Enjoyed the post....I find a hobby after retirement is a good thing. Could not continue Ham Radio as the resrtrictive covenents on the apartment will not let me have an outside erection (aerial)......so I thought a bit, and as I like model making etc.I srarted to do kits for people and paint and weather them to look more realistic.Keeps me happy, Sometimes you need a VERY steady hand with the painting/weathering , but a blessed change from sinking into obscurity, waiting for the Reaper to show up.merry xmas etc. Howard (midlands)Up at 7, bins out cup of tea.
Appointment at Docs this morning.
After that I’ll be having breakfast, watching some woodturning videos, I’ve nearly finished my first piece on my new lathe yesterday, just needs sanding and some finishing applied to it. It’s a tea light holder.
I only started playing with it last week,(the fecking lathe) practising cuts, setting it up, so much to remember but I’m actually enjoying it. Gives a retired chap something to learn and do and show for the day.
