  1. The funniest thing I've read in ages!
  2. Listen......... do you smell something? Dead pan delivery from Ray Stanz / Dan Aykroyd.
  3. Hi, Does this come with chokes please? If so, which ones? I'd like to see some photos if you can upload any? Many thanks
  4. Yes. Some viral thing from Christmas Eve onwards. Finally have enough breath in my body to venture out and I'm faced with hundreds of people walking 5 abreast.
  5. Just a quick thank you to all the Townies that descend on the countryside at Christmas. I doff my cap in your general direction and appreciate you taking the time to visit us. Without you cramming our pubs while bored between Christmas and New Year, without you parking on narrow lanes because your ilk have already filled the beauty spot car park, without you parking on double yellows because it's closer, without you looking like you're dressed for a day in court rather than a walk, without your trendy breed dogs wearing your Christmas jumpers, without you looking down your noses as I walk my dog in the same places I have for the last dozen years, without you kindly piling up rubbish miles from a bin but altogether in one place for someone else to take away, without your mountain of ***** next to the dog poo bin (simply couldn't take it home) and without you stopping in the middle of the road forcing me into the verge as you simply cannot sully your Nissan Duke...... life would be too dull. Thanks for coming. I look forward to Easter and Summer when you pile our bins high with still smoldering barbeques and allow us to go the long way round as you've blocked the road. Silly us, we should make more of the countryside a car park.
  6. So, to anyone still out there, I found a new job in surveying but as a manager. It hasn't been right for a while, commuting 2 hours a day, dull work, unfulfilling, just generally unhappy. The threat of Brexit hasn't made my job any more secure as projects are getting harder to win. I've applied to Network Rail and been offered a role add a Signaller. I've worked on the rail as a surveyor, so this stood me in good stead. I head off to signalling school in April. I'm chuffed to bits. It takes time, but it usually comes good in the end. Good salary, good conditions, good annual leave and hopefully a decent pension. And maybe more time off to shoot too. Cheers
  7. Morning Chris Is this still available please? Cheers
  8. Thank you. I have memories of a pair of tan school shoes that I loved, then hated a couple of weeks later. My mum dyed them for me. Bless her, they looked awful. I had the Mickey taken out of me at school. I'd hate a repeat performance. I've applied dubbin to my bag, I assume that'll come of with turps?
  9. Throughout my shooting career I've bought pretty much everything second hand. Chuffed to bits with some of my purchases. However, as much as I like the design of my cartridge bag, it's a rather bright tan leather colour. Any ideas how to tone this down? I have a cartridge belt in an almost identical colour too. Any assistance greatly received.
  10. Hi Jeff, Would you be willing to do £35 including postage please? Thanks
  11. Does this have a game pocket on the rear please? A further photo would be great. Also, where abouts are you? Thanks
  12. So, I've seen people wearing gilet / body warmers with a game pocket on the back. Barbour springs to mind but not sure of the model. Can anyone suggest a brand, name, website or similar where I can find one? Even a name or style so I can pick one up second hand (I like recycling / I'm tight). Really want to get ahead of the game before the beating season. Also, with the mild winters of late, it'll stop me sweating like a whore when battling up hill to the next drive.
  13. Use a file sharing website such as Hightail or Wetransfer. You'll need to subscribe, however free accounts are available. Upload to Hightail or similar using old machine, turn on new machine, download files. Not as simple as an external hard drive but another option.
  14. 2 on Friday and a further 2 on Saturday in different locations. 79
  15. Hi, I use the term plumber rather generically. I do mean gas safe in due course. I do a little plumbing at home and find it satisfying. I like the idea of working hard, generating your own work, and having a skill that will last. It's a first thought hence my query.
