    ah yes.. last monday.....:(

    about 10 mins after I posted that on monday morning, a mate rang up and reminded me he was coming around in 10 mins to pick me up to go down to the marina to help him move his boat off anchor in the river and take it to the yacht club for a boat inspection..... I'd forgotten...

    I took this pic about an hour later, just as we approached the marina a rain squall came through as I drove the boat.... sigh..... lovely... I did have a spray jacket on....

    it was off and on like that the rest of the day..... after an initial inspection at the dock we then motored up river a mile or so to another marina with a boat lift... got wet again during that move.... got the boat out onto the travel-lift over dry land, gurneyed the bottom and chipped off some barnacles ..more showers... the inspector checked the bottom... put it back in the water and motored back the the first marina dock for the inspector to look at more stuff and do an inventory.... he finally finished and we motored the yacht back to our anchoring place got it set, climbed into the dingy and putted back to the carpark and got rained on as we loaded the tinny on the truck.. and drove home in 5 o'clock commuter traffic in more rain... I was dropped off at home in time to watch the 6 o'clock news.... rather soggy and tired... big day.... no food either...

    not the day I was expecting when I first posted.....:lol:

    Hey all,
    Hope you enjoying this sunshine here in SE Qld.
    I just saw a Nashville Deluxe Tele on FB marketplace, for $1,150
    https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1146290205521381

    I never got the Nashville Tele with the middle pickup, to me at least.... it looks out of place and badly made strat.
    But after seeing many international artists play them I guess they're OK, and then stumbled upon this ad.
    Is the "Deluxe" branding any better than the standard USA tele? Last I checked a "Deluxe" Tele model used to be worth $2500+ or there abouts.

    Love the butterscotch blond and would love to ad that to my collection. I guess im hoping for some local knowledge if thats a good deal?

    Maggie is probably thinking “what a weird shaped bird table and that little recess is nowhere big enough for my tucker”

    So.. I spotted a mouse in the house just now.... I thought I saw it the other day out of the corner of my eye..

    ..ahhhhh, some mousesports.... the beast has entered sacred ground...:rolleyes:

    my standard drill..... find the old rusty mouse trap, the old fashioned spring job... cut a small piece of bacon rind off a rasher for bait... 1/4" or so, not much.. open up the small claw with a knife, jam the rind under and squash the little tab down to hold it firm... put trap in the same spot I always use near the back corner of the fridge near the wall, sit back and wait.... mice seem to like hanging under fridges,,,,that big white castle of warmth and security...

    tonight I set the trap, came back to my seat at the pc and glanced at the clock....

    and wondered how long it would take to get the mouse..SNAP!!!!!..:eek:. probably 30 secs, no more than a minute.. poor b'sted...:lol:


    got up walked over and picked up the trap with mouse walked it out onto the lawn and tossed it out for the critters of the night to find.....

    job done...... I need a cup of tea after all that 5 mins of excitement.....:D

    I've never had much luck with the old spring loaded mouse trap. Bunnings sells a single shot device that traps and kills the mouse all in a self contained unit, but at $6 a pop they are a bit exxy if you have a nest of the buggers like we had a couple of winters ago. Nowadays I do a catch and release, but I let 'em go down by the river well away from any houses.

    Bacon bait.... the smell must travel fast...;)

    last year I used the same method.. caught one tossed it out.. reset the trap, a few minutes later caught another one, tossed that out reset and caught a third.... then silence.... all on the same bit of bacon.... cleaned out the whole family from the big white mouse hotel....

    same old trap..when I had the cat I'd just take the mouse out to him and give it to him..he'd hoover it up.... though he never seemed to catch the buggers in the first place.....:rolleyes:

    he trusted that old trap as well....:lol:

    Just for everyone’s information and peace of mind, I just read the ingredients label on some Coles Posh Dog sausages and they contain - “edible beef”.

    Small world Count I was in Tenterfield on the weekend. We took a trip up from the Tweed River Valley and stayed in a dog friendly cottage on Rous St. The dog loved it. Nice town and the country side looked amazingly green.

    We’ve had plenty of rain just at the right time to bring that grass on. Lawn mowers going flat out all round town. PM me if you come up again.

    Heads up for all in Brisbane and Near north of it. Looks like some nasty storms heading your way, if they’ve not already arrived.
