, personally you can’t beat a good old-fashioned map in my opinion!

20190512_160215 “My friend is an Angel”.

At St Pancras, the sun was coming up over Kings Cross station, so I thought it would be nice to have one last picture. However, after being stationary for a few seconds (no exaggeration) a man came running to inform us that I couldn’t park there! The result was no last picture with the sunrise in the background and the goodbye was very short and sweet. While trying to wave goodbye as I steered the car around, I suddenly remembered a note that I had written the night before (this was the 5th draft) which was thrown out of the window for April to catch. Not quite the ending to the week I had hoped, but it will be memorable. With tears rolling down my cheeks I was transported back 33 years to Vancouver station when we said goodbye after our journey from Ontario. After a lovely week together in London, I really felt sad and upset that it was time to say goodbye again.

During the last week one important part of my life met other important aspects of my life. If honest I never thought they would ever meet, I am really pleased that they did.

April, a week ago you only knew me in Blighty. Now you know MOZ and Mum, who think you are very special. Then there is Lunge and Anoodle & Jbomb who all really enjoyed spending time with you. I know for a fact that you are always welcome to visit and stay with us. Thank you for an amazing week, the reality of work and normal life is an issue, but I will make positives out of any negatives, and remember what you told me. Thank you for being my friend these last 33 years and thanks for visiting. Happy travels in France and Germany have a safe journey home. Lots of love your friend Dana.

Talking about movie franchises and how they are cash cow. April came up with the term “money moo”.

At Liverpool Street station sat on a train in the front carriage waiting to leave. A woman with a very squeaky pink case on wheels made the train driver open the cab door to look down the carriage because he was worried there was a fault with the train. This made everyone including the slightly embarrassed lady laugh.

Week 255, Saturday 4th until Friday 10th May 2019.

Misfits Mid-Life Crisis Adventures in East, West and Central London & Essex (The NEXT Chapter).

Week 255 Saturday 4th until Friday 10thMay 2019.

20190508_204014

From Wednesday 8th until Tuesday 14th of May I have a friend visiting from Canada (via Scotland). This means that for the next two blogs I am going to pretend to be a tourist in London, a city I have spent far too long in.

First a little background (It’s all content). In 1986 while visiting Canada I travelled on the Trans Canadian railway from Toronto to Vancouver and back again. At Thunder Bay a woman got on who was also travelling to British Columbia. For the next three days we spent every hour together. Saying goodbye to my new friend April in Vancouver was emotional and difficult. I felt I knew her so well even though we had actually only known each other a couple of days.

I am so pleased to report that we remained friends ever since, first using snail mail, then emails and now social media. We don’t have a lot of contact, but my Thunder Bay friend has been a constant in my life ever since. Not a single Crimbum or bday goes by without me receiving a card, no matter where I have lived. When April announced last year she was making her first visit to the UK, meeting family in Scotland before arriving in London (then onto France and Germany) I knew we would spent time together. I am really looking forward to spending time with my friend after all these years, as well as seeing the capital through her eyes.

So this is “Part One of pretending to be a tourist in London”.

Week 254, Saturday 27th April until Friday 3rd May 2019.

Misfits Mid-Life Crisis Adventures in East, North East and West London & Surrey (The NEXT Chapter).

Week 254 Saturday 27th April until Friday 3rd May 2019.

IMG_5830

First, a trailer for the next two weeks of this blog!  From the 8th until 14th of May, I have a friend from Canada visiting the capital for the first time.  This means that during the next couple of weeks I will write about seeing London through the eyes of a tourist.  Living in the city I have been to a lot of the top tourist attractions, but of course I see them from a Londoners point of view.  Maybe queuing for extortionately priced London tatt “made in China” with a visitor might give me a new appreciation for the city.

20190427_132239 “I am officially A Late Night Loser” #89″.  

So, join my friend April (as a Canadian I wonder if I can bribe her with as many pictures of Michael Palin as a Lumberjacks in women’s clothes as she can stand, to write about her experience here. It saves me coming up with content) MOZ and myself as we go on the tourist trail of a city that many consider one of the most exciting in the world (personally, I don’t!).  You never know this might change my opinion of London.

20190501_191431 “Its Chocolate!  Don’t worry, I am a good Aunt”.

And now for this week’s ramble.

20190502_185701 “7pm Thursday evening”.

Every couple of weeks I attend a Frazzled Café (http://www.frazzledcafe.org), during the meeting the facilitator could hold up a white piece of paper if the subject of the conversation goes off topic or a speaker is hogging the conversation.  Please don’t imagine that this is being used all the time, it’s an aid to help the conversation between participants flow and to allow all to speak if they want.

20190430_235212 “Noticed an interesting message scrolling along the bottom of the call info board at work”.

Could this be the future of communication, forget expensive folding phone and other wizardry!  Just think if we all carried instead of a piece of paper or small white card to inform the people that the conversation has dried up and should be put out of everyone’s misery. Picture the scene you’re with a person who is droning on and on, your eyes have glazed over your only response is the occasionally grunt to confirm that you are still conscious. Even this doesn’t stop them from continuing to yak!  That would be an ideal time to pull out a little white card.  Maybe the system could be adapted so that on one side in large friendly letters the word “STOP” is printed in red!  This would be perfect for those occasions when you need to end a conversation in an emergency.

20190503_095316 20190503_095602 “Spring really is coming”.

Life really would be so much easier for all if we all had a little card.  Here are examples that immediately spring to mind.  Sitting in a team meeting where nothing of any importance is being said, hold up the card!  A Skype conversation has run its course, then show the card! A card like this would be invaluable on public transport, for instance when annoying people conducted very loud phone conversations.  If a group of commuters all held up their cards maybe the person might realise that they should either end the call or move to a different carriage or alight from the train!  Imagine sitting in a job interview, you have heard enough about how wonderful it is to work in an open plan office, then hold up the card!  How about when you are sitting in a famous corporate coffee establishment, enjoying a sugary bucket of gloop.  The person you are with or another customer nearby is chatting away and not allowing you to sip your over expensive beverage.  Then whip out the card, which afterwards it could serve as a coaster to protect the furniture.

20190428_185103 20190428_185018 “Rushing through Abney Park Cemetery.  Will return to spend more time, very interesting place”. 

Eventually there would be white card emojis on computers, phones and all social media sites.  Think of all the pointless typing that you do because you can’t bring a text conversation to an end.  All the time saved because of using the card emoji would allow you to do something less boring instead.

20190429_100036 20190429_100017 “A peaceful walk before the madness of work”.

Don’t get me wrong, I spend a huge amount of time boring people (not just with this blog) for instance when I ramble on about obscure 60s black and white Doctor Who.  Even though I can sense that the person in front would rather poke their eyes out with a cocktail stick, they politely allow me to carry on boring them.  If they produced a white card, I wouldn’t subject them to anymore torture and move on and find a fresh victim!  During a Frazzled cafe meeting if I see the facilitators hand crawl towards the paper/ card it makes me smile, and certainly keeps me “on topic”.  I seriously think this could be a good idea, let me know what you think.  Let’s start a trend!

20190501_214631 “Not my hat!”.
