well, the Cold is a Persistent fucker, still got the cough and runny fucking nose, the meds, well I classify them as Non persistent, actually, fuckimng useless is probably a better call and they can stick Sudafed up their fucking arse. I have never come across a more useless fucking medication in my life, I’m switching back to Codral next time..fuck’em.
Other matters, well landscaping is coming along nicely, got all the main pipe for the dripper system installed yesterday and should finish it off tomorrow, that after I go and pick up all these pavers that the boss lady arranged for me to collect..FUCKING GREAT, hook up Tandem trailer and load the bastards on, the off load at home, possibly prep an area and then re lay the mongrel bloody things..I FUCKING HATE PAVERS, thats why god invented concrete.
WHAT ELSE..OH, ready to sit back a relax tonight when the young fella comes up and explains he has done all of his medieval assignment but needs one more component. WHAT THAT, i ask….A sword…. GREAT!, I gather you need to MAKE ONE, and I’ll bet its due when?..Tomorrow would be my best guess….” steps back and answers YES.
Righto..off to the shed, grab kid and one length of Baltic pine, approx 3m long 50mm thick and 200m wide, trace out a Viking sword , specs of which he had downloaded. Rough cut out the sword, then shap it up with the large orbital sander, add hilts, get tempted to sharpen the fuck outta it, inlay a grip, paint the sword, paint the hilt and pommel ( I think its that nit on the end) and presto, I have managed to coax him through the exercise, lend a hand here and there and blown 2 hours planned for ME!, It is great having kids, just the little buggers occasionally screw up your plans.
So now, tomorrow he will take to school his Viking 9th Century sword which is roughly 4 and 1/2 feet long, hopefully not slap or kill any shits as well. Pics below.
