8th September 2017

Good afternoon everyone,

I made a move this morning in a bit of a break in the weather as the local youths in Bedworth were a real pain last night, although it was a comfortable night as I was actually inside Tesco :-)

I managed to three counties in three days, Coventry was suitably busy to pick my route carefully along the back lanes to get to Bedworth, surprisingly Bedworth was unrecorded upset for the pillar in the cemetery that has only just been added to the system and is even in the wrong county, I need to get that corrected.

Whilst doing the admin side of the images yesterday afternoon a lady approached me and told me about her husband who was killed in Northern Ireland in the 1970s and she buried him in the local cemetery, so I went back to find him along with Missy. I think Missy died and gone to heaven yesterday with all the squirrels running around near where a partner scooter it was like watching a cartoon, her head was going side to side as the squirrels went round and round the tree chasing each other...

Well I'm in Hinckley just over the border into Leicestershire and I have no data for it from the office so I don't know what recorded already and what is not, I went into the main church photographed everything there and then the memorial cross at the Catholic Church and then the main war memorial on what I believe is where the castle used to be. I got back and found a little note stuck to the trailer saying Missy had been taken to pets at home so she didn't get squashed by trolley, the girls were wonderful.

Hinckley Tesco is an old store by the look of it and there's not much room for me to park up and also for people to get past.

The weather is atrocious, heavy heavy showers with rumbles of thunder in them, it looks like going nowhere for a while...
