Clapping morons

Stepped outside at 8 just to see what I could hear.

Birds singing. A startled pheasant. Distant tractor.

For a moment I thought I heard a distant firework but it was just a bird scarer.

I suspect this only happens in places where they expect someone to hear them siganlling.

I like to see the way to turn a negative into a positive.

This was why I was driving around town at 8pm, window down,  accompanied by people clapping as I passed by.

It felt like driving a victory lap after a Grand Prix.

Was there also a race car escorting you with blue flashing lights ?

Thank you for making me have a real good belly laugh.

I rode the Eroica Britannia bike ride a number of times and it felt great coming back into the show ground as everyone clapped you.
 

OTOH, I’m sure Orwell wrote something in his book 1984 about getting the population to indulge in a massed couple of minutes of emotional catharsis...

Obviously you aren't Lewis Hamilton; he often gets booed.

I hadn't been planning it or I would have mentioned it earlier but got back about seven having been out since three (naughty!) and realised I had no beer.

Then thought: if I change and go to the supermarket now (just after half seven) I will be then able to drive around town at 8pm being clapped as I go.

And I was.

And it was brilliant :)

There's absolutely nothing wrong with it now that the central locking problem has soemhow fixed itself.  It looks like new (when clean) and the engine's quiet and doesn't smoke.

This is what happens when you keep your car in a heated dehumidified garage.

Not saying that there is anything wrong with it Frank, just completely amazed that you could think it an Aston Martin  o.O

I had shades on, I was acknowledging the adulation of the crowd.

It felt like an Aston Martin at that moment.

Imagination is a wonderful thing to enjoy at times. 👍🏻Great escapism from the insanity of life and laughing about it all.
