28-07-03 Monday.

Saturday was "Reclaim The Beach" again but this time it was done from 15:00hrs till 22:00hrs and more for the benefit of the kids...the ones under eighteen :-)

It pissed down with rain all the time but a couple of hundred people still turned up.

There was the usual attractions plus a sancastle competition and a Bar-B-Q, it was amazing at how many people slaved over their sancastles even though they were soaked to the skin.

I am still earning my nickname "Generator Man" as this time there were two to get running plus an outboard motor for a 3 person inflatable boat, the owner then took me up the river and back to say thanks :-)

I went for a wander along the beach and found an old style one pint milk bottle in perfect condition, I have to do some research on it as the bottle has "ROYAL ARSENAL CO-OPve SOCy Ltd" moulded into the glass in raised letters, it might be older than me, and thats going some.

Got home 00:45hrs

Monday....Grrrr. got woken up at 08:30hrs by the scaffolding men setting every thing up, I had only been asleep three hours.

The Old Bill are coming around to take the new statement this afternoon so this has given me the incentive to tidy up the flat a bit....well alright, a lot :-)

Bloody scaffolding, I can`t see up and down my street anymore.

I`m on the bus going up to Shepherds bush went there was a bump and the bus stopped abruptly with the driver cussin` like hell, we all get kicked off the bus and I went and looked at what the bus hit, Oops..a brand new BMW sporty thing, the bus had taken off all the back section and gone all along the side of the car....do bus drivers pay for the insurance on the buses they drive ? or is it the public ? as that little bump is going to cost a few bob.

I get on the next bus, one stop on a Somalian woman gets on waving a twenty pound note at the driver who says he can`t change it and she will get off to get change, at which she then waves the note again saying she can`t speak English, finally one of the other customers pays for her journey,
Coming back she got on the same bus as me and pulled the same stunt again but this time had shopping with her, so she had, had plenty of chance to get change whilst shopping.

The Old Bill didn`t turn up for the statement.

Thats all for now.

TTFN +:-)
