How is everyone getting on with our enforced isolation?

You seem to have bucked the lockdown trend and lost weight, Doc - and blue is SOOOOOO you, ducky!

I'm going to the hairdressers on 10th July! I'm counting the days down until then. To think that when I was 18 I couldn't wait for school to end and I could grow my hair.....

haircut, sir.jpg

Hi Colin

Nice picture, I bet it looked amazing when it was shiny and new with all of its leather pieces intact.

Ashley

My bum looks big in everything.

Dave

I never thought blue would suit me, I bought a clever hair cutting machine from Amazon so now I can cut my own hair, (what hair I have left). I got fed up of shaving so my beard is coming on nicely, given another 6 months and I will look like Uncle Albert

Paul,

I think we all looked better when we were shiny and new (sigh).

But maybe Dave just had a bit of a fuzz.

A very old joke

An old man was riding his bike along the A1 when his chain broke, he couldn’t repair it and was miles from anywhere, so he started pushing his bike on his long trip to civilisation.

It starts raining hard and the poor old man struggles against the wind and rain, then a Ferrari pulls up and a concerned young man asks if he can help, when he realises that the bike isn’t repairable and won’t fit in his car he offers to tow the old man to the next town.

The young man promises to drive slowly but tells the old man to ring his bell if the tow becomes too fast.

Everything is fine for the first couple of miles as the tow proceeds at a comfortable 20mph then a Lamborghini overtakes the old man and makes a rude gesture to the driver of the Ferrari.

The Lamborghini takes off like a rocket with the Ferrari in hot pursuit.

Meanwhile a couple of miles down the road a Police car sits quietly in a layby when the Lamborghini flashes past, as the Police car starts the Ferrari roars past.

“Did you see that Sarge” says one of the officers “they must be doing 120” the Sergeant replies “Yes but what got me was the old guy on the bike ringing his bell and trying to pass the pair of them”

When Nelson died he only stood 5 foot tall.

Now he stands in Trafalgar square and he is 15 foot tall....that`s Horatio of 3:1.

Make your own contribution to the Website

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.

Colin Bishop - Website Editor
