mancunian summer


I don’t think the sun is ever going to shine. Last week it was cold but not rainy and we all went down to the piano bar by Bridgewater and had lunch outdoors. One makes due.

    Isn’t that England’s “thing?” Lack of sunshine?

    I hate to feed into any related or otherwise. But I really could do with some good old fashion June weather just about now…

    The sun is behind the clouds. A thought for all of us in troubled, dark times. The sun/Son never leaves us. . .

    Photos of projects up. Blogspot comes through again!

    Once you have the sun, if I could borrow it for awhile, I’d really appreciate it.

    But how quaint and wonderful is that shot.

    Whatever, Sinclair’s Oyster Bar has the best local brew in Northern England. Suck it up and drink inside.

    Buffy, I am SO in agreement. This weather here has put me in a serious funk. May the sun shine on us both soon…

    Oh, quit your bellyaching, Buff. In nine months or so you can have the tiny pancakes with chocolate sauce ’round the corner there.

    Holy smoke. Look who it is. Flynn.

    Do you believe I’ve never had those. I complain about the rain, but the truth is, the sun is hard on the skin..wrinkles and all..and who wants those? I’d rather just sit under air in the restaurant at HN’s and watch the breakdancers in the street.

    Didn’t you work in the Northern Quarter?

    Thank you for stopping by the other day :smile:.

    Oh, and yes. I worked at Centro on Tib Street.

    Pulled pig and German sausages. Mulled wine and gingerbread. Stinky cheese and christmas trees. Can you beat it?

    Centro – the chip platters and foreign beers. I had no idea.
