    My current flock. I've thinned it quite a bit over the last few months - from 20-knives down to 9-knives.

    Thanks pal :)

    I'm going to have to abandon my latest slingshot project, as one of the forks has developed a substantial crack :(

    Hope everyone is having a good Friday. The weather hasn't been too bad today, after a foggy start. I got lured into town to pick up a prescription, after receiving a text on my phone, but it turned out only 20% of my prescription had been filled o_O It was quieter than usual on the roads, and in the city centre, because of the supposed lockdown, but not really all that different. Another misty day is forecast for tomorrow, but I'll be heading out for a hike with my Hartshead Barlow ;) Wishing everyone a safe and happy weekend :) :thumbsup:

    Haha Jose very good.:thumbsup: I know it's not about that but apparently during the Cold War the Soviets had Spetsnaz sleeper cells in every Western European capital. If the Cold War had ever gone hot, we'd of all woken up to the news that all of Western Europe's leaders had a neat little hole between their eyes.
    I don't know if course the Russians still do that of course, but I hope they do. :thumbsup:

    That looks like a big job. :thumbsup:

    Your mate could of argued he is a hardware store. :thumbsup:

    No Diwali round us Jack so it's all about Guy Fawkes round here. :D:thumbsup:

    Remember, remember the fifth of November,
    Gunpowder treason and plot.
    We see no reason
    Why gunpowder treason
    Should ever be forgot!

    Guy Fawkes, guy, t'was his intent
    To blow up king and parliament.
    Three score barrels were laid below
    To prove old England's overthrow.

    By god's mercy he was catch'd
    With a darkened lantern and burning match.
    So, holler boys, holler boys, Let the bells ring.
    Holler boys, holler boys, God save the king.

    And what shall we do with him?
    Burn him!



    My walk yesterday.

    Stylish photo Chuck :thumbsup:

    How are you finding the pattern? :)

    Yes. It's a crazy system. Leeds City Council have closed all the outdoor stalls, apart from the fruit and veg stalls (and even they were originally told not to turn up). Nobody seems to know what's going on inside either. I passed through today, and I'd say three quarters of the stalls are closed, but one of those open is the last remaining hardware stall. I managed to get some chips, but had to eat them standing up :rolleyes:

    More fireworks round my way tonight, but I doubt many of the youngsters round here know much, if anything, about Guy Fawkes :rolleyes:

    I'm glad you were able to get out yesterday David, though it looks pretty damp. Nice atmospheric pics, and a great-looking pie with your Hartshead Barlow :) :thumbsup:

    Probably not, but they do round here. But isn't Mischief Night round about now?

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mischief_Night

    Yeah, it's completely arbitrary now. Everyone knows their making this up now. Did you see our so-called "scientific advisers" in the Select Committee hearing the other day? They got caught out and squirmed like a man with a diarrhea in a job interview. :D Then started blaming each other for this charade.:rolleyes:
    Circling the drain I think is what it's called. :rolleyes::D

    Good evening, Guardians, and happy Friday. I hope you all are keeping well - it's been a whirlwind week, I think I'll slow down for a drink and a smoke.

    I'd never heard of Mischief Night before I moved from South Yorkshire to West Yorkshire, and I remember looking at that Wikipedia page 10 years or so ago. It's changed an awful lots since then, fair amount of cobblers on there :rolleyes: The local Cricket Club had a great fireworks display tonight, must have cost a few bob. I've been sat out in my back garden, round a blazing fire, drinking beer and roasting sausages and marshmallows, and watching the fireworks of course :) :thumbsup:

    Hope you enjoyed chilling out with that Winter Ale Dylan :) :thumbsup:

    When I was about 5, my sister and I were opening our Christmas presents. We each got a Dalek soap in our stocking, but my sister told me it was chocolate, and that she'd just tasted hers o_O

    Having a change eh Bill :) :thumbsup:

    It been a gloomy day here, the mist never lifted all day, and by 2.00pm, it looked like it was going dark. I had a walk to an area I've not been to before, but the terrain was pretty bleak, with a lot of mud throughout. I'm absolutely beat, but I'll post some pics tomorrow. Hope everyone is having a good day :) :thumbsup:
