HERSELF

Posted by Terry Smith on April 21, 2019 at 8:05 AM Comments comments (0)

Herself took off to Pomgolia for a couple of months. She went especially to see the Staffordshire Bull Terriers at Crufts. Unfortunately she was so disappointed with the standard of Staffies at the show that she went and watched at the Soft Coated Wheatens instead. I thought they were biscuits.

I don't know what the big deal is with house-keeping. I slept on my side of the bed until the sheets were due t...

TOILET FACILITIES

.

Our toilet is almost ready to be re-commissioned. Mark kindly did our digging for us. We figured that the hole was deep enough when some Chinese guy at the bottom of the hole started complaining that the water was draining out of his rice paddy.

.

We might ask The Toad to cut the ribbon at our AGM.

THE ECOLOGY OF PARIS CREEK

The bio-diversity of Paris Creek has been compromised by the introduction of an invasive species - Cyprinus Carpio. This beast is more commonly known as the European Carp.

RACING 05 JAN 2019

Our first A Class day of the year and we got what we really didn't need. No BBQ. We were unsure of how many would turn up and so cancelled it for the day. Apologies to Peter White who was shrinking noticeably through the day due to lack of nourishment.

.

We also could have done without the wind from a vary rare direction for us - approximately SSE. This brought the wind from behind the shed and through all...

THE FESTIVE SEASON

Posted by Terry Smith on January 14, 2019 at 9:30 PM Comments comments (1)

We had some pretty good turnouts over the festive season. There was no formal racing and everything was Rafferty's Rules. A lot of barging went on at the marks but it was all taken in good humour.

.

One of my highlights over this period was a day spent sailing Roy Shelton's Wee Nip. This is not a real hard boat to rig. To set up you:

stick the mast into its' hole in the d...

I suppose I had better catch up on my homework.

.

This was our last stern chaser of the year. If I recall rightly, the wind was light and dropped out causing a cancellation of races after Race 7.

.

David 'You can't beat the handicapper' Martin was going to pull out after Race 6 but decided to go for one more. David was ahead at the end o...
