Crikey!! What a day

G'Day all,

Just dropped in for a bit of a whinge & groan.

1. Weedwacker threw in the towel. Had to strip the carby, working again.

2. Feel really old. Our youngest's 21st Birthday today. (lucky last)

3. 26th Wedding Anniversary.

4. We're out of BBQ gas.

5. It's so hot I've melted 3 times but revived with cold beer.



Just logged on to find a Rainee recipe then off to get the gas.

Have a great day all. Just getting dark here now (thank goodness)

Poor Brooksy! Sounds like a good day to whine a bit. Nothing that a couple cold beer won't fix though. Hope you feel better.

brooksy, there's no better feeling than tearing open a carburetor, then actually getting all of those bearings and springs to go back to where they popped out, and then slapping it back together and getting the engine to run. in my experience, these things are often mutually exclusive.

you deserve a cold one mate. just save one for me....

Good news

He made it to 26!!! Hoping you have many more. A 21 year old will keep you together. You have to in order to keep her on the straight and narrow. Different world out there. Wishing you all the best.

Thanks guys.

Yes, the evening got better with more beer.

Bucky!!! Great to hear from you matey!! The carby on the Stihl is really simple, and as you know, it's the simple things that cause the major problems. With hands like mine & looking through 'amber eyes', the tiny spring did cause some heartache refitting it.

Thanks for the hug Wasabi, feel much better now. I'd love a volcano, I'll have to check it out. Still can't work out how a 21 year old can have a 36 year old young'un. Must be something to do with feminine mathematics.

ITK - it was too hot here for fried rice.....

BBQ was a failure, while I was mucking about & heading down to get the gas, youngest went down & picked up heaps of pizzas. Saved me from cooking, but didn't taste as good.

Elfy's Macaroni salad was a hit even without the BBQ.
