Not quite as snappy as “Trains, Planes and Automobiles” but a good description of today.
My intention was to ride my wheelchair over to Fore Street to Out of Time Records. I was a bit messed about because they don’t take plastic and Tesco’s cash machine wasn’t working. Fortunately, the Post Office in Fore Street came up trumps.
Out of Time Records is a specialist CD and Vinyl shop and, given my recent move back to vinyl, a good place to go.
The problem that I have is, not being able to stand for too long, bending down into the boxes of Albums is quite difficult. In fact, I couldn’t cope with too much so all I ended up with was a couple of Ralph Sutton albums. Ralph Sutton is a tremendous pianist in the tradition of Fats Waller so lots of stride and ragtime! Still, only £7.00 for the two albums so that was a bargain!
On the way back, as I passed the big car park next to Neptune Marina, I saw an unusual sight – a gaggle of Triumph sports cars.
I am sorry for my friend Dan in Connecticut but there wasn’t a Spitfire in sight! Lots of TR6, a Stag and, hidden away, a lime green TR7 (whatever were they thinking?).
Remember the staff and student car park that I was complaining about. Just as I thought – closed on a weekend so lots of parking space going missing. Can’t anyone do something about this?
Lastly, I was given a little booklet about a couple of “Heritage” days taking place in September. These weekends involved are those of the 8th and the 15th. It’s a bit late for the 8th but still time, this weekend. The booklet is available for viewing and download from The Ipswich Society Web Site – Heritage Booklet.
Unfortunately, this is the first time that I have heard about this. Another example of a lack of publicity about the two.
