    Far more piccies available of MERT’s record boat .
    Was hoping to take half a dozen concepts to HAVASU , but its looking more and more unlikely due to the travel restrictions we have over here .
    yes i have had the two PFIZER jabs and am due the third any time soon , but im still not able to make the trip as yet . HAVENT given up hope completely but as of today its looking highly unlikely.
    I think there is a thread on BRF that Greg posted of his restore of the boat, trying to find it.

    New patio furniture was delivered 8-00 pm yesterday—— good time to buy — big discounts available — nobody wants stock left over the winter . Cash needed for seasonal goods and storage space is expensive .——-despite my best efforts — damned seats still cost more than i wanted to pay .
    by the way —- there is still one version of „“THE MAN CALLED MERT „“ available . PM me and I’ll quote a price to all interested parties .—-

    Don‘t look much for two days work does it ?—-but I’m on the move again —haven‘t worked out the „“ergonomics“ yet , but i got an idea as Michael Caine once said in „“THE ITALIAN JOB“ !!!!!!!!!!
    Motor is all aluminium with a passable five blade brass prop i picked up for a fiver at Thursday‘s car boot sale .
    would be a lot easier if i just made the whole thing out of timber —- but i don‘t do easy — why do it easy when you can make it so difficult without really trying ??????
    have some clear time for the next few days . Believe it or not thats a rare thing for me . I dont do anything —HAVENT got a job —- nearly 90 years old —how the hell can i be so BUSY ???????
    F‘rinstance —- Thursday—- car boot with daughter BOO from 8-00 am —- after that the tomato farm picking up 20 lbs of siscillian finest giants . Lunch at LA CAMPAGNIA in Arundel. Back home for four which leaves me just an hour in the shop.
    FRIDAY—— four hours in the shop, then off to Sams for the afternoon ——my sisters wedding anniversary so its big eats and buckets of champagne ——- Snow crab—-King Prawns and fillet steak on the beach bar-b-que . Home by ten shattered .
    Saturday— car boot and scrapyard . Just an hour in the shop and then off to Boo and Jeffs for Sunday lunch—- back home for four —— just another hour in the shop .
    Here i am in bed —- 7-00 am Sunday morning——- i do have the morning to myself —after my eggs benedict and the Sunday crossword .
    Just dont have the time to grow old gracefully ?????????

    Wow!!!!!!!! Today i ate bear —-best fillet —- nailed a couple of insurmountable problems - Garbrechts KARELSON is splendiferous —— looks more like the real thing than the original !!!!! That’s just me being mr Modesto. Well worth the money PILGRIM—- WHATEVER I CHARGE YOU .
    Mind you , this is version four plus two binliners—- knew i would eventually nail the damn thing —- i always do. !!!!!!! Might be because its a „:“RUDE“ .

    Know when you remember your old teachers sayings —?????
    WILLIAM ROCHESTER HASWELL was principal at Halifax Tech— always told me WILSON-YOU CAN DO BETTER THAN THAT !!!!!! —it‘s haunted me all my life .
    one of the reasons almost every concept i do, winds up as three of the buggers .
    GOOD—VERY GOOD AND EXCELLENT—— the rest i chuck in the bin !!!!!
    well pleased with the V8 racing RUDE . Think PILGRIM might like it too.
    man wants it red—so red it will be — other two will be polished wood —polished alloy and red of course !

    DID GET THE FIRST COAT OF RED ON THE TIMBERWORK.
    . I quite often use capitals without really trying . I cannot look at the screen and dab the keys without looking at them —- i have to see what i thump— same as always .
    Have just two and half boats on the go at once this time —- hoping one of them comes out half tidy .

    NEWSPAPER HEADLINES THIS MORNING WERE —- FEMALE BANK OPERATIVE AWARDED THOUSANDS BECAUSE HER MANAGER CALLED HER „“A BIRD“—
    English judge ruled that it was immoral and derogatory to refer to a female as „“a bird“. Excuse me !!!! That is not a derogatory remark—— thats a compliment.
    The female genders cannot be called —DOLLS—CHICKS—HONEYS — has the world finally gone totally bonkers .
    building site workers are now banned from wolf-whistling !!!!!!!! I cannot think of a better way of complimenting a bird with shapely legs or a great pair of knockers , than a wolf whistle . I’m guilty of that brazen and now illegal act—- been doing it since i was fourteen!!!!
    A few years back — i was walking with my wife past a building site —- now she wore a 36 double D bra - We got wolf whistled , so i dropped my pants and flashed them a bare arse —- i got a cacophony of wolf whistles . Still laugh today about it .
    Wasn’t there once a musical called ‚„“GUYS AND DOLLS“. ——-YES THERE WAS — BUT THAT WAS A LIFETIME AGO WHEN WE HAD LOTS OF COMMON SENSE .
