Today is 'Blue Monday' so why am I posting in the 'Happy Thread'? Go on then, I'll tell you. The Nurse at the Surgery telephoned me earlier to let me know the results of my PSA test from last week. The figure is 1.57!  :o.  I asked her if the decimal point was in the right place. She said it was and this figure is the lowest I have had since the PSA checks began something like 7 years ago.  :) . I have had a couple of readings that were above 20, so everybody at the Surgery - not to mention me - are rather pleased with this latest reading.  :).

On top of that, the case for Louisa's new phone arrived in the post, as did a parcel from 'Plaza Japan', so a good day. There is one sad point to make though, the NGS Hunslets have not yet arrived.  :(

Good news David! :thumbsup:  I remember when my PSA finally returned to near zero two years ago - I was c-ock-a-hoop, over the moon, and generally on cloud nine - so I know just how you feel.

Long may your future tests (I now get one a year) remain low and harmless.

Well this morning I had my 4th Covid vaccination which in my booster as the previous three were all primary shots. I got a call last Thursday from my GPs exactly three months after the third jab.

Thank you to the NHS for looking after me and all others

Shame I'm not a gambling man as I successfully predicted the teams heading into the Superbowl from the Championship games, but I might, just might, buy a lottery ticket for the first time in my life :)

I have a neighbour across the road who is a sort of professional handyman. He has a small trailer which he loads up with all the debris from his work, and as I passed it a couple of days ago while walking the dogs, I noticed some very useful lengths of batten. So I knocked on his door this morning and am now the lucky owner of probably enough 2x1 to make the baseboard frames of my new, grandson-friendly layout! He says to just help myself to anything useful, so I'm hoping for some gash plywood...  ;)

Saves him a trip to the tip, saves me some money, and saves the planet - wins all round. Upcycling rules!

Cheers,

Chris

shock - horror  :o what am I doing on the happy thread :hmmm:

well, I'm here to say I am happy that the guys I wargame with have taken the unanimous decision that this weekend's game should be changed.

it was intended to be a cold war game where the warpac forces stormed through the Fulda Gap to fight the defending NATO forces.

with the recent event's, and I am for once not going to make my views known at full volume, in Ukraine, I got a phone call thursday evening advising that we were changing the planned game for this weekend  to a winter of '79 game where my Free Welsh forces will now be facing the Emergency Government's forces trying to re-establish control of the principality.

after so many months of not being able to get together, we decided to still game this weekend, but to change the scenario.

and for that, I applaud all of my fellow members of our group.

whether I will feel that way on monday, when the eastern borders of Free Wales are littered with the hulks of my elite armoured units I am not so sure, but at least there will not be a red star on the table this weekend.

 :jawdropping:

I just received my notification from DVLA that I need to renew my driving licence before my 76th birthday in May.

so why is that such a surprise ?

IT'S FREE  :o

filled in the form online, find I have to return my existing licence to them, but not the same address as the prepaid envelope included with the form  >:(

so not exactly free, cause RM will charge me an arm and a leg to send it back.

they ask me to certify my medical and eye conditions, why couldn't I just certify that I had destroyed / shredded my old licence ?

Ah - a lovely sunny dry day. The bliss of the open road on my Kawasaki 650 Versys.
Sound of loud record scratching - hang on, what's this I'm chewing? Cripes - it's th'air!
The farmers have been muck spreading and the sun has baked it off to a consistency that's palpably chewable :sick2: (not nice being sick into a full face helmet :no:)
This might have been in the Unhappy Thread except, of course, the farmers do what they have to do to put food on our table.
The ride was great but a very bad atmosphere :poop:
It did make folks in cars smile as I waved my hand behind my own backside as I overtook them :D

Hmmm. I'd like to refer you to my previous post.

I've been sailing in Blue Moon, the boat I built in 1996-1999,
Not everything went well, some more modifications are required, but these can be done as I go along..
Only the third time sailing her in all that time.
