Thanks for the info Paul. The cowboy block pavier is listed in the local Check a Trade.
Mrs D is happy with our tatty concrete drive and our weed ridden lawn next to it.

We have an old red tarmac drive - no problems in identifying where Henry has been stood when I take him off the drive Smile

After the replacement rear diff has been fitted on 19th there should be more oil in it than on the drive so I'll put cat litter on the drive and hopefully clean up the oil.

I think of our oil-stained concrete drive as a diagnostic tool.

I used to be a tool magpie but a little while ago I had a clear out and sold a load of tools at a local auction. I've still got lots left including a Hilka socket set I bought in the 1970's. It's got AF, metric and Whitworth sockets.

Have had some interest in the 110, currently up for sale on F*c*b**k. Still raining down here in South Wales so no real chance to tidy her up.

It's raining here but not very hard. The dogs insisted on taking me to the pub where I am now. I've seen your 110 John so I know any buyer will get a good 'un.

I wonder how these heaps of pathetic electric junk will cope with the wet conditions now being experienced. I know I can drive my Land Rover carefully through standing water so long as I assess the depth. Electricity and water don't mix.

A long day in the rain at the strange ballgame. Cheltenham vs Swindon. Each scored in extra time resulting in a draw. And it was very cold too. But off tomorrow. Smile

Have a rest Rich - grab a cuppa, put your feet up, and count your many spanners - better than counting sheep to get some kip.
