This morning I was up and bouncing around at daft o’clock. Did a bit of blogging, had breakfast, went for a shower then it was out for a walk. There was not a breath of wind but it was minus the Lord knows what. We wandered down the Firth of Forth. There are purportedly seals, Eider Ducks, and every possible variety of wader. I saw a couple of Common Gulls and three Oyster Catchers.
I didn’t take Bertha. I thought I’d do a reconnaissance before inducing a hernia…..Glad I chose wisely.
As dawn broke and the sun rose we encountered lots of dogs and dog walkers. My two had a wonderful time. I lost one to a lady with three dogs. Discrimination has Molly. The lady was a film star even in boots, baggy trousers, duvet jacket and a really daft woolly hat. I fell head over heels in lust. We wandered her way for a while and I asked very politely if she fancied a pie and pint come lunchtime. She said it sounded a wonderful idea but she doubted her husband would concur. I did feel that I wasn’t thinking of including him in the venture but was discrete enough not to voice my thoughts. A magical lass I could have walked all day with her and in my dreams, spent all night. My eyes have always been bigger than my…….never mind…..I’m talking love not lust.
Back to my humdrum existence. We got back to the van, dumped the dogs inside and ran it up onto the ramps. Fitted the sleeve purchased yesterday and sealed it with Room Temperature Vulcanising stuff (Thanks Trevor). Silicon Shower Sealant it’s known as to we mere mortals, Then wrapped it in a Gun Gum bandage that I got from Halfords yesterday. I needed some Jubilee clips so thought a bit of exhaust bandage wouldn’t go amiss. Belt and braces! The truck is now whisper quiet.
Only two pictures from today……………………………….
This building is wonderful. It only needs a flying buttress or two and it would include the majority of architectural styles. It’s so awful that it becomes perfect. I have just realised that this building was shot on the tilt. I am having trouble with the new gear. A similar problem that the architect that designed this had. Too many choices.
It’s only noon. Time for a siesta.
Have a great weekend. We are moving on tomorrow.
