    Trevor, we've been parted for over five years now, so I'm well into the groove of doing what I want, when I want and making as much mess as I like! Mind you, I do have to clear it up behind me, I share my modelling space with my bedroom. No romantic liasons for me any more...

    Geoff, when me and 'er that was indoors were together, I had a huge garage with all the 'heavy' model engineering equipment in it, a brick shed as a building room, a wooden shed as boat storage, and 'er that was indoors had a wooden shed and a large aviary for all her canaries and budgies. Oh, and a submarine test tank (aka the goldfish pond)

    richard it seems like you had the perfect workshop not sure about the aviary seems like a lot of hard work.

    I was a lucky boy to have that lot, I will admit...the aviary was down to 'er that is no longer indoors, all I did was to build it and assist in the mixing up of the food when there about one hundred or so babies all screaming for food.

    The only bird that was mine was Frank, my Congo African Grey parrot, he was my baby. Bernie and him had a great rapport, they would spend ages swearing and cussing at each other...

    I do miss the workshops and sheds, but with a bit of luck, and when I move home, I'll be able to erect another shed.

    Hi Guys.
    Has the original topic gotten a bit out of hand ?
    There are two sides to being divorced you know.
    Thats when you take a hot water bottle to bed in the winter.
    instead of a good woman.
    Mind you its easy to pop down to "boots" and get a new one when the old one wears out !!
    Before your ichy fingers
    Cheers John.pen out a reply. WATER BOTTLE that is. !!!!

    We do wander off topic a bit John...talking of hot water bottles, I always had one in the cab of my truck. Nothing like it when you're parked up overnight in the far northern reaches of Scotland in the middle of winter! And it didn't take up as much room in the bunk as a woman!
