Nothing exciting to report. Sporting activity this morning then a puppy walk round the nearby copse and then the older dog and I walked to the pub. The Otter was settling so it wasn't ready so it was Doombar instead.
The heated windscreens are now working but the forward motion of the Land Rover cools them down. Apart from the ex MOD 110 N/A diesel soft top at the sporting venue no other Land Rovers seen.
That's my boring day.

Forgot to mention, I did see an ex-MoD Wolf 110 on the M4 on the journey home. I was able to slow down and have a good look as imovertook it as Mrs K was catching some zzz’s... Very Happy

Other men, Rich, look furtively at other women while they think their wives aren't looking Rolling Eyes Laughing

Geoff, I can only just afford one woman, let alone looking at another! Shocked But then, looking at another Defender longingly would get me a similar amount of grief... Rolling Eyes

You don't have to pay if you only look - it's called window shopping. (This being a Landy forum and family-friendly at that, I am of course talking about Land Rovers there)

Asked what I would do if I came up on Ernie, I once answered I would buy another Land Rover. Believe me, it ruined my whole day. And that was when I only had one! Shocked Sad Rolling Eyes

I window-shop land rovers regularly Geoff. Very Happy They don’t complain if you get caught window-shopping another model. Smile Wink

It was a very small digital instruction manual if it was! Surprised

The puppy had his first ride with the other dog in the back of the Land Rover to a walk in the country. The driver of a Defender SWB Station Wagon waved so I waved back. That was the only Land Rover I saw. I did see a T type MG this morning but it could have been pre or post WW2 as MG carried on with that archaic design well into the 1950's. The Jowett Jupiter was a far superior car.

My dad has just got another Boxer puppy and she’s had her first walk today after her jabs. Very Happy I’d love another boxer myself but with little knappster and work commitments, it’s not the right time for one. My old one used to love a ride in my disco. Very Happy Landies and dogs go hand in hand! Very Happy

I was two hours late home from work due to an online management forum running over. When I got home, I got interrogated by Mrs K about my latest purchase which arrived yesterday, together with questions about when would I get time to fit it. Chance would be a fine thing, I thought! Rolling Eyes It’s been relegated to the garage, where all the other parts are also awaiting fitting. Rolling Eyes Smile

Rich - it sounds like you have a garage collection the size of mine. Everything arrives promptly, but never seems to get as far as Henry. The wife sees to that Sad
