    You must have sent my your share of good luck. Working in the shed, in thongs of course, slipped and dropped a chisel. Missed my foot by *that* much. I had the presence of mind to freeze, rather than panic and wave my feet all about in the path of the thing.

    I managed to knock a power drill off the bench, onto my foot and put a 1/16" bit into my instep. It then broke off, leaving about 1/2" - 3/4" of bit stuck in a bone. I was wearing thongs of course.
    Surgery yesterday, general anaesthetic and all, plan is to be discharged later today with foot in layers of dressing and an ortho sandal thing on my foot... I am not gruntled.
    i'll be talking to the Tumlaren owner this arvo.
    Sort of the opposite of putting your foot in it ... Sorry to hear it! Hope it heals quickly! Good luck with the boat deliberations!!

    I was hoping for a cats eye but they were fresh out.
    The definition of stupid has got to be the belief that more guns will negate the bloodshed done with guns.

    I did a little googling and it looks in great condition, sounds like the owner just wanted something with an engine? If it was closer to me I'd be next in line. Maybe it would fit on a J24 trailer... Good luck if you decide to get it

    Just had an excellent downpour of rain, which means we don't have to hand water the garden tomorrow.

    According to the news parts of Indonesia are in drought directly as a result of hot dry winds from Aus. No rain for 3 months.

    PNG highlands were having that sort of problem when we left. It goes bad fast. No reserves, no backup, no alternate food supplies.
