I Await The Call

DSC_0272

Another lie in, and another bacon sandwhich. Its pleasant out, well in this shady garden.

DSC_0273

I enjoy the water fountain, spraying upward, against gravity, the water droplets then falling once more into the cool pool of water. Something flies by me.

DSC_0275

It stops on the opposite side of the garden. On the fence.

DSC_0276

I get a bit closer and look.

IMG_20171105_220512

Its a lovely butterfly, a bit late in the season to see one, but they are happy sitting in the sun.

DSC_0280

I look at the garden, get the snips out ad do a bit.

DSC_0282

A bit leads to a bit more.

DSC_0283

Which leads a to even more. I even get the gardening gloves out.

DSC_0285

There is so much tidying up to do.

DSC_0289

And here are the nastursions. But now they are no more. I bag them up ready for composting, even though they are still flowering.

DSC_0292

Its not the only thing still flowering though.

DSC_0296

I hope those bulbs are sucking up the nutrients.

DSC_0297

I snip the lillies down.

DSC_0298

Admire some pinks

DSC_0300

dressed in dew.

DSC_0301

And the Fuschures are still growing too.

DSC_0308

And I have a dinky rose.

DSC_0311

I do some vacuuming, that I’ve ment to do, week after, week, after week.

IMG_20171105_220649

The container is full. Not because it wasn’t emptied last time, but because there is so much dirt on the floor, or was, as there is not more, hopefully anyway, otherwise what would have been the point. I head around my parents for a bit and then come back home very early.

DSC00002_2

There is no call, so it’s my choice, stay in or go out alone. I choice not to sit in. That I can do any day. And so I head twoards the town center.

DSC00003_2

Ver off to the right

DSC00004_2

And head to the southern end of Cannock, visiting streets I’ve never walked down, finding a chippy I never knew about, and a family butchers too.

DSC00008_2

Eventually though I’m here, Cannocks Bonfire night, on Bonfire night. I join the queue.

DSC00014_2

I pay the £3 and I’m in, I walk to where everyone is. That is obvously the place to be.

DSC00012_2

I head for the fire.

DSC00016_2

Fire so big.

DSC00021_2

Where it is good to see a crew. Not for our safety.

DSC00022_2

But to throw jerry cans of fuel on it.

DSC00024_2

Yep there’s nothing like a good burn. If only the pub had burnt so well.

DSC00028_2

And with that, you could feel the warmth even from a distance.

DSC00029_2

There’s a fair in full swing

DSC00035_2

And the moon is out with clear skies, perfect for the firework display.

DSC00038_2

It burns more and more.

DSC00039_2

And more and more people turn up.

DSC00043_2

And it burns some more.

DSC00044_2

And more people come.

DSC00048_2

It is so nice the warmth on ones face, hands, coat, legs……

DSC_0318

yeah I keep my coat on to protect me fromt he warmth.

DSC00059_2

But what we are all wandering now is.

DSC00063_2

When are the fireworks going to start?

DSC00065_2

As it happens there was no announcment.

DSC00073_2

We just stood gazing into the flames when…

IMG_20171105_215343

IMG_20171105_220125

bang a wooooooo

DSC00164_2

what you may notice here is how close the fireworks are to the ride.

DSC00168_2

the ride that never closed. And that was it, the end.

DSC00172_2

So it was time to get tea.

DSC00173_2

Have a walk.

DSC00177_2

And enjoy the rides of life.

DSC00178_2

Yeah, all the funfair classics.

DSC00179_2

Waltzers

DSC00180_2

DJ mayhem

DSC00188_2

And rides to make you sick.

DSC00189_2

This though looks gentle and safe enough now the fireworks have stopped.

DSC00190_2

The atmospher is wonderful. I feel like a kid again.

DSC00191_2

And thus a get a burger, a pint from the bar and

DSC00193_2

head back tot he warmth for a while.

DSC_0321

The fire burns on and on.

DSC_0324

And the crowds love it.

DSC00200_1

Eventually though it is time to depart.

Screenshot_20171105-204215

I ask google the quickest way.

DSC00204_1

and take the exercise I need so badly.

DSC00205_1

Man I’m glad to get home, but so glad I went out…….
