You know, it makes you realise you just can’t get the staff these days!!!

 

If they don't soon add a 'Groan' button on here, I'm going to flag it up as an error.

Go to your room, young man, and stay there until you’ve had a long hard think about what you’ve just done!

I’m happy to go to my room.

 

It will of course be the railway room (bed 4), so no hardship there then!!!!

 

Perhaps while I’m in there I will make a new staff and fix the flag to it.....?

Now a question....

Looking  at the above picture she does not carry a Red Ensign!!!

I think I need to fit one.

Do you agree?


In that case shouldn’t she have her port of registration on the stern as well?

Agree.

 

Been having a look on the internet and I just can’t see one I like!

I have no truck with that!

If it isn’t, you can always lean the boat.  
 

‘Mr Christian, why have you taken the sails down’?

 

’They were dry, sir’.

Conversely….

 

'Mr Christian, why have you put the sails up?'

 

'They're wet, sir'

A question Kevin:-

Noticing the toad in the above pic is verandah inwards, do you have all your toads facing the same way, or 50/50 in each direction, and why?

 

Cheers

Paul

Good question.

No the Toads do vary, in some instances the stay the same if I have a rear lamp already in place.

In this particular case the Toad came out the storage box this way round so that is how it ended up pointing in the direction it is.

 

No rear lamp fitted as I realised the plastic bracket is a solid lump and needs replacing with a brass one, so the lamp wasn't fitted (another task for the list of jobs!!).

 

It is my understanding that they can point in either direction depending how they where sitting the yard when coupled up.

I am sure someone will put me right if I have got that wrong.

You can always learn new things....
