Getting optimistic about 4 weeks in Tassie Dec–Jan! 42 new cases and NO DEATHS in Victoria today! (I need to drive through Vic to get to Pt Melbourne and the ferry.) I could fly and get back into SA but $$$ for 4 weeks car rental!

We're OK, Pink. Just bored with staying in. We've kept all the windows shut since this began, but we do have AC.

I really hate this. I miss fresh air!

Baron is making the best of it, though ... :roll

You need a pooch to get Baron of his perch! If it is any consolation, I went through the same smoke density etc in Canberra last December. It is really shitty stuff. Get some VBs in and get pissed!

Went and got my growler filled at my local brew pub, and now I’m sitting down with that and a meat and cheese plate, and the NASCAR race is just about to start. Las Vegas this weekend. It’s a very fast 1.5 mile track.

Maybe after the Covid crap isn’t a problem anymore, we could meet out there for the races!!

Saturday, walking from my car to a Farmers Market the hip where the titanium hip now is suddenly hurt like hell! I shuffled to a nearby fence and held onto that for a couple of minutes. Been sore since then. Think a visit to the quack might be in order. All I need, work to be done on the hip meaning I can’t work on my block Dec–Jan :groan

Sorry to hear that, Monk. Hope you get to feeling better without them having to cut you open.

About to take My oldest for his first ever Go-Karting experience .... I think we'll make it indoors for now ... outdoor karts go to fast for his first time.

My big boy turns 11 today.

what fun, will he go solo or are you going to go tandem ?
i think he'll opt for solo ... he likes to think he can do anything. That'll free me up to go tandem with the younger one

If I'm honest, I think the younger one solo will perform better if given the opportunity. I let him steer the car once for a few meters on a deserted road ... no problem and he held a pretty straight line, he wanted to take over completely
I let the older one steer on another occasion and he was petrified. Gave me back the wheel after only a few seconds.:groan

Many years ago, myself, my sister and my youngest niece went for a trip to the snow. Niece, 12 or 13 had asked to have a go driving the car but couldn’t let her drive on the main roads. Just out of Canberra we fuelled and I noticed that across the road was an oval with a track around it. Told niece she could drive the car there and her whole face lit up. She did pretty well, did a lap by herself. I was glad I could keep my promise.
