My daughter and I gave our mailbox a bit of a spruce up on the weekend.
She forgot the lipstick...
And the wings...
We're well grounded around here.
Just needs a GS badge with the Propeller insignia .

Mexican turnip is new to me.
You need some galangal to round it off !
Mate across the road used to grow Mexican tomatoes, he always seemed happy.
Put together an auto door for the girls,to be fitted this weekend!
If I was a chicken I'd be approaching that door with caution.
Looks like a guillotine
With all the rain, I seem to be mowing a whole lot more this year. It sort of dried up and browned for a very short spell, but since then it's been like spring all summer. Today I finally went over to my shop and turned something today. It's nearly done. I was thirsty and sweating my ass off, so I cut my day short.
Dreaming of the next ride.
Well since we haven't been able to ride here's what I've been up to.
My wife Jo wanted a walk-in robe off our bedroom.
The plan was to cut the room directly behind our bedroom into two with a partition wall. One half to become the walk-in robe and the other half to become a small office.
All has gone fairly well considering I'm not a Carpenter or a Plasterer, yet as a Plumber in my previous life I had a bit of an idea.
I nearly did my best Uncle Fester impersonation by lighting myself up when I started to cut through the main electricity feed wire from the switch board to a power point near the new doorway opening.
Something felt strange whilst cutting through the plaster board with a hand saw so I stopped. I assumed all the electrical cabling was clipped under the floor after I'd had a quick look before cutting. Not the case as I found out.
Anyway all has gone well just need to do a bit more stopping up, sanding, architrave and paint.
Once lockdown allows us back into Melbourne we'll go and pick up some wardrobe inserts, drawers etc and fit it out.
Hats off to all you Plasterers out there, can't say I'm a fan of hanging sheet plaster.
Those sheets are heavy suckers, stopping up and sanding, and the bloody dust gets everywhere.
In one of the pics you'll see the "cocoon" arrangement I made trying to prevent dust getting into the bedroom.
Fence life extension project nearing its end thank effing Christ ...
Them there rails.... Still serviceable after 22 yrs !!
Treated with dolphin safe , high carbon deezil sump extractant,blended with wild pipi sea foam .
An old cocky told me once that the best most bug resistant fence posts were cut just where you want them. Seems most timber adapts in a micro way to its local environment and prefers not be eaten by the local bugs. Worked for me, along with liberal use of sump oil in the hole.40 years now and counting.
Ceptin the underground part , the old bloodwood posts I replaced are like the day I cut /split em 20 odd yrs ago , straight into the wood shed for thermal duties ..
Things done while not riding.... Includes work.
Did a heap of work recently for a mate, I mean 15+ hours of my time, similar of staff time, plus costs of using some external business also involved in the process. Right around the lead up to 30th June, busiest time of year, pushed other (fee paying) client business to the side to get this done for him.
All up a few (or more) thousands of dollars in outright time and costs for said mate to go... 'nah, doing something different now'.
Ummm, ok, thanks.
On top of not riding for the last 7-8 weeks, slightly frustrating.
Its Friday, pass the bourbon, fuck it.
What are mates good for then.
My COVID bar seems to open earlier every week of lockdown…
Dolphin safe?? I've been told that dolphin oil is a great protectant for timber. You've just gotta catch them and cold press them.
