What are your jeans doing today?

@smoothsailor This is very cool. Really impressive how you’re able to do this, especially as it’s not your main trade (or is it now?). Bike looks great.

Me and my better half made this biscuit Christmas tree for the sprogs. Well, she made it and I tidied up after her.

Honestly? I know the standards, but kids are way more intelligent and resourceful than us ‘grown ups’ and I am not convinced some wee monkey wouldn’t figure out a way to do some damage to any outlet, whether it had some kind of ‘safety’ device or not.

I was actually quoting my mum when she got annoyed at my sister using them and I never opened my mouth so she then decided it was my fault (because I knew) :dry::laugh2:

:biggrin: Good on her. Why waste an opportunity to give one child a good rollicking when you can do two at once.

It is indeed, the brickworks have been abandoned for 35yrs, folks were hoping that it would taken back by nature...alas

We like to ride up the valley following the river and end up at Our Cow Molly farm (just up the road from my folks house) for an ice cream.

Excellent, I worked in one of those buildings (the Three Graces) for a week back in the late 90s, can’t remember which one exactly but I think it was the one on the right (with no Liver bird at the top). I got the ferry to Birkenhead one lunchtime and they were playing “Ferry ‘Cross the Mersey” on a loop. I stayed at the Atlantic Tower hotel - is that still there?

I haven’t been on the ferry for years but I bet they’ll still have that song on loop!! We used to get the ferry to Seacombe and walk up to New Brighton in the school holidays. Small world I worked in a place along the front in the late 90s. Looks like that hotel is still there. Surprised they didn’t put you up in the Adelphi!

I did a survey of the hotel in 2002 looks like its still standing

Had a spontaneous electrical fire in the back of my car due to a short between some wires in the roof; melted half my camping gear four states from home

Luckily, I’m staying with a good friend in town who’s done a lot to help me get it all figured out, and there was a shop nearby that was very kind & understanding and got me squared away quick with confirmation that it should now be safe to drive—Boulder Valley Auto, who I’d strongly recommend to anyone in the area

Luckily, clothes nor boots (nor persons) were harmed at any point
