I'll be struggling with this one. I'd hoped for a picture of me replacing my wind battered fence...but the wood that should have been delivered yesterday was postponed until today and not sure it will come now. 2nd plan clear the loft out but oh the tip is shut of course. That and I cannot see my grandchildren and other daughter makes me so sad. I'll keep thinking...

Anything good works Jinky, doesn't have to be a good deed or similar. If you think its good, then its good.

If you're a funeral director then it's ' Let the good times roll'.  :o  :legit:

I appreciate that people are very limited to what they can do at the moment so this topic can be as open as you wish. Absolutely any interpretation of the theme.

... but oh the tip is shut of course. ...

I had to go to the office briefly yesterday morning - and that entailed passing the tip - was mental - queues of people trying to get in - clearly had been in the garden over the weekend. No idea what it was like inside - I'd like to think they were keeping 2m apart - especially as many looked to be elderly................

Why do so many people suggest the elderly don`t get the 2m rule? You see it on facebook all the time too. I`ve found from personal experience they ( and I am meaning those that look 70+) seem more aware than most. At our limited shop at Sainsburys all were observing the distance but one old guy was still steaming down ther aisles in a mask calling - "2 metres please, 2 metres"  ;D

I guess as good as the rest, the egg was too large or the hen has a wrinkly bottom.  :2funny:

Popped to the local M&S after work today to do some shopping.
As I pulled into the car park I could see a member of staff giving a homeless chap some food. The staff member took the time to chat to the homeless man, who seemed to really appreciate the kind gesture. Afraid I did not have my camera for this good deed.

Just after this, as I approached the shop, the homeless man asked me for a cigarette, but I dont smoke couldn't help. I asked if he had enough food from the shop, which he did, but said it was all cold food and he was desperate for a hot meal. I went my wallet and only had £10, so gave that to him. His face lit up and he said, 'I can get a whole pizza with this.'
I hope he could, I think the nearby pizza hut was doing takeaway. His reaction made I day, and I hope he enjoyed his hot meal.

(Still no photo though).

Nice gesture. At least this crap going on makes most of us think about others

Only a grab shot when I went into the garden to have a play with my new camera.

Oakley lives with one of our neighbours. Don't know where the cat belongs. Oakley is possibly the calmest and most gentle dog I have ever met - she is delightful. She was sharing a moment of exploring the grass with this cat. Our cat just growls at her, which confuses her completely, she doesn't know what to make of it. She comes in to our garden most days to say hello, luckily our evil kitty is usually asleep at the time.
