Tis the season for small helis, tra..lar..lar..lar

On the first day of Chrimbo my heli hit the roof

On the second day of Chrimbo my heli wobbled quite a lot

On the third day of Chrimbo my heli just went round and round

On the fourth day of Chrimbo my heli don't take-off

On the fifth day of Chrimbo...I went down the pub...

Had four pints and a small tod

then to the hobby store to buy a new bod

home again home again to put it together

had to fly inside because of the weather

flew it through the ceiling fan oh what a mess

next verse is Thombo's now is my best guess

It was in the air, with nobody there,
when a tap on my shoulder, gave me a scare,
I turned in fright, as well you might,
and a face said "That's a good flight".

I looked back at my craft as it crashed to the ground,
the pieces were many and flew all around,
I gathered them up with a dust pan and brush,
and set off back home in an angry rush.

At home in dismal contemplation,
I took full stock of the situation,
The pieces laid out on the bench for repair,
almost drove me to total despair.

I had a Ricard 45 as I thought about this,
was it my fault or his that things went amiss,
The moral of this sad story I finally found,
keep your eye on the flight 'til it's down on the ground.

(For the non-pastis drinkers Ricard is a French anis pronounced "Rikar" but in Portugal "Ri-kar-do")

Tom.

We're proud of our little odd odes,
Just love the way that it flows,
You want some help,
Just give us a "YELP",
And ask the one who knows.

Give a G'Day to Keith,
He'll not give you grief,
And a Bom Dia to Tom
He'll be back like a bomb.

A helô na to Burgess,
Will not give you stress,
And your problems will go one by one
Idea Or - maybe I've had too much sun.

(It was down to 22C~72F today! Wink )

Tom.

Reply with quote

T'was on an evening cold nd raw
sat I musing over obscure engineering lore,
with calculus tables stuck in desk draw,
O how to calculate centrifugal pressure;
Donning old ammunition boots did I,
gave the infernal desk a mighty kick,
around and round the desk did spin,
out shot the draw and book within,
through the opened widow did flick
super glue and book now in flight
made contact splat bang with street light.
Now I can see the infernal book by day...and by night.

Love it Burgess!

I was balancing blades in the January sun,
Well - it's a job that has to be done,
When the wife said "I've got a job for you",
I turned and replied "Well that's nothing new".

I told her "I'll just be a few mins with this,
and I'll be there to fix it whatever 'tis",
She said "Its got to be done NOW!
There's a snake in the kitchen WOW!"

Well the snake was a monster 2m long,
It gave me a look that said "Outside I belong!",
So it raced though the door onto the veranda,
While I went and got my trusty camera.



I got the picture when it was down in the garden,
It was enough to make the softest heart harden,
For now I'd have to tend all the plants,
The wife hates snakes more than ants.

I'll give it while and try to smile,
The blades will have to wait a while,
Could be some time before the rain,
Then I can get back to the heli again. Razz

Tom.

Well I thought long and hard about this spam,
Seems quite a problem we have here man,
I thought up a scheme,
It was quite a dream,
I'll have to get it to admin as soon as I can.

Well I fired up the computer I needed to update,
My quads' controller can't leave it too late,
But the fan was stuck,
Put me in a muck,
I had to fix it for tomorrows' fly date.

Well I pulled it right out for the leads are at the back,
And they had to come away to get on the right tack,
And what did I see waiting for me,
A creature as long as could be,
This bug will is not going be so easy to crack.



Well I took it apart, though reluctant to start,
That snake had crawled through every part,
But I got it out,
Wife gave a shout,
When I walked though the kitchen to put it out!

Life is never easy so it seems to me,
Spammers always raise a difficulty,
I had to print a little plan,
But the printer was in a jam,
What would I have do to set it free?

I checked and what did I see?
Another beastie waiting for me,
This one wiggled,
And even swiggled,
But eventually I managed to set it free.



This story really must have a moral,
With that I simply cannot quarrel,
But what it is I cannot see,
It's totally beyond me,
It's as easy as shooting fish in a barrel.

So sort it out yourselves!!! Very Happy

Tom.

Love it Tom, with all them snakes, it must be like going on safari when gardening, or doing anything for that matter.

I've gota mouse, just sits on its mat,
never got close to the printer like that.

When the printer started to run,
just look at his eyes,
he got a real surprise,
couldn't have been much fun.

The closest thing to a snake I've seen round here was a Slow worm.

Wonder if Keith has problems with any critters like that.

I think he might Burgess,

I was talking to him on Skype the other night (me) breakfast (him) and he does have a few beasties in the locality. I never had a problem when I lived on Anglesey (posted to RAF Valley), didn't even see a slowworm, but I did catch lots of fish while spear fishing off Rhosnieger (Black Rock for the non-Welsh) where we lived at the time. That water was but cold, couldn't do it now, got acclimatised to sun and water at 25+ºC. I can stand the odd snake but not the cold and wet!

Gadw'n heini fy ffrind,

Tom.

Well...true it has been know for rain to fall here in Wales and oft is the time that the mountains are capped with snow and the air is bracing, and getting all the hi-tech thermal wet weather gear on and off, cuts out the need to visit the jim. But when the sun comes out it's wonderful.

I'm not sure weather Jones the Voice, did a cover version of Ann Peebles' "I can't stand the rain," "Working in a Coal Mine," or "My farther know Lloyd George," but he did sing about the green, green grass of home and requires lots rain. But when the sun shines we get inundated with day trippers, many in out-door all weather gear, some look as though they've just arrived back from the south pole via the cost path from Porthmadog.

But when the sun shines it's glorious and that's why I got this:
