Welcome to my new Blog



Welcome to my Blog.
My Blog is mostly about my hobbies, ie Model boats,Cross Stitch, Gardening, Days out and about and Photography with pictures taken at and around our Model Boat club at Etherow Country Park, where I can be found quite a few days a week on the landing stage, you might recognize the hat and the dog rather than me. My models and other hobbies can be found in the tabs at the top above the header picture.
There will also be entries of days out with my long haired Chihuahua "Pepe", weather permitting of course.

Velda still in hospital!

I can't believe its been a week since I last blogged, still I do have a lot on my mind at the moment , so please forgive me for the absence of news.
Velda after numerous tests, has been transferred ON PAPER to the Acute Medical ward, I'm told as soon as a bed becomes availabel they will move her. 
I expressed my concern that I hoped it wouldn't be a case of   "out of sight out of mind" and was assured that wouldn't be the case, in fact there have been more doctors to see her since her Paper transfer than before!
It  is still a case of waiting for test results to come though, but luckily the ones though have been good so that's the reason for the transfer to Medical ward, (eventually). 
Not been in the mood for modelling lately but the other day I was walking Pepe and he stopped and picked something up, I was just ready to stamp on his neck for him to drop it (Only kidding, put that phone to the RSPCA down) when I saw what it was 

One of those wall plugs for cavity walls!

This scratch building must be rubbing off on Pepe, because I'd been looking for something to make a TV aerial for the boat and there it was!
Shaved off some of the lugs, cut it down a bit and here is the finished thing

Bit of filler round the bottom and a lick of paint to finish off, 


Whilst in the scrap box, found a nice little handle for the tiller arm, only needs painting and that's another job done, just need a tiller arm brass ornament now where the tiller arm splits for storage when not on use.
Keep looking Pepe!

The smart husband thinks twice before saying nothing.

Every married man knows that the most perfect husband in the world belongs to the woman next door!

The first time Ethel saw her husband he was outside a junk shop picking his teeth.
Then he went in and bought them.

Fred described the bump on his head as a glancing blow.
"The wife caught me glancing at a blonde" he said.

That's all folks
