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.

Don't fence me in.

Yesterday the plan of going to the lake was shelved and Pepe and I went to Ashton instead to the timber yard John had used a few weeks ago for a big job in Altrincham.
I was after those top wood strips angled on the top of fencing which seems to shed water off better than the flat ones that came with my fencing originally, The firm in Ashton make their fencing on site so I went to see if I could purchase these spares for my fence which was alright except for the tops that were getting a bit worn, they get all the weather don't they
I was abell to get 12 strips and a 3 internal down strips (In case they were needed) all for £20, so we loaded up and made our way to Ashton town centre were it was bacon sarnie time!
First time in Ashton
Don't leave him with me!

Spare a biscuit mate?

Some more of the bronze figures made another photo opportunity for me just outside the indoor market, I think people thought I was going to leave him there when I walked back to get him in focus, but soon started laughing when they realised what I was doing.
Then it was back home and whilst Pepe rested his weary legs I set too and fitted the new strips on the fence
 Just have to paint the tops as I've done the panels on this side before.
All done!, but as the better sighted can see there was a bit of rot on one of the panels at the top.
This is the one, but it was soon replaced with a piece of a spare panel the next door neighbour had in store, so just have to paint the panels I've not done yet, the repaired one is one of them! and then that's another job done. Getting all these jobs done now so in the better weather can get out more.

A bloke went to the doctor's for a check up. "You need to relax more" said the doctor.
"You need to get away from it all for a while, could you go abroad"
"Sure could" replied the patient "What's she like"

Boom Boom
