I'd post image of snob bob but i can't find him..
Folk must wonder how I take ages trying to explain things trying avoid a grammar faux-pas.
More likely think I'm a rambling auld git (no agreement, please)

Sitting with a Maccy's coffee,
it was next door to Next so......
as it 'appened.
One more for a freebie,
my free alarm for 7.30 is set as they fire out an email at 7.30 am to tell you the total needed for a freebie after buying one..
problem is that I'm in the shack by then..

At ease, folks..

Will you be having a go at 800 words per minute with yer Morse Code?
-. --
When I passed (not past) the exam in the late 80s, I was awarded a 7 (class B) call which was for passing the exam only, to become a 4 (then) I had to send and receive 12 WPM in morse code, I attended classes where I was regularly doing 15wpm with no problem, I just never sat the exam.
I came back and found the morse requirement was dropped, you wouldn't believe the inverted snobbery this caused..
You generate anything with a computer nowadays..
Have a go at this...

Can well believe the snobbery dropping the morse code from the test created. It split one scout group, when the younger leaders found they didn't have to learn it. And they owned half the radio equipment, mainly the newer items.

Th 800 wpm was from the link you posted.

Were you good enough to say if it were the same person tapping away at the key?
You bought a new pole to go with yer new curtains! What were wrong with the old one?
Try either to use the old holes, or ignore them entirely. If the holes match it can be a blessing, if they nearly match they cause more trouble than they're worth.

They want to cut yer methane output. What they don't tell you, or don't know is the non meat equivalents are more damaging than their meat equivalent.
Even when free at the local Gregg's, I've said no. If they want me to start eating them, they can start paying me first.
Said to the area manager, who was going between the two stores in town. About 300-400 yards apart. She didn't take it well.

That comes with experience,
apparently you can tell the difference between computer generated CW and hand..
I'd guess it wouldn't take long to gauge that..
Methane me produce gas..
so that is what it is.....
it's the sugar free sweets, honest..

The whirlwind that is Beag returns this afternoon

Not too bad, yerssen
Ay
Do I have to?

Happy Birthday, although I didn't realise it was this early in the year.
You not been using it long enough then.
McD's coffee is famous for causing gas production. That'll be next, you watch.
Frozen by methane?

Be out, when the young 'un arrives. Confuse him.

Birthday, I'm old enough, gimme nine months until my next..

Headed out and scary Mary at some points, ice everywhere, glad for gritted tarmac in bits but diverted eventually on to an occasionally icy canal path, quite a few anglers out looking for pike..
told one bloke to set a bait along the margins, got a funny look..
headed west and bagged a geocache the first for years..
on the way, I got stopped by angler, 'You were right'
cycled away with smug face:laugh:
Beag gone after a whirlwind visit...

the temperature got up to an impressive 1c at one point^_^

Look at this, I'm going to top my previous yearly total..
going for it.jpg

Think its wrong, somehow..

That's what I thought, not that long since yer last one.

We've ice on some roads, and it'll be on them whilst the warmer weather arrives. They get no sun all day at present.

Wonder if he watched you cycling off, having told him what to do, feeling like he should have said summat, not given you summat.
On yer return it'll have been "Who was that masked man?". What a thing to give you, a smug face. Not as though you can do much with one, is it.
Just the tidying up to do now your allowed out of yer room.

I'll remind you of that as the year draws to an end. See how good a prediction it was, and to see if you lived up to expectations.

3.8°C here. Usual complaints that it's cold out, by people dressed more for summer.
