Ooooh, sorry Juud!

I suppose we ought to be keeping an eye out for a suitable replacement vessel for FSL's perusal. Anyone seen a likely offering? Has to be easy to comandeer because our resident stowaway is usually the first sent to quell any opposition before the rest of us clamber aboard. He's a good lad and worth any amount of vittles and rum!

I want not to wake up @ 03:30 (and be unable to go back to sleep).
It's been a long day . . .

Oh it's okay, Juud ... we're just following his example and lying around in bed doing sod all.

Have to agree, RbG ... plus a few spare tights/pantyhose for Lily of course. Actually, I'm thinking of getting him his own fridge ... nothing worse than drinking warm bilge water in the middle of summer. He needs a nice, cold drink.

4ma send this link to your missus and hope for a favourable outcome?

Not a foolproof strategy, mind you. It got me a roadworker suit for Xmas once, but that generator still eludes me.

Ricardian, absorbing video. Watched it all the way, on full screen. As you say, the craftsmanship is a thing of beauty.

RBG, your reaction is akin to what we experience during Crew Resource Management courses at work.
Taken to heart only by those who didn't t need the course in the first place.
Are robins really such bullies? Didn't know that; being an ornithological nincompoop and all.
Attendance at my bird-feeding station is singularly lackluster this year. As opposed to last year, when it was dead busy. Trying to pinpoint the cause, a milder winter and store bought rather than home made fat-balls come to mind. But it's odd.



Forecast for a sh!tload of snow between now and tomorrow evening. At temps hovering around the freezing point. Shoveling dry snow is one thing, but shoveling large amounts of the wet stuff ... getting older, IŽm losing the motivation for it. Still and all, hard physical work is good for brain and body.

Best get in more wood and give the pooch a longish walk before it starts coming down.

This is entirely true, hf ... but then guess who has all the reserved seats on lifeboat #5 should everything go lady-bumps up.

I see we are up to five phantom pages now. Can we book the Mary Celeste to park them on when we move in 46 posts time? They seem to be taking up a lot of room and I'm sure they would feel at home there.

Home at last. A quick trip to the quack became almost a month long hook up to a drip which became infected and ended up with a catheter right up to the heart (I think that's how they place stents?)
Hope the FSL is also on the mend and soon be out and about again though I expect being told to lay off the tabs will have a profound effect on the local economy.

One shall remain silent on that issue, Slfsfu ... one had quite forgotten about the secrecy of the arrangements.

One has also just noticed that one has been spelling Lilly's name incorrectly ... without the double ll in the middle. One apologises for this oversight and by way of compensation a sock is being knitted for Lilly in pretty colours and from the softest wool. One shall leave it next to lifeboat #5 along with some ginger and coconut cake and some Anzac bikkies.

That be OK Bluey one do knows that spellin' be an individual thingy, as do suit ones way o' thinkin' like.

They socks do sound marv.... (very good) an' Lilly will love 'em. If we dun goes for that there Iowa type craft do yous think yous could knit some to go over t' guns, as camofl... (t' hide 'em)

One shall look for'ard to eatin' they ginger an' coconut cake wi' Anzac bikkies. They'll go nice like wi' a cup o' 'ot bilge water

Thank you for that link Madam Juud- lots of kit for my colleagues on't canal to drool over. We will soon be having a need for a mini-digger to help fix a leak - know where to go to now.

I take it that the spec for the next vessel includes at least five lifeboats otherwise there may be trouble from "certain quarters".

Hmmm, I see the "pprune no ads style" option has gone missing.
Oh well, just enable my ad blocker and the ads are gone again. In your face, IB.

Well if the site did update, it still works in spite of it.
There appears to be some subtle differences.

+3C, partly cloudy and sleet forecast.
What more could you wish for.

Big green button pressed.
Up we go.
