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.

More chilling out

Whilst at John's for Sunday dinner this last week, took this video of his garden railway shunter going the rounds of the garden



Nice little mover isn't it, didn't put any music to it as I thought the train noise was al-right, and the plane going overhead added a bit of noise as well!

Yesterday it was off to Etherow again, though this  time it was via Marple to call at Offerton Sand and Gravel Co to buy some chippings for the garden at home which I'm going to slightly re-model when I get round to it , but as in all modelling you have to have the stuff in hand for when you start the job.

At the lake it was all the guys with their "J" class yachts, they had 12 races in total and I was there to natter to them and distract them, well you have to have a handicap if you are as good as some of them don't you!
Missed Bob again, perhaps he doesn't want his ear bending either hey.

Then it was home to unmask the Narra Boat after all the painting and masking and painting a different colour again, and here is the finished thing.

Next job is to paint the window frames aluminium and the white frame between the green and Red will be Yellow.
Thought the picture on the wheelie bins here would give you a better idea of the size of the boat


As you can see in the last picture all the holes were drilled prior to painting, so now just have to ream the paint out to attach the top deck clutter, ie rails, flower tubs, air vents and lights.
John thought my picture of the Mandarin male duck in the previous blog was quite good so I've brought it a bit closer to-day!

Nice isn't he, Both him and John I mean!
Well that's all for now

 "Look at that dog with one eye"
The other blonde covers one eye and says 
"Where?"
