The visit to the dentist went well, apart from having to get up at silly o’clock to drive a hire car to Banbury to leave Joy shopping & on to Bloxham for my 8:40 am appointment. I am pleased to report that my new crown is in situ and looking good.
Whilst in Banbury we visited Tooleys Boatyard to talk about blacking and devised a ‘Cunning Plan’ to have Wrens-Nest’s bottom blacked whilst we were on holiday in September.
Having discovered Graham (of nb Katherine) was the owner of an Austin Seven I asked if he would like a dynamo for it as I had one ‘under the bench’ at Heyford so we went there to retrieve said item and met Bones there!
This chance meeting changed our lunch plans so we decamped to Annie’s Tea Rooms at Thrupp for pork pies, fresh bread and salad. We had a chance to observe the newly mechanised lift bridge and wonder of wonders… British Waterways working to trim the willow tree which had swept our sack truck off the roof a few weeks ago. Who says complaining doesn’t work!
