I'll be spending Bonfire night in hospital after surgery.
I'll try and get a photo before if I can. Depends if people are having early displays.
May the Force be with you.

Well a shot of you in hospital is probably more apt of Bonfire Night in Covid times than most! Hope all goes smoothly and you`re out asap

Who wants to see you having a Covid test :doh:

Now, if they were inserting a thermometer up your bum then, that might be interesting!  :o :legit:

Hope everything goes well.  :tup:

The 6th not the 5th but it was our Bonfire Night. Lucky enough to be in a childcare bubble with our grandchildren and look after them on a Friday whilst their parents work. Managed to get a bonfire night tea of sausage , beans and mash followed by a few fireworks and sparklers which Jessica`s mum and dad saw when they picked them up. No breach, no covid disappointment! I`d have liked a sharper image but it was handheld for 2 seconds!

I'm afraid I be entering this week. My op seems to have gone well but no chance of my doing anything with my camera at the moment. The morphine is keeping me in a little happy place but the result is that I'm no good for anything.
Hopefully I will be able to play again soon.
May the Force be with you.

Just the 2 to choose from again this week. Not sure how as it really could have been any shot of what you were doing this year on Bonfire night or thereabouts due to being in covid times - even a quiet night in. i know Oldboy said displays were cancelled this year but that meant if anything even more fireworks around us as every other garden seemed to be having a display for home use!

Sorry Paul, but we only have fireworks on 14 July hereabouts, and I had a lot on my mind this week.

I'll try to get something medical done for the next one.
