What made you happy today?

Recommended Posts

I've got some carp that sort of size in my garden pond, been there about 12 years. Ironically it is 18 lb breaking strain fishing line protecting them...by it being stretched across the pond to keep the bl**dy herons out!

Ok so my phone is a little slow loading pics when not on WiFi

Alex I just read your post as

"Had my first crap today, the size of my hand, a good 8-10lb, put up a bit of a fight!"

Needless to say I was glad when the photos loaded!

I read fast. But I struggle reading at all mostly, my head makes up what it want to see!

Anyways...

What made me happy today was just getting back from the F1 simulator place in Gatwick

Bibs, cliff, my father and myself all made the journey over and we had a fab time.

My dad bowed out prior to the start, cliff blew chunks down the leavatory, bibs had a sticky shift and out of 7 people total, one pro, I finished first...

Qualifying was close with only 1 tenth of a second covering me and bibs on the grid, me second and bibs third.

Was a great laugh, I will go again next time I'm local, it was lots of fun!

Took my sister's middle kid (12) on the Lotus club drive Sunday.

He had alot of fun, likes spending time with his uncle, and gets along great with new people like the Lotus club members.

He got to sit in an Evora, Elise, and Seven.

Had a full day of driving, some issues with a '67 Elan with a broken axle joint, and a flat on the Seven. Had lunch with the club followed by further driving to Estes Park CO. Played some video games with my nephew,then we visited my mom in the hospital. Later I saw a movie with friends.

Well yesterday to be truthful...went to Cadwell Park to an MG race meeting. Never been there before. Marion was marshalling in the pits/ start line area so I got an excellent viewing point.

Got to go around in the course car a few times ( Safety car on standby but wasn't used at all thank goodness). Then because we had driven our car down to the control tower area we had the chance to take it ( carefully so as not to get a bollocking) around the course before leaving for home.

Couldn't go again today as have been playing the organ at a church service but Marion is back there all day.

Fabulous.

Now off in the Esprit to meet up with some Lotus friends for lunch.

Cant be bad way to spend a weekend can it?

Fixing my Speedo! It suddenly stopped working last night en-route to the Club Lotus meet in Hinton with Brian Angus speaking. Brian suggested checking out the gearbox take off. Up on the ramp today, it was all easy to see and get at. Saw that the cable collar wasn't propery tight. Took it off, spun up the cable with a cordless drill and proved the cable and head were still working. Reassembled, tighten the collar and greased it up. Test drive proved all tickety boo. I wish all faults were that easy to deal with! :)

Oh and tip of the day. If you use the drill on the cable technique, you need to set the drill in reverse/unscrew/anticlock to get the speedo to register. ;)

What made me happy today was finding out that there is a recently-released documentary DVD about one of my favourite bands, which I went to the store and bought and now I'm about to watch it! :D
