Hi there punks, having a good day? SO what is it then, a leap into the unknown or Jean-Claude Junkers and his ilk's bitches for the rest of eternity?

More importantly, today was Ollie's 7th birthday. I also weighed him Tuesday at t'vet's and he now weighs 34.5Kg, more than double his initial weight when he was rescued.

Some pics:

Not so easy to take pictures of him as he's generally running about like a lunatic.

For his birthday he got 2 doughnuts.

They didn't last long...

Cheers guys, I've just been looking at the original pictures and it's hard to imagine it's the same dog :shock:

Anyway, today I have mostly been...selling my Pug :( I've been watching the value go down and down and I keep thinking it makes no sense to keep it as it hardly gets any use and it's just costing me cash to register and insure it every year while it's just deteriorating. I said to Goran it would make more sense to sell it, he was interested himself but didn't have the cash. Anyway, today he's turned up with a guy who wants to buy it, I didn't even have to do the sales bit, Goran took him up my house so he could have a drive. After a bit of a haggle 3,200€ and on Monday it'll be gone.

It's the end of an era :( :( :cry: :cry:

Wonder if anyone wants to buy my PP2000 here...

Nooooo! :(

Financially though at least it makes sense, hey now you can go out and buy a sports ca..............oh wait.

I know it's expensive keeping a car there so if you're only really ever using the Toyboater then what's the point? you've got your motorbike still :D

Aargh! another one bites the dust. :(

I can see it makes absolute sense, but it's still a shame to see it go.

I think that makes me the only member of "The Team" with a 406. :shock:

You can't get 5 adults and their luggage on a motorbike, nor pick up furniture with one :supafrisk: Anyway, now I've made room in the shed that'll be coming here next week so I can ride it without all the palaver of taking my kit up to my place every time I fancy a ride...

...Teaching* daughter_welly the art* of clutch control* prior to lessons proper.

Now my volvo has a fairly snappy clutch and max torque at 1500 rpm but I had no idea a motorcar could kangaroo so violently.

Been there, done that.
To be fair, son of Doggy picked it up pretty quickly and turned into a decent driver.
Most of the driving schools then had small diesels and were teaching* pupils to slip the clutch and not use the throttle. I taught him to do it properly.
