No booze for 7 days from lunchtime today

So around about then I was starting to sober up and realise just how much work I have to do this next two weeks. 2 tons of top soil needed for the veg beds, a new display rack for the Tea lady's stand so we can display the leads and I also have just moved this little lot from the front drive to the rear garden ready for cleaning;


White for water, 4 of. Black for feed storage, 6 of. Blue for goal post feeders, 10 of. The lads have some work to do next week I may get as much prep done this week and then next week all we have to do is fit the goal posts and hange them. A lot of washing out to be done as they certainly pong!



P.S. Yes thats our little Camping Khazi in the corner.

Something for the weekend

Perhaps you shouldnt trust your mates;

Auntie

Well where do you start, on call from today so sober but last night Auntie laid on the best TV for a long time, this I suspect wasnt meant to be comedy but I swear I almost wet myself, even the tea lady cracked a smile.

Its often seen as an embarrasing affliction but I'm sure you could get some mileage from it.
Before anyone gets on their high horse I worked with a grown man that endured this condition and he certainly made the day pass!

Highclere Castle

What a cracking weekend, I tried to log on a couple of times but the travelodge was in a dead spot and the show was far too busy!

Not sure exactly how many came through the gates but I suspect the figure is over the 20 000 mark.
I did sneak off very early and spent a few minutes a couple of stands up at the Wiltshire Rod and Gun company, very nice collection of Howa rifles, good prices for a complete package too!

We sold out of our Mendota slip leads, sold lots of our own ones and most of the ones I had made as trials. I even took a few orders for specials from customers. I suspect I will be very busy this week.
Today the Tea Lady and I have been married for 20 years. Quite an achievement for anyone to put up with me for 20 days let alone 20 years.

Still I suspect that my sense of humour might help?

In the mean time thanks to Stephen here is a warning to all those claybreakers amongst you!

Dont rest your muzzles on the toes, always keep the muzzles over the front bar of the cage;

Never ever load your gun and rest it on your toes;

Note to self, Hitec trainers are not resistant to a single 12 bore cartridge of No8 shot!

View from above;

Can I hear an ow please? I suspect that a little more than a pedicure is needed!

Women take note

Sports injuries can occur in the home;

So know your place!

All in all not a bad effort

I could have tried harder I suppose, football saturday afternoon, chainsawing logs into the evening and a dry night in. Sunday was clays in the morning which went from bad to worse, home for a fantastic lunch, all home made and the woods after.

Steve took a few rounds to get his rimfire on, another nice CZ;

A few groups resulted in this;

Toni did a few check groups at various distances then had a go witth my Ruger, a 77Mk11HBVT in .223 which shortly after this was taken saw of a very sandy coloured fox who was foolish enough to stand around in the backstop!

Sorrry I have been rather busy recently

Struggling to keep the taxmans paperwork in order whilst balancing 2 jobs and a shoot syndicate. Nothing new I suppose.

I thought that you might appreciate this;

I thought that in light of all of the recent malarkey in the Prison of Westminster, sorry that should read Palace that perhaps Her Majesties finest Revenue Inspectors might be too busy for me, pity its only a hope!


Plenty going on at the moment at the day job, wondering if the high winds will drop more trees for clearing and planning this weekends training course.


The Tea Lady and I are at the Game fair at Highclere Castle on the Whit weekend


In the meantime perhaps the looming local and Euro elections will have caused the clowns to have bucked up!


In the meantime perhaps this:

Might give you a laugh.

I can't verify the sums

Mainly because I'm too thick and lazy but for those amongst you so inclined, fill your boots;

This was sent by someone who works for the Army Corp of Engineers. READ THEN WATCH CLIP (engineers will love this one)] How many times have you wondered how strong those cement barriers are that you see in front of military base entrances? From time to time someone asks me what the concrete barriers are in front of controlled and secure buildings. When I tell them that the barriers will stop traffic,even trucks, from approaching the secure building I usually get a look of disbelief. This footage should prove the point. In this test, the following parameters were used. Read them and then watch the film clip.
Truck = 65,000 lbs. Speed = 50 mph Kinetic Energy = 5.5 MILLION ft. lbs. Stopped in 24 inches !!!!

I can reasonably surmise that not even the Hamster drove this one!

PC jealousy?

This is one of the strangest yet? Time for the Tyburn Tree Solution!

A painfully tiring weekend in Hampshire


The Tea Lady and I spent the weekend at Broadlands doing the Hampshire Country Fair. The organisers had moved the layout without moving the traders so we spent the weekend by the Falconry arena. thanks for feck all lads!


The stall looked good and we took 5 Springers along;

Only problem we had was the crack smuggler sat in front of us:


There was however some great wood carving done with Chainsaws and one of our dogs was a model:

And finally some funnies;

Something I thought would be good for the dog minding;
