How's your day?

If you were passing us Ube, you'd have to give a long single blast, as you would be entering the main channel and turning right on to the River Bure.

Ube, just as long as your little legs let you look over the roof of your boat, that's all that matters. Not wishing to pry but are you a live aboard or leisure boater ? Have you seen my narrowboat art, which I've posted. I believe the thread is Beekays paintings or pictures.

Might be in wrong topic but have we heard from PeverilPeril lately?

A bit boring I realise, but to us it's been a milestone. Taken our first trip to the shops in 13 months. Went into Waitrose in Lewes, as 'er indoors thought that now she has her government letter saying she can venture out, she'd give it a go. Have to admit, it was a bit daunting at first and seemed surreal mixing with other people. We had to search our way round as we'd forgot where things were and also the store had lots of changes due to Covid. Got home safely though and had our coffee outside, although it was very cold. Was apprehensive about Wroxham next Saturday, but now looking forward to it. Should do the car a bit of good too. Next step, Nottingham.

Being out & about daily I do believe some folk will be self isolating for the rest of their life, they may even enjoy it?

Isn't it called a 'Bucky or Buckby Can, feel free to shoot me if I'm wrong Ube.

First of all, make sure it's clean and then give it a couple of coats of primer. I choose white because it brings out the brightness of colours. I've always used enamel paints ( Humbrol modellers paint), but don't seem to be able to find it nowadays. I've started using Acylic paints with satisfactory results. My sister in law (who lives in Nottingham) has bought me lots. But there is an ulterior motive with her. So glad you approve of my efforts and I'll watch your progress with interest.

Ps, A couple of my pieces have been shown on You Tube, on a clip called "The Tiny Narrowboat" ep.3 or 4. (Quite chuffed with that).

Just sitting with a cuppa watching the toddlers at the holiday club or whatever on the school lawns opposite my living room window and it’s almost made me turn vegetarian.

 

That got your interest, din’t it!!

 

They just can’t stand still. Whilst they’re waiting for the little ones at the back to catch up, they “frolic”. They jump up and down, kick their legs out, have a little run round - just like young horses or lambs or goat kids. It made me think that animals play too, and if they play they feel pleasure; and if they feel pleasure they feel pain. I’ve begun to notice that that roast chicken looks less like food, and more like a dead animal!

 

I would have put me down as a carnivore. I love meat - always have. But ...

Am I getting soft in my old age, or just soft in the head!?

I know a couple of vegetarians and they seem to thrive on their diet. I have tried vegetarian meals on occasions and found them bland. I enjoy good food. I live to eat rather than eat to live. I’m sure if I visited an abattoir I would never eat meat again!

It reminds me of a joke about a rabbi and an exhaust pipe but I can’t remember how it went! :biggrin:
