Boat Buttoned Down —

With the weather being so changeable these days and high winds whistling around every corner it’s reassuring to know the Hede is secure on dry land for the winter —

The neighbours garage forms a useful windbreak so she won’t come to any harm here —

Unfortunately the canvas cover isn’t 100% watertight so rather than damage the trailer suspension if the hull fills and catches me out – I make sure there is no weight on the wheels overwinter —

The overspill from my garage such as bags containing suits of sails – the lawnmower and suchlike have to make do under a tarp in the box trailer —

which is another set of wheels that can spin freely with the load off the suspension —

Old habits die hard but I must admit there are times when I wonder where I get the energy —

but I do enjoy messing about —

Another day almost filled — roll on summer 😎

A World at War —

Hard to ignore politics when the people in charge have tied down a perfectly fit chap like mesel while they disappear over the horizon in search of a war.

Maggie did the same thing at a time when she was struggling in the popularity polls and engineered the Falklands Fiasco.

Even wonderkid Tony Blair needed a war to stay in power after people began to see through his dodgy blarney. He chose his fight – backed by George Bush – over non-existant Weapons of Mass Destruction supposedly held by Iraq. Unlike picking a fight with Russia – the Iraq War would have been a difficult one to lose.

If the chicken hearted Tory MP’s weren’t so scared for their jobs Bumbling Boris would be signing on down at the dole by now. That’s if he wasn’t already in the clink for giving away billions of taxpayer’s Dosh to his mates in the Covid carry-on when ordering protective clothing.

The only thing that will save Boris’s skin is a war and the way he is going he will get one. I’m pretty sure if they back President Putin into a corner they will get their war and there will be NO winners this time round.

I have no political axe to grind – in my opinion they are each as bad as the other in their own ways but I do hope the Tory Party see’s sense and dumps this guy. By his cack-handed handling of Brexit he is turning NI into a powder keg again and he is doing his best to do the same thing between Scotland and the Union.

Doing his best and meaning well is not enough when it puts the country in turmoil and might even lead to a nuclear war in World terms or a civil war in the Disunited Kingdom terms.

OK – the washing machine is done – I better go and hang my stuff up to dry.

Oh No! I feel another rant coming on when I think of the cost of drying a washing while Shell and BP are struggling to decide how to spend their billions of pounds in profits —
