We were getting a little off-track showing trucks and motors on perhaps the wrong thread . So putting this one up on here may be a better idea than the Gnu Desktop . thread

The truck is 40 yrs old and in the short few years she has been with me she has saved me a packet of dosh . Hauling timber and all sorts of heavy cargo .

I love and respect her and she gets a lot of TLC .*Because she's worth it * lol..

Those little Land Rovers are sturdy beasts! My friend Ian (releaseroderick/releaseian) from here and my Cabin forums is also a great fan of them.

Update:- I just can't believe my luck . Just now as I am writing this I am listening to the boxed set of the *Concert for Bangladesh* on vinyl . 1971. produced by Harrison and Spectre . In pristine condition .

When CD's started to take over as the media to use a lot of folks started putting their vinyl into the dumpsters . I felt a bit foolish at the time but I rescued them and brought them home to put in boxes and promptly forgot them .

Having lately had some early sunsets and not much to do I started getting them out and putting them on .

So many are in excellent condition ./Classical/HipHop /Rock/ Easy listening/Blues /Jazz . Too many to list here .

Some angel must have prompted me way back then . Now I feel so lucky to have all these .

There is a heaven somewhere .

Also if they get dirty ,the vinyl can be washed . If there are bad scratches, with a jewelers eyeglass and a very fine sewing needle the tracks can be reformed with a lot of success. Can't do that with optical disks.

Discovered it one day when a persistent click would not go away even after scrubbing with the dust cloth . Got the magnifier out and had a look ,there was what looked like a giant bit of moon rock in the grooves . Picked it out with a needle then straightened out the overlaps . Tried it out and except for a very small click over about four revolutions all worked well.

So anytime I get a " rough" disk I go at it with the needle . Not perfect but makes things passably listen-able.Still have to find a way of reducing the frying bacon sound on a really bad record .

Update:- Woe is me Woe is me , Both Greycoat and Waistcoat have gone AWOL. No sight nor sound of them for a week or more .

Sammy and Tux are still here. Tux is getting a lot more used to me at long last . Allowed me to stroke its back and tail for about three minutes the day before yesterday . Sammy is still very wary of me ,though the lad gets to play with him a little .

There is now a another tom in from the wild,a smelly git who is going around marking everything . I just cannot seem to take to him as he will not let the other two feed at mealtimes . He is sooooo aggressive with them . I think I will have to start feeding the other two in the lobby ,just to make sure they are getting enough calories . The weather has taken to laying very deep frosts at night ,so much so that a couple of times I thought it had snowed . The days are sunny but cold in the breeze. Tux comes and sits on the timber pile in the sun when I am working there . The wood shed is just really a roof on piles but there is good shelter there. When I'm finished Tux takes off to the plastic tunnel for extra warmth .

I hope this wandering gangster moves on soon then perhaps my beloved Greycoat will turn up again with Waistcoat in tow .

 

Woe is me Woe is me

If the two "coats" are males, chances are they've just found a girlfriend down the road. They'll be back when they're done courting. I have a couple males (Whitey and Big Guy) who come here to eat on a daily (and nightly) basis. Sometimes, they don't show for a week or so. Eventually, they come back all skinny and really hungry. That kitty courting is tough work. ;)
