    Thanks Charlie :) :thumbsup:

    You couldn't make it up could you?! Here brother had told her some other ridiculous cargo story, but I forget the details now :rolleyes: I hope he's OK David, the nature of that job has sure changed a lot since I was a kid, when it was about the next best thing to being a space-pilot :rolleyes: Yeah, I've said about 7 lbs so far, and I reckon I'll get at least as much again, maybe twice that. I'm fast running out of places to put them, might have to look into @cudgee 's jam-making idea afterall :D :thumbsup:

    Hope everyone is having a good Friday :) The combination of the hot weather, and my bit of field-work, has worn me out :D I'm going out for a hike tomorrow, so I'm going to get most of my stuff together, as per usual, and get a shave before I fall asleep :rolleyes: Maybe get a beer before bed-time if I manage to stay awake ;) I'm probably not going to get chance to post much in the morning, but I hope everyone has a great weekend :) I'll be back with my Hartshead Barlow :thumbsup:

    Oh my brother has some great stories about aerial cargo. From gold bullion going missing mid-flight to flying freshly minted German Deutsche Marks about the EU.... :oops::cool:
    Enjoy your walk. :thumbsup:

    Mate i hope you're right about getting back to some sort of normality, but the truth is no one knows. I have a family member who has been dealing with the virus in one of our major hospitals, after speaking to him and listening to sensible people, they just do not know how or where this virus will end up. Everyone, from media experts to so called medical experts has an opinion, but the fact of the matter is, it is only their opinion. No one knows my friend, and we all have to deal with it the best we can, so you and all your family and friends, take care, look after yourself and stay as safe as you can. Have a good weekend mate, and remember, oil the joints.:)

    Morning all, we went into strict stage 4 lockdown 2 days ago, we have had problems with abattoirs having high covid infection rates and with the ensuing panic buying meat is completely stripped from supermarket shelves. I buy my meat from a young bloke who owns my local butcher, i have been a customer for years and he looks after me. Called in this morning, he had plenty of meat, and had just made a fresh batch of sausages, and just had a delivery of eggs, which are also in short supply, we have had a case of reported bird flu at a chicken farm, so you can imagine the panic buying that has caused. So armed with fresh snags, eggs i stopped at my Cambodian girls bakery and bought some fresh rolls, this is the result, a good old fashioned "Yorky" sausage, fried potato, egg and worcestershire sauce "butty". Just waiting for the kettle to boil to wash it down with a cup of tea. And before you ask, YES, it tasted as good as it looked. Have a good weekend everyone.

    Agreed about Charlies Lamb foot being a great achievement, the Hartshead Barlows I have been seeing are an equally astounding success! :thumbsup: Kudos and salutations on that run Jack, they look amazing...I'll work on getting some pics of my humble lambs for your thread :)

    Very sorry to hear about the lockdown mate, hope it can be lifted again soon :thumbsup: Glad to hear you're well stocked up and eating well :) :thumbsup:

    Great pics Josh :) It's been a while since I last saw a hundred dollar bill, how long have they had the gold? I used to carry them when I travelled a lot in the late 70's and early 80's. Our highest denomination note at the time was only £20, so by carrying USD I could carry a lot more cash :thumbsup:

    Thanks a lot Duane :) :thumbsup:

    Good Morning Guardians! Have a great day :) :thumbsup:

    Sorry to hear about your lockdown problems my friend! It’s great you’re stocked up and eating well! It pays to have friends and most small local owned businesses remember their loyal customers during times like these! That’s not something you get with the big chain stores! :thumbsdown: Stay safe and well! :)

    I’m going to stay inside and hopefully cool today. It’s going to be hovering around 95F here and that’s more than this ole man wants to deal with! :rolleyes: I’ve got my Saturday Stag covered and my Ashley’s Choice decided to show his pile side this morning! ;) Y’all stay safe out there wherever you’re at! :) :thumbsup:

    Great pics gents :) :thumbsup:

    Turned out to be a pretty hot day here today too :) Your AC is looking good Ron :cool: Bottoms up :thumbsup:

    Had a really nice day today :) A good walk in glorious weather, along a route I've not walked before, culminating in a pint at an old village pub, then home for beer and burgers, blackberry crumble 'n' custard, and some Bowmore :) Hope everyone has had an equally nice Saturday :thumbsup:
