Morning friendlies

Still thick cloud cover, and lots of flooding. MIGHT get a BIT of sunshine tomorrow but it'll rain again over the weekend... Hopefully by next week it'll have cleared up a bit. I guess we shouldn't complain - there are places that desperately need the rain, and it's nothing but a blessing

We were supposed to have some more weather tonight, but it hasn't hit yet. Pretty day, with lots of sunshine. Still haven't made this go-round's snow angel though. Project for tomorrow, if there's any snow left.

Added to the rain we now have "Load Shedding" for 4 hours per day. The Electric Depo said that "load shedding" has to be implemented as they have no dry coal to burn to make electricity and power..Oh Joy AFRICA.

Movie critic time ..
rented the new Bob Redford movie, all is lost.
Don't rent it yourself, buy ice cream or something.
In the first 45 minutes he made more mistakes than I could count.
I will give him credit for repairing the boat after the container strike. I might get some of that stuff.
from dead AGM batteries from being submerged [don't matter, they're sealed. leave 'em under till barnacles grow.]
To cutting the mast free after turning turtle, with a knife.[right!]
he even hung a drogue from the stern for pity sake.
lastly, get this ...no EPIRB!!
1965, mmm .. good year for muscle cars ....

Good for you, Rotor. Now you can explain the distribution of heat in my fry pan at breakfast,
and why it always sticks in the middle. Excellent conversation in the morning.

p.s. float me those pics.
We start to move aircraft next week for the show. Sad news, Fantasy of Flight is closing in April.
Might be some nice birds up for sale ...

Yeah, it's pretty ridiculous. Glad to see another South African here! Lol. Luckily we have a little bit of sunshine today. Let's hope it lasts!

Yeah, you and I know that, but try telling them.

An announcement was made by Eskom (the power suppliers) that "load shedding" is on hold. Then why was my home and surrounding areas without power from Wednesday 4:00pm until Saturday morning??? Getting answers out of these people is virtually impossible. It is a rubbish situation.

Well, go to a lake. Shovel the snow. Use it to build Igloo. Chop hole in ice. Look for seals.
Watch for bears(big white ones!)

I don't suppose your friend would be much use as the power co do not know what they are doing most of the time. I think it is a case of "grin and bear it" but I am not much good at that. I tend to get riled and then "loose it". But thanks all the same ..........

Ed, I think they thought we would accept their explanation of the "coal is wet". They credit us with the brain matter as them but that is not so ........ We ask questions. As I say
Oh Joy Africa!
