Joy!

As I write this the rain is bucketing down and we have thunder and lightning. Drought for us is a frequent reality (like this year so far) so rain is 100% welcome. The more the better. By lunchtime we had 44 mm - Bureau of Meteorology prediction was 25-40 mm. All too often they predict 20 mm and we get 5 mm.

In an interlude between storms this morning, I too the dog for a walk. She is a kelpie, a sheep dog, who tries to round up everything moving faster than walking pace - joggers, cyclists, motorised wheelchairs, cars. Consequently, due to the consternation of those being rounded up, she is almost always on a lead, but this morning I'm thinking that there should be no joggers about in what was at the time a light rain. So, I let her go. Almost immediately a jogger rounds the corner. Tilly does not damage the rounded up goods, but she can be a bit confronting if the rounded-upee is not used to dog behaviour. No harm done this morning.

So just how many of these “joggers, cyclists, motorised wheelchairs“ do you now have in the pen in your back yard, Ian? :hmmm:

 :D

Glad to hear that for today at least the drought is being kept at bay. :thumbsup:

I'm happy because I found the bogie retaining screw from my Dapol Schools loco that I lost a few weeks ago.

I used a fridge magnet as a "fishing rod", pushing it around the track over the "4 foot".

It worked a treat - only took a few seconds to"hook" the screw.

Best regards,


Joe
