Well y'know Roehm3108, I'm inside all day today trying a new CAD program, I don't go down to the shed every day as it would end up too much like having a job !! I'm doing other stuff in between my spare time !
Do you ever throw a line in at that beautiful Lake you look out on ?
Wal Robinson rang to say he found some more tools that were used in the Don Factory,, & invited us to take a short drive to Wooragee on the Beechworth Road where he & Anna were staying, to visit & take these if I wanted them. Isn't it amazing what he keeps finding ??. Of course I accepted, & they will be part of my Don Museum.

I don’t think I can agree with you that Surf Tragic has ‘too much time on his hands’. I think he has ‘ENOUGH time on his hands’. As a result his work is the gold standard (as the politicians like to say these days) that we can all seek to reach! Not that many of us can achieve that goal.
Gee ST, you WRITE CAD programs??? Way ahead of my feeble talents!!! I don't actually look out on any lake, unless you're referring to the lake behind the servo across the road where Matilda the Commonwealth Games mascot lived. The servo has now closed and a new one built on the new freeway up the road and Matilda has been revitalised completely. There are other lakes and the Mary River in the near vicinity of where I live, but I haven't tested the waters yet. Not sure it would do my vertigo much good at the moment!!

Oh No Roehm3108, no Roehm3108, I must put that right, I only USE CAD, not a programmer, I said " I'm inside all day today trying a new CAD program," I should have added, "written by Archline", it's different to AutoCad that I'm used to, so have to learn the new commands. AutoCAD won't let you buy their Software any more for a while now only lease it by the year, This lot let you buy it once only payment. It's on trial at the moment, and like all new things, it gets easy once you know which buttons to push.
I thought you were near to Lake Cootharabra at Boreen Point, probably I've got that wrong !! Never mind. I've swum in the Mary River, also fished at the mouth and got up to my ankles in Mullet there, I don't remember the method we caught so many Officer, but we were very young & it was midnight !
Wow, amazing work Ron! It really does look like you’re on the home straight now. We are hoping to have our Don 133 ready for the Nationals in S.A, but couldn’t even compare the workmanship and skills that you have displayed through out your build! Well done 👏 Cheers Anne
