I saw a nice tidy Series 3 on my way home from work, a grey SWB hardtop. I was in the golf so didn’t wave. I must use the 90 again, I’m getting withdrawal symptoms! Rolling Eyes

I've nearly finished decanting a 25 litre drum of Morris' classic car 20/50 into manageable containers. It was very awkward to pour the oil direct from the drum so I used an oil gun to transfer the first 20 litres into 5 litre containers. I was then able to pour oil into 3 one litre containers so only 2 to go.
The dog was in the front garden and he barked at a woman passing with a dog. She had a go so I said he's allowed to bark on his property.She got narky so I let rip.

I don't believe it! (as Victor Meldrew would have said) That's one of a dog's official duties - to warn you of the approach of strangers. Some owners nowadays don't seem to know even what a dog is - a couple of doors down from us there's a poor little pooch has an entire wardrobe of clothes for different weather conditions it gets walked in - it even has trousers! (so presumably it must also have nappies!! Shocked ) - it's clearly a child substitute - and it's animal cruelty Mad

There's a couple a few doors away who have a couple of Manchester Terriers. We call them "Matchstick Dogs" as they're the splitting image of the dogs in our Lowry (print.)
I've just seen an advert on television that uses the song "Ça plane pour moi" by Plastic Bertrand. Now who remembers him?
Mrs. D has managed to book a routine eye test week after next but no luck with a hairdresser yet.

You're the master of obscure awful 'songs', Alan. What would I do without YouTube? (be spared them!)

I try my best Geoff. Here's a better one. "Classical Gas" by Mason Williams.

I'm sure there's a quiet padded corner of the forum we can put you Alan. Very Happy

I had a boxer dog when I was younger and he got attacked by a chow (very strange fluffy dog) one morning after it escaped from its garden when we were out for a walk. The owner ran after it and dragged it back inside. A few weeks later, my boxer escaped from its garden and did the same to the chow. My dad dragged him back in. No injuries to either dog, it was just one of those things. The next day, the Police turned up on our doorstep saying we had a dangerous dog! My dad sent them packing after telling them a few home truths about what really happened.

I can’t believe the woman had the neck to give you grief Alan. Glad you told her how it was. Smile

I've been trying to stop water leaking into the Land Rover. Only a few drops now when the driver's door is opened but there was one on the passenger side I couldn't trace so in yesterday's rain I tried and found the source. It was coming from the bottom corner of the windscreen. I rang Ian and he said to bring it down so I did this morning. He tightened the windscreen clamp and said to try it. I then took the dog for a walk on the way home.
Nearly home and there was a heavy shower. No sign of a leak so far.
Strimming was planned for this afternoon but the rain put a stop to it.
The club snoods/face masks arrived today. Mrs. D tried hers on and found it far more comfortable and practical than the disgusting blue rubbish that seems to be everywhere. The club ones make it easier to breathe and are washable.
