Shepherds pie for us tonight,  just the right weather for it, 7cm of snow and still falling hard.

 

Enjoy you Goulash

CC, that is too much Goulash and wine for one person, set some extra plates and glasses out, feeling a bit 'peckish':cheers:. Oh, you don't do glasses...;)

Who has ever say that I'm alone here, there is 2 scaled CC plus SWMBO !

Whatever, your welcome, for the wine, I prefer my Terracotta ! I let the glass to my wife

I'm not that classy a guy... A little bit Viking too, sorry !

We no longer can drink in our ennemies's skull :rofl2::rofl2:

We're about 55km NW of Limoges but on top of a hill about 350m above sea level. There is no snow in the local town ( about 100m lower ) and 25cm in the Auvergne which is about 100km  to the east.

Here, we are one first step of the Ardennes hills,  West of Dinant and the river Meuse

21Kms of Givet in France, Yes I know the Fort de Charlemont !

this morning, there was a bit of snow but they forecast -2° for this night !

Tomorrow will be skiddy !! Luckily I did'nt work !

Believe me working on the roadside to fix a car when the road are slippery !!

It's a kind of russian roulette !! I'm a bit tired of this game !

at least, our dear @perdu will know what I'm talking about !

Sincerely.

At least a red one is easier to find under the ice

 

They might not be very bright but that makes it a brilliant job

 

My favourites were the Sunday Morning fiddlers

 

Spend all morning fitting the latest whizzbang accessory

 

And then have to join the Sunday afternoon queue for the breakdown guy to get the car started again afterwards

 

Sunday afternoon, the next busiest time after Monday morning

 

 

Why was Monday busy?

 

Same reason but they didn't have the sense to make the call before they realised they couldn't get to work

 

And I loved it, best job I ever had

Hello dears,

It has been a good modelling evening, listening to my metal show on the radio !!

Here are the choosen ones for today,

WP_20171201_20_27_34_Pro

I worked on my Shagbat... Still fighting with the camera port !

Next time I must read the Eduard's notice too before gluing Something !!

WP_20171201_23_18_17_Pro

Not too bad, let's look closer...

WP_20171201_23_16_59_Pro

Hope that @Ex-FAAWAFU will enjoy the wood grain :worry::worry:

And with a little bit of luck, one can identify the nature of that wood, Birch no Oak, Dear can it be a willow ???

I've worked on the device for the Navigator table, sorry I forget the name of it !

And started the engine....

WP_20171202_00_07_22_Pro

I did'nt like the flat spark plug wire, and never saw flat high voltage wires at all !!

Hope that you enjoy the build, whatever thank for popping in and watching !!:worthy:

Wish you a good week end !

Sincerely.

Absolutely and definitely right !!

Like the one whoi has tried to put an amplificator for his earbreaker !!

And cut in a CANbus wire as the engine was running !!

Is'nt that brilliant ?? The car was a Mercedes 350...

The repair was over 2500€ since the UPC of the car has totally disliked the move...

And the Customer has asked for the warranty :rofl2:

We should write a book, not to mention some misses who can also be smart !!!

Sincerely.
