It wasn't possible to get our Covid booster's locally, so we had a nice trip out today for our Moderna stabbing at a Scout hut situated in a market town to the South. No doubt the venue had been selected because of the very generously sized car park, however not being local made it a little tricky to find without any road signs pointing the way. The sat nav lady was having a fun time, taking us on detours down 3 dead end roads before finding the right one.

Mostly > 6,000 miles again! (y)
If your trip recorder has a metric option, I would be tempted to go for the same number in km next year. :)

A delivery from Amazon today my wife said is a hint to my Christmas present machine. ????????

Don, I initially thought your present will be a


then realised your wife said "machine", so it's more likely to be ...


Either way it's an awful lot of ammunition - you must really be looking forward to Christmas this year !

Final pics of the barn for those interested. I just need to do some earthworks and gravel and shift that post which means laying a new irrigation pipe. Then I will lay lawn in front of the sliding door and it should look pretty good. Each bay is 5 meters wide so I can open car doors without banging into anything. Already moved the old fridge and pantry over from the house so we can set up a kitchenette etc.
Now if we could just get an electrician to show up I could remove the extension cord that I have to use to operate the doors at present.
My choice of colours. I wanted something different and modern. Wife wasn't happy but the colour has grown on her. The builder said he really liked it as he was sick of doing green sheds. LOL

Good evening! 72˚F, partly cloudy skies.

Drew, yes I still like my Ranger and not interested in the dealers offer to buy it back for a "very good price" because they are so short on inventory. The extras are really nice and were not offered in 2019 on some of the other mid size trucks - blind spot detection, automatic high beams, trailer mode, adaptive cruise control. lane assist, automatic windshield wiper system, heated seats, etc . . .

Eric, my wife assured me "the machine" will not shoot or project the beans, it will not sprout or grow the beans, it will not cook the beans, or burn the beans for heat. It's an unsolved mystery till Dec 24th. There is a clue in the strange type of bean (adzuki) but I just can't figure it out.

Got the truck's flat tire fixed with no complications. Wngsprd, there was just barely enough thread so a new tire was not required, but a new set of tires will have to be bought before I get it inspected next Fall.

Alien, that garage/shop turned out really nice.

Mostly, yea 6K miles. How many of those miles did you put on the Peugeot.

The crew that worked on Jim's last big project, the outdoor lift to get from his driveway to the living area of his multi level house were Harvey, Mike, Bird and myself. It was an honor to help him in his time of need.

David, a blizzard in Hawaii, true or clickbait?

34 after a cool breezy day.
I wore shorts to keep the weight of the jeans off my shin wound, but after a shower and bandage change, I put on jeans and we went to a Chinese restaurant with friends.
Surgery went well, it took less time than it did to numb the areas. The leg spot is deeper but not as big around as the arm. I had some pain in my leg for about 18 hours, but I slept well. I spent a lot of the day in my recliner with my feet up.
Both areas were clean and normal appearing and while a bit sore, no real pain. So now just waiting on the lab report.
I did a lot of armchair Christmas shopping and got it all done except one gift certificate. Of course I’m not finished with my wife’s yet, but then I never am.

Have a good evening.
