    A cold wind is a comin' your way. Brr this morning.

    Fed birds, fed Beans (twice), now drinking coffee, will nurse back, stretch. Did an hour on the rollers yesterday which didn't aggravate it any.

    Watch CX later maybe, pending what's on the idiots lantern tonight.

    Let's wake up some of the brethren and diddery dodders like @stevo666 shall we?

    Chop chop @Seanoconn, you've got a car to put back together.

    @tlw1 Walk dogs, run, maybe beer later?
    Ovaltine time @Wheelspinner ?
    Get your arris into gear @johngti
    @veronese68 (too early for him, pointless really)

    Does not beans slaughter the birds that you feed?

    Can you keep the noise down please. Some of us are a bit delicate this morning.

    Humph. Too early...

    Junior is driving back up to Liverpool tomorrow, so today will be jobs, getting her a few bits n pieces and checking the car over. Unfortunately it's gopping outside which is where I need to go.

    No kids night? You and Mrs Seano get on the wodka and strip poker?!

    Yes, the little censored cute little chap went on a killing spree before Christmas: 5 Sparrows, 1 blue T.it and worst - a Jenny Wren.
    He now has a bright yellow collar and a 'Trixie' bell which is very loud. I keep him in at first light when I feed the birds and so far since instalment of the collar and curfew, no fatalities of the feathered kind. You can have him by the short n curlies because he loves his food and one rattle of the Dreamies bag brings him in instantly.
    I would like to think me feeding the birds, the hedges, the bird boxes and the habitat I provide far exceeds feline genocide.

    Vodka and naked darts. Electric dart board, quite good fun.

    Moaning,

      It’s been raining on and off all morning but currently stopped. I’ll have to do a bit of food shopping I guess.

      My new shiny bearings have just arrived for my Bianchi’s bottom bracket so I might fit them later or not. No rush as I don’t ride it outside this time of the year (mostly). If it stays in non-raining mode I might have a ride to a county pub I know and like, it will be a mudfest! The bar has a proper floor so that’s fine :)

    Afternoon. Was rugby this morning, good 52-0 win for the boys. Lunch, dropped the hound at the groomer, just about to buy wood to make a couple of doors for under the stairs. Also need to check the bike over before an EPIC ride tomorrow.

    Evening folks,
    At the old dear's doing a few odd jobs, well, having tea in-between doing odd jobs. I could have replied this morning but didn't want to surprise Piña too much. More pottering tomorrow.
    Hair of the dog time Seano?
  • tlw1tlw1 Posts: 21,225
    Pinno nailed it

    Walk hounds, reasonable run, few jobs, haircut and then collect MIL, just had a swim, now a couple of drinks at the club and then pub later
  • johngtijohngti Posts: 2,481
    Splashed out on a new circular saw. Wanted one for ages. Scared the dog with it 🤣

    I wasn't having a go. Cats is cats. We feed the birds, and a neighbour's cat lies in wait, so we open the door and let the dog chase the cat off, and laugh at the dog when it runs headlong into the fence while the cat escapes easily.

    One of our dogs has managed to bag a few birds. Most seem to have been fledglings that haven't been quick enough or not realised that flying too close to the ground is a bit dangerous. Although one victim was a dopey adult pigeon that didn't spot it had landed rather close to where junior hound was sitting.

    I can't think what my stupid mutt would do if it ever caught a bird/squirrel/cat. Not a lot I suspect.

    I suspect mines the same. Sits on a stool watching up the garden for squirrels and cats then launches after them. They're normally long gone by the time he arrives or teasing him from above. PS OH likes the Mutts portrait.

    Ooh, nice. I need to get a new one as I've got my old man's one which is rather past it's best, past being safe I think. Sparks and burning smell stopped me using it last time I tried 😂

    Bit classier than our 'portrait ' of the hounds.


    It was a photo shop job BTW, we didn't actually dress them up in that rubbish :smile:

    Ours just trotted around with it in his mouth feeling a bit full of himself, then sat there and guarded the corpse once he got bored with trotting around.

    I have a DeWalt circular saw. It's very good.
    Keep that thing straight or it can kick.
