    Thanks.
    Your welcome. :thumbsup:

    Cheers GT. I wished I looked good doing nothing to. :D

    Now there what we'd call a 'sieve'.

    Oh I'm going to have to watch that. :D:thumbsup:


    Yip Barrett there about 7 miles from where I live. I'm supporting them as they don't have a large contract with any supermarket like some do and the pubs/bars here are still shut.:mad: A few breweries have already stopped brewing (so far just temporarily) but 4T's are one of the few in my area who are still open, and I may add can't keep up with demand. :D
    Oh I love my stouts, porters and milds. :thumbsup:


    Great. We'll look forward to some before and after shots when you get it back. :thumbsup:

    Was this the one?

    I think there's been several old mills that are run on an adhoc/historical basis that stepped up and started running full time.

    Yip that's right there still going. I should really get my mate to grab me some flour one Saturday.

    And during it's refit several years ago. It is actually a five-sail windmill.

    Thanks Ron :) :D That background illustration originally appeared in the 1990 journal of the British Tools & Trades Historical Society, and depicts farrier and blacksmith Rupert Timms making a gate in the 1940's. The journal entry includes photos of the wrought iron gates Mr Timms is making in the engraving, which apparently won him an award at the first post-WW2 Royal Agricultural Society show in 1947 :thumbsup:

    That bacon looks good Ron :) As does your Lambsfoot ;) :thumbsup:

    Now that you remind me, I've heard them called that.
    It's very bad.

    They‘re very sweet! :eek: :D (Pretty good, though! :))

    I really enjoyed the Stingo, I’ll definitely buy that one again. :thumbsup: Then again, I don’t think there was a disappointing beer in that whole bunch that I got!

    The cottonwood hasn’t been as bad this year (at least, not yet). Here’s a picture I took last year around this time. :D

    That’s a fine looking breakfast, Ron! Your bacon looks nice and crisp (the best way to eat it!). ;)

    Sorry about the pubs, David, but I’m glad you’re at least able to support a local brewery! :thumbsup: They opened restaurants and bars here on June 1st, but they’re only allowed to utilize outdoor seating areas, which obviously excludes a lot of places.

    A lot of smaller microbreweries here only sell their beer in their own taprooms. I imagine things have been tough on them, although they’ve at least been able to do to-go orders in growlers.

    Edit: Looking at all the "goose" pics on my phone, looks like these two were taken at different times.
    The first at 6:56 pm and the second at 7:40 pm .... I guess I am reaaaally slow to to pull my lamb out of my pocket LOL

    Thanks for the info on Mr. Timms Jack. For some reason I find the forging and blacksmithing type work very interesting. :cool: Especially the blade smith aspect of it. Pam keeps threating to let me set up a forge! :rolleyes: One of these days I may humor her and just do it! ;)

    Thanks Barrett. I didn't show the big bowl of cheese grits to the side of the plate! ;) I didn't want to make everyone too jealous. :rolleyes: I fixed that bacon in the microwave and we do like it crisp! :D

    Cheese grits definitely would’ve made me jealous! :D Much like Duke’s Mayonnaise, grits aren’t always easy to find in grocery stores here. In fact, I haven’t ‘em in a while; might have to fix that soon. ;) :thumbsup:

    I did stock up on a few of these recently. :D
