    Morning, gloomy here as well, hedge still to finish after rain lashing down yesterday morning, so much for July being the hottest on record the weather men want sacking :)
    Have a good day

    Nice walk with hounds then run. Now work with lots of interruptions from a concerned wife again

    Morning Slackers. Cloudy here to just like my head. Suspect to many pop's drank last night in a proper pub and no rifraf. OH has decided the dog smells to much so bath time after his walk, that's going to be fun.

    Morning

    Quick potter on the bike this morning. Weather was weird, a bit of blue sky but could see the whiteout of rain in the direction I was heading but didn't seem to be raining when I got there.
    Nearly ended up in a couple of good head on smashes. Not me personally but people overtaking me on double whites on blind bends when surprise surprise a lorry's coming the other way.

    Back to WFH today. Got a meeting this afternoon, would be nice to Zwift it but legs are sore :disappointed:

    Oxo, apparently sticking your horse in the hot tub is a thing. Maybe the dog would be more inclined for a wash if you had one?

    I'd better not show the eldest daughter that horse spa, she'll want one for her walking MacDonalds. How dare you intimate I'm not clean, I had a wash at the beginning of lockdown :D

    Cool, Gloomy, March still isn't it? Hope it cheers up by May be a terrible summer if it carries on like this.

    Anyway I keep finding brick dust in my hair after starting to clean up the copious volumes from the hole cutting the other week, need to find the wet dry vac for that really.
    Hassle but it'll be worth it

    A grade 0 all over will sort out the brick dust in your hair problem.

    🤔Anyway it looks like Steps the dirty one, he's admitting to lumps of brick in his hair.😉 Grade zero and dust sheets should stop both issues.😏

    I did me a grade 0 just yesterday.
    I looked in the mirror and though 'the years haven't been kind to me'.

    ...so much for July being the hottest on record...

    Reading the Mail again LD?!

    Today will be mowstly sorting the 'oliday itinerererary.

    It is grey today. It is the greyist shade of grey imaginable. Makes John Major look positively colourful.

    Maybe it's from Korea?

    On the corporate hamster wheel again today, I suppose it's good exercise. Dogs have been loaned out for the day as the girls are going out somewhere so less interruptions from either barking or moaning :smile:

    Just looking at the newly unveiled AMG GT Black Series and wondering whether my car could benefit from being driven through Halfords with a magnet attached...

    Does look like it's nicked the rear wing off a GT2 RS. Mind you, 730hp and a sub 7 min lap time round the 'Ring* aren't to be sniffed at.

    (* that's Nurburgring, not pineapple ring for sg's benefit).

    Nah Pinno, the eldest daughter's nag is knicknamed a mobile MacDonalds burger by me. Hate the things, that,s why i have an ex-OH. She spent money like Imelda Marcos on 4 legged horse burgers.

    Morning folks,
    Mmm, I do like a bit of horse meat. Still not sure why people over here get so upset about it.
    Another busy day of wfh, just had to look away from my emails for a bit so looking at nonsense on here. Good night in a pub garden was had and the traditional Thursday hangover has subsided.
    Nearly afternoon, should probably go in search of some scoff

    Me too, has a bit of attitude. Pity you can't fit 'GT2 RS is for wimps' on a number plate. Price could make it a bit tricky though :dizzy:

    Did a Grade 0 once, never again I have some rather severe scarring across my head from when I was a kid, tends to prompt a lot of questions. Nothing sinister unless you count my dad slamming the boot of an Austin Metro as sinister :D

    May explain a few things with me though!

    My first ever company car was a Metro. It was sheeit. Even more sheeit when after being head on-ed by a motor bike, no serious injuries inc for the pillion girl who landed behind the car, when it got repaired the f-wits didn't replace the damaged electrical thing, forget what it was called, coil? that the A1 designers had placed on the front of the transverse engine block, just turned it round so the massive dent was hidden. Multiple breakdowns followed before discovered the cause. 1982. Xxxx me almost 40 years ago.

    My mum had a new one in 83. It was like driving in a greenhouse after my mini. Both were rubbish, until I modified mine.
