I was out of bed at 6am this morning, then after making a pot of tea I had a long soak in the bath. I am drying off, I always dry my tail first. It is time to drink lots of tea and have some breakfast and ponder what today will bring.

My Dad asked me to go and put some diesel in his astra yesterday, I had already visited that station in the morning to put a gallon of petrol in a can for the austin A30, the till roll was playing up at that time and printing out wavy lines on a long strip.
Here is how the conversation went in the afternoon,
Attendant, that will be 20 pounds please,
Me, Could I have a reciept please,
Attendant, I am affraid it will be a long one,
Me, That`s fine, I had one of those this morning,
Attendant, You had a long one this morning ?
Me, Mmmmmmmm, Yeah, (takes receipt) Thanks *GRIN*
Attendant *SMILE*.
I wonder what he meant ?? any idea`s ????

As some of you know I look after my soul-mate on a sunday, he lives in a private block of flats with about 200 places, anyhow there is a store for everyone that wants to get rid of stuff. I nearly always have a look to see if there`s anything interesting in there. Yesterday I picked up a Sony reel to reel tape-recorder,(stereo) it must be made in the sixties, it is very chunky and very well made. I don`t think it has been used for many years but with a little working of the controls it now plays. The two mics are with it as is about 10 tapes. It is a Sony TC-540.
I love playing with junk. I will have to get rid of the others, I can`t keep it all.

The Tiger has been a busy creature today, I have been severely trimming what must be something like 100 yards of hawthorn hedge, and that`s only the inside at the back of the house. When I recover from that I will do the same on the outside, but with even more severity.

I am very aware that today is furiday the 13th. SO I am going to stay in as much as possible today and be very careful. I have had a couple of bad friday the 13th`s, I am not going to make this another.
The things to do today:-
One, finish off the Land Rover, the chassis has a few spots of rust to scrape and paint with Hammerite black, clean the lamp lenses, clean out the inside. Thats it, job done and ready for the MOTT next week.
I got three new michelin tyre`s, these are 750 R 16 XZA they are a little more "road pattern" than the old ones, but they are 12ply rating and have a maximum inflation of 90 psi, they normally run at about 30 psi. I checked all the brake shoes (the front brake shoes are 3 inches wide) All okay, one of the front cylinders was starting to weep so I changed the seals (genuine lucas/girling) on one side, I replaced the other side last year. I did have to do a little welding, that is PURRRRRRRRFECT :)
Two, I have a large bucket full of brass, (approx 1cwt+) and another full of copper, I need to sort out the good plumbing stuffs that I want to keep and when the time is right weigh them in for monies. I know that I should have done this last year, but my "get up and go, had got up and left"

I am sure that it is getting cold outside.
*puts another lump of coal on the fire*
The Land Rover is nearly done, I need to find a couple of Michelin 750x16 XZY 12 ply or very similar tyers. It also needs a good clean, that`s a job for tomorrow.

I have a day off work today to do some welding on the chassis of the land rover. a small hole has appeared just behind the front spring hanger. Luckily I can get to it with ease. I have cut out the rot and got back to decent metal. I have a fair bit of thick sheet, it is over twice the thickness of the original chassis section.
The bad thing is that it is raining here, I hate the rain and I will probably have to get out a big sheet of polythene to work under. I will either electric stick weld the new plating or I could gas weld it, or both. I will keep my tail well out of the way of the sparks and the flame, I don`t want to burn my tail fur.
*EDIT, No spelling errors found* Bloody hell, I must be pawly/poorly.

It`s another full days work today, I am on my way up north to look after my good friend, do the shopping, cleaning, strip the bedding, clean, feed the cat, clean out the birds, re-make the bed, (sleep on the floor for two hours in the afternoon), hoover the flat, mend broken stuffs, it was his car last week. Cook him an evening meal. (beg for some food myself;) ....
Give him a whack with a special "Bear training tool"tm) on his rump IF he starts to fuss over dust or the fact that some things haven`t had a damp cloth over them for a month when he tries to do it and he is already in great pain as it is/
Get home about 10pm ish after leaving here before 8 am.
I do sleep very well on sunday night/monday morning, I wonder why ? and he thinks that I am a LAZY Tiger/
He often tells me that he could not cope without me and thanks me for my time and work looking after him :)

A long time friend mentioned to me last night that Walkers crisps (chips to the americans) are going to make "Fox flavour" in curry or something, crisps. I think he must be pulling my tail.

One of my customers gave me this bottle of wine fur christmas, she is a nice person and I thankfully took this gift-wrapped package from her.
I opened the bottle and it`s some sort of wine it says pink italia and frassine, the first sip tasted a big YUCK, the second sip did not seem so bad. I am sure that the rest of it will go down the drain unless the alcohol content kicks in and numbs my senses.
I LOVE the sweet stuff, this is for cooking with.

Many years ago in what is now my garden I found a circular disc or badge that must have dropped off of something sometime, and it says " De dionbouton" around the rim, underneath it says "puteaux". The badge is/was blue around the egde and white in the middle with what looks like 4 wings in the middle, this could be the swastica ? the badge looks like brass/copper with the blue and white enamel on top.
Any Ideas guys ??

Current Mood: good
