John,
looks like its going to be a cold wet and windy weekend... going to light up tomorrow arvo so its warm for saturday mornin. Might take the pot belly with me to keep warm! I just hope i dont get bogged:O:rolleyes:
Theres been a wright up in the one of the free local papers but gotta see what in the other one tomorra...
Mums not to happy ive spent more time in the last 2 weeks in the engine shed instead at home :shrug::zz:its going to be worth it this weekend
If anyone is going to be there just look for a bloke in blue work gear and a black coat..... Might have to find a beanee to keep the noggin warm!

Cheers, Will

Hi Oldsiron and Will, no mate, she dosent go to Cronulla, its just too far from home ( 1100 km) and would take her a week to get there. 2 hrs a day in the car is her limit these days. Actually she has a gammy left leg result of an unsucessful operation to restore blood flow to both legs. She was walking toward the shed where I had the pot belly going flat out, lovely and warm, her left leg didnt lift high enough, tripped herself up went down with a cup of coffee in her hand and ended up wearing the full rim of her specs around the left eye. Nice cut top and bottom also 5 cuts to her fingers where they hit the broken coffee cup. She is one very sore old girl today. Just hope no long range problems there. The cold weather dosen't help much eigther. Back toi the shed for the day for me. Have fun at Bendigo Will, cheers boys, John

thanks for that , Oldsiron, she is still a bit worried about her left knee but as she can put weight on it with out extra pain I dont think it is too bad. the shinner is nice and bright today, a good shade of purple I must say. Still above zero weather here but only just. I would be lost without the pot belly in the shed though. cheers for now John
