What a memorable day for Great Britain.
August 1st is YORKSHIRE DAY http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yorkshire_Day.
Yorkshire is the biggest and best county in England, the birth county of Geoffrey Boycott.
I would normally put up the Yorkshire Flag outside the Post office but for the last couple of years the weather in Devon has been blooming awful so I haven’t got the ladders out.
I always was told that the weather in the South west was wonderful as people came to Devon on their summer holidays but it does seem to rain here a lot of the time.
The east side of the country are always complaining that it is too dry so Yorkshire ought to be more of a holiday destination for those without a Pack-A-Mac http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cagoule .
Two Gold medals today have cheered everyone up.
The window cleaner guys stayed in the shop to watch the men’s rowing eights finishing in bronze position.
A lady customer came in all excited to say “Roger has just won” but I disappointed her by saying that I wasn’t bothered about the tennis. I don’t think tennis and Football really belong in the Olympics.
Wednesday is the day I change the ‘Sweet of the Week’ which is designed to introduce customers to try something different from the norm as we give them free samples (and hope they want to buy some at a cheaper price than normal).
Today it is the time for Sherbet Lemons, if you want to see how they are made watch this m.youtube.com/#/watch?desktop_uri=%2Fwatch%3Fv%3Ds1D7bwYEMVw&v=s1D7bwYEMVw&gl=GB
If they had Olympics for horse racing then surely Frankel would have won GB many gold medals.
