Derbyshire seems to have more than 3 pleasant days during the year after all. Truly you live in a garden spot, much like the rural western areas of our own state. That is an area I love and have tramped about many times over the years. I prefer it even to our beautiful beaches. Many is the time we pitched a tent and with small shovel in hand squatted behind a suitable bush and...er... communed with nature.
I'd take a chance on nicking one of those rings if I were you. Tie the curtain back up with an old shoe lace or a handy bit of string. I'd bet you can live another week or two at least before Lady "J" notices what you've done and terminates you current reincarnation. Take a chance pal. Who knows you might come back as Brittany Spear's new boy friend...
It has been kind of you not to mention that our Panthers were defeated by the Sea-hawks last week. I will not be going to the Super Bowl to watch the game in person. Actually if the Panthers had won I would not be going either....
I have a long history of building scale models. When I was eight years of age I received a huge multi-model kit for Christmas. My first encounter with polystyrene glue and Monogram kits was a delight. That first kit was a perfect way to start. There was a P51-D, a MiG 17, a FW-190, and a Panther jet all in one huge kit. I was hooked.
Since then I have built planes, rockets, cars and ships. Some from kits, some from scratch. I graduated from plastic kits to balsa flying models and from there to small rubber band flying models to large scale R/C models. It was all great fun but I have not built anything since our son left home.
I am really enjoying albeit vicariously Dux building his Fokker. We should have pictures any day now.... right Dux?
No one can tell you better than Dux SNAFU but as I understand it he lives in Combs in the Peak district of lovely Derbyshire. Here is a website that may be of help until Dux can elaborate further. http://www.buxtononline.net/Buxton-Onlin...98/outdoor2.htm
