    Shurley says good can always be better. 😉
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

  • pinnopinno Posts: 42,520
    So glad the war is over.

    Now, when I were a lad...

    I have been knee deep in old Porker engine and gearbox swap plus all the whilst you're in there jobs. Which are seemingly endless. I keep finding them. Silly fukker.

    Yay, had our first take away since March :) . Persuaded Stressbag and Stropteen that we weren't going to die horribly if I went down the chippy. Boy, those fish, chips 'n' mushy peas tasted good, especially when washed down with cider B)

    Good excuse for a drive as well.

    Just over a mile via the most direct route, apparently :)

    I just persuaded them about a take away, they went for the fish n chips. Makes me proud.

    Fish n chips n petrol cost was still good vfm :)

    Evening Squares. Just d!ckin' about on t'web seeing as how got broadband up and running after 2 weeks of counting the Mb.

    Positively Med holiday evening temps, blue skies, fledgling birds sitting next to me looking a bit 'ok, got this far, now what?'. Might have to open a 2nd bottle, these balmy evenings can't last...

    Doing a local pootle with daughter #1 tomorrow, she's a nervous newbie so easy does it. Go for proper blast Sunday, early before it gets too 'kin hot again.

    EoFW - End of ****ing Week. Yay.

    Car battery recharged in a fun way and now making inroads into my cider stash :) Weekend's going to be good so may get on the bike for a change.

    V68 will teach me the way of the hammer over the weekend.

    I will also cook some very nice lamb rumps with pommes fondant and an onion sauce.

    Sunday I will grill short ribs at the boy's request (his birthday) Medium rare with roast potatoes and real gravy is his request.

    What?! It's salad season of Caesar, salade Jullienne, home made mayonnaises with for example, Tarragon and white wine vinegar to toss with Gem lettuce, Avocado, prawns and crispy cruton's. Quiche's and cold cooked chicken previously marinaded in Olive oil, smoked Paprika, tomato puree, balsamic vinegar and seasoned. Cured hams (preferably smoked), exquisite pickles and Smoked Applewood or Oak smoked cheddar, Port Salut, Pate and fresh baguettes, cream cheese and smoked Salmon Roulade's, sweet pickled beetroot, chives and spring onions...

    This is atrocious, unseasonal behaviour Hoppy. I'm very disappointed in you.

    Outdoor grilled meats? Unseasonal? Nay. I'll put some tomatoes near some good oil as well. Some salted almonds and fat green olives. You're right though, there's preparation going into the spuds.

    Also, I bow to nobody in my love of the ham.

    About the driving, the cider or the bike riding?

    I'm not too unfit just now, been doing a fair bit of running and a few weights. Legs might ache a bit when I pedal though.

    The Glastonbury weekend. Get on the iPlayer, because. Relive some previous viewings. (Never been dahn that Zummerzet in person.)

    So first choice is Dizzee Rascal. Think, xxxx that was so good, was 2010, xxxx me that was a decade ago. Times have so changed.

    Then Radiohead. 1997! 'Kin L. That's almost a quarter of a century ago. Jeez. The world was a more positive place then. I must be getting old.

    Drink!

    Quiet on the Western front.
    Maybe FZ just reacts, can't post anything original, so if no-one posts, he's fooked.

    Just sat down really. Quite busy for a Friday night. And doesn't feel like Summer.

    1 more week to go...

    Then up Norf. We're already Norf, though geographically, still in the south but nonetheless, we'll be Norf of Norf this time next week.

    Not too bad in the Western fringes. Loch Mairee - stunning, something magical about the place but...
    Went there in my '74 bay. Had to keep the oil candles burning all night and stuff socks in the air vents. There was a toilet block. You had to leg it there and pray. Clouds of them.

    As a highlander said to me once - "Aye, ye kill one and a thoosan' cum te the funeral".
