    Luxury....
    We 'ad to get up in the morning at 'alf past ten at night, go down to 't mill, work twenty five hours a day and pay 't mill owner for permission to come to 't work and when we gorr 'ome our mam and dad would to kill us an' dance up an' down on our graves singin' 'allelujah. An' you tell the young people of today that an' they won't believe you. They won't.

    Or.....(This actually took longer than a weekend.)

    When I started to heat treat the bamboo for a customer's rod my heat gun quit. Off to buy a new one. Then when I made test strips to check my glue they failed. First time ever. I ordered new glue. Started to set my planing forms and dropped my dial indicator bending the shaft and ruining it. Bought a new one. Planed the strips and glued them with the new glue. Fitted the cork shives for the handle. Dropped my straight razor for turning corks and broke the tip out of it. So I started to turn down the handle with sandpaper instead. The circuit board containing the speed control on the lathe went insane or something. Before I could hit the emergency stop the lathe over ran and blew up the butt section blank. It also tore the main drive pulley apart, broke the belt and damaged one of the motor brushes. Ordered new circuit board, pulley, belt and brushes. Spent the weekend planing a new butt section and rebuilding my lathe. Lathe repaired now. New butt section corked and the handle is turned, but thirteen of my best cork shives are permanently glued to a destroyed blank.
    But am I cross? Yes I'm *%$*(~!! cross!

    S.
    Sixty and still got it.
    Just can't remember where I set it down.

    4th weekend of being down with this b*****d man flu that i cannot shift, thought i would get it checked at the DR's as it isn't shifting at all but the earliest appointment is in two weeks time. Hopefully it pisses off before this weekend so i can get out...i would rather have this than be dragged around ikea though.

    Spent thursday evening at A&E with my elderly father-in-law only to end up getting checked out myself. Had a sore leg all week and when I showed my wife at Hospital was told to see the doc straightaway as leg inflamed with red line going up it. Turns out I had cellulitis probably from an insect bite last weekend when I was walking the dogs through sand dunes. Spent all weekend in agony on penicillin. Better get better today as off fishing for the next 3 days!

    Saturday night after a great curry for tea, well excited, bought me permit and sorted out me kit, went to bed all charged up, first outing this year.
    5.30 am up and off, bit parky, nevermind, bankside for sunrise, only 1 degree it said on the dashboard, hmmm
    Into me waders, a bit warmer and let's have a look, ******, rivers in full spate, looks like hot chocolate but not hot !, dammit.
    Step into the stream, bloody freezing and now I need a poo like right now, blummin curry, , jungle style, back in the truck, home before 8, never wetted the line, what a great start to the season, gutted !
    Yes, I do heartily repent. I repent I had not done more mischief; and that we did not cut the throats of them that took us, and I am extremely sorry that you aren't hanged as well as we.

    Huh. A day on Leighton on Sunday. Freezing easterly wind, water a bit low and quite colored making the trout feel a little under the weather. But as they say: a bad days fishing......

    Off post here because although I've had plenty of cr4p weekends before now, this one was just fine.
    No fishing but I was at home to watch all of the MotoGP weekend, walk the dogs on the beach and have lunch out with the wife.
    Can't grumble at that.
    Only when the last tree has been cut down, the last fish caught and the last river poisoned, will we realise, we cannot eat money.

    The weekend wasn't that bad, but Monday sucked hugely. I saw the oncologist in the morning to get the biopsy results and find out what they plan to do. Three words -- 'stage IV melanoma'. Tumors throughout the body and some in the brain with treatment (radiation and immuno-therapy starting this week. THEN, to top off the day, I had a puncture on the way home.

    That's why I give myself an hour before venturing out and it is worse on a work day , try stopping a truck in the middle of a town.
