Memorandum Monday - rainy day

Big wave to you all on another overcast Monday - but a least it is not raining - Friday it absolutely poured down all afternoon so when I met friends in town we headed for the museum as a dry place to visit and discovered that everyone else had the same idea!  We were surprised to hear applause so went to peer over the balustrade and discovered dancers


Did you spot the lady either totally oblivious to the dancing or totally ignoring it?  sitting on the right, right next to the soundbox. 

Yesterday I went to the Book Festival again to listen to a local crime writer Chris Brookmyre - his writing is very funny with wry commentary on life in Scotland and the occasional rant about social issues.  Delighted to discover that he is just the same when presenting - I've come across enough people who are different in how they write and speak to not take that for granted. 

No food adventure last week - I will try better this coming week.  Hope you all have a good week

I hadn't noticed the lady, but how funny for her to be taking no interest whatsoever but still choosing to sit so close!

I didn't notice the lady either .... maybe it is a protest on her part.

We desperately need rain here. It has been a hot steamy summer, which I love.

It took me a minute! Very funny. I wonder what she was thinking.

I discovered Chris Brookmyre this year. One Monday a while back I posted a pic outside the bookshop? Well one of his books was what I bought: very funny. I'm a fan.

Wishing you a good week

Who knows, maybe this lady is plugged into something totally different, or maybe she is with the dancers & catching everyone's positive reactions to the dance ...

I will look for something in our library by Chris Brookmyre, always looking for something to make me smile. Happy week.

A new author for me; I'll be looking, too. So funny, I would have never seen that lady with her back turned!

I am betting she was there first! Have a great week.

That makes an ideal arena for the dancing.
