Today, I drove to Sion Mills and back. The drive was to attend a Strawberry Fair at the Parish Church. There was a Country String Band playing; as well as a Bagpipe Band and an Orange Flute Band. I had taken photos which are on http://www.tinyurl.com/des-flickr
I got home in one piece, after getting frustrated with driving across the Sperrins.
Then, after returning home, I walked to the cemetery in Ardboe for the annual blessing of the graves. Then my uncle lifted me back. I was glad that I had a good day. The weather was beautiful. 🙂
Also, miracle of miracles, my ‘r’ key on my MacBook Pro works again. There is no logical reasoning why that happened. It was an act of God.
I have now got the maximum credit score of 999 after checking it on Sunday evening, in spite of a negative mark for not being on the electoral register; I won’t be voting in the Assembly election anyway as they should all hang from trees. 😀
I am at my gran’s place this weekend for her Month’s Mind Mass, hard to believe it’s a Month since her death already, and there is more ‘bad luck’ for me as yesterday evening the WiMax signal my brother uses there didn’t work, I was meant to call an Aussie Friend on Skype at 11 pm my time, and I slep for about 6 1/2 Hours and then the signal worked again.
But this morning I drove to Cookstown to head to the Turkish Barber for a shave when I nearly lost control of the car when coasting and accelerating at the same time. My mind was somewhere else. I can still hear one of my old Driving Instructors saying to me, “Clutch Up!” Driving was always an issue for me, but I managed to avoid an accident by God’s grace.
Still avoiding YouTube like the plague, but realise that I have to stop giving a fuck about the opinions of others. As the Swedes say, “Not my Circus! Not my Monkey!”
Orson Welles once said, “For the play to become a success, there has to be bad luck before it!” Hopefully this will ring true in relation to tonight’s Month’s Mind.
