    What's a Dentist! I'm a Brit :rofl::thumb: I couldn't do much yesterday but I managed to plant out some Japanese squash plants yesterday in between the heavy showers, The slugs are already having a field day eating my young plants :mad: I bought a roll of 1" wide adhesive copper tape to wrap around the top of the bottomless pot I planted them in. I'm hoping it will deter them. :dunno:

    I would have been willing to swap with you this morning mate! Everything they did hurt!

    I need a couple of filings and sone specialist work where a larynx biopsy procedure ripped 2 teeth out of my jaw. They are being held in my mouth by a dental cement ATM. The jaw needs reconstructing before the teeth can be dealt with. I refuse to lose any at this stage!

    Still want to see the dentist?

    Nah! mate I'm good :thumb: I lost a good portion of mine playing sports when I was big & dumb as a stump as a teenager, most of my teeth sleep in another room to me :D

    I forgot to mention I actually got a guitar out of the rack last night in the mancave for the first time in months.
    The Harley Benton thinline tele with a vox AC30 amplug & headphones, quite enjoyed it when the dexterity came back to the fingers :dude:

    Finally got my first dose of the Pfizer vaccine on Wednesday after waiting nearly two months for an appt. near me.

    Arm was a little sore near the spot of the injection but nothing serious. Felt like a bruise. Made me a little sleepy for a day or so but nothing more in the way of side effects. Dose #2 is booked for June 2nd.

    It'll feel good to be able to travel again and get back to see my 96 year old Dad. He just had a pacemaker installed so while I'm back for a visit I'll check out some living and work arrangements locally in anticipation of possibly moving back there for awhile. I'm beginning to think it's about time.

    I probably should be considering legal action against the ENT who was doing a straight forward biopsy as it’s already caused a lot of problems in my day to day life. I was hoping to ignore it but the dentist says bacteria will be eating away at the jaw while I'm ignoring it. Gonna involve quite a few trips to the Big Smoke to a specialist, one of a few who does this kind of work. It turned out that I had thrush on my larynx and I paid a big price to find that out!

    I hate dealing with lawyers though as they end up being the usual winners out of stuff like this.

    I gave the padlock to my garage a bit of TLC after the Winter months.

    Thats pretty good for an old lock! It it’s an old lock? It would be hard for anyone to get bolt cutters into cut the hasp on that lock! I buy locks like that these days because they are more secure.

    There's a bit of a story behind this lock, I bought it in the early 80's (82 I think) I saw a mate in the town car park & went over to say hello & his van was full of stuff he was selling, I said that's a nice heavy duty lock He said give us a tenner & it's yours with two keys.
    Months later I found out he'd been sacked for stealing whole van loads of stuff from the building site he worked at (he was a brickie), It was the lock off the on site 40' storage container :wow:

    t was another wash out yesterday so didn't do much except drive some trains :thumb:

    Nice background story on the old lock and wouldn't we all love to drive a train. :dude:

    I've ridden the Amtrak Zephyr from Denver back to Chicago a number of times and often wondered what it would be like to be in the captain's chair of a big locomotive doin' 80 mph.:hmm:

    Sick of being stuck inside all week with rain, we took ourselves up to the high country for lunch. There’s a timber town called Buchan about 50 minutes driving from here and they have a nice pub. We had just settled in when Gael knocked my pot of beer over and on my lap! Accident obviously but she grabbed a pile of napkins and started cleaning things up. I decided to do the front of my jeans myself as people were starting to look~

    I had the “house Burger with the lot” and Gael had “Cluck, Oink and Swim” which was grilled Chicken with Bacon and Prawns and a lovely seafood sauce.
    My burger was disappointing but there was a lot of it and I didn’t need much for tea. However we enjoyed out time out, talking and driving through beautiful countryside.
