Bloody possum
:(
Yep it's that time again, bloody thing starts scratching at 3am, it's in an open carport, so I can not close it out or stop it climbing up the 4x4 posts/timber cladding.
Time to set the trap again.
And, And a pair of bloody Plovers have diecided our front lawn is a great place nest.
Grrrr,
The serenity of country living ;)
Cheers

Funny that. 30 minutes is a long as you would last at this time of year. You'd lose the use of your limbs after 5!

Several years ago, on the Southern end of Spain/Portugal area,  my wife and I were sunbaking on a beach, in a mid 30s temperature. I said to my wife that I was going to jump in the ocean for a cool off.
I proceeded to run down the beach, as you do, and dived into the water.
Well, I almost immediately suffered from headache, earache and 'nads ache! I shot up, out of the water, like a Seaworld dolphin at feeding, screaming to the missus for a towel.
Some of the locals on the beach were pointing at me and shaking their heads but, most were pointing and laughing, including my dear wife. ;D

Fitting a new alternator to the ol girls car this morning when it comes light.

You should see, what is involved in changing one of these.
Late/ish model cars, just do my head in.

Based on what i've seen, this will be a 2 to 3 hour job..... i hope i'm wrong.

That’s without you hitting your head on the bonnet, smacking your knuckles when the spinner slips or accidentally sharting yourself straining to undo a tight bolt!

Fukkin dumb arse rookie mistake today.... all i had to do, was pull the wiring plug on the alternator and as i did, i ever so gently bumped the radiator with it. Instant fukkin leak.
So ****in dirty on myself, i always slip a bit of cardboard in there to protect for that sort of thing.
Just a 61 year old dumb arse rookie today.  >:(
Dumb arse dumb arse dumb arse..... and, i won't see the new rad until tomorrow afternoon.

My only saving grace, was a few weeks back in traffic, the temp fluctuated a couple of times.
Not much, but still did it.
When i was doing the stoopid alternator, i was thinking.......

What's the bet, with brand new coolant, the bloody radiator leaks and i have to change it in a couple of weeks. 

Terrific, managed to solve my own problem.  :'(
