  1. An elderly Florida lady did her shopping and, upon returning to her car, found four males in the act of leaving with her vehicle. She dropped her shopping bags and drew her handgun, proceeding to scream at the top of her lungs, “I have a gun, and I know how to use it! Get out of the car!”. The four men didn’t wait for a second threat. They got out and ran like mad. The lady, somewhat shaken, then proceeded to load her shopping bags into the back of the car and got into the driver’s seat. She was so shaken that she could not get her key into the ignition. She tried and tried, and then she realized why. It was for the same reason she had wondered why there was a football, a Frisbee and two 12-packs of beer in the front seat. A few minutes later, she found her own car parked four or five spaces farther down. She loaded her bags into the car and drove to the police station to report her mistake. The sergeant to whom she told the story couldn’t stop laughing. He pointed to the other end of the counter, where four pale men were reporting a carjacking by a mad, elderly woman described as white, less than five feet tall, glasses, curly white hair, and carrying a large handgun. No charges were filed. The moral of the story? If you’re going to have a senior moment… make it memorable. Simon

  6. Alistair dear chap, you have a fine Mustang there, nearing completion. Keep up the good work. Stay safe. Simon.
  7. Three pilots are walking through the forest when they come upon a set of tracks. The Air Force pilot says, "Those are deer tracks." The Army pilot says, "No, those are elk tracks." The Navy pilot says, "You're both wrong! Those are moose tracks." The pilots were still arguing when the train hit them... Simon.
  8. I would not worry too much Alistair, most of the "Invasion Stripes" were just brush painted on, and not that particular either. Stay safe. Simon.
  9. On the outskirts of a small town, there was a big, old pecan tree just inside the cemetery fence. One day, two boys filled up a bucketful of nuts and sat down by the tree, out of sight, and began dividing the nuts. "One for you, one for me, one for you, one for me," said one boy. Several dropped and rolled down toward the fence. Another boy came riding along the road on his bicycle. As he passed, he thought he heard voices from inside the cemetery. He slowed down to investigate. Sure enough, he heard, "One for you, one for me, one for you, one for me ...." He just knew what it was. He jumped back on his bike and rode off. Just around the bend he met an old man with a cane, hobbling along. "Come here quick," said the boy, "you won't believe what I heard! Satan and the Lord are down at the cemetery dividing up the souls!" The man said, "Beat it kid, can't you see it's hard for me to walk." When the boy insisted though, the man hobbled slowly to the cemetery. Standing by the fence they heard, "One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me." The old man whispered, "Boy, you've been tellin' me the truth. Let's see if we can see the Lord...?" Shaking with fear, they peered through the fence, yet were still unable to see anything. The old man and the boy gripped the wrought iron bars of the fence tighter and tighter as they tried to get a glimpse of the Lord. At last they heard, "One for you, one for me. That's all. Now let's go get those nuts by the fence and we'll be done...." They say the old man had the lead for a good half-mile before the kid on the bike passed him. Simon.

  14. And a belated happy birthday from me to Ced. Seems like you had a busy week, but still found time for some bench work. Stay safe. Simon.
  15. Thanks @giemme. While I had time, out came the XF 3 Yellow again, by itself this time. Prop and bits. I then noticed that I had made a boo boo on the cockpit floor. Rectified this and also remembered to paint the rudder pedals too. I can`t see any more spraying been done today but I will see what I can do later, Stay safe. Simon.
  16. Thanks lads, the comments are most welcome. Thanks @TheBaron AND @elger. Off to work we go, rubber black loaded and used, Cockpit floor. Tyres. Then masking.. Before letting loose with some home made interior green XF 77 + XF3. The seat. And finally the U/C roof bit, it becomes part of the cockpit floor. Let that lot dry before figuring out what next to do. Until then, another blast from the past. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0JvHroG3u5E Stay safe. Simon.
  17. The health bit is just one of those things Tony, I had suffered from it since 96 so have got use to it. The kit is slowly getting there, I think. They come nicely moulded Giorgio. Thanks @Hamden Time for that infamous "Scotch Paint" the Black Wash.... Rad. And rad roof. Cockpit walls. And tail wheel bay. I then dotted some liquid mask Mr Neo on the seat. And cockpit floor/ front. Hopefully a bit more could be done tomorrow. Stay safe. Simon.
  18. Thanks lads, hopefully I will be able to replace it, also the tail wheel leg has disappeared to.... Thanks @Hamden. Had time this lunchtime t spray some gloss varnish around (W&N ) Cockpit walls. Seat and radiator. Radiator roof? Then added some clear red/orange/yellow and thinned a bit more for the cockpit floor staining. Said mix. I also fixed some parts to the inside of the lower wing. But numbnutz her got the colours the wrong way around. That`s all for now. Stay safe. Simon.
  19. Everyone has their own way of doing things and getting the results they want. You have got that sorted Giorgio. Nice work BTW. Stay safe. Simon.
