  4. It sounds more fun (and more productive) than the domestic drudgery ahead of me today. And Jacqui is right - you do have a talent for it.

  5. Ahhhh, the years of the midlife crisis! Some men feel the need to buy a fancy car - nothing wrong with making one.

  11. Ah John
    As I read this it's still a couple hours, maybe 5(!) before sunset. Montana, it's a bit north of the other states.

    Earlier today I got a new phone, the old had something like an ink blot appear on the screen. I'm told this is to be expected in the advance years of the phone, not only the owner.
    Anyway, pal, hope you are well.

    Oh, yeah. you were asking about what I'm doing this evening several hours behind you. John, it's high Montana summer here, 71F. Ann and I are going to have a Tom Colllins or two until her boyfriend comes home.
    Then it's to bed.
    cheers,
    Mike

  12. For a moment there I thought it was a chocolate auto and I got excited.
    Tonight ? I will ask the cats what they want to watch on the television then I will read while I watch something boring. Everything has been boring on tv lately.
    Have a good weekend.

    1. Watch Stranger Things on Netflix. Definitely NOT boring. Riveting.

  13. Those wheels look quite stylish.

    When I click on my television in a few minutes, I will pretend to fly down to Rio. While glad that I am actually still here.

  14. I am wishing I had chocolate to eat.
    Watching the Olympics, sort of .. and today I sent a donation to pay for the care of a young pup who met the wrong creature ...

  17. Sounds like you need a good pick-me-up. Have you tried Metatone?

  18. I'm 50 and by 9pm last night we were getting ready for bed. However, this morning I was out with dozens of other Fireys in trucks doing a Rural/Urban Interface Exercise, so I'm not totally boring. Variety, including making aubergine creations, is good! :D

  19. At first I thought "he should get out more" but then I remembered that I was doing the ironing. Yours is more fun.

  20. Stop showing off. Where is the potato head that I submitted? It took me ages to prepare that one!

  21. It is so cute, have a great time carrying forward the village tradition.

  22. Very cool car. After chores are done I'll probably sit around and wallow in self pity. I need to get lost in a good book, I think.

  23. Sitting with a friend from Colorado reviewing the day and solving the world's problems. Everything will be just fine!

  24. They are lovely though and John - I am sure, although you would never say it - that whole Show would collapse without you at the helm.

  25. I dunno why you're doing this but I like it

    ReplyDelete
  26. I think it's Streamline Moderne, the last style with any real class in my opinion. Bound to win!

  27. and doing a mighty fine job I will add!!!

  28. Tamara de Lempicka would be proud of you!

  29. Aubergines sound more appealing than eggplants. From now on, that's what I am calling them. I shall impress everyone telling them I am growing exotic Aubergines in my garden.They will be jealous.
