That there is a tiny oil derrick in Nottingham Sherwood Forest. Yes, that Sherwood Forest. Pupster sent me a link to the story about Oklahoma oil jacks coming to the UK during WWII to pump oil out of the forest and feed the insatiable armies of the allies.

He actually found the story on Imgur, but warned me not to go there. I guess it has become woke. I’m not sure. I took his advice and didn’t explore. Though, funny thing, the moment I hit his link, I remembered my login and password. Does that ever happen to you?

I used to hang out at Imgur a lot. I like pitchers.

Anyway, it was a kindness. I discovered today that we might have VISITORS on Thursday afternoon. I have told them they are strictly not allowed in the house, but I figured I’d better clean the bathroom in case someone just can’t.

I’m getting better. The oldest magazine was only 2018.

So – thanks Pups!
