Absolutely beautiful here today probably the last summer's day of the year :sun: so at 12.30pm Jill & I decided ditch work & spend another couple of hours walking along Bridlington's coastline.

After a chilly morning I donned my shorts, t-shirt & flip-flops & headed north, sat outside a cafe for coffee, popped into the 'Cats' charity shop where the lady who runs the store is always welcoming to me, asked her she had changed the CD product as she regular does, she said "no but come with me" so into the back room we marched & she allowed me peruse the CD's destined for the shop shelves.
She said "I have some box sets her but I don't want to put them out for 50p" I advised her she'd probably get £3 for them as I plucked the Johnny Cash 'The Real' 3cd set off the shelves which looked in immaculate condition, the kind lady said I could have it for £2.50 :-D I also picked out a couple @ 50p

Johnny Cash 'The Real' not a bargain of such as you can buy it cheaply on Amazon however 88 songs remastered from the original Columbia & Sun records recordings in nice packaging sleeves

Carole King 'The Early Years' a 'Hallmark' cheap budget label recording nevertheless only two of this CD available on Amazon, one @ £8 & the other nearly £60. Anyway always nice to have another album on my shelves from one of the finest singer/songwriters of all-time

Lily Allen 'It's Not Me, It's You - I know, I know I know :duno: but I really enjoy some of the female singers of late such as Rita Ora, Janelle Monae, Beyonce, I even like a song being constantly played on the radio by Little Mix :shock: took a chance on this CD as I do like a couple of Allen's songs

I received £500 from work for 30 years service and I was looking to put it towards a new watch, after shopping round I picked a Raymond Weil Tango chronograph priced at £1,095 in all the high st jewellers but I found it online with Bradley’s for £547, 50% cheaper.... ordered and arrived 2 days later..... delighted with it. All i need to do now is learn how to tell the time!! :lol:

Yes nice mate, that is quite different to the album I have although she does a couple of ballads in 'It's Not Me, It's You'. There are some decent female vocalists around who don't screech like some did a few years ago
