I have been still wearing the mask when speaking with customers, taking it off when I return to my task. With the amount of people through the doors everyday, I'm happy to continue with this for a while.

And yes, not seeing peoples facial expressions can be tough. I think it's nice to be greet a customer with a smile as it breaks the ice a bit, obviously not doable with a mask.

There are a few benefits to a mask though. The customer can't see yawing while they fidget with their phone to show me a pic, or see me grit my teeth when a customer is difficult.....................or the boss for that matter.
I now just need to remember I'm not wearing a mask in the office and my fellow colleagues can see me mouth "You'e a f@!%kwit" clearly when I'm listening to them carry on whilst looking interested

I'm sure I will get caught out at some stage!

Look on the bright side, hopefully they have set a precedent and BLM, Black Panthers etc can now execute the racist pieces of excrement at one of their hill billy, red neck, sister marrying rallies and claim they were only try to help.

An organic handbag.........

Mainly bought it as a treat for the cats, they are well fed and never eat the same catfood in a row, it's only fair, when I'm laying in bed during the day, just sort of aching, my cat will jump up to check on me, usually lays down too, it deserves to be treated, like a child!

Finally sitting down at the hairdressers. Itís been much of a year coming - 12th March was the last time. Actually a somewhat emotional event, a lot has changed since then and itís wonderful to see a familiar face and setting.

Single 12" bit lighter too, so easy call in the end, should be a fun weekend.
Any YT of you rocking out, for us yet?

I'm not one for YT'ing.
I do a bit of home recording (guitar, bass, drums and vocals but not too many people get to hear the result / noise )


Pretty happy with the Boss amp though. LP sounds nice through the clean channel with a bit of delay and reverb. I've not looked into it too deep yet but there is an option to connect a laptop via USB and tap into the full collection of BOSS effects pedals online. I don't normal like crossing the boundaries of music and modern tech too much other than actual recording but I am intrigued.

I had one of those chrome strips all around my TX5 Ghia. I bought some tape and used that instead so something to consider if the paint doesn't work out

First time since lockdown lifted my wife I and was able to catch up with all of our daughters, SIL's and grandkids and have a nice lunch at the Hot Temple in Ballarat; this made my day.

Well I've spent a fair bit of time fixing this plastic chrome strip, and I had it just about perfect, so no crack showing under top coat, I used acrylic spray filler and primer, top coat silver is enamel, so you can paint enamel over acrylic but not acrylic over enamel, unless you use a sealer!

Stupidly I decided to sand the topcoat a bit smoother and wiped it down with "Shellite" I don't use wax remover, only 100% hydrocarbon or Shellie.
Wiped it down after sanding, took the silver enamel straight off, what did I do?........walked away, got in car, went to Dan Murphy's and bought a six pac of Bundy and coke.....

Today's a brand new day, will put a pic of finished product, one good thing though, it may look like metal, but it don't rust
