sleep walking one

Finally, after waiting 10 long years, one half of this very old and (sadly) decaying house, the last of the original three built by same builder in 1920’s, is about to get new windows in the front.

(Btw ... house in foreground demolished and replaced by a really ugly house, and home to annoying barking dogs. Note to self. Kill those F dogs. Even the hedge seen here no longer looks trimmed cos it isn’t unless we do it. )

The rest of the house, sides and back, will be done in the spring.  Just hope the weather holds one more day.  There’s work this place needs but we can’t do it all at once. Anyway …. half the time you can’t get the ppl to do the work to begin with. Even when you agree to a price. They just don’t show up.

Have things to move ahead of time, and computer to be disconnected late today, with everything moved towards back of the room and out of the way.

Two large windows downstairs and two smaller upstairs.  Gonna be a mess for awhile but hopefully once done we can join the 21st century, window wise I guess.

For years about the only thing holding things up has been paint. Everything is rust of the worst I’ve seen.  Better late than never as the saying goes.  Be a relief to be able to open a window upstairs in warmer times.  Haven’t been able to do that for almost a year.  Wish they had window screens here tho.  Windows don’t open inward like home. They open outward.
I’ll be glad when the work gets done and I can relax.  Won’t be back online again till Late Friday, all being well and that includes me.

Had accident of the dumbest sort two weeks ago. Self inflicted cos I was too damn lazy to bother just reaching for a step stool or three step ladder in next room.

Instead, I reached up to grab a box off the top of a wardrobe, somehow lost grip and down it came on the side of my head. Blood running down the side of my head, not my idea of fun. 

By next day the pains started. Not too bad during most of day but really terrible in mornings and in the evenings. Stiff neck too.
Odd thing, doesn’t hurt at all at the point of original contact. Swelling went away in about three or so days.  Pain is all in back of head.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
