  2. I wonder what the shootings orgs response is to this. Something ive been on about for years, if ALL of the shooting and country sports orgs (including all the fishing) joined together as 1 group, and actually fought for their members it may have gone a different way.
  3. Been having a chat with our neighbour (nice lady) and Mrs this afternoon about saving water. The idea of having a shower together was not a good idea. 😕 I'm trying.

    Driving License

    As long as its up to date its legal, It cannot be used for ID (obviously no image) and stays legal until your 70 years old. I have a paper type, all the information on it is correct so have no need to go plastic.

    I've got an old paper one too. It's only just in one piece, I don't like getting it out of my wallet if I can help it.
  10. Went for a walk with the dogs last Saturday and saw some lovely Dog rose, 1 1/2 inch thick and plumb bob straight, cut it when you see it. It may not be there next time. I always have a silky pocket boy in the truck.
  11. I have tried to work out the actual fee's but its rather grey as to what they actually bill you for. Not like im having to sell a kidney to pay for my silly mistake. But im sure the boots will raise some conversation this season, specially from the wife.
  12. I bet if you checked the label in your Y fronts there made in China. And I was one of them. Just had a senior moment at the time of ordering, never even noticed it was a Spanish company.
  13. Dropped a major clanger last week, my Harkila Boa Boots are going in the bin shortly after falling apart after 4 years. So i needed a replacement, after doing a fair bit of research i decided on a pair of of Chiruca Dogo boots, and found the cheapest from a store called Deporvillage. had my size in so placed the order. Tracked on Friday and all was looking good for Monday, but then, on the tracking i saw "Released from Customs" then "Custom Charges raised" £75 blooming custom charges, what a plonker £16 less than the dearest in the country. Oh dear, Never mind, every days a school day.
  14. RIP, who couldn't fancy her in those black skin tight leggings.
  15. Im in the process of removing gravel boards and replacing with picket fencing, gravel boards certainly dont help hedgehogs much. We have planted 6 fruit trees 1 beech, 1 false acacia and some other tree in our and next door neighbours garden. Loads of birds, inc green woodpecker, song thrush various finches and the usual blackbird robin, bees of all shapes and sizes, in the pond minnows, shrimps, water boatmen loads of other little wriggle things all in a little pond.
  16. Afternoon sir, long time since we've been in touch. Top left & right please. If you have any of the usual I'll have a load too please.
  17. I know allot take the micky, but you my man have skills that many just dream of. 👍
  18. Had my 1st hand gun in 64, by 66 I'd got a collection of around 7 or 8. Expensive to feed on my money at the time a pacjet of caps were 3d. By 1969 I bought my first spud gun, with that came my 1st shooting accident, shooting my big sis in the face with a piece of Maris Piper. That got my hand guns confiscated for 2 weeks (1/2 term) By age 11 I got my 1st go with an old air rifle, Pop (grandad) was a rifleman in the Sherwood foresters, he taught me well. Match heads at 20 yards seemed easy, so moved on the next floor neighbours flower heads. This is were I picked up my liking for long range shooting. By 14 I'd put 101 holes in my neighbor's cap as it was left on the scaffolding he had erected to point his chimney stack. I then went onto rabbits and would walk down to the canal and pop off a load of rabbits, feeding the household, sometimes it was the only meat we'd have all week. Having 2 part time jobs helped me save for my 1st decent air rifle, a BSA meteor. That was awesome, I could take pretty pigeons out at 40 yards, later found out they were a chaps racers from over the road. They were no good anyway if they didn't go straight home. Apparently !!! And they did nick my dad's lettuces so crop protection was an acceptable reason. Then I started full time work and enabled me to buy things that made a louder bang. That's about it really, we all started in small stuff and things just seem to grow.
  19. And to make matters worse they keep on pushing back the years for state pension, this years they have added another 12 moths on mine, how can you plan to retire when they keep doing that. Im now being forced to work another 12 months before i retire, but i suppose i could always retire early and claim a load of benefits........................... BUT oh no i cant claim a penny because i have savings !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  20. Note to self, "wear glasses when reading" "can't feel" "can feel" Close
  21. Living the dream 👍
  22. Steve what you say regarding feeling it with your nail its beyond what a scratch is, you cant remove that with any magic potion, it needs filling and a respray. Dont waste your time and money you will only end up removing the hard lacquered coating that protects the paint work.
  23. Nick Berry, and the fit barmaid, and brill sound track. Had a couple in the Aidensfield Arms (Goathland Hotel) a few years, had a good laugh walking through Goathland, a couple started to complain about the amount of dog truffles on the paths and grass, seriously thought that lamb parcels were doggy doo doo.
