Just tell her that it’s Rory’s and he will be coming to collect it soon. After 12 months she will give up asking when.

The story fits past events and the crane is the right vintage. Totaly plausible 😀😀😀

the Jimnys were always known as being virtually invincible off road .... some nice little vehicles there
Anyone ever seen the DAMD bodykits for Jimnys? Could be fun project,but a bit pricey...

How could you not have seen it has stood at the back,
ok half hidden behind everything else but been there all along,
just haven't had much use for it yet,
but just wait until I build the new workshop

do it as well as you can,but learn to do it better
between the can you just s yesterday (as it was a nice day and Pam was determined to be out), had a bit of a tidy up on me patch and in me boxes --
Little Fobco Star bench drill, I went through a while ago and sorted, has been sat on the floor, making a nuisance of itself for months ... was gonna flog it, but for what it owes me (not a lot) thought sod it, mount it and use it ... be handy if only to keep a pilot in, save swapping in the Meddings all the time .. so
found a suitable bit of ply and lopped it down to size to re-enforce the top of a cabinet, pulled the head off the column (after deciding there was no way I was gonna pick it all up into place):oops::oops: and having drilled the ply and cab top, put the column and base up and bolted it down.
that was heavy enough as it was ... age really DOES NOT come alone :( ... 's why it got split .. would've done it in a lump, not so long ago :rolleyes: :mad:
Getting the head back on top of the column was .... er .... interesting !! :rolleyes::LOL:

Might see if I can find it a push button set up in me misc. leccy bits boxes .. pretty sure I have one in there somewhere :unsure:

and then burnt four drum-fulls of garden rubbish after barrowing it to me drum :rolleyes: ... once I'd put the Husqy hedge cutter through the enormous pile Pam'd created ... easiest way of making it fit in the barrows/burning drum ... burnt well too :giggle:(y)

neither of us have 'net on our phones LL ..
Pam won't have a smart phone ..
still runs an old Nokia button jobbie ....
according to a net search for area coverage, there is no 4G cover here, :mad: but all the previous Openreach engineers (13 of 'em the last time we had 'proper' issues) who've been here have 4G on their pads they use to communicate with the exchange and get all their tech info. from ...
they all say 4g is excellent here. .....
will be having a word with the guys who installed the 'nice' neighbour's 4G internet system, as being without for 5 days really isn't acceptable these days.
As said, had to go into my bank's branch this morning, just to shuffle some funds about 🤬
met the Openreach engineer on the side of the road coming back and asked him if he was dealing with ours? ...
he had a shredded length of cable in his hand when he said yes, after asking for our address.
Bloody hedge carpenters been at it again🤬:mad:

Only upside is I've done a load of housekeeping on the 'puters and HD,s and all are now up to date and everything is backed up twice :):cool:(y)

forgot the wifi bit .... running a USB dongle ATM .. was on ethernet cable ... router is next to the W10 Dell ... for some reason the ethernet cable/connection decided it wasn't working anymore .. tried a new one and still no joy, so assume the ethernet card has gone south in the Dell :mad:
have an identical Dell that gave me so much trouble I replaced it ..
@Cyberprog reckoned it had a motherboard issue :cry:
could rob the card out of there, but not sure if it would need to be 'configured' somehow???
REALLY wish I knew more about 'popping the bonnet' on 'puters and tinkering about :(:(

not been with BT for years ... binned 'em off and went to SSE years ago - they however then sold off their BB op. to Ovo, who in turn have flogged it off to Origin BB .... as said .. seriously considering going fully wireless, like our 'nice' neighbours did (who get 32mb) ... all it cost them was a SIM and their monthlies

the neighbours used a guy called countryside connections from Monmouth .. apparently there were all sorts of grants available - he did all the paperwork and as said all it cost them was a SIM and monthly sub. :cool: .. they're very pleased with theirs as James works from home a lot (he's a TV prog. producer and has done quite a few well known prog.s - Bruce Parry in the arctic - and several others I can't recall the name of)
have had an email to his bloke in my drafts for ages - must do summat about it ... was hard work being 'cut off' for 4ish days

would be interesting to have a chat with your chap too (y)
